The family insists upon getting "Lum and Abner" when I want
Kate Smith, but I fix this. I change the wires, reducing the
volume so that "Lum and Abner" will not come in. Mother says
there is something funny about this, but still she really doesn't
suspect the cause. After all, this operation does me very little
good. Mother insists upon turning off the radio because she
doesn't think the program is interesting.
CBreathes there a man with soul so dead-Scottj
Breathes there a girl with hair so straight
Who never makes her fellow wait
Until she combs each tangled strand-
Who never has to stop and pose
To rough her lips and' powder her nose
Or manicure each tiny hand?
If such there be, then praise her well,
Because I think she's simply "swell"-
Slender waist-line, well rounded hips-
Lustrous lashes, carmine lips-
Witliozlt her make-up, figure, or pose, A
She looks like heck in her tightifllting clothes.
Blake-up can give you a dash and a swirl,
But only the brain can make the girl.
And those who marry a powder puj'
Find it's all they've got-and it ain't enough!
J oe wouldn't listen, look, or stop.
They towed his 'jlivoern to the shop.
It didn't take a week or two
To make the car look good as new,-
But though they hunted high and low
They found no extra parts for Joe.

RADIO AT MY HOUSE
ORE THAN once when I have been in the middle of an
English lesson I have heard the radio going full blast,
a woman screaming for help, a pistol shooting, and a
siren sounding-my little nephew enjoying "Dick Tracy, the
Man Hunter." Such a situation not only is nerve racking but
detracts your mind from what you are doing so that it is impos-
sible to concentrate.
Radios are terrible things sometimes. I, being a member of
a rather large family, can say sincerely that a radio can be most
annoying. In fact at times I wish we had no radio, and at other
times I feel as if I would like to have one which I can always
It is a usual thing in large families for each member to like
something different in entertainment as well as in food, and so it
is in my family. My father enjoys nothing but string music, his
favorite program being the "Grand Old Opry" from W. QS. M.
CNashvillej on Saturday nights. My mother has a fiair for Sym-
phony Orchestras. My sister likes classical music. My little
nephew likes drama, while I like o11ly jazz.
It seems as if every time I turn the radio on a good jazz
orchestra some one in the family will have in mind another
program he wants to hear and just must get. Then I think if
we only had a radio for each one I could get what I wanted, but
I realize this is impossible as my father is no John D. Rockefeller,
and besides with eight radios, my home would be a tower of
Babel. If I can't hear what I like I would rather not hear
Our radio seems to have more static than anything else.
It buzzes, pops and cracks continually. just as soon as I tune
in on Glenn Gray or Guy Lombardo the radio starts its popping
and cracking. At first I did not know what caused this. I
thought perhaps the aerial or the ground wire was loose, but
upon inspecting I found this not to be the case. I soon despaired
of finding the trouble, so my only recourse was to cut the radio
off. Later I found that when the wind was blowing the limbs of
a tree would strike the aerial.
Our radio, being an antique, is different from most radios. I
find that switching the aerial and ground wire changes the volume.

CIN IMMITATION OF SAMUEL PEPYSD
March 17, 1936.
Up betimes this morning and as I did see Big Ben had only
seven thirty o'clock, did turn upon my other side and sleep
soundly. Awoke again and did find a most satisfactory odor of
coffee assailing my nostrils whereupon I did rise and drink of the
beverage. I did notice rain pouring most heavily, whereupon
did don my cloak and schoolward, but upon hnding school dis-
missed did trod to Bunn's Sweete Shoppe where I did while the
time away. Thence homeward and dined. Returned to the rain
again charitymissioning with honorable father. An aged mulatto
did complain bitterly that the heaven-sent water did damage his
humble domicile until the lower floor did flood, whereupon
noble parent did reply, "You must thank God you are a Baptist,"
and I did laugh heartily. Homeward to partake of evening re-
past, thence to a theatre where I did most enjoy performance of
Shirley Temple in "The Littlest Rebel," and so to bed.
Easter Sunday-April 12, 1936.
Upon having a disturbing dream did awake and was most
glad to find myself alive. Did breakfast at six o'clock, thence to
the Sunrise Service which I did think most beautiful but did
cause me to yawn all day. Did then breakfast again and betook
mineself to Sunday school, thence to church where I did accept
the Holy Sacrament of the Lord's Supper. Homeward to dine,
whereupon I did visit on an old acquaintance whom I had not
seen for years. Back again to dine and did then render to a
small audience a duet with mydear sistergthence to Bunn's Sweete
Shoppe and until did become bored. Homeward, and so to bed.
April 13, 1936.
Up betimes and did haste me to school. Did work on
English all through History class as I did not want Miss Bondu-
rant to reward my efforts with a zero. In English class she did
seem to appreciate my honest labor and did reward 'me most
highly. After military-drilling my squad at recess, did journey
Bunn's Sweete Shoppeward, as usual, to drink a Coca-Cola.
Home and lunched. Back to school, and was most surprised to
find Miss Blair, French teacher, yet absent. VV as more surprised
to see Mr. Eckman struggling along in her place. French class
over,I did trod homeward, and the weather being most warm and
