Miss," 1 said. "I'm sorry to intrude." She didn't answer. I said to the man. "Dr. Jarrett?" He nodded, his expression puzzled. I took a card from my wallet and laid it on the table. He glanced at it "Bennett," he said, "from the Industrial Welfare Commission. Can't you see me at my office?" ' "Yes." I said, "but I'd like to complete my business tonight." Dr. Jarrett hesitated, his clipped-fingernails drumming the table. Then he sighed. "Very well, but make it brief." He slid out of the booth and stood up. "Excuse me a moment, Lucy." He walked back to the bar. I followed him. "Drink?" I asked him. "I have a drink," he said shortly, nodding at the booth. The bartender looked at me inquiringly. "Bourbon and water," 1 said. I heard Dr. Jarrett sigh impatiently. I said to him, "It's about a man named Frank Osborn." He stopped drumming, regarded me steadily, and then said in nn even voice, "I remember Frank's case very well. It's closed," "Not any more," 1 said. "The Commission has sent me the file and asked me to look into It again. 'He'was on total disability for ^illcosis, of Industrial origin. You' diagnosed his death as due to coronary occlusion. It doesn't jibe, Lungs and heart. When we know for certain which caused death, then the case will be closed." The bartender slid a glass across the bar and I took a small drink. Dr. Jarrett touched a flnger to his thin lips. "But why wait so long?" I smiled. 'The bureaucratic cogs of the Commission turn slowly." "What do you propose to do now?" "You should know, Doctor. Autopsy." "After six months?" I nodded. "I hope the widow will give her consent." "And if she doesn't?" I shrugged. "Then I will request the county coroner to issue an official order." 'I'm the coroner of this county,'* he saW. • r • • "I KNOW. And you were also the attending physician. You signed the death certificate." "Coronary," he said stubbornly. "I'll stand on that. I treated Frank from the beginning. In addition to the silicosis he had this heart condition, a serious one. The silicosis had been arrested. X-rays taken shortly be- tore bis death proved that. Then—" He snapped his fingers 'he went just like that Coronary." "Maybe the lung ailment helped to bring it on?" No," he said bluntly. "Silicosis is a slow death. And, bear :n mind, he had this heart history," I said, "The state was prepared to accept silicosis as the cause of death, without question. The widow would Jiave received $10,000." "» 1 know that," he snapped, "but there Is something called professional ethics." 'Yes, Doctor," 1 said, a trifle wearily. "I've encountered it many tlmw. And 1 admire your profession and respect it. 1 ad- mire you especially, because you were not swayed by the obvious, even though you knew that death by silicosis would result in cash for the widow." "Thank you." "You're welcome. Doctor. Could you give me some details? Were you with Mr. Osborn when he died?" "Yes. I was at his home, along with some other people." "I see," I said. "Were the Osborns having a sort of party?" "Just a small gathering. A few of us had been to an affair at tho school, and Mrs. Osborn had previously invited us to bave sandwiches afterward." "Did Mr. Osborn go to the school with you?" "Yes. He'd been rather confined, and as his physician I thought the outing would be good for him." "You've been very helpful." "Take my word, Mr. Bennett— Frank's heart killed him." "It kills us all," 1 said, "in one way or another. What persons were at this gathering at the Osborns'?" He, flushed angrily. "Names of all witnesses are on the death certificate. Is that all?" "One thing more." He paused and turned. "Yes?" "It Mrs. Osbom refuses to consent to the autopsy, will you cooperate with the state by ordering it performed?" • • • HE was a full foot shorter than I was, and he had to tilt his head a little to look me in the eyes. "Certainly not," he said coldly. "An autopsy is needless. I have given you my professional statement, orally and in writing, as to the cause of Frank Osborn's death. ! see no reason why it should be questioned." "The 1 Commission can exert some pressure," I murmured. : You fellows on the public payroll meddle around in some silly business like this, and let deserving cases rot In the files— no wonder the state taxes are so , high!" He was trembling a little. I gazed at him curiously, and then I said, "Relax, Doctor. Maybe Mrs. Osborn will consent to the autopsy."
