About a week latar tiia chiMren w--?re talking as=jin about the Fourth of July money. Sach had fifty cents and bo'.h were anticipating the pleasant Fourth of July. "I say. bin I feel sorry for anyone who won't have money for the Fourth." said Jim. ".lack O'Mally's the only one I know of who won't." answered May, thoughtfully. "'.Vhy. I'd forgotten him!" cried Jim. "Ho wouldn't spend it foolishily it' he did have the money," May said. "What would he do with it?" asked Jim in open surprise, "Why. I don't know," answered May, slow!}'. "H'rnph!" exclaimed Jim. "Bread. I suppose," May replied doubtfully. "Bread!" Jim said disgustedly. "Clothes, more likely. His trousers a r e all patched and ragged." "And his sister's clothes are awfully faded, too." agreed Mary. "Why couldn't we give them our money, some of it. at lean'.'" demanded Jim. "V.'hy. that would b:- nice." May cried. "We could give them each something," Jim went on. "Yes. and their mother, too." May said excitedly. "Oh!" cried Jim in dismay a few minutes later, "will they accept?" "Why. of course—oh, dear, pride?" May sighed. ""Yes." Jim answered, disappointedly. "W'hat a fearful thing pride- is," exclaimed May. ••[ know." suggested Jim. "We'll put the package on the front porch, early in the morning, and put a card on it saying, 'In memory of those who gave their lives for their country.'" And so they did. a LUCILLE COTT 10 years nld (prize winner), Martinez UNCLE JOHN'S STORY "\Vh.2re are we going to sp-und our vacation .for the Fourth of July?" asked Carol. "That's our secret," answered their dud. "Please t,-!l us," begged Henry. "Yuur mother woulj never forgive me if I !o!o." snicl Mr. Martin. "But you children had better g«t to bed if you wish to sec your Aunt Polly and Uncle John tomorrow." The secret was out — they were to se^ Uncle John tomorrow. They reached Jamestown, New Jersey. It was dusk. After a fine supper Uncle John told one of his famous stories. In 1774 there lived a hard-working bus honest man. This man had a very bad temper. When war broke out in 1775 he was strongly against the English, He was one of the first to join. His men would make him angry so the fight would be more furious. "And," finished up Uncle John, "that Charles Henry, is where you get the great name of Charles Henry Martin." The next day they had a picnic. Then they had more stories. But Carol and Henry agree to this day that Uncle John's story was best, MARIE VADON 9 years old (prize winner), Cloverdale THE TABLES TUK-V Our family and two other families had been camping about two days before the Fourth of July. There was one man called Fred. He was always playing jokes on people. I was sitting in a chair reading when he sneaked up behind me, and did he scare me? Righv there and then I decided I would set even with him. I hunted around until I found a piece of red paper. I put some dirt in it and then pasted it. Next I got s. piece of string and stuck it inside of the paper. I slipped up behind Fred when he was talking to another man and put it under him and shouted. "Look out!" You should have seen him jump. When he found out he had been fooled, was he mad? I told him it wasn't so funny when the tables turned, was it? I had to look out for him all the rest of that day. MARY MARION 13 years old (prize winner), Morgan Hill GOOD DEEDS It was the Fourth of July. All was quiet in the home where Alice, Betty and Mary Jane lived. Pretty soon Betty came up to their mother and said. "Mother, are we going lo have any spending money this Fourth of July?" "No, Betty, we cannot afford to give you any." At this the children were unhappy. Their mother continued, "But you may so out and play with Jane and Bobby tonight." The children felt very happy, because they hardly ever played with Jane and Bobby. • That night while they were all out play in? Jane's dress caught on fire and she started to run. Betty grabbed her and ripped off the burning dress and took off her own old coat and wrapped Jane in it and carried her into the house. Jane's parents, who were rich, gave Betty $500 for saving their beloved child, and Betty took the money home and thoy p". !:v c' : "•_ ";• '. '•'"'-• n.;' ! '.