The daughter, Maria Jesus Yolanda Escobar* heiress to a 1,000,000 peso fortune, allegedly was kid- naped a month affa by the five Moran brothers, one of whom wanted to marry her. Nazario Moran, Sr., 73, father of the brothers, was arrested for the kidnaping and Senora Consuelo Capaceta, mother of Maria, said it was common talk around the port of Mazatlan that the brothers had killed the girl m reprisal for the elder Moran's arrest.

Fearing that radiations might endanger public health, hospital and civic officials called in physicists who. by means of a detector of radio active substances and xray equipment, traced the radium to the liny slug in a dump F quarter of a mile long, 20 feet wide and 12 feet deep. THE STORY: Jimmy Peters is at the scene of the accident. He appears ill. Art Cleves, who was with Avis, has also been killed. I lake Jimmy back to my house, lix coffee for him. phone Jeff who comes over. The doorbell rings. It s lhe police. XIV It was vast routine with the police that "night. They had learned from Avis' maid that she and Art had spent the evening al my place and. as a matter-of-course, they were checking on their last movements.. One of the officers began lo ask me questions. Jeff stepped forward. "I'll handle Ihis," he said to me. But -the police had a different idea. "If you don't mind, we'll ask her the questions," the officer who seemed to be in charge said. So I gave thrjm a resume of the evening eliding with:' "Miss Vaughn and Mr. Cleves left here together. right after—I mean soon after Mr. Haverson and Mr. Leyden drove away." • . The policeman caught my slip. You were going to say they left right awav. What made you change- your mind?" After all there was no reason to hide it. "I was just trying to be accurate. They left the house immediately after Mr. Haverson and Mr. Leyden and I thought they drove, away. But "later, maybe ten minutes or fifteen, I really don't know for I wasn't paying any attention to the time—I heard their car start. I was standing at the window," I pointed to lhe big window at the end of the room. "I looked down, thon. and saw them drive away." didn't so over that canyon wall in an ordinary, accidental way. . . . Ho drove that car over with the accelerator pushed lo the floor. It's still stuck there. Now. it doesn't seem likely that a man who was sober wo.ild start down that steep hill, knowing, that sharp curve was there, with his throttle wide open does it?" "He •wouldn't," Jeff said hoarsely. "Drunk or sober. Art wouldn't have driven down that hill out there that way. It's loo sleep. The accelerator they probably got stuck plunged into the can- Suggestions Shop at Rcphans for all on your Christmas list. Gifts that will please anyone at prices you'll like. Come in now., when yon." "No, Jeff." T cut in. "I talked to a woman who was in a car coming uo the hill and who sav-- them go over. She said Art was driving like mad. . . T couldn't understand it, either." I turned to the policeman. I said emphatically and angrily with some idea lhat T had to defend the honor of a man who was dead and who couldn't speak for himself—although earlier it wouldn't have occurred to me that poor Art had 'much honor to defend—"I'm sure Mr. Cleves wasn't drunk. You see. we had coffee Vjst a short time before they left. We all drank some—except Avis. Art' drank two cups. Ho was perfectly sober when he said good night to me."

"You had a lot to drink here this evening, didn't you?" "We had some highballs—prob- aby three apiece." He whistled impudently and I got mad. "I'm sorry to disappoint, if you're trying to make this out a Holywood drinking orgy. You see. we wore working. There had been a change made in the casting of the niclure Miss Vaughn was going to star in, and Mr. Leyden and I had to do a little rewriting on the script. We had to have her approval on it and Mr. Haverson's. That's why we all met here." "Nice work—if you can get it," the reporter commented. Mr. and Mrs. Scott DeLee and little daughter.

Hospital Notes Branch Admitted: Mrs. Lloyd Brazile, Nashville. Jeff's face turned red. "Cut out the smart stuff—Miss Donn told you the truth. She drank as much as anyone here, and she isn't drunk is she?" The policeman—the big one—in- Lervenod. "Take it easy now—take it easy, everybody. We just want the facts—they might explain what, happened. You see, Mr. Cleves "Something could- have gone wrong with his car, you know," Jeff said belligerently. The big policeman ran a thoughtful hand up along the bristling, grayish whiskers on his stubborn law. "It could have been something Ime lhat." he admitted. That ended it. The police and the reporters left after gelling my name, the details of the picture that had been the cause of our conference thai night and a list of everyone who had been there. Jeff left, loo, wilh a patheHc remark about having to make the funeral arrangements—for Avis. I felt terribly sorry for Jeff at that moment. He looked absolutely sunk. I don't suppose it was the fact that Avis was dead that shocked him. but rather the ugly horror of lhat way of dying. Jimmy shoved off at the same time as Jeff, and I was left alone. I didn't want to be left alone. 11 remembered the night before and l.he horror thai had haunted me. Surely tonight would be worse. Wrecked cars and bloody bodies were already spinning like pinwheels before my eyes. There was nothing to drink in the bar. I knew. I had already ooked,there for something for Jimmy. In desperation I went down to ;he kitchen and rummaged unlil I [ound a half filled bottle of Hour- son. I had never been actually drunk in my life. I had never been' under the lable. But I wanted to- be that night. I wanted to be so far under that I'd never remember a :thing' that had happened. I poured a water glass nearly full o|.the ancient betrayer of the virtue, of'women and the ambition of man.. i; And drank it straight.' It pii't me to sleep all right.
