He ducked behind a tree, but he heard their voices as they passed. "The German! have entered Athena," The full weight at the news crashed down on Michael Morrison. The Germans would regroup at Athene, and a day, maybe two. would find them rampaging down the Peloponnesus. The enemy in the sky would not be the only menace now. A motor convoy ot M trucks came to a halt on the dirt ro»d a quarter of • mile from the wooded are*. All organiiatipn teemed to disintegrate. The.K>1- dier* poured from the wood* and boarded the trucks. The? needed no prodding from the NCO"» to hurry. No choice but to Jota them. Take the ever-narrowing gamble that Motley and the little man would not flnd him. Take the slim, slim chance the British might yet escape. He hustled through the woods to a point where the road ran close. The trucks sped by. As the list truck bore down h« stepped into Itt path and waved. The vehicle slowed enough for him to race around hack. A half dozen reaching hands pulled him In. The Dunkirk on Wheels eime down from the mountains and i stopped in the town of Kalamal ion the Quit at MetflnU. Toll wM the end of the line. There was no place farther to run. The truck rolled into the square. Three Stukas spotted it immediately. Mike dashed across the square Suddenly his feet flew out from under him. He had stumbled over a dead horse. He lay there for several seconds, mesmerized, looking into the animal's eyes. They seemed to be mocking him, saying, "It isn't my war. either." Mike backed away from the horse and ran for a row of nearby houses. As a rack of bombs hit the square he half-threw himself down a flight of steps into a cellar. Cowering against a wall were an old man and three women. One woman clutched a screaming infant The old man crossed himself and prayed softly. Another women was becoming hysterical. Mike turned hi* eyes Iran the sight Three hours passed before the planet ceased the attack. Mike staggered from the cellar into twilight. The ashes of Kalamai smoldered. The dead horse with the mocking eyet was still lying in the town square. • • • MIKE stumbled down the road from town. A passing truck stopped for him and drove him to a woods which ended about a mile from the sea. Here, the remains of the late British Expeditionary Force awaited evacuation Mike stretched out in his foxhole and looked at the blue iky above him and thought of the dead horse in Kalamai. He thought of the whole fantastic adventure. Almott uneomclously nil hand reached inside the breast pocket of the khaki tunic. He held the small white envelope Up to hit eyet. He frowned at he studied It. Scrawled in Foils Sterjlou's elegant hand, the enve.op* read: 'Sir Thomas Whitely—12 Beauchamp Place. London S. W 3. Kindly deliver ii. person." Mike bit his lip as the impulse overwhelmed him. He ripped the seal open and his fingers dug inside nervously. There was one small folded sheet of paper. He sat up and unfolded the sheet. In Stergiou's ftne writing, there was a. list of names and cities. The reverse side was blank. He looked at the names .listed. Obviously not Greeks—Lf they were, this was some type of code. Mike was a bit deflated By this time he expected no less than some secret formula. . . He read down the list of names: Jon Petersen. Johannesburg. Lorrie Daniels, Sydney Elmer Jackson. Montreal . . . • * • MIKE was burning with curiosity. Who were these people- and what was the meaning of the list? Eqch r?w guess only made him the more curious. Well, one thing was certain. Whoever they were was of extreme importance to both the British and the Germane. The people who were after these names certainly put no price on human life. If the names were found on him, he was at good as dead. What if the names were not on him? He might have a chance even if the evacuation didn't come off. Suppose h» memorized the names—it would be simple—only take t few mo- mentt. . . . There was another reason in back of Morrison's mind. A.rea- son he would not even admit to himself. The experiences of the past days had done much to knock the spirit of neutrality from his soul. He sighed and wondered if be was crazy, He memorized the list, tore the paper to thrtdt and scattered the pieces to the wind. He looked -over th« van expanse of water and on the horizon saw the first of many little black dots. . Ships were moving lnt« tna Bay of Messinil (Tn D« 'Tm practicing to be a car-hop!" TM. B«C. U£.
