I verify that both boys are, in
fact, Irish, although one could
probably guess as much with
one look at their shocks of red
hair and freckled faces. "St.
Patrick's Day is fun," adds
Ghris,"because Mom makes
cookies and green pancakes."
EMILY MELNICK, also a
first grader at the school, was
all decked out in a bright green
pant suit, even though she ad-
mits to not being Irish. "Our
teacher said we'd get kissed by
her if we didn't wear green,"
she explains.
"No, I'm not Irish. I'm Am-
erican," stated one student,
-whose brown eyes and afro
might also have been a clue
to his ethnicity. When asked
why he was wearing green, the
younster responded, "What. do
you think for - King Kong?
I want to be seen by the girls."
Jeremy, who requested his
last name not be used, related
the story of St. Patrick's Day.
"St. Patrick planted the sham-
rocks and took the snakes away,
then somebody shot him."
JERRY PIKU, although not
Irish, said his family's celebra-
tion of St. Patty's Day centered
around a special dinner. "We
usually have something like
chicken or mashed potatoes and
sometimes pizza."
Another celebration was sched-
uled at the home of Billy Schnor-
berg who likes to decorate for
the occasion by setting up card-
board clovers and Happy St.
Patrick's Day posters. Billy also

3ffered an explanation as to
w'hy people wear green on St.
Patrick's Day. "Somebody found
out that you wear green on St.
Patrick's Day to celebrate Notre
Dame's birthday because they're
the Fighting, Irish," he asserts.
Michelle Balcom knows beyond
a shadow of a doubt that she's
Irish, "I'm Irish because Mom-
my told me," -proclaimed the
petite second grader. Mean-
while, two precocious young
gentlemen seated near Michelle
stated that they were wearing
green because they were Mar-
tians, however, they firmly de-
nied that their underwear was
green.
FOUR-AND-A-HALE-year-old
Megan McGinn took some "time
out from her play at Pound
House Day Care Center 'to of-
fer her observations an St. Pat-
rick's Day. Her story of St. Pat-
rick, although somewhat differ-
ent from the older .childreiia'
version, was equally entertain-
ing. "He goes to a rainbow to
find some gold." Leprechauns
make magic gold then go away
and people find it."
A true Irishwoman, when
handed a globe. Megani proud-
ly pointed out the location of
the emerald Isle - in the mid-
dle of the Pacific Ocean.
Despite her youthful age, Me-
gan proved to be quite a phil-
osopher in her astute summation
of yesterday's activities, while
grabbing for a plastic dinosaur
she exclaimed, "St. Patrick's
Day is green and green makes
the whole world green!"
