"I've been watching and marveling. The girl seems to be making a desperate, deadly, determined effort to put on weight, and she's carrying plenty already."

"She has a beach umbrella and she lies down, dozes and reads."

"I take it," Mason said, "that you haven't been entirely successful."

"This information was readily volunteered?" Mason asked.

"And what does she do now?" Mason asked.

Mason signed the chit for their meal, said, "There must be a gag tied in with it somewhere, some sort of a publicity stunt."

"You've certainly looked the situation over," Della Street said, as the blonde went through the door.

"Undue!" she exclaimed, "I'm fascinated! I told you I bribed the waitress. They're talking about it in the kitchen. The help have totaled the calories consumed each day and the result is what would be referred to in Hollywood as supercolossal."

"Oh, yes--enough exercise to give her a healthy appetite. And while your untrained masculine eye may not appreciate the fact, Mr. Perry Mason, her bathing suit is being stretched to the limit. It was tight enough to begin with, and now it seems to be about to burst--in both directions."

"She is always alone?"

"I know," Della Street said, "but what in the world could it be?"

"This information was readily volunteered?" Mason asked.

"Oh, yes--enough exercise to give her a healthy appetite. And while your untrained masculine eye may not appreciate the fact, Mr. Perry Mason, her bathing suit is being stretched to the limit. It was tight enough to begin with, and now it seems to be about to burst--in both directions."

"It takes that to keep the figure at its proper level?" Mason asked.

"And what does she do now?" Mason asked.

"How long has this been going on, Miss Sherlock Holmes?" Mason asked.

"Nothing. She's been busy planning the details of the chicken-dumpling feed with all of the fixings."

"Level is not exactly the word," she said. "The figure is noticeably growing. But wait until she signs the chit and leaves the booth--then see what she does."

"She has a beach umbrella and she lies down, dozes and reads."

"Mae doesn't know her?" Mason asked.

Della Street said thoughtfully, "I think she does, Perry. She had a smug smile on her face. She kept her dark glasses on while we were in the booth and sat back under my umbrella. I think she was trying to keep the blonde from seeing and recognizing her."

Mason said musingly, "It's a situation that's worth looking into."

"You've told your Aunt Mae about this?" Mason asked.

"You've certainly looked the situation over," Della Street said, as the blonde went through the door.

Mason said musingly, "It's a situation that's worth looking into."
