Jay Cox Gives Review of 'Grapes of Wrath' at Study Club Meeting The Scottville Women's Study club met Monday afternoon at the home of Mrs. E. M. Briggs with Mrs. Briggs and Mrs. N. I. Johnson as hostesses. The program for the day was a book review, with Mrs. I. L. Hunt as chairman of the program committee. The review was given by Mrs. J. Jay Cox who gave Stein'bach's "Grapes of Wrath," one of the most noted books of the time. Mrs. Cox save the story of the immigration to California by the people of Oklahoma and others in the Dust Bowl district, after their own places were ruined, giving in a vivid way the hardships and the sorrows of the people, the overdrawn promises and the unrest and crime that follows any such movement. Mrs. Cox gave a most sympathetic and under- standine; portrayal of the characters in the story, bringing out the best in them and also showing what circumstances do in the development of the different traits in humanity. At the close of her review, Mrs. Cox was given a vote of appreciation for her talk. During the .business session, a discussion about the use of the dishes at Community hall brought out the fact that while the dishes were replaced in the hall in May, so that there were 200 of each, it was found by a check-up last week that there were only 159 cups left in the hall. The same condition is being found among the other articles left there, including the silverware and the cooking utensils. During the business session the name of Mrs. Ward Pratt was presented for membership and accepted. Mrs. W. J. Cook gave a report on several articles from the Club Woman magazine. Mrs. W. G. Alway and Mrs. J. T. O'Hearn conducted a most interesting handwriting test, as given at the district convention at Traverse City recently. The next meeting will be held at the home of Mrs. C. E. Chil- bcrg, with Mrs. A. LaPointe as co-hostess. Mesdames W. J. Cook and J. Aleinik are leaders for the Thanksgiving program.

Annual Thanksgiving Dinner Held by PT-A JONES (Victory) SCHOOL.— The Parent-Teacher association of Jones school enjoyed its annual Thanksgiving dinner at the schoolhouse Friday evening, Nov. 10, under the supervision of Mrs. Claus Chilberg and Mrs. George Chilberg. Following the dinner, a short business meeting was held by the president, Mrs. Walter Gowan. The following program, prepared by Mrs. Percy Gordon and Mrs. Ben Thompson, was pre- Hc Switched to Beef _ Six years ago one Iowa farmer got tired of milking: a herd of 20 dairy cows twice a day every day in order to sell fifty dollars worth of butterfat per cow per year. So he switched to the herd of 20 good grade Hereford cows shown above—feeds them nothing but pasture and roughage—and uses the grain to turn out a crop of 900-pound baby beeves each year. His beef calves only need to sell at 6c per pound to equal his previous income from butterfat—he saves all of the labor of milking and handling milk—and he claims that his beef project requires no more acres for roughage and grain than his dairy herd required. Scottville School News KINDERGARTEN NEWS Last week James Reeds brought his tame rabbit, Brownie, to visit school a couple of days. The children were very excited. Some had never seen a rabbit before. They found out what a rabbit eats, how he hops and how his fur feels. The children in older grades that have classes in the Kindergarten room in the afternoons were very much interested in the rabbit, too. We learned a song about "Our Bunny" and hopped like a rabbit. Each one tried to copy his name from the name card. Now a few practice printing their names on the black board. The new room helpers for this week are: Playhouse, Doreen Quick; water plants, Lorna Dumas; papers, James Reeds and in charge of the program were: Jean Wallace, Joseph Levickas and Patricia Reader. In music class we learned some Thanksgiving songs and short songs about safety. We are all going to try and have drawing boards for art class this week. Last week our lesson was on printing. HEALTHFUL LIVING For the past week the Healthful Living class has been studying the skeletal system. The functions of the system were discussed, namely: Protection, locomotion and support. A discussion relative to the relationship between the bony framework and posture was held. It was decided that correct posture habits were necessary es- HANDY CHISELERS The question has been asked, "How does the plan of pupil- personnel shop organization help the students?" Here are some of the things which we hope the plan will contribute. 1. It contributes directly to increase educational values in our industrial arts subjects. 2. Provides opportunity for directing, supervising and aiding in the activity of others. 3. It develops co-operation. 4. It tends to give character training and develop leadership. 5. The boys learn to respect | authority and to understand the problems that confront the employer and employee in real life situations. The experiences gained by pupils under a pupil personnel plan of organization are at least as educative as anytliting provided for in the strictly constructive activities of shop work. This week over on the metal bench I see many articles being made of tin cans, such as ash trays, oil cans and even an electric lamp which is under construction by Howard Bailey. The woodworking boys have completed their breadboards which were shaped like fish, pigs, dogs, and what not, are now making projects of their own designs. A very fine night stand is being built by Ivan Anderson. Donald Tonn, another second year student is building a sewing basket which gives him much practice on the lathe. CORLISS KORTGE, Publicity Manager for the year. Of course, a budget to suit every type of farm and every type of feeding in the county cannot be found, but it is hoped that over a period of years that the boys will take the original budgets and change them to suit their own farms and thereby in the future be able to very accurately budget their feeds for the winter.

Sodium is a typical metal because it is malleable, has 1 a luster, and is a conductor of heat and electricity. The reaction of sodium with water is very striking. Potassium is another active metal, much like sodium except that it is softer, melts at a lower temperature and is more active. These two elements belong to a group known as the alkali nietals. A typical nonmetal is chlorine. Chlorine is a greenish-yellow gas, heavier than library table. They Have built an ai r and it is very poisonous. Indian village with its teepees !
