subjects to be discussed will be, "Edu

O. M. Elliott of the Salem schools, will
speak from the viewpoint of the public
schools, and President Carl Gregg Dnn
ey, of the Willamette, will express his
views, from the viewpoint of
the university. "Rally Day in School

program is planned for tho evening of
October 10. On the 17th, an illustrated
lecture on Germany, with 50 stercopti

and the Marseilles."
The enrollment of pupils attending
the Snlem high school at the end of tho
first two weeks is 579, compared to (52ti
of one year ago. Although this is 47
less, the attendance yearly shows an in
crease for these upper grades, as no
class has entered from a grammar
school, nnd 100 were graduated last
spring. In other words, with 100 pupils
going out of th high school and none
coming in, there are only 47 less, show
ing an actual increase this year of 53.
One remarkable feature of this total
number, is that this year there are 278
boys, compared to 275 one yenr ago,
although the total number enrolled is
47 less than a year ngo. This shows
nn increased percentage in the number !
of boys attending the school. j
