A Letter to the Graduates
Dear Girls and Boys of the Graduating Class:
The Square Deal, commemorating as it does the
achievements of the graduating class, has come to be
one of the landmarks of Alice Deal Junior High School.
I look forward with pleasure each semester to its
publication. I appreciate the honor and the privilege
which the editors extend to me of saying one last
personal word to all of you before you leave Alice Deal
to become a part of the senior high schools of Washing-
ton. I am especially grateful this semester for the
opportunity to thus address you. While I do not know
as many of you personally as I wish I did, I am interested
in you. I have studied your record at Alice Deal and
I am proud of that record. I shall watch with even
greater interest the record which each of you makes
in senior high school. You are, indeed, fortunate to
have the Woodrow Wilson right here in the com-
munity ready to receive you and ready to help you
realize the dreams which Alice Deal has sought to inspire.
May all of your dreams come true!
Two things we have tried to do for each of you:
to give you the skills and tools of learning with which
to educate yourselvesg to help you to achieve that self-
direction and self-control which will enable you to
use those tools wisely. We have succeeded very well
with the first. Your test records show that most of
you are unusually well prepared for the tasks ahead
of you. As to your powers of self-direction and self-
control, time alone will show the measure of our success.
"To every man there openeth
A way and ways and a way.
And the high soul climbs the high way
. And the low soul gropes the low,
And in between on the misty flats
The rest drift too and fro.
To every man there openeth
A high way and a low
And every man decideth
The way his soul shall go."
I confidently expect to watch the members of this
graduating class climb the high way of life.
Today we realize that we have reached another
port on our voyage through life. Now we may pause
for a moment and reflect on some of the experiences
that we have encountered on our passage to this im-
portant destination. All has not been smooth sailing.
If it had been, our success would not seem so satisfying
an accomplishment. We feel a justiiable sense of pride
in having completed this part of our journey, yet we
are not unconscious of the aid which we have received
from our principal, our teachers, and our own student-
2 ALICE DEAL JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOL
ofiicers who have played the part of officers and crew
for our ship.
Having left behind the safe haven of elementary
school, we sailed with high hopes upon the untraveled
seas which were to lead us through junior high school
to the distant shore of senior high. Our ship seemed
small and insignificant as it steamed its way slowly but
surely through the first year with its many changes
and readjustments. Many times our staunch little craft
wavered as it struggled to maintain its course through the
shallows, sometimes coming dangerously close to the
reefs of failure, but with ready guidance ever at hand
we managed to plow onward.
Pausing at the close of the seventh grade to refuel,
we had time to reflect on our achievements. We felt a
little more assured now that our ship seemed to loom
larger and more important in the life of the school. We
continued our journey conscious of the awe of the new
seventh graders, and aware that we were meriting a
little recognition from the seniors. Some of us even
began to be recognized as leaders in various activities,
and had opportunities to develop our talents in various
ways. Careful to avoid shipwreck, we buckled down to
work in order that no disaster might befall us.
At length we reached our second coaling base and
discovered that, almost before we had realized it, we
must prepare ourselves for graduation. Filled with
enthusiasm we put to sea for the third time. Neverthe-
less, experienced sailors that we were, we occasionally
went off the course, but inspired by the beacon light
from the port so close at hand, we regained the channel
and entertained high hopes of completing our voyage
Today we are ready to debark from the friendly
craft which has brought us safely thus far. In a few
moments we shall receive our diplomas-passports which
certify that we have earned the right to take passage
on a larger and more complicated vessel for a journey
through more difficult seas. XVe find it harder than
we realized to say farewell to our faithful ship and
devoted crew. It is hard to part from those of our
class whose paths must separate at this point. We trust,
however, that the friendships we have formed here may
endure throughout the years, and we depart knowing
that Alice Deal does not forget fh0Se Wh0 have sailed
As the radiance of the new wtofld made Clear the
pathway of Columbus, so may the m0U30 of 0'-11' School,
"Light and Life," kindle our vision 25 WC, 500, "Sail
on and on." ht

