At Last, Aliís Grave
Tom McLaughlin

Kampung Jaie, Malaysian Borneo – I was a bit frustrated trying to get to this kampung. The Bomoh told us he could not meet us until September. I said we were going without him.

Musings on Europe
Patricia A. Kelly

The Day of Fountain Pens, No. 2 Pencils
Harry M. Covert

Back to school days. How exciting for all the young girls and boys preparing for kindergarten and elementary learning, plus the older and sophisticated heading to junior and senior high schools ready for classroom academic sessions and extracurricular activities, athletics and Friday night football and marching bands.

Observing Beauty and School Selection
Tom McLaughlin

Kuching, Malaysian Borneo – The girls! Oh, good lord! The girls! About 50 of the most beautiful Swedish and Danish students have moved into my building for six months. They are here to take courses in management and engineering from a local University in some sort of exchange program.
