the writing of better books for
children, he decided to give a medal

Lochinvar came out of the west,
He loved fair Ellen of the Neth
erbly clan. His horse was the fast
est by far. He had one broad
sword. Nothing could stop him un
til he reached the gate of the
Netherby clan.
Ellen’s father wanted to know,
"Have you come in peace or have
you come in war?" Lochinvar an
swered, "I have come for one dance,
and one cup of wine.” The bride
kissed the cup and handed it to
Lochinvar.
The bridegroom was a “dastard
in war and t laggard in love.” He
stood swinging his cap at one side
of the ballroom, while Lochinvar
danced with Ellen.
One touch of the hand and one
whispered word won fair Ellen for
the brave Lochinvar. When they
reached the door where his horse
stood, he swung her on the mare,
sprang in front of her, and away
they rode.—Glen Dora Ward,

the HUNCHBACK OF NOTRE
DAME
The Hunchback of Notre Dame
was a terrible looking person. His
back was just a horrible hump,
which came almost to a point. His
feet and legs turned outwards. He
bad large lips and only a few enor
mous teeth. Besides being deaf he
could not talk very well. It was
bis job to ring the bell in Notre
Dame, and this job had, over a pe
riod of years, made him deaf. Over
bis right eye was a large knot which
made it appear lower than the left
one. The Hunchback had amazing
strength. At times he was very jolly.
No matter how horrible looking he
was, one could not help feeling
sorry for him. He was very good to
those who were kind to him. He
"as always helping the few friends
bo had. .Most people were afraid of
b>m, and, no wonder, tor he was
just about one step from insanity.

I have just finished reading a
book called Katrinka. The author
is Kaskel. It was about a Russian
peasant who later became rich. The
part that I liked best was when
Katrinka met a lady who got her
in the Czar’s dancing class. Her
father and mother had been taken
to Siberia by some Russian offi
cers for having a printing press.
Katrinka danced many times for
the czar. She often tried to tell
him that her mother and father
were in Siberia, but each time she
failed. At last she succeeded in see
ing the czar, and if you want to
know' if her mother and father
came back home, read the book.

This year we hope that our May

JAPAN
This week we have been study
ing Japan in geography. I think
it is the most interesting country
we have studied. The Japanese
peopl are smaller than the Chinese
and quicker. Japan has a warm
c '.mate. It's chief crop is rice. It
also raises much of which is ex
ported. Another expert is silk.
Japan’s chief meat is fish.

The song, "America,” was written
by Reverened Samuel Francis
Smith, who was born in Boston,
October 21, 1808. It was while he
was a student at Andover, at the
age of twenty-four that he wrote
this beautiful anthem. He said that
he wrote it on a scrap of paper in
half an hour. He also said, "I do
not share the regret of those who
deem it an evil that the national
tune of Britain and of America are
the same. On the contrary, I deem
it a new and beautiful tie between
mother and daughter.” The origin
al manuscript is now in the Har
vard University Library. It con
tains eight stanzas.
“America” was first sung on the
Fourth of July, 1832, at a chil
dren’s celebi-ation at Park Street
Church, Boston.

My first visit to the dentist was
r.ot so thrilling. When I walked in
I was shaking all oveT. I sat down
for a while and then the dentist
called me. Boy! When I sat down
in that chair I almost fainted. He
told me to be quiet, and everything
would be all right. I hollowed and
screamed. In fact I just did most
everything. Then all of a sudden
Ouch! and out came my tooth. Boy!
I was very brave to stand that,
don’t you think so?
—Adolf Oterson, 7-B.
Why do we have Easter, do you
know? I will tell you something
that other people think. Some peo
ple think Easter is just to get new
clothes but it really is not. Our dear
Savior rose from the dead on that
day. We should all remember this,
because it was for us he was cru
cified. Easter is not to get Easter
eggs only, but for what I have
told you. On Easter morning when
you awake and start to eat your
eggs remember this, won’t you?
“—Peggy Greene, 7-A.
A special board of experts recent

The fathers of the constitution
had not provided for schools, but
the North West Territory had giv
en every 16th section for a school.
Each district looked after the sup
port of its own school. In poor dis
tricts, the children had no way to
learn to read and write. Some kind
people started charity schools to
learn to read the Bible.
Mass, had the best school and
more people had a chance for edu
cation. People lived in villages,
towns and so it was easy for chil
dren to get together. In the South
it was hard for children to get to
gether because they lived far apart.
The well-to-do children had tutors.
For those who wanted to go be
yond the lower grades, public high
schools sprang up. All over the
country private academies sprang
up for those who could afford it.
Horace Mann of Mass, gave his
life to organizing and improving
the public schools of his native
state. The few colleges grew faster
and faster. In the middle of the 19th
century there was 200 colleges in
the United States.

