i WedtveAdoM Glancing through the Hill Top News, a publication of the Ionia Reformatory there was found ah interesting item on the "Have-a-laff" page. The column relays it to the student. "DEAR PA: Gue$$ what I need mo$t for Chri$tma$? I know you under$tand about cigarette$ and candie$, $o plea$e $end it right away. Be$t wi$he$. You $on." And this is Pa's reply: DEAR SON: Nothing cheers me so much as your letters and kNOwing that you are well. Nothing much happens here, but do write aNOther letter NOw and then. Your Father." Students who wish to secure a ride home on the "share-a-ride program" should leave their names in the general office as soon as possible. Because of the gas rationing and tire problem, students who have cars, as well as faculty members who plan trips, should plan to take passengers to and from school for the Christmas holidays. Nobody should leave Mt. Pleasant without a load. Please contact the office if you have a car or wish a ride. Stag parties are always interesting and it is reported that men often learn much when they get a chance to get together and let down their hair. Last Saturday night, Frank Reger, Clare junior and groom-elect, was guest of honor at a stag affair at the home of Charles Westie. At the same time Reger's bride-to-be, Laura Shelby of Petoskey, and former Life editor, was honored in the home of Mrs. Gladyce Ellis. To get back to the stag party, it was reported that the guest blushed most of the evening. You know how men are. Guests included Jesse Thorpe, Norvall Bovee, George N. Lauer, Harold Pierce, Dr. E. C. Chenoweth, Max Krell, and Charles Westie. Central Michigan Life will sponsor an auction sale of lost articles on January 20 in the lobby at Keeler Union.

Business Firms and College Unite for New Office Training Program "Earn" while you learn" education is being tried for the first time in a state school with the inauguration of a new office training program now in operation at Central Michigan College. ' High school commercial graduates, 16 years old or older, will spend alternate four weeks on the job' in actual work situations and four weeks at the college learning operation of ' modern office equipment pertaining to their particular work. The stepped-up: work schedules of war industries have created a great demand for trained office workers, says J. D. Marcus, coordinator for . the cooperative office training. It has also caused a shortage of office workers among local employers throughout the state. To fill these needs, the Michigan State Board of Education of Control for Vocational Guidance has approved;the new program. Though the scheme is new, Marcus says the inquiries from both employers and prospective . students^. .proves the course will be extremely popular. Cooperating employers with trainees include the Pure Transportation Company, Gloria Hill of Mt. Pleasant and Margaret Rau of Weidman; Simrall Corporation, Kathleen Hampton of Harrison and Alice Frye, of Lansing; City. Treasurer's of fice, Bonnie Roberest of Clare and Alice Tetzlaff of Big Rapids; General Insurance Agency, Marjorie Butler of Mt. • Pleasant; Piatt and Howe, Builders, Delpha Kelly of Shepherd; Isabella Oounty Farmers Grain Company, Marjorie Curtiss of I Shepherd; Isabella County Abstract Office and Potter insurance Agency, !Betty Eyre- of Midland^ and • Ituth Wooster of Reed City. - Lantz Announces Names of February Teachers P.
