necessary foods and the general food
habits for the school child.
The business of the organization
was then taken up. The two captains
of the teams for new members, Mrs.
W. J. Beamer and Mrs. Geo. Moore,
reported the results of their labor.
Mrs. Beamer's team won, with a total
of eighty-one patrons, who will be
entertained by the losing team. Mrs.
Moore totaled the sum of sixty-one
members, and several yet to pay. The
third grade received the five dollars
in prize for having the most mothers
present. The meeting was the best at
tended of the season.

Football was invented to help re
discover Thanksgiving. The Pilgrim
Fathers had set aside Thanksgiving
as a time for expressing gratitude
for the first season's crops. But
when it was all over and they got
down to brass tacks, they had the
impression that there was not so very
much to be thankful for after all.
The Indians were reds, and our fore
fathers were anxious to keep labor
troubles back until Samuel Gompers
jhould be born; while the maize
crops were amazing, the Swiss chard
was a failure and they raised more
karats than gold. The frost was on
the pumpkin; the ague and nostalgia
appeared in their midst; and they
did not have half enough ancestors
with them they really should have
ancestors; why, there were not suf
ficient ancestors on the May Tag for
half the Camminettis and Floradoras,

A Battle of the Century.
One of the most bloody as well as
enthralling battles of the present
century took place before the school
building Saturday afternoon. The
bloody affray was witnessed by an
appreciative group of spectators, in
cluding Miss Flossie Stender and
Messiuers Stanley Minor and Orrin
Bisbee. Ruth (Flashy) Furlong and
Ellis (Toughy) Thomson were sched
uled for a ten round bout. An ac
count of the fight follows: Thomson
led with two sharp rights, but was
blocked by Furlong. Furlong retal-
iated with a terrific right to the side
of the head. Thomson was slightly
groggy and they fell into a clinch.
When they broke, Furlong fell to the
canvas, but immediately recovered.
She led with a left uppercut, and
followed with a sharp right to the
heart. This was intercepted by
Toughy'i arm, but the result was
disastrous, because the force of the
blow shattered his wrist. The decis
ion was unanimously given to Fur
long, as Thomson was rendered hors
de combat. It might be added, that
a riotous time was had by all.

The Mound Mystery Solved.
Residents near the high school
have been greatly puzzled by the ap
pearance of a huge pile of tires,
boxes and "what nots" this week.
These piles resemble the work of pre
historic mound builders.
The builders themselves were quite
interesting. They were sooty com
plexioned, clad in loose-fitting earthy
garments, and of all shapes and sizes.
Some folks thought they were de
scendants of the Neanderthal race
while others thought they were Pilt-downs.
The World History class made an
investigation only to find the mound
builders were freshm"" collecting
material for the annual bonfire which
will be burned Thursday, November
10th. The frosh are deeply indebted
to the Ferguson Chevrolet company
for the use of a large truck, by
which they were enabled to get the
material upon the hill with the least
exertion or effort.

At the last regular meeting of the

The exact reason its delay la

freshmen to be a proverbably pro

the countryside has been sorely tried
