This first quarter saw the local ioys outplay the C.C.C. and keep the iall in their territory four-fifthr- of he time. The grounds were very slip- iery and several holes and low places ivith water in them reminded the boys if Denton's old field at Towers' Park. Along in the latter part of this period loss Smith sent a clo,=e shot from a orncr kick and Webster, a C.C.C. halfback in attempting to kick the wet ball out sent it past his own goalie for Denton's first point. The second quarter was very much ike the first with Dcnton having the dvantagc by out-playing them but ailing to find the uprights. In the third quarter Pyle of the C.C.C. booted a long one from sev- ral yards out that just went inside or Vienna's only score. The local oys knew they must score to win lis hall game but every shot went vide until Kiblcr sent one through or the winning point with only 30 cconds left to play. The lineup: Dcnton Pos.

Following a resolution passed recently by the County Com missioners of Caroline County, donating additional frontage on Market Street, the United States Government has accepted the site offered by Temple Lodge No. 128, where the Masonic Build ing now stands. The Federal Building will be constructed on the building line of the Court House, facing Market street, and the architecture will conform. It will have a second story housing a Federal Court Room and offices for other- Federal agencies and projects The additional story to our Postoffice is practically assured, be cause Congressman Goldsborough has been notified that the Postmaster General and the Treasury Department stand ready to assist in every way toward the passage of legislation requiring all Federal civil and criminal suits originating on the Eastern Shore to be tried at Denton by a jury impanelled from citizens of the nine counties, thus obviating the necessity of a trip to Baltimore to have local cases tried before juries that have no knowledge or sympathetic understanding of conditions existing on the Eastern Shore of Maryland. . Residents of Denton and Caroline County should be particularly grateful that one of the finest Federal Buildings in the entire state is to be erected here and look forward with keen anticipation and pride to an addition to our public buildings that will make it more convenient and much less onerous when necessity requires attendance at Federal Court. The purely selfish view, of course, is that we are trading an eyesore for a "beautiful ?12s!oOO model of architecture in keeping with our present Court House, situated on our public square and adjacent to our county court offices which will greatly help in the transaction of Federal lourt business. The preliminary construction will likely start in a few weeks. ' 3K- I SEEK (WEDGE JOD. PITKIN COUNSELS AMBITIOUS YOUTH "Get yourself a wedge job!" That's he advice Walter B. Pitkin gives oung people eager to get a running tart in life. Lumberjacks use wedges o topple mighty trees, says the psy- hologist and author in the current lotarian Magazine, and youth can so the same device to crack open the oors of opportunity "To get a wedge job, develop an accessory tkill," Pitkin counsels 'oung men and women, explaining hat high competence in n low field is eccssary first of all. "You seek work hat biings you into close contact vith some man at or near the top. 'he work must be humble. But your kill at it must be, as the movie ad- ertisemcnts i:ay supercolossul, if not ositively mastodonic." Many of today's "big shots" started s aides to private sccietaries, then ccame private secretaries, then ex- cutivc secretaries, and so on up, he ays. For that reason mastery of tenography, bookkeeping, or a sim- ar skill gives a young person with biliby and ambition an unparalleled pportunity to learn about company raids and conditions. As he makes imself useful in small jobs, bigger obs will come to him. Law may be a wedge skill, Pitkin nforms impoverished young attorn- ys looking for clicnts.i by studying cw and proposed laws as they affect specific business, an able lawyer may create a job for himself. Facil- .y in writing may enable a young man to make technical reports and cientific abstracts readable to the ublic and thus make himself useful an industry. Door-to-door selling, mechanics, photography, and many nother skill may be used to serve a imilar purpose. "No ukill, well mastered, is too slim · inconsequential to be laughed off, you think hard enough about how use it as a wedge," concludes Pitin. "Use it ingeniously, not to begin t the bottom and work up, but to rack into the 'big stuff' with a very mall tool." ORPHANS' COURT The Orphans' Court for Caroline ounty met in regular session on lonclay, with Judges Towers, Handy nd Dennis present.

