What a great hardship the deafness was to Mrs. Tarpey. The sympathetic nature of Maude, the bookkeeper; the wrath of Slovsky when he found out that his orchids had been given away, all these and other touching bits helped make the plays a success. The returns netted over one hundred dollars, which will be used for some form of student ac- tivities during the coming year. A vote of thanks is due to all the friends who so kindly lent us the hail and the stage properties. Wednesday morning the High School bathing beauties graced the water by the Tuna Club for a dip dur- ing gym period. The short time al- lowed was filled with stunts, such as under-water swimming, standing on hands, playing rock-a-by, leap-frog and many other such amusing feats. The girls appreciate the generosity of the physical Ed. teacher, Miss Hahn, in making these morning swims possible. BIG MEETING Monday morning a senior confer- ence was called by Mr. Dunkle. Both members were present. Florence with the usual smile, and Tom dignified as ever. Every subject imaginable was dis- cussed--graduation dresses--pardon, I mean dress, class pins, advisability of a small annual, subject of ditch day, semor ball, banquet and many other my renumeration, how- - wmglaty problems such as seniors have without envy, complaint to mscuss. never forgetting One chmculty after another arose as is a leader in the HOW TO BACH By a Professional Bachelor Theodore Sierks When one's folks leave, the bache- lor-to-be should outwardly express great sorrow and grief, but inwardly he cannot help feeling that at last he is free to do as he likes. However, he should take great care not to go to the extreme, and show so much emotion that the parents feel they cannot leave their darling boy. After the adieu is said, the bachelor may go to play ball with the boys, fish, hike, swim, or anything that he cares to do. Most parents have their sons eat their noon and eyening meals at a restaurant, and cook their breakfasi~ at home. If this is so, then after sup- per the boy may loaf around.with the "gang" until he feels like going home. The first night or two this is not usually before 11 or 12 o'clock. I gen- erally sleep in a different bed every night. After about four nights I toss the blankets back from under the beds and start over again. For breakfast, I usually fry a couple of eggs together with a piece of bacon, and then I have some shredded wheat or corn flakes. Afterwards I "sling" the dishes into a corner on the sink and dash off to toil thru another day at school. The worst and saddest part of bach- ing is the final and hurried cleaning up before one's folks arrive home again. The three-foot pile of dishes, pans and silverware, unmade beds, scattered clothes, six-inch layer of dust --are enough to discourage any mere man. It is pitful, indeed; but it must be done. One recommended way of washing about 999 .dishes is to put them in an old barrel or box and turn the hose on them. Let it run for about a half- hour. Then set them in the sun to dry. Another way I've heard of, but never tried, because I have no pets, is to set the dishes on the back porch and encourage 3'our cat or dog to lick them clean.
