Driving the school bus will seem altogether different after the long awaited trip to Alaska for Vi Cokelet and husband Ed.

The evidence of the earthquake was seen in Valdez with the mountains at the edge of the sea at the bottom of the inlet so there is no seashore. The Cokelets met a woman who told of her husband being lost in the quake while loading a fishboat that was sucked into the waters, and of the school teacher walking hand in hand with his son and daughter and lost as the earth opened and then closed on them.

Most people who might find themselves in the unusual position of having to drive through a metropolitan city with a goat in the back seat (how do you get in that position?) would travel after dark and keep to the alleys but not Louise. As her readers will discover when they read Louise's column this week, she is planning to become an ex-correspondent. I don't like the idea at all. I've been trying to think of something embarrassing she might have told me during our years of friendship with which I might blackmail her into continuing but l'm afraid she's already put them all in her column. Hey! I know what I can do. I can offer to correct all the spelling mistakes in her college papers this fall in exchange for a weekly column. How about it, Louise? Is it a deal?
