L Entezed as second class matter at Brew=r HIGHWAY WORK OF GREAT BENEFIT Many men have been at work due to efforts of highway department officials and the county commissioners. This work comes at a time when it is most needed. The state had men working at various points along the net-work of highways. This work, under direction of Sam Humes, was really a great move and it showed that those in charge re- alized that many unemployed needed bread and butter. The state highway department has made it known that all available money will be spent as soon as possible to give woz'k to idle men. At election time we should repay these officials with "gobs and gobs" of votes. Their efforts have not only giv- en many families aid, but they have lessened the demand for relief, a demand that might have caused many to play a much stronger role in being' their brother's keeper. THE SAGE STILL THRIVES Speaking of putting men to work, D. S. Gamble de- serves credit for putting one to work--working on a big feed. A hungry man came to Mr. Gamble asking work. Dan stated that he had nothing for him to do, but finally said "This is not my land, but this brush doesn't look good. Clean these few sagebrtlsh off." The applicant said that we would like to eat first. Mr. Gamble gave him fifty cents and the stranger partook of a healthy feed and went on his way rejoicing. The sage still thrives by the side of the road. APPEALS TO ALL AGES Last Sunday afternoon, men and boys aging from 10 years up, were busy at baseball practice on a vacant lot. For some reason or other, baseball seldom loses its appeal to anyone who has ever played the game. Maybe its be- cause the game is strictly a product of the United States. Anyway its aptly named the Great American Game. CLEAN UP ON CLEANUP DAY April 2 has been designated as Brewster's official cleanup day and it should be well observed. As Mayor Downing says in his announcement, "A clean city is an attractive city." But' why not make every day a Cleanup Day. Not only clean up, but paint up, build up, improve your lawns and yards, your buildings, your attitude toward your home town, and best of all, Keep It Up. CUT LE RAIL FARES Go March 24, 25, 26, 27.

Crimson and White VOLUME NO. 9 MARCH 25, 1932 NUMBER 24 ii , STAFF Editor ................ Whaneta Crossland Ass't Ed ......................... Elsie Baltz Reporters ................ English I1 Class OTHERS OPINIONS A wise boy profits from the exper- iences of others. A spineless one rests entirely upon others. A delicate bal- ance is needed betwen dependence and independence. Somewhere be- tween "Taking nothing from others" and "Taking" all from others," there is a middle ground where the profits from others' experiences, and yet maintains his own intellectual inde- pendence. There were facts that a majority of those present hold an opinion, does not prove its truth. It should, however, cause us to carefully weigh the evidence. To be able to differ and remai; friends--to be able to argue without heat--he have respect for other per- sons viewpoints, and yet in a kindly way try to point out wherein we dif- ferthese are long steps towards ef- fective living with people. To develop the art of kindly per- suasion and courteous debate is to equip yourself with something neces- sary for fitting efficiently into any social or business group. "Harsh ar- guments generally heat, and heat e- vaporates reason." Most people do not want to be "told" but th'ey can reason if they do not get too angry at first. THE DOOR KNOB It may be glass, brass, crockery, or any one of the very numerous cam- pounds of metals that compose the alloys, never-the-less, it is a big' fac- tor in the lives of every American. In our homes, garages, offices, schools I and churches the doorknob takes an important part. Usually it is the first step taken upon the entering of a building. i i No matter what type of doorknob it is, you may usually judge the char- acter of its owner by it. There may be dirt on it or there may be a small wooden knob in its place, or it may be polished and spotlessly clean. All of these give hints of the person's character who owns it. A good metal door-knob often may last several generations anti so should be looked upon with respect that one gives our eldrs. A doorknob often influences one's whole life. If on a point of indecision as to whether you should enter a room, you may look at the knob on the door for an answer. If it is cold antt hostile looking, you may stay !out, or if it is glowing all over with the word "enter" you should grasp the knob, open the door and enter the room. One's character may also be judg- ed by the way one grasps the knob If he slam into it with his hand and turns it with a sharp jerk, he or she is called a forceful person. A timid person may turn it slowly, as does a person in meditation, and enter si- lently or with a quivering little step. On one's home one should have a cheerful doorknob to welcome him and give a feeling of reassurance. The young' man or boy should have a doorknob that does not squeak so that he may gain access to the home l without the that his fath- knowledg'e er or mother has heard him get in at: three or four o'clock in th .morning. For a farmer or rancher a door- knob of metal or crockery would be good, while at the home of a prom- inent business man a glass doorknob should be seen on evry door. i i i SENIOR HISTORY GEORGE GRANT "Grany," pardon me, George, is the senior class president and of course we have lots against him. He has made a very good president this zeal.. Mr. Grant's home is in Del Rio, Washington, but he has worked in Brewster for the last two school terms and attended our school. He has taken part in all activities and surely isn't lacking in spirit. .The students of B. H. S. are g'oing to miss this boy who always has a cheery smile and wise crack for ev- erything. PERSONALS Priscilla and tiarlan Pendleton, with Marian Asbury went on a hige Sundiy. Miss Humphrey spent Sunday af- ternoon at the school house decorat- ing for the play. Eva Widel and Tlten Bertr'tm went  .... horseback riding Sunday. Maurice .Pettit is back in school ..... -, after being absent for several days.  Elsie Baltz returned to school Mon- day after an absence of four days because of illness. Billy Conley rode horseback to Beebe Saturday. Most of the high school students': seemed to recover from their colds last week end. Doris Holland and Verys Weaver had an accident with their car last week. While passing another ear on A door without a knob, is like a hx a  car tipped over. :when  e ' s righted, it was chair without a seat; the chair .umY:driven on without any harm bein2" be use, yes, but to a great incon- venience. It is th same with the door. If the doorknobs were taken sudden- ly from our lives, with the knowledge of how to make them, we would be lost. DON SINES done, Under Miss Humphrey's direction, the stage is taking' on a new appear- once. It has some trees in place of the tan boards that have been there previously. This scenery is to be used !in the play, Deacon Dubbs.
