Read by richard HURNDALL 4: Hopes
The telephone call from London shattered Joes peace of mind again - Mr Massiter was coming to stay. What changes would his presence make at Valley End? Joe tried to look on the bright side. But when he got home from school on Friday the Rolls was in the drive, and Joe knew that he was there.

In April 1961 Major Yurt Gagarin became the first man to travel in space and return safelv to earth. In the same year President Kennedy predicted that an American would set foot on the moon by the end of the decade. Many were sceptical but year by year the space race intensified.
The Americans reached their goal in 1969 when Neil Arm strong made that ' small step for man. but one giant leap for mankind,' and they have continued their programme of manned flights. The Russians have probed deeper into space with their unmanned craft, and the Chinese have begun, modestly, their own space programme.
James Burke evaluates the progress of the past ten years and looks forward to the next decade.

'Both men and women were abused by the desire to such a degree that they danced in their homes, in the churches, and in the streets. While they danced they called out the names of demons, but they were unaware of this, nor did they pay attention to modesty, even though people watched them.... Those who were cured said they seemed to have been dancing in a river of blood...'
From earliest times there are records of outbreaks of compulsive dancing accompanied by lurid hallucinations. What were the causes? Have they anything in common?
