However, one senior has scarcely regained consciousness since he reported on "Paradise Regained." The point is that in spite of the normal resistance offered to such a project, the alleged students have admittedly grasped something of Milton, the power of his themes, the artistry of his verse. The ' f e a t was accomplished by serving the Millonic classics, not by piecemeal but in their entire- tics. The tonic was effective. The idea which we should like to put over is t h a t a taste of a classic is not enough. One has to get the feel of the thing, that is, enter into the spirit of the writer arid his times for only then does the reader begin to "do what 'is facetiously referred to as "developing an appreciation. A more apt term is enjoyment. Such attainment depends upon individual ability and inclination. At any rate the chap who has struggled through the whole of "Paradise Lost" should know something about it and be able to report H to his class much better than the person who has read only an excerpt. - It may be belter lo have tested ·the classics t h a n never to have contacted them, but our opinion is that one's time is better spent in reading wholes, not parts.

SCHOOL SCIENCE CLUB SPONSORS STRUNK SPEECH Luther College Professor of Biology Says Man Has Copied From Nature. The Natural science club of the high school and that of M. C. J. C. under Ihe supervision of Miss Ida E. Iversen presented Dr. W. L. Strunk, professor of biology at Luther College, Decornh, in a double assembly before the high school students and in a special assembly for the college. He was introduced to the high school by Roger Hayes, president of the high school club, and to Jaysees by Derwin Myhr, president. "The'principle of Ihe wheel is the only one which.was originally discovered by man," declared Dr. W. L. Strunk.."The other principles applied by man are all imitated or copied from nature." Didn't Originate It. Dr. Strunk drove home his statement by giving several examples from nature. He said that hitch-hiking "was not introduced by man for the Remora fish has for years had a free ride across the seas by clinging to the sides of other sea animals. To illustrate that animals copy from others, Dr. Strunk told of a domesticated otter who did not like to go into the water. When the others were swimming he would w a l k on the sand along the bank. B u t , when they came out of the water, rolled in the sand, shook themselves arid jumped -in the a i r , he did likewise. Dr. Strunk slated that the Bower birds were the only creatures besides h u m a n s to have an aesthetic sense for they build a perfect bower with colorful anc artistic exactness. Presented Movie. Speaking on the subject "A Marvel of Crcalion, The Bee" before the Jaysess, Dr. Strunl meanwhile presented a four ree movie entitled "The Realm of th( Honey Bee," produced by the department of agriculture. Hi pointed out that the great myster ies of life are ever before us in our study of the honey bee. Prof Strunk commented on Die variou scenes of bee life as they were shown on the screen. Scenes o bees gathering neclar, pollen and water were interesting while phases of the honey industry, anc the castes of bees, drones, workers and queens were presented. Commenting upon the fact thn the queen's attendanls never tun t h e i r backs to the royal mother. Prof. Strunk said, "Our custom of always backing up before royalty probably dates back to this h a b i t of the bee'." Miss Mary Bullock, history instructor, returned to her classes Monday, Jan. 11, after an absence of a week, due to illness. J. U. Crosen substituted for her. Howard Barker's "grunt a n d groaners" have set up quite an enviable-' record this season anc are n o w . h o l d i n g down the top position of the big four. W c 1 someone has to uphold the supremacy of M. C. H. S. in th athletic circle of the big four, ei Judge? Science Sponsor IDA E. WEnSEN Senior Students May Enter Essay Contest Senior students of the Mason City high school have been given opportunity of entering an essay contest on the subject, "What Engineering Has Done for My Community." Prizes have been offered for Ihe bcsl essay: A first prize of S20; second prize of $10, and 12 prizes of ?5 each. In addition, the winners of each county will receive a medal. The contest is sponsored by the Iowa Engineering society. The papers arc to be from 700 "to 1,000 words in length, nnd are to be in the hands of designated teachers on or before Feb. 28. The three best essays from each school are to be sent, to a representative of the society at Ames who will send 'the (hrce best from his group to a central commitee Awards will be made and announced as early as possible. Sport Squibs Hey you! Those fast little fcl- iows are going to scrap those big lellows , again! Once again t h e Trojans' will pit their "fire-wagon" speed against the height of a col- ege freshmen outfit. This time ihey will scrap with the Drake Bull Pups in what promises to be one ot the fastest contests of the season at the local gym Saturday, Jan. 23. Three local high school boys lave entered the "squared circle" racket and have appeared in a number of the American Legion Boxing shows this winter. Bob Kipper, Maynard Michaclson anci Rtiss (Freddy Miller) Enrighl nr* Ihe boy's who have taken up this jrulish art of pugilism. Mike Martin, former Mohawk star "gnmt and groaner," has also entered the boxing game and thus far has not been defealect. Well, here's more power to you, fellows! Holding a rabbit's foot in one h a n d and a good luck omen in the other I'm putting my money on the Mohawks as they travel to Davenport Jan. 22 to avenge theit earlier season defeat at the hands of tlie river city team. "Round and iround she goes and where she stops no one knows," would well fit the Mohawk basketball team as it shoots the bal toward the basket, never knowing where it will end up but in al probability it will stop outside o the rim ot the bucket unless ok lady luck by some ^chance steps in and changes its course for an occasional swishcr. Parrish Places in Editorial Contes Koberl H. Parris, senior placed third and fifth respectively in copy reading and editorial w r i t i n g in the first group contest of the school year conducted by Quill and Scroll, i n t e r n a t i o n a l society for high school journalists. Don Smith junior, merited honorable mention in tlie current events contest. Don defeated all local j u n i o r and senior j o u r n a l - ists.'s pals in Cub lab are having t h e i r fun t w i t t i n g him on his strong language uttered when he was struggling w i t h the copy reading. Parrish's comeback wns "Guess I'll make it stronger yet if I have to battle with another chaolic mess and then I'll be a medal winner." Speaking ot wrestling, I wonder why Fort Dodge sports writer, have branded . Tom Rumeliole "Mason City's carnival rousta bout? Maybe one of the gypsum city's sports writers attended th carnival held here last summc and saw Tom talking lo some c the show's "tough guys," an thought he was just one of th gang. Tom with all bis bon crushing tactics reminds me ot th following f u n n y b o n e tickler. Barber: "Was your lie red whc you came in here'!" Customer: No it wasn't. Barber: "Gosh! I must have cv your throat." J. A. FRIDAY, JAN, 22 S REGISTRATION DAY FOR JAYSEE )f(ice Will Be Open From !0 a. m. to 4 p. m. for Students. Dean S. L.
