It’s funny how disappointed we
; when photographs of ourselves
5 merely perfect likenesses!
We wonder wliy it is that girls
who don’t even support their class
IS—much less play on a team—-
around shouting, “We won;
!!" What right have they to
gloat over a victory in which they
liave had no part? If they even fur
nish lustv verba! encouragement to
their more active class-mates they
deserve some share of the glory; but
not so when tliey remain disinterest
ed unti Ithey think they can claim a
little praise. Your class needs a
few supporters. (Note: Not a gar

A CHALLENGE
The Efficiency System which has
been introduced into college life thii
year is a most helpful one of which
wc may well be proud. It is based
on sound principles of health and
those who take advantage of it gain
genuine pleasure in retui

Body for it,, success Ther- ar
three reasons which explain just wh;
every girl should maintain a higi
standard of efficiency each week
The first is a need of regular exer
eise. Two hours of it a week will
make anyone feel and look better.
(Don’t forget the latter point,
girls I) Next we should consider it
necessary to the best type of class
loyalty. Tliere should be very close
competition to make it interesting.
And finally, we must think of all the
enjoyment which each participant

PARAGRAPHICS
Mr. Anderson, assigning exampb
in mathematics concerning imagin
ary numbers, said, “Now when you
go to the board be careful about your
‘i’s (eyes?) and handle them right!”
We wonder if this was a subtle at
tempt at self-preservation?
Now that the Home-Ec’ students
have begun selling food and have
thus invaded the territory of the
Juniors and Seniors—according to
Economics—1 competition should
lower the price of sandwiches. (Here
originates another exception). Be
fore many more months, unless our
wills become stronger tlian our ap
petites, this will be known as the
Fat Girls’ Institute.
We suggest that Yo-Yoing be in
cluded in the list of sports on the
Efficiency Cards. 100% in all
classes guaranteed.
The Seniors could easily increa.se
the Senior treasury by charging un
derclassmen a fee for service ren
dered in journeys to and from the
drug stores.
Wouldn’t you like to see Mary
Brewer impersonating I.ouis XI and
Quentin Durward for the edification
of ninth grade pupils at R. J. R.
High School?
How versatile college makes us!
By Christmas time we will qualify
equally well as fine laundry women
or department store clerks.
Like Edgar Allen Poe, the stud
ents who grapple with English 7
will leave to posterity numerous un
finished literary masterpieces. (It’s
pathetically hard on posterity, but
much easier on Dr. Willoughby.)
Buy your tickets for “The Hidden
Guest” nozf. (They are “going
fast.”) Any Senior will be delight
ed to procure one for you.
TELEPHONES
It was a pliantom of delight, all
riglit, when first it hove into our
sight (with due apologies to the
poet)—tliat new telephone booth.
Think how it will lessen the .strain
on impatient lovers, eager mothers,
and reluctant hostesses! Tlien, too,
there is ye college student who will
not have to wait for Leila, “Libba,”
Kathleen, or any other long-winded
conversationalist. All of the girls
are delighted that out-of-town calls
will no longer necessarily interfere
with local calls. The new phone is
However, what good does it do
Miss Stipe? It saves her absolutely
no ste))s; and she has more ’phone
calls than anybody. Also, the girls
from Lehman and Society have to
ay over to Alice Clewell in
. telephone. It seems that
tiiese people deserve some eonsider-
n too. We sincerely !u)pe that by
e means additional telephones
be procured for Salem very soon.
Over in Charlotte the arguments
the Gastonia trial have begun.
Hoey represents the State and Mc
Call the defense. Both sides have
veral witnesses and are putting up
strong plea.
Way out in Seattle, Washington,
yen were killed and fifteen wound
ed when an old hotel burned. The
cause of the fire is not known.
The United States is fighting the
Mediterranean fruit fly. President
Hoover is expected to make a liberal
appropriation for this fight.
In Washington Earl Sande, the
■ountry’s premier jockey, is taking
singing lessons. When his jockey
days are over Sande will have some
thing to look forward to.
Japan, Australia, Columbia, Ar
gentina, Valencia and Spain are be
ginning to rebuild their roads. The
roads of former days were built for
the horse and mule age. Today, the
day of automobiles, we need wider
and better roads. The above men
tioned countries are beginning to
construct roads like ours, here In
America. It is believed that the
U. S. has the best roads to meet the
requirements in these days.
Life isn’t always true to fiction.
Out in Minneapolis Mrs. Paul Gil
bert has been reading detective stor
ies. She decided she could get by
with a robbery. She tried and
caught. She stated it wasn’t because
she needed the money but because
she thought she could outwit the
police. The story in fiction would
have read—she needed money badly;
she confessed and was allowed to re-
turn home free.
Sometimes something a little un
usual happens. Here is ours for to
day. A snake was the cause of a
porch collapsing. Down in Quitnaan,
Ga., the other day, this happened—
A pupil came running in with the
•ry that a snake was outside. The
luperintendent rushed out
and all the students followed. The
‘ombined weight was too much for
the porch and it fell. Several wer«
injured. The snake disappeared, i1
was believed unhurt.
Music hour will be held on Thurs
day afternoon at 3:45 in Memorial
At this time Mr. Vardell will
continue his lecture on the “History
of the Opera.”
Pay day for the school budget is
Thursday, October 24. This is
exactly two months before Christ-

I heard in the night a faint e
As of dry leaves in a fire.
I looked and I saw a broken-
kite
Caught on a telegraph wire
The carrion wind was eating
Of paper and paste and string,
Its gossamer wings moaned low that
Flight more than anything.
I heard in my heart a small break
ing sound
As of old, thin silver crushed.
And I knew, oh, I knew that a dn
had died
And my singing soul was hu.shed.
The vulture of grief was gnawing its
Those wings that could attain
The heights that are higher than
song, and I knew
That they never would soar again.
A kite that has sailed in the wide,
blue sky,
A dream that had flown too high!

F orget-me-nots,
Just tiny spots
Of blue.
This little spray
It will convey
What words may fall.
Ne’er can avail
To tell.
Then flowers blue
Will speak to you,
And spell:
“Remember me
When this you see.”
They say
The rime is old
But when it’s told
Today
It will be new.
This message true,
I send
To find a part
Within your heart,
My friend.
