TO A BIXXKR TAIL.
The Women's Civic League has dis
cussed the advisability of installing
a lunch counter at the Columbia High
School for the use ot pupils who live
so far away that they can not go
home at midday.
The old residents of Columbia
and some of those who would not call
themselves old will note tho real
modcrnncss of a school lunch counter.
When they went to school they never
thought about going home at noon.
Each little boy and girl carried a shin
ing dinner pail. But the brightness
o; the exterior of the pail was not
its most attractive feature. That was
found on the Inside. A layer of head
cheese between slices of mother-made
bread, a Jam sandwich and three big
almost holeless doughnuts that was
enough for the healthiest boy. And
he often carried a doughnut back
home with him at night
The noon-hour was the best period
ot the school day. The tin-bucket
gang made things lively. Many
pleasant and amusing memories clus
ter around the little tin dinner-pail.
Aviation is apparently on the wane.
That thrilling sport so popular

heart. Though it is about as danger
