She was an outsize mud scow and Mike wondered if she was seaworthy. The cabin held four bunks ani la galley. Mike stretched out am Icould see up the ladder topside ( Mike began to feel a certain : security. So far, Julius Chesne. (had delivered. Somehow, Ches iney knew his true identity and h knew of the Stergiou list. Per haps he was overdramatizing hi lore of drachmas, for Mjke knew that his capture by the Germans would have brought Chesney ten times the passage money. Mik> also felt an instinctive trust ij the silent skipper, Antonis. At the dock gates of Piraeus there had not been so much as * raised eyebrow from the guards Tvhen Mike had passed through 'with Antonis, Mike creditec Julius Chesney with knowing his businesc. In > half hour, Antonte returned to the boat with two men and a girl. In the cabin, a bull of a man, an Australian named Ben Masterton, introduced himself. The other man was a sallow-faced lad of about 20, a Palestinian named Yichiel. At Yichicl's side itood a frightened girl, his wife, Elpia, who said she was going to join the free Greek forces in Egypt. Mike was going to protest to Anlonis about the extra passage money. He had been bilked, but he decided to do nothing. He was thankful he'd have someone other than Antonis to talk to dur- inp the voyage. The Greek police went through the motions of an inspection, stamped the clearance papers and the Arkadia chugged away from the clock. Chesney had apparently oiled their palms well. Mike became uneasy about the slickness of the operation. It fiat co ,.'-'.,', u^ .<... _ ?PV •-« thought. Tuc :>cu ail w us CUi,iV. Young Yichiel and his brid went to the cabin and huddlec close. The Arkadia cleared the har bor area. Antonis stopped th engine and dropped anchor. "W. stay t: dawn. German orders British submarines. H we move a patrol boat will stop us." Yichiel and Elpis slept locked in each other's arms in the cabn below. Antonis stood at the rail looking from water to sky. Ben Masterton sat aft on thu deck near Mike, his back agains the rail. The Australian bull fancied himself a concert singer. He began to sing softly. He sang his way through all of the old num- ?ers of the baritone repertoire with most of the time-worn lammed up gestures of a bari- one. His left hand caressed his >eard and his right arm swepl the =ir. Mike liked Masterton. Earlier he Australian had told him of four previous attempts to escape. Hey, Linden," Masterton whispered, sliding dose to Mike. "Yes?" "Look. T don't make It a habit >f drinkin' with New Zealanders mt I like the cut of you." Ben ulled a bottle from his jacket. The level of the bottle moved iownward quickly. Ben scratched his head, looked t the empty bottle and nipped t over the rail. "I should a nowed bettern' to drink with a SUDDENLY Antonis took hi? oot from the rail and stood tense, s if listening. Mike poked Ben In he ribs and they both stared ard. The distant sound of a motor cached their ears. Mike and Ben, stumbled to ieir '"ct and went fore beside •UlCUlS. I "Let's get moving." Masterton said. "Hold still," Antonis ordered. "They may turn away." Mike felt his guts turn over. A minute passed, and the motor seemed to fade away. Suddenly it became louder and louder. "I say let's get underway!" Masterton roared with the sweat pouring down his face. The boat was coming close now. They could see its outline about 400 yards to the starboard side. Yichiel and Elpis scrambled topside, bug-eyed in terror. The girl buried her head in the boy'» chest. A siren shrieked. A flash of light streaked across the water. It settled on the Arkadia and caught the five of them in its beam. The motor roared in louder. "Arkadia!" a voice bopmed in tie darkness, "Stand by to be 1 )oarded!" A SEMICIRCLE of German oldiers at fixed bayonet! waited on the dock as the patrol boat ased in. Mike was stupefied with ear. A wave of nausea swepl hrough him as he set foot on the >ier. He closed his eyes dizzily. Ben's strong hand gripped hi« "loulder. A caged truck drove up. The five were thrown in. A con- oy of armed cars escorted the ruck. Sirens cleared a path and he convoy sped from the docks nto the highway toward Athens. Fool—fooll Madness to do busi- ess with Julius Chesneyl Elpis sobbed in the arms of her allow-faced Palestinian, Yichiel. ut Antonis showed no anxiety, le purled his pipe complacently nd stared through the barred oor at the rear of the truck. The convoy arrived at the out- kins of Athens. 'Where will that take us?" Mike whispered hoarsely. "Averof Prison," Ben said. let a hold on yourself, matey, hey're all bluff. . . ." The five captives were taken > a room with walls and floors f stone. Arrayed about them ere two dozen brown-shirted azis armed with pistols and ubs.
