[Newbies] Quinto Game Example Code Not Working

I'm working through the Squeak by Example book and ran into a snag. The code on
page 33 for the Quinto game is returning an error message.
I have the SBECell selected and "-- all --" is highlighted in the right pane,
just like in the book, but it responds with the message "Unknown variable:
initialize please correct or cancel: / declare temp / declare instance /
So I guess it doesn't recognize "initialize" and thinks I'm trying to create a
variable? According to the book it should be recognized.
Here's the code:
self label: ''.
self borderWidth: 2.
bounds := 0 at 0 corner: 16 at 16.
offColor := Color paleYellow.
onColor := Color paleBlue darker.
I even downloaded the code for the book from Squeaksource and pasted it in and
it does the same thing.
Any help would be appreciated.
