She said lo herself: now look here, St. Clair, you are not— posit iwly not— going lo lose your temper. Across the pool, Miss Jordan was smiling sleepily up at John Henry's attentive face. Sin closed her eyes light and gritted her teeth. Now look here, she began again. But she was on fire, from (lie dark reel page-boy down to the crimson loenails that pecked out of her suede sandals. I don't look so bad, eilher, she thouRht. Jn fact, I look darn good. She was wearing the filmy white blouse that her husband liked and the full peasant skirt. The ensemble chopped at least five years off her age and made her look a saucy 18 again. Anyway, not like a asicie wife ol three years' standing. She speared another angry glance at the couple across the pool. John Henry, was helping the Jordan girl to her feet. Her husband flashed a guilty look at Sin and then the brunette sewed his hand gaily and started to drag him along the flagged path toward the guest cottages. Sin's lips pressed out flat in a thin red line and she clenched her fists. The reluctant Conover was pulled out or sight between screening palms. A few paces away, tnelma Loomis and Mr. Trim were nodding and talking — probably about John Henry. Sin flushed al Itie thought. 1 wo brawny hands appeared on 'he tile bank at her feel. Sin moved out of (he way to let (he swimmer hoist himself from Ihe Pool. She kept KoiiiR, her mind made up. Fists still clenchccf. Sin marched determinedly after her husband. On Ihe olher .<=ide of the palm trees, she felt Die grjji on her elbow, a cold wel hnnd. Sin slued away, slartled. A toneless voice .said, "We had belter have a talk." * * • 'POWERING over her was the swimmer who had climbed from Ihe pool at her feet. His short hair slood up in wet silver barbs. Water slil! trickled down his lean hard face and over Ihe wiry muscles of his darkly Untied body. "Well, I'm sorry," Sin snirt. Annoyance began lo weave into her surprise. "1 have to catch my husband before he—" Iron ringers tightened on her elbow. "Talk first," Ihe man said dally. "One short warning before it's loo laic." His voice didn'l match Ihe vibrancy, the keen aliveness of the rest of him. The words came from between his w*!lo even leeth wilh scholarly precision. But his factual intonation made them colorless words, dead words. The ttamp hand urged her off the main path onto a shady graveled way. "Who are you?" said Sin faintly. Jealousy of the seductive Kaye Jordan harl vanished. The cold light band on her elbow spread by implication to the rest of her body. "A person who permits no interference," was Ihe man's answer. "I'll make you see the reason of thai." Sin found herself trolling- lo keep up with his long strides. They were header) for a huge brick and screen building that loomed through the tropical foliage. She Sir Hubert Wilkiiu, Arctic explorer, took the first pictures of actual fighting ever shown in motion picture theaters—during pre-World War I Balkan wars.

Stronger hands pulled them away again. "Listen to me. My name is Sagmon Uobollom." The name didn't mean anything lo her. "Let me go," Siii sau! again.
