Junior Class Will Give Two One-Act Plays Soon The Juniors had a class meet- Ing Just crammed with Important business. After much parliamentary action, etc., (etc. was probably a bit of argument) they decided to give two one-act plays as they are the newest and cleverest productions according to the present trend. A committee to decide on the plays to be produced is composed of Dudley Conner, Lee Cary, Stewart Hall', Phyllis Wilson, Dorothy Oalllher, and Cfiarlotte Wederqulst.

Here it is: "Show me the manner in which a nation of community cares for its dead, and I will measure with mathematical exactness the tender sympathies of its people, their respect for the laws of their land, and their loyalty to high ideals." Under that test, America should stand high. I do not believe there is any other nation in the world which accords its dead a deeper respect.
