His hand slowed, but he kept bbing. He bent his head again. tee breathed easier. His father's koice was quiet, but unsteady. "What, Dad?"

Getting the car (had knocked bis parents off their tpins. He really had the upper ifaand now. He'd showed them. "Look at me, Ricky." Ricky looked up again, and this lime his head stayed up. "Why did you go to the bank and threaten Miss Myers? You didn't have to go behind my back to get your money." "I didn't go behind your back." Ricky answered, turning red. "I wanted my money, and I just went and got it." "And bought this car." "Yes." "I'm sorry you did it that way." Now hi* dad was going to try and make him fee! •shamed, - "Your mother and I talked things over after you rushed out of the house," Ricky's father continued. "We decided we were going to let you have a car. We thought you were old enough and mature enough to be trusted * you'd waited half a day. . . .' The only reason he's telling me this, Ricky thought, is because I've got a car. Sure, they were just about to let me have one! In another two years! "Now," bis father was saying, "The way you acted doesn't seem very mature to me. 1 don't think you can be trusted with a car." «I have one," Ricky said. "I bought it with my own money, so I guess it's mine." "You are 16 years old. You can't make a contract, if I don't want you to. The man who sold you the car can't enforce the contract if I want it revoked," * * * "DICKY had been half-hoping it ^ would be possible to return Hie car after establishing his independence with its purchase. But making a point of his being a child without authority to buy the car, made him determined to fight for it. •i don't want to take it back," Ricky said stubbornly. "H you* make me, I'll leave home." His father smiled somewhat bitterly. "All right, Son," he said softly. "I was going to do you the favor of letting you return the car, but maybe it will teach you a little lesson if I insist you keep the car." He's pitching a curve, Ricky thought. I'm set for it "I called Merle Connor," Mr. Madison went on. 1 found out that you contracted to pay $75 for a car that isn't worth $35. My first impulse was to keep you from being cheated. But since you are determined to prove your independence, I won't interfere. My boy, it is your car, and you're stuck with it." "That's all right with me," Ricky said. Hii father straightened his coat "Now . . . bow about your insurance? You know our state law. Either you carry Insurance or you prove that you have t financial ability of $10,000." •Well . . . FM jwt act infftt- aoce," Bkfcy said. "No insurance company wfii write you up," his father said. "Not until you're 21. Youl need me or some other adult to get that insurance for you. And even then there's a question whether you'll get it" "Suppose I don't get anr insurance?" Ricky demanded. «AH right," his father said. "Let's assume you are in an accident, someone is injured, and you are sued for damages. And well suppose the court upholds the j u d g m e n t—let's say for $20,000. "The first thmg that wffl happen, you'll lose your license and your car. There isn't much more that can be done until you're 21, but you reach manhood with a mortgage on your life. The people who have the Judgment against you have first dairo OB everything you own and everything you earn. It might take the rest of your life to pay it off." Ricky had no answer to that. They had him again. "TTOWEVER," his father eoo- **• tinued, 1 wouldn't allow you to drive without insurance. Not so much for your protection, as for the protection of anyone you might injure If I uae UM insurance factor to make you give up the car, you'll feel I tricked you. I want you to kMf> the car—if you can. But I alao want to be sure that you're not a menace to others. Of courw you'll have to pay for the insurance." "I'll pay it," Ricky mutt«t*d. <How much will it be?" "Around $50 a year." "If you get it for me, could I pay you back $1 a week?" "You have to pay on the car, you'll have operating expenses, repairs, a license to buy . ." "Well," Ricky said, "if I get th»t job at the grocery ttore 1 . .." "Get the job before you make any promises." hi* father Mid.
