"You're gettin' to be 
       a pest."

41
"Don't forget we got
a date in California."

42
"Hey! - who turned all
  these cows loose."

43

succeeds in crossing 
the desert will un-
doubtedly win the 
      race."

55
"Where's Harry?"

56
"Haven't seen him for 
weeks. Guess the 
wolves got him in the 
      desert."

57
         The next day the
        champion, sure of
       victory, starts on 
the final lap of the race.

"Keep cool! -- this'll soon
         blow over."

"ENQUIRIES!
