Gahan I attended the annual Illinois Secondary School Principals As¬ sociation last week on the Univer¬ sity of Illinois campus. This was the best one ever. These were a number of highlights of the two da> conference: A very inspiring educational speech by Rev. Bob Richards, a former Olympic pole valuter; the furnishing of diner music on the Hammond Electric Organ by my wife's brother Levin Cummins, ot whose home I stayed while on campus. (Mr. CTummins plays nightly during the dinner hour at the Urbana Lincoln Ho¬ tel and he also teaches music at t h e Champaign Hammond Stu¬ dios.) Another important high¬ light of the conference was a very informative talk by one of the University's trustees, Mr. Irving Dilliard, an educator, writer, and outstanding statesman. His talk was entitled "If I Were a School Administrator." Other sessions dealt with school trends, curriculum, discipline, evaluations, but most emphasis was placed upon the present day obstacles facing administrators of schools throughout the state. 'Huntley' By Frances L. Garllefo There's a little town of Huntley In the Valley of the Fox Where the women make good apple pies and bake them around the clocks. Such a mixture of the races Seldom seen in one small spot! There are Dutchmen, Swedes, and Irish And many more mixed in the pot! They lo\-ed their homelands dearly When they csime to this land's shore But soon as they got acquainted Sure. they loved our "Hunt¬ ley" more. For we're a freedom loving people. We don't want the bombs to fall. But if our boys are needed They will heed their country's call! We have three lovely churches We can show you all with pride. They have one thought in common They are all on Our Lord's side. CONTINIJICD 0> FAtJE 4 Roast Beef Din. at Cong. Cb.
