Now the Special English program American Stories.

Our story today is called "The White Circle". It was written by J.B.C. Here's Sp.N to tell you the story.

As soon as I saw Anvol sitting in the apple tree, I knew we would fight, I also knew, he would win. But winning or losing was not important, at least not so important as getting him down from the tree. The tree was mine. It was a young tree, and it had thirteen beautiful apples on it. Now my beautiful apples were under Anvol's shirt.

The tree became mine the day I was twelve years old. Father called me to come to the barn to see the new young horses. When I got there, father lip a cigarette and placed one foot on the fence. He looked pleased and proud.
"T.", he finally said, "This is a big day. There before you, our five of the finest horses in all V. Now I would give you a gift for your birthday, could you make a choice?"

"Yes", I said.
"Which one?'' he asked.
"I would like to have the apple tree across the road."

Father looked at me for a long time. You would have to know how much he loved horses to understand the look on his face. But I was twelve years old, how could I explain my choice?

It was something about the apple tree. The color of the red apples as they hung among the green leaves. But it was more than this. It had something to do with being proud. I could give one of the apples to my friend Jennie. "Jennie", I would say, "I want to give you this apple. It came from my tree. The tree grows on my father's land. Before my father had the land, it belonged to his father, and before that, to his father. Now I own the tree.'' Because of this, I am tied to all my people of long ago way back the Moses and all the Bible people.
