troduction to the book on "Charac
ter Education" by Germaine and
Germaine, which is to be studied by
the organization. The book is ex
ceedingly interesting and Mrs.
King's review on the chapter "Char
acter Training in the Home" proved
to be of much interest. Mrs. Titus
was to have reviewed the chapter,
Character Training In the School,
but the hour grew late, so this will
be given at the next meeting. Mrs.
Marschat, Mr. Ransier and Mrs.
Coats were the program commit
tee In charge. After the meeting
the crowd had delicious clam chow
der, sandwiches and coffee. After
this dancing was enjoyed until mid
night The P. T. A. is becoming an or
ganization that is doing actual P.
T. A. work in the community. Our
children are our greatest assets, and
if the P. T. A. as an organization
can sponsor some project looking to
the application of the study of char
acter training in a concrete way
with tangible results, it will not
have been an effort in vain.

Never has a Chevrolet car won greater
praise for its appearance than the new
Chevrolet Six. Its new Fisher bodies
reveal in every detail the artistry that
has made the Fisher name famous
throughout the motor car world. In
beauty of line and color, in balance
and harmony of design, they represent
one of the greatest style triumphs in
Fisher history. Upholsteries are richer
and more durable. The instrument
panel carries a new and more attrac
tive grouping of the control instru
ments. Seats are wider and deeper.
In fact, not a single feature has been
overlooked that would
add to the comfort and
convenience of both
driver and passengers.

It All Depends
"It is impossible for me to save any
money on my present income." No
doubt you have often heard such a
remark. Is it true?
Well, it all depends. Most people
could save SOMETHING, be it ever
so small, if they would give up some
of the things they lead themselves to
think necessary. The trouble is, they
often refuse to deny themselves. They
are not willing to pay the price NOW.
But most of them pay LATER, when
they can ill afford to pay.
