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 w p u l.d say 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, "For goodness.sake, Florabelle, go and play on the sand before the landlord 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 eozy 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 ..s-h.in.ing side. Sure enough! There was a tiny golden crown on her head. A week later the important people really did come to see her. Florabell* 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. Everyone 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 spell. .

This month has a special meaning for g r o w n - ups and children all over the world. Oct. 24 is United Nations Day. This year is the 15th anniversary of the U.N. The meaning of the United Nations Organization can be learned from the symbol which appears on its flag. All the continents .of the world are shown from the North Pole. The world is surrounded by olive branches—the symbol of peace. The U.N. works for peace in many .ways: by sending soldiers to prevent war, by. bringing food and medicine to people around the world, and by settling arguments over tables instead of battlefields. It works for peace mostly by showing .people everywhere that they can help each other. Glass of Milk Can Be Tastiest Thing on Earth If you could have anything y.ou wanted in the whola world, what would you ask for? Whatever it is, it probably wouldn't be a glass of milk. But do you know thai a glass of milk could be a dream come true lor millions of youngsters today? And thanks to the United Nations their wish is being granted. Through a plan U.N. International Happy with their new "beauty murks," two Mttle girls from India show off their tuberculoris test spots. They are among no million children to be tested and vaccinated in that country by the U.N. Children's Fund. Meat-Eating Flowers Can Be Deadly Most plants get their food through their roots, but some catch insects and "eat" them! 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 edge* of the leaf curl ';p tight 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 long, 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 i* absorbed br the plant. Some of these pitcher plants are large enough to catch mice. roam HAPPENINGS IN SCIENCE Mighty Rig Dips Far Below the Water to Search for Oil HC TEMPLATE l£rTlUKACEWHEN B*KSH MOVES TO NSVf SfOT.

Helping kids around the world is old stuff for UNIC,EF. In addition to dishing out tons of milk each day, doctors and nurses see feat children stay free from disease. In India alone, they are testing 170 .million children for tuberculosis. If they are found to have the disease they are treated. In Africa, a terrible disease called yaws brings blindness to millions. Thanks to the U.N. the sickness is cau?ht earlr in children and treated. In Mexico, UNICEF sends carpentry tools to young boys so that they can learn to make a living and build up their country. United Nations Week this year is Oct. 23 to 29—a time to remember the millions of children to whom a glass of milk means so much.
