So he went out Walking. He walked up a big hill, following the trolley tracks, and in the middle of a small open place in the middle of a crowd of other trees, he found a large Maple Tree with Six Big Branches. Winnie-ther-Pooh sat down at the foot of this funny-looking Tree, put his head between his paws, and began to wonder. He wondered first of all, what this funny-looking Tree was doing in the Middle of Nowhere: but it wasn't a very long wonder, for he turned to his left, and there was Something biting its lips and bouncing its head against the Door, above which there was a sign. "This is the Administration Building", the sign announced to the world. And beneath this sign was a long skinny sign which spelled out in Capital Letters, "American Interna- tional College", because "American International College" wouldn't have fit on the other sign anyway. "l wonder if The Tree grew here," said Pooh, "or did somebody plant it?" "H'rurnph", answered the Yellow and Black Something bouncing beside Pooh. lt whirred once, turned to him, and in a worra-worra sort of voice said gravely, "Allow me to introduce myself. l am known familiarly and to my intimate friends as Dexter lf Slotnick. And may l inquire as to your presence here, and besides what are you doing anyhow? Do you in- tend to fill your cranium with knowledge gleaned from our polly-noses2?" Pooh said, "Huh?" CHAPTER I.-THURSDAY N Pooh, deciding to follow Dexter, did a lot of heelecooling the first six and three-quarter minutes, until Dexter bounced down from the first branch where he had been busily roost- ing. "Due to mY fGlGiiV9 1lHfCimiliCIfiiY with the extensive field of English Literature, I hesi- tate to publish the percentage I have attained on this childish demonstration of inherent capabilities," he said. "Besides, l'm pretty dumb at that sort of thing. Leave us go to class now." They went to clases which were three and three-eighth minutes of such things as "We should not let our egocentricity be our motivating force in this world, according to statistical data which says that the assets and liabilities would equal it would be easy to put the ac- cent on the wrong syllable and to no do your work ausWendig". Pooh came away feel- ing very wise. He climbed after Dexter to another branch of The Tree, Where many of Dexter's own particular kind of fine-feathered and furred friends were all worra-worra-ing together. Pooh gathered from the conversation that Dexter's friends were going through some sort of initiation and that those who would worra-worra the loudest would be chosen the leaders? Those who did worra-worra the loudest then went to the front of the limb and worra-worra-ed and everybody else worra-worra-ed too. "Come," said Dexter. "lt's time to adjourn to the 'Not-so-Hot Vanilla-Shoppe"' to im- bibe an Extract-of-Malt." 40 Pooh simply could not understand why, when it was so sunny outside, it was so foggy in the Ash Tree to which he had followed Dexter. After a little, Pooh left the Ash Tree which was now beginning to seem familiar, and went home to count his honey-pots, and wonder what all this worra-worra-ing meant, until he found himself worra-worra-ing too. CHAPTER ll.-FRIDAY The next morning, which was Friday, Pooh yawned lazily. Before he was really awake, he had decided to return to the Maple Tree. And so, he did. lust as he was standing under one of the branches, Dexter bounced down on top of him with a pair of cymbals clenched between his teeth. He informed Pooh that he Dexter l.' Slotnick, was in a hurry to attend Band Practice, as the game of the year called "Football" was to be played against the Hated Rivals from the Next Clearing that morning at nine o'clock. And Pooh, who had a naturally open mind, went along. 1- if ul- -if -if There was a big worra-worra under the Maple Tree. Dexter's friends, who hadn't changed much except that their corduroy pants and plaid shirts were even more unpressed from sitting, were pouring hot cement and raisins into the faces. of others who looked exactly like Dexter, only younger. Dexter said it was Initiation for the Uninitiatedi and asked Pooh to join in the hot cement. Pooh did, and he got excited when one young Golden-haired Thing almost broke .Pooh's paw. Pooh smashed an egg in her hair and felt better. And then there was a bigger worra-worra because two of Dexter's best friends, Dowd and Stoddard, had disappeared into The Place Where the Woozle Wuzn't. Everyone was very Worra-ed: but it was soon forgot. Pooh was a little tired now. It was afternoon and everyone was hopping in a Neigh- boring Catalpa Tree" Pooh poohed at a neat little blonde called Kangaf who reminded him of his honey-pots. "Astute and helpful bear," said Kanga. Pooh looked proud at being called a stout and helpful bear and decided that he would come back to the Catalpa Tree again sometime. But later he became enchanted at a bit of gray fluff, a lovely thing, wearing a crown of jewels and purple robes, riding on the back of a beautiful Butterflyf , Pooh was so tired that when he got home he went to bed, and to sleep: in fact, he slept through most of Saturday! CHAPTER Ill.