CCC Boys Are Contirmed in BEDTIME STORY FOR CHILDREN By THORNTON , THE HUNTER LIES IN WAIT FOR LIGHTFOOT I F EVER tl~ere was an angry hunter it was the one who had followed Llghtfoot, tim Deer, across tile Big River. When he was ordered to get off the land wilere Lightfoot had climbed out, he got back into his boat, but lie didn't row back to the other side. Instead, he rowed down the Big River, finally landing on the '~l'hat's Where That Deer ~ill Head For," He Muttered. same side, but on land which Light- feet's friend did not own. "When that deer has become rested he'll get uneasy," thought the hunter. "He won't stay on that man's land He'll s'mrt for the ~earest woods. I'll go liP there and wait for him. I'll get that deer if only to spite that fellow back there who drove me off Had it not been for him I'd have thai deer right now. He was too tired to have gone far. He's got the hand- somest pair of antlers I've,seen for years. I can sell that head of his for a good price." So the hunter tied his boat to a tree and once more got out. He climbed up the bank and studied the land, Across a wide meadow he could see a brushy old pasture, and back of that, some thick woods. He grinned. "That's where that deer will head for," he muttered. "There isn't any other place for him to go. All I've got to do is to be patient and wait." So the bunter shouldered his terri- ble gun and tramped across the mead- ow to the brush-grown pasture. There he hid among the bushes where he could peep out and watch the land of Llghtfoot's friend. He was still angry because he had not been allowed to Gives Two Million Lucius Nathan Littauer, glove manu- facturer and former representative in congress, is establishing a graduate school of public administration at Har- vard through a gift of $2,000,000.

But at the same time he chuckled, because he thought him- self very smart. Ligi]tfoot couldn't possibly reach the shelter of the woods without giving him a simt, and he hadn't tim least doubt that Lightfoot would start for the woods just as soon as he felt able to travel. So he maae himself comfortable and prepared to wait the rest of that day if necessary. Now Ligl~tfoot's friend wilo had drlv- en tl]e hunter off had seen him row down the Big River, and he had guessed Just what was in that hunt- er's mind. "We'll fool him," said lle. chuckling to himself as he walked back toward the shed where poor Lightfoot was resting. Iie did not go too near Lightfoot, paying no attention to him, but going about his work. You see, this man loved and understood the little peoplq of the Green Forest and the Green Meadows. and he knew that there was no surer way of winning Llghtfoot'~ confidence and trust than by appear- ing to take no notice of him. Light. foot, watching him, understood. He knew that this man was a friend and would do him no harm. Little by lit- tle, the wonderful blessed feeling of safety crept ever Lightfoot.

RESPONSIBLE By DOUGLAS MALLOCH IDO not think tlmt I could drink a p a r t Instead of play it, making drink my art, Nor think that I, my very soul un- dressed, Could make a woman's virtue but a jest. I do not thihk that I could do these things, No nmtter what the recompense it brings, And not look farther than my weekly pay, A little farther than my ease today. A thousand theaters I would behold. Would see tl~em now, and see them when I'm old, Where youths and maidens sit in semi- dark, On wimm each word and gesture leave a mark. If I were showing little children's eyes To drink is clever and to sin is wise, Then I would wish to seek some secret place, Ashamed to look all children in the face. I do not think that I could speak a line To sonie one's child I would not speak to mine, Nor speak to age, however gray and sere, A llne not fit for anyone to hear. For they who play with hearts upon the stage, Or mold the mind upon the printed page, Cannot, whatever their excuse-may be, Escape their great responsibility• © D0ugla~ MaUoch --WNU Service.
