I Can't Cry Now McElfrwh Hlr IX IE Ward living room had a lived m look that brought a nostalgic catch to Katy Elmo's throat. It was like Chris's den wifh Chris in it—the smell of tobacco from the forgotten pouch on the coffee Lible, a book open on a chair arm, the shoes'that someone —Dave?—had stepped out of before going to bed. Katy picked up the telephone Surely by now Ted would be up. She looked at the clock on the radio. He went to work al 7, and it was after 6. ... Slie nave the op- eralor the number of Mrs. Porter's boarding house. " 'Aloo?" came Mrs. Porter's nasal complaint at being taken from her breakfast. "May } speak to Ted Jordan, please?" "Who's it?" suspiciously. Katy. imagining the flabby chops ^,. cing licked at such a gossipy morsel so early in the morning, told her. "He ain't In yet. Ha'd to work the night shift." "But he didn't tell me—" "Girlie, he said he had tub work." Mrs. Porter whined suggestively. "I see. ter. Thank you, Mrs Por. Last night Ted had not mentioned changing shifts, but of course they had talked murder, murd?r, murder until Kaly had thought she would scream,' even I after Dave had appeared. She hung up- With Ted ofl at 7, she could pick him up. She closed her mind to Dave Argus's warning In slay here. Ted would want to know He had the right to know. After all, he was Chris's friend too. Somehow, she thought, 1 always go back to Chris. • • • ^THINKING about it later, when •*• the wa* IK tLc cax, driving across town to the factory where Ted worked, Katy tried telling herself that perhaps she was wrong, there might be tio connection between the two deaths even though Agnes Jerome had said she knew something about Chris, but it didn't help. It even hurt. She wanted so badly lo prove Chris had not murdered poor old Link Murphy and Agnes Jerome, as o/ Saturday night, had been the one connecting link in the broken chain of circumstances. By the dash clock, it was 20 minutes until the change of the shift when Katy parked her car near Ihe factory's main gate. There was little other tr.ifflc; the street looked harcen, forclx>ding in the early light, and the factory crouched like a waiting monster, the only signs of activity the black smoke belching from its stacks. Katy yawned. Sitting slill made ier drowsy, she had slept so little these last two weeks. It would be easy lo drift off. She shook off the weariness. She said, "Come, Major!" and Jot out of the car, the dog at her leels. A walk to the corner would rouse her. The October air was bracing, with more than a hinl of winter's approach, especially when one wore a borrowed coat and jacket leither of which fit, and no stock- ngs. And bedroom slippers. She glanced down at the scuffed leather slippers, several sizes smaller than he neat Oxfords Emma Ward had ^tiered. She knew Dave would be angry Thinking that, she stopped at the corner. Somewhere a switch en- Jine was chuffing in lonely mono- one, there were a Jew cars, fac- ory-hound, but the town didn't seem quite alive yet. In a few minutes, »t 7, it wouM b«.' She looked around. A tired neon halfway down the block caujtu htr ey«, Uuty't. Marty's on Mason Avenue, where Agnes Jerome worked. With a grim, tense feeling clutching at her chest, she walked toward it, Agnes Jerome had called her from that drab little restaurant- bar with its jukebox and its pay phone booth, and someone had heard her'and known he had to kill again. Kaly swallowed her fear. She pushed open the door. "Hey, lady, no dogs-oh." The "oh" was flat, curiously unwelcome: "Hello, Miss Elmo." "Hello, Johnny." "I didn't reckanize you * "No," Katy said. "No, I imagine not. Two weeks ago—no, two weeks and two days ngo—she would have corrected his pronunciation, he would have been a former pupil who had forgotten the things she had tried to teach him Now she just glanced down to Km- ma Ward's too-big dress belted to m.-ike it fit and shoved her hands deeper into Ihe pockets of Dave Argus's jacket and said, "Johnny I want to talk to you." JOHNNY JEROME* picked B p « cloth and began polishing the counter. Diligently. More diligently, Katy hnd an Idea, than « had been polished for a long time. "You shouldn't be working Yo« should he in school." ."' eat la work, l g 0 nuts — thmkin'l" There's the phone booth, from where Johnny's sister called Johnny, were you working Saturday night?" His dark, lowered head almost .?,,u ve ' lhc nod * as » slight When your sister called me?" "I—I guess so. But I worked the restaurant Saturday night. Aggie wailed tables in the bar, back yonder." He nodded toward a remote, rear room. Katy's heart sank. -Then yo« didn't see too much of her?" "On Saturday nights you dont' see too much lot nobody, 'round here. You're too busy to notice I mean." "Yes, I know, but surely—" -Maybe that was Aggie's trouble. Miss Elmo. She wasn't tver too busy lo keep from seein 1 thinss." IT* B* ' Television- Tonite, Tomorrow WMCT. Memphis.