Salutation ' ,
It gives me great pleasure to act as spokesman for
my class to welcome you and to express our apprecia-
tion for your presence on this important occasion. We
are extremely happy to be graduating, and we are
thoroughly enjoying our brief moment of glory. Even
if we were not confident that you rejoice with us,
your beaming smiles would betray you. Arenlt your
hearts, in tune with ours, beating a little faster with
pride and pleasure in our achievement?
This is an appropriate moment to acknowledge with
sincere gratitude the debt we owe for the devoted interest
of parents, friends, and teachers. Without your help
We should not find ourselves ready and waiting to receive
the diplomas which are ofiicial evidence of our accom-
plishments. Nor do we wish this occasion to pass with-
out a word of appreciation for the friendly associations
our school has afforded us with teachers and fellow-
students. We sever this association with regret, but
with the satisfaction of knowing that we have obtained
here a foundation in character-training through a pro-
gram of studies, activities, and Wholesome contacts
which should find us equipped to meet the problems
which will inevitably face us as we enter a new field
We believe that we have here learned to think and
to understand and to appreciate the value of an educa-
tion. As we bask in the spotlight of this thrilling
moment we feel inspired to entertain high hopes of
justifying your pride and loyalty, and we pledge our
best efforts to realizing some of the ambitions you
cherish for us.

The Tree That Saved My Life
I was driving down Macomb Street on my chum's
bicycle. I was clipping along about twenty miles an
hour. Just as I started pumping faster, the handle
bar broke and came off in my hands. I dropped it on
the pavement and the bicycle Went out of my control.
I was careening along dizzily, when I saw a car coming
up the street. I couldn't put on the brakes. Was I
going into the street and get run over or hit by the car?
Fate only knew. That is what flashed through my mind,
although afterwards I thought I had been dreaming.
Bewildered and too scared to shout, I finally saw I
was heading toward a tree. After going about twenty-
five feet farther, I ran off the pavement into the tree.
This also happened in a few minutes. Luckily, I had
only a few cuts which had to be sewed up. I am thank-
ful I was not run over. That tree saved my life.
Lawrence Siggers, 7A7.
A Meal for a King
What tastes better than a meal cooked in the open
over an open fire, with a bunch of congenial fellows
sitting in a circle around it? It is great fun to broil
the sizzling steaks over the hot coals and occasionally
stir the Irish potatoes so that they will bake evenly
while buried in the embers. Crisp October evenings
are just the thing to whet a chapis appetite, and a brisk
hike over the hills to a favorite spot gathering together
some fire wood puts the right edge on his appetite. One
can hardly wait to put his piece of steak on a long
handled fork or a stick with a prong on the end to
hold it over the coals. As the juices ooze out and the
fat sizzles to a nice brown, the aroma fairly makes
one's mouth water. Then a dash of salt and a little
pepper sprinkled over it, with a hunk of butter to melt
in the center, finishes it to perfection. This, with the
potatoes baked to a flaky white, seasoned and buttered,
and hot Parker House rolls hit the right spot. To top
off, one needs a cool drink- of sweet cider and some
pumpkin pie with perhaps a piece of snappy cheese
on the side, and a fellow has a meal lit for a king.

Washington, D. C.,
December 15, 1936.
Things are dull in Washington. Our house is bitterly
cold. When I go out I have to be carried because the
mud is so thick it soils my shoes. XVe have poor trans-
portation and none of the streets is lighted, so we
usually stay home at night and have card playing and
dancing to pass time.
John went duck hunting this morning. Tomorrow
evening I have levees which start at eight and end at
ten. I serve tea, coffee, wine and small cakes.
Congress is in session from eleven in the morning
until four in the evening. Sunday afternoon services
are held. Many people crowd into the House of
I am expecting you to visit me Christmas and am
counting on you. Write soon and let me know.

