Tony Hnarliea In in Denver, vrhcre he I has been attcndinjr college. * * * XVII HUGHES said his son had been visiting in town this ;ek. "Matter of fact he came to go to Mark's wedding. But went back to Denver on the -afternoon bus." He glanced at his watch. "Be yesterday afternoon now I guess. My son is attending summer school in Den' ver." "I understand he's tak-ng a ^degree in psychology?" Jim put "That*s right." "Then perhaps Eddie Stone interest him—as a case?" Hughes said pityingly, "Apparently you don't know much 'about the subject. There is noth- jing interesting in '-\ mt^tal defective." "Your son tell you that?'' "Yes." Chief Hughes seemed }to think the statement was a Ht- itle too blunt. "Don't misunderstand. My son was always kind ito Eddie Stone. But then, my son is fundamentally kind. His 'igreat grasp of—of—things give* him a clear and kindly viewpoint. But what I'm getting at •is that there was absolutely noth- •ing in common between them." *Tv« heard your ion won A science prize in high school, and that he wrote the senior class .play." . "Wrote and produced it," the father said. Mark Richards was impatient. He pushed a phone toward bis superior. "This talk isn't getting ill aoiwbtrt. Can tip xour HA and make sure he's in Denver. Make sure he took that afternoon bus." Chief Hughes' face was colored with anger, but the blinking and sliding motion of his eyes betrayed another emotion. Nevertheless he snatched up the phone, gave the operator a Denver number. "Fine time of morning to phone," he grumbled. "Mind if we listen in?" Mark asked. "I insist on it." * a • A YOUNG-SOUNDING voice •^* on the Denver end of the line said, "Hello?" 'Tony?" "No. This is George. George Westrick." "Oh, yes, George. This is Mr. Hughes, Tony's father. Could I speak to Tony?" "I'll go see if he's in yet, Mr. Hughes. I don't think he is." "Go see," Hughes ordered. Jim and Mark exchanged glances during the few minutes' wait. The voice of George Westrick came back. "He's not in yet, Mr. Hughes. He went out to catch a late show and I guess he's not back yet." "A late show? Do you know what time it is?" "Yes, sir." "George, is Tony out playing poker again?" "Oh, no, Mr. Hughes. Nothing like that. He got back this afternoon on the bus as I guess you know. We sat around quite awhile after dinner and then Tony decided to go to a show." "But to was there this afternoon and evening?" "Oh, yes sir. He got back on the bus as you know." "Thank you, George. You mifht leave a message for Tony to call me when he comes in. I don't care what time It is." "Ill do that, Mr. Hughe*. Good night." A receiver was hung up quickly. im u* Mark Bichu* w«et back to the other office where Chief Hughes was just replacing his own receiver. "You heard everything?" "Yes." "I hope you're satisfied then,* Hughes said. "And now that's cleared up, IT oe getting along back to Ed Stone's. Shouldn't have left my wife alone there this long. T f Ed should wakft up a%ain, no telling what he'd do." As Hughes left t ,e room his eyes darted for a moment toward tl e piles of .anon He did not sa; anything but hurried out. Mark looked at Jim Dunn quizzically. "Good alibi," Jim said. 'If you want to believ. George." "Yeah," Richard said. 'Tf you believe George." "I xvondered if I was imagining things." "No. That Westrick boy was covering up for Tony, Jr. Something's going on, all right." "Poker, you think?" "Could be. Could be anything." "George Westrick," Jim said. "G. W. The initials on the pen." Mark Richards nodded slowly. "Of course, it could be coincidence." • * • ^FHE search of Eddie Stone's •*• room produced .no sign of any of the money. 1 either Mark nor Jim actually expected it would, yet the search was something which had to be done. There was a huge chest of mechanical toys. There : a single bed, a white dresser, a small bookcase filled with picture editions of fairy stories. * small radip still hummed with power although the station to which, it was tuned was off the air. Mark snapped off the radio after noting the station to which it was tuned. "We might get something from that. Time I mean, if he had a favorite program. No point in wasting any more energy here." "The fairy stories," Jim said. "They mifht be important. So many of them, Mark.
