THURSDAY, DECEMBER 18, 1930 BLYTHEVILLE. (ARK.V COURIER NEWS Pupils Bring Gifts for Poor Instead of Exchanging i Presents. The closing of the Blythevillo [ public schools yesterday fcr a twoj v.ceks Christmas holiday was marked with programs appropriate lo tl« season.In practically all Blades the pupils gave gilts for pcor families instead ol exchanging with friends and the spirit of giving was prominent in the ap-1 jjropriate programs presented yes-! :irday afternoon. j In the senior high school the j senior school class spcnsored the' irgrain as is the custom. A play, "The Christinas Lady of the Big | House written by Miss Luna B. Wilhelm, senior sponsor, was present ::l in five scenes with Orlnci Hutchins, Gccrge Matthews, Wood-1 io\v, Fisher, 1. O. Westurook, Mary Cummings and Bob Burns taking part. A dcuble quartet of Mary Ellen Stevens, Lillian Brlscoc, Virginia Tompkins, Lester Gill, Curtis McCarty, and Otis Osbom sang and Woodrow Fisher and Thslma Worthington, accompanied" by Miss Leone Callicott, played a medley of Christinas carols in violin duets. Simla Claus, with Hie help of the seniors, distributed miniature bells to tte students and faculty members.

Kent, with two companions, went from Nova Scotia to Greenland In a sailboat. The boat wns wrecked on the Greenland coast and hf hiked overland to an Eskimo Eettlii- men.t, lived among the Eskimos for seme lime and then came home uy siearner. j That is the essence of Hie narra-! tlve, It Is adventurous enough, In all conscience; yet this voyage v.'os, like nil really noteworthy voyages, a ipiest for spiritual things. Storms and .shipwrecks were mere Incidents. The excitement ol using thrown en a rocky atid desolate! coast was net half as moving us the excitement of winning the friend-: ship of those authentic stone-nu!.- men, the Eskimos. Tne ocean voy- j age was memorable; but infinitely mure memorable were those days ;of idling in Greenland, where noth-; ' ing of consequence really "happen- j ed." ' All of which, of course, is Just another way of saying that in n book of this kind lhc Important! j thing is not what Imppens so much . I ns it Ls, whom does 11 happen to? ' On any voyage, you sec only what you have within you. It is the- good fortune of the reading public that Mr. Kent has much within. •WK TO KATHRfM CblUtf MAOoH/CA- PAGE Radio Stations Plan Synchronized Broadcast WASHINGTON, <U1>>— A plan lor Eynchnml/allon or the operii- tlon of two or more broadcast transmitters on a bluglo wavelength i has bcvn laid before Ihc- r-ederal liiullo commission.
