,AG££lGHt THE MALVfeR* LfeAbfett. MALVtftH, tOWA. ftfjJJRg^ IJ8i E M A I T C HESS TKOtTKO BY THE SECTOR fciTOMSfl JOL4S9 High School Heafa j World Peace Talk i i i 'i ii ' j Noted traveler Explains! Nations* PfoMetns to Sht- i dents Wednesday By AUn »n Val On Wednesday morning the Malrern high school assembled to hear Mr. J. W. Van Kirk speak on the subject of "World Peace." In this talk the speaker explained several world problems to the students which the average person does not know. Mr. Van Kirk was uneasy as to the state of affairs existing among European nations. The students were told that In the next few years It would be their task to help prevent another war among powers which would be far more devastating than the last World war. Mr. Van Kirk, an elderly gentleman, Is not connected with any organization. He has been In all the states of the union and has spoken for his cause in more than 2000 schools throughout the country. In addition he has traveled around the world three times, has met many notables and attended peace conferences such as The Hague conference In 1913. He designed the official flag of the World Court. It consists of a field of blue with white stars representing the nations having membership in the court. Upon a portion of this background are stripes of the rainbow colors and a globe encircled by a white band symbolizing the unity of the world. For a small contribution to the cause he will give to the contributor a replica of the original flag which he designed. Mr. Van Kirk's talk was well accepted and will be of future value In the classroom discussions of history and civics. School Lunch Boxes New Experiment in Home EC. The home economics girls have finished the breakfast unit and are now studying about kitchens and school lunch boxes. They have been drawing kitchen plans and find it is very enjoyable worto A new member, Margaret Ann Buttmann, entered the class this week. This makes a total of 19 girls in the dais. . and they weren't M good M they expected but everything can't be aa one expects it. For Friday they made and ate their lunch in ( the home economics room, bringing anything they wanted besides what they were to make. From what they tell it must have been an enormous lunch and no doubt every high school pupil wishes he had signed up for Home EC. Editorial By Lloyd Walker If there Is no law that restricts the adoption of subject matter from someone else, permit me to extend my hearty thanks to Mr. J. W. Van Kirk. a world traveler, who recently addressed the Malrern high school assembly on the subject, "World Peace." Mr. Van Kirk conirratnlated this generation for Its educational advantages and it Is my true opinion we are to be congratulated for It Is true that we are undoubtedly better equipped than any preceding generation. It Is also my honest opinion that too little stress Is placed on the necessity of education. The people of this world, as a whole, seem to be too "speed craz«d" to weigh the importance of education. We will find from observation that regularly different ones of our class mate groups suddenly get the idea of quitting the courses our public school offers for some outside "course," less advantageous. It Is not only my idea that we need the education offered but I want to make It your Idea as well. The time has passed when "existence" is fought for with muscular strength as a weapon. It Is fast becoming "survival of the fittest," with the "fittest" pertaining to intelligence. It is a known fact that the world's population is becoming weaker but more intelligent. Due to this fact alone this known intelligence should be used to gain more intelligence. So I say grasp that which Is before you now and not wait until it Is too late to wish you had done so. T WITH THE DIM WITS By Malcolm Jnelke High School Topics Miss Walker says the German Marks may be very low but they can't be much lower than ours. Alan Du Val likes English Lit. He says Bacon is his meat. Jim Beckwlth returns from a duck hunting trip but declines to tell how many ducks he bagged. We .figure be either shot. more then the'limit or none at, all. We think the speaker who risked us Wednesday morning showed rare judgment in select- Ing our Adonis, Lewis Storey, to hold his world flag. Is it true that the "Conner- Hall-Anderson" triangle has broken up and resloved Itself into the "Conner-Hall Alliance?" Do Hastings girls always descend stairs that way? Babylon Brooks. MODERN VERSION OF QUOTATIONS TAKEN FROM SHAKESPEARE'S "AS YOU LIKE IT" Hy Klliel DuvJs | Shakespeare: Shepherds, go off a little. Modernized: Scram you eggs. Shake,: Dear master, I can go no further. Oh, I die for food! Here, He down, and measure out my grave. Farewell, kind master. Mod,: I can't make it boss. I feel like u can looks after it's been crushed by atmospheric pressure. K I don't