Box 104 Continued iron! Page One family since your great, grea*. grandfather —on your mother's side, naturalty-^-ran away with a toad. I forbid you to be an elephant. Get that nonsense out of your head." But Elwin was determined to be an elephant. When (hi began to change from a tadpole into i young frog, he kept pulllrig on his nose to make it longer and learned to blow water 1 through it. He figured that to become an elephant he-would have to eat like a horse so he ate all he couldi, At night he hopped into town to the public library and read every book he could find on elephants. All day long he took elephant-build' ing exercises. Little Elwin ate and he ate. . . and he grew and he grew. . .until finally, at last, he Woke up one morning and found he was —an elephant. At first Elwin was happy. His mother was proud of him, too. . . But his father told him angrily, '''You're nothing but a freak." The other frogs, his former playmates, cut him, dead. Finally one told him rankly, "With all your bid ideas, Elwin, don't you find this pond a little small?" Elwin brooded and brooded. Then one night he packed all his belongings in a small bundle put it over his shoulder, hopped silently in and kissed his sleeping mother goodbye, and ran away to join a circus. He thought the other elephants would welcome him. But they snubbed him 'You have a- strange accertt," they told him. "And why can't you just trudge along -like a decent elephant? Why do you have to hop all the time?" "If I can't join your troupe," said Elwin stubbornly I'll become a star in my own right' And he did. He hired a smart manager and overnight "Elwin, Ihe world's ( only hopping elephant" became world famous The climax of his act came when he slid down a short slide, hopped over twelve barrell at a time a pretty gnl singing —a and landed ori his back feet bowing gracefully When Elwin had become the wealthiest eleohanl in history, he received a "telegram saying "Your old fi irnds and neighbors joined in asking you tb our pond's most illustrious son, to return and be the main,.speaker $t a banquet to kickoff \QurHannuaj community charity drive for sag^d ampjiibms Sorry we can't offpr'fto pay your expenses. Signed Mayor Frog" "Gee, it would bo fun to see the old home pond^ again even though mother-is dead," Elwin told his manager. "ChaTter me a plane" Everybody in the pond was on hand T to welcome Elwin, >His, wrinkled old! father reaphed up and patted him on the tack of his leg and said fondly, "that's my boy Son. I'm proud of you " Cheers ' rose o r every hand when Elwin. got up to speak "that night' at the banquet. "I t is indeed a pleasure—" Elwin began, then went 'hanumph, har-r-rumph." "Got a cold' ' asked the mayor "Oh, no,' Elwin laughed. . and the n told the audience. "Excuse me. .'.just a frog in my thoat." 'A frog?" cried the mayor, looking around to see if any of his constituents were missing, Panic spread t h r o u g h the crowd. Lady frogs gathered their chldren about them and hopped away. The big bullfrogs began hurling mud at Elwin, as they hopped away backward. "I bave reared an assassin," cried his other. Then he, too disappeared. "Look, it's all a mistake," said Elwin. No answer. He looked around wistfully and croacked, "Jug-o-rum, Jug-o-rum. But there was no reply$f The pond was empty. Heart-broken, 'Elwin returned to the circus, made a farewell triumphal tour then retired and bought an aftartment on Pnrk Ave> pue. He spejj't ^he rest of his life in it alone as ,a hermit elephant, reading his press clippings. Moral; In this .world a big heart is rarely understood by small minds.
