TttR GAnDEN ISLAND fUfcSDAY, JANUARY 17. 1922
WITH THE GIRL RESERVES
I. ON THE TRAIL
"Oh me! oh my!" Bighcil llety
aloud. ,-Tcmorrow ends our most
wonderful of camping days."
"Just a reul made to order place,
Isn't It?" asked Mary.
"But we will have the pleasant
memories to live with us forever,"
said Dorothy, twirling some gnus
between her lingers.
The girls had just had tent in
spection and were waiting for one
of the leaders to coino and drill
them. They sat grouped about,
talking of the good times they had
hud on this camping trip in tho
Vermont hills. There were ten of
them, the Dandelion corps of tho
Brockton High School Girl Reserves.
With Miss Bottomly and Miss Ab
bott they were camping in a biij,
thick forest way up in the moun
tains. They had been here for nine
days and on the morrow they were
"Let us go on a long hike today
away back in the forest," suggest
ed Miss Bottomly, as she joined tho
group, "and have supper by a gurg
"Hurrah! Hurrah!" shouted the
Tho morning passed quickly. "Oh
I am glad we are to have another
hike before we leave," said Cather
ine, as they were packing the sup
per. "But I hate having to put up the
supper all the time," grumbled Bet
ty. "I should think you'd be glad to
do such a little thing, to be able to
go on a hike," said Mary, the op
timist. "Anyway a Girl Reserve is
ready for service."
They were ready to start. The
girls were allowed to pair off by
two's; so Betty and Mary were one
of the pairs. They hiked along with
the others for a while, then drop
ped back. The rest went on telling
stories and riddles and gathering
wild flowers. They thought nothing
of Betty and Mary's absence because
they often were far behind, but al
ways caught up at the end.
The sun was going down so they
stopped under a big birch tree.
"Here Is a beautiful tree," called
Catherine. The sun's rays were Just
penetrating the leaves of the birch
making little sun fairies dance here
and there. Miss Bottomly thought
they had better have supper im-

"When they were ready to start back
Miss Abbott became very anxious
and said the girls must be lost. "It
is too dark to go into tne torn 10
look for them," said Miss Bottomly.
"We had better hurry back to
camp; perhaps they are there."
Meanwhile Betty and Mary had
seen an interesting path and follow
ed it for a short distance. They
wandered farther and farther look
ing for wild flowers. They could not
find a dog-tooth violet and if they
found this they would be granted a
point. It was steadily growing dar
ker but they were so engrossed in
their search that they forgot every
thing else. Suddenly Betty looked
around, saw how dark it was and
became very much alarmed. She
knew they had lost the trail and j
could never find it In the dark. j
'We had better stay here for th.3 ;
nif;ht," said Mary. j
'I just can't," whimpered Betty,
"I will die." j
"You certainly won't dies so soon,"
laughed Mary. "Be a Girl Reserve.!
This is fun." j
"I don't see how you can say j

fun. Let's gather some leaves and
' They had been asleep for awhile
when Betty awakened. "Oh Mary,
what's that noise?" said Betty in a
frightened whisper. Mary listened.
She laughed. "That is just an owl.
Go to sleep now an don't be afraid,
-nd remember I am here and will
save you if anything comes up."
They awoke next morning with
the sun streaming In their faces.
"My Goodness! Where are we?"
chuckled Mary. Then she recalled
what had happened.
"We had better hurry and find
the trail," said Betty. "We can eat
some blackberries on the way be
cause I'm just ravenous."
"Oh, dear, we are going to lose
our chevrons for losing ourselves,"
They reached camp more quickly
iaa they had expected.
"Here are our lost hikers!" cried
"Where have you been?" scream
"A search party is out looking
for you," said Miss Abbott, severe
ly. "The girls related their story.
Miss Abott said. "You used com
mon sense, I think, about not try
ing to find the trail when it was
. so dark."
"Never wander off like that a
gain, though," said Miss Bottomly.
"Think of the trouble and anxiety
jou have caused us."
"Shall we lose our chevrons," ask
Miss Bottomly hesitated. "Well,
ou certainly used Girl Reserve
sense," 'she said, "after you were
"Three cheers for our two dandy
Girl Reserves!" shouted all the oth

One day, camera in hand, 1 set
fortn secretly to get some pictures
of our corps: Would you like to see
tuem'f Here they are in our snap
Look. I wonder if the girls would
ijcugulze themselves. You know
how it is with simps, some are na
tural and some are not.
See how diligently Kam Chung is
studying. Her work has always been
good so you wonder why this ex
tra effort. 1 will tell you. If a girl
rases her school average 10 per cent
for a certain length of time she
gats Girl Reserve credit and this
point will bring her nearer to a
chevron. Kam Chung's aim is to get
as many chevrons as possiblo.
Here is small Emma. See her tall
hollyhocks and her green vegeta
bles. She is working very hardt con
scientious Emma. I haven't a pic
ture of her signalling but she can
do the semaphore most of the girls
Yes, this is Sueno in the kitchen.
Her mind is all on the jelly she is
making. A point for each kind.

