MUSIC CLASSES GIVE AN OPERETTA (By A ,| ce F ontron).» It Is interesting to note the thnnge there has been In the rhlclten raising In this vicinity. At one time chickens were considered as a sido lino on the farm. The .farmer's wife had her flock and cared for it while her husband did the rest of tho chores. Bettings nf eggs were placed under th» hens and tho flocks Increased only as tho eggs were hatched and a» the young chickens were cared for by the mother hens. Now It Is very different for chicken raining has become a science, nnd much study is being given to tho matter, instead of a wooden shod, which used to be the habitation of the 1 chickens, modern buildings well equipped and well lighted are now tho homes of the fowis. One of the modern chicken houses, which muy bo seen near the vicinity of Hutch Insou, is constructed of hollow tile on a cement floor and foundation It Is about one hundred feet In length ana nearly fourteen feet wide. It Is a well ventilated and well lighted room. Beneath the roof It Is filled with straw, supported by wire netting, which is used to add to the warmth of the building In winter, to keep It cool In summer, and to absorb the moisture. The building Is equipped with modern nests, and the grain containers are ot the self-tilling type. It Is a new Ides In chicken- raising to turn electric light* on la their houses about five o'clock each morning to get the chickens up and to work early. Instead ot letting the chickens forage for themselves with a little additional grain, as was the old method, their food, too, is on a scl- entlfls b»s|s. It now requires seven different Ingredients to form a perfect food for the chickens In ad- Stress Vocational Work In Classes (By Carmen Woodton), Vocational and educational guidance Is being stressed very earnestly in our group programs this year. These are two of the new and very important steps in tho lite of junior high school pupils, and for this purpose a card Is made out for every student at Sherman, to bo filled out and kept at tho office. j These cards when filled out will contain Information about the pupil's likes and dislikes, his disposal of leisure time, favorite magazine, three favorite books, plans about finishing junior nnd senior high Bchool. whn\ he Intends to do when through nebool, whether ha has earned any money and how, and three occupations he Is especially interested In. The purpose of the*o cards Is to have Information at tho office which will enable the sponsors to direct the Sherman students, vocationally nnd educationally, and also to give aid in satisfying their various desires and fulfilling their am- billons. "The Feast of the Red Corn" Presented at Sherman Junior High. (By Bernice Clare Snyder), "The Feast of the Red Corn," an Indian operetta, was given by the music department of Sherman last evening in the new auditorium. Miss Klrkman directed the play and those who saw tho Sherman production. "Cinderella." knew what to expuc.t. The music and costumes were exceedingly effective, 'Tls oorly In the morning on the day of tho "Feast ot tho Red Corn" that the scene opens- in a glen. Each year the maids of the tribe gather In this glen for tho purpose of seolng who gets the red car ot corn and whether her dearest wish will bo granted. This year the queen of tho tribe, Weeda Wnnta, joins tho maidens In hopes that she will get the red ear and see If her king, who many moons before hnd gone to the north in war, iR still alive. But to the dismay of all, the Old Squaw has told the maidens that tho Four Winds this year will not grant the wislf for someono has committed a great offense. Everyone thinks that Impeo Light, the younger Hlster of the queen has committed the offense. But Tmpce Light atones for the offehBe site has committed by saving the queen's three little children, Fud- geo, Pudgee and Wrldgee. Tho queen finds the red ear and the Four Winds grunt tho wish. The cast included: Tho Old Squaw (the sorceress of the tribe) Ruth Hoagland Weeda Wanta (the queen of tho trlbj) Bernice Clare Snyder Impee Light (the queen's younger sister) Lillian Smith Fudgee.

Remember thnt "a friend in need In a friend indeed," and If at anytime one ot your teachers or a member ot a program committee asks you to give a speech, and you do It willingly, you will always be held as one of their best friends. When you stay in after school to make up work, do it willingly, ' Did It ever occur to you that, when you stay to make up work, your teacher has to do extra grading and has to stay Just as long as ou do? Yet you are the one who grouches about It. Whose work Is it anyhow nnd who gets the benefit? Echoes From the Gym Items of Interest at Sherman High Athletic Notes (By Jamea Lewla). In Coach Huston's gym elasses the boys are learning to do hand springs, dives and other acrobatic stunts. These seem rather difficult and almost Impossible to soma of the boys who are not accustomed to them, especially the fellows whose weight put them at a disadvantage. In the third hour class last Thursday some ot the boys declar-l ed that a hand spring was simply out of the question. Coach then made the announcement that no hoy would he excused to go homo to lunch until ho had performed this tumbling act. It was suddenly decided that the thing could be done. This affair ended very happily lor It wag reported that no one missed his lunch. The annual basketball tournament among the various societies is already being discussed. Many of the groups have elected their captains and will begin practice quite soon. Since this is an elimination tournament, tho group that wins the final game will be proclaimed the champions of Sherman tor this ' year. SHERMAN'S SOCIETIES HI-EX (By Lois Phillips).

We don't want to be a nation on wheels, with no place to go. The answer is, build more, and where necessary, wider concrete roads— and start building them now. Not in a long time have general con* ditjons been so favorable for carrying on such public works as permanent highway building. Your highway authorities are ready to carry on their share of this great public work. But they must have your support. Tell them you are ready to invest in more Concrete Highways, now.
