DlSTRIBUTIO JY HIA" SCHVICt. IMC XXIII T PHEY adjourned to the manager's office, just inside the lobby. There. Mr. .Whittlesey said, "I did not know Mr. Smithson too well. He was one of our younger members, only a short while out of Harovcr. And you Iknow young men. High spirits land all that. Of. course a Harovcr iman knows how to drink; still at 'that afie - •" Mr. Whittlesey 'smiled indulgently "You have !to make certain allowances." -"Smithson drank too much?" Johnny asked. i "Oh no, sir, I did not mean to imply that." "When Mr. Smithson disap— left, rather, did he give up his room?" | "No. he did not. We ask our ! resident members to notify us when they intend to be gone from their rooms any length of time, but Mr. Smithson neglected to do that. We held his room, just as ft was. for some time and then we removed his effects." "Ah, yes," said . Johnny. "I want to ask you about that. Who removed his effects?" • "One of our porters Naturally, j] supervised the operation." 1 "Good. Now, think a moment, .what wns your impression at the time? I mean, had Mr. Smithson token any effects with him— clothing, personal belongings—7" "I don't hove to think about thai. I recall distinctly thnt I w.i5 niihor surprised nt the time. His room was exactly a? If he'd gone out for an evening and hod not returned. His clothing, «" ot it. as nearly ns I could determine, wtw in his room. Except for p what he was wearing, naturally. His shriving %(*r. even his toothbrush, vas in his room. Thnt xvo; nil the proof I needed. Mr. Smithson did not disappear «f his own free will." "Don't think over my next question, Mr. Whittlesey. You've had all these years to form an opinion. Just give me thnt opinion, upon impulse. What do you think happened to Mr. Smithson when he walked out of this club 12 years ago?" * * • MR. WHITTLESEV did not respond properly to Johnny's question. "Something happened to him, that's all I'm certain about. He was involved in an accident, or—or he was a victim of amnesia." "Because he was experiencing an emotional disturbance — his feud with young Carmichael?" "No, sir, I did not mean to imply that." "You wouldn't go so far as to say then that Mr. Smithson might have been murdered?" Mr. Whittloscy cried out in horror. "Oh, no ... Not—mur- dorl" "Let me try this for size, Mr. Whittlesey. You will concede that there was bad blood between Jess Carmichael and his cousin?" "They were young, Mr, Carmichael was a bit, well, hot- tempered." "All right, Smithson went off. He laid low,, waiting his time— his opportunity. At long last he found it—nnd killed Jess Car- michocl!" "He waited 12 years, sir?" "After 12 years no one would suspcc.t him. He could wait another year, or two, then make his reappearance and say he'd been in the Belgian Congo, hunting gorillas, or prospecting for uranium. Or he could say he'd boon a victim o/ amnesia all these years and that he suddenly recovered and found hlmscl f working as—a clerk In a Cnr- michael grocery store." "I'm nfrnid that that Is .stretching credulity a llttlft too far." 'Well, try this one. Smithson had a fight with Jess on the day of his disappearance- Later that day he told Don Wheelwright about it. He worked himself up to a fine frenzy and went to have it out, once and for all, with young Jess. They hnd it out and Smilhson lost." Johnny paused significantly. "Carmichael killed him!" "Oh, no!" Mr. Whittlesey cried out, aghast. Johnny shrugged. "I've given you your,choice of several .theories. You don't like any of them. You try one. What about Jess Carn.ichacl?" 'I should think," Mr. Whittlesey said stifTly, "that should be obvious. Young Mr. Carmichael got involved with a—a woman." "One of the neighbors heard the shot after she'd left the apartment. Some minutes later." * * * MR. WHITTLESEY hesitated. "Perhaps someone entered her apartment after she left." "A man named Harry Flanagan, for instance?" "Flanagan? I don't believe I know the name." 'A hoodlum, a no-good—perhaps a gigolo." "Ah, yes!" "Perhaps he was afraid his meal ticket was going to b« punched out on him. Perhaps he was—jealous—if such creatures can be jealous." 'Do the—the police know about this Flanagan?" "No." "There is such a person?" "There is." "Then," said the club manager firmly. "I believe the police should be informed of him. That is by far the most likely prospect of all." "There's only one Ihing wrong with that," Johnny said doggedly. "I'm not engaged to find the murderer of .Jess Carmichael the Third. My job's to find Lester Smithson—or what hapj/cned to him, if he Is dead." "I'm afraid I've told y*u M much as I know."
