    Beat it


    Woods has been spending around here--his extravagant way of living? Where do you think that money comes from?"
    "His contracts with the French Government," I replied.
    "But I happen to know he didn't land those contracts. That's the reason he beat it so suddenly when we got into the war." He tossed his cigarette into the fire.
