His head hit Kilkenny's midriff, his left hand struck the bill collector's right arm nnd closed around it. . Kilkenny cried out hoarsely in pain and the sun clattered to the flrx>r. Johnny scooped it up just ns S:tm hit Kilkenny a short chopping blow on the chin with his fist. Both Johnny and ,Sam stood op. Kilkenny's eyes were closed nnd he was moaning. Sam prodded him with his bare foot. "1 hardly hit you." Kilkenny got painfully to his feet, but the fight was gone from him. "Girnm* my gun," said Kilkenny, holding out his hand. "Ixnny," said Johnny. "You pull Q gun on a man and he tnkes it away from you, it's his gun." Kilkenny pointed to the limp-' ing goose bank. "At least, cnn I have that?" "I just told you—you lost,** Kilkenny scowled. "Watch yourself, Fletcher. When you're least expecting mo, I'll P°P up— : and the gorilla won't be around." "Gorilla!" cried Sam, nnd mnde mmthcr lungo. But the star of the Acme Adjustment Agency collection force had had enough. He whipped open th« hall door nnd leaped through. Sam, In p.-iin — ^ !•' 3d Ihc door and "That's what I like before breakfast," he cried cheerfully. "A workout." A half hour later Johnny and Sam sat in the Automat, with Sam polishing off his second order of corned beef hash. He looked wistfully across at Johnny. "Suppose I could have another order, Johnny?" No, yovi've had enough to eat now. Sometime during the day I'll get that advance from James Button, then you can fill up. Right now, I think we'd better start earning that money." "Where can you start on a deal like that?" 'The man who could probably tell us more about young Smithson than anyone is old Jess Carmichael." Then, as Sam winced: "He'll probably be busy with the police commissioner this morning. I think maybe we'll try it from the back door." . "What back door?" "Alice Cummings's." THE receptionist at the Chateau Pelham tore oft her headphone as Johnny arid Sam walked past her desk, headed for the elevator*. "Just a moment, please!" Johnny grimaced, hut turned back. "We're just going up to sec Miss Cummings." "I remember you both. And I do not think Mis* Cummings will want to see you." The operator ado a phone connection, waited i moment, then said, "Miss Cummings, those two men who were iero yesterday. . . . Yes, that's right , , ." She showed surprise, ;hen nodded, "Very well, M.tss Cummings." She broke the connection nnd said disapprovingly :o Johnny, "You may go up." Alice Cummings closed the nor. "I'm glad you f--^" v'l? cldrcsbinj; Johm.y, 'i \ws a little short of money yesterday. But I have it now." "We're all squared away, financially." "But I was wveral dollars short, wasn't I?" Alice Cummings crossed to a table and picked up a red leather purse. "I always pay my debts. Let's sw, the total bill was $74, I believe. And T gave you . . . how much in bills?" "Fifty-seven. But—** "Then I owe $17." She took out a fat roll of bills and began peeling off notes. "Now, if you'll give me back the little bank I gave you for security . . ." "I haven't got it with me," said Johnny, "but don't bother. I accepted them in full payment." "I want them back. I've been saving them for a long time." Johnny hesitated. "I don't know whether I still have them all." "You had no right to spend them. They're rare coins." "That ain't what the coin dealer said," Sam exclaimed. 'So!" 'Ever hear of a man named Kilkenny?" Johnny suddenly shot at her. "J. J. Kilkenny?" * * • "LOOK, Fletcher," Alice Cummings said bluntly, "I don't give a hoot and a holler for this J. 'J. Kilkenny. I've paid you your money and I want that goose bank and what's in it. And I want it now." Johnny said, "How long is H since you've seen Lester Smithson?" Johnny was not sure whether the name scored or not. Alice was already pretty angry. She exclaimed, "Who's Lester Smithson?" "Jess CarmichaePs cousin." "I'm not talking to you about Jess Carmichacl. All I want from you is that bank and the colni it contained. I want it today—ns soon as .you can get it:" Johnny held out his hand for the $17. "All right, Alice, you'll have it. 1 * Alice drew back. "Not so fast, you'll gel this money when I get mine." (lu He Colilir.u.d) WE BUY USED FURNITURE PHONE 3-3122 Wade Furn. Co. Pennzoil Z-7 For the first lime ... a motor oil that UNLOCKS HORSEPOWER!
