In November Katherine Ela, Mary

Council will grow even stronger and con-
tinue to be an asset to our school.

To find their families waiting there,

LOOKING THROUGH THE BARS
hthelbert had been captured a long
time ago and put behind bars. No one
remembered exactly when he had been
caught or where he came from. His diet
each day had been just a little food and
mthelbert was very handsome and
could sing beautifully. Whenever visi-
tors came to see him they remarked how
handsome he was. Always they wanted
him to sing for them. Sometimes he
would, for the visitors that came the
Mr. Johnson, the man who brought
Ethelbert his food, said he sang the most
when he didn't know anyone was around.
So after that the visitors would stay out
of sight until he had sung and then go
in to see him.
One day Mr. Johnson forgot to lock
the door after bringing Elthelbert his
food and he escaped.
Mr. Johnson spread the alarm but
it was too late. The canary had flown
out an open window and was singing in
the top of a tall elm tree.

WHY I DON'T LIKE WINTER
Why don't I like winter? Well, I'll
tell you a few of the reasons why I don't.
Through the winter months snow
seems to fall every day and every time it
does I have to shovel. And when I
shovel, the snow always sticks. It's al-
most enough to make a minister curse.
If you happen to own an old car
chances are ten to one that it will act up
on the coldest mornings of the year. The
radiator will freeze and then patience
and hot water are the only cure. If that
doesn't work a person has to pour gas
into the motor and crank for what he's
worth. Some cars won't even start then.
Those are the ones that you have to tow all
over "God's white creation" and then
some. Slippery roads are another thing
that help one out greatly when he gets
out of the road. Then the shovel or the
chain is the only answer. O, yes, there is
the tow truck of course. It is a lot of fun,
too, to crawl under the car and put those
darn things on. They never seem to fit.
When it begins to snow in the morn-
ing, very often it will turn to darn blast-
ed rain to stick on the roads and the win-
dows of a car.
It's fun to work outside when the
wind blows like a storm at sea and the
snow, of course, is there stinging against
your face. Those are but a few of the
many reasons why I don't like winter.
-Richard Whitaker '48
A LETTER FROM HOME
Today as I sit reading your letter
from home, I close my eyes, and in mem-
ory once again I'm walking down the
main street of the old home town. I
listen to the merry laughter of little
children as they play without a care in
the world. I hear the friendly voices of
the clerks in the stores as they sell some-
thing to a customer or buy something
from a salesman I catch the cheery tones
of the postman as he goes on his way.
Again it's mealtime and I seem to see
the pleasant home surroundings, the
neat table loaded with well-cooked
food, fresh vegetables, meat, fragrant
steaming coffee or delicious milk. I hear
the loved voices of the family that make
mealtime at home such a happy time to
But darkness is creeping in, a cold
mist is coming up through the prison
yard. I can hear the steady footsteps
of the guard as he passes up and down
before my cell. No longer can I see to
read your letter from home. I wipe
away the mist before my eyes, the hap-
py visions disappear, and once again I
am locked in the old prison camp-a
prisoner of war.
-Percival Spencer '47
THE GREATEST SCARE I EVER HAD
One late afternoon last fall I was
crashing home in the dark. I say crash-
ing because it was so dark one couldn't
see anything ten feet in front of him. I
had been hunting but I'd had no luck
as there seemed to be no deer prowling
around that afternoon. I knew exactly
where I was, otherwise it would have
been easy to get lost.
As 1 wallowed through an extra
noisy brush pile, a light suddenly swept
across the rather open country in front
of me. I don't know whether my eyes
would shine like a deer's or not, but I
took no chances. I stepped quickly be-
hind the nearest tree. Just in time, too,
for the light swept slowly by, changing
the darkness to daylight. The operator
satisfied that it was his imagination he
had heard, switched off the light. I
stayed still for a few minutes not daring
to move. Although I had no way of tell-
ing, I had a growing suspicion it might
be some trigger-happy night hunter who
lived in that vicinity.
I started to move again but kept
close to cover all the while. On came the
light once more, and this time closer. I
was safely out of sight, however, by the
time it reached me.
It began to look as if I would have to
stay out in the field all night. Then a
happy inspiration came to me. I whist-
led as clearly as I could manage. Im-
mediately there was the sound of a man
moving rapidly for the road nearly half
a mile away. In less than five minutes
I heard a car start and go tearing off
into the darkness. I, breathing a deep
sigh of relief, made my way home and
without further mishap.
-Ralph Manzer '48
SEASONS I LIKE THE BEST
Spring and fall I like the best,
But we have to live through all the rest.
Though winter and summer are very
Really to like them, I have no reasons.
Spring is swell, and fall is better,
But I don't like the winter weather.
When summer comes, and kids holler
I just go down and catch some trout.
Then when it's fall, I never pout,
For I get my gun and hunt about.
When winter is here, and kids run a race,
I curl up by the fireplace.
So spring and fall I like the best.
Other people can have the rest.
Robert Burns '50
A LETTER TO MISS TRUMAN
In the Freshman English Class one
morning of the week following the radio
broadcast of Miss Margaret Truman, we
decided to write her a note of congratu-
lations. The letter which follows was
composed by the class and was copied
by the Secretary, Shirley McLean.
North Anson, Maine
March 25, 1947

