stitute reading matter which
might interest the readers of this
column this week I'm going

You Are The Detective
The articles taken from the
dead man's pockets lie on the ta
ble in front of you a wallet con
taining 67 dollars, a package of
cigarettes containing 15 smokes,
a handkershief monogrammed with
the letter "G," a leather key con
tainer with five keys, and a sil
ver cigarette lighter. You turn
questioningly to Walter Ward, the
dead man's business partner.
"I don't know just how to be
gin," says Ward. "It all happen
ed so suddenly. As you already
know, Dick Slayton and I operate
this real estate business togeth
er. We were working together
here in the office tonight, and
then Dick stepped out to buy
some cigarette . . . He was gone
only about four minutes, and then
when he came back, he gave me
a cigarette . . . and we both just
lighted up when these two mask
ed men came stalking through the
front door as bold as you please,
waving guns and mumbling some
thing about a stickup. Dick jump
ed up from his chair, and I guess
one of the men was extra jittery
or trigger-happy. Anyway, he
fired . . . and Dick fell to the floor
. . . dead!"
"What happened then?" you
prompt Ward as he hesitates.
"They motioned me over to the
wall, then proceeded to rifle our
safe, taking all the cash that waa
in it . . . luckily there was only
about $60. Then they made me
hand over my wallet containing
about $25, told me not to move
for five "minutes, and left."
"Can you describe them?"
"Well, they both had handker
chiefs, of course, covering the
lower parts of their faces. One of
them was a little over six feet
tall, and about 180 pounds. The
other was quite a bit shorter . .
about five feet eight inches, I'd
say, and) weighing about 150
pounds. They both wore dark
blue suits and gray felt hats pull
ed low over their eyes. The tall
er one had a high, almost falset
to, voice, while the smaller man's
voice was deep and raspy . . . and,
oh yes, the smaller man was bad
ly in need of a shave, too."
Did you move or touch any
thing after this happened, and
before I arrived?" you inquire.
"Oh, no . . . after phoning you
I was too shocked to do anything
"Maybe vlou'll be even more
shocked when I tell you that I'm
holding you for further question
ing," you state. "Your story isn't
quite good enough."
What has made you suspicious
of Walter Ward's story?

home with electric power:
Don Banks, eon of Mr. and Mrs.
Robert Bank, of Marshall Rt. 1,
had his letter published in the
December issue of The Carolina
Farmer, official publication of the
Tar Heel Electric Membership
The question asked in the Teen
Roundtable, was, "What Manner
isms Annoy Boys Most?"
Below is what Don wrote:
"A mannerism which is most
annoying to boys is the habit a
lot of girls) have of telling we're
'cute.' Another one I wonder
about is this: If a girl happens to
have a date with a boy, why must
she go around telling everybody
about it. Dates and the things
you talk about together should be
kept a little more confidential.
