KINNIKINICK 1929 "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 want?" "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 door. 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 overwhelms me!" 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 l50l

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

1929 KINNIKINICK promising buttons as he glanced back and noted the long line of admirers who were following him. C"Ad- mirerers?"j 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 his coming. 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? I5ll
