This would limit suspicion to the three survivors of the party--Jeff, Liz and me. After Jeff leaves, I remember the packet of poison. I look for it frantically. It is gone. XIX I was in the midst of searching the house for the poison when Marie Maloney turned up. Jeil had talked to her over the telephone after he left my place and when he explained the set-up to her (one woman living alone, not much cooking and not many parties) she had jumped at the chance to work for me. She had piled all her worldly belongings into a taxicab and come right over to my place--not wanting. I suspect, to spend another night in that apartment of Avis Vaughn's. Marie was about thirty with a ALLEY OOP It's All Upside-IDown^ WWA.T'6 broad Irish face. As a girl she must have been very pretty: I read later in the newspaper!, that she had once played in pictures. Bit parts. She still had blue-black hair and eyes of an amazing blue. And a lurid taste in clothes. But any sort of maid was to be regarded" as manna from heaven and so 1 showed her to the maid's room across the patio from the kitchen without any further ado. \Vhcn next I saw her she was turned out neatly in a black uniform with a crisp white apron and cap. Bv that time I had finished searching the house and hadn't i found any trace of the packet oil poison, la the kitchen--where II looked first, in the living room, the guest room, my own room or either of the bathrooms.

I *re-read what I had written^ It was pretty unsatisfactory In disgust I tore the paper to shreds, and went to bed and tossed mseL, to sleep between sheets that were as comfortable as a bed of stinging · nettles. , _ | When I awoke the next morning, the weight of the world had lifted from my shoulders. I felt foolish and relieved. During the night, my subconscious had, figured out what had happened! to that little unmarked packet of, ! ' T °i S hadn't put it back in the dress- 1 ing table after I used some for the cat and Consuelo had found it when she was giving my house a lick and a promise on her last visit and had simply thrown it out with the trash. S S= * My car wouldn't start that day. The starter sang a little song when I put my foot on it ana wouldn't turn the motor over. I 1 happened to think of Jimmy Peters ! and went back into the house and called him. He hadn't started for . the studio and he said he'd stop by J and pick me up. , · It was the first time I nad seen Jimmy since the night of the trag- 1 edy. "He looked fine with a ruddy ( healthy glow of color in his fresh- j l y shaved face and his blue eyes' ' were clear and untroubled. ! \Ve talked a little bit about t the funeral-- and the write-ups in lhe| ! newspapers. "When he let me out! !at the studio parking lot. he said he'd take me home that e\enmg if, I'd wait for him. , Jeff and Ben Morgan were in . conference all morning. Then they J gave Madge Karney a flock of i screen tests and w hen they were ready Jeff called me and asked if I'd like to see them. too. ,· They were swell.
