A VACATION IN OREGON
If you want a quiet, peaceful vacation, go to Oregon where the tall
trees tower above the skyg where the creeks go babbling over moss-covered
rocks. You can lie down on the ground, and the swaying of the trees will
put you to sleep. You.can go fishing and catch beautiful speckled trout,
or go hiking over many beautiful trails and see sights that seem unbeliev-
able to you, Californians. .
In the winter you can motor to Mt. Hood, the only mountain in the
world that can be entirely encircled by automobile. You can slide down
the hills and dales, or go skiing and tobogganing in the snow, enjoying
winter sports to the utmost.
A Swiss once said that Oregon is the USwitzerland of Americaln
If you have never vacationed in Oregon, you have missed one of the
happiest and most scenic vacations you could have.

A SCHOOL BOY'S LAMENT
I doubt if I can ever see,
Why boys must go to school.
When I would much rather be,
Down swimming in a pool. ,
The work those teachers give to us,
Reading and arithmetic,
And all the writing we must do,
Sure does make a fellow sick.
I have often felt as if I
Would like to run away:
And instead of going on to school,
Spend all the day at play.

BERKELEY'S NEW PUBLIC LIBRARY
Berkeley has an added attraction in the form of a new public library.
It has been built at the corner of Shattuck Avenue and Kittredge Street on
the old library ground. Its architecture is based upon old Mayan art.
On each side of the entrance are pillars. Immediately inside the
door are steps leading to the librarian's desk. Beyond this are the fic-
tion books. The floors above are reserved for history and English books.
On the top floor is the children's room, while the newspapers are on the
lower floor. This library is an aid to all of Berkeley's students and we

, BUSTER '
Buster is my dog. He is a Boston bull but he doesn't look very much
like one. He is not a great big dog,
beautiful white teeth and brown hair,
but is just right, I thinks He has
with a white shirt that is always
clean. He has large brown glassy eyes. His head is like a hammer, it is
so hard. I think he likes his tail better than anything because when he
can't find his ball to play with he chases his tail. He turns around in
circles so fast it looks as though he
musical for he can sing like no other
ball or for a carrot. He cries until
nur breakfast, for that always tastes
I would call him a regular hero,
me to do something and I didn't do it
has about six tails. Buster is very
dog. He can speak for his sponge
he gets the last bit of toast from
because one time when my mother told
the way she wanted me to, she slapped
me. Buster got mad at her and jumped up on her and bit her ear.
Our yard looks like a Pee Wee Golf course because Buster digs so many
holes in it. Buster is very kind and intelligent and is liked by everyone.
He has been very happy, strong, and healthy since we have had him.
A LITTLE GEORGE WASHINGTON
In the back yard of the orphanage, in the city of Blossomhurst, there
stood a beautiful cherry tree. It was in full blossom and a great delight
to the children who were able to appreciate the tree and its beauty.
Little Georgie Porgie, Cso called because he almost always made the
little girls cryl, sat in the nursery for the smaller children. It was
George Washington's birthday and Georgie was trying to think of something
to do to be like WThe Father of his Country.W The older children were pre-
senting a play, but as he was only six, he was not allowed to be in it.
He happened to remember the little hatchet in the living room and ran
to get it, Knot knowing, of course that it was only a rubber onel. Out in-
to the yard he marched and started chopwchop-chopping away at the bark of
the tree. Not even a bit of the bark came off and he was growing discour-
aged. Being George Washington wasn't such fun after all if the tree
Suddenly a very excited lady came out on the porch and called George.
nwhy George! I thought you knew better! Oh dear! I suppose if that
had been a real hatchet the tree would now be lying on the ground, prob-
ably with you under it.u
Georgie was sent to his room in care of one of the older girls, but
all the time he kept saying, 90h heck! I was on'y tryin' to be George

THE BERKELEY JUNIOR TRAFFIC POLICE
It was one of the best things that could happen when Officer D, H,
Fraser started the first Junior Traffic Police Patrol in Berkeley, at the
Franklin School. The Junior Traffic was started in l935. This was not on-

California. Officer Fraser directed the Berkeley Junior Traffic Police
for five years. The next director was J. V. Brereton who directed the C
Junior Police for two years, and now has left the work to take over the du-
ties of executive secretary of the Traffic Safety Commission. 4 -

in the schools, now numbering three hundred junior officers, has been
brought to a high state of efficiency, a no-accident record having been es-
tablished during his term of duty.
Junior Traffic Police officers of the Berkeley Public Schools were -
highly praised for their efficiency and neatness of attire at the inspec-
tion and review held during last December before officers of the Universi-
ty of California Department of Military Science, city officials, and rep-
resentatives of the Board of Education.
Some of the officers at the inspection were: Colonel R. O, Van Horn
and Captain A. D. Lerch of the University who acted as inspection officers.
Following the inspection, which was held in front of the Veteran Memorial
Building, the junior officers passed in review before Mayor Thomas Calde-
cott and members of the City Council, and members of the Board of Educa-
The Franklin School patrol was awarded the Junior Chamber of Commerce

help their schoolmates get across the street.

A our .im sas.
One day while I was out about twenty miles beyond the Golden Gate in
my uncle's thirty-foot fishing boat, a sudden storm came up. -The boat was
washed over by mountainous waves. Soon the boat was full of water and we
got kind of nervous. My uncle tried to turn the boat around. tIt'was-a
hard job, but finally we started back towards San Francisco. -
We didn't get far when we found that the water was coming in on us
over the back of the boat. Soon the water got into the engine and stopped
