R. 1937 X.N. Forced Vacations-Sad State for Students i! i ! t We often hear some students express the desire that their schoo building.would burn down. How ever, they do not want any seriou calamity, but are just over-anx ious for a brief vacation. Try to visualize the critica plight of the thousands of peopl in the Ohio and Mississippi val ley flood areas. Not only hay the schools been closed, but entir cities have been evacuated. Menta pictures of such Hood victims re fleet unhappiness and misery. Children have not been able eve to think of going to schoo Long forced vacations are calam itous. Children in flood area would a 1,000 times rather be i school than suffer as they are. We who are far removed fror such terrifying tempests shoul ieel most thankful that we ca carry on in a normal state. An have we done our part? Have w contributed to the emergency re lief fund? Think what studen donations may mean to those un fortunate victims! And,' in th hands of that most efficient or ganization, the American Re Cross, we may'be certain that ou contributions will be so distribute as to give happiness and com fort.--S. F. G.
