TI-is ANNUAL REFLECTOR Practical Values By N W. Chalice AST year we outlined a program of work for 1928-29. It was individualize- tion within the group. Teachers and pupils have helped to start the work. Much good work has been done by both. Much remains to be done. Let us carry it further. To do so requires an analysis of the values prized by the world in general, by business in particular. , You seek to purchase an automobile. Some one points out the good qualities of a car-you buy it. You are making faith in fellow man practical by buying the car. Or you carefully weigh advantages and disad. vantages, mostly obtained through exper- iences of others again-you make hzidi and truth a practical asset. Or you realize there are manygood automobiles and you proceed to find the prettiest, most artistic, most comfortable model. Now you make art and design,-you make the aesthetic sense pract- ical. What inner qualities at first thought held as sentimental, on later consideration, become most practical in the world of affairs. Are employers seeking young men and women with dreams due the genius of an Edison-perhaps so, but not in large numbers. Rather, all employers are seek- ing men and women with courage, bravery, strength. Oh! We do not mean the showy bravery which makes men stand and exchange blows though that is sometimes a practical asset. We mean the ability to stay on, to accomplish, to overcome all difficulty, to watch the faltering brothers and sisters stumble and give up while the brave one does things. We mean that strength which, with the help of courage, enables you to weather the storms of life, to keep up and doing, though the "road is long." There must be courage to under- take-and to complete. Business men want young people with patience, those a little loatheto talk of wrong to speak hurtfully ofothers or of themselves. Thequality of kindness inthought and action is practical. This gives the power to meet people properly and treat elders or unfor- tunates with helpfulness and respect. Try to reason out a practical value in kindness. How will it mean money? Finally we may list intuition as a practicalsentiment. How would you rate the the ability to sense a need and a means of satisfying it-a service to humanity? Is such a quality practical? Does the saleslady use it? The merchant? The engineer? These qualities are not far away. They are to be attained at will. But sometimes they require Will power-a vision of the future backed by practical habits. If you would be successful take these, with Mr. Guest, as your goals: MY GOALS A little braver when the skies are gray, A little stronger when the road seems long, A little more of patience through the day, And not so quick to magnify a wrong. A little kinder, both of thought and deed, A little gentler with the old and weak, Swiiter to sense another's pressing need, And not so fast the hurtful phrase to speak. These are my goals-not Hung beyond my power Not dreams of glory, beautiful but vain. Not the great heights where buds of genius flower, But simple splendors which I ought to gain. These I can do and be from day to day Along the humble pathway where I plod, So that at last when I am called away I need not make apologies to God. PAGE EIGHT

THE ANNUAL REFLECTOR Reflector Contest and I hope we can have one soon again to give the pupils who did not participate in the 'drst one a chance. An exceptionally good story written by a prize winner was "When Daddy Comes Home" by Shirley Coy, who is now in Senior High. I am glad to be able to say that our band and orchestra are increasing in size every year and are occasionally giving very good chapel programs. I think that the semester of February, 1929, to June 1929, is one to be remembered especiali because of the important things that too place. For instance the cantata, given in March at the City Auditorium, that required hard work on the part of Mrs. Ulman and Mr. Flueckinger, as well as the pupils of our school and city. Our best chapel program of the season was "The Nifty Shop" given by the faculty members. It was well done and enjoyed immensely by everyone. Our Friday afternoon shows are other enjoyable events for our school. Among the most outstanding ones were: "The Fair Co-ed" featuring Marion Davies and John Mack Browng the story told of humorous college life. "The Scarlet Letter" featuring Lillian Gish and Lars Hanson, told a story of early American colonial life, "The Flam- ing Forest" featuring Renee Adoree, was one of the best and most exciting. I hope that everyone in Central Junior High School will work harder for a bigger and better Reflector every year. Thank you, Beatrice Heindel awww The Bugle Song The following is a study from Tennyson's "Bugle Song." The author tries to paint a picture in the first verse. He describes a castle with the last rays of sun falling on its wall. Snowy mountains, and sunlit lakes are in the background, with a leaping cat- aract flowing by. He begs the bugle to blow and answer the dying echoes. The author hears faint clear notes going farther away. He again implores the bugle to answer the echoes that are dying. He accounts for the hearing of the far away notes as the horns of Elfiand. Tennyson tells us that our echoes or our thoughts are forever rolling from soul to soul, and are forever growing. The echoes of the bugle die but our words and actions never die. Ellen Dent. ' Puma uaour PAGE SEVEN

THE ANNUAL REI-'LECTOR ssvmrm mums GROUP. sscnorl ou: 9 Andoxius Adventure With the Cruel King HILE HERCULES was returning from taming some wild horses he passed through a large forest where he found a tiny babe whom he decided to keep and raise. Hercules named this babe Andoxius which means "small one." Andoxius was certainly small, When he was twelve years old he had stopped growing and was but four feet high. But there was a reason for this and herein lies the tale. A cruel king who was Herucles' cousin and who made Hercules do all these gigantic tasks was taking care of little An- doxius while Hercules was after the war- like Queen Hippolyta of the Amazons. This cruel King was naturally jealous of the noble Hercules and so decided to take re- venge on little Andoxius whom Hercules loved very much. One day the king dropped Andoxius and injured his spine. Hercules was very sad and troubled about this because he wanted Andoxius to become a mighty warrior. Andoxius had spent the time in training just as any youth of this time so that his arms were develop- ed wonderfully. He was the best javelin thrower in Greece. - Now all this time Hercules was trying to find out who or what had injured An- doxius and was about to give up all hope when a servant who had been mistreated by the cruel king told Hercules how the king had done this. When Hercules found out it was his cruel cousin who had done this deed, he tried to ponder out the most terrible way in which to punish him. But Andoxius who had heard this decided on a way of his own. A He found the cruel king walking along beside this great wall where there were many creepers and vines. Immediately he threw one of his javelins and inned the king to the wall by the robe. Then taking apparently no aim he placed a javelin right under the left armpit of the king. You can imaiixne the suffering the cruel king was going t ough with javelins flying around his body, hemming him in and pinn- ing his robe tight around him. But Hercules carne to the rescue and unpinning his wicked cousin, the king, he took him down to where Pluto, King of the Underworld ruled and tied him between two great rocks where he could watch the suffering of other wicked people. If you everlmeet Quicksilver ask him if Hercules' cousin is still there fwhich he probably isl. As for Andoxius you will probably hear more of this adventure with Hercules.
