He looked directly at Ricky. "The state gives teen-agers the right to drive if they pass the required written and road test, right?" Ricky nodded. "In oth«r words, in order tp get a license, you have to prove that you are as competent to ^handle a car » any adult. Bight?" "That's right" Mr. Bruce puffed on his pipe, watching Ricky through the smoke. "Why is it, then, that teen-age drivers have the highest percentage of accidents of any age group?" "I didn't know they did." "They do. Are they derober fcan the rest of us?" **I don't think so." *I "don't either. Perhaps teen- jagers dont know how to handle cars as well as old ladies and „ i men. Is that H?" Ricky smiled. "I think the .•average teen-ager can out-driv« rthe average adult." "They're terrific," Mr. Bruce said. "I know. Good reflexes, good eyes, good muscle control. All the things that make them good athletes and all that." "Well," Ricky said reluctantly, "I suppose we drive pretty fast—" "That's not the reason," Mr. Bnice interrupted. "I'm on the road a great deal and I drive fast. Most people drive fast. There are many accidents because of high speed, but teenagers have more accidents than anyone else. Why?" Ricky shook his head. "Just kick, I "I've been thinking, Brue»," Ricky's father said carefully, "and I agree with a great deal you've said. But let's bring it home. Ricky's a teen-ager, and we know he's more likely to have an accident than an adult. Yet, we can't refuse to let him drive because he might have an accident." "Wouldn't that be better than waiting until he has one?" "It might be safer, but would it be better? The way I look at it, as long as Iowa allows a 16- year-old to drive a car if he passes the tests, he has a right to drive. Unless his behavior is unlawful to the extent that the law can deprive him of his right. If the law if wrong, let's change th" law, but we can't penalize the responsible teen-ager for crimes the others commit You can't indict a generation." They're indicting themselves," Bruce said. "Look at the record. Arnie, what do you think?" "I think it's time I go look around the town." Arnie put his blue cap on his head. "That was good coffee, Mrs. Bruce.** He paused by the door, looking at the two families seated at the table. "We get another depression, the car killings slow down too. Or a big war. When all the young fellows are killing with guns, the highways get a little safer. Is a depression better? Or a big war? Maybe we got to look lor tome new answers." "DRUCE turned to Rickey's fa- ** ther. "Madison, I want to say something that I mean in a friendly way." -Yes?" Ricky's father looked surprised.. But they were old friends, and could speak frankly. "I just want you to see my position in this. I want our children to go placet together, but not in Ricky's car. Kicky might a good and careful driver, but I'm not willing to takj the chance. As Ion?; as this tcfl»-sge »S» bMLI Sharon riding anywhere with Ricky or any other teen-ager." "DICKY was in his room, tightlipped with anger. There was a knock on his door. "Come in," Ricky said sullenly. His father came in, in shirtsleeves, wearing slippers. "Too bad about Sharon," his father said, sitting on the bed. "There's other girls," Ricky answered. "I can see her father's point," Madison said. "If you were my daughter instead of my son, maybe I'd do the same thing. It isn't that I think less of you because you're a boy, naturally, but it's a different situation. Do you ever race with the others?" "Well, yeah, once in a while. You know how it is . . ." Ricky ( laughed apologetically. "One guy ; kind of chooses you, and you ... uh ... go along." "Do you ever have any reason I for racing or dragging or speeding other than for kicks?" "Sure," Ricky said, "You put speed equipment on a car and you have to test it somehow. To see if it's working right." "So you use the streets and highways." "Where else?" Mr. Madison looked thoughtfully. "Tell me, Rick, do you think you fellows would slow down on the streets and roads if you had a drag strip?" "Would we!" Rick exclaimed. "You're not just a-birding, Dad, Hey ..." A delighted smile appeared on Ricky's face. "What do you know about drag strips?" Madison chuckled. "More than you think. I've been reading your magazines, Ricky. Now I've read about these hot-rod clubs around the country that have drag strips, and I've read about communities and police forces that have provided a place for them, and supervised them. I've also noticed that wherever there is such a club with a strip, they pledge themselves to safe driving at all times, and cooperation with the law. Would that work m Dollvillc?" "We'd clobber the guy that fouled it up," Ricky said. By BILL WALKER ITS Mi RldHT r4C»<JH«0«. MV TKACTOfST IS FULLY INSURED WITH INSURANCE AGENCY Gfenco Bids.
