A week ago Saturday, prodded by his wife, Gene thought over ways and means of getting the leaves raked without finding himself at the business end of a rake. The Hood's daughter, Mary Jean, happened along, and Gent* began persuading her that rakintj the lawn was a fine, healthy, nut- door bit of fun. Mary Jean, savvy to her father'.-; strategy, replied that it seemed like an awful big yard and an awful lot of work. "Why don't you get some of your friends to help you." said Gene. That was his downfall. Mary Jean took him at his word, and invited her whole class to get in on the act. Twenty eight of the 30 members of thi> Academy 7th grade respondecf. and are pictured here at their "leaf raking party." By the time Gene got through 90 hot dogs and six or seven cases of pop, complete with mus* tard and relish and other similar satisfiers for hungry, leaf-raking appetites, he had just about as big a wqrkout as if he had raked the leaves himself. still with him. but his father who is band instructor in the Swea City school, returned Monday to his teaching duties.
