People are usually judged by their
actions which like everything else
may be good or bad. Although each
one of us is different from the other,
everyone has his or her own pecul
iarities, there are some rules or
customs that we should follow if
we wish to be respected. There are
manners or rules of politeness and
whether we are polite when we grow
older depends on how we start in life.
If we are taught when we are but
small children to say "thank you"
and "please" and the many other
small words and phrases that we
thould use or if we are taught to
give up our chair when an older per
son comes into the room, these little
actions will soon become habits that
we will not outgrow. Do you not
admire a child who does these things?
A child who is courteous is usually
noticed and many remarks are made
to his credit.
Among the other things that we
gain as we increase our habits of
politeness is an ease and grace in
bearing invaluable to us, no matter
what our life's work may be. Every
one enjoys the company of one who
is polite and who seems to know how
to say the right thing at the right
time, and this kind of person is
usually successful in business.
Friday the junior class was invited
to spend the evening at the. home of
Harold .Erwin. The purpose of the
-party was to celebrate the success of
the junior play.
They met at Vaughn's at saven o'
clock, whence they embarked in cars
provided by the junior boys.
Singing and dancing were the main
events of the evening, accompanied by
the excellent music played by the
Erwin orchestra. The class wai sur
prised and pleased to have with them
Miss Miller, Miss Wright, Miss Fishel
and Miss Murray, and considered
themselves very fortunate to have
ao many of the teachers present.
At midngiht an excellent supper
was devoured by the hungry guests.
Shortly afterward the party broke up
and the guests departed for their re

Last week the seniors had charge of
the fest. This week the juniors will
be the leaders.
Mildred Green was absent from
school Monday and Tuesday because
of tonsilitis and rheumatism.
The Booster club girls gave a few
demonstrations of their school spirit
by putting on a program before the
student body, Friday. Several girls
were selected as members of the fac
ulty, and girls in the club were given
parts of different students in the high
school. Each teacher held her class
and questions were asked the differ
ent students. It's really surprising
how much girls know. Velton Owen,
Eva Hiatt, and Joy Erwin gave read
ings, after which the Booster club
orchestra entertained, with Gertrude
Doherty as director. Mlidred Green
showed the assembly what Mr. John
son would be like ten years from
now, Velma Fell and Reta Crawford
impersonated Miss Murray and Miss
Pearson, and Mae and Rosella Doher
ty were Miss Miller and Miss Fishel.
Mr. Burgess was impersonated by
Elizabeth Elder and Joy Erwin imper
sonated Miss Wright.
In all, the girls created a new feel
ing of school spirit with which to pep
up the basketball games coming off

also be a tree, and gifts will be given
out after the program. The teachers
will depart for their homes on Thurs
day to spend their vacation.
Up the steps limped Freda Akers,
Hazel McDaid, and Ruth Furlong. Up
the steps crawled Mae Groshens, Mary
Ritchie and Miss Miller. Next came
Cathrine Bisbee, Evelyn Swindig,
Mary Beamer, and others. A series of
groans were audible because of bruis
es, black and blue spots and stiff mus
cles. Why? Because basketball prac
tice has started.
The girls' turnout was better than
it has been for years and maybe it's
because of the coach, Miss Miller, who
is the best they have had in a good
long while. The girls expect to run
off a series of games in the same man
ner as the boys. They will have their
interclass games, and from these the
coach expects to pick the main team.
The faculty is also planning a team
that will be composed of the Misses
Miller, Fischel, Wright, Murray
high school teachers and the Misses
Thorpe and Fredreckson, grade teach
ers. The high school girls will have the
hall Tuesday. Wednesday and Friday
evenings, while the faculty hat it
Friday nights after dinner.
