burned and the potatoes all sooty? It tastes far better than cranberry Mact
and turkey, doesn’t it? Others of you will probably be seeing football game!
or just have a lovely day w'ith your family and friends.
But, children, whatever you’re doing on Thursday, do take “time out.” a,

My love to you all, SISTER MIRIAM
Here is a dear little letter from one of our younger readers. Don’t you
think Beatrice writes nicely?
Dear Sister Miriam:—
I like the new page just fine. I tried to work the puzzles but they are tot
hard for me. Mother says that perhaps you’ll have a special ore that’s easier
if I ask you to. Will you. please, because I’d surely like to be on the magiciari
And please have a story with Adventure in it. I like that kind.

Fondly your little friend,
BEATRICE SCHILLER, Age 10.
Beatrice, you shall have an easier puzzle very soon—and I do like geog
raphy! Its really fun.
Now just one more letter—from one of my boys.
Dear Sister Miriam: —
I don’t like poetry, but I do like stories and puzzles. 1 liked “A Lore
Game” but I wish it had been about football instead of tennis. I have never
played tennis but I think I’ll try next summer. We play most everything el*
though. I am a forward on our school class basketball team. I hope to make the
varsity next year, or anyway when I get to Junior High.
If I write a basketball story, could you use it?
Sincerely. MARY IS GOLDSTEIS
Yes, Marvin. I certainly could use a basketball story! Let’s have it soon.
Of course we must have poetry. These verses are from a very little g.r
The Pilgrims had to be so brave
In the days gone by,
For their Thanksgiving turkeys
Very hard they had to try.
All around were Indians
With arrows swift and keen.
Ready to shoot the Pilgrims,
Who in the woods were seen.
I am glad I live today
In a time so safe and sane.
And turkeys taste just twice as good
Because thev’re all so tame.
