This is a railroad story and in order to thoroughly catch the spirit of the rails, Director Walter Lang had a huge locomotive bell on the set When qtilet was desired the hell wan rung once. When noisca were allowed, it was rnng twice. Instead of "camera'' and 'cut" to start and stop action, J.ang directed William Boyd, Johyna Ralston and other members of the cast with a conductor's whistle. One blast meant "stop," two meant "go ahead." ' In the story of "The Night Flyer" Mb. Boyd la seen as a courageous locomotive fireman who wlna a mall contract for his company.

Spearman and the adapta tion was the work of Walter Woods. In addition to the feature story there will be a news reel and a comedy guaranteed to please all who delight in seeing the funny side of ' life.

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 3 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.
