The other held out his hand. "Your necktie and belt." "I'll lose my pants," "Prisoners can't have neckties or belts," the policeman said firmly. "It's against the rules. . They miRht hang themselves." "I ain't coing to hang myself." "Your belt!" Sam groaned. He removed his telt and discovered that his trousers were not too loose around the waist. An occasional hitch would keep them up. He surrendered the belt and his necktie. Then one of the policemen began 'fooling his pockets. lie exclaimed in chagrin, '"What's this?" He brought out the revolver that Sam had taken from Sid. "Holy smoke, we didn't search 'him when we made the arrest." "You bpys arc slipping," the sergeant said. He picked up his pen. "Carrying n concealed weapon —to wit, a revolver. Brother, that's a violation of the 'Sullivan Act." "I took it away from the guy who kidnaped me," said Sam. "Kidnaped!" The sergeant snorted. "You're getting fancier all the time. Mmmm, .forgery, larceny, attempting to bribe an officer and the Sullivnn Act. Yes, • sir, you haven't got a thing to worry about. Not for the next 15 or 20 years." ."Twenty years!" howled Sam. "You're kidding. Please, Cnplnln, don't make Jokes like that." "Come on," snld the policeman firmly. He gripped Sam's elbow hard, but Sam jerked his nrm away and went so far ns to slap down the policeman's hand. The policeman cried out, "Resisting arrest, assaulting »n officer." The desk sergeant began to write. 'No-no, don't arid any more." cried Sam. "I'll eo nuiclly. Come on. boys." Sum was lead into the bullpen, a larger room equipped merely with two steel cots. Two prisoners were already in ;he bullpen. One ot the policemen unlocked the door. Snm entered. The policeman locked the cioor and both went to the front of the station house. SAM regarded his fellow prisoners glumly. One was a youth of II) or 20, the other a grizzled old-timer. Sam shook his head. "It's all a bif mistake. I hadn't ought to be here at all." 'A mistake, eh? The cops're always makinR mistakes. What do you think they're charging me with?" ' "I dunno," "Burglary, that's what." The youth made a wet raucous sound with his mouth- "VaRran- cy that's what you're in for." 'I resent that, bub," retorted the oldster. "I served time in Jolict, Sing Sing and Akatraz. I got a record. And whndda you got lo brag about? Plnchln 1 pennies off a newsstand." "Oh, yeah? Well, it Just happens that I'm In for grand larceny, heisling a limousine, breaking snd entering and resisting n officer." "Yah!" The old tramp Indicated the youth with his thumb. "They talk big, these young punks, don't they? Tell him, pal, tell Mm what you're in for." "Forgery. Grand larceny. .The Sullivnn Act, nllcmptlng to bribe on officer, assaulting an officer and resisting arrest." "You klddin 1 ?" "I wish I wasn't. The c«pL says I'll be In J»ll for 15 or 2t years. 1 can't stand bcln' locked up." -No<Wn' BHKtl hoklin' you here." said the old tramp. "If I an old saw or even a little crowbar I'd be out of here in no e. Lookit them old iron bars. ilalf rusted away, set in plaster or pomcthin' instead of concrete." He pointed to the barred window at the roar of the cell. Sam •stepped up to it and looked Ihrou^h at nn alley. Tie examined the bars. Atrc hnd crumbled :he concrete foundation, age and he clement? hart weathered the ron bars. Sam grinned two of .he bars, tested them. They wobbled in their concrete sockets. He turned away from the window, his eyes narrowing. "If I a lever or something, I could :ear them bars loose." The boy wrinkled his nose in disgust. "That's the one thing I can't stand in these crummy jails. The bull the other prisoners throw." Sam's eyes fell to the cot on ..hich the youth was sitting. It was made of heavy tubular steel and contained a rusted spring. He dropped to his knees, tried one of the legs. 'Get up!" he ordered. I don't feel like it," snarled the youngster. Siim reached out, pushed the boy Rcntly. He turned a complete somersault and came up on the far side of the cot. On his hands and knees he stared at Sam, goggle-eyed. • * • THE lillle bolts that held, the leg of the cot lo the frame were badly rusted. Sam gripped the tubular leg, gave it a sudden wrench and It came away from the frame. Holy smoke!" gasped the old tramp. Grimly, Sam strode lo the window. He put the tubular leg o( the cot between two bars and put his strength to pushing the Innor end. The iron bar tore loose from III lower mooring, leaving a widft opening. Wide enough for a man to get through. Sam turned to his cclhnatei who were staring at him in awo. "You boys want out?" The old-timer back awnjr. "Not me." (T. IW Continue*)
