invitation, she says, "excuse me
please. T am sitting this dance
Mr. Wrong feels as if he is
the party himself, so he just
snatches a girl from her seat to
dance with. Miss Wrong may tell I
a boy she doesn't want to dance'
but her knight in s.hining ar

goes swirling with him.
Remember girls. Miss Right
doesn't smoke on the streets, '
she always t.hanks her escort af
ter each date. She doesn't talk
loudly in public places nor does
she fail to say "thank you" for
a favor, however trivial. No
girls. Miss Right isn't a flirt.

the street. Even if there are two
girls, he still walks on the out

lady’s arm when she needs as

the picture in a different light.
He feels that he should walk
where he wants to and if there
are two girls he could not pos

middle, of course he has to make
it look balanced. In fact, he has
to put his arms around the girls
to hold them up.

"Wonder what's up'.’," Alfred
asked Nick, as they were' on
their way home from school,
"Don't know." replied Nick, as
he stopped to pick up his Geome
try book, "but 1 have the stran
gest feeling that something is
going to happen.'' "O.h. don't be
so melodramatic. Nick." laugh
ed Alfred. They both laughed
together trying to shake off the
uneasy feeling that had been
creeping r)ver them all day, but
they wer-en't successful.

Walkers' home, Delois has re
gained enough energy and cour
age to rise on lu'r feet and sil
ently go out into the jmrd to
ward the object whic.h has
caused so much damage,. As she
walks out into the yard closer
and closer to the strange ob
ject. she stops suddenly and
thinks — "What am I doings"
"Suppose there is something
evil about this object?’' "Can it
be possible that'.’’' "Oh nol She
quickly throws herself down on
her stomach and crawls to the
nearest tree where she quickly
hides herself behind it. When
.she looks up she finds that she
has a very good view from where
she is lying. To her amaze
ment it is of the oddest color
and style. But her amazement
soon leaves for her eyes are
focused on a bright light and
the size,of an electric light bulb
which is rapidly growing larger
and soon manages to vibrate the
outer surface of the object. It
then stands on the outside of the
ship and stands facing Mr.
Walkers' garage. The creature to
her astonishment stands practi
cally ten feet in height and re
sembles the features of an apc'.
It stands looking at the garage
and his eyes seem to turn to red
fire in its head and soon the

Man has learned very’ slowly
to understand the world about '
him. For many thousands of
years, strange or mysterious
events or circumstances troubled
or frightened him. He believed
they were caused by good or evil
forces, which could be con
trolled if he -had the power to
do so. These beliefs now no
longer held, are called super-
stitutions. Ihe word means thal
which stand above, or survivies.
Present-day science believes
that everything in nature has a
natural cause, and a knowledge
of nature's law helps to explain
every cause and effect. Scienti
fic men arrive at this conviction
through observation and reason.
Scientific thinking helps de
All people use the scientific
method to some extent. But
many superstitions notions and
customs persist. Some of these
are odd or amusing, and many
of them are harmless. Even at
! best such superstititons show on
! uncritical attitude of mind and
some of them are harmful.