Griffeth Methodist Pastor of Deal's Island, Md. He who has seen the proud Amazon pouring out its muddy flood upon the blue waters of the mighty Atlantic will recall how tenaciously the strong river holds on to its personality and refuses to be lost in the immcrr-ity of the sea. But at last the river must yield to the conquering ocean. The turmoil ceases and serenity reigns over the vast expanse of water?. Thus dies the heart of pride before the overcoming master love of God. The man of the world clamors for the free expression of his own personality. He would be himself. But God never manifests Himself through such a man. Before God will reveal Himself through you, you must bring self into an at-one-ment with God. Like Jacob whose selfish personality wrestled all through the night with an unknown man, so the Spirit of God wrestles with the spirit of man. But the comirig of dawn saw a new Jacob--a man who had met God and had been conquered by Him. · When a man's "self" has gone down before the power of Divine Love, even his neighbors notice a new sparkle in his eye, a radiant glow on his face, a brotherly grip in his handshake. The man himself notices a strange absence of those traits of character which yesterday filled his life with wrangling, bitterness and nervous tension. Men who have met God face to face and have fully yielded to Him are the men in whom you can today meet God. 70,000 CHILDREN Seventy thousand children are alive today because back in 1922 a few citizens with courage and vision determined that the dangers of the machine ago, must be met by education. This good news comes from the Center for Safety Education of New York University. With it comes another bit of information that should provoke real thought. In a publication entitled, "A Milestone in Safety Education," the Center says: "Traffic accident statistic; reveal two age levels on which special stress in safety must now be laid. In the period from 1922 to 1037, the death rate for children of school age decreased by 13 per cent, the rate for adult groups increased by an average of 1GO per cent, and for pro-school children increased by 35 per cent. This- indicates that these two age levels--adult and pre-school--are vitally important and will be considered in studies conducted by the Center." What has been accomplished in the school classroom through safety education can and will be repeated in the home, on the streets and highways, in shop and factory, while the good work goes on with increased momentum and scope in our elementary and high schools. Such is the goal of the Center for Safety Education which was established last July under a grant by one of the pioneers in the organized safety movement, the National Conservation Bureau of the Association of Casualty and Surety Eecutivcs. While the scope of the project extends over the whole field of Safety education, the primary purpose is to train teachers to teach safety understandably, practically, thoroughly nnd effectively Shortly the nntion's accident prevention forces will be reinforced hy increasing battalions of men and women who have been tiaincd to teach safe living. Thus America brings into play new and more effective wcaporw against that most ruthless of all public enemies--a killer who strikes at young and old alike, a wastrel who costs us more than $2,000,000,000 annually, a maimer who laughs at human suffering--the preventable accident. FHA Expert Speaks To Rotary Club Each week we will endeavor to bring to the community the essence of the talks which the Rolarians o Denton have the opportunity to en joy, and sincerely hope it will derive some benefit therefrom. Mv. J. Roland Chaffinch having as liis gucvt Mr. C. D. Sergeant, former ly of the Federal Housing Adminis tration, induced him to give a short talk. Mr. Sergeant is working with Mr. Chaffinch in the Denton Nationa Bank trying to popularize the National Housing Act and was very kind in giving us a picture of the workings of the Act. At the beginning of the depression as bank? closed and credit disappeared; homes which already nccdcc repairs were forced to deteriorate still further and current repairs were not made because home owners lackct the cash and the credit to make them New building was at a standstill, and young married people who in normal times would have built their own preferred to live in homes with their parents. The remedy was the National Housing Act of 1934. It makes possible repairs to existing homes, and enables the buying and building of lomcs. It works through bank loan, and has two divisions. First the 'Modernization and Repair," designed to help renovate existing homes. The banks made the loans to ndividuals on a character basis, and the Federal Government insured the total loans up to 20%. That is, the government set aside a reserve amounting to 20% of the total loans of a bank during the year, to take are of all losses up to that amount. An amortization plan was cnvolvcd o enable the borrower; to repay in a reasonable time. This plan took quickly and losses have never exceeded 3%. The first bill expired and vas renewed with a coverage of 10 r ,. The second division is an "Insured Mortgage Program." It is, in effect, in insurance company. The need for t was seen because loans which had ccn made for one to five years, com- ng due during the depression, could not be refinanced by the usual meth- rds. The hanks arc also used, and all oaiu on one property are put in one mortgage. A complaint that by the ild mortgage the borrower did not lave enough time to repay, is ended by giving each up to 20 years in vhich to repay. It is possible to mortgage up to 80% of the property's ,-aIuc, and in unusual cases 90 %. Amortization and repayment is tarted immediately in monthly payments, which include taxes and fire nsurnncc also. Under this plan mil- ions of dollars have been borrowed. iQLDSBOROUGH GETS BIG VOTE ON SHORE In the recent election when a rec- rd vote was cast, Representative T. Alan Goldsborough, First Congres- ional District Representative in jongrois since 1920, was returned or another term.

Warm homes nourishing food, warm clothes, family and friends are »?ome of the blessings that we have. The ability to see and hear the wonders of God's world are ours also. We must remember, when we make our prayer of Thanksgiving to al;o pray for the families in the wartorn nations. We are thankful that our country is still on peaceful terms with the world. Many years ago our Pilgrim fathers found time to" set aside a day to give thanks to God for all that he had done fo r them. May we too, in ii* progressing world take time, not only his one day of the year, but everyday, to give our thanks to onr Heavenly Father.

