AFTER RECESS, DIDST SUPT D C ARNOLD (WHO HAS A VERY SORE HAND) SPOKE OF THE WORK OF THE POTATOE CLUB BOYS.  THE BOYS WERE PRESENT AND THE POTATOES WERE ON EXHIBITION IN THE SCHOOL ROOM. THIS IS THE FIRST EXHIBIT OF THE KIND IN THE DISTRICT AND THE BOYS TAKING PART AND THEIR PARENTS MAY JUSTLY FEEL PROUD OF THE EVENT.  SUPT WHITE ACTED AS JUDGE WALTER AND WYLE, TWIN BROTHERS OF EMORYVILLE SCHOOL, THIRD PRIZE; CARL RODERCK OF SCHELL SCHOOL, 4TH PRIZE.  THE PRIZES WERE CASH BEGINNING AT $2.50 AND SCALING DOWN.  THE HEARTY ROUNDS OF APPLAUSE SHOWED THAT THE  AUDIENCE WAS HEART AND SOUL WITH THE POTATOE CLUB BOYS.  MR THRUSH THEN BEGAN A RAPID FIRE ON THE ROUND TABLE TOPICS, SUPT WHITE, PRINCIPAL ZEIL, WM E ROGERS, ARTHUR FULTZ, GEORGE LUDWIG, MISS STELL WAGONER OF KEYSER, MARGARET BAIRD, FLORENCE KINKEAD AND OTHERS TOOK PART.
