capably led by Mrs. Tullis through
out the music periods of this week.
Dr. C. A. Fulmer gave a very in

Italy is "All for One" and training
for war is begun at the age of 4.

itual; a place to provide meals,
leisures and inspire hope, character,
fair play, cooperation, clean fun, ap
preciation and faith.
At the convocation period Chan

ant Decisions." Mr. Boucher talked
cn how one can spend time, the
value of free time, 4-H club work and

. . i !
department ana a swim at. univer
sity coliseum, the day closed with a
very fine banquet at the Lincoln

the Everett Junior high school boys'
glee club, Harlon Easton's imper
sonations, Irvin Kuklin's tap dancing
and magic by A. A. Ashworth.
Thursday's discussion was "Rural
Heme, a Place to Live." It was
agreed that cooperation is the most
important factor. Dr. A. B. Grahm,
the founder of 4-H club work, spoke
on "As Happy as the Happiest,"
pointing out the beauty, color and
wonders of this swift world. He
urged youth to seize and enjoy to
the full evry opportunity of today.
Dr. Grahm also-told of 4-H work

sxtension work have developed rural
life standards until "the sticks" no
longer exist. Dr. Grahm spoke to
::liib leaders on "Why We Have 4-H

leaders of 4-H clubs in Nebraska.

Alford as toastmaster. Dean W. W.

a banquet given by the Omaha Cham

and songs was enjoyed by all. At 8
o'clock the happy group left Omaha

all departed for their homes with
happy memories and thoughts of
"thank you" to all those who helped
to make it a wonderful time for
NO DROWNING FATALITIES
In the report of the two fatalities
listed for the year, a report that
was given at the recent meeting of
the Cass county Red Cross by Mrs.
Raj- Norris of Weeping Water, it
was particularly noted that these
fatalities occurred in the first aid list
and not in the life saving and swim
ming departments. Of the hundreds
of children and young people that
partook in the swimming and life
saving enjoyment, not one was re
ported drowned or otherwise injured,
a record that should not keep any
one from partaking of this popular
sport this summer. Because of the
excellent care and management that
is taken in this department, it is
hoped that a large number will be
out taking the opportunity of learn
ing to swim as well as taking life

WHAT THE NEIGHBORS SAY
Such neighbors they are, Just
over in the flat;
They watch where I go, and
watch me come back;
They know all that I do, for what
they don't see,
They ask the next neighbor,
what they know about me.
So you ran just rest assured, any
move that you make,
Is seen by your neighbor, and
seen as a mistake;
They are ready to tell you,
what to do and to say.
And give you advice, from
day to day.
Sure they can tell you, how to
win and not lose.
And give good advice, as to
company you choose;
For one thing I ask them, if In
sound of my voice.
Do you really believe that you
made a good choice?
If so, I am thankful, that such
things can be.
But don't listen to neighbors,
don't listen to me;
You must choose for yourself,
friends and your wife;
For nobody living, can live
another one's life.
But there's one thing I find,
while living alone,
You must use your own judg
ment, make your own home;
And as to my. near neighbor,
before It's too late.
Just check your own life,
don't watch my mistake.
M. G. Churchill.
