A GW5S JEROME wouldnt htrvc known the path through the •,-oods waj there! "Did she know ibout the path, Katy?" Deputy 5herift* Dave Argus asked, Katy Elmo shook her head, don't v «ow. Site might have known, I suppose." 'Of course she could have Imown about the path," Ted Jordan spoke angrily. "Agnes had lived around here all her life. She could have heard of it—she might even have wiilked It sometime. \nd what was to keep her from mding it the night she was killed?" Dave shrugged. "Bui she prob- iljly didn't know about it and even it she did, I doubl if she was familiar enough with this woods to want to walk it in pitch darkness. No," he shook his head. JI Ihink Miss Jerome was waylaid A - cen the road and Ihe house— the lane probably — and her .-_y was dropped 0(7 (he foot >ridge. Maybo Ihe murderer hoped it would be called an accidental eath from a fall on those rocks." It was a straw and Katy grasped ,. "It could have beenl -Oh, it •nust have been!" "Katy. Katy!" Ted cried. "Don't m see what Dave's doing to you? le's trying to make it seem like ou did it!" Then, "I won't have I, Dave. You let Katy alone!" Dave Argus didn't even bother o laugh, but there was a twinkle cep in his voice. "Come out of it, *crl. Nobody's accusing Katy of i anything." i "Of course not, Ted," Knly tried ::lo sniind as if she helievccl it. ^ Ted growled, "Just see'that you t don't." He fell for his pipe, found ';it on the mantel, leaned over to top it on on andiron, and then tamped fresh tobacco into its tra- jrsnt bowl, all very dclibcralcly. When he finished, he could say quietly, "Sorry, Argus. Bui I won't see Katy cashed around." JT was 10:30 when ttre two men left tr>gether, Dave to ride with Ted as far as the highway where he had parked his own car whtn he .stumbled in the dark along the path which he said Agnes" Jerome had not taken. And, later, as she stared wide- eyed into the darkness ot her bedroom, she had Ihe uncomfortable feeling that Dave was right, so right. Even if Agnes Jerome had known about the short-cut to the mailbox, which Kaly doubted, she would not have been familiar enough with Ihe rough palh to have risked it in the darkness. Dave Argus was right, Katy reasoned with herself. If Agnes had been followed, she would have had a chance . , . but Ihe killer had boon waiting for her. He had come . . . wailed and killed. Here. Kaly sat up in bed, suddenly weak. The palms of her hands fell clammy-cold when she pressed them to her face. Where docs that leave me?" she thought franlically, almost wishing that she had (aught Criminology or something instead of English Lit and Composition m and IV. Maybe then she would know if she were more suspect than ever despite Dave Argus's assurances. . . . Sometime, somehow, lulled by the comforting rhythm of Major's breathing on his rug beside her bed, she slept. Dawn was becoming mauve and pink and crimson out her east window when she awoke, .is tired as if she had not slept at all. 'Monday," she thought, "and what a ghastly hour. Especially when you have nothing to do ... no school lo go to." That was what hurt so, of course. What she missed, next to Chris. She flung back the covers, swuns icr legs over (ho side of the bed. ^ frowned. Major wasn't there, thick coat tickling her bare £ceL. She pulled on her robe, found her slippers. Jt wasnt like Major to leave her. She found the dog In the kitchen, sitting on his lean haunches at a window overlooking the stairway and the barn. He thumped the floor with a warj UiH when sh« spoke his name. "What is it, Major?" She went to look out, too. The barn looked as it always did, only perhaps a little more forlorn in the gray light of early morning Through an open door— should that door be open? Perhaps, she thought Ted might have forgotten to close it when he got the wood last night —she could see the ricks of apple wood and oak. The garden tools were stored there, too, and the lawn mover, and Chris had ripped out some dilapidated slalls and made a garage. Beside her, Major stilrod, and a growl began deep in his barrel chest. . . . Was there a movement, out there? was, Katy knew, althoiiRh she didn't see it. Major's backbone seemed to rise, sharp-ridged Ihrongh his coat. She thought! "He's come back— the killer has come- back!"' She ran through (he house to the front hall. Ted's number her mind groped for it as she snatched up the telephone Ted tad said the killer might come back. After an eternity, she realized what was happening she was hearing absolutely nothing but her own frightened breathing. No "live" sound of an open telephone line, no operator, nothing! "Major!" she cried then. "Major come wilh me!'* ' Halfway to (own, wi(h Major ercc( in the seat beside hc-r and the road unrolling behind the car like a dirly gray ribbon from a runaway spool, she realized she could not go to Ted. Not looking like this! She was wearing her chcnilt* robe and sculled bedroom slippers and no make-up but her terror Coins to Ted like this was impossible. Heavens! she thought, Mrs. Porter — dear correct Abigail Porter— would be horrified, but not so horrillcd that her chattering tongue would be slilled. (To Television- Tonire, Tomorrow WMCT. Memphis.
