‘‘Grin? Alice and laughing Allegro Ami lidilh with golden hair."
rDEDICATION AND THEME
Many years ago, the late Mrs. Annie Longfellow Thorp, the "Laughing Allcgra” of "The Children’s Hour”, well-known poem by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, her father, became the bride of Joseph G. Thorp, Jr., then of Eau Claire, Harvard graduate, later a prominent Boston lawyer, and son of Joseph G. Thorp, Sr., Wealthy Eau Claire lumberman.
At the time of Annie Longfellow’s marriage the Thorps lived in the stately old manison now the home of Mr. and Mrs. John G. Owen, Oakwood Place, Eau Claire. There, in the years that followed the wedding, Mrs. Annie Longfellow Thorp probably visited. In 1930, during a conversation in Cambridge, then Mrs. Thorp’s home, with Mrs. Lund, wife of Otto Lund, editor of the Eau Claire Telegram, Mrs. Thorp said she had visited in Eau Claire several times.
To make a permanent record of this association of the daughter of Longfellow—and through her, of her father—with Eau Claire, the staff dedicates this volume to their memory and makes this memory its theme.
In pursuance of this plan, the opening section of the book has i?ccn illustrated with five pictures of views of the Owen residence, the former Thorp home; and the seven subsequent division pages, with pictures illustrative of seven poems by Ixjngfellow. In each ease, the poem, or an excerpt from it, immediately precedes the picture.
The stafF believes it a privilege to have this opportunity of paying even a belated tribute to one of the English speaking people’s most beloved poets; one whose genius is now being recognized more than at any other time since the zenith of his fame was reached, during the later decades of the nineteenth cyntury.Longfellow in His Study Key View Co.

From my study I see the lamplight. Descending the broad hall stair,
Crave Alice, and laughing Allegro,
An luhtli with golden hair.
A whistler, and then a silence Yet I know by their merry eyes Thev are lotting and planning together To take me by surprise.
.A sudden rush from the stairway,
A sudden raid from the hall!
By three doors left unguarded They enter my castle wall!
They climb up into my turret
O'er the arms and back oj my chair;
If I try to escape, they surround me; They seem to be everywhere.
Do you think 0 blue-eyed banditti, Because you hat e scaled the wall, .Such an old moustache as I am Is not a match for you all'
I have you fast in my fortress.
And will not let you dc iarl.
But put you down in the dungeon. In the round tower of my heart
And there I will keep you forever, Yes. forever and a day.

Johtuon StudioMY LOST YOUTH
Often I think of the beautiful town That is sotted by the sea;
Often in thought go up and down
The pleasant streets of that dear old town.
And my youth comes back to me.
And a verse of a Lapland song Is haunting my memory' still:
"A boy’s will is the winds will.
And the thoughts of youth arc long, long thoughts.
I remember the black wharves and the slips.
And the sea-tides tossing free.
And Spanish sailors with bearded lips.
And the beauty and mystery of the ships. And the magic of the sea.
I ctm sec the brcc2v dome of groves.
The shadows of [Peering s Woods;
And the friendships old and the early loves Come back with a Sabbath sound, as of doves In quiet neighborhoods.
Strange to me now arc the forms I meet When I visit the dear old town;
But the native air is pure and sweet.
And the trees that oershadow each well-known street,
As they balance up and down.
And Dccring’s Woods are fresh and fair;
And with joy that is almost pun My heart goes back to wander there.
Arid among the dreams of the days that were 1 find my lost youth again.
And the strange and beautiful song The groves arc repeating it still:
"A boy’s will is the wind’s will.
And the thoughts of youth arc long, long thoughts.Keystone View Co.

forty-nineWRECK OF THE HESPERUS
It was the schooner I lesperus.
That sailed the wintry sea;
And the skipper had taken his little duughtcr. To bear him company.
The skipper he stood beside the helm.
I lis pipe was in his mouth.
And he watched how the Veering flaw did blow The smoke now west, now south.
Colder and louder blew the wind.
A Rale from the Northeast .
Hie snow fell hissing in the brine.
And the billows frothed like yeast.
And fast through the midnight dark and drear.
Through the whistling sleet and snow.
Like a sheeted ghost the vessel swept.
Tow'rds the reef of Norman's Woe.
And ever the fitful gusts between A sound came from the land.
It was the sound of the trampling surf On the rocks and hard sea-sand.
She struck where the white and fleecy waves I, x kcd soft as Girded wool;
But the cruel rocks they gored her side Like the horns of an angry bull.
Her nittling shrouds all sheathed in ice.
With the masts went by the board;
I .ike a vessel of glass, she stove and sank— "Ho! ho'" the breakers roared!
Such w is the wreck of the Hesperus.
In the midnight and the snow! Christ save US all from a death like this. On the reef of Norman's Woe.The Reef of Norman's Woe

When Strut and Fret was organized in 1928, its primary aim was to give its members experience in dramatic production and acting. Other purposes were to present the best plays and to encourage an interest in dramatic activities among the students.
Several members were in charge, this year, of dramatics in the Training School. This year's major college production was "Zero in Black , a thrce-act play, written and directed by Dr. Davenport of the faculty. This play was on tour this spring.
New members earned their admittance to the club the second semester through their acting in one-act plays presented at various places in this vicinity.

"Boys will he boys" is an old saying, but with the girls wearing snow suits it is difficult to tell which of the students in the picture at the right are boys. Judging by the number of books being taken home, the girls of the quartet must be the more studious.
The hockey game shown at the right, was played on the college skating rink Members of the city relief crew kept the rink in good condition bv flooding it frequently. For the benefit of the Training School a lurge slide was built on the campus.
In the picture at the right, may be seen in the distance, a gathering of students at the college skating rink. In the foreground another group is making good use of the "short-cut" across the campus. With the weather at thirty degrees below rcro. who wouldn't make use of a "short-cut "?
A few of the more dignified members of the student body and faculty prefer the sidewalk in place of the "short-cut" 'Ibe lust person in the procession is Miss James, hurrying to one of her Math, classes
The new parking area is a great convenience to students who have their cars ut school, but even this expenditure of money did not settle the parking problem. Some of the newer problems arc "Who shall have the best parking place?" or" Gan a purging place be reserved"?

I .istcn. my children, and you shall hear Of the midnight ride of Paul Revere.
On the eighteenth of April, in Seventy-five;
I (urdly a man is now alive
Who remembers that famous day und year.
11c said to his friend. "II the British march By land or sea from the town to-night.
I ting n lantern aloft in the belfry arch Of the North Church tower as u signal light— One if by land and two if by sea;
And I on the opposite shore will lx-.
Ready to ride and spread the alarm Through every Middlesex village and farm, For the country-folk to be up and to arm "
• • •
Meanwhile, impatient to mount and ride.
Booted and spurred, with u heavy stride.
On the opposite shore walked Paul Revere Now he patted his hors s side.
Now gazed at the landscape far and near,
Then, impetuous, stamped the earth.
And turned and tightened his saddle-girth;
I kit mostly he watched with eager search The belfry-tower of the Old North Church,
As it rose’above the graves on the hill Lonely and spectral and sombre and still And k)' as he l x ks. on the belfry height A glimmer und then a gleam of light!
Me springs to his saddle, the bridle he turns.
But lingers and gazes, till full on his sight A scc ni lamp in the belfry burns'
A hurry of hoofs in a village street.
A shape in the moonlight, a bulk in the dark.
And beneath, from the pebbles, in passing, a spark Struck out by a steed flying fearless und fleet!
That was all' And yet. through the gloom und the light.
The fate of u nution was riding that night;
And the spark struck out by that steed. In his flight. Kindled the land into flume with its heatathletics

The Football Season
A "New Deal" in foot Kill came to Han Quire State Teachers’ College this year, lire football team made n record that is the best that Eau Claire has had since 1924. The Golden Tornadoes, by rolling up a total score of 120 points ugainst 67 points for their opponents, won five games out of eight, a percentage of .62$ for the whole season
‘Ihc secret of Eau Claire's success was work—hard work, (xwich Zorn uus assisted by Mark Haight, one of the best linesmen in the history of the school, and by Delos Walker, co-captain and backfield man of last year's team. With these three leading the way. the Zornmen Nverc kept on their toes and came to know the meaning of a workout. The men learned that the couclies meant business when several of the first string men were benched for infractions of training rules.
An exceptionally large turnout of veterans and many
newcomers gave Coach Zorn better football material than he had had in years. ITic greatest difficulty that confronted him was to find capable tackles and ends. Dickie und I'cnskc, both veteran tackles, were out of the game because of injuries, and later Don Barnes was moved into the backfield Wick was the only veteran end to return. Cooch Zorn had. however, some material with possibilities, und developed ends that capably filled their positions, although they were lightweights. Several of the veterans were shifted to new positions to fill voids into which none of the inexperienced players seemed to fit. Three former backfield men were shifted to the line to get the necessary weight there. ’I »c loss of Nilsscn because of injuries necessitated the shifting of Barnes to the backfield Punting problems did not materialize because of the work of Green and Fairchild.

