Each breath 0 the cool morning air makes one feel full of vim, thus making him all the more interested in the various things he comes across. Each little bird flits about in the trees singing his own little song, and as all the notes harmonize, the air is Easter 1filled with music, which brings joy ] to all who hear it. With the music What is the meaning of Easter?of the woods ringing in your ears, It means a great deal to some folks, but to others it means only a vaca- you journey home, inspired by the !beauty .of nature. --R. C., '25 tion. I --1925.- The week before Easter, known as The Daffodils "Holy Week" is celebrated every year in honor .of the great historical event, "The Ascension of the Christ Child" in every mind and heart that rc.:'.liy appreciates Easter vaca- tion, should be the holy thoughts of our Saviour LoI we have heard now how the Saviour Child Dispensed salvation by his advent hither, How He, the Lord's great Son, freed and protected :Folk 'n'ath the clouds, so that each mortal Row, While he is dwelling here alive, must choose-- Be it hews base shave, or heaven's fair fame, Be it majestic state, or the rash one's hate, De it song with the Lord, or with devil' discord. Be it pain with the grim, or bliss with cherubim, Bee it life or death, as it shall liefer be For him to act while flesh and spirit dwell Within the world. Wherefore let glory be, Thanks endless, to the noble Trinity. This poem is taken from "The Choice of Mortals," written by Cyne- wulf. If studied carefully it will be found tha, t it sums up the great work that Christ did for this world and warns against evil doing. It has been the custom for many years to give Easter eggs as a gift on Easter. The egg is the symbol of a birth into a new life which is figurative of the death of Christ. The coloring of the eggs was per- 00925.. on request. 114 Pag (llutrateO Catalog, hacludinll informathm oB How and What to Plar "32 Years el atLsfoio." 1913B Sixth Ave., seattle, Wash The daffodil is one of the most beautiful flowers we have. Every- one kn, ows' this common flower as the of the first signs of spring. The daffodil has a golden yellow color all its own, even the common dandelion is not of the same hue though it also is a beautiful flower. In the latter part of winter, after the sne.w has disappeared /from the ground and the air has become warm, we see in the furthermost corner of the I garden green shoots springing up from the earth as if by magic. These shoots will in a few weeks develop bud's which enlarge as the days tress. V.ery 0or b without warni4ng 4 beautiful yell'ew flower blowing in the breezes catches the eye. Thi flower is the yellow daffo- dil. The daffodil may be seen grow- ing in most any garden, for who would neglect to beautify his yard with, ot the presence of the daffodil ? For centuries past the daffodil has grown in America, and because of its delicate golden color, perfume and beauty, poets have endeavored to describe the daffodil in beautiful words, as only poets ca. --M. F.,'25 "I wandered lonely as a cloud That floats on high o'er vales and hills, When all at once I saw a crowd, A host o.f golden daffodils, Beside the lake beneath the trees, Fluttering arl dancing in the breeze." .1925-------- An Original Composition of Spring As Reviewed by the Students of the Spanish IV Class La Primavera .Per lea estudientes de la elass es- panola Per fin la primavera esta aquid!

On the contrary the adustTaent of zts outstanding securities made possible by this Receivership will give the railroad an opIamitv to finance new and improved facilities needed to render eves better service. That portion of the West and Northwest through which thJb Railroad operates has been especially hard hit by agricultural and general business depression. In addition much tonnage has been diverted to the Panama Canal .-nd the widespread use of t automobile has caused a large decrease in passf.nge travel by rail f The  of these conditions has been aggravated by the that in this section of the country freight rates have been lowe than in throe regions where the business depression was less acute.. Regasdless of these things the Milwaukee has had to pay as high a scale of Wages, as high a price for Materials and as high Taxes as have been paid by the most prosperous railroa  the heavtest  As a result the Milwaukea has paid no dividends in recen mm and has had dlfEcnlty in earning enough net operatlnginceam m meet f=ed chargeL Th meem that although the owners of the pmpetWhave In Imt loss, neither its employas of its  have called up0a to share this burden.

