"Well," he spread bolh hands in an expression o( defeat, "there goes our missing link. Ynkov's in the hospital with a cracked head. May or may not live. They found him in the alley back jf Bob's Place—that's the bar. you know. One of Bob's customers, full to the gills, went out back to get a little fresh air or something and found Yakov, lying on his face. blood on the back of his head, and a smashed ha If-gallon demijohn nearby. No fingerprints on it, of course." "Nice!" Trotter commented quicUy. "Yeah, you bet. Nice!" noddy's mouth was a taut, pale line. He struck his right fist hard into the palm of his left hand. "The Chief's righU We're a bunch of yokels in Dolorosa! A bunch of Keystone Cops playing games while the citizenry is getting knocked off right and left!" Trotter-gave his attention to at- ting his pipe into its battered leather pouch: "No use wasting time maligning ourselves," he declared. "Lei's get downtown and learn the particulars. Somebody ought, to be near Yakov constantly in case he becomes conscious and is able to Islk." "May I come, too?" Stephanie's face was worried and fearful. "I don't want to slay here alone!" Reddy nodded concernedly. "No, you can't stay here, that's a cinch. Tel! you what—why don't you pack up your toothbrush and oa- jamas and we'll get yon a room at the Casa Kosa; you'll be safe there, lE's right next door to where I live and I'll check with you Irom time to lime," • * * £JHIEF PETERS and Charlie Reddy sat opposite each other in two wicker chairs surrounded by the scientifically contrived cheerfulness of the bospiUil's second floor wailing room. Reddy straightened his shoulders and look the ball: "Well, you say PficfTcr told you ho suspects Tom O'Neill because of that weaving tool Tom borrowed from him to incise his potlery." "Yeah. Pfieffcr claims the thing was the right stze and shape to've inflicted the wounds In both Falter and Mrs. O'Neill," "But he didn't have another one like it to show you?" The Chief shook his head, repeating once more a description of the instrument as PficfTer had given it to him: "l,ong, thin, steel thing with a little handle. PfiefTer says he used k for picking out threads in his weaving. Described it as an oversize bodkin with a sharp point. Ever see a bodkin?" Reddy looked puzzled, "If 1 had, I wouldn't know it from a began." The Chief pursed his lips and expounded: "It's a large-eyed blunt needle for drawing tape or ribbon through a loop or hem. I looked it up in Webster's. Pfieflor told me this gismo of his was like that except for the large-eyed, blimi pnrL This thing was sharp, and about four inches long on the business end." "What would Tom want with it?" "I told you. He wanted It for incising sgrafTitto work on his clay poUs." "SgrafTitto. Of course. Naturally." Reddy waved an arm wildly. "Clear as mud!" "Oh. you've seen sgraffilto. It's Unit rough-textured • pottery that looks like it'd been scratched with pin or something on [he outside. When the clny is what they call 'green'—that is, before it's been baked or glazed—the potters sometimes scratch that roughness OHIO it for a special elTccU They use kinds of queer gadgets to unusual surfaces. You know those wire flower-holders? Folia I know who has a pottery up in the canyon spefiali/es in little lambs, lie makes 'em woolly-looking by punching the green clay with one nf those sharp-pronged flower holders. Tricks in all trades, you kiunv." Reddy scratched the stubble that was beginning la appear on his checks. "And L'ficfTer thinks this sgrnfTilto thing could've IHMMI the murder weapon? Did he say why tie thought Tom might hove done it?" "He babbled a lot of stuff about Torn being jealous of Fa her and Nell—he seemed scared to death, wanted me to give him polk-e protection. I pointed out to him that it couldn't have been Tom, since he has a foolproof alibi for the time of both murders. He was in Bob Knox's back room." J>EDDY brought out his notebook: "Lei's f*o over all the alibis otice more. Suppose we sinrl wilh Hagar's." Pelcrs thumbled through his notes. "Not much use check ing that, she's the one who just plain hasn't got an nlibi. That's why she's in jail, my boy." "I'm prclty sure you can rule her out, though. Chief." "Why should I? There's a lot lhat points right lo her. Who was righl smack-dab in Walter's house just after the murder—maybe right at the lime o( the murder? Who's studio was Nell O'Neill's body found i/i? Who was it gave us a big mum bo-jumbo about bo- ing down in Dana Point at the barbecue pits when Mrs. O'Neill was killed? Who had the cameo in her possession and claims she didn't know how it got Ihere? Huh? Nobody but llagar Blair, a tough old gimlet-eyed doll who looks like she'd commit a murder soon's she'd fry an egg!" (To Be Continued) fire R daring fireman took the fire to water. The Wurtfiboro fire truck dashed a half mile up WurLsboro Mountain Find found a truck loaded with excelsior ablaze. Insufficient water was available to fight it. Leaping into the blazing [ruck's hot seat, Fireman Duke Semonite sped down the mountRin. He parked beside the village hydrant. The fire wns extinguished in a few minutes.
