But finally, when she had gotten into her bnlhing suit, she could no longer wait. She rupporl the blotted pngo for Monday in her hand, went over to the door, and began very slowly and carefully to open it out. only a millimeter at 11 time, her aim shaking with the tenseness of not jerking the door; and when she had gotten it two or three inches open she looked cautiously oui through the crnck. Paul hud gone much farther nut. and was still swimming | the air blow through. The louver slats slanted down from the in- fide, so that no one could see in, but that from' inside looking down the slant she could sec three or four feel of the sand around th/> building. She straightened up and went over toward the clothes hanging on the door. Something outside the louvers caught her eye, and she stopped and looked out. Rex was standing just outside, watching the building, panting, wagging his tail,, and mailing for her to como out. She hissed at him, "Go away.' Get away from here!" She glanced out through the slanting louvers and did not set? away from her. She could see the i Rex. He must have gone away; back of his dark head i ising and j that was lucky, in any case. She was holding the trousers. She dug her hand into the pockets. She thought: But it's got to be here someplace. It's got to be! But she had looked every place, She turned around, making suro falling in the water with each stroke he took. She darted outside, forcing herself along just as she would have forced herself into a cold shower, pushed the door closed behind her with one hand, raced across the stretch of beach to the other bathhouse, and pulled at the door handle. The dressing room was just like the one she had left, a simple V If ' 11 You, the Merchant... You advertise. Why? To talk with people about your merchandise?

Her expression in the reflection was so (bi^tfiod that she c/ould almost smile at it. She did smile experimentally; then she stuck out her tongue at herself; and at that second she though incoherently. The mirror the blot She held it up to the mirror, In Ihe icflection the blot began to corigeal into one word. It was on the line for two o'clock. Then it must hnve been a two-o'clock appointment. That was about the time when her mother had gono swimming. She couldn't q u i t c make out the letters, though. It looked like a capital S. Yes, S., . . . or was it a W? Then there was a smudge; she couldn't make anything out of that, And then another w? Or was it m? And then there was a long smudge, nnd at the end it looked like . . .ng. She looked thoughtfully away from the mirror, and then back to it. What could that spell? 2:00 answer oven before she understood it or admitted it to herself Sw-m-ng. Swimming. Paul had gone swimming at two o'clock on the afternoon her mother Was drowned! But he hadn't gone swimming. He'd been out in the car . most of the afternoon. He'd said so to everyone. But then why had he renlsy been , swimming? Had he been there when her mother Wns drowning? But if he had ... if ho had . . . then . . . Her eyes drifted down to thi louvers. Just outside, not six inches awny on the other side.- stood two long, brown, muscular legs, with black hair twining on thp.m, immobile as the legs of. n statue, the toes dug into the sand, waiting. Waiting and listening to her breathing, to the beating of her heart. He was close enough to her that she could almost ,Ceel his breath on her face. The legs did not move. They just stood there, waiting, waiting. She had walked into a trap. Then, distantly in the back of her. ears, she heard 'something. — Sw-m-ng , , . She knew the'| Her mind had .been wallowing in Hollis, 33, and iby Missouri or John Francis Rifney, 47, but neither has yet beeh relumed to Arkansas, The second case was reffored { lo the Grand Jury by North Little j i Rock Municipal Court, whore Capt. Duane Rosenkjar. 33, of the Little Rock Air Force Base was charged with murder in the death of Leslie B. Qann,34. Gann was killed last May 28 at| the Rosenkjar home. The captain told police that he returned ho:«fe the horrible silence, and something had come through to her. She straightened up a little, let go of the doorknob, and listened intently, trying to isolate what the { sound was. It was very far .away, though the rushing of the waves! it was a very faint hum in the distance. Someone had pushed a button in the house and the long glass panels were sliding open. Someone was coming out onto the terrace. Maybe, it was AunJ Millicent. Maybe she had returned -from town. Maybe she would como down to the.beach. Paul wouldn't dare do anything with someone else around. (To Be Continued) (Copyright 1957 by Rinehart & Company, Inc.)
