DOG'S LUCK Three of our Freshinen, William, Harland, and Charles, began their cel- ebration by taking a camping trip---a real one. The first two days were splendid. Nothing to bar a camper's joy! The third day, which is always a charm, changed the outlook. Then had luck fell over the camp. During the morning the three had surrounded a squirrel. He was corn- ered! A stirring episode was at hand. For some moments the boys stood in silence, glowering upon their prey. Then Charles, the most experienced of the lot, swiftly tied a handkerchief about his hand and snatched the fiery creature by the tail. Alas! the hand- kerchief did not protect one finger. Harland came to a timely rescue. They hastened Charles back to camp to prevent fatal results. The squirrel? It was left lying unconscious on the sands. Not daunted, the bravos went ex- ploring on the following day. While examining the ruins of an old house, Willie stepped on a rusty nail. Such a mishap again sped them to camp. The rest of the day was devoted to recuperation. At dawn, rain startled the campers. Neither by pitching tent nor by seek- ing shelter in an old shed could they protect themselves from the drops. A cold, damp day was quite enough to completely dishearten the campers After their eventful five days of camp life they hiked homeward to complete their vacation. Jim Dandy SHORT LETTER FROM SANTA My Dearest Children : Your letters have been received, and I will exert my powers to the Utmost to bring each of you all the things that you asked me for. John, the little boat is under con- struction, and I will tell you now that if propelled by your hand or pulled by a string it will move nicely. You shall have your doll, Betty. I know you will love her with all your heart, for she is very sweet. Esther, I will do my best; but I must confess I do not understand what you mean by a "sweet daddie." Are they good to eat?" I am thinking of each one of you. Yours, Santa Claus. HAVE YOU FORGOTTEN THAT THE STUDENT WHO TURNS IN A COPY OF THE "'SUGAR LOAF" CONTAINING THE LARGEST NUMBER OF MARKED ]~S- TAKES, WINS ONE DOLLAR?

Timely sui~g~tlons for Xmlts Carda I sent this card of greetings, Of love, and Christmas cheer, But please don't store it in the drawer, To send to me next year.---Texas Ranger. School will reopen on Monday after Christmas. TAKING NO CHANCES "You tumble right into bed now. As soon as the sandman comes and takes you away in dreamland, Santa Claus will come to fill your stockings full of nice things. Remember, Santa Claus does not come until you are far away in dreamland." These were mother's last words before tucking her two mis- chief-makers up for the night. No sooner were mother's footsteps out of hearing than: "Bobbie[ Bob- bier" was cautiously whispered from one of the two little beds; "How can folks expect th'eir children to go right to sleep on Christmas Eve ?" Bobbie was too engrossed in his own thoughts just then to bother about an- swering his sister. Just what was in that large bundle under mother's bed was his chief worry.(It felt suspi- ciously like a drum.) "Oh, Bobble!" again ventured Jean; "aren't you crazy to know what is in that package daddy brought home to- night ?" "He said Santa sent it." "But do you think there is a Santa ?" "It's kinda doubtful." "Do you suppose he is listening to US now?" "Naw," muttered Bobble. "Children," came a voice from below, "are you still awake ? Don't you know Santa won't come if you don't go to sleep ?" Lrtter silence prevailed for some mo- irtents. At length: "Bobby, do you really?" "Be still," retorted Bobby. "I'm not gonna be cheated out of what Santa has for me."--Wad. The basket ball court is undergoing a "fix-up." We hope it will be in splendid condition for the game sched- uled between the Junior and Senior Hi boys after the holidays. Harland says he can hardly wait for school to begin again. He is eating lots of fish; too, so his brains will work faster when he goes back." Freshman: "I need five dollars for a dance, and I only have four." Senior: "That's easy. Pawn the four dollars for three and sell the tick- et for two bucks."--Lafayette Lyre. She: "It's very good of you to ask me to this dance." He: "Don't mention it--it's a charity ball."--Jack o' Lantern. Son L~ads Nil Clas~ Blinks--You say your son leads his class at college ? Jinks--Yes; his racer will do eighty miles an hour. FOUND I The train was approaching the little eonntry hamlet of Rebecca, Georgia, and as it slowed up for the stop, the conductor bellowed forth: "Rebecca, Rebecca."
