I would show how he tried time and again to get out of the rackets and go straight but how he'd only gotten in deeper and deeper.

And then I'd use his murder of Simms as a sort of grand finale, the supreme effort of a desperate man to regain his freedom and integrity. Wrong, of course, but really an act of The jury reached a verdict at exactly 8:20 that evening. I looked at my watch as they filed back into the box. They'd been out for more than four hours and I'd already contemplated the grim prospect of a deadlock and a retrial. If that had happened Rugg would have been convicted for I could never have repeated my performance of that afternoon.

I thought it was a terrific stroke of luck when they turned in a verdict of not guilty. It's a funny thing about life. Sometimes you don't know what was good and what was bad until the curtain rings down. And then it's too late. (To Be Continued) HURON COUNTY COURT NOTES NORWALK.

THREE COUNTY GETS FUNDS YOU GOTTA THINK QUICK By Stanley Paley I Copyright, 1944, NEA Service, Ine CHAPTER XXI We got to the airport at about 5:30.

I was tired and mad and had a splitting headache. Several times during the afternoon I'd asked Perez to stop and had tried to get Mickey on the phone. I tried again while they were loading the baggage and mail into the plane but she hadn't returned yet. I don't give up easily, however. With Perez standing outside the booth I kept feeding dimes into the phone.

At last, when nearly all the passengers were aboard the plane, I was told Mickey had just come in. Perez, who must have thought I had some trick up my sleeve, started banging on the door. I motioned 0 to him to take it easy. "Mickey," I blurted out, "I haven't much time. My plane's leaving in a couple of minutes.

You'll find a note. I can't explain now. I'll write. I've been trying to get you all afternoon Perez was pulling the door and I was trying to hold it open shut. "Hello!" said Mickey.

"Hello! What's that noise? I can't hear you, Leo I was losing in the tug-of-war. I just managed to say, "Good-by, Mickey!" before Perez pulled me out of the booth. I didn't even have time to replace the receiver which remained dangling rede the end of the cord. People stared as Perez hustled me through the gate and into the plane. Boggio was waiting for me at the Newark airport and it was clear that something out of the ordinary had happened.

Among the wild thoughts that flashed through my mind was one concerning Ginger. Maybe he'd found out about us. Or maybe the federal authorities had caught up with him on income tax evasion charges. After he greeted me I immediately ruled- -Ginger out. Walking over to his big car, the one that looked like a hearse, he slobbered over me.

A chauffeur was the wheel and Boggio made me get in the back with him. "Let's go to your apartment." I looked at him inquiringly. He'd always preferred to have me come over to his place, SO I felt vaguely uneasy about Ginger again. He sat down and handed me the speaking tube. It was I who had to give directions.

As we drove along I became more and more uncomfortable. "Income tax?" I inquired. He shook his head. "Later. later!" When we got to the Towers he dismissed the chauffeur.

We walked in and the doorman saluted me and beckoned to one of the boys who came running up to get my bags. "Let's go upstairs," said Boggio. impatiently. "Wait till I get my key." The desk clerk was surprised to see me back so soon. There was no mail and no messages, and I left him in the middle of a sentence.

Boggio was nervously Beware Coughs from common colds That Hang On Creomulsion relieves promptly because it goes right to the the trouble to help loosen and expel germ laden phlegm, and aid nature to soothe and heal raw, tender, inflamed bronchial mucous branes.

CREOMULSION for Coughs, Chest Colds, Bronchitis tapping his foot in front of the elevator. The moment we got into the apartment he flopped in an armchair, panting for "Virgil." I said, "you're killing me. What's it all about?" "Don't talk so loud!" He made me pull up a chair beside him, took some newspaper clippings from his breast pocket and handed them to me.

They were about the shooting of a racketeer, Al Simms, by one of men, Lefty Rugg. Simms' name seemed vaguely familiar and then remembered he was one of the thorns in Boggio's side, I handed the clipping back. "You ought be happy about the whole thing." He made an uncouth sound. "Happy!" "Besides, what concern is it of yours?" "Plenty!" He leaned forward and began speaking in a hoarse whisper. Not only was Boggio involved in this affair but he was in it up to his neck.

It was he. who'd had Simms bumped off and now it was back-firing on him. He'd been casually acquainted with Rugg who was tired of working for Simms and had offered to switch allegiance. Apparently Rugg hated his boss with all the intensity of a guy who's a bit unbalanced. He didn't think Simms was paying him enough and was anxious to sell out.

