Upper Dei Moines Thursday, May 26, 1955 The halls of learning are closing for the summer vacation. This is no ^iews to the small-fry for they've been counting how many days there arc loft in school for quite some time. It's not that they are allergic to education, it's just that the-nine, months-of the school term is. an, awfully long time in the life of'a youngster and they ate eager to haVe all week long to do as.they please. vacation with mixed feelings. We'll hitve the youngsters at home nil day now, you know and if we hit a spell of rainy wcath'er this can bo very hectic. Still there's lots to be said for not having to rush around in the morning ootting the kids off to school and getting that favorite dress ironed so Sister can wear it the next day will not be quite sp urgent.

Soon Robin was opening his mouth every time anyone ap-' proached his box. All might still: be going well if it hadn't been decided that the bird would benefit: by some fresh air and sunshine. They took it out in the back yard and a mean old blackbird swooped down and carried it off. One of the youngsters chased the intruder and yelled at it until he dropped his Victim, but it was too late. Robin was dead. His grave is marked with a boy- made cross and there were plenty cf mourners at the funeral. » * * Did you ever wonder what a mail -man does on his day off? Well, Hank Guderian, who delivers the bills and advertisements to our 'house doesn't go for a walk but he tells me he likes to get out of doors in his spare time so most every Thursday these days he goes .fishing. His wife, Ruth, goes along 'for she is ftilly as fond- of the sport as Hank is. Sometimes she even out-fishes him and what's more she always cleans the catch for both of them. Ruth likes to do the job right where she catches them. She takes along a knife and newspapers especially for the purpose and on the way home they drop off the refuse at the city dump. She's real speedy with her fish cleaning. Hank said he timed her once and fdund she cleaned something like 72 bullheads in 32 minutes! » ,* * Irma Crawford and I were delegated to fix black-out coverings for the basement windows at our church today so that it would be good and dark for Mrs AtwaterMat,, _. v , r thej guest speaker, to show/ herj slides.-It sounded like a< simple.' operation but it got-quite corp-» plicated. First we had to enlist of our pastor, M. H. BroWer to go over and measure windows and.then we had Donnie Smith lining up .and cutting cardboard. Irma didn't have her car and I can't drive so we drafted Mid Waller for chauffeur service. Young Jack Waller went along for the ride and what pop he could scrounge by stopping at his Dad's office. • It fook us most of the morning to fit and tape cardboard, we measured and stretched and several times climbed to shaky places at the risk of our necks. We also had several phrases in the back of our minds that would have been highly out of place in the church, had we voiced them. We completed the job and it was kind of patchy in spots and there wore several places we couldn't reach to black out. Just as we were getting into the car to drive away, Mid came up with a suggestion that was absolutely bnl-- liant in its simplicity. "Why," she said, "didn't we work -from the outside of the windows? We could h a v e thumbtacked cardboard, brown paper or even newspapers to the frames and we could have done it in five minutes." The idea was absolutely workable but several hours too late. Every basement window of the church is easily reached by standing right on the ground! All future committees taced with a similar problem, please profit by the hindsight of our experience. « » » »> Who made the hot potato salad at the Fireman's family picnic?
