Two University girls, dressed i in unusual, costumes of black and red, were charming in a clever dance. A :red-headed college youth sang some jazz songs, accompanying himself on a steel guitar. After the banquet, the delegates were favored with mo- tion pictures of the University Cam- pus and further entertainment in Bagley Auditorium. The enthusiasm of Mrs. MacNee and the ingenuity of Bob Newell made the Monroe delegates feel at home. Would you think that Bob could talk and act like a Jew? Or. can you imagine the other lady and gentlemen members of the delega- tion saying, "What ood-looking fel- lows!"--or "What beautiful eyes?' We can, because we were there. --1925-26----- She Would Go Elsewhere "Will you go along with me to the zoo?" asked Mrs. MacNee of Miss Sherrill. "No, thank you; I'll stay at home; one of my seniors does the kangaroo walk, one of my juniors talks like a parrot, and one of my Soohomores laughs like a hyena, my friend watch- es me like a hawk, my cook is cross as a bear, and my sister says I'm an old gorilla. Wen I go anywhere, I want a change." ---1925-26- Epidemic Expected Mrs. MacNee (In senior english class): "Now, I am not going to ac- cept any more back work unless you l are home sick."

Went up town to fifty stores; Bought a rad% set galore, Set looked good, best of all, (Noted it wa - in a concert to stall) Static was good--volume was bum; Tubes wouldn't burn--they were full of gum. Static it cogect, noises were fine, Set was good, 'twas a Squeal-o- dyne. 'Twas Friday eve on a Monday night, Stations were rotten, but set was right; It was 7OD music it sent out; All seemed to hit the sunny south. 15 O0 Radio Bill, on his set he heard A lady yodeling like a sun-stroke bird. That voice of hers, like braying calves Blew up the set right in two halves.

I EVERGREEN STATE SHOWN IN EAST For the fi-st time since the world war the Great Northern is taking several large exhibits of agricultural products of the states of Minnesota North Dakota, Montana, Idaho, Wash- ington and Oregon, to call attention to the opportunities for farmers in these states. The largest exhibits awe at the Illi- nois State Fair, Springfield, Ill., Sept. 19 to 26; at the Dairy Cattle Con- gress, Waterloo, Iowa, Sept. 28 to Oct. 4; and at the National Dairy Exposition, Idianapolis, Ind., Oct. 10 to 17. The exhibits consist ef the principal agricultural prod'ucts of grain and forage; the principal vegetables like potatoes and sugar beets, and other fruits and vegetables processed in large display jars; enlarged framed phoographs and transpaxent illum- inatd photographs of farms, dairying and livestock, forage and grain crop scenes. The opportunities for diversified farming, livestock raising and dairy- ing, forage crops of corn, alfalfa, sweet clover and other grasses, were especially featured. The exhibits occupied a space of from 40 to 60 feet in length and 8 to 10 feet in depth. The products were displayed on neatly decorated walls and shelving with the names of the states prominently displayed in each exhibit. At Springfield, Illinois, by actual count, 80,000 people passed the ex- hibit. At Waterloo, Iowa, the attend- ance was 97,000 people. A large pro- pmrtion of the people were actual farmers and many of them stopped to careftlly linspect te extilits and talk with the agricultural represen- tatives of the railroad, who were in attendance, to secure information about the country. At Indianapolis, ndiana, it is expected that the at- tendance will be equally as great and that visitors will come from several surrounding states. The exhibits were kept open from l early in the morning until late at i night, and the attendants were kept busy continually in conversation with the visitors ad providing them with literature about the states in which i they were interested. Hundreds reg- i istered. At each place thousands of pieces e.f printed matter were distributed and went into the hands of paVdes who appeared to be good, substantial people and potential homeseekers. There were large numbers of farm- ers an their families who were not in position t move immediately, but who were interested in learning more about the opportunities offered home- seekers in these northwsern sset seekers in these northwestern states. Many people returned to visit the exhibits several times and frequently brought friends With them. In additio.n to these large exhibits , because s.. ppreciates values-- because she'll like the simplicity, the faithfulness,the Ml-round performance of ATWATE00 K00NT NADIO / Nearly everybody knows that no receiving set or radio speaker can equal , the Atwater Kent at the ! price.