-r. PHIIJ.IP MILLSPAUGH JK. 12 years old (prize winner) TWO HAPPY BOYS Tommy Johnston and Gorden Greb were happy this day because those two boys were picked out of a firoup of thirty boys and girls, each from a different room iii school. They all made speeches on the Fourth of July. The judges picked them as being the best in the school. But that wasn't alt. for they are going to run against the other schools for school championship. Now Tom.Tiy was a very poor boy. He had to work nights after school to support himself and his mother. But he also worked hard day and night making and memorizing his speech for Fourth of July. He was quite talented. All the other boys had elocution teachers to teach them, but Tommy did not have the money to have an elocution teacher, so he went along without one. It was (he Fourth of July and everybody was having a grand time. About half the town was going to the contest. Door prizes were given away, there were shows, peep shows and every kind of amusement you could think of until the contest started. AH the mothers and fathers of the children who were delivering speeches were given special seats. Tommy's mother was very happy because her son was giving a speech. All the speeches except Tommy's were given. Pie said to himself, "I'm glad I chose the story about the first Fourth of July instead of things they do nowadays on Fourth of July. When it was Tommy's turn to make his speech luj (old about "How the new country wanted to be free from Great Britain. And Thomas Jefferson drew up the Declaration of Independence." The judges went out and said to themselves, "Tommy's speech is the best because he told the real meaning of it." And so it was that Tommy won, and his school got the loving cup with his name on it. There was no happier mother in the world than Tommy's mother that day. 0— • • — "FRANCES GILBERT 11 vcars old (prize winner) FOURTH OF JULY IN BED Poor Joy was sick in bed, which she didn't like one bit. She had been there two weeks already and it was terrible to her because she was such a lively little girl. "I've had enough of this old bed!" she cried ono ciay to her mo'iher. Of course Mrs. Peters expected this, for Joy was so restless. It was nearing the Fourth of July, but Joy was still requested by the doctor to stay in bod until her fever went down. "Oh, dear!" she cried, "I'll have to stay in bed and miss the fireworks at the lake." But good Mrs. Peters had been planning all along for a Fourth of July celebration at home since Joy got sick. All dny Joy thought how terrible it was going to be to lie in bed and not be able to go to the lake and see the fireworks. After dinner that night Joy went to sleep, but this didn't last long. Suddenly she was awakened by laugh- ii-t; and •a!'-:'i"T. The witv'fi".- by (ho siH«; of her bed was open and sho could hear l.-iughier and see groups of people in the backyard and could see the fireworks at the lake. Could she be dreaming? At the side oC her pillow was a large dish of ice-cream an<( cake. Understanding the surprise; she began to oat it. Nearly the entire neighborhood wai 'here, from old Mr. Jake to three-year- uld Baby Joan. While Joy ate the ice- cream she listened to their talk and looked at the fireworks down a! the lake. Joy loved to watch the beautiful colors come and go. Finally she fell asleep, th« most joyful liltlc girl there ever was. I think that was even a nicer Fourth of July thnn most children had.

Independence, commanded by Captain Forthridgc, lay by in* island of Sumatra. The moon was hidden by clouds :md s<- the night watchers did not see dark skinned forms climbing the sides of the ships. The cry "Pirates" rang through the air. All hands rushed on deck. In desperation. Captain Forthridgs. knowing it meant lile or death, tor* open a box of fireworks. Cartwheels, Roman candles and rockets lit the sky !<> ri glorious hue. One of the lenders of the pirales was hit by a purple ball of fire and the boat dnvw off. But, unknown 1o the captain and his crew, another boatful wja climbing up the anchor chain. One- of the bo.xes of fireworks caught fire accidenliy and this was hurled in t.o their boat. Rockets exploded, Roman candles burst and showered sparks upon the pirates. A sharp breeze came up and carried the American ship away, leaving th« cuthroats to restore order among them- MAR.IOR5G A VILA 13 years old, Kin ff City FOURTH OF JULY I enjoy thi-' dnv Because it >s gay.
