THE POTTER SHIELD
Adventures With a Genie
WE HAD crawled into our sleeping bags, and the smoke of the campiire was
blowing up through the trees to the blue sky where there were millions of
stars. I was just dropping off to sleep when the smoke seemed to take definite
form, and there stood a Genie. He was huge and ugly and had four horns and two
tusks. I felt scared and crawled further down into my bag.
Then the terrible creature came nearer and nearer until he was directly over
my head. He said in a low, deep voice, "What is thy will, my Master? I am thy
slave, for thou hast in thy possession the twig of the Geniif'
I looked down and saw in my hand a twig which I had picked up before I got
into my sleeping bag. Then I said to him, "Bring me enough money to make me
the richest man in all the worldf' He disappeared and I waited for the least
fraction of a second. A
He appeared again, carrying chests and chests of gold, which he set beside me.
By this time I was up and I selecteda most gorgeous robe. I put this on and or-
dered him to stop the war, then to prepare a castle in India and take me to it.
Soon he returned and, picking me up, set me down in India where If found the
most beautiful castle standing before me. I entered it and found it filled with
servants who bowed before me. One led me to a very beautiful bed chamber and
told me it was mine.
Finally, however, I got tired of it and ordered a caravan to be made ready, so
I could cross the desert and the mountains on the way to China. Then on the way
my caravan was held up by robbers who took all my wealth and kept us as prisoners.
I was cast into a dirty, dingy prison with no window and only an iron grating
in the door to let the air in. I threw myself down in despair and as I did so I
knocked the twig out of my hat, where I had tucked it, against the wall.
Immediately the Genie appeared and asked me what I would have. "O Genie,"
said I, "take me back to my home in India." In a second I was there.
One day as I was walking in the garden I slipped and fell. The twig fell from
my hand and dropped off a cliff and was lost. I am back home now. I got here
with the aid of the money the Genie had left me, though it took every cent. People
tell me it was all a dream. I leave it to you. H

If you're up against a lesson
and you can't make it out-
If you're feeling all disgusted
and licked beyond a doubt-
. Don't kick. A
, Never admit you're beaten,
though not feeling very stout-
And don't kick.
If the milkls not freezing cold
and the spuds piping hot-
If the cocoa isn't made just right
and the eggs are sort of rot-
Don't always crab at everything
'though you're feeling partly shot-
AND DON'T KICK.
