"Well e«ne bi«k for It Come «or Ricky stood by trying to kx* cool and r«l«x«d »ad daring, his thumbs hooked in his belt. He wasn't going to let Lmk take the Jead away from him. -Well take |jou and your ear, St*rm. m ,u*rf you." ! -You'll be caught," Link »aid. i "Maybe. Yo« other guys g« (gone. Meet you at the north city limits. We'll go west now, and circle. See you!" He sprinted for Ms ear and peeled it around in a tight circle, coming in behind 8h«rm. The •then were already on their way. With Ricky pushing, Sh§r» turned west, and then Ricley opened up ac they led tor the 'eity limits. Ricky didn't take any chances —«n being caught by tht copi. He pushed fast, and before many blocks he wa« shoving Sherra ahead at better than 50. He wa* •lightly to the left of center behind Sherm, so he could see around him, and that tended to twist Sherm, but Ricky mew Shenr, emild handk the car, and he bore down. Tbey tow acroM Ihi «r MM with the sound of the police siren behind him. Sherm's hand went up in the air, to signal for a right turn. Ricky backed off, giving Sherm a chance to slow down and make the turn. He followed, feeling his wheels leave paying and hit dirt Thee Sherm signaled him up again, and he made contact and pushed Sherm again. He knew why Sherm had chosen the dirt road. As the two cars sped swaying over the rough surface, they raised a thick cloud of dust, a choking, blinding screen that would shield them. T>ICKY himseK wae almost -"• blinded, but he kept his eyes glued to Sherm's tail-lights. Sherm would give the brake* a warning feather touch if be had to, but there were always emergencies. A bad break and they'd have to-dig him out of the back of Sherm's neck with a nutpick. Ricky chanced a glance to the rear, but there was no sign of other auto lights. He slowed his rate of speed, and ia a little while Sherm signaled for another turn. Again Ricky backed off and followed Sherm into a long, tree- lined drive that ended at a farm house. They turned off their lights and parked in the shadows, where the dark cars melted into the night Ricky turned off his engine. The two boys got out «f their cars, stretching, wiping dust from their eyes, chuckling softly. The night was still. There were no sounds of pursuit. "Well, we done her," Sherm said, his big frame shaking with pleased laughter. "A couple of timer I thought you were gonna get my head for a new bood ornament." "I didn't Me anything," Ricky said. "1 know. If you had seen what I tew, you'd have turned back to meet those cops." They raised toe boo* of U* car and looked at the engine with the aid of a flashlight "Here it is, Sherm," Ricky said. "Your coil got disconnected. No wonder we couldnt get you started. As simple as that." Sherm tried his car again and the engine caught at once. "We'd better shove," Sherm said. "The guys will be waiting." The five cars met at the north city limits, and with Ricky in the lead they headed south, down Second Street, long Des Moines 1 unofficial drag strip. They drove steadily and slowly, just at the legal limit The prowi car picked them up as they were entering the downtown area. Again it was the same policeman who had talked to Ricky before. "Hello, Officer," Ricky said cheerfully. "We're leaving right on time." The policeman looked at him coldly. "Where have you been since I saw yon last?" -North," Ricky said. "We thought w«'d go tip to Ankeny for a sandwich. It's easier to find a parking place there." "I don't suppose you could possibly be the people who were making trouble in the west end of town?" "What kind of trouble?" "Maybe throwing firecrackers.* "All rods look alike at nigh|" Ricky said. "Must be a hundred just like the one Tm driving." /~\N impulse the policeman ^ walked back to Link's car. "Where have you fellows been tonight?" he asked Link. "No place," Link answered. "You wouldn't by chance be the group that was ia Ankeny tonight?" "Ankeny?" Link echoed, scratching his chin. "Honest, Officer, we weren'Cas close ac 10 miles to Ankeny!" The policeman stood back while the five cars drove away at a discreet crawl. His lips were tight, his expression one of extreme exasperation. "Next time, the book!" he shouted after tho departing rods.
