IN OREGON HOMES
"ADVENTURES OF A SHIRT."
The following story, "Adventures
of a Shirt" was written by Miriam
Hale, eighth grade pupil in the lone
schools, as a part of her school
Howdy, folks; I'm what's left of
a red silk shirt I was pretty when
I was young, but I think by the
looks of me now, anyway, that I
was young many long years ago.
My adventures started when I
was bought from a little store in a
small Texas town. I was bought by
a young cowpuncher to wear in the
rodeo. As I was pretty expensive,
I was only worn on special occa
sions, such as the rodeo or when
my master went to see his girl.
I sure learned lots the first time
I was worn, about how to ride
bucking horses, bulldog steers, rope
calves, etc. My master was a very
good rider and we won many prizes
but of course we never got conceit
ed or anything, that wouldn't do at
The first time I went with him to
see his girl, we had lots of fun. Of
course, we did every time for that
matter, but being the first, that was
the one impressed on my memory
the most We, my master, his girl,
and I, went riding over the range
together. We went clear up on top
of a hill and looked all over the
valley. It sure was pretty scenery.
The girl was pretty, too.
Towards sundown we went back
to the girl's house again, and stayed
'till her father kicked us out When
we were home I was laid carefully
I was worn many other times
too, too many to tell about, but one
day my master was fired and he
forgot to take me with him. I
stayed in my old place until one
day a poor gypsy woman came,
begging for something to eat and
to wear. The "boss" was a kind
hearted man and while searching
for something to give her, he found
me, so he gave me to her.
I didn't like my new life so well
at first but soon became accustom
ed to it and began to like it It
was much better than being packed
away all the time anyway.
The first time I was worn here
was at a wedding. It reminded me
of my old master and his girl, but
I had no time to think of that now.
I must look my best If I wanted to
make a good hit But it appeared
I had already done that, because
everyone was looking at me and
admiring me, for you see my other
master had taken good care of me
and I was still very pretty.
After the wedding, there was
dancing and I was haunted for days
by the sweet wailing music and
wild, beautiful dancing of the gyp
sies. I soon got used to that, too,
but I always liked It.
I was worn many times until
I was worn out, but my master
still keeps me to remember his
wedding day by.

from Mrs. Zelta Rodenwold, exten

of this community. "First I used
a good sandpaper and got my
boards clean and smooth. I let the
varnish dry thoroughly before ap
plying the second and third coats
and I used a very fine sandpaper
lightly before each coat Now my
boards are like glass and easily
kept clean. I also put spar varnish
on top of my breakfast work table,
it saves cloths and I like It better."

An Unexpected Wiener Roast.
A surprise weiner roast was giv
en in honor of the senior class of
Alpine at the B. P. Doherty home
May 14. The Alpine school pupils
and club members of the Wee Six
Cook3 club had planned this sur
prise, and as an excuse to get the
three senior graduates to come and
yet not know of the weiner roast,
the last meeting of the Wee Six
Cooks was to be held before the
time for the roast. The place was
filled with excitement all the way
through the meeting. After the 4
H club pledge were the songs and
yells. The copies for them were
made and distributed to the visit
ors by Rhuey Ann Senter, the lead
er of the songs and yells. There
was lots of fun and excitement
when we had the yells because the
visitors joined in on them. For the
one-minute talks each member read
his or her "Story of My Work,"
written on the back of each record
book. Then before going to the
weiner roast a list of games was
brought by Peggy Kilkenny to be
played in the house, although she
also had games for before and af
ter the weiner roast to be played
out of doors. There was a wide
space of ground in front of the
building on which a bonfire was
made. To eat there were buns,
weiners, mustard, marshmallows
and cookies. And the cookies were
made by members of the Wee Six
Board man Cub Meets.
Our president, Francis King,
called the cooking club to order on
Thursday, May 19. We voted on
"The Kitchen Cooks" as our club
name. Our president appointed

porter. The meeting was closed
