EDITORIAL BAROMETER Someone oaca said, nThs fine art of living is to draw from each person his best.," And yet, too many of us have poor eyesight, end unsympathetic hearts. Vie are only able to eee the faults of our fellow men. But no one in so faulty but that he has some good qualities. Let us cultivate appreciation and sincere good will toward othero. Let us train our ayes to see the best and our hearts to drsuv the finest and noblest from all whom we meet*
The result-—a rich life for usi
The assistant editor in the above paragraph has shown us the beauty of showing appreciation for others, rather than criticizing them. In order to make this praotical, the Weather Vane is starting a department known as the "Complimentary Corner". Each student is invited to drop into the Pc8 fc Office box a statement of appreciation c a compliment concerning any person, or any group of persons around the school. Often a littlo word of appreciation spurs a person on to greater achievements. Here's your opportunity to say ,!nioe" things* about people. Haro is the first one for a sample s
Complimentary Comer We wish to express our thanks to the girls* quartette who sang for us after 10:00 on Friday avening.
I have a fine class in Physics ? There is the gentlemanliness on James Histand, the pleasantness of Herbert Leaman, the enthusiasm of Carl Shetler, the sagacity of Stanley Shank, the reticence of George Hartr,ler, the willingness of Claude Miller, the optimism of Floyd Y»atkins and the thoroughness of Elmer Showalter, all of whioi are shared more or lass by the whole group.
We were informed in Child Study class last week that there are approximately 27,000,000 children in the United States that are receiving no religious training in their homes.
If we were to stand at a certain point and watoh this group pass at the rate of 1 per second, for
10 hours each day, it would take 750 days, or approximately two years for them all to paas.
What a challenges
Even in hiss Bible olass Bro. Cehraan lives up to hia profession. Every day we are given five questions which need one-word answers. In our olass on Friday he said, "Prove from the Bible that it pays to pronounce words correctly." He was refer** ring to the Ephrairdtos who lost their heady if the said "Sibboleth" instead of "Shibboleth". Another problem wes to spell "Jephthfih*. According :o the class there are twelve different ways to 3pell it.
To one of the students in the B section of Snflie
11 Mias Hartaler said, "What class of v/orda ioea "dunce" belong to?"
^"Either coined or technical," he replied.
”In what profession would it be a techMcai word?
"A sohool teacher," he replied.
In Bible Dootrine, true prayer was said ro consist of praise, adoration, petition, pleading, thanksgiving, intercession, communion, and waiting but of these thanksgiving and praiss should be given first place^ Bro. Stauffer related an inter esting story of a man who said if his children treated him, ®s moat people of today treat their Heavenly Father, he would take two trips a year each lasting six months. Hia point ws that we so often ask so muoh of God and do not give Hie. enough gratitude and praise for what He has done for us.
^ The Physics class has juat completed a study of heat, and are now studying the fundamentals of electricity. Among some of the interesting experiments that were performed waras the photographing and developing of pictures showing the lines of force around a magnet, making ibatie electricity capable of jumping an inch gap, and the making of various kinds of batteries. Today some students plan to do some copper-plating.

VARIABLE TURDS On the evening of March 1, the English Composition class met in extraordinary session in the chapel. Many visitors were present. After the preliminaries, such as the signing of oxcuee cards and the report on the member absent, the class "gave much" compositions and poems.
The visitors probably thought Dorothy Geil’s composition on "A Workday at Home” quite appropriate and greatly needed, following as it did, Parry iiertzler’a presentation of the hapleas "Jarvis Family". Both proceeding and following thia pair of compositions were others, dealing with hone life, sohool life, adventures and in- cidants—all the manifold and rich experiences of a full twenty years existence and of course, flavored with all the wisdom of Juniors in col- lags*
?is tht' English Composition reporter, I took a afcra,- vote among the visitors to determine which writings ware the most fully enjoyed. Those most often mentioned were as follows: The Jarvis
Family.,, Dining V/ith the Roifschnaders, V;hy Moth*is iiet Gray, A Ri?;ht Smart Mistake, and Warm Atmosphere .
