A tight with I>lnk Allcr result*. * * * XIII T^HEY looked at each other and smiled. "You ... uh ... got any plans for the evening?' Ricky asked. I "Nothing special." | "Want to go roller-skating?" : Sharon nodded, "My skates are home." "We'll pick them up. How about Selmar? It's late to go to Des Moines." "I like Selmar's rink. I wish -we had one in Dellville." "You know good old Delviile. The nothing town." : Just like that, without working tat it, Sharon was his girl. Reaching home, Ricky went through the house like a whirlwind, taking the steps three at a time on the way up, coming down in three big jumps. "Ricky!" his father yelled from the living room. Ricky went into the living room carrying his skates, his face beet red. "Dad . . . Mom . . . I'm going skating at the Selmar rink. ... uh ... I'm taking Sharon. . . . 'Bye. ... I won't be late." For a long moment Ricky's parents looked at each other. Then they began to laugh. "Sharon's a nice girl," said Ricky's mother. "I know," Madison said. "Sweet and pretty. Anyway, I think .Ricky is suddenly going to be less of a problem. Wait and see. He'll be yelling for a chance at college." "I'm glad he chose Sharon," Mrs. Madison said. Mr. Madison picked up the Des Moines paper and looked at |he front page. It showed the o iMpmi» fcr •*&> Sc" picture of a smashed cor, and the headline, TEEN-AGER KILLED, THREE HURT IN WRECK "This takes the fun out of it," Ricky's father said. * * * THCKY and Sharon skated well together. Side by side, holding hands, they matched stride for stride in an effortless, gliding circle. When they knew the last dance was coming up Sharon sensed the change in Ricky. She could feel by his arm that he was tense. He was looking around at other couples, and when some of them left the floor, he suddenly guided her to the sidelines where they removed their skates. He went out as fast as he could pull her along. They heard several motors starting, and Ricky groaned. "We'H be the last ones out of here!" Ricky had the car started in a flash. Lights were going on all around them, and cars were moving. Ricky shifted into low and shot ahead. Cars of every description, from every corner of the lot. were leaping and bucking across the parking lot. Clouds of dust rolled up from under spinning wheels. Horns honked, tooted and blsrtted. "Hang on!" he ">uted. With his thumb pressing the horn he drove his coupe into the center of the pack. Dumpy shapes of other rods loomed up suddenly, then faded; the roar of straight pipes was deafening. Ricky bore down steadily, shooting through holes between cars. In the din of motors and iorns and shouts there was an occasional blunt sound as un- ucky drivers tangled fenders. Ricky was hunched over the wheel, his head forward, his eyes wide, his lips pulled back in a grin of wild excitement A car loaded with boys and girls tried to cut across Ricky'i line of travel. Hie horn blasted and be drove forward, happily aggressive. "Give, crazy . . . give!" Ricky yelled. The other car gave, and tie shot past in a burst ol triumphant speed, A coupe ISce hi§ own appeared at his side, holding with him hub to hub. He was •being chosen. He cracked the ga* and shot ahead. "Rickyyyyy!" He didn't even hear h«r. Tb* race was on. They would hav« to stop when they reached the highway, and the winner wotfld be the one who backed off last. Ricky was like one hypnotized as he hurtled through the dust toward the highway. Then, luckily, the other driver backed off. Ricky pulled his foot from the gas pedal. Second gear and quick stabs at the brake brought him sliding to a stop just as he reached the highway. Ricky saw a small break in highway traffic and nosed into it. The car he cut off honked. Ricky laughed derisively, and shoved the gas pedal to the floor. Ricky laughed. "Guest we showed 'em." CHE looked at him with widened eyes that were seriou* and afraid. "I told you, Ricky. I didn't like you when you tried to show off. I still don't" "I wasnt showing off," Ricky protested, grinning. "Ricky, listen. Slow down at let me out." -I ... all right..." He cut his speed, but pouted like a child. A moment later a new sedan swept by them, its red tail-lights pulling away rapidly. "Now that guy will go around bragging that his car took a rod," Ricky complained. "Grow up, Ricky," Sharon said. Ricky's right hand dropped away from the steering wheel. He moved it in the darkness until it touched Sharon's hand. Then he paused, waiting, his heart pounding. There was a slight answering pressure. The speedometer indicated 45, then 40. A car swept p*st, honking, Ricky hardly cared. (I* • Political Announcement The Courier News Is authorized to announce the following candidate for the Preferential Primary July 27.
