VIII J OHNNY closed the floor and turned to Sam after Madigan left. The la tier's face showed concern. "We gonna sell these coins, Johnny? Our room rent's due tomorrow." "No, S.-im," he said. "We're not selling these coins until we can make a good deal on them." "But how're we going to raise $36?" "Thirty-six dollars," mused Johnny. He walked up to Sam and took the lapel of his coat between his .thumb and forefinger. "No!" cried Sam. "You ain't goin 1 to hock my suit. You did that once and I had' to stay in here all day while you—" "Don't worry, Sam," Johnny said, "they wouldn't give me over seven or eight dollars for this suit. But did you ever notice the • kind of suits Peabody wears? Rcril nice material — must cost him $150 a suit, maybe $200." "Yeah, he's quite a dude," admitted Sam. Then he reacted al-arply. "You ain't thinkin' "Burglary? You know, * I wouldn't really steal—not even from a ghoul like Peabody. But borrowing isn't stealing, Is It?" "Pcabotiy wouldn't lend you the sleeves out of hts vest." "Oh, I don't think he's that bad. He has compassion for his fellow man and when lie Is com- 1 . - : lo lotl: a ;;ucst out of his room it ic oul/ Uio cxi^Wiciw of i our modern business system that forces him to do it." "What"re you talking about, Johnny?" "Peabody. I'm trying to poinl out that he would like nothin more than to help us out—if he could. I think it's our duty therefore to help him to help us I'want you to go down into the lobby and watch Peabody. As long as he stays behind the desk fine, but the moment he comes put and heads for the elevator I want you to grab the house phone and call Peabody'a room—" "He'll still be in the elevator, won't he?" "He'll be In the elevator, but I'll be in Peabody's room." "You ain't goin 1 to rob him?" Sam cried, "Of course not. I just got through telling you that I'm go< ing to help Peabody help us— well, never mind, just do what I tell you." "But how're you going to get into his room without a key?" "The passkey, how else?" Johnny drew a key from his pocket and exhibited it. "I've had this for a long time—just in case . . ." » * • "WILBUR PEABODY, Forty- Fifth Street Hotel," said the pawnbroker, writing. He got $36 from the cash register. Johnny counted the money. Thank you, Uncle Charlie. I'll jo back In a day or two to pick up the suit." Outside, Sam Crngg heaved a great sigh of relief. "I should mve held out for $40," Johnny said. They crossed Eighth Avenue and were about to turn into forty-Fifth Street, when Johnny caught sight of the lettering on small .store frorl; Uimoiaal * Cftia Stle*. j "Now we'll see wnat these coins are worth." They entered the store and a heavyset, bald man of about 40 looked up from a stamp catalog he was sludying, "You buy rare coins?" Johnny- asked. "Depends what you've got," ' was the reply. "I'd ccrtanily: never refuse an 1822 half eagle." "I sold the one I had last 1 week," retorted Johnny. He brought out a handful of coins. The dealer wrinkled his, nose ini disgust. "Indian head pennies!" ''I've got some Barber head' dimes here, too. Look." "J don't have to look. How? mnny dimes and quarters you got? How many pennies?" , "There's 12 quarters, 98 pennies and 24 dimes." The dealer nodded. "That's $6.38. All right, I'll pay you two for one for the lot. . , . Mmm, $12.76." 'Are you kidding?" cried Johnny. "Some of these coins are rare. The catalog says that an 1872 Indian head is worth 30 bucks," "Uncirculated," replied the dealer. "These are worn, some of them pretty thin." He shrugged. "According to the catalog—" * * * "CATALOG prices!" cried the dealer. "Don't talk to me about catalogs. Those prices don't mean thing." .... "Look, H said Johnny, pointing to a display in the showcase, "you have some Indian head pennies right (here. How much would you charge me for an 1804-L—?" "Oh, you want to buy? Thai's iifTcrcnt." The dealer reached into the showcase and brought out a card of Indian head pennies, "I just happen to have a lice 1B64-L penny that I can let you have for, uh, $18," "Two cents," said Johnny. 'That's what you oftcrcd me!" "Look, mister," said the dealer, 'you got your business and I Rot mine. Two cents apiece for the wnnics, 20 cents for the dimes ind 50 cents for the quarters.! Take it or leave it." 'Goc ;.'," K;.i'-l Johnny. New Awnings—Awning Repair Phone 3 - 4-2-9-3 SMITH AWNING CO. (Formerly Ford Awning Co.)
