VII E VEN in bed, Mrs. Goodfteld wore her jewels—diamonds and rubles on her fingers, a bracelet that tinkled, and pearl earrings that matched the pallor of her small delicate ears. "A policeman, eh?" she said to Captain Greer. "I suppose Willett went through a red light. He never could -handle a car. It handles him. Murphy, you may leave." Murphy departed with an elegant shrug. "Impossible, ain't she?" the old lady said cheerfully. "Lots of people think I'm impossible, but I don't agree. Did you ever play baseball?" "Shortstop on the high school team." "Seems to me you're built more like a catcher. You got heavy legs." . "Heavy enough." I "You should have been a .catcher. But I don't suppose you came up here to talk baseball, •did you?" j "No." I "Well, now it's your turn to [ say something. I talk a Tot, but jl'm very fair about giving the 1 other fellow his chance." "You've been told what happened yesterday morning?" She nodded. "Rose French was found dead in my back yard. It made Willett nervous." "Did you know Rose?" "I did not. r^ut I used to go to her pictures. Never considered her much of an actress, myself." She thumped one of the pillows to emphasize her noint.' "How about your son?" "I'v« ncvtr allowtd WilltU to 1 trnt* Hnx. he. NorihM IT NU Smc*. have any truck with actresses, 1 she said with severity. "When the time came for Willett to spread his wings, I picked out Ethel. Good, sturdy stock, Ethel. Don't let those wispy airs confuse you. She's strong as a horse. I explained all about actresses to Willett when he was 18." . The old lady grinned and stroked her rings. She was having a wonderful time. "Would you mind telling me, Mrs. Goodfield, how Willett makes a living?" "By agreeing with me. That's how he makes a living." "Could you be more specific?" "I have no interest in business details. Why don't you ask Willett or Ethel?" "All right, I will," Greer said, and took a hesitant step toward the door. "I promised not to stay too long and disturb you." "Disturb me?" She propped herself up on one elbow and repeated, "Don't they realize I'm lonely? I like to talk to people." Why don't you sit down for a minute and we'll talk about baseball?" "Another time, This morning I have work to do." ATRS. GOODFIELD flung herself back among the pillows like a petulant child. "You won't come back. You think I'm on old crank. But I'm not. It'i just that I've had 10 many dli- appointments. My children were the worst. First Willett, then Jack and then Shirley They'll never amount to anything, not one ol them. Jack's a party boy. always the extra man at dinnert and cocktail parties. Makci quite a fool of himself, falling all over other 'men's wives. You know the kind?" "Yes." "And Shirley, poor firl, «he got married very young to a schoolteacher. He died of a stroke two years ago, leaving Shirley with [ dcrstand. added almost reverently, "Our little factory has kept us all out of the poorhouse so far." "What do you mean, so far?" "Things can happen, especially after I'm gone. Did Willett tell you.I'm supposed to be dying?" "Not exactly." "Supposed to be, but I'm not sure I'm going to. Not till after the World Series anyway. Know any bookies in townJ Maybe if 1 take up betting on the horses, it would give me another hobby besides baseball." "Officially there are no bookies in town." "And unofficially?" "I'll see what "can be done." Greer departed with the strong conviction that he had been hogtied by an expert. 'THE following morning, Thursday, at 9 a. m. » coroner's inquest was held to determine the cause of death of Rose Elizabeth French, a human being. Mrs. Cushman, the landlady, dressed elegantly for .the occasion In flowered chiffon, identified the body. Dr. Severn read his detailed report of the autopsy and Ortega In a hushed voice described how he set out to plant larkspur Tuesday morning and found the body. Sheriff Angell doubled as coroner. "Did you touch her, Mr. Ortega?" "No, sir. I had this flat of larkspur in my hands. I had my hands full." "What did you do?" < "1 run up to the house and told that man what I found." Ortega pointed at Willett. sitting in the second row. Everybody turned to stare at Willett, who tried to appear less visible by slumping in his seat. Noticing this, one juror made a mental note to watch Willett for further signs of guilt. "Think back to Monday," Anjell said to Ortega. "My reasons will become clear in a moment." A male juror raised his hand and said he would like the reasons to be made clear right away. He was having trouble following the witness who wouldn't speak plain English a man could un- Television— Tonite, Tomorrow WMCT. Memphis.
