Cer- | •*" tainly he could see nothing in jit which would make Margaret | Hughes dislike it, not when it jwas a production of her son's i brain. Nancy Drover had been 'fairly accurate in her description ;of the piece which had a pro- [logue and three scenes. Yet as iment, only the content, the deal- !ing with magic and fairies, the (miraculous granting of wishes [could have had any connection 'with Eddie Stone. At headquarters, Jim needed , only a glance at Mark Richard's 'face to know his friend was be- iyond the boiling point with rage. "I thought you were off your 'rocker, harping on the Hughes 'family^ But the gun's gone. I "The automatic?" "Yes. I sent it down here, remember. It got here all right, according to the man at the ; switchboard. It was put on my 'desk, wrapped and ready to send to the ballistic expert in Denver as seen as Pardon dug the slugs :from Mansfield. The slugs came along all right B«t !*?• automatic disappeared.*' "And?" Jim hoped his voice was completely noncommittal. "No one has been in and out but police officers and Chief Hughes." "What does the chief say?" -That's what I want to hear. I'd just as soon have someone with me when I tackle him again. But there's one thing I've done for you, Jim. About Mansfield having a phone. He only used it for calling long distance. His stock broker." Jim said, "It's a dial phone. How do they know h* never called local numbers?" "They don't say he never did. But they do say hia long distance bill wa§ l»rjf«, regularly. And paid promptly. I've talked to At wood about hii finance*. Manifold onJj kept a few hun- dred dollars in a checking account. He has several safe-deposit boxes though, and replenishes his account when it needs it He made no large withdrawal recently, and has not visited his deposit boxes. Atwood doesn't know how Mansfield made out ir» his speculations, but he does say Mansfield's fortune was quite large the last he knew." * • * "DICHAKDS led the way down -••*• the hall to the chief's office. It was very obvious to Jim that a great change had occurred. Mark Richards had never been one to kowtow to a superior, but before there had *t least been a certain deference which was missing now. "Tell us again, about the gun," Richard* said. "Nothing about ft," Hughes said calmly. "I came in, jm I went out for food, for cigars. If the gun is missing, it seems to me you are at fault for not taking proper step* to protect Tital evidence. 7 * "So you said," Mark admitted. He went on quickly. "One other little thing I've found out today. I understand you had a complete set of false teeth made a few months ago?" Hughes tried to register surprise, but Jim Dunn thought it did not quite come off. "I did. But what on earth could my false teeth have to do with anything? Anything that is your businew, I mean?" "I was talking to your dentist a while ago," Mark said. "He told me of some of the things he missed while you were having your work done. Some of the things which wef« stolen from his office. You want to know what they were?" "I suppose you'll insist on telling me." Mark looked at a small pice* ol paper which held som« notat. 'Til tell you what he missed. Some AlfinAte Elastic Unprcation Cream, some Monomers Liquid and Polymer Powder. In case you don't know, polymerization is the action of those last two to form an acrylic." Jim could tell now that Richards was in no danger of losing his head. Hughes too knew it, because h« stood up. "I have nothing more to say to you while you're in your present humor. I suggest you go and attend to your duties." • * * "VTARK RICHARDS' anger was gone when he and Jim started driving toward the Mansfield house. The dentist is willing to sweat it was young Tony Hughe* who took the stuff. He came for his father, because Hughes didn't feel up to driving home. The dentist was doing some resurfacing or retreading or whatever you call it, on Hughes' plates. He used this stuff in his lab, just across a hall from the room with the dentist's chair. The dentist saw young Hughe* coming out of the lab, stuffing something in hit coat pocket. And it iant th* first time the chiefs son has picked up loose odds and ends." Jim nodded. "I remember hearing. Did you show the dentist the fangs the monsters wore?" "Yes. The pink stuff is the same material. Of course it's well known, used a lot He couldn't swear that false work was made with hie particular material.* Jim Dunn said, "So now w« have quite a bit against the young genius. The ball point pen, initialed G. W., which h* could have borrowed from his pal George Westrick. Found at the sees*, of the crime—or one scene at least. Found at the spot where the weapon was found. And by th« way, anything on that?" Mark said grimly, "I asked our chief about the pick. He swears he hasn't had one of them in his store for 15 or 20 years. But he might have had one lying where his boy could find it, especially since young Tony had such taking ways. And dont forget, Iddie Stone thought a lot of Tony.* (To Be Conttnotl) FRICKLIS AND HIS FRIINDi A POUGH80Y/ AM' THEY HttCE VVII7 A ElVERNAORE IS A TEMPORARY POSSESSOR OF A BRITISH SPOfcTCARSHlPPEP TO HIM BY A 6ROVER 1 SHAN'T REST UNTIL % 1 UNCORK THE MY5- "Dad wants m« to stick around for a man-to-man talk that mtant I've got to clean the great* off th« garage floor!"
