IF IT WERE YOUR CHILD
If it were your child playing on the
curb, ready to dash thoughtlessly into
the street after a rolling ball, you
would consider no sacrifice too great
to save her life. A delaj) of a few sec-

selves settling a substantial sum upon

other story. If by dint of study and

still better, we will have her at home
where we know the way ’round. If she
gets tempermental, we will under-
stand how to quiet her down or cheer
her up, for in our own business we are
playing according to rules we know.
In every business there is opportunity
—if we do not see it or cannot find it
the fault is probably with us.
Frank E. Davis of Gloucester. Mass.,
was a fisherman; sailed on his father's
snip and caught codfish—not a very
sweet-scented business, you may think.
He did not run for congress nor buy a
haberdashery store, he looked for op-
portunity in fish; and now. through a
mail order business, supplies 165,000
families writh sea foods from his own
great packing plants.

when mother and child are safe can

home. But even the father cannot ful-

mother’s heart. No driver in his right
mind would deliberately kill or injure
a child, yet many drive recklessly
'through school zones and residential
districts where children are playing on
the sidewalks. Even those driving at
legal speeds have been involved in ac-
cidents that were legally “unavoid-
able.” But no exoneration in court
can remove the remorse at having
killed a child. Protecting the children
requires greater caution than the law
demands. - Traffic ordinances can only
set a maximum speed; you must de-
termine the safe speed.
Nor can the
law define “inattention,” the principal
cause of accidents. Responsibility
can not be shirked by following mere-

“Opportunity knocks but once.” This
has been drummed into us, beginning
with the second reader, and if reiter-
ation counts we should by this time
believe it, yet the question still
troubles us. Does she? Is she a
knocker at all. After all these years is
there not a chance that this knocking
business Is all wrong?
Do you know, we have serious
doubts about this lady? Opportunity,
slipping up on you from some unsus-
pected quarter and giving a bold lit-
tle knock at your door. No, we don’t
believe she is that kind of a girl at all.
To our way of thinking, Opportunity
is not the bold flapper type, but
rather the kind of a lady who must be
called upon at home. She must be
sought out and courted. A little line
we read somewhere gave us what we
believe to be the best tip. It said:
“Don’t stand with your back to your
work and scan the horizon for oppor-
Now there is a lot of wisdom and
plain horse sense in that thought. Why
should we wait around for a myste-
rious knocking that we can’t be sure
will ever come, or why should we turn
away from our work where we know
how to get the greatest results and look
around just generally for Opportunity
to show up from some unlikely direc-
Then there is another thing: Not
having ever been formally introduced
to the lady, we are always liable to be-
come ’ victims of a case of mistaken
identity. Suppose we pick up some
dame wandering about at large who,
because of her “silver threads among
the gold,” we take to be Opportunity
and closely related to old Hard Cash.
Perhaps we find her in the guise of
an oil property; or that beautiful real
estate sub-division, Bluffdale on the i
Rocks; or, perchance, we may think
we*recognize her in a local automobile
factory “soon to supply the entire mo-
tor transportation of the South,” or in
a clever invention to correct the
bowed legs of cattlemen so that they
can climb oil derricks with grace and

Spanish Club Has Meeting
A Spanish Club was organized last
Monday by Miss Duke, consisting of
the pupils who are taking Spanish this
year and those who took last year.
The club is to meet on Thursday even-
ing twice each month.
The first meeting wTas held Thurs-
day evening at the Chamber of Com-
merce building. The following pro-
gram was given in Spanish:
Club song, “Desperted.”
Roll call and minutes—'secretary.
Song, “Ausencia,”—Alma Bell, Des-
sie Beard. Eunice Custer, Ora Jack-
son and Miss Duke.
Violin solo—Pembroke Touchstone.
Duet, “El Rosairo,” — Marguerite
Burford and Flossie Giles.

thus carrying out the Spanish idea.

Sinton High School Spirit This Year
The school spirit went visiting the
first of this year, but in the last games
of the season every particle of it came
home. During the yell rallies more
real pep has teen shown than we can
account for. In fact, the splendid yel-
ling at the games inspired the team
to five ties and one score of 32 to 0.
The school spirit has been shown this
year at hall games. Yell rallies and
pep meetings and also during called
meetings at assembly.
High School Band
The school band is progressing.
Last Wednesday evening about 9 p. m.
thirteen young musicians assembled
at the ward school house to practice

seemed glad to get started. There
