Lewis, where they have been
aiding in the military training,
visited the school and spoke to
the student body. While Cap

piause attested the appreciatio
lrom the students lor both.
un Tuesday an assembly was
called during the seventh per
lod at which Police Sergeant
Frank Irvine spoke on "Safety
First" precautions in the street
tratlic. I he lecture was illus
tratcd by stcrcoptican slides
Sergeant Irvine impressed th
students by the earnestness in
which he snoke of his work nni
by the plans he is using to makt-
the roads "sale" for both th
autoists and pedestrians.

fire was built nominally for the
purpose of roasting wienies.
Wcnins in all shades of brown
and black, marshmcllows and

luncheon the class went to the
Domestic Science room where
thoy told their fortunes by flup.

that their "fates" vary from
tall, dark and handsome to
piquant, blonde and handsome.
Ono unfortunate, however, by
turning his flapjack to the floor
proved his case to be "hope

all proudly wearing their class

is especially pleasing and has
been adopted us standard for at

is, 'Do you want a live State? Vote for
