in the ribbons worn by girls at
Paseo High. A yellow ribbon means
"Hunting for a Boy," a blue rib
bon an invitation to a kiss; ribbon
on both sides of the head betoken
desparation for a date. Almost
every girl wears some kind of rib
bon, though, because no ribbon at
all means one is a confirmed "old

(Editor's Note The following
was written by Staff Sergeant
Kenneth Wright, Co. A, Maint. Bn.
Camp Cooke, Calif., son of J. A.
Wright, of Killian street, who has
been in the service two years).
Having had the good fortune of
being born in the United States
of America, there are certain
things that I owe her. Namely,
devotion, loyalty and the supreme
sacrifice if necessary, my life.
By devotion I mean that sub
conscious feeling of admiration that
swells up at the sound of the na
tional anthem or the displaying of
the national standard the stars
and stripes. This urge which ex
presses itself usually in rendering
praise whenever, and wherever my
country may become the topic of
Loyalty, when demonstrated in
its multiplied forms may give the
agnostic room for contemptious
denouncement. Yet this same toy
alty is the one thing and the only
thing which can hold a country
united. In the true American it
is not worn on a shirt sleeve for
all to see, nor is it broadcast
openly in loud voiced declarations
or in boisterous demonstrations
against various evils.
These things are not necessary
to loyalty merely the using of those
rights given by our constitution
will show our loyalty, and by the
power of our vote, keep our coun
try clean and above reproach.
Lastly, and may there never be
a cause for America to collect her
just dues the supreme sacrifice,
This I owe and every one within
her borders owes, whether male or
female, white, yellow, black, red,
or brown, naturalized or otherwise.
It is impossible to say when and
how this debt should come due.
Although we all acknowledge the
debt we should have some rights
in dictating the time and place of
collection. ,' In defense . of our
country against invasion it would
be just, but in the defense of a
fanciful ideal, that is proprogated
by some foreign power, my country
or any country has a right to ask
that the sacrifice be made.
This I believe is what I owe
America, and there are those things
that she owes me which is covered
completely by quoting:
"We, the people of the United
States of America, in order to form
a more perfect union, establish
Justice, insure domestic! tran
quility, provide lor the common
defense, promote the general wel
fare, and secure the blessings of
liberty to ourselves and our pos
terity, do Ordain and establish
this constitution for the United
States of America.".
All these things expressed in the
preamble is what I have a right
to expect from America,

THEY TIDY UP THE SMOKE
There are lots of mistakes made
in the world and if you were to
ask Blackie Bear whether he ever
made any, it is very certain that he
would laugh at you, and he would
tell you that if there is any mis
take that he HASN'T made, he
would like for you to tell him
what it looks like.
When he first came to the Creek
just about everything he made
was a mistake; but because he
made a NEW mistake every time,
instead of making the same old
one, as Mr. Man and Uncle Joe
were always doing, he soon used
up all the mistakes, and he didn't
make any more. That was because
he worked his head well before he
started his feet moving.
Nowadays, Blackie sits on the
big roots of his house, and smokes
and smokes, and thinks and thinks,
and looks like he is just plain
loafing, but he isn't before he
starts to do a big job The very
best part of his work is done that
way, for it is then that he builds
up all his plans for keeping his
smokehouse filled. He has learned
that he has to THINK out his
plans before he can WORK them
out. And he didn't make any mis
take when he took that long sleep,
and told all the others to do the
same thing. You can't half do
things when you are sleepy, and
you certainly can't sleep on your
job, and WHOLE do it. Trying
to do that is just what kept Mr.
Man so poor, and Blackie is try
ing to wake him up. .
It was Monday morning, as you
know, and Jocko and all the other
boys had finished their long nap,
and had come over to see what
Blackie's plans for the week were.
Joe Reet had gone ovey, again,
the plans of Mr. Man for killing
hogs on Tuesday. Billie Possum
was saying what he could do with
a dish of spare ribs and ruta
bagas, and Jocko Monkey was talk
ing about the difference in the
meat of a red chicken and a white
one. ''But'we will have to do some
tall planning and some bigger
working, if we get any of those
pigs in the smokehouse, for there
is mighty little room," Doctor
"Pigs, indeed! There's nothing
piggy about them," Jocko said.
"There was only one pig there,
and I carried him home, the other
day. And he was every bit I could
wag with. All the others are sure
enough hogs, and fat hogs at that
They have been rooting around in
the peanut and potato patches, for
weeks, and they are fat a sight.
No sir, I couldn't bring one of
those big hogs over here. You
will have to borrow Hee-Haw and
"Don't worry about the size of
the hogs or the plans for moving
them," Blackie said. "I think I
saw a plan today, that is strong
enough to move the largest hog
Mr. Man has. I am not exactly
sure, just this minute, how it will
be done, but since it HAS to be
done, I expect to smoke some
moving plans out of my old pipe,
before supper time. It never in
the world would do to let all that
good pork, and all ' those big
pumpkins, get nearer to town than
Cool Spring. Come on, every
body, and let's fix things around
in the smokehouse. And it will
have to be a sure-enough smoke
house, now, for we will have to
smoke some of that meat so it will
keep a long time. Let's have
everything ready for company, for
I would hate to have some nice fat
hogs and chickens drive up to my
door, late at night, and not have
any place for them to sleep. It
wouldn't be a bit neighborly."
"One thing at the time, and
that done well," is a mighty good
old saying, and Blackie has tried
it out a lot of times, and has
found that it works well. Right
now that one thing to do was to
make room in the smokehouse for
a lot of winter supplies. Every
body else was talking about put
ting up things for winter use, and
he had just as well do like other
folks, only do better. After he
got everything ready for them he
could fix up his plans for getting
them in their places. The "fillings"
were being fixed up by one of his
neighbors, and he knew perfectly
well that his old pipe was going
to tell him just how he could
help that neighbor land a lot of
good things on the shelves in his
