In taking our place as a teacher and' being confronted with the numerous problems and difficulties of each pupil we found that situations stand entirely different than we expected. Being flexible in presenting a lesson we discovered was absolutely necessary to make our lesson a complete success. Many times circumstances .will arise unexpectedly and we must fit ourselves to the situation. Lessons were taught by individual members under the supervision of our critic teacher. The lessons taught were; Reading, Arithmetic, Hygiene, Geography, Language, and Spelling, Several (Picture studies were presented, ajso a sand table story hour. Tbese lessons were taught to pupils from the first, second, third, fourth, and fifth grades. After having had this experience Qf teaching we feel that we have accomplished something, since we have developed a skill lu questioning and illustrating aad distributing time economi- 1 cally, we also developed a skill bf eelfrconfidence, initiative, and np}se. A flemonstraHon in free hand najper cutting was presented to tfte thtr4 grade by Miss Bam* njers.

During the program Miss McQueen sang two solos: "If 1 Only Knew'" and "1 Passed by Your Window," Mrs. Gugeler gave a talk on "Threads of Gold." She explained that some of these were "eyes that see," "ears that hear," "the heart that feels," "intellectual understanding or the interpreting mind," "courage," "patience," "the will that persists," and the "confidence that dares dream dreams." Miss Hammers concluded the meeting by reading announcements. The Girl Reserve health contest which caused much interest among members of the Girl Reserves, ended last week. The awards are to be presented soon. Each girl must have a score of ninety per cent in order to receive an award, Jane Fletcher, s health chairman, and her committee, Marian Benton, Charlotte Wederqulst, and Dorothy Oalllher, have checked the health charts and have found that more than twenty girls are eligible to receive the award. Letter wrftfftg and the tojrtca that lead op to ft have been ctrr main Snbje«t« in Engttsn 1 this last week. Leading np to fetter wrftrhg we hare studied among other things topic sentences of paragraphs. Each class member btottght a few paragraphs from ft newspaper editorial for tire study of these topic sentences. We find that all good editorial writers stay very close to their t&pte. Following this we prepared a few short paragraphs for their comparison and for study of paragraph formation. Some very interesting subjects were elaborated on by the class members. Among others were those abotit exercise, different books, spofts, good sportsmanship, and school spirit. This paragraph formation will benefit us a great deal in our study of letter writing. F. F. A. New* a* few people have started making their own puzzles. The Vocational Agriculture boys have been making them at the rate of two or three a day, We have a jigsaw with an electric motor attached. Any suitable picture is pasted on thin wood or cardboard and cut out to suit oneself. At first the greatest expense seemed to be In buying blades for the jigsaw but with a little practice one learns how to run the machine without breaking so many blades. In a short time everyone will have all the jigsaws he can use, In the klttenball tournament, among the .Future Farmers, the team known as the juniors seems to be taking the lead. They have defeated the senior team twice, The score for last Wednesday was juniors is, seniors 6. Carl Holden has made a large > hotbed to raise sweet potato plants for his own use, He probably will raise four to five hundred plants. Senior Gossip During the Friday class meet there was a heated discussion and final decision on a class flower, One member insisted upon the dandelion but the purple and gold irJs overruled. The juniors are now discovering that the senior colors are to glorify the water tower for days to come. TOO bad, juniors, but maybe you'll be seniors some diay! During current event discussion for History Monday someone brought up the "beer question." Mr, Herts $°»tenjpiaJ;ed fpr a time and then suddenly exclaim* ed: "Well, there's one thine I especially like afeout the beer Sophomores Debate Almost all of us like to argue, especially a woman, but the entire sophomore class is learning how to organize arguments Into a debate. Our first subjects are to be "All High students should be charged a tuition fee ot five dollars a year." All boys Should be required to take a semester of cooking, was a topic chosen but it seems nobody would take the affirmative. (Feature seeing some of these high school boys In white aprons and headgear la* boriously figuring proportions of recipes and calories!) Nevertheless this topic Is de- beatable and debating affords a wonderful opportunity for many to expand upon a theory so long kept concealed mind. in their own Home Economics The sophomore class has been preparing luncheon desserts this week.

