CHARON'S father filled his '^ pipe, got it going, and leaned j on the table with his elbows. 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. i "In other words, in order to get a license, you have to prove I that you are as competent to (handle a car as any adult. | Right?" | "That's right." | Mr. Bruce puffed on his pipe, iwatchinf Ricky through the i smoke. "Why is it, then, that iteen-age drivers have the highest percentage of accidents of *ny age group?" "I didn't know they did." "They do. Are th«y dumber (than the rest of us?" ; "I don't think so." 1 "I don't either. Perhaps teen- lagers don't know how to handle tears as well as old ]*di«t and •grown men. Is that it?" Ricky smiled. "I think the average teen-ager can out-drive the average adult." "- "They're terrific," Mr. Bruce "said. "I know. Good reflexes, food eyes, good muscle control. All the things that make them food athletes and all that." "Well," Ricky said reluctantly, "1 suppose we drive pretty fast—" "That's not «he reason, Mr, Bruce interrupted. "I'm on the road a great deal and I drive fast Most people drive fast. There arc many accidents because at high spc«d, b"* *«*"" agers have more accidents than anyone else. Why?" Kicky shook his head. "Just b*d tack, I «Tv« been thinking, Bruce," Ricky's father said carefully, "and I agree with a great deal you've said. But let's bring it home. Ricky'i 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 is wrong, let's change th* law, but we can't penalize the responsible teen-ager for crimes tht 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 fo look around the town. H 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 for some new answers." • • • T>RUCE turned to Rickey's fa- -*-* ther. "Madison, I want to say something that I mean in & 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 places together, but not in Ricky's car. Ricky might be a good and careful driver, but I'm not willing to take the chance. As Ir-m as this tc?:i-age Sharon riding anywhere with Ricky or any other teen-ager." "DICKY was in his room, tight•*•*• lipped with anger. There was a knock on his door. "Come in," Ricky said sullenly. His father ; came in, in shirtsleeves, wearing i 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 I 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 speed- ling other than for kicks?" j "Sure," Ricky said. "You put i 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 club* around the country that have drag strips, and I've read about communities and police force* 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 timas, and cooperation with the law. Would that work in Dellville?" "We'd clobber the fuy that foultd it up," Ricky said. at •• Political Announcement The Courier News Is authorized to announce the following candidate for the Preferential Primary July 27.
