The color faded from Hcrtha's face and a shudder seemed to run through her. Don Wheelwright exclaimed angrily, "That's a"lousy thing to ask her, Fletcher." "It certainly is," agreed Johnny. "But the police are going to ask her that question, if they haven't already?'" "They asked it this morning— between 7 and I) o'clock. They nsked me a lot of things, among other things, if I ... had killed Jess." "And whnt did you tell the police about knowing Alice Cummings?" "I told them that I knew about her. In fact, I told them I had even met her. I also told them I knew about a woman named Maxine and, one named Mavis and one named Madeline and a cigarct girl and four chorus girts." Her face was still pale, but she looked steadily at Johnay "He told me about some of them himself and, well, the gossip columns told me about the others. I—I was still going 1° marry him." "Because you thought you could change him?" n "Because ... I loved him. "That's a very good reason, Johnny said. . The doorman showed concern I do hope, sir, that you will be discreet." "That, sir," said Johnny with quiet dignity, "if why Mr. Car- mlchacl engaged me. Discreet, confidential investigations are my specialty. No one, positively no one, will even know that an estigatlon is being made." 'Thank you, we would appreciate that. We realize that these Ihinfls have to be done, blit after all, this is the Harover Club and our members . . ." The doorman emitted a slow sigh of ecstasy. 'I would like to see the manager." "That'll be Mr. Whltllescy. Right through the door, past the !)cll stand and the door on your right." Johnny entered th« club, walked past the-bell stand and knocked discreetly on the oaken door. The bell captain opened his mouth to question him, but caught the eye of the doorman who followed Johnny Into th« club. The doorman put his finger to his lips, nodded gently. The bell taptaln said, "Mr. Whittlesey U hi the billiard room, sir. H you'd cart to •alt. . . ." "I'll nnd him, thank you, »«ld Johnny. He walked Into I large combination bar and reading room. A dozen or so men Sat in leather chairs reading. A group of sporty, younger club members were gathered about I) table playing.