An Exciting Adventure With a Famous
It was nearly October twelfth when we first saw
any land. The food was very scarce and we had prac-
tically no water. I was cabin boy on the Santa Maria,
the flagship of the fleet. The crew was mutinous and
afraid. Despair was written on all faces, but nothing
could turn back our leader, Columbus.
Early the next morning Columbus, who had stayed
at the bridge all night, came running into the cabin
shouting, "I see land! Land I tell you!,' Everyone was
up in an instant, and out on deck. The cook was
there with knife in hand, and some of the crew had
not even taken time to dress.
Later we rowed out to this new land and Columbus
claimed it for Spain. This, I think, is my most exciting

Moving day has its trials. To begin with, the mov-
ing van will never arrive on time. Then little Junior
insists on bringing everything from his pet toad to his
dog house, the poor occupant of which died long ago.
Getting the furniture out of the house is another trial.
Musty trunk-s must be brought down from the attic
and old baby carriages must be dragged up from the
cellar. Beds must be torn apart never to be replaced
correctly again. Glassware, chinaware, and silver must
be packed in tons of excelsior. Clothes must be packed
in suitcases. Mother vows she'll never move again! At
last we are on our way when Junior discovers he has left
his tricycle, the one without the handlebars. So--off
we go back home because little Junior will not stop
howling. Then comes the grand hunt for the trouble-
causing toy. When it is found, we can't find a place
to put it, but Junior will absolutely not leave it home.
Gracious, he has started howling again! Mother settles
it this time. In the wink of an eye she yanks him into
the car and we are on our way again to our new resi-

Mutiny in the Basement
As long as I live I shall retain the memories and
scars of my last minute Christmas shopping. I started
with high hopes of conquest but to my dismay it was
not conquest, but contest-to see who could get to
the counter. At first, with much faith in the courtesy
of my fellow men, I resigned myself to being pushed
along with the crowd. It was not so simple as this, how-
ever, as I was soon to discover, so setting myself in much
the same position as an attack-ing football player, I
lunged at the counter. My first attack was repelled
by a huge specimen of feminine humanity who nearly
cracked my rib with a well-placed elbow. Seeing that
further attempt to gain a place through this veritable
Rock of Gibraltar was hopeless, I tried the yard goods
counter. Again I charged at the line, this time gaining
two yards-of cloth-which was promptly ripped in
two by an overzealous contender. I finally decided that
"in union there is strength," so with several of my com-
panions, whom I failed to mention, I went into punt
formation. Our opponents promptly formed a six-two-
two-one defense. Someone kicked a goal on my shin
and in my stumbling attempt to regain my center of
equilibrium, I found myself actually face to face with
the sales girl. My success must have gone to my head.
At least someone's umbrella did. Sufficiently recovered
to battle my way out, I vowed never to wait until the
last minute to do my Christmas shopping.
i Eleanor Mellicbampe, 9A3 .
One day I went to visit my aunt who had just moved
into a new row house. After dinner I went for a walk
by myself. Upon returning to the house, I found a
note in the dining room which directed me to retire.
Thinking my aunt was probably at the movies, I went
up to bed. Just before dozing off, I heard the folks
return. Imagine my feelings when I saw, not my uncle
and aunt, but strangers peering at me!

