POLITENESS CONTEST'
WINNERUNNOUNCED
(Continued from fli'3t page)
polite thing to do, so she too lost her
chance for the prize.
Politest Girl
But you are Interested in the girl
who is to get the dollar. This girl is
polite not only at school and church but
in the home and on the street. One day
this little girl said to another girl, "Its
nice to be polite and get the prize but
it is nicer to be polite and not get the
dollar." This girl knew the real mean
ing of politeness/. She was polite foi
the sake of being polite and not for the
honor or award that would come of it.
gfce was polite because it was tnd right
thing to do. So after very careful
watching I have decided that thte is the
most polite girl that I can find. Her
name is Kathryn Farrell. She is the
daughter of Mr. and Mrs Douglas
Farrell, who reside at 709 Ross. Ave.
The politeness detective in the boys'
contest made the following report
The first boy that attracted my at
tention after this contest started was
John You had just finished announc
ing this contest and given out a hymn
when John politely handed a hymn book
to his Sunday school teacher and in so
doing scored one point ^m this contest.
But since that time I have seen several
other boys do the same thing and tho
John seems to be a pretty well behaved
boy, he didn't score above the average
of such boys
Speaks to All Boys
I made a practice of speaking to
every boy that I met on the street and
most of them were polite in returning
my salutation.
There was one boy that lives on the
corner who said, "Good morning," in
such a bright optinfistic way that I
thot it would be worth while looking
him up a little more. So I called at
his home one evening. He spoke to me
again very cordially and appeared to
be polite without being sissy. As I
went away, he started out too and when
I asked him if he was going to walk
to the depot with me he said, "No, I'm
going out to play. The policeman got
after me once and ran me home but he
can't catch me and I'm going out on the
street again."
Then I thot, *'lt Isn't polite to break
the cuifew law, ,$he most polite boy
in this town will? surely obey the laws
of the town." ^Then I-went on my way
but the boy that twes on the corner had
lost the politeness prize.
Met Country Boy
Next I met Wy. Roy is a country
boy and he came to town to take part
in a spelling contest. A fellow never
can tell what majWUappen to him when
he gets his lessons well at school He
may get into a spelling contest or ado
clamation contest or something else
that will take him away from Rome
among strangers and some of those
strangers may have their weather eyes
open for a boy with unusual qualities
The prize may not always be a dollar
but many a boy has captuied a valuable
prize or found a valuable opportunity
when awav from home in this way bj
true politeness
"What was the woid, if you please'"
asked ROY, when (he Superintendent
had pronounced a woid foi the class
which he failed to undet stand
The supeimtendeut pionounced tho
-woid again
"Tlwmk jou," s.iul Rov
Roj was scoring high but I didn ste
him any moie aft^r Hint dav But I
am going to see him again some 'la\
and see if he is just as polite when the
teacher isn't looking
Freckled Face Boy
Pass the bread, please. said th^
freckle faced hoyrfmc dav .is ho -..U it
dinnei
"Aie jou two boys the same loom
at school'" asked the stranger
"Uh hu," said the freckled faced boy,
and he lo&t his chance foi- the polite
ness prize.
One Sunday I came to church late
and sat down in a back seat beside a
boy rretty soon a little girl came in
and there seemed to be no seat lor her.
The boy immediately got up and took
his coat off his seat and offered the seat
to the giil Thon when she was seated,
he went oft and found a seat for him
self I asked -Ihe girl if the boy was
her biother She said that he was not,
{fiat his name was Gerald Jensen ^Af-
ter the sev\ic I talked with Gerald
He told me he lived at 811 River Ave.
I don't know whether I have found
the most polite boy in Warren or not
but according to the score that I have
kept on the boys I have met, I will have
to vote the politeness prize to Gerald
Jensen of 811 River Avenue. Gerald
is the son of Mr and Mrs Gus Jensen