Mvrnty-»ixTrack and Field
The t rack and field sca-5 n here last spring was accompanied by more interest than huts been seen for many years. Many of the school's athletes were to be seen practicing as soon u.“ the field was dry enough and long before Coach Zorn had issued his call. The season got under way with the interclass meet, continued with a dual meet with Winona, and culminated with the State Teachers’ College meet at Madison
Inter i ass Tournament 'Hie season officially opened with the intcrclass tournament. I"he Freshmen swamped the other classes by taking more points than the total made by all the others. l on Barnes and Johnny Walter were the stars by virluc of the fact that they established some new school records. ITon Barnes broke two records, throwing the discus 113 feet 8 inches and putting the shot 40 feet Johnny Walter established a new school record for the broad-jump with a leap of 19 feet 10 inches. Ray Schmicdlin also showed up well as a speedster.
Winona Meet The dual meet with Winona, at Winona, was intended to be a triangular meet, the C.C.C. camp from near there making the third team, but the camp was quarantined shortly before the contest. Eau Claire, with a comparatively small team, was outclassed in most of the events. Eau Claire contestants won but three first places
in fifteen events. Brandstedter took a first in the high lump by clearing 5 feet 7 inches and Don Barnes put the shot 38 feet 3 inches for the third first place Other places won by members of the Eau Claire team were a second in the high hurdles by Jim Barnes; n third In the 100-yard dash by Schmicdlin. Boettcher second and Nils-sen third, in the 440-yard dash Lund third in the 800 Dickie second with the shot put; Don Barnes second with the discus and Nadlcr third in the broad jump The poorest showing wus made in the mile and the iwo-milc runs
State Meet In the state meet. Eau Claire for the first time in several years placed winners. Eau Claire scored five points to tuke fifth place in a meet which was won decisively by the Milwaukee S:atc Teachers' (allege for the seventh consecutive time, w'ith 5.8 ■ points Don Barnes took second place in the discus throw, with a toss of 117 feet 9 inches, to score threepoints.
Schmicdlin made another point when he took fourth place in the 220-ynrd dash The remaining point was made by the relay team, consisting of Walter, Nils-sen. Boettcher, and Schmicdlin Nilsscn in the 440-vard run and Voigt in the high jump each placed fifth in his event, which was just out of the scoring

The largest basketball squad in years turned out in response to Couch Zorn's first call for men. About eighty men reported This number was cut in hulf after the first few practices Further dismissals cut the "A" sjuad to fifteen, while twelve more were assigned to the “B“ squad.
Most of tlx: new men were Freshmen, only Schmicd-lin. Purkovich Voigt Kopolin.

Out of eight conference games played, the Zommen were victors in three, two being with Stout, and one with River Falls The best game of the year was their 47 to 4o win over River Falls on the Falcon's home floor. Another well-ployed game was the l.aCrosse game on the home floor. Although the locals were defeated 35 to 31, they held the sensational "Johnny" Watts without a field goal, and in addition, made going miserable for the Racquets.
Coach Zorn was ably assisted by Don Bergman, a former star on the University of Wisconsin From team, who acted in the role of assistant coach. Bergman showed the team the intricate style of iiadger play, which they learned quite readily.
Unusual prospects for next year arc in store, because only three men w'lll be lost to the 19)5-30 squad 1"hcy urc Captain Bushman and Kopplin, who will graduate. und Voigt, who hus played his three years.

Fair wns she to behold, that maiden of seventeen summers
Black were her eyes as the berry that grows on the
thorn by the wayside -
Black, yet how softly they gleamed beneath the
brown shade of her tresses!
• • •
Silent she passed the hall, and entered the door of her chamber.
Simple that chamber was. with its curtains of white.
and its clothes press.
Ample and high, on spacious shelves, were carefully folded
I.inert and woolen stuffs, by the hand of Evangeline woven:
This wits the precious dower she would bring to her husband in marriugc.
Better than flocks and herds, being proof of her skill as a housewife.
Soon she extinguished her lump, for the mellow and radiant moonlight Streamed through the windows and lighted the room, till the heart of the maiden Swelled and obeyed its power, like the tremulous title of the ocean.
Ah she was fuir. exceeding fair to behold, as she stood with
Naked snow-white feet on the gleaming floor of her chamber'
Little she dreamed that below, umong the trees of the orchard
Waited her lover and watched for the gleam of her lump and her shadow Yet were her thoughts of him. and at times a feeling of sadness Passed o'er her soul, as the willing shade of clouds in the moonlight Flitted across the floor and darkened the room for a moment
And as she gazed from the window, she saw serenely the moon pass Forth from the folds of u cloud, and one star follow her footsteps.

As ancient is this hostelry As any in the land may be.
Built in the old Colonial day.
When men lived in a grander way. With ampler hospitality;
A kind of old Hobgoblin Hall.
Now somewhat fallen to decay.
Wit- weather-stains upon the wall.
And stairways worn, and crazy doors, And creaking and uneven floors.
And chimneys huge, and tiled, and tall.
A region of repose it seems.
A place of slumber and of dreams.
Remote among the wooded hills!
I'or there no noisy railway speeds,
Its torch-race scattering smoke and glceds. But noon and night, the panting teams Stop under the great oaks, that throw Tangles of light and shade below.
On roofs and doors and window-sills. Across the road the barns display Their lines of stalls, their mows of hay Through the wide doors the breezes blow'. The wattled cocks strut to and fro.
And. ball effaced by rain and shine.
The Red Horse prances on the sign.

one hundred forty-sevenOratory at Eau Claire In glancing over the names of those who have made in former years, oratorical history at Eau Claire Stale Teachers' College, one finds they arc pursuing a variety of occupations
In 1921 Arthur Thorson won first place in the college oratorical contest and represented the school in the state contest at Plattcvillc. where he won this contest. He has made use of his oratorical training and is now practicing law'
Alden Losbv represented the school at the 1922 state contest held at Stevens Point. At the present time. Mr. Losbv is an Eau Claire attorney.
Leonard I'horson represented the school in 1923 and 1924 He won fourth place in the state contest at Milwaukee. in 1923. He also competed in the state contest at Whitewater, in 1924 Mr I'horson taught school and coached oratory and debate for a number of years, but is now a Certified Public Accountant.
William Gavin represented the school at the state contest at Superior, in 1925. and the state contest at River Falls, in 192b. Mr. Gavin is now in Hollywood singing for sound productions and over the radio Oratory and singing seem quite far apart, but Mr. Gavin seems to be a success at both
Harold Thorson represented the school at the 1927 state contest at Eau Claire.
Archie Wolcott represented the school in the 1928 state contest at LaCrosse.
Orville Deuel represented the school at the 1930 state contest at Plattcvillc Mr Deuel is now teaching at Augusta.
Clarence Gorsegner represented the school at the 1931 contest at Stevens Point He is now teaching adult classes.
George Dickson represented the school in the 1932 state contest at Milwaukee, and the 1933 state contest at Whitewater. He also represented the school in the peace oratorical contest, at Madison in 1934 At the present time Mr. Dickson is doing graduate work at the University of Wisconsin
Chivalry made me what I am today I hope it's satisfied The time was when I would willingly rush to the assistance of any member of the "unfair sex". Even certain early disillusionments seemed to have no effect
upon my desires to possess the soul of Launcclot. the heart of Ivanhoe.
Now. all that I have cast behind me Never again shall I surrender my bus scat to the first buxom woman with flat feet who treads on my toes Never more shall I return to its feminine owner the minute bit of lace edged cambric she has dropped. For the last time I have restrained the ungentlemanly impulse to administer chastisement that so many ungenerous women richly deserve.
I recall, with misgivings, a noble deed I once took upon myself to perform A certain young lady I knew was having difficulty in fulfilling the arithmetic assignment. She approached me. and with that fatal, seductive look which always accompanies such requests, begged my assistance She got it in the form of the entire week's work to copy I shall always, and with rancor, remember the reckoning. It seems the teacher had observed the similarity of the two papers, and. hence, we wxrc on the carpet To my great surprise, no hesitant confession came from the lips of my lady in need Instead I was roundly lectured, while the embryo Lucrezia Borgia bestowed upon me a triumphant smirk.
Did I profit by this bitter experience1 I did not. But that is all passed Never again shall I ah. but I shall. The age of chivalry is not past. Its real purpose has never ceased to be. nor will it. The masculine heart will always revel in some bit of gallantry. The recipient may not visibly appreciate it: women have learned to expect these courtesies, and rightly too.
Then. also, my conscience would implant in me the germ of remorse should I decide to ignore this age-old tradition. Nor would there be other companions, likewise determined to break from the old order, who would say to me. "That was a dandy left, serves her right, or "Slap her again. Show her she can t slam the door in your face.”
No. chivalry will not puss. As long as there are men who inherently revere and respect women, no matter how they try to conceal it. and as long as there arc women who know they arc worthy of these small courtesies. chivalry will flourish.
If I have been brought up to fulfill certain obligations to society by protecting women and dumb animals. I shall do so. even if the cat scratches my hand, or the dog nips my heels. B.L.

President Hutchins’ R an
President Hutchins’ plan for higher education is u start toward the improvement of the American educational system That our present system needs improvement is a well known fact It has been known for a long time. Kit up until now very few concrete suggestions have been offered. President Hutchins now offers a plan fully developed with four distirct phases.
First. the elementary school would be shortened to s.x years This would leave two extra years for preparatory work. I'urthcrmorc. it has Ken proved that six years is sufficient to complete the elementary work. This would also do away w ith the overlapping of eighth grade work in the high school
The second step would be a preparatory school of three or four years This school would rot end u student's education It would merely help him to decide what work he wished to take in college. It would cover the seventh and eighth grades and the first two years of high school. As the work given in these four years is very closely connected, it is plausible that they should be grouped together.
The third step in this plan would K terminal for many students. Inis school would have various departments devoted to technical training or general education, depending entirely upon a student's tastes. Undoubtedly this would be an advantage, because it would enable students to chose the line of work they wish to follow and train them to take an active place in the outside world They would not K forced into studies that did not interest them They would not K hampered in following out the trade or profession of their choice. At the conclusion of this school, many would K fitted to earn their own living in various ways. This group would

The lust school. tK university, would Knefit a great deal from this plan. By tK time tK students have reached this stage, they'will K weeded out, and only those with scholarly or professional interests would continue into the university. Thus, w'ould tK university K able to carry out tK function for which it was originated- tK furtherance of cultural education.
Taking tK plan as a whole, it is quite constructive. If it were given a proper chance to K worked out. tKrc is no reason why it couldn't satisfy everyone. This plan would not hinder our democratic notion of education for everyone. On tK contrary. tK majority of people would have an education that was not superficial; tKy would K trained to do useful work of their own chrxsing Then tK universities would no longer K cluttered with people who are there for every reason but an education. IK students who entered a university would K chosen for tKir ability as scholars. This plan would cost no more than our present system docs, and would probably get Kttcr results for everyone concerned.

