The nice summer weather
brings thoughts of summer vacat­
ion. The students begin to look
forward to the good times they
can have during vacation.
Students can be seen sitting at
their desks looking out over the
lawn dreaming instead of study-
Speaking of summer vacation,
the following editorial gives a
description of a perfect one.
“Summer vacation will soon be
here—like a gleaming road of
ribbon with delectable wayside
attractions. Good HI’ summer va­
cation! Then it is that the whole
family will pack up, and in brand
new hiking suits, pile off to the
mountains. Every summer they
go to the mountains, and every
fall vow they won’t go. Yet when
warm weather comes around, they
forget all about the mosquitos,
and how crowded the cabin is,
and how the -Wtove refuses to
burn, and the big rattlesnake that
crept around the cabin door. In­
stead, Pa thinks of mountain
streams and fishing, tho he per­
fectly well knows he didn’t catch
but two last summer. Ma thinks
it will be such a rest, forgetting
that electric lights, telephones,
and the grocery man are not at
her service. The eldest daughter
is at present infatuated with her
hiking togs, but in a few weeks
she’ll wish they’d voted a nice
summer resort, where one dines,
“horse-backs,” teas, tennises a bit,
and then dances all night.
But why dampen their ardor?
Ma is already packing. Her ap-
timism is pathetic. After all that
seems to be general idea of va­
cation. We think they are kid­
ding themselves but perhaps they
do enjoy it. Vacations are like
stocks, you invest a lot but the re­
turns are slight. We’ve heard
of a new invention, the
application of which gives the
skin a good coating of tan. This
saves all the trouble of going te
the beach and blistering. Some­
one, we think it was John Stevens
McGroaty, said that to truly take
a vacation you must travel, keep
traveling, and not spend your
time all at one place. Don’t you
like that? It sort of appeals to
your wanderlust. Aftel all, it de­
pends largely upon how you hand­
le it. A real vacation has to be
tended just as a flower garden
or a baby. It must have all the
finesse of a well planned military
attack. A vacation is a work of
art.” From “Manual Arts Week­
ly,” Los Angeles, Qalifornia.
According to the Oregon Daily
Emerald, Glen Heiber and Neal
Bush will take the state bar ex­
amination this spring. They are
VHS graduates and are two of
the twenty six students who will
be taking the examination.
