MAY 5, 1932

The Alumni Association of the Glasgow High School, with 33 members present, recently discussed the unfortunate conditions which will exist when the City Library is moved from the School Library, leaving the School Library without enough books to give the High School a first class rating. A plan was adopted in which all alumni are asked to contribute any books they may have, such as text books used in college, classics, fiction, and any other books for which they have no immediate need.  The cooperation of all graduates (as well as others in the com- munity) is urgently solicited.

Floyd Forrest had the misfortune of getting the large bone in his left leg broken Friday afternoon when he was thrown from the bed of a truck when its driver turned the corner too quickly at Goodman Bros.  Floyd was able to grab hold of the body of the truck as he went over the side and held on.  In doing so, he probably saved his life as he was dragged to the Depot.  After having the injured member properly attended to, he was taken to his home at Lecta, where he will be taking a rest for several weeks.  Floyd recently received his government license to operate a ham radio and will be glad for any radio fan to call him at W9CMH, using the Morse code..