A Day in the City
Have you ever been lost in a large city? l'Xwsn't it give you the most terrifying feeling’ I don't think I shall ever forget the first time I took a street car when I was alone.
The day before a friend had gone with me and pointed out buildings I could use for land marks. It all seemed very simple, or so 1 thought. The next morning I went alone, but I didn't enjoy watching people or looking at buildings as I Tad the morning before. I couldn't sit back and relax; I kept watching for my landmarks. I kept thinking I had passed them because i: seemed to take so long. It was with a sigh of relief that I saw the bi t yellow garage that marked my transfer station. I reached school in good time, although I was rather nervous.
(doming home was a nightmare A theatre marked my transfer station when I was on my way home. I forgot the name of the theatre, and there were two or three of them on each block Strange to say. they all seemed to look alike. I decided to get off at tfie first one that looked most like the right one. It didn't happen to be the right one. so I started to walk. I didn't think I had passed it. yet I wasn't at all sure: but I decided that it was more likely I hadn't come to it yet. I walked a few blocks, and then I saw the place where I should transfer.
The rest of the trip was uneventful It wus with a thankful heart that I finally reached home M S.

"May I have a drink before we go in the gymnasium?"
"Certainly." replied the principal.
"How do these lights turn on?" asked Mr. Spcckner rather embarrassed.
" I guess the students took the switch handles off. but then they are learning mechanics. Ibis is where the friendly rivalry between schools takes place."
" 'hat do you use these boards along the side for?"
"Oh. those boards. Those arc the bleachers, but the students had a little fun at the last game, and some of them arc broken
On the way from the gymnasium to the French room. Mr. Spcckner smiled and said. " I suppose the students tear up this paper to provide employment for the janitors Another unemployment project?"
"This won't be very interesting," he continued, "they arc having aquizz It is one of the policies of the

"I'd like to show you the library. It's a lovely

Threshing at a Wheat Ranch
My long awaited opportunity had come A friend of the family that owned a lurge wheat ranch invited me to come out to the ranch during threshing time To see a threshing crew and to watch it in operation was to me what a circus is to most boys. Threshing time to the wheat ranch was what the husking bees” were to the old farms.
I jring the rest of the afternoon, we had the doubtful pleasure of a hot. dusty ride of about twenty miles Our vehicle was a spring wagon, drawn by a pair of half-broken horses, lire natural curiosity of an eight-year-old boy held me spell bound during that journey. My benefactor was kept busy answering my questions about everything that I saw. f inally, in the gathering dusk of the evening, he pointed out the ranch buildings An air of activity, caused by u number of men. several teams of horses and w agons, seemed to pervade the air Everyone was bustling about in preparation for the next day.
At three o'clock next morning, the noise of various activities awakened me. it wasn't light yet. but everyone seemed to be stirring. I dressed and hurried out to find my friend Me was directing the crew as to what they were to do for the day and seeing that everything was all right Apparently he was pleasantly surprised at my early appearance, and he decided to take me along with him
After breakfast, we went over to the threshing machine. It was about u mile from the house and in the center of a large wheat field ITc men had the steam up alrcadv. and several wagons could be seen that were being loaded with bundles of wheat Other wagons with high boxes were standing around to receive the threshed w'hcat.
Soon the first load came into the threshing machine With boisterous yells and some impromptu ceremony, the fir. t bundle was thrown into the thresher Soon the stream of loaded wagons that were coming in seemed as though it were endless. They were coming from all directions and from about as far as one could see in that rolling country. Another stream of wagons formed to haul away the threshed grain Some was to be hauled to the elevators at the railroad, and the rest was to be stored at the ranch.
At noon the men ate in shifts Part of the group would go to the house and cat and the rest would work.
The work continued until late that night, as long as as it was light, and was resumed at daylight again the next morning. That day I went out on one of the wagons that was hauling bundles. ITic men officially declared me their driver, and w ith an eight year old man s pride I spent the whole day out in the hot sun driving
out into the field to pick up the scattered bundles and bring them back to the thresher. Ihe first time I tried to drive too close to the tractor and nearly had a runaway team to drive, but I was assisted by the men und saved from disgrace When I quit driving. I ached from one end to the other; and I was so tired that I wanted to go to sleep without any supper.
The third day. ' finishing up day." dawned bright and clear without any assistance from me To my humiliation I wus permitted to sleep lute that morning After awakening. I hurriedly breakfusted and went over to the granary. At the granary u small army of men was kept busy unloading the wheat from the wagons. I was installed as door tender and spent several hours holding a door open that could have neen easily blocked My position proved advantageous in that I could watch everything going on inside and out of the granary. Ihe wheat was placed in huge bins where it was held for use during the year and for seed. Ihe hist load of wheat came in about dark, and all the talk was about the dance to be held at the school-house that night
Ihe dance made a fitting end to the threshing season. All the people from all the ranches for several miles around came to the school in wagons, in old Fords, on horseback The orchestra was composed of four pieces, two violins, an accordion, and u banjo. 'ITic dancing varied from old country polkas to the new fox trot, the dancers varied from grandfathers to their grandchildren About midnight, a lunch, which had been brought by all the housewives, was served After eating. I went out to the wagon and fell asleep and didn't wake up until the dance was over and the sun was shining.
Tired but happy people were all around, getting rcadv to go home and do the chores before getting a little sleep. It would seem so good to crawl into bed and stay there all day'

Seeker of Romance
In Richard Haliburton one meets a different type of culture. To me Huliburton seems like a dreamer- a dreamer who wanders from plucc to place because of his love of wandering and because he wishes to fulfill boyish ambitions by seeing these places. From country to country, from city to city, and from beauty spot to beauty spot Haliburton wanders, and bark ol his talcs one can see the love for these things sec that he writes to make others see these things the way he does.
In ' New Worlds to Conquer we travel with him through South and Central America We picture (x r-tez with his band of followers fighting for Aztec gold; and. above all. we arc impressed with a picture of Pizar-ro. Pizarro-thc poor peasant and swineherd.

He doesn't take ls to the usual sightseeing places over the regular routes. He takes us to unknown places; he maps his own routes.
All through the book we arc conscious of a beautiful breezy style that sweeps us up mountains, across oceans.

To me. books have always been kindly counselors. Just the other day. while reading (or re-reading. I should say) a novel by Peter B Kync for sheer pleasure.

"Teas of the D'Urbervilles" is an old. old story— the story of man acquitted. and a woman found malty. Because of its brutal reality, it continues to perplex the reader long after the last page is read. C)nc asks himself over and over again. Why did it have to end that way? " But could it have had a more happy termination’ I believe not. There was no avenue of escape for less. Fate had begun weaving a web of circumstunccs over and around her long before she made her appearance on earth Throughout the story, the web is slowly but steadily drawn tighter until at last less succumbs to the inevitable
But why docs one weep over the fate of Tess? Is she any more deserving of our sympathy than the hundred and one other tragic heroines of (letion? I lerc is the actual tragedy I lardy makes his characters live and breathe and walk among us We suffer with her. forgive her, and hate for her When she dies it is too much! Fate has scored a victory!
Perhaps Hardy's most outstanding characteristic is his honesty. He is utterly incapable of weaving sunny illusions or improbable possibilities It is the consistency of his characters, the plausibility of his plots, and his seemingly sombre outlook on life that constitute the cruelty and fascination of his novels.
'The consistency of character is best illustrated by the ease of Alee I) I rberville Somehow-, one cannot conceive of his being a zealous preacher. In fact, one is almost relieved when he returns as far as possible to his natural self. Likewise. Angel Clare lives his part. In all probability, life would not have run smoothly for l ess and Angel had they been reunited sooner I Xr’cp in his heart, Angel would always have carried the scar of the revelation which Tess made to him on their wedding day. It was impossible for him to forgive completely. So true to life arc tlx- parents of Tess that they excite in us not only both pity and disgust but a sense of acquaintance
In “Tess of D'Urbervilles." Hardy docs not attain the finished excellence of style that is evidence in “The Return of the Native ‘ Also, in the latter production, the grimness of reality is softened considerably by the character of Tbomasin and her lover Although the fut-al note is prevalent in both of these novels, each has its own local color

It was after that last game, however, that the boys started waving their true colors, and the dissension began Summers, the lanky center on the "A" squad, had laughingly tossed across the lockers a few scathing remarks relative to the ignoble defeat. “Matty '' Sheridan, our "B“ forward, wheat dripping towel evidently found its mark in the near vicinity of Summers' two goid teeth, retorted in like manner.
Banter like thus, kept the locker room in considerable uproar until Michels left. Michels is our other for ward I had him sized up as a fairly likeable chap, and his remark surprised me. As he reached the dtxir. he used and directed a particularly disgusting epithet at mmers.
If this w-crc a melodrama, the coach would hav-c taken Michels under his w ing and pointed out the error of his wavs, and then the "B" team, spurred by the glorious spirit of sportsmanship, would have rallied and finally walked off with the district trophy. The truth is that the "B" squad will continue to lose, and the tension will continue to tighten.
After ull. what constitutes sportsmanship’ Isn't it simply playing the game squarely and accepting graciously defeat and victory alike’ The satisfaction that comes from a clean contest will many times offset defeat.