W, McDonald, extension specialist in sheep and wool at Iowa State college. Many chaffy and seedy wools which go into the reject class would have gone into the best grade , if . the grower had used care In handling the wool at shearing time. Shear on a clean board or canvass and,, use precaution to, keep the wool clean. Remove all tage and dirt and roll the fleece with the flesh side out. Care in rolling the fleece so that only the flesh side is exposed adds much to its attractiveness and ultimate sale. One string of paper twine •wrapped both ways around the fleece is usually sufficient to tl3 it unless the wool is very short. The wool should be tied so it holds together Into a lofty bundle but should never be tied into a tight compact ball, The old wool tying bax is to be discomv aged for this reason. Never tie two fleeces together. They often may be of different in such cases both be thrown, into the | grades and, fleeces will lower grade. Pead wool stuffed Into the center of live fleeces is easily seen by the grader 8n( j he must take time to pull it out. It there are many such fleeces he may throw all into the dead wool plains, since the price of feeds Is relatively lower than pork and because the sow is seriously weakened by this suckling. One of the best practices In feeding farrowing sows is to start the new mother on a limited feed ot whole oats some twelve to twenty-four hours after the pigs have been born. Bows fed whole oats for about a week after farrowing do not "overfeed" the pigs, A good plan is to not "push" a sow until her pigs afe old enough to exercise considerably, says Professor Culbertson. Most sows may be safely put on full feed when the pigs are ten days to two weeks old. Oats are a little too bulky for a sow who has to feed eight or nine husky pigs and corn will probably serve the purpose better. Oats may be fed with the corn for variety. Besides this gralv ration the sow should have some green legume pasture and a protein and mineral supplement. Sklmmilk is a valuable grain supplement and Is probably the premier suckling feed, animal husbandry experts say. Meat meal tankage is a good substitute for all or part of the sklmmllk. A good dry lot balancing mixture la: meat meal tankage, 60 .pounds; linseed or soybean meal, 25 pounds; and alfalfa meal, 25 pounds.

Sheep: Conditions Indicate ft substantial recovery in lamb prices dnrlng the nest few weeks with the possibility of highest prices for the feeding season coming dnrlng late April and early- May, Fed lambs will be relatively scarce and a substantial enrtafT- l ment in supplies of early spring lamhs Is expected. This situation makes ft desirable to fully finish lambs that are nn feed and hold back marketInes as far as weight limitations make possible. Tankage Goes Further When Fed with Grain Tankage can be made to go farthest In pork production by full feeding a combination of tankage and grains to the young pigs until they are off to a good start of fiftj- pounds or better in weight. After that it goes farthest and does most for the growing and fattening pigs if fed on good pasture. A quarter pound of tankage per pig per day on good pasture produced more rapid gains than from .4 to .r> of a pound per day fed on fair pasture In the county pig feeding demonstrations last year.

As heavy cattle supplies decrease and the better grades assume more normal proportions the fat cattle market IB expected to show further strength during the next several weeks. Tho situation during the next six weeks calls for orderly marketing and the topping out of finished cattle, particularly heifers and mature steers. Hogg; The market continues to work upward and seasonally is still in a strong position. This will continue for the next four weeks with highest prices expected around early April, All weights are selling close together and it will probably be late May before fall pigs become seasonally excessive, and from then until early July is the period to be avoided. The spring decline in prices, however, is expected to be much less than normal and followed by substantial improvement during the summer, reach- Trtlfcfiinevirt during Aug- lar spent for It than a full feed insofar as keeping down cost of gains Is concerned. Where It is deslretf to limit tho tankage It may be hand fed at the rate of .2 pound per pig dally. Another good way is to mix nighty pounds ground oats to twenty pounds of tankage and self feed the mixture with corn on pasture. Mixing the tankage and ground oats in this way serves the double purpose of cutting down on the tankage and increasing the amount of oats consumed. Some men mix tankage and whole nats in the self-feeder but usually this results In some waste. On very poor forage or in dry lot n mixture of sixty-five pounds ground oats, twenty-five pounds tankage, and ten pounds alfalfa meal self fed with corn saves some tankage and makes better gains than straight tank- age self fed.
