E Nl? I
WHAT KIND OF CITIZEN ARE YOU?
Take just a few seconds right now to nomi-
nate your candidate for the girl or boy who is
the best school citizen. It's not as simple as it
sounds, is it?
Are you going to choose the person who
heads committees, plays in all the games and
would probably be chosen the most popular
school member? Are clothes, personality and
dancing ability to be considered?
When I think of school citizenship, I recall a
boy who never played in a game, who couldn't
dance a step, and who passed his courses only
by a narrow margin. I-le never missed seeing a
game, however, and there was never a dance
for which he had not helped wire the gym.
To gain those passing grades he had to put
forth more effort than brighter pupils had
exerted for their A's. When he was graduated,
a big gap was left in the school. I-Ie had made
his good citizenship felt.
Well, have you chosen your candidate? Is it
the fellow out front who gets the applause and
takes the bows, or is it someone who is in the
background doing the dirty work without
complaining? And incidentally, what kind of
a school citizen are you?

Sitting by the window in the afternoon,
I wonder and dream my dear of you
Wishing and hoping that you would come soon.
Sitting by the window that evening with you,
I didn't have to wonder-'cause then I knew-
The only thing I wanted, my dear, was you.

A DAY AT SCHOOL
In the cold sub-zero weather,
Along about quarter past eight,
You can hear the chugging of the Ford
Coming down the Solon straight.
Way off yonder you see a streak,
She will be here in a jiify,
And we won't have long to wait-
Because I'll swear she's doing sixty.
As Miss Durgin pulls into the driveway
And shouts, " Isn't it chilly? "
Among the agreeing crowd,
Undoubtedly the happiest is "Skilly."
As the crowd adjourns to the building
And " Skilly " leads the way,
Miss Durgin draws the conclusion
That it's going to be a perfect day.
The oHice door flings open
And Connon rings the bell.
It's time for "Skilly" to quit flirting,
And who with is not hard to tell.
The Sophomores are quickly accumulating,
To see their handsome teacher,
Also, in walks Connon,
And you'd think he was a preacher.
" ln spite of the very cold weather
The fuel is on delay,
I know you all will be sorry,
But there will be no school today."
The crowd is very rushing,
Nobody is ever shy.
" Skilly " comes prancing in
To tell Miss Durgin Good-by.
Everybody has gone now,
And " Skilly " is being tricky.
Who should be coming, arm and arm,
But " Becky " Briggs and " Ricky."

To many people a Ford I've shown,
To many a fool my Ford I've loaned,
But some fellers say, "A car, that's all,
But most of the time, I go by them all.
There are many things wrong with my car,
But nothing I cannot I-ix, by far.
I have learned a few tricks of the trade,
But for my Ford, they seem to be made,
Bolts and nuts, wire and nails,
All together they would fill four pails.
Those are the things of which my Ford is made.
But it flies through sun and shade,
Through spring and summer, rain and shine,
In some of the darndest places my Ford you'll
Some people talk with scorn and hate,
But in my Ford they just don't rate.
Some people whisper and talk,
But on the highway I let them walk.
Some cars are good and others bad,
But many the troubles in my Ford I've had,
Some people like a Ford, and others don't,
You can talk and yell, and they just won't.
It knocks and rattles, and hammers and pounds,
And it makes some of the darndest sounds.
It groans and rumbles and rattles along,
And that folks,-is the end of my song.

