One of the interesting things :as a
light used in the directing of planes. It
is made up of three lights:yelloe,red,und
green. The yellow light is for caution.The
red is for danger,wait for further instr-
uctions. The green is for clear,go ahead.
There was a navy plane on the field
while we were there. Some of us saw it
After we looke at everything in the
building we went ot the hangar. It was
just a one room building. There were lots
of planes in it. I don't see how they got
them all in.
A few minutes later the T.W.A. came in.
I didn't get to see it as it came in,so I
can't tell you hot it looked. When it
landed it rolled up in front of the main
building. Then a man went out to it with a
platform and the people got off. A mechanic
came and oiled and checked the motors. The

There are many different kinds of
bacteria and they are found almost eva
where. There is no difficulty in finds
ing material to study. Bacteria are in
the air,soil,and water. They may live i
either deed or living material. A poorly
ventilated school room may contain many
bacteria. We ent,drink,fnd breathe bec-
teria in countless millions yet most of
them do us no harm. The best temperature
for bateria growth is between 70 and 100
degrees fnhrenheigbt. Very few bactfria
grow well above 115 degrees though in
hot springs certain bacteria have been
found growing in temperatures as high as
175 degrees. Within certain limits a
rising temperature speeds the growth
where a dropping temperature reterds it.
Ordinarily all bacterial life is killed
by boiling water. The life activities of
bacteria are checked as the freezing
point of water is approached and cease
entirely when the water freezes. They
may live in ice for months and become
active again when the ice melts. Bac-
teria are useful in the preparing of cer
tain foods. Certain bacteria change

Not so long ago men believed that the
greater portion of the earth sonsisted of
a molten mass covered by a hard crust.Vol-
canoes mere looked on as safety valves for
this interier of heated liquid. Recent Scif:
entific experiments indicate,however,that
the interior of the earth is rigid like
steel making it necessary to find another
explanation for volcanoes. Today there are
only about three hundred active volcanoes.
In past ages nuch more activity took place.
Volcanic eruptions sent out clouds of ash-
es,cinders,gases,and lava completely cover-
ing and burying cities as Pompeii,near
Naples in the year 79 A.D. The city of Pom-
peii wns rediscovered in 1748 and since
then its covering of ash has been removed
by careful digging and excavating.

The transfer of pollen from the sta-
mens is called pollenntion. In many flore
were it is necessary that pollen come
from a different flower. Msn insects

and odor. Some flowers produce nectar,
a meet fluid which insects use for food.
zilmes crawl around on flowers and down
into them. They become covered with the
pollen which they carry to other flowers
as they move about. Some birds are agent.
of pollenation. fhe humming bird is one
example. Wind is also a carrier of pollez
Pollen grains are light and are picked
and carried in the wind. S ome of them
fall on the stigmns of other flowers.
Flies are deadly insects to have
nrou d. The house fly carries disease
germs in several ways. Its feet are
sticky and its legs have many hairs on
them which are adapted for carrying bac-
teria. These become soiled with the
filth in which they live. When the fly
touches an other object some of the
filth is left where it may live. .

5 The word gcograph comes from two Greek
words,ngeU,and,nGrnphaN,in combination, moan
ing description of the earth. Geography dif-
fers from geology and other sceinces of the
earth in the fact that geography studies the
earth as the abode of mankind. It is closely
related in certain of its aspects, to the
sciences of economics,history,nstronomy,bot-
:un ,soology,nnd meteorology.
Geography is usually classified on the
basis of its subject matterzmathemnticnl ' 1
geogrnphy,ph sicel geogruphy,physiogrophy,
and biological geography. Mathematical geog-
lrephy concenns the size,shope,end movements
of the earth. Physical geography deals with
ithe layers of the enrth's surfnce,lnnd,seo, If
'ond air. Biological geography studies the
ylife conditions of plants and animals on the
one hand and of man on the other.

5 Rock is the solid portion of the earthd
surface. The formation of rock from molten
materials is still going on and may be seen
wherever active volcanoes throw out lava,
which solidifies on cooling. The rock enve-
lope of the arth contains nearly all the
known chemical elements, though only eight
of them enter into the composition of rocks
in such proportions as to require naming.
They are found in approximately the follow-
ing proportions: Oxygen.silicon,aluminum,

As used in geology the term rock
means solid poriton of the enrth.Sand
and gravel are rock to the geologist.
The term stone is applied to detached
portions of rock,though very large mass-
es are usually called rock. Rounded ftp
stones which have been shaped by the
action of ice or water are cslled boul-
dors or pobbles,depending upon their
size. These are frequently found long
distances from the mass of rock from
which they were twken,hnving been trans-
ported by ice or water. According to
their formation,rocks are clossidied :sg

During the l4th and l5th centuries
England,end France,and Spain were be-
coming nations in which many loosely
connected feudal divisions were grad-
ually merging under comparatively strong
central governments. Then for the first
time,the individuel cities of Italy
and the weak organization of the Hsnse
came into conflict with commercial
rivals who had less experience but were
more poverful end determined than them
selves.Portugnl under the direction of
wise rulers had already attfined the
leadership in nnvigetion. Out of all
these conflicts came the conditions
xhich 1.' we see in the uorld today.

grade boys ond the boys from Mrs.Anguish's
room are in the class. Mr.Sellers is our
In our study club we learn about the
things nature has put here in this land of
ours. There are the flowers,plnnts,trees,
grasses,and weeds. Recently we studied
about the planets.
Last fall when the weather was nice we
took hikes. On one hike we collected leaves
which were placed in leaf books. On another
we gathered weed seeds,and on another insects.
On this trip we saw several snakes. We caught
two of them and brought them to the school
building. We kept them for some time and
studied them. .
I think we have a very interesting and
worth while activity in our nature study
club. Billy Smith,8A.
Earwig is the name for an order of bee-
tle like insects that are active at night.
They received this name from n mistaken be-
lief of former times in isolated communiti-
es that they crept into the ears of sleep-
ing persons. Although the destruction of
fruits and flowers has been attributed to
earwigs they are an aid to-farmers in that
they feed on thrips,snails,nnd caterpillars
Their upper wings are short and leathery,
and the lower are gauze-like. Theirfanten-
naelfeelers are long and delicate. On the,
abdomen is a strong pair of pincers,the use
for which has never been discovered.Earwigs
are found under stones, in decayed bark of
trees, and in moist places in most arts of
European countries. A very small species is
found in the northern and eastern part of the
United States and larger.ones in California
and Florida. Practically all of the species
found in the United States-is harmless.

lished itself in several western sectioni

NATURE STUDY .
In our Nature Study class we are do-
ing a little bit of experimenting. We
have planted a number of different kinds
of seeds in large flower pots. Some of
them are beans,corn,and orange Seeds.
The beans and corn sprouted right
away and grew rapidly-fThey were water-
ed carefully each day so that the would
neither gett too little or too much.
The proper fertilizers were given each
one so that it would grow best.
The corn now is about knee high and
doing well. However the beans are of
most interest because they have grown as
well or better than they would out of '
doors and now have large full sized greet
beans on them.
It is all very interesting and shows
what can be done in minature gradening.
K Hazel Lutz,8A.
Each Tuesday morning the boys of the
seventh and eighth grades have nature n
study. We have studied trees,grasses,
weeds,plants,flowers, and many other int-
eresting things of nature.
An interesting thing about grasses
is that there are about 4700 different
kinds and about lOOO are found in the '
United States. We divided grasses into
two classes: useful and harmful. Some of
the different useful grasses are wheat,
Corn is a strictly American grass crop.:
We study about trees too. It is very
interesting. There are two kinds of treer
