Robert Rooster stretched himself, 
then he flapped his wings ond gave his 
loudest crow. "Cock-a-doodle-doo!" 

"There," he said, "that should wake 
everybody up !" 

He hopped down off of his perch 
and strutted out to the barnyard. 
"Well," said Mrs. Biddy Hen, "aren't 
you a little late?" 

Robert looked around: The Drake 
Family were swimming about in the 
pond; Betsy, the cow, had 'gone to the 
meadow; ond Dobbin, the horse, was 
pulling his plow through the field. "Oh, 
my goodness," said Robert, "I've over- 
slept again. Whatever will I do?" 

"I don't know, Robert," said Mrs. 
Biddy, "but I do know that I missed my 
early worm this morning because you 
didn t wake me on time." 

"I know what," soid Robert, "I'll 
have someone call me in the morning." 
Sa he asked Elmer Porker if he would, 

"I'll be glod to," said Elmer. "Let's 
turn in now and we'll hove time for □ 
chat before we go to sleep." And, in- 
deed, Elmer chatted. He talked and 
talked and talked, so poor Robert 
didn't get to sleep until it was al- 
most down. Naturally, he slept all 
day long. My, but Robert was ashomed 
when he got up and heard all the

barnyard animals gossiping about him, 

"Why," he heard one soy, "thot Rob- 
ert Rooster is the laziest Getter-upper 
we've ever had." "Yes," another an- 
swered, "and we're all getting into 
trouble on his account." 

"Oh, let's give him just one more 
chance," said Mrs. Biddy Hen, who was 
very kind hearted. 

"All right/' everyone decided, "but 
this is absolutely the lost one." 

Mrs. Biddy hurried off to tell Robert. 
"Now you ask Mr. Dobbin, the horse, 
how he manages to get up on time," 
she advised. "He's never late." 

Robert waited for Mr. Dobbin to 
come in from the field. Mr. Dobbin was 
very obliging and whispered his secret 
for getting up into Robin's ear. 

The next morning just before the 
sun came up, which was exactly the 
right time for it, o beautiful crow, 
"Cock-a-doodle-doo" rang out oyer the 
farm. Robert was on time. And the 
next morning after that the some thing 
hoppened, and the next. 

"What was Mr. Dobbin's secret," 
soid Mrs. Biddy, one morning. "It cer- 
tainly worked a miracle, Robert." 

"It is very eosy once you know how," 
said Robert. "You see, if you go to bed 
and go to sleep on time, you are sure 
to rise on time. That's all there is to it."

BUCKY BEAVER 

&& RESCUE 




"Help! Help!" colled o voice. 

Ronnie Turtle, who was out for a 
stroll with Louis Lizard, stopped. 

"Did you heor someone call help, 
help!" he osked Louis. 

"Yes I did," said Louis. "Aod It 
sounded like it come from that hole 
over there." 

'That's impossible," said Ronnie, 
who was really a little smug. "Nobody 
would fall in there." 

"Maybe not, but we hod better look 
anyway," answered Louis, who was 
sometimes quite wise. 

Together they went over and peered 
down into the hole. And there, right in 
ihe bottom, was boby Danny Duckling. 

"Well," said Ronnie Turtle. "I didn't 
think about a baby duck. However did 
you get down there 3 " he called. 

"I just fell in," said Danny. "Please 



get me out. I don't want Mamma to 
know I'm down here because I wasn't 
supposed to go out playing by myself." 

'This is quite serious, said Louis 
Lizard. "I really don't know how we're 
going to get you out. We could throw 
you a vine but you waddle too much to 
climb up a vine" 

. "Never mind the vine," said Ronnie 
Turtle. "I'll just go down and carry you 
out. You con hang on to my bock." 

So over the edge of the hole went 
Ronnie. He slipped and slithered and 
scooted right to the bottom. 

"Heaven's!" exclaimed Ronnie. "I 
had no idea it was so steep." 

"Gosh. Then you can't get me out, 
can you?" said Danny Duckling, and 
big tears ran down his bill. 

"Oh poof ! Of course I con," soothed 
Ronnie Turtle. "Just get on my bock." 

Danny waddled up onto Ronnie's 
hard shelled back and Ronnie started 
up the steep side of the hole. But when 
he had gone just a little ways up the 
side his hind foot slipped, then his 
front foot slipped, and all four of his 
feet slipped and down he tumbled to 
the bottom ond landed right on his 
back, which wasn't very pleasant for 
Danny who got squashed under him. 

"Help! Help!" colled Ronnie Turtle 
who got very excited because he 



couldn't get on his feet again. 

"Oh, this is awful," said Louis Lizard 
who was watching from the top. "I'll 
have to go get some of the other ani- 
mals to help me." And off he went. 

Pretty soon he come back, ond he 
had Hippy Hop the Rabbit, and Bucky 
Beaver and Manny Mole and Ricky 
Raccoon, all with him. 

Ricky Raccoon, looking down the 
hole, gave his opinion first. 

"It looks hopeless to me. I guess 
we'll just hove to leave them there and 
throw down food to them." 

"That's a good idea," "said Manny 
Mole. "And then one of these days 
Danny Duckling will be big enough to 
fly out." 

'That's oil right for Danny Duck- 
ling," said Louis Lizard, "but what 
obout Ronnie Turtle?" 

"Hmmm!" said Hippy. 'This doesn't 
look so hard, even though I can't tell 
you exactly what to do." 

"Well," said Bucky Beaver, who had 
been examining the hole. "I think I 
know what to do. You fellows just 
come to the creek with me." 

When they oil got down to the creek, 
Bucky said: "Now you fellows oil get 
busy and dig a ditch from the creek 
bank over to the hole." 

So Hippy Hop ond Louis ond Manny 
and even Ricky started digging a ditch, 
even though Ricky didn't like getting 
his paws dirty and kept going to the 
creek to wash them. Bucky Beaver 
went off by himself ond was very busy. 

At last the ditch was dug right over 
to the hole and Hippy, Louis, Manny 
and Ricky looked up to see what Bucky 
was doing, and what d.id they see but a 
little stream of water running along 
the ditch and right into the hole. And 
before many minutes hod possed the 
hole was full of water and Danny Duck- 
ling and Ronnie Turtle floated up to 
the top. 

"Thank you for rescuing us," sold 
Donny and Ronnie. "How ever did you 
do it?" 

"I just dammed up the creek," 
answered Bucky. "Engineering is really 
quite simple for us beavers."
