A MAIL FLIER'S EXPERIENCE It was six o'clock in the morning and Leland Roberts was walking a- cross the field to the mail plane which he was to fly. It was being wheeled out of the hangar by the mechanics. The powerful motors were warmed up for the flight, and the mail was loaded into the mail compart- ments. e Leland then climbed into the cockpit and looked over his instruments He gave the signal to pull the blocks, which was immediately done. Then he taxied down the field so he could take off into the wind. The engine roared and the plane raced down the field to a perfect -take-off. He gazed at his altimeterg it showed one hundred feet. He gen- tly pulled back on the stick and the plane began to climb. The next time Leland looked it showed six thousand feet. He then turned the nose of the plane towards the distant city to which he was to fly with the mail. Five minutes later he suddenly gasped at the sight be- fore him. Little streams of black smoke pouring from his engine curled back along the fuselage, Then fire spurted from the engine. h He shut off the engine and climbed kicked himself free. Leland waited until pulled the rip cord of his parachute. It tled towards earth. He watched the plane . Two hours later he was back at the pilots about it. , out of the cockpit. Then he he was at a safe distance and jerked him viciously, then set- tail spin to destruction below. flying field telling the other Norman Anderson L7y' AN EXCITIOG BOAT RIDE . ' Last summer my parents and I had a splendid vacation at Lake Tahoe high up at the summit of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. It is a spacious lake fed by the melting snow of the mountains. The water is extremely cold and at times seems a deep green and at other times, a deep blue, Trees, shrubs, and flowers grow in profusion: During the first days spent at the lake, my brother and I hiked. On the third day we decided to take a canoe and explore the lake. We had pad- dled far out into mined to head for in vain. We were to use all of our matters worse, it ble to reach camo. the lake before we noticed a squall coming, We deter- shore, but the wind blew stronger and our efforts were blown at such a speed, that I became frightened. We had strength to keep the canoe from tipping over, To make began to rain. With the wind against us, it was impossi- Graduallyhthe wind became calmer and the rain fell more gently. We were then able to paddle for the shore. It was dusk when we arrived at our wet and cold, we did not suffer from this starting point. Although we were experience. Joseph Johnston L8yU

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'

A SALESMRNSHIP EXPERIENCE Having applied for and received a job as a saleslady, I started out on my expedition of showing people frocks that my employer manufactured. Looking for a house with especially low steps, I at last found one. Ring- ing the doorbell in announcing my presence, I waited for a response. UGood day, four-eyes,U I was greeted from a six year old boy. Neither was I surprised when an over-dressed lady passing by remarked, USuch a vulgar child.U She put a lorgnette to her eyes in order to see better, I suppose. After silly questions, the child consented to call his mother, whom I found to be a delightful person. She decided to buy two dresses, and as she was to see about them in the morning, I went on my way. The next house had exceedingly long steps and beautiful gardens. My answer to a knnck on the door was not a smile but a slam of the door that nearly hit my face. ' As I went home I was wondering if I liked either of these visits. E- ven if I made a profit, I didn't want to be either embarrassed or unwelcome ' Helen Johnson L7y' f ff? . fx Q a A X A., ga of Qld .,,. ,Egg eififfd FARMER BROWN'S DONKEY Farmer Brown had a donkey whose name was ULong-Ears.U Long-Ears was very lazy. He had long legs and a long tail which reached almost to the ground. When it was time to be hitched to the wagon, he would not move from where he was standing. Long-Ears was a mischievous donkey. One day while in the stable he saw a big patch of clover and he wanted to get into it very much for he liked clover. He ran out of the stable and hurried fast to the patch of clover. He began to eat at once. He ate and ate un- til he could not move. He leaned his back against a tree and sat in the rest of the clover at the same time. He fell asleep, for the sun was bright and warm. ' " " When he awoke he could barely move, he was so full. He got home but very slowly. When he went to his stable he fell into another sleep. Far- mer Brown came to feed Long-Ears and found him lying in the hay asleep and looking too fat. Farmer Brown was puzzled and is still puzzled to this day. ' ' Lorraine Guelfo L7yU Q
