When the subject of the gymnas

wonder why Boardman wants a gym.
and if they really need one; Let's
pause and consider. Yes, they need
one. The students are working hard
er in their classes so they may play
in tha games given by t',e school. If
they do not get a gcod average in
their grades they are not allowed to
take part in such games.
Do the children of today have less
or more knowledge granted them in
school than they did when you were
in school? Yes, they have, It takes
physical strength as well as mental to
Work their way thru school.
Aren't the people of today going
Ahead, or are they remaining the
aatne and playing the old games, as
dare-base, blackmail, etc. Of course
these are good games and are
strength-builders as long as the
weather is agreeable for them to be
played outdoors, but just pause and
think again, winter comes once a
year and is it very strengthening to
get wet and cold throwing snow balls
until one's hands are almost frozen?
During the winter the children
need a more comfortable place to
play. I wonder what a neighboring
school would say if we ask them to
come here and play basket ball in
the snow? Answer this question for
It is said by many people that
schools are going too mucho for ath
letics, but aren't we sending away
from our schools higher educated
minds than those of the days gone by.
Your child would be ashamed to
!hlnk he could attend a game but
wouldn't because he didn't know any
thing about it.
It Is said that the world is grow
ing weaker and wiser. So let's build
a gymnasium and give the children
a Chance to develop their muscles as
well as their brain.
Let's all get behind a gym., push
it forward and put up a good one to
compare favorably with the school
building and make it last.
Electricity and Steam
By ALTON KLITZ
For the last ten years electricity
has gradually taken the place of
-team in large factories, ocean-going
vessels and battleships.
Not long ago in a lest conducted
by (he railroads, one electric locomo
tive was connected with two huge
Moguls, a large type of steam loco
motive, These were given the start and
inaned the electric engine for several
hundred feet, then the engineer
i urned on the current and the Mo
guls began to puff. As the speed de
X eased the engineers opened the
hroltles and the exhausts of the
-teSm engines grew louder until (hey
seemed to split (he air
This strange, silent monster had
the engines to a standstill and was
lorcing them both back against the
pressure of their own steam.
This test proved that electricity is
more powerful than steam, and as
Mjon as (he hydro-electric plant is
completed at Umatilla you will see
engines running on the Fnion l'acitlc
that will look like that one used In
hat historic contest.

A few weeks ago I was Invited to
Stay for a few days with a friend. My
mission I am credited with being of
the "happy-and-brtght" type was to
cheer her up. She wasn't exactly ill,
but she was nervous and depressed.
Life seemed not to bold the slightest
attraction for her. Yet she was well
off, and was in the enviable position of
being able to gratify any reasonable
j wish or want.

knew what it was. White!
My bedroom was white furniture,
curtains, toilet ware, wail paper. The
floor was linoloumed and the dominant
color wus white. The two rug were
white. The only thing In the room
that wasn't white was my own
piece of soHp.
