CHEERFUL CHERUB SAYS:
“My work just worried me today
So that I couldn’t do my best
Until I liad this lovely thought;
The world can stand it if I rest.”
‘BE MY VALENTINE”
Once on a time there was a man
which had six daughters, one was
named Face, and one was named
Soap and one was named Charcoal.
jS’ow' one of the little girls had such
black hair that her father called her
Little Eed. The papa he wuz ride
on a three legged bycicle and Little
Red was ride on the hood so her pa
was call her Little Red Riding on
the hood. Now one day Little Red’s
mama was call her and telling her
that her grannia which lived in the
valley on yon hill was sick and could
not cook her some breakfast for
dinner so little Red must carry her
this basket of buckets for supper
(they wus related to the Goat fam
ily). So little Red wus put on her
little green ear muffins and start
over the hill to her granma’s in the
vally and they wus a old wolf (may
be it was the big bad wolf) aweb-
bing his way through the field and he
was a-spid-er and he asked her,
“Where am I going are you?” and
little Red was a-telling him that she
was carrj'ing her granma a basket
of buckets for supper on account
of she was sick and could not cook
her some breakfast for dinner, and
when little unsuspecting Red got
there she said, “Oh grandmaw what
big eyes you have.” “The better
to hear you with my dear.” “Oh
grandmaw what big mouth you
have.” “Tlie better to see you with
my dear.” “Oh grannie what big
ears you have” “The better to eat
you with.” and he was going to eat
lier without even saying the bless
ing but just then a bird walked in
(T guess it must have l)een Admiral
Bird), and hit the wolf over the head
with a pole (T guess it was tlie South
Pole). Xow my eliildren the moral
of this story is that a bird in the
bush gathers no moss. Xity nite.

REAL PEOPLE
Miss Likes
-4*
i
February may chill our toes but it
warms our hearts because it brings
ttirec anniversaries of pleasant im
port. Lincoln’s birthday is less of
a patriotic oceasion than it used to
be and more of a time for cherishing
the common human |ualities. Wash
ington’s birthday too, reminds us
of a figure who as years pass seems
to gain in stature and kindliness.
Shall we be thought irreverent if,
with these national lieroes we rank
Valentine, who slyly slips his special
event in between their birthdays^
Til his honor there is no closing o#
banks, shops, and schools. No need.
He is remembered at all hours of
day and night from cliildhood thro
sentimental teens to old age.
Our first recollection of Valentine
celebration was at the age when,
having tired of the Christmas doll,
we began early in .lanuary to haunt
Kresses in quest of boxes of \ alen-
tines to be made. After many tedious
hours we proudly o.vhibited the fin
ished product—a gluey, dirtied lace
heart with “,T Love you” laborious
ly iirinted across its red surface.
The real tlirill was yet to come—the
delivering. What was ever more
fun than slipping up on a playmate’s
|iorch, hastih' tucking the ma.ster-
pieee of a missive under the door,
and with a ring of the doorbell dash
ing away into the bushes?
Then came school days and the
gailv decorated Valentine boxes
stuffed with fancy, elaborately
versed greetings adorned with
plump, pink cupids and snow white
doves. In those days our chief con
cern was whether or not we would
get as many as Mary and whether
or not we would get as many
‘ ‘ bought ones ’ ’ as the teacher.
Following were the serious days
when we worried lest he would for
get the Valentine and the days when
we debated the advisability of send
ing him one and the propriety of
signing it “Guess Who?”