PLAYING PRANKS ON LEM
As we look back into the 1880's in a small
town on the outskirts of Washington we find a
big lumber camp where there are negroes as
well as a few white men.
On the crew there was one negro who was
always careful that he didn't over work, and
the other men were always playing pranks on
One morning before breakfast the cook rang
the mess bell and they all turned out except
Lem fthe lazy negroj. While eating, one of
the boys thought they would break Lem of ly-
ing abed mornings, so Ioe goes to the cupboard
and finds the red pepper and mixes it with the
cereal that remained on the stove to keep warm
for Lem when he got up. Soon after, Lem
came out to breakfast. He took his plate and
helped himself to the cereal, leisurely taking his
time. He took a mouthful, then asked, " Who
cooked de cereal dis morn? " Ioe told him that
the cook did, same as usual. " Why it tastes
mighty funny." " Well Lem, the longer it sets
around the stronger it gets." " Dat's funny, de
cook must have changed de brand, l'd never
knowed it growed stronger befo. Me tinks it
about time somebody git us a new cook den,
if day can't git a new brand of cereal." "I
think it must be your taster, Lem." " Well den,
me taster has changed since yester morn."
Disappointment showed on the faces of the
men that were sitting around the breakfast
table, as they rose to tramp off into the woods.
Everybody was at their post but Lem, he
did not show up, and the boss came inquiring
where Lem was. The men said, " He was eat-
ing breakfast when we left." They sent a man
to see if he could find Lem.
On arriving at the camp, Ioe found Lem in
the bunk camp asleep. Ioe went and got a
long icicle and hung it over Lem's head.
ln a few minutes it began to melt and run
into his face. Lem woke up and said, " Boys,
we must be getting a big rain, de camp is leak-
gkfhile Ioe is waiting for the icicle to fully
awaken Lem, he takes Lem's rubbers and puts
a little molasses in each one. By this time Lem
is awake so Ioe says, " Lem, the boss says you
get up into the woods or take the tote road."
" Where are my rubbers? " says Lem. " Right
here," says Ioe. So Lem puts them on as quick
as he can and starts for the woods as fast as he
As soon as Lem got to where the men were
working, they discovered that they didn't have
a peavey, so they sent Lem to the camp for a
cant hook. He was gone some time when they
began to think that he had lain down some-
where for a nap and were about ready to send
someone in his place when they saw Lem com-
ing down the toe path leading a de horned cow.
The men began to rave. " What have you got
that cow down here for? " "Masher sent me
fo' a cant hook and she can't hook."
It was getting late so they all decided that
they might as well go back with Lem.
When they all had gotten cleaned up and
ready for another meal, in dragged Lem, with
rubbers on filled with molasses that was run-
ning out the tops. Ioe asked Lem what that
was coming from the top of his rubbers.
" Masher me had a soo toe and I treated it last
night with peroxide and she sho' am working."
The boys laughed and decided that there
wasn't much use in playing any more jokes on

The shrill whistle of the rapidly approaching
train cut through the still air. The sound
brought many persons rushing out on the plat-
form. All this commotion was unnoticed by
Glen Gray, however, as he stood in front of the
dingy railroad station deep in thought.
He was thinking of Karen, and of how happy
they'd been before the war. As he relived those
years in memory his face seemed to change.
The worried lines relaxed and he looked young
He could see Karen now, in the living room
of their home, her dark hair shining in the
glow of the fireplace.
Now they were walking to the top of " Sun-
nyside Hillf' There they would sit under the
big pine tree and listen to the wind whisper
through the branches. After watching the sun
set, and the lights go on, one by one, down in
the village, they would race home through the
dimly lighted streets to a big steak supper.
Karen always had steak, that was her favorite
Then the war came! Karen, without a
moment's hesitation, had gone to serve her
country but Glen was left behind because of a
weak heart. He was left behind to " keep the
home fires burning " and to worry. The latter,
he did a lot of in the two years that followed.
There was very seldom any word from her,
but now and then there was an account of some
heroic deed in the papers and her name was
Yesterday, when the telegram came every-
thing in the world seemed brighter to Glen.
Karen was coming home tomorrow. A lot had
to be done before then. The house was cleaned
and the best steaks in town were bought.
Now, as the train pulled into the station, Glen
felt a moment of panic. What if she shouldn't
Several passengers stepped through the gate-
way. The band began to play, and there she
was standing bravely in the doorway of the
baggage carl A gleaming medal hung from
her collar. Suddenly she saw Glen and with a
joyous bark ran to her master, Karen, the
heroic dog of the year.

