First St. — Phone 8637 XXVI TJICHARDS and Dunn left at last, and Mark sent the two officers who had helped in the .search to Mansfield's apartment to lend those searching there a liand. "Personally," Mark said, "I ,could use a breakfast now. I fknow Joan will have something iready." "Suits me," Jim agreed. "Tell line a little more about this Vern Bruce. Just another of Colorado •City's odd characters?" Mark Richards chuckled. '"You'll notice I didn't want to •rile him? He's been bothered, in the past, and by our local experts. A few years ago it even igot as far as the courts. There •was an attempt made to have 'him certified—declared insane or rat least incompetent. Bruce real- fly had a time for himself then. jit was pitiful. Anyway when he [got through with them, the psy- ichiatrists were lucky not to be [certified themselves. And the •'story goes one of them gave up .•practice and opened a trout farm. [ Vern Bruce doesn't hav« much 'trouble any more." After a full breakfast, Mark iwent off to check on Nash's story, land Joan discreetly removed [herself to another part of the :Drover house. Nancy and Jim sat stiffly side (by side on the davenport. Nancy [spoke of what was on her mind tat last. "The funeral, Jim. You iknow it's this afternoon?" "Yes. Three o'clock." "I'm counting on you, Jim. I —I feel as if I were going to fly :into a million piece*. Jim, you'll 'be there with me, won't you?" "Of course I will." She tried a smile. "Don't eveft tell me I'm being *illy, Jim. I dust have to know you'll be there. And 111 probably tsk for reassurance within the next five minutes. But now, let's talk about something else, anything c'"-e. To keep me from think- lAf." "Let's see. How would this do for a subject? Did you happen to see a school play that was written and produced by young Tony Hughes?" "Yes. Of course I did. As a social affair." Nancy actually smiled. "Quite a thing, that play. All about fairies, and wishes coming true. But oh, so disillusioned and bitter." "Wonder if you'd know where I could get hold of a copy of that play?" CHE looked at him curiously, ^ but did not ask his reasons. She went to the phone, dialed a number, and talked for a while in a low voice. "All fixed," she said on her return. "I talked to the principal of the high school. He'll loan you a copy of the play. Had to be certain, though, you were of age, before he'd agree to take it out of his safe." "That bad?" Jim asked. Nancy shrugged. "I was told there were certain 'precocious' passages in this, copy, which were censored before the play was presented. Want to fo <et it?" "In a minute. First tell me something about Gaylord Mansfield." "Gaylord Mansfield. I've heard of him for years. Won't talk to anyone around here, though he used to take tripi. And he playi the stock market and writes unpublished books." "I didn't know about the stock market," Jim said. "That might be the reason ht has a telephone." "Is it necessary to have a reason for a phone? Oh, I see. Hit not talking and all. I think hi* silence just extends to local people. Jim, I do remember thert was some sort of scandal about hit etrly life. Let'i fo by and talk to Mary Holt She'll know all about Maiwfleld if anyone does." They picked up the copy of and finally found old Mary Hol1 directing operations at her sawmill. In her seventies, but still straight as an icicle, she wore a completely disreputable coat sweater with one button and two safety pins, a sawdust-covered skirt of corduroy, and a long- billed cap of the same materiaL She led them to a tiny office and told Mansfield's story. "A LONG time ago," Mary A Holt said, "around 1909 I would say, his wife left him. There was talk of another man, but somehow I never believed thst. There was a divorce, which Gaylord got. A filthy affair. He —well, he was not a gentleman, as we used to say. At any rate Hazel went East. I hope she found happiness somewhere. And Gaylord—well, he stayed right here in that huge old place of his. For a while, he still tried to entertain, but he was dropped socially. For a while he tried to brazen it out, but he didn't have the stamina for that No one would speak to him, and gradually be stopped speaking to anyone. A revenge on Colorado City, I suppose. He evolved a system oi cards to take care of such speech as would have been necessary in everyday living. And he kept on writing. I read his last published book, Jim. A cruel thing, I thought. Cruel and filled with self pity. I've heard he's made several killings in *h* stock market since then. But Tete Atwood could probably tell you more about that.** "How old ia Mansfield?" Jim a*ked. "Old enough," Mary Holt said dryly. "A little younger than I." Only then did she ask the obvious question. "By the way, what has our Gaylord been up to now?" "Mansfield got himself shot this morning," Jim laid. "Killed?" "Critical, but ht was still alivt the las? I heard." Too ted," Miry Ho* amid. -Too bad about hit getting shot.* Sht smiled grimly and added, "Too bad it didn't happen SO years sro " (!• * Political Announcement The Courier News is authorized to announce the following candidate for the Preferential Primary July 27.
