Dr. Kloppel gave him a disapproving look and went to answer it, mumbling to himself. When he rc- , turned he had Bessy and Bculali. "I thought 1 told you to phone," Mark said coldly. "Wait," Bcuinli advised. She advanced to the table, holding a paper garment bag at arm's length. . Mark said, "Dr. Kloppel, these are my friends. And I suppose this bag holds the suit?" He drew it out, carefully. Dr. Kloppel carried the mugs over to the bookcase. -He refilled them with his back to the room and added two glasses of sherry to the tray. "Oh, thank you," Bessy said be- lore he'turned around. "We didn't phone," Beulah said, '.'because the place was near Hope Jlouse where I said it would be all along. So we simply came. Tom the Cleaner and Dyer. A European, peasant of some sort, nnd a grandson with the same accent and so on. We had no trouble at all. I get along with peasants." "What's this?" Mark fingered the slip of paper pinned to the laj>el. It was an oblong of pale pink with a serrated edge, and had obViously been torn from a ytad. Hi frowned at.the penciled scrawl.'

Dr. Kloppel asked pleasantly. , "Hopi House!" "TeK^LOne. pad. One on every floor, hanging beside the phone." He saw Mark's face and added hastily, and in time, "Ladies present!" » * » M ARK smoothed the paper, held it to the light, read the pcn- .ciled scrawl a-half dozen limes. Then he left, halless and cordless and without explanation. They heard the front door slam. Bessy said, "Have we done something wrong or right?" "Jliglil." Beulah's voice was pitying. "If we were wrong, he'd be the lirst to tell ns. Loud." He was back in less than five minutes. "It was in the coat pocket," lie said. "Crumpled up :is if it had been put there in a hurry. The cleaner calls everything in a pocket personal property, so he saved it. Pinned it to the conl himself. Didn't think it was worth mentioning, because he was sure Miller would know what it was." There was a lift in his voice. "Can liny of you bright people identify it?" "Wiggle, wiggle," Bessy began. He interrupted with bitter triumph. "It's a telephone number. Tom the Cicnncr nnd Dyer kncw wiiat it was right away. He looked me straight in tlif eye and said it was a telephone number in a bceg city like New York or Worcester, Mass. Because it had five leedlc figures. H I had a shield I'd turn it in and shoot myself with my service gun. . . . Which reminds me. I wns going to talic all this stuff over lo Foy. Now I think I'll call him' to come over here." When Foy nrrived he studied the slip of paper. "That could be something beginning with a W. That could be a W, nn M, or an N. I can have the number called on every local exchange, but it may take awhile." , "Worth it if it lakes the rest of the day. Meanwhile I'll run over to Hope House and sec it it clicks there. It may be one of their regulars. You know, drugstore, ice cream, cigarcls. I'll be back before you're ready for me."

'What is it?" she whispered. "Why did you come back?" ' "Miss Phmimer, did Ruth Miller ever use the phone when you were on duty?" She looked as if he had struck lier. "How did you know?" "I don't know. I'm asking you. If I could be sure, it might help inc." "Yes, she did. I forgot to tell you." She corrected herself pain- lully. "No, I can't truly say I forgot, it was more like being afraid to say anything. You sec I lost the slip I wrote the number on." She lold him how the call hart come through, how she had been surprised to hear JUith Miller's voice, because it was so late. "The Sunday night, it was," she said.
