TI-IE IMPORTANCE OF TIME
BIG, powerful car roars down the highway toward the
airport. If the gentleman in the back seat does not
reach New York by evening, or before the offices close
for the day, he will not be able to close a deal that may mean
thousands of dollars for him. The plane takes off from San
Francisco, California, around eight o'clock in the morning and
before six that evening it is coming in for a landing at New York.
The man fulfills his requirements and signs the contract. Today
time means no more to the American people than it did fifty or
seventy-tive years ago. But today with our modern equipment
in communication and in transportation more of our time is
being used because we have more things to do.
A person should never spend an idle minute. If he has
nothing to be doing, his time should not be wasted. There are
not many people today who do waste their time. To a person
when he has nothing else to do, reading is very profitable, if it
is the right kind of reading, because it affects nearly every phase
of life. I believe that time is the most important element in
Still, even if this is true, time is not so important as to try
to beat a red light to try to save a few minutes or to race a train
to a crossing or to speed through a school zone. This type of
time saving causes many deaths and although time is important,
all traffic rules and cautions to slow down this life, should be
ARE TEACHERS SANE?
RE TEACHERS sane? I've often wondered. If not
actually insane they are, at best, Uidiotically sane with
lucid intervals of lunacyf' These clear moments are few
and far between. They must be some kind of educated machines
without a vestige of a heart, or they may be victims of insomnia,
whose sleepless nights cause them to get their grades mixed up,
they often dish me out an "E" or an HF."
Sometimes these machines slip a cog and lose out for a week
or two. Other times they merely lose a needle and their voice

VERYONE dreams-foolish, vain dreams that can never
be realized, or sane, beautiful dreams that inspire one to
the height of ambitions. Rich or poor, young or old, we
all have our dreams of better days to come and of the happiness
of the past.
The young girl's dreams are a mixture of orange blossoms
and wedding bells, of gallant Romeos and cottages by the sea.
Her dreams-beautiful dreams without a fear of the future. A
The youth-with visions of the day when he will be a chief
executive in the business world, with wealth, luxuries, and can
afford to go to his dream girl and lay his heart and fortune at
her feet. Gay, bright indehnitexdreams of the young.
Dear Aunt Mary, never married, but with a few hopes left
still she dreams foolish, vain dreams as she gazes into the mirror
and thinks how young she looks for one of forty-odd years.
The dreams of the old-scattered, twisted dreams. Poor
grandfather has little to dream of as he slowly reaches the end
of his journey. His dreams are of the past-of battles fought and
won, of daring adventures of which he laments and wonders that
none cares to hear of them-little realizing that their dreams are
not his. .
Dreams are the most important things in, Qne's life, the
young fearlessly facing the future because of themg the old
spending their last days joyously and happily with them. With-
out dreams We would have no aim in life or no desire to live.
1 I Louise Stuart-'38,
Comforting and soothing as a warm summer? day,
Cheerful and happy as a child at play,
Chilling and hurting as a cZog's quick bite,
Dark and gloomy as a cold wintry night-
All of these make up a face,
Sometime or other, somewhere, someplace.

becomes hoarse and raucous. I've often heard them shout
"Beware the ides of March," "I come to bury Caesar," "The
quality of mercy is not strained," etc. Such idiotic phrases do
not make sense to me. Who, or what was ides? VVhat and how
much was the quality of mercy, and who in the world was that
In these periods of insanity you must treat the teachers
indulgently and listen meeklyg otherwise they may become en-
raged and positively violent, in which case you may be sure of
and "E" or an "F," .
But after all's said and done you should treat these poor
teachers kindly because they must have a hard time trying to
keep their so-called knowledge intact. Poor souls, I pity them
. . . . . wonder if I'll ever be a teacher.
THE BARK OF A SQUIRREL
WI ost of you long for summer to come,
And make plans for things you'll do
When there's no more school, and that old, swimming pool
Seems to beckon to each of you.
Butgive me those days when the summer fades
:And the frost on the ground does spark,
Out before dawn, I listen and long
To hear that old squirrel bark.
Each nerve is taut as a banjo string,
As I sit there numb -with cold,
But I can't resist when I hear that call.
It ajects both young and old.
So you may have your summer days
And listen to the song of the lark,
But as for me, I 'll take the ones
When I hear the old squirrel bark.
