THIS WEEK’S HOSTS: HAL BRYAN AND JIM O’KANE OF THE ROCKETEER MINUTE

Roger spots a copy of the evening Chicago Daily Sun-Times newspaper, with the headline: “TWO DIE AS CROP-DUSTER PLANE CRASHES AND BURNS”

The subheading says “Low Flying Craft Hits Oil Tanker; Truck Drivers Escape Holocaust.”

“How did it go today?” asks Eve, pouring drinks. 

“The meeting… with Kaplan?” asks Roger. 

“Uh-huh,” replies Eve.

“He didn’t show up,” says Roger, icily. 

“Oh?” says Eve.

“It’s funny, isn’t it?” says Roger. 

“Well, why funny?” asks Eve. 

“Oh, after all those involved and explicit directions he gave you on the phone,” says Roger. 

“Maybe I copied them down wrong,” says Eve. 

“No, I don’t think you got them wrong,” says Roger. “I think you sent me to the right place, alright.” 

“Well, why don’t you call him back, and see what happened,” replies Eve, uneasily. 

“I did,” says Roger. “He checked out. Went to South Dakota.”

“South Dakota?” asks Eve. 

“Mm-hmm,” replies Roger. “Rapid City.”

“Well, what are you going to do next?” asks Eve.

“Oh, I haven’t made my mind up yet,” replies Roger. “It may depend on you.”

“On me?” says Eve, carrying the drinks.
