From Bus Drivers 76 H
As the warm days of spring drew near, and
the call of the birds echoed from among the
newly budded leaves, the inspiration of
hiking crept into my walking shoes which
started me on my trek of unknown destina-
tion. As I neared the edge of town, I saw
the essence of fatherhood in full glory, Mr.
Burgess enjoying a game of baseball with his
two boys. Across the street Miss Butler
romped with her dog, while in the back-
ground Miss Barnes was feeding her cats.
About a block down the street Mr. Hine
was taking a few shots with his movie camera
of Miss Dontje's and Mr. Schelhas's golf
technique. I glanced up in time to see Miss
Kaminske and Miss Bowe leaving town on
their last motor trip for the duration. While
venturing into the country, Miss Cosby
passed me on her bicycle. I soon came upon
Miss Robson and Mrs. Buehl sitting beneath
a sturdy oak mulling over several ideal
house plans, while Miss Page was preparing
a lunch by the open fire.
With a parched throat and tired feet, I
stopped at Mr. Garner's farm. Mr. Jones
was tending the farm for the day helping with
carpentry Work in and about the buildings.
At a nearby roadside table, the teachers,
Handicraft club was holding a meeting under
the direction of Mr. Schilling who was doing
a few sketches. Miss vanWestrenen and
Miss Leiter were sewing. To further my
journey, I trudged on to the Thornapple
River. Upon its lofty banks, a crew of men
appeared to be having a good time. With
fishing poles slung in every direction, the
Messrs. Aten, Damson, Reinhardt, Goodell,
Gies, Knopf, and Hansen were identified.
Under yon tree, enjoying the shade and good
books, were the Messrs. Brozak, Lower, and
As the sun slowly sank, I decided to turn
my footsteps toward home again. As I slow-
ly pegged my way into town, I was invited by
Miss Campbell to investigate her collection
of cups and saucers. With this in mind I
started on, soon to discover Miss MeElwain
in her garden. Being very much tempted, I
stopped for a drink of tomato juice. My
destination not yet reached, I continued.
Upon nearing home, I discovered Mr. Taylor
riding down Broadway on his bicycle, he,
too, carrying a fishing pole. Apparently he
was one of the crew, but I had missed him.
The black, sullen night fell upon the world.
With the vivid thoughts of the day, I lay my-
self to rest and to dream of the hobbies and
avocations of our faculty.
