Main Phone 3-3221 TJREXY examined the body and came bock lo us without the '-. slightest expression on his face. "Mr. Lister, Mr. Jones, you must surely be aware that your ; story is almost impossible to bc- Heve. Your account of the discovery of Professor LeNormand's body is absolutely incompatible with the nature and extent of the burns." His voice was not quite so decisive. "I have never swn > human body so—" he paused for a word—"so nearly incinerated." . We iust stood .there, silent, ' with our eyes on his face. "Unless you are extraordinary young men, you have both taken » few drinks. How many?" . I told him, and he listened, without disapproval. "But we're not drunk, sir," I concluded. . Proxy tried nisain. "It is my duty to report this to the police, he said, "and the moment I do so there will be nn investigation. 'You must both understand that you will I)C questioned over nnd over again. The police will be ' as dissatisfied with your story as '.I am." Jerry laughed, a little sharply. '"President Murray, we have been "over all this together. We debated Inventing a more plausible 'story to tell you and the police. "We decided lo stick to the truth." . Krownins IhoiiRhtfiilly, Proxy began to Inspect UM room in de- tail, staring at its meager furniture and the howitzer barrel of the telescope with puzzled eyes. "I wish," he said finally, "that I could spare you two gentlemen something of what lies ahead of you in the next few hours. You can imagine the difficulties in which this places me." • • » HE went on. "The story you have told me is .so extraordinary that I believe you arc telling the truth. Whether this is a case of accident or murder I/ cannot decide. Ultimately the police will have to decide it. I must, therefore, telephone them at once and attend to certain other matters as well. I put you both on your honor as university men not to touch anything in this room until I return from my telephone downstairs," And without wailing for any reply he went down the spiral steps and left us alone in the room. '"'I pledge my honor as a gentleman,' " said Jerry In a low voice, " 'lhat during the course of this examination I have neilhcr given nor received assistance.' " 11 was Ihe honor pledge we all used lo write at the end of every exam paper. I laughed. "So fnr as he's concerned, we're still undergraduates." "Bark, listen." He lowered his voice. "This Is a murder, all right. It's too incredible to think it's an accident, or the result of heart failure, or anything like that. It's a cinch the autopsy will,prove I'm right." "Admitted." He added nothing more, so I went on. "And it's a murder lhat we didn't commit, though I bet r lol of people are going 10 Iblnk we <U'l." lie shook bit head. "J wondor. PbttitoUrf by NIA Service,* !•«. After all, we haven't any motive. None whatever. And neither of us has any Kraflft-Ebing tendencies. And just how did we commit it? No, I think people will shy clear of accusing us, even indirectly." "It's the police Uiat worry me." "Don't fool yourself." He was positive, "The police won't be able to find a thing to implicate us, because there isn't anything to find. We're in for a nasty siege of questioning." "How do you figure that?** "LeNormand had some enemies. And we both know who they are." I examined my mind and drew a blank. "I don't." He was impatient. "Don't be thick. How about all that correspondence I used to type? The row he had with Trimble and Pforzman and Slanward, and the rest of them? There's the rno- ' live." * * * I LOOKED at him in astonishment. "You think those stargazers and atom-busters would kill each oilier over the Einstein space-time theory? Next thing you know they'll have Einstein down nt headquarters, going over hinj with a rubber hose." He laufihcd. "Okay. -I wasn't going tr> toll them anything except what we saw, anyway. I£ they find out about that old row, though, I may have to tell them the theory. And there is one thing that supports it." I saw lhat he really was se- rlous. "What's that?" "The fire. It must have been a chemical—maybe thermite. No ordinary substance would burn into flesh nnd bone as deep and lost as'l'"il did."
