PACE THREE' HAUNT F Chapter 25 , huuh and Vince Bonna I atrnllo4 iIvv.m .1. . i- . i i 1 strolled atone the beach the young naval officer found. hinwejf uuaoie to ipfRet the pitiful sob racked Dtcrurfe of Stoiifl ttoverdiiY von Proski as she confessed ner pan in the mysterious occur rences at Kalanii. Granted the woman was selfish and weak, still ner love for her lost child seemed very genuine. "Look Vince. a' starfish!" Hugh's urgent tugging at: his sieeve Drought him back to real ity. He watched the odd little man carry tne Pinn encrusted creature to the water's edae and saw that he was collecting, the i'nv craDs mat nid beneath each stone. "What are you going to do with those'.'" he said curiously. "Use them lor bait. Lin Gook and 1 are grunt: fishing soon." His nuppmess was 'infectious "You like it here, eh Hugh?" Vinoe said. "Yes, 1 do," Hugh said seriously. "Though there aren't as many strange fish as in the Islands When we left Honolulu Luki was teaching me to go spearfishing. All the natives know how. Here you only do it for salmon." "Perhaps you'll stay on here for awhile." Hugh sighed. "1 don't know what will become of me now that Souhie and Simeon are dead." V'ince's mind was whirling "Tjiey told you about Sophie?" "No. I just knew somehow. She Is dead, isn't she. Vince?" "Yes." the naval officer said gently. "Sophie's gone. Hugh." I hey re dead. Hugh said lu gubriously, "just like that old fel low there. He picked up a desi cated crab shell and hurled it out imo ine water. wnen vou re dead nothing matters." he ex plained. Vince didn't reply. There had toen something in Hugh's voice as matter-of-fact arid casual as if he'd been talking about a piece ot wood or a broken toy a thine no longer of use Tid therefore no lpnper of interest. As thev neared Kalanii a mirlpv short man came down the wooden j steps to meet them. His genial I Chapter 26 KALANH's spacious freezing unit was a long room lined with menacing meat hooks and Spartan-white enamel lockers, (seated beneath the pantry it was reached by narrow steps be neath the service stairs to the lpft wing. As Vince and Julia made their way down the rubber- ijreaded steps she looked back at tiim with an amused quirk pull i)ng at her lips. "Johanson is certainly a sur prising individual. I had no idea that he'd given Lin Gook any grouse to put in the freezing unit" "Well so much happened the night of his arrival I suppose he forgot to mention it. Damn glad he finally remembered it though." "So am I. There's nothing like stuffed grouse with wild rice and some of Lin Gook's chestnut gravy." "Stop it. you'll have me drool ing," Vince laughed. The massive automatic lock on the refrigerator room door re sponded instantly to Julia's light touch and they entered leaving the door ajar. "Look Vince, here are Johan son's grouse." Julia walked to the far end. "Aren't they beauti ful creatures? It seems a pity to kill them." She ran her fingers caressingly over their sepia breast feathers. "Yes. beautiful. An unusual color too, very intriguing." Something in his tone made her turn. "You're not looking at the grousel" "That's right. I find' it rather difficult keeping my mind on game birds when a bird of brighter plumage is standing right beside me. You make such pretty speeches, Vince. but l never know if you mean them or if its Just the natu ral gallantry of a southerner." Her voice was wistful. "Don't you? Well, perhaps ac tions will speak louder than words." Slowly he drew her toward him: her arms stole around his neck and her lips were firm and fresh and responsive to his. For An increase in the number of fatal , accidents in the United States was recorded each year in IMS, 1946 and 1947 although the number of fatal motor car acci dents decreased slightly in 1,947.

Vince took the muscular hani in his then turned and introduced him to Hugh. The pSychiatrisf made a funny stiff little bow. "Ah. Mr. Mannley, I am def lighted to make your acquaints ance." Hugh giggled nervous 1 y t "Everyone calls me Hugh." "Very well. Hugh t shall be. I liKe that better too. I am Jan. The skin around Zendro s. eye rormed tiny neshy, rolls that cuiwed together and hid the piercing appraisal that Vince haq glimpsed tor a second. , "I came over to persuade Whiley to take a fishing trip next week but he seems too busy to discuss it So I'll fish with you and the Chinee. Hueh " Hugh stared at him. "Do pu know how to fish nnrl hunt" "My dear fellow, 1 am a Finn, of course L know these things)" "Finland! Then you must nave seen reindeer!" Hugh exclaimed. He took Zendro's arm leading him toward the pier. "Come then," he urged, "You must tell me about them." With childish thoughtless ness he forgot Vince. AMURMUh of voices reached Vince from Sop.ne's "ga zebo." Through a gap n the matted canopy of rambling, roses he caught the brieht sunnv elint of Julia's hair But the voice ne heard was John Bissett's. It wa$ passionate. "Julia, this is the first chance I've had to talk with you alone. "What IS it. John? Have von found something for the police? "No. nothing like that. It's about vou Julia." His voice shook "You need me now. Julia You're all alone, vou need someone to look after vou." I don t think I'll be able tn aflord a secretary," Julia teased.', 'Don't ioke! 1 love vou Julia I want to marrv vou " Are vou sure it's love?" Her voice was kind yet steady. "Per one miraculous moment Kalanii I with its atmosphere ot fear and suspicion faded into the back ground. Vince stored down into pupils grown enormous with emotion. "How was that, Julia?" he whispered. "Wonderful! Do it again!" He laughed. "You're a shame less hussy," he told her. "A brazen woman, but L love you for it and I'm taking you at your word." ..JHe repeated the kiss, this time wM,h more skill and certainty of her Jespbrise. ' Unconsciously as their 'ftps- drew apart he was aware of a sharp click and the encompassing darkness as the brilliant lights went out. "7TNCE! ... the lights! . . . V they've gone out!" There was terror in her voice. "What's wrong with that?" he soothed. "You don't understand the lights are controlled by the o; open door, ing and closing ot the Someone has shut it. we're locked in!" Her body trembled against hia The stygian blackness seemed to drape itself around them like a velvet curtain, sound-proof and impenetrable. Vince squeezed Julia's hand and with the other groped hia way to the door, a door he re membered now as being of steel with heavy rubber strippinand a devilishly efficient automatic unbreakable lever on the outside. "Keep your chin up. Julia . .' . Johanson knows we came down here he ll investigate it were not back shortly. He tried to make his voice re assuring but Julia didn't answer and he knew she was wondering if Johanson would give them an other thought. He had no reason to worry about them ... he wasn't waiting for their return. "Keep moving," he ordered. "Got to keep our circulation go ing."' 'That shouldn't be hard to deb it's a mere thirty degrees in here." Julia moved her legs and beat her arms together while he hurled himself at the door. Th In 1912, a proposal for a 90, 000 mile U. S. national system of highways was assailed as a frivolous expenditure' of public funds for the benefit of a few wealthy pleasure seekers.
