We never thought of ring- ing doorbells and asking for treats, the main idea was to keep out of sight, if possible. The darker the night the better for us, because we didn't want to be recognized and have our parents find out who we were bothering. The older we got the later we stayed out, and the things we did were still better kept secret. I don't remember doing anything that caused much damage, but some did, and to be seen in that neighborhood could put us in a bad spot. I remember a pile of bricks being smash- ed on the sidewalk near a new building, and the gang Ron Richards and I were with earlier in the evening, got caught in the act. The only way we got out of being charged with the guilty ones was because Ron's uncle was able to swear we were tipping over his outhouse at the time. He caught us in the act!

When very young we worked for weeks on notching spools to rattle on window panes, believing we would scare the wits out of those inside. I think we usually got the worst scare, because someone was often waiting around a corner to grab us. MODERN WAY Now the modern way of celebrating "All Saints Eve" is going from door to door hollering "trick or treat." It seems like blackmail; if you don't produce something we will mess up your windows or maybe worse, and when you do hand over apples and sweets, the children get a stomach ache from an overdose of goodies. Some folk have house parties for children, hoping to keep the youngsters out of mischief. Maybe a small application of a switch would do more good. There were often mas- querade parties for grown- ups as well. My wife and I will always remember waking up when the light came on in our bedroom one morning about 3 o'clock. A line-up of witches, goblins, and ghosts stood at the foot of our bed requesting coffee. The participants told us next day that some of the other folk they visited were not so well equipped for nightclothes as we were. I guess innocent mis- chief one night a year is a way of life, till it gets out of hand. WOODLOT CAPER Uncle Norman told me of Hallowe'en tricks he per- formed as a child in On- tario. One stunt stayed with me ever since. A neighbor bought two new fangled diamond harrows made completely of steel. Norm sneaked over late one Hallowe'en night. Taking the harrows one at a time, he tramped them into a swampy place in the woodlot. Norm left next day for the west, and the farmer never did find his harrows. The rest of the story didn't come out till about eight years ago. The old home town in Ontario was having its 100th. Old Boys reunion and Norm attended. When Norm saw his old neighbor, now over 80, he told him what he had done. They went out next day and took shovels down to the old woodlot. The men dug up traces of the two harrows. The neighbor knew Norm had something to do with the incident, but never found out for sure till that day almost 50 years later. Do you have a favorite hallowe'en trick you pulled years ago? I'll bet you do and I hope you sit back and grin to yourself as you think of it. Kids, remember things have changed no more rough stuff! 4-H CLUB REPORTS Wrentham 4-H Multi Club held a re-organization meeting Oct. 17.