A Bus Ride
A keen observer can spend a very fruitful period of
observation of human character on a bus. Easily recog-
nized is the successful business man, slightly rotund
at the waist, quite gray, in conservative dark serge
suit, with the accompanying tie and shining shoes
befitting his calling.
Always interesting is the shopper with bundles of
varied shapes and sizes. What could possibly be in
that long, thin bundle balanced so periously on top of
the package with the sides bulging?
Over in a corner sits a young fellow peering into
a book. The Whole world, as far as he is concerned, is
contained within the book. Maybe he is studying for
a special examination, or maybe he is just another fellow
who thinks reading is life's only excuse for being.
While the bus waits, its powerful motor idling, thirty
passengers being delayed, a young lady of ive insists
on her kiss from daddy. And not one of the group
begrudges these few moments. Even the motor roars
its satisfaction as it pulls away! .
Douglas Burton, 9A1.
It happened last Thanksgiving. One had to be care-
ful as the passing was treacherous. The curved sides were
as smooth as glass, as slippery as ice. The distance, which
was really quite short, seemed endless. I knew that I
was silly to be so apprehensive as many ahead of me had
succeeded without hesitating, but for some reason my
courage failed when it came my turn. My hands were
perspiring. Then the journey started. I was slow and
deliberate. I had covered a quarter of the distance, now
a half, now three-quarters. I had nearly finished. Then,
for apparently no reason what-so-ever, it happened.
The catastrophe I had been dreading happened. There
was quite a commotion. Up in the air! Down in my
lap! Yes, after all my trouble and worry, I had done
it. I had dropped the dish with the preserves in it.
Lucille Stringer, 7A7.
The World's Funniest Game
Chess is unique of all games. Why people play it I
don't know. Other games have elements of physical
skill, excitement, and chance, but chess has none of them.
Most outdoor games have all of these elements, indoor
games most of them. Even checkers has excitement. To
see players at a board waiting anywhere from five min-
utes to an hour for the opponent to move, exchanging
puzzled looks as pieces are taken, often makes me
wonder why the game was ever invented.
As the game proceeds, the faces of the players
alternately show triumph and despair as knights, bishops,
rooks, and pawns maneuver in attempts to corner the
opponent's king or queen. When the game has finally
been completed, both participants solemnly declare that
they will never again indulge in this idiotic pastime, but
after an hour or so they are at it again. In my opinion,
all sensible people should stick to sensible games such
as football, basketball, baseball, and tennis. If they
must have indoor games, why not bridge or poker? But
they won't stick to sensible games. They insist on
this crazy, nerve-wracking, thought-provoking game
called chess. Or at any rate I do.
Henry Silsbee, 9A6.
Character is the result of training. A fine character
is formed by constant good habits. There is no greater
achievement than the development of good character.
Character is formed not by indulgence, but by consistent
sacrince. Character is not doing anything for a reward
or for any selfish purpose. It is satisfied knowing
that it is doing the right thing. When one lies, or cheats,
he is not forming good character, and is cheating him-
self of a very valuable possession. Building good
character is not an easy task. It is a very difficult one.
A person must be on his guard continuously if he wants
to build good character. Fair play and, in some cases,
self-denial, are the bases for forming good character. A
good character is worth more than all the riches in the

An Embarrassing Experience
A few summers ago my family Went to New
Hampshire for a week. We stayed at a place called
Bow Lake because it is in the shape of a bow. There
were many islands which We liked to visit by canoe,
and I had my first canoe ride to one of the islands. XVe
started one afternoon about one o'clock. My friend
and I paddled.
In this part of New Hampshire there are many
blueberries. The island where we landed was covered
with big juicy ones. We found some cans and began
picking berries. After we had grown tired, we returned
to the canoe and pushed off, tak-ing the blueberries
back to the cottage.
Drawing along side of an old canoe landing, I
was elected to get out first. I was just about on shore
when I slipped, and one foot slid into the water. Next,
I found myself standing in water about up to my waist.
My first canoe ride was a funny experience, but I
enjoyed it very much.

The New Ark
My great, great, great grandmother came with a
group of emigrants to America from England in 1640.
The settlers landed at the place which is now Newark,
New Jersey, and started to build a small stockade.
When it was about finished, winter overtook the settlers
and they were forced to live on the ship.
The next spring they finished the stockade and
moved in. When they were established in their new
homes, the leader called a meeting to decide a name for
the settlement. My great, great, great grandmother
suggested "The'New Ark." All of the names men-
tioned were voted upon, but the one my great, great,
great grandmother selected received the most votes so
the new settlement was called "The New Ark."
That name today has become Newark-.