In behalf of the Freshman Class of
Anson Academy, I am writing to con-
gratulate you on your excellent radio

THE MOST FAITHFUL PAL
Tommy Simpson, a cute little eight
year old boy, lived with his mother and
father on a large dairy farm in Indiana.
He had helped his father with the chores
and fished in the bubbling streams but
there was one thing he longed for more
than anything else and that was a com-
panion. He wished for someone to run
and play with, someone to keep him com-
pany. The nearest neighbor lived two
miles from the Simpson home so they
seldom visited there. In the meantime
Tommy was terribly lonesome.
One day he came in from outside
and went into the kitchen where his
mother was busy preparing the evening
meal. He sat down in the little red stool
his father had made for him when he
was hardly more than a baby. He was
silent for a minute and then he asked
the question: "Mother, will you and
daddy buy me a dog?"
"Why, yes, Tommy," said Mrs. Simp-
son, "of course we will." "We were plan-
ning to get one for your birthday in
October but, if you would rather have it
now we will get it for you the next time
we go to the city. What kind of dog
would you like?"
By this time Tommy was jumping up
and down clapping his hands and shout-
ing for joy. When he had calmed down
enough to answer he stammered: "I
want a big, big Collie dog and I wan'na
teach him a whole mess of tricks and he
can go everywhere with me 'n every-
thing. When can we go to the city, Mom-
my? Can we go today? Can we, huh?"
His mother laughed and said they
couldn't go for two or three days but
they would go very soon.
Two days later a very proud little
boy was returning home from the city,
for there in the back of the car with his
head in Tommy's lap was a big beau-
tiful collie dog.
The next few weeks were packed
full of fun. Tommy immediately named
his dog Laddie. Laddie got just as much
fun out of learning the tricks as Tommy
did out of teaching them. They explored
nearly every inch of the farm, went fish-
ing and had jolly times together. Laddie
never left Tommy's side. He even slept
on a rug beside Tommy's bed every
One nice afternoon in June Tommy
decided he would like to go fishing. He
had always been fishing within sight of
the house before when he had been alone
but there was a much better place about
three-quarters of a mile away in the big
pasture behind the barn. He had often
been there with his father. He ran into
the house and teased his mother to let
him go. His mother soon consented
trusting Laddie's watchful eye and faith-
A half hour later found Tommy with
a fishpole over his shoulder trudging
along the lane leading to the pasture
with Laddie trotting close at his heels.
A fifteen minute walk brought them to
the shady fishing spot with which they
were well acquainted.
Tommy seated himself upon the bank
and dropped the line into the water He
fished steadily for an hour with Laddie
lying close by his side. The dog soon be-
came tired of lying there, and without
Tommy's knowing it got up and wander-
ed around and soon started for home.
Eventually Tommy had had enough
of fishing. Also enough fish, so leaving
his fish and pole on the bank he began
hunting wild flowers for his mother. He
had noticed Laddie's absence but think-
ing the dog had gone home and believing
he himself would be all right, he con-
tinued picking flowers and without
thought wandered further than he real-
ized. He then discovered the sun was
low in the west so he turned back but
soon found he didn't know which way to
go. He became frightened and wished
llraddie were there to show him the way
Back at the farmhouse Mr. Simpson
and the hired men had come in for sup-
per. The sun was nearly down and Mrs.
Simpson was worried. She went outside
to see if Tommy were in sight and saw
Laddie lying by the front steps. She re-
ported this to her husband and he and
the hired hands along with Laddie were
at once on their way to find Tommyv.
When they reached the fishing hole Mr.
Simpson said: "Go find Tommy, Lad-
die." "Go find Tommy."
Laddie ran around in circles for a
moment but soon picked up the sce'nt of
Tommy's footsteps and started on the
trail with Mr. Simpson and the other men
close behind. Frequently Mr. Simpson
would shout in an attempt to locate Tom-
my. They continued for a few minutes.
By this time it was nearly pitch dark and
the men had to use flashlights. Presently
Tommy heard his father's shout but be-
fore he could answer Laddie came
bounding through the bushes. Tommy
fell upon his knees and threw his arms
around his pet's neck. When he looked
up his father was standing over him.
That evening, after both Tommy and
Laddie had been fed a good big meal,
the family gathered in the living room.
Tommy played with his faithful dog
while his parents happily looked on.
Suddenly he sat up and said: "Laddie
is the most wonderful pal a person could
ever have. Don't you think so?" And
his parents agreed.

