OUR TROPHY CASE—
SHALL WE MOVE IT?
Our trophy case is at present situated at the entrance to
the gymnasium and the question has arisen as to how many
persons notice it in its present location enough to Be thoroughly
acquainted with the contents.
During the basketball season, the case undoubtedly comes
in for a certain amount of observation, but after the season
is over, students, faculty and school patrons seldom pass
through that part of our building.
Moving the trophy case near the main entrance of the
school was thought best by the majority of students that the
Journalism class interviewed, to determine what others
thought on the subject.
Most students pass through the hall opposite the front
entrance of the building every day. Many patrons and other
adult citizens enter the building at the front door when attend
ing night classes, public entertainments and other affairs held
in the high school building, and if thecase were located near
this, entrance, they would have opportunities that they do not
have now, of learning through observation of the trophies what
attainments the high school students have reached along the
lines of inter-school activity.
If it is important to earn these cups, it must be important
that everyone know about them. Many students interviewed
.mreioned the fact that most other schools .have their trophies

Shouldn’t Oregon City follow this example?
