It was well alter 2 o'clock when 1 left the dining room. IFrom a phone booth in the lobby 1 placed a •«!! to my partner, Al Purdy, at his home In « suburb of the state capital. Al was a • veteran Commission investigator who had o n originally •assigned to show me the ropes, il .reported 'Beech Tree. "Check O'Connor, will you?" 1 said. "Let me know what he wants me to do. The autopsy is tentatively scheduled for Tuesday. If O'Connor thinks we should drop it, I don't want Van Horn chasing up here for nothing.". 1 went .up to my room, took off my cot! and ecktie, and lay on th« bed. A soil June breeze blew in the window and the Saturday afternoon traffic sounds in the street ftv« "floors below came faintly up to 1 closed my eyes and dozed a little. The jangle of the phone aroused me. I got off th« bed and answered It. "Mr. Bennett?" The soft voice was familiar. "Hello, Lucy." "You. recognized m >' voice?" "Sure, but maybt I ihould nave addressed "you u Mix Dorn." 9h* hesitated (or only an Ifi- »Un!. "Could I come up M your on my mission in room, then? It'll on»y take a few minutes.** "Come on up, by all means. Room 518." I put my necktk back on and ran' a comb through my hair. I was attempting to brush gray cat hairs from 'he cuffs of my blue flannel trousers' when the soft knock c -:e on my door. 1 opened the door and she stood there smiling, half shyly. "I—I'm sorry to bother you," she said. Her smile was uncertain, but it s) owed small white teeth behind the curve of he 1 lips, and her blue eyes beneath the sand- colored brows were bright and very clear. I mptioned to a chair by the window. "Sit down, won't you?" • • * SHE moved to the chair, deftly gathered the skirt beneath her legs, sat down, crosses her slim ankles and looked at me brightly. "Do—do you know yet when the autopsy will be?' I shook my head. "There may not be one—since Mrs. Osborn was killed. I'm waiting for a call now." I sat on the edge of the bed and offered her a dgaret, She accepted one. Aa 1 struck a match for her, 1 said, "Really, now—why do you want to watch it?" She Inr.aled smoke and gazed at the celling. "Oh, I'm Just— interested." •"I fee." "I 'was sorry to hear about Alice," she i*i<t. "1 liked her. The whole town !• shocked." "Yes." 1 wa« faintly annoyed. "Is 'hat all you wanted of me?" She drew nervously on the cigaret. "Sheriff Comwallli told me that you iound her," "That's right." She leaner forward, her llpt p»rted. "WM there * lot of blood?" "No. Disappointed?" A dull fli»h touched cheeks. "Really, I'm not jiiat—. morbid, but—** "Interested," I finished for her. "You said that." I paused, thinking that il she wanted the details, I'd give them h. her. "Mr*. Osborn was shot with a small- caliber bullet It entered her chest. ..ear the heart. She died almost instantly. She was wearing a print house dress, no stockings. The bullet came through the kitchen window screen and struck her as she was standing by the sink. When I found her, she was lying on her back on the floor. Only a little blood had seer from the wound. Her eyes were naif open and she seemed to be smiling a little. I called the sheriff. He came with Dr Richard Jarrett, who is lh« er. . . By thf way, has larrett issued a statement yet?" The phone .'ang. "Wait a minute," I told her, and picked up th-; phone. "Yes?" * * • IT was Austin O'Connor. •James?" he asked ill his high precise voice. It had been only recently, that he had lowered the official bars to tl extent ol addressing me by m) first name. For six months it had been a frosty "Mr. Bennett," because I'd been an .utsider foisted upon him by the Commission and he hadn't quite trusted me. So now I was pleased with the "James," realizing that it was not in hii stuffy bureaucratic nature to unbend sufficiently to use the more familiar "Jim." "Yes. Mr, O'Connor," I said. His voice held an executive crispness. "James, Al Purdy informs me that you're having a little difficulty with that Oebom case?" "A little, tt'i just a question of whether or not you want me to proceed with the autopsy, now thai the beneficiary, Mrs. Osborn, is dead." "You have, the release signed by Mrs. Osborn?" "Ye». «ir." "Then proceed, by til means. I will instruct Dr. Van Horn t« meet you on Tuesday ai sched- , Hied." her I <Te Be Ce.Mr.wd) « GUESS WHAT?
