Must have caused quite a bit of comment

          "My ideas have changed since my student days. Every boy goes through the stage of collecting, whether it's bird's eggs or butterflies or postage stamps."
          Miss withers knew that well enough, having been confronted with problems of such nature in her classes now and then - particularly did she remember the time when little Abraham brought his collection of white mice to school one afternoon.
