Benedicta is dead! She died in her sleep last night." The words trembled on the lips of our teacher as she turned from the messenger at the door and slowly sank down on the seat behind her desk. I glanced around at my class- mates. Their faces were white; their books lay unopened on their desks. lanuar/s a terrible month to die in, I thought. So icy cold. So fro- zen solid. Even the pale winter rays of the sun leaking weakly through the east-windows couldn't warm the chilly air of the classroom. The houses across the street were only faint outlines as the north wind whipped around the building, whirling flakes of snow up from the cold ground that had been frozen as hard as a rock since last November. "Yes, lanuary is a terrible month to die in," I whispered to myself and laid my head on my desk. Sunny-faced Benedicta was a junior, one grade ahead of me. A short gently rounded figure with a wide smile topped by a head of straight dark brown hair that showed tints of auburn in the sun- shine. Her family lived on a small rock-strewn farm east of town where her parents scrabbled out a meager living supplemented by her father's work on the county roads. My mother always said they were "rock poor." There were two broth- ers. Benny. as we called her, was the only gift The room was silent for a long moment. The news was so unbe- strict." And then Miss Olivia told us how the family had a small por- table kerosene heater going in the cellar to keep the dozens of glass jars of canned fruits and vegeta- bles and the piles of potatoes, car- rots and turnips from freezing. The heater apparently was faulty and after the cellar filled with a crevice or crack in the walls of Benedicta~ room. She never knew that she was in danger. She went to sleep on Sunday night and never woke up. Then I said, "I spent the night with Benny last week." Everyone looked at me in horror. "I could have died, too." I shivered and pulled my sweater closer around me. Raymond, Benedicta's older brother, was real cute, and I'd hung around her for weeks hoping she'd invite me for an overnight. Finally, we decided on Wednes- day night and my mother let me go even though it was a school night. After all, she knew Mandy, Bene- dicta's mother, well. I just wanted to see more of Rayme. The ride to the Knower farm on the school bus was fun. Rayme sat way in the back. but I could see him every time I turned around. He was having fun fool- ing around with the other boys and not paying any attention to us girls. He jumped off the bus when Republic, the first official veter- ans organization, forerunner of the Legion we now know.

Miss Olivia wiped her eyes and stuffed her handkerchief back in her pocket as she rose from her de~k and stood uncertain and swal lowing hard. Quickly she sat back down saying, "I'11 just sit here while I talk to you." Someone from the back row spoke up, "lust tell us how Benny died." Then Miss Olivia said the barn. At the supper table every- one was quiet. His father did most of the talking. When we went to bed upstairs, Rayme slept across the hall from Benedicta's room and we made bright remarks back and forth until Mandy shouted up the stairway for everyone to get to sleep, that there was school tomorrow. fundraising event Kimball Area Dollars for Schol- ars is sponsoring a Wine-Cheese- Chocolate fundraising event.