-SATURDAY Pooh had a bad dream. lt made him quite anxious. He didn't hum any hurns for a long time, and when he finally felt like humming again, it came out sounding like the "Victory Polka". The Noise had come at seven o'clock that night, and when Pooh looked out to see what All the Bother was, it was a Thing called the War. For a long time after that, Pooh didn't know whether it was going to be Friend or Enemy. But Things kept right on Thinging anyway so Pooh decided he had better go back to the Maple Tree to meet Dexter. 41 Along about the middle of the afternoon, Dexter and Pooh ran across another Hop, only this time it was more like a Glide? And in the middle were a bunch of she-animals pushing he-animals around. A white-plumed Heffalump bowed graciously, fAt least it looked gracious from behind, for Poor Pooh had been pushed in to a Cornerj and smiled to see some of the other she-animals sighing. That evening was kind of a crying time. Everyone was saying Good Bye to everyone else, and after the Confusion had cleared, all that was left were the she-animals and Dex- ter's bounce. Pooh went home feeling hungry, but even honey-pots don't satisfy a lone- some kind of hunger. CHAPTER IV.-SUNDAY Sunday Pooh woke bright and expectant. He didn't even turn over once before he re- membered that he had to meet Dexter. Before you could say worra-worra twice, he had boarded an omnibus that said "Wilbraham Road" on the front. He was lucky this morn- ing, for he had to wait only three quarters of a minute!" The path looked very wide without the trolly tracks, and there were no automobiles. There was no gas, so he wondered quite naturally if Dexter had forgotten how to. When he did meet Dexter, Dexter hadn't. He was wearing an O.D. suit over his black and yellow stripes, He looked very G.l. O.C. and P.S.1' were the rule that Sunday. When Pooh asked what all the Set-Heads were preening themselves about, "My noble colleagues are being lmmortalized for Posterity by a Magnificent Bausch and Lomb Convex-Concave Lens: and besides, they're having their pictures took,"'2 Dexter said. Along about ll o'clock, Pooh always felt like a Little Something. Dexter waved a chicken leg in front of Pooh's nose, charged him One Honey Pot for the smell, and took him to a Bound Turret with Six Telephone Booths and Several Penguins Carrying Trays. Some of the shes and one sad hymn14 were hopping on full stomachs. By 12 o'clock, all had returned to the Maple Tree. By this time they all knew that "we should not let our egocentricity be our motivating force in this world, according to statistical data which says that the assets and liabilities should equal it would be easy to put the accent on the wrong syllable", and they knew it auswendig. And since there was no more for them to learn they decided to dress up in mohair drapes and say so. At this time, from the Wolery on the Topmost Branch of the Maple Tree, the All-Know- ing Voice of one with a Small White Beard was heard to say, "Now you know there are Animals called Vice-Presidents and Secy.'s of Commerce, and Factors: and a place called Bougainville. And an lsland in the Middle of the Sea where no ships used to come: and how you make a suction pumpff and when knights were knighted, and what comes from Brazil."1't Everyone worra-worra-ed admiringly, and most of them were handed Sheepskins as a Sign of Owl's Esteem and Their Ability to Worra. Pooh, his back against one of the Sixty- Something Surrounding Trees, his paws folded in front of him, said "Oh", and "l didn't know," and thought how wonderful it would be to have a Beal Brain which would tell you Things. 42 Then all the animals kissed all the Other animals and Pooh went home to tondle his Honey-Pots and think about What He would Do Tomorrow when he would Really Do Some- thing. Respectively Submitted, POOH, and EEYORE, who just wandered silently through because he couldn't think ot anything to say, and besides the Other animals said enough anyway, and what difference would it make what a mere Eeyore had to say?
