At last the Tri-Plano 1936 is nearing her linal destination. Anxious eyes helow are eagerly scanning the heavens for a glimpse ol the great white winged machine carrying their sons and daughters, brothers and sisters to a sale landing on the field of their career. Some few of her members have already Jx’en forced down: perhaps they became tired of the long flight and the ever, 'steady, monotonous whine ol the motor, or perhaps circumstances lorced their landing. I hat we do not know, hut most of them are being carried safely to the land of future destiny.
During their four year trip, the passengers have accomplished many things. On September 6, 1932. the 1936 made a perfect take-off with Charles Strusz as head pilot with Albert Margelli and Wayne O Conner as co-pilots, rhey had as Steward Mr. Eatlie. and Stewardess Mrs. Allen to guide them safely through the perilous journey ol their lirst year. I his great white ship just beginning on its long flight gained an honor seldom attained by one so early in its jourey. for it was from among their passengers that a Queen. Geraldine Cochran, was chosen to reign over the football kingdom.
As time marched on into the second year. Billie Lewis was placed at the head of the 36 with l aveme I laggard and I roy Sullivan as his copilots. Again honor came to the I ri-Plane. for once more the Queen of the football realm. Miss Olean Cook, came from their ranks. The sponsors this time were Mr. Lee and Miss Webb.
The next year, the third for the 1936. slowly rolled into realization. The old pilots stepped aside for new. as Paul Cerar took over the piloting of their ship. I le had as helpers that year Carl Presley and Gaskell Thurman, with Miss Grant and Mr. Ely as the advisors. The I ri-Plane was well represented in major athletics by Strusz. Gray. Mehok. Patterson, and others in that memorable year and also in dramatics through their presentation of the Criminal at Large on April 5. 1933. I he memlx rs ol the 56 are very grateful to Miss Grant and Mr. Ely for the success of th eir play and also to those participating in the production. Margaret W ilson was the maid of honor to the football queen that year.
I ime dragged interminably in the three years w hich had just passed in the journey of the great white w inged plane, the 36 but the wheels of time all too quickly rolled into the fourth, the last year. Ed Gray was made pilot
t ir ]for this last flight with Ed Bundy. Steve Koncz and Danial Moriarity as his partners. Ed Gray steered them safely through the lirst half of their flight hut having come to the end of his journey was forced to land. Ed Bundy was promoted to his position to guide the plane through its last few miles while Conley Taylor took over Ed Bundy’s place. iTieir last year was marked by the production of their play The Admirable C hrichton and by the editing of Hie Red Bird . I hey have to thank for the success of their last year Miss I loye and Mr. Rosan for their efforts in help ing make the play and the Year Book a success. Mr. Walston, also, aided them in editing 1 he Red Bird". Another event marks the success of this last year—the crowning of another from their list as football queen. Hilda Ramsey. All through the four years of their journey on the great white plane, the 19"SO. the seniors of todayTiave been represented in every active line by worthy members whose outstanding ability, both in literary and athletic work, has been justly acknowledged and appreciated by every pupil in school as well as by the worthy teachers.
As this plane has carried its passenges thus far safely to their destination. may it also land them safely on a field where each, having made a final decision as to his career, may be equally successful and happy as he has been during this important trip to the land of Tomorrow.
I hrough the golden gates of I oday Into the land of I omorrow The 1936 makes way.
And she leaves Iiehind all sorrow.
Aboard her every girl and hoy Looks to “Tomorrow as a joy.
They do not know what ease or strife May lill the days of future life.
All this forgotten, on they msh With just one thought, to do their best. Just as every little brown thrush Will work with song to build its nest.
All fears of care are far away.
Their thoughts are only of today:
And everything that life may bring Will be a song that they can sing.
Thus may life s span, so great, so vast. As it. unheeded, passes fast.
Leave all those memories that will last As mem ries of a golden past.

