Mike pushed out at his seat and stretched. He was In a compartment on a -rain. He looked down the aisle and saw other compartments filled with -. \vounded soldiers. Mike fumbled wildly through his pockets He held th* card— MAJOR THEODORE HOWEWILKEN: INTELLIGENCE He itared at the until whit* *n- velope.

On* thing was certain: tie was going to get, out at the whole affair quickly. The fright of yesterday turned to anger. The audacity of that Stergioul The train stopped. There was a sound of digging outside. The door of the compartment opened. A man wearing the Red Crosr arm band of a medic entered. After examining th* wounded soldier opposite Mike, the medic opened his kit and pumped a shot of morphine into the man's arm. "Easy now. chappie, the doctor will M by shortly." The medic turned'to Mike. "IgMe you're up now How are you leeling?" ' "Little the worae wear." "We examined'you when they >ut you aboard last night. Wouldn't locate a wound If you're feeling better you'd best rejoin your unit You'll find them somewhere about on the train." "Whit's the digging?" "Sappers. They're goingi to blow the bridges after th. tut of he mini pis*. We're withdraw- hg into lower Greece, the Peloponnesus." Mike felt his heart sink. He had to make a move quickly "Who's In command of the train?" Mike asked curtly. "Colonel Potter—why?" Hike dished Major How«,-Wll- ken'i cird at the medic. "Find he Colonel and tell him I wish to speak to him Immediately," "Yet. sir." The medic retfeated to the door. "Soldier!" "Y«, Major."Not a word to anyone but Colonel Potter." "Ye*. Hr." The medic left. • » • • • THE reel would be quite simple. Mike thought He'd ex- iliin the entire story to Colonel •otter. H* hid the papers and his own passport to authenticate everything.,' It was. after all, British responsibility. They would .be obligated to escort him back to Athens or arrange a flight out As the last unit boarded the train one of the men attracted his attention. He didn't know why, but Mike found 'himself staring at a short man wearing large horn-rimmed glasses. Perhaps he looked so much out of place in the company of soldiers The man couldn't have beeu much over five feet tall and oi5 uniform literally hung on bin. Another peculiarity—the little man carried none of the oaraphernalia of soldiers. There was only an outsized pistol strapped to hif waist Something about him — something about him. What was it? Yes. he was standing 1C the guard shack at '.he airdrome. The sentry said something, something about a man who was look- Ing for him. A tittle man with horn-rimmed glasief. The little man boarded KM train. Mike tried to reason with himself. Stergiou's office—the Toice that spoke to him from the shadows. The man with the walrus mustache, Howe-Wilken, Ills voice had whispered, "They lave friends, everywhere. . , . They'll get you, Morrison." The train Jerked into motion. • • • THE door opened.
