In spite of us, although we easily penetrate the disguise, for the life of us We cannot tell which these camouflaged verbs arc supposed to be. As do so many enemy agents they muddle us up mentally until we cannot think clearly. By earnest endeavor we are slowly learning to place them. English Llternfnre "TIs better to have loved and lost Than never to have loved at all." This conclusion reached by Tennyson after a long period of grief over his friend, Arthur Hallam who had died could easily be of comfort to those of us left bereaved today. The deep understanding of human emotion shown by Tennyson here is conveyed again more strongly in "Crossing The Bar." And we today say with him— "I hope to see my Pilot face to face When I have crossed the bar." Spooeh "Ah. all the world's a stage On which every man plays a part." And we are in earnest learning to play well our parts. At P. T. A. next Wednesday we plan to present a short skit "Why Teachers Go Nuts." A J!.U!e Inter, prubrtufy on Wednesday the fifteenth, we will present two one-act plays. Needless to say we have much to learn— make-up, stage balance, stage setting, costumes—and lines! This with our regular speeches and word study keeps us busy. Biology . "A stitch In time saves nine." In recent weeks we have concentrated almost solely on a combination of human physiology and first aid. To many of us the knowledge that we can do anything about accidents is new. A few Incidents of the year have demonstrated to us clearly that a knowledge of first aid is useful and more or less necessary. As a result wo are earnestly applying ourselves.
