Senior news

It is generally known about the school that the seniors received their rings and pins on Thanksgiving Day. Since the second term examination it is not so generally known that they will receive their diplomas in June.

At a recent meeting of the senior class, the members decided to conduct, once a week, a class in parliamentary law, instead of the freefor all discussion which they have heretofore had.

Impersonations of the high school faculty were given in chapel last week by six members of the senior class. It is the opinion of the student body that Orell Fields and Karl Day should have names changed, and that Beulah Fields will accept Miss Colyer’s position if she should resign.

Average attendance

We have enrolled in high school this year 89 girls and 85 boys, making a total of 174. For the first month the average attendance was 167, second month 162, third month 159. This is a very good average, but let’s bring it up by everyone coming on time and coming every day.
