Our pet pigeon decided one day last week that he'd been outside looking In long enough and proceeded to walk la through the window. First he warmed his feet on the radiator, winked at James Beckwith and yawned. After this display of boredom he flew into the hall from where the great or- notholgist, Jamie Summers, eventually retrieved him. Jamie put him out the window and since then the bird has not been seen. Rumor has it that he feels very put out and is contemplating a return bout with our window. ft *«* cw*e* to**** dowft the ftfttfe f« tfc* mofnfnf perhaps tMM are some &t tt . there is i»e class *fc&r e pupn* t* ft*. fa frofct o* (M room. ?ft *W **"* together, tit t tt tfee face and generally ftttt fright fcoft't ^ afctmed. «*fy the process by wfttefc i- cent ptptlt aft trained to become treat fame orators.

He was sent as I an envoy to Pyrrhus concerning an exchange of prisoners, pytrhus tempted him with many gifts and much gold and although he was a poor man Fabricius did not turn traitor to his country and finally carried out his mission. The second Was of Regulus, a man whose word could be depended upon till the end. He led an army against the Carthaginians and they captured him. He returned to Rome later with a group of envoys but would not enter the city because he thought that he did not have the rights of a citizen. He returned to Carthage later, though he could have stayed in Rome if he had not given his word to his captors that he would return it his mission were unsuccessful. Then, too, Appius Claudius appeared In a story. He was a blind msf but stood up for his country despite his handicap.

For too long a time have we considered the school a tedious institution which we are forced by law, habit, and duty to attend. Teachers are looked upon •as rivals in wit and intelligence, in many cases and often as unfeeling beings used for observing and hindering reasons only. Fearing to use today's byword we humbly mention tbe present financial condition as one point which makes ridiculous the above mentioned attitude, Laboring adults are paying for tbe maintenance of our school. Do bard- working individuals part wjth their earnings so that we may endeavor to idly and pjeaaursbly kill time thirty hours per week. As modern and broadminded young people we should be able to gee beyond tbe senior diploma, beyond tbe last study, course. We should be able to bring from with in ourselves our beat effort? to Ing, development, and appreciation, we should experience a feeling of 4uty toward our state, community, and self, Billie McNulty, Fourth Grade, Last week jn Spelling we re. viewed tbe months of the year a.n4 days.of tbe weefe.

My father took this litter wtth some of his pigs to the State Fair In Des Molnes. Here my best gilt was second prize gilt In the 4-H class. When father returned home with these hogs we put them In the Mills county 4-H hog sale. When I realized how much pleasure I had received from this litter, also the financial returns, I decided to buy two bred sows from my father and enter the 4- H club another year. These two gilts raised fifteen pigs for me, ten gilts and five boars. I chose three gilts and one boar from the better litter and showed them at the Mills County Fair. They were first prize 4-H Hampshire litter, first and third prize gilt and first prize boar In the 4-H classes, also first prize get of sire and produce of dam in tbe open class, winning in all around forty dollars. These pigs were sold in tbe 4-H club sale. In 1929 I bought two bred sows. These two sows bad fifteen pigs, I showed tbe best three gilts and best boar, from one Utter, at the Mills County Fair, This llt Omaha show. These six barrows won a second fn the 4-H eta**, *nd a second, a third *nd a fouftft In the open elans. They were sold at auction after the show. I traded my two aged sows for three bred gilts and Again entered the 4-H pig ctab In 1938. These three gifts did very wen for me, averaging litters of seven each. I chose three gilts and a boar from the best litter to show at the Mlfis County Fair. There they took four firsts and four sec- oftds fn the 4-H and open classes. The boar was junior champion in the 4-H class. This litter was first prize 4-H Hampshire litter. 1 traded the gilts from these three Utters to my father for two dairy heifers. The boar pigs I castrated and fitted three of them for the A-Sar-Ben stock show, t also purchased some Chester White barrows and fitted them for the Omaha show. These six barrows placed second, third, and fourth n the 4-H class and took three fourths In the open class. They were sold In the Ak-Sar-Ben auction. By this time I was very much nterested In live stock and was o start my show litter for another year. This year my 4-H project ncluded two sows which had sixteen pigs. 1 showed the best litter at the County Fair. Again I had first prize 4-H Hampshire litter and also three firsts, five seconds and one fourth in the 4-H class. This year at the Omaha show my ,hree Hampshire barrows took two firsts and a third In the open class and 1 received a fifth In the herdsman's special class. In 1932 1 had only one Hampshire sow and litter because of my Vocational Agricultural projects and calf club work. She produced a fine litter for me which 1 showed at the County Fair. This litter won three firsts and a second; also first prlzo 4-H Hampshire Utter. For the Ak-Sar- Ben stock show I fitted six bar* rows, throe mediums and three heavy.
