The Grove Station Torch
By Mary L. Bushong
  

1     Mr. Kahn stood up at the front of his fourth grade class and held up his hands for silence.

3     The whole class erupted into a noisy throng.
 
4     Mr. Kahn raised his voice over the din. "Please resist the temptation to talk. I happen to have it on good authority that overly vocal people do not write well. A good reporter needs to listen. This project will take a good portion of the week, so be prepared to work."
