Title The Bread Dough
Description of feathers and down. Only a few long tail feathers re-mained. We thought it rather strange that a grunting or muffled honk escaped from their throats when the breast down was removed. But Mrs. T. said it was only the poison gas escaping. But the sounds made us laugh. The geese were thrown back into the wheelbarrows and Mr. T. promised to bury them next morning. Morning came. Mrs. T.: Wake up everybody! Come and see! Those geese aren't dead. They are strutting about the yard catching flies! Mr. T.: Not dead! Dead drunk! Mrs. T.: Stop them before they go down to the pond. They will surely catch cold without feathers, or they may drown. 'Tis the feathers that keep the birds afloat. I remember the funny sight as Mr. T. herded the naked, honking, geese into the shed with only tail feathers bobbing as they wobbled along. However, by fall they were swimming contentedly on the pond. Mother Nature had pro-vided them with a fluffy new coat of feathers. And Mrs. T. had new down-filled pillows. Source: A personal experience. THF BREAD DOUGH Ruth Scow Manti, Utah Non-Professional Division Second Place Tie Anecdote Hannah lived in West View, a little grouping of farm houses west of Gunnison, Utah. The year was 1912. Across the canal Jewish colonists had purchased land from the Utah State Land Board. These men had worked long, hard hours to plow and seed some 1500 acres of virgin land and build "a few small houses, and to these our pioneers (colonists) brought their families." -3-
