Peacock School News
By MYRA SAMFORD
Motion pictures like those shown
in regular news reels were taken of
the school children, bus drivers and
faculty of all school in the Peacock
system on Tuesday and Wednesday
of last week. These pictures represent
every phase of school life, for in ad-
dition to the regular class pictures
shots were made of the students as
they played on the school grounds
and as they went t0 the busses when
school was dismissed.
Mr. Appleton is using the machine
that Mr. Rogers, superintendent of
the Girard school, loaned our school.
Peacock is planning to buy a ma-
chine of this type next year. "If
this plan is carried out, this school
will be able to show not only regular
pictures, but it will also present
scenes of all Important school activi-
ties," Mr. Cook said.
These pictures will be shown at
the next show if they are returned
from the developer in time.

Como. He received his high school
education in two schools, Sulphur
Springs and Como. At the age of
seventeen he graduated from Como
liigh school as veledictorian of his
class of twenty. He was captain of
the high school basket bull team,
vice-president of the senior class, a
school debater and the class poet.
In 1924 he entered the North Tex
as State Teachers College, where it
was necessary for him to do sub-
college work because of his having
graduated from an unaffiliated high
school. During his first two years of
college work, he was listed as one of
the ten students having highest grad-
es in a student body of 3,500. He
played in the college orchestra. He
was a members of the Regan Literary
Society and several of his articles
were published in the college literary
magazine. He also played football
for tw0 years. He worked his way
through college and in 1932 he re-
ceived his B. A. degree with honors.
In 1928 he taught in Girard. He
was re-elected, but moved to the Pea-
cock community in 1929, where he
has been teaching since that date. As
the girls' basket ball coach last seas-
on he trained one of the best teams in
the history of our school.
Students in PHS have learned that
their science teacher is a versatile
person. In addition to his being quali-
fied to teach science and industrial
work, he is also a good mechanic and
an experienied carpenter. As everyone
knows he has built many houses in
this county and in other parts of the
His hobby is music and radio. He
plays several instruments—accordion,
violin, mandolin, guitar, piano and
harmonica—-and enjoys tinkering with
radios by the hour. He prefera classi
cal music but he likes such popular
pieces as "Kitten on the Keys" "Doll
Dance" and "Shine on Harvest Moon."
Mr. Appleton and O a Carlile were
married in Aspermont in 1931. "The
twins", a boy, Joel Timothy, and a
girl, Jennie Louj, were born on Dec.
ember 18, 1935. Mr. Appleton's ambi-
tion is that each onee will love music
and grow up to be (what he has a'~
ways wanted to be) an electrical en-
gineer, a doctor, or a teacher of
science in some college.

Red Coral Always Prized
It is red coral that is anu always
has been prized, not solely for jew-
elry and buttons, but as a charm to
bring safety, health and secrets not
revealed to the ordinary person. As
ancient Gauls rushed headlong in-
to battle, they trusted their safety to
their swords, strength and the
"magic" coral imbedded in their
shields or helmets. Many Italians
and Indians regard cot'al as protec-
tion against the "evil eye." The
world's red coral comes from the
reefs off the Mediterranean coast of
Africa, says the Washington Post,
and is obtained chiefly by Italians.
An Englishman and an American
were arguing about queer dialects.
"Why," said the former, you use
the queerest expressions I ever heard.
The other afternoon I accosted a Ne-
gro and asked him if hp thought it
would rain, and do you know what he
said? He said, "Little dogs it will and
little dogs it won't."
The American was puzzled, and
the next afternoon met the Negro
with whom the Englishman had con-
versed. The Negro scratched his
wooly head and said.
"That ain't what Ah said. Ah just
tol' the man that p'ups it would rain
and p'ups it wouldn't."
Watches Once Small Clocks
Watches originally were small
clocks and were worn hung from
the girdle because they were too
large for the pocket.