get around some food pronto you might as well stir up six foot of mother earth and I'll cash In my checks. Shake.: Nay, I shall ne'er be ware of mine own wit till I break my shins against it. Mod,: You telling me I'm witty? Huh! I knew that long ago." Shake.: My singing will make you melancholy Monsieur. Mod,; Grab your laundry thugs, Bill's going to warble a note. WMtMMM flt JMMt ttWtili IsWnhnns ui j m< flj wpu« m m& 'P**l'v w»^4''HJW w*^*i^9!WQ*r Letter System i* Used In Grading Student* Handed, ffcfcit Mfc* port Card* Wednesday Nooft Why could certain high school pupils be seen standing alone in secluded corners of the assembly Wednesday noon? No doubt they were glancing over their report cards hoping to get them tucked away In the envelope before any of their classmates should come creeping up behind to "take it all In." Grades ate supposed to show us our relative position. The letter system Is used in grading as It has been found to be more practical than the numerical system. Many schools have been gradually changing over to the letter system and have found it a fairer method of grading as most subjects cannot be graded to the etact point. The following system of grading has been adopted in the Malvern school this year: A — 95 to 100. B —88 to 94. C — 81 to 87. D—75 to 80. E — Condition or incomplete. F — Failure. C is considered the average grade of high school students. Seventh Grade In geography the seventh grade are studying Germany/ Most of them find it a very interesting country. In reading they are finishing the stories of "King Arthur and His Knights." They received their report cards Wednesday and most of them were well pleased. They are planning a program in music for Friday. Boners of Bright Junior* Members of the American Literature class have been giving three minute talks. Here are two of the funny things that just slipped out: Gladys Wheeler: "Longfellow wen t down to the shore and watched the sea and the wharves coming In." ' Dorothy Nay lor: "Florence Nightingale took a corpse of nurses to France." Miss Nervig: "That word means deed body; toe word, 700 mean is pronounced Ilk* 'core,'" Dorothy: "But It Is spelled •corps.'" The juniors are studying insects In biology, They attempt to draw funny bugs very seriously and to make A's on bees. Anyway it is a very amusing class. Maybe they are bugs nuts. Name* Pitted on H* 5*Maft«f Roll Fifth Grade The fifth grade Is stressing oral reading this week. Their aim is to present the thought to listeners In a pleasing manner. This week they studied Lindbergh's flight, drew his plane, and traced the route. They have also filled blanks with new words to add to their vocabulary. The class has started a new history book. They outlined the division of the plan of government and are Interested in see* ing bow Washington arranged matters. Thursday Joe Salyers brought a salamander to school in a jar. It was passed around the room for observation. One girl tried to attract Hit attention by making faces at it. In their hygiene test one pupil seemed confused about joints, and teeth. His answer for two types of joints was "baby and permanent ones." Thursday the fifth grade helped Betty Smith celebrate her birthday. Her mother treated the class with candied apples and candy bars. For entertainment they told riddles and sung songs. Fir*t the students on the honor roll for tfte ifst Btt week* wttn no grade belo* B, are as follows: S«»lo*t: BOD WHson, Freda Brenning, lift Clay, lean Davis, Margaret ftdOormteJt, Marie Swe- boda.

"Mote time id concentrated study, especially in the assembly." says Miss Walker, "is necessary for better grades." A word to the wise Should be sufficient. SNOOPY SEZ Annotations of Famous People Celebrated "torch bearers" '— light the pupils on their way. Miss Walker: "People, wilt you please quiet down?" Mr. Hertz: "Now 1 believe we left off yesterday——" Miss Schalkle: (No words; just a boring gaze). Miss Kiddle r "Quiet down right now or make up time after school!" Mr. Davison: "I assume that you get my meaning." Mr. Dyke: "Now this formula, average velocity Is one-half the acceleration when the object comes to a stop." Miss Nervig: "Do you understand that phrase? Explain the meaning." Followers of the "torch bearers." "Dim-Wit" Juelke: "Why steal a car like a thief. Buy it on the installment plan and miss a payment like a gentleman." Jim Beckwlth: "Can't ya take it, mine friend?' Allan Du Val: "Are you laughing at me?" Lloyd Walker:^"111 ^tajse Bis McCord: "What did Cleo* patra say to her Roman boy?" Marjorie Du Val: "Don't look at me in that tone of voice. And last and also least Snoopy set: "That's all."

Margaret Ann Buttmann Enrolls a* A Freshman The freshmen are rejoicing as the much dreaded tests are over for another six weeks. The Latin I class is becoming more like the Romans every day.
