XIX [E MILLER left Room 821 •^ shortly after Johnny Fletcher tore out to sec James Sutton at the Barbizon-Waldorf. Sam had the room about strnightcncd out. when the phone rang. He took it oft the hook. An excited voice said, "Are you the friend of John Fletcher?" "Johnny Fletcher, yeah, him and me are buddies." sufTered an accident." "An accident!" cried Sam. "He was dashing across Madl- lover and I gotla see him right away. . . . 1001 Madison Avenue." Sam. "We'll take you there. Leonard, slop en it." The man beside Sam was almost as heavy as Sam and probably several inches taller. He needed a shave, but the growth of j beard did not quite conceaJ some ' scars on the heavy features. ! THE cab crossed Seventh Ave- exclaimed again. "Why didn't you go up Seventh?" "Relax, chum," said the man "He was dasnmg across mum- son Avenue, against the light, I j "C ' of his might add, when he ran d.reetly I 0 ^ ep j cket and snowcd it to Sam . in front of my car— . I "Just sit nice and still and enjoy "You mean you re the guy who > run him down?" "I'm afraid so, but as I was just telling you, it was really his fault. However, I've taken him to my place. It looks like one of his legs is broken and I'm afraid there may be internal injuries." "Where's he at? I mean, where do you live? Can I see Johnny?" "I think that would be wise. It's, uh, 1001 Madison Avenue, Apartment C.. . ." In the lobby, Sam encountered Eddie Miller. "I just got a phone call that Johnny's been run down by a car," he told Eddie excitedly. "His leg's busted, or some- thin'. I'm goin 1 ove» to see him." Sam tore out of the hotel, signaled to the taxi waiting in, the hack stand some yards awoy. A taxi, double-parked nearby, whipped in front of the other taxi 'and skidded to a stop In the va- .cant space In front of the hotel. The door (lew open. "Hop In mister?" said the driver. Sam sprang Into the taxi nnd it roared away, II was then that Sam discovered there was a man already In the cab. "Oh, excuse me, mister," he said. "I Just got worn that my best friend was run the ride." Sam groaned. "This is a phony. I'll bet Johnny isn't even hurt." "Ho isn't. Now, that's off your mind, take it easy." "You're the one telephoned me. Yeah, your cab was nice and handy outside." "That's right. I phoned you from across the street." "Put nway the roscc*. mister, and I'll show you." "No, thanks. I've heard about you. This is the old equalizer. I'm as big as you are with It." Sam glowered. "What's the idea? I ain't got a nickel on me." "Your chum, Fletcher, has something we want." "Hey," exclaimed Sam. "The limping goose bank—Dial's what you want, ain't it?" "That's right, fat boy." Sam shifttped Dack in his scat nnd some '10 minutes laler. the taxi turned into • narrow dirt road that ran through « heavy growth of young trees. After rive minutes along a rutted, winding road, the cab entered a small clearing and pulled up before a rustic lodge built of weathered peeled logs. "End of the line," laid the nun beside Sam cheerfully. "Climb out now." Sam got out of the taxicab. Leonard, the driver, stayed behind the wheel. "I better go back and get the boss, Sid." "The boss' knows the way out, 1 * the man called Sid said. The cabin was small, but nicely * furnished, in rustic style. There were only three rooms, a fairly large living room and a bedroom and kitchen opening off it Sam seated himself on a couch. He saw a telephone nearby "Can 1 make a phone call?" he asked"To Johnny Fletcher?" "Yeah." "You certainly can call him. In fact, I was going to suggest that very thing myself." Sid crossed to the phone. "New York City," he said. "The Forty-Fifth Street Hotel. The number here is 82R3." He covered the mouthpiece. "What's the number of your room at the hotel?" "Eight twenty-one." SID noddeo. He waited a moment, then said pleasantly, I "Room 821, please." He waited,, then shook his head. "No, there's j no message." He hung up. "Your I pal doesn't seem to be worried 1 about you. He isn't even at the I hotel." [ "lie's probably out looking for I me." Sid made a gesture of dismissal. "About this bank—what did you call it?—the limping goose bank?" • "One foot's shorter than the other." "All right, so It limps. Well, that's all we want from Fletcher, the" Sam grunted. "Ain't you goi it?" "If I had it, would we havt gone through nil this?" Sam suddenly chuckled. "You moan you two birds nin'l the ones who went through our room thii morning and swiped the bank?" Alarm showed on Sid's face. "What's that?" "The bank's gone. We ain't got it any more. It's swiped." (I* Be Continued) "They must have been over to visit his folks again—you can tell they're mad!" "Says she's getting in shape for the Olympics!" >. Q O o 4» tSl ITS rirrV-filTy f THEY CAUGHT THE m->m-mn 11 SENT rOLLOWNG THE sKACTMENTOFA \~l S^EALLSflSHT, IALB3.I 6W STA3<D!WMAON >^ MAJfTKA? J^.
