CONTINUED ON PAGE 2 The Name Of Washington Now do the unfolding years disclose The foundatious on which the young Republic first arose, The great hearts given to form the public trust. The elements that fused in it the noble and the just. The sacrificial years that counted not the cost. Love's labor given lest everything worth while be lost. That lent the selfless life to save the commonweal, And the high patriot purpose to the passing years reveal. And so mid storm and stress the heritage of liberty was won, And to that goal the land was led by Washington, Soldier mad Statesman. first in war and peace. Bequeathing to a great land that which means its sure increase. Honor and justice, and the right to be. Numbered among the nations proud and free; No other land has had a nobler son. Nor worthier to be praised than Washington. So long as men remember then the part He played that finds an echo in the human heart, So long as flies the starry flag against the sun Will live the name and fame of Washington. By W.

The fourth and sixth grades made Washington hats this week in Art Class. The primary folks cut out birds and bird houses. In fifth grade reading, the pupils entered a world of wonder when they studied about stars and planets. What a deluge of questions! How can this be and how can they know that? After having question after question answered they finished by stating quite frankly "I d'ont believe that!" In arithmetic, the sixth grade has finished commission and are working on profit and loss. This to them is more tangible than were fractions to the fifth grade. In expressing his bewilderment in the midst of the fraction puzzle, one filth grade boy acknowledged, "When I think I've got one thing straight, there are two or three more that come aloug and make me forget the first. By now almost everybody in the class thinks he has mastered the complexities of fractions. The fourth grade are still learning long division. Several good oral and written book reports were given on their outside reading by the members of the sixth grade. Since school news is being printed in The Dale News, the pubolication of the "Key", St. Joseph's school paper, will be discontinued for the present. Mr. Loehr visited the school this week and gave each child a free ticket to the basket ball game. Many of the children availed themselves of the opportunity to see the game. They evidently enjoyed it immensely. Mrs. Pearless Maxey, who has been very ill with tonsilitis, is much improved at able time.
