   This month's poem is written by Shel Silver~tein.
He is well-known by youth and adults alike. (What do
you mean, you never heard of him?). Anyway, here's
an interesting poem. Catch the meaning.
                              Doug
    THE FARMER AND THE QUEEN            by     She I Silverstein.

    "She's coming", the farmer said to the owl.
    "Oh, what shall I, what shall I do?
    Shall I bow when she comes?
    Shall I twiddle my thumbs?"
       The owl asked, "Who?"

    "The Queen, the Queen, the royal Queen--
    She'll pass the farm today.
    Shall I salute?", he asked the horse.
       The horse said, "Nay"

    "Shall I give her a gift?" he asked the wren
    "A lovely memento for her to keep?
    An egg or a peach or an ear of corn?"
       The wren said "Cheap."

    "But should I curtsy or should I cheer?
    Oh, here's her carriage now.
    What should I do?" he asked the dog.
       The dog said, "Bow"

    And so he did, and so she passed,
    Oh, tra lala lala,                                         From: Where
    "She smiled, she did!" he told the sheep                    The Sidewalk
       The sheep said, "BAH"                                     Ends by S.S ..

thought we'd all enjoy it. D.G.
    IT   's "SHORTCAKE   TlME~"   (again!!!)

    On a blue-sky sunny day
    In the month of June,
    I recall the fragrance
    Of strawberry bloom.
   Bright red nuggets, juicy-sweet
   Hanging from each vine,
   Reminded youthful palates
   It was strawberry shortcake time.

   And off we went with happy hearts
   To the pasture's sunny knoll,
   To harvest nature's tangy fruit
   A delicacy for all.           By Juanita Johnson

Our alub has some 400 members in it ftow,and that is more then
most clubs in Ckiifornia@ BUt.e ha~e the smallest group of
people that particapate then any aaub around@
1" have been in this Club oVj8r 15year.- myself and senceI became
active in being on a commit~ •• I have gotten mere enjoyment out
of the Club then I thought ,ossable@
This year I became Pield Cbornator hoping that in atwad of one
person haveing to lead field trips *hat more people.would like
to get on the road and enjoy leading trips@ Well so far no one
has volunteered to lead a trip and its been hard to f6nd some
one to say they will lead@ Ibw this is not hard wor. we have
maps and areas loeated@ !h8 olub pays tor leaders Gas to
PreScout the area to lOU     !8t aquainted with it before taking
people ..
Now I would like to recieve a few phops calls or send me a card
saying that you would like to lead a tripe We have a lot of
local places that can be taken we only need some one to lead~

IiIX On any Field trip no matter how far you should always
have water with you and a iock Hammer@ These are the most
important items their is@
