The departmental secretary was ill for three days and the phone rang constant- ly at school and the paper- work piled up and up. The phone also rang off the wall at home until we wanted to jerk it off the ringing wall. Friday could not have been more welcome. Friday evening and then Saturday morning were spent at the llth Annual East Central Oklahoma Regional Science and Engineering Fair at Seminole Junior College. We were very proud for parents, students and teachers from several Oklahoma counties. Many of their students received awards There was also a beautiful green field near Dale with a flock of sheep. The new lambs with their long tails flying as they ran and jumped were fun to watch. I pulled over to side of the road and walked to the edge of the field where I could listen to the baaing of the lambs Fries" for a special treat. Then huge flocks of sheep would sometimes be driven down the highway and through the tiny town of Dayville (popula- tion 230) on their way to the summer range. Some- times my father and I would take some food to the mountains for a sheepherder by the name of Albert Hancock. On one trip we found Albert sleeping in a hammock off the ground because he because the hens had their feet on the ground and their craws full of green grass and insects.

Clearly visible along roadsides and in field were the tall patches of wild onions. This is the time of year when everyone needs to eat some wild onions and scrambled eggs. May Nichols in Shawnee cooks her wild onion in a pan with a little water and bacon grease and then adds the eggs. You can't eat scrambled eggs and onions without cornbread according to May. My springtime sugges- tion is for all of you to take a few hours away from television, phone and people and spend those hours alone with nature. In the words of the famous naturalist, John Muir: Climb the mountains and get their good tidings[ Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine into flowers. The wind will blow their freshness into you and the storms their energy, and cares will drop off like autumn leaves. I he locate her?
