Plans for expanding objectives and
activities of both departments led to
a proposed revival of this practice.
Both Miss Mohr and industrial arts
instructor Dwight Spayth endorsed
the program as practical and worth
while for students of both groups.
Woodworking projects of their
own choice are being undertaken by
shop boys. Lamps and shelves seem
to be the popular choice. The final
six weeks period will find students
working in sheetmetal when ash
trays and sugar scoops will be made
from discarded tin cans. Sheet
aluminum projects and soldering are
also in the program.
Tie racks and other items are to
be constructed by seventh graders.
Many have chosen to make lamps
as the project of their selection.
Industrial Arts of the upper
grades are creating wood furniture
where construction and finishing are
stressed while a series of machined
metal tools is in the curriculum of
advanced students. Screwdrivers,
all-metal hammers, chisels and
punches have been turned out and
items of their own selection will con
stitute the work of the remaining
12 weeks of school.
CARD OF THANKS
We wish to thank all our friends
and neighbors, together with the
Lions club, churches and school for
their help after the recent loss of
our home by fire.

Saving Onion
To use part of an onion and keep
the cut surface from drying, slit the
skin and rut out the portion of onion
needed then wrap the skin back
over the leftover part. Keejj a cut
onion in a cool place, wrapped in
waxed paper to keep the odor from
other foods as much as possible.
GranS Ludiee
The largest masonry structure ev
er erected by man is the Grand
Coulee Dam on the Columbia river.
The dam is seven times as big as
the Cheops pyramid in Egypt. Its
spillway can form a waterfall five
times the average flow of Niagara
and three times as high.
Washing Fluffy Slippers
Fluffy bedroom slippers of pile
fabrics can be washed. Wash in
lukewarm suds, rinse well, don’t
wring at all. Squeeze gently in a
towel to remove some of the mois
ture and brush or shake occasion
ally during the drying process.
Brush again when thoroughly dry to
bring up the soft nap which gives
warmth.
