Eighth Grade News The eighth grade girls have recently completed their crocheting projects- and are now starting on skirts, which can be either gathered or flared-. They, are under the direction of Mrs. Jessie Aden. The eighth grade boys are learning how to work with the shop equipment and at present are making wall shelves, etc. Their instructor is Mr. Cuddy. Fifth Grade One of the most interesting lessons last week, covering many of the places recently studied in our geography assignments, was a "sight seeing" trip by way of colored slides showing various points in Canada and the United States. Beginning our tour were pictures of the southeast Nebraska flood which happened about three years ago. Here we saw the results of a cloudburst where the bus was washed off the road into the ravine and completely destroyed. There were only three survivors. The corner of the depot was missing and we saw many wrecked homes. Next we came to Hot Springs, New Mexico, where we saw the big parade celebrating the changing of the city's name to Truth or Consequences. The Elephant Butte and the dam were interesting, also the 'Carrie Tingley hospital for crippled children. Leaving there for Silver City to see the open pit copper mine, one of the largest in the United States, we marveled at the depth of the terraced pit with railroad tracks running on each of the terraces. Across the desert land into Arizona where the mountains reached toward the bluest blue skies and the cacti towered 30 feet high, we saw the woodpecker's nest in a cactus similar to the one we have hanging in our school room. We visited Old Tucson where the picture "Arizona" was filmed, an adobe replica of Tucson in the early days. We enjoyed a picnic in Sabino Canyon, near Tucson, in the middle of January, wearing no coats. We saw the mountains Y_ote for the man who can build a Greater Iowa LEO A. HOEGH For GOVERNOR REPUBLICAN Fair and Honest Government for All As Your Attorney General He Has Met the Test Vote for LEO HOEGH Nov. 2 turn from gray to deep purple depending on 'the sea'son or sunset. We visited the school where Mrs. Aden taught, saw pictures-of a class of 30 youngsters, but not the Yaqui Indians which we wished we could have seen. We saw cactus blossoms so pink or creamy they looked like waxed flowers. We bought grapefruit and oranges from a wayside truck, six dozen for $1.00. We then went to the Petrified Forest in northern Arizona. We traveled on to California where we saw the orange trees loaded with the golden .fruit. We yisited the.zoo at San Francisco,- saw the Golden Gate bridge and .Alcatraz Island where the prison is located, with the high waves of the Pacific ocean beating against the rock walls. We traveled along the Pacific, saw Seal Rocks with its hundreds of seals, into the Redwood forests where we saw the big tree with the car coming through the tunnel cut in its base. The lumbering trucks of Oregon were next, taking immense logs to the mill to be made into plywood and lumber. Our next stop was at Mt. Rushmore in the Black Hills of South Dakota. We saw the shaggy buffalo and at Needles a giant precipice where Paradise Pass had been tunneled. At Wall, S. D., we met Mr. and Mrs. P. -Aden plodding along in a -covered wagon pulled by two burros (a picture later used by them for Christmas greetings). Our next thrill was in Itaska state park in northern Minnesota, seeing the trickling streams join to form the beginning of the mighty Mississippi River. We saw a few of the 10,000 lakes of Minnesota. From here we went to Detroit, Mich., and then headed north to Port Huron where we saw the Big Blue Water Bridge. We stood looking from the United States side across the St. Clair river into Canada. We stopped at the customs station to be checked before going into Canada. We visited the Sunken Garden at Hamilton where we saw an old (Paid Political Advertising inserted by Calhoun County Republican Central Committee, D wight W. Ewing, Chairman.) Hog Raisers...

Tomorrow Night, October 29 8:00 O'CLOCK High School Auditorium Pomeroy sand pit made into a beautiful garden with hundreds of beautiful colored flowers. We saw the large electric clock, 50 feet in diameter with hands about 24 feet, made completely of different colored growing shrubbery, clipped to make the numerals on the face. We traveled for nearly 100 miles on the "electric lighted" Queen Elizabeth's Way, formerly called the King's Highway, on which the lights were all turned off during World War II to conserve electricity. The roaring Niagara Falls was our next thrill. No one wanted to go across the cable car which we saw over the raging river. We crossed over to the U. S. side where we saw the Light & Power Building. In a canal we saw a large freighter barge Professional Directory CHAS. I. TAYLOR, M. D. Office At Residence Hours—9 to 11 a. m., 1 to 5 p. m. Phone 42 Pomeroy, Iowa THEODORE J. SCHLOFF D.O., D.N.B.

Our time was running short and we had to catch the 3:40 school bus in Pomeroy so we hurried to finish our trip, stopping a few minutes to see our own Twin Lakes where the water was quiet and peaceful. We arrived safely at 3:40, recalling clearly a roadside sign: In life as in baseball, It's the number of times you reach home safely that counts. We are very grateful to Mr. and Mrs. John Aden for showing us these beautiful pictures and hope they will return later as we would like to see Carlsbad Caverns, the Alamo and the trees covered with moss.
