LAUGH
Build for yourself a strong box,
Fashion each part with care;
Fit it with hasp and padlock.
Put all your troubles there.
Hide therein all of your failures.
And each bitter cup you quaff;
Lock all your heart-aches within it.
Then sit on the lid and laugh.
Tell no one of its contents.
Never its secrets share;
Drop in your cares and worries.
Keep them forever there.
Hide them from sight so completely.
The world will never dream half;
Fasten the top down securely,
Then sit on the lid and laugh.

Classes in
Physical Testing
As part of their training in Vocation
al School a series of classes in Physical
Testing has been inaugurated by Mar
shall Field & Company.
The first class was started on Janu
ary 18th and Vocational School students
are showing much interest in this novel
addition to their training.
The course, which is under the direc
tion of J. F. Byrd, head of Physical and
Chemical Laboratory, is being carried
out by William Barksdale, and gives
the students an opportunity to learn
something about the testing that is be
ing done in our laboratories.
The Training Department in suggest
ing this course feels that this innova
tion has possibilities in building better
understanding between the Vocational
School, the students, and the Marshall
Field Organization, as well as a long
step forward in training future students
in the production and quality control of
textile goods.
