XXIV TTIS hands bound behind his back, Sam relaxed on the sofa in the rustic IO^KO. Sid s;it in a chair opposite, then, becoming bored, got up and wandered about the room. He went into the kitchen and Sam heard a refrigerator door open and close Then the gurgle of a bottle of beer being poured into a glass. Sam gritted his teeth and twisted mightily on the ropes that held his wrists tightly together. They relaxed n little. Riving him some piny. But it was a fairly new clothesline and very strong. Sid re-entered the room, carrying a glass of beer. "Mud in your eye, fat boy!" "Leonard ain't big enough to U(ko Johnny all by himself," Sam said. "Maybe somebody'!! help him." "Who?" "Fella who paid us for this Job doesn't want his name known." "I could tell him one thing right now," Sam said. "He's gon- na be awful disappointed, even if he docs get those coins." "That's his business," said Sid. He returned to the kitchen. Sam heard the icebox door open once more. He got to his feet, i\vcnt into a half crouch and drew n huge breath. Then, exerting every bit of his tremendous strength, he gave his wrists a slow, mifiluy twist. The rope cut into the skin, went deep into inc. flesh. Pain shot through his arms to his shoulders, but Sam persisted, A half inch, fin inch—and then the ropes burst! Sam's hands were Irec. But ho was gnsping from .the exertion and priin. He scooped, snatched up the ends of the knotted rope and holding them behind his back, snt down ngain on the sofa. Sfd came hi, currying a fresh of b«*r. Sam was breath- ing heavily and Sid looked at him suspiciously. "1 can't stick around much longer." Sam said. He half rose to his feet. "Down, fat boy.'" * * • SAM brought his hands tn fronl of him- Sid gasped in astonishment. The glass of beer slipped through his fingers, smashed On the hardwood floor. Hip right hand darted for his coat pocket. Sam lunged forward, grabbed thr hand just as it was going into the pocket. He twisted It. Sid let out a scream of anguish. "Fat boy, huh?" grunted Sam. He brought up his right hand, cljnched it, then deliberately almost lazily, cuffed Sid on the left side of his face. The force of the short blow tore Sid from Sam's grasp and hurl led him a half dozen feet away. Sid lay on the floor quivering. Sam walked over to him, stooped and took the revolver from Sid's pocket. "Johnny and me can get rich selling the guns we collected today." He grabbed the front of Sid's coat, perked him to his feet and half dragged, half propelled him to the couch. Sid's eyes rolled wildly. Snm slapped him gently, but his lingers left marks on Sid's face. "Who hired you for this caper?" he asked. Sid was conscious but seemed to have trouble speaking. His mouth opened, closed and opened again. Sam slapped him with his left hand just so Sid would not go around with his head lopsided. "II - II - Harry F-F-Flnnagan," gj'spcd Sid. Sam recalled having hciird the name that morning. Eddie Miller had given It He was the single who had called at the Forty- Fifth Street Hotel, the (riend of Alice Cummmgft. Sam put Uw rcvelvat u* tut pocket. He looked around the room, nodded, then went to the door. He looked back at Sid. "Goodby, now!" Outside, he started down the rutted road. The taxi that had brought him out had bounced and jolted along this road for several minutes. A half hour later he was still on the dirt road and beginning to limp. Another 10 minutes, however, brought him to the Parkway. Cars whizzed by in both directions. Sam got on the New York-bound side and used his thumb. A dozen cars whipped past, another dozen and Sam became desperate. * * ' * BRAKES squealetl and a li)37 car pulled up beside Sam. "I'm only goin' a little way," he said, "bul if you want a lift, you're welcome." "Thanks, mister, you saved my life," cried Sam. "How far's it to New York?" "I dunno rightly," was the reply. "I ain't been there in years. Bul Peekskill's just a hop and a jump from here." The little ca roared along, turning off the Parkway a few minutes later It rattled along.a street, paved with large cobblestones, then turned down a street lined with stores and small office and professional buildings. The man pulled up before the hotel. Sam got out. "Thanks a million mister. You saved my life." Sam found a leather chair not too far from the hotel desk. A bellboy walked through the lobby. One came in from the front, went into the dining room. The first bellboy took up a post near the desk. Five minutes went by, Sam got a whiff of roast beef from the dining room and practically drooled. Another five minutes. Then the bellboy turned from the desk. "Mr. Pinkley, calling Mr. Pink- Icy." Snm got to his tcel. The bellboy walked toward the front of the lobby and called out Mr. Pinkley's name. He returned to the desk, calling once more No Mr. Pinkley showed up. That wns enough for Snm.
