George is getting ready for a parade with his school. He was playing in his uniform and got it dirty. He knew his mother was going to hit the roof, and he was on tenterhooks on his way home. At least he was above board when he came in, because he knew that in the long run honesty is the best policy. Now his whole family will have to tighten their belts so they can buy material to make him a new uniform for the parade.
