-Junior Editors Quiz on SWEETIE PIE By Nadine Seltzer OUT OUR WAY BY J. R. WILLIAMS QUESTION: Are there really such things as leprechauns? ANSWER: A leprechaun is an impish Irish fairy, similar to the gnomes and pixies of other lands. The leprechauns make shoes for other kinds of fairies who live in Ireland. These cranky little men are supposed to hoard their money, so that each one has a pot of gold. They say that if you sec a leprechaun and grab him quickly, he will give you the pot of gold in order to be set free. But is this really true, No. Fairy stories and legends, although •hey have some truth in them, are made up mostly from the imagination of story tellers and writers. We all realize this as we grow up. But even if these tales are not strictly true, this need not spoil our enjoyment of the wonderful world of make-believe. FOR YOU TO DO: Write a story about a boy, a leprechaun and a pot of gold. You can make illustrations based on our picture. Think of a cross little man with a pointed cap who lives under a hvlsted tree trunk—and don't forget the pot of goldl (Jerry Mills of Akron, Ohio, receives $10 for this question.