A FRIEND INDEED
Certainly if they didn't find Mickey in the
next hour or two he'd be frozen somewhere in
a snow drift. He left home earlier this morn-
ing for his morning exercise, which wasn't un-
usual, but he'd seemed lonesome and maybe
even sick. Mother had said she shouldn't have
let him go out, but did and now all the boys
and girls in the neighborhood were hunting for
Mickey had had no home before coming to
the United States from Africa and as far as
anyone knew, he'd had only one sister and she'd
been adopted by a man from Texas. People
were sure she'd run away from home because
the climate was so different and she couldn't
get accustomed to it. The men of the B Divi-
sion of the Army Air Force had found them
sheltering under an old barn trying to keep
The children's hearts were aching now as
they dragged their tired feet over the snow cov-
ered ground and shouted Mickey's name but
still he did not answer. lt seemed as if they
never could go on if their best friend were not
found soon. And spring would be coming soon
and he played on the neighborhood baseball
team, not too well, but the boys liked him and
let him play. It seemed as if Mickey were
always the center of attraction and always do-
ing something funny or getting into some kind
of mischief which his friends had to help him
out of. But he was always grateful for their
help and even afterward never forgot them and
what they'd done for him. Many times he'd
gone into the woods hunting with them and
had run away from home down to the nearby
brook fishing with the boys. One time the boys
had all gone into the large field to fly a kite
and Mickey had torn his new pants and felt
terribly about this because in his country new
clothes were a great blessing. The boys assured
him everything would be O. K. and that Mr.
lakes could easily get him a new pair.
Mickey had learned to play a piano since he'd
been here and this was great fun because never
before had he seen one and the music seemed
wonderful to him.
All of a sudden a noise came from over the
next snow covered hill, and the boys all
started in the same direction with shouts of
glee and calling Mickey's name because it must
be Mickey. Then they could see his little red
cap and his long thin tail sticking up from be-
hind the drift and then he jumped up and came
running toward them and he looked just as
funny as he did the day they gathered around
to see their little monkey friend taken from the
box the day he arrived and from then on every-
one had loved this cute little monkey.

STINKY AND HIS PET FROG
Stinky was a little fellow six years old, and
lived in a small town named Brownville.
In the spring and summer Stinky's favorite
pastime was catching frogs. Every day when
Stinky's mother was not in sight he'd sneak
down to the frog pond with his bean shooter
and every time a frog would come to the sur-
face, Stinky would shoot at him but he always
missed. Stinky couldn't understand why he
couldn't catch a pet frog for his little friend.
Chubby did, and he couldn't let Chubby get
ahead of him.
One nice sunny morning after Stinky had
eaten his breakfast he asked his mother if he
could play with Chubby, but Stinky didn't go
to get Chubby. He headed straight for the frog
pond but that morning he had forgotten his
bean shooter, so he thought he could catch one
with his hands. After Stinky had impatiently
sat there for an hour or so, he saw a frog jump
up. He grabbed for it but missed, and fell into
Stinky began to get scared not knowing what
his mother would say. Pulling himself out of
the pond he started on his way home, soaked
to his skin.
On the way home something began to tickle
his leg. He felt in his pocket, and to his sur-
prise it was his pet frog that he had been trying
to catch all summer.

Here ye! Here ye! loud and gay,
Here comes a story of my model A,
Drive up to a tank and order ten,
lust a little juicelene to make it sputter again.
Your back won't ache, but your head will spin,
Travel about sixty, just to break it in.
She may buck, cough and sputter too,
But if you ever want trouble, it's just the thing
It takes you way off, and stops dead still,
Hoping to the Lord that it stops on a hill.
I always get out and open up the hood,
And look at the motor which is not much good.
I went for a ride on a Sunday afternoon,
I had a Hat tire, just a little too soon.
There was a station just a half mile away,
So that ended the trouble of my Model A.