Although it may seem absurd, the thing that interests me most at circuses is the clown. While visiting a small circus I watched one clown in particular. He was small in stature, wiry, extremely quick, and seemed utterly carefree I l s makeup consisted chiefly of huge dabs of bright paint on a background of dead white over his face and neck, which exaggerated his rather prominent features. The suit he wore was a big balloon-like affair of no special form, covered with a variety of shriekingly gaudy colors in circles, dots, and stripes Throughout the performance he was the life of the snow with his "wisecracks foolish actions that arc the day's work of every clown. I wondered at the time if he was always as happy as he seemed then.
After the first performance I strolled outside of the big tent and entered a small enclosure in which were small tents, wash stands, and open air dressing tables I gazed about curiously, wondering how I would like that sort of carefree life, when I heard a strained, cracked, almost sobbing voice inouirc of a big musculur artist. "Did you get the mail? Was there any there for me?"
I turned about quickly at the first words and saw the man's face It was pinched, wrinkled, and careworn, the face of a man who was suffering untold agony. His face was so fascinating to me in its terrible, hopeless. heartbroken state that for a few seconds I didn t notice the highly colored suit he wore or know him to be mv happy-go-lucky clown.

II she were asked, Mrs. Perry, the deacon's wife, would tell you that it is the best looking church in town Probably she would be right It needs another coat of paint, but probably hasn't needed it any longer than the five other churches. Unless the minister is too busy with funerals, the grass is cut in the summer and the walk shoveled in winter. Though the steps squeaked until last October, there was a carpenters "bee to repair them. The church displays a most elevating feature the sign board out in front, with the words " The hirst Presbyterian Church of Redwood” painted on it. Under this are the pastors' names. That is, our first minister's name has been covered over with white paint to make room for the second name; but the first was the longer of the two. so it is partially visible at its extremities. The present minister came after the depression, so that his name has never been added to the accumulation of letters
But even Redwood realizes that the appearance of a church doesn't mean everything. Before a church can be really successful, its congregation must include the best people in town It seemed this morning that the entire congregation of the l irst Presbyterian Church was doing its best to prove the quality of its membership Already the Sunday school superintendent, who was also the postman, school treasurer, hardware man. and the church treasurer was present, doing his best to welcome the others as they arrived. And he was being quite democratic. for everyone realized that it was good business policy to give the banker, mill superintendent, and school principal the most enchanting smiles und the best scats.
But still the best seat — the one about half-way down near the aisle, that didn't squeak, was vacant liccausc I hadn't been in town long I wondered who was to have
the honor of occupying it. It remained vacant -even after Dr. I lilt, the richest man in town, who almost never comes to church, arrived. The prelude had started and the teachers in the back row had begun to smile a little less often before the intended occupant of the scat appeared. or was heard, rather. Mildred, daughter of the next to the richest man in town, back for her first vacation from college, was coming to church Now she was telling the usher that she preferred to leave her coat on A moment later she whispered to her brother, sotto voce, which carried to the most remote comer of the church. "They keep it so cold in here!" Quite a plausible explanation but we understood her motives even more fully when she came in view, and we saw she wore a new fur coat. As she walked to her scut, she kept her head tilted just far enough so she could sec those she was supposed to see. and didn't have to make an effort not to see the rest. I didn t mind being among those not seen. I had bid my turn last year, and I knew she was as worried about what Mr. Harm, the poorest farmer, would think of her coat and her college air as she was about what Dr. Hill would think. In fact, it was for the sake of Mr I larm and others like him that she wore rose nail polish rather than coral I knew too that she realized that the banker’s wife had u fur coat worth twice as much as hers, and was wondering if anybody else knew it. No, I didn’t mind being among those not seen. Por after church. Mildred would favor me with a cool, quick handclasp and a look from which I should understand. "Really, were we that small townish’ Provincialism in its worst sense!" And I was to give her a look which was to mean, "Your mother isn't. They won't seem so bad a year from now. ” E. Alcott
They brought me a wreath tied with a rose colored ribbon. which flapped in the breeze.
ITcy knelt on the soft green earth and placed it just so beneath the silver maple that swayed o'er my tombstone.
They stood as in awe in this little corner of the great cemetery.
One made a speech about death as the final test of life and of scouthcxxl.
A lad stood up straight, his head high, playing "l aps'' on a brass bugle.
Filling the warm air with lingering melody.
They went away.
Leaving me alone with the wreath.
And the silver maple swaying in the breeze.
one hundred thfrlyDewdrops
Treading lightly the endless expanse Of her glorious kingdom.
Night hurries on.
Day in pursuit.
Swiftly she trips from cloud to cloud A Hash,
A gleam on the dew-drenched road.
A wee diamond falls:
But Night in her flight Murries on.
Laughing in triumph.
Day snatches the jewel And tosses it back—
Another bright dewdrop.
Elizabeth, and Nothing iVlore
I am a creature without hope No longer shall my days be filled with eager expectancy. The drab routine of my life will not again be livened by the joy of waiting for the fulfillment of a long felt wish. For I shall continue to be introduced as " Elizabeth ”, and nothing more
Until yesterday. I hoped that this should not be so Before then, I awaited with ever renewed hope for an introduction of the formal type—an introduction in which both my name and the name of the person whom I was meeting should be mentioned. And until yesterday. I naively thought that sometime 1 should be introduced in the orthodox way.
I presume that when I was born my mother told her friends that I was 'Elizabeth", That was sufficient It was scarcely necessary1 to tell them my last name, or to explain who I was. And it most certainly was not necessary' to tell me the names of the friends So mother formed the habit of merely murmuring Elizabeth' , and then feeling that I was properly introduced.
I didn't mind this at first. 1 didn't really know that the appclation "Elizabeth' would not always be sufficient identification. For years. 1 eared little about the names of people I met. It was not until I went to mother's home town that I realized the inadequacy of my customary introduction. For I continued to be introduced as "and this is Elizabeth.
Usually when the person I was meeting heard this, she would brighten and purr. "Oh. yes, Elsie's daughter.
I knew your mother well Tell her hello for me.
And what was I to do1 No one was ever kind enough to tell me the name of the woman whose message 1 was to carry home. And what was my unswer to
be when mother's friend said confidently, 'You have probably heard your mother speak of me'" Probably I had. But how was I to know that the person had been the Eleanor, or the Lillian, or the Margaret who figured so prominently in the stories of mother's youth’ Once I did gaily say "Oh. yes. She mentions you often!" Then in the course of the conversation I revealed the fact that I didn't know to whom I was talking. Embarrassing to say the least!
Well, as I have said, the crisis came yesterday. 1 met another school-mate of mother’s. I really did know much about her. I knew and I am not exaggerating in in the least—her first name, her maiden name, her first husband's name, the first name of her second husband, and the maiden name of her mother." But as for her present title! The family used any of the above mentioned names that occurcd to them because everyone knew who was meant.
As I was saying, the time for the introduction approached I waited with bated breath, for I felt it was my last chance. ’I hc other greetings were made and then—
"And this is Elizabeth.“
"Oh. yes, Elsie's daughter. You've probably—’ "Yes. I have." I answered politely; hut I felt like screaming the questions. 'What is your name? Who are you?" But I didn't; I remained quiet, with thanksgiving in my heart. I was thanking the Creator of all good things for the fact that mother hadn t told her friends after my birth that "this is the baby." For how terrible it would be to be introduced all one's life as "this is the baby. ’ E.A.
one hundred thirty-oneA Match and a Man
How like a match a man is' There is the match that flares brightly and wonderfully for a moment, then is seen no more. I low like the daredevil, the so called hero, who risks his life and the lives of others to accomplish some foolish, worthless end His name is Hashed across the headlines of the newspapers and is on the lips of a nation 'I'hcn another arises, and the first is heard of no more
And there is the match that bums slowly but steadily. It has no umazing possibilities and often one is hardly aware that it exists. Yet if one needed a lasting, steady light, that match would be the one he would chose l low like the friend, tried and true, who stands by you through joys and sorrows. Often you hardly realize that he is there, yet it is that friend you turn to in need - the one you remember when others arc forgotten
The match that burns brightly and beautifully only to start some terrible conflagration that causes sorrow and destruction is like the criminal the man who has ability Kit who chose; to use his ability against mankind. On the other Kind, there is the match that docs
the useful tasks cf life. Those who have started the really worthwhile and beautiful things in the world find themselves symbolized by that match
There arc matches that arc never able to do what is planned for them, because they urc extinguished too soon. They boys and girls who die too young in life to realize their ambitions arc like these matches.
There arc matches that never have a chance to flame. No one uses them There arc men and women in the world like that men and women who wait all their lives to do something worthwhile, but who never find a circumstance in which they may be of use.
But the match that docs the simple little everyday tasks of life represents the most important persons. 'There are persons who work all their lives doing the lesser tasks, but who never find time to work for their own glory
Yes. the match is like a man. though one is animate and the other inanimate, though one seems to have no possibilities and the other limitless possibilities
The Modesty Pose
A unique situation, unulagous to the “mucker pose, is the state of our national modesty. It i not that this deplorable condition could result in the decline and fall of our “land of the free and the home of the brave, but it docs affect our chances of success.
The American people, by unwritten law. have sanctioned modesty. Those who indulge in dropping casual remarks relative to their accomplishments find themselves outcasts barred from society, wallflowers. No. they do not have halitosis; it is much more serious they arc conceited!
It is a pity we must conform to so foolish a tradition to keep in the good graces of society. The situation is beginning to take on the aspect of the venerable Oiincse who says. " This miserable misfit is honored beyond words when your most sacred being condescends to visit his disgraceful doorstep “ Why must we degrade ourselves in the eyes of others in order to appear “so unassuming and modest"?
A Frenchman visiting in the United States explained clearly this point when he said. “Take, for example, the American author When 1 praise his work, he digs his toe in the ground, and squirms, and says. ‘It is nothing But in my country,ha.the author says. ’Most certainly it is good; it is my work. Am I not a great author1'
I lowcver, we have the conceited class with us. I
think if we divide this class into two sections, the reason for all the modesty may be more clearly seen First, there is a small group that really has something to be conceited about. Each has accomplished so met hing. but this group is small. Then, there is that group which holds the sole reason to be called conceited, they have done nothing not necessary, and like to brag about it. They magnify insignificant nothings into awe-inspiring heroics. Possibly those people who like to talk constantly about their operations belong in this class Poor souls, they are always so eager to tell how well everything came out.
Here. then, is where society has slipped up in its classification. Due to the fact that we have so many in the latter group, those persons whose deeds do merit publicity find themselves in a position where they must forever hold their place, or be classed among the empty-heads. 'This reticence, in turn, causes many people to conceal any ability they may possess.
Every person should know the extent of his abilities, if any. and his accomplishments. They arc assets to be proud of. not something to be ashamed of and to apologize for; yet, until more brave men and women disregard what the dear people think, we shall dig our toes into the ground and squirm—or be conceited
one hundred thirty-twoTolerance
A philosopher once suid that the greatness of man could be measured in terms of his tolerance. Undoubtedly. from his further discussion, his contention was that tolerance is characteristic of true greatness; and that pseudo-greatness may be detected by lack of tolerance.
C'-an we find another meaning in this proverb’ Can we reverse its application’ Can we say that tolerance produces greatness as well as that greatness produces tolerance?
Let us take a trip through the eastern part of the United States. Among other places, we shall visit a coastal fishing town in Massachusetts, where the traditional moral attitude of New England still prevails In this tiny village the citizens have crippled their souls with bigotry and intolerance. We could certainly find no greatness here.
( 1 our way home we shall stop at the famous Greenwich Village, where tolerance is a by-word. ‘l ic villagers profess to welcome any doctrine or standard, but still we have not found greatness. Obviously there is an error in our theory.
Perhaps moderation is the secret of tolerance: perhaps we must choose between what we can or cannot accept. But. do we not do that’ The average thinking person is reasonably broad-minded; however, there arc certain flagrant breaches of decency he condemns We urc. most of us. thinking individuals- yet we arc not great.
Finally, we may conclude that the logical thing to do would be to study the attitude of really great men toward tolerance And there we find the key to our problem Toward their fcllowmcn the immoriully famous were kindly and tolerant to a fault, lauding their good works and ignoring their mistakes. As to themselves, they were hard taskmasters, censuring the slightest flaw in work or character, and forgetting former triumphs in the onward march.
If we would, t lie re fore, be worthy of fame, let each of us include in his rule of life this. "Toward others, tolerance toward myself, severity." Thus truly may our greatness be measured in terms of our tolerance.
‘it Never Happened Before’
“ It never happened to a Brooke before", my father said in a voice choked with an emotion which he could scarcely restrain. Was it grief. Joy. or surprise’ That didn't matter to him now His efforts were concentrated on realizing just what had happened. These were two? Twins—a boy and a girl? A baby whimpered. Father waited for the second cry. F'or surely one would follow. llicre were twins in the family! While he wondered what their names would be. his wife wondered how the layette, ample enough for one, could be stretched to cover two.
But these worries became trivial as the years passed. The choosing of names seemed an easy task when compar cd to that of learning a new language And that is what we had to do. For the twins scorned the complications of English. 'l tcy created a language of their own. For three years they conversed in a speech which only they and mother really understood.
Eventually the twins grew up—somewhat. At least, they grew old enough to quarrel. One day mother overheard them in the midst of a fight. She had always told the twins that Andrew had brought Alice because
he wanted another sister. It made a pretty story until Andrew, seven by now. grew angry with Alice and informed her that he wished he hadn't brought her.
But not all quarrels ended that way. I remember one I watched from the window. It was a wrestling match. Part of the time Alice had Andrew down, and part of the time the situation was reversed; but most of the time both had each other down. 1 was on the point of interfering when Alice swung a mighty blow that knocked Andrew's hat off. It sailed away, imbedding itself in the snow Alice ran over, picked it up. and brushed the snow off. "Now she'll run with it. " I thought;“Andrewwillcatchcold." But she didn't. Even as she expressed her opinion of him and his muscular power, she tenderly replaced his cap. straightened it. then proccded to push him over.
Soon after that, the twins started going to school. In the course of enrollment, the teacher asked Andrew who was the elder, he or Alice. Andrew told her he was. Then she asked him how much, and he gravely answered " Twenty minutes." And he probably wondered why she laughed E. A.
one hundred thirty-threeReminiscences
As I entered the vestibule of St Charles’ Church on Easter Sunday morning. I became aware of the sccming-ly long years that had elapsed since I had last set foot upon the faded carpets in the old edifice In my childhood. I read I having been filled with awe at the immensity of the budding, but now the nearness of the four walls made my old impression almost laughable. Perhaps it was because I had grown up. in stature at least, and the church had stayed the same.
While walking down the aisle to my grandmother's pew. I saw rows of familiar faces I didn't know anybody but I was certain that the majority had sat in those same scats as far back as I could remember. They knew my mother. One of them nudged her neighbor, and I could almost hear her say, "Why. that must be Helen Schmidmcycr’s girl Yes Helen's the one who married Kay Pierce. Land. I wouldn't have recognized her If I hadn't seen her with her grandma yesterday. She's got so big. ”
Kneeling down beside my grandmother. I made a survey of all the old. familiar articles in the church. There was the little angel with just o touch of pink in his wings I had always wanted a baby sister who would look exactly like that. Only I shouldn't expect her to have wings. At least, not real ones. And the altar1 I used to gaze fixedly at the place way up almost at the top. where the little lamb was comfortably placed. I used to imagine myself up there with the lamb, looking down at all the people. My. that would have been fun! Even good Father Karl was still there. Once, long before, he hud put his Kind on my head and asked me if I didn’t think ice cream made little girls sick I fc didn't look one day elder now.
Grandma stopped praying long enough to hand me a prayer book—German prayer book I had my "Cath-
olic Girls’ Guide" with me. but somehow. I preferred looking helplessly through the pages of strange words. I had enjoyed looking through them long before I learned to raid That was when we lived on Eagle Prairie in a big red farmhouse. Had (we called him papa then) used to hitch Betty to the buggy on Sunday morning—and off we trotted to Chippewa. I had a white embroidered dress, and brother Kid to wear his shoes and stockings Papa put a plank in the front of the buggy for brother und me to sit on. and mama held l.orin on her lap. Lor-in was the baby. I thought it must be fun to be the baby. Eleven years later papa said to me. Well Sipper. (the boys called me thut before they could say sister) you're the baby now. "
We had dinner at grundma's after mass. Grandma always had a roast chicken on Sunday She raised Rhode Island Reds in u pen out by the woodshed Aunt Frances made chocolate aikc After dinner, she took our pictures, but I squinted and my cowlick stuck up straight. Aunt Frances cut our hair. too. She tied grandma's apron around our r ccks. one at a time, of course, and put us upon the sewing machine, which stotid on the back porch. She told us the story of Jack and the Beanstalk. When we had hud our nap (I Kited naps) papa took us to the park to hear the Kind play, und we got strawberry pop, und want home in time for papa to do the chores With a start. I realized that I had mused away the enure hour over a German prayer book Ihc benediction had been spoken, and Father Karl was saying the last prayers in Germun. I liked those German prayers. Grandma liked them, too I low old she seemed. kneeling there in the pew Well, seventy-seven is old She wouldn't attend many more masses.

