The Most fun a baby soul can have comes from watching. The most
fun a young soul can have comes from doing. And the most fun an old
soul can have doesn't come from anything. Not that old souls aren't
the first to the playground, dance floor, or hoedown, but that they
could have fun anywhere, anytime, like right here and now. Crazy
like a fox.

Do you have an old instrument, a sax or a trumpet collecting dust
in your attic or basement? If so, the Bethel Music Department is
asking you to consider donating it. Every year there are students
who want to play an instrument but cannot afford to rent or
purchase one. When an instrument is donated it is sent to Ellis
Music where it is made ready for playing and then given to a child.
If you have such an instrument and would like to help, please
contact Band Director Carrie Kohl at 234-9966, extension 229.
Riddle Solution: 178. The easiest way to think about this is that
Kate had to have the highest guess at 186, meaning there were 180
marbles in the jar. Two under (Hank's guess) would be 178.
