When Janet explains to David that he hadn't been home the night before, be insists that be was, but she shows him proof that the day ia Tuesday, Dot Monday, as be believes. He is flabbergasted, and Janet ia deeply worried. Janet calls a doctor who tells David to stay away from the office for a few days rest. The next morning, the neighborhood is aroused over the finding of a local man s body in a nearby pond and it is whiicpered about that David was the last person to have seen him alive. Both David and Janet are questioned by the police and the former worries so much over his loss of memory that he begins to believe that he might have killed the stew ard of a local club, a man he was known to have disliked. The doctor works on David in-an effort to bring back the lost hours of his life and so clear up the case. He also tries to convince the police that it is not in David a character to commit murder.
