      Does anyone recognize the following poem:<BR>
      <BR>
      THE REAL TRAGEDY<BR>
      I do not weep to find my idol's feet are clay<BR>
      Because I know most man-made idols are that way.<BR>
      The thing that brings great gusts of grief o'er me...<BR>
      I find my idol's head is solid ivory.<BR>
                    --Don Blanding<BR>
      <BR>
      It appears in an original copy of the Honolulu Star-Bulletin from <BR>
      1926 that I'm selling on ebay (3249788639) and I wondered if it <BR>
      appears in any of his books in later years.<BR>
      <BR>
      I'm also selling a 1936 book of poetry by Harriet Gallet which has an <BR>
      illustration by Blanding in it. (3249780882)<BR>
      <BR>
      I've also listed another batch of 75th Anniversary Posters.<BR>

      Keith: I've not seen that poem before. When I read it I thought of No Strings text though......tj
