They were coming down the road, Doing twenty miles an hour. On Lady Lucks face, The s ,ile was very sour.


The stearing gear was faulty, The truck left the road. It ran alon6 the ditch, Hopping like a toad.

Apcost loomed up, The driver tried to miss it, But long tall Shao, Just had to try and kiss it.


The object hit the body,., The truck turned on it's side, Thly topplcd on the ground And Laymo.ds lost some hide.

Upon the sleeping babe a smile
lingered and played a little wnile And watchin. her so youn.,so fair
I wondered what she dreamed of
there.
Not yet, thought I, can she recall
Earth's pleasures, for sf.a is too

That lovely, winsome smile of bless
Comes from another world than thief

Still unfamiliar with delight
And beauty shs.ped for human sight. That tender dream of infancy
Born of another world must be.

Ere time her memories shall o'erwhe lm,
Perhaps in sleep she sees the
realm
Whera children romp in sportive mirth,
Waiting the change which men call
birth.

Since all remembrances will have fle
Before her first clear word is sai We'll never know khatha'py streams
A babe re-visits in her dreams.-Milam the Cook.

To me, deer have always been an interesting subject. One may find doer of some sl-Icies in practic-' a .Ly every rw.rt of the globe.
In -he 0c.

CONGRATULATIONS;?NEW BOYS

There is no one in camp who has en't seen the "mountain" of wood out at the wood pile. There's no nead to worry about fuel this win4 ter. All day long anyone around
camp can hear- the humming and buzz of the saw as stiok after stick i
cut and split and thrown on the "mountain". That crew around the wood pile resembles an army of ant preparing for winter .
According to the progress of work done on1 our camp site there can be no doubt but what we will have a most beautiful camp to live in before very long.
All of this work is being done
by the new boys under the supervision of Sergeant.-MR. SHEFFER PROGRAM

Mr. Sheffer gave the boys some very helpful advice as he showed
pictures which he made of the camp and field activities--The officers should h&ve hoard him as he pleaded for loyalty to tha whole program of the camp. Vie were happy to hear what he had to say about Capt. Bridges and Mr. Rogers-"Boys your best friends are these men in authority over you. They are interested in you and, therefore, should have your loyal support.--

Now that youare away from home and the influence of father, mother and sister, -let us not forget that we are gentlemen, even away out hJre in the Forest One oreat man once said "you

THE SEEDLING PINE Pa-;e #6 MR. ANONYMOUS, — RAMBLI NG THOUGHT S While I heartily a ree with md.st of your article in last issue, ther is one line that I seriously object to, mainly, that pertaining to following in the footsteps' of those gene on ahead in the CCC.. If the majority of them did not have the Camp Spirit, how oculd they oona out into the forest, clear the Site, oulld the Gamp, and build roads to Camp so that you boys could step out of your homes into another home ouilt by the pioneer sof .the CCC? Here is just one little item; Over 96 hours of overtime per man put in by 16 or 20 of our boys to pay for the Lumber that went into the building of our sidewalks, and foundations, of our tents in our Crooked Lake Camp. What, II no Camp Spirit? I should Smile, and don’t forget we received a pass of two. work days for all of those hours and were contented. So lets ha-e more and better co-operation..

So let us be the kind of a man our father and mother would be proud to carry to Ocala, or any town' where we are known and say: ’’this is my sony O.K.
