2 literary analysis: first-person point of view When you listen to a friend talk, you can learn a great deal about him or her. Your friend s personality, experiences, and opinions all come through. The same is true when you read a story from one character s point of view. When a story is told from the first-person point of view, the narrator is a character in the story tells the story using the pronouns I, me, we, and us tells the story as he or she experiences it As you read The Scholarship Jacket, notice how the information you receive is limited to what the narrator sees, hears, thinks, and feels. reading skill: make inferences One way to get the most out of what you read is to make logical guesses, or inferences, about things that are not directly stated. Base your inferences on details in the story and on your own knowledge and experiences. As you read The Scholarship Jacket, record each inference you make in an equation like the one shown. Details from the Text Martha couldn t play sports because of cost. vocabulary in context My Experiences I couldn t go to playoffs because of expense. + = Inference Martha s grandparents don t have extra money.

The Scholarship Jacket is one of several short stories Salinas has published in journals and collections. background to the story Texas History The main character in The Scholarship Jacket is a Mexican- American girl who lives in Texas. The history of Tejanos, or Texas Mexicans, dates back more than 200 years. As early as 1731, Tejanos established a ranch community in what was then northeastern Mexico. About 100 years later, Mexico invited immigrants from the United States to settle in the region. The Tejanos and the immigrants eventually joined forces to fight for their independence from Mexico, and in 1845, Texas became part of the United States. Mexicans continued migrating to Texas, but they often faced discrimination. Today, over seven million residents of Texas are Mexican Americans. word agile dismay falsify list despair eavesdrop vile 1. She unhappily swallowed the medicine. 2.

3 Marta Salinas 10 T he small Texas school that I went to had a tradition carried out every year during the eighth-grade graduation: a beautiful gold and green jacket (the school colors) was awarded to the class valedictorian, the student who had maintained the highest grades for eight years. The scholarship jacket had a big gold S on the left front side and your name written in gold letters on the pocket. My oldest sister, Rosie, had won the jacket a few years back, and I fully expected to also. I was fourteen and in the eighth grade. I had been a straight A student since the first grade and this last year had looked forward very much to owning that jacket. My father was a farm laborer who couldn t earn enough money to feed eight children, so when I was six I was given to my grandparents to raise. We couldn t participate in sports at school because there were registration fees, uniform costs, and trips out of town; so, even though our family was quite agile and athletic there would never be a school sports jacket for us. This one, the scholarship jacket, was our only chance. a In May, close to graduation, spring fever had struck as usual with a vengeance. 1 No one paid any attention in class; instead we stared out the windows and at each other, wanting to speed up the last few weeks of a On the basis of the details in the painting, how do you think the girl is feeling? agile (BjPEl) adj. quick and light in movement FIRST-PERSON POINT OF VIEW Who is the narrator?

A flat chest, no hips, and a brain; that s what I had. That really wasn t much for a fourteen-year-old to work with, I thought, as I absent-mindedly wandered from my history class to the gym. Another hour of sweating in basketball and displaying my toothpick legs was coming up. Then I remembered my P.E. shorts were still in a bag under my desk where I d forgotten them. I had to walk all the way back and get them. Coach Thompson was a real bear if someone wasn t dressed for P.E. She had said I was a good forward and even tried to talk Grandma into letting me join the team once. Of course Grandma said no. I was almost back at my classroom door when I heard voices raised in anger as if in some sort of argument. I stopped. I didn t mean to eavesdrop, I just hesitated, not knowing what to do. I needed those shorts and I was going to be late, but I didn t want to interrupt an argument between my teachers. I recognized the voices: Mr. Schmidt, my history teacher, and Mr. Boone, my math teacher. They seemed to be arguing about me. I couldn t believe it. I still remember the feeling of shock that rooted me flat against the wall as if I were trying to blend in with the graffiti written there. I refuse to do it! I don t care who her father is, her grades don t even begin to compare to Martha s. I won t lie or falsify records. Martha has a straight A-plus average and you know it. That was Mr. Schmidt and he sounded very angry. Mr. Boone s voice sounded calm and quiet. Look. Joann s father is not only on the Board, he owns the only store in town: we could say it was a close tie and The pounding in my ears drowned out the rest of the words, only a word here and there filtered through.... Martha is Mexican... resign... won t do it.... Mr. Schmidt came rushing out and luckily for me went down the opposite way toward the auditorium, so he didn t see me. Shaking, I waited a few minutes and then went in and grabbed my bag and fled from the room. Mr. Boone looked up when I came in but didn t say anything. To this day I don t remember if I got in trouble in P.E. for being late or how I made it through the rest of the afternoon. I went home very sad and cried into my pillow that night so Grandmother wouldn t hear me. It seemed a cruel coincidence that I had overheard that conversation. b The next day when the principal called me into his office I knew what it would be about. He looked uncomfortable and unhappy.