But Boggio was too smart to take in a traitor. At least he though he was, for he made a fatal mistake. He nurtured Rugg's hatred for Simms to a point where he was ready to do anything. Then Boggio casually mentioned that if ever an accident happened to Simms he'd give the person who caused it a little reward of say 10 grand, and then he'd see about a job. The temptation to do away with ta-troublesome rival -without becoming directly involved was something Boggio couldn't But he'd reckoned without Rugg's greed, firmly believing that the killing would only take place when the set-up was perfect.

However, convinced that Boggio had undertaken to stand back of whatever he did, Rugg had let his feelings get the upper hand prematurely. A few days ago he'd shot Simms in cold blood, then he'd gone to Boggio. Naturally the latter had come across with the promised cash but he'd also! given Rugg hell. Didn't he know better than to pull a job without preparing an out for himself? Rugg had then called Boggio a dirty double-crosser. He'd shot Simms because he'd told him to, and if they caught up with him he'd drag Boggio in.

A few hours later he'd been arrested and charged with the killing. He hadn't talked yet, but Boggio was certain he'd do so at the trial. It was my job to save Rugg's skin and at the time Boggio's. CHAPTER XXII That afternoon I went to the jail to see Rugg. The moment he looked up at me I realized what a tough job lay ahead.

He was sullen and rat-faced, and about two years older than I. If he made the same impression on the jury as he did on me, he was headed straight for the chair. It was stunt to get him to talk. Maybe he felt I didn't like htm. Or maybe he was suspicious of people in general.

Finally I became irritated. "Look here, Rugg," I said. "Your neck doesn't mean a damn thing to me, but Boggio's does. And you'll do as I tell you or else you'll burn, so help me!" That put him in a receptive frame of mind and I realized I'd hit on the right psychological proach. He began loosen and from then on I got everything wanted.

But the more told me, the gloomier the outlook became, from a strictly legal standpoint the guy hadn't a leg to stand on. There was one fortunate thing. however. He hadn't talked after his arrest. He'd known enough to keep his trap shut when the cops questioned him.

The rest was up to me. During the following weeks I lost plenty of weight. The responsibility suddenly shoved on my shoulders got me down. I couldn't eat and I couldn't sleep. Boggio would get in touch with me regularly to find out how I was doing.

He'd call up and ask to meet me somewhere, or else he'd come to my place. For some reason he didn't want to see me at his apartment any more, and I figured he was afraid Ginger might find out his connection with the case. That suited me. I had no particular desire to run into Ginger again. I was in a spot.

I hadn't tire faintest idea what line of defense going to take, and at the samas time I had to bolster up Boggio's confidence. To my surprise he was taking all this much better than I'd anticipated. Now that he really was in danger, he; seemed less of a coward than when he was worrying about his bellyaches. The trial had been set for a Wednesday. I decided to go and see Rugg the day before.

At last something had begun to perI found Rugg to pieces. colate inside my He began bawling me out for not having come in earlier. "Shut up, Rugg," I snapped. "I've got to talk to you." He quieted down. "Now listen," I said, "we're both up against a tough proposition.

They're out to get your hide and they've got a pretty good case." "Yes," said Rugg anxiously, He'd become very pale. "There's a certain way of approaching our defense that may save us. But you've got to cooperate. When they question you about the shooting don't be hesitant about admitting you did it. But don't give them any reason when they ask you why.

Keep your trap shut." "What hell then?" "Say you don't know and stick to it. I'll do the explaining." There was an atmosphere of expectancy in the courtroom as Anderson, the prosecutor, drew to the close of his plea for a verdict of guilty. Rugg looked livid. turned away and focused on the jury. They seemed impressed and I realized that if I didn't manage to wean them away from Anderson pretty quickly it was going to be hopeless.

I glanced at Rugg again. His face was twisted with fear as Anderson demanded the full penaity of the law for murder in the tire degree. I was afraid he was going to start blabbing about gio so I motioned to him. He got my signal and slowly sank back in his chair again. Anderson was all through.

I cleared my throat and stood up. For about thirty seconds I didn't say anything. I merely stared at one of the four women in the jury. I'd picked her out at the beginning of the trial. Her name was Hannah Twichell and she was a motherly housewife with two chins.

I'd chosen her because she had an air of authority about her and because it was plain she didn't like Anderson. She'd asked the judge a question and Anderson had barked at her. It was a foolish thing to do. Unless I was co let el wrong. Hannah was gotng to be a pow- MORE WAR BONDS Our Armed Forces, advancing on all fronts, need our support through the purchase of War Bonds.
