"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
nog zooveel te doen heeft, zou ik...

A Choice Of Miracles
By JAMES A. COX
You're down in the jungle with death staring you in the face. There is nothing left but prayer. So you ask for your life. But wait! Are you sure that's really what you want above all else?
Andy Larson was a hard headed Swede. He had to be, to be still alive.

And in that time he hadn't heard anything that led him to believe anyone else had survived the crash.
Venus was the most miserable planet in the system, peopled by

different and afraid the difference would be discovered. You'll
remember this short story.

I stopped on the way to the Staten Island Airport to call up, and that was a mistake, doubtless, since I had a chance of making it otherwise. But the office was affable. "We'll hold the ship five minutes for you," the clerk said. "That's the best we can do...
