"Not often I get bashed on the head with a pottery jug." Hagar slapjied the couch indignantly. '•'Right ]n my own shop. Hardly got my britches in (he door when I was felled like an ox." "What time was this. Miss Blair?" Charles Heddy asked. "Oh, call me 'Hagar.' I've jitst come to realize that life can be very short! What time? About 7 o'clock, I think. I'd just got b"ack from Dana Point. I was out cold afterward tor a couple of hours." "She phoned me around 10," Stephanie put in. "Riijht atter everybody left here. I went right down in a cab and brought her home." , "This thing's turning into a .nightmare, Reddy," she told him between puffs. "Murder right in my own backyard. Literally. Who did it; d'you think?! 1 - . >• Rcddy slared down at his chromium lighter: "I may as well tell you the truth. Miss Blair: There are some who think you might •have." She snatched the iccbag from her head: "I? Think I might have? Are you crazy? I can prove I didn't, I can prove 1 wasn't anywhere around!" "Cnn you?" Reddy's face looked hopeful. "How?" at Dana Point yesterday a/(ernoon—at Doheny Park, to I>c exact. Drove down there to meet somebody." "Who?" * * • j:|AGAR impatiently kicked off the fur coverlet, swung around and planted her feet on the floor; "Well, like Stephanie's already told you, I went over to see Nell yesterday about the carneo. Nell got nasty and we took to yelling at each other. Just about when we'd got Eo hair pulling, this phone call came for me." "Who'd know you were at the O'Neills?" "Oh, lots of people might have. My car was out in front." "Go on, please.'* "Well, this voice on the phone, a man's voice, told me that if I'd meet him at the barbecue pits in Doheny Park, he'd tell me something important about the cameo and about Martin Falter's murder. 1 was to meet hitn at 4 o'clock. It takes about an hour and a half to drive up there, so 1 left Nell's right away. About 2:30 that was." "Tom O'Neill says you were with Nell in the morning when he left the house." "That's right. I was. But we didn't get anything settled, and 1 went out, mad as hops, and walked up and down the beach until 1 cooled oft". Then I had a cup of cortee at Mike's and went back." "Then you got that phone call and drove down to Doheny Park, but the fellow didn't show up?" "He did- not. 1 waited until 6 o'clock." "Did you see anybody at all down there?" "N'o. Places like that arc pretty well deserted this time of year, you know." Reddy rubbed hjs nose reflectively: "ft adds up 1 0 this, Miss Blair, Mrs. O'Neill was killed in your studio, possibly with one of your sculpting tools, and you can'l prove your whereabouts at the in^c of the rmirder. Yon cnn't oven irovc you received thai phone •nil." "Why, I can, too!" Hagnr's face reddened indignantly, "Nell was "iglH there when I—" her voice faltered and stopped. * « • JJEDDY looked glumly down at his shoes, then sighed and eot up from his chair: "Just a few more tit!ic!< questions. Miss Blair: Did Nell ask you to come over and discuss the cameo?" "Yes, she did. Phoned me about it." "Do you rcmemher where the O'Neill phone is situated?" "Of course I do, o;it in their front hall." "And do you rememher whether you took your purfie with you when you went out to answer the phone?" Hagar screwed up her face, concentrating: "Let's see ... No! No 1 didn't. That's it! While 1 was' out of the room, Nell stole my studio key from my bag! That's how she got into the sttidiol" "Maybe you're right." Reddy rtii;; into his coa-t pocket and brought out the silver box: "Here's a little trinket that may brighten things up a little. Trim O'Neill ordered thai il be turned over to Stephanie." Stephanie stared at him iti disbelief while she stretched out both hands for the box. He grinned at her. '.'We may borrow it later on for use as evidence, but, for now, it's yours." He turned to leave, Stephanie handed the box to Hagar and walked with him from the room. Alone, Hagar stared thoughtfully at the box. Almost gingerly, then, she pressed the lock and the Jid flipped open. She picked up the cameo and the unlocked pin snasgcd on the velvet cushion, pulling it up from the botiom of the box. As she tried to straighten the pad ( Hagar made mental note to glue il down firmly once and for alL The cushion was now wedged in a slanting position, she worked at it with a hairpin and pried it out. There were Ihosc numbers again, engraved clearly in the bottom of the box! (To Be Continued) Private Rooms Bedroom lor rent. Ph. 2818. 12:7 pk IJ7 ^lce comlortable ljt!ilroom. 1007 Main. Oenclemen.
