Westbrook Factory Representative Rocky Mount, N. C. The Country Problem v The greatest problem of coun try life today ia lack of enjoy ment. We say that the people on the farms make a great mis take by leaving their country homes and going to the towns and cities, but who can blame them when even the smaller communities afford more places of recreation than the people re ceive in the country. in almost every respect lite in the open country has improved Gone are the days when the farmer's wife churned, spun, wove, dyed, made clothes for a family of twelve and wound up in the insane asylum. , The day has come when rota tion of crops, analysis of soils, scientific war-fare upon pests, the use of farm machinery, the adoption of special methods such as intensive farming, dry farm ing arid the organization of "co operatives," and of political par ties here and there have gained great advantage. Yet with these improvements country life is dull. If men and women with vision and trained minds are expected to stay on the farm they must not only be I promised prosperity but a jovial, sociable, merry existence. In most country communities the thing people look forward to with greatest intesest is the little country church and the time for the "Big meetings" which usual ly comes off sometime in July or August. To these meetings come people for miles around and even from the nearby towns bringing with them great baskets and boxes of food which they spread on tables built for that purpose out under the trees. This means enjoyment for any visitor who may be present. But ir. late years this has been declining. The people need gen teel amusements such as play grounds and motion pictures. There is now a, considerable array of books and pamphlets ex plaining how these places can be established and how some com munities have already tried it successfully.

VV hen it is gone This (lower so dear Let us with joy and pride Greet it next year. Why we Celebrate Easter A poem written by Thelma Bark ley '24. Do you know why we celebrate Easter? Have Easter egg hunts and all? Why we think of lillies and rab bits, And see pictures of Christ on the wall? ' . Have you ever heard the story, Of the Jews that nailed Christ to the Cross? Of all the pain he suffered and bore, So that men on earth would not, be lost. They mocked him and pierced his side with spears, And gave him a crown of thorns, And left him on the cross to die, And he rose on Easter Morn. They put him in Joseph's tomb, And left him and went away, And there he stayed until he arose, On the dawn of Easter day. And we celebrate this day with flowers, With lillies pure and white, When Jesus arose from the dead, And brought back the world its light. FLOWERS About a month ago a Wild Flower Committee was appoint ed at the Parent-Teachers meet ing, consisting of several teach ers. A table was placed in the hall and the teachers announced to the pupils to bring all the wild flowers they could find to school. These flowers were identified by the teachers and plated on the table for the pupils to pass by and see. There were splendid results made immediate ly, and the flowers were brought in large numbers. At the pres ent time there has been fifty-two different varieties found. On April the fourth, a wild flower exhibit was given at the school building to let the people of the town see the different varities that grow near here, at this meeting a very interesting talk was given by Miss Coble on Flowers. Several grades are taking a special study of flowers for a while. We are being bene fited by these flowers and will continue to bring them to place on the table. , This teaches the pupils to ob serve nature more closely and to appreciate the common things around them. Some of the Eng lish pupils have been inspired to such an extent as to write poem3 on flowers.
