HIGH SCHOOL NOTES
By Alice Anient
The usual number of students have
returned after the Christmas holi
days, and brilliantly colored ribbons,
socks and ties are being displayed.
The tour days of vacation following
Christmas day gave many a chance
to recover from the effects of too
much Christmas. However, there
was not the slight regret expressed
among the students, as "Christmas
comes but once a year."
Friday mornlnsf it was found that
some of the pipes tu the high school
building were burst, and, there was
quite a bit of water running around
loose on the stairways and floors.
While Superintendent Iniel was rush
ing the' plumbers to the scene, the
principal. Miss Bridges, was mopping
up the water where it seemed to be
the worst. The plumber smilingly
appeared on the scene, and the break
in the pipes was soon mended.
On New Year's day the students
came to high school, as usual, but
were dismissed early in the after
noon. This came as a surprise, and
the chance to go out into the clear
air and bright sunshine was greatly
The girls of the high school, under
the direction of Mrs. Gunnel), are
taking the fundamental steps In
aesthetic and gymnastic dancing.
The exercises are now being given
in the high school assembly room,
but when spring arrives, there will
be a field prepared outside, and they
will be taken there. The girls are
taking a lively interest in the work,
and the effect of their efforts are
showing already. These exercises
are very beneficial as well as fanci
ful, and will have an excellent and
lasting effect on the poise and car
riage of the participants. Mrs. Gan
nell is putting in her best efforts,
and this fact alone Is enough to in
sure the success of the drill.
The boys have lately been taking
their military drill under the direc
tion of Lieutenant Williams, and
have been getting it Just as it is
given at the army camps. The boys
are drilling with wooden guns now.
Not very dangerous, but effective
when it comes to drilling. Lieuten
ant Williams has been reviewing
them on the rudiments of military
drill, and has been emphasizing the
military bearing. Wig-wagging is
also being taken up.