THE EIGHTH WONDER
OF THE WORLD!
One day last Iuly I decided to rake the leaves
on the front lawn, but having more brains than
brawn, I decided against it and lay down on the
lawn to rest. I was just beginning to doze off
when a car stopped out in front and a man got
out-a man you would expect to find in a
circus side show. He was short with slightly
bowed legs, and a very funny shaped head, al-
most like a pumpkin. This character proceeded
to invade my privacy, so I persuaded myself to
This fellow, as I soon learned, had come to
hire me as an assistant on an expedition that
he was going to finance to Siberia. He called
himself W. P. Garfinkle III. I was kind of
skeptical about going, but the adventure it
promised appealed to me so, as usual, my sec-
ond nature got the best of me.
We left New York the next week, and were
in Denmark in ten days. We got to Siberia
three days later. The aim of the professor was
to investigate rumors of a very valuable ore
called pitchblend. We pitched camp at the foot
of a huge mountain. We had a large party
with us, mostly all men.
The professor said he was going out and look
around, so I decided to look the place over my-
self. I proceeded up the base of the mountain.
I'd been climbing about three-fourths of an hour
when I found it. It was a cave in a large cliff
covered by bushes. I entered the cave and
looked around. My first glance discovered
nothing out of the ordinary, but my second
glance brought momentary panic, because there
before me I saw a huge ship and lifelike look-
ing men that had been preserved in the huge
walls of ice. These men, probably vikings, had
come here millions of years ago, and had been
I rushed back to the camp to spread the news.
The men were getting ready to eat when I
arrived. When I told them what I had seen
they just laughed and looked at each other.
Finally I persuaded them to come with me.
We all headed back up the mountain and into
the cave, but this time it looked different. It
didn't seem as big as before, and the wall
looked as natural as any other cave. The men
started joking and asked me where my men
and huge ship were but I was speechless, to
say nothing about being humiliated. On the
way back the professor told me that sometimes
the sunlight shines down through natural
chimneys in the mountains and then forms
huge shadows on the wall. He also added a
huge imagination helped a lot! I agreed, but
somehow it didn't seem right, but who am I
to judge the many wonders of nature?

It happened on a Wednesday morning. I'd
been out to a late party the night before, and
being very tired, I slept late that morning.
Martha, the housekeeper, awakened me about
nine fifteen. She never awakened me, unless it
was absolutely necessary. I was quite surprised
when I'd learned what had happened, although
I'd expected it for some time. E
Ever since I could remember, Martha had
worked for the family. When mother had died,
I was only four years old, the youngest of three
children. Martha had been the only mother I
could go to for help. Now that this had hap-
pened, she still was the only one I could go to
After I had tried to eat my breakfast, and
failed, I talked with Martha. After that, I wan-
dered down to the old brook. There, George,
my older brother, and I used to spend most of
our time fishing.
I remember one special day. George and I
had skipped school to go fishing. Old Ben, a
hired hand on the ranch, had seen us. He
came down to where we were fishing, and
talked to us about leaving our studies. Old
Ben had had no opportunity to attend school,
and he hoped we'd make the best of it while
we had the chance. After that afternoon, we
never skipped school again, and we were thank-
ful for it in later years.
I kept on walking. I was now by the old
gravel pit where we used to watch trucks come
for loads of gravel, and leave again. I remem-
ber George always wanted to run the steam-
I now turned around and walked up to the
pasture, where the horses were grazing. This,
too, brought back memories. We used to go
there and feed the horses lumps of sugar when-
ever possible. I now wandered back towards
the house, thinking about what had happened.
There would be no more of those wonderful
memories, for I had but a little time to live.
The doctor had phoned the results of yester-
day's physical examination this morning, and
the result was a serious heart disease which
could never be cured.

" CLASSIFIED ADS "
When reading through magazines and news-
papers, I often read the ingenious classified ads.
I don't know about you, but I think they are
very foolish and nonsensical. Maybe some peo-
ple like them, but I think the greater part of
them look at the crazy things just for the
laughs. I just finished looking at some of them
and I wonder if I can think up some almost as
crazy as the originals. I believe I will try it.

