Spanish in Central Junior High
FTEN people ask "Why do we study a for-
eign language in Central Junior High
School? " The study of any foreign lan-
guage broadens the horizon of the student, that
is, it gives him knowledge of different people,
-countries, and customs. Learning a foreign lan-
guage gives a pupil more sympathy forforeiners
learning our language. lt also helps to promote
good feelings between the people of different
Pupils choose Spanish because it is amodern
language and so more interesting than a dead
language would be. Spanish gives the same
training as any foreign language. It is spoken
by a great many people and is becoming averv
important language in the business world.
Many of our szatesmen, like Hoover and Weeks,
recommend the study of Spanish as a means of
creating better feeling between North and
Spanish is a modern form of Latin. No
pupil should start Spanish because he thinks it
is easy, for like all other languages the study
of Spanish means hard work.
A pupil working faithfully at Spanish for
two years should have the beginning of a good
Spanish pronunciation, the ability to read, write,
and speak simple Spanish, and some knowledge
of Spanish speaking countries, their great men,
famous places, and interesting costumes.
In Spanish class, besides the ordinary
reading and writing. we have conversations
about pictures and objects, we sing Spanish
songs, give Spanish yells, play Spanish games,
and write and act Spanish plays.
The Spanish Club which meets Monday
during clearing hour work Spanish cross word
puzzles, reads Spanish jokes, and does many
other things which make the study of Spanish
more pleasant and interesting.

A Prize Winner
UR school is proud to announce that one
of our former pupils who is attending
Saginaw High School, won the first of the
three prizes offered by the Saginaw Transit
Company for the best essay under the name,
"TheVa1ue of Street Car and Bus Service in the
Upbuilding of a City."
Her name is Cleota Thomas and she lives
at 606 Cherry St. We surely hope she has the
same luck at similar try outs at other prizes.
The prize that she won was 35.00. Below is her
The Value of Street Car and Bus Service in
the Upbuilding of a City.
"To have street cars and busses in a city is
a great asset and a source of income. A city or
large business firm could not expect to grow if
there were no transportation facilities for the
people. It also enables industries to be located
farther out of the city, Where property and taxes
are lower. Workmen would not Walk a great dis-
tance to work and therefore busses and street
cars could transport them. A city with good
transportation facilities for the people will grow
much faster than a city without.
"Attractive busses and street cars, such as
Saginaw has, also help to make a city beautiful.
They draw the attention of tourists and visitors
and give them a favorable impression of the city.
That is why busses and street cars aid in the
upbuilding of a city by promoting business."

In far away Nebraska
'Neath the California skies
Lives my Oklahoma sweetheart
With the Massachusetts eyes.
She's a native of Virginia
In Kentucky she was born
She lived all her life in Minnesota
On a Mississippi farm.
We met one night in South Carolina
Near the Texas border line,
And with tales of home in Indiana
I won my Utah girl divine.
Now we'll go to old New Hampshire
In Oregon to wed
And P11 love my dear Wyoming rose
Till the day that I am dead.

My Idea of an Ideal Wardrobe
ID you ever hear of a girl who wasn't
especially interested in her Wardrobe? l
never did, and I never hope to. Every girl
in her teens thinks she must have an appropri-
ate costume for every occasion, so I shall proceed
to tell about my idea of an ideal wardrobe.
First of all, the wardrobe should contain
three or four simple sport dresses for school.
Nothing elaborate or formal is sensible for a
girl to wear to school. Therefore, we shall
dress our model in a very simple jersey dress
of tan with tan silk hose and oxfords. A
bright green handkerchief in the pocket of the
dress makes the costume much more striking.
Agirl must also have a plaited skirt to
Wear with flashy sweaters. In order to wear
this outfit one must have three or four blouses
and a for-in-hand tie which goes well with the
Now let us dress our model for an afternoon
bridge party or tea. A light, fluffy dress with
short sleeves made of silk crepe or georgette is
very becoming for this occasion. Light silk
hose and black patent leather, or satin pumps
and a simple little silk hat will complete the
costume. Mesh or bead bags are often carried.
If our model was to go to a formal dance
we should dress her in a light colored chiffon,
sleeveless dress with a light bodice and a full,
fluffy, petaled skirt. Silver chiffon hose and
silver pumps are very appropriate, although hose
to match the dress and black satin pumps are
also becoming. A simple light-colored, wrap-
around coat completes the formal attire of our
For hiking and camping a girl should wear
tweed knickers, a bright sweater, a small felt
hat, heavy wool socks and oxfords or hiking
As for necessary accessories, such as dainty
handkerchiefs, pins, ties, and scarfs, they are
very necessary to complete a girl's wardrobe.
A Scotchman and a Jew were in the habit
of coming late to church services fafter the
collection was taken upl. One day the minister
thought he would fool them so he waited till
they came in before he had the collection taken
up. Just as soon as the collection plate was be-
ing passed the Scotchman fainted and the Jew
carried him out. '
