Wor«e. he *>«• information tnnt tne U*rmnn« want, a coded ll»t of Underground lenders ke wa« lo delirer to London. A Brit Ink Intelligence agent, Soutar, U killed d»il»I <*e «"cape. • « • XII HEILSER had told the American Embassy quite truthfully that he wished he knew where Morrison was and that be was looking for Morrison day and night. He did not, however, mention what would happen when he found Morrison. The Embassy even went so far as to oblige Heilser with two pictures of the American. One from a dust jacket ol a book, another from a passport. Unfortunately one could not identify his own mother from such photos. The trained agent takes certain paths, certain risks. The trained agent puts his mission above his life. Not so the desperate amateur. He will be unorthodox, develop the cunning of a wild animal to keep alive. Heilser reconstructed the chain of events. First, Mosley's call from Kalamai informing him that Morrison had not escaped from Greece and had been located in the B.E.F. Heilser had dashed to Corinth. Morrison had never showed up. Then, Mosley's body was discovered near the beach at Kalamai and Heilser knew the desperate amateur had won a round. Next, Soutar's body was found near the railbed outside Naup- lion. Heilser had questioned every prisoner and guard who rode the train. Heilser was able to establish the fact that Morrison had been on the train with Soutar and that they had tried to escape a few moments apart. Soutar had failed, Morrison had succeeded. Zervos stood in th« drawing room with his hat in his hand. His envious eyes moved around the luxurious suite. Soon my time will come, Zervos thought. Reward from these German louts is small but a man can make his own rewards. He, Zervos, had played the right side. German occupation was a fact. A man does not want to be a government clerk all his life. He thought of some of the wealthy Greek citizens. He, Zervos, had the power of the German police behind him. Soon he would be paying friendly visits to these wealthy compatriots of his. He would advise them, in a nice way of course, that they were suspect by the Gestapo. Zervos could be their friend and benefactor and could arrange protection for them. Unfortunately, such protection would cost quite a sum of money Zervos' dream vanished as Heilser entered. For a second they exchanged stares of mutual hate, distrust and fear. Zervos shrugged his shoulders and flopped his hands to his side in a helpless gesture. "He has disappeared into thin air. We have turned Nauplion inside out." Heilser squashed his cigaret. "Do you know what kind of a man we are up against? We are up against a cornered rat. Nothing is more dangerous, more ingenious than a man who fights for his life." Then Heilser began to recite, as though he were speaking to himself: "He will try to get to Athens sooner or later. He will try to contact someone here. It will be someone Soutar told him to contact. One of a dozen known sympathizers of the British whom we already keep under scrutiny." • * * MIKE MORRISON glanced around at the walls and stopped again and again to gaze at pictures of men with bushy beards or women with startling big black eyes. Scattered around the room were rudely built chairs and tables with a large loom in the center. In an instant his mind flooded with recollections and he bolted up, then overcome by dizziness,, and flopped back on the bed—3 six-foot-wide bed built over an oven. A handsome, tanned girl of 20 stood over him. She had' huge black eyes and her jet-black hair fell softly onto a pair of smooth brown shoulders. She wore a multicolored skirt with a wide belt that reached clear up to her short bolero jacket. "Help me up—I've got to get to Athens. . .." "Calispera," the girl whispered and ran from the room like a startled fawn. Mike tried to struggle up. Out 01 the corner of his eye, he spotted his clothes on a chair near the bed. He reached out and worked through the pockets until he felt a pistol which he placed beneath his pillow. In a few moments the girl returned with a man. * * * THE man was short and stocky and bald except for a horseshoe fringe of hair. He sported' an enormous, neatly waxed, handie- bar mustache and wore a ballerina skirt with long white stockings banded in black around the knees. He had on a white blouse and a small cap falling away into a long tassel, and on his feel were pointed slippers with bright red pompons. The ballerina man announced with much gusto in broken English, "I am Christos Yalouris, and this is my niece, by name— Eleftheria. Eleftheria, takes care of my aged mother in Dernica but I sent for her to attend you. And what is your name?" Mike's hand reached up and felt the bandages binding his head. His fingers traced a large scab which ran from his forehead to his jaw. "I'm—I'm sorry. . . . Forgive me. My name is Jay—Jay Linden," Mike said. "Where—where am I?" "You are in Paleachora." ; (To Be Continued) and Mrs. Abernathy-of Steele. She served a frosted drink in tall amber glasses with a frozen dessert.
