XI T\AVE SLADEN and Ames War* burton had been rivals for Sallj Cravnth. And now Ames YJarburton was suddenly and thoroughly eliminated. I didn't develop that idea verbally. Sally had shown a reluctance the moment I mentioned Dave. I didn't want her clamming up on me, "Dave," she began, "seems to have been born with a terrific inferiority complex. I doubt if he'll •ver get over it. He'll have a chip on his shoulder all his life. His sfory is simple, but I hate telling you. I'll sound rather—snobbish." "You couldn't," I assured her. "Well, if you've got to have it, .Pave comes from some whistle ^>p in the Middle West. He was "one of a big family and there wasn't any money. But fie is very bright and ambitious. I'm practically quoting him—he's told me a lot about himself, but not all. You see, Dave is very bitter.'* Td noticed that. "Financially speaking/* she went on, "he didn't rate a college education al all. He was just plain too poor. But he wasn't willing to settle for some little job. He gol himself a preliminary education by hook or crook, and then wenl to college. Some place called Gris- kine. I'd never heard of it untt he mentioned it But, apparently they have some phony standards out there, even as our respectec Ivy League. And brcause Dave did all sorts of menial jobs, he was made lo feel that he didn't belong Naturally, that's aU rot and he ought to forget it. But he can't. 1 eem* to have cut into him very leeply." 'Was he an athlete?" I asked. *Ncx Dave wasn't 'good old Sladen,' who once scored on Notre Dame or anything. He couldn't fo into the insurance or brokerage MisinesB and browbeat the alumni nto buying stuff on the strenRth of some heroic record. Dave was ust a little guy, out for an educa- ,ion. And he got it. But—" a very regular pearly alignment cut into the red of an undcrlip—**I sometimes think that Dave would have >een better o if he'd played ball n the sticks. He might have gone places . . . there." , i cou id visualize all that easily. Dissatisfied, restless, a cut, mentally, above the norm ol the place. Consequently plagued, always, by a sense of the inadequacy around him and a desire for some better existence. And brought up, no doubt, on legends Rockefeller, Carnegie, Schwab et al—impinging, practically barefoot, upon the American picture Well, why nol Dave Siaden? And if some light-haired kid— who, by reason of birth, inheritance and what-not had had advantages that Dave hadn't had— was making everything look like a ridiculous crumple. . . . "That's Dave." Sally's brigli head nodded. "He got his job with Uncle Morney because he's ver> clever and—and astute. I'm sure he Unows as much about the bus iness as Uncle Marney does. Bu I'm sure of this too." Her eyes belt mine a minute, then slanted down in a qvieer streak ol grayish-yel low. "Dave hales the ground w walk on." Cravath had invited me to us his den any time I wanted to. drifted in there after I'd brough Sally home. It was a comfortabt little place, snugger than my ow room, and a good spot in which t arrange in my mind the facti ow had about the people at Wind- ver. These, I thought, were pretty kelchy, despite Sally's efforts. •oiled down, they cnme to this: Dolly Dumont was 8 dipsoman- ac; Jack Dumont a reputable bus- a man, sometime college alh- et« and presently Iong-sufTering usband. Eve Wheeler had a hatful of noriey, a chequered marital career nd an awful lot of steely strength inder a deceptively languid and oft exterior. Dave Siaden had been forced to tioe the hard row. And slights and mibs, I gathered, had lefl him with a certain worminess of soul. • • * RESENTLY i saw, too, that straight thinking required an- ither pair of suspects to be put on my list. It seemed the height of absurdity even to entertain the >nre notion that Sally Cravath might be a killer. But Sally was on« of us. She'd had as good an ipportunity as anyone else. And as for motive . . . well, who but Siaden, apparently, had one? So, feeling like a complete heel, I umped the girl I was going goofy over in with the rest of the prospective homicides. Mars ton Cravath, though, was a different proposition. I liked him. and didn't like thinking of him as a killer. But suppose, for example, that behind the respectable and venerable facade of Cravath & Company something was rotten, and that Am.cs Warburlon had been on to it. Perhaps even, despite his clean honest appearance, Ames had gone in for tt bit of blackmail. Or what if Ames, although ostensibly he had been at Windover on neither occasion, was actually behind the crashing flower pot and the hurtling car? And if Cravath had somehow discovered it, coincident with my coming, and made quick opportunity to beat Ames to the next punch? None of all this appeared very probable. Rut the possibilities had, I thought, to be taken into consideration. It was all, however, a hopeless, crazy-quilt of conjecture.
