Mary Munson, 8-A. ln the U, S, Army, a man may en- l'st for twra, three, or four years. He has sixty-eight Voc-ations. Forty or these vocations .are for the highest types of skilled mechanics. The other twenty-eight vocations train the men who have not had any previous ex- perience in skilled work. A large army of "down and out- ersu are in the United States, Men oi' mi itary -age who say they have never had a chance when every t'me they pass a recruiting station, their chance is staring them in the face. They walk past 'with beni shoulders, had habits, physically and mentally slow and nothing to look forward ti but the slums and a pauper's grave, One of these "down and outers" deserts his army and joins Uncle Saints Army. He immediately goes through a gre-at transformation, His bent shoulders disappear, hfs had habits are lost and physically and men,ta'1y he becomes better. Before he lived for himself, now he lives for his country, before he thought for the betterment of his class, before he had nothing to look forward to now he is learning a skilled trade with good pay and fa better life wh'ch he knows will be a benefit to him all through life. He has Tearned to use his head as well as his hands and has learned to use them with courage and judgment, Another large class of men 'have never learned to 'take care of them- selves. They have a'ways depended upon someone else to do their thinking and acting for them. ln the Army they are thrown upon their own re- sources. In a short time, they not only learn to think and act for them- selvcs, but also for the other fel ow. They are fit and able to assume charge of bodies of men who need H3118 one to direct them. Anfother thing resulting from the Army is the aciitlent benefits, A civilian meets with an accident and is maimed for liie. ive is a care and burden to his relatives or his state, He is unable to mane his own way and is forced to have relat'ves take care of him or accept charity from others. ln all ways, a man has everything to gain and nothing to' lose by an enlistment in the United States Army. ....l.oi...

Shedden, DO XVITH OUT. Mary Matanovich . Did you ever hear any 'of these expressions? Cut it ,ut, believe me, .th'at's some kid, I ainit got none, I get you, say listen, sure, see. n'everyth'ng, huh, gosh, I'll say so," Of course yon have. lt would beimpossible to live in the United States and not hear those expressions at least a dozen times a day. The good old English of our forefathers has become so di- luted with slang, had grammar and careless speech that we doubt if those venerable people would recog- nize their pure spoken English in its gu'se of torday. At the present t'me people all over the United States are awaken- ing to the fiact that good speech is becoming crippled and campaign af- ter campaign has been -launched for "Better Speech for Better Ameri- cans," We Americans- take pride in our country, our government and our people, but we neglect our language, Foreigners who come to this country adopt .our ill-used degraded vocabulary as soon as they realch our shores. We need not ask ourselves why they do this, for we set the cxample for them. What can we school boys and girls do to aid in better speech. For one thing we can "Do without"- do without at least one of the above expressions a day and use pure En- glish substitutes. We can write slogans and make a drive against poor grawmmar, and refrain from swallowing our Wings." Now, all togeiher, raise your right hand and repeat after me, for the glory of the Lincoln School and better language: 'tl love the United States of Amer- ica. l love my country's Hag, i love my country's language.

As Christmas neared in 1918, a friend and I decided to go out to the park and get some holly berries. We took along with us a hatchet and a long rope. When we arrived we -found to our intense disgust that other people had stolen a march on us and had taken all the berries. "We will have to g-o farther back, if we want to get any berries today," I said. "All right," Jack said, "but we will have to hurry." We came to a place where there were a lot of fine red berries, high up, about fifty feet on an almost per- pendicular wall of loose dirt. My 'friend who was lighter than I said, "Give me the hatchet and I will climb up and cut stairs -on the way." So I gave him the hatchet and he started up. He re-ached the top in safety and started to the nearest busxh of berries. I then started to climb, When I fwas about three fourths of the way up, I looked down and be- held nothing 'but huge rocks and boulders and I coulldnit help but give an inward shudder when I thought what would happen if I fell from such a distance. I struggled on till I was but a coup- le of steps from the top when I felt the place my foot was resting upon give way. Grabbing a twig that stuck out from the bank, I called with all my might. Drops of sweat gathered on my 'forehead as I felt my strength failing and I knew that I must soon drop and either 'be killed or be dis- abled for life. It seemed an eternity before I heard some one call, "Grab the rape!" Hardly knowing what I was doing I reached out for the rope and wound it about my waist. I was dragged up the slope and when I found myself on good solid earth again, I thanked my lucky stars I was alive and kick- ing. .-...T.i3 ..... DAD. Palmer Wells A-8. My Dad is a real mlan, a regular chum and a good sport, one who takes a 'fellow out in the mountains and gives him a good time. Th":s pal of mine has taken me on a good mvany hikes and trips and though we've had some rough ad- ventures we've allways come out on top, t'Hrow else could any one land with him along-J My chum would do anything in the world for me, but in turn I must play fair and square with him. In short, hc's a trustworthy, lloy-al, help- ful, friendly, courteous, kind, cheer- ful, thrifty, brave, clean, reverant man-that's my Dad. ' -.-01-l MY MO-ST EXCITING EXPERIENCE Raymond Campbell, SA. On-e day while I was learning to drive a machine, I happened upon the boulevard, As many m.achin-es pass that way I got nervous. Af-ter going for about ten miles, I Saw a machine zig-zagging across the road. Looking at the machine, I could tell that the driver was drunk, I Closer and closer came the ma- chine and I thought he would surely bump into my machine. I kept to the right side as far as I could. I then slowed down as slow as the machine wlould go. Blowing his horn he headed his auto right for me! Bang! Bang! and crack! I found myself seated on the floor about three feet from my bed. When I looked around nothing had hlap'plelned only a bump on my head, It was my most exciting ex- perience, if only a dream.