Ihe Presidents henchman. Vade Davis, is cautiously feeling out Ed Lickas. the Mass, tickler. See that vicious looking fellow over there chewing on the Charles ance cigar' | hat’s the mayor ol Chicago. The little voluble side-kick is Paul Cerar, city manager. I he fellow in the background is Joe hdwards, nationally known lawyer. Remember the famous Teapot Dome Investigation.' Well, that was chicken leed along side of the work Judge Edwards did in the Coffee Ground Investigation. Sure, that was the time he showed up Conley I aylor and Curtis Downen. Curtis was the fellow who owned so many corporations that he swindled the great American Egg Co. out ol millions before he found out he owned it. in the first place.
Catherine Carcllo was the judge in the linal trial. Later she and Judge Edwards eloped. It had to happen because era Novick. Civics teac her, was just getting ready to propose to Joe.
See the chubby fellow drawing near to Billie Lewis' I hat s lommy Lucas. I le is feeling blue these days, lie bought his wife. Cassie Spaulding, a submarine so she could study crabs. Neither one of them could get through the hatch, lommy sold the siih to Norman Corbin. Norman fractured his skull the first time he stood up in it.
J. I .Wright and his bride, the former Margaret Poole, are watching the scene with a borer! air. right s right, but Poole is a deep one. Glenn l oner. Broadways epigramatist. is explaining to some cronies. Oral Davis, Winston I lenley. Sid Wleck e. and Eld Bundy, that the suffix son on English names means that the person comes from the family ol the prefixes, for instance, Lloyd Jackson belongs to the family ol Jacks. Unknowingly to Glenn. Karl Simpson and Francis I lenson are listening in Now! Would you call that a Boner' W illiam Brown. Professor of I ligher Mathematics at Harvard, and I ludson I lowell. mystery man, have solved the Einstein Theory. Howell has fulfilled his class s prophecy and is stone deaf.
Elsther Rains has just come in with Donald Duncan. Miss Rains received quite a lot ol publicity over the affair with Kermit Book, the noted author. It was a washout. Dune has never been soaked in his life. Remember when he cleaned up on the Louie Calcaterra millions' Calcaterra underestimated his man. W'hen he made his millions in cellophane umbrellas at the expense of John Bob McIntosh. Louie married a classy dame. Charlotte Nordell. Selma was just one of the Smith girls.

for three combination are now entering. JJiev have just left Fllhel Jane Zwick s private nursery. I hey are followed by Mae Novak, the ink heiress. Maq s pet peeves are Viola Randolph, her academy matron, and Dimple Clayton. her riding instructor. Do you see the two Criley cousins coming down the hall' Wilma married James Reeves, the noodle king, and later divorced him, hut not his millions. She still received live-thousand a year in alimony. Wilma gives most of it to Vemice who is experimenting in boneless chickens. They see Blanche Robertson staring enviously at a group of other girls. In the group we see Altazarrah V harry. Margaret I hompson. Delia Yurkonis, and Jeanette Yoskailis. all members of DIG I R NABOR ANU. In the center of this group of admirers is Lavem I laggard. Broadway’s playboy. Haggard looks pretty well worn out. W hy not? It s hard to believe, but he is a henpecked husband. His wife, the fomier Ruth Knapp won t allow him to sleep with her continual nagging. I he big four. Margaret Schneider, Georgia Ditterline. w anda I .ngram and I lelen 1 omblin have arrived. Margaret invented, in a Rushing sort of way. a new beauty mode. Georgia and Wanda are two big buyers. Helen, the Indian rubber lady facial contortionist, demonstrates its adhering qualities.
As might be expected here comes some of the ladies from the famous (notorious?) Corck school. ITierc is Stella Coolock. the librarian. Ihelma Bullington. math instructor, irginia Clem, secretary of the school principal, Evelyn Parks and Dora Brotherton. football coaches.
Psst! Buddy Mullinack is approaching the ticket booth unobtrusively. He was dear old Alma Mater’s mascot. No. the school didn t burn down. Buddy ran out of subjects. He really did wonderfully in sewing and cooking. Right in back of Buddy we see Kenneth Kirpatrick. world famous elocutionist. At present he is telling Ward I larper. woman stylist, how to Sail on! Sail on! Sail on and on!
Remember Kenneth I rue Love Elam? I le and Sugar are on the
way. How do we know? Why, the triplets have just come through the door.
Here is James Cubby Jacobs. I le trains bears and in turn is trained by wifie, Mary E. GrilTin. Carl Castleton and Clement Brock furnish Paul Stewart with the hulls he kills in Ye Old Mex.
Douglas Anderson has just been propelled through the door by Billie Barton. It s his first date. I le s due to find that Billie is a judge of the supreme court, chief executioner, and lord ol all she surveys. And she doesn t need

