this radio broadcasting station. I was reluctant to leave another two of my
classmates, but I desired to start home again.
While traveling the distance from California to Oklahoma, I got into e
train wreck. I was rushed to a hospital in Oklahoma. when I came to my senses
again, I was lying on a hospital bed. Soon the head nurse entered. She smiled

I started for home, glad to have met all of my former schoolmates in
the school of life.

May your lives be even more successful than your
