A Freezing Orange Tree A freezing orange tree is a new experience in Florida. It protects the trees during bad weather. They have to be careful because the branches might break off and so they will die. They would have to plant them all over again. When it is a very cold day they spray the trees. The ice can be too heavy. The ice Is a coat for the tree and now the tree will not die. --Craig If I had some shoe that would float. I would put an engine on both of them and zoom across the Pacific Ocean, Atlantic Ocean, Indian Ocean, and the Arctic Ocean and visit lands that are not even heard of. I would make friends with all the fish in the four oceans and get the biggest diamonds that you ever saw. I would be a Jacque Costeau the second or third. I don't know which, one, but I would learn all about the under sea world. The end. —Kevin My First Picture Telephone Call skates if we worked as much as we could. We live across from the •fire station. There was a ringing sound from the fire station. The fire engines came roaring out. THERE WAS A FIRE! We followed the fire trucks as long as we could. When we were coming back home. Rodney went past a car and CRASH. Rodney lay motionless on the street. I was glad I still had the speedy skates. I put them on and moved Rodney's smashed up bike. Then I picked up Rodney and hurried to the hospital. About three months later Rodney was in a wheelchair with a couple of broken bones. We told the story to a lot of people and they • believed it. And all Rodney could day was "You saved my life, Deane. Thanks a lot." What a happy year! The next year was almost the same, except Itwas another boy who fell off his motorcycle. Rodney was the one who saved him. The next year was a bad one. Our house caught on fire. We had to get out fast. We forgot to take the speedy skates out, they burned but still It was fun to watch our new house go up. Now we have another pair of skates. They are just as much fun. --Deane On Monday morning I made my very first picture telephone call. My mother and father had just got enough money for one. It took them three months to get $275. Thats how much they cost. I'm going to call my friends and ask them if they can come to my birthday party. First I'll call Cheryl. "Cheryl can you come to my birthday party tomorrow?" We just got $275 for a' picture telephone. I'll see you again at 3:30 tomorrow. Now I'll call Jo Ann, Patricia, Betsy and Kristy. That will be six girls coming to the party, Including me. Four more girls to talk to and see! The Big Water Shoes Farewell party for Donna Schlesser Miss Karen Koehn, daughter of Dr. and Mrs..

I was going to have my party at the lakes. When It came to the time to open my presents, oh boy, what a surprise. I grabbed my water shoes before I even got my swimming suit, took off to the lake, jumped Into the water, and walked a little ways. Then I got brave and started to run. Boy did I go!!UntilBLOP down on. the water I went, so I was stuck in the middle of the lake. I couldn't swim, but I could dog paddle a little.

An on Wednesday I put them on. I roller skated down the street very fast. The people all wanted to try them. So I let them ride them. Then a little boy named Billy wanted to try them but the roller skates were too big, and he started to walk away very sadly. So then I shouted, "Hey Billy, come back here. I will give you some skates that I invented but they where to small for me," So he ran back and I went into the garage and I took them out and I let him ride them and keep them. He was so happy that he ran to his house, and showed his mother and father. After that they came out and thanked me. Then they asked me "How did you do It?" But I said, "It was just an invention.

When we got home our mother said that we could keep the The Speedy Skates Once I was going to make something out of my skates. And I used a rod and I bent it. Then I got a minibike motor and I hitched the rod to the motor and put the rod in the skates. I found out that I made Speedy Skates. I told my family and my friends to come to the tool shop. They said, "What is it?" I said, "I call it The speedy skates. Then I tried'it out and it worked fine. The other day I went to school with them. --Todd My Shoes My Funny Feet One day I found these funny shoes. When I asked Mother she said that, that was a new invention. "These shoes a man invented," said Mother. They can stay up on water. "Why don't you go down to the lake and try them out" said Mother. "OK," said Tim. Then he did. When he came back he cried, "Mother! Mother! It works!" I told you it would. That man invented the telephone. --Jane A Funny Day One day I decided to buy some roller skates that had a motor. When I got back I put them on and down the road I skated. I skated down main street. All at too soon the road ended and there was a store right in front of me. Then all of a sudden my engine ran out of gas and I stopped. Just in time! Then I got off and went home. —Mike Picture Phones I'd like to have a phone that I could see who I'm talking too.
