In class rooms, and in halls.

Sweet thoughts come surging
In our fevered mind.
And link themselves to future days
With hopes and fears that bind.

PROF. WHITAKER SPEAKS
AT ROTARY LUNCHEON
In His Talk on “The Romance of Oak
Ridge,” He Sketches History
of the Institution
“The cause of education is the cause
of America; education with a heart and
conscience,” said Prof. T. E. Whitaker
in a talk to the Rotarians, Tuesday,
March 29th. “The Romance of Oak
Ridge” was his subject. The school
was settled about 1720, and though the
owners had much trouble with inter
ruptions made by war, and fire, the
school was finally definitely founded.
The professor concluded his speech with
the words: “The manhood, the spirit,
and the achievement, that has passed
out of Oak Ridge has made me proud

GEESE FROM OTHER
THE THREE R’S
The subjects in the early grades,
Seemed quite hard to me.
And in Headin’, ’Ritin’, ’Rithmetic,
My highest was a D.
I pestered teacher all day long;
I guess she wasn’t all.
The girl who sat in front of me
Would always start to bawl.
M-hen I would pull her golden curls.
Or drop ink in her hair, .
Or stick a pen-point in her back.
You’d hear her everywhere.
She’d holler till the teacher came
And with her came a rule;
And after giving me some whacks.
She’d keep me after school.
I drew her picture on the board;
When asked I said, not I;
She told me of George Washington,
Who never told a lie.
She told me a story
About a cherry tree.
It seemed he got away, though,
By using honesty.
I got a hatchet of my own,
And cut our apple tree;
It didn’t work the same with pa,
He put me on his knee.
So now I’m rather careful
Of the stories teachers tell.
And when she told the cherry tree,
You should have heard me yell—
“SEND IT IN”
If you have a bit of news.
Send it in;
Or a joke that will amuse.
Send it in.
A story that is true.
An incident that’s new.
We want to hear from you,
So send it in.
Never mind the style
If the news is worth the while,
It may help or cause a smile.
Send it in.
