JUST A LITTLE FOOT TROUBLE Just a little foot trouble may be much more serious than it seems. Feet are the foundation of the body and they carry all its weight. That is a big job fnr a small foundation. Tho feet arc also great shock absorbers. Many of the jolts and jam the human frame would otherwise receive, are absorbed by the feet They need special care because of the important work they have to do. "Look after the foundations" is a good motto, not only for builders, but also for all who deaire health and happiness--who wish to avoid the weary feeling and the weary look. When you think of feet, remember that the Osteopathic Physician thinks and works In terms of foundations. DR. E. F. WITHERS, Osteopathic Physician, Phone 92 226 S. 3rd St., DENTON, MD.

Joe Lee Parker was master of ceremonies. The program was as follows: 1. Bible Reading--Harold Hallman 2. Recitation--"Planting a Tree," George Wilson 3. Essay--"Trees of America," Stewart Wright 4. Musical Selection--"Palms," Geo Wilson playing cornet, Lynne Cheezum, saxophone, and Madaline Cheezum, pianist. 5. Essay--"Preserving our Forests," Aldridge Pepper 6. Musical Selection--"Trees," Girls' Glee Club, accompanied by Orchestra 7. Recitation--"Birds of Killingsworth," Parker Stone 8. Humorous Sketch of "Casey at the Bat," Mason Thawley Most interesting of all was a two- act playlet "Woodman, Sphre that Tree," with Theodore Robinson, Harey Fleetwood and George Goldsborough as the cast. The first act was jerious, carrying out the full meaning of the title; but the second act was a parody of the first, the same cast taking different characters. This clev- ir parody and the parts of the first .cene were written by Mr. Hoffman, who is to be congratulated for putting in one of the best programs of the year. On Thursday, April 14th, Mr. P. F. 'ry, Assistant to the President of Strayer-Bryant Stratton College, of Baltimore, addressed the Seniors of H. S. His vocational talk was lused around the question "What hall I do?" He gave us some fine oints that must be considered before we can thoroughly decide upon our ocation. One point which he brought out was that we should choose the vocation in which we have talent, then arouse and cultivate an interest. One can arouse an interest by starting and doing his best in that in which he has ability. He compared the employees, to whom business men gave trials, today, with those in former years. All these points helped the P. 0. D. clnss to answer their main problem, which is "After High School What?" We all would greatly appreciate anyone who could give us any other points concerning this. Principals' Conference The annual Principals' Conference met last week at Washington College. Those present were the Superintendents and Principals of Cecil, Queen Anne's, Talbot, Kent and Caroline counties. State High School Supervisor E. C. Fontaine was chairman and Principal W. K. Cumming, of Caroline High, led one of the discussions. A delicious lunch was served by the College Cafeteria. First Annual "May Day" Track and Field Meet The first annual "May Day" Track and Field Meet will be held by Caroline High School, May 2. The entire program will be similar to that of County Athletic Day, which will be held Thursday, May 19th. The purpose of the "May Day" Meet will be to arouse School Spirit and pick the entrants for the County Meet. Denton vs. Greensboro On Friday, the fifteenth, C. H. S. boys met Greensboro on the Denton grounds. The two teams were rather evenly matched but due either to carelessness or the lack of effort on Denton's siift they were badly beaten by the score of 14-1. The Greensboro boys had an excellent pitcher and infield. Denton's only run was scored by Satterfield, their pitcher. C. H. S.'s next scheduled game is with Federalsburg on Friday, the 22nd. This will close the season and C. H. S. wants victory. The line-up: Greensboro Jarrell, 2B Cole, S3 Kibler, RF Butler, RF Wyatt, P Doty, P Smith, CF Lima, C Meredith, 3B Dickerson, LF Murphy, IB Denton Dawson, SS Pollard, CF Middleton, LF C. Fleetwood, IB Irwin, 3B Galloway, 2B Andrews, 2B Trice, RF Horsey, C Satterfield, P Score by innings: Greensboro 0 2 0 2 3 1 0 2 4--14 Denton 0 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 0 -- 1 Denton Girls Bow to Greensboro On Friday, April 15, an interesting yet disappointing volley game was played on our home ground--interesting, because of the fine spirit displayed by each member of the two teams; disappointing, because our girls lost, with a score of 23 to 5. But don't worry, girls; our time is yet to come. A bad beginning brings a wonderful ending. Let us hope this proves true for us. Trees Planted in Front of School The P. T.
