Vocational Agriculture Club
ln looking back over the year's work, a number of good things come to mind.
With the largest attendance in the history of this department and a more mature
student body than heretofore, there has been an earnestness of purpose which has
made possible the accomplishment of a great deal of excellent work. Th new type
of vocational work offered by this department has evidently had its appeal, and the
majority of the boys taking the course are enthusiastic over it.
We are satisfied to know that the patrons as well as the students who belong
to this worthy "Ag Club," have enjoyed some of the greatest times in attending
the Hrip roaring" meetings of the "Ag Club."
lt has been stated before that when we are dealing with agriculture we are deal'
ing with the real fundamentals of life. The soil is the birth of the nation and our
t'Ag Club" has made this statement known throughout the vicinity of Lebanon.
Who did the work on the athletic field? That shows that we did and are interested
in old L. H. S. XVho built the new farm shop? The 'fAg Club." Who put the
lockers together so that our great athletic teams could comfort themselves while dres-
sing for their battles? The "Ag Club." l tell you again we are interested in old
L. H. S. lf anything was to be done in the line of manual work Mr. Pepper would
always call on the "Ag Club" because he knew that we have a reputation of being

56 THE WARRIOR
When Wave Lengths Wafver
Spectackled-owl-faced-darling of the Ladies' Aid Society-head of his class-
in other words, Percy Marks, was Snub's and Kenneth's mortal enemy. Their rea-
sons for hating him were numerous, but the last offense committed was the worst.
insomuch that he installed a radio made by himself. Ordinarily this would have
been all right but now, it was an outrage in their estimation. Reason? Because
they felt certain that Percy had made the set just to throw their own small crystal
set in the shade.
It happened in the days when radio was a novelty, and the purchase of one in
town Lespecially a delapidated one-horse, or maybe one-auto town, like Tulipvillel
was likely to cause a great deal of excitement. Kenneth and Snubs had had the first
radio in the afore-mentioned town, in which they resided. For awhile it was the
greatest curiosity, most-gossiped, most-talked about thing in town, and then about
the time the two boys were considering running jointly lthey did everything in that
mannerl for mayor. Percy appeared on the scene with a set, over which you could
hear any city of the United States. True, it didn't always work, but when it did,
it far outshone their own set,
It was the first home-made radio in Tulipville and everyone was proud of it.
No one knew anything about radio but everyone said, "How clever," and such re-
marks as "What a bright little boy" and "I wouldn't be surprised if he turned out
to be a second Edison" could be heard on all sides.
The very name of Percy Marks became idious to Snubs and Kenneth. When
they sat down to supper in the evening their parents were sure to begin conversa-
tion with 'iWe heard a speech from Denver over the Marks boy's radio. Why don't
you improve your set so that you can hear that far?" XVhen they went to school
the main topic of conversation at recess was sure to be The Radio and what a long
distance you could hear on it.
Percy, himself didn't say much about it. He let it be
known that it was a very expensive one and that it had taken M 7
him a long time to make it as he had invented a few of the
parts himself, but otherwise he was non-committal. , W
Snubs wondered a great deal about that radio. He had gi
never seen it but he felt certain that Percy never could have ll
made it. He was not of a mechanical mind and it seemed ' I "T
impossible that he had invented some of it. All-ineall Snubs li .HMM
was quite disgusted with the world as he lay on the ground ' ,
staring up at the antenna wavering back and forth over the '
Marks' home next door. ' 'Um
"Yoof Hoof Snubsfu came Kenneth's voice, breaking M 5 if
the silence of the still afternoon. "Come on over and go
skating, or I'll come over therein and fitting his actions to
his words he vaulted over the back fence. "Lets skate here f
in front of yours and "Little Angel's place." E U
Snubs assented. So, soon, with arms swinging back Q:
and forth and hair flying up on end, they flew down the S S
sidewalk. As they came abreast the Mark's residence, Percy
stepped out on the porch and said sweetly: 'iMy cousin is
very sick so I wish you'd please skate farther down the walk.
Those skates do make so much noise," Percy hose ,