those specs! Did you hear the music as the door opened that time? I"hat was Arthur Burke. Broadway s organ grinder. I lis two monkeys are Ray 1 iar-pool and George Koscel. 'l on see its against the law to have the real thing. Not that Ray and George aren t the goods.
Tile far-olT door opens again and we hear John Sharlo yelling Buy a hot dog mister. In comes a bunch of he-men who have just seen Max Evans lick the famous lightweight John Narussis in nothing flat. Mike Banyckv news reporter, is getting the inside dope on George Bellas, the new rube catcher for the Georgia Blue Racers. Bob box is the manager. Among the men is John Murphy, the most prolific libber the world has ever known. Norman rhompson tells one and Johnnie has a bigger one ready. Joe Mr Carnes is angling with C. L. Jones. Joe says Robert Sibley is good up to a million. C. L. maintains that Sibley s w ile. Anna Oreskavich says Robert is good for two-thousand a week.
Stumpy. Smith Woods, has just rolled in with Roger Dorris. In school days Stumpy s legs were rare because of their length, then rare because he was a brpad jumper. Kenneth I lollman. the speed demon, cut them off and now they are rarer than ever. Roger is a curio gatherer. I lis greatest find though is that iva ilia sneer. I he door opens again and we see flatfoot Bob Nestler saunter by. Enters a whirl wind. It s I rov Sullivan. He’s in a hurry these days. He spent the last seven years writing a biography ol the love between Dwight Thorpe and Irene Grosco. If be works fast enough, be hopes to get Joe Kurak to publish it inside another seven years.
Almost time for the show and the ladies are coming in fast and thick. I here is I lilda Ramsey. She has gone back to the soil. Rose ol the Rancho? Naw. she fell off her horse today in Central Park.
Ah! At last here comes the cream of society. Now the show' can start. In the vanguard propels small Mrs. George Cantrell, the former I lelen Lefler. like a powerful gasoline launch. Only she is nitrolic. She slams on the brakes and uses Ogle s famous toes for ballast. I homas Joiner, salmon king, sees little Margaret Constantino making eyes at him and is attracted as if by a magnet. But you see bis ear will only stretch so lar. One end is on his head and the other in the hand of wifie or former Elizabeth Dodds. The rest of the group is made up of Esther See All Plantec, Mabel Know Nothing Watson, and Lennorab Jell All Treece.
lime for tbe show to begin, but someone upset a table of flowers back of tbe curtain. ITie janitor. Gaskell J burman. is calling for his assistant. Daniel Mortality, to help clean up the mess. I sk! I sk! We expected better things of Gaskell. As for Mr. Moriaritv, we badn t thought of him.