And we'll then be on our way.
But-to a new and brighter land?
Oh! that we cannot say.
People say we'll soon find riches,
And a world full of strange new things.
But still what strange new sadness,
Our last farewell now brings.
Our thoughts are onward soaring.
Are our happy days now o'er?
Well-that we cannot answer
But we hope we shall find more.
Are there rainbows for us waiting-
Waiting? Time will only tell,
But we will know one sad parting,
When we say our last farewell.

Dick, Bud, and I decided to go fishing up in
the Allagash last summer. So we packed the
camping equipment into Bud's Pontiac and
We arrived at Coucumagommic at exactly 3
P. M. This was as far as we could go with a
car, so we camped there that night.
Next morning we had the place cleaned up
and were on our way down the lake in a canoe
with a roaring Iohnson Sea Horse at seven,
At I2 o'clock noon we were setting up camp
on the north shore of the Allagash where there
is a long sloping beach of solid rock fringed
with large spreading pine.
That night when we had eaten all we could
of Allagash's togue, we cleaned up the pans,
and Bud and Dick went fishing. I decided I
would take a walk with Mother Nature and
strolled up onto a hardwood ridge in the moon-
lust as I was on my way back I heard a
strange noise that sounded like the Academy
bell back homeg I thought I was going nuts.
The noise soon stopped and I spent an
hour trying to locate whatever it was. I
gave up after an hour was over and wandered
back to camp. I did not tell Bud and Dick
about my experience, but went back to the
place the same time the next night.
I was just about to give up hope of hearing
the noise again when the pealing of the metallic
bell sounded from a hole in the large beech tree
to my left.
Being very determined to learn what caused
the noise I climbed the tree and looked into the
hole. I could see nothing.
The next night at the same time, about eight
thirty, I was waiting at the big beech tree
armed with a saw and axe, determined to find
out what was in the tree making the noise.
At exactly half past eight the bell sounded
I lost no time cutting the tree down. I cut
about two feet below the hole with the saw.
In about fifteen minutes I knew the answer
to the riddle. An old coon had robbed a camp
and stolen an alarm clock and had learned
how to use it. I-Ie set the clock at eight-thirty
to arouse him from his strictly sleep to get
about at night and get his food.
Iames Farley '48
WHO AM I?
I'm found just about everywhere. I'm
where people are gay and where they are sad
and lonely. Sometimes I'm thrown beside the
road. Then I get violent and dangerous. I'm
sometimes a comfort to people so they say.
I'm just about everywhere I guess. Even in
back alleys where school boys hide me in their
pockets whenever they hear a sound. Girls hide
me in such peculiar places. I lie on the side-
walk and people tramp on me. I'm used in
society, and I'm used in the slums of the city.
I'm not only seen, but I'm smelled as well.
G.I.'s said I was hard to get overseas. I'm
nasty and little anyway. Children should not
have me. I'm demanded the first thing in the
morning. I even cause death, when I'm used
at night and someone forgets to put me where
I belong. Athletes are not supposed to associ-
ate with me, but just look around the corner
sometime. I associate with all classes of people,
even ministers. I think I'm quite important.
Do you? Who am I?

The little wooden soldier
Went marching down the street.

Where a maid he chanced to meet.
The two went marching onward,
Marching at a lively rate.
And the little wooden soldier,
Asked the maiden for a date.
A big fat blue policeman
Came marching on his feet,
And he saw the two a talking,
At the corner of the street.
The maid she left the soldier,
At the corner of the street.
And went marching, marching onward,
With the policeman on his beat.

