"A real mess," Mrs. Cushman said with considerable satisfaction. Cleaning up a real mess was more enjoyable than cleaning up a half mess, since the results were more startling. 'I thought Rose had given up this room," Dalloway said. •She did." "It seems odd that she'd leave so much stuff behind, especially clothing. I understood she was broke." "Couldn't be^broker. She was always behind in her rent. 1m- j practical. Rose was—not wish- ling to speak ill of the dead, but ithat's the-honest truth." "When did she decide to leave? iDid she give you any notice?" "Not a minute's notice. Mon- fday at lunch time she comes in, i hands me the money she owed 'me, and says she's leaving to take • a job out of town. Inside of 20 .minutes she was gone, taking just that one suitcase with her best clothes in it. Gone like, that." Mrs. Cushman snapped her fingers. "Of course I knew she was up tc something because of the maps." "What maps?. 1 don't sec any." "She must of took them with her. She had a lot of maps that she'd marked names and dates on with a pencil" "Can you recall any of them?" "Phil was one. And Baker, I remember that because it was uy maiden oam*. Mow let mt "8 tr >fat"l "*"• IM Mr imiliini I oM . »*. DMrMM kf MSA hnk* think a minute, don't rush me." Dalloway went over to the bureau and picked up a pressed rose while Mrs. Cushman thought a minute. ,. "Paul. That's another," she said finally. "And Byron. Or Bernard, was it? Yes, it was Bernard." "Any women's names?" * • • «T CAN'T recall any, but 1 think there was. Yes", I'm sure there was. Millie or Minnie, something like that." "And a date beside each name?" "Yes." "What did you make ol it?" "I just figured she was making up a birthday list and didn't have anything else to write on. Isn't that reasonable?" s "It might be, if Rose had developed into the type of person who remembered anyone else's Birthday." "Rose could be very thoughtful at times," Mrs. Cushman said cautiously. "She gave me a nice Christmas present last year, five pounds of caramels. I thought that was real nice of her, considering she couldn't chew caramels herself on account of her dentures. She could have given me peppermint patties and eaten hall of them herself." Dalloway began to circle tne room, looking at everything but not touching anything except the pressed flower he had taken off the bureau. Hit feelings ibout Rose were stronger here In this room than they had been at the [uneral. He was depressed by the sordid litter of stuff she had left behind her. and Impatient at Rose herself. How like her to make a birthday list on a map (and that's all it was, probably) ;md then go oft and die in somebody's garden. She had no seme of propriety, never had h»d my. "Did she ever mention any of thost people tc you—Minnie, Baker, Bernard, and so on?" Dal- loway asked. "She knew a Minnie that's a checker at the supermarket, but only in the line of business. Not likely she'd concern herself with that Minnie's birthday." "It doesn't seem so." "As for Phil, there's a Phil Dickerson lives over on Bagnos Street, but he's just a boy going to high school, delivers for Fred's Drugstore on the side. I don't know any Bakers or Bernards. 1 think all those people were people she knew a long time ago, not ones she was associating with in the here and now. They were figures; from her past, in my opinion. And there's only one person that Rose ever let down her real back hair in front of, and that's Frank Clyde. You'd better talk to him," CLYDE went to his office to pick up the file on Rose after Dalloway phoned. He found his wife, Miriam, a pretty, dark-haired young woman with a demure smile, chatting with Dallpway when he returned. Frank shook hands. "The report isn't complete. It's only the information Rose volunteered, plus some of my interpretations. 1 don't think there was anything wrong with her mentally. You're mentioned in it," "In a favorable or unfavorable light?" Frank seemed uncomfortable. "Well, you know Rose. She suffered a great many guilt feelings after abandoning you and the child. In order to tolerate these feelings, she had to convince herself you were quite the villain." "Any references to those names I told you .bout that she'd written on._the map?" "Two."'Frank untied Ihe tapes on the manila folder. "Phil and Bernard. Phil was the name of her last husband, Philip Ledcr- man. He was killed In a sailing accident a few years f>K°. He was alone at the time, there was no suspicion of foul play." "And Bernard?" "Bernard," Frank Mid dryly, "was a Pekingese." (T« Be ContUiueil) Television— Tonite, Tomorrow WMCT, Memphis.
