Mr. Burgess walked into the assem
bly with a very mysterious air Thurs
day. In one hand he carried some
sacks which he deposited on the floor
in front of the tire chute. Several of
the boys were then asked to go down
the chute in order that it be cleaned.
It wasn't long until a series of bells
sounded and the shouts of "Fire
Drill" were soon heard throughout
the building. This was the first fire
drill since last fall.

Dr. Johnston Gives Talk.
Last Thursday Dr. Johnston gave
a talk to the boys in the assembly.
Mr. Burgess sent all the girls away
lending the excuse that the doctor
was a bashful man. Anyway the girls
wouldn't be interested in the talk on
the Citizens Military Training camp
to be held in Vancouver this summer.
Dr. Johnston explained the purpose
of the camp and earnestly advised the
hoys to go. Then the boys who had
been through the mill before were
called on and gave short talks on dif-
erent topics of the camp amid much
applause. The boys were Merle Beck
et, Marvin (Corporal) Wightman,
Gerald Slocum and Ellis Thomson.

two main purposes, first, to increase
the interest of every mother and fa
