Her back wns propped against a lumpy pillow, and she was trying unsuccessfully to capture serenity by concentrating on a magazine story; about a domestic triangle in Connecticut, Repeatedly, she found that she had read several paragraphs without absorbing an iota of their contents. She threw the magazine on the floor and slid ofl the bunk. She went to the door and stood looking out between the bars, her chocolate-colored eyes scanning the corridor: "Hey! Where is everybody in this catacomb? Hey, Chel! I want to make a phone call! D'you hear me out there?" She waited hopefully for an answer but the hall remained empty and silent. Muttering, she walked to the wash-bowl in the corner and turned on the faucet. Sluicing the cold water over her lace she burbled: "Caged itp (ike i perdition monkey.

She stopped mumbling as footsteps echoed in the corridor. "Stephanie! And Recidy! Am I glad to see you! Come right in and sit down." Chct, the guard, was grinning as he unlocked the door. Stephanie hurried into the cell and threw her arms around HaKar: "Good news. Hngar!" She stood back and surveyed the older woman affectionately: "I think maybe you'll be out of here soon!

Hagar shook hands with Rcddy and pulled him down to sit beside her on the bunk: "Well," she demanded, "what's up? Have they found the murderer?" T.TAGAR'S eyes didn't leave girl's face as she lislcne' the — led to the account of Yakov's visit. Stephanie first related the Russian's questions about the cameo, then told how she had discovered the small bit of paper in the lockeu Hagar excitedly squashed her nose under her fist: " 'The Cherry Orchard'? That's a play by Che- kov, isn't it? Whole thing's probably a code of some kind. Did you bring the paper?" Stephanie shook her head' "1 hid it-" "Beats me," Hagar' muttered. "Could be we're right up to our necks in some kind of international intrigue! But how could that have anything to do with the murders? Nell and Falter were both local people wben all this began." Rcddy spoke: "I think Stephanie and I had better whip back to your house, Hagar, to be on hand when Yakov arrives willi ihoft letu-rs.

Seems the litllc fellow has sat around and hatched himself a theory. He's now sharing it with the Chief." u "Y'know," Hagar snid slowly, I never thought of it before, but Arnold Pfielter might he in a position to know an awful lot aboul this. Don't forget, probably he put the cnmeo in my collection cabinet and left the silver box in my car after Faltcr's murder." Heddy nodded. "Well, Pctcr« can cope with him.

Hagar eyed the door slyly and spoke to Stephanie hoarsely from the corner of her mouth: "Keep me covered, Dutch. I'll make a break for it!" Stephanie threw her a startlcc glance, but Hagar hadn't moved and was now staring with narrowed eyes at the opposite wall: "Y'know," Hagar brooded, 'anxious as 1 am to stop being a burden to the county taxpayers, 1 wonder if maybe it's a mislake to show Yakov that; paper without investigaling the angles. Maybe the FBI ought to be notified." 'We were thinking about the FBI," Hagar began, when Roddy returned. "Coincidence department." Reddy declared. "So was I.