The Mill of the Gods
The slayers of Brooke L. I fart hive paid the eternal debt for their atrocious crime, and another page in the book of American barbarism has been blotted and sealed.
Like the hill tribes of old. who descended from their mountain lairs upon the helpless shepherds, these self-appointed administrators of justice have, without regard to preservation of life, property, and order, taken the law unto themselves, and, in the manner of beasts, extinguished human life.
The disgrace and horror of this cngcance docs not lie in the fuct that the victims were innocent, for they were not Neither were the Negroes, which race, somehow, seems to bear, innocent or guilty, the largest proportion of fatalities incurred from mass ’ justice.” Even the brutal and vicious crime which they committed ranks as comparatively insignificant when held beside the must startling, the most unexpected denouement of the whole disgraceful affair, when the governor of the state, a man elected by the commonwealth on the strength of his integrity and unimpeachable sense of justice." issued this statement “This is the best lesson that California has ever given the country We show the country that the state is not going to tolerate kidnap-inR "
It it unbelievable that Governor Rolph would descend from the dignity and prestige of his office to condone such an exhibition of bestial ferocity.
With a battering ram. the leaders of the mob had forced their way through several iron-barred doors, beating and injuring guards, whose pleas for state assistance had been refused by the governor. Finally, replete with
victims and rope, the attacking force moved to the beautiful St James park, where, surrounded by a crowd of more than six thousand persons, they murdered the prisoners. Some of the crowd cheered, some jeered, but others turned away and buried their faces in their arms, shocked by the ghastly exhibition they had just witnessed Long will the memory of two struggling men. lifted ten feet from the ground, burn in their memories
And all this the ''just" government of California has sanctioned Should the participants be apprehended by the police, they have the assurance of Governor Rolph that a pardon awaits them for avenging a murder by committing two more.
It has taken man many thousands of years to build up a veneer of civilization, yet. yesterday, man again reverted to an ancient lust to kill .and the work of our great urbiters of justice crumbled.
Had court action started and had there been prolonged delay of the law there might have been some justification in the killing, hut so short a time had elapsed no action had even begun. Justice has not been so prolonged in eases like these, yet California, through her governor, has virtually declared that her processes of justice arc in so bad repute that the fury of an incensed mob must displace courts and due process of law. The "lesson" which Governor Rolph claims to have taught the nation is certainly not one to be proud of. and if the state of California wishes to uphold her dignity and honor in thcfaccof a shocked nation, she will, regardless of Governor Rolph's promises of immunity, speedily apprehend the mob leaders.