A TYPICAL MAINE LIAR
A weary fisherman had stopped at
Joe's camp and asked if he could put
him up for the night.
Joe had lived in the northern parts
of Maine all his life and knew just how
to treat these city slickers.

I like to watch the fireflies on a clear,
cool summer night.
To see them flying to and fro is always
On their little wings with lights aglow,
They soar up high, then dart down low.
They gather in groups with flashes bright,
And add strange beauty to the night.
They seem like fairies that dance in the
With magic wands, and feet all bare.

THE SOLDIER'S FAREWELL
This story takes place in a little town
outside the city of New York. Donnie
who was seventeen years old lived with
his mother, an elderly lady.
In order to tell this story I will have
to go back to the time when Donnie was
about eleven. Edward, Donnie's father,
had always been a swell pal to his little
boy. He took Donnie with him where
ever he went, played games with him
and helped him with his school work.
The year Donnie was twelve his
father was drafted into the Army. This
just about broke Donnie's heart, but his
mother was brave and tried to comfort
After Edward left, Donnie took his
place in trying to do the work around
the house. This helped his mother very
much. In the year that followed Donnie
became more and more able to depend
upon himself. For this his mother was
Donnie was seventeen when word
came that his father had died in action.
This great sorrow was very hard for
both Donnie and his mother to bear.
A week later Donnie told his mother
he wanted to have a talk with her. He
told her that he wanted very much to
take his father's place in the Army. His
mother broke down and cried, but this
didn't change Donnie's mind.
He enlisted and prepared to leave
the following week. When the day ar-
rived for Donnie to go, his mother did
not cry. She just smiled, kissed him, and
said, "Farewell, soldier!"

Listen, my children, and you shall hear
Of the midnight ride of Slcilly, dear.
Now my machine was a Model T,
She hammered and thumped, but was a
great help to me.
There was only one seat,
Just made for two,'
But if you were walking
We'd have found room for you.
She was short on looks,
But fall of vim.
She was a great old boat,
For the shape she was in.

