XVII GIVES ADDRESS AT COMMERCIAL CLUB GATHERING Claudme Coleman Tells Students About Chamber of Commerce Work. 40 Boys Inducted Into Hi-Y at Y. M. Ceremony Take Pledge to Maintain MILTON MADNESS Milton in large doses hns made i some seniors decidedly Milton con- j scious since Christmas. However, i one senior has scarcely regained j consciousness since he reported on ''Paradise Regained." The point is that in spite ol the ! normal resistance offered to , : a project, the alleged siuceir.s i have admittedly grasped some- ' thing of Milton, the power oC his '•• themes, the artistry of his verse. ' The feat was accomplished by ; serving the Miltonic classics, not by piecemeal bui in their emiie- ties. The tonic was effective. The idea which we should like to put over is that a tas',.o of a classic is not enough. One has to get the feel of the thing, lhat is, enter into the spirit of the writer and his times for only then does the reader begin to do what is facetiously referred to as "developing an appreciation. A more apt term is enjoyment. Such attainment depends upon individual ability and inclination. At any rate the chap who has struggled through the whole of ''Paradise Lost" should know something about it and be abic to report it to his class much better than the person who has read only an excerpt. It may be better to have tested the classics than never to have contacted them, but our opinion is ; that one's time is better spent in ' reading wholes. not parts.

After having been unanimously accepted into the membership of v the club upon recommendation of the membership committee who stressed the character and habits of each the new members repeated the following pledge in unison: "We. the members of the Mason City Hi-Y club in the presence of God and each other, do pledge ourselves to help one another in the keeping of this covenant—to create, maintain and extend throughout the school and community high standards of Christian character and to stand together on and for the platform of Clean Speech, Clean Sports, Clean Scholarship and Clean Living." Marched in Twos. In twos the boys marched hand in hand in front of the white cross standing for thought and action and the red triangle standing for red blooded service to others and for the growth in body, mind and spirit. Each lighted a small candle circling the emblem from the large candle in the middle of the cross and officially became members of the Mason City Hi-Y. Boys inducted into the club were Joe Price, Bill Stoakes, Kenny Kew, Sam Mooney. John Monger, Bob Bush, Elwin Lunning, Ellsworth Burgraff, Leonard Mark, Glenn Fessenden, Clark Gage, Bob Oliver, Russ Felix, Ed CloUse, Vern Rediker, Bob Brisbane, Ray Clough, John Youngblood, Bob Kipper, Bob Brown, Jack Haskins, Warren Dushack, Bob Smith, Chuck Barr, Roger Luther College, Decorah, in double assembly before the high school students and in a special assembly for the college.

"The principle of the wheel is the on'ly one which was originally discovered by man," declared Dr. W. L. Strunk. "The other principles applied by man are all imitated or copied from nature." Didn't Originate It. Dr. Strunk drcwe home his statement by giving several examples from nature. He said tha hitch-hiking was not introduced by man' for the Remora fish has for years had a free ride across the seas by clinging to the sides o. other sea animals. To illustrate that animals copy from others, Dr. Strunk told of a domesticated otter who did no 1 like to go into the water. When the others were swimming he would walk on the sand along the bank. But, when they came oul of the water, rolled in the sand shook themselves and jumped in the air, he did likewise. Dr. Strunk stated that the Bower birds were the only creatures besides humans to have an aesthetic sense for they buiM a perfect bower with colorful and artistic exactness. Presented Mo^ie. Speaking on the subject "A Marvel of Creation,. The Bee" before the Jaysess, Dr. Strunk meanwhile presented a four reel movie entitled "The Realm of the Honey Bee," produced by the department of agriculture. He pointed out that the great mysteries of life are ever before us in our study of the honey bee. Prof. Strunk commented on the various scenes of bee life as they were shown on the screen.
