Wednesday, April 26, 1944 Take Away the Lady .Ca By LITER DENT THE STORY: Lieut. Link Belt. Army Air Corps radioman, Ill interned in NiJi prison, Yokohama.  plane was brought down while bombing Tokyo. He is talk- ing to Pilot Officer Baldwin of the RAF, a fellow prisoner, when the ceil door opens and a Jap omcer steps inside. CHAPTER III He stood as they always seemed to stand, one hand on a holstered revolver, as his eyes searched the prisoners• "&apos;Your badges," said the officer loudly. "'All your badges, let me see." The badges were made of white cloth, all prisoners being forced to wear them. Printed on them was the wearer's name, nationality, and a number• They must be worn at all times• "They're after somebody," Bald- win whispered. Link nodded and said, "Poor devil, whichever one of us it is." He did not say it very loud. He said it, probably, because that was what they usually said when the Japs took away a prisoner. Actually, Link bad the queerest feeling that be was the one they were after this time. All of a sud- den. he felt the way you feel after lightning has struck close to you. So he somehow was not surprised at what happened• The officer pointed at Link. "You," the officer said. "You come with me.'" Baldwin, in a stricken voice, gasped, "'What's wrong? What's happened?" "My name must have come out of a hat'" Link said. Or had they found out that he had been in a bomber which had dropped a few on Tokyo, he won- dered. They took him upstairs. So he knew he was going to the elab- orate private office of Captain Azaraski, commandant of NiJi Prison. There were many flights of stairs. There was an elevator too, but they did not let Link use it. They climbed stairs and stairs and stairs and stairs. Capias Azaraski sat behind a desk. Looking. reflected Link, like an organ monkey that had popped about half way out of a walnut box. 'Give me your name," said Cap- fain Azaraski curtly. "Lieut. Lincoln Belt." "Your middle name, also.'" Link had had trouble about that before. They seemed to think all Americans should have a middle name. "I have no middle name," he said. Captain Azarski was looking at a document, but not writing down anything "'Your age?" Copyright. 1944. NEA Service, Inc. How had they found that out? He was dumbfounded. "Eyes blue, hair red, height six feet one inch, weight 180." Aza- raski lifted his eyes and examined Link. "You have lost about 20 pounds. I should say." He made a notation, evidently changing Link's weight. "Now," Azaraski said, "from what field did you leave on the flight which ended in your cap- ture?" This is it, Link thought. This is the beginning of the party. "Not military information a prisoner is required to disclose," Link said. Captain Azaraski leaned back and stared at Link. "Tokyo," he said. "must be an interesting sight from the air at night. I have never seen it my- self." So they had the dope on him. Or were they just fishing? Azaraski began to grin. "Now," said Azaraski unexpect- edly, "let me tell you the one about the lawyer who told the judge he didn't want to parade his virtues. Whereupon the judge said for him not to worry, it takes a number to make a parade. Ha, ha, ha." Link's mouth fell open. Azaraski laughed. The Azaraski came around the desk and reached up and clapped Link on the shoulder. "What did you think we were going to do to you?" asked Aza- raski. "Cut off your ears and hold matches to your feet? Forget it, pal. Forget it." Link was speechless. Captain Azaraski rubbed Link's back like a lodge brother and asked, "'How would you like to be sitting on the front porch of the Its Club rigb. now?" "The Its Club!" Link said. still more astonished. "How on earth would you know about the Its Club?" Azaraskl went back and stood behind his desk, still grinning. "We have osteopathic doctors in Japan. too. you know'." he said. Until now there had been, as far as Link was concerned, three cate- gories of Japs. There were thin ones, fat ones, hard ones• He had typed Azaraski as one of the last, and let it go. Now Link was jarred. For the: first time. he was really inter- ested in one individual Jap. He looked closely at the man. Captain Azaraski was about 40. i His glasses made his eyes look slightly smaller, indicating my- opia. He had cicatrix tissue art "Twenty-eight." his left cheek, the result of a con- "Birthplace'?" sidersble cut at some time or "Not military information.-" said lather- He was bright, alert and Link. l in good health, apparently.