I believe you know that I accompanied Henry M.
Stanley on his trip to Africa in search of David Living-
stone. We were five years in the jungles of Africa and
endured many hardships. Only about half of the party
survived. We saw many strange sights in the years of
jungle life. Several times I came near to losing my life.
One time we were captured by natives that dis-
liked white men very much because a party had taken
many of them slaves years before. They were about
to kill us, but one night when they were having a
celebration, we escaped with the aid of one friendly
The meeting of Stanley and Livingstone was a scene
never to be forgotten. As we approached his party,
Stanley casually said, "David Livingstone, I presume."
Livingstone was ill with fever but was continuing his
work among the natives. XVe tried to persuade him to
return to civilization, but he would not leave the natives.
Later he died, and, as you know, the natives buried
his heart in Africa. His body is being tak-en back to
England to be buried in Westminster Abbey.
My experiences in Africa were very thrilling, and I
shall never regret going, but I believe my place is in

When the cold comes in the fall,
That's the time I like the best,
'Cause Dad and I go hunting
Far away from all the rest.
We leave the cities far behind,
Taking only guns and dogs.
We have fun chasing rabbits
From their homes in old dry logs.

Around the World in the Twenty-third Century
I have just returned from an all-day visit around
the world. We left in my fly-moible at eight in the
morning and reached London at nine. It would have
been foggy except that the fog clearer kept the day
lovely. We stopped and saw a few things of interest,
such as the tomb of King Edward VII and the Windsor
Castle. Wie got into such heavy traflic flying over
London that we went on to Paris. We reached it in
Hfteen minutes. Not stopping because we had planned
to have lunch in Japan, we started on. We flew over
some very old cities: Cairo, Constantinople, Bombay,
and Hong-Kong. We reached Peking at eleven-thirty.
After having lunch there, we started home. After about
five minutes of traveling, we looked down on what was
once Japan. There had been a great explosion and the
islands went under water. We continued the trip, in
due time reaching San Francisco in two and a half hours,
and home by five o'clock.
Marion Peoples, SB2.
She was an odd mixture of comfortable homeliness
and the strictest etiquette. She came to us from the
service of Lady Humphries and we strongly suspected
that the latter part of her character was acquired in
serving that English noblewoman. She was a perfect
housekeeper, vigorously polishing and scrubbing until
the whole house shone. No longer was our father
allowed to smoke in front of the fire in a dressing
robe but was found to squeeze into an old and long
forgotten smoking jacket. We were virtually Hulda's
slaves and we liked it. Tea must be served every after-
noon at four whether there was anyone there to drink
it or not. Wine was served with dinner and liqueur
after. My elders drank or suffered the looks of utter

My father and I were once on a Hshing trip in north-
western Maine at a large lake about twenty miles long.
It has a great many islands. While on our ishing trip
we stopped on one of them to eat lunch. As the guide
was cooking lunch, my father and I decided to explore.
At one time an old man had lived on the island.
We found an old car with brass trimmings. There
were seven laboratories, three houses, two boat sheds,
an ice house, two underground passage ways, and an
old sea wall. Every winter the old man would drive
across the lake for supplies for winter and summer. The
tunnels led from his houses to the laboratories which he
used for experiments. He had one house in which he
lived in winter, one in which he lived in summer, and
another in which he kept his instruments. Lying
around were broken bottles and flasks. One day, while
coming across the ice he hit a thin spot, and, lucky
for him, a sand bar, for otherwise he would have lost
his car and drowned. He lived alone on the island
and finally died in happiness because some kin had left
him some money.
We then came back to where the guide had just
finished cooking the lunch which consisted of French-
fried potatoes, steak, and cocoa. On our way home the
man we were with caught a land lock salmon, and I
caught two red speckled trout which we had the next

The mosquito is a pesk-y thing-
He goes around as though he's king,
Buzzing here and buzzing there
Until he makes us mildly swear.
First we clap
And then we slap
But all we do
Is not a clue
On how to catch mosquitoes.
Robert Hendon, 8A6.
Some of my Irish-Scotch ancestors settled in Penn-
sylvania while it was wild Indian country. During that
time they lived in a state of constant preparedness.
One day while the men were away from the house
clearing a piece of land for a farm, my great, great,
great grandmother heard a sound like that made by a
turkey gobbler. She ran quickly to the rack of muskets
over the large open Hreplace and cautiously peered out
the open window, musket in hand. In a few moments
the Indian who was making the sound appeared at one
side of the house. She shot him through the neck and
quickly reloaded the gun. The men, hearing the shot,
hurried home from the field. ,When the Indians found
themselves discovered, they retreated and did not return.

