Tm: 1951 SILVER .SANDS T0nM Rides High HE GREAT black stallion lifted its proud head and snilfed the brisk autumn air. The sweet smell of grass and new-cut hay filled its nos- trils, but there was also another odor, a strange one. Storm galloped to the far end of the pasture, where he had spent many happy years, and sniffed at the air again. The mighty animal sensed danger. He raced to the rise of land at the northern end of the pasture, where he could look down over the ranch. The white of the walls shone brilliantly in the noon- day sun. Everything seemed peace- ful. The master's house lay quietg no living thing was stirring. Probably he and the other men had gone to the southern part of the ranch to pick up some stray bolts. The Young One had remained at home with the old cook. Although he could ride well, he was still too young to help in the hard work of rounding up strays. Storm loved the Young One, but sometimes he would paw the ground and gallop jealously away when the master yvould stand and look lovingly at the boy. A Hicker of bright light within the gloominess of the bam caught Storm's eyes. He cried loudly and raised his hoofs convulsively in the air. Fire! By Anna Guinan, '52 The barn was on fire. Then Storm saw something else. A little figure was dashing back and forth, leading the horses from the smoking barn. When the lite reached the hay, the whole place would go up like timber. As Storm watched, the small figure emerged from the barn again and again leading the animals to safety. Once more the Young One disap- peared into the building. just then a Haming beam of wood fell across the doorway making it almost impossible for anyone to go through. By this time the men had returned and yvere trying in vain to extinguish the flames. Storm jumped the pasture fence and was galloping toward the barn. A group of men were trying to keep the master from plunging into the inferno after the' Young One. Storm realized what he had to do, for he loved the master above all others. Backing up a good distance from the barn, he started at top speed for the fire. Bring-ing his front legs high in the air, Storm cleared the blazing beam and plunged into the smoke- filled barn. The lirst thing he felt was a searing pain as tiny sparks landed on his shining coat. The entire right side of the barn was ablaze by this time, so Storm kept close to the stalls

THE 1951 SILVER SANDS Pretty Fish ! ATHER, Mother, little Jerry, and Mary were still newcomers to the Isthmus of Panama, and they delighted in going to Amador Beach, which was on the Pacific side of the Isthmus. "Look how white the sand is !" ex- claimed little Jerry. "Yes, and feel that cool sea breeze blowing in over the ocean," said his mother. "My, doesn't that feel nice P" "Mother," said Mary, "look at all the people. There are some in the yvater, but there's no room for us on the beach." Mother laughingly answered, "We'1l find a place somewhere, dear." "I hope so," sighed Mary. "Amador Beach is always so crowded." "Daddy, Daddy, may we please go in swimming?" asked jerry. "Very well, but take care of your ly Dorothy Haines, 'Sl sister," said Father. "Don't go out far." "Ooh, look, Jerry," shrieked Mary, "look at that pretty fish. Isn't he big?" Jerry, delighted, answered, "Oh yes. Let's go play with him. Come here, fishieg we won't hurt you." Suddenly a shriek filled the air. A stranger quickly ran over to the child- ren crying, "Little boy, little girl, look out! You'll get hurt!" Father ran into the water and with the stranger's help got the children to safety. Meanwhile, exhausted swim- mers ran pantingly up the beach, and the lifeguards rescued those who were stranded on the life raft. Once again Father, Mother, Jerry, and Mary relaxed in the sun, but this time no one was swimming. The water had been abandoned until the shark net was repaired. faauldcapo ' Lightly fiufiing snowdrifts Are piling up so high, And Jack Frost, the artist, Is painting a wintry sky.

7 ,,,, , Y Tan 1951 Srnven SANDS on the left side, peering into the smoke-fogged darkness. In the third stall he found the Young One hud- dled up in a comer crying. At the sight of the great horse, the child gave a cry and jumped up. He patted the anirnal's head, wrapped a blanket about himself, and mounted Storm's back. The extra weight increased the pain, but unflinchingly he moved to the rear of the barn and galloped to- ward the open door. Halfway to his goal, a Haming splinter fell, catching him on the left side of his head, almost blinding him. Rearing, he tumed about and began again. The child clinging to his back was becom- -ing an unbearable weight. As Storm raced for the flaming doorway, fire all about him, the child leaned for- ward speaking encouragement into his ears. Reaching the opening, the horse exerted all his strength and once again cleared the barrier of fire. A cheer went up from the crowd but caught in their throats as Storm's legs gave way beneath him. The boy pvas picked up, unharmed but exhausted. The men turned to help Storm, but looked, sadly away as they saw the master fondling a lifeless head in his arms. Storm was laid to rest in the green pastures he had loved so well. The Master and others who had loved the proud but great-hearted horse, can still see him standing on that rise of land, black mane blowing in the breeze, looking down over the ranch. On that very spot stands a monument. Inscribed on it for everyone to see are the words: "To Storm-never shall he be forgotten I" Mnifwalwod . '67 "M other I M other I" Jesus said, As she Tucked Him Into bed. "Good night, M o ther 1" W hat delight To hear Him whisper Sweet "Good night I" CATHERINE E. Bona, '52
