The 7th and 8th grades held a
Student Body meeting recently to
see about a gymnasium. W e can
get the hall for $10 a month. The
high school is anxious to go in with
us and we expect to have fine
times. A fte r cleaning thoroughly
and installing the gymnasium apa-
ratus, stove, etc.,we will have a
fairly presentable gym. By organ­
izing basket hall teams and chal-
enging- surrounding teams, we in
one way hope to prove to some
skeptics that Falls City is not alto­
gether "behind the times."

We all start out in life from Zero mark. It is uphill all
the way. The higher we go the more we are looked
up to. The man who attains success must take him- *
self seriously, look to his own interests and conserve
his strength, wealth and ability. Many people are
depositing their money with this bank, paying by

Treval Powers talked to the
junior high school Friday about
tne Y. N. C.A. work done all over
the world. His talk was interest­
ing land impressive. Every boy
and girl was moved by the des
cription of trench life that they
were anxious to give what they
could to help on the good work.
As a result several pledge cards
were signed.
Among those absent during the
past week are Ruth Haven, Ida
Buell and Esther Lee.
