(We hope they can take It): Who sings daily to the fifth petiod assembly: "Please, please, lend youf big ears to my pleas and keep still?" Who laughs at nis own jokes five minutes after every one else has forgotten them? Who has the cute habit ot blushing at almost nothing? Who prowls up and down the assembly aisles like a detective after his man? Who leaves the assembly every morning on some mysterious errand? Girls in Home Ee Classes Serve Fifty Guests at Tea In spite ot a very rainy afternoon there were about fifty guests present at the tea given by the Home EC classes Friday afternoon. An extra large display of garments made by the girls during the past year was shown. The Home EC III class has neen studying Child Care the past week. As a climax to the study each girl is to bring a child of pre-scbool age to Home EC class Tuesday to a party. We are having a short time for games, a story hour, and refreshments.

When |we were discussing the words, ' " Dtograph, autograph, dicto- " ' have a dictograph ma- ifctiihe Installed in each classroom "for use at test time. Miss Hams' P»ers did not seem to wholly approve the idea and suggested that the classroom would appear a bit noisy. So, instead, the class agreed to be satisfied with detachable earphones.

Juniors Are GuetU of the Seniors at Frolic The junior editor in behalf of the junior class wishes to express their appreciation to the seniors for the midnight frolic last Thursday night. A good time was enjoyed by all and the comical "kid" costumes caused much hilarious laughter during the progress ot the evening's entertainment. Appropriate refreshments were ice cream cones, animal crackers, all-day suckers, and punch served In pop bottle*, Recently a girl who usually wears a multitude ot bobby pins to hold back her tresses broke out with a bad case ot long curls. We can give no information concerning the case or its seriousness as one girl has had such a case for several years. Two other girls have received curly hair which looks to be natural in every way. I will now tell how some girls take care of their hair during the long and tedious school hours. Three girls can always be seen running a comb o r fingers through their hair while others like to make fancy curls on the aide known as "spit" curls. The girls also use bobby pins and hair ribbons to hold back their hair. Some girls like to let the wind rumple their hair so that they will have a really good excuse for making themselves pretty with a comb. The boys, however, do not .take such pains with their hair as a bottle of oil will do wonders and make them look like skinned rabbits. Annella Waller.

Farmer* Buying Power DUplaya a Sharp Gain Two months ago the purchasing power of farm products in terms of other commodities was at the lowest point in twenty- three yean of statistical records of the Bureau of Agricultural Economic*, says the U, 8. Department of Agriculture. There was a slight gain in March but in April sharp gains in prices of farm products lifted the index to 63. In April a year ago the index was 62. The effect ot abandonment of the gold standard by this country, depreciation, ot the dollar in to legislative action, the coincident rise in stocks and in many basic commodity prices, has been good for farmejrs so tar, says the bureau in its May 1 report on the agricultural situation. Wheat and other grains, hides, butter, and cotton prices have advanced 10 to 40 per cent. But the Improvement in prices has been selective, the bureau points out. Lire stock has not yet felt the influence of rising prices as have the important cash crops which are sensitive to world markets, Yet butter, one of the principle live stock products, advanced about one-third in price at New York, This market rise In butter, says the bureau, occurred in the face of a milk situation so serious that it has led to "strikes" and serious disturbance la Wisconsin and New Yprk, and even to the fixing of milk prices by legislation, Bag* for Wool Shipping mid Twine Are Avails "able Farmers needing bags and twjne for shipping their wool to market may get them at the Farm Bureau office.

Chinch traps promise to bo a pest in southern Iowa counties this summer unless a wet. rainy May and June Interfere with their normal development, A. D. Worthtngton, extension entomologist at Iowa State college, says. A sarvey Jnst made In southern Iowa indicates that chinch bags came through the winter in j good condition. The two tiers of counties east ot Page and Adams have the heaviest Infestation, although some trouble may occur In counties north of that area. Chinch bngs have begun to fly from their winter Quarter* of grass clumps and protected places in woodlands, hedges and ditches. They wilt feed In small pratn and lay eggs which require about thirty to forty dftys for development. The females o! thin new brood will again lay egg.i rm small grain In June, this will bring the chinch bug population to peak numbers In July. Since each female may lay an average ot 200 eggs it is possible for thousands ot bugs to develop from each female which over- winters successfully. All grass crops such as small grain, corn, and sudan grass are | subject to attack. Because chinch bugs teed by inserting their beaks Into the pith of the plant It Is Impossible to poison them. Legumes are Immune to chinch bug attack Mr. Worthington said. It soybeans are to be planted they should be grown adjoining the small grains and between •mall grains and corn where possible. This plan will serve to protect the corn somewhat when the bugs begin to migrate in July. The only other control method known, other than destroying the harboring places for chinch bugs, which must be done in the tafl and winter, is the running ot tar and dust barriers In the summer when the bugs are active. Collections ot bugs along the barriers are killed in various ways. {gin nnd characteristics of the Shorthorn breed of cattle. The question of a colt club for the boys was brought np by the connty agent, Brace KHpatr'icfr. and was thought very advisable by the clnb members as a good booster for Mills connty at the annual Mills County Fair.
