One evening my son, Michael, came into my study and asked a very simple question. "Suppose you were out hunting and ft lion ran towards you, what would you do?" "Shoot the lion," I replied, knowing I was thousands of miles away from the king of animals. "Suppose you didn't have a rifle?" snapped back my son. "Then I would use my revolver," was the reply. "Suppose your revolver didn't have any bullets," insisted my ion. "What would you do?" "I would take oat my knife and plunge it into the lion's heart." "But suppose you'didn't have a knife, in fact nothing but your two hands, what would you do, daddy?" insisted my son. "With my two hands I would strangle that lion to death," That satisfied my son who left the room. However, he reappeared a minute later and complimented me. "Gee, daddy, you are a brave man." But there happens to have been a much braver man than myself who lived during the last century in the Rocky Mountains. He was well known as a brave and skillful hunter. One day he saw a bear grab hold of a young boy companion. Ha raised his rifle and fired. The enraged animal held the boy tighter in his grasp. "Help! Help!" shouted the boy. The name of this brave hunter was Armador Sanchez. He had two pistols and ran close to the bear and fired into the animal. But still the bear wouldn't let go of the boy. So Armador San- Things to Do]—Try This WISCONSIN, in the United States, is a state that is famous lor. its cheese. And Switzerland. in Europe, is also famous for its cheese. There used to be a riddle about Swiss cheese. Which is the correct way of making Swiss cheese? Do they make the cheese first and put in a variety of holes afterward? Or do they start with the holes and build the cheese around them? How would you like to make cheese? It • is very simple and you can have a lot of fun doing it. In addition, you can eat your own homemade product. Invite one of your friends to join you in the making of cheese. You start with a quart bottle of non-homogenized milk. Let the cream come to the top of the milk- Then skim the cream off the milk. You can use this cream for your cereal. Or mother and dad can use the cream .with their coffee. Let the milk stand in a warm- place for several days. The milk will turn sour and it will separate into curds and whey. Pour the curds and whey into a clean cloth bag. Close the mouth of the bag with a string. Then hang the bag over a pan. Let all the whey drip off into the pan. Then rinse the cheese with cold water. Press the bag of cheese between two bricks to get all the water out. When you do this, you can put one brick in the pan, so that all the water goes into the pan. Now your cheese is ready to eat. You can spread it upon chez took his knife from his sheath and wound his blanket around his left hand to protect himself. Then he rushed in at the animal and stabbed him. .The bear now released the boy and turned his attention to the man who bad dared to shoot and j stab him. The bear would raise his huge paw and strike the hunter. In turn, Armador Sanchez would try to plunge his knife deeper into the bear. Finally, weak from the loss of blood, Armador Sanchez fainted. At the same time, the bear, also weak from his many wounds, fell to the ground. The boy had watched this terrible fight of a brave man to save him. He looked at the still figure on the ground and ran to a neighboring fort. He told the story and a rescue party started out at once. They found the brave hunter was still alive but in a most pitiful condition. And next to him was the bear—dead! -They carried back the hero to the fort and took good care of him. It took some time for Armador Sanchez to recover. And when he did, I am certain the bears avoided him. Before Beginning Swimming Lessons Puzzle Pete's Parade; Test Your Ability Variety wit work: CROSSWORD MISS HAP NOTHING OH Me/ Hobby Corner—Learning About Trees Is Good Fun BY E. J. ANDERSON TTOW many trees do you fellows know? Many woodsmen can walk through a glen and name all the trees, tell what they're used for, and perhaps tell the legend of their names or their history. That's pretty specialized, but there is something you can do to broaden your knowledge of trees in your area. Make a panel of wood sections Identifying trees. It's easy and it will win the admiration of your school, church and Scout leaders. Collect small healthy limbs of trees you know, three to four inches in diameter and six inches in length. Split these pieces lengthwise and polish the fiat surface of one of the halves with a plane or a knife. Now fasten the pieces to a prepared display board, one half bark-side out, the other with the polished side out, and label them. The fun comes when you increase your collection and get wood from trees you've never seen before. When you go to a different community or on your summer vacation, you can be on the lookout for new trees and your collection will grow by leaps and bounds. To properly mount your display, use a large piece of plywood, sand it smooth and cover with a coat of clear varnish. Round and smooth the corners neatly. Nail through from the back to attach the wood pieces. The labels for the wood sections should have the complete name of the tree: Jack Pine, Pin Oak, Red Oak, or whatever. As a further refinement, you can cut cross sections of the limbs, sand them down and show the growth rings. By now your collection has taken on a scientific aspect, and you will further that by adding a leaf from each tree and the scientific name. To keep the leaf green, dry it in a uook, then cover with a coat of clear varnish. You may want to divide your collection into sections representing the different types of trees. Separate the hardwood from the softwood, and fruit trees from commercial wood trees. If you have any questions, your local library will probably be able to supply books that will answer them, and a dictionary will be a big help. Let's Hove a Porty|-Travel but Stay Right Home BY IDA M. PARDUE lyHERE'S no time like summertime for a party. Try some of these vacation games. GOING PLACES: You can get somewhere on each line below if you'll add the right kind of transportation. Check your score with the answers below—but don't peek. 1. Isbad, New Mexico ark 2. Colum , Ohio Sante Fe 3 Hart , Connecticut car 4. , New Mexico van 5. adelphia, Arkansas bus 6 sa nah, Georgia Nash 7. ville, Tenn. Austin g. .Texas Ford GOING PLACES: 1—Carlsbad. 