On the bustling world outside of the four gate posts that mark its kingdom.
There is a dusty hall, and a dusty attic;
There are vom carpets and cobwebs;
There arc long-silent footfalls, and laughter lurking in dark comers.
A woman sits in the old house, wistful, silent, alone; Seeing w'ith indifference the life around her;
1-ooking at on album, a postcard, and a bit of lace; Listening for voices long since silent.

one iiumircil thirty •sevenFour Objects
Scntcd at my writing tabic I find myself gazing absently about the room in which I apparently am destined to spend a large part of my time for a few years. Outside. the sky is filled with swirling cascades of powdery snow. Inside, a desolate, formidable spirit seems to pervade the place With varying emotions I make a silent inventory of important objects contained within my four walls. My mind's eye chooses four distinct things: the light, an alarm clock, a rag doll, and a framed prayer. Each of these objects is symbolic of something in the advancement of mankind.
Ihc light is an emblem of Purity. Man goes along in the path of life, taking part in the pathos and comedy of attempting to do much more than merely existing Near at hand is his tremendous shadow cast by the light disclosing the awful fact that along with his actions arc deeds that tend to make him unworthy before his Maker.
l hc alarm clock is Time. Man. filled with multi-
tudinous thoughts, rushes on through this brief interim on earth, feeling variously on matters with which he is concerned. He realizes that Time is fleeting, but he directs his actions so he may gain more temporal acquisitions. having little thought of the day when he will be called upon to account for his actions on earth
The rag doll symbolizes Pleasures and frivolities, which too often shame man In the process of gaining un education or making a living, these arc often responsible for the disappointments experienced by many.
'I tc Prayer is that which brings the other three factors in close relationship with one another. Time is completely obliterated by Prayer; the Now and the I Icrc-aftcr arc merged into one. leaving no room for the doubts and uncertainties that are usually connected with Time Light brings to man a clear undcfilcd soul—Pleasures and frivolities become just pleasures
Financial Crisis and Education
American educational institutions ore facing a great crisis, out of which will possibly come great changes. When thousands of people ore in actual want, the spending of many millions annuully on education is not going to be uncontested. This enormous expenditure has brought many eyes to focus on the schools. Is the expenditure justified? Arc the results worth it ? The time has come when the whole educational system is to be judged by the finished product.
America has one of the most ambitious educational programs ever attempted. We arc a democratic nation, and popular education is said to be a safeguard of democracy Thus, the entire population is supposed to be enlightened by a system of schools. Every normal child may have an education. It is a generous plan.
In trying to educate everyone, do we really educate anyone? Does everyone have a legitimate right to un education1 In the last few years, as unemployment increased so also did the enrollment at colleges and universities. Many youths without work Gome to school in order to pass the time. Many have no desire for a cultural education and would much rather be working. There arc also a large number of well-to-do persons there for the social life offered them, and for the furtherance of the family traditions. I'hcn there is another class there, to get a degree merely for the sake of halving a degree And degrees are given too easily to those who have done nothing to merit the honor This class gets nothing from
studies They are not there for that purpose Many will get teaching positions, and others will enter the business world, but both will be unqualified for any trained work.
The true scholar suffers the most from the system of mass education. He is wedged in the already crowded class room. There is little opportunity for personal contact between an instructor and the individual student. The type of student, stimulated by a true love of learning. is forced to submit to the many rules and regulations necessary in a large institution. Emphasis is placed not on scholarship but on more spectacular interests such as football and social events. So it happens that even the real students are graduated without u true education.
The great flaws in the educational system were never more noticeable than they arc today. The country is in financial chaos; it needs leaders. Those now being graduated from colleges and universities arc not qualified for leadership. Their education is not sufficient , it has not put them in contact w'ith the great problems of the day. This lack of ability is very evident, and will cause many changes in the system. They will be drustic changes. Exactly what will be done is not known ; however. we can not help feeling that they will be for the better. And scholarship will be made the basis rather than other interests.

one hundred thirty-eightLuck
In the 1 lall of Science at the World’s F air, there was a machine that analyzed luck. It was a simple device about four by six feet, standing upright and covered with a sheet of glass At the top. a mechanism periodically released a number of steel bulls, each of which rolled into one of. perhaps, twenty compartments Although nothing guided the balls in their respective courses, there was practically no variation in the number that fell into each channel. This is the law- of averages.
Noted bridge players tell us that all other things being equal, each pair of partners will win about the same number of rubbers' if the playing is continued for a length of time. This. too. is the law of averages Dice, like shotguns, arc harmless things to play with providing they arc not “loaded We find that the spots on a pair of dice will turn up in about the same way when thrown u sufficient number of times.
However, 1 do think luck exists, more so for some
than for others. There is an intangible something that will give one man a "break " and ignore another. I recall two brothers I once knew, who were as evenly matched as one could wish Both were honor graduates from a lurge western college. Today, one is the general manager of a large sugar plantation in Cuba, and the oilier. I believe, is tuking a post graduate course for want of employment Most people who know these boys relate these facts as a clear proof of luck. Maybe it was personality It is difficult to say.
Most of us have to make our own chances, and we like to attribute the resulting success to luck. T iis lady" is elusive indeed, and a smile from her during this economic earthquake is a prize worth boasting of.
At any rate, science and psychology will have quite a controversy on their hands before they will he able to dispel the illusion that u rabbit’s foot in the vest pocket is fur luckier thun when attached to the animal.
The Blue Bird
I laving read The Blue Bird as a child and considered it a very beautiful fairy tale. I was surprised at the different impression I have received ut this later reading. Heretofore, I had placed no significance on the various adventures of the children in their hunt for the bluebird. I gave no thought concerning their inability to find real happiness here on earth. Now the meaning of these adventures is clear to me.
Two things struck me. in a recent reading as being especially beautiful about the Blue Bird: ITtc beautiful descriptions of the scene, and the dialogue, which, by virtue of its simplicity, is indeed tlx: most natural I had ever read.
The play opens in a peasant’s cottage, at night Thcchildrcn. Tyltyl and MytyI. supposed by their parents to be in bed. wutch a party ut u nearby home of the wealthy. As they watch, an ugly old woman, w'ho proclaims herself to be a fairy, appears The children find it difficult to picture her as u golden-haired sprite until she gives them a magic cap. Upon turning its diamond. they see things as they really arc.
The old woman is. in truth, a fairy, and human attributes arc given to every inanimate thing. The cat, the dog. bread, sugar, water, fire all have the characteristics of people. The fairy tells the children they arc
to hunt for the blue bird, symbolic of happiness, for her sick daughter Their quest takes them into the Land of Memory, where they meet their dead grandparents. From here they learn that the blue bird was kept in the Palace of the Night. I’hcy succeed, however, in finding only the terrors of man.
In the forest, next, n conspiracy is formed by the animals to rid the world of the children Through the treachery of the cat. the attempt is nearly successful, but the gallant dog comes to the rescue.
Next, they go to the palace of Happiness, where they find thousands of blue birds, but these die when the children emerge from the palace.
Still hunting, the children go to the graveyard, and to the Kingdom of the Future, but still they arc unsuccessful in their search. Finally, disappointed, they return home.
Upon being awakened from this wonderful dream, the children tell of their experiences, whereupon a neighbor. looking strangely like the fairy, comes in and tells that her daughter is sick The children give the duughtcr their pet dove, which miracuously cures the girl.
The most beautiful passage in the play is I think, that in which Maeterlinck has his Tyltyl say as he stands before the open graves. "ITx:rc arc no dead. . .
And what arc these—
The Wonders all about me;
A caterpillar creeping slowly forth.
I lively in its homely steadiness And yet. tomorrow.
Darting here and there amid the flowers,
A beautiful and carefree butterfly. P C.

"O (iacsar, we who nre about to die Salute you!" was the gladiators' cry In the arena, standing face to face With death and with the Roman populace.

