There will be a vacant seat In the j u n l n r class when Curr; "Tex" Newport leaves for Tcxn when this semester's finals an over. It will mean n great loss, no (inly to Ihc sludent body, but ti the basketball (cam, ns he is oni · of tlig leading players on the "A' team. John Curler, freshmnn, suffered .a'broken wrlsl recently while playing with a friend. He Is 'recovering quickly.

One would not hellovc that It is the "aflitie usually "very noisy" building. And, to add to the quietness, the bells arc not ringing at the accustomed hoar. A trip to study hall would prove that most of Ihe students can .; ttudy without the tludy hall keeper, nagging and just ready to bang someone on the "unmentionable," ·ijnoroly trying to get them io open a-book and at least "pretend" they arc studying. Gooilnefis, how a stranger would Wilder If he should walk Into any of the classes, and more ' stranecly "an English class." and ..find the students doing pure, 1 ··Ray'(pure) down to earth study- :· |,,g| Surely, there Is an explanation Jo.' all this. Ohl Now I remember. H is getting near January 28 and 29, nnd my memory now reminds , jno that this is the time for "finals," and time to settle down and think over those things which we have crowded Into our overly crammed brain!

Oral · reports on the lives of other American composers, poets, nnd authors were also given during the class period. Traveler's Tracks Thorc was some excitement In ilic clues Tuesday morning when Mill Fly mi, one of the biology % Ktu- dcnls brought ;m o'possuin into the room. Everyone seemed happy witli the .situation except the o'- possum. When Bill picked him up to Icnvc the room, he received n vicious bite on the finger by the c;mnll "Innocent" looking creature. Bill prohnbly won't be bringing Another o'posKum t o ' clnss for a long tiriicl Cnr! Majors must be dreaming at f n r distant Innds lately, for Imlcftd of answering "here" when the bookkeeping'teacher calls the roll, he replies dreamily "there!" Leave it to Billy I^arr to be o: greatest , assistance whenever h is needed. In English class, Hie sun was shining in the eyes o several pupil. 1 ; been use n window shade had rolled to the top of window and refused to be pullcc down. Billy decided lo remedy the case by climbing to the top of the lowest window sill, and pulling th shade down. He was quite successful until, coming 1 down, he made a misstep and the result wa.- broken window pane and a slashcc window shade. We know you wcrt only irying .to be helpful tho Billy, so we'll forgive you .this lime. If You Ask M e . . . Hob Miner must think his Eng- Ish scat must be a new bed.

In physics class Mr. Davenport lold about a couple that were divorced.. He WOK 1)0 and she in her 80's. The reason given was that he put nntl-frccze In her bathtub. After Mr. Davenport questioned why the old codger did It, John Arlcrliurn piped up, "Maybe he wanted to make. Auntie freeze!' Committee Will Give Nurte Recruitment The Doctors' Wives Auxiliary of the Washington County Medical Association will present a program on '.'Nurse Recruitment" to the slrls of -University High School on Thursday, January 31, at eight "'clock. The speakers arc Mrs. Ernestine Blatter, K. N., registrar of Arkansas Baptist Hospital, Little Rock; Sstellc Reeves, director of Nursing Service nnd Education, Sparks Memorial Hospital, Fort Smith; nnd Mrs. Barbara Fcgan, R. N., education director, St. Edward's Mercy Hospital, Fort Smith. Mrs. Spencer Brown Is chnlr- nnn of the committee that will resent the program. The speakers I'lll discuss the fact that shorter lours and belter pay hnvc made lursjng a more worthwhile career, nnd they expect, by presenting details of training, to istcrcsl high 1 to choose iursing as a chool arccr. U. 11. S. has a few new boys. "Let not your heart be troubled; ye believe In God, believe also ..." And thus the English teacher reads the dally Bible reading. Then, closing the Bible, she returns It to Its place, and the reading is soon forgotten. A great many truths lie In those few passages of scripture rend from day lo clay, but they go unheeded and the class goes on with the 'more "important" assignments o flhc day, never slopping to think that there might be something gleaned from the passages just rend. The dally Bible reading should nnt be considered just one of the up dally procedures that make the English hour. It should be specialized and emphasized, not only because of Us contents, but also because of its beautiful phrasing. Questions and comments, perhaps a short discussion after the Bible reading would help bring Its value Into light. Unless the reading of the scripture is accompanied by li ought and understanding, the Bible might ns well be hidden in- the darkest corner of n desk drawer and forgotten nllo- gelher, C l i f f i c McCurlcy Chorus To Give Minstrel Show, Radio Program The Junto Traveler is taklir up ipace in (he Ntrthwett Ar- kanui T I M E S arai*.
