CONCERNING A DISASTER AT THE 'YARD' DAVID PARLEY stretched his lengthy legs, and leaned back on the very comfortable settee in the Blue Room of his very comfortable residence, The Grange, Gurney's End. "Would either of you two gentlemen care to loan me a cigarette?" he said. Phillip, the elder of the Kaye Twins by eight minutes, took out his silver case, walked towards Parley, then changed his mind. "Buy your own fags, sir," he said. "You've caught that trick from Frampton." "Frampton?" echoed Al—the second half of the Twins. "Yes, Frampton, of the Yard," finished Phil for his brother. "Oh, what's the use of pretending that we're a nice happy trio!" "Anyhow, Frampton asked for it," said Parley. "All cops are lousy. Frampton's the lousiest of the whole bunch."
