A Pussy Willow whispered ,
In a Cowslip's tiny ear, '
UWake up and don a dress of gold,
For Mistress Spring is here.n
the Cowslips mia. the Tulips
To wear their brightest crowns,
And the Tulips told the Grasses
To wear their greenest gowns.
The Grasses told the sleepy Trees
That it was blossom time, I
So the Trees put on their best attire.
The sun came out to shine. A
The birds returned to sing once more,
The ice-bound brook broke free,
furryffolk woke up from naps,
Bluefbirds trilled with glee.

MY FAVORITE PET
My pet is a dog, whose name is Pal. His dark brown fur is spottedy
with white. He is very intelligent and can do many tricks. He can stand
on his front legs and can jump through an old automobile tire. He can
also sit up on his hind legs and beg for food.
One day when I came home from school, my mother said, nBetty, Pal is
gone,H I felt very sad and dashed off to find him. I ran to all his
favorite houses, but he could not be found. When I came home with the bad
news, W mother suggested that I go to the pound house. And it was there
that I found Pal! Ha was so happy that he jumped up and down and barbed
loudly. ' .
eihen I took him home, I fed him. Away he than went to his own little
house in the backyard, where it was nice and warm.

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

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

A STORM AT SEA
There was a tiny speck on the horizon. As it grew larger, it devel-
oped into a small fishing boat. One could see the sailors running around
the deck pulling in the sails. They no more than had them in than the
dark clouds above broke into a loud rumble and lightning flashed across
the sky. The waves rolled over the little boat and made it shudder from
stem to stern. Just as the sailors thought they would be torn apart by
the mocking waves, they heard a familiar fog horn and knew they were safe.

EXPERIENCES OF JOHN EARNEST WILLIAMSON IN THE BAHAMA ISLANDS
On February 9, 1931, I went to the Oakland Auditorium to hear Profes-
sor Williamson lecture and see his motion pictures of undersea life. In
the first part he showed the dangers and ugliness of the sea, in the sec-
ond, the beauties of the under-sea. He also showed how the two types of
diving suits operate, and the mechanical lung. What interested me most
was the process of lifting rocks and trees from under seas. One time he
tried to dynamite the base of a wonderful tree for a specimang but one of
the natives misunderstood and placed the dynamite in the tree, and blew it
to pieces. In taking the pictures, he used a long tube descending to the
bottom of the water where there was a tank for the photographer and artist
There wasn't a minute of the film which was not interesting. Profes-
sor Williamson also gave an interesting lecture about sharks. It sur-
prised me to see how hard his native workers worked. They didn't quit,
even though they did make mistakes, and failed many times, and they did
much to assist him.
I believe his film was the most interesting I have ever seen.

THE REWARD FOR TWO TRAMPS
'Tom crouched in the shadow of the barn as the two tramps came nearer.
The two tramps had black hats and were about seven feet tall.
WThe reward for catching them is one thousand dollars,U said Tom to
himself. Ulf I could catch them I would be a lucky boy.n
In came the two tramps and went to sleep on the straw in the barn.
Tom went and got some rope, then tied their hands behind their backs, and
then hit the two tramps over the head with a stick. Then he went to get
his father.. His father took the tramps to town and got the thousand dol-
lars and Wednesday his name was in the papers. I guess he was the lucky
