Public Address System Suffering
From Many Years of Service
In the morning several weeks
ago, at exactly eight thirty-five
o’clock, ncithing happened! Now
this wouldn’t be so unusual except
that something was supposed to
be heard. Everyone was expect
ing the daily announcements. But
instead of devotional music they
saw, felt, and heard absolutely
That morning wasn’t the first
time the public address system
had an attack of rheumatism, and
it probably won’t be the last either.
For twenty-five years that faith
ful machine has sei-ved Junior
High, making announcements about
everj«thing from the honor roll
students to the ones in detention
hall. Its duty has been done.
In recent years the P. A. system
has had to be overhauled many
times. The same wiring has re
mained in Junior High that was
there when it was built. Those
hundreds of tiny wires have stuck
together in different places, caus
ing the whole system to short and
not work. A simples definition of
this trouble would be just plain
Even with its rheumatism and
broken parts, the public address
system gets most of the messages
through with only a little coax
ing from the announcer. But
would feel better to be on the safe
side. So, if anyone has a P. A.
system lying around not being
used, please lend it to the school.
It will cei-tainly be most “hear-
