WHAT 13 A RAINY OUTING?
A shortage of carton umbrellas.
A scran under the tables.
Diluted dill pickles.
Potato soup from potato salad.
Swimming butter pats.
Fotato chips without the crisp.
Hope for future outings.

EDITORIAL BAROMETER Where is the top?
OBSERVATORY At 3:30 came the summons "Awake ye star gazers I” Momentarily we wished we had not signed up. But, with the revival
of life in the hall, we anticipated
the event. About fifty of us started the upward climb on the rein- kissed hillside. The observatory shone as a beacon in the night for it was illuminated with red lights. We were thrilled as we lifted our eyes from the slumbering town below to the towering Massanutten Peak and thence to the celestial lights of Saturn, Jupiter,