A TRUE INCIDENT
One night I missed the school bus, so I had
to go downstreet and wait for the Maine Cen-
tral bus. As I was standing on the corner, who
should come along but Iimmy, a classmate.
After discussing the weather, he said that he
had heard a true story that he would like to re-
late to me. I told him that I was " all ears."
This was his true incident as he drawled it:
" Well, once there was a dry farmer who
lived in the Southwest. This farmer claimed
that his country was very likely the hottest
place on earth, even hotter than Death Valley
or any desert.
" It was so hot that he could work for only a
few minutes at a time before he'd have to quit
and plunge into a swimming pool that he'd
made in the cellar under his house. Even then,
he had to be careful that the water was ice cold
or he'd scald himself to death because his body
temperature was so high.
" One day it was so unbearably hot that he
had grave misgivings about going out to har-
vest some corn. However, looking out the win-
dow, and seeing the rows of ripe corn, he just
couldn't afford not to go out and pick the ears
for they'd only die on the stalk if he didn't do
it. With this in mind, he harnessed his team
of faithful horses, hitched them to the wagon,
and started off into the corn Held. lust this
short jaunt nearly 'exhausted ' him. My!
What heat! Yet, he was determined to work
as long as he possibly could before pausing for
his cold water dip.
"Goodnessl What was happening now?
As fast as he threw the ears of corn into the
wagon, they began to pop because of the intense
heat of Ol' Sol. Soon the entire field was
showered with dancing white popcorn.
" Suddenly, he noticed that his horses were
no longer following along beside him as he
worked down through the rows. Where were
they? He whirled around and there they were
-lying on the ground before the wagon.
" As the popcorn continued to pelt down
from above, the farmer raced 'double quick'
back to the stricken animals. To his utter hor-
ror and amazement, he found that they were
ice cold. Flabbergasted, he bounded toward
the house where he telephoned the veterinarian.
" Upon completing his examination, the vet-
erinarian said that he didn't know what to
make of it. Then, he noticed the popcorn lying
all over the field and asked what it was. The
farmer explained that he was shucking corn
when the terrible heat started it a poppin'.
" Upon hearing this, the 'vet' shook his
head and said, 'Yep, that's the answer: Those
horses saw all that popcorn flying around and
thought it was a snowstorm. So what did
they do? They convinced themselves that it
was a blizzard and then, they just up and froze
to death., "
lust then, the bus "pulled in." As I dived
off the sidewalk, lim tossed this parting shot
over his shoulder: "Imagine it, I told that true
story at the Liars' Club last night and walked
off with the first prize."

AN AFTERNOON RIDE
One day in late fall around 1924, lim Iones'
father ordered one of those new fang dangled
things called a Model T Ford, that had just
come on the market in that town.
It was two months before Iim's paw got a
paper all covered up with words telling that
the blasted thing was ready for use, and a man
would fetch it up the next sunny day. The
next sunny day the Iones place was crawling
with neighbors from miles around waiting for
the sacred thing to come. At about noon they
could see a huge cloud of steam rising from
some queer looking contraption coming around
the bend at the foot of the hill. Surely
enough, there it was, coming wide open, and
roaring like a lion.
When it went through the gate at the Iones
house, all the women started screeching and
streaking under trees, and into the house as
fast as they could go.
The noisy contraption pulled up beside Mr.
Iones, and stopped howling. A man got out
and told Mr. Iones that he would show him
how to drive the thing.
Mr. Iones piled in beside the salesman. He
grabbed the steering wheel and said, " Get up,"
but nothing happened. Mr. Iones looked
angrily at the salesman and said, " What kind
of a thing is this anyway? lt's as balky as a
The salesman then showed him how to make
it go. Mr. Iones put his foot on the starter
and started the noisy contraption, then he
pushed the foot peddles and off they went, but
not down the road. They took off across the
Field over rock piles and headed for Ned
VVhite's pig pen. lust before they hit the pen
the salesman tried to jump and leave it, but
he caught his pant leg on the back fender and
went dragging along behind, right through the
mud and over the rocks. '
Half the time Mr. Iones was sitting on the
seat and the other half in the air.
They were now headed across Ben Taylor's
pasture toward Ben's hen house with the sales-
man still dragging behind. In a few moments
hens were Hying in all directions, trying to get
out of Mr. Iones' way before he went through
the hen house like a tornado.
The last anyone saw of them they were out
in the desert still going with the salesman drag-
ging behind and the front covered with hen
feathers, lumber, and every other thing you
can think of.
A year later there were still ads in the daily
papers asking for a new husband for Mrs.
Iones, and another ad for a new salesman for
the Ford Co.
