I know not what number I gave her 'Tis vanished beyond recall 1 know I was flabbergasted That she answered the 'phone at all. It filled me with sheer amazement It thrilled me with fierce delight For when she repeated the number She actually got it right. I glued the 'phone to my ear-drum And my heart beat hard and fast, As I said to myself, "Eureka" I shall get that call at last. I waited, and waited, and waited, Once more I seized the hook Between my thumb and finger And shook and shook and shook. But I vainly listened and listened, The moon had waned and set, And the stars were out, but "Central" Has made no answer yet. She will probably answer sometime But I wonder now and then If only when I'm in heaven Shall I hear that voice again. Tom Daly--"Everyo,,ne should sup- port the school paper. Florence Feltrop---"I don't see why. It has a staff." Assembly For the benefit of those who think they ring bells for assembly let us in- form them that they only ring one bell three times.

Mr. Dunkle (to little son)--"Maybe Katherine will let you look at the fun- ny paper while she studies her alge- bra." Kay hands over the funny paper with a sigh and resumed her studies. (Little son seemed to enjoy the funny paper more than Kay did.) Hermine--"Say, Arthur, how close did you come to the right answer in that last problem ?" Arthur( slowly)--"About two seats." A man nearly choked to death in a restaurant. He was eating horse meat when some one came in and shouted "Whoa." George Minney--"Yes, dad, I'm a big gun at school now. Dad--"Why don't I hear better re- ports then ?" Neal Warwick--"Say, What's good to clean ivory?" Miss Hahn--"Try a shampoo." In Geometry Mr. Dunkle--"What is a polygon?" Doris---"A dead parrot." KID DAY We hope nobody was alarmed Tues- day, when they saw all those little girls with huge bows and dolls tucked under their arms, and the little boys with suckers (Art and Fred), for it was kid day. I wonder if watch-makers work over- time ? GRAMMAR SCHOOL The eighth grade boys of the gram- mar school have organized a basket- ball team, and have challenged the sec- ond team of the High School for a game Wednesday (today). The eighth grade girls have also or- ganized a team (baseball), and have challenged the High School girls to an indoor baseball game Thursday. Mrs. Geo. W. Greene visited the grammar school last week. What does the buffalo on a nickle stand for? Because he hasn't room to sit down, (Sunshine Psychology Service) SAY S: "Nothing in the world is certain ex- cept the intentions of a fish as it grabs the hook and bait. Only, when it i$ struggling for its life, it would be glad for the opportunity to change its pre- vious intention." "Conscience is one of the gyroscopes for human motives." *** "Why should we teach psychology? Well, it would not be necessary if all human beings were truthful and hon- est." *** "You can learn a lot if you study mental telepathy. Yes, you'll learn what is in your own mind!" "No man is satisfied with the size of the fish he caught, is just as truthful as the sentence: 'No man ever retired on the money he spent.'" Catalina will give you the rest of your life.
