Those who have attended in former years pronounce it one of the finest attractions of our commencement week. The class numbers thirty-seven, twenty-two of whom are boys.

The voices of thousands of birds we hear; Blackbirds and robins are doing their best To build a cozy little nest For their young ones, till they can fly. Then won’t they be glad? Oh, my! The pasture fields are vivid green, Such a beautiful color you’ve never seen; The hard-working farmer is planting his corn. Till late at night, from early morn. Every one loves this month of May, While the grass is making hay. In June the oxheart cherries are ripe, The boys club them with all their might; They divide equally, or else there’s a fight. This is the end of my summer poem. Talk it over, and say what you think. For the boys tell me I have wasted my ink. —♦D.H.S.- — Mary, are there any eggs in the chicken house?” “No, Ma, only the ones the chickens use as patterns.” —►D.H.S.- — Gentleman (hunting a new chauffeur) —“I suppose I can write to your last employer for your character?” Chauffeur—“Sorry, sir, but my last employers died in my service.” Employer—“Can you write shorthand?” Wm. Barrett (hunting position as stenographer)—"Oh. yes, only it takes me longer.” — -D.H.S.- -— Johnny—“Which is right, 6 and 7 are or 6 and 7 is?” Johnny’s father—“6 and 7 are." Johnny—“Wrong, my teacher says 6 and 7 equal 13." —►d.h.s.- -— Teacher—“Can any little boy tell me what is meant by ‘divers diseases’?” Harry—“Yes, teacher: I know.” Teacher—“Well, Harry?” Harry—“Please, teacher: fish bites.” —••D.H S. «— “Did you follow my advice?” “Why—er—yes; but I didn’t quite catch up with it.” —-••D.H.S.- — An announcement given in chapel— “There will be a short teachers’ meeting tonight after school." (That’s a queer meeting—it must mean Miss Williams and Miss Bailer.)

32 THE CUCKOO which Miss Myrtle Good substituted for Miss Ola Good, was well given and interesting. The next number was the debate: Resolved. That Manual Training be substituted f -r Athletics in the Downing-town High School. The affirmative was ably upheld by Miss Anna Wharry and Mr. Horace Carpenter, who substituted for Miss Anna Townsley, and Mr. Ira Knauer and the negative by Miss Pauline Starner and Miss Virginia Clark, who substituted for Mr. Charles Cain. The decision of both the judges and- the house was unanimously in favor of the negative. After the debate was the sentiment roll, by the Freshrr an class, and following this the audience was favored with a vocal duet by Miss Esther Ax and Miss Olive Miller, which was very well rendered. The critics, reported by Miss Williams, contained some good criticisms on the different numbers. The meeting was then adjourned. EXCHANGE Since publishing our first issue our list of exchanges has been growing steadily. However, we would welcome many more publications from other schools to our list. Should we fail to acknowledge any exchange sent to us it will probably be due to the fact that the exchange has reached us after all our material has gone to press. We would appreciate comment on our paper from others. Only a few of the publications reaching us mention The Cuckoo in their Exchange Departments. Are we not worthy of acknowledgment? “The Archive,” Northeast High School, Philadelphia. Pa—Your paper is very well arranged and your Literary section, especially, is to be commended. We would advise more , poetry of the same class as that which | was in your last number. "The Helios,” Central High School, Grand Rapids. Mich.—As we expected. “The Helios is up to its usual high standard. Our only criticism of your paper is—it is not half long enough to suit us: 200 pages would be about right. “The Brown and White,' Greens-burg High School, Greensburg, Pa.— Your cover design is especially clever. Your stories are good—well, altogether we like your paper very much. “The Monitor,” New Castle High School, New Castle, Pa.—You certainly have a fine Class Notes Department. but why so little on your Alumni page? We wish we had some of your “Spring Fever." By the way, did you receive any of our issues? "The Garnet and Gray," Lansdowne ; High School, Lansdowne, Pa.—We ! like the cover on your April issue. Why not begin your "Exchanges” ; and “Class Notes” at the top of the page with a more prominent heading, and why “sandwich” your "Athletics” between your “Class Notes”? The cuts of your basketball team are good. “The Oracle,” Gloversville High School, Gloversville, N. Y.—Is there any especial significance in the shade of the cover on your April issue? Perhaps it is an imitation of Mrs. Wilson's favorite shade for dress materials. The manner in which the story on page three starts seems abrupt to us. Why not have a "Literary Department” heading? Otherwise you suit us. “The Red and Black." Boys’ High School, Reading, Pa.—Every one here who has read your Easter issue speaks well of it. Have you received the first two issues of 1 he Cuckoo? “The White and Gold,” Woodbury High School, Woodbury, N. J.—T he cover of your Spring Number is very pleasing and we welcome you to our “fold.” Your material is well organized and your Exchange Department is exceptionally good. It might have been better to have had your two pages of cartoons farther apart than on consecutive pages and facing, so as to distribute the humor. Please come again. Received too late for critisicm: “The Mirror,” Central High School, Philadelphia Pa.: "Impressions,” Scranton 1 Central High School, Scranton, Pa.
