BUSINESS MEETING THE HAND SHAKE JOHN FRIEND, EDITOR Published Weekly By The Polygon Club Vol. 1 Portsmouth, Va., September 27, 1937 No. 29

TICKETS It has been requested by Bill Pace, Chairman of the Ticket Committee for the Fall Festival, that all people turn in money that they have received to date for tickets. He also wants a report on the number of tickets that you have promises for. There will be a list of prospect buyers to be turned over to different members to work on. Bill is making a special offer to any member selling ten tickets. For each group of ten tickets that you sell, Bill will present you with a free ticket. There is no limit to the amount to be given away; sell a hundred and Bill will gladly give you ten free tickets.

DANCE The Club has had the question of the Fall (or winter) social brought before them on several occasions, but the committee is still in the dark as to exactly what the Club wants. Most of the members have been approached on the subject and have expressed their feelings. Although the committee needs the feelings of the Club as a whole. They have made connection with orchestras and suitable places. They will be able to give you open dates of places and orchestras and prices of each tomorrow night. Think this over because the committee is going to call for an open discussion tomorrow night, as they would like to start work as soon as possible to get the choice of place and orch.

PUBLIC SERVICE AWARD With the other important things coming up tomorrow, the public service award committee is going to offer a proposal. They are very anxious for every member to be present. The Public Service Award is only given once a year, so everyone should be present to express his opinion. This is also one of the most important activities of the Club and a lot of thought should be given to it by the Club. The committee has already spent a lot of the time on the subject.

IF (Continued) If you can make one heap of all you winnings And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss, And lose, and start again at your beginnings And never breathe a word about your loss; If you can forced you heart and nerve and sinew To serve your turn long after they are gone, And so hold on when there is nothing in you Except the will which says to then "Hold on!"

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue Or walk with kings-nor lose the common touch, If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you, If all men count with you, but none too much; If you can fill the unforgiving minute With sixty seconds worth of distance run, Yours is the earth and everything that's in it, And -- which is more -- you'll be a man, my son:

   -- Rudyard Kipling
