CX^NNOR scratched his unshaven chin. He had 3Ricky in his, pocket now. The •tiling was to keep the price down iio what he was sure the kid ^would be able to pay. It could <go up a little more. "Well," 3Merle said reluctantly, leaning against the coupe. "Sixty-five Avas the cash price. On terms, it •would have to be $75. Book work and all that stuff. And I think ttiat other feller might be back with a cash offer of $65. The one I told you about. I imagine ftie'll go tip another five. Sure would like to see you have it, of course, but I can't just give you $10, can I?" "I guess not," Ricky said. All h knew was that he had to have the car before it was bought out from under him. "I guess I can do it for $75." • "You won't regret it," Merle said, taking Ricky's $50 and tucking the bills in his overalls. "Clean that car up a little and you can probably turn right around and sell it for a hundred." Ricky followed Merle into the garage where he signed to pay the remaining $25 in 25 weeks, and the deal was over. It was 'Ricky's car. Merle took an ignition key from the nail where it had been hanging, and handed jt to Ricky. "She's all yours," he said in a tone of relief. "Don't 'drive too fast, now." Chuckling at his own joke, Merle went into the large part of the garage where he had a flat tire to fix. , Ricky looked at the tarnished key in his hand. He felt different. Like he'd come to Merle's garage a kid, and suddenly turned H* won't a Jud *or more. He had a car. He'd caught up with the other guys. He was as big and as independent as anybody . . . even his father. The difference between a kid and a man was something you had to discover for yourself. * * • WHEN Ricky walked out of the garage toward his car, he noticed tilings that had escaped his attention before. Now that he had $50 in the car and owed another $25, he saw for the first time that the tires were so bald the cord showed in patches on two of them. There was a sag to the left that suggested a broken spring, and an appearance of being out of line that indicated the car had been wrecked, and maybe had a sprung frame. He climbed in the car carefully, wiping his feet on the grass outside before placing them on the filthy floorboard. He held the key tightly between the thumb and forefinger of his right hand, and his hand trembled as he inserted the key in the ignition lock. He turned the key, shoved in his clutch and kicked the starter. It wouldn't start Merle flooked out of the garage. "What's the matter?" he yelled. "Can't you start?" "She won't catch." Ricky looked hopefully at the mechanic. Merle strolled toward the car with maddening slowness. He poked his head inside and looked at the dash. "For one thing," he said laconically, "you're out of gas. I had about a gallon in the tank, but I guess one of your friends must have took it." "Gas," Ricky said, feeling like fool. "Yeah." Ricky felt in hie pockets. Not even enough for a gallon. He'd hoped Merle would offer to fill the tank for free, as a gesture in honor of the purchase, but he was afraid to suggest that gen- LEAD PEOf^LE TME UPSTARTS THEY WON'T SPEND A TUPPENCE UNTIL FINAL EXAMS ACE OVER ' WONT EVEM ALLOW ME TO SPEAK TO THEM WHILE THEY'RE WEARING THOSE ABSURD TJ-UMK-BCNMIES/ This is th« third girl getting married this month!

Drum 12 Highway 61 at State Line Phone OSborne 3-8414 "How about adding a dollar's worth to my account?" Ricky asked, trying to sound casual. Merle hesitated. "Well, all right," he said, reaching for the hose. Ricky got back in his car with a feeling of relief. Once was all he'd need of Merle's cheap gas. After this, he would be getting the best ethyl gas from one oi the good stations, and after that, he'd be burning bis own fuel mixture. This time the car started. Ricky let it idle a moment to warm up. Also to give himself time to get up nerve to put the car in gear and drive away. It wasn't that he didn't know how to drive. He'd driven his friends' cars enough to have confidence in his ability. He didn't know where to go. . A happy inspiration struck him. The lake! * * * O"E started the car, driving toward the lake. In low gear be tromped on the gas pedal, tearing the insides of his car a* his wheels spun in the loose gravel. In second he held it wide open, trying to find out how fast it would go in that gear. Thirty- nine! A miserable, crawling, creeping, shuddering, wavering 39! The car kept trying to leap off the left side of the road, but h« gritted his teeth and fought it back. Another turn came up. Turns were frequent on this back road. He glared at it as though it were a personal enemy, Thit time like a race driver! He hit into the turn with inertia in full contempt of his attempts to pull his front wheels around. Because he could slid* he didn't roll, but he was sliding toward the ditch, his hands glued to the useless wheel. He felt his wheels leave gravel for grass. The rear wheels touched first, were slowed, and the front end of the car slammed around to head toward the fields. Momentum carried the car forward, throwing Ricky from side to side as the coupe left the road and headed into a shallow, broad ditch. SERVICE More Than 20 Years Training and Experience.
