very hilly with beautiful orchids in the

.I like to cook out of doors because it
is fun. Last summer at camp the boy scouts
cocked out of doors. We had to cook stew,
cocoa,pudding,and pork. I cooked the cocoa
gnc pudding and my buddy cooked the pork
and stew. When we were about through we
sat down and ate our dinners. The cocoa
was still cooking so we ate it later. When
we were ready to drink it, it was still
very hot and I burned my tongue,so I gave
the rest away.
When you cook out of doors it is nec-
-essnry to put the fire out and cover the
ashes before leaving. Any left over food

At the first of the year our teacher
fMr.SellersD asked the boys and girls of
the seventh and eighth grades if they would
correspond with boys and girls in
countries ao their names were taken
countries they wished. He then sent
to the Student Letter Exchange, Wetseka,Minn.
In about two weeks the names arrived and they
were distributed. Since there have been many
interesting letters received. Sometimes the
writer waits a long time for an answer. Uruw
