started to run back and was struck by
the fender of the car. His little head
was crushed, one leg and one arm
broken, the latter in two places, and
the little life passed on soon after,
without any suffering or pain.

are a mighty progressive community
and can accomplish much. Plans are
now on foot for the establishment of
a night school for all adults on the
project. Courses will be announced
soon and if there be sufficient inter

week for eight or ten weeks with the
teachers and Mr. Dillabaugh, janitor,
offering their services free. A mim
eograph questionnaire is to be sent

parents might like to take and those
to be offered. This would be a won
derful thing and give many of us an

gotten questions and subjects.

EIGHT YEARS OF PEACE
As suddenly as they began the cannons' hellish roar was stilled the flames of hate and
fury were quenched and the blood red clouds of the most titanic struggle the world has ever
known rolled away. -
November the Eleventh is Armistice Day the birthday of universal peace.
Let us celebrate this day in a fitting way, let us rejoice, but let us not forget our fallen
sons who gave their all, that you and I might live in peace, harmony and happiness.
