Th« dying sun Blanting into the car m»de moving shadows on her face and I couldn't tell what was in her eyes, sadnesi or indifference. "Can I get some music?" she asked in a brittle voice. "Please do." She pressed three buttons before music cam* out. It w»s •mooth, all muted brass and strings and the velvet beat of drums. She leaned back »nd closed her eyes. The roid began to detcend into the haze ot the Steel City valley. The sun was down behind the hills now, but probably still shining on the flat plains of Ohio Mid Indiana, «nd the dusk e»me •quickly. I switched on the car's (headlights, made a sharp down- winding curve, braked gently and then fed gas as the ascent loomed above me. I said, "Do you have any suggestions?." 'l "About what?" "About where to eat." I,kept 'my eyes on the curved climbing toad. "There's a little place up ahead," she said. "The Buckeye Club It's called. I hear they have good sandwiches." It was no belter and no wort* than a million other places. • long room, a bar, booths ilon| the walls, tables and chain In ,the center, • )uke box and i small dance floor, the smell of 'beer and frying fat'and tobaccfl smo''e. Thcrf- ware a tew men ni the bar and some couples in tM booths and at the table*. Two [iris in blue waitress uniforms lurried about with trays of drinks and food. We picked an empty booth near the bar. One of the waitresses came up and gave us a bright smile. "Good evening, folks. What'll it be?" "Two martinis right now," I told the girt. "We'll order later." "Yes, sir." She moved her bright lips silently as she wrote on her pad. Then she smiled at us and walked briskly to the bar. When the girl brought our drinks, we talked of a number of things; books, movies, the chances of the Cleveland Indians, and swimming. I noticed that she carefully avoided any mention at Dr. jarrett or of the death of AHce Osborn. I knew that she was purposely avoiding the subject. Presently we ordered hot roast beef sandwiches, French fried potatoes -and head lettuce salad. I paid the check, tipped the waitress, put on my hat and strolled to the juke box and idly glanced over the selections. Nearby 1 heard a thick voice say, ". 'Mother drink, double." • * * I TURNED. Wilbur Tweed sat hunched over a glass in tbe last booth. I moved over to the booth "Hello, Wilbur." He looked up at me, but it took him • couple of seconds to focus hi* slightly bulging pale blue eyes. Then he said, "Oh, it's you." He wore his black suit and the black tie was twisted sideways In the slot of his stiff white collar. "How are you?" I asked, a silly question. He lowered nil head, "She 1 * gone," he said in a voice so low that I barely heard him. "Alice ti gone." '''••'_. He looked up at me. Then were lean in hi» «yet and hi mouth quivered "Why rl|d ho di that to me?" he asked brokenly "Do wlial? Who?" I asked him. "Abner Cornwallis. Why didn't le call the mortician from Indian Landing?" He squeezed his eyes hut snd clenched his long pale lands. "I—I'll never forget how he—she looked...." He gazed at the empty glass and appeared not to have heard me. Lucy Dom stood there gaz- ng at Wilbur Tweed with some- hing like pity in her eyes. She opened her mouth as if to speak o him, but I touched her arm and shook my head. Gently I tugged Lucy Dorn's arm and we went out into the cool summer evening. In my car she said, "I've never jeen Wilbur like that. All he ever drank was beer," "He loved Alice Osborn," I said. "He was going to marry her. It was a shock to him when he saw her dead. We should have spared Wilbur, and called the other undertaker." "It's hard to know what to do In a situation like that," she said. •Maybe Wilbur would have resented K « yo* hadn't called lim." • • B SHI said, "I've always rather !lked Wilbur. Tor year* his sister has dominated him, mothered him. Not that. I blame her. Nellie was once a friendly girl, but after Doyle Murdock —he's the man she was engaged to—was killed, she changed and seemed to turn against the world. She devotes ' tier life to Wilbur and the funeral home." "Poor Wilbur," I said. "His one chance for marriage is gone, and new he's stuck forever with a sister with a mother complex'. Did Nellie Tweed approve of Wilbur's marriage to Alice Osbom?" "I'm not sure," she said slowly. 'Wilbur's happiness is Important to her, and I think she liked Alice. And Wilbur told me last week that she's consented to be bridesmaid." The mother-sister and the son-brother," 1 said. "The psychiatrists would have a namis for it." Wilbur Tweed lurched out at the Buckeye Club. Lucy Dorn said: "We c»nt lei him drive home."
