Both sides put up a hard fight, but the
unanimous decision of the judges de

talk, Mrs. Chaffee, of North Dakota,
brought a brief message to the stud

life is a school,” Mrs. Chaffee stated.
“High School and college are but a preji-
aration for bigger things. What you are
in future life depends on how you spend
each day now.”
In discussing state government Mr.
Douglas said that one can’t give his
state whole soul love unless he knows
something about it. He also brought
out the fact that the United States was
dependent on the various states for its
power, rather than they being depend
ent on the union.
“So far as I can learn. North Caro
lina is the only state which does not
grant its governor some form of veto
power,” the speaker stated.

Tlie only way to be^a Christian is by
spiritual birth; Jesus the Divine Son of

will surely be punished.
The best verse in the third chapter of

“For God so loved the world that He
gave His only begotten son, that who
soever believeth in Him should not per

SENIORS GO THROUGH
“TERM PAPER” TRIALS
Teacliers maj’ come and teachers may
go, but term papers go on forever and
ever, amen. Term papers in history,
term papers in English, term papers in
I.atin, and term papers in Sociology.
Will they never cease? The Freshmen
and the Sophomores and the Juniors
look to Seniordom as a land of heavenly
existence. Such blissful ignorance has
the underclassman. Little does he know
of the inside life of a Senior.
Heavenly existence—bah—term papers
are the bane of a Senior’s life. Plain fic
tion is simple; dressed up facts, not
so hard; but cut-an’-dried facts, picked
up from dry,- dusty books—things writ
ten not from inspiration but from ne
cessity,—they are terrible.

by the girls and much interest has been
shown in the election. This year Mary

and proved a most capable one.
ED’S FIFTEEN PENNIES
We wondered why Ed. Mendenhall
had been saving all his pennies here of
late. Now we know. Miss Grogan was
so elated that she let the secret out.
Ed. has sent Miss Grogan a formal in
vitation to have dinner with him at
“Mack’s Place” June 6.
Since it costs more for two to eat than
it does for one, he is forced from a
financial standpoint to save all the pen
nies that he can scrape up. To be certain
that he won’t spend them he keeps them
in a tiny box in “dear teacher’s” desk.
He is doing fine too, for he already has
fifteen pennies, and that will be almost
enough because he has told Miss Grogan
how much she will be allowed to eat.
