Another year, another semester,
and another chance to make good.
Are we going to take advantage of
this chance or just pass it by? Many
of us have failed to do our best
during the past semester. We have
let things come and go as they
might. We have not done our part
toward making our school better.
If we intend to be proud of our
school, we will have to do our part
When we have finished school, we
should like to look back and be
proud of our school days, because
we were one of the bolts that held
the machine together. If we are one
of the bolts, we can't be loose. We
must keep to our standard and do
our best If the bolts become loose,
the machine cannot hold together.
If we do not do our best, what will
become of the school?
This new semester gives us an
other chance to be better students,
and make our school a better one.
Let us make use of this chance by
starting out the new semester right
Let us do our best in keeping our
work up, in getting our assignments
and In supporting our school. We
cannot be the beat in the class per
haps; but we can do as the poet,
Douglas Mallach, advises:
"If you cant be a highway, then
just be a trail,
If you can't be the sun, be a star;
It isn't by size that you win, or
Be the best of whatever you are."
The semester examinations are
to be given on Thursday and Fri
day of next week. The examinations
for the morning1 classes will be giv
en on Thursday and the afternoon
classes on Friday. Any student
getting the grade of 3- or above will
be exempted from the examinations
with the exception of those who
have three or more demerits.

fundamentals of basketball. The
twelve boys scoring highest on this
test, general Improvement and con

Irish Play Close One
Led by McCulloch, a sharpahoot
ing guard, the Condon hoopsters
came out on top of a thrilling 20-18
score against the Fighting Irish.
Displaying much improvement and
a return of fighting spirit the local
lads turned on a last quarter rally
that brought the crowd to its feet,
but just fell short of the necessary
margin for victory. It is hoped that
improved team work and shooting
will be evidenced for the next home
game Friday, when the Arlington
Honkers come to the local court

question that has been chosen by

for debating competition. This
question is: "Resolved, that the

importance to everyona There are
many people who haven't sufficient
funds for medical care they require.

place in the class, the students have
been divided into teams. Half of
them are affirmative and the other
half negative. It is expected that
before the end of the next semester

Is your child reluctant to do his homework?
If he is, the fault may be with the lighting under
which he works. For poor lighting makes his
homework unnecessarily difficult. It increases
eyestrain and fatigue, which eventually may re
sult in defective vision.
The only way to be certain about your lighting
is to have it checked with a sight meter. Then
you will know not only how much light you have
now, but also how much you should have for
every type of visual task. Ask our nearest office
to have one of our home lighting experts call at
your home and make this sight meter test. Let our
expert advise you about your lamps, too, and tell
you more about the new sight-saving I.E.S.
lamps. This service is given without charge or
obligation. Please phone or write for it today.
