the appearance of her lover. I.ester

AFTER TWO WEEKS OF ALCOHOL
DIET TIPSY BEGAN TO
“Tipsy” has escaped! How? and
where? are the questions in the
minds of the bioloey students. The
cage, his former home, seemingly has
no hole or crevice large enough to
l)erniit the passage of a mouse.. One
student 'Came forth with the sugges
tion that probably after the meal of
alcohol he felt so light and airy that
he breezed right through the wire net
ting which covers his cage. Be that
as it may—he’s gone..
As will be remembered from a pre
ceding article, “Tipsy” was being fed
an increasing amount of alcohol with
his daily bread, while "Topsy” his
brother, was being fed a balanced
diet. At the time of this article there
was no noticeable difference in the
two white mice, but after two weeks
or so “Tipsy” began to show the effect
He didnt grow as fast as “Tonsy”.
The hair about his head began to thin,
and he was even accused of getting
When "Tipsy” escaped, he had got
ten to be a regular “S’ot”; he couldn't
sleep if he missed his unwholesome
supper, and cried for it before break
fast time. Now that he is gone, there
is no way that he can get liouor. The
nuestlon Is: Can he live without it?
Heroic deeds go by every day un-
mentioned. The other night one ha]-
nened in Goldsboro, but few neople
have heard of it.
Lee Miller Ramsey, who lives out
baclc of the park, went home abcut
11:00 on a dark cloudy night. When
he arrived, he found that the front
door was locked, so he started around
to the back. When about half way
around the house, he heard a noise
and on looking up saw two white
forms jump from the windOAV and go
Lee, who was almost killed in the
rush for freedom, made sure that the
crool's had had time to get aw'’,y, and
that his heart had started bentiiig
normally again, rnd that the lead h^^d
left his feet; then he rushed into the
house and called the cops. Tt snowed
hard the next morning—-the coo
caught the crooks at the park gate.

A memorial to Mrs. Edna Crawford
Creech is to be erected in the library.
Mrs. Henry Weil has made a liberal
donation for this cause, i.nd it is ex
pected that others will contribute
from time to time.
The memorial is to consist of a col
lection of books which will be selected
from a list handed in by each teacher.
On the shelf where these books will
be placed, a brass plate engraved with
the inscription: “In Memory of Mrs.
Edna Crawford Creech” will be set.
Mrs. Creech, a deceased member of
the School Board, was one of its out
standing members. As she was inter
ested in all phases of school life, It
was thought that a collection of hooks
on all subjects interesting to high
school students would form a most
fitting memorial to her.

Ralph Brogden, a member of the
Freshman Class, told three of his
beloved book's goodbye when ho said
to the librarian, “ll'ere. Miss Roark,
you are welcome to these.” Ralph
also contributed his books voluntarily.
Upon questioning Miss Ethel Roark,
the librarian, as to how these books
were being received by iTie students,
sho rei)lied ''Why, even before the
books are stamped, students are seen
coming in ;;rguing about who will ho

always out of the library before the
ink on the front labels have ever
dried. It is remarkable to noUre tho
interest of the students.”
