The burly driver turned a knob and twin beams leaped out ahead of (tie speeding truck. "Whereabouts you want to go this time?" he asked wearily. "Any place there's a phone," John Henry said, feeling a bil embarrassed. He wished Ihey hadn't flagged the same truck and trailer that had given him a lift earlier in the day. "Drive-in up here has one." "That'll be swell." The driver cased down on the brake pedal near a big neon sign that alternately flashed THE TOMAHAWK in red and then DRIVE INN in blue. John Henry jumped down from the high cab and held up an assisting hand to Sin. She gingerly came to earth "Thanks for the lift," John Henry called up. The driver nodded as the truck pulled away. "Gosh, am,I,glad to see peopli again," Sin. burbled happily. "Jus plain old unarmed people!" "I'll bet that driver thinks I'm nuta." "Forget him, honey. We're jus five minutes away from the police Then -we'll be all right. I feel lik hugging Lieutenant Lay." The phone booth was inside anu at the far end of the counter. The room was almost deserted. Th girl behinci the counter whistled a she concocted a chocolate malt The solitary customer was a pom pous-looking man in his fifties who .-., reading a newspaper near the hone booth and munching absent- nindedly on a double-deck ham- urger. As the Conovers came in, e gulped down the last bile, ropped a coin by his plate and queezed by them. John Henry pulled the folding oor to the booth open and said, I guesi you just ask for the po: :e." "That's what it always says In he front of the phone book." Sin at down at the counter next to he telephone booth and ordered wo hamburgers—Vwith every- hing!" Then she reached out a lat'e arm and scooped up the icwspaper the departed customer had been reading. * * • JOHN HENRY folded the door ~ shut behind him and got com- 'ortable on the .built-in stool. He ook the receiver off the hook. He listened for the buzz of the clear wire. He dropped the coin inlo the proper glo*. There was a sudden banging on the glass by his head and he reared back, startled. Sin was hammering one small flst against the pan and pointing to the newspaper. "Operator," a precise voice sai€ in his ear. Sin was pointing to the top o the newspaper where it saic EXTRA! in red ink. She shook he head furiously at him. "Operator," the voice said agatn "Wrong number," John Henry answered mechanically and re placed the receiver. He pushec open the door, asking irritably "What's wrong, Sin?" "You didn't get the police, d you?" Sin grabbed his shoulde Her face was white and strainer "Not yet Why?" "Johnny—look at that!" Her pointing finger tremble over the front page of the news paper.
