An unidentifled round object I brought to the school last week I caused considerable speculation ] and not & little consternation since all manner of weird contraptions Scholarship Tests Given from flying saucers to rockets are presently cluttering up outer space and might land anywhere. Diverse opinions were expressed as to the nature of the thing which ranged all the way from Maa'tian space vehicle to an ICBM warhead and even a Texas orange as it was bright orange in color and more than 18 inches in diameter. TO SETTLE THE arguments, the mystmT object, was taken to Mr. Hogben of the science depart- ment who readily made indentifi- cation and confessed that he had a hand in its development and manu- facture. Everyone breathed easier when he explained it was harm- less,, contained no explosives and would serve a difinite function in his physical education program. The object, Mr. Hogben said, is nothing more lethal than a rolling globe such as used by clowns, acro- bats and trained elephants in cir- cuses. If one is a little reckless, ad- venturous, and has a good sense of balance he may acquire the skill to walk on one• This ball was made at small ex-. pense by using an obsolete world globe and covering it with several thicknesses Of fiberglass such as is used in boat manufacture. It was then coated with a plastic compound in which was mixed ground grardte which gives it an orange skin effect and prevents slipping when in use. Mr. Hogben says the rolling globe is extremely durable and has sufficient strength to support an elephant and he would be glad to prove its durability except for the local elephant shortage. If resid- ents of this area will make a search of their garages, woodsheds or attics and fined an elephant, Mr. Hogben would appreciate theh" sending it over to school so he may train it for a demonstration. PARCHMENT AND SCROLL By Shirlee Murphy, Librarian A number of new titles were ad- ded last week. "The War Called Peace" by Har- ry and Bonaro Overstreet is a book about Khrushchev, "the man, his purposes and his tactics" for the senior high students. The intelTnediate grades will want to read Slater Brown's "Eth- an Allen and the Green Mountain Boys." The historical setting of "The Vikings" by Elizabeth Jaaleway tells of Eric the Red and Leif Ericsson and their dream of set- ting foot on the "land beyond the Western sea." "The Enemy is Fire," the his- tory of forest protection in the big timber country by Charles S. Co' wan is the latest gift from the Simpson Timber Co. The many photographs of Washington and personalities of the timber court- cry make this an interesting as- count. In order to assure each student a working knowledge Of the It-" brary and the skills necessary to use library materials, a program is under way for grades 7 through 12. In addition to fihnstrips and a demonstrated lecture the group is being given assigned reading on the subject with a quiz and a practical test to follow. Individual help is possible with a small group; therefore the student will run down information through the cmd catalog to the shelves under a watchful eye. This exercise isbe- ing correlated with the English program. THE BOOK RETURN is :piled high.
