JUST A FLURRY
About second period in 205 a
few days ago you should have seen
all the lads and lassies trucking up
to the things that you look through.
They were looking at the feathers
Mother Nature was picking from
her geese. Someone suggested read
ing “Snowbound,” but as Miss Car
ter said it was not suitable for the
occasion since we were nowhere
near being snowbound. We read
something that was more ap
propriate. Here's hoping the next
snow will last longer than the
little flurry we had the other day
so we can have more excitement

If you were given your choice of

looks, money, or talent, which
would you choose? Thtre is one of

They are a letter of credit the

I like to see it snow.
In Winter or in Fall,
But oh! I don’t like to get hit
In the eye with a snowball.
And as my story goes I say,
I woke up on a winter day.
My mother said the snow was

AN AQUARIUM IN NO, 207
HUTCHEN’S FOOD STORE
In room No. 207 the pupils have
made an aquarium. They have male
and female fantail goldfish and a
few tropical fish.
They also have in the aquarium
some oxygenating plants including
the Myriophyllum Prosperpinacoides,
commonly known as the Parrot
Feather. The Eichhornia Azurea or
the Purple Water Hyacinth and
Vallisneria spiralis or Ribbon grass.
The scavengers are clams, Japa
nese snails, tadpoles, pond snails,
and geographic turtles. If 'you are
interested in the aquarium come
around to room No. 207 and see it.
The boys in room 205 are proud
of their unusually good attendance
during the fourth month. They had
perfect attendance except for one
This aroused interest between
the boys and girls, so now they

lose, they will have to take the
boys to the show.

On January 20, a chapel pro
gram was given by the girls’ In
dustrial Arts classes under the di
rection of Miss Adams. The aim
and theme of the program were to
show the appropriate dress for
different occasions. After the devo
tional, which was led by Estelle
Frith, the curtains were drawn and
Bobby Lindsay, dressed as an old-
fashioned gii'l, and Betty Jean
Miller, dressed as a modern girl
wore discovered discussing the
clothing' of the two diiferent pe
riods. The modern girl proved by
showing modern clothes worn in
the home economics department
that the clothing worn today is
more appropriate for different oc
casions such as school, sports,
church, and evening.
The program was concluded with
a play entitled Art in Dress. Largo
posters showed correct and incor
rect parts of costumes worn by
girls in the clothing class.
