The followhiR is nn itecount of the trip as told by Mftreftl'Ct. KMcr: Our first visit WOH to the Carey salt mine. We wandered as we liked us there wan no one to show us around. Tho power was shut down so wo couldn't go down into the mine> but we made up for it by going as high as we could. We climbed to the very top, some boys climbing to tho very Iron, frame •work which holds tho Hag pole. We saw everything that was to be seen there and then we went to the box hoard and egg case filler plant. We entered the rear or the box botu '4 building as that Is where the process Is begun. We nfl decided i not to chew paper any more after! wo had seen how It was made. We) saw many tubs of old papers ground up and mixed with water. Entering nn ndjolnlng room we felt a draft of hot air come to meet its. llefore us wo saw many steam rollers which wore covered with blankets on which the mixture of paper'was spread. The farther wo went to tho front ot tho building, the dryer and whiter the paper was. At the end of all those rollers, tho paper came out and was made Into large rolls. The next room was full ot those and many large piles of atlas board. The ogg-case filler plant was an Interesting place to visit. Wo found how the boxes and tillers were Blade. It Is remarkablo bow much of the work Is dona by machinery. Only six women and seven men are needed in the whole plant. Our next atop was at liarabee's Mill. None of us had. ever been to a mill before, so it was a novel experience for us. We were first conducted to the laboratory whore we learned what kind of chemicals were used. On entering the main part of thS mtll^ we Baw many box shaped grinders and purifiers. We we shown the different grades of flour and which gTade was used for breakfast foods. We saw their beating system and different kinds of gases used in tho process. Other places ot like interest are to be visited in the near future ing match this week—and the Roosevelts are ninth. The results follow In the order of their rank. The points show tho number of points . that each society now holds for this contest: Excelsiors 60; Llbertonlans 50.5; Victorians, 39; Everready 31.5; .Tarrotoninns 28.5; Live Wire 24; D. and 11. 20; Roosevelt 10.5.

The rosults are as following: Llvewire 1. Excelsiors 6. Phllos 3, Vlctorlon 6. Roosevelt 7, 1.1. & R. 13. It Is believed by many that the game between tho Roosevelts and the D. & R. was the best.

T. N. T Louis Balnter The Junior News has at last found a homo! While some of the furniture Is at present temporary, and not ns beautiful as an artist's dream, still It. Is useful. L. C. Wikotf, of the manual training department has promised his boys yfltt help to build a real copy dOBk ' after Christmas. Robert. Carder at:d Donald CIUI land have already proved their ability ai »carpenter» hy building some of tho furnituro tho office now boasts. Most ot it came as donations from Mrs. .lack Campbell, Pearl Shiveley, the cellar, the attic and the regions under tho stage. It Is hoped that too close a search for missing articles will in the building not be instituted, ns it is feared that tho eagerness of, the staff to furnish Its working quarters may have led to the Infringement of the laws of thine and mine. One thing Is certain. If some of those good students who leave their dictionaries about under their lockers aron't careful "Dicky" is apt to bo among the missing. When tho need for a dictionary is as great as the staff 's, temptation may be too strong. Mary Noyes has been added to the staff as a reporter, and Marie Henney as one ot the two associato editors which were yot to be chosen. The latter choice came as the result ot the decision to select tor the other editors the two which had the'best copy last week. There is one more editor to be selected. This wook '3 copy will show who he Is. the party has not been decided upon, hut II. will bo In tho near future. There will ho one largo club to begin with, with Misses Connh May Ellis, Irma Nevlns and Ellis May Deter acting as advisors. Further announcements will be made soon.

Christine Weesner, Nancy Jane Winchester, Ruby Alford, Grace 1-add, Virginia Brown, Mae Cones, Isabella Moore, Mary Noyes, Helen, Hamilton, Carol Yowell and Mildred McReynolda.

The new ordinance providing tor special memory work had,been In effect but two days, but Virginia already knows forty Uaea ot "Columbus."- By Donald Gllllland. This week Is National Education- Weak. It Is being observed all over the United States, according to the plans of the Nstlonal Educational Association and the American Legion. The Legion's aim is that by 1930 there shall be In the United States no illiterates. Plans for tho week were formulated by Liberty teachers. The programs for the week aro as follows at Liberty high: Miss Freeburg's English and Latin classes will emphasise most worthy use of Leisure. Tho English classoB will review bards, minstrels and Jesters. Records with songs of the "Lady of the Lake will be played on that day. Tho Latin classes will have special reports on Roman plays, games gladiatorial contests, and Roman authors. Ethical character, vocations ana worthy home membership will be especially emphasized in L. C. Wlcotf's manual training classes. The projects will be planned tor a definite use tn the home. The individual differences will be roc- ognlzed on account of a somewhat limited choice ot projects. The chief element Telatlng to Vocations will be hand training. This will be brought about by teaching tho proper methods of sawing, chiseling, planing, soldering, and use ot various hand tools commonly used in the trades. Ethical development will bo emphasized by observations of the rulos fostering accuracy, noatness, beauty cleanliness. This will be brought about directly by requiring accurate measurements and conventional drawings. "Proper relation of various parts to the whole, honesty in workmanship will be especially emphasized," said L. O, Wicoff, instructor. Grover Kerr, Liberty coach, will stress health day. Ho intends to impress upon tho minds ot his pupils the correct way to sit, stand, | breathe and think, la the mathematics olaitea be will make the problems deal with the comparisons tit proper foods, clothing and recreations with improper food, clothing, and recreations, He will compare the results obtained. The cooking classes will cook a well-balanced meal for a family of five. Healthful clothing will be tne subject ot the sewing classes as well as worthy home membership. The civics and social science on English teachers Intend to emphasize all the days, having debates, speeches, posters, dramatizations, etc. Have you seen any of the teachers scratching their heads, look perplexed and heaveing great sighs? The odds are that they were mathemattc teachers trying to see how health or moat worthy use oi leisure fits into the addition ot polynomials, or ot profits ana loss. Each teacher bas his own perplexities. Latin teachers have trouble in seeing the connection between wdrthy home membership and Latin declesnions; gym teachers declare that anyone who can see. anything in physical training about the tour fundamental processes deserves a gold medal. Science teachers say that the only connecting link between health and the mechanism ot an automobile is what? English teachers have a little easier time of it because dramatization, oral English, written composition are more adaptable. It Is rather puzzling to know Just what connection punctuation and health, or spelling and ethical character can have with each other. Nevertheless Liberty teachers have adopted a "Never say die attitude, and have done the seemingly impossible in some instances. Several teachers have expressed tho Idea that they are sure that students will not fall to respond with their best efforts, since it la for tho honor ot the school. ~ --^ k ' -" __ijSii- ^jj^nk's^fashion (enter Su Tomorrow burban Day 210 Dresses S ALES display samples.
