On the table 46 colorful feathers were laid out. George was curious—what were they for? Betsy's classmates were making hats and decorations for the Centennial Celebration. George wanted to make decorations, too. In fact, he turned himself into a decoration! Then George's new friends cleaned off 47 colored strips
