W ,W5W' ' "" re M 9: 3 MH- ' A ' . 9, Oh, the teacher said, "A poem Would be a lovely thing. r Just air your inspirations, For you know that it is spring." But little knew the teacher The brainstorms these words caused, For many were the pencils That on the paper paused. The pupils wrote of blackbirds, And diamonds in the dew: Ol' golden, shining sunbeams, And flowers of every hue. Oh, words came never harder-- The blackbirds would not sing, The diamonds would not sparkle, Nor the brook with ripples ring. Now just to show the labor That's spent on students' rhymes, I'll tell you of one student Who tried it many times. ' "The lark's song so exultant Rang on the the morning air." But rhymes are so elusive He gave up in despair. Then he tried another And this is how it went: "The stag flees to the summit, Alas! his breath is spent!" And long thus did he labor, And b'1rn the mid-night oil, With this rhyme for the teacher After all his weary toil: "Although I know it's springtime, To poets I leave the task Of writing all the poems For which the teachers ask."

TY-TE ADVANCE . I l A FABLE Once I lay me down to rest, and as I slept, I saw a vision of surpassing strangeness. Methought I saw a man and a youth standing near the out- skirts of a grove of trees called the Wilderness of Training. The ladts name was Good Runner, and the man's name, Coach, and Coach was saying: "G3odR'1nner, ga forth upon this pathway until you have gone through the Wilderness of Training. In this wilderness you will find many ravines, lakes, and rivers which will obstruct your way. Try ycur best to conquer these, and if you succeed, at the end of the journey you will see the Golden Urn." After shaking hands with the Coach, Good Runner set out with promises to try. Soon he met many other youths going on the same journey. lt was only a short time before they came upon a swift stream which was called the River of Soda Water. Good Runner, with all his confederates, dived in and swam across. On the opposite bank Good Runner saw a man cfm- ing toward them, and recognizing him said, "Boys, we must stay away from that man. He will kidnap us and take us to the prison of Chocolate Creams." All but one boy named Spendthrift took heed and fled. Soon they came to a lake called Lake Coffee. The large waves of this lake frightened the boys until they saw a boat, Will Power, tied to a pier. Good Runner and all his friends jumped aboard and away they went across the lake. On the way theyjust missed running into a large rock called the Rock of Cigarettes. At this point two of the boys, Weak and Weary, fell overboard, exhausted. At last Good Runner and his five remaining friends reached the shcrc safely. Before them yawned a dark opening into a cave, bearing over the entrance the sign "Night Hours. Abandon work, all ye who enter here." Good Runner and his companions peered in, curious to know what adventures and mysteries were concealed within the dark recesses. Nothing could be seen, but distant sounds of broken harmonies, wails, and muffled drum- beats sounded vaguely suggestive of jazz orchestras. Wood B. Sport could stand his curiosity no longer and left the others hesitating outside while he went Within to search, as he said, the origin of those sounds. He did not return, and his comrades, after a time, took the little by-path marked "Early Hours", which they had discovered at the right of the cave and quickly climbed to the top of the cliff. Looking far off in the distance, they saw on ahill called Racetrack, the Golden Urn! It shone brilliantly in the sunshine waiting to be the reward of all those who could stand the test.
