THE TARGET 39 tin and lead foil which we have been holding for a sufficient rise in the price. Early in the spring an urgent call was sent out by the Junior Red Cross of Berkeley for clean rags. Willard School responded with a considerable quantity of such sal- vage. The Salvage Bureau of the Senior Red Cross decided to make salvage boards, by which to inform the pub- lic of the various things to be saved. At their request our school under- took to construct a model for such boards to be used throughout this part of the state. Under the direc- tion of Miss Allen, Rogers Parratt made an exhibit board, on which were fastened samples of valuable salvage material all properly labeled. This model has been approved by the Salvage Bureau. A photograph of it has been taken to be sent to various Red Cross Chapters, and several boards modeled from it are to be placed about Berkeley. " Erna Erbe, Rodgers Parratt, Anita Isaacs, Ancel Keys and Conrad Lut- gen have volunteered to make these exhibit salvage boards. In the series of noon hour plays given by pupils in the French de- partment, and members of the Seventh and Eighth grades, was evi- denced a genuine desire to be of service, not only on the part of the actual performers, but on the part of members of the Student Com- mittee, who were glad to bring these plays to the notice of the various class room groups, either by direct announcement, or by contributing printed posters, or hand made pos- ters. Plans are now being made for continuing our work during vacation. Several members of the faculty have already offered to give assistance to pupils who wish it, and, if the same spirit continues, there will be no break in our active work. Thanks to the May Pageant, we may count our financial support for the coming year, sufficient to pro- vide for all calls, even to the extent of making it possible for every pu- pil, through the Junior Red Cross chaannel to be an active helper in the great " world welfare " cause.

SERVICE. Of all the many things that hu- mans daily eat, It ' s bread and other things made mostly out of wheat. So you ' ll do a splendid service which no one can dispute When wheat foods you cut out and potatoes substitute. SHELDON COOPER.
