Estimates Free PH 3-4iei I XXX ;r PHE first intimation of the col- . lective insanity that was to r affect the whole state within a matter of weeks came the next morning when Daggett refused ito be shaved. "I'll do as I please," Daggett ^snapped, but he was a trifle ruf- ifled. "If we are going to put this )idea over we've got to do it right. ,;Atmosphere! That's the thing '.that counts." Hannah knocked on the door, bringing Daggett's breakfast on a tray. In a few moments Rupert .and Kirby joined them. Like men facing graver issues, •they were united on their goal fbut divided on the best means jof reaching it, and they were all rvociferous, , "Now then," Greg began, when /b« had collected all eyes and ''their respectful attention, "let's 'use our heads about this. So far ( all we've had is yakety-yak. The ridea is to revive this ghost town iso it will attract the tourist trade. 'Right?" j They agreed. i "First, we prepare the ground." (He opened a notebook flat on the (table and the old man, incorrigibly curious, leaned forward • and saw that the pages were 'filled with meticulous lists, each junder its proper heading. "This will give you a general idea of what has to be accomplished. We'll have to put up some more log cabins or their equivalent to handle the tourists who come to stay. That means getting in carpenters and building supplies pronlo. I'll take that over. Next, we need cooks and.waitresses for the restaurant, maids for the hotel, and a lot of supplies, dishes and glasses and kettles and stuff. Hannah, that's your department. "We'll have to get hold of some appropriate western souvenirs to sell. Mr. Daggett, you'll probably find a manufacturer in New Jersey to turn them out for you. And wt ought to get hold of some old-timer to sell them. Someone who is authentically phony. Then we'll need entertainers. Rupert, that's your forte." He paused for a moment, wrinkling his brow and looking so young and solemn and cocksure that Hannah's heart turned over with tenderness. "But how," she asked, "are you going to get people to come?" Daggett spoke up. "Kirby," he said firmly, "is our publicity man. He'll get us an audience if he has to carry them in one at a time on his own back." "That," Kirby said flatly, "is blackmail." * * * "TJEFORE you bring out any complaints, you have to remember that at this point you are the man who killed Santa Claus, who destroyed a popular illusion. You've got to rehabilitate yourself. "There's no point in staging a comeback, you know," Daggett told him, "until you have succeeded in rebuilding your popularity. You can't go through the rest of your life with amnesia. You've got to remember sooner or later who you are and then—" Kirby was wary. "And then what?" "Do something about that poor woman—the widow of the man who shot himself." 'How? Marry the gal?" , 'You are not in the groove," Rupert told him. "This Js what happened: Knowing you were unable to continue your work because of your general unattractiveness, your slow .mind, your total lack of charm, your Ineffectual masculinity—" he ignored Kirby's anguished yelp of protest—"you lost your memory. There is a blank. When you remember who you are you find yourself at Dead Man's Gulch. You say to yourself, 'I must find that woman.'" "Then/ 1 put In Hannah, getting into the spirit of the thing, "you bring her here and she lives happily ever after." Daggett was furious. "You are leaving me out. I found Kirby. I realized that, in spite of his unprepossessing manner, he had a heart of gold, particularly when I discovered that he had arranged an annuity for Perkins* widow. So I asked him to aol as master of ceremonies lor the Grand Opening—and, we've got a rn^lion dollars' worth of publicity." "Then what?" Kirby had his back to the wall. "Then," Daggett said suavely, "Horace Grain snaps you up as master of ceremonies for his new television program." "So Jar," Kirby pointed out, "Horace Grain hasn't got a television program." • * • "T OOK," Greg said, "you're all nuts7T3o you think for a single moment that anyone is going to believe a trumped-up story like that? Believe Kirby really had amnesia and drifted out here?" "Well, now, I'm not so sure," Daggett said thoughtfully. "It's the kind of story people like to believe, which is half the battle. And it kills two birds with one stone." Kirby was down but not out. "And there's another thing. All right, I made, a mistake about Perkins. I'll look after his wife. But the 'poor girl' stuff I don't take. She's a shrew if there ever was one. So let's drop her pathos, shall we? I'll carry her weight until I die and maybe that's fair enough. But that's as far as I go. 1 still say you are basing everything on persuading Mr. Grain to buy this folklore program, starting with the opening of Dead Man's Gulch. It's got the ingredients for a show, but you haven't any reason whatsoever for thinking he will buy it." "That," Daggetl said, "is up to Greg." "If I told my stepfather our idea, he'd laugh at it," Greg said, "but if he thought he was putting something over, he'd jump at it."
