A crumpled bit of PAPER about seven or eight inches long and three-quarters of an inch wide . .. Three brand new HUNDRED-DOLLAR BILLS ... A RADIO PROGRAM of loud swing music ... A wooden-handled MAUSER .32 ... A file card on a SAFE-DEPOSIT BOX ... A small automatic PISTOL found under a mattress ... A KEY left in the door of an apartment . . . FINGERPRINTS on some drinking glasses ... A cup of COLD COFFEE ... An empty glass VIAL ... A folded piece of LIGHT-BLUE PAPER found in a dead man's pocket. Wouldn't You tike to Know—
