This ing movement causes a set of hard rings to rat- tle per noisily and woe betide the animal or son that disregards the sound. The rattle snake h s deadly fangs,whose attack is fatal if the venom is not removed from the wound quickly. Whisky is the worst possible medi- cine to give a person suffering from snake bite because it stimulates the heart and causes the heart to force the blood more rapidly through he body. Originally rattlesnnkes were found gen- erally over North America,especially in stony and barren places. There are two spoci es in South America.They are thick heavy reptiles. They usually are not more than five feet long. The rings at he end of the tail are formed by the slipping off of the snake's skin. As the snake gets older the skin rolls.

So far we have stud- ied about Seeds,and trees,weeds,graSses,flowerS, leaves. The family of plants known as grasses may be divided into two groups:Useful and harmful. There are about 4700 different kinds of grasses. About lOOO are found in the United States. Sommonly known ones are whent,rye,bnrley,corn,millet,rice,sorghu,, and kefir. The staff of life-bread-comes from the grass family. Sometimes it is mnde from wheat,millet,rice,or rye. Corn is an American Crop Richard Filloff.7A. NATURE STUDY I think' the boys in Mr. Sellers room have a very interesting nature stud clasi Every Tuesday morning we have a meeting. We have talked about trees,plants,seeds, and other things that have to do with na- ture. We have books made to keep our draw ings and writing in. We made them ourself ves. Right now we have a large flower pot with three different kinds of beans grow- ing. We also have some corn growing and some orange seeds planted. The corn and b beans are growing fast. The bean Plants have beans on and the orange seeds have not come up yet. It is all very interesti T James M rsha1l,7A.

' " 'V avr Every Tuesday morning at 8:50 to have Nature Study. All the seventh and eighth grade boys ond the boys from Mrs.Anguish's room are in the class. Mr.Sellers is our teacher. ' 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. as444ai14444aaaeaaaaaasaaassaesamaie THQ EARWIG 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. -Qcontinued next colum l However the European variety has estab- lished itself in several western sectioni and has caused some damage by attacking growing crops. Merlin Doud,8A. sxaaasaaaaaeeeeaaeaeaaaaeeeewknaaasa 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. a+s++asa4+eeeeeeeeeseeeeeeeeaesees HAEEBE 52991 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, rye,barley,millet,rice,corn,kafir,sorghur Corn is a strictly American grass crop.: We study about trees too. It is very interesting.
