Phone POplar 2-2302 SUSPECT By Hugh Lawrence Nelson XXX O N the top of a flat rock in the middle of the creek was his own revolver. Droplets ol spray glittered in sunlight. Its muzzle pointed directly toward the hole through which the creek found its path of exit to the lake. Jim wader) in. The water was cold, but with the healed overflow from the swimming pool on the other side of the rock barrier, it did not have the deadly cramping chill as it swirled against his legs. He pushed past the flat rock, stumbling over water- rounded stones, and reached the cavern entrance. The path he followed ended abruptly in cold, damp stone. He left his rock path, waded into this new pool, found the undersurface opening which let water gush through. A large enough opening so the force of water was not too great for passage. He filled his lungs and dove beneath the surface. He inched along the passage, clawing at any projection from the water•smoothed walls which would .give scant handholds. His cars were roaring, his lungs bursting with the spent oxygen burned in the effort of his progress. He kept his eyes open even against the pressure of moving water which sent an ache clear to the back of his head. Was that light, shining through clear water? He began raising his head carefully toward what he hoped would be the surface. The ache of his lungs increased the speed of that rise, the body's demand for air was greater than the mental command for caution. There was no warning. There was nothing but a flash of shock. There was a vague dream world of strange comfort and quick motion. There was another and more violent shock. Jim found himself back in the blinding sunlight, pressed against the ledge from which he had fallen into the first pool. But that jolt and the shock of light had cleared his head enough so pain registered. Pain and determination. He pulled himself into shallow water, splashed along the creek, fell full length on the bank near his jeep. He coughed, retched, managed at last to replace some water with life-giving air. He pulled himself to his knees, began crawling toward the jeep. His strength came back quickly, let him get erect, into the car. He started the motor, left the jeep in low gear and drove up the winding road. His panting breath seemed to keep time with the snarl of the motor. • • • * J IM did not overestimate his ability. He knew he did not have the strength to try again against the currenL But from the other side, with the current. The idea of a possible passageway through the huge rock base of Lion's Head had occurred U> him, of course. It had been something to be checked, just w the possibility of a ledge along the base of the cliff near the lake must be checked. Obviously «uch a possibility had occurred to Nancy. He drove faster now, and he still hoped. Perhaps Nancy, with her smaller but strong young body, would have been able to negotiate the passage. Perhaps she had been able to control herself, had not stood up so quickly at to knock herself sillr against rock ceiling as be believed he had done. Perhaps he would find her, dripping and thrilled with the idea of her contribution, at the end of the creek near the heated I He would not let himself think of Nancy caught in some underwater crevice, fighting out the last of her life in a useless struggle against unfeeling rock and surging water. He drove fast, but the minutes were ages long until he reached th<. swimming pool, deserted now, and left his jeep. This time at least he did have the forethought to take a flashlight along from the glove compartmenL At this end of the cavern, there was a well-worn path at the side for the first 50 f«L His light shone down into the translucent water, showed innumerable fish darting around in the glow. The path showed signs of many feet, but not of recent passing of wet feet. There was no evidence of water drops falling from soaking clothes. Not until he himself passed through the cave to the ending wall of rock, TJ~IS Kght showed an opening •"• through which the water surged onward. A small-appearing opening, doubtless distorted by the water itself. It showed him three depressions on tb« path itself, and three onei through the dust where heavy object* had been rolled to the water. He wondered vaguely why rocks should have been rolled into the water. A chill shook his whole body, and his mind was equally coM with low of hope. Time wu a traitor. Elapsed tine was a killer. Too much tima had passed. Too much time! Jim wedged the flashlight carefully on the bank, left it glowing. He edged cautiously into the water, iwarn toward the underwater opening. The light glinted from myriad bits of mica in the rock walls, brought a transparency to the water itself. Jim detected movement first, then saw the pallor, the white flash of skin in the water's depth. It was a hand. It wu an arm. He did not remember crossing the remaining distance, but he felt a stiffening of muscles a« hhi hand clamped around a slender wrist, and then a dreadful relaxation. a»*K DELIVERY SERVICE Phone 3-4507 Hours: 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. with Delivery to 7 p.m. WOODS DRUG STORE 221 West Main St. /f/ontaomei'ii (A/ai-d WARDS PAY HALF INSTALLATION COST Now, Wards offer to pay one- half of the Installation cost of A rebuilt motor for you.
