Jere Kane felt that at last he was near the end of the trail. He had no doubt hut that "Buddy" i id killed Bailey. In a moment of insane jealousy sh» might even have -hot Nanette Leßoi. Hut who was "Buddy"? He smiled t’ himself; he would soon kn*nv. The taxicab whirled from Highland av-nue into the street In which /•-alley lived and began laboring up the steep hill. Grimly, Kane thought of his narrow escape at that corner. He did not for a moment, now. have :»nv other thought than that someone had deliberately attempted to kill him. There was only one reason for such an attempt: the murderer of Hichard Bailey feared that he had found the trail and wanted to get him out of the way ' Presently, the cab pulled up to turn into the driveway leading back to the entrance of the murder house. Kane stopped him* "I'll walk In." he said. He alighted anti paid the driver, then turned up the driveway. The house was ablaze with light. The ’ rront door was standing open.

Perhaps the servant had re tired the strain of his secret and what had occurred must have been a heavy burden for him to bear—in his room upstairs. Taking the stairs two at a time, Kane was soon stand ing (n the door of the old man’s room. Chivington was not there. There were other rooms on this floor. Three doors, besides that to the servant's quarters, opened off the dark corridor. One by one, he opened them and peered in. These were bedrooms, neatly arranged, lux uriously furnished. But. even though the lights in each were burning, they were empty of life. Bounding back downstairs, he went over the lower floor again. This lime he found a door which he had over looked. Jerking It open, he found a dark passage. Groping about, he dis covered a switch and snapped it. In stantly. the passage was bathed in light and was revealed as a stairway leading into a basement. The faint strains of music came to him. It stopped, and a voice said. “You are listening to a program of dance music played for you by the Embassy orchestra. Wo have an un usually large .Sunday night crowd here tonight and we urn more than pleased to have with us several visit ing police officials who are in our Gulden of Eden for their annual con vention. And." the voice laughed, "they seem to have found several Eves to entertain them. You know, these arms of the law might have come out here for business, but they certainly look like they're in a swing now. They might hold their sessions on Sunday, but Sunday night Is thejr night out." As the music started again he saw another switch beside the one he had snapped. He touched it and the l>nse mem glowed with shader) lights. Descending, he found himself in an elegantly a "pointed retention room., In a far corner he espied O’Hara, sound asleep. He was across the large room at O'Hara’s side in a flash. Gruffly, lie shook him. The detective shook Itim self. sat up and gazed about in be wilderment. Then he looked nn and saw Kane. "Where's i'hivington.” the amateur detective demanded. "Upstairs asleep," the other tiuui muttered sleepily. "He told me to come down here and get some rest." "No he isn't,” Kane snapped. "Ho isn't in the house at all.” O’Hara si rambled to his feet. "You mean he ain't upstairs asleep?" he asked, more in protest against being thus aroused than in dismay over the servant's disappearance. "No." sharply. •‘There’s no one in the house at all except you.

I tried to get him to tell me who it was hut he wouldn't | do it. “It was then that he said he warn going up for some rest and that if I wanted to I could come down here.” "Did he say anything else?” eagerly. “Yes. He did say something about taking Bailey's car and going down on the boulevard later to get some thing for supper. He said he'd go after he rested a bit.” "Did he go?" "I reckon he did.'* the detective re plied sheepishly, "if he ain't here." Kane returner! to the floor above, the officer following at his heels like a pet dog. "See if the car is gone," Kane or dered. When the detective had gone he went into the den. A quick survey showed him that nothing had been disturbed. Presently, the officer re turned, his eyes bulging with excite ment. "The garage door's locked!” he al most shouted. 'There’s a car in there and the motor's running." "Conic on," Kane cried and started for the rear of the house. At the garage door he stopped short. A padlock belt} th» doors flrrn- Ily closed. He could hear the «est I purr of an automobile engine. “Maybe the old man's trying to kill himself." O'Hara muttered. "Get that lock off there." Kane di rected. The officer looked aliout for a rock hut in the darkness could find none. "TTse your gun," the other snapped. •'O'Hara drew his revolver and, using the butt end as a hammer, pounded away at the heavy lock until it fell oft. After’ Kane had thrown open the doors he replaced his gun. pulled out a small pocket flash and went In. A moment later he was hack again, coughing deeply. "There's enough gas In there to kill an army.” he sputtered. Kane took the light, covered his nose with his handkerchief and went in. He flashed the light into the ear. Two persons were in the front scat, one was Chivington. He was slumped down, his chin hanging on hi^chest. Eying against the w heel was a girl he had never seen before. She was n young woman, extremely blonde, passingly comely, with soft even fea tures and a delicate body.

This one deals with alterations In Artirle IV, defining functions of the judi cial department.) Raleigh. Dec. 2. (AP) The chief justice of the Supreme Court of North Carolina would become in fact the head of the State's judicial system ns well as its nominal leader under changes in Article TV of the ba.«ic law as proposed by the Constitutional Commission. | A judicial council would be creat- J ed with the chief justice as chairman j to meet once a year upon his call to make rules for pleading, practice and procedure in the courts. Rules of the Supreme Court, how ever, would continue to be made by the justices of that branch. Justices of the peace, sheriffs, coro ners. clerks of the superior court and the clerk of the Supreme Court no I longer would be constitutional offi cers. These piaces would be filled by j act of the legislature. A proposed amendment to the pre sent Constitution, which has vot ' ed down at the polls on several oc ; casions. is included in this proposed i new Article IV. Solicitorial districts. | separate of judicial districts, could be i created, providing for more solicitors than judges, , The General Assembly also would be empowered to provide for more than one superior court judge to a ! judicial district. Instead of the governor appointing judges for special courts, this duty would fall upon the chief justice as head of the judicial system. ■ Terms of office of ail superior and supreme couUtt judges would be eight years. Superior court jurists are now elected for four year terms. The General Assembly could, if need arose, increase the number of | judges on the Supreme Court bench. The number is now limited to four I and a chief justice. An amendment to j the present Constitution to allow an i increase has been defeated at the | polls. The Supreme Court would be given j | power to sit in divisions but no de- ■ • vision of any division would become J 1 lhe judgment of the court unless con-j : curved in by a majority of the whole j | court, and no case involving the Con-! | stitution could be decided except in | I full meeting. j Aycock Hi-Lights THK STAFF Editor-in-Chief Sue Hicks Eiteraiy Editor Melvin Faulkner School News Editor ....
