After three months of school, I passed the final test and was ready to meet my new charge. Was I excited? It's a pretty Important thing in a dog's life when he ia given over to the person with whom he la to spend the rest of his life. I thought about that a good deal. What kind of a master would he be?

I understood about the differences in our heights pretty soon, and we didn't get Frank bruised very often after that. Next I learned the words "For . ward,- "Right," "Left" and what they meant These commands came ia rery bandy when we were out on the street end Frank wanted to go to some certain part of the city.

Naturally. I worked for that too. But moat of all, as the other kids In my class used to say, It was interesting and not exactly work after all. We wanted a master or a mistress who would reward us for our care of them with the greatest reward any dog can have . . . affection and trust. Sometimes Frank would give Thia ia the story of a Seeing-Ei'e dog, one of the noblest animals of aU the xforld, whose intelligence and kindliness vine for them the responsible position of being the eyes of the blind.

I tried my best to make the1 right impression on my trainer. You see, there were traditions in our family that I wanted to live up to. Mother told me we had an uncle who made a great name for himself as a state police patrol dog on the Swiss national border. He waa In the service of the Customs. THERE was an uncle to be proud of I The young man who waa my trainer had studied long and hard to be able to undertake this work, so I wanted to work hard, too.

Another is It was worth transcribing. He pictures one of those spots of the West that lure the Rolling Wheels. MANY YEARS BACK it was he who took me into Idaho's Sawtooth Mountains, and along the calm waters of the Puget Sound. We've wandered through the pines of Oregon, where stillness relgns.and watched the sunrises over the Sierras and Colorado's Rockies sometimes felt the friendly winter warmth of Western- deserts on winter days. It was from him I caught the wanderlust, and from his wife my mother that I learned how to look for the beauty in nature. IT'S WORTH LOOKING for, incidentally. In this age of business we scurry along without even seeing the sunsets and sunrises. That mildly insane man who stops to take a picture draws curious glances. And an artist . . .! Did you ever see the surprised 'crowd that looks over his or her shoulder and wonders "how one gets that way ?" THERE'S ONE WAY to be certain of catching this brand of insanity. It's to forget business for a time, put the humming wheels beneath one, and hie off to the far places where telephones and alarm clocks are unfamiliar. I envy Claudia Cranston, wan FROM down the San Joaquin comes a letter. "I have Just read 'Wheels'." it says, "and I am seeing ... the terraced walls of Old Taos with long ladder poles against the blue sky like lances behind battlemented ancient forts, and wisps of smoke trailing lazily against coral clouds ... I hear the throb of drums at the evening hour as the sun glints for a last brief moment against the rampart of mountains and slips into the bosom of night ,' CENTURIES OLD rock stairways lead to the bare rap of Walpi, where stands the ancient Hopl village apart from our world of noise and strife, within a world of silence and age end peace, a place where miles are meaningless and time unknown, where an eternal 'now' becomes embraced in one changeless enfoldment with the past and present and ages yet to come . . . and all this within a few hours of trans-Paciflo ships, within echo range of the roaring of railway wheels, beneath the shadow of t'ans-continental planes. I, TOO, HEAR the hum of wheels . . . and then silence ... and vastness . . . and timelessness. I hear the soft tread of moccasined feet along timeless trails into a timeless lif e . . . and I wonder about the meaning of our cluttered life!" DAVID C. PETERS wrote those words. He's a silvery-haired gentleman with 30 -odd i years of experience in the pulpit behind him. I like to tell him he's . "reformed,' for now he's in the lumber business. He's rambled to most places that are worth the rambling in this world of ours; he's done more things than most of us have done.
