PERKINS HEADSTART STUDENTS by Zola Sample fter the celebration of Easter, Folks seem to have taken on a new spirit and feel ambitious. They really start liv- ing it up. Birds are singing, making nests and hunting for feed and worms. Everything takes on a new meaning. Life is worth living! Pa and the boys grab their fishing poles, dig worms, grab a left over pancake, fold in a strip of bacon or so and are off for a day's fishing. Soon the fields will be calling to be tended and time rushes on. Everyone in the household gets busy with tasks. The windows are thrown open, blankets and quilts hung en the line and pillows put out to sun. A pot of navy beans put on to cook with a slab of salt pork and a batch of cornbread or lightbread fixed to rise, ready to bake later. It is a great time to plan ahead for sunny April days. Radishes, fresh lettuce and new green onions gathered in, while mother rakes the dead leaves from the asparagus bed to look for shoots. Never a dull mo- ment! A musical voice breaks on the early morning atmosphere and the birds round about joining in the song. Happy April Days. Spring is a glorious time for all mankind, animals and insects to boot. Toads come out of their hibernation, insect hunting fleas hatch, etc. Newborn colts frolic beside their mothers while they btraze. Baby calves nuzzle their mother while she gives them loving care, before they are discovered by the farmer. He is glad to know in a few days to have fresh milk for making butter and cheese. Life is one great time to en- j oy all features of nature's happen- ings. Tasks seem never finished the days may be longer, but time seems swifter. April Showers bring May flowers. Crops are plante(L Crows call back and forth across the fields. They spy the fresh plowed ground know- ing seeds will soon be sprouting. Great is life in the country. City folk enjoy their blooming daffodill flower gardens in full bloom and other early plants and shrubs. Parties are held, cookouts enjoyed. Old friends are entertain- ed of an evening. Folks feel happy and blessed when weather settles down from cyclone warnings. It is the time of year to heed weather warnings. Severe weather conditions have dampened the spirits of chicken raisers and folk who have a few chickens even on town lots are blessed so they my set their hens and raise theor own fryers this years. All poultry products will prc~ bably be rather scarce and prices will soar. Nevertheless when conditions of any sort get out of hand people have a tendency to adjust. It is the American way of survival. What a great people. Progress must go on. Discouragement will pass and folk take hold again with a spirit that survives all discouragement and disaster. A walk through the woods or wooded outdoors, or anywhere dose to nature, heals the thoughts from the discouraging spirit. The earth springs forth with renewed vigor and soon oneself must do the same. Dwellings on the loss of most bad happenings must be dealt with, with God's help. Tomorrow will be better, brighter day. It is the month of April so be gay. Something is bound to come your way. It does for me. This year is 1/4th gone. It is time to be happy! are celebrating "The Week of The Young Child" this week.
