rji 11 E drawings of hoys were
somewhat disappointing.
J- .Many of the best and most
capable artists did not do well at
all, and others made no effort to
Contribute to this topic.
Still even with this drawback
the page is rilled today with a
group of pictures, each repre
senting in the best way the vari
ous pursuits of school boys. The
pictures for the front page today
were drawn by Irwm Haines,
whose drawings have already be
come familiar to Junior readers.
The most recent achievement of
Irwin Haines was the invention
of an airship which will sail, as
he demonstrated to a large group
of spectators at the Thirtieth
street schoolhouse the other day.
For that reason, and also fur
the exceptional quality of his
work throughout this contest, the
Junior editor takes pleasure to
day in using his two drawings
for the front page group.
Hazel Cox, 850 East Forty-sec
ond street, is another young ar
tist whose work is advancing
very rapidly, and within the next
fortnight the front page picture
will be one of her own design, a
cleverly illustrated poem, in
which her ability to draw pretty
girls and attractive looking chil
dren will have full play. She also
submitted a picture for the con
test this week, and only on ac
count of lack of space it was
omitted from the paper.
Virginia Smith, 413 Islay
street, Santa Barbara, contribut
ed a group of boys enjoying va
cation sports, but the picture was
hardly up to her standard. She
lias also sent a large drawing for
the front page, but the verses are
printed in lettering that is alto
gether too small, and for that rea
son the picture cannot be used.
Alta Dunlap, 771 East Seven
teenth street, Polytechnic high
school, is one of the newcomers •
in the list of artists, and her pic
ture of a small boy at the seaside
is very promising, and her work
will undoubtedly improve in the
way of applying the ink and get
ting her shadows better placed.
Edith Higgins, Huntington
Park, box 52, whose pictures
have been missed recently, con
tributed a rather clever sketch
without any faces in evidence.
Edith has drawn many pictures
for the Junior which are far su
perior to this bit of work, and it
would be unfair to her to use
anything so far below her usual
excellent standard.
Kitty Carlson, 921 East Fifty
fourth street, Hooper avenue
school, contributed two pictures,
one of which is reproduced today.
Irene Tanner, 251 East Thirtieth
street, Thirtieth street school,
submitted an ambitious drawing
of a boy and elephant. The pic
ture has very difficult foreshort
ening, in which she shows abil
ity, but she neglected to intro
duce background of any sort, and
a picture of this style must have
something more than the two fig
ures to make it effective.
Other promising pictures were
received from Bernadette Heer
drink. Polytechnic high school,
Boys and girls of public school age are all invited to compete
for a prize of $1.00 to be given for the best pen and ink drawing,
which must be strictly original. „
Topic: "Vacation Days." Pictures must suggest in some
way the idea of vacation, freedom from care and worry, and may
follow any preferred line. Pictures must be 41 inches wide and
3 inches deep and must reach this office not later than Thursday,
Tune 24—for publication July 4. ,
Topic: "A Glimpse of My Nearest Playground." This may
be some vacant lot, a park, public playground, the corner of the
orchard, a baseball ground in the pasture lot—anything in fact
wherein boys or girls congregate to amuse themselves. The land
scape effect is to be of first consideration, although figures may be
introduced if desired. Pictures must be 4-J inches wide by 3|
inches deep and must be received at this office not later than
Thursday, July 1, for publication July 11.
All work submitted for this contest must be drawn in jet
black drawing ink on smooth white Bristol board. It must be
original and entirely the work of the boy or girl who submits it.
Pictures for this contest must be accompanied by name, ad
dress and grade of school (if any) of the artist. „
No drawings will be returned.
Address all drawings to Aunt Laurie, Sunday Herald Junior,

MANY attempts have been nmde by
Ingenious writers to put the
whole alphabet In a single Sen
tence wihout duplication of letters.
Professor De Morgan, the famous
mathematician, tried to juhkl'l the
alphabet Into one sentence, each letter
being used but once. 'Alter many fruit
less attempts he decided to compromise
exai tness by using i for j, and further
by regarding U and v as the same let
er. Then his filial acCQlltpllshment read
as follows:
"I, quartz pyx, who fling muck
A 1 lirst he tl ill not appreciat the full
significance of his accomplishment, says
the Housekeeper. "At last," he says,
"I happened to lie reading a religious
writer who threw aspersions on his
Opponents thick and threefold. Hey
flayl came Into my head, this fellow
flings muck beds. He must be; a quartz
"Then I remembered that a pyx Is
a sacred vessel and quartz is a hard
stone, as hard as tlie heart of a reli
gious foe curscr. So that the line is
the motto of a ferocious sectarian who
turns his religions vessels into muck
holders for the benefit of those who
will not see what he sees."
The professor published his sentence
and called upon others to outdo him
if they could. The following are sam
ples of the efforts which resulted:
"Quiz, hy Whigs, export fund back."
"Dumpy quiz, whirl back fons next."
"Get nymph; quiz sad brows; fix
The professor awarded the palm of
the competition to this last sentence.
"It is good advice," he explains, "to a
young man, very well expressed under
the circumstances. In more sober Eng
lish it would be: 'Marry, be cheerful,
watch your business."
Even when the duplication of letters
is permitted the crowding of the entire
alphabet into a single coherent sen
tence is not an easy task, and such ex
amples as "John P. Brady gave me a
black walnut box of quite small size,"
which is perhaps the best known, are
neither numerous nor important.
There is one verse In the Bible which
contains all the letters of the alpha
bet except j; this is the twenty-first
verse of the seventh chapter of Ezra,
and as the verse contains some forty
words the collocation Is only note
worthy because it occurred without
previous design.
None of the examples here given are
perhaps as good as that reoently
quoted In the New York Sun: "Pack
my box with five dozen liquor Jugs."
This contains the entire alphabet, is a
perfect coherent sentence and has only
thirty-two letters, in comparison with
forty-seven letters in the "John P.
Brady" example. So it would seem to
hold the palm.
Having procured a small flossy
feather the players sit in a circle as
closely together as possible. One of
the party then throws the feather as
high as possible into the air and it is
the duty of all the players to prevent
it from alighting on them by blowing
at it whenever it comes their direction.
Any player whom it falls upon must
pay a forfeit.
Mrs. Ippi wouldn't let Ida hoe in
the garden nor Delia wear Carolina*
new jersey, because, she said, "I want
you to go riding with the other girls. '
Miss Ouri rode Island. Virginia said,
"I'll mount Tana," but Georgia said.
' iII stay home so I can sass ma."
They had a race up the main road,
but wouldn't let Mary land a wnner.
