God's Signals

[For children]

Ken came running home from kindergarten, waving his weekly newspaper.

"We're learning about Indians, and I know how to make signals the way they used to do. You can learn all about it, Mom. It's in my newspaper."

Then, while Mother went into the kitchen to prepare supper, he began to tap out some messages to her. He was a young Indian brave sending signals from a deep valley, and she was the Indian chief on top of Bear Mountain above the valley, answering his signals by beating a spoon on a frying pan.
