SUPER MEETING 7 P.M. THE HAND SHAKE JOHN T. FRIEND, EDITOR Published Weekly By The Polygon Club Vol. 1 Portsmouth, Va., September 20, 1937 No. 28

SUPER MEETING Tomorrow night will start another nine months of super meetings, one club will have the pleasure of hearing Dr. Presser, professor at the Norfolk Division of William and Mary College. Dr. Presser has been with us before so those members who were presetn then know the treat that is in store for them. And those who did not hear him on his first visit should make and effeort to be present tomorrow night. Don't forget, the meeting opens at 7 o'clock sharp.

I suppose the wives of Polygon members, also, will be glad to hear that the super meeting nights have started again. It will give them at least one free night each month.

MORE BOWLING We do not seem to be able to hear anythign definite about the bowling team. There will be a meeting of the Portsmouth Duck Pin Association Wednesday, September 22, 1937. Little George said he would not be able to represent the Polygon Club but I think he has made arrangements for some one else to be there. From a personal standpoint it seems to me that the Polygons will be able to put a team on both alleys. Then every body will be satisfied.

NEWS I was unable to get in touch with either John Jackson, Elwood Major, or Eddie Talbot for advanced news on their trip. But I am sure that they will have plenty to tell us (about some pretty little thing). My bet is that she is that waitress in that cafe. And your bet? Another member, Monrie Sykoe, is away on a trip. This is a strictly business trip.

IF---- If you can keep you head when all about you Are losing theirs and blaming it on you, If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you, But make allowance for their doubting too; If you can wait and not be tired by waiting, Or being lied about, don't deal in lies, Or being hated, don't give way to hating, And yet don't look to good, nor talk too wise:

If you can dream and not make dreams your master; If you can think, and not make thoughts your aim; If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster And treat those two imposters just the same; If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools, Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken, And swoop and build 'em up with worn out tools: Rudyard Kipling (continued) The last two verses of "IF" will be printed next week.



The object of the Polygon Club is to encourage and promote service, health, fellowship, education and progress among the members and in the community in an atmosphere of Christian living.
