1929 KINNIKINICK PAN IN LOVE HERE was a garden. It was a superbly congenial garden, but drenched with somber traditions. There was a fairy in the garden, perched on the head of a bronze idol and steadily peeringat a slippery, green frog on a lily pad. The frog stared back with silly, blinking eyes. A scornful sun sat mockingly upon the tired hills. flinging his burning vanity across the indifferent skies. The fairy was Pan, fiery tempestuous Pan! What was he doing in the garden? The idol was silent as the Sphinx. The jade pool whispered nothing. But there was an answer in the face of Pan: in the tiny, wizeuned face of Pan: in the little, glittering eyes. Pan was in love with a Mortal! What could be more tragically romantic? . Q . . . . 1 1 . Q Q f Q The moon emptied a basket of silvery beams into the lap of the garden. Pan was still there, brooding on the shadowy idol. The frog was gone. A shadow slipped into the garden and the eyes of the fairy loved. The shadow was a Princess-a Princess with dark, slanting eyes and hair like foamy sunbeams, clustered. She was ecstasy of Youth, trembling in the haunting sweetness like a reed. She touched the idol. lt was enchanted. She laughed in delight, teeth gleaming. She danced in delight, feet gleaming. Pan, in glee, danced with her. Cunning Pan! His tiny hands caressed her cheek-her cheek, that glowed like a sun-kissed poppy. At last, she fell, ex- hausted, into the sweet, wet grass. She dreamed of rain that cooled her face: tiny, silvery raindrops. But it wasn't rain. It was the kisses of Pan-the kisses and the laughter of Pan. . . . . . . . . f . . . . A nightingale sings the story yet in the old garden. The idol is still there, symbolical of the mysticism of centuries. But Pan and the Princess are gone. Pan dwells on for- ever in the forest and the Princess is-dead. ALBERTA AMUNDSON. l47l

1929 KINNIKINICK Full of joy and knowing that the whole world envied him, he went to bed. The next morning he got up and found that the boat was still moving. He had a rather sinking feeling, and was undecided whether to go to the dining room or to go up on deck. As he reached the dining room door, he suddenly decided-the deck! Well -he envied the whole world now. Maybe he could have gotten as good a job on land after all. The days rolled by, and the sun became warmer and warmer. Heat and water! Heat and water! Oh for the sight of land. Any little hunk would do! Almost exasperated and on the verge of ending it all, Windy reclined in a steamer deck chair, diligently perus- ing a pocket edition of Avent's "Beginning Teaching." Strange to say, for the first time he felt a peculiar need of inspiration from that source. "Eh? What was that? Did somebody say Cortical Islands? Where the dickens are my spy glasses?" He dashed downstairs to get his hat, and, incidentally forgot all about his coat. It was so hot that coats made unpleasant thinking anyhow! Disappointment number one! The chairman of the school board was not there to meet him. Humph! Just an oversight, probably! That school board was most likely very busy anyhow. "Queer-looking village, what? No houses! Where the deuce do people live? In those straw stacks? Must be some wild place! All these palm trees and everything make me think of cannibals. Hope I'm not the treat. Anyhow they said something about a salary. I crave food! Ah! here is a place where there might be some people, or does that smoke mean a straw stack's on fire? Guess I'll inquire." CKnock! Knockll A slouchy-looking woman in a shredded-wheat dress answered his summons. After giving him the once-over she grunted, "Huh?" l49l
