BUSY DAYS AT THE
Pupils Collecting Old Papers
To Provide Useful Things

These are busy days at the Gar

are busy there, Diit tnese are
especially busy. If you should
have the good fortune to be In the
building within a few days, go to
the basement and you will find
express wagons lined up in army
array awaiting , their youthful
owners who will presently come
down, and away they will scurry
here and there along the streets.
A tap at the door and a little gen
tleman will ask for your "old pa
pers," and all too gladly we help
pile into these same wagons the
papers and magazines which have
been accumulating in attic and
basement for the past year. Then
back to the school where the pa
pers are unloaded, wagons lined
up, boys gone back to class room,
and through for that day. , A lit
tle later you will find principal
and teachers sorting, piling and
tieing into bundles, and then they
are ready to be sent to some pulp
mill where they will be converted
into paper, again to be collected
another time, and eo on, who can
know how many times?
Hard work? Yes! but teachers
and pupils are seeing something
'eautiful even in these old dirty
papers, for by some strange alche
my there will soon appear a piece
of statuary, a beautiful picture or
mayhap some much coveted book
for the library. These conserva
tionists are not only seeing these
things for their school building,
but they are looking further, and
