He gave chase but the big negro in the car let out a laugh and motioned him to come on. while the driver of the Studebaker 'let her out'' a few notches more. The blinding dust prevented the Ford doing just all that it is capable of under a clear sky, and on a smooth road. The pursued would slow down until the officer was closo behind, then shoot ahead.