On September 4. 1the present Junior class entered the wide-flung doors of F. C. I I. S. We organized our group by electing James Smith— president: Jack I born ton—vice president: Ransom Will iams—secretary-treasurer. Our sponsors were Mrs. Allen and Mr. Eadie. I lazel Allen was chosen attendant to the football queen. Myrtle Blanche ( .ox lead the class in high grades.
We returned to F. C. I I- S. in the tall of 195o. not quite as green, and with more confidence. In the year of I935 we bad an A-1 class. Although we did nothing spectacular, a number of our students made commendable records in athletics and several members won high honors in both band and orchestra. The officers were Victor I layes, president: James Smith, vice president: and Jack Dorris, secretary-treasurer. Our sponsors were Miss Helming and Mr. Fadie.
This year James Hutchcraft was elected president, Elmo Lamont. vice president and Leo Land secretary-treasurer. Miss Grant and Mr. McClintock are our sponsors. Geraldine Patton was maid of honor to the football queen.
I here are a number ol students rating high in scholastic ability this year. Max Flye was one ol our yell leaders. Those boys of the class who were athletically inclined helped to make football and trac k history.
Growing Pains was presented as the Junior Play and was a howling success. It was supported by a splendid cast and I roosted by each and every member ol the Junior class. I be play was directed by Miss Grant.
In closing this brief history, we ol the Junior class want to make this pledge: In the next year we hope to better our ability to be good American citizens and to meet the problems of lile. In the years to come we solemnly pledge to the things expec ted ol us to the best ol our ability and to make ourselves worthy ol the thoughtful care given to us by our school.

I he present Sophomore Class entered l C. H. S. as breshmen in the year of 1934 with hopes ol doing big things. At the lirst class meeting we elected as our President. Jay Draskler: Vice-President, Muriel McCIintock: Secretary. Charles Ashby; and Ireasurer. Dita Me Reakean. Flossie Witunski was chosen as attendant to the football uueen. Mr. McC lintock and Miss W ebb were chosen as our class sponsors.
As Sophomores no special attainments have as yet been achieved by us hut we hope to do so as we progress farther on in school. Again we elec ted Jav I )raksler as president of our class. Being elec ted president lor two years in succession is something that is not olten acquired by students. As his helper Martin Petrasik was chosen as vice-preident and Willie Smith, secretary-treasurer.
In athletics we possess some very good men. Joe Sobolo was an all around athlete. I le played on the lirst eleven in football, a substitute lor the lirst live in basketball and performed on the track team. Frank Chismar was also an all-around athlete, performing in all three sports and as did Jay Draksler. Jay was the captain on the football squad.
In years to come we intend to do bigger and Ix'tter things I hat we have not as yet achieved. II the students keep co-operating as they have we will no doubt probably he one of the best classes ever to graduate Irom F. ( . I I. S.

Right 7 ackle
Ed. "Cap t Pig Grey—Ed was picked on the Big Eleven all-conference team last year and this. Pig was one of the best at his position and was afraid of nothing that pertained to the gridiron. Cap t Grey pulled the Birds out of holes many times when he would break through the enemy s line and throw them for a loss or block a punt. Ed graduated this year at the midterm.
Karl Brother Simpson— Simp played at right guard and he worked nicely with the rest of the gridironers. Karl helped break up many plays that might have eventually meant touchdowns lor his opponents. Brothers run of 87 yards for a touchdown was the outstanding sprint of the year. Karl is a senior this year.
Mike Miglielich—Mike played "first string football 2 vears and was a valuable man to the Red Bird squad. I le was a very hard hilling and hard tackling center. Mike is a senior. He will be missed next year at gridiron time.
('ll ) (tics—'talcs, like his brother, a former Red Bird, was an outstanding player lor the I'. ( . I I. S. warriors this year, ell was in on most ol the tackles, doing nice work ns a lone tackier. Yates has two more years with us and we expect him to do great things for the Birds.
Left 7 ackle
hnmk Pop ( hisnmr—Frank, only a sophinorc this year, was the largest man on the team and a hard hitter. Pop made several spectac ular plays in the various games. ( hismar has two more years as a fighting Red Bird and much is expected ol him next year.
Slone Gooby Koncz—A -40 yard punt. yes. that s Koncz punting. Steve did the kicking lor the Red Birds and did an exceptionally good job of it. Gooby was placed on the All Conference Second team. I his is Steves last year.

Left Half Baik
I rank Peter Paul Mehok—I rani; was one ol the outstanding players this year lor the Birds. Mehok was the smallest man on the squad and was weather eyed by all ol the opposing teams.

I(k Sobolo—Joe was one ol the l osl at hitting the line and at olf tackleplays. Sobolo played consistent football until the last lew games when he sulfered an injury. Joe is a large lad and when he hit his opponents they knew it. Joe has two more seasons ol football.
Kick Levanti—Nick was shifted from one position to another all year and finally ended the season by playing lirst team full back.