As the barometer foretells the storm While still the skies arc clear, the weather warm. So something in us. as old ugc draws near. Betrays the pressure of the atmosphere.
1'he nimble mercury, ere we are aware.
Descends the elastic ladder of the air.
1'he telltale blood in artery and vein Sinks from its higher levels in the brain; Whatever poet, orator or sage May say of it. old age is still old age It is the waning, not the crescent moon;
1'he dusk of evening, not the blaze of noon.
It is not strength, but weakness, not desire.
But its surcease; not the fierce heat of fire,
'1'he burning and consuming element,
But that of ashes and of embers spent.
In which some living sparks we still discern. Enough to warm, but not enough to burn.
What then? Shall we sit idly down and say The night hath come; it is no longer day?
The night hath not yet come, we arc not quite C.Ait off from labor by the failing light. Something remains for us to do or dare;
Even the oldest tree some fruit may bear;
Not Oedipus Colonus. or Greek Ode.
Or tales of pilgrims that one morning rode Out of the gateway of the Tabard Inn,
But other something, would we but begin;
f or age is opportunity no less
l uin youth itself, though in another dress.
And as the evening twilight fades away The sky is filled with stars, invisible by day.ADVERTISINGIndex to Advertisers

In the winter, bare-armed branches Shiver as they sway on high.
And the wind, with mournful howling. Whistles us it passes by.
Then the spring-time with its softness. Steals across the woodlands bare. Touches everything it passes.
Leaves it blooming fresh and fuir.
Summer passes into autumn.
Leaves show color, softly fall.
And the winter's flakey whiteness Soon comes down to cover all
Ihcn is left the burc-armed branches. Beaching upward to the sky.
And the wind, with moumlul howling. Whistles as it passes by
Oh. Beautiful One.
You have charm,
But not the charm of One I know —
You have perfection.
But not t he perfect ion of One I know—
You arc sublime But not as sublime as One I know.
Oh. Beautiful One.
Waste not your charms on me They fall on barren soil.
And arc passed unnoticed.

Mr. Fox (after calling on Louis I3crg. and receiving no response)—I thought you had your hand up.
Berg—I did; it was holding up my head.
To him whose heart is racked w:th grief and pain.
To him who cares not if he ever breathes again,
To him who docs not find a peace or solace in mankind. Let me chant my prayer:
Go out among towering trees Where grass is green.
Where leaves nestle robins And all nature sings.
Dream in the shade of a linden tree.
Build castles of clouds.
Let your spirit be free
Speak with your God; live simply again;
Rebuild hope and faith Once more in men.
Negative Quantities I fear that I can never be As useless as some girls I sec;
A girl who goes in satins dressed,
Who always is un honored guest.
A girl who grooms herself all day.
And never "cracks a book" they say;
A girl who may without a care.
Wear diamond star-clips in her hair.
It w'ould be wonderful to be As carefree and as gay os she;
Parodies arc made by fools like me;
Only such girls can make whoopee!
To w-eep. or not to weep, that is the question: Whether 'tis better for the mind to suiter The pain and torture of unshed tears.
Or shun the eyes of a cruel world.
And let tears freely flow. Weep, weep Some more, for by a tear they say we mend The heartache and the other natural shocks 'That we arc heir to. It is something Much to be desired. And then we weep And weep, and then we think—ay, there's the rub. For after that, what foolish thoughts may come 'To ridicule us, shame us. and annoy.
But if we should give vent to all our w'oes And make them lighter, that’s the thing That makes life w'orth it's price.
'loo. when we can so easily make wrong right. Weep, my child, weep with all your might.

While wandering among the flowers In a garden old and rare.

As beauteous and as fresh as dawn With the beam of the sun's first ray.
I could not pluck it. for though mute it was— ’’Let me live." it seemed to say.
I passed on and left that rose In all its grace and beautv rare.
And all who pass cannot but find The Paradise they're seeking there.

How would you act. think, and speak if your brother were dying your millionaire brother whom you hadn’t seen for many years — if he had his will made out to you? Madge (.able, the heroine of "Millions by Ernest Poole, had these and much more on her mind during the days she spent at the bedside of her brother I admit Ernest Poole's frank characterization of the girl it might have been any girl, at such n time. Mind you. the brother isn't dead yet. but, true to life. Poole has Madge planning how. when, and where she will use some of the millions. Poole evidently has known, intimately, people who have been socially ambitious, people who counted their chickens before they were hatched and then never even got the eggs, much less the chickens
Madge’s brother didn't die' He lived, and married an actress. He turned out to be quite poor. No happy ending, no sensational ending.
Life isn't so perfect that one can get millions just from the sky. or even from a dying brother. Can't you sec the position Madge was in when she must return to the little town of 1 lalcsburg. penniless a« before, still belonging to the country, although she has had a taste of city life-’ I lalcsburg might be any little town one knows Kali Creek. IXirnnd. or Slingcr. All little towns are alike. So arc all big towns. Each offers something to Madge. Each brings hopes and anticipation, also sorrow and disappointment. Madge surely found out when she examined her conscience, that money, or lack of money, make a big difference in both big and little towns
Poole’s story covers little time. There is hardly any action physically. What people think is usually an indication of what people arc. I'oo bad one ain't see all people's thoughts printed upon a page as in "Millions. "
Poole certainly mude his characters reveal themselves by their thoughts. It seems to me that Poole's real aim was to show the actions of people who have one
eye on money or prospective money and the other upon the possessors of that money.
Poole discovered Madge, but after he had made her do ordinary and extraordinary things, she turns out to be Just a girl -thinking, acting, and speaking as any girl would have under the circumstances a million dollars so near and yet so far.

After reading 'Main Street." it is not difficult to realize why Sincloir Lewis' treatment of smnll-town life aroused such adverse criticism from people whose small home town is dear to their hearts. Yet the book is u startling but accurate picturization of the lives of those men and women who live in “Gopher Prairies all over the United States
I believe that in order fully to appreciate “Main Street." one must live in a small town l"hc most amazing thing I encountered while reading the book was the fact that almost every character in the story could be adapted to fit some individual in the village where I live-Tne gossips, the woman's club, the commercial club, portray with surprising fidelity the conditions existing in small-town life
Ihc story is an account of a young woman who. while a librarian in Minneapolis, meets Dr Kcnnicott. a Gopher Prairie. Minnesota, doctor. They arc subsequently married after a courtship that could scarcely be called a whirlwind one. and the bride, cn route to the "picturcspuc village of her husband's childhood ' dreams of great deeds she can accomplish in the way of uplifting the village. This. her attempt to enlighten the seemingly wretched small-towncrs. and the resulting
failure, together with a detailed account of her every movement, comprise “Main Street ’
I do not like the book, hirst, our village Is a living "Ma n Street, and I am weary of petty struggles and bickering gorsips. The book can be no novelty to one who lives its story each day. Then I do not like Sinclair Lewis' style of writing, hie is considered a genius and his character delineation is unexcelled, yet "Main Street " is not a book 1 would enjoy reading again I enjoy his satirical pictures. I dislike his monotonous detail. I realize that I have not yet learned fully to appreciate the "gems of our literature" if they arc all like "Main Street." 'ITtc fact is a few more novels like this to wade through will thoroughly satiutc my desire to learn to enjoy good literature.
I would, however, recommend this book to city residents who wish to read a remarkably uccuratc account of the lives of their small-town brethren.

The Aim'eal of Adventure
On the morning of July lb. 1905, the steamship Roosevelt dropped her pilot outside New York harbor, and hove her stout beam into the northerly trades On board. Robert Edwin Peary found his dream of reaching the Pole beginning to materialize.
The next year, while the Roosevelt wintered in Greenland. Peary and his small party reached a point within 201 miles of the North Pole. February 22. 1009 saw the entire company under marching orders Wind that found little resistance in the heavy furs, the glare of vast fields of drifted snow, as well as treacherous hidden bodies of open water, brought discouragement to the band, yet Peary pushed on Finally, having stationed divisions of men and dogs along the route until accompanied only by 1 lanscn, his fuithful colored servant four Indians, and forty picked dogs. Peary reached the snow-covcrcd "rcof of the world September b. of that year, found the Peary Arctic Club with this message. ’ Stars and Stripes nailed to the North Pole!’
The scene changes to the tropical jungles of South America The exploration party of the National Geographical Society has reached its goal. Its members have traversed 4.000 miles up the Amazon, beating their way through steaming forest, and fighting disease-carrying insects. Swift rapids had to be portaged, meaning exhausting toil for each mile Yet. another victory in the name of adventure had been achieved.
The colorful talcs of exploration carry a strong appeal to almost every boy. A few will think seriously of it as an occupation and accordingly plan their lives. Somehow, the hardships, the discouragement and the failures arc forgotten in the eager anticipation of new adventure And. too. they arc forgotten with each new discovery, each difficult victory
The early training of these boys can be no fair indication of their ability. Many fuil miserably in school while others blunder through four years of mental torture when their heart is far on the other side of the world.
As a rule, these men who know just what to do when an ice-flow breaks up. what sails to trim in a hurricane, or where to blaze a jungle path, are a shy lot They hesitate to push themselves forward.
’IT»c other day. one of the men whose gallantry with Admiral Byrd distinguished him. was found in Central Park. New York, unable to secure work, forgotten by the people who once cheered him. Even his Congressional Medal of Honor had been panned the thin, star-sprinkled ribbon which rates an uncovered head from every superior off ccr. even the President of the United States

To find out just how much good sense. God did give to a goose.

