CREDITS FOR BIBLE
Acting in conjunction with the State
Department of Education, the high
school, through City Superintendent
McLaughlin, has outlined to ministers
and Sunday school teachers of the city
a plan whereby the school msy give
credit for Bible study. It is proposed
that the students who desire to receive
such credit make known their inten
tions to their respective Sunday school
teachers. Where the teachers certify
that students have received a standing
of 85 per cent in attendance and a
scholarship of 85 per cent, the school
will give examinations, the credits to
oe given as a result of examinations.
The examinations will deal only with
English, geography s and historical
points. All denominations will be
privileged to participate, no creed or
dogma beng allowed consideration.
At a recent conference a large num
ber of ministers and teachers met with
Prof. McLaughlin, and the plan was
generally accepted. . It will have to
receive the endorsement of the state
education department, however, before
it is formally inaugurated.
HIGH SCHOOL NOTES
(By Mark Moe)
The girls' basket ball team started
off the season right last Saturday by
defeating Odell on their own floor 14
4. The Odell team, however, was not
used to playing with girls' rules, and
played under a handicap by trying to
conform, to them. Uapt. Keatnce hng
lish Btarred for Odell and Helen Sutt
hoff for Hood River.
The boys' second team went to Odell
and played that team the same night.
They were beaten 177. There was'nt
one of the seven boys who played a
good game. No one knows whether it
was the trip out there which temporar
ily crippled them, or what it was.
They certainly can play a better game
than that, as they have proven while
playing the high school varsity. The
team will pay Odell again in the near
future, and they resolve to bring home
the bacon or quit playing basket ball.
No one starred for either team, and it
was a slow game all around.
The girls who made the trip to Odell
were Capt.Vera Lafferty, Lula Prather,
Ililja Hukari, Helen . Sutthotf, Irma
Boyce, Lorry Allen, Clara Haas and
Miss Lucy Copan. chaperon. The boys
who made the trip were Capt. Wright,
Bentley, Hunt, Moe, Tucker, Spauld
ing, Sthur and A.C. Crews. The party
made the trip in two sleighs, Leon
Bentley driving one and Leonard Miller
the other. Mr. Crews, who has been
coaching the girls, refereed for them
The varsity did not go to The Dalles
last Friday, because the trains were
not running. It is not yet known just
when the games with White Salmon
and The Dalles will be played.
There was no basket ball practice the
early part of the week because the
weight of the snow on the U. B. gym
had already split several rafters. The
side walls were anything but perpendic
ular with tbe floor. As Coach Cohoon
seemed to value the lives of the team
he would not allow them to practice.
That is another reason why the high
school needs a good gym.
Miss Gladyse Armstrong, formerly
of Odell, visited the high school Mon
day. She has been going to a business
college in Portland. She stopped here
on her way to take up a position in the
office of a fruit growers concern in Pen
dleton. While here she even became in
