The subject that's called chemistry
Is not so very dry
As acids, salts, and bases

And first aid dressing can.
Now, buckle up, dear students,
And read this once again,
As Chem has made us realize
What suckers we have been.

FLOOD LIGHTS AID
J. C. NIGHT CLASSES
No more will parked automobiles
about H. J. C. be in danger of being
stripped of their accessories and
drained of their gasoline.
No longer will departing students
grope their way in darkness to cars
and busses. t
Large flood rights have been placed
about the front of the building in such
a manner that they throw their light
about the building, grounds, and driveways.
Many students have expressed satisfaction over the improvement
everyone was left with a newer and
greater inspiration for the club work.
This club is the first library club formed in Junior College. If it proves a
success the work will be carried on