Nadie puede olvidar que las primavera esta aqui cuando serrte el aire fresco y cuando eel el sol hermoso. Pete alas.* losoros alumnos des- fortunad'os de la escuela municipal (alta) no estamos permitido gozar del aire primavera; nosotros tenemos que sentanos en ta sala de class y hablar en aspenol acerca do los pajavas, la hierba verde, y el aire fresco. Tenemos que quedar debajo los ojos d las professora, Grady y querer que no habia escuela. Per entonces, annque nosotros pobres estudantes no podemos gozar la promavera todavia, demeos lamen- tar porque del cuatro de junio po- demos, tenor toda la vacacion que queremos. Supongo que entances desearemos que no habia vacacion pero sale la clase de espanol! (Translation) Spring By Students of the Spanish Class At last .spring is here! Although straw hats are not ye in evidence, still each one has an attack ef sring .fever. (We hope that the freshmen will not pattern after the jtiors be- cause the juniers have a large num- ber of cases of spring fever). What a relief is sping time after the long weary months of winter Our thoughts turn to better and greater things--for instance it is said that in spring young man's thoughts turn to thoughts of love. The warm sun- shiine and the fresh air put life and pep in everyone. No one can ignore the fact that spring is hre when he feels the fresh air and sees the beau- tiful sun. But alas! We ufortunate students c the high school are not permitted to enjoy the spring air. We have to sit in our c?ass room and talk in Spanish about the birds, the grass that is turning gTeen, and' the fresh air. We have to study under the vigilant eyes of the teacher. Miss Grady, and look out of the window and wish that there were no school. But then, although we poor stu- dents cannot enjoy spring yet, we should worry, because after the fourth of June we can have all the vacation we want. I suprmse that then we shall wish that there were no vacation but c!nly Spanish class. .1925.-- Goi' a Fishin' I grab my fishin' pole and away I go Into the hills campin' for a week or o, What care I for the cold in the morn ? It is summer time now and the days grow warm. Do I go alone,? Not I, for you see, Rover, my collie, is follerin' me. Together we go away for a wek Into the mounntains for the fish that we seek. At Night at the foot of a friendly tree We sleep very sound, just Rover and me. And just as the sun comes' over the hill We both get the finest kind of a thrill. The fish are bitin' fine in the streams And Rover nd me get heart-thrill- in' gleams Of speckled trout, so. slippery and fine, That we just see 'em wigglin' on the end of the lne. At night we both sit in tI top of the tree Lokin' the world over from sea to sea. What do we see, it is hard to de- scribe, But Rover and me are glad to be alive. --M. V. F. '25 --1925 P. T. A.

Then it will be read for the first game. The lines on the old tennis court are being re-painted. It Will be just as go.od and maybe better than the new court is.

Is # only a desire forchangeP II Is ff a matfer Or i$ it all a question of taste No--mere desire for change will not explain why so many thousands of smokers all over the country are changing from other cigarettes to Chesterfield. t'# something more fundamental. No---price does not account for this sweeping turn-about in cigarette popularity, for Chesterfield is sold at the popular price---it costs the same as any of the largest selling brands. Yes--that's the answer. It is taste and taste alone that explains Chesterfield's sweeping gains. And taste is a matter of tobacco quality. I We scare it as our honest- belief that the tobaccos used in Chestert]eld are of tner quality (and hence of better taste) than in any other cig- arette at the price. Liggett & Myers Tobacco Co. --and this belief is shared by cigarette smokers the country oor. .w.rrv & Mvs To.acco Co and track credits not received, we offer a few suggestions: Now girls, don.'t get angry, but you did rmt eser,e those credits and if you stop to consider the other side of it you will see the question as others see it. Credits are only given to those who turn ,out at least two nights a week for a semester.. You know as well as the faculty that you turned out but a very few times after school. Many that made the baseball team only turned out dur- ing the gym period. Would you want a credit in gymnasium and then turn around and ask for another credit for baseball or track which you did not earn? It is not fair. You refer to the boys. that they re- ceived credits. Many of these boys turned out faithfully ight after night and dd not receive any credit far it, yet you, who turned out when rou felt like it expect a credit for it. Suppose you had received a credit !or it, then the faculty would experi- ence something like this: Two stu- dents go out and play a game of tennis, marbles or tiddiee-winks, then come in and want a sixteenth or a tewntieth OfoakCredit for it. Baseball Next Friday afternoon the Mon- roe high school will start the base- ball season with a game here against the Snohomish high nine. Monroe's record in three years has been one game won, but neverthe- less the team feels that it will give a good account of itself, and with the loyal support of the students there may be a possibility of a team which will be the nucleus of a champion- ship team in years to come. Ore of the benefits of baseball is that size doesn't count for so much but rather ability to use a person's mental faculties. This year there are some thirty bys out for baseball, of whom only two are seniors. This means that the foundation for a strong team is being laid'. Monroe high school will be able in the next three years to make up its prestige because the town is back of the team and the town team i pulling for Monrae high school. Monroe's-prospects so far for the team of '25 is: , Catchers--McGimn, soph; E. Nel- son, junior; Herley. soph; . Newell, junior; Crlson, fresh. Pitchers---W.. Nelson, soph; Theiss, junior; ttobson (Capt.), .senior; Con- nelly, fresh. Irfielders-w. Buss, senior; ttalpin., fresh; Shay, fresh. Outfielders ---Reaper, jfinior; It. Newell. junior; Carlson, fresh. Those who have a good chance for a place: Lord, fresh; Bjorling, fresh; Brown, junior; L. Reaper, fresh; Walker, fresh. .1925 Debate & senior debate was held in the English room Friday, March 27th.