LINCOLN’S BIRTHDAY
FEBRUARY 12TH
(CONTINUED FROM PAGE ONE)
always very polite. Abrahanl was
forced to cut his expressions short
because of the scarcity of jyaper in
the Lincoln household. This lack
was a style-forming factor which
may account for the concise com-
pactne.ss of his later writings.
As a lawyer, Lincoln was no
“hick.” Ho rose to the front rank
in Illinois. His common sense, his
shrewdness, and his effectiveness be
fore a jury won him fame. In the
“Duff” Armstrong case, he success
fully defended a murder charge by
using an almanac to refute testi
mony regarding moonlight on the
Tiight of the murder. Lincoln was
called in by the McCormick Reaper
Co. when it protested against in
fringements of its patents. This
case was tried in the federal court
at Cincinnati, and wiiile on this case
Lincoln suppres.sed his feelings when
snubbed by eastern attorneys. Later,
.ns President, he appointed one of
these—Staunton—to his cabinet.
Tn the election of 1800 Lincoln
did not rcceive a single popular vote
in ten Southern states. His own
county in Illinois voted against him.
He was chasen president by j)lur-
alities in enough states for electoral
majority but as for whole pojmlar
vote, he was a minority President.
When he was forming his cabinet,
Lincoln wished to include a repre
sentative from the South. .He ap
proached .lohn A. Gilmer of North
Carolina, but he was disappointed in
this. - •
During the civil war Lincoln
studied militarj- works, all about
strategy, campaign plans, battle
plans, etc. In 18(i2 he considered
taking the field himself.
Lincoln took- no regular exercise
as President. When under great
strian, as he was during the Battle
of the Wilderness, he could not eat
or sleep, and black rings were no
ticed under liis eyes.
.Abraham Lincoln’s mental relaxa
tion was found in humorous stories
and in the repetition of favorable
literary ])assages. The poem “Oh
Why Should the Spirit of Mortal
be Proud,” had a peculiar fascina
tion for him. Laughter was an abso
lute need of his harassed mind. His
People often miss a great deal in
life by gazing across fields and
mountains far into the distance—
so far, in fact that they lose sight
entirely of the beauty around their
own door, steps. Look around you
here in our own Salem campus. Do
you realize how many extraordinary
persons there are right here living
among us day by day? And have
you ever considered how very little
you actually know of many of the
people among whom you live — of
their experiences, activities, and in
terests?
One unusual person we should like
to help you know better is Miss
Likes. Many students see her only
as a neat, white-uniformed, business
like, systematic, and efficient nurse
at the infirmary. They appreciate
hor abilities and her services, but,
somehow, they fail to see her as an
individual who has lived a full and
extremely interesting life.
After completing her training at
Hlessing Hospital in Quincy, Illinois,
Miss Likes did private duty nursing
in Quincey and at Wenatchee, Wash
ington. From there she went to
Seattle where she did post-graduate
work in the Firland Tubercular Sani-
torium. Not satisfied with the above
fields of activity. Miss Likes spent
one summer in Juno, .Maska, at St.
Elizabeth’s Hospital, .luno, accord
ing to Miss Likes, is a very
l>lea.sant town, similar to American
cities, the Catholic hospital was an
excellent one, and the summer sea
son was extremlj- delightful. The
flowers and vegetables were par
ticularly luxuriant and In-autiful
throughout the entire season.
Returning to the United States,
she spent some time in Johnston
(Mty, Tenn. at the tubercular sana
torium, and then she returned to
Quincey varying her work by nurs
ing at the State Soldier’s Home.
Following a stay at the Hoi>emont
Tubercular Sanatorium in West
Virginia, Miss Likes retu/ned to
Illinois again, Ottawa this time,
where she was Public Health Nurse.
.\fter a period of nursing at St.
Cloud Hospital in Orlando, Florida,
she changed to school work at the
same place.
I’articularly interesting, as well,
was her position as nurse at the
Mountain Park Institute, Located
some fifty miles from Winston-
Salem, with which many students
are acquainted, There and at Crook
ed Oak School near Mt. Bethel, Miss
Likes rendered invaluable service
both to the students and faculty of
the schools and to the mountain
people themselves. Through her
excellent work in these two places
Miss Likes became known at Salem,
where she is now spending her fifth
year.
Throughout her entire nursing
career, Miss Likes has given lier
whole self to her work. Even on
vacations, when asked she has will
ingly forgotten herself and filled in
to help friends. Altogether, she is
an extremely interesting and won
derful person—always ready and
eager to help and sincere in her in
terest and desire to enter into the
schools activities. Furthermore, and
not to be sneezed at either she has a
delightful sense of humor and her
supply of stories relating to her
work and experience is unusually
irge and varied.

young Salemites for his favor, Lelia
Williams and Louise Preas.
