That was her brother, Jeff Frey. TM-IE next morning F,de learned, A to her vast relief, that the cruise was coming to an unexpected end. Storm warnings had been received by radio. On the advice of the vessel's captain, Northcott was putting back to New York. It was a welcome turn of events. In Nortbcott's presence, on his U^at and receiving his hospitality. 1»» by WU $«m<e. Inc. fell ciistinelly uncomfortable low. And there was another, even more urgent reason why she wanted to get home. Jeft was due to reVmn from his vacation. She could hardly wait to confront htm; 0 gel to the truth of this business. Jeft arrived early in the evening. He looked brown and rested. Hde let him enjoy a drink before j tackling him. Then she took both I Jefl and Myron into a litlle room that had been her father's study. I'm afraid, JefT," she began hesitantly, "that I've got to spoil your homecoming with . , . well, office troubles." He was instantly on the alert. "Now what? Can't a guy go away /or a week without trouble breaking loose?" "Apparently not. You see, Jeff, 1 -Tpent thU week-end on Mr. Northcotl's boat" "Oho," said Jeff. "Getting in rJghl with the client, eh? You . . ." Something in her face drove the levity from his tone. "Well," he finished suspiciously, "what about it?" "Jeff," Ede saM sharply. *1 simply wnnt to know whether you've sold, or are planning to sell, your shares in the agency to 1 NorlhcoU?" A hunted look came into Jeff's eyes.

So — you're the only one, b*»ide myself, who could sell 25," JerT managed to me*t h«r eye* then. "Northcott's lying," he said desperately, "He doesn't control my shares." "Then why on earth would he say such * thing?" Myron spoke, suddenly, unexpectedly. "Better tell her, Jeff." along she had refused to accept the idea that Jeff would negotiate with Northcott in secret. Sh* had confronted him, hoping, expecting, to hear his Indignont denial. But now he was virtually admitting it. She sat down abruptly. "I found out," she said dully. "when Northcolt tried to buy my interest. When I turned him down, he tried to frighten me by saying that—that he practically controlled 2fi per cent of (he stock already. Well, Jeff"—her voic« swung on him. "So you're in this too?" "No," Myron said, almost com- forlnbly. "I'm not." "All right," said Jeff, frowning. '1 suppose you'd have had to <cnow, stx>ner or later. They did approach me, Ede. They wanted o buy my shares. And I ... well, told them I'd think it over." "You know perfectly wel) Fa;her didn't want any of u> to sell he stock. Why didn't you refute?"
