Another six weeks period has
lassed and along with the passing
if tills six weeks brings us nearer
vacation times. We have just fin-
ished exams and we have dont
fairly Rood. The actors in the play
■ire working hard to get it done
and put it on. it will be presented
Hie 11th of April at 8:00 p. m. 1952.
Due to the fact that Lugenia Hub
jard and Billy McDowell will not
oe here, Shirley Brown and Ken-
neth Neal have taken their places
in the play.
Everyone is invited to bring a pie
to the play Friday April 11th.
There will be a pie supper imme-
diately following the play.
There seems to be n Harem of
girl friends started at Goodnight
and I think Kenneth Neal is in
the middle of it.
The Juniors and Seniors have be-
rrun a magazine selling contest to
help pay for their Junior-Senior
trip If you want any magazines
see one of the Seniors or Juniors
and you will get a good buy. I
The Juniors have been making
preparations for the Junior and
Lugenia had better watch out
because Snowwhite will be bad: on
the week-end and Prince Bucket-
head will have a lot of explaining
to do. Kenneth gets in more fixes.
In math this week we got ano-
ther ire cream and candy trest.
This time Doris Newberry, Joyce
Dunn, Floy Sutton, and Jimmy
Emith won out over Lugena Hub
bard, Barbara McAnear, Broadus
Spivey, and Jimmy Garland. The
treat is always fun if you win.
Seems 'Lugenia 'Hubbard has a
watch dog following her about
school. How about that Jiinmie Lee?
Uncle Bob, our Scotchman friend
from Washburn, sent us a copy of
his old home-town newspaper In
Scotland. That is, it was his Old
Home Town many, many years a-
go. He probably wanted me to use
some of the jokes, but I doubted
that the Irish readers would ap-
preciate them. Anyway, It seems
that when a loved one dies it is
a custom to print a short poem in
the paper In their memory. I liked
the following and thought some-
one might like it for their scrap
Our memories of you are a keep-
With which we will never part.
God has you In His keeping
But we have you In our heart.

All this instruction on how best
to try to express your wishes In the
presidential nomination carried on
by some of the newspapers seems
to be a few hundred years too
late. And it all goes to prove that
the way is first, too complicated;
second, too impossible and too im-
practical for the average person.
If political experts, and mental
geniuses such as Mr. Izzard have
to study up for a week or two be-
fore they can explain it to us how
on earth can we be expected to
inhale enough to enable us to in-
telligently carry out the procedure.
Anyhow, all this Instruction seems
to boil down to this; unless you
get out and do some groundwork
among your friends, find out who
is on your side and rally them to
the precinct convention your cause
will be lost. In my opinion, this
gets us Just about back to where
we are. In other words, if we do
anything we will have to out-ma-
chine the machine-politicians; be-
rome machine politicians ourselves .
. Why can't the issue be put
squarely before the American peo-
ple and let them choose the man
they want. We get high blood pres-
sure when we read that the com-
munist only put one name on the
ballot in the dominated - countries
and shoot every man that don't
vote for that one . . . We give them
the same one choice and figure
that the automobile will get them
anyway in a few days ... My

For the wrons that needs resis-
For the future in the distance,
For the good that I can do."
Several have expressed their feel-
ing pro and eon on the rain-mak-
ing idea, since we requested you
to last week. One fellow told us
this story about and old negro
preacher who when the congrega-
tion had assembled to pray tor
rain remarked. "What bruddern.
no umbrellas?" On the negative
side, Joe Miller, of box 93, Good-
night sent us the following poem I
that was written some thirty or
forty years ago at about the time
that a gentleman named Post was
trying to make it rain in Texas. 1
think you will agree the poem is u
good one no matter whether you
carry an umbrella or not. It Is
called; "The Lightnin' Age."
What's the world a-comln' to, u
feller'd like to know,
When they're makin' ice to order.
an' mamifacturln' snow?
And now, as if to vex us, another
thing we hear;
They're makin' rain in Texas with-
out a word of prayer.
They just git in an open field,
where all the folks can view
An' fire off a cannon bull an' split
| a cloud in two,
'An' then you hear a thunderln an
the rain comes big and bright
But I Jest can't help a-wonderin'
if that kind o' rain is right.
'Pears like the Lord ain't in it.
when the string a feller Jerks
Kin fire off a cannon at'll bust
Ills water works';
An' it's Just as true as preachln',
an' I'm talkin of it plain-
No crop in this here country'll ever
grow from sich a rain.
Anyway, thanks Joe, and will
| nome more of you readers send us
your opinion on the subject.
