Ted stared glumly at Ids receiving

see in Wilkens? Wllkens was un ,
seriipiiluiis, hard, hrutal. Ted lelt that
he could read character, and It was
Ids opinion that, if pressed, there was
almost nothing at which Wilkens
would stop. For instance, Ted in his
bitterness told himself that if Wilkens
knew about the money Ted now had

kens wouldn't do to yet it. This
thought rather worried Ted It was

Mary was singing when the first

So this was why she wanted him

Ted’s room was on the top floor of
llm hoarding house. Down the stairs
he raced to the room of Dick Thomp
son on the Hrst floor.
“Quick, get you! c.r’" Ti ll cried to
Db k, dashing In on the latter. ’Til
tell you why ns wo go aloijr.”
Dick was an eager young fellow, al
ways ready for excitement or iidven-
Mire, s,, he needed no urging.
Soon they were scurrying down the
street In Dick ' ,s| dy little roadster.
"You know where tlm broadcasting
slut|ou is':" Inquired T-d, following
lii' le.-ital of Just what bad happened.
"It is in that tall building near the
far .lid of I'alhotiu street, isn't It?"
said Dick ill response.
"Yes," said Ted. "We ought to see
It in a minute now.’
I or a moment there was silence in
the car as they forged onward. Then
a little exclamation came from Ted as
Hoy turned a corner.
"That's it!" he exclaimed, involun
tarily extending Ills hands toward a
tali building visible ahead.
For answer Dick put on more speed.
Hut another gucer exclamation came
from Ted as lie placed his hand com
pclliugly on Dick's shoulder.
"Do you see that light—top of the
building':' cried Ted. "There It is—
liow It's gone agnin!”
"Sure, I see it," Dick replied.
"Wait. Slow down." demanded Ted.
"It can't be Yes, by .love, it Is!"
For a few minutes Ted watched the
flickering light in apparent fascina
tion, hi' band resting Imavlly all the
time on Dick’s shoulder and indicat

excitement under which he was tailor
Suddenly Ted turned to Dick, his
face drawn with excitement.
"Turn around —hurry back quick!
Quick !" Ted fairly yelled.
Ted saw Dick gaze at him la as tun

“There's no excitement there. 1

Then* was something so compelling
ill Ted's voice and so certain in the
way he spoke that Dick obeyed. In a
moment more they were scurrying
bimk to their starting point at an even
greater speed than they had left it.
“Keep quiet. Follow me. lie ready
for a fight !'' admonished Ted as lie
led the way into the house and started
creeping up the stairs to his room.
The door to Ted's room was shut,
but not locked. As the two young
men stood outside the door listening
Intently there came the sound of move
ment inside the room.
Suddenly, without warning. Ted
threw ojs'ii tlo* door, reached in and
switched on the lights.
A mnn who was bending over u
drawer in the bureau, holding n pocket
flashlight in one hand and a hunch of
Ted's Liberty bonds in tin* other,
looked up startled. Ted's pulses raced
as he saw that tin- man was Wilkens.
For just a moment the tableau re
mained static Then, with a leap, Ted
closed with Wilkens.
The light was s.ioii over. In a coin

np the radiophone station. A broad
smile spread over bis face as lie talked
over the phone.
When Wilkens was taken away Ted
hung up the receiver and turned hap

"It s us for the broadcasting build
