"Lemme. have youi pencil, Buddy.".The waiter gave him a pencil and Sam scribbled the name, "Mr. Pink ley." "Your room number, sir," the waiter reminded. Sam wrote down Room 821, then went through the motions of iscarchinR his pockets for change. "'I don't seem to have any chnnnc. jl'll just add the tip to the check." j He scribbled: "Tip, $1." ! He hnndccl the check to the waiter. "How's that pal?" The waiter stared at the 'check. "One moment, please." He Iheader! swiftly for the door lead- lintf to the lobby. The waiter returned, accompanied by a hcvy-sct man of about -10. The heavy-set man was scowling at the check the waiter had given him and the waiter was chattering excitedly, although Sam could not hear the words. Sam went to meet them. "What's the matter?" he asked deliberately. "I just signed the tab for Ihc check, that's nil." "That is not nil," said the heavy-set man firmly, "I, sir, am Mr. Pinkley." Sam gulped. "What a coincidence, two of us by the same ruir.-.o slaying at the same hotel." "I am not slaying here," Mr. Pir,!;!ey .snapped. "I sir, am the ivinnnficr of the hotel!" •* * * TliK desk sergeant poised his pen over the police blotter. "Name?" "Sam Crntftf. C-r-a-g-g, any- bojy knows that. But look, cnp- tnin, this Is all a mistake." "It sure is. Previous conviction. 1 ;?" "WJuiddya mean, previous con-, victions?" asked Sam indignantly "Do I look like a crook?" "Yes, Now, you might as well tell the truth, .because we'll only check your fingerprints and it'll be so much the worse for you if you lie. How many previous convictions?" "None! I ain't even been in e clink before — well, hardly ever— and it wasn't for anything serious. Just little things, like now." The desk sergeant looked at the two arresting officers. "What's tho charge?" "Larceny. Forgery," said one of the policemen. "Oh, sure, just little things," said the desk sergeant sarcastically. "Can you put down just plain dumbness, Sarge?" grinned one of the policeme^. Who's d u m b?" challenged Sam. "You are, stupid," retorted the policeman. "Otherwise you wouldn't go into a hotel dining room and sign the manager's name to the check <mc then, to make it worse, put down Room 800 and something when the hotel's only got four floors." Sam winced. "Anybody can make a mistake. Johnny pulled Lhe same stunt and it worked. There wasn't nothing . . ." Sam stopped, realizing that he was .nlking, too much. He snid desperately, "Ain't it true that a prisoner's allowed to make a phone call?" "A Jnilhouse lawyer," said the :k\sk scrgcnnt. Ho ihrugged. "Okay. One call." Sam grabbed the phone, took off the receiver. "Give me New York . . ." The desk sergeant snatched the phone from his hnnd. That'* long distance. You'r* not getting any Ire* long distance culls on this phone." "Bui I don't know anybody la | this burg. The only person I know, 1 mean the only real friend I got in the whole world is in New York. He'll come running out to square this beef." "Maybe he's a Congressman,™ suggested one of the policemen. "Why don't ypu write him a letter? Everybody writes to hia Congressman." "Look, captain," Sam said to the desk sergeant, "be a sport Okay, it's a long distance call. 1 ain't got a red cent in my pocket, but Johnny'll pay you. He's got 500 fish in ttis pocket. He'll come buzzing round out here and pay you. He—he might even slip you a, couple of bucks All of you." "Bribery!" exclaimed the desk sergeant. He picked up his pen again. : No!" howled Kam. "I wasn't. Don't put that down. It's bad enough. I just meant Johnny'll pay up everything. Everything I owe. The dinner—the lunch at the hotel, the phone bill." The desk sergeant could not quite conceal a grin. "All right, son, I'll trust you for that phone call. Go ahead and make it." • * • SAM caught up the phone once more. Hurriedly he put through iis call, then waited. The hotel operator rang Room 821 and rang ind rang. Finally, she said, "I'm <;orry, there's no answer." "Gimme the bell captain—E<W ie Miller!" Sam cried desperately. "This is important . . .* "One moment, please." After a long wait, Edciie Miller's voice said cautiously, "Bell captain." "Eddie! This is Sam Cragg, ,ook, I haven't got time. I'm in a Jam, Havt you seen Johnny Fletcher since this morning?" 'Not since about 10 o'clock, H« came in then and—say, aren't you kidnaped?" No—no. 1 moan, 1 was, but 1 got away. I'm okay. Except— ['m In the clink!" "You're in Jail? Whore . . . T* "1 dunno, Walt . . ." Sam turned to the desk s«r» geanU "What town U this?"
