JT all began the day before.
Naturally, I didn’t know that
anything was beginning then. 1
mean it began the day before we
found the body. That was on
Wednesday, and it war unreason-
ably hot for early June, hot with
a muggy, uncomfortable stickiness
that presaged the storm to come.
Margaret had come up to my
room after dinner to finish ar-
ranging my things.
We’d thought we had the house
all set for the summer, and then
that morning had come a tele-
gram from Kathy—she’s my old-
est granddaughter, child of Wal-
ter’s first marriage—saying that
she had changed her plans and
was coming to stay at Kraiktower
for a couple of weeks before go-
ing to New York.
Originally Margaret had un-
packed my things in the turquoise
bedroom, which has the sitting
room attached. They are the
rooms I usually occupy at Kraik-
tower. Connie, she’s Walter’s sec-
ond wife, and a comely thing with
her blond hair and tawny skin,
had been assigned the mulberry
room at the other front corner of
the house, while Jack and Judy,
the twins, and their nurse occu-
pied the rose room in between.
Margaret is the only servant
who regularly sleeps in the house.
She has the back bedroom at the
head of the stairs. Margaret has
been with me for 30 years.
But Kathy’s coming upset this

clothes and personal belongings
to Margaret and Clara, the up-
stairs maid. It was no wonder
that Margaret was tired and a bit
She finished arranging my toilet
things on the dressing table, put
the only decently furnished bed- necessarily with the children and
rooms in the house.
Ten years before when Michael
and I had the house done over, ex-
pecting to make it our year-’round
home, we had these four spacious
front rooms redecorated in the
colorful modern manner with all
new furnishings. Our old furni-
ture and the family heirlooms
from which we could not bring
ourselves to part were relegated
to the back bedrooms.
As a result one of those is done
in atrocious golden oak with a
brass bedstead which was our
wedding bed, and the other, the
one Margaret sleeps in, is a con-
glomeration of odds and ends in-
cluding the enormous black wal-
nut wardrobe which Grandmother
Pettier brought over from France
with her a century ago.
So following receipt of the tele-
.gram that morning, Margaret and
I had gone into consultation and
decided it would be best if I
moved into the mulberry room.
The shadow of Derek Grady’s murder fell on these four.

Tax-Forgiveness To Cost
Small Tax-Payers More j
Money, Instead Of Less
By JAMES MARLOW And GEORGE ZIELKE
WASH INGTON, May 27— (AP) —The income tax
Here's a preview of what will happen under what
looks to be the future law — the compromise plan
adopted by congressional conferees for submission
to the house and senate. [
In Land And Air
For Kuban Valley
LONDON, May 27-(TP)—A vio-
lent upsurge in the land and air
battle for the Kuban Valley
bi idgehend held by the Nazis in [
the Caucasus was indicated today
by Russian and German reports
of intensified fighting from Novo-
rossisk northward to Temryuk on
the sea of Azov.
For the overage tax-
payer it will mean:
1. More—not less—taxes this
year and in the years just
2. More complicated tax forms
to fill out.
3. A check—off of 20 per cent
on wages and salaries (above ex-
emptions!—17 per cent to apply
against income taxes, 3 per cent
for victory tax.
The plan for cancellation of 75
per cent of 1042 or 1943 taxes,
whichever are 1 less, actually
means higher taxe^; for the aver-
age taxpayer: in 1943. because
he’ll be paying on 1943 income,
which generally is higher, instead
of on 1942 income) in 1944 and
1945 (quite aside from any future
increases in tax rates' because the
uncancelled 25 per cent of 1942
taxes must be paid in two install-
ments in those two years.
The average taxpayer will have
to keep these dates in mind:
June 15—when the next quar-
terly installment will have to be
paid on the same basis as last.
March 15 (both March and June
payments are to be credited
against 1943 taxes'.
July 1—then the check—off on
wages and salaries is to go into
Sept. 15—Anybody whose in-
come isn't subject to the check-off
(except farmers', those whose
wages and salaries are more than
$2700 is single or $3500 if mar-
ried, and those who have or ex-
pect to have $100 or more of in-
come in addition to their wages
and salaries, all must file esti-
mates of their 1943 income. At
the same time they must figure
out how much taxes they’ll owe
<»v< ■' and ..bove what they've al-
ready paid and or will pay
through the check-off :ind nay
half of this amount owed.
Dec. 15—Other half of above
due. Also deadline for farmers to
file estimates of 1943 income and
pay balance due.
March 15, 1944—Every taxpay-
er must file a final report on 1343
income, pay and balance due ‘in-
cluding any on victory tax.' Also
he must pay half the uncancelled
portion of 1942 taxes.
March 15, 1945 Other half of
uncancelled 1942 taxes comes due.
The Russians announced in
their midnight communique that
they had smashed back two coun-

of Novorossisk, with a loss of 20

Berlin later declared, however,
that 63 Russian planes were shot
down yesterday against the loss
of five German aircraft. The high

by the Associated Press, said

bridgehead were repelled by a
The German radio asserted
400 Russians had been killed
and 600 captured in fighting
near Temryuk, but acknowledg-
ed that the Russians had re-
grouped their forces and that
heavier fighting was in prospect.
The Germans, too, issued re-
ports that other m .tors of the long
Russian front had come alive,
with heavy Russian attacks that
dented the German lines south-
west of Velikie Luki and large
scale Soviet scouting activity
south of Staraya Rlissa.

To Be Delayed
STOCKHOLM, May 27—(TP)-
Dispatches from Berlin asserted
today that Germany is preparing
for summer defensive warfare
while Nazi military leaders hope
that no large-scale Allied offen-
sive will start until they can re-
place the losses in men and ma-
terial suffered in the shattering
defeats in the Donets Basin, at
Stalingrad and in Tunisia.
While there is talk in Berlin j
about a Russian summer offen-
sive between Kursk and the Cri-
mea a correspondent of the Stock-
holms Tidningen said that Ger-
man political circles expressed
the belief there would be no ma-
jor action for at least a month.
Other quarters, he said, held
the view that there would be con-
siderable “sounding out” offen-
sive preparations throughout the
summer but that there would be
no major warfare.
Nazi military circles, acknowl-
edging the big gaps caused by the
Russian and North African de-
feats were represented as indi-
cating that Hitler would not
launch any offensive. It was said
they hoped that intensified war
production and total manpower
mobilization would enable them
to return the German fighting I
machine to full strength before

Das Sehwarz.e Korps, weekly
organ of the elite guard, said,
however, that the Allies have
made many preparations for in-
vasion and that Germany must
be prepared to go on the defen-
Neutral circles in Berlin were
quoted by Stockholms Tidningen
as saying that Premier Stalin was
not going to begin the offensive

was not sure whether the Amer-