Another year—another football season—would they win. or would they lose.'' I he Birds started out with a large number ol boys that looked promising. With several veterans bark, and Coaches Changnon and I lodges here for their lirst year, we were anxious to see what they could do with the raw material ol F. C I I S. Could they produce a winning team Irom the recruits? lie •re s I lowl
Hie Red Birds opened their 35- 36 gridiron season by bolding tbe Ziegler Purple lomadoes to a 7-7 tie. West Frankfort scored in tbe last few minutes of play under tbe local floodlights. F. C. 11. S. was up against a heavy line and equally heavy backlield. being bettered by 16 pounds per man. The Birds 7 points were gathered by Mehok on a 16 yard pass by Draksler with a place kick.
Hit em high, hit em low—and the Red Birds did just that when they met the Fldorado Striped Devils on the out-of-town held and gave them a 25-6 drubbing. I bis was their lirst conference game and it appeared that the Birds would show them all before the season closed. I he battle was played on a soggy held but tbe Birds plodded right along and soon splashed a victory over tbe Striped I )evils.
T he Red Birds journeyed to I larrishurg and defeated the Bull Dogs to take the conference lead with two wins. ITie Saline County Squad had scored but three touchdowns in three years and had not won a game. Draksler s passing to his backfield pass snatchers was the outstanding feature of this game. Mehok and Koncz tallied in the second quarter and one extra point was made. I lenley scored and Mehok accounted for the extra point in the third. Result 25-0.
With the West Frankfort linemen starring, the Red Birds played the powerful ( hristopher liears to a 12 all tie. Both teams played lor the breaks

Hard lighting and determination won another coni erence victory lor th«' Birds. 7-0. when they went through the first hall without a lirst and ten while Murpyhsboro gained one lirst down. I he Birds threatened in the third quarter and tallied in the last, alter having marched Irom the Devils 30 yard slri| o. Frankfort scored on a pass from Draskler to Meholc and the extra point was made on a place kirk.
With the Red Birds still determined to Ik in the race lor the conference championship, they tied the Anna aggregation 6-6 on the local gridiron. I he ( ordinal and Grey passing spree was ineffective as the majority were incomplete. Ihe F. C. I I. S. line, again at its liest. consistently threw the Anna ball-carriers for losses. Frankfort s 6 points were scored in the last live minutes ol play.
On the Red Birds I lomecoming the Cardinal and C irey squad won Irom Johnston C ity, 25-5. Ihe Birds working like a perfected machine, used many new plays and gained much yardage with a shuttle pass over center. Ihe Indians scored first from a placement hut the Birds started working together and won the game.
Still in the running for at least the co-championship of the Big I'Jeven Conference, the Cardinal and Grey defeated the Marion Wild Cats, 6-0 on the local gridiron. I he Birds showed signs of defeat when they were pushed all over the field during the lirst quarter. F. C. I I. S. soon snapped out and at tlx beginning ol the third quarter.

Nick Levanli—Levanti is only a freshman this year and played on the Red Bird live, which is very extraordinary in the field ol basketball. Nick played center and is expected to Ik a star in the next two years.
Keith Hof)—Half played on the first live in the earlier part of the season and was willing to do bis part any time that be was sent in the game. Keith played either center or guard. Haflf has one more year in F. C. I I. S.
W illie Smith—Smith was the dark horse ol the squad as he was on the team lor the last few games only. Willie was a good guard and will be a junior next season.

Coach Stanley Changnon. who is flying his maiden trip as the Red Bird mentor, began the season by eliminating most of his senior players and taking all possibilities from the underclassmen under his wing. He linally finished the season with hut one senior on the squad.
The inexperienced Red Birds went through the season w ith a perfect record of twelve consecutive conference losses. Frankfort lost to the noted Christopher IVars in her first game at the Benton Regional tournament. F. C. I I. S. won three non-conference games, namely: Royalton. alier, Hurst-Bush.
I he Carterville I .ions won the Big Eleven Conference with eleven wins and one loss.
Although the Cardinal and Grey cage squad was not among the stars and winners this year. Coach Changnon will have an experienced aggregation to start to work on next year, with live out of six letter men l ack to star for F. C. I I. S. Most of the Big Eleven conference teams will lose their best players via graduation and the Red Birds should Ik- able to make a very creditable showing next year.

