But whea the Idea w»» pre- neiited t# the eltr eo«»cn, which •woald authorize the nae of an Aid road for cftr temting;. the idea wa* voted do'wit. * * * xvin drove around the Defl- ville town square at dusk, not cars, but like a file of jungle cats on the prowl. There were five cars, and tonight Ricky Madison's black •coupe was in the lead. Behind Ihim were th« other rods. Link Jin his yellow convertible, Jerry Jin a gray Mercury club sedan, fchub in a black Ford Tudor, and Sherm in his maroon Plym- icuth sedan. Their motors sounded (like, a group of fighter planes Sdling at the head of a strip. Hearing the motors, Arnie Van- tZuuk pushed himself to his feet land stood just inside the door of ibis front office at the city jail. Me watched the cars go around «nd around the square,, a thought- iul look on his grizzled, b«avy dface. Another year or two would make a difference, Arnie thought as h<e MW them park. Another year or two and some of them would be going in service, or getting married. Marriage was best. As soon as the first one married, it broke up the gang. Soon another married, and then another. And all of a sudden instead of wild boys he had young fathers who took their little ones to Sunday school. Ya. . . . Soon they were fathers «nd they would come to him to complain about how their little ones were in danger from the wild driving of the new t*«n- tgers. Ricky got out and went to «tand on the sidewalk in front of his rar, thumbs hooked in his belt. The other* joined him, forming a noufh stood with hunched shoulders, staring at the trees in the square. Link squatted on his haunches. Jerry, his hands pressed against the small of his back, looked at the sky. Chub put his weight on one leg and toyed with a knife that shot out its blade at the touch of a button. The click of the darting blade sounded regularly, monotonously, and they listened to it, not knowing why. Sherrn stared at the tips of his boots and whistled one note over and over. > They waited, and listened, knowing that nothing would happen, hoping hopelessly that something might. Something was wrong with Dellville. "TJELLVTLLE had become cold. And from the time they had bought their cars, it had become hostile. Ricky finally moved toward the door of the drugstore. The others fell in behind him. They went in and took possession of the first five stools at the soda fountain. Sherm, last in line, pulled a new comic book from the rack as he went by and settled himself to read. Black-haired, aggressive Link; round-faced Chub; wavy-haired Jerry; thin, ^brooding Ricky; placid, husky Sherm. With the exception of Sherm, lost in the world of the comic book, these boys who differed in appearance shared a similar inner resentment The world was against them, Mid they wanted to carry the war to society. "Des Moines?" Ricky asked. "Why not?" "Wt've got some firecrackers left over from our last run down to MiMourl," Jerry Mid, hi* handsomt features showing • look of innocence. Chub watched his knife blade flick in and out. "Let's not give a b*d ttaa*. W* abut '«* off around here, hell get a lot ol complaints." "So what?" Ricky challenged. "Arnie's a good guy." "Corne off it, man. Worrying about a cop's feelings. . . ." "Arnie ain't just any cop," Jerry said. "He's been pretty decent with us. 7 * "He sure backed us up on th« timing-association deal, didn't he? The minute they mentioned his job, he chickened out on us." "All right. But are we going to be better oft* if they fire Arnie and get some guy in here who's always giving us a bad time?" "I didn't say we ought to give Arnie a bad time," Ricky saicL "I'm just saying a cop's a cop. And they're all the same. If you're young, and you're driving a car, everything you do is wrong." » * • T INK slapped at a fly that was walking on the counter. "The only way to get by with driving a rod is to buy the factory rods that cost five thousand bucks. Look at the way they've hopped up Caddys and Lincolns and Chryslers and other cars. The same way we do it Only when we do it, it's some kind of crime, but when the factory builds them it's automotive progress." "Yeah," Ricky agreed indignantly. "Old Ous Vorkle was shooting off his mouth in the barbershop yesterday about how fast his new car could go. And he was raising Cain about u« speeding.** "It all depends," Jerry said, "whose big fat ox is gored." "Boy, I feel like goring somebody's ox tonight," Ricky said. What do you say, guys? How about a run to Des Moines." "I'm with it," Link said. "Let's *>•" They dismounted from th« leather-topped stools and went out to their cars. They stopped for a moment on the sidewalk, breathing in the disturbing fragrance of th« country night. The sweetness of the air made th« darkened town seem unbearable. "Keep your girls at home," Ricky said to the darkness, "Sea if we care." Exclusive Dealers for CENTURY SPRAYERS See Us Before You Buy! Byrum Implement Co. 118 E.
