The Country Problem
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
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

A poem written by Mattie
Dear little violet
Now it is here,
With its wonderful fragrance
Brings us a cheer.
With its wonderful beauty,
This flower of blue,
In the forests and valleys
Is where it first grew.
This flower is loved
By insects and mankind
Although with its beauty
It is not hard to find.
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
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
So that men on earth would not,
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
On the dawn of Easter day.
And we celebrate this day with
With lillies pure and white,
When Jesus arose from the dead,
And brought back the world its
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
