The students of A. C. H. S. and
patrons enjoyed to the fullest extent
the hour’s entertainment provided
by the Cowgirl band of Hardin-

band gave three numbers of which

Seniors Make Check-up
Last week Mr. Sandlin called each
senior to the office -to check-up on
his credits and his possibilities of
graduation. Since then, we have
been working harder, making the re-
maining eight weeks count. There-
fore the seniors have had no class
meetings or entertainments. We are
really serious about the matter of
Juniors Order New Play
The junior class wishes to explain
some things to you. We have de-
cided to buy a new junior play be-
cause the one we already had was
too long for a high school play.
Mr. Baker, our sponsor, went to
Abilene Saturday to a teacher meet-
ing and asked about some plays. We
are ordering our new play this week.
Introducing the Seniors
Paula Jane Ikard, the charming
daughter of Mr. and Mrs. C. H.
Thuman, is one who began with the
class of ’40 in the first grade. Paula,
for sixteen years, has been the pos-
sessor of beautiful brown hair and
brown eyes. To be successful in
whatever she pursues is Paula’s am-
bition. This most likely will be ful-
filled, too! For pastime, Paula likes
dealing with people -in the church,
in school and in public life. This
helps to make her more likeable to
all of us. Collecting horses is her
hobby and she enoys participating in
all kinds of sports. Next fall, Paula
plans to enter Christian College and
further her study of dramatics and
N. M. Goodwin is the very likeable
son of Mr. C. E. Goodwin. N. M.
has thus far attained the old age of
eighteen. He has brown hair and
blue eyes. His pastimes are almost
countless, he likes eating, keep-
ing company with the girls, dancing,
skating, golf and all kinds of sports.
To master aeronautical mechanics is
his ambition. No wonder his hobby
is building model airplanes. N. M. —r

Christmas Spirit Returns
The English students are getting
in the Christmas Spirit in the mid-
dle of March. Perhaps it’s about two
or three months late, but what is a
small matter of two or three months.
You would have the Christmas spirit
too if you were reading a series of
Christmas sketches from Christmas
Eve to Christmas Dinner written by
Washington Irving. But read them.
The freshmen find that they still
have the power to deligh‘ that they
had one hundred years ago.
Medieval Nations Studied
The history I students are study-
ing the chapter about the Medieval
Nations. We are also studying
about Wililam, the Conqueror, Hen-
ry II, Richard, the Lionhearted and
what each one did. The Great Chart-
er and the English Parliament are
also mentioned in this chanter.
The class has discussed fully the
expansion of England, the Hundred
Year War between England and
France and the expansion of Ger-
many. This is one of the most im-
portant chapters in the entire his-

This week the English III stu-
dents turned from Romanticism to
Realism. Among the poems read
were “War Is Kind,” a poem of irony
by Crane; “If I Can Stop One Heart
from Breaking,” a poem of tender-
ness by Dickinson; and “The Old
Svvimmin’ Hole,” a poem of fond
remembrance by Riley. Also “The
Man with the Hoe,” a poem of pro-
test against social injustice by Ed-
win Markham, was read.
Our three weeks test papers were
returned! Among the English III
student body there was a contrast
of expressions, some sad. others in-
different and still others jubilant.

CurtiT''Wright Aeronautical Inusti-
tute at Glendale, California.
For the past week the science
classes have been studying the sound
producing instruments which we use
for communication and enjoymen*.
One day we studied the principle of
the telegraph and how it is used;
we even tried to decipher messages
sent in Morse code. The telephone
set us to thinking and when we got
to radio, our minds were buzzing.
Our goal in the study of radio is
to build a complete radio receiving
set that will work. This will re-
quire a complete mastery of the sub-
ject and will be something of which
to be very proud.
Civics Students Study Democracy
After having definitely in our
minds what democracy is, the civics
students studied the democratic be-
ginnings of America and carried the
study of democratic ideals up to the
present day. We learned that the
Western movement and the Indus-
trial revolution somewhat changed
our democratic government and its
ideals. The third parties, we learn-
ed. were tendencies to reform.
Tuesday, we engaged in a three
weeks test and most of us came
through with flying colors. These
papers were corrected in class Thurs-
Proportion and proportional line
segments are the new topics follow-
ing the locus in plane geometry.
This chapter is based mainly on the
math course studied last year, al-
gebra. A proportion is an equation
composed of two ratios. It requires
four quantities which are called
terms to form a proportion. The
second and third terms are called
the means and the first and fourth
terms are called the extremes.
Last Wednesday, the students of
chemistry journeyed to Wichita Falls
to see John S. Sloan present the
mysteries of liquid air. The exhi-
bition wasi presented in the Hardin
Junior college auditorium.
Air is liquified at 272 degrees be-
low zero on the centigrade thermo-
meter. Liquid air has very little
moisture in it and intensive heat
may be created with this dry liquid.
These are a very few of the dem-
onstrations given by the scientist,
John S. Sloan.
The students that attended the
lecture and demonstration were Mat-
tie Sutherland, Evelyn Wilson, Bev-
erly Lane, Lavenia Crawford. Eileen
Davis, Roy Patterson and Kenneth
Machine Age Studied
The beginning of the machine age
and agriculture started with violence
on the pant of the farmer. This
was the reaction of the farmer to
the changes brought on by the ma-
chine age. The markets were flood-
ed with farm products and conse-
quently prices were low and the
farmers were in debt. As a result
of this discontent movement, known
as the Granger Movement, was starti
ed to help the farmer. After 1930
this movement began to decline. Nex
came the populist movement and thi
