Pipe of Peace
By James McKimmey, Jr.
The farmer refused to work. His wife, a short thin woman with worried
eyes, watched him while he sat before the kitchen table. He was thin,
too, like his wife, but tall and tough skinned. His face, with its
leather look was immobile.
"Why?" asked his wife.
"Good reasons," the farmer said.
He poured yellow cream into a cup of coffee. He...
Turnabout may not always be fair play in the gulfs between the
stars. But so destructive and malicious are the Agronians of this

"What would you think," I asked Marjorie over supper, "if I should
undertake to lead a junior achievement group this summer?"
She pondered it while she went to the kitchen to bring in the dessert.
It was dried apricot pie, and very tasty, I might add.
"Why, Donald," she said, "it could be quite interesting, if I understand
what a junior achievement group is. What gave you t...

"En is er geen Amerikaansche Congo?" vroeg Max Huber.
"Amerika heeft zelf land genoeg", antwoordde John Cort, "er valt nog
genoeg te ontginnen tusschen Alaska en Texas en men behoeft waarlijk
niet naar vreemde koloniën uit te zien, als men binnen eigen grenzen
