'Av':v'v'.'.Av'.'v-v-ve'vQ-vAv'.-.rv-Y-.-1-.Av-v-v-.-.-.'.-.- A - WINNING THHE PRIZE. Theodore Maliainni, 7 A. When I was ten years of age I was going to a school in New Jersey, I was then in the low fifth grade, One day my te-a'cher announced there was to be a Wfashingtion pro- gram given in the school auditor'ium and that every teacher would choose some pupil from her class to go on the stage and give a speech about the "Rather of O-ur Country." The one who made the best talk was to be given a ibanner. Every cla-ss was anxious to have its representative win. The teacher the-n gvave us an hour and a 'half to prepare our talks. Tha-t very afternoon everybody in our class wasready with a composi- tion. The teacher read the1n over in silence, then she thoug-ht awhile and picked up one and la'd it aside face downward. All the pupils were watching with intense interest. No- thing was said about the composi- tion until the day came, At last February 22nd arrived and every one was wild with exs citement. The pupils were all ask- ing the question, "Who's go'ng to be chosen from your class?" Soon the bell rang an-d we all marched into the auditorium. As the cha'rman walked across the 'room it was so quiet you could hear the school clock tick When he got to the low fifth class, he called upon me to represent my class. I was so surprised 'and proud that I wen-t on the stage without looking rigiht or left, Although I had been on the stage before, still I hadntt gotten over the shivering feeling that comes over one, I gave my speech with shak- 'ng knees and a thumping heart, and when I took my Seat I felt pretty sure I wouldnot get the ban- ner for my class, ' The next d-ay we were again cal- led to the auditorium-this time to hear the announcement of the win- ner. 'Iihe chairman arose and said, t'Theodore Malianni has w-on the pennant for his class." Was I proud? You bet I was! 1-...Q-...... A SCHOOLROOM INCIDENT Hazel Barnhart, SA. When- I was in the Second Grade I was very fond of the nice fat candy roosters which I bought at the Mara- thon Candy Store. One day I bought five of these delicacies,I brought two of these to school. Every once in awhile my head went under the d-esk to have -a bite. My head Well! under -the desk too much and it ex- cited the teacher's cur'osity. 'tWhat have you in that desk, Hazel," she asked' "Nothing," I numbled as clearly as possible, because I had just taken a fresh supp y of c-andy and I was afraid it would drop out. I didn't have enough sense to let well alone. The rooster continued to be devoured. I didn't know it but the teacher had her eye on me. In a few min- utes she came down and looked in my desk. "Have you any more?" she again thundered. I showed her the remaining one. Then she told me to go up' in fnont of the class and eat my rooster. I went. Never did I have a rfooste-r that lasted so long as that one. Somehow I have never cared much for candy roosters since.

There are many children in the schools today, who need more nour- ishment. The Parent Teachers' Asso- ciation has 'taken notice of the fact and are do-ing all they can to raise funds for the purchase of nour'sh- ing milk to give to the children dai,y, One of tfhe 'ways in which they ob- tained money was to have the child- ren of Lincoln School bring old newspapers and magazines, The newspaper drive started off slowly, so in order to put more "pep" into it, lMr, Zumw'al't purchas- ed a p'cture which was to be given to tlhe class that gathered the most papers. V The newspaper -drive was then changed from a mere donation to fl rousing contest. Every chilld was anxious rc have his class win. About one week passed 'before the final day came. The .papers were weighed and Room 12 won by producing 3863 poundfs of paper, When t'he papers were sold it was found -nat Lincoln School alone had P.n':mcd 45412 fo the milk fund. ...L-.....Q..,....... A KNIGHT OF THE ROAD, Pearl Pychon, I3-A I first espied 'him as he leaned over a small stream, drinking as if he cofuld drink the stream dry. His clothes were shabby with a patch here and there, 'his shoes clogged with the dust of the road and his whole appearance showing that Ivory soap was a blessing unknown. As he fininshed drinking and stra"g'htencd up, I saw that he was a well built man with a cluster of brown hair hanging over his eyes, an unkempt beard that left no doubt that he and the barber shop had been strangers for many a week. As he disappeared down the road I could see him in my mind's eye asking for a "handout" at the next farm house. 1..-fQ,l..i.. A THRILL Charles Deatsch, 7-A. It was in the high Sierras. Our party consisting of my mother, father, sister, a boy of my age and myself, were returning from a four mile trip through a very rocky country from a little s-tream called Bishop's creek. Three rangers came up and seeing my mother and sister, lent them their horses- They .set off at a brisk pace which soon left us boys far behind. My mother hadn't noticed that they were quickly drawing away from us and we felt we were too big t-0 call to them to 'wait for us, especially when there were rangers in the party. Soon we were a half mile in the rear. My friend and I both carried guns fonly twenty-twfosj 'but for all that they seemed as heavy as cannons. We were sitting on a log and my eyes were taking in the scene when I happened to look at the thick dust in the trail, Wow! What did I see but an enormous bear track, fresh at that. I was -paralized with fear for a minute or so. As I have told you before, our guns were only twenty- twos, and to shoot a 'bear with one of these would be like hitting him with a pine nut and a sling shot. I didn't say anything -to my com- panion about it, but he may have no- ticed rny haste. It was a long and tiresome tri-p to camp but there was a grand and glorious feeling in my heart when we got there and were welcomed with Dutch-oven bread, venison and beans. We didn't meet the 'bear, but I got all the excitement I wanted from thinking we might have,

Shedden, DO XVITH OUT. Mary Matanovich . Did you ever hear any 'of these expressions? Cut it ,ut, believe me, .th'at's some kid, I ainit got none, I get you, say listen, sure, see. n'everyth'ng, huh, gosh, I'll say so," Of course yon have. lt would beimpossible to live in the United States and not hear those expressions at least a dozen times a day. The good old English of our forefathers has become so di- luted with slang, had grammar and careless speech that we doubt if those venerable people would recog- nize their pure spoken English in its gu'se of torday. At the present t'me people all over the United States are awaken- ing to the fiact that good speech is becoming crippled and campaign af- ter campaign has been -launched for "Better Speech for Better Ameri- cans," We Americans- take pride in our country, our government and our people, but we neglect our language, Foreigners who come to this country adopt .our ill-used degraded vocabulary as soon as they realch our shores. We need not ask ourselves why they do this, for we set the cxample for them. What can we school boys and girls do to aid in better speech. For one thing we can "Do without"- do without at least one of the above expressions a day and use pure En- glish substitutes. We can write slogans and make a drive against poor grawmmar, and refrain from swallowing our Wings." Now, all togeiher, raise your right hand and repeat after me, for the glory of the Lincoln School and better language: 'tl love the United States of Amer- ica. l love my country's Hag, i love my country's language. "l promise: ill "That I will not dishonor my ,country's speech by leaving oiT the last syllables of words: .
