Truly cut a big figure In TELEVISION IS EXPLAINED TO H.S.STUDENTS Last week Mdhdny morning the high school enjoyed an Interesting and Instructive talk on television given by a Mr. Bryant, of the Northwestern Bell Telephone company at Iowa Palls, with the aid of B; C. Handier, local telephone manager, Mr. Bryant showed pictures Illustrating the sending and receiving equipment and drawings of the principles involved in the operation of television sets. There are three kinds of television, one-way two-way, and true color television. When one sees an .object. It Is because of the flood of light which reflects from, the object. In television this flood must be changed to an electric current. This Is done by the Photo-electric cells, which are above and at. each side of the speaker. When light strikes one of these, it sets up a flow of electrons through the cells or vacuum tubes and starts a cur- Dancing Dolls Gavotte O Sole Mio Novelette The Avenger March Boys' CJlee Club.

Magnolia Bloom ROOS Bernd livitation of the Bolls from "Chimes of Normandy" Plnnquotte FroHlimcn Lead on Honor Holl— When the honor roll was posted ft the end of the second six weeks period, the freshmen were proud to find that their class had more honor students than the other classes and to find two boys' names starred. 'Students who have won 'honors in the ninth grade are-. Lucile Dole, John Ferguson, Nettle Grubb, Ida Halpin, Elnora Lattimer, Ila Leffert, man, Plckett. *Russel Medin, Violet Nor *Donald Parsons, Valeria rent. The stronger the flood of light the stronger the current. This current is extremely weak, 80 It must be amplified thousands of times at each end of the line. In the receiving end the current is run through a neon light, Illuminating It. In front of the light is a revolving disc which has fifty holes In It, each a little nearer the center, till the last Is one Inch nearer than the firSt. As the disc revolves, the neon light shines through the holes and makes 50 points of light on the screen. The disc revolves so quickly that It mokes 60,000 impressions a second, each point of the same degree of brightness as the one started at the other end, thus forming a picture. The one-way television requires two channels, one for the telephone Itself, one for television. In the .true-color television the photoelectric cells sort the colors into the three basic colors, red, blue, and gi;een, letting- only he blues filter through the "electric eyes" on on side, the greens above, and the reds on the other side, or vice versa. In the receiving end, three separate channels are required, one for each color. In this marvelous way the transmission o£ television is accomplished. — Ila Leffert, Freshman. In the tenth grade class, the following names appeared: James Bishop, Margaret Flene, Theo. Gas kill, Eleanor Keen, Ruby Koepke, Lavonne Larson, Norma Raney, Virginia Schnepf, *Ella Zumach. The nth grade has the names of these students: Ardeen Devine, John Hargreaves, Kenneth Knudson, •Phyllis Parsons, Leona Stewart Margaret Simpson. The twelfth grade students whose names were on the roll were: Alva Benson, *Genevieve Hartshorn, Hazel Neeling, Karl Shumway, John Simpson, Lucille Black. 050 Pieces In One Table- Mr. Burmeister Is completing a fine piece of furniture,, a table with a top consisting of G56 pieces ot bird's-eye maple and black walnut It is octagonal in shape, with the grain going In different directions which produces a pleasing effect of .shading.

Messenger on Hook Piig'c— On the book page of the Des Molnes Sunday Register, Miss Messenger, English instructor, hod following interesting review of the 'Incredible Truth" by Irvin S.

With a setting 9f personal comments, he has presented in a series of unrelated chapters what he himself justifiably calls 'graphic', vivid, and vigorous first-person, present-tense annals of historic events'—actual accounts of actual eye-witnesses, .recorded in letters, diaries, official documents, newspapers, or books. "The events themselves range over the whole nineteen centuries of the Christian era and are of diverse natures. Intimate description of Napoleon's Coronation jostle elbows with vivid excerpts from a contemporary newspaper on the storm of the Bastile. "It might seem as if the author in selecting his material leaned a little too heavily toward the military and merely horrible, did not the eloquent plea of 'Thunder traveling, over-the-mountaln- for justice toward the red man stand as represen' tative of chapters on less violent history. One might wish, too, that h6 had quoted a little more and commented and paraphrased less. >But It would be ungrateful caviling to criticize over-much a book which opens so 1 many peep-holes upon events of significance." Study Helps Classroom Speaking— Recently a high school student wrote the following letter to the editor of the Question-Answer department of the Scholastic magazine; ,"When the teacher calls on me to recite, every thought leaves Poster Prizes are Awarded— Several high school and .eighth grade students made posters to,"ad vertise the senior play, "The Busybody," to be given this 1 week Thurs day and Friday evenings at the Call theater.

If your, oral recitations are poor, while your written work is Very good indeed, your trouble lies In undue self -consciousness. «glnce I know nothing about you personally, I cannot suggest what It is bothers you.. You will have tp figure out for yourself why your tlioug-Jjts go flying when they Should be focused on the recitation.

The usual cause of baxy recitations is hazy thinking. I recommend the tiresome old virtue of concentration as the basis of glib recitations.
