KREAM KASTLE Walnut & Division Phone 3-8051 DRIVE-IN THE COWARD RAY IAPICA Copyright 1955 fcy NEA Wvte*, (AC XV THE speedometer showed Tim, Clair and Sharon had traveled 279 miles from Detroit when they pulled into Chicago at 3 o'clock the next morning. Tim Rogers was dog tired, but at ease. Clair Kolinsky, her summer coat pulled up high around her throat, had watched Tim sleepily during the last hours of the trip to make sure that he didn't tall asleep. Her small daughter Sharon was fast asleep between them, with her rag doll clutched in her arms. Tn the huge sprawling metrop- o Clair directed Tini through the streets to Oak Park to the west- They found Aunt Emily's street without much trouble. As they drove down it, searching for her apartment house, Clair suddenly switcfied off the lights. Her voice was a strnined whisper. "Keep going—fast You just passed them—on your left under those trees. Three men in a car." "How could you tell?" "One of them ft • cigaret as we passed.* "Did they see us?** "Don't think so. They might have caught the license plate. Don't turn now!" But Tim paid no heed. Torn between sudden fury and fear, lie whipped the wheel around at the corner in a screeching U- 'turn, "They won't chase us any more tonight," he said grimly. He jammed the accelerator to "the (loor. As the machine raced back toward Aunt Emily's build- ir-. he swerved into the shadows of the trees in which a dark car WAS parked. He switched on his lights. Head-on, he clipped th« front fender with hii bumpCT. Thirc was • jolt, the scream of .T ' • • shor.cil as the (cn- 'bcr oi lue parkod ear over the left front wheel. They caught a sight of three white astonished faces before them. Then Tim roared away. Tim had already turned at the first corner, his heart pounding so hard he could feel it in his temples, before he found his voice. 'Follow us now, you punks!" Tim broke out into a wild laufih. Clair looked at the crazy man beside her. "What got into you?" And Tim laughed again. 1 don't know. But did you see those scared faces!" THEY were soon out on the highway again, this time headed west. "Where next?" Clair asked. "I'm afraid I don't know. We're running out of relatives. Got any more out here?" "No. Have you?" "Nearest is California. Shall we go back?" Clair looked at the dark terrain rushing by them, then at the suddenly alive and exhilarated man beside her. Back to what? she wondered. 'How far to California?" she asked. And Tim began to tell her about Uncle Jack and Aunt Marie's chicken ranch out in the Mojave Desert near Lancaster. The more he talked the more excited about the prospect he became. 'Why not, Clair? You can stay there till the police pick 'em up. Meantime—" he stole a glance at her, "maybe this trip won't hurt me either." Clair nodded. "All right." She squeezed his hand on the wheel. Tim swung the cftr around. "They might b« iipecting us to keep going west on highway 30. I'll turn south on highway 45, through Paducah. V.Yil talsc r e southwestern rout* to Uw coast." It was several hours later, on highway 45, headed south, when Tim was at ease and for the first time talking freely. Clair studied him a moment and then asked; "What happened to Al in France?" she asked. "Did that make you so — well — afraid of everything?" Tim thought long and hard of the events leading up to Al's death. This was a new thoupht. but he knew Al's death was not the reason for his cowardice. "No," said Tim "No. it couldn't have had anything to do with it." "You won't tell me what did happen?" "Nc. Clair. I couldn't." "Later?" "I don't know," said Tim. "Tf I change, somehow, I might tell." • » * BUT Tim Rogers knew of no way to change himself for the better. He thought of the misery he had caused Lorna and his son Billy—a decade of misery, because he was a coward. Tim resolved he would never knowingly cause Lorna and Billy more misery. This would mean abandoning Lorna and Billy. He realized that if he had to choose between himself and them—between finding his own manhood and inflicting more and greater suffering on them—he would prefer to take his cowardice with him to the grave. "This trip has done a lot for me, Clair," Tim said humbly. "I feel, for the first time, that I can meet danger without panic. Maybe I could change and go buck to where I belong, with Lorna and Bill. But I doubt if I'll ever be able to tell you what happened to Al. I'll never solve entirely the problem of my being a coward." 'Maybe you could solve it, it you had help," snid Clair. Tim watched her. She suspected he was responsible for Al's death. "I'll try," he said. In the night rushing past them, Clair Holinsky hoped that this lonely fat man beside her would somehow, in the long days ahead, find a solution before he was ovcrw!"' nirl.
