She lived with her father, mother, and seven brothers and sisters On a large shaggy dog. She had-a nice, warm home, and plenty to eat. She had her brothers and sisters to play with, but Florabelle wanted more than that. She wanted to be a dancer, a very famous dancer, on a stage with an audience. ; So all day she practiced flying leaps and spins until her. mother would sax," crossly, '-•Florabelle, be still! The landlord will make us move.- Be quiet. I hear his foot moving closer." One day when she had been dancing very hard, her mother said, : 'Tor. goodness sake, Florabelle, go and-play on the sand before th'eJandlbrd throws you out." . So Florabelle went outside and hopped in.,the sand. Close by was a bright red cloth lying, on the sand so she hopped on it. It was so soft and cozy that she fell sound asleep. The next thing she remembered was. being'wrapped up in the cloth and she couldn't get out. She wondered what was going to happen to her. After a - long 'time the cloth was shaken.hard and Florabelle fell out and onto a large white circle. . . .-"Look!" a man said. "A lovely'.-flea,; Just "the one for our ballet dance in the flea circus." That night a. big light was turned on the large-white circle and many people came to see Florabelle dance: They clapped their hands.and Florabelle was so happy 'she could ' hardly breathe. Florabelle was sure she .was dreaming until the man picked her. up. carefully by the wire and'put something on her head. As soon as he put her down again she hopped.over, to the little., silver coach and looked in the -shining side. Sure enough!.There was a tiny golden crown on her head. A. week later the important people really did come to see her. Florabelle was sure one was a Queen for she was so beautiful. _ Florabelle's practicing had -made her perfect for she danced as she had never danced before. E v'e r y o n e clapped their hands and cried, "What a marvelous dancer!" So Florabelle's dream came true.. She had become very famous indeed. —Ramoncita Sayer O'Connor Brain Teaser "OU" PUZZLER The.purpose of this game is to ' tell, ' What each "ou" word should spell. • — — OU — is milled from 'wheat, — OU'— is the'opposite of sweet.

The Butterwort grows in damp places, near brooks or in marshes. •• It has -soft, broad leaves which are covered with a sticky substance that attracts insects. When an Insect touches a leaf, the edges of the leaf curl up tiRht and crush the insect. The plant then dissolves the insect. The Pitcher Plant receives its name from the fact' that its leaves, resemble pitchers. Rain water and juice from the:plant collect in the.pitchers. On the inside of each leaf are Ion;, bristly hairs that point downward. : When an insect falls into the pitcher, the barrier of hairs prevent him from climbing out and he drowns. His body is absorbed by the plant. Some of these pitcher plants are large enough to catch mice.

To start this project, deciilt on a simple subject to be carved. A Urre animal, or flower, with smooth flat outlines and not too many detail! works out best. . Mark the outline-of the/uncut cake of paraffin on a sheet of paper and sketch, or traca your subject in this outline. Cut .out the sketched- figure. Mid- place It in position on the;caka of paraffin. With a pin "or needle, scratch its outline. Using a paring knife, '*havt off very small portions of th« paraffin, gradually working in to the scratched outline of your subject. • , • I. When the figure has been carved out, smooth any rough edges with your fingers and cut in the necessary details on th« figure itself. For extra smoothness, slightly heat a knife xnd draw its flat side over all edffe* of the statuette. To make the carving durable, give it one or two coats, of white shellac and glue it to a small wooden base. ••••• . Try paraffin sculpturing.. Itfi lots of fun whether you're a fumble-fingered dud or an artistic genius. —Erma Reynolds TO SCULPTURE: 1H PAEAFPIH P1E4T PRAW TH£ PIQUKE OKI A PIECE- OF- K4P&K- CUT OUT AUP TEACE- THE OUTL1ME OW "WEr WAX- WAV WITH A PAEIWQ AMP MOLIWT-OM A WX>D6»4 ACROSS 1 F^.^Jort is -' , f Kentucky's , 7 Fruit drink 8 Malt drink 9 Residence (ab,) 10 Land parcel 11 Dinner courses "j DOWN 1 Solicitude 2 Arabian gulf ' ^ .3 Muisance 4 Story 5 Century plant 6 Permits BACKWARD CITIES If :you .have trouble : figuring out these communities in Kentucky, try reading them -backward: ' ' ttpttxnictmn a vlali n in port-«ntlMt«(ixcwt.ty wrmui/on ot News'paptr [ntorprlsi AssKhtbn—PiMnt In'US.*.
