I ' IN ieeo
The grand year of 1960 is ushered in with a great
deal of success on our part. The depression, which af-
fected us in former years has finally exhausted it-
self, the future holds lots of promise, and dreams
of travel have entered into my thoughts.
Peshastin! The big little town of my youth, the
town that is booming. There is my destination.' I am
on my way. '
As I fly through space in myssilver, robot-control-
led air-liner, I let my thoughts drift back into former
years. I see once more the town, a small town to be
sure, nevertheless a fine town, crowded with memories,
the high school, in which I received my real education
and my friends.
In a short length of time I sight Peshastin. I
press a small bar
is a garage built
no more. In place of the wooden
brick buildings have been built. There
of aluminum. Tne streets built of the
very latest materials, beckon the automobile inclined
persons. Two sidewalks, one of green lawn especially
built for strollers and one of cement for the shoppers
lie close to the curb.
I inquired of a youth when the new town was erect-
ed. HG very impertinently replies, 'Haven't you heard
the big fire?'
I am forced to say that I naven't. After glancing
me curiously, he told me of the fire which took place
Leaving the youth I continued my tour. Posters pro-
claim the future arrival of a local youth who is now a
reknown organist. I remember the name.
In the newspaper office, I greet a cartoonist ---- a
member of my graduating class. In a large grocery
store I am also welcomed by old friends. At the new
ultra modern high school, I visit barious classes and
marvel at the improvements made since the time 'I was a
At the annual alumni banquet, I and my old cronies
get together and relive the adventures of former days.
As all visits come to a close, so did mine. After
bidding my friends adieu, I once more press a small
bar and resume my journey. The year of 1960 has prov-

A delightful, light fantasy is given us by one .gdf
our writers in
WE MUST DEOIDE FOR OURSELVES
Dew-laden grasses, tall willowy trees, a cool nook
in a forest with sunlight making great liquid splashes
on the quiet spot. Such was the little world of Pan.
His was the boast that once many, many years ago he'd
had a great-great gramd-parent whose name was Peter Pan
--dear Peter Pan! that beloved childhood friend of
Fantasy and fancy were the high notes of Pan's
small world. For hours would this elfin, gamin-grin-
ned Pan drift away into cloudland where he and his
sprite friends gambolled, and frolicked in their Utop-
One day Pun decided to climb that most lofty-ma-
jestic tree about whose roots he was wont to play. He
had never before climbed a tree, but suddenly he wished
to see what went on in the outside world. Up the tree
he went, limb by limb. Reaching the top he made him-
self fast and then gazed about. There in front of his
amazed eyed was a glass city: The crystal palace ofl
his dreamsg And to the-right. lay a great sea whose
breakers crashed on the sandy shore. Pun's thoughts
raced madly. Should he remain unspoiled and touched by
the great Outside in his own lazy, sweet world or
should he travel out to that great, beckoning metro-
Many of us are asked that same question. Pan
didn't know, as we do, that those glittering palaces
are wonderful mirages which so often fade and grow
faulty and tawdry when we approachg he didn't know
that' his own abode was a far more wholesome, sweet
place than that bustling world so alien to his surround-
We wonder: Did Pan go out in the world or was he
afraid of that silent menace outside? Who knows?
