THE BRIDGE OF LATIN This is a dialogue between two school boys who are going to try to cross the narrow bridge of Latin. Under the bridge is the river of Fail- ure. The two boys are Carefulness and Carelessness. lCarefulness speaks first: " " ' HI am going to cross this bridge of Latin,step by step, as I have heard that it has to be crossed carefully.n ' UI am going to rush across and get there quickly. If I only touch the high steps, I shall be able to make it.U UYes, but if you don't touch the low steps as well as the high ones, you will find that when you are on the bridge, the steps get farther apart. By the time you reach the middle, you will be exhausted, and,will have to give it up, or fall into the river of Failure.H NWell-l-a, I can see your point, and I think I had better follow your advice.n Edward Tscheekar H9y' ' ALMOST AN ADVENTURE One bright day in summer, Tom, a boy of thirteen years,decided that he would go out for a trip in his new boat, NQueen.U It happened that the wind was strong enough to make it sail at a fair speed. After he had eaten his lunch on an island, he fell asleep. In a few moments he was awakened by some talking. . I ' 'He jumped up quickly, and quietly climbed a tree. He heard some one say that he had hidden a treasure in a tree. Then to his surprise, he saw a group of his own chums who had come there seeking adventure. He hailed them and some of the boys rode home with him in his sail boat. ' Thus ended a perfect day as far as the boys were concerned in spite of the fact that Tom had met with no real adventure. thx! Q, Catherine Bianchetta H7yU ffl ff , s ew W . HISTORY LESSONS The O7 girls have studied how the United States won the respect of the world, and how the beautiful city of Washington grew. ' It is very interesting to study how the White House was built. It was very miserable and uncomfortable at first, but now it is a beautiful and comfortable home for the president and his family.

MY FIRST ACCIDENT Once upon a time, when I was a little girl, I lived on a farm. We had horses and cows which we kept in the big barn-yard. This yard had a long trough in it, so that the animals always had fresh water. I often saw my father clean this trough. One day I decided I do it for him. I got two boxes and stood on them. would I reached over and put my hands into the water. Just then the boxes tipped over, Head first I went into two and one-half feet of water. I kicked frantically. My broth er came by and saw me. He laughed hard at me. Then he saw that he ought to bring help, and so away he ran for my mother. She rescued me but I was wet from head to foot. D My father didn't laugh at me when they told him of my accident for he knew that I was trying to help him, - , Angelina Parmiani L8z' A TERRIBLE SCARE One evening while I was in town getting provisions that we needed for our vacation, I chanced to hear a man say that two mountain lions had been killed near town. It was pitch dark outside and I didn't like the thought of mountain lions. 'However I took my packages and started out for bout a mile away. When I had gone half way I heard leaves in the bushes.

MY PET DOG, PRINCE My dog is a Russian wolf hound, and a large one for his breed. Last summer we decided to go on a camping trip, and of course we took Prince with us. , . I We camped near a small stream where fish were plentiful. The next morning we had rainbow trout for breakfast. We planned to go hunting that day, and Prince was in the lead, very excited. Suddenly we heard a snarl, and there we saw a big timber wolf with his long fangs gleaming in the sun- shine, approaching slowly. At another snarl from Prince, the wolf stopped and eyed him cautiously, All at once Prince sprang, and the wolf slashed a piece of flesh from his shoulder. As quick asla flash Prince turned his head and, burrowing his fangs into the wolf's neck, shook his victim with all his force. He struck the wolf such a blow that he broke its neck, and five minutes later a great dead wolf was lying at our feet. We returned to camp carrying the wolf, fixed Prince's wound with a first-aid kit we had taken along, and rewarded him with a big dinner. Wilbur Mann H7yU CAUGHT IN A SHOWER One day I was restless so I went for a walk. I walked on and on un- til I was far up in the Berkeley hills, The sky was getting darker, but I thought it was only foggy weather. On I went. Soon I began to notice large black clouds gathering in the sky. Then the rain began to fall in great big drops. I turned and ran toward home, but the rain began to fall faster and the wind to blow harder. 'Happily I came to a large oak tree and under its friendly branches, I found shelter. The storm wss soon over and I started homeward. The air was fresh and clean again. Astrid Waidtlow L8yW r TEACHING A LESSON One bright sunny morning in June, several years ago, my sister sudden- ly decided to attempt to ride my bicycle. Being in an agreeable mood, I said I would try to teach her. In her first trial, I became too ambitious and let her go by herself with no support, and she immediately fell down. Undaunted by the failure of her first attempt, she tried again. This time, however, I held on to the bicycle until she was going smoothly along Then I suddenly let go without telling her. To my surprise she continued gracefully down the street, entirely una- ware of the glances of mingled surprise and wonderment bestowed upon her by her many admirers. I Edwin Roberts L7y'
