    Beat it

    Hi!

    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.

    What does 'beat it' mean?

    Thanks
