I found my father a very hard man to understand when I was young.He was very short and thin and had large blue eyes.I ould have loved him as I did my mother,but he seemed to hold us off so that we could not approach him or sit on his knee as love
to do.I believe he had a hard ife as a child,and I know that he left school at the age
of ten and started to work.This made him an unsociable man,unfriendly even to the
people closest to hin.I never knew him to have a close friend as the other men did.Everything he did had to be precise.If he chopped the sticks for the fire,each
stick would be the same length and thickness as all the others,and they would all be stacked without Oue out ofplace.His motto was"Ifa thing is worth doing it is worth doing well.In our household his word was law and nobody dared dispute it.
He worked hard when in a job and saw to it that we children learned the meaning
of work.My mother did not have much pleasure but I do not remember her ever complaning-except on Sunday afternoons when father would take off his clothes and get into bed,leaving her to mend his working clothes while he had his rest.This
she disliked very much,for the clothes were dirty from the work he had been doing
and she hated handling anything that was not clean.

Have you ever wondered why different animals or pests have their particular colors?Colors in them seem to be used mainly to protect themselves
Birds,especially seagulls,are very fond of locusts but birds cannot easily catch locusts because locusts change their colors together with the change of the color of crops.When crops are green,locusts look green.But when crops are ripe,locusts take on exactly the same brown color as crops have.Some other pests with different colors
from plants are usually easily found and eaten by their enemies.So they have to hide
themselves in terror for lives and appear only at night.
If you study the animal life in any part of the world,you will find the main use of coloring is to protect themselyes.Bears,wolves and other beasts move quietly
through forests.They are usually invisible to the eyes of hunters,because they have
the color much like the barks of trees.
An even stranger act remains to be noticed.A kind of fish living in seas can send out a kind of very black liquid when it faces danger.While the liquid spreads over,its enemies cannot find it.and it immediately swims away.Thus,it has existed up to now though it is no powerful at all.

Survival is an art.Survivors are artists.The best acting is done in daily life,not on the stage.My late uncle Sir Alexander Korda,the motion-picture producer who could"charm money out of an empty safe",was a gifted survivor.
Once,a group ofinvestors called him in to complain that he had lost 5 00 000 of their money.Most men would have tried to defend themselves.Alex did not."You are
right."he said quietly,"I have been wasteful,and careless.I have chosen the wrong
scripts,paid too litleattention to the budgets.I am too old for this business.I will retire.I only hope you will forgive me."

was out of the question for him to resign;they wouldn't hear it.And by lunchtime,
Alex had 2 000 000 more of their money and was baek in the action again.When I
asked him if he was happy about it,he said,"No.They would have put up three or

short of money as we have to buy lots of Christmas presents.

sizes and so were not suitable for me.But I did buy a television at a very cheap price,so I felt quite pleased with myself.
When I arrived at the station,my husband was not there.So I sat down in a nearby cafe to have a cup of tea.I quickly finished my tea when I saw my husband
and went out to meet him.He looked very happy.Then I saw he was carrying a
large and heavy cardboard box."Oh,dear!"I thought.Yes,we had no new clothes
