From all reports this play went over "big" and was enjoyed by young and old. The young who saw themselves mirrored on the stage and "the old who saw the problems that would confront them -when their own darling caught the June bug and went f'June Mad." Medal For Valor fContinued from Page 291 Then they were there. AAs the four-legged soldier dug his paws deep into the sandy beach, he seemed to hear the voice saying, "You've just begun. Luck, old boy!" As quickly as they had come, the raging noises went, and everything on the island was silent. A state of excitement lingered over the little scouting party as they huddled around a signal map in an effort to locate their exact position. "Here we are," one soldier pointed out on the map. "We are only. a short distance from Tree M, where we are to receive a reply to our message." "Good work," said Sergeant Svendsen. "Now, men, keep your eyes peeled for a white pigeon. There she- comes, right on sched- ule. Here's hoping we get to Tree M before she does." Forty 1 , Y ..',- , ' 1 ,vig ,T .. - r X. With as much tenseness as his master, Eric watched the graceful white bird soar through space closer and closer to its destination. "Men, that bird means life or death to us," Svendsen said serious- ly. "We must get that message." Suddenly a shot pierced the still- ness. The bird plummeted toward the ground and into the icy waters off shore. A muffled groan rose from the little group of men. No sooner had the bird fallen than Eric Red's body began to quiver with the eagerness of a true retriever. With only .instinct.to guide him, he launched himself into the bitter surf so quickly that he did not hear his master's frantic cry, "Come back, Red, you'll be killed." Slowly he pressed on toward the bird as bullets pinged around him. Closer and closer he came. Ah, now he had her securely in his mouth, ready to return to the shore. A sharp pain pierced his side as he swam, but he refused to give up his struggle. Shakily he crawled into some thickets on shore. The pain in- tensified, but Eric Red forced his way through the underbrush until he caught sight of the men for whom he was searching. With a whimper of pain a badly-wounded hero col- lapsed under the strain of his deed as he laid- his prize at the feet of his master and felt strong arms em- bracing him, while a well-known voice said, "Good work, fella, good work." Weeks later Eric Red lay curled up at the feet of his buddy-in-arms, peacefully gnawing the remains of a ham bone. He could hear his master proudly relating his heroic dog's ac- tion as he displayed the beautiful bronze medal awarded Eric for valor and loyalty to duty. Lieutenant .Tame Svendson was very happy that day, and Eric Red's heart surged with triumphant joy, for he knew that he had pleased his master. E-C-H-0-E-S V N , ' VI, ..

Below, the gaily colored parakeets - Chatter in palms that lean o'er waters blue. l The gentle surf rolls up to lap the beach, And breezes soft caress and cool the sand. The rising sun with 'hues of gold and peach, Tints up the fleecy clouds that grace the land. The valley swathed in its cloak of smoke and haze Awakes to greet the coming of the day. The freshness of the night abides and stays - In every nook and glen of forest shade. Without this marvel done each day for us WlJat source -would be our hopes, our ' life, our trust?

