SEUCA SCHOOL IS
SCENE OF PROGRAM
One of the most delightful affairs
of the season was staged at the
Selica School house, Tuesday evening
under the supervision and direction
of Joe Bryson.
The program consisted of interest
ing dialogues and excellent music
provided by Bill Parker, Edmond
Johnson, Frank Fenwick, Ralph
Benison, Ray Bracken and Cicero
The most amusing feature of the
evening's program was a cake
march in which nearly 25 couples
participated.- This cake march is an
interesting game which has been pop
ular for very many years. Tne
participants line up in a circle hand
in hand and revolve several times
first pne way and then ahother with
some blindfolded person in the cen
ter of the ring". After sometime the
blindfolded ope drops a handkerchief
down near the edge of the ring and
the lucky one to whom the handker
chief is nearest receives the cake as
a prize. The winners of the cake were

Least Anxiety - -
A GREAT DEAL is printed in the news
papers these days about commodity
prices and their descent, but electric
ity', also a commodity, according to the poet
Emerson, has descended in price since the
early days to such an extent that its ser
vice to the housewife is available in con
tinued new avenues of usefulness. Emerson
says: "Under the general name 'com
modity,' I rank all those advantages which
our senses owe to nature," and is not
electricity one of God's greatest gifts to
man, whose inventive genius has made
it possible to light the humblest home?
My own experience as a housewife with
these bright lights is that in burning four
of them through entire nights for a month,
the cost has been only $1.20 for the month,
and during an absence of three months
from my home, two lights burning con
stantly, day and night, brought a bill no
larger than $3.50.
The housewife would like to know what
this public agitation on the cost of elec
tricity is all about. Taxation is the great
est of her worries, the cost of electricity
the least of her anxieties.
