On Monday morning Mr. Snesrud gave a talk in commemoration of Lincoln&apos;s birthday. He discussed some i of his main characteristics such as] concentration, self-respect, respect for I the rights of others and efficient work l and he showed us in what ways we could apply them to our school work. The Junior high schools gave the flag salute and sang the "Star Span- glecl Banner" afterward. Mildred Waldo has returned to hool after an absence of six weeks. The high school assembly room floor seemed to be unusually slippdry Monday morning. No serious casual- ties were reported however. The debate on the "Open and Closed Shop" in the Public Speaking Class Friday was won by the affirmative. The winners were presented with a box of candy. Being lighter than air, it has been the custom to collect ammonia gas by the upward displacement of air in the laboratory; but it seems some in- gmtious chemistry students on Mon- day endeavored to collect the gas by downward displacement. Despite their worthy efforts however, the gas sim- ply wouldn't stay in the test tube. Edwin Carlson was absent the past week on account of illness. The Freshman General Science classes axe making observations of the sky this week.

Johnson Furniture Company PAGE 2 I I SCHOOL NOTES I This year there is to be a Mother- f Daughter banquet and it comes next 1 Wednesday, February 22, in the High School gymnasium. The Senior Class will present the play, "All On Account of Polly," February 24 at the Orpheum theatre. This will be a good play and every- one should see it. On Monday morning Mr. Snesrud gave a talk in commemoration of Lincoln's birthday. He discussed some i of his main characteristics such as] concentration, self-respect, respect for I the rights of others and efficient work l and he showed us in what ways we could apply them to our school work. The Junior high schools gave the flag salute and sang the "Star Span- glecl Banner" afterward. Mildred Waldo has returned to hool after an absence of six weeks. The high school assembly room floor seemed to be unusually slippdry Monday morning. No serious casual- ties were reported however. The debate on the "Open and Closed Shop" in the Public Speaking Class Friday was won by the affirmative. The winners were presented with a box of candy. Being lighter than air, it has been the custom to collect ammonia gas by the upward displacement of air in the laboratory; but it seems some in- gmtious chemistry students on Mon- day endeavored to collect the gas by downward displacement. Despite their worthy efforts however, the gas sim- ply wouldn't stay in the test tube. Edwin Carlson was absent the past week on account of illness. The Freshman General Science classes axe making observations of the sky this week. Charlotte Reynolds has returned to _l after an absence of three weel, The -venth and Eighth grade lit- r la,s had the opportunity of reading au article printed in the New York Herald dated April 15, 1865, wllh gave an account of Lincoln's death and also a letter telling of the eol of Lincoln. The let- ter also told of Lee's surrender at Richmond. Division A and B of the Camp Fire Girls had a joint meeting in the li- Irraary Friday evening at four o'clock to make posters to advertise the movie 1 which the Community Club is putting I n this week. They had planned a halk but the weather did not petnit it. Ethel Heglge was absent last week on account of fllnem Troop No. 1 of the Boy Scouts had = meeting Saturday morning. Harlin Knoll of the Sophomore class is on the sick list this week. { A mistake was nmde in the last is-i sue of the School Notes concerning[* ile Discussion Contest. Anita Mc-i Allister will represent our high school at the State Dscusslon contest on i February 17 instead of at Wilhnar on I the 16th. I The Civic Classes are engrossed in l I the study of the Constitution of the I United States. If you wish to know any technical point in law, ask them. The Seniors have started work on I their short stories which will be from six hundred to fifteen words long. The plot anti characters must be original productions. Quite a number of high school stu- lents accompanied the girls team to YIilbank. Their cheering encouraged Lhe tem a great deal in spite of the [ /act that the game ended in a score of 7 to 10 in favor of Milbank. Mr. and Mrs. FitzSimmons also accom- panied the team. Remember the Senior Class Play on February 24. The Junior Class in a body attend- ed the funeral of Mr. A. B, Kaercher, Thursday afternoon of last week. The inter-class basketball games are to be held in the near future. The boys rubber rack is now com- pleted and soon will be in use. The fact that the girls had a rubber-rack before the boys is explained by "La- dies First." The Senior Boys' Glee Club have bad an enjoyable time practicing and soon will be proficient in the art of imitating the banjo. The Senior Class Play is coming. When? Friday evening, Feb. 24. Where? At the Orpheum Theatre. What's the name of it? "All On Account of Polly." Watch for the hand bills. FARMERS TAKE NOTICE All my time and attention will be given to handling your sales this spring.
