"School?" gasped Chang, opening his eyes wide. "I can't pay." "We know," smiled Father Paul. "You can live here, learning to read and write, and about Jesus:" "Jesus?" Chang looked puzzled. "He's the Savior of the world. You'll learn tO love Him. His birthday is soon!" A boy--a head taller than Chang-- scampered out of one of the buildings. "Sen," called Father Paul, "this is Chang, who'll stay in your house, and take care of our poultry. Please show him where to bathe, get clean clothes for him, and when the bell rings, bring him to the dining room." Chang followed Sen, but / at first he re- fused to take off his dirty rags and bathe. "Perhaps they want to steal my clothes, or sell me, or kill me!" he thought. Sen coaxed, then he said: "I was a wolf boy like you. Don't be scared. You'll like it here. And now, at Christmas, everything's wonderful!" After bathing and getting on clean clothes, Chang felt better; and when he saw the bowls of steaming rice and tea, his eyes brightened. He grabbed a bowl and began to gulp the food. But Sen took away the bowl. "There's plentyW be explained. "No one will snatch it! Each eats only his own!" Chang liked'the food, the warmth and a place to sleep; but he didn't like go-. ing to church or school, Instead of pay- ing attention and trying to learn, he would sit dreaming of his old life on the poultry boat, longing for the freedom of the river. The Only time he was happy, was when he was around the pohltry, taking care of them and talking to them. When Chang went to Vlass, he lis- tened, but didn't believe. "No one could be that good!" he would say to Sen every time he heard the Gospel. Sen tried to make .him understand and help him to a better life, but Chang would only shrug, "Not me!" When Father Paul told the Christmas story, Chang thought: "What's that to me?" He barely glanced at the crib. He didn't "join in the hymns or prayers. When Sen told him, "O.n the day before Christmas we kill chickens Jfor our fine Christmas dinner," Chang mad e up his mind. "Today I shall steal the fowl, be- fore they kill any," he decided. "I'll sell them and buy a little boat to start my business; then I won't have to sit in church and school, and hear all this Christmas stuff!" After Mass, Father Paul stopped him. "Chang, I'm going on a little trip to an- other school to help them with their Ch'isLmas program. Here are my keys to the poultry coops and feed bins. I'll leave them in your charge while I'm gone. You're so good at your work." As the priest walked away, Chang gloated: "I didn't think it'd be so easy." In the classroom, Chang stared at books without seeing them, saying to himself. "I'll have the best poultry boat on the Yangtze!" Suddenly, he remem- bered the Words of Father Paul as he pointed to a crucifix: "That sad look is caused by our sins. He gave us only love. He gave us His life, and yet we crucify Him by doing wrong!" Chang fingered the keys to the poul- try house: "I'll do it, just as it's dark!" He thought the day would never be over. When passing by a crucifix, he lowered his head so as not to see it. He took care of the poultry as usual, then, when everyone was out of sight, he called to his feathered friends. The fowl flocked into the coop after him. He put them into feed bags. "Not a squawk!" he thought, tying the last cord. Yet, the eyes of the Figure on the crucifix seemed to be following. him---and to look Sadder than ever. And he could hear the choir boys practicing: "Adeste Fideles." "If I steal," Chang said aloud, "I can't ever look at the crucifix!" Slowly opening the bags, he let the poultry out. He folded the empty sacks, put them tu the corner, and locked the coops. Going towards the mission build- ings, he was about ready to cry. Father Paul came in at the gate. "I got back sooner than I expected," he said. "You're such a dependable help, Chang." "I must tell you, Father Paul . . ." and the obbing'boy told his story. Father Paul listened, then he said: "My prayers for you have been answered. I knew you weren't satisfied, but you must have patience. Try to give your heart to the Christ Child at this joyful Christ- mas season. Stay with us and learn. Some day you can earn enough to own a poultry boat." Suddenly Chang was warmly happy happy as he never had been before. "I can look at the Lord newt I'll get my boat, too. If I'4 stolen, I'd have lost both." "And Christmas" too." Father Paul smiled as he said it. The song of the choir boys echoed la Chang's heart, and he sang with them: "O come, all ye faithful, Joyful and triumphant. O come ye to Bethlehem!"
