Gospel Tour to West Virginia
Sunday morning, the twelfth of November a group of ten students went forty miles into the mountains, where they held services in a schoolhouse.,
Several members of the tour attempted to bring the Gospel message by means of teaching in Sunday School, Lester Shank and Mahlon Hess talked to an attentive audience, A men's quartette consisting of Earle Maust, Landis Martin, Paul Hunsberger, and John Hess sang several selections. There was music also by a ladies’ quartette composed of Ruth Hess, Araminta Lehman*
Molly Brunk* and Sara Jane Weaver. The audience requested that the group repeat several of the numbers sung*
The students were grateful for the sumptuous meal which was provided by a hospitable mountaineer.
In previous years each member of the senior classes has gone to town to the studio to have his picture taken. This year the class decided to hare the pictures taken on the campus to eliminate the usual expense and confusion of haring each senior go to town*
The schedule proved to be verv satls- factory. I, as well as Mr* and Mrs. Gitchell
2? eac£°KherS> &Xeatl7 aPP^iate the*" $ way each Senior cooperated with the plan*
We also appreciate Sister Eshleman*e willingness to inconvenience herself in loaning Room "R" to be used as a studio during the two days*

English Composition ClasB
When the class in English Composition met on Wednesday, November 15, it was literally given a "baptism of fir&J” The baptism consisted of a command to write and correctly spell the word,"fiery," in the superlative degree,
We were given-a few momenta to comply and then the collective ignorance of the class was placed on the blackboard in the form of 15 different versions I Spelling class, please note!—and, by the way, try that word sometime, will you?I The correct spelling may be found elsewhere in this issue.

Mountain and forest in colors gay
Attract the eyes of one and all.
Hills and fields in coats of brown, but say! Of all the seasons I like the fall*
Majestic trees in glorious splendor My innermost being enthrall*
All nature exhibits the praise of its Creator Of all the seasons I like the fall*
The song of the bird has died away--
O’er distand hill I hear the crow call— A hushed feeling grows o'er my soul,
but not to stay*
Of all the seasons I like the fall,
—James M, Shank
College Biology Class
Bro. Eostetter believes in making our biology class practical. After we had finished studying the mushroom, what aia
h# brtag us ©ach but a dish of delicious mushrooms* Some of ue had rifev^r eat311 th*aa before, and one girl declared they'tasted like fat meat* Most of us enjoyed them very much.
Along with our study of bacteria w>> discussed the various cheeses which are ripened by them. I-imburger was included* Bro* Hostettey placed a large disk of crackers on the table, and then proceeded to unwrap a number of packages he had brought in. They contained six different kinds of Cheese-~Yelveeta,?aImette, Swiss, Old English, Roquefort, and Limburger, To some of us Limburger was worse than medicine^ We all tried to eat it and succeeded to a greater or lesser degree* We did have considerable difficulty in persuading the laboratory assistant to try it, however.. He held it at arms length and gazed at it, uncertain as to whether hs would eat or not.,
We can all say that we know how Lim- burger smells and tastes*
Harsh, jangling inaist*nct? of clamorous belle, The diu of busy voices scattering*
A mad scurrying of slippered feet*
Then all is still
Save for subdued murmuringe As night swoops down*
So death may comes A sudden clarion call,
A startled stumbling,
A hush-—-- .
And we are gone.

The Reception Room bell is very ill, due to the nervousness of the gentlemen who use it. It has had a very busy life*
It arrived at this place and took up its duty October V, 1938, just after the death of the one preceding it. At that time it was referred to as "a bell similar to our old faithful." Now it is spoken of in a more respectful manner* I am sure that the boys who use it do not mean to be hard on it. but in their haste they fail to take it easy with their old friend* It has served us for thirteen months and sevssn days,, It was allowed about three months vacation during the summer* The increased enrollment and an increased number of reasons for its use has caused it to give way under the strain., I fear its days are numbered, for it can barely manage to perform its duty., It mu3t b& with a sigh of relief and satisfaction that it turns its duty over to the next bell, because its purpose in life has been fulfilled.
It has been suggested that roller skates be purchased for the waitresses. Perhaps it would be a good idea, especially for Sunday duty when guests arrive by the "tables” Of course we wouldn’t want to prevent anyone from visIMng E* M. S.. No, indeed!
We heartily welcome all visitors to our Dining Hall, Just to let you know how prominent the place is becoming, w% report that there were actually eight guest tables last Sunday noon, November 12* We hope they all enjoyed being with .us for truly w© appreciated having them and we invitingly say, "Come again*”
