PROVING CRIME WILL OUT
Another touching vignette that piques the Roundup -
This CBI-anchored laddie earned a 20-day leave.
Normally, one hits the trail for an idyllic retreat in the Himalayas as soon as his CO hands him
But our hero had a far more ambitious plan.
He would spend his leave in Shangri-La with his wife.
To start with, he wired her to meet him in Miami. ("Don't say a word to a soul, honey.")
Then, after a heart-to-heart talk with the pilot, he boarded a plane.
Came the end of his blissful vacation in Shangri-La, and our hero tenderly kissed his helpmate
goodbye. ("Don't say a word to a soul, honey.")
Fortune continued to smile benignly. He successfully made his way back to this neck of the war.
The days passed without incident and he became satisfied that no one was going to be the wiser.
But crime will out.
Friend wife is pregnant.
A confession was in order.
