IIy now there nre wevonil children nnil n tribe of •^arrivori In developing IM lite ruinM of civillrniion, XVI TN the Year 11, Molly and Jean '•^ bore children, but Molly's died at birth. This was a great disap- 1 pointment, because it was the first one they had lost at childbirth. When it came to naming the year, however, there was a dispute between old and young. The older ones thought it should be called the Year when Princess Died. By now there were dozens of dogs around. Nearly all of them must be children or grandchildren :or great-grandchildren of Princess. But to the children Princess had 'been an old and not very interest- 'ing dog of uncertain temper. They is.nid that this should be the Year of the Wood-Carving, and after ja momentary hesitation Ish supported them, even though Princess 'had meant more to him than to i anyone | He thought of the wood-carving, jit had swept over them as a kind i of fad or craze, like bubble-hlow- ,ing or mah-jongg 'in the Old Times. Suddenly all the children |were raiding lumber yards for ''good boards of soft sugar-pine, and 1 .were trying to carve running de; signs of figures of cattle or dogs or people. They worked awkwardly 'at first, but soon some of them grew skillful. The Year 16 was remarkable be- the flrst marriage actually 1 look place. Those married were I Mary, who was Ish's and Em's 'oldest daughter, and Ralph, who '.had been born to Molly just before (the Great Disaster. They were ( younger than would have been 'thought snitnble for marriage In 'the Old Days, but in this also ! standards had changed. Ish and Em, when they discussed the matter privately, were not even sure that Mary was especially fond of Ralph, or Ralph of Mary. But everyone had always assumed that .the two of them would get married because there was nobody else available whom either of them could take. Maurine and Molly and Jean were all for "a real wedding," as they said. They hunted up a Lohengrin record for the wind-up phonograph,, and were making a wedding costume in white with a veil, and everything to go .with it. But, to Ish, all this seemed a horrible parody of things that had once been; Em, in her quiet way, supported him. Since Mary was their daughter, ,they controlled the wedding. In the end, they had no ceremony at all, except that Ralph and Mary stood before Ezra, and he told them that now they were being married and that they would assume a new responsibility to the community and that they must try to fulfill it well. * • » HE year 17 they called, mostly at the children's prompting, the Year the House Busted. The •eason was that one of the nearby houses had suddenly collapsed and crashed down with a great noise just in time for some of the children to see it as they came running out at the first crack. On Investigation, the matter proved simple enough, because termites had had a chance now to work in the house for 17 'years undisturbed, and had eaten through the underpinning. In the Year 18, Jean bore still another child. This was the List of all that were born to the older generation. . , This was called the Year of the Schoolteaching. . , . Ever since the first children had been old enough, Ish had tried, in a more or less desultory way, to give them some kind of teaching, so that they could at least read and write and do a little arithmetic, and know something of geography. But it had always been difficult to get the children together, and there seemed to be so many things that they wanted to do, either in play or in earnest, and the schoolteach- ing had never, accomplished very much, although most of the older children could read after a fashion. At least they had once been able to read, but Ish doubted whether, some of them—such as Mary, who was now a mother with two babies —could at the present moment do more than spelJ out words of one syllable. . In this Year 18, Ish really tried to get together all-of the children who were of proper age, so that they would not grow up completely ignorant. It worked for a while, and then again it lapsed, and it was hard to say whether he had accomplished anything or not, and he felt a sense of frustration. "THE .Year 21 Ish had thought they might call the Year of the Coming Age. They now numbered 36—seven of the older ones. Evie, 21 of the second generation, and seven of the third. , In the end, however, this year was, named, like many others, irom a small incident. Joey and Josey were twins, who were the youngest of the children born to [sh and Em. Joey was a bright boy, though small for his age and not so good at play as some of those who were even younger than he. fie got a certain favoring from both his father and mother, because he was, with his twin, the youngest. On the whole, however, in such a large group of children, nobody had paid him any great attention, and now he was 9 yean old. But Just at the end of this year, they suddenly discovered to [heir great amazement that Joey could read—not only could read In the slow, halting way of the other children, but could read quickly and accurately and with plcSsure. Ish felt a sudden warming of, his heart toward the youngest son. The other children also were much impressed, and so at the ceremony they cried out that this should he called the Year When Joey Head.
