Is high school an institution for
pleasure only? Should students go
to high school merely to have a
These statements are indeed
questionable. High school is known
to be an institution of education.
Teachers are hired and money is
spent for the benefit of young peo
ple who want to gain through edu
cation. It is known that the good worker
is always rewarded provided he
does his work satisfactorily.
Primarily, then, it is up to us
people who are students to obtain
an education first and if we do that
in the right way and with the prop
er spirit pleasure-time will come
with our learning.
Explaining traditions and intro
ducing the student body council for
the benefit of new students was the
purpose of the first assembly of the
year held in the assembly hall last
The assembly opened with the
singing of the school song, Hepp
ner Loyalty, by the student body,
accompanied by Miss Leathers at
the piano. Mr. Foord announced
the probability of a debate team or
club to anyone interested in de
bate. Francis Nickerson, student
body president, introduced the
student council, discussed the high
school traditions and appointed
Anabel Turner, Frank Anderson
and Armin Wihlon to serve on the
annual committee for the year.
Matt Kenny and Anabel Turner
sang the theme song of last year's
operetta which was greatly en
joyed by the audience. Mr. Mabee
brought the assembly to a close by
explaining the obligations of the
student body to the football team.
The annual class rush will be
held at 2:30 Thursday afternoon at
the Rodeo grounds. The schedule
is as follows: parade, putting up
goal posts, sophomore stunt, fr6sh
stunt, boys' crab race, girls' dash,
boys' dash, girls' nail driving, boys'
high jump, girls' baseball throw,
boys' sack race, girls' tug of war,
boys' tug of war, girls' relay, boys'
relay, boys' three-legged race, and
Loud Socks Day
Gaily colored socks decked the
legs of most of the members of the
junior class last Friday when they
celebrated the traditional "Loud
Socks Day." Several failed to ap
pear and as a result their punish
ment has been decided upon. For
a penalty they have to contribute
a ten-minute entertainment at the
next assembly. These unfortunates
are Ed Dick, Irvin Pearlberg, How
ard Furlong, Floyd Jones and Billy
Cochell. Johnnie Hanna will assist
them in their act because he broke
the tradition that freshmen wear

The members of the public speak

have proved both interesting and
entertaining to the class. Mr.
Foord has promised a program
from this class to be given in as

the freshmen must use the south
stairs for entering and leaving the
