ARNI1 VANZUUK stood out•"• side the police station waiting hopefully for a little breeze to make the night more bearable. A huge mass of sweat and discomfort, he closed his eyes at he laboriously breathed in the heavy air and listened. He opened hi« eyes at the sound of footsteps. A moment later Ricky's father joined him. Madison was wearing a pair of striped wash pants and a short- sleeved sport shirt. "Evening, Arnie. 1 * "Evening, Mr. Madison." -It's a hot night." "Y*. You can hear the earn grow tonight, I bet." The slender bank e a s h i e r seemed troubled. He looked pale and uncertain in the light that streamed from the jail window and reflected an hie long balding bMd and rimleat flas***. "Have you a*aa UM bopt to- niffht, Arnie?" "Earlier. They drowt toward Dei Moinae." 1 dont like it," Madison said, looking in the direction the boys had taken. "They been pretty mad since the council turned them down," Arnie said. "And not having girls." "I know. And when they're angry it's no time for them to be on the road—taking M out ta other*.* They Uttened for a moment, uneasy and apprehensive "I—I wandtr," Madiiee bafan uncertainly, "tt you might baft any ideas, Arnit."

I said when he got his car that I'd take it away if he abused the privilege of driving it I could do it, and he'd be safe, I suppose. But it's not the answer. The kids tried to meet •0 halfway and were turned down. I suppose it's up to us to find some constructive way to handle this situation.** "I don't know," Arnie said. "1 don't know if we ever find a magic answer for everybody. It's like with the doctor. You get a shot of penicillin, it makes you well. I take one, it make* me sick." Arnie held up his big hand for silence. From far away they heard the rods coming around the last S-turn, opening "up as they headed down the last long hiH onto the flat Arnie's head jerked slightly as he counted each new motor. "Five," he said, with relief. "Listen to them coma," Madison said, shaking his head. "It's crazy . . . crazy . . . don't they want to live?" "You and me," Arnie said, "wa know how many years we got if we're lucky But them young one* . . . each thinks he's gonna live forever, no matter what happen* to anybody else. It ain't they don't want to live. Thar don't believe they can die." * * * 1>ICKY drove home slowly, turned in at the drive and cut his engine. There was a light in the living room where his father probably was reading. And a light to «h« kitchen. As ha toakad, hi* mother passed m front of the kitchen window. Then he thought about the Des Motoea trip. M just came to him —the wandering if the boy in the Butok might live in a home like this, might have a father in the living room, a mother working alar* to the kitchen. Waiting for him to come home. Not what be bad nm into. How would MB own foHu fed if whan ha was out a gang of guys ran him off the road and foul«d-uD the engine?
