Tom has hired a private detective to find Teresa and Wesley, but the detective hasn't been paid and is sitting on the case. Virginia Calderwood visits Rudy on the job and invites him to the theatre, after which he is "allowed" to take her to supper. Virginia offers to intercede with her father, but Rudy turns her down. Rudy is invited to a gathering tomorrow evening where an old friend of his will be. Upon meeting, Rudy tells Julie to face facts, that they will be married at some time and promises to call her in the morning. Virginia tries to get Rudy to take her back to his hotel room, but he tells the cab driver to go to the Barbizon instead. In the back of the cab, Virginia tries to seduce Rudy and then gets angry that he doesn't comply. She vows to "get" him. Tom is enjoying a flirtation with the wife of coach's new star boxer, and he has someone keeping an eye on them. Tom gets a call from his private detective, with a 6-month-old lead on Teresa and for another $100, he'll be able to track her down. The boxer beats up his wife and she tells Tom to get out of town. Tom waits for the husband in his motel room, where he beats him enough to cancel the fight. The coach tells Tom that the boxer's owner is "connected" and that he has no idea the trouble he's in. Motel room neighbors have called the police. Coach sends Tom to his friend who can set him up in the merchant marines. Written by anonymous See less
