The Kearney high schoolers
had seen copies of and had read
both the Rag and Scarlet and
Cream, Builders publication.
Two boys from Bertrand said
that they were working on their
high school publications. They
had read both the Rag and Scar

they were "pretty good."
These two students were in a
group that was taken on a tour
of the Journal. They agreed that
this trip was quite interesting
but too brief. They would have
liked to have spent more time
learning of the actual workings
