Following his arrest, Hoo- ver V. Hampton told Judge Mike Foster he'd drunk only two beers as prescribed by his physician. The judge was skeptical. He fined Hampton $20 for reckless driving by drinking. REAL DIARY The diary of.

In the hotel lobby things were bustling with Friday night activity. There was •ome mail in my slot and a yellow hotel form bearing a penciled message: Mr. Bennett—Call Mr. Tweed, Beech Tree Exchange 409*. I went to the phone and asked the hotel switchboard girl to ring Beech Tree 4099. A female answered and I recognized the voice of Miss Nellie Tweed, the spinster sister of Wilbur. "This Is Mr. Bennett," I said. "Mr. Tweed left a message for me to «I1 him." "Oh, yes," she said quietly. "Just a moment, please." I waited maybe three minutes before Wilbur Tweed's nasal voice came on the wire. He was panting a little. "Sorry to make you wait,' he apologized, "but I was down In the basement working on oM Jake Scrode. They found him in the alley behind Barnhart's Tavern—the booze finally killed him. Then 1 heard him clear his throat. "Uh—Mr. Bennett, about that autopsy on Frank Osborn. I've been thinking it over, and —feel it will serve no good pur- been burled for over six months and well, It Just doesn't seem right. This is an old-fathlonad community, Mr. Bennett, and we respect the dead. It would be, well, desecration, and H isn't ai If Alice Osborn needed the Iniuranca money, U in* gat It, which I doubt, rrank last her pretty well 1 fixed and I'm sure she would object—" "I've talked to .her," I said, "and I think she will give her consent" "Oh, my," Wilbur said. "1 can't believe that. She knows that Frank died of a coronary attack . . ." "Perhaps," I said, "but 1 think she will be sensible about it. It will certainly do no harm, and as long as the state is willing to go to the expense of the autopsy I .can see no reason for her to object." I heard him sigh. Then he said, rather stiffly, "I want to cooperate with you, Mr. Bennett, but under the circumstances I'm afraid I can't let you use my facilities for this post mortem examination." "Why not?" "Well, for one thing, it would be bad for my Business. People are funny about things like that. The next time they have a bereavement they'll go to some other mortician. I'm sorry." 'All right We won't count on you then." 'No hard feeling, I hope? You understand my position?" "Frankly, I do not, but we'll make other arrangement!—if we do the autopsy." "Then you may not do it?" he aaked eagerly. "It depends." "Upon Alice, I suppose?" I HAD probably been lax in not Mrs. Osborn pcrsonal- Jarrett and Wilbur Tweed had a chance to talk to her. The phone rang, I got up and answered it 'Mr. Bennett?" aaked. 'Yes,' a ao« voice Tree, this anernoon. Hamem- ber?" Oh, yes." I — I have favor to ask." She paused. 'A favor?" 'Yes. This may sound odd, but —are you going to do an autopsy on Frank Osborn?" "Yes. Did Dr. Jarrett tell'you?" "That's right—after you talked to him at The Oasis." 'He's opposed to it" I know. He told me it wasn't necessary, that his diagnosis of the cause of Frank's death was correct, and that if Alice permitted the autopsy—after all this time—it would start gossip around town and stir up silly and unpleasant rumors. You know how small towns are. Dick—Dr. Jarrett—said he intended to advise Alice not to sign the release." 'I expected that" 'But you're going ahead anyway?" "We'll see. Look, Miss Dorn, I appreciate your interest, but I'm curious—what it this favor you want?" "If—if you do the autopcy, may I watch?" * • • I WAS surprised. "It's not a pleasant thing to watch." "I promise to stay out of the way, and I won't faint, or anything. Please." "I can't understand why—" "I have a very good reason," she said quickly. "It's not just morbid curiosity, really. Please try and arrange it" "1 can't promise. Ill have u> let you know." "Oh, thank you. Goodby." "Just a moment. Miss Dorn. I have a favor to ask of you. "Tell me why you whisked Dr. Jarrett away from the Inn this afternoon, before 1 had > chance to talk to him." She sounded flustered. "1 saw you in the bar mirror." "I—I'm sorry," she said. "I knew you weren't sick, that you Just wanted to see UM doctor about some dreary Insurance matter. I was Just trying to pro- 'Thls Is Lucy Dorn.
