Weather Chief Willis,
L. Moore proceeds to give the
public such information as he
possesses Regarding the main
cause there seems to be no doubt.
A succession of
areas, producing clear and cold
weather in the far North, have
forced cold currents of air into
areas of low pressure extending
to the far South. High
pressure is common every
year in the North and low at-
pressure in the South,
specially during the spring and
freakish weather is usually due
to their failure to properly
each other. For two
months past high pressure has
had things all its own way; it
has been like the stronger of two
football teams, and all the play-
has been in low pressure's
territory. Hence the cold
extending from Canada to the
Gulf. It is this persistent super-
of high pressure which Mr,
Moore can't explain; he
stands the immediate but not the
remote We only ho;

Again God has seen fit in His
wisdom to visit our school with
death, this time our senior class
was the one to f the victim
in the person of Brother R. S
Evans- In the death of
Evans we have lost one of our
very best members, one who
loved his Sunday school, his
church and all of its institution.
He gave his life to Christ in early
manhood and continued a faith-
member of his to the
last Be served steward
most form the time he joined the
church and did he could for
the furtherance of the cause of
Christ Brother Evans was an
obedient son, a loving husband
and father, a kind and
brother and a true friend.

wife and two little sons our

God he served for comfort for

mother, brothers and sisters we
pray God's blessing upon them,
and may they also live that in
the home beyond the river they
may meet where parting,
row, sin and death are felt and
feared no more, and may have
the consolation that brother
Evans has lost to them a good
name which Solomon says
rather to be chosen than great

because the salaries are higher,

many men still. Some schools
pay the men more than they
pay equally capable women for
the same work, and thereby
maintain a fair balance for men
and women. If the standard is
high enough to attract men, the
women arc gradually displaced.
If it is lower, the men are dis-
placed. For in
any sort of work which women
can do, can be had at wages
which equally capable men will
