FOURTEEN NEWARK COURIER-GAZETTE AND MARION ENTERPRISE,; NEWARK, N. Y. THURSDAY, JUNE 26, 1941 TELEPHONE 710 iH O U S E O F H A Z A R D S A r t h u r Charming Camilla reaches Egypt on a pleasure '. tour with a party of other Am­ ericans, On the voyage she has many admirers, aipong them the wealthy Syrian, Joseph Asad who, as Camilla learns, is in reality Hassan tsar, a leader of fanatical Arabs in Palestine, On the boat too, she meets Ron­ ald Barker, half American edu- cated in England, known as El Kerak, mysterious' leader of tribes opposed to Hassan ' Isar. .Camilla accepts the attentions of Joseph Asad in order to ob­ tain information helpful to Ronald Barker, and goes with Asad to view the Pyramids by -moonlight. ' Eluding As Ad, she goes ont on the rocks to enjoy the quiet. There Ronald Bar­ ker appears in the costume of a native camel driver. He tells her he. is going to-Jerusalem where he houes to see her later. The . next day,. Camilla and Slim Mc­ Manus, fellow tourist, visit the antique shop owned by MaJm moud Daoud, one of Ronald’s - enemies. Chapter 7 Tne% most fascinating city in -the-.world, .the object of. her Eastern pilgrimage, was now unimportant to Camilla beside the impulse to get to Jerusalem and Ronald Barker at the earl­ iest -no’-' ent. She packed, her bag and waited in- the lobby for the time when they would take the afternoon, tenrrto Jerusa­ lem, Slim, jomed-.her and order- fa -coffee instead of a cock- . Because Camilla, J ordered ad -^hey sat watcKihg the ople come and. go. like1; thh rutters of Peacock: Alley, keep­ ing an eye for the returning' tourists from the Green Mos=- que. Three persons entered the hotel in earnest conversation^- Asad. Kitty .Trimble and Mah- rnoud. Without seeing Camilla and Slim, they went into the cafe. Slim watched them suspici­ ously as they disappeared 'be­ hind a screen. Slim flicked his cigarette ac­ curately mto a Japanese vase. -‘Well, it’s no business of mine,” he told Camilla. “All I know is • that you or Barker can call on me for help if you need it. I like Ronald Barker, he’s half American and a regnlar guy. I dont dike that bird, Asad. X think you've fallen for that guy, —Camilla E uSed to think I was in the running. It seems to me it might cleaT the air a bit if you’d tell me just how we all stand ” She smiled. “I like Ronnie a - lot, I love Joe a ' little, but I adore you, Slim.\ . Slim flushed, snubbed out his cigarette in a dish. “Say, quit ■ your kidding, Camilla.” “Then don’t ask impertinent ^-questions. And if you’ll promise not to tell anybody I’ll let you Into a secret.” She paused and . examined the toe of her slipper. - “You see, Slim, we’re getting out Into Joe Asad’s country now. I encouraged Asad to go on the -..tour .with me, Slim. I’d rather have him where I can keep an eye on him—at least until I ■ hear from Ronnie at the King Davlcf Hotel.” ■ “And then?” At this moment Edgar Willing entered the corridor shepherd­ ing his flock, sending the tour­ ists-at once to their rdoms to have their baggage ready for the porters and themselves for the taxis to the Station. , Asad and Kitty Trimble join­ ed Camilla and Slim. “Tdo bad X couldn’t do the honors of Cairo,” he said. “I’ve been so busy—” “Yes,” Camilla replied with a smile at Kitty, “I noticed that.” Slim stood on the sidelines. •. grinning. It seemed to him that moie than ever Camilla would have to watch her step—espe­ cially as Joe arranged that Ca­ milla and Kitty Trimble should , dine with him on the train. But Slim invited himself to that party.' He had made up his mind jciot to let Camilla out of his sight. When she mentioned1 the name of Ali Afdal his face broke into a hundred wrinkles and'became'what he intended to be a smile. into the darkness, the inquiet­ ude that Camilla had been aware of since last she had It seemed extraordinary to see -an ocean liner, all her lights glowing, rise suddenly out pf the midst of the desert, until Asad -told her that they had reached the Siiez ferry at Kan- tara where they changed to the French train that was to tak- them oh to Jerusalem. As they left the canal and the rackety ged along the crooked seen Ronald Barker seemed to grdw with the miles. IfrQm the railroad station at Jerusalem to a modem hotel in bright colors with a porte- cochere and bellboys in fake Turkish costumes. At the desk she found what she was looking for—a note from Ronnie—but she did not open it until she reached her own room. “Come to the stall of Amaziah in David Street. Next to the oranges on the right side, going east from the Jaffa gate. Bring, a guide and'ask for Ali'Afdal.” No signature—not even an initial. She glanced at her wrfstwatoh. Ten • o’clock. She took Slim into her confidence and he volunteered at once. He said he didn’t need a guide. He knew the dump. Asad had dis­ appeared, probably on -one of his mysterious missions to some mosqtte or high Arabian digni­ tary. For this she was thankful, taking coffee with Slim and hurrying off in a taxi after making sure they were not ob- ierved or followed, ' At David’s Tower Slim and Camilla dismissed the taxi and went on foot into a narrow street little more than an alley, a dark street of shadows striped I with sunlight, with narrow archways leading into dark pas­ sages, others leading to little courtyards with glimpses of palms and bright sunlight be­ yond the gloom. On the right down the hill was a pool of bright sunlight where Camilla saw a pile of oranges spread for customers. This was the place, she was sure. She laid restraining fing­ ers on Slim’s arm, asking him t© wait in a tobacconist’s shop while she Went forward. An old Jew sat in the mouth of the stall, a Jew in a skullcap thumbing the pages of a book. He looked up as she stopped before him and spoke the name “Amaziah” as he uncrooked his back and then crooked it again in a courteous bow. When she mentioned the name of Ali Afdal his face broke into a hundred wrinkles and became what he intended to be a smile. And then he made a gesture, “Ali Afdal—yes,” point­ ing to a door beside him, an ancient wooden door letting into a wall that seemed to pro­ tect a garden. There -were olive trees in the garden and stone pedestals of what had once been a temple. As she entered a figure rose from a bench and greeted her— an Arab, she thought, and was about to ask him where All Af­ dal was when the Arab behind his stains and robes was sud­ denly Ronald Barker himself. He embraced her eagerly, explaining that he had remain­ ed in native costume since she had seen him last, for he had heard in Cairo that there were other Arabs in Jerusalem' deter­ mined to destroy him. “It's worse than I thought,” he muttered, shaking his head. “Asad’s crowd has been too clever for ihe. But at last I can now move with my eyes open. Did Asad ask you any questions about me?