Understanding the Poor
Mr. Lincoln came from a very poor family so he
could easily understand the poor. One day he was
visiting a little country school. Most of the children
were well off, but there was one little boy whose mother
was so poor that she had to work as a scrub woman.
One day the school teacher told the children to be
sure to black their boots because they were going to
have a very distinguished visitor. John, the little boy,
could not afford to buy the polish to shine his boots. He
had to use soot from the stove in his home.
XVhen he went to school the next day, all the little
boys ridiculed him to the point where he started crying,
but tried to hide his tears. Mr. Lincoln, the distinguished
visitor, noticed the little boy's predicament but did not
After he went away, Mr. Lincoln was not heard of
for a long time, but the next time John saw him, Mr.
Lincoln asked him if he would like to go shopping
with him. Of course John was very glad to go, so
he and Mr. Lincoln went shopping. The next time
,Iohn went to school he was the best dressed boy there
because of the kindness of Abraham Lincoln.

"Pcxddlin' Up a Dry Crick"
"Sure an' can ya believe it boys, that I, Sergeant
Mike O'Hara, be leadin' ya to capture a second Dil-
linger?', Why, we'll be famous, have our names in the
paper. But ya all know what to do?" dubiously ques-
tioned Sergeant O'I-Iara.
"Sure an' that we do, Mike," came a chorus of
voices, suppressing mingled fear and excitement.
Eleven-fifty o'clock found them in a middle-class
neighborhood. Pausing before a large four-story struc-
ture, they finally made their way to the door and gained
entrance by a small device, a skeleton key.
The striking of midnight broke the prevailing silence,
and Mike O'Hara, beckoning to his men, silently
ascended to the second floor. A tense moment it was
when the party reached their destination. Excited
whispers running up and down the line and Sergeant
O'Hara's questions were greeted merely by nods of
Arriving before a large door, Mike gently rapped
three times. It was answered by a very young man in
a dressing robe, who found himself pushed rudely into
his quarters. "But, but, gentlemen," he began only to
"Tickle the clouds, brother. We got'cha now and
you're comin, to the station with us." Thus midst the
confusion of fellow boarders, who were casting grateful
glances toward the sergeant, he, the criminal, Was
ushered out by two armed guards, all protests in vain.
At one oiclock an exhausted chief of police was
listening to the last Words of Mike's tale describing the
daring capture of the state's most dangerous desperado,
with hundreds of dangerous weapons in his possession,
with an equally surprising number of notches on them.
An uncertain eye was turned upon the young man.
"And what do you have to say for yourself, young
fellow?,' questioned the chief.
"XVhy, truly sir, I'm in a daze. These gentlemen
rushed in upon me and took me totally unawares, with-
out any explanation for their actions. The guns, well,
I'm just an amateur gun collector and as for the notches,
well, they're iust a pastime."
There is a certain old man, now robust and old,
who lives at MacFadden's Flats, who still claims that
he was given the wrong address and that it was the chief's

A Good Act
Qmz anecdote retold J
David Belasco was a great playwright and actor at
all times. His company of actors were once rehearsing
a play and they were not doing as well as he had hoped
they would. As he had a very quick temper, he quickly
drew out his watch, threw it on the floor, and stamped
on it until it was shattered into a thousand pieces. The
actors exchanged frightened glances.
Then he stepped back, viewed the ruin, muttered,
"Good Lord-my mother's-my dear dead--mother's
last gift to me. Children, I'm an old and tired man.
Please Work harder."
The actors realized they had not been doing very
well. From then on they worked amazingly Well.
Belasco turned to me and said, "That was a good act
I staged. Please remind me to buy another dollar

The Mysterious Burglar
It was one o'clock and We heard someone coming
up the stairs. Thump, thump, thump, went the noise.
Betty and I ran into our mother's room. She said she had
heard the sound, too. We Woke Dad and Larry, my
brother, and went out into the hall. Mother had a
broom so when the noise came closer, mother hit some-
thing hard but said, "I must have missed him, but I
think I hit his foot, cause I heard him squeak-sort of."
Dad suggested turning on the lights. Then I burst out
laughing. Mother had killed a mouse that was trying
to bring a potato upstairs.

