KINNIKINICK 1929 Beat it!" he said, pointing in the direction of what looked to Windy to be an indefinite stretch of land. "Is that my school? I see no building." "What do you expect for a nickel? Get busy!" Windy entered the clearings with heavy feet. There were no children in sight, but he noticed slight move- ments now and then behind the trees at the edge of the clearing. Would he have to tame them before he could teach them? Probably. Little difficulties of that sort were becoming common to him now. To draw the children together, he whistled shrilly through his fingers. As the penetrating notes reached the children's ears, Windy was surprised and discon- certed to see them scrambling into trees. What on earth was he to do? All the tips that Mrs. Williams had given him in methods were of no use to him in this predica- ment. Despondent, he sat down upon a log and buried his head in his hands. He remained motionless for many moments trying to solve the problem. But when at last he raised his head, his pupils were gathered about him, gazing at their teacher with intense curiosity. Windy had a hazy recollection from his training school experiences that the usual procedure for the first day was to take the roll and become acquainted with the children. Acting upon this thought, he drew from his pocket a piece of paper and a pencil. Trying to appear nonchalant, he said, "Attention! I will now take the roll." At these words the little na- tives commenced to draw back, and Windy, fearing that they would again take to the trees, quickly asked the one nearest him to give his name. "Zulukablsnugger" was the prompt reply. The teacher, after several attempts to write the child's name, gave up in despair and turned to the next child in hopes of a shorter response. "Klucklezulubuggelburg- er" was the enthusiastic answer. Realizing that further l52l

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

1929 KINNIKINICK attempts were futile, Windy decided to number them, as he had seen done with the convicts at Walla Walla. The following day he began to call the roll by the numbers he had given them. One!--no answer. Two! -no answer. "Lungheads!" Of course they forgot to remember their numbers. l'll have to dispense with roll and trust to luck for attendance." The next day the children seemed to be absent, so Windy decided to surprise them by arranging a make- shift classroom. Large heavy, flat rocks seemed to be the only material available. Judging there were from twenty to fifty pupils, he decided to place about forty- five rocks in a semicircle. The work took him a long time and was very hard. He stopped at noon to indulge in some more bananas, which were becoming a steady and monotonous diet. As he was carrying the forty-fifth stone, he saw Mr. Blank approaching him. "Pedagogue, tomorrow your school will assemble in front of my home, as this field is to be seeded for bananas." Windy collapsed with the forty-fifth stone. School went along at this pace and at the end of the month little or no improvement could be found in either pupils or teacher. When payday came, Windy was there with bells on! Mr. Blank handed him an envelope with a strange look- ing coin in it. Unacquainted with its value, he knew not whether to laugh or to cry. ln return for his pay, he tendered his resignation. The captain of the ship laughed when Windy offered his salary to pay his way home. "lt will take more than this, my lad," said the captain, handing back the coin. "Would you make a good deck-hand?" At this Windy realized to his utter chagrin that his salary had indeed been unusual. He realized it more fully as he scrubbed the decks each day on the way back. l53l