CHOOSING A CAREER
The choice of a career is not easy
because of the intricacy of the human
personality. Even though it may be
proved that a person is capable of doing
a certain type of work, that doesn't mean
that he will be happy doing it. The
choice of a career depends upon a per-
son's likes and dislikes as well as upon
many other factors.
Each individual must make his own
choice of a career. No one can make it
for him, although financial hardship and
social pressure may make it imperative
that he enter a certain field of work.
The choice of a career should be an in-
telligent one, based on fact and not on
fancy. Stories and articles cannot al-
ways be trusted to give accurate portay-
als of what different types of work are
like since they may create an atmosphere
of false glamour. The individual should
secure first hand information from those
who have had experience in the field
that he is considering. He should visit
the places where such work is carried on
that he may see for himself what it is
The one in search of a career should
attempt to visualize what his life would
be like in a certain field of activity. He
may desire the financial reward and so-
cial prestige that attend a certain po-
sition but he may not care for the work
involved. He should do much medita-
ting as to whether he would like a
roving, a settled, an outdoor, or an in-
door lifeg to deal with thoughts, objects,
persons or things.
The practical requirements of any
career being considered should be care-
fully studied because independent cap-
ital or specialized education may be re-
quisite factors. It is possible to earn a
fair wage from the start in some occupa-
tions whereas there is a long period of
non--paying apprenticeship in others.
Aibove all, the person attempting to
select a career, should not make a de-
cision without a great deal of premedi-
tation respecting the factors which have
been mentioned. It is most unwise to
make a snap decision based on unsound
-Hilda I. Walker '48
MEN AT THEIR BEST
Nearly every day you might hear
some boy, either in school or out say,
"Women! I never saw anything that can
compare with them." But do they ever
stop to think that perhaps women feel
the same about men. Take Teddy Briggs
for instance. Whenever he's getting doll-
el up to take his girl to dances, his con-
versation might go something like this.
"Oh mom, run up the stairs and get my
white shirt, please. Sis, will you shine
my shoes a little? Do a good job be-
cause at a dance everybody notices your
shoes. It seems as if I'm a little behind
Sis has to stay in tonight for she had
gone out through the week, and as she
didn't get in until late she has to stay
home Saturday night for her punish-
ment. In a few minutes Mom and Sis
have all Ted's articles of clothing pre-
pared for him and he's nearly ready for
the dance. Oh, not quite. His tie!
Again he calls on mother. "Oh, mom,
would you mind going up stairs to get
my necktie? It's on my bureau--the blue
one." A moment later mom is back and
Ted is at last almost ready to leave. He
looks into his billfold only to find that
he hasn't quite enough money, or dough
as he calls it, for all the extra things he
plans on. He waits a few minutes hoping
Dad will come back from the neighbors
so he can have some more money. F'if-
teen minutes later dad comes and Ted
gets his courage up and says, "Oh, Dad,
you couldn't spare me a couple of dol-
lars to buy my girl some chocolates,
could you?" With a smile dad gives
Ted the money and Ted, with a light
heart and a happy anticipation, hops
into the auto, steps on the starter, and
drives out of the yard singing, "Zip-a-
dee-doo-da." With the help of the whole
family he is off for an evening's enter-
Aren't sisters terrible! I think so,
though at times I suppose they aren't
quite so bad.
If you ever happen to do anything
that isn't just right, they always run
Page 'I' wenty-F our
home and start telling everything they
know, and sometimes things they don't
know. And are they pleased if you get
the old Harry from your dad and mom!!
Now if you don't believe me just ask
some of the boys that have them, and I
think you'll find they will agree with me.
Without a doubt the girls won't, but it's
You may make an agreement with
them, and then they will turn right
around behind your back and tell yo-ur
mom and dad. And a little later your
parents will spring it on you when you
least expect it. Of course you ask them
from whom they found all that out, and
they will say they just heard it. And I'll
bet you will discover that it was your
sister who had told on you.
I think perhaps I had better quit and
not tell any more because by now they
are all probably ready and waiting to

WHEN THE ACADEMY BELL
RINGS ONCE MORE
When the Academy bell rings once more,
Let us pause in our tasks of the day,
And think of the happy memories,
The burning of our school took away.
It happened one day in the winter:
To save it we fought in the cold,'
But, at last, we saw it was useless.
Our hearts were full of sadness untold.
We stood around and were silent
As the last of our school burned away,
There was naught we could do to prevent
And we turned and went on our way.
They plan to rebuild in the springtime,
If nothing more should go wrong
To open the doors of a building
The Academy we've loved for so long.
So let's open our hearts and our purses
And help them to open the door.
Forever we'll cherish its memory
When the Academy bell rings once more.

