Title Anecdote - Ramblings with Yesterday's Child
Description ANECDOTE Edith A. Allred Price, Utah Non-Professional Division Second Place Anecdote Children of the 1880's and 1890's were very underprivileged by today's standards. Christmas was a bleak affair, perhaps one present or only some candy or nuts for the children. My father told this story of a Christmas in his life when the children were sent to bed with the hope that Santa might come. Upon hearing a slight noise downstairs, the three curious little boys decided to investigate. They crept quietly to the knotholes in the floor and looked down. Each one was looking through a different knothole into the room below when their Father entered with a bright, shiny orange in his hand. Before he could place it in any sock, the child named Lyman shouted, "Put that in my sock, Dad!" "No, Dad, put it in mine," my father shouted. Needless to say, neither oneof them received the gift. Source: Reported as told to the author by her father, 0. M. Aldrich RAMBLINGS WITH YESTERDAY'S CHILD Edith A. Allred Price, Utah Non-Professional Division First Place Historical Essay The big bell atop the Hamilton School rang out loud and clear each school day at 8 o'clock. Children who were still in bed knew it was time to scramble downstairs and get ready for school. To be late was an unforgivable sin; it also entailed a trip to the principal's office. -2-
