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
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
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!
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
"Have you any more?" she again
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.

WHEN WE XVENT ON A DRIVE
Gayno Eddlcmon A-8.
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
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

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
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,

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-
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
'tl love the United States of Amer-
ica. l love my country's Hag, i
love my country's language.
ill "That I will not dishonor my
,country's speech by leaving oiT the
last syllables of words:
. C21 "That I wi.l say good Ameri-
can 'yes' and 'no' in place of an ln-
dian grunt 'umhum' and 'nup-um' or
a foreign tya' or 'yeh' and 'no'pe.'
f3J "T-hat l will do my best to
improve American speech by enun-
ciating distinctly and by sDeak'ng
clearly, pleasantly and sincerely:
