POLING ADDRESSES STUDENTS
Splendid Word ArOpM Interest
and Cood Fading
. The Oregon State College is lead
ing Dr. D. V. Poling as a representa
tive to the leading schools of the
sate. He paid us an official visit
Friday afternoon, delivering an ad
dress which furnished food for
thought to each one who, heard blot.
His words' were not lightly taken nor
will they be forgotten. He spoke
briefly upon college education, de
claring it not necessary to happiness
but an asset to persons who were
able financially and mentally, to
obtain a degree. Competition is in
creasing the chances of securing
high-salaried positions; the difficulty
will increase as 'time goes on because
more and more people are equipping
thnr rves with that rate of efficiency.
The essence of his address covered
quotations from an American author,
Henry Van Dyke. These guide posts
were i We should despise nothing ex
cept falaene s and meanness; "We
should covet nothing of our neigh
bor's except his kindness of heart and
gentleness of nature" "Be governed
by your likes and not your dislikes"
"Think often of your friends and
seldom of your enemier."
The speaker impressed these quo
tations upon our minds by many com
parisons. We were honored by his tim and
advice, and hope that we may again
have the privilege of listening to
man so well-known for his judgment
and leadership. In addition, we feel
that we were highly complimented by
the many who attended the assembly.
Tho Rd Poppy lo Be off Sale Son
Jean Renick of the Sixth grade
submits the following essay in the
contest conducted by the Ladies'
auxllliary of the Legion for the best
eawiy written by grade children on
the subject of the "Red Poppy."
This means h taken to make known
the significance of the red poppies
wljich will soon be offered, for sale
by the Ladies' Auxiliary. .,
"In Flanders Fields . the poppies
bloom." Must it not be a beautiful
sight in Flanders Fields? The little
red poppies grow all over the graves
in Flanders Fields. The boys and
men that shed blood on these fitlds
are remembered by these poppies.
The mothers, wives and sweethearts
of these boyc and men remember
them by the red poppy. It is a very
sad but beautiful story. The petals
of he poppy stand for the blood of
the men and boysthat died fighting
for our freedom. The center stands
for the bravery and valor of the boys
and men. The stem and leaves re
mind us of the pain and hardships
Peaches For Pleasure
W HIS. season we buy peaches
III (or economy, but we also buy
them for pleasure, for who
doesn't like the flavor of this
golden fruit which came out oi
Asia to give pleasure to the Occi
dental races? And there are so
many ways, to serve canned
peaches that there is no reason
why a case of them can't be
standing in the storeroom all the
time, ready to add its delightful
touch to the dinner.
A few suggestions for using the
4 peaches are given below:
For a cocktail, line a cocktail
glass .with 'sliced peaches; fill
center with-a mixture of diced,
canned pears, pieces of grapefruit
and milice d Maraschino cherries.
' Fill glass with peach svrup and
top with a Maraschino cherry.
For & Peach Sunflower Salad,
blend a three-ounce package of
cream cheese with two tablespoons
mavonaaise. Hear tn the center
of six beds of lettuce. Arrange
that they had to endure.
So in memory of the boys and men,
t'.e invalids, the men that came back
shell shocked or minus an arm or leg
make paper poppies while in bed or
in an arm chair at the hospital. The
American Legion auxiliary buy these
popples for one cent each from the
men. Then they sell them each for
a dime. The money received from the
sales to help the invalids of the war
and their families.. So these little
popples have a story after all.
