And Jerry only adding to her worries! At least that was the way it looked the night he was picked up in a car driven by a hot-rodding friend and escorted home by the police.

And when his uncle offers to take him along to Alaska with the promise of a job for the summer working his gold claim, he accepts reluctantly, and though he is the one doing the favor! 026347
