A Wild Scramble
JERKY, the squirrel girl, was so
stupid over her music lesson
that Miss Jones, the teacher,
losing all patience, rapped her
smartly over the knuckles with 3

Miss Jones shrieked wiltlly and the
squirrel nipped her on the wrist.
Outside on the curb. Perky, the
squirrel-boy, was tearing his hair
over Iiily's arithmetic problems.
Suddenly he became a squirrel
again. Jerky's first thought had
been of Ur companion.
Miss Jones rushed for the door
and as she threw it open, she sud
denly became a parrot. That was
Jerky's revenge for the unhappy
half hour she had spent at the piano.
Now Jerky was satisfied and she
rushed for freedom.
Fcggy and Billy saw their chance
to get the Stone, and darted down
to the door. A gust of wind slammed
it shut in their faces, with the Stone
"Woe! Woe!", croaked the Raven,
fluttering out from his hiding place
as the two rats discovered him. The
rats, angered at his escape, made

terribly powerful and ferocious.
Now began a terrible race, Peggy
and Billy on ahead, the rats right
after them. Up the tree, out on the

squirrels and right after them two
awful rats. Up went Hilda's feet!

Now the chase led through the
house, with rats after squirrels and
dog after rats. Teggy led the way
through halls and rooms to the spot
where the Imagination Stone lay.
The rats grabbed the squirrels tails,

"Just in time," hooted Judge Owl.
"Another second and I'd have eaten

A shout drew Teggy's attention
to the street. The man with the gun
was just about to shoot the sup
posed mad dog. Instantly Peggy
turned the bulldog back into the po
liceman. At the same moment she
turned Tony into' a monkey again,
and Sylvester back into an organ
grinder. Friskcr she turned back into a
dog and he joined Tom in chasing
the rats. Just as the rats were about

When it comes to plain or fancy
cake, our American housewives can
hold their own; and the same state
ment may be mad concerning
cookies; but our sisters, across the
water know many delightful varie
ties of small cakes neifTier "cake"
nor "cookies" as we know them
also many delicious kinds of raised
dough dclectables.' Many of their
recipes are from before-the-war food
price days; but they sound most
tcmptingind perhaps we shall be a
bit, reckless at the approaching foli
animal house at da park. I knowa
now it ain't no fun to be da monk
in da winter."
Tony did a dance of joy and so
did Peggy. And dancing, she dropped
the Imagination Stone and it rolled
out of sight in the sewer trap.
Looking up, after a vain search
for it, Peggy foiid herself alone.
-"Gracious, I'm glad I got things
straightened out before 1 lost the
Imagination Stone," . she sighed.
"Wouldn't it -have been awful if I
had been obliged to leave every
thing topsy-turvy." And Peggy
contentedly went back to her lessons.
Miss Gross will be very glad to
receive suggestions for the home
economics column or to answer,
as far as she is able, any ques
tions that her readers may ask.
