This year's stunt night will be
the third in succession, and each
of the others has been a decided
success, both from the entertain
ment and financial standpoints.
Each year about sixteen stunts have
appeared on the program, and there
will probably be about that num
ber this year. Some will be musical,
some of a strictly comedy nature,
but certain it is that all of them
will be good. Among other rumors
reaching the ears of the stunt com
mittee is one to the effect that one

a member of the city council, in
fact, will be cast as "the lady that's

sing as their representative.

ing. The adult lodge, Degree of
Honor, is also planning to furnish
a stunt but the title has not been
chosen. Neighbors of Woodcraft
will again furnish a number for
The official dress rehearsal for
all organizations participating in
the show will be held Thursday eve

Tickets, which will be 30 cents
for adults and 15 cents for chil

Last night I kept a tryst with God
Beneath the deep blue sky;
The stars that brightly twinkled
Were like candles there on high.
The scent of earth and woodland
As incense slowly rose,
And the breeze that softly mur
mured Sang a hymn at Vespers close.
Oh, I know that God was with me,
Although I did not see Him there,
For my troubled heart found solace
In that scented, star-lit prayer.

The Lexington Parent-Taechers
association will hold a meeting on
October 25, beginning at 7:30 o'
clock in the high school auditor
ium. The association president is
sending out the following letter for
thte benefit of those who are not
familiar with the P. T. A.: "All par.
ents are considered members of the
association whether they pay dues
or not, and are very welcome at
all meetings. But we believe that
every family is enough benefitted
by the work of the association to
justify the request for dues. We
wish you would all feel that this is
your association; that you would
come to the meetings and give one
another the benefit of your criti
cism, advice and inspiration. Why
join the P. T. A.: 1. Because it
brings parents and teachers to
gether for an exchange of ideas;
nlaking better parents, better
teachers and happier children. 2.
Because no group can so influence
public opinion and public school
officials as an interested, enthusias
tic group of parents and teachers.
3. Because it is an educational
movement of real significance.
What becomes of your P. T. A.
dues? Twenty cents is sent to the
state council for P. T. A. magazine
and state dues. All other funds
are used in our "school for helping
finance the hot lunch." At this
next meeting the Boy Scouts and
4-H club girls will entertain you.
You are urged to come.
