THE ANNUAL REFLECTOR

HY we study Geography. - A great
many say, "Why do we study
geography?" One reason is to
understand the trade relations between
countries of the world. The United States
must know where to buy surplus -wool. We
might go to' China for it. Would we get it
there? No! of course not but we could get
silk, tea, and a variety of other things. We
do not only want to know the location of
places but also what people are producing.
, Traveling is another reason for study-
ing geography. A great many people from
all parts of the world travel. However
they would enjoy their trip much more if
they knew the conditions of the people and
the kind of place visited.
Almost every country one goes to has
some different crop. Naturally you would
want to know what this crop is. Usually
when your father or mother's work is done
they read the paper. Maybe it is telling
about a ship wreck about 20 degrees south
latitude and 35 degrees east longitude,
Would you know where it was without a
map? No! Not exactly but you would
know just about where it was. Suppose you
saw an articletellingaboutSydney,Austral-
ia.Would you wonder where it was? Why
no, you say, "It is a big wool port in the
southeastern part of Australia." These are
only a few of the manv reasons for study-
ing geography putl will leave it to you to
find them either in class or at home.
What we have been doing in geography.
When we first came to Central Junior we
wondered why we were studying about our
country when we already had done so in
the fifth grade. We soon stopped worry ing
for we found out and the reason proved
quit interesting. We found that while we
were studying the United States we were
taking in all of the Economic regions and
also like regions in other countries of the
world. When we studied the middle west
our problem was: "Is the Middle West
the most independent civilized section as
geographers have said?" In studying
about the problem we also took the com-
Later when we studied about cotton we
took in Egypt,China and India besides
United States. Most of the countries where
cotton is grown we found are between 30
degrees north and 30 degrees south of the
equator. During our study of cotton we
decided that Great Britain leads in the
manufacture of this industry. She is buy-
ing most of her raw cotton from us. We
already know that Great Britain has a great

, Authors We Have Studied
In our 7A home room in 201 we have
studied about famous authors and their
works. Our literature class has read stor-
ies from Hawthorne, Irving, Shakespeare,
O'Henry, Dickens and some poems by
Probably the most interesting work was
the study of excerpts from Dickens. We
studied from a great many of his books.
Washington Irving, spoken of as "The
FatherofAmerican Literature," contributed
"The Legend of Sleepy Hollow." This story
brought out the keen humor Irving pos-
We' read "The Great Stone Face," a fan-
tastic story by Hawthorne.
Shakespeare provided "The Tempest,"
and "As You Like It." Both are made into
story form by Charles and Mary Lamb,
originally plays from Shakespeare.
O'Henry QWi1liam Sidney Porterj gave
us "The Gift of the Magi."
And now about the authors themselves.
O'Henry was a Carolinian. Hawthorne,
from New England, gives us in his stories
many wonderful descriptions of his native
soil, as did Irving who lived along the Hud-
son near New York. Dickens, Shakespeare,
Charles and Mary Lamb were all from

Many stutents are discouraged because
they find on their cards marks which in
their mind are lower than they deserve.
How unfair the teacher is, is our first
thought. But is the teacher at fault? Read
how teachers mark and maybe you will
think you are wrong. See if you check up.
Are you obedient?
Have you the right attitude?
Is your work neat?
Is your work done without much assis-
Do you show interest in your work?
Have you perseverance?
If you are 10075 in all these things it's

many possessions. They wanted to be ready
so they could get raw cotton in case of war
or any other hinderance so they have been
experimenting with some kinds of cotton.
They have just about or will soon be our
r'val. Even so we are not worryng about it
because they are not raising cotton in all
their possessions. What few places they
have that grow cotton do not have as good
soil or climate as we have.
Just lately we took Australia as we
were studying about the sheep raised on
the great plains in the United States. We
found that leading ports of wool were:
Melbourne, Sydney, and Adelaide. Most
of the sheep are raised west of the moun-
tains.Rabbits are a terrible pestto the sheep
because they eat most of their grass. The
men in Australia catch hundreds and
hundreds of them at a time. After they are
killed they are sent to England. Their
flesh is eaten and the fur is used to make
felt. Rabbit is quite an important export
but we did not make a study of it.
We are just now studying about forests.
So far we found they are mostly in Alaska,
Europe, Central Africa, South America and
the United States. When we have finished
the course we hope to have a general idea
of the trade relations of the outstanding
Pity the Poor Letter E
Some one has decided that the letter "E"
is the most unfortunate letter in the English
alphabet because it is always out of cash,
forever in debt, never out of danger, and
in hell all the time. No little credit is due,
however, in that it is never in war, always
in peace, and we are deeply indebted to
this little letter since it is the beginning
of existence, and the commencement of
ease, and the end of trouble. Without it
there would be no meat, no life, and no
heaven, it is the center of honesty, and
although it starts off in error it ends by
making love perfect.