I Forever Free By Honore Morrow IN March, 1861, the United States was alive with inward struggleg the strong bonds of the Union were severed and bleeding. The Southern States, joining together to form the Confederacy, elected Jefferson Davis to lead them in their fight-for slav- ery, while Abraham Lincoln, the backyard lawyer, was inaugurated as President of the United States. Be- cause the author gives an accurate account of the arguments for and against slavery, one understands the Southern land-owners' great need for slaves, but realizes that the equality of man holds true, regardless of race. Though his appearance does not- merit it, -Lincoln was possessed of a brilliant mind and a charming per- sonality. He awkward height, his too prominent ears, his shambling gait, his huge hands and feet, and the striking sparkle of his grey eyes, full, deep, and penetrating, were merely disguise for a man, whose genius will be remembered forever. Mrs. Morrow' excels in her portrayal of Lincoln and his struggle to over- come many hardships. ' When the time came for Lincoln and Tad, his youngest son, to leave the Union army camp, which they visited, Taddie seemed to have mys- teriously disappeared. Finally, he was found by the bridge, crying 'for his father. On his arrival, Lincoln asked, "Did you get homesick all of a sud- den, Taddie?" f'Don't touch me, Papa,".commanded the tiny lad .in a voice hoarse from long sobbing. "Pm unda' my own a' west. I sent fo' you to tell you I have ,to stay hea'alI night." "What bad thing have you done, Taddie?" Lincoln asks solemn- ly, "I killed something I loved. The co'po'al gave me a little weeny white kitten. Then I stopped hea' to play with itg I played it was Jeff Davis and I was an Indian chief and I threw my bowie knife at it. I didn't want to hu't it but the di'ty skunk of a E-C-H-O-E-S . , knife slipped and went in the kit- ten's soft belly and it mewed and mewed, and I couldn't stop it or help it, and it died. I knew you wouldn't punish me so I'm doing it myself." In this touching scene, the author de- scribes'the character of "Tiny Tad" and his knowledge of his father's sympathethetic understanding. "Forever Free," an intriguing his- tory of Lincoln's life -in the White House, is a fast-moving account of the "Great Em,ancipator's" struggles for the abolition of slavery. Becom- ing familiar with the prominent poli- ticians and problems of the dav, the reader thereby increases his knowl- edge of facts concernnig the Civil War. Many of the everyday happen- ings which influenced Lincoln's mag- nificent decisions arelvividly and ac- curately described by Mrs. Morrow, whose ceaseless research into the life of Lincoln is shown by the length of the bibliography. Exceeding-ly en- ioyable are the scenes concerning Lincoln's relations with his family: his gentleness in the rearing ofhis children is the source of much hu- mor. Highlv entertaining, this en- chanting book should be enjoyed by any reader whol desires a better knowledge of Lincoln's term as Pres- ident ofl-our country. Ann Levy, '46. Red Rock . Thomas Nelson Page THE setting is laid in the' South, somewhere in that vague region partly in one of the old Southern States and partly in the yet vague "Land .of Memory." The people in the story speak of it as, "the Red Rock section," "the old country," or just, "my country, sir." Of the many characters the one who impresses the reader most is J acquelin Gray, the son of the owner of Red Rock. In the opening scenes, Jacquelin and Blair Cary, the beau- tiful young daughter of Dr. John Cary are playmates. When war is de- clared, Jacquelin, fifteen years- old, . , '.-13.14 x I 'I leaves to fight for the South, and when he returns, to his home after the war, he finds many of the old places destroyedg because of' an illness, Jacqulin takes a trip around' the world. Upon his return, his Mo- ther dies leaving his brother, Rupert, and him under the guidance of Aunt Thomasia. With the other men of that section, he then fights the car- pet-baggers and finally overcomes their tyrannical rule. In the end, Jacquelin marries Blair and returns to his former home. Mr. Page, a prominent author of Southern literature, lucidly describes the rolling Red Rock country, the for- ests and meadows, and the sparkling streams bubbling over rocks or wind- ing under willows and oaks. We see the realm of old time courtesy and high breeding, when all men bow low before ladies and wear swords to de- fend their honor. The author has given us an engrossing novel in which he brilliantly combines adven- ture, tragedy, and humor. Rhea Brennan, '46. Swift Rivers Cornelia Meigs THIS adventurous story of the early nineteenth century has for its setting the section of the turbulent Mississippi River between a small Swedish settlement in Minnesota and St. Louis, Missouri. In "Swift Rivers" Chris Dahlberg, the main character, is a young Swedish boy with 'all the determina- tion and courage a youth can pos- sess. Being ill treated by his uncle, Chris leaves him and goes to live with his aged grandfather who abides in a large forest. Striving to find a way to make money to support his grandfather and himself, he cuts timber from the forest and floats it down the river to St. Louis. ' An arresting scene is one in which some of the most valuable logs dis- appear during a wreck which occurs on the trip down the river. Chris and a friend desperately- set out in a small boat to look lfor them. After hours of searching, the boys find the logs in a small lagoon guarded by hostile Indians. Plans are madefor retrieving them without the Indians Forty-one .. ,,. 1.,.U. VN- M - .-X-Y-, ,.-.. Ps .f .. I -- is. , Y 4 gage f',if-'11',,'. :L , fe - 3: ,f-.irgl-':'.1:..fg1P" '-Q,-.