S. students are eagerly look- ng forward to the Thanksgiving iolidays which come on Thursday ind Friday of this week. Truthfully, 'oiks, students really do enjoy their lolidays. ~~ Literary News The Juniors in English have been studying explanations and have earned how to explain a subject learly and thoroughly. We have :hose'n this one, by Wayne Cawley, as one of the be : t. Some Highlights on Money In this great world of ouns money s only good because of its purchas- ng power in itself. It can buy neither icalth nor happiness. To some peo- )le money is a god; they-worship it and will do anything to obtain it. A reat man once said, "Money L= the root of all evil". But on the other land it would he rather hard to ob- ain the necessities of life without it, s one would have cither to barter or rade for them. Many of the poor be- icvc all the pleasures of life arc be- ond reach if one lacks a surplus of money. It seems that people are eitb- r worrying because of the lack of money or because they're afraid they vill lose it. Therefore money may be a medium through which we obtain lappiness or sorrow. Alumnae News Mr. and Mrs. George Neal were given a shower Friday night, Novem- icr 19, by the groom's parents. A lumber of the couple's friends were irercnt. The young couple received nany nice and useful gifts. After a pleasant evening, delicious refreshments were scryed. As the guests left hey wished the bride and groom much happiness. Mrs. Gedrge Neal is he former Pauline DeFord, who graduated from C. H. S. last June. Senior News Recently the pupils in the second cction of our English class gave heir oral talks. So far they have icon given on a variety of subjects which makes them more interesting, harlcs Butler started us off with a alk on "Argentina." He gave many vorthwhile facts about crops, climate, latural resources and a general de- cription of the country. Hannah Del- viler gave an informative talk on Tea", giving us facts on the grow- ng, fermenting, rolling and heating iroccsscs. "The Life of Madame Curie" was given by Sylvia Secse. lere we learned that Madame Curie ccamc famous as a co-discoverer of adium and met her death by breath- ng and handling it so much. Dorothy loward talked on the marvelous vork of the great nurse, Florence Vightingnle, during the Crimean Var. Miss Nightingale was awarded ruby red enamel cross with a white ackground and a blnck band on vhich were inscribed the words, Blessed arc the merciful." "Uncle Sam's Fortresses" were discussed hy lobert Thawley. He revealed that vht'n the mornle of n nation is de- troyed, the battle is won. Irma Henzen told us many outstanding and aluablc uses of "Dogs," a subject he likes very much. Some uses mcn- ioned were carrying mail, helping he police department and saving ives. Bryant Cawley told us about KWSPAPLRl Cuba. Tnc last talk was given by Su.-ic Trice on the villainous character "John Wilkes Booth." It acems that the students enjoy hearing these talks, but hate to give them. Dots and Dashes From the Juniors Since we've heen writing about our studies from tlie bcgianing of the year we thought the readers would like a little variety. So here we go. Athletics--On Friday, November 18, Wayne Cawley caught a pass from Burnley Wyutt making a tonch down. Some luck Wayne, I bet you couldn't do it again if you had to. Crime--Since his father won the election for sheriff, John Andrew has been appointed special investigator to catch the spit ball bandite, who are then brought before Chief Justice Johnny Hughes, for ecntencc. Small Fry (or maybe a big one)-Last Tuesday Byron Nuttle killed 6 rabbits with only 6 shots. Shall we send this to "Believe it or not?" Flash!H! Society--Deanna Durbin (Anita Wilson Hue) and Judy Garland (Ellen Louise Collison) have just met in the studio to take their weekly study of music. We've heen expecting Sophie Tucker (we can't find one) to arrive here and assist the girls. Scoop--From the most celebrated news reporter in our world (again C. H. S.), Bill White, we've just received the greatest news from Europe. War has been averted and Hitler gets a slice of Czech territory. Come on, White, can't you ever catch up with Pappa Time? Sophomore News In Current Event class on -Monday, several interesting articles were given. Some of the most interesting were facts about government and of the events going on in the other countries. We enjoy these classes very much and hope to continue them. Our Latin class finds many of the pupils 'ettledf down to work very hard. The marks on the report cards couldn't have had anything to do with it, or could they? We have started on the novel, Silas Mamer, in English. I believe we are ;oing to enjoy this novel by George Eliot, very much. Freshman Home EC. News The Freshman Home EC. class ha' just finished its unit on homes. They have found out that it takes more than blueprints and building materials to make a good home. Following is the best composition on this sub- iect; The Difference Between a House and Home A house can he classified as something that cannot stand alone but must have a foundation vhich is called a home. A house is first planned on blueprints and gradually the carpenters make a foundation of wood, hricks, stone, or. something else. Sometimes it takes a long time to make this and it has to be built radunlly. A home is different. Homes arc not planned on blueprints. They arc planned, really, in the minds of the mother, father, and children. The attitude of the parents has a great deal of influence on their children. If the parents arc lovable, unselfish, appreciative, and attentive, the children usually grow up as nice boys and girls, liked by everyone. Anyone can sec that a house is not much good unless it is a home. For without the love and affection of a family, a house would be barren, cold, and useless. --Florence Smith. Seventh Grade News Seventh Grade Arithmetic classes have made graph; showing the numbers of A's, B's, C's, D's and E's on our first term report cards in Arithmetic and history.

As We Hear It On November 17 Mr. Stull's CiYics class took a test. Evidently the pupils were a little confused about certain parte of the government. The Legislature of the U S. is called Bicameral because it's like a camera. The three main branches of government are tbe Preamble, the Legislative and the Judiciary.
