Something like ther- mite?" Jt was a new iden to Nickerson, "I don't know the effect of the stuff." "They use'it in welding," Jerry explained. "And they used something like it on incendiary bombing raids. Along with napalm. It's a mixture of powdered aluminum and iron oxide." Nickerson rubbed his ear thoughtfully. "A chemical analysis of the calpincd matter and the edges of the clothing ought to isettle the point." "Isn't it possible," I ventured, "that the thing is an accident? He could have put his pipe, 'lighted, Into his pocket." Nickerson shook his head. "Even if he had accidentally set fire to his clothes, and even if they had been soaked in gasoline, I don't believe he could have boon burned like that." Hnnlon fidgeted a little in his chair. "Well, Doc, you better wail till Parsons gets here. lie's head of county detectives." Parsons was a slow, calm, neu- trnl sort of mnn, but he knew his Job. Ho turned Merrill, the coun-! ty doctor, loose on the corpse. He had photographs taken of every inch of the observatory building. He had every surface tested forj fingerprints, and took ours, Han- Ion's, Nickerson's, and Pudge's. He sent a man over to Proxy's house to ask him if he'd mind coming back at once. After listening once to Jerry's story and mine, separately, he noted down nur stadium ticket numbers, and listed the people we'd noticed at the game who might be able to corroborate our presence. He studied the floor, the walls, and every piece of furniture in the room. He took a note of the company that manufactured the flre extinguisher Jerry had used, * * * IT all look a lot of lime. Somewhere around midnight he lurried to us. "I don't want to make this any harder for you Iwo than I have to," he said. "I don't wanl to lock you up. You're the only witnesses I've got, and your story is fishy. But I can't find anything to incriminate either of you so far. By morning we'll have the results of the autopsy, and perhaps some new information. I'll have to go over the whole Lhing with you again. So you'll have to slay in town tonight." Jerry and I sighed. We had seen this coming. Jerry told him, 'We can stay at the Lodge—our fraternity house, the Zcta Kappas." • • • PABSONS sent for us as we Tnishcd with the morning papers, lie had shifted his base of operations, for the car drew up in front of the town hnll and we were shown into the police station In the wing at the right. Prcxy was there, and so was Doc Nickerson. Parsons was sitting at a long table with a lot of papers spread out in front of him, Prexy cleared his throat, "lam, quite sure, gentlemen, that you will not require the presence of a lawyer at this hearing. Nevertheless, if you wish to have legal advice, you are entitled to demand it." "That's all right," Jerry said as we look a couple of chairs. "Go ahead, Mr. Parsons." "When you walked toward the door of the observatory you had it in full view?* "Yes, though of course it was dark and there was only the one light, and we weren't watching it consciously." "But you are both still positive that no one came out of that door during the time you were walking toward it?" 'Well," I said, "not through the door. .Somebody might have got out through the slot in the dome." "They didn't," said Parsons grimly. "There's a wide bed of. plants on that side. Anybody leaving that way would be sure to leave traces." Suddenly Jerry stiffened beside me and leaned forward. "There is one way that someone could have got out of the building without our knowing it." Parsons smiled. "Well, Mr. Lister?" "Whoever did it might have sneaked down the stairs when he :ieard us at the door, and gone nlo one of the classrooms." Parsons looked triumphant "What do you say, Mr. Jones?" "Well," I struggled to find words for an intangible impression, '.'when wo entered the hnll [ glanced at the two doors of ,hosc classrooms. There may lave been somebody in one of .hem, but it didn't feel that way. , It fell like an empty house."
