"Girls guess what?" exclaimed Zan Baker, a few days after the return of the Woodcraft Band from their summer camp on Wickeecheokee Farm.

"Goodness only knows what you have to tell now!" laughed Jane Hubert, another of the five girls who founded Wako Tribe.

"Well, I got it direct, so the truth hasn't been turned or twisted by any one of you girls before it was passed along," retorted Zan, with a gleam of mischief in her eyes.
