Orth her t the "WO one, Sally Cravath said, ex- eept Eve herself possibly, knew why h«r first husband had shot himself. Eve's second marriage had been with a prince from Georgia—the Russian Georgia. "That marriage flopped after Just a few months. Then Eve was free for a long time. But she finally settled for the Wheeler man. He WM a lot older but a right guy, 1 Cues*. He and Eve seem to have 'H*d fun. And when Wheeler died. h« l«ft her pots of money." No monetary motive, at least for Wheelfcr. But apparently she • her away around with men And vhe'd been connected with violent death before. "Leaving Eve?" I said. Sally let long lashes droop over eyes like little gray clouds. "This doesn't do much for my ego. James Just something to pump, eh?" "This is a business trip," 1 said "Charming frankness. But . oh, well, let's take Uncle Jack. And he shouldn't lake long. I'm terribly fond of Uncle Jack. Jim. But, tc be absolutely honest, Uncle Jack i a perennial sophomore." She com pressed her lips, then added, "an< so is Uncle Marney." "You mean?" "Oh," Sally laughed, "they go their sheepskins, all right. But— not that I'm so darn clever or ma lure or anything—but. to my wa of thinking, neither of them eve graduated from Yale In their Blind*, that It" "They w«* together up there?* 1 "Together, like this." She crossed wo slim fingers. "And long be- or« Yale. At socne very select Ittle boys school in N«w York, rst. Then Exeter and finally New laven. The two of them seem to ave murdered all-comers, in ath- etics. I don't know what they use for a motto at New Haven. But f it isn't TJumont for Cravath' or Cravath for Dumont,' I've been misinformed att my Hf*/ Sounds like they subbed for on* another," I said, "Something like that. Uncle arney was a half-back. All- American too. And, apparently every time Uncle Marney got tirec Jncle Jack took over. And he was terrific, too, if I may quote Uncle Mamey." "Very smooth sailing, eh?" "They didn't have much of iroblem after college, either. They ust naturally went into Uncl- Vlarney's brokerage business. ! wasn't exactly his then, of course Elis father was still alive. Uncle STarney inherited and Uncle Jacl rode along with him. That's al there was to it," "You say then," I remarked reflectively, "tnat Mr. Cravalh anc Mr. Dumont have had very eas; and successful lives? Nothin. much to worry about?" IE shifted In her seat. "I'd sa that about Uncle Marney, def initely. And about Uncle Jack too up to a point. But—well, Jim, yo must have seen for yourself." "I get you," I said. "How did h ever come to Jo it? Not, mind you that Dolly couldn't have been at tractive once." "She was," said Sally. "Ver pretty, and bright and amusing lo< She'd been on the stage. 1 guw you'd have to Kay that poof Dolly just an ex-hoofer." "I know a lot of hoofem. An most of Ihcm are swell people." Sh« turned Mm asa't trying to be stuffy. But a— i ... oh, heck, an alcoholic can >me from anywhere.*' "I'm only interested in what lade her start drinking." "All I know is that Uncle Jack id everything in the world for er. But it wasn't any use. They ad three strikes on them before ley ever got married. He didn't nderstand the life she'd been used 3 and she was like a nsh out of rater in his. But she was stuck with his lite and she couldn't ope. So she started beating the bottle. That's my idea of what 'T'HAT situation didn't make en- ti^ sens* to me. "Maybe Doly Dumont didn't help haul the Daisy Chain at Vassar. But she's ibviously no fool. And certainly Dumont is a sensible man. Why luir/t they just mutually call it off?" "I don't know. It's rather tragic oo. Dolly's a very sweet woman, when she wants to be. She's got a leart as big as the house. I don't :hink she really means to give Uncle Jack a rough time." I should think," I said, "that ne'd do jomething about it. Not just take it," "Well, ihort of divorce, he has done things. Dolly's been in cure places any number of times. But it doesn't slick. Well, can I do any other quick thumbnails, Jim?" "Just one," I said. "Dave Sladen." "Oh, Dave." Involuntarily, I I thought, her eyes traveled away from mine. "Would you rather not discuss him?" I asked. "Why shouldn't I?" She looked at me quickly again. I shrugged. "I wouldn't know. Unless it's because the guy'j evidently nuu about you," A pot shot, but it came off. She colored, most fetchingly. "You're nuis yourself. But even If that were true, it has nothing to do with al) thii." No? D»T« Sladen and, I m_ pected, Ames Warburton as well, far overboard for Sally, and here was an old motive for murder.
