The Campfire girls of Ponca City-
donated twelve blankets to the Junior
high school football team. The dona-
tion was made by Santa Claus, dur-

used for all the future athletic teams

C. A. is organized to accomplish at
least one thing each year. A meeting

Attention fellows! Take oil your hats! That piece of red,
white, and blue cloth passing by is the American flag—the flag
of your country, and the flag which stands for the greatest nation
in the world. And yet you don't seem to respect it enough to
stand at attention with hats off until it has gone by you. But
thank goodness, the reason is that you simply don't think.
Carelessness! That quality which makes failures out of
thousands of us. Oh, fellows! Don't allow us to say that a stu-
dent of Tulsa high is guilty of this offense. Each student of our
high school should be an ideal representative for the school anil
certainly respect for the American flag would he a requirement
for an ideal representative. Think of Captain John Smith, Gen-
eral George W ashington, and President Abraham Lincoln, who
gave their all that our nation might prosper—that our stars and
stripes might be respected.
You were given a great honor by being born an American,
You have the privilege of calling that flag your flag. Dare to
grasp this thought and strive to make yourself more worthy of
being called an American. Remember to respect the flag. 1 ulsa

Have you a hobby? We hope so. Hut we also hope that
you are not spending too much time on it. If you are it will not
remain a hobby very long, but will soon be a cast-off thing.
We know'a boy who is very interested in radio, in fact he
has become so interested that lie does nothing but talk radio con-
inually. Is this all right? We would say no. This takes his mind
oft" of everything else and he will soon become tired of it. We
would not be afraid to wager that he has had more than one
hobby and discarded them in the same way he will soon do radio.
We also know another boy who is greatly interested in photo-
graphv. lie has become very proficient along this line. Yet he
doesn't spend all of his time on this one thing. He treats tins
hobby with respect. This boy will certainly get some place.—
