(Stafford Hansell)
A good reputation is hard to get
but not so hard to lose. Nothing will
gain an honorable reputation but a
long period of honorable deeds. One
misstep and it is all gone for naught.
One bad action over-balances that
long period affair and honest action.
Yet this is only fair; because when an
individual does not live up to the
trust placed in him on one occasion, it
is possible that he may fail this
trust at another time. That one blot
is always pointed out and never for
gotten. A boy might be a star on
an athletic team and play outstand
ingly in nearly every game, but if
he fails in one game, his coach could
not place trust in him again. His
reputation for steadiness has been
broken and for several years the fans
would point him out for his misplay
in that one game. . His reputation,
built up by long effort, has been lost
in one game.
A man who owns a Business, which
is outstanding for its fair dealings
has an enviable reputation, but if he
goes back on his policy and is con
nected with some unscrupulous deal
ing, his good reputation of other
years is forgotten. A good reputa
tion broken is rarely attained again,
for few people have the determination
to build up a reputation after they
have lost one.
Money lost can be gained again,
but a reputation is priceless. A per
son should carefully guard his reputa
tion. He should regard the reputa
tion of another as something not to
be played with and should never say
anything that will directly or indirect
ly lead to ruining another's reputa
tion, unless he is positive and has
evidence of his guilt.
, - ; .; Weekly Assembly
The high school students hope to
have a short assembly period once
each week except during examination
weeks. Probably once each month a
longer assembly period will be ar
ranged for and a more comprehensive
program will be arranged. It is hop
ed that each class will take over the
responsibility for a special assembly
program during the school year.
Parents will be invited to attend
these assemblies.
School Orchestra
"Is there enough interest in music
to make it possible to develop a high
school orchestra?" This was the ques
tion discussed at the last assembly
period. The students are all interest
ed in vocal music. But a balanced
high school program requires an
orchestra or band. It was suggested
that the Conn band instrument people
cooperate with schools that wish to
organize orchestras or bands and fur
nish expert instruction to get them
going. There is no question but that
Athena High school needs an orches
tra. And the hope was expressed
that something might be done to de
velop one in the near future.

The Heating Plant
The school heatim? olant is working
very well these cool mornings. The
building is pleasantly warmea by tne
time school takes ud. The automatic
stokers are controlled by a thermo
stat that shuts them down wnen ine
temnerature reaches 70 in the rooms.
and kicks them into action again when
the temperature reaches bo. aacii
room in enuinned with an individual
thermostat so the teacher can control
the temperature of the room by mix
ins' more or less cold air with the air
stream that is forced into the room.
Pure air is thus furnished every
room by forced fan draft.
Subject Classes

Student Body
Planting a lawn on the school
ground to replace the cinders and to

will be decided on in the future.
