School to Have Two May Poles
Two May dances are scheduled for
May first, instead of the customary
one, which was planned to be featur
ed at the first of the program. The
small children, under the supervision
of Miss Hickson are to have a May
Pole dance as well as those of the
high school and upper classes, so that
they may be allowed to participate also
in the glories and activities of May.
The upperclassmen have learned the
fundamentals and it is now for them
to perfect the dance to the best of their
ability. The exercises of the smnll.r
scholars will be different from the ex
ercises of the upper grades. Their
costuming and dances will also be car
ried out on a different Arrangement.
Mothers of the smaller scholars will
co-operate with the teachers in mak
ing the costumes for the occasion.

Brief Review of Week's News Events
Arlington Hi. Beats Boardman Hi.
The game at Arlington last Friday
produced the usual nuiiibe rof thrills
and was enjoyed by the crowd that
witnessed it. The Iioardman boys got
off to a poor star! and were behind
five to one at the end of the seventh.
In the first half of the eighth. Board
man a tapped on the gas and scored
four runs, which lied the score. In
the first half of (be eighth, three more
runs gave Iioardman the command
ing lead of eight to five. In the last
half of the ninth, the trouble started.
It looked like easy going, with Carl
Avers pitching wonderful ball, but
the Arlington boys rallied to their
colors and drove in four runs. Which
though hard earned, were due primar
ily to three costly errors on the part
of an many of tin' Boardman players.
The final score was nine to eight.