2—Columbus. 3—Hartford. 4— Santa Fe. 5—Arkadelphia. 6— Savannah. 7—Nashville. 8—Austin. .ALPHABETICAL TRIP: Play this like a spelling bee. The two teams form two lines, facing each other. One player starts by saying, "I'm going to (adding the name of any place starting with the letter A—Alabama, for instance)." The player on the opposite team takes the letter B, and so on through the alphabet, alternating teams. A player who cannot give a place-name, or makes a mistake, or repeats, drops out of the game. When all of one team have dropped out, the other team wins. ROLLING HOME: Players sit on the floor in a circle for this game. In the center place one square of newspaper. This is "home." One player starts by rolling a ball (from a sitting position) at the paper. The idea is to make the ball "roll home"— stop on the paper. Lucky rollers leave the circle. Poor shots stay seated and the ball travels around the circle to the right, with everyone taking a turn until there is just one player left. This player should pay a forfeit. Punch Parties Swell that club treasury with a round of Punch Parties. Here's how it works: Members take turn« entertain- ing four other members at home with punch, Coolade or pop, and cookies. The hostess furnishes the refreshments — and each member brings ten cents, which goes to the club. Entertainment is up to the hostess. She could decide on canasta or another game, sewing, or just an old-fashioned gabfest A dandy idea is to have each girl, in turn, tell her most embarrassing experience—or perhaps the most exciting, or funniest. If at least two members give a Punch Party each week, the treasury will bt enriched by $3.20 each month.

HOMONYM Missing words in Puzzle Pete's sentence sound alike, but they are spelled differently. Can you finish the sentence? The explorers hoped they wou ld - some wild *am« to replenish their fresh - supply. TRIANGLE Puzzle Pete has based his word triangle on BURDENS. The second word is an abbreviation for "bushel"; third "blemish"; fourth "a string"; fifth "watered"; and sixth "empty." Finish the triangle: B U R r> BURDENS Pear'i Not a Pear An alligator pear is not a pear at all and it has nothing to do with alligators. We usually call it by its Spanish name, an "avocado." Really Asparagus Asparagus fern, that soft green stuff the florists put into bouquets, is not \ fern at all. It is, however, a special, feathery kind of «ultivat«d Jump one letter in the word HINT to make the opposite of "thick" (THIN). The other letters are kept in the same order as before. Do this for the pairs of words defined below. Get the first word from the definition given. Then move one letter to a different position, so as to make the second meaning. These are all four- letter words. If you get stuck, try to work backwards by getting the second definition first. 1. Change the action of the wind to a container for food. 2. Change a chair or bench to a point of the compass. 3. Change the loud sound of a bell to a word meaning "wan." 4. Change a measure of land to a contest of speed. 5. Change a word meaning "to exchange" to a stinging insect. 6. Change a cock, hen or chicken to the movement of a stream. 7. Change a word meaning "stingy" to the end of a prayer. 8. Change a word meaning "one time" to the fruit of a pine tree. 9. Change anything not phony to a British title. 10. Change the movable opening to a room or building to a scent. 11. Change a word meaning "to seize rudely" to a word for clothing. 12. Change a fibber to the den of a wild beast. 13. Change a high jump to a request. 14.

Everyone should know how to swim, for health, for pleasure and for safety. If you are a beginner, the first important step is to overcome any fear of the water. Should you already be a swimmer, maybe you have a little brother or sister that you want to teach. Start in water knee-deep. Play a ring - around - the - rosy with words like these: '"Everyone who likes spinach—dip!" "Everyone who likes candy—dip!" An alligator crawl is fun, too. Walk on your hands, your both feet swinging out behind you like a tafl. Have an alligator game of tag. After a proper amount of water-play, try bobbing Tinder water in rotation, nose held, eye* shut Inhale through the mouth, duck and see who can make th« biggest bubbles by exhaling through the nose. Who can open the eyes under water first? Th« instructor holds out two fingen, three, four. Who can count them, come up and count again? Tos* bright pebbles and see who caa find them, eyes open wide. Time for a somersault now. Sit down in the water, knees to th* chest, arms around the knee* Rock gently until you go over. All these are good get-ac* quainted-with-water games before you take those first all-important lessons in swimming. -AV.OIS— Answers to Puzzles ANSWERS: CROSSWORD: WORD CHAIN: RASH, rase, rate, sate, SAFE.