GETTING READY FOR A
Late on Friday afternoon Frances and
I decided that we would go ice-fishing
on Saturday morning.
We got all our things together, and
lfrances planned to stay with me that
night so we could get an early start.
We put up our dinner to take with
us and piled our things all together so
we would know exactly where they were.
We didn't want to wake Chrystelle that
morning because she would want to go
too if she found out that we were going.
We went to bed early and set the
alarm for 5 o'clock. Frances said, "Don't
you think we ought to set it for one
hour earlier?" But I told her that I
thought that was early enough.
lt seemed as though we had just got
to sleep when I heard that alarm ring.
'l'he clock was on the stand next to Fran-
ces. l didn't bother to turn it off because
i thought probably she would. She only
groaned, turned over, and said, "Will
you please turn off that darn alarm
CIOCK so l can sleep.
So I got up and as I started around
the bed to turn off the alarm I tripped
over something. 1 turned around, and to
my amazement it was Frances' clothes
which she had neatly piled on the floor.
1 turned off the alarm and Frances kept
right on snoring. Next I had to awaken
her. I spoke to her but she only told me
to keep still. Finally like the pop of a
gun I had an idea. I noticed a glass of
water on the stand, and Frances' right
foot which was sprawled out of bed and
very comfortably lying on a chair. Get-
ting the glass of water, I threw the whole
glassful on her foot which awakened her
We dressed quickly and went down
stairs. We ate breakfast, put on our
jackets, and then turned to get our
things but, to our amazement, they were
nowhere to be seen. We looked and
looked but we couldn't find them any-
where. Even our dinner was gone, but
our dinner pails were still there.
We thought of all the things that
could possibly have happened. Then we
decided to call Chrystelle and see if
she knew anything about the missing ar-
ticles. She said that when she came in
from the movies she saw our things
lying around there and thought we had
forgotten to take care of them. She had
taken care of them for us. She said
she was hungry so she took care of our
dinner too. That really made us mad,
and we decided to postpone our fishing
trip till a later date.

A MOTHER'S PRAYER REWARDED
It was late fall and the sun was just
disappearing behind the mountains near
a small town in Wyoming. Mother was
sitting in front of the open fire gazing
at a picture of her son, Bud.
As she sat there a knock came at
the door. Thinking it was one of the
neighbors she said, "Come right in."
The door slowly opened and there
stood a young lad in uniform. He intro-
duced himself as Ned Gray. He said he
had been in the service with her son,
Bud, and he wanted her to know what
a brave lad her son was. He told her
how, during the heaviest fighting on a
small Pacific island, Bud had saved the
lives of the whole garrison. He also
related the time Bud came up among
the missing, assuring her that Bud was
still alive somewhere.
When Ned was ready to leave she
thanked him for his kind words and told
him she was sure Bud was alive and she
would soon hear from him.
Just two days later she received a
telegram from her son-from Bud who
had been reported missing. He was safe
and back in the United States. The tele-
gram read: "Safe and on way home.
Stop. Expect me Thursday." Signed
Bud. A mother's hopes and prayers were

A lot of things happened on the trip
to Jackman. Wouldn't some people like

What did Betty Jacques write to Mr.

or the girls.
Quite a few girls went to Madison to
the basketball tournament. Seems none
of them went the same nights either. We
wonder if it would have made any dif-

The other day in Home Economics
the girls saw a little blonde boy with a
very red face. He was so embarassed he
just hung his head. For once someone
caught this nice little boy in the act.
Suppose some people would like to
purchase a filling station? It has been
said they frequently visited one one day
in particular but they weren't talking
to the owner.
Why does a certain girl try to get
Johnnie to drive the car for her when
she goes shopping? Is he such a good
driver or what is it? ??
The seniors wonder what Mr. Mer-
rill will do without them next year. If
it weren't for them what a dead place
old A. A. would be.
What would we do without Willie
Allen? If it weren't for him we would
have spent some very dreary noon hours.
It was worth the money.
Why did some people prefer the hot
dog roast to the Sophomore Dance? Can
hot dog roasts be that much fun.

house, have them discovered, and then
claim they must be the gold Grandfather
was supposed to have left her and which
had never been located. He hires a
waitress to pose as a clairvoyant and
put on a seance. Patricia and Phil,

the crook, who tries to steal the gold
Richard plants by the chimney, and
through their efforts he's captured and
punished. The gold Grandfather hid is
found, and all ends happily.

North Anson may well be proud of
the boys' team this school year because
they were well liked, and considered
"good sports" everywhere they went.
The boys played fifteen games and won
five of them.
.The boys chose Ralph Manzer as
their most valuable player and also to be
next year's captain.
The boys all like their coach, Mr.
Clifford Gilbert, very much and hope
thatnthe team of next year will have the
plrivllege of working under his leader-

THE GIRLS' BASKETBALL TEAM
North Anson girls had a real team
this year, winning ten out of fifteen
games played. They tied with Solon for
second place in the league at the end
of the season. Though the team next
year will lose the four Senior girls Kath-
erine Ela, Muriel Dunphy, Lelia Newell.
and Rebecca Briggs, we prophesy an-
other excellent team for the 1947-1948
season. Chrystelle Berry was elected
captain for next year and Rebecca
Briggs was chosen the most valuable
player for this year. The girls appre-
ciate the excellent training Miss Frances
Jackson, their coach, gave them and
thank her for her generosity in giving
them so much of her time.

