When they rang the chime bell, Freeman came to the door. “This is a pleasant surprise, Yarborough,” he said. “Come in, come in. I’ve just been working on my dictionary of root words of the Middle East. ” When Professor Yarborough explained that he had with him a tape recording of RaOrkon actually whispering, Freeman showed great excitement.
Strapped to his belt, under his coat, Jupe had a portable tape recorder. Modern investigation procedures required scientific equipment, he had said when the boys first started the firm of The Three Investigators. Gradually they had acquired quite a bit of equipment, making or rebuilding most of it from worn-out or junked apparatus that Jupiter’s uncle had acquired in the normal operation of The Jones Salvage Yard. In the little laboratory at Headquarters they had a microscope and apparatus for enlarging fingerprints and making other tests, as well as a darkroom for developing prints of any pictures they took with the flash camera that Bob had contributed.
I’m sorry, Yarborough,” he said. “I couldn’t make out a word of it. But there’s a lot of tape hiss on the recording. Let me get a new noise suppressor I’ve just received, and try the tape on another machine. ” He left the room, returning presently with a small attachment. He placed this and the tape on a second machine and they prepared to listen again. It was at about the same moment when, on the other side of the canyon, the light truck from The Jones Salvage Yard pulled up in front of Professor Yarborough’s home.
