Dr. O. B. Miles was elected school
physician at the meeting of the school
board of directors. The vote was by
ballot and resulted in Dr. Miles re
ceiving three votes, Dr. C. E. Cashatt
one, and Dr. R. T. Mclntirc, one vote.
According to the action of the board
several months ago when the matter of
school physician was under discussion,
the salary will bo "15 a month.
The MeKinley school building was
formally accepted from tho contractors,
Snook & Travel-, and tho final payment
of $S1S ordered. Tho total cost of the
building is $22,503. The lot cost r,000.
Final acceptance of the stage was also
made by the board and the contractor
L. C. Dennison was ordered paid the
amount of $367..'j0.
Bids for tho extension of the two fire
escapes of tho High school building
were received, one for $300 and the
other $275. Tho Hoard was rather in
clined to think the figures excessive,
especially as the present fire escapes
extend to within 12 feet of the ground.
Tho High school student body ad
dressed a letter to tho board express
ing regrets that the ventilating belt had
been stolen, but as tho belt Una been
later returned, the matter was dropped.
Tho Snikpoh dramatic society also
wrote a few nice things to the board,
expressing their delight with the new
stago in the auditorium. The request
for stage scenery, which included an out
door sceno nnd flys, a parlor scene,
street scene, garden scene and also a
front curtain and a stereoptienn screen
was not noted upon.
The uso of the auditorium for outside
shows and entertainments is not especi
ally favored by the board. A request
hail been made from one of tho town
organizations for the' use of the stage
and auditorium, for which a charge
would be made. The matter of as to
whether tho school auditorium will be
open for entertainments other than
thoso of tho schools will bo taken up
at the next meeting of the board.
A cafeteria may bo established in the
high school, under the management of
Miss Bertha Edwards aud the girls of
tho domestic science course. While no
definite action was taken, yet it was
referred to the committee on supplies,
Hnrley O. White and E. T. Barnes,
with power to act. As this committee
is inclined to favor tho cafeteria idea
for non lunches, the chances aro that
with tho beginning of the next sem
ester, the cafeteria plan will be tried
out. , . . .
Tho girls of the three junior high
schools in the domestic science depart
ments aro in need of clocks in order
that thev may properly time their cook
ing. This was also referred to the
supplies committee with power to act.
The question ns to how long the high
...hnnl lmiUillff RllOllld be OUCH of CVCI1-
ings for the various entertainments nnd
school activities was up for general
discussion. The general opinion was
that lights should be out at least by
10:15 0r 10:30 o'clock, unless a special
entertainment was on. At their next
meeting the board will again take up
tho question of the closing hour for
evening rehearsals or entertainments.
In order to have one party personally
responsible for the custody of the city
hall, in ordinance will lie introduced
at the session ot mo en,y emim-n

custodian. All city
uroiiertv in the
hall, not under the jurisdiction of soiuo
other city official, will be plnoed in
care of the recorder and he will have
nthority to keen the hull in good con
dition and employ a janitor.
After several weeks of steady and
consistent practice, the basketball

"The Super man" will he the theme
for discussion at the Social Service
meeting at the Unitarian church. Sun
day evening. Whilo the ideal of the
super-ninn is no doubt the great inspira
tion in the philosophy of Friedrich
Nietzsche, the Oermnii philosopher, yet
it is by no means original with that
radical thinker, but forms tho substrat
um of all philosophy and is the very
light o ft lie promise of the philosophical
teachings -ot Jesus, ns well ns other
great leaders. The writings of Nietzsche
are being more extensively read and
tho interest in this great question of
man's higher spiritual possibilities is
becoming moro insistent and demanding
study and investigation. Bring your
