THE AMERICAN KID
BY H. M. COCHRAN.
A school kid looks more like himself,
When dirty are his hands and face;
And comfort is a ruling thing,
If his necktie's out of place;
If his shoes are tied why say that's
They shouldn't be tied at all;
His hair should never be cut nor
On his collar his locks should" fall
A button should be off oiythe front
( of his blouse,
His trousers should bag-' at .the
His coat should be torn at the sleeve
In a prominent place to see.
If all these things 'would' stand 'out
If he wore a cap for a lid;
Why then you Could tell you could
tell it just as wellj
That he was an American kid.
Even the Franklin electrical kite is
an example of an idea that came al
most simultaneously to two persons
unknown to" each other. Franklin's
kite was sent up in a thunderstorm
in June, 1752. and in July, 1752, Dr.
Jacques de Romas performed the
same experiment at Nerc, France,
without having heard of the other
kite". In 1764 the French Academy of
Sciences formally recognized the in
dependent work of Dr. de Romas.