Longfellow was born Feb. 27,
1S07 in Portland, Maine. When he
was three he went to school. He
learned ho wto say his A.B.C.’s, to
read and spell. One day his teacher
wrote a note to his mother and
said, “Henry W. Longfellow is one
of the best boys in school. He can
read and spell very well.”
When he was small he went hunt
ing with some other boys and shot
a robin; at first he wras very proud
and then he looked at the little
dead bird, thinking that those wings
would never fly again. He said, I
will never shoot another bird again,
and he didn’t. He had three daugh
ters.
After finishing school, he went
to college where he tried poetry.
One of his poems was printed in the
newspaper. He wrote “The Arm
Chair,” “The Arrow and the
Song,” “The Chestnut Treet,” “The
Black Smith Shop,” “The Clock on
the Stairs," and many others. All
boys and girls love his poetry and
love him.

Sunset Park
The art museum has sent us
many invitations. We accepted and
went down. Mrs. Shuffler and Mr.
Parker, the bus driver, took us. Mr.
Johnson, in charge of publicity for
the museum, talked to us. We saw
many interesting and pretty pic
tures. Water colors and oil paint
ings were on display. We had a
good time.
The First grade also made a trip.
They went down to the railroad
station. They went in the dining
car, coaches, baggage cars and the
sleepers. They were most interested
in seeing a car turn on the turn
table. They also went in the bus
station.—Betty Jane Hill, grade 67

Once I went fishing and caught
a little fish,
And when X got home I put it
in a dish
He made a great flounce and felf
on the floor,
My kitty came along and my fish
was no more.
I went to the pet shop and bought
me another,
He was yellow like gold and light
as a feather.
He hides in his rock in a little
round hole,
And I still have him in a little
fish bowl.—Estelle Johnson, grade 5.
Wrightsboro
These beautiful spring days cause
us to turn our steps toward the
flower garden that we have enjoyed
for the last two years.
It was interesting Monday morn
ing before school to see a group from
each grade out in their own plot.
They were just admiring the beauti
ful daffadills.
At present the second grade’s gar
den is the prettiest because it is a
mass of yellow daffadills bobbing
their heads in the breeze. It remind;
me of William Wadsworth’s poem
ayyadolis”shrdlu shrdlu shrdluuetao
"Daffodils” in which he says:
‘‘When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host of golden daffodils,
Beside the lake,
Beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the
breeze.”
The daffodil season will soon be
over "but our tulips are up, and will
be next in bloom.
Our contest for the prettiest gar
den in May and of course the seventh
grade hopes to win. -Inez Millis—7,

The Japanese houses are very dif
ferent from ours. Very little furni
ture is used in the homes. Their
windows are made of paper and in
stead of sliding up as ours do, they
slide back and forth. On the floor
are pretty white mats. When a Jap
anese boy or girl enters the house,
ue always removes ms snoes or san
dals. The door at the places are call
ed “shoes off place.’’ The walls are
made of very thin paper and wood.
In the day the mother slides back
all the walls ana makes one big
room. At night she slides them back
in place and they are ready for
night. —Lillian Lanier, Grade 3.
There are many Christians in
Japan, but most of the Japanese peo
ple believe in Buddha and celebrate
his birthday April 8. Host of the
children dress in costumes of an

flowers. They also wear garlands of
cherry blossoms and carry wands
made of cherry blossoms. They form
a parade and march to the Flower
temple and pray to the statue of
Buddha. —Mary Morrison Stanland,
Grade 3.
The girls and boyg of Japan are
always happy and always doing
something with their busy little
hands. When they go to school
there is some one to meet them at
the steps. When they return home,
there is someone to bow to them at
the door. The children have bright
eyes and black hair. They are never
whipped and not often punished.—

climbed up and started to put one
in her mouth, but I kept her from

A POEM
The following poem, written by
Genevieve Starling of Tileston, is *
bit too long to print in verse style,
thus it is printed as prose.
Mothers and fathers just listen
to me. If you want your children
to be happy and free teach them
to work and play with others if
you want to be the right kind ot
mothers.
Listen to me and take my ad
vice, I know you want them to al
ways be nice. They will love you
and cherish you, but sometimes
embarras you.
But back In their heads Just
have a little spot for one who is
dearest, which means a lot. If they
are lead too far away, just leave
a little room—they’ll come back
one day.
You’ll worry and grieve over
your children some day; they’ll
owe you a lot they never will re
pay. If they ever stray from the
good training at home, they are
forever lost and always will roam.
Yojj look out on life’s journey
far down the road, and there you
see them bearing a very heavy
load. So take my advice, young
mothers, don’t ever let them go
astray.
