February 17, 1967 The N.C. Essav Papp
Not long ago, a sad-eyed shag
gy puppy followed one of the girls
back to the dorm. Not wanting to
encourage the dog, and yet not cold-
hearted enough to withstand its
pleading gaze, the girl tried to
send doggie on its way. But doggi
wasn’t having any. With slowly
wagging tail, respectfully lowered
head and soft, limpid brwon eyes,
doggie stood in front of the girl.
At last, unable to refuse, the girl
swept doggie up in her arms and
smuggled it into the dorm under
Doggie quickly adapted to dorm
life. She learned not to be on the
bed unless she was asked, where
her sandbox and bed were, and ABOVE
ALL to be quiet when "Mommy" left
the room. Doggie was rewarded
with cold-cuts, milk, bits of candy
bars, crackers, pretzels, and love,
which she returned eagerly. She
was also given a name, "Kilroy,"
for never clearly understood reasons.
Calm and quiet and good, Kilroy '
was also eagerly playful and affec^r -
"Mommy” frequently had offers to
"dog-sit” and no one who knew
Kilroy could help loving her.
She was tiny, a small armful,
with brown hair in shades from toast
to chocolate. Kilroy has small, dainty
feet that were usually careful of
nylons. Her beautiful brown eyes
were soft and wet, like a doe's,
and she had one slightly lop ear
that made her even more loveable.
Smiling from the cradle of someone’s
arms, Kilroy looked like nothing
so much as a little fox.
The most astonishing thing
about Kilroy was her calm dignity.
If anyone made the mistake of sitting
on the floor to eat a snack, she
soon found two ears cocked forward
and a pair of eyes watching her.

students can have more freedom in
what they want read into them -
including the author's signature.
While watching an”Our Gang"
comedy one afternoon I wondered
what became of the group of
child stars over the years.
The answer, I discovered, is to
be found in a library book, the
Child Stars by Norman J.
"Great child stars sometimes
flash like dazzling meteors
through the screen heavens.
Almost on sight they glow with
a brilliant intensity and then,
with the same startling swift
ness, they burn out and fall."
