"My dear lady, could you give me the necessary data
which would facilitate my search for the present residence
of the highly esteemed Mr, Blank, who I understand is
affiliated at the present time with the school board?"
CTO himself: "Guess I put that one over O. K."j
With an insolent stare she turned her back and entered
the hut. Almost immediately a large man of the gorilla
type appeared in the entrance.
"I am Mr. Blank," he boomed. "What do you
"I want er-ah-uh--Oh, you are Mr. er-ah--My name
is Windy and--how about that job?"
"Well for the luvva Mike--are you what applied?
Did you bring me good references?"
"Er-ah-no, them don't come with graduation. I'll
show you the scrap they did give me though. It might
mean something to you--it never has to me."
While Mr. Blank scrutinized the diploma, Windy
shifted his weight from foot to foot uneasily, and mur-
mured at intervals: "Nice and warm today, isn't it?
Good looking woman you've got in there. How close is
the sun to the earth?"
Mr. Blank snorted contemptuously, handed back the
paper with, "Report in the morning," and slammed the
Dazed by the peremptory dismissal, Windy wandered
thoughtlessly on for about half a mile, muttering such
wild ejaculations as, "Yes, yes, why surely, I'll be
pleased to report. So kind of you--how thoughtful. It
But as his thoughts slowly returned, "Where do I
report? When do I report? Why do I report? To whom
do I report?"
His vest almost separated itself from two of its most

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?"

promising buttons as he glanced back and noted the long
line of admirers who were following him. C"Ad-
Hungry, Windy started back toward the village in the
darkness, but he stopped abruptly as he bumped into a
big black something. ''Blinkety-blank-blank--it's a
wonder they wouldn't turn on the streetlights around
here!" Sniffl Sniffl "Smells like bananas. Maybe I'll
get something to eat yet!"
Fifteen minutes later Windy feared that he had over-
estimated his capacity. The sight of banana peelings
piled high about him would prove his conjecture to be
true. "Wish I'd never seen a banana," he cried, clutch-
ing his stomach with both hands. "OW, owl Where the
deuce can I sleep? Guess I'1l climb up and roost on one
of those straw stacks."
He clambered up and was soon nestled comfortably
for slumber. In his sleep he tossed about, subconsciously
feeling that it was far too warm for comfort. When he
could stand it no longer he rolled over and realized that
he had fallen through the roof of the hut and had been
lying in the ashes. Wotta life!
Having no other place to go, he spent the remainder of
the night parked in front of Mr. Blank's home awaiting
When Mr. Blank left in the morning, Windy followed
him, step by step. "Wonder what that goof's following
me around for? It isn't payday yet," said Mr. Blank to
himself as he went about the village on various errands.
Once as he was talking to a fellow citizen, he saw Windy
peeking around the corner of a hut.
"Humph, eavesdropping, huh?" "No, er-I thought
I might find out whereabouts I was to report this morn-
ing." "Morning? Do you realize it's noon? Were you
hired to teach or are you serving time as a detective?
