THE QUILL 15 three men I finally succeeded in reaching the saddle. There I sat, my feet glued to the horse's stomach, looking longingly at my friends on terra firma, who looked like the Lilliputians in "Gulliver's Travels." I felt as Humpty-Dumpty must have felt on the wall. Now for a pleasant hour in the ring. Following about five others, my horse be- gan to walk. We were coming along fine, when that dreaded command of "trot" rang in my ears. An instructor told me to kick the horse in the ribs as I observed the others doing. So I did, and the horse started up. The stirrups slipped away from my feet, and I was practically lying on the horse's back, which felt as if it were going to sink right down when it would suddenly spring up. That terrible feeling went on until that lifesaving command of "walk" and "halt" was given by the instructor. I more or less fell off the horse and limped back to my cabin where I belonged. A horse was certainly no place for me. -Natalie Goodspeed, '40 TODAY'S THE DAY Today is the day to begin. Stop wander- ing aimlessly through the days waiting for tomorrow to come. If you have an ambi- tion to fulfill, begin by working gradually and get some success behind you. For ex- ample, take any famous person. Those who could be sincerely considered as worth while all had to begin at the beginning- "even as you and I." They had to climb the ladder of success, step by step. Some may have tottered halfway up, neverthe- less, they reached the top. In comparison, name a few who gained success, overnight, as it were. Tomorrow, they find themselves where they started because they had built no stable foundation to their mansion that towered into the sky. Then there is another class. These remind me of a small child, who, when just learning how to read, will repeat the first few, dirty, thumbed pages over and over, proud of the fact he has mas- tered these few words and lacking the desire to proceed into farther realms because he is unacquainted with them. I fully realize that I'm not capable of ex- pressing it as would a more experienced per- son. Irving said, when all the contempo- rary authors made contributions in honor of Shakespeare, that he wanted to add his share. Likewise, I have made a poor at- tempt, but for a different reason. One thing, at least, everyone can comprehend from my "witches' cauldron" of words, and that is: start today -tomorrow will be too late! -Ellen Pomerleau, '40 THE STORY OF A CCDMMON PIN First, I shall tell you a little of my history. My early ancestors came from England to America. My great-great grandfather was born in America in 1812. Not many of us were brought into the world until 1836, when the Howe Company was organized. Many superstitions prevail about us, the origin of which is unknown. "See a pin and pick it upg all the day you'll have good luck." "I-Ie that would steal a pin would steal a greater thing." "See a pin and let it lie, then in want you'll come to die." You
