OD XXVII '"PHE policeman stepped back and looked at Ricky's coupe with a critical ey«. "Not fancy, but not too bad," he said. "It has possibilities." Ricky watched the policeman carefully, wondering what be was talking about. "It hasn't been in the papers yet," the policeman said, standing by Ricky's window, "but around Thanksgiving the Allied Auto Council is going to sponsor a hot-rod show here. The idea is to build up the constructive side of the interest you kids have in hopping up cars. There'll be prizes for the best engines, the best design and all that Interested?" "Sounds right down my alley," Ricky said, as the idea began to burn inside him. "We want to get kids from all over the state to enter," the policeman added. "And from the people who come, we might have the beginning of a state hot-rod organization that would keep the sports angle and get rid of the recklessness." "Where do I sign uo?" The policeman laughed. "I'll take your name and see that you get on the list. One thing, though. In order to qualify for the show, you've got to have a clean record. Any moving violations between the time you sign and the show, and you're out" "Don't worry about that," Ricky'said earnestly. "If you knew what a big chance. . . . You see, I'm going to go into business doing ... I'll keep clean. And how!" "Fine," the police officer s«id, Teaching into the coupe to give .Ricky a friendly pat on the •houlder. "We'll look for you." He turned away to go back to lUs prowl car. . Ricky caught a flash of moving yellow behind the policeman. ,11 was Link's convertible, moving put dowlf M Link looked toward Ricky with a mocking grin on his face. After Link came Chub . . and Sherm! With his DTA sticker on the windshield. "DICKY sat back with his shoulders sagging as the policeman walked away. Suddenly he hit the steering wheel with his fist. "That dumb Sherm!" "What's the matter. Ricky?" Sharon hadn't noticed the "other Dellville cars. "Just as we're getting somewhere. . . Sherm's up ahead with Link and Chub, and he's got a DTA sticker on his car If he gets in any trouble, what will that make us look like?" "Sherm doesn't mean any harm." "I'd like to warn him," Ricky said. "But I don't know where they're going, and I don't dare try to catch them." "He'll be all right, Ricky." "I wouldn't put it past Link to figure out something, just so the DTA would get a bad name. He's got Sherm along for a purpose." Ricky started his car and drove slowly toward the drive-»in movie, looking for his friends. He didn't have to look long. Several blocks on they came out of a side street, and fell in behind him. Ricky laughed, relieved. "They're following us," Sharon said. "Yeah. I know Link's idea. He thinks he'll stick with us and spoil our date. But this is one time I'm glad to s«* him try-" When Ricky turned in at the drive-in, his friends were right behind him. He picked an open row, so they could come up on both sides of him. Sherm looked shame-faced as Ricky opened the door of his car and slid in beside him. "Hi, Rick. We thought we'd keep you company/' Thai's all right with me." Ricky laid. He moved closer to Sbtrm, grabbing hi» big friend i oy me arm. "i just - T ant to ten you one thing, Sherm, You're carrying the DTA sticker. The cops know about it They're beginning to respect it, too. If you get in any trouble while you're carrying that sticker, I'll wring your big neck. It would mean the end of our club." "I wouldn't do anything to hurt the club," Sherm protested. "Don't let Link suck you into anything." "I gotta follow him if I'm with him, Ricky. You know that." "Then don't be with him. Be with me Follow me." "You've got a date." "You bet I have," Ricky said. "Right around Thanksgiving. Arid 1 aim to keep it Now look . " "The movie's starting," Sherm said. "It's the cartoon. Shut up." Sherm was staring intently at the huge screen Ricky slid his hand cautiously along the dash until his fingers closed around Sherm's keys. He pulled the ignition key and withdrew his hand. "See you later. Sherm." • * • "DICKY walked back to his car, slipping Sherm's keys in his pocket There was more than one way to protect the good name of the DTA, • *"I thought you were never coming back," Sharon said. "I had to straighten Sherm out" Ricky looked from left to right Chub was parked close on bis left, Link to the right Instead of watching the screen they were staring into the coupe. "Picture's up ahead," Ricky t said to Chub. Chub grinned. "Might be a better show in your coupe." Ricky slumped behind his wheel. "I'm getting tired of those guys. For two cents I'd " "Don't let them get your goat." Sharon said. "They'll get tired of being pests if we ignore them." "Next thing I put on this coupe will be Venetian blinds," Ricky said savagely. "Watch the movie," Sharon said soot'Mngly, "That's what we came for " (T« Be NOW OPEN IN OUR New Location So. Hiway 61—Blytheville SM fnTMAT TR ESSfjCO.
