CHEROKEEf Iowa (J) — A state auditor's report on city finances agrees it was a nice ges'ure for the City Council to pass out 22 turkeys to city employes at a cost to the city of S169. But, the report adds, it was an Illegal act. i The report says however, that apart from the gift turkeys and a I few other minor matters, the city's finances are in "very good order."

"A couple of things," Jim said"First, did you deliver any pitch wood to the Carlson place recently?" "Never did," Toby said. "Tried to once or twice. Old Mrs. Oswald she wouldn't have any pitch around, Wanted nothing but dry pine and maybe a little heavy aspen. Says pitch is too dirty." "About your daughter," Jim said quickly. "Tell me, did you or your wife ever give her a doll?" Two fat tears rolled down Toby's face, "We never gave her anything Except away. That's it We didn't have her long enough, and we didn't have anything anyway. No, all we gave Angelica was away." Aflnes couM have given the ng power of compression to negotiate the hairpin turns. His tires slid and left marks as he slammed on the brakes at last in the Carlson driveway Puma Lake rippled in the faint wind which preceded the daily thunderstorm. Philip and Mrs. Hilton sat on one corner of the glassed- in patio, sipping from tall glasses. Agnes Argyle walked out to greet him, Jim relaxed. Nothing was wrong Nothing could be wrong. He started framing a question for Agnes. But the woman was looking past him, looking for something, looking for someone. "Where's your wife?" Sheriff Agnes asked, "Nancy 1 * What do you mean? Isn't she here?" "No. Don't see how you missed her though. She started off about an hour ago. Said she was going to take a walk and meet you on , daughter a doll without Toby'«!>our way back." The now familiar ro^d up toward the plateau had never seemed so long. Each bend held a hope that Jim would find Nancy sitting comfortably on some rock, each empty bend exploded that hope. He cursed himself for the speed with which he had whipped along in his most recent trip. There was a possibility he had passed Nancy. A possibility, but a very slim one indeed. He reached level ground, drove more slowly along the curves which twisted toward the fork in the road- The apparent evenness of the plateau's surface was deceptive. Jim knew a small army could have been hidden in imperceptible folds and gullies. He stopped, got out at the fork- He called, and his voice was tiny in the empty space. Yet there was a path of small footprints leading down toward The Spires, Only .Nancy had small enough feet to make those marks in the dust. * * • TIM felt a little better. Asid« J from Sheriff Agnes' pickup which was parked at the Castle, his jeep was the only car available at the Carlsons', for no servant had as yet returned with another vehicle. And there was no sign of other prints. He would find Nancy safely in the company of the irritable deputy. He drove down the road quickly, left the jeep at the lakeside. Both the deputy and his car were gone. The Spires was deserted, doors now locked tightly. The honeymoon cottage Nancy had liked so much was tightly closed; it had a forlorn and empty air as if disappointed at this latest desertion. He called again, and the slight touch of fear in his voice frightened him still more. He drove more slowly back up the road, looking over each inch of the nearby rocky ground. At the wide part, where Mrs. Oswald had caught her trout, nearly to the point .where the creefc gushed from the high arch in the rock, he caught the glint of sun on metal.
