First St. — Phone 3-8637 j XXX3V r|T was after eight when Jim r- parked hie borrowed car be- ifore the Drover house. His lack [of sleep had caught up with him during the drive, and the one eye iwhich was not swollen shut, kept jclosing of its own accord. He let Ibis head slump forward on the (steering wheel, decided to rest [hie good eye for a short while. i The sun was much higher and twarmer when he was roused by someone shaking his shoulder. He fought the return to consciousness, tried to drop off to sleep again. "Wake up! Wake upr He got the one good eye open, looked into Mary Holt's anxious face. He tried to smile at her, and the effort must have been ghastly because she stepped back hastily. "Are you hurt, or drunk?" she demanded. "Neith«r, I guess," Jim said. "How's Nancy?" "How do you expect her to be? She's inside nearly losing her mind. This your idea of a war of nerves, sprawling out here » the car where she can see you?" "Must have had a little nap," Jim admitted. He slid over on the seat, started to get out. "Wh«re you think you're going?" Jim looked at her in turprisc. "Why, in to see Nancy." "Wait a minute. You can't see her looking like you do. And I have a message for you." * "From Nancy?" "No. From Mark Richards. He Iphoned. Said to tell you Jones .was ablt to identify the money. And that apparently Mansfield had used hi* kitchen garbage can a» tht 'basktt' which went up and down tht hill on the phone wire. At Itast, he said both Mansfield's and Eddie Stone's orints were inside the r :•> Doe* that mean anything to .you?"" w Jm aodfed. to ftii* a yawn. He turned the rear-vi»v mirror so he could see his face. He felt even worse then. His swollen eye was already beginning to take on rainbow colors. He rubbed a streak of grease off his cheek without adding much to his appearance, since he could not so easily rid himself of the heavy stubble of his beard. **I see what you mean. I suppose it would b* better if I cleaned up before I tried to see Nancy." Mary Holt had changed her mind. "You ought to have the courage of your convictions. Of course you'll see Nancy right now! Cleaned up, I don't think you'd have a chance. The way you are, I don't think she'll be able to restrain her curiosity. She may talk to you." Jim Dunn did not stop to think or plan. He got out of the car, started up the walk toward the front door. He thought he saw one of the living-room curtains twitch, From behind him, Mary Holt called, "Good luck, Jim. You'll need it" • * • TT was Nancy Drover's face, and Nancy's body, yet the woman who opened the door for Jim was still the remote stranger. She blocked the doorway, did not invite Jim insidt. "I've been told you saved a man's life yesterday afternoon. By a transfusion." "Yes," Jim said. "I'm told you caught your man, though I suppose I would have known that anyway, since you're finally here." "Yes." "You've found out who killed my father, and why?" "Y«. Your father was tilled through an agent, you might say. And through sheer chance which put your father in the right place when s prosperous - appearing victim was needed." did not Mk dttetft. Seu»- that frightened Jim, made him feel for the first time that his errand this morning was of no earthly use. "And now, I suppose you're satisfied?" the stranger-Nancy demanded. Jim did not answer that question. He realized any satisfaction he might have in a solution of this problem rested on a decision Nancy would make. **I want something from you, Nancy. I want you to come with me for a short while." "Why should I?" "You may not be able to forgive me," Jim Dunn said. "But at least I want you to understand." She stared into hie face, showed the first signs of curiosity. "Whet happened to you?" "A fight," Jim said. "A little mistake. Will you come with me, Nancy?" • • • CHE hesitated, and Jim held his *^ breath until at last she nodded. She moved stiffly down the walk with him, got in the front seat of- the car, sat motionless until he had gone around and was in beside her. "Could I have a cijaret?" she asked then. He lit one for her and one for himself, started the motor. A* he drove away he looked in the rear-view mirror. Old Mary Holt had reappeared from somewhere, her arms were raised and her hands clasped as she made the sign of victory and good luck. Jim waited for Nancy to ask where they were going. She said no word during the drive which ended In front of the home of Chief Hughes. She said nothing as they walked to the front door, was silent as he rang the bell. Mrs. Hughes opened the door. 'Come in," she invited. "I'm just about ready for you, Mr. Dunn." She saw Nancy then and her eyebrows raised in surprise. 'And Miss Drover." Her face moved in a spasm of pain. "I suppose you're representing the press? Well, I—come on in." She held the door open for them to enter. AWFULLY JOLLY MAVIM6 A eo WITW YOU.'
