Violet Heath has 2 kittens that have adopted her. They are kept in the house, so she doesn't know how one of them escaped. It was gone nearly a week. Violet worried and looked all around the neighborhood, but she didn't find it. She was afraid it would get cold as the weather was cold and rained some. One day, she heard the neighbor's dog barking. She opened the door to see what the dog was barking at, and in came the missing kitten. It ran to the food bowl and ate as if it was starved.

I decided to call some of my former high school classmates of 1952 to see if they were still living, as I haven't heard from them for several years. I called Oliver Peake, the millionaire, who lives in Houston, Texas. He has really done well, being from a large family and they farmed. Most of his brothers and one sister have died. Then I called Edward Butler of Tucker, Georgia. His mother died while he was a young age and his Uncle George and Aunt Annie Butler, who had no children, took him in and raised him. John Edward was a school teacher. He is well, walking 3 or 4 miles a day.
