He shakily ripped open « pack of spearmint and threw me a stick. He was chewing two ml a time this evening. On the desk was a brown grocery bag, packed full ami standing upright. [Through the open window came !th« jumpy music of the record- player. It was a big night—the Friday dance—the only time in the Week when w« had neckties and evening gowns. I read the note Al had written: TMi l> ill I can rMw, poslttvelr. Any mor, irould bankrupt me. and inon r wouldn't cure who you UTked \o. So u rton't par you to be » hog. Be satisfied: He stuffed the bag under his •rm. "Okay, let's go out and be •omebody's sucker." "Taking the office gun3" I said. "No gun," he grunted. "I don't •want to shoot anybody, and I don't think anybody'll want to shoot me.." Our shoes made a slight rattle on the cinders, like sounds being made far-off. Al chewed with tight Jaws. "I hope they're all at the dance," he muttered. "1 don't feel like running inlo anybody." The little hall lights shone faintly. The cottages looked deserted, never-Iived-in, but ! knew there were girls in some of the rooms. There were always some who missed a dance—girls who'd made a conquest during the first few ; days of their stay, only to have the guy snatched away by some seductive new arrival—and now, shunning the public humiliation of the dance, they slayed In their rooms and wrote home what • wonderful Um« the/ w«r« hav- The cinders ended—we were walking on soft dirt. The air was rich with cool piny smells. Al held up his . luminous watch, "Only seven more minutes," he said unsteadily. "L«t's hurry up." "Yen—you get there late, they'll make you take it back." I stopped. I caught his arm. I listened. Soft footfalls. rpHEY stopped Immediately. I looked back, squinting, blinded by motes ot darkness. I thought I saw a dim figure— I gave Al a push. • "Keep going." I slipped off the road to my right and crouched behind a tree. Al's footsteps clomped away. In a moment I heard the crumple of earth again. I tensed. I tested my came. Middle-sized. a robbery or anything, half of the money will be saved, anyway. That's- using the old bean," Healey said. "Now suppose we ake a -wallc back to your place and have a little talk." As soon as we were Inside the office, Healey closed the door. .urned at Al and said, "We know that body was on your land." Al laid his lower jaw on his rhest. ! IIe groped behind him -for lis chair and unrolled himself into t. "What body?" "Let's cut the kidding," Healey said. "Once we got on to the fact the body had been dragged It was easy to find where from." Al was rapidly stuffing gum between his teeth. " footing. A man Trim. Springy. No hat Light suit and open-throat shirt. It was Sgt. Franklin Healey, Pennsylvania State Police. Dressed for a night out. "Taking a walk?" he said pleasantly. "Swell—nice night for it," He walked quickly ahead. "Is that your friend Kemmer up there?" Al was floundering about 10 yards away. "Good evening, Kemmer," Henley said. "Looks like everybody's out promenading tonight." "Yes," Al mumbled, "it's a—it's "Nice night for a walk, like I was telling Morrison, Say—I see you've brought your lunch along." Al hunched the bag into his armpit. "Yen—my lunch—I gotta eat all the time, account of my colitis." Healey smiled sympathetically, and reached under Al's arm and took the bag. He popped a pencil flashlight inside. "Look at that. Now,'jvhat'do you want to carry all this money chided. around for?" he Abruptly Al said, "The sa f«. The door won't lock good. When I go out for a walk, I take halt of the with me, M w cts« ther»'« nuvvin about -it," Owh shzhph he spluttered through the wad. "Supposing it was on my land—does that prove moved it?" "Not by ilsclf. But there were couple of strange coincidences. Somebody used the phone .to tip us to it being on Stacey's land; somebody with a fake accent. Then you called Slacey." "Somebody's trying to get me In trouble. That animal Stacey. He wants to push all his troubles on me." Al's voice got shriller as he jegan to believe his own spiel: 'I ain't going to stand for that kind ot monkey business. I'll get a lawyer to take care of him.", • • « TTEAI,EY let him run down. "And who were you paying ort with this dough?" A! cleared his throat. "T told you—" "The safe wouldn't lock. I know." Healey . moved Iitheir across the room to the safe. He pulled al the handle— The door swung open. "You outfoxed me that lime," Healey said. "No foxing about it," Al said daintily. "When I tell you something, it's good as gold." Healey seemed abstracted now. "Kcmmcr, till we clear this thing up, I want you to slick around. Don't leave' your grounds." Healey went out. Al followed him to the front doorway and watched him walk away past th« rec hall. , Then Al came back, tmilinf. "Nice guy, for a cop."