JUNIOR HIGH BASKETBALL
The Junior High boys had a success-
ful season this year because they learned
to cooperate with other boys and get
along well. They played six games and
won three of them. This may not look
like much of an accomplishment but the
boys are young and we expect to see
them become a very good team in the
years to come.
The boys wish to thank Elwin Sharpe
for the time he spent coaching them and
for the sincere interest he showed in the
boys and their sports.

At the close of this basketball season
the third consecutive basketball banquet
The tables were attractively decor-
ated with green and white candles and
cut flowers of yellow jonquils and blue
irises. The place cards were in the form
of a backboard and basket with a ball
falling into it. They were made by Le-
lia Newell and added a very decorative
Mr. Mark Pullen, president of the
Board of Trustees, acted as toastmaster.
At the head table besides Mr. Pullen
and the guest speaker, Mr. Ellsworth
Millett of Colby College, were Mr. and
Mrs. Clifford Gilbert, Principal and Mrs.
Robert Merrill, Rev. and Mrs. Lawrence,
Miss Frances Jackson, Mr. Dwight
Gould, Miss Muriel Dunphy, and Mr.
Prayers were offered by Rev. Law-
rence after which all joined in singing
A most delicious turkey dinner was
served by the girls of the Home Econo-
mics Department under the efficient
direction of Mrs. Florence Harris. At
the close of the banquet the speaker
very truthfully said, "If the girls can
play basketball as well as they can cook,
you certainly must have a championship
Mrs. Pease presented each girl on the
team with a corsage and each boy with
The menu was:

Between the courses Mr. Lawrence
led the group singing the ever popular
old songs, accompanied by Mrs. Judkins
at the piano. One song that furnished fun
for the group was "Do Your Ears Hang
Low" with appropriate gestures.
Miss Muriel Dunphy, captain of the
girls' team, gave a brief account of the
girls' basketball season. She graciously
thanked Miss Jackson for the excellent
leadership and presented a gift from
the girls in appreciation of all she did to
make the school year successful. The
girls' team won ten out of fifteen games
and was tied with Solon for second place
in the Upper Kennebec Valley League
Four of the players were on the All-Star
Team. They were Katherine Ela, Muriel
Dunphy, Lelia Newell and Rebecca
Chester Briggs, captain of the boys'
team, thanked the citizens of North An-
son for their loyal support and expressed
the gratitude of all the boys to Coaclh

abled the boys to have a very successful
season and tie with New Portland for
second place in the league. Chester
Briggs, John Young, Merle Skillings,
and Ralph Manzer were chosen to play
on the All-Star Team. Ted gave Mr.
Gilbert a gift from the boys to express
their appreciation for his careful coach-
Miss Jackson briefly complimented
the girls on their good sportsmanship.
She urged them to take the lessons
learned on the basketball floor with
them throughout life. She presented
certificates and letters to the following
girls: Katherine Ela, Muriel Dunphy,
Maxine Paine, Lelia Newell, Rebecca
Briggs, Chrystelle Berry, Barbara Jud-
kins, and Frances Lynds. At that time
Miss Jackson announced the captain
elect, Chrystelle Berry, for next year
and presented Rebecca Briggs with the
gold basketball for her outstanding work
in the games. She was chosen for this
honor by the girls' team.
Mr. Gilbert spoke to the boys and
told them that he appreciated their co-
operation. He thanked Mr. Elwin

Basketball Team. He presented certi-
ficates to the following boys: John

Bessey. He announced the results of the
votes of the boys who chose Ralph Man-
zer as the most valuable player and also
the captain for next year.
Mr. Pullen very graciously passed
bouquets to the members of faculty, and
lo Llwin Sharpe for his help with the
boys. He also gave a bouquet of red
roses to Mrs. Harris from the trustees
for her success in such a wonderful ban-
quet. She responded with a few well
Mr. Millett gave a very worthwhile
talk on the military might of the country
and the benefits of going to school. He
told of the crowded conditions of the
colleges at the present time. He said
that many of the students were not tak-
ing studies seriously enough. He said
that we must realize that in the years to
come education will be required of all
men and women.
Following the banquet a dance was
held with music by "Ted King" and his
orchestra. Many couples stayed to en-
joy the dancing until a late hour.
