Loggers Win
From Forest Grove
On Local Floor
Plans are now being made by
the Girls’ league to raise money
during the second semester. Tues­
day, in the Girls’ league meeting
in Mr. Mills’ room, election of of­
ficers will be held for the second
semester term.
Other beneficial work is being
done by the girls, including clean­
up work in the girls’ rest room
and the furnishing of the teach­
ers’ rest room.

by the tight checking of both
teams throughout the game.

opened the scoring in the start­

The Columbians smothered the

Loggers Are to
Meet St. Helens
Here January 18
The Vernonia Loggers will en-
gage the St. Helens Lions in the
first conference game to be play­
ed on the local floor today.
The Lions were defeated by
Clatskanie 12 to 8 the previous
week, and were unable to score
a field goal the first half. Verno­
nia lost to Forest Grove and Rai­
nier but defes<ted Forest. Grove
in a return game Saturday.
The St. Helens team has
trounced Grant and Roosevelt of
Portland; therefore the Loggers
will have a busy evening against
such a strong foe. The Vernonia
hoopsters are ready to avenge
last year’s defeat, and will give
plenty of action for the benefit
of the fans.

crowd at the basketball game last

We students have decided to or-
ganize an S. P. C. T. (Society for
the Prevention of Cruelty to
Teachers). Our first step toward
a national teachers’ Utopia will
be the abolition of tests. Mr. Mc­
Crae always looks so sad and
depressed and apologizes for half
the period when he is forced to
give us a test. And Miss Hughes
suffers untold agonies with her
arm from writing tests on the
board. Students, shall this terrible
condition continue to exist? Shall
this blot remain on the fair name
of Vernonia high school? No! A
thousand times no! On then to
our goal—the abolition of tests
(for our dear teachers’ sake).

the students are working for
