We crossed town and picked up Major Drurp- mond, a vociferous, bristly character with sandy hair and bushy eyebrows, and his timid little wife who made no comment, during our entire trip. Not that there wasn't plenty she might have said. The perfection of that fall day, with the warm sun and mellow air and a earful of people glad to be hitting the trail—as though all this were not enough to make chatter easy, the speedometer needle stuck at "20." Roger reduced speed while he pounded on the dashboard. The needle sank to the bottom, "Oh well," he said, "it isn't important I'm a good judge of speed. It isn' worth wasting time to have i fixed. Means taking the whol' instrument panel off. 1 ' Roger may have thought he was a good judge of speed, but Majo Drummond didn't concur. Hourly he yelled, "Hasn't this car any> Ihing but high gear and a throttle?** As often as he yelled, Rogei slowed down, only to creep up again to his preferred speed. Rac ing along a bad stretch of road we hit a bump and there was a rattle of metal. "Bounced off a rear hub cap," Major said. "Rolled ove the bank." "Okay," Roger dismissed it "that's not serious." I felt tne MHJOF'S shrewd eye QUUi*UTtD »Y NIA UftVKt IMC tudying my facp and I purposely ultivated a vacant stare. . . . After II, accidents may happen to any- me. We reached Mammoth Hot Springs in time to investigate the ulphnr deposits and caverns be- oie dinner. "Eerie," Major Drum- Tiond said. -"Remind me of tun- els of love and papier-mache mountains on a roller coastor," "If we hurry," Roger said, as .hough we'd been doing anything else but, "we'll get to the Canyon "or sunset. But I've got to tighten his sun visor before we go any farther. Keeps falling down and Bothering me." He tightened it. It really fell down this time—fell right into his lap. "Hot!" he observed. "Crystallized. Oh, well, the sun will soon be set. Won't need it after all." This time Major Drnmmond avoided my questing eye. * * « Ij aboard t" Koger called hurrying us by speeding tip the motor and letting it backfire. It made a loud bang. "There goes your muffler.** Major Drummond said, laconically like a disinterested spectator calling out a score. We root-a-tooled to the Canyon in lime to see the setting sun tint the rock walls a variegated pattern in .soft colors, and later we troopec to the dump to watch the bears come down from the woods to feed The only spectacle we didn't see was the person who spotted the yellow necks of our lifeguard tubes sticking out like horns, and whg removed them and their new tire, sometime during the night, substituting what he had on hand a the moment. "You're insured, aren't you? 1 Roger asked, "Yes. Bui—" I began, rente m bering how scarce good lires were "No hut's about it," he said play fully. "Just let the insurance company worry." We drove the loop to the Lake et high In the cradle of moun- nins, and after lunch struck on" oulh for a ,quick peck at the Jrand Tetons. We can KM I first ight of them through a bienk in he trees. "Stop!" Mnjor cried. Tliis I gotta see." Unable to come to a stop until ^e had ppsscd our vantnge uoinV >y several hundred yards, rnlber han back up, we piled out to walk. "Lock the doors," Mnjor autioned. "Remember the tires." Ve locked the car thoroughly. . * • • A ND then we discovered that f * Roger had left the key In the gnition. "That's all right." he reassured Major, who was preparing o have a fit, "Lee has her keys." Aware of my blank face, he added n anguished disbelief, "Haven't r ou?" I stood pnralyy.ed, dumb ns * fish. That's n woman for you," Roger called on the world to note. Never has her keys when she needs them. Always getting locked out of her house. Or her car." "But—" I began. Roger cut me olT with a motion of disgust. He walked over where Major Drnmmond hnd busied him*;elf attempting to pry a window open with a knife blade. "Too good a Job of locking up," he snid. 'And miles from nowhere," Roger contributed, looking at me reproachfully. "You leave me no alternative but to break a window." He picked up a rock. "A beautiful car like this and I hove to maim it. ... I feel ns wnnlon as though I were deliberately destroying an object of beauty." He poised the rock a moment while he fixed me with his eye and let his lecture sink in. He repeated, "I never thought yqu'd do anything so foolish as to leave your keys nt home," Wjth that, he cracked the ven- tifaling window, I turned my back while he whammed • it again. Knocking a hole in a car window is something akin to knocking.out a front tooth; il leaves a gap which is both unbecoming and raw, and out of all proportion lo its actual size. That hole WHS bigger than the Grand Tetons; I couldn't see them (or looking at it.