WILLIAMS JEWELER Monroe, Washington thought so; Irvin Faussett at it again or yet. My, those Freshmen, when will they learn to be like us dignified Seniors? Two of us sit here watching the actions before us in our stately assembly. First a race track iS before us with Pat Campbell tying Margaret Bascom; then a boxing circle with Wayne and Pat coming to a draw: a football field when Tom and Wilford playing the game over again; and' Ohi Gladys viewing herself in her minute mirror trying to powder her nose; what a beauty parlor; we hear a gentle voice humming the latest song, what a warble some people have. Oh! here comes one of those ,aper airplanes, look out, it is meeting a disaster worse than that of the Shenandoah. I sigh, two lonely Seniors in this seal of Freshmen, if we were only young and green once more. Wouldn't we have fun ? But suddenly silence reigns. I knew it. She is i)ack again. Thus ends the study _erioct and "All is well that ends well." --1925-26------- Personals Elva MacDougall, Laura Kennon, Harold Bailey and Robert Newell spent Friday and Saturday in Seattle attending the Journalists Conference at the University of Washington. Mrs. MacNee attended Friday after- noon and Satuirday morning, Miss Sherill the full session With the dele- gates, and Miss Himes Saturday. Mrs. Nales, from the Education De- uartment of the Jello Company, in Seattle, visited at the high school, Monday. She gave the morning food nreparation a lesson in JeUo making. She also gave a demonstration on waxed crepe paper flowers. She was very interesting and the classes are hopin that she will come again. Edith Kobe and Thelma McKenzie motored' to Everett Saturday. Genevieve West saw the "Fresh- man" Sunday, and reports it a very interesting and amusing nlav. Tom Herley and Pat McGinn also were in Seattle. 1925-26------ A Big Fish Mr. and Mrs. Halvarson, we heard, went on a fishing trip this week end. All of the pan, ties interested in fishing were in the beat, including worms, fish eggs, fish lines, poles and hooks. All aboard! On the way to the fishing ground' the worms kept rocking the boat much to the annoy- ance of Mr. Halvarson, who arrived at last before the boat turned over. After much wiggling and waggling the worms were finally placed on the hooks, an the hooks were dropped in the water. Mr. Halvarson ha about six fish poles fastened to the boat. It kept him busy baiting the hooks and the fish busy eating the delightful bait. Whoa! A JERK and there comes in sight a BIG fish. Whoop! The boat nearly turns over. Boy, he's a whopper. Uh-h-h! The fish got away--what a disaster. And he was at least a foot and three inches long, and a bass (according to Mr. Halvarson). Two weeks ago when Mr. Halvarsoh was fishing, he caught an eleven-inch bass, but this time-- ahem--we haven't seen it. The' fish- ermen managed to get back to the lan14ng without any mishap---or fish, and all forlorn. Yakima--Catholics raise first $42,- 000 for new $125,000 church. YakimaPresbyterians plan $175,- 000 church and social service group. a smaller exhibit was made at the Corn Palace, at Mitchell, South Da- r, kota Sept. 28 to Oct. 3. About 40,000 people attended the Corn Palace and the exhibit space was crowded con- tinuously throughout the day and dur-eef:l! .S ins the evening with real farmers, their wives, sons and daughters. A large number of them were especially "[ t EA IIE interested, and many of them looking for a new location. More than 5,000 pieces of printed matter were dis- tributed. Representatives of several of the Sail :i;t Civic and Commerce associations at- H0 tended some of these exhibits, and assisted in giving information about the country to visitors, calling atten- tion to their respective localities. The Great Northern also co-over- ated with the North Dakota traveling agrricultural exhibits at a number of i',lct small fairs in Iowa, where a vast amount of literature was distributed. and the country received a lot of good advertising. It was distinctly shown at all of 7 P. M.--2 Shows--9 P. M. these exhibits that a large number of farmers are seriously interested in finding a new farming location where their resources will enable them to establish themselves in farming, and they are especially interested in low i uriced productive land where diversi- i fled farming may be followed profit- ablY. I These exhibits have proven that there is a constantly increasing in- retest among farmers of the older states in low priced good agricultural lands. SKAGGS The Origin and Operation of Skaggs Stores A few days ago a lady called us on the phone to say that she had decided not to trade at Skaggs Stores any more. She gave as her reason that she frequently passed Skaggs Stores at night and often noticed the men working overtime and she did not think it fair that they be required to do so. This and similar occurrences de- noting a customer's interest and pos- sible misconception has impelled us to write a sextus of short articles dealing with the ogin, ownership and operation of Skaggs Stores and publish them opposite our weekly ad. Such questions as: "Why Our Men Work Overtime." "Who Owns Skaggs Stores." "How Much Profit We Make.  " the Profits Go." "How Skaggs Ideals Have Sere- ed To Make An Interesting And Profitable Game Out of a Com- mon and Lowly Vocation." "How and Why Mass Effort Properly Harnessed to Produc- tive Policies Can and Does Excel in Accomplishment." and many other incresting angles, which will portray the human interest and business romance of modern, co- operative big business.
