In desperation, he grabbed ': her arm. The next thing that happened came so fast George could not tel! exactly what really took place. He suddenly felt himself plummeting over her head and crashing into a display of tomatoes. By the time George hsd extracted himself from the resulting catsup, Marilyn was at his side. "You poor darJing! Are you hurt?" "No." said George, "just messy." She turned, hailed a taxi and de. parted before George could stop i her George saw the owner of the market coming out of the door and he departed on foot. At tho hotel George sent his suil out to a local jiffy cleaner and was sitting around in his bathrobe when his secretary knocked on the door. Verna Denton came in, after George told her not to, and stared at George. "An accident," said George. "My suit will be back from the cleaners in two hours. I thought you were , going over to the gym to see Max?" "1 got jilted," Verna said, but i looking none the worse for it. "The flweet young thing you were tryinp -to save from his clutches showed up. so Max called off the class." "Well, I didn't do any better." George said despairingly. He told his secretary what had happened. "That makes sense, 1 ' said Verna "Marilyn went back to Max, so you're out of luck on this case. I'm out or luck. Old Man Silt- worth is out of luck. If you ,nsk me. a mass suicide would be very timely right now." George sal staring into space ami . he was surprised at his thoughts. ;if ho were a quitter, this would be line time to quit But George iwasn't going to be a quitter. Ry jgosh, he'd close the case even il worth. It might not be such a bad idea after all. Ot would it? * • * jyjATMLYN wasn't a bad kid, lust a litlle unpredictable and tempestuous. She knew judo but George could study defensive measures and after a few years he could prevent her from tossine him around. Maybe she wouldn't use really bone-breaking tactics on A husband. "We might as well pack up and leave." said Verna. "There's no reason to stick around here any longer.' "We're not going (o give up so easily," said George. "Who said we were giving up easily?" "I'm going to break up Marilj'n Sutworth and Max Arno and collect that fee and a bonus, even if I have to marry (he girl." "GeorKel" "I am." "Do you care for her that much?" George didn't answer for a moment. He really didn't know When he (hough! of Marilyn and her mischievous smile, he believed he did. When he thought of Sui- vorth for a father-in-law, he wasn't so sure. "Well. I'm not giving up yo t There must be something I can do." "There is." said Verna, "but you can't do it." "What do you mean?" "You've convinced yourself you're in love with Marilyn, George," said Vema. "Don't ask me how you figured it out. but you did. You're not in love -you just want lo win the bonus, Believe me, it isn't worth it," George knew that Verna was speaking from the heart, not from the mind. What was there that didn't make him as good a man as Max Arno, excepting that perhaps Max was in belter physical condition, weighed more and could licjl PAGE SEVENTEEN t I •&\ ttA * w " d rAh m% "What If your mother never washed her own dishes?

Let the boss have his way, even when he's wrong. What's Ihe plan?" For Verna to give up so easily, made George feel sad. He had fell so long that Vcma was in love with him, that he didn't like to see her surrender. But George had Ihe glimmerings of an idea. "That carnival's tonight, isn't it?" "Yes. Max said something about a charity show. He's performing in it or something." "Tliey'l! have animals, won't they?" Verna nodded. "They usually do. What are you cooking tip?" "Custard's Last Stand." he said. "Listen, do you think you can find someone who will rent us a truck tonight?" "If you can have cows delivered to your hotel, thi-n I guess I ought to be able to runt a truck. What gives?" "Elopement." said George. "Get thai truck. Bring the driver up here ahd we'll make nur plans." • • • yERNA returned shortly after George's clothes were delivered from the cleaners. He was just slraigh!cninsj his tie as Verna and the truck driver appeared. The driver. Tom Faber, was a young fellow, lean, nice looking and sandy haired. His father had a produce farm at the edge of town. George instructed him to have his truck bark of the animal cages soon afler dark. He issued other instructions to Venn., cave her some money, kissed her lightly on the check, and sent her and the truck driver away. "You're a heck of a detective, George Kendall," she said, as she left. George sj>enl the rest of tlic o(t- ernonn checking weather ri'iiorls and studying a manual on judo. At 6 o'clock he was ready to go forth. But a call from the desk clerk informed him ftat Albert p. Sut- worth was in the lobby to sec him. Old Man Sutworth, Marilyn's father, no less.
