"They are expecting to iiave school again." He went downstairs to meet with them. They were all then oil except Joey, and two younger ones. He looked into their face? us they sat on chairs wriggling, or squatted more comfortably on the floor. They were looking back him, he imagined, with more alertness than usual. Joey was gone and they must be wondering how this would affect school. Vet the change, he knew, must be only temporary, and behind ihis alertness must lurk still that basic lack of interest against which he had already struggled. He let his glance run over the little group, pausing individually upon each face. They Were fine children, not stupid, but they lacked the flair. No, there was not one! He made his decision, and he felt no pain in it. "School is dismissed!" he repealed, feeling that he was being dramatic about it in spite of himself. "T here will be no more school—ever!" Two blocks up the street there had once been a large and showy garden. There he found a lemon - tree. Ish pressed his way into the tangle, found a suitable shoot, and took, out his pocket knife. The shoot at its base was nearly as big 01 his thumb. The dead lemon wood was almost as hard as bone, but after a while he whittled it through with his knife and pulled it out from the tangle. The shoot was seven feet long, straight (or four feet. "Yes," he thought a little bitterly, "it will oe Rood enough tor ifdi. my needs," He carried the lemon shoot back to the house, and sat on the porch in the sun, whittling. Walt and Josey had been oft playing with the other children, but at lunch-lime they came back "What are you doing?" Josey asked him. "I'm getting ready to play a game," Ish answered her. He would not make the mistake, he had decided, of trying to tie 'this up with anything practical, as he had with the school. * • . TJY the end of the afternoon his hand was beginning to blister where he held the "knife, but he judged that the work was done. The next morning he continued the work. There was plenty of stout string availjble, and he considered taking some nylon fish line and braiding it into the proper size. ''No," he thought, "I'll work from things they can always get for themselves." He looked at the bow, and knew that creative force had again returned to the world. He could have gone to any. sporting-goods store, and picked out a much better bow—a six-foot toy for archery. But he had not done so. He lad made himself a bow from the wood itself carved with the simplest of implements, and a string from the hide of a new-killed calf. He plucked at the thong. It scarcely twanged, but it gave forth satisfactory dull throbbing vi- aration. He considered that his work for the day was finished. The next day, for ant-arrow, he cut himself a straight branch of a pine tree. When he had finished t, he called for the children. Walt and Josey came, and Weslon with :hem. "Let's ES» how she works," Ish said. He drew the arrow back, and oosed it. UntcRlhercd, it (lew) with a wobbly flight, but be bad) pointed it gt a high angle, and it covered 50 feet before it struck, by chance, pointing upward from the ground. Instantly he knew that he had won success. The three children had never seen anything like this before, and they stood wide-eyed for a moment. Then with shouts they broke into a run, and went to retrieve the arrow. Ish shot it for them, again and again. "Let me try it, Daddy," said Walt. Walt's first shot wobbled a bare 20 feet, but he was pleased. Then Josey tried it, and then Weston. Before dinner time, every child in The Tribe was busy at work whittling on a bow of his own. * • » J3ULES had to oe established. "You mustn't shoot in the direction of anyone." "You mustn't shoot close to the houses. 1 " Competition developed. Having learned the trick from the older boys who shot from rifles, children began to hold contests against a mark. They experimented with different lengths and types of bows. When Josey complained that Wail always beat her at shooting, Ish subtly made the suggestion that she might try fixing some quail pinions to the butt-end of her arrow. She did., so. and beat Walt, and then suddenly all the arrows had quail pinions at one end, and they werg flying farther and truer. Then one day toward evening Ish heard the sound of excited boys' feet running up the steps outside. Walt and Weston burst 'nto the room. "Look, Daddy," Walt cried, and ie held up for Ish the pathetic ooking body of a big rabbit >ierced through the side with a leadless wooden arrow. "Look!" Walt cried again. "1 hid ichind a bush, and waited till he lopped up close to me, and then I shot him right through." .Ish, as he looked, felt a sympa- hy and pity for the poor dangling »dy, even though he knew that t was a symbol of his own tti- umph. Too bad, he thought, that even creation must make use of death also. Television— Tonite, Tomorrow WMCT, Memphis.