Silver Spooners vs Grubbers
Prom a strictly academic standpoint, who Rets more out of a university course, the "Silver Spooner" or the "Grubbers?” On one extreme, we have the son of a wealthy family; hut does be learn the responsibility of earning and spending money’ On the other hand, there is the boy willing yes. anxious to receive the best education he can. even at the expense of hard physical or mental labor, self-sacrifice and little campus life; but with these responsibilities hairing upon him. will he derive the most from his four years in college?
The answer, of course, is a matter of personal opinion. and varies widely as character traits and dissimilarities of individuals arc analysed.
The "Silver Spooners. " as a rule, arc better prepared for college. They have had preparatory training and are familiar with campus life; able to enter immediately into the swirl of activities and studies, which to the "Grubbers”, represent only confusion and pangs of unhappiness Contact with over-bearing 'Silver Spooners” has no small part in creating inferiority complexes in the minds of these less fortunate. This, together with the question of curtailed activities and increased responsibilities. constitute the hurdle which each "Grubber” must top.
This hurdle is missing in the program of the "Silver
Spooner", and he "lives the life of Riley." As regularly as papa passes out five-dollar notes and fifty-cent Havanas. will the postman deposit an often pre-spent check. Therein, however, lies the hurdle that the "Silver Spooner " must clatr Ignorance is bliss, and he is happy. for the disconcerting thought has never occurred to him: will papa com inue so convicntly to provide a monthly check for the remainder of son’s life, or is there the remotest possibility that this extremely fertile source of revenue may cease’
lime alone can determine whether the "Silver Spooner" will clear this hurdle, or unwittingly slide by it. or whether the "Grubber" will manage to top his Only the strongest of each class will gain his end. Ihc "Grubber's" hurdle is physical and mental, but the "Silver Spooner's hurdle is moral: it is he who must work harder to succeed
To My Mother
Happiness comes from life not death;
We can note from whence it may come.
It comes from the smiles of people.
The laughter of children at play .
The ivy vine creeping along the wall Where the stones arc crumbled to decay.
It comes from the rustling of leaves.
From the wind making music in air;
It comes from the joy of Springtime rain. From the aura of a maid sweet and fair.
It comes with a beautiful sunset Painting the sky with colors of every hue. It comes with the beauty of mother love; It comes from my love for you.
You're Comin' Back
Nothin' much to say;
Got a lot to do.
Still I keep a-thinkin'
And a-longin jes fer you!
Cornin' back to see me?
Will it be fer ong?
Somehow days seem dreary And longer when you're gone
‘Taint a crazy longin'
That I feel fer you.
It's jes a-knowin' that You'll be comin soon.
Lovin' you a little.
Lovin' you u lot.
The kind of love we know'll last When our minds get "sot."

I often saw good old Uncle Em swaggering up the walk. I knew only too well that all his earthly possessions were crammed into that weatherbeaten satchel which hung lightly from his fingers. His one hundred ninety pounds made the porch steps quiver •• s he breezed in towards dad's favorite chair. After he bad comfortably arrunged his "number twelves" on the fumily's one and only footstool, be leisurely proceeded to appropriate and to smoke one of my dad's choice Havanas.
Cleverly juggling two quarters in bis left band, he would ask my younger brother to bring him a glass of water, then as my brother returned on the run with the water, he would calmly hand my brother two pennies which hud been deftly substituted for the quarters.
These actions proved without a doubt that he was still the same old fun loving I ncle Em who. despite his having served time in Waupun. despite his being a notoriously long visitor, he was first, last and always the favorite uncle of the family.
My Young Brother
My younger brother is n nuisance. Primarily he is too much like the Smith Brothers' whiskers he is always in the way. W hen I want to go somewhere, he wants to go with me. when 1 want to use the typewriter, so docs he. or when I wish to listen to the radio, he begins to practice on his clarinet .
11c is also always using something of mine. I lc dons my best tics, pulls on my newest socks, wears my most serviceable sweat shirts, grabs the silk handkerchici I
have been saving, and then shows his displeasure because my shoes arc too hig. It is not only my clothes he confiscates. In the summer my tennis racquet goes to the courts with him, and in the w inter my hockey club goes to the pond As if this were not enough, he always insists on borrowing my last nickel and forgetting where he obtained it.
I could stand this much better if he did not use the family sympathy as such an efficient weapon. I te knows how to use one's sympathy to his advantage, and he often places me in an unenviable position. If I push him out of the way. I am accused of having knocked him down and wulked over him. If I tell him to go home. I discover I have given him a kick to help him along I have not the space to relate how he rushes home to report my activities I lc knows just enough of what I do to tell the worst side of it
Awakening As the moon stoops over the blackness of night. Turning the worlds dark gloom to light.
So has spread over my life, a love
With sweet peace, like moonbeams from above.
As Spring comes to awaken the drabness on earth. After Winter has kept all in deep sleep.
So has awakened a love in my heart That lay dormant and cold and apart.
As robins in Spring know love by God's low. Obeying Natures call, sharing life with another.
So it is that our lives have become Companionship, shared one lor the other.WILLIAM SAMUELSON DRY GOODS CO.

Jimmy and Johnny Angleworm
Jimmy and Johnny Angleworm were small angleworms who did not have the benefit of the wisdom which age brings with it. One day. Jimmy Angleworm was playing by himself nrd Johnny came over to play with him. They were both playing in the soft earth when they heard noises.
"What's that’" asked Johnny in alarm “Aw. that's nothing at all. answered Jimmy
"But I hear voices. Maybe someone is going to dig us up."
"l n't be silly. Why should anyone want to dig us up when there are so many bigger, latter angleworms around?" To Jimmy the idea of anyone's wanting to dig him up was ridiculous.
"Well, I don't care what you say. I don't think you’re as smart as you think you are Those noises arc getting louder und louder, and I'm not staying here any longer. I'm going to crawl down deeper into the ground, and if you've got any brains in that head of yours you'll do the same thing; that is. unless you want to be strung on a hook und eaten by a fish.” With that as a parting shot. Johnny disappeared, but Jimmy stayed where he was.
"Ha." he laughed, "that Johnny is afraid of everything. I bet he even gets scared when he bumps into a rock or something " He was laughing so hard at the picture of how scared Johnny was that he was actually shaking. Because of this, his surprise und ularm were great when he found himself in a cun with u few other worms. He hadn't even felt the movement of the earth when the shovel hit it.
"Well! Well!" exclaimed one of the worms, "look who's here' If it isn't our friend Jimmy' This looks like old-home week How'd you get caught’"
That's what I d like to know. " grumbled Jimmy I didn't even know anything was happening until I found myself in this can with the rest of you. I guess I should have crawled down deeper like Johnny did. I'hat's what I get for laughing at him. Serves me right . "
" I bet Johnny got away. " remarked one of the others, "he's a smart one. he is."
Just then they heard the little boy who was digging the angleworms say. "My gosh, these angleworms ain't nowhere near enough to go fishin' w'ith Guess I II have to dig down deeper. " He pushed the shovel down us far as he could, and up came the shovel with Johnny in it. A few' seconds later. Johnny joined his comrades in the can.
"Well, hello there Johnny," shouted Jimmy. “How’s the kid?"
"What!" exclaimed Johnny in surprise. "You
here, too? I guess neither of us was so bright."
" I guess not. replied Jimmy sadly. " It looks like we re all going to be food for the fishes I only hope I get swallowed up all at once instead of in pieces It won t hurt so much then."
"Oh. don't talk like that. " shuddered poor Johnny.
"It makes me sick to think of it."
"Oh'" shouted one of the others, hysterically. "We're moving."
" It won't be long now. Better say your prayers. " advised Jimmy.
' I guess we've stopped now." mumbled Johnny
They had stopped, and the little boy looked down eagerly at his angleworms. He rubbed his hands in ecstasy as he thought of all the fish he was going to catch “ I guess I'll take this big fat one. " he said, and Jimmy und Johnny breathed a sigh of relief as they bade farewell to their former comrade. But their time was to come. The little boy came back in about two minutes, muttering to himself. "IJiat fat one didn't do so good The fish took a nibble ofTa him an' then he got uw'ay. Guess I II take this little skinny one this time," Arid poor little Johnny was lifted out of the can and put on the hook.
"Oh!" moaned Johnny. "I ache all over. Why did I ever go over to play with Jimmy today? I knew I should have stayed at home. C)h' look at that great big fish heading toward me. I just know it's going to cat me up. It's opening its mouth! It's got me and it's swallowing me down' But, what's wrong? Why. it's swimming away with me. I 'm glad that mean boy didn't get him. Gee. it's dark in here, though I w'ish the fish
would open its mouth so's I could get some air.......
Ah. it's opening its mouth at last, but there seems to be something wrong I feel a tugging .... There's something coming down It's Jimmy' I guess the mean little boy is going to get us after all. Hello, Jimmy."
"Well, hello. It looks like we re going to die together. I Ia c you said your prayers yet? remarked Jimmy with pretended cheerfulness.
"Yes." I guess were going to die all right We all seem to be on the ground now and I can't see the hook.
I wish the fish would open his mouth so that we could breathe. I'd like to ask him to. but I don't think he could hear me. He's breathing awfully funny .... He's dead' It won't be long now. Jimmy. "

enough to become a nurse. I am not satisfied, und I shall not be until I become a nurse. I shall await that day patiently, however.
I am now going to mention a few of my faults. I have the most terrible temper. In my fits of temper I say many things that 1 regret afterward I have, in fact, a very disagreeable nature, and I have had one ever since 1 was quite voung. It is also hard for me to make acquaintances Besides, is it very difficult for me to trust people or be dependent upon them in any way. I have always been a source of trouble to my mother; but some day I hope that I can do something for my parents, who have done so much for me.
An Honest Potato
I was the biggest, most handsome of all lire potatoes that grew on the vine.
Old Mother Plunt was proud of me.
She said my manners were fine.
I yearned for adventure und travel (My ancestry is of Irish descent)
Some say I’m an Irish ' lemon”;
1‘hcir reason is hard to present.
Even though I belong to Ireland,
I did not stay in my class.
For here’s the talc of my future:
This is what all came to pass
I was raised by a Norwegian farmer.
IXig and sacked by a friendly T)anc.
Sold to u red-headed Scotch grocer And so my life story began.
Along came a big bearded German Who owned u cafe on Thirty-third.
His T rench chef baked me with gusto.
Buttered, puprikacd me. and 1 was ready to serve
I was contemplating my consumer When the Italian waiter reached for me.
Served me to a nice looking Spaniard In this Bohemian restaurant, with tea.
IlTcn along came the Swiss bus boy,
To take a wav what was left of me.
Heigh ho— what matters from where we come, We re Americans on this side of the seal
