For the past few weeks La
Qrande citizens have been con
sidering the ad visibility of add
ing a twelfth grade to our public
school. The students want it;
the needs of the town demand
it. The prevailing sentiment is,
as it should be, in favor of
having it Having a four years
coursse in our high school
would advance directly or in
directly, the interests of every
person engaged in a legitimate
ousn.esa in Lb. Urande or
vicinity. The fact that onr
school would be complete, woud
bring ihe best class of people
into our town, and keep them
here. Any citizen of La Grande
will contend that we are just as
piogressive as the people Uuion,
Pendleton and Baker City, yet
these towns have four year high
schools and students ire fitted
in the senior year to enter the
University of Oregon. La
Qrande graduates must spend at
least one year in preparation be
fore they take up work as fresh
men in the University. If a
twelfth grade is added, it will
cause some to go to college when
they would not have done so
otherwise. For with the advanc
ed work of this year comes the
desire for more knowledge, and
the inspiration to higher
The twelfth grade is of great
benefit to any student, whether
he intends to go to college or to
learn a trade. For the greater
length of time which he spends
in the high school gives him the
opportunity to "brush up" in
the studies which he has neglect
ed for the less important but,
more difficult higher branches
Business men complain, saying
that few of our graduates can
add, and that none of them can
spell. One more year of work
in the high school will make it
possible for each and every
pupil to thoroughly review Spell
ing and Atillur.etic.
As may easily be seen, a
twelfth grade would cost far less
than it would bring the town in
return. In a very short time
our standard of education would
be raised perceptibly. Then
since there is every retteon for
and uouo against it," why not
have a twelfth grade? Let the
Board of directors know that you
are in favor of it, request them
to add it, and you will bave done
that which will benefit your
children, yourselves, and the
comunity at largo.