A Mexican Donkey Boy
One hot summer day a Mexican boy was to be seen
slowly jogging along on the bare back of a gray and
white donkey. His face was bright red with the heat,
and his broad sombrero wasipushed far back on his head.
He had dropped the reins and was so slumped on the back
of the donkey that, at a first glance, anybody would
have thought him asleep.
Finally, Pedro raised his head and gazed sleepily
in front of him. He saw a clump of trees, and slowly
pick-ing up his reins, he clucked to his donkey. The
animal, whose name was Tortilla, started into a trot
and they soon reached the shade. Pedro dismounted and
took, his lunch out of his hat. He promptly gobbled
his tamales. He was so tired from having slept all day,
he slept again. When at last he reached his hut, he
promptly slept again.

An Unexpected Visitor
One summer while up at Mt. Rainier National Park,
I was lying on my cot thinking of the numerous bears
that prowl in that vicinity at night. The head of my
cot was at the back of the tent so I had a fairly good
view of the opening. My mother and father were
sleeping on the ground with their heads at the front of
the tent. When I had thoroughly frightened myself
at the thought of a bear entering the tent, I heard
a slight rustle of some twigs. A moment passed and
I saw four huge brown paws under the flap. Another
moment passed and I saw the large brown head of a
bear in the flap of the tent. If my mother had awakened
just then, she would have been unable to see beyond
a paw which was poised directly above her head. just
as I screamed, my father awoke to see a mother bear
and two cubs running as fast as possible from the camp.

A Locker Talks
On the top steps as twilight softened the halls of
Deal, locker 257 sat waiting for friends. All lockers
on the second floor were to meet in the gymnasium to
talk about their pleasures and sorrows.
One locker said to some others, "I am kept nicely
and I am not kicked by my owner. He throws no trash
in me, he breaks none of my structure, and I hope he still
will keep his temper and keep the floor around me clean
and tidy. I hear there is to be a war, and the lockers
are going to war on the pupils who kick and hit them.
I hope they will stop it because they will have no place
to keep their books. The boys and girls will have to
keep their books by themselves and will have to carry
them to all classes. Then they will be so tired of doing
that they will be sorry that they kicked us."

Adventures at Alice Deal
I was not at school the first semester because of
illness. When I did come back I went with another
girl who by that time had learned her way around the
One time when that girl was not at school, I went
by myself and got all mixed up because I couldn't Rnd
the lunch room. I went down the wrong stairs. At
last, however, after ten minutes of running around to
wrong stairways, I found the right one.
The first day I 'did not like the school as I was
homesick for my old school. The week following, I
learned my way around and got to know all my teachers.
Then I liked the school much better.

The Snowman's Smile
Snowman, you,re so round and fat
With your crushed and tattered hat
Smiling through the rushing snow
What's the merry joke you know?
XVith your broom you stand so straight-
A snowy sentry at our gate.
Smiling at the people passing
With a smile that's everlasting
When the birds come back to sing,
They bring a warm and flowing spring.
Snowmen can not stand such weather,
So you and winter flee together.

A Wet Experience
One cold fall day I decided to take my dog, Puddy,
for a walk in the park. We were following a trail that
led along Rock Creek, which I noticed was frozen,
when my dog's nostrils began to quiver and he started
to run toward the creek. When I turned to see what
caused his excitement, I noticed a dark shape on the
ice about ten feet from che shore.
When I drew closer to the scene, I saw that the
dark object was a duck-, frozen and quite dead. Puddy
ran along the bank whining. Finally he tried to crawl
out on the ice. He crawled about five feet when the
ice broke, and he went down only to come up again
wet and shivering. Quickly he swam ashore. Then
we hurried home at the end of a wet experience.

When I was snug in bed.

And he held his head quite tall,
But when I went to catch him,
He was not there at all.
