I retired. My first night in the
open air was great, never remem
ber making a turn in the bed.
It seemed as though I hadn't
half enough sleep when it was 5
a. m. Nolan called a couple of
times, I was dead to the world.
.Waking up I found myself chilled
1 to the bone. He pulled the clothes
off me and I dressed.
Oh, but-1 was sleepy and it
was so cold. Dressing out in the
open is some different from steam
heat and Turkish rugs to step on
when you turn out in the. morning.
Since then I'have met the farm r
regulations; always the first one
at the table, and believe me I am
into the hay as early as any of
them. I do a lot of tramping,
horseback riding hunting, always
in-the open and eat like a horse.
I feel great already.

Lying here limp and dead,
"A waif" and a "mongrel bum."
But some kid's eyes are red
As he waits for his canine chum.
Just a measly cur in the street,
Frowsy and thin and marred.
-Not one of the "doer elite'
But somehow it's sort of hard

And a childish joy is dim.
Just; a measley cur on the street,
To be hauled, like the dirt, ,
No mor.e will his dog heart beat,
Nor his yelp resound at play.
He's only a mongrel stray,
Whom the law says to destroy..
And it's right, of course; but
I'll bet that it hurts some boy. ,
