KREAM KASTLE Walnut & Division Phone 3-8051 DRIVE-IN THE COWARD BY RAY 1APICA 195! b, NE> Servke. l XVI THE sun-scared Mopve Desert stretches more than 200 miles Irom the Arizona and Nevada borders westward across southern California to the Tchachaiiis. In July it is a furnace, with temperatures rising to 125 in the shade and as much as 150 degrees on the surface. And there is little -shade, except from the small crooked Jofhua tree or the flowering yucca or the gianl saguaro cactus. It was 9 o'clock in the morning, and the sun was already scorching hot behind them when thej descended the San Bernardino Mountains in the car they had borrowed from Grandpa . • The ranch lay some 60 miles laway, not far from Lancaster. close in to the San Gabriel Mountains to the south. Los Angeles and the Pacific Ocean were 60 miles beyond. He had come .« long way, Tim thought— 3000 miles from coast to coast in a little over three weeks. Had he itound what he sought? He shook his head negatively »ind blinked hard to case the Blare in his eyes. He looked at Clair on the opposite side o< the seat She sat back, relaxed for the first time since their escape Between them little Sharon. green eyes still wide with wonder at the flitting countryside, watched the hot ribbon of con' cretc stretching ahead. Tiny beads of perspiration had formed on Glair's upper lip. She opened her brown eyes, saw his gaze upon her and smiled. He 1 pulled a handkerehvet out and •>\\ iped his forehead. "Be there soon," he said, "if ; 1 don't get lost out here." He .'. motioned toward the bleak dcs- ..erl ahead. Cltlr shook h«r head. "Hop* :'it's cooler at the ranch." 'The* she lay back In the seat again ana thought oJ the post UUM I weeks with satisfaction. The I metamorphosis in Tim had been I remarkable. He had lost 25 or •)0 pounds on her strict diet. The layer of fat under his chin had disappeared. With less meat on his face, his eyes looked bigger The piggish look was gone. His bleary red-streaked eyes were clear now. The crow's feet had disappeared around the corners. Despite the long hours behind the wheel, he looked rested, strong and healthy. She thought of the three weeks of tension and danger. Tim had driven farther, faster and longer than he had ever driven in his life, he told her. And he didn't break, although several times Clair thought he was about to. Once early in the trip in Little Rock two men took a cabin next to theirs in the middle of the night Their voices sounded like Dan's and Lou's. Tim got so panicky he dropped the suitcases and refused to go back for them as they crept out of their cabin before dawn. And again near Tucson when they were forced off the road by a blue motor car and blew a tire in an irrigation ditch. Clair was encouraged at the calm way Tim reached over, opened the glove compartment and took .out his 38 But within a moment his i-.and was trembling so hard he couldn't open the door to get out Fortunately a moving van manned by two young giants stopped to help them, and the blue car never came back, ohc had no way of knowing whethet it really had been the Traskises. CLAIR had tried to help Tim find himself on that long trip across the continent. She insisted on what she called "Intensive relaxation" such as swimming and •ightaetlni. That was why it had taken them three weeks to crow the continent and why they were still OB Utt toad. Once or twice each day. whUe looking at her slim daughter beside her, Clair would twinge at the thought of how recklessly she was gambling with the lives of other people. Then, when she stole a glance at Tim and noted how he had changed, she fcit that what she was undertaking was worth the risk. So she kent on, confident that at any time she wished, she coviUl put an end to the grim game with a telephone call to the police or the FBI. They had spent the night in a double cabin of a motel near San Bernardino. Though they were only several hours' drive from their destination, they had decided to lay over this last night in order to avoid any mountain driving in the dark. Tim had had a taste of driving on dangerous curves in Arizona and he had the shakes so badly that Clair had to take over the wheel for a time. While Tim was servicing the car, Clair slipped away and made a call—to the FBI. She sighed n relief. At last it was over! • • * NOW the Mojave Desert stretching out before them .under the enormous hot blue sky saddened Tim Rogers, for it meant the end of their journey. He knew the trip had helped him. All he had to do was look in a mirror. He knew lie had gained much from his three-week association with Clair to help him later. How much he couldn't tell until the first test. But it had been a completely new and vital experience for him—these three weeks cut ofT from their little separate worlds. No matter how many times he was frightened during the day by a face or a car or a voice that resembled one of the Traskis brothers, he found numerous little pleasures with Clair Silly as it made him feel to think about it, he remembered with joy the touch of her hand« or the feel of her waist when he helped her out of the car or the perfume In her hnir when once he kissed her. Tim had d»r«d kiss her only once. W«s he in love with her? (To Be Continued 1 'I used to come to the library to make dates—its my own fault I got interested in books'" Trick or treat?"
