(Emery Rogers) -A
new gymnasium is needed for the
high school. There is absolutely no
doubt about it. AO the neighboring
schools hare good, full size gym
nasiums. The Athena gymnasium not only is
under size but is a menace to the
safety of the participants who play
in games upon that floor. The walU
are the out-of-bound, and it is not
an unusual sight to see a player
thrown against the walls. Some day
a player will be hurt very seriously
as a result of this. The low ceiling
and email size of the gym handicap
the home team players when playing
on a full size floor, as well as prov
ing very cumbersome to outside play
ers playing here.
Of course the students could get
along with the present gymnasium
for a few more years but sooner or
later they will rave to have an up-to-date
gym. Why not build one
soon? Then the students can be en
joying it as soon as possible.! There
is lots of school ground to build upon
and the old gym could be put to good
use by the grade students.

" Girls League
The social committee of the Girls
League are sponsoring a St Patrick
Day party to be given today. The
refreshments and games have been
planned to carry out the St Patrick's
Day motif. The girls expect to have
a "snappy good" time.
The Athena boys entered the dis
trict tournament at Pendleton Fri
day and played their first game with
Mae Hi and were defeated 29-20. This
The boys went on the floor against
Mae Hi with the intent to rive all
they bad whether they won or lost
The game was fast but both teams
seemed unable to get organized and
also found it hard to make their
shots count , , ,
The boys, showed up more on the
defense than on the offense but
nevertheless played a good, , close,
game. Mac Hi was leading by the
score of 12-11 at the end of
the first half. The lait half was
about the same as the first half but
the boys probably checked a trifle
Eldon Myrick played a wonderful
game and besides being high point
man for Athena made the all-star
team which was chosen by the ref
eree. This was Myrkk's last bas
ketball game which he will play for '
the Athena high school but he will not
be forgotten by the student body be-)
Last Friday the second-fifth grades
entertained the third-fourth grades.
The reason for the party was the
result or tne recent spelling contest
in which the second-fifth lost The
menu consisted of milk, cake, sand
wiches and pickles. An excellent
