He looked longest at a stylized madonna carved from myrtle wood, then turned, smiling, to Stephanie: "Do I know the model for this piece? It looks like you." She didn't answer and he saw that her eyes were fixed on a larse figure with a soiled cloth draped over it. Eyes wide, she ILH .ed her white face toward him and pointed a shaking finger: "That. Over (here. H a g a r doesn't have a piece that large." He followed her glance then whirled as she gave a small sharp scream: ' "Look!" she whispered. "Look down below, on the floor!" The edges of the drape were stained dark red, and the lloor beneath was wet dark red. You couldn't mistake that color, he thought woodenly. It wasn't paint. Stephanie had covered her face with her hands and was sobbing jerkily, "Oh, it couldn't be Hagarl It couldn't be Hagar.! Oh. pJease!'.' He forced himself to plod over and litl up the cloth. He had placed his body between the quiet figure on the chair and the sobbing girl who stood rigidly in the center of the room. He looked down at the face which was tilled back and seemed to be staring up at him .with enormous sightless eyos. He lowered his eyes and drew the cloth back over the head. He took- Stephanie gently into his arms: "It's No!! O'Neill," he tolcl her quietly. "She's dead." She stood a few seconds, then slumped into Reddy's arms. • « • COME minutes later, Charlie had carried Stephanie back to the house, revived IlQr and started the coilee dripping. She was on the divan, her hands clenched, trying to think, to feel. He dragged a chair close and sat down. 'I suppose you're afraid it [night have been Hagar Blair who punctured Mrs. O'Neill. Hut, forget it, it just isn't logical, she'd have no reason." He-eyed her intently, "She wouldn't have a reason, would she?" Stephanie pressed his handkerchief to her face, mufTLing her words: "1 think she might have. And it's my fault!" He leaned forward. "Stephanie! It's irnportanl that you tell me what you know about this! There are two murders now, and that means there's great danger for everyone who's even remotely involved in this." She was looking vaguely at the ceiling. Rcddy made his voice more urgent: "Listen, Stephanie. When someone commits a murder, he or she is not necessarily a dangerous person. The crime could result from an intense momentary emotion— fear, anger, jealousy, any number of things. But when the murderer kills a second time, things take on a very ominous aspect. And we're almost sure., both of these deaths were caused by the same person, because of the weapon used." Stephanie's tears had stopped and she was giving him her attention. "You may think," he went on, "that what you know—I'm assuming you know something—is not relevant. But, believe me, anything may be relevant. And J promise that Lf you confide in me, I'll keep jour confidence insofar as I'm able in the interests of justice. You can trust me, Stephanie. And you must, you may be in danger. Just as your friend tlagur is in danger!" * • » i\ T the mention of Hagnr's name. L ~* Stephanie sal up and swung her feet to the door. Her blue eyes were wide and very dark: "Charlie! I'm scared! Where is Hagar? Where could she be?" lie opened lus mouth, but there was a sound of liquid meclini; flame out in the kitchen and he jumped up and raced toward it. When he returned, he carried a small tray with cups, sugar and colVce pot which he set down on the low table in front of the divan. He poured. "Can you drink yours black? Belter for you." She nodded, her eyes on his face wondcringly: "How can you be so calm when there's a—when Nellya is—?" He grinned faintly. "Cairn? Who's calm? Usually I can pour a cup of collce without splashing half of it into the saucer." He mapped it up with a paper napkin. "Here now. take this." She took the cup and smelled the steam appreciatively. He settled back in his chair: "I'll have lo call the chief pretty quick about this, but first 1 wish you'd tell me everything, anything, you know." He cave her an encouraging grin; "Better confide cmily over the coffee cups than down in our cold, gray bastille." Stephanie stared into her coffee, then took a trembling sip. She looked somewhere beyond him as she started to speak: "The first thing you ought to know, I guess, is that my name once was Surenov." Her eyes begged his understanding. "Bui I am an American. 1 was born in Chicago. My parents were Russian. And Nellya was my mother's sister." Roddy stopped drinking his coffee. He put the cup and saucer carefully on the tray. He set his back firmly against the rjushions of the chair and folded his hands across his stomach: "Go on, please," he said. (To Be ConliiuieU) Chinese Rods Changing Higher Education Ssystem SAN PHANCISCO (AP) — The Chinese Reds have begun to remold their higher educational system, but obviously are going slow. In a broadcast heard here by the Associated the Peking Radio said curricula lor colleges and art--i and sciences had been revised. "This marks the beginning of the reformation of the old educational system in universities and colleges in China," declared the broadcast. Dialectical materialism, historical materialism and what the Reds call "new democracy" are required S'jb- ject.s. Russian is required as a lor- eign language course "whenever pas- sible."
