They had not needed to shift any tires. All they had needed to do was to take this and the other spares, pump them up, arid put them on their own jeep. They had done a lot of work for no purpose because they had just barged along and not used their heads. Then Ish, suddenly recognizing his own stupidity, strangely gained a new pleasure. Joey, was the one A T Jw had seen!. But by now it was time for lunch. * • * ''THE boys, Ish was glad to notice, were in a hurry to get back to work at the car. They had apparently begun to feel a little of the intoxication that was likely to kelp ' you pick ollt the ood „„, come from a mastery over power-.j NoWi i hough _ we , d beller gg . t. XXII T-TE pressed the starter-button. There was a long grunt. Then Islowly the engine turned! The gasoline tank was empty, [like most of them these days. Probably their caps were not air-tight, or else the gasoline seeped through 'the carburetor—Ish did not know. They found gasoline in a drum, iand poured five gallons into the tank. Ish put in fresh spark plugs. He primed the carburetor, feeling a little proud that he knew enough to do so. He got into the seat, sel the choke, snapped the ignition on ag.iin, and tramped on the starter button. Tlie motor started!' In the same display room there was one of the usual tire-racks well raised above the floor. But the tires had been standing upright for so long that they had sagged a little under their own weight, and the rubber, where it had rested against the rack, was badly indented. Such tires, even though they might last for a few miles, held obviously little possibility for a long run. By searching carefully, they finally found some tires which had been resting on their sides, and these seemed to be in better condition. They found a jack, and raised 'the first wheel from the ground. Even to get the wheel oft" was a struggle, for the nuts had begun to rust to the threads. Just as they were pausing, tri- •*umphanl but tired, fsh heard Jo«y calling to him from across the garage. ^ Joey was pointing at the spare wheel of one of the jeeps. "Look, Daddy," he said, "why couldnU you use that one?" All Ish could do was to burst out laughing. "Well, boys," he said to Dick and Bob, "that's the time we made fools of ourselves!" The tire on the spare wheel had (been suspended in !he air all Ihese i years, and it was already on »ahe stacks. Joey said noUu.ig, but! He himself was a little tired, and a new idea was shaping in his mind. "Say, boys," he said, "Bob and Dick, I mean. Do you think you can go back and shift those wheels by yourselves?" "Sure," said Dick. "What I mean is—well, Joey Is too HtUe to be much use, and I'm tired. It's only four blocks to the City Library from here. Joey can go with me. Want to, Joey?" Joey was already on his feet with the excitement of the idea. The other boys were happy to get back to the tires. As they walked toward the library, Joey ran ahead in his eagerness. It was ridiculous, thought Tsh, that he had never taken Joey there before. But all this matter OUT OUR WAY ly J. R. Wllli.mi FRECKLES AND HIS FRIENDS »* e Ar / A CROCODILE...
