Chapter XXIV Martha screamed, opened her eyes again. But it was not Ciznik who had fired. His revolver clattered to the floor, and he stood there clutching his right wrist and rocking with the sudden pain. Suddenly the room was filled with men, all struggling around Ciznik and Ling. A young coast guard officer shoved through the mob. "Take them aboard," he ordered, and came toward the two women. "Are you all right?" "Y-yes," said Martha weakly. "I'm Lieutenant ' Howison. We didn't know you girls were aboard here or we wouldn't have got BO rough out there." Quickly he tin- bound them. "Well take care of you. There's a doctor aboard." Howison's men made fast work of sending Ciznik and the Oriental along the passageway. With the officer between them, Martha and Betty followed, both glad for his firm assistance. On deck the confusion had subsided. Ciznik's men were meekly transferring to the coast guard. An officer and crew were making ready to take over the smuggling ship. Suddenly Martha stopped dead still, her face growing paler than before. "What's wrong?" Howison asked. She rubbed a trembling hand over her damp forehead. "N-nothing. I'm all right now." She had seen Gerry Neal, unmistakably, aboard the coast guard cutter! His presence among Ciznik's men was not what had struck her as motionless. But rather it was the hurting thought that not once had he tried to help her, even make her more comfortable. Not once had he owned the courage to face her at last, and admit the truth. Suddenly she felt herself leaning too heavily against the young officer. "I-I think I'm going to faint."

"Betty! Betty, we're not back on that—" "No . . ." Betty pushed her gently back. "We're on Uncle Sammy's ship this time, heading for Seattle. And friend Ciznik and his playboys are in the brig, or so Lieutenant Howison says." Betty grinned infectiously. "He's nice, isn't he?" "I—I was too scared to notice." "Well," Betty told her, "you should have stayed on your feet and you'd have had time to notice!" "We've been under way an hour. The doctor says you're okay. You came to once, and he gave you a sedative. Wliile you've been snoozing I've been having dinner in the officer's quarters. Hungry?" "Sort of." "The cook's keeping something for you. I—" She was interrupted by a polite knock on the cioor. It was Lieutenant Howison. "How are you by this time?" he smiled pleasantly, set his neat officer's cap on the table. "Much better," Martha told him "Sorry to go out on you like that.' "No trouble at all," Howison said. "I was telling Haynes at dinner that it's all been a pleasure You know, the coat guard service gets pretty monotonous at times, it't not every day we can round up a gang like this—and rescue benutifii young ladies in the bargain!" He wa; directing his words at Martha but the latter noticed his special glance at Betty. "You should get him to tell you what we were up against," Betty .suggested. "Probably Miss Brittain doesn't want to hear about it right now." LOS ANGELES, April 20 (/P) — Clark Gable brusquely swapped his makeup box for a witness chair today, ready to deny under solemn oath he is a father. The No. 1 screen lover (pre-Robert Taylor era) became witness No. 1 In the mail fraud trial of Mrs. Violet Wells Norton, whose attempt to establish the patevnity of her 13-year- old daughter resulted in her arrest last January. Mrs. Norton, the United States government charges, wrote Gable for money in recent years on the plea he had "wooed and won" her in England in 1922-23. Witness No. 2 oh the list of Assistant U. S. Attorney Jack Powell today was diamond-festooned Mae West, best known for her sociological scren study, "She Done Him Wrong." It was to Miss West that Mrs. Norton assertedly addressed a letter a year ago asking for a motion picture opportunity for young Gwendoline, "Gable's child.' Four townsfolk from Portland, Ore.; Radio Commentator Jimmy Ftdler and Publicity Mdn Terrel de Lapp were relied on by Prosecutor Powell to complete the government's case in a day or so. The Oregonians were expected to testify that Gable was selling neckties and lumber packing in the Pacific Northwest at the time Mrs. Norton claimed he was her suitor In an English country cottage. Fidler was said to have been appoach- ed by Mrs. Norton when she came to HpllywoQd in 1936, De Lapp has handled Miss West's press relations. Re&l Estate Loans! We offer F, H.

Then the coast ?uard came into the picture. This joat.was sent around from the east coast to replace a slower cutter. We didn't even know why ourselves until now." "You should see the opium Ciznifc iad aboard!" Betty exclaimed. Martha nodded. "I did see some of it. Why is it put into cans filled with flour?" "That's to keep it dry," Howison ;olcl her. "You see, the opium smuggling liners from the Orient toss the stuff overboard in sacks tied with cork floats. At the top of the sack s a flashlight sealed in a bottle. Then the faster, smaller boats, like Ciznik's, come along the steamer anes and pick the stuff up. They transfer it to shore where Ciznik planned to transport it all over the Martha looked at, Betty. "If ever we get to the old home town again we'll never leave, will we?" "Don't say that," Howison went on quickly. "Miss Haynes has prom- sed to come to Seattle again next ummer, after I've done Alaska duty Anyhow, you can't leave ' ;he coast right away. You may have ' ;o stay to give some evidence — and you're both going to have dinner with me ashore." Martha smiled. "Is'nt three a crowd?" (To Be Continued) "I do, though," him. Martha assured "Well the fact is that you WASHINGTON, April 20 W) — Secretary Perkins undertook today at tripartite conference to bring leaders of capital and labor into agreement on a national policy to avert strikes and lockouts. Business and union representatives who joined government officials for the closed meeting said they were at a loss whether to exptect a "love feast" or an outbreak of tempers on the sit-down strike issue and amendment of the Wagner labor relations act. Indications were no final conclusions would be reached but some general statements might be drawn up for consideration in later conferences. The meeting brought together leaders on both sides jh the organized labor dispute over industrial and craft unionism, representatives of national business organizations and of the railroad, the steel, oil, textile and other industries, and a group experienced in the arbitration of labor disputes. Miss Perkins' conference was arranged after the Supreme Court upheld the Wagner act last week. With labor's collective bargaining rights now a certainty, she said the time had come to reach an understanding on procedure and methods. John L. Lewis accepted an invitation as head of the Committee for Industrial Organization. William Green, president of the American Federation of Labor, sent word the meeting of the federation council might keep him from the confer- girls found yourselves right in thn windup of a case the T-men have been working on for a Ions; time." " T-men?" "Yes. Treasury Department men- customs agents. We were just helping them out on this little deal. Ciz- nik has had a syndicate for the last 10 or 11 years, I'm told. It stretched all up and dbwn the coast, and back into Chicago and Detroit. He had the idea to really go in for transporting quantities of dope—with trailer caravans. He figured they would not be regarded with suspicion, and they wouldn't be running afoul of the truck legislation and license'laws in all the various states. Also, he figured they'd be big enough to carry other stuff, too. Unstamped liquor. Maybe bring aliens into the industrial centers. Oh, he was going to go in for it on a big scale. ! "That was the trouble," Betty mentioned. "He got too darned big." "That's right. You see, what he didn't realize when he started all this new idea was that one of the T-men had been working a long time right in his syndicate. His name was Guy Weeks, and he'd even taken a. Chinese blood oath with some of Ciznik's Chinese gang, so he could get more information." "But if this T-man knew all about Cienik why didn't they get him long ago?" Howison shrugged. "If they'd shot too soon they wouldn't have been able to clean up the whole mess. This was a big thing, you know. There are News Want-Ads Get Results.
