DEAR READERS: If the column today is macabre or de pressing, I apologize to those of you who look to me for a laugh. But I was deeply moved by a Kalamazoo teen-ager who asked me to reprint this fantasy which appeared in the Tiger Tattler the school paper of Lawrence. Here it Is. T i 11 e: In Love With Life—or How It Would Be If I Were Killed On an Automobile Accident. Agony claws my mind. I am a statistic. When I first got here I felt very much alone. I was- overwhelmed with grief and I expected to find sympathy. I found no sympathy. I saw only thousands of others whose bodies were as badly mangled as mine. I was given a number and placed in a category. The category was called "Traffic Fatalities." The day I died was an ordinary school day. How I wish I had taken the bus! But I was too cool for the bus. I remember how I wheedled the car out of Mom. "Special favor," I pleaded. "All the kids drive." When the 2:50 hell rang I threw my books in the locker. I was free until 8:40 tomorrow morning! I ran to the parking lot — excited as the thought of driving a car and being my own boss Free! It doesn't matter how the accident happened. I was goofing off — going too fast. Taking crazy chances. But I was enjoying my freedom and having fun. The last thing I remember was passing an old lady who seemed to be going awfully slow. I heard a deafening crash and felt a terrific jolt. Glass and steel flew everywhere. My whole body seemed to be turning inside out. I heard myself scream. Suddenly I awakened. It was very quiet. A police officer was standing over me.. Then I saw a doctor. My body was mangled. I was saturated with blood. Pieces of jagged glass were sticking out all over. Strange that I couldn't feel anything. Hey, don't pull that Hints From Heloise Dear Heloise: Here's a hint I haven't seen before. The instant dry creamer for coffee is supposed to be sprinkled on top of the hot coffee after the coffee has been poured In the cup. You would bo surprised the number of people who put instant coffee and cream in the cup and then pour boiling water over it, or pour hot coffee from the pot over the cream. It just doesn't work as well. For some reason when that cream is sprinkled on top it just seems to blend right in, oh, so beautifully! One day my daughter was here. I used instant coffee and cream. She wanted to know how I kept It from curdling. I told her and she was amazed. She said she would tell the girls at her office . . . they were always complaining about the coffee curdling and they were one of the many who put the dry instant coffee cream in first. Mrs. Frnley You know I'll have lo "fess" up! I was a doubting Thomas — just couldn't believe it would make a difference. But, I tried it once, thought my eyes wero deceiving me, FRAMING <"!•! ili.

Why did they have to see me like this? Why did I have to look at Mom's eyes when she faced the most terrible ordeal of her life? Dad suddenly looked like an old man. He told the man in charge, "Yes — he is our son." The funeral was a weird experience. I saw all my relatives and friends walk toward the casket. They passed by, one by one, and looked at me with the saddest eyes I've ever seen. Some of my buddies were crying. A few of the girls touched rhy hand and sobbed as they walked away. Please — somebody — wake me up! Get me out of here.

DOWN By JIM ELLIOTT With school starting again it is appropriate to recall the old practice which most of us adults remember of having spelling m a t< jfches during the 1 school term. | This was a I practice handled down from the old country school house days and many Jim Elliott older folks hold the opinion that our schools turned out better spellers in those days. Not only did the schools hold spelling matches within the school, but there were matches with other neighboring schools in which the entire community sometimes took part. The school chill ren would compete against children of their own grade in the other school and then there would be a contest between the adults of the two communities. Sometimes there would be prizes given for the individuals and the school which won! The old fashioned art of spelling shouldn't be neglected in an age of written communication. Who wants a stenographer who is unable to spell? What paper wants a reporter who is not able to spell? A teacher of all people should be able to spell. Who wants a clerk who is unable to spell? As a matter of fact, who wants an executive who is unable, to spell? One advantage of the old- fashioned spell-downs is the competitive spirit that It engendered. Somehow, knowing how to spell became more important if we could test our ability against the others of our class or against those from other schools, guar Next Monday this column will be conducted by Bill Elliott of The Elliott Mortuary.
