FIFTH GRADERS BECOME POETS Last week the fifth graders wrote some very good poems. Two of the best ones were "The Gypsy Caravan", by Eveleth Killgore, and "I Will 'Work" by Loretta Guttierrez.The first is as follows: The Gypsy Caravan The gypsies they dance, And they like to sing. One evening I heard Their t~unbot~ in .~ -:,~, I heard tripping feet And the rol!ing of wheels, If you saw one, too, You'd know how one feels. Quickly out of the house I ran, To see the gypsy caravan. I* was eqlo"'~'a ,,,d painted With red and blue; The gypsies were dressed in those Colors too. I've seen these sights And now told them to you. The second goes as follows: 1 Will Work ] never had a dollar, I never had a whole dollar To spend all by myself. But wait till I grow up, I will work and work until I'm old, Then I will spend all my money All by myself. A. X. ~. The ninth grade, under Miss Cop- pock has taken up a rather extensive study of the possessions of the United States. Elaborate booklets on Hawaii are being made by some of the stu- dents, while others who have friends on the islands are writing to them for general firsthand information.

EDITORIAL Men used to take measurements in less accurate ways than are taken at the present time. An inch was three grains of barley laid end to end. A foot was just what the name implies, the length of a human foot. We still speak of horses as being so many hands high. A yard was the distance from the nose to the thumb held at arms length. An acre was the ground a yoke of oxen could plow in half a dr.y. However, as business increased the world over, manufacturing efficiency demanded nlore accurate measurenlents for inaccurately measured parts are loose; they wear against each other; generate friction; this all causes them to wear out more readily. This caused much consternation between the pro- ducer and the consumer. So a better means of measuring had to be found. Along through the years little things began to pop up until now one mil- lio',lth of an inch can be measured, and is done constantly. The operating gauges used in most factories are checked by gauges which measure ac- curately to within a fifteen-hundredth of a human hair, or about four-mil- lionths of an inch. These checking gauges are in turn measured by mas- ter gauges which measure within one- half of the gossamer thickness of one- fifteen hundredth of a human hair, or within one millionth of an inch.--Bill Kitgour.
