Sharon had typed it, and Ricky, as founder .and first president of the Dellville (Timing Association, had been chosen to present it to the city •council. Shortly before the council wa scheduled to meet, all the members of the DTA gathered in the Dellville Drug, some with their girl friends. The place was jammed with non - purchasing patrons. The petition was in a brown jmanila folder, and lay on the icounter of the soda fountain. iRicky stood near it, and Sharon istood next to him. There was a (loud hum of excited conversation, laughs, yells arid loud shop talk. iBig things were happening in old [Dellville. Sharon looked at her wrist watch. "You'd better get started 'in a minute or two." Ricky looked around for something he could use to bang for attention. Right next to him, oblivious to the noise, Sherm was deep in another comic. "Hey, Sherm," Ricky said. "I need something to use for a gavel. Let me have your head, will you?" Sherm reached in his pants pocket and pulled out some change. He held his hand out to Ricky without looking up from his book. "How much do you need?" Ricky whooped and slapped him on the shoulder. There being nothinf to pound with, Ricky *ot up on one of the stools and cupped his hands over his mouth. "Hey! Shut up!" L The ooiae lessened tt» a normal hum. Ricky leaned down and picked up the petition. "Has everybody read the petition?" "Yes!" "Remember, you guys," he shouted at the crowd, "you gotta stick to what you signed. No chopping corners on our part. Understand?" "Yo!" "Now do all members have their membership cards? The ones we mimeographed." "Yo ... yo ..." "Now all you guys with cards . . . have you all paid your dues?" There was a loud mass groan. "If you haven't paid, Sharon will take your dough." 'T'HE council was already seated at its table. Mayor Travis, a red-faced retired coal dealer, sat at their head. Buell Jones, the city clerk, sat to his left busily writing. Two council members, Gus Vorkle and Charles Trumm, sat to Ricky's left as he faced the table. The other two. George Reynow and Ricky's father, sat to his right Something like two hours and 35 minutes after the council began its meeting, it was ready to hear tht petition. Ricky was half asletp, his throat parched, his head splitting when the big moment came. The mayor tapped with his gavel. "I believe you had a petition, young man. . . ." Ricky stood up, his legs numb. 'Yes . . . sir. I have x a petition that I would like to read at this time." Ricky's voice sounded dead and flat, just as had the others. 3y now there were no more than half a dozen members of the DTA n the room. Arnie VanZuuk had come in, and wa* fitting to one side, aoaktd with sweat and doz- ng, his hands folded over his stomach. 'II you will just Ale the peti- tion with the city clerk," the mayor said, "it will be read and considered by this council in due time. I am -sure, Now if there is no further business . . ." "Mr. Mayor." It was Ricky's father, his voice crisp. "It was understood that the council would hear .'the petition tonight. This petition is no surprise to us. and these young people have waited patiently for their turn to bring their business before this council. I believe we owe them the right to listen to what they have to say." "What's the council think about it?" the mayor grunted. "Let him read it," Trumm said, yawning. "Get it over with." "AH right, boy," the mayor said. "Get on -with it." Ricky cleared his throat. "This petition is being made in the name of the Dellville Timing Association. It is signed by 18 members." Ricky looked at the council. The mayor was sitting back in his chair, breathing through his mouth. Vorkle was doodling on a pad in front of him, Trumm's head was back and a cigaret dangled from his lips. Reynow sat slumped in his chair, a look of tired suffering on his face. Only Ricky's father Booked interested. He smiled at Ricky, and nodded for him to begin reading. OICKY wheezed through the petition and then carried it to Buell Jones. Sharon gave him a quick smile of praise as he returned to his seat, but he was too tired to smile back. He was so tired that what he had read didn't make sense even to him. Mayor Travis roused himself and blinked at the council. "You heard the petition. What is your pleasure?" Gus Vorkle put down his pencil. "I heard it. What I want to know is what it's all about? I couldn't make head or tail out of all that mumbo-jumbo." "What's this about the Cosgrove road being use.i as a race track?"
