MONDAY, DECEMBER 2, 1963 THE REGISTER-NEWS — MT. VERNON, ILLINOIS The NIGHT, The WOMAN Bf Stephen Ransom* Copyright © 1M2,]«3 by Stephen Kimome OlitribnCed by Newipaper Enterprise Asm. XXV Blake tried the knob: it turned, but the door was locked. He knocked a third time, loudly. Still nothing — until a voice spoke unexpectedly from his left. "You're bruisin' your knuckles for nothin', brother." niake turned his head and saw a man standing outside the open door of the office. He Jean," and he wagged a hand. I can't. I have to know why." Now her eyes, still on Blake, were a little frightened. "Todd wanted mo to tell Lieutenant Barcello ... if he asked . . . that I was with you here for an hour or so last night. thai She knew he was concealing ^l' 1 * )™ n „ tchd ™? ll™L ihn iTicthing P _.. around 11 o'clock ... a id something her, that he was somehow seriously entangled in this murder case. He wondered if Barcello had questioned her and disturbed her even more. "Fix yourself a drink, kid," Todd suggested — too cordially, Blake thought—"and join the party. The judge is in bed and asleep. Ruth is still across the street. Jean and I have both was scarecrow-skinny and bald, been feeling neglected. She's He was chewing on a dead cigar and his face was scowling. "You mean Murdock's not in?" Blake asked. "Oh, he's there all right. He's there most of the time, except when he heads over to the liq- our store and right back. What I mean to tell you, that man likes his bottle. He does this every night—skips dinner and gets himself stoned, real early. Friend of his?" "That's right. He won't mind if I wake him up." "What I mean to tell you is, he's knocked himself out, but good. He'll prob'ly wake up and slug himself again a couple of hours from now, but he wouldn't be in shape to receive visitors, know what I mean? Better try again tomorrow, around noon, bc- brothcr, say fore he gets started." "Thanks." Blake left for home. The little red MG sitting out of the way in a corner of the driveway belonged to Jean. He went in and found Jean sitting in the living room opposite Todd, both with highballs close at hand. She greeted him silently, her brown eyes rounded as if startled. been waiting for you for two hours." "Almost two and a half," Jean said quietly. "Sorry, I didn't expect you. I've been working, making up the time I lost today." It was true as far as it went. On his way back from West Fernanda Beach he had stopped in at his office and had spent more than two hours at his desk, part of it at paper work, most of it in a fruitless effort to think his way past the obstacles that kept balking him He went into the kitchen with the uneasy feeling that Jean's quietness meant she had somehow grown more uncertain of him. When he came back with a bourbon on the rocks she again gazed at him as if trying to puzzle out a side of him she had never seen before. "What's wrong, Jean? Has Barcello been working you over?" "No but . . . that brings something up. Todd and I have been talking about you . . . and he made a suggestion that struck me as being pretty strange." around 11 o'clock talked with you.'' Blake turned a frown on his brother. "That wasn't smart. I' was presumptuous. If you'< mentioned it to me first I\ have said certainly not." Todd was quick to defend the idea he had already discounted. "It would be no harm. A statement like that from Jean would stand up. Barcello has no way of checking on her." "You can't be certain of that. He might find a hole In it. Then |Jean would get hurt—and the whole thing would backfire." "It's worth the risk. You need it." Not we! You! — in Jean's hearing. Todd said quickly. "Just an idea off the top of my head, "As you said at the beginning, Todd, forget it. I hope Jean will." They stared at each other in anger as Jean spoke again. "But why, Blake? Why should I need to lie?" Todd got in a quick answer. JVe'vc already accounted for ourselves. But it's a case of one (brother sticking up for another, and Barcello's taking it with a pinch of salt. That's all." "Is it, Blake? I still don't understand. Why should you have to account for yourself in the place?" Blake wondered why he didn't get up and hit that hypocritical face of Todd's. "It's because Lee overheard Val's outburst in the office. She used the words 'swindle' and 'pull the roof down.' Ho believes she was threatening me. Of course she wasn't, but he just won't let go."

South did not really defend his two spade bid except, to point out that it had told North what to lead against West's three club contract and a spade lead would leave West somewhere between a rock and a hard place when it came to making three clubs. Furthermore South felt that the only excuse North had for going to three spades was that North wanted to make his opponents happy. The matter was referred to me as arbiter and it seems worthy of comment in this column. When someone goes down 1100 the chances are that both partners overbid, 'fids was true here. South took his life in his hands when he bid two spades, but as South pointed out, his hid worked! No one doubled two spades. Instead West went to three clubs and North could have passed, led a spade and set the hand one or maybe two tricks. How about North? His takeout double was all right, but when Eouth could not bid over East's one heart North had no excuse for any further bid. Not only was South marked with a had hand, but in addition East's one heart hid had reduced ihe value of North's queen ol hearts from two points to zero and without those two points North did not have a takeout double. So there was no excuse for North's three spade bid and the loss was due entirely to him. LEGAL NOTICES )SS. ) STATE OF ILLINOIS COUNTY OF JEFFKRSON In the Circuit Court of Jefferson County, Illinois.
