THE ANCHOR i , 9- But they did not come and present- ly a little voice within said, "Now see what you have done. Go back home and tell your mother." "I won't," asserted Self. "Why not?" questioned Conscience. "Because I'll be pun- ished," replied Self, "But you deserve it," Conscience reminded, "No, I don't," defied Self. Then determined to still Conscience, he began to skate across the river. Suddenly he seemed to be rounded by companions. They were They Su!" here, there and everywhere. were clad in bright colors and were darting in and out among their com- rades. Presently he noticed that they were leading him downstream. That was where the thin ice was, he thought with a chill of horror. Who were these people anyway with their strange faces, strange dress and strange ways? Where were they taking him to? Where did they come from so suddenly? These thoughts chased each other through his mind. "I must go back," he thought to himself. But even though he wanted to go back, he could not, try as he would. It was just a short distance to the thin ice now. As they neared it he saw a hideous looking monster, sitting on a cushion. The foremost of his companions ran ahead and bending on one knee, he solemnly touched his nose to the ice and then stood at attention. "You have him?" questioned the monster, who was Ill Nature.. "Yes, Ill Nature," he replied. "You may take him six feet on the thin ice," he ordered. Immediately Elliott felt the same strange something pulling him on against his will. They touched the thin ice, but to his surprise they did not break through. Looking back, he saw the monster Ill Nature, grad- ually dwindle until he saw nothing but a snow drift. Fear tugged at his heart. Surely this was not the world of reality he thought. But at this moment a great crack- ling and grumbling was heard, and the ice broke and he went through. Down, down, down, he went. Every- thing was dark as night. Finally after what seemed an interminable time he landed on ice again, with a. thump which seemed to echo and re- echo. Then before his dazed eyes appeared another monster, even more hideous looking than the first. He was all black and was perched upon a high stool. "You brought him?" he demanded in a shrill voice. "Yes, Resentment, answered the foremost one bending on one knee and touching his nose to the ice. 'KNow," said Resentment the mon- ster, turning his wicked little eyes on Elliot, "Remove the wood from that circular place at my Left and then skate around in a circle until I tell you to stop." Elliot protested, but that same in- visible force impelled him, as it had before. Slowly he tried to pick up a stick of wood. It was so heavy that he was unable to lift it. "Try again," purred Resentment in a sqft voice. Elliot tried again. This time he could lift it. It felt cold to his hands. It seemed smore like sticks of ice than wood. When he had re- moved that stick he turned around to move the rest when he saw to his amazement that all the sticks were gone. r YI 'Commence skating," murmured the- monster in the same soft voice. Elliot was so frightened that he could do nothing but obey. Round and round he went in dizzy circles. Would the monster never tell him to stop? But no, it was not to be. He still was forced around the circle at a terrific rate of speed. "I -- can't stand it--much--longer," he gasped to himself. "I--I feel sick," he thought again. "I wish 1'd 'minded Mother," he whispered dizzily. He fell with a

The Boy Who Would A'Skating Go "But, mother why can't I?" asked Elliot. "George, Edward and Jack are going." "Because, answered his mother, "you know that you have to study for that examination tomorrow. Be- sides," she added, "you might get on the thin ice. Now clon't ask me again for that is final." Elliot walked into his father's of- fice dejected. He sat down on the couch. "O, dear," he sighed, "why can't I do what I want to? I might go skating just as well as not if mother only thought so. The ice is perfectly safe and I can get up early in the morning and study." The more he thought of it the more he wanted to go. "Jack and Edward and George will he there," he mused. Suddenly a hrilliant idea popped in- to his head. Why not go anyway? She would never know it. Mother just kept him in because she couldrft go. On thinking it over he decided that he was being ill treated and he would go now anyway, Whether she found it out or not. Having decided his course 'of' action he lay down on the couch, thinking that he would lie there and make his plans until supper time. He closed his eyes and soon went to sleep. When all the family had withdrawn to the sitting room, mother with her sewing and father with his papers, he tiptoed out softly, taking his skates with him. When safely out- side he ran for the ice as fast as he could., Arriving there breathless, he looked around for the boys, but they were not in sight. However he put his skates on and began cutting a circle, thinking they would come soon.

10 THE ANCHOR thump and at the same time he saw the monster melt away into air. "Well, well, what are you doing there Elliott?" inquired a familiar voice. "Supper is waiting for you." Elliot looked around him and dis- covered that he was sitting on the iioor in his father's office and his father was talking to him. "O," he said in a relieved voice, "Dad I've decided not to go skating tonight. I have to study for my ex- amination tomorrow." Ruby Bulger, '20 A Psalm Of The Juniors Tell me not in whispered accents, That Juniors have an easy life: For the one that does not study, Stays behind from out the stri-ie.

Ruby Bulger, '20 1 r Conversing' With The Inhabitants Ol' Mars Marconi, the inventor of the wire- less, has just made a seemingly im- possible revelation to the world. For several Weeks he had' been receiving messages not intelligible on one of his most powerful instruments. He has now proven, or at least sat- isfied himself, that these messages are sent from no instrument nor in any code of this world. So he has eventually reached the conclusion that thes.e communications must be from some other planet. He is going to try to prove it by answering them. The first problem to overcome will be to build an apparatus strong e- nough to send a message to that dis- tance. Marconi thinks this possible and has determined to try it out. One can imagine the wireless oper- ators of two worlds studying the re- sponses of their machines like stu- dents in Latin poring over a fresh lesson. The only key to a code would be figures to begin with for an order of life intelligent enough to conduct a wireless instrument must have means of counting and the bases of all numeral systems must be the same. ' If conversation can be earned on with other worlds we might gain countless knowledge as possibly the other planet might have progressed further than we on certain lines or we might impart knowledge of value to them. Kingman Williams, '21 The Travels Of The North Wind The North wind arose from his bed far in the North country among the icebergs. One huge sheet of ice had been especially prepared by him for hi.s bed. It was a delicate shade of green in color, with snow, the a very fine bed. up his bed, he every inorning. The Wind went galloping over the ocean, kicking up the water, making and being covered Wind considered it Instead of making brought fresh snow
