But this crack of Jimmy's sounded as if the shoe were on the other foot. It had all the earmarks of N jealousy. "What's the matter, Jimmy? Did she throw you over for someone murmured 'something else?" Jimmy ...- that sounded like ' "nuts."' He pressed his foot down on the. accelerator and the speedometer registered fifty when we were stopped by the next red light. ""The trouble is," he said violently, "she doesn't date anybody. Has "some freak idea that men would interfere with her career --and nothing is to interfere with that. The girl's career mad." "That's the wrong attitude," 1 agreed. "How can she act life if she doesn't live it first?" Jimmy hedged. "She's not altogether to blame for it. It's her mother. She's had Madge m dramatic school and little theater companies ever since she was able to walk and talk. Getting her ready to be a great star. It's all Madge has ever known." I was still curious.

And so, I thought, he had gone fcr Avis Vaughn on the rebound. And I could imagine Avis, for all her preoccupation with Art, still finding time to lead Jimmy on. "Why don't you try again.'" i said suddenly. "Madge may feel differently about it now. And 1 wouldn't wait too long either. If she's the hit I think she's going to be in this picture you'll have a lot of competition." Jimmy looked at me and grinned. "What are you trying to do, play Cupid?" He grinned some more. "At that it might not be a bad idea.'' , , . . , The funny thing, looking back now, is how closely. I came to the motive for our 'murders in that talk with Jimmy-Peters.

He said that if the three unions recened a better wage settlement than the oliiers which already have settled, the others would make further demands.

Jimmy let me out at my drive- v.ay and I said goodby to him and went into a transformed bouse. Heaven knows where Marie/ my new maid, had learned he art " of homemaking. But omehow, somewhere she had. The place had been cleaned and waxed -md dusted from top to bottom; every chair, every cushion, every magazine was invitingly in place; the windows were open to the afternoon breeze; the taffeta drapes rustled luxuriously. Contentment filled me like honey-drowsy bee. For just a moment I forgot the nagging worries of the present and let myself drift into a rosy dream of a suddenly tantalizing future. I had this "lovely home. I had a promising-career. I could have Jeff Haverson, now that he was free. He hal made that clear. Life could be beautiful after all, I thought, as naively as if I were still sixteen. The raucous voice of Mane Maloney broke it up by announcing that dinner was ready. I stepped oif my dream train, made a little face of regret, picked up the days mail that was piled on my desk, took it downstairs with me and lead it while I ate. The front doorbell, above, chimed just as I finished the iced fruit dessert and Marie came back from answering] it and announced Detective Robert Leiphan. » 4 * He was waiting for me in the living room. He wore the same dark suit he had worn the day I first saw him, he held the same battered gray hat in his hands, and he looked at me with the same cool gray eyes.

His voice was brusque in spite of his words. HCj went on. "We're finding it ncces- sarv to check further on the people who were here at your house the n;ght Avis Vaughn and Art Clcyes died. On everyone, you understand." His eyes were on my face. -Miss Donn, you were in a sanitarium just bciorc you came out here to Hollywood. A scnous nervous breakdown, I was told. What caused it--overwork? Or something that happened to you. The perspiration poured out on the palms of my hands. I clenched them tightly trying to hold on to mv sell-control through sheer muscular effort. I had never to l| anvonc about that--anyone at all.. The only person in Hollywood who could have known about u was Jeff Havcrson. Max Hostcr hid told him. Told him because he wanted someone to know, , wanted someone to watch out lor i me, I suppose, just in case I went {haywire again. i And Jcfl--Jeff had told the po- 1 lice. · (To Be Continued) Mrs. Harper was in the kitchen at the time the stove exploded. She was knocked to the floor by the blast and received a shoulder injury. - Two neighbors, Fred Lancaster and Frank Rister. were injured and burned in fighting the fire. SAFE AT HOME?

Notice to Our Telephone Customers in Saline and Gallatin Counties You 1m c no doubt noticed that the new telephone directories that vcrc icccnlly distributed arc quilc different in design than tho^c formerly used. The change was made in an effort to increase the value of the directory to you and make it easier for jou to look up numbers you wish to call. The major change imohcd the listing of all subscribers at all exchanges included in the directory in one alphabetical sequence. This is especially helpful in looking up the number of a subscriber vlicn there is some doubt as to the oHicc from which he reci\cs service. You «ill note lhat each telephone number is prefixed by an -abbreviation indicating the name of the telephone office involved and in some cases the word "county has been added to the prefix When calling a county subscriber in our own exchange, it is necessary that you ask for the county operator. If the customer you arc calling is in another exchange, the call should be placed as heretofore by asking for the other exchange or long distance. In order to obtain a number that is not listed in the directory, please ask for information as heretofore.
