He pulled. For a second he made progress, felt the warmth of renewed hope He could make out a darker shape now. could see wildly swirling hair streaming to the water. He pulled again, pulled more strongly. He could not budge the body wedged there so tightly Nancy's body. He knew that from the first instant of contact. The three depressions, the rocks rolled down into the water, cnme to his mind clearly. Rocks levered or pushed into place where they would serve as corks, partial corks. Held by the current, leaving an opening large enough for water, impossible for passage of even Nancy's body. He found the boulders, the rounded rocks, there. Each of them weighing possrbly 100 pounds, each of them moving with the push of water to close the death trap still tighter. He found the rock which ipressed so brutally against Nan- icy's limp body. He clawed at it. His nails tore away from .numbed fingers as they slipped from the rounded surface. He clawed again, reached past j the rounded crown of the rock. 'There was a slight ridge, a formation of some harder rock which had resisted water action. His fingers clenched on it He pulled. He knew the grip on Nancy's arm was tightening painfully with the effort the other arm exerted to move away the stone. There was sudden despair. He had to breathe or die. And he told himself to die U he could not release his wife. A last effort, an effort of desperation which sent sharp pains through his left aim and tboul- SUSPECT By Hugh Lawreooe Nelson T NUSv**ta. j der, pains which registered even 'on his clouding brain. The rock moved toward him a little. It I rolled over. He lost his hold, was l pushed backward from the sud- I den release of the violence of his effort But there was no strain on his left arm. Nancy was floating toward him. She stuck again, and he jerked her free with the last of his strength. She was cradled in his arms when he came to the surface of the pool. For a moment he let the current hold him, while his ears cleared of the roaring, while the red mist gradually lessened, let him see again. He began moving toward the bank, toward safety for Nancy. He saw the pair of legs then. Legs which straddled the beam of the Rash, legs which did not seem to be fastened to any body- But the legs moved. The flashlight rolled, slipped quickly to the water's edge, plunged beneath the surface. For a moment its glow zigLjgged toward the bottom. The light failed. Blackness rushed again into the underground cavern. * t • A MATCH flared, and light •^ wavered in the air of the cavern. It showed the face of Philip Stoneman, and it showed his other hand, outstretched. An empty hand, but one that seemed to be extended in a desire to help. The match went out Philip struck another match. His lips seemed to be moving, but Dunn heard no words. He began moving forward slowly, toward the man crouched now on the safe path. Jim supported Nancy easily in the crook of his aching left arm. His whole body was tensed, ready for any violence which might be necessary. If Philip helped, fine. If he' was there U> binder, he could not be allowed to do so. Philip would be removed, Jim's mind fastened firmly on that simple fact Stoneman's fingers closed on Jim's outstretched hand. With the contact, Jim relaxed. There was no menace in that touch. He could even make out what Philip was saying now. "Me and my big feet, chum. Sorr7 I kicked over the light" Jim put Nancy on the ledge, accepted help himself. Water came from Nancy's lungs as Jim set up the rhythm of pressure and release. He did not dare let his mind hold any thought of failure, and all unbidden, words substituted themselves for the usual numbers of the rhythm count. Some studio chemical for Mrs. Oswald. Lighter fluid from her lighter for Miss Wister. "Gasoline, turpentine, alcohol, chemical, lighter fluid." Over and over, the word* lending themselves for the proper timing. It came at last, the sign for which Jim had waited. To him, the most beautiful pound in the whole world—the sobbing "catch-of-the-breath," and a series, of gasping irregular breitht, as Nancy's body took over.,the duty of supplying life and oxygen. r pHE doctor gave his verdict A "She'll be fine. I gave her something so she'll ileep soon. Keep her warm and quiet for a day or so." When be was gone Nancy made a face at Jim. "Keep quiet," he ordered. "Yon heard what the man said." "I knew you'd find me, Jim. Even—even when I was stuck I knew you'd get there. Even when that person came into the cave after me and 1 threw a rock, I knew I'd be all right" Dunn rubbed the swelling on the top of his head, decided this was no time to bring that up. "How do you feel, Nancy?" "Just dandy. Simply dandy. Every one of npy ribs are broken. I'm black and blue from here to there. My chest is oo flre. And Jim, it's so good to be alive! S* good. A person should spend a lifetime just enjoying air."
