First of all Manager Miller and myself counted the number of corn kernels which would fill a cup and we found that number to be 700. Then Wm. Madsen.

She wore a dtfk blue dress with a white collar. Sh« had Ort he* new black shoes. Her cocker spaniel whb«e name is "Scott," sat on the front porch and whined his canine belief in the folly of education as she waved "goodbye" and started off to the halls of learning. Last night we talked about school. She told me about the girl who sits in front of her . . . the girl with the yellow curls . . . and the boy across the aisle who makes funny faces. She told me about her teacher, who has eyes in the back of her head . . . and about the trees in the school yard . . . and about the big girl who doesn't believe in Santa Glaus. We talked about a lot of things — tremendously vital, unimportant things—and then we studied spelling, reading and arithmetic and then to bed. "She's upstairs now . . . sound asleep, with "Pricess Elizabeth" (that's her doll) cuddled in her right arm. You guys wouldn't hurt her, would you? You see, I'm her Daddy. When her doll is broken or her finger is cut, or her head gets bumped. I can fix it ... but when the starts lo school, when she walks across the street, then she's in your hands. She's a swoet little girl and I'm so proud of hsr. She can run like a deer and darts about like a chipmunk. She likes to ride and swim and hike wilh me on Sunday afternoons. Bul I can't be with her all the time ... I have to work to pay for her clothes and education. So please help me look out for her. Please drive carefully, please drive slowly past the schools end intersections . . . and please remember that children do run from behind parked cars.