[ 102]SENIOR ENGLISH CONTEST STORY
A NEW VEAR
The last fleeting shadows of night were being swept away by the golden sun which was just peeping above the purple hilltops. I he fog which had hovered over the valley in the early hours of the morning seemed to be melting away to merge with the fleecy clouds in the heavens. AH life was awakening. One by one the birds and small animals hopped forward to say a fond good morning. I he small farm in the valley yawned and the began to stir.
I here was anusual hustle and bustle on this particular morning. Nancy, the daughter of the family, was expected home from the city. She had been in school lor several years and was now' coming home to stay. Mark Wollf. Nancy s father, hurried a little more than usual with his breakfast, so that he might hitch up old Mike to the family buck-board and drive early to town. This morning instead of stopping to gossip with the neighbors on the way to town, he drove straight to ( orner Junction, where Nancy would arrive on the 8:15 local.
Nancy had tried to think, all the way from the city, ol a way she might tell her mother and dad that she was going to go back to the city to work. It had to be done: she knew that—but how Well, she d find a way. She was nearing Corner Junction by this time. She looked out the train window only to see the same sight that always met her eye eveiytime she had come home from school. I here was her lather looking at the coming train with happy expectant eyes. She got her two bags and walked dow'n to the door ol the car. When the train stopped, she jumped down the steps, dropped the bags, and ran into her lathers waiting arms.
Dad, she cried, noticing how' tired and haggard he looked.
You wait here. I II go get the trunk.
Well, Nancy, this is the last time 1 II have to do this lor a while.
As she sat there waiting for her father she heard him speak to someone.
I lello, John. Did you see my Nancy? She s home to stay.
No. I hadn t seen her yet. I ve been down to Jac k Wills. He interrupted himself to pick up an old piece ol log. As he pulled it loose from the ground a hoard of butterflies swarmed up around him. I he butterflies sure are thick this year. Jack and I were just remarking that we couldn t think of the time when wed seen so many. Sure hope they don t mean any danger.
I lello. Nancy. Sure am glad to see you home for good.
But, John------. No. she wouldn t tell him. It wouldn t be fair to
tell him before she told her mother and dad.
[ 03]I guess you ve got a lot to loll. Nanrv. You've been away a long time now. Onlv been home for short times. Well, see you soon. Goodby. So long. Mr. Wolff.”
Goodby. John. Come to see us soon.
By this time Nancy s father had the trunk on the old wagon and was ready to start lor home. As they drove along. Nancy saw the beauty and contentment all around her. hut she had steeled herself against it. She found time to study her father. I le seemed older, more gray, but there was a happy light in his eyes.
He turned to her. Do you think you can do all the apple picking and packing like you used to? We re going to have a heavy crop this year.
I guess I could dad. but can t Jack help you? I le ought to be able to.
She noticed his eyes take on a sorrow ful expression. I guess your mother didn t write you. didn t want to worry you right at the end of school, but your I ncle Mark had Jack to come up to the city to help him for a while —well he wrote and said he had a job making a lot more money than he could make on the farm: so he is staying in the city.
I guess the crop didn t come none too soon. I got a lot of debts to pay, and I figger that I can pay them all and even save a little.
Nancy knew what kind of debts he had. I le d sent Jack to the college out Fast and her to study music. It had cost quite a bit of money. Farmers weren t doing so well now. anyway.
By this time they were rounding the last curve in the road. ITie old white farm house loomed into sight. In front of it stood her mother and the two smaller children. I he two children ran out to meet them, and when Nancy got down, they jumped about her. She picked each one up and kissed each jam-covered mouth. She put each down, and her mother caught her.
'Nancy it s line to have you home to stay.
Nancy didn t reply, but turned and walked up to the house with her mother. I ler father drove the wagon around to the bam to unhitch old Mike.
Hie children went scampering off to play.
