Due to the fact that the mothers worked long and faith- fully in the preparation of this ban- quet, the Seniors were pleasantly sur- prised when they entered the hail, to find it beautifully decorated in the class colors of lavender and' white in flowers, bouquets, and hand painted menu cards. The Seniors were served a kingly feast by the Sophomore girls.

A certain man makes his living as a writer, and is better than the average. As he is young, and stead- ily improving, probably he will soon be one of the first-raters. In a let- ter to me he says: "I am convinced writing is a poor business; writers a poor lot. If I could make an equal- ly good living in any other way I wouldn't be a writer long." In an older day writers had a tremendous- ly good opinion of themselves. But lately men who do things in engih. eering t mechanics, manufacturi ng, agriculture, etc.,, are being recog- nized as the real force in the world. People are lately pointing with pride to those who have built a railroad', a turn,el, a bridge, a tall b,0ding, or done some other practical thing of real use to mankind, instead of to those who have written a book. We have been trying for centuries to get rid of flies, but so far as I can see flies are as numerous as ever and as regularly find their way into every ointment. The only way to get the laugh on the fools is to behave better th.n they do. The fools have not s yet found a way of sending a well be- haved, useful and successful man to jail. The fools do not like such a man, but have found no way of scaling his fortress. Law and custom have both decided that men and women of a certain age are too young to marry. There should be an agreed age when men and women are too old to marry. The old should be protected, not laughed at, as is our way. In thinking over my youth, I con- elude that I was fully as worthless as young people are now. The only difference I detect is that I was not able to get away with it as easily. as oung people do now. What is the thing we call com- mon sense? It is prayer practical- ly applied, assistance given hope. Life is like a game of cards. Reli- ability is the ace industry the king, politeness the queen, thrift the jack. Common sense is playing to best ad- vantage the cards you draw. And every da, as the game proceeds, yotl will find the ace, king, queen and jack in your hand and opportunity to use them. A Formidable Opponent The following we reproduce from the Sultan Valley News of recent date, and which shows that Monroe has men who are considerably in the limelight in ways political as well as in others. Here's Babcock's pan- egyrie to our mayor: Bascom's Thought One of the conspicuous punctua- tion marks of the meeting of inter- ested people at the Grange Hall at Monroe where the governor address- ed a large gathering, was the intro- dDctory remarks of Mayor Bascom. The mayor is a strong governor man and his presence in the race may complicate matters for some one. The mayor is a vigorous fight- er and a deep thinker and wou!d make a formidable opponent the way things stand at this time. CEREAL CROP INDUSTRY Consideration of the cereal crop industry in Washington and recom- mendations for its development will he a part of the second economic con- ference on Washington agriculture, which will be held at the Davenport Hotel in Spokane on June 14 and 15. All persons interested in the in- dustry are urged to attend. This is the second of a series of economic conferences which the State College is arranging. The first one, on dairying and' forage crops, was held in Seattle in March. Representative men who can con- tribute to this conference are asked to attend. This will be a working conference and its success will de- pend largely upon those who attend. The State College is submitting data concerning the cereal crops, but is making no recommendations. The members of the conference are ask- ed to do this, using the informatioh compiled by the college as a work- ing_ basis. Peter McGregor of Hopper will act as general chairman of the con- ference. J. Houston McCroskey of Garfield will be chairman of the pro- duction committee and A. Joorgenson of Wilbur will head the marketing committee. With 35 per cent of all the land under cultivation in Washington in 1919 devoted to wheat, and wiih other cereals being grown in many localities, the cereal crop industry is important here. The wheat acreage has increased from one million acres to more than two million acres in the last tweny-five years. During a twenty-five year period the average surplus of wheat in Washington has amounted to 65 per cent of the total crop.

Much fun was had by every one, not only in the general conversation, but also in the masterpieces render- ed by Mr Rhode, Ruth and Harriet. The banquet started at 6:30 and end- ed at 9"30, which shows again the continual thoughfulness of our parents. Speaking of thoughfulness, do WE think enough of our mothers? In- deed, we do. They have not labord, worried, and even wept, for us, in vain. We may not always show our true feelings, but under the outward surface there ever runs that fine,, splendid and meritable affection for them. To our mothers, then, we give praise and many thanks for a ban- quet long to be remembered in the hearts of the Seniors of '26. I. O. O. F.

Its principals work on the stage every day, not for money for themselves entirely, but in the interests of the homeless boys who are to follow them in the comfort of their home at Boys Town, which was formerly known as Overlook Farm, eleven miles west of Omaha. : In other musical comedy shows the actors strike and quit and sometimes the shows then break up. But not so with the "Greatest Boys' Show on Earth , for Father Flanagan s Boys never feel like striking or quitting. The only time a change is made in the cast, once it has started on. its six-month tour, is when some lad be- [.comes ill or is adopted. Then there [are many more homeless lads at Boys [Town, who will jump at the chance to ]band master, who helped the lads prepare for their tour. "They had no [worries, for they said they knew that Father Flanagan would care for them." No admission is charged for the boys' show. They will give two per- formances in Monroe shortly. The afternoon performance is to be for children and the evening performance for adults. Father Flaagan's Boys' Home at Omaha, is non-sectarian.
