I arrived for this repast unconscionably late to find Dolly Dumont and Manila in the dining room. Dolly looked nearly as bad as I felt, but «h< made a pass at the social •meiutie*. "You're Sally's boy friend from Bermuda," she said, striving for distinctness. Her green eyes fixed me a trifle uncertainly. "Not bad; not good either. I've seen belter." "Oh," I said. "They make 'em better.* ^Manila brought me pale-yellow (*As scrambled to a lovely consist- V«y, encompassed by little sou- siiges and crowned with a sprig of parsley. He followed up with coffee and toast. I had already defined to pour my own orange •juice. Dolly Dumont gazed upon this gastronomic treat and turned away as if revolted. "What the young can put in their stomachs at the crack of dawn. What'd you say your name was, boy?" "Jim Orth, Mrs. Dumont," I reminded her. And it occurred to me that either Mrs. Dumont's indiscretions of the night before were still wielding authority or else that she'd built herself up with a jumbo-size eye-opener But ing matter which, I began wolf- esgs. "Okay, Jim. But don't boll vour ' i-i, C u n ' 1 sta " d T like this. in the last two words, I thought. I had to stop myself from shooting i surprised glance at her. "What about this morning?" I laid. "Is H different from any jther?" "I understand, from my hus- jand, that we're one less today." • • * nnHE words themselves might have been callous. But Dolly Dumont's tone wasn't exactly. There w.ij a trace of softness, even of pity, in it. "Yes," I said cautiously. •Didn't like to mention it before, because I didn't know if you knew about it. But there has been I bad accident." "Accident?" said Dolly. "Who am I lo argue? All I know is that that poor kid. Ames, had no business here under the—the circumstances. If he'd played ball in his own league, as they say, this mightn't have happened." I hadn't an earthly of what she was driving at. But I wanted her to talk. "I don't get it," I s.iid encouragingly. "What circumstances?" She ignored that completely. "Listan, Jim! You're a nice kid but after all, just a kid. So you'd bel- ter take some advice, even if it docs conic from a raddled old hag. Pack up and get out of here! This was a bad business for Ames Warburton. Could he for you too." She went out of the room, none too steadily. I swore into coffee dregs. A cleverer guy would have kept her there and learned something. I'd learned nothing in particular Except, possibly, that Dolly Dumont was neither as drunk nor as dumb as she advertised herself to be. I found Marston Cravalh on his putting green, a miniature replica of an actual golf course, some holes short, others long, and little red flags with white numbers marking the holes. Such was Cra „. , marking tne noies. Such was Cra- DUI unnecessary emphasis I vath's absorption that 1 wa« able to watch him play thre« hole« without hi« being aware of my presence. I «aid, Wien, -nope I'm not di»- turbing you, Mr. Cravath." H» glanced up quickly. "Oh, prth! \o, certainly not. I was just amusing myself. Did you finally get some sleep?" "Plenty," I lied. He stroked his chin. "Well, that's more than I can say, I hate to admit it, but this thing's got tne down. I can't get over young Ames." "In line with that," I said "I'd like to have a little talk. If we can manage it without being too conspicuous." "Should think we ro«ld. 1 dont know where the others are. Except that I've got Sladen busy in the house. Suppose we walk a bit?". 'J'HAT was as good as any. We started on an aimless ramble through the grounds, Crnvath carrying his puller and swiping at weeds with it occasionally, "Anything special on your mind?" he asked presently. "No-oo. Only it might be smart V) go to the police." His forehead creased. "What have we got to go on? Two attacks on me, but nothing except my word for it that the attacks were actually made. Or that they wer« attacks. And nothing but Ring's word that Ames didn't fall over the cliff, or eke throw himself over it. Pretty thin from the police viewpoint" "I'll grant that," I said. "But what else are we going to do? Just sit back and wait for the murderer lo take another move in his own good time?" He swung the putter at the nimy gossamer of a long-burnt-out dandelion almost savagely. "Okay. We gel Ihe police swarming in here. Then whal happens? Doesn't this killer of yours simply fade out of the picture until a— a better day?" He hadn't made any particular effort, so far as I could see Hut in some subtle way perhaps, he'd' practically got me seeing eye to eye with him. <T« Bt Continued) Television- Tonife, Tomorrow \VMCT, Memphis, Channel 4 THURSDAY NIGHT, MARCH 20 0100 Kukla.
