An evaluation of the Claude
Schools has een underway for
the last two years. Most of this
work has been done by the teach-
cr.j with some help from Board
Members and Patrons. Now has
come the time when a Visiting
Committee of professional people
will come to our school to evaluate
our school program and make com-
mendations and recommendations
on the basis of their findings and
011 basis of the self-evaluation
made by the local teachers.
The evaluation program is simply
a study of our school situation
from the standpoint of what we
have and what we are doing in an
educational way and at same time
looking forward to making iniprov-
ments that are needed and are in-
dicated according to the study.
Local needs of the Community and
possibilities of meeting these needs
are always considered 111 making

Sunday, May 6th, Claude meets
Hedley on the home lot at 3:00
Last year Hedley was League
Champions, beating Washburn here
the last pray-off game.
Claude has only won over Hedley
once in six attempts but they will
be trying their best next Sunday.
! This is one you must see.
The management is making every
possible effort to field a good team
and should be incouraged in tills
clean, entertaining sport.
Last Sunday Claude won over
the hard hitting Clarendon team

hampered defensive play
Botli teams i atted around in the

home runs in this inning. Pitts

that would have be *n a homer if
he could have run fast enough.
Claude had 21 runs on 21 hits

A new experiment is oeing tried
in the school cafeteria—bus chil-

have been enjoying a light lunch
in the cafeteria in the afternoons
after 2:30 o'clock. The supervisor
reports that commodities are used
for the snacks which are usually
made up of an apple and cookies
or peanut butter and honey rolls.
Commodities are the products that
are sent to the cafeteria by the U.
S. Department of Agriculture, and

Tiince all iirst and second graders
who ride the busses eat their noon-
day meal at 11:30, and do not ar-
rive home until 5 o'clock or after,
the afternoon snack is most wel-
come. The snack is free to the
children regardless of whether they
purchase a lunch ticket or not. At
the last meeting of the Mothers
Club, this idea was presented and
the mothers voted to try it for a
few weeks—if the majority of the
snack can be furnished from the
commodities, the cost to the cafe-
teria will be very sma.ll, and merits

KEEPING LOST TIME
One of tlie most precious tilings
God has given man during his
i earthly pilgrimage is time. It is
legal tender which may be spent
in many ways. So long as life re-
mains, each person receives the
same allowance of twenty-four
hours a day—110 more, no less.
When the individual .ximes to
know Christ as Saviour and sub-
mits to Him as Lord, time is one
of the last and most difficult things
to yield. Worldly habits and com-
panions may be faithfully forsaken:
purses may be opened with readi-
ness. Still the Christian may find
himself in the error of desperately
trying to save — even hoard — his
time for his own use.
Physical rest, the pleasure of
visiting with frie«ids, an interesting
book, tlie pressure of work undone
—all these and many other consi-
derations. good and worthwhile in
themselves, may easily become the
excuse for withholding time from
the Lord that we may spend more
on ourselves. From such a practice
can come I he habit of regarding
once-a-week attendance at church
as sufficient, of saving our strength
when we should be at mid-weeK

"Go .... proclaim ihe ood

sion of the Master-teacher to his
chosen disciples. The sum total
of the Founder of the Christian
faith and the Kingdom is included

claimer of this unique message re-
quires an embodiment of the gospel.
The iron in the fire and the fire in
the iron. The messenger proclaims
himself. He reveals the new way of
life by the attitude of his own soul.
If he possesses the good news he
beholds the good news. His listen-
ers are the mirror by which his
own inner life is reflected. In the
depths of the lives of others he
finds a similarity of what lias tak-
en hold of his own being, the di-
vine revelation in the heart of the
trusted good news. The proclaimed
is sure of the new life and "cannot
but tell what he has seen and
heard." The believer is the per-
sonalized good news. He tells him-
self No disciple is faithful to his
own being who yields to negative
thinking or speaking. The gospel
is a positive fact by a positive atti-
tude. The Christ commissioned his
disciples to a positive life. As Jesus
looked from the tree and saw the
crowd in the act of crucifying him
he saw underneath their hate, con-
fusion and frustration the very
elements that made Him a willing
