L HUEY 879 Washinjrton-Memphis, Tenn. Phone 37-4449 TVBNIC «wm»ed the pole fteett. *"* "Nobody's dimbed this pole tecently. There would be fresh scars from climbing irons. But •M you'd need would be another puttey fastened to the basket itself. And maybe a cord trailing along. When it was in position, the man waiting in that bush could grab the trailing cord, pull the basket to the ground. When it w«s emptied, Eddie would pull on his long cord and the basket would go up to the wire before it started on the trip uphill." "I suppose it would work. Pretty childish way to go about collecting extortion money." Jim smiled then went on in a jvoice that had suddenly grown jgrim. "Don't forget it was Eddie iStone up at the station. I have Jan idea such a plan would have [appealed to him." "At least," Mark said, "your itheory would account for the iwads of paper around this pole. (So we'll have to have them gath- iered up and checked for prints. lAnd I suppose the guy down at :thls end waiting until the last ipay-off had been made—accord- ling to the time schedule—then •tent up a glass of strawberry (pop loaded with cyanide?" I "An empty glass," Jim said. ("And a container for the pop. !So it wouldn't spill. I think that ;was Eddie Stone's reward for his 'work." : He walked over to the stake imarker where the pen had been 'found, stared down at it as 'if the piece of wood should speak. He shook his head. "Be mighty careless to lose that initialed .pen." H* itarted back toward Mark, the sunlight glittered briefly from a small square of metal, level with the hard dirt. Jim ttuffed at it absently with •his toe. It refused to more. H« (bent over, scraped dirt more cautiously. "Find something, Jim? "Ac aft-metal on*." He scraped with his knife. "An ice pick, sharpened so rt'd fit the description of the murder weapon Dr. Pardon gave us." The two men unearthed the ice pick carefully, and Mark put it in a roll of newspapers. It was an advertising pick, one stamped with the name of the donor, in this case the Hughe* Furniture Company. 'And the ball point pen right near by," Dunn said. "Complete with initials, G. W. Why, Mark? One of them might have been lost That pick wasn't lost, though. It was stamped into the hard ground. Was that to hide it? Or were we supposed to find it—after we located the ball point pen?" * * * 'TEN minutes later they were A still discussing Jim's questions, when the man in denim jacket and jeans walked up, "Been waiting until you boys got through here. Didn't like to interrupt. Morning, Lieutenant." "Vern Bruce, isn't it?" Richards demanded. "That's right. Used to know you when you were younger. Made a kite for you once, a long time ago." The man was tall, with a narrow head covered by much too long black hair streaked with gray. There was gray stubble on his cheeks, which made hii fact appear not overly clean. "You want something?" "It's this way, Lieutenant. You know where I live? Next to old Gaylord Mansfield'* place." "I know." "Well, I b**n waiting around awhile. Thought you or aome other cop would come around after what happened last night to the Stone boy. But I finally de- ckltd I might as well come up and get you. Might be serious." "Then get to the point," Richards suggested. "Something's wrong over at ^Mansfield's place." Wrong? What's wrong?" I didn't want to take a look around. Might run into Gaylord, •We aren't very friendly. Haveat since some years ago when he wanted to borrow my Leppy cat for an experiment." "Hold it a minute," Richards snapped. "I know how hipped you are on your pets. Forget about them. How do you know there's something wrong art Mansfield's?" "You told me to forget about my cats. All right. I won't bother you with them. And so I cant tell you how I know there'* something wrong." "I suppose your cats told you?" There was a glint of what might be humor in Bruce's eyes. "That's right," he drawled. Jim intervened before Richards exploded. "Maybe we ought to drop around, Mark. Remember Mansfield ignored the demands." "Might come and see," Bruce suggested mildly. He started off without another word, and Jim and Mark followed. • • • TPHE two friends went through a gate into a large garden. Along the right-hand fence which cut off this garden from the Mansfield property, a 12-inch plank had been nailed so that it formed a long bench, a good five and a half feet from ground level, and six inches from the fence top. At least a dozen cat* of all sizes, shapes, and colors sat there. They sat and stared over th« fence into the ipace beyond. "Hi, kids," Vern Bruce said. Furry faces and gleaming eyes turned momentarily toward the men, then returned once more to tht important buslnew of itminf ever the top of the fence. "See what I mean?" Bruce demanded, "They've been like that since first thing this morning. Won't even take time to come down to eat. That's how I know there's something wrong over there," CORRUGATED METAL CULVERT PIPE Automatic Flood Gates Concrete Culvert Tile Concrete Septic Tanks Metal Septic Tanks Best Prices — Prompt Delivery W«bb Culvert Tile Co. 61 at State Line Phone 8414 Hybbard Hard wart NEED PAINT?