Now, Nancy, you go right upstairs and clean up and rest awhile.
All right. mother. I guess I will.
Nancy slept all afternoon, and the sounds of her mother getting ready to cook supper floated up to her when she awoke. She dressed quickly and went down to help her mother prepare the meal. When she got down to the kitchen, she found her mother starting down into the cellar to get some jam. She went with her to hold the candle. It was dark and dreary down there, as it had always been for her mother, as it always would be lor her il she stayed on the farm.
[ 104]Mother. she said and turned her fare away from her mother s inquiring eves, I going there to teach music. Miss Raymond at school got me a job. I he[e. she felt lietter now: it was all said at last. I he dreaded task was over. When they emerged into the light again, she could see how sad her mother looked. She hadn t said a word alxiut her going away.
"But. mother, isn t it what you would do
Yes. I supose so. hut-----
"It’s ypur father I m worrying about, fie has so counted on you being here Irom now on. and especially since Jack decided not to come back.
Nancy started to set the table, hut her mother stopped her and said.
No. Nancy. I II do that, T ou go out and talk to your father. He don t know how little you’ll be with him.’’
So Nancy went out to her father. He took her down to see the orchards. now full of beautiful blossoms. It looks like were going to have a line crop. Nancy. I ve never seen the trees in better shape, and I had Lem Mason come down and help me plow around them.
Nancy knew now she wo uldn t leave until after the apples were picked and shipped.
It was a warm afternoon not many weeks later that Nancy went down in the garden to the old well to draw up a bucket of fresh cool spring water and happened to look up into the old apple tree that shaded the well. She saw a Filmy grey web hanging between two of the branches. She dropped the bucket she had just lifted and ran around the tree. She was trembling; hard sobs stuck in her throat. She must get a hold of herself she told hersell. They might not be in the orchard. I hese might be the only ones. She drew up another bucket of water, went back to the house, and helped her mother with the evening meal as if nothing had happened. After supper she went out of the kitchen and straight to the orchard. At lirst she did not look up at the trees, but finally, as if some magnetic force pulled her head up. she looked up only to find those grey webs swinging among the branches. She walked calmly on. There were millions of them. I hose butterflies John had spoken of. Could they be the cause? She walked back and found her father. Somehow he knew: for when he saw her, he dropped the basket he was carrying and ran to the orchard. When he returned, he looked as if he had aged ten years. I lis eyes were damp. He had a beaten look indelibly printed on his features.
Nancy, it s lost—all lost—lost.
Oh. dad. maybe not. I II call John and ask him what to do. He may know something about it.
I he next morning John came. Nancy. Mr. W olff, and John went out to the on hard.
I 105]I want to get a good look at thorn. John said. I vo Ihvii studying thorn lor some time now. but I II have to write to Washington to get particularly information on them.
1 hey had worked hard lor days, and Nancy came in lor more acid solution. I lor hands wore rough and humed from the arid and lire's. Sho had mixed the solution lor her lather and John, helped to build lires. and oven helped them in the orchard. But even with all their hard work, they had lost, lost all the apples, hut they luul saved the trees. I hey trudged their weary way up to the house. John spoke.
It s still a puzzle to mo that they didn t got in my orchard and .la k s or any of the other orchards. But that s the way with those lellows. I hey always seem to pick out the l ost orchard and light there.”
Nancy s lather had gone to the house. Nancy, who was with John, whispered hoarsely. e understand how you I eel. John, and we can t thank you enough.
Nancy, your mother tells me you are going back to the city.
No. John. I couldn t leave il I wanted to. You know there has always been a olfl to love and keep this farm each generation. I m a Wolff!
Nancy went back to her father. I le was sitting in an old rocker looking down at the orchard with a worn beaten look.
Cheer up. dad. There's always a NEXT YEAR.
