Go thou thy way, and I go mine
Apart, yet not afar;
Only a thin veil hangs between
The pathways where we are;
And God keep watch 'tween thee and me.
This is my prayer.
He looks thy way, He looketh mine,
And keeps us near.
I know not where thy road may lie,
Or which way mine will be;
If mine will lead through parching sands,
And thine beside the sea;
Yet God keeps watch 'tween thee and me,
So never fear,
He holds thy hand, He claspeth mine,
And keeps us near.
Should wealth and fame perchance be thine,
And me lot lowly be,
Or you be sad and sorrowful,
And glory be for me,
Y et God keep watch 'tween thee and me,
Both be His care.
One arm round thee and one 'round me
Will keep us near.
I sigh sometimes to see thy face,
But since this may not be,
I leave thee to the care of Him
Who cares for thee and me.
"I'll keep both beneath my wings."
This comforts, dear,
One wing o'er thee and one o'er me,
Sc we are near.
And though our paths be separate,
And thy way is not mine;
Y et, coming to the mercy-seat,
My soul will meet with thine,
And God keep watch 'tween thee and me,
I'll whisper there;
He blesseth thee, He blesseth me,
And we are near.

The Same Old Wan
The Board of Education of the
Norman school district has made no
"decree" that boy students must wear
distinctive clothing and girl? some
simple costume the covins school
year. Such a "decree" is, they think,
beyond their jurisdiction as a >)oard,
and could not be enforced however
much they might favor the movement.
The only thin* they could do would be
to "suggest" some such a move, and
they are divided in sentiment as to
even making such a suggestion. Prob-
ably they will put it up to the
mothers and fathers themselves, who
in fact, have the final sayso. The
I ranscript finds but little sentiment
in favor of the move, as the clothing
of the children is in many cases hand
ed down from Jan#- to Mary and from
John to Charlie, and besides, parents
do not care to be dictated to as to
'. hat they or their children shall or
shall not wear. We'll probably go
along the same old way, dressing as
we please and E -.'ording to ou own
—Interesting Relic: Comrade Geo.
DeLong, now commander of Albert
Carter Post (5. A. R., has an interest-
ing relic in the shape of a diary he
kept in Andersonville Prison away
back in 18G4. He ran across it a few
days ago among his papers and has
been busy re-reading it and recalling
many of the incidents it brings to his
mind. One inrident of unusual im-
portance is the election held for
President on Nov. 4, 1864, in which
Abraham Lincoln and Geo. B. Mc-
Clellan were the contestants, and
every occurrence of that memorable
day comes back to him. Mis company
(the prisoners were divided into com
panics) voted 47 for Lincoln and 14
for IVlcClellan, and the vote of the
whole prison was in about the same
proportion. He recalls, too, that the
Confeds were not overly pleased with
the vote, as they thought the soldiers
would vote for MeClellan. Mr. DeLong
was only in Andersonville thirty days,
when he and some fifty other prison
ers were exchanged.
On Thursday night, May 31, 1917,
the people of Norman will have the
pleasure of seeing one of the best
plays ever presented by a high school

Being Karnest. The play is full of
laughs and interesting situations, and
critics class it with our best modern

talented students of N. H. S., and de-
