Main Phone mz XXI QEORGE KENDAF.L looked into ^-* lh« red face of Albert P. Sut- worlh. The client had come up to George's room after George had received (he call from the desk cterk. ff ever a man's expression showed anger, Mr. Sulworlh's did. "You have double-crossed me. foung man." "Double-crossed you? Why, Mr. Sntworlhl How can you say'such a thing." "Don't try to stall around. I knew whal you're up to." "You do?" -Yes, I do." •Mr. Sutworlh," George's voice was calmer now. "I was just go- Ing to send you a telegram, resigning from the case. Your daughter just threw me inlo a vegetable and fruit stand today." "She did? I received a phono call from her early this morning. She said she was through with Chief Big Bear and was going to marry a man by the name of George Kendall. That's you isn't it?" "Yes, but—" "So you're going to resign. You don't care for the fee and bonu< —you're going to marry my daughter and inherit everything I've got." "The engagement's off- for the present, Mr. Sutworth. There was in—er—a quarrel after she 'ihoned you. She's gone back to Arno. but I'm no quitter I'm going after her again tonight." "Humph. We'll sec about that." "Mr. Sutworth. would you prefer me or Mr. Arno as a son-in- law?" "I don't want her to marry a hard-boiled private detective I know all about 'em. 1 read de- tcctivc stories. They carry guns, make love lo every woman they meet—" "Then you prefer Mr. Arno?" "1 didn't say that. I don't want her married to a bis muscle-bound wrestitr with cauiiflowtr twtsted nose. Is he bald or does he wear long hair—or maybe it's cut Indian fashion—" "Mr. Arno is hefty, but not bad looking, Mr. Sutworth. Anci 1 don't carry a gun. 1 don't make love in- descrirmnalely, and I'm not hard- boiled." "You and Arno holh are fortune hunters." "I'm not. I won't have any of your money—I'll make my living as a farmer." "A what?" "Your daughter and 1 want to live on a farm. Now, good-clay, sir. I'm off lo patch up our quarrel " George darted out of the door. Mr. Sutworth's alarmed cry came after him, but George was down the stairway and out of the building free of pursuit. George had much to do. Jl'lic question Is, George thought will Marilyn react the way he expected her to? But Marilyn would. If she were the dream girl he thought she war. Firmly convinced that Marilyn was the girl of his dreams, George dined alone in a nearby restaurant and then made his way to the carnival grounds. • • • JT was getting dark and the early crowd had arrived. The ferris wheel churned, the merry-go- round whirled to the wheeze of a mechanical organ, and the Seneca Springs Annual Carnival was in full swing. Midway lights flashed their sparkling brilliance on a thousand and one. the entire population of the city almost, wide-eyed people who milled through the sawdust and crowded the rows of concession stands on each side of the midway. The aroma of peanuts and hamburgers and hot dogs struck ~eorge's face with force and the din of barkers pounded into his ears above the murmur of the crowd. Here were some d.incers lo the muuc of a Uir»»- piece band, and there were acrobats in tights, frenks who ate fire and swallowed swords, fortune tellers, jmd animal acts. Yes, animal acts, for they would play an important part in Detective George Kendall's pursuit of happiness. George found Max Arno's concession stand. It was simply a soft-drink stand, but the soda water was sold under the label of Indian medicine, guaranteed to cure the blues and made locally by the Seneca Springs Bottling Works. Max was dressed in an Indian suit, complete to a war bonnet, and he was not doing a bad job in selling his wares. As George moved a little closer to the stand, he caught a glimpse of Marilyn Sutworth. She was clad in jeans, a brightly colored shirt with the shirt-tail out, and a cowboy tint, and was helping Max serve his soda pop • • • QEORGF, slipped back inlo the " crowd before Marilyn saw him and then threaded his way toward the animal cages. These were back of the sideshow tents and behind the cages were bales of hay and straw, feed and bedding for the animals. George found activity around these bales and-pilcs of loose hay. Here George's secretary was hard at work, scooping np armloads of the hay ami carrying the stuff to a truck parked nearby. Helping her was the law, y haired young man. Tom Fabcr. who would drive the truck. The vehicle was half filled with straw and hay. Then V'erna Demon saw her boss. She stalked toward him. "This is the stupidest brain child anyone ever had." she said wiping perspiration from her brow. "II you don't get arrested for kidnap- ing, you'll probably get yourself married." 'At least 1 won't be a quitter," George said hotly. 'Sometimes it'j better to qu ; ' " Television- Tonite, Tomorrow WMCT. Memphis.
