''We've got this timing association we just formed, and we need a place to run our drag races. The idea is, if the city lets us have a place for the races, we'd pledge not to race or break any laws on the highway. And our members have to have their cars inspected for safety, and abide by . . .** "Just a minute, young fellow," George R e y n o w interrupted. **What you were saying, you want the city to turn one of its roads over to you for a race track. If •we don't, you'll race on all the highways. Sort erf a blackmail proposition, Fd say." "And it's about time you young fellows got it through your heads *o obey the laws," the mayor added. "You don't come up here and ten us which laws you'll iobey and which you won't I guess not." "You're not being fair!" Ricky's dtather shouted, his sharp face taut and angry. "I explained this proposition to all of you, and you all seemed to agree with it." "You're prejudiced because (you've got a boy here speaking This piece," Gus Vorkle said. "The more I think this over, the more I'm against it The ide* of the city providing a race track! What we want to do is get rid cf this hot-rod driving, not encourage it If we give 'em a track, it will look like we're telling them to build hot cars. We'll have every crazy soupecl-up jalopy in the state coming down here to race. I don't sec it" "But you don't understand! (Ricky cried. "If it's supervised ,. . . if w« hav* » place, we won't ;want to use the highways. . . . K's tor safety . . ." "35oy, you're the one who doesn't understand," the Mayor said. "It's about time you and all the others like you understood that we're sick and tired of these hot rods. If something isn't done we'H see that the legislature raises tbe driving age. Then where'll you be?" George Reynow pursed his mouth into a prim, tight circle. "Seems to me the young people of this town don't appreciate anything wholesome. Dellville opened a recreation center where these young folks could get off the streets, but they never went near it. My wife used to supervise there. Said the only thing these boys wanted to do was annoy the girls. Now they're asking us to provide them with a race track. I think a curfew would do them more good." * * * "DICKY'S father was about to renew his argument for the boys when he noticed Ricky moving toward the council table, a stubborn, fighting look on his flushed face. Madison waited to hear what his son had to say, proud of the way Bicky was fighting for his idea. "Mr. Mayor," Ricky said, "I don't think I made myself very clear. Maybe it's my fault. We're not asking for a race track, and we're not trying to blackmail the city either. We're trying to help solve a problem." He supposed they were listening. They didn't interrupt ir We also know that teen-ager drivers have a lot of accidents," Ricky continued. "That's why we formed the Dellville Timing Association. It's to promote safe driving in safe cars. And it's also to give ns a chance to experiment with cars and engines and leam something. That's why we want what we call a drag strip. To give us a chance to work on our cars, and have competitions, and make it worth while for everybody to drive safely. A drag race is an acceleration race. It tests cars. They've done it in other places with good results, and we'd like to do it here. Otherwise we know there'H b« drags in the streets and on tb« 'highway." Gus Vorkle shook bis head. "That's just a new way of saying what you said before. You want the city to give you a race track and encourage hot-rod driving." "The recreation center was fine for the little kids," Ricky said. "But we're too big to sit around and play checkers." Mayor Travis banged his gavel on the table. "It won't do any good to sass tbe council, son." "I'm not sassing," Ricky said. | "I'm trying to explain." He i looked around helplessly and saw jArnie. "Arnie," Ricky said. "What do you think about our idea?" Arnie had been all for the idea, but now that the council had turned against it be bad to be careful. A. couple of them thought he was too old and fat and lazy to be a policeman anyway. "Who knows?" Arnie said. "Could be a good idea. Worth a try, maybe." "You told me the other day it would make your job easier," Ricky said. * * » pHARLES TRUMM snortecL ^ "Part of our trouble in this town is a policeman who's looking for ways to make his job easy." Arnie regarded Trumm mildly with his blue eyes. "You try taking that tired prowl car and running down a full-race Merc," Arnie said. The Mayor tapped with hit gavel. "You have heard the petition. All in favor of the race track say aye." "Aye!" Ricky's father spat th« ; word out angrily. ! "Opposed signify by the usual 'sign." The other councilmen grunted their negative vote. "Nays have it Motion is defeated. If there is no further business before the council, w« stand adjourned." The gavel tapped. The meeting was over.