7 Portrait of Patience Escalier (1888), Vincent van Gogh. Oil on canvas. Private collection. Lefevre Fine Art Ltd., London/Bridgeman Art Library. How does the man shown compare with your image of Martha s grandfather? 110 Grandpa knew that I understood it was not a matter of money. It wasn t that. He went back to hoeing the weeds that sprang up between the delicate little bean plants. It was a time-consuming job; sometimes the small shoots were right next to each other. Finally he spoke again as I turned to leave, crying. Then if you pay for it, Marta, it s not a scholarship jacket, is it? Tell your principal I will not pay the fifteen dollars. e I walked back to the house and locked myself in the bathroom for a long time. I was angry with Grandfather even though I knew he was right, and I was angry with the Board, whoever they were. Why did they have to change the rules just when it was my turn to win the jacket? Those were the days of belief and innocence. It was a very sad and withdrawn girl who dragged into the principal s office the next day. This time he did look me in the eyes. What did your grandfather say? I sat very straight in my chair. He said to tell you he won t pay the fifteen dollars. The principal muttered something I couldn t understand under his breath and walked over to the window. He stood looking out e MAKE INFERENCES Why won t Martha s grandfather pay the money for the jacket? 230 unit 2: analyzing character and point of view

8 at something outside. He looked bigger than usual when he stood up; he was a tall, gaunt man with gray hair, and I watched the back of his head while I waited for him to speak. f Why? he finally asked. Your grandfather has the money. He owns a two-hundred acre ranch. I looked at him, forcing my eyes to stay dry. I know, sir, but he said if I had to pay for it, then it wouldn t be a scholarship jacket. I stood up to leave. I guess you ll just have to give it to Joann. I hadn t meant to say that, it had just slipped out. I was almost to the door when he stopped me. Martha wait. I turned and looked at him, waiting. What did he want now? I could feel my heart pounding loudly in my chest and see my blouse fluttering where my breasts should have been. Something bitter and vile tasting was coming up in my mouth; I was afraid I was going to be sick. I didn t need any sympathy speeches. He sighed loudly and went back to his big desk. He watched me, biting his lip. Okay. We ll make an exception in your case. I ll tell the Board, you ll get your jacket. g I could hardly believe my ears. I spoke in a trembling rush. Oh, thank you, sir! Suddenly I felt great. I didn t know about adrenalin 3 in those days, but I knew something was pumping through me, making me feel as tall as the sky. I wanted to yell, jump, run the mile, do something. I ran out so I could cry in the hall where there was no one to see me. At the end of the day, Mr. Schmidt winked at me and said, I hear you re getting the scholarship jacket this year. His face looked as happy and innocent as a baby s, but I knew better. Without answering I gave him a quick hug and ran to the bus. I cried on the walk home again, but this time because I was so happy. I couldn t wait to tell Grandpa and ran straight to the field. I joined him in the row where he was working, and without saying anything I crouched down and started pulling up the weeds with my hands. Grandpa worked alongside me for a few minutes, and he didn t ask what had happened. After I had a little pile of weeds between the rows, I stood up and faced him. The principal said he s making an exception for me, Grandpa, and I m getting the jacket after all. That s after I told him what you said. Grandpa didn t say anything; he just gave me a pat on the shoulder and a smile. He pulled out the crumpled red handkerchief that he always carried in his back pocket and wiped the sweat off his forehead. Better go see if your grandmother needs any help with supper. I gave him a big grin. He didn t fool me. I skipped and ran back to the house whistling some silly tune. 3. adrenalin (E-drDnPE-lGn): a hormone that speeds up the heartbeat and increases bodily energy.
