A well organized group of sixteen oolieg© students and Bro. Hostetter greatly enjoyed the four days spent in the city of Washington.
We considered it a privilege to visit the House of Representatives and hear the enthusiastic discussions on the Repeal of the Embargo Act. While hundreds were waiting in line for thoir turn to the gallery wo were taken there immediately by the private secretary of a Virginia Congressman.
The group looked a "bit" bewildered when the guide at the new supreme court, building told them the building had cost approximately ten million dollars, and the four ohandoliars hanging from the ceiling had oost ten thousand dollars eaoh.
In spite of all the finery we had soen, and the thrill received from walking on marble floors the assistant matron was still dissatisfied. She expressed the desire to slide down a 3mall marble inoline at the Lincoln Memorial and said that she would do it for a quarter. .Several quarters were offered, but to my knowledge her desire lias not yet been satisfied.
All wa3 going fine until we came to the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Here considerable time was lost. After all were finger-printed (some with great difficulty) we were released, eaoh one resolving "to b© good" in the future.
The tour was very educational and one to be remembered by all. --James Shank
"Demetrius is dead, but his spirit still lives." We have many people today who justify evil works because they are their means of livelihood. It is our duty to testify against such evils: the liquor traffic, the war propaganda
of the munitions manufacturers, the landlords of vice and crime, the purveyors of cqmmunism, atheism, otc. "Our own church is hot free from the Spirit of Demetriuc." Within her boundaries are those who serve Diana of the movies j of the fashion plate % of the cigarette. These evils nullify the testimony of many. ... On the site of the great temple of Diana today is a pond of fishes with croaking frogs. "What a symbol of the transitoriness of earthly things I"

While the earth remaineth—rcold and heat, and summer and winter**.shall not cease." On Saturday and Sunday snow and vapor and stormy wind fulfilled his word.
On Saturday noon a common expression was,
"The flakes are too largo, it won't last long." Nevertheless the snow oontinued to fall in large goose-feathor-lilce flakes. Saturday evening, still snowing* Sunday morning, snowing faster. Before long 14 inches of snow graced the cars parked about the school. Oliver Wenger went to Gospel Hill, but the sexton was the only one there* Ministers who started to go to West Virginia and other outlying points returned after turning around unintentionally*
Between 20 and 30 cars were stranded in the Blue Ridge. If the workers from Park Viexv would have ventured to go to tho Blue Ridge Sunday Schools, there would probably have boon 22 to 52 stranded.
There were over 600 telephones out of order in the Shenandoah Valley mostly caused by limbs of trees falling on them.

Faoulty members and their consorts enjoyed an unusual entertainment Thursday night in the Physastromathios Department. With cystic mutterings and magio passes, Bro. Braokbill conjured up for us a lovely dream in which there are still floating around bits of fluorescent minerals, anodes, and cathodes, mirror illusions, constellations, man-made lightning, Foucault pendulum, dancing pith- fairies, whirling table, ultra-violet rays, Einsteinisms, gyroscopes big and little, intercepting waves, visible voice, models of tho universe and other things.
Intermittently Sister Brackbill admiraietorod refreshments. It is a toss-up between brain and stomach as to whether host or hostess was the better entertainer.
There wasn't a dry thing in the whole evening except Sister Brackbill’s luscious cookie3— and they made one's mouth water.
Our host and ho::toss have given us the hope that next tire they will sing for us.

Read May Lamberton Backar's Adventures in Reading. Delightfully she writes of novels poetry, history, travel, nature, biography and so on. There are also lists of books at the end of each chapter.
Read travel books "because you expect to travel and because you don't". And read poetry because "to be young without pjatry is to be indoors in spring."
An excellent book for Sunday-sohool workers is Lawrence's "My Message to Sunday Sohool WorkersYou will not want to go far in the

After discussing at length tha matter of proper dress for school teachers, the fact was mentioned that the combination of blue and brown is not good at all.
