My Favorite Entr By Lucille Blake, '46 Dear Diary, The last twenty-four hours have been the most nerve-racking arid thrilling of yours truly's long life. It began with my taking in that soldier, which, in the first place, was all nonsense. He had been in some sort of brawl, we gathered. A Someone had found him on the large front porchg he was shot and badly cut. I was firmly against taking him in, but what else was there to do? It was late and I'm the only one in or near our apartment house with med- ical training-something he could use then and there, apparently, He was conscious--I was positive of that. Although his wounds looked bad, they weren't bad enough to cause the state of unconsciousness which, it seemed to me, was just a pretense. After I had fixed him up as well as possible, the others went back to bed, satisfied and thrilled. They are mostly middle-aged women like me, so I didn't let on my real feelings: even then I felt decidedly suspicious. The poor souls hadn't thought of go- in!! through his pockets and I must admit I was too scared to do so. The soldier was still playing 'nos- sum, so, before he could protest, I gave him a good, strong hyuo. which nut him out like a light. When he had been sleeping for about a half hm -". I finally got up courage enough to pull out his wallet. At first ap- pearance it looked like any other man's. It contained a picture of a pretty, young girl fI remember won- dering what she could see in himl. about twenty-three dollars, some arrnv credentials, a civil service card in the name of Bruno Schultz, a small card with two addresses-one in the next apartment house and one over across the tracks, and a clipping' from a newspaper. , "Heavenly days!" I thought, "I'll bet this is important. Maybe it will explain things", and naturally I be- gan to read. "All citizens of southeast Texas, especially of Jefferson and Orange counties, be on the lookout for a man wearing an army uniform of a sergeant. He is a German spy, but speaks without an accent. He is six feet, one-half inches tall, has blue- gray eyes, and blond hair. He is the sun-tanned, athletic type, with no scars or special marks. "This man is dangerous to our refineries and ship yards. Anyone seeing him, please call the nearest police office as soon as possible. A"Caution: This man is very strong. Do not attempt to fight him. Do not attempt to hold him 'unless all resistance is gone. "This man is wanted alive I" I'm pretty wellshockproof-being a nurse-but this was out of my line. I don't remember anything untilthis morning. I guess I fainted and just went to sleep without coming out of my faint. When I did come to, though, I remembered everything in- stantly, something unusual for me. Thirty , H r E-C-H10-E-S 1 -'neat , o 1.53 , . .

The gym was alive with- boys and girls, happy in the fact that their school was victorious. Thirty-two . i , ,i , L , N: i-Er 'UI-Iurry up, Janice," called Jackie. "We'l1 be late for supper if you don't pep it up some." "0. K. I'll be there ina secg let me tie my shoestring." As Janice bent down, 'she saw a light-blue wallet lying on the floor. "I guess it's Jackie's," mused Janice, "I'll take it along. Wait up, Jackie. Here I come." "It's about time. Let's stop at Bailey's for a coke. I think we have time." "O.K. with me." t As the girls entered the drugstore, they were hailed from all sides by their friends, but finally made their way to a corner booth -after stop- ping at about ten tables. "Hi, Jackie and Janice. Sit down. Wasn't it a wonderful game? Did you see that long shot Jimmy made? We couldn't have won without it!" exclaimed Margaret. "And did you see -the way Glenn kept Smith, the star player, guarded? He couldn't do a thing to us," inter- rupted Barbara. So ran the conversation for the next fifteen minutes, with everyone talking at once. "Golly, Jackie," said Janice, look at the time. "Let's go so we'11 have plenty of time to get home." "All right. I'll pay the check. Wait outside for me." Janice waited outside, impatient because of the time Jackie was taking in the long line. "I'll just put the dime for my coke in Jackie's wallet. She won't take it if I don't," thought the girl as she was waiting. Janice rummaged through her purse and finally withdrew the wal- let. On seeing the amount of money .in it, she exclaimed to herself, "Gee, Jackie should be more careful. There's no identification and all her money for her ring is in here! I should keep it until tomorrow until ordering time and teach her a les- son!" Just then Jackie came out of the drugstore. "Here, Janice, hold my books while I put this.new picture of Betty in my wallet. Isn't it good? She just got the proofs back. You' should see the one she gave Jack." "Say, Jackie, is that your wallet?" "Sure, whose do you thing it is? You know mother refused 'to let me buy that pretty blue one in Black's. Mildred Williams went in right after me and bought it. "She said--She wouldn't let you- I mean-You haven't a new wallet?" "No, silly, I told you that. Well, here's my bus. See you in school to- morrow." "I'll meet you at the bench. Come early."