She is trying to get up her courage

She looks here as if she might meet
with failure, but she is persisent
and will be successful in the end
as you can see in this second pic
ture. Nellie Is madly dashing off some
pictures which she thinks resem
bles birds' nests. Here's another
snap of her learning to play her
fifth team game to win five points.
May is chasing the chickens out
of her flower garden. In her hand
is a wild flower that she has press

she is going to keep those chickens
out, so beware, chickens!
And there is Tamayo, the corps'
young poet, who has written a song
and a poem in our honor. We hope
har ambition will keep up.
Osago is learning the poem "Trees "
by Joyce Kilmer. Her eyes are con

LIHUE GRAMMAR SCHOOL GIRL
(By Miss Alice Young, Advisor)
The Gill Reserves of the Lihue
grammar school are now an organ
ized body and ready to do some
good work. The girls have divided
their members into three corps,
each with its own leader and flow
er. At present they are also work
ing on some corps songs. Corps No.
I has chosen Stella Thomas, pres
ident of the Reserves as their lead
er; Haruko Minatoya, heads the sec
ond group and wears the begonia;
and the pink hibiscus designates the
third group with Yachio Tatcishl as
The regular meetings are called
every Monday at 2 p. in., in room
23, with Stella Thomas, the presi
dent, in the chair. At the last meet
ing Henrietta Wedemeyer was el
ected secretary to fill the vacancy
when Leila Aiu resigned from that
position on account of her heavy
school work. Tomoe Ota has beau
chosen to attend the financial af
fairs of the organization.
A short business meeting is con
ducted by the girls themselves al
ways in a very orderly and business
like manner. Each week a girl from
each corps is uppointed by the
leader to give a current event
and great interest has been sown in
giving interesting topics in a pleas
ing manner. Ten or fifteen minutes
is then given to some special piece
of work. It may be explaining some
phase of Girl Reserves which ev
eryone does not understand or a
bit of first aid work. Just at pres
ent they are working on a panto
mime to be given at the Mother
and Daughter banquet at the high
school on Saturday, Jan. 21. Five
girls, Fujiko Yamasaki, Ella Ah
You, Frances Thomas, Julia Panui,
and Henrietta Wedemeyer are tak
ing part and it promises to be very
interesting fcand amusing.
Then, as the old saying goes,
"The last is the best of all the
game," every one goes outside for
a rousing good game in which ev
eryone can take part. There is an
earnest desire on the part of Miss
Hanson, the advisors and the girls
themselves to overcome the round
ed shoulder and hollow chests that
we see among some of the girls.
Miss Edith Rice and Miss Alice
O. Young have been chosen as the
two advisors for this group.
With Miss Hanson as leader and
the keen enthusiasm of the girls
themselves, Girl Reserves promises
to be a real factor in Lihue com

ill. OFF FOR A HIKE
'I ho jolly hikers of tho Coreopsis
and Hibiscus corps, with their lead
ers, went for a tracking hike on
Saturday. We started late, but oh'!
you all missed the fun. The hibiscus
g.rls led the hike und Edene and i
Eleanor scattered torn bits of pa
pir on the way to mark the trial.
"This will be too easy for them,"
Let's go through a cane field and
climb over that high stone wall,"
Eleanor remarked. Surely they
would have looked hard for our
trail. Thinking that was not enough
work for them to do, we crossed the
road and walked along a ditch, then
climbed over a high stone wall. We
reached the beach and here we scat
tered more papers, then entered a
thick grove ot iron woods.
"I think I hear them laughing,"
said Edene starting to run. We all
run as fast as our legs would carry
us, then stopped and looked behind.
No one was in sight. To make our
trail harder, we wandered into the
ironwoods again, then jumped from
one rock to another along the rocky
Finally we reached our destina
tion the lighthouse. We marked the
trail to a spot right in front ot us
and sat down to wait. Soon we
spied them coming.
After luncheon we followed the
shore past the lighthouse near Na
wiliwili. We looked for wild flowers
and two of us found nearly enough
to press and win a point.
Before long we were in the Niu
malu river swimming. There w-as a
big log in the water and you can
imagine how that made the swim
more enjoyable. Don't you wish you
had been with us?

! and goodness.

Girl Reserve Songs.
(Tune: Old Black Joe.)
Come where the sea lies gleaming
in the sun
Come where the days are filled
with work and fun,
Come where the. moon shines forth
her silver ray.
The Girls Reserves are hiking, hik
ing on their way.
We're coming, we're coming,
From the hills, the woods, the sea.
Old Mother Nature calls her daugh
ters, You and me.
Come where we learn the wisdom
of the wood.
Come where we prove that simple
things are good.
Come where we pledge allegiance
to our land,
America has called her daughters,
here we stand.
(Tune: Tree Blind Mice.)
Girl Reserves, Girl Reserves
Happy are we, happy are we.
Jolly good will is tho entrance key
If you don't believe it just come
And if you come you will always
be a Girl Reserve.