\ “Yes, lots. But he didn't get the right answers.” “Where is Asad now?” he ask­ ed. “I don’t know, fie disappear­ ed from the railway,station in a taxi. I haven't seen him sine \ “Who brought you here?\ \Slim.\ “Where is henow?” “Juqt a few steps away, in. tl been a real friend to you and to me.” They had been talking in lowered tones, but as she sat beside him he now spoke almost in a whisper. “Camilla, I’m go­ ing into a situation of consider­ able difficulty, I think it’s safer for you not to be connected with me in any way. If I had my wish I’d prefer to send you by train down to Haifa.” \Nonsense Ronnie. I’m per­ fectly capable of protecting my­ self.” “I'm not sure of that. I could provide you with a police escort wherever you go, but the sight of our constabulary stirs up trouble.” She was awake now to the. seriousness of his tone and1, manner. “What makes you think something will happen to our party?” “Many things. Since the Bri­ tish took charge, the Arabs dis­ like Americans, too. The French Foreign Legion doesn’t interfere with them so long as they break no lafas. Camilla, you’ve got to understand that Syria isn’t Egypt or even Palestine. Syria has a French mandate. The French are rather jittery since that flare-up down at Beirut. They’re not anxious to stir up trouble with a powerful sheik like Arif—or his son, Has­ san. Arif has great influence with the desert people. The French want to keep his friendship)—” “But what difference will that make so long as I keep the friendship of Hassan?” she ask­ ed significantly. Ronnie Barker paced the flag­ stones, aware of a note of de­ fiance in Camilla’s voice. He glanced up at her with an ex­ pression she had not seen on this face. “I thoroughly believe,” he said with great deliberation, “that your affair with Hassan gives you a great deal of pleasure, as. well as excitement that his at­ tention flatters you. that dan­ ger intrigues you—’’ “Really,” “It’s true. You like being near the edge of disaster. In the United States girls are accus­ tomed to having their own way, to ruling their men by flattery,’ and they play the game to win. But in Turish countries it's not the same thing. A woman is less than a man. A girl can’t play with men In Moslem countries as she does in the United States. I can’t permit you to go anv further in this affair with Hassan.” She frowned angrily.'“Permit! I don’t like that word, Ronnie Barker. You don’t want my friendship with Hassan Isar. Well”—she shrugged—“I do want it. Even if I’d never met you I’d want it. I’m very fond of Hassan. He’s always kind and considerate. I began by trying to do you a service. Now r in­ tend to cultivate Hassan's friendship whether X do you a service or not.” “Camilla!” He paused abruptly and she never learned what he was go­ ing to say. For sounds of com­ motion came through the door bf Amaziah's fruit stall, voices raised in anger and the sounds of blows. Ronnie ran to the door and peered out at a scene of wreck­ age and turmoil where Arabs, jews and blacks surged around the tall figure of Slim McManus who, bareheaded, was pushing and striking right and left at the antagonists, one of whom had clambered on his bark in the hope of pulling him to the Aid ened Amaziah and his scattered oranges, a momentary diversion took place as two British con­ stables in neat blue uniforms came hurrying down the steps.. By this time Slim was wiping the blood from his face, ready to aim a blow at the figure who rushed out of Amaziah’s door* way toward came Ali Afdal’k''~vpi.ee in English. I ’m Ronald Barker.” Slim was so astonished at this fami, voice emerging from a . natiV costume that he stood staring, unable, to say a word. Meanwhile a larger crowd‘had gathered agaih at the right of the constables, peering from every window and doorway, voices and hands raised jin angry protest. “Let me go,” whispered. Ali Afdal to the constable in Eng­ lish and added something that, made the man comply at once. “My oranges!” wailed Ama­ ziah. Slim grinned. “Keep your shirt on, Toots,” he said, taking out his wallet. “I’ll buy your oranges, if you’ll stop making. &• noise.” He handed the man a pound note and the wailing ceased. “You're American?” the con­ stable asked. “What are you do­ ing here?” “Just seeing the sights.” “What started the trouble?” “Well, you might say it was a young man in a white linen suit and a tarboosh. He tried to get familiar with the young ,lady I was with and I may have jostled him a hit.” “Where is he now?” Slim peered over the heads of; the crowd. “Seems to have gone.” “Do you know who he was?” “Never saw him before. But I can’t have any one insult my girl friend. Yon wouldn’t stand for that, now would you, con­ stable?” —■-— The constable pulled at' his small mustache and agreed I N e v e r C o m p l a i n . . . about drinking, milk since Mom. started getting, it from , City Dairy.

A L L -S T A R S that he wouldn’t. “Well, , you’d better take your girl friend back to the hotel and we'll forget it.' \Thanks old man. I’ll do the same for you some day.” Slim looked around for Ali Afdal but he, also, had disappeared.
