Constance Caraway P.I. ~ Episode 21

…Someone(s) in the secret workings of the federal government is keeping an eye on the U of C scientist…

Back at 6137 Kimbark, there is a treasure trove of information to sort through.

Martin suggests that they work with the University’s new wieldy mainframe computer to expedite the process of information gathering. “It is like having 20 Eddies traveling at 20 different directions at once,” as Martin puts it. “Let’s get to it, girls.”

“Martin, you look into the telegraphs. Fanny, see if you can find out anything about those FBI agents. I’ll work the telephone records.” Three people doing three different things at once. “If you find something, write it down and we will compare notes.”

Connie’s notes-to-self, concerning the numbers that stand out amongst the litany of telephone activity out of the Argonne extension dedicated to Willard Libby:

  • To: Who is Billy Graham? Place a call to Northwestern Bible College where the man is affiliated.’
  • From: Tolentine Friars? Is that a restaurant or a place for Monks?’
  • From: McGraw-Hill Publishing Company. It figures he would be a bookworm,  interesting.’
  • To: The United Nations? Wow, this guy shoots high.’
  • From: Vincent Wolfgram, a single call on 12/10, the day Willard goes missing. That is huge.’
  • To: The FBI, New England office?’ Why did he contact them? And why did they nose around in his business, before he disappeared.’

As for the other two within earshot of Connie’s mumblings, their digital digging bears fruit as well. Each in turn offers some of what they have stumbled upon.

“Those FBI agents work out the Chicago office exclusively,” offers Fanny. “Yet you tell us he calls the Massachusetts office and those two Chicago boys comes a calling, why?” Fanny discovers extensive government files under his name. Someone(s) in the secret workings of the federal government is keeping an eye on the U of C scientist. In this era of Communism fear mongering  and accusation, having a file on you is not a good thing.

Martin Kamen finds out that Willard was in regular communication with Vatican City. What does their stance about the theory of evolution have to do with radiocarbon dating?

…Parking @ Harmonia is free…

Harmonia Part 2

One thing is for sure, Harmonia is currently teeming with representative participation from hundreds of worlds; each to their own obelisk, onsite to proclaim their allegiance to the alliance of the peaceful.

It is merely a symbol of affirmation, devoid of committees and dualistic ambassadors, unlike the defunct United Nations of Earth which turned into a forum for gripe and strife.

Each participating affiliate will provide a physical representative, who will willingly be transported by     to take part in any issues, disputes or accords that need deliberation by the group, within the Harmonia main tower @ the Harmonia Council, in the Great Hall. The representative may be either selected or elected.

|Member citizenry may come and enjoy the natural wonders of the host planet {Mars} and matriculate in the obelisk of their homeworld, if they abide by the environmentally vigilant guidelines of the New Mars.|

The Great Hall in Harmonia Tower is reserved for the designated representatives of each member world.

  • A universal interpreter is available for ease of verbal or telepathic communication.
  • Foreign customs are to be observed when appropriate.
  • The nourishment required to satisfy the tastes of said citizenry will be provided in their obelisk.
  • Only sub-light speeds will be allowed below the radiation inhibiting belt, which begins at the top of Harmonia Tower.
  • Ground transportation autopods are available upon request.
  • Mutual respect is required and is strictly enforced.
  • Parking is free.

The Charter Members will be forever recognized as Earth & Eridanus & Seljuk. Others will follow closely.

The vast majority of Harmonia members know nothing of the other, or even that the planet Earth is in such close proximity. Like any confederation, there will be growing pains. No world will have greater import above the others; neither will dominion in any form be exercised.

Shambhala, Shangri-La, Utopia, Star of Serenity or Heaven? Just what may be the connection with Harmonia & every lofty kingdom, mythical or otherwise?

Lorgan is the final word.
