KREAM KASTLE Walnut & Division Phone 3-8051 DRIVE-IN THE COWARD BY RAY 1APICA Copyright 195S by NEA XXII TIM looked out over the dawn- filled sea of sand and noticed a small cloud of dust forming on the road. He leaped down and ni.shed to the ranch house. Pop Hammond was fix;ng breakfast "About 10 miles off." Tim said. "FU RO down to the gate and keen 'em from coming through." "No, they won't be sure you're here. Maybe I can bluff 'em away." "It wr.'t work. Th^y mu?: have found the car." "Lci'a try it any.ay. You keep rr.o covered from the back at the reservoir so nobody can come up that way. If they start to shoot, remember they'll have only six shots apiece—eight in automat ics. So count 'em." "Okay," Tim said. Tim climbed to the top of the reservoir again. The dust cloud was less than a mile away. Now he could identify the black convertible. A quarter of a mile away, the car stopped, and ,two figures got out. As the car moved forward ajjain, the two men on foot split and began to circle the ranch. Tim called down to Pop. By now those inside the house were up. Tim could hear Pop directing everyone into one of the siraller. more isolated bedrooms. He could also hear Aunt Marie protesting.' Then he could hear no more because of the pounding in his temples. /«,,M, ?r s'.insrr. of fear shook h;. ! II-s throat dried up so liV:uly he couldn't swallow, He tr'ecl to lock his jaws to keep \v- teeth from chattering but 1; 'oc: He u*as still fighting himself when the convertible stooped at the gate. Ben Traskla ui "reel the pntc and drove i:V t ;e graveled driveway to the house. The car stopped again. Ron not out with a white '••>-•'- k'CK'Iiicf in hi« h*nd. Thk t* raised over his head. "Don't shoot." he called. * Pop stepped out on the veranda with the shotgun across his crippled arm. Ben stopped 25 yards away ami loo'.ted around. The reservoir was to one side and sli»htlv back of the house, and he couldn't see Tim atop the concrete lip. "MY brothers have come back for Mrs. Kolinsky. I couldn't stor ;h-m." "Get off my property." "You don't understand: Thev'rc out there on foot, trying to get behind the ranch house. If she takes the car. they'll never catch her " "Why didn't you stop them from coming back?" "Look." Ben Traskis pointeo to his face. In the early morning light, Pop could see bloody welts across it. "They did this to me. 1 tried to talk some sense into them—they want to kill, but it's crazy." "I don't trust you—any more than I'd trust your brothers." "You haven't got much time." Pop turned. "Clair." L Clair came out in a pink house dress She looked at Ben, who stood motionless. "You heard him?" Clair nodded. "Get in his car and drive to Lancaster as fast as you can," said Pop, Clair. looked from one man to the other, then without a word, ran across the grass to the car. But she had wailed too long. Before Clair could open the door of th« convertible, a shot rang out. Pop cried out and his shotgun clattered to the veranda floor. Pop pitched forward on his face. Tim turned at the shot, which had come from the side of the i house. So intent had Tim been on the scene below him,, that he had railed U *« Lou Tr*s,ui' creeping up Irom that side of the house. Tim whipped his gun down and fired without aiming. The shot went wi! 1 and Lou ducked back into the palm trees. But now. after Tim fired. Dan came up from the other side of the ranch house, covering Ben with a big revolver. • * • BEN TRASKIS fired as he whirled about. But the shot . never hit Dan, for Lou. coming out from the palm trees, fired simultaneously. Ben toppled headlong into the dichondra. Tim watched, sensing in this battle the same thing that had happened to him years before, when he had crippled his brother Hal. But these brothers were shooting guns. Tim flred twice, as fast as he could squeeze the trigger. And missed both times. The two Traskis brothers ducked back into the palm at the side of the house. This e Aunt Marie, Lorna and Clair time to drag Pop off the veranda into the living room. They closed and locked the door behind them. Tim jumped down off the reservoir, 10 feet to the ground. He sprawled awkwardly into th« dirt, rolling over. He was shaking so badly he had trouble getting up, and when he did he staggered around the corner of the reservoir on rubber legs. Yes, Tim was afraid, but he wasn't going to be a coward— not this time. When the women dragged Pop Into the house, they had overlooked the shotgun. In the excitement, they left it lying on the veranda. With only three shots remaining in his revolver, Tim had to get cither the shotgun or Ben's automatic if he was ?oing to do any more shooting after these shots were gone. Maybe the Traskises realized .he situation. At any .rate, they an idea about those guns, for suddenly Dan Traskis cam« out from behind a nearby palm ree and fired three times at Tim. 3»n missed, but the shots drovt Tim back around the corn*r «f ;h* ruervoir.
