Rickie gets a telegram informing him that his German model plane's blueprints have been accepted by the National Model HQ, and he is invited to enter their contest. The Heap, still infatuated by that model, watches as Rickie leaves on a train bound for New York with the model, and follows him to the Big Apple. Police bring the creature down and they attempt to chop him up with axes, but the beast arises and escapes.

Indexer Notes

Highsmith's habit of referring to a World War as "World War #1" or "World War #2" is used in this story, which raises suspicions she could have written it.
