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. Judson Compton H8y' 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. Oliver Irons H7y' 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 appreciate it, Raymond Clark L9yU

, 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 the best. 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. Phyllis Conner-L7yh 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 wouldn't fall! 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 Washin'ton.W Mary Shanahan L9y'

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- ly the first such patrol in Berkeley, but one of the first in the state of 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 - Under the direction of J. V. Brereton the junior police organization 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- tion. The Franklin School patrol was awarded the Junior Chamber of Commerce cup for the most efficient school patrol, with the McKinley School Patrol receiving second place. Awards presented by the Traffic Safety Commission for the best marching patrols were awarded as follows: Company A, Lincoln, first, Jefferson, second, Company B, Hillside, first, Le Conte, secondg Company C, Thousand Oaks, first, Cragmont, secondg Company D, Franklin, first, Washington, second. Burbank has a very good traffic patrol under the direction of Mr. Carlsen. The Burbank patrol has about twenty boys who do their-best to help their schoolmates get across the street. ' Joseph Heasell L9z' 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
