HE Argonauts strained at the oars until they bent
like bows in their hands, and then they felt the
sun as it streamed upon them, The ship sprang for-
ward. Surely, they were now on the wide sea of the
second semester. The Argonauts shouted. They saw
the piles behind them and now above Jason's head, the bird of
peaceful days fluttered. And the Argonauts knew that this was a
sign of good sailing.
Then Gail, in a clear voice, spoke to Jason and the heroes.
NSurely some spirit possesses me,u he said, UDespite all I do or
say, it will make me go to Spring Valley.H The Argonauts shouted
farewell to him. A strong breeze blew them onward and Argonauts
sailed on without their comrade.
Now the sailors came upon a place where there was a great
snow storm, and it seemed useless to continue their journey, be-
cause of the denseness of the air. Many of the people who came
to this place became sick with scarlet fever. Jason and all but
three of his worthy friends became frightened: so much so, that
they left the Argo and spread themselves abroad
in the town. WTO the Lockers! To the Lockers! Seniors
we must go. There we will not be seen by those School
who watch us."
When they came back to the Argosthe skippers looked 'Bt each
other and shame came over each of them, for they knew that they
had done wrong. The next day the captain, Mr. Sorknes, went be-
fore them and said, uNow you will have to row later at night or
else you cannot get the Golden Fleece for which you have sailed.

i day Game when the captain of the Argo,Mr.Sorknes,
is i gathered the Argonauts about h1m,and he told them
QQ that they would have to stop for a vacation. It
was near Christmas so the Argonauts left the ship
ahguall who were their frlendsg Before they parted, the Captain
spoke to the heroes saying that they needed a rest after re ing
for so long a time,
He said they should not forget the Golden Fleece that they
had sailed to gain. He suggested that they sing
some of the beautiful Christmas carolsgand as they Vacation
sang, their hearts were filled with Joy at the
thought of having been so successfully guided and protected by
God. Then as they left the ship the captain and the teachers bade
all the Argonauts farewell.
Now when they had so-journed for a period of two weeks, they
came back to the Argo. Then they shouted about all the good times
they had had. For several days the Argonauts forgot about the
Fleece of Gold, that they had sailed to Qain. Jason blushed to
think that he had almost let go out of his mind the quest that
had brought him here. Hs heard the clear voice of Mr. Sorknes
as he spoke to the Argonauts. Bravely and wisely he said, 'For-
getfulness and shame will cover your names, if you do not work
hard to pass the tests that lay before you.u
They came near the sea of tests and there they sighted piles
of papers filled with questions. Mightily they rowed and swiftly
passed several until they came to the last pile which was social
problems. It was then that Jason cried out, WOh, what a test! N

The voyagers knew that there was something in that speech
that might not be gainsaid. They put their hands before their
faces and said no other word. There was only one thing that
brought an end to their shame: hope, hope that they would not be
deprived of their trip to Faribault.
2- IKE the wave that breaks over a ship and gives the
' sailors no rest, the basketball season faced the
A Argonauts. Mr. Glesne began to fashion new plays,
2 and the thoughts of all were turned toward the
coveted basketball trophy at LeRoy.
The first encounter to which the Argonauts came was LeRoy
in their new court. The Argonauts were victorious and since they
overcame them Mr. Glesne said, Ulf we could go down into Spring
Valley and across the Grand Meadow, then surely we can get into
the sea of Albert Lea. But the passage through Grand Meadow is
most perilous and few teams dare even make approach to 1t.'
Said Jason C'Rny, the
captain of the team D,
USpeak again to us and
tell us what the dangers
of the passage are, and
Q he lp us to make these
N'A dangers less.n
