Scholarship, not merely for the grades but the knowledge one gams by study and thought, is a reward within itself. Service—so easily achieved by anyone! A kind word or deed, no matter how small, goes a long way toward making one’s fellowman happy. Leadership is perhaps a bit hard er to attain, for all of us cannot be leaders. However, we can strive to become better ones through con scious effort and perseverance. Character is perhaps the most important of all. It plays a promi nent part in each of our lives, and, furthermore, the future of our country depends greatly on the character that is developed by the boys and girls of today. Congratulations, A. H. your initiation into the National Honor society! This is undoubted ly one of the greatest advance ments made in our school. The or ganization of an honor society will serve both as an incentive for stu dents to work and as an ideal for better all-round development of each member of the student body. power and patience to struggle with the problems that confronted them? It would be hard to get along with out the modern conveniences and medical perfections that men like Edison, Pasteur, Cooper, Fulton, the Wright brothers. Bell, Morse, and Whitney worked persistently to give us. It takes effort, perseverance, and ‘stick-to-it-iveness,” to be able to finish all that which we have be gun. Let’s make our motto, “Fol low through,” and work with a sire to win. Remember that ever quits and a quitter never wins.” Quitters Are you a quitter? The kind of person who never finishes a task that he has begun? After leaving a small bit of work unfinished, it becomes easier the second and third time. Each task may become larger and more important, and soon we do not have the will power to complete any of our work. Be fore we know it, it has become the battle of life that we are up against. Then it’s too late; the battle is al ready lost, if one is a quitter. There is no time better than the present for us to learn to continue our work from the beginning end. Now it will be hard to break the quitting habit, but if we wait, then it becomes much more diffi cult. Quitting keeps one from pro gressing, and makes his a weak, reliable character. Think of the things we would be without today if the leaders of yesterday had been quitters. What kind of country would this be if Washington, Lee, Jefferson, Mann, and Lincoln had not had the will Ready? Get Set! May S—Field Day! Have you made any plans for it? Are you go ing to participate in any of the ac tivities? Your class needs your help, so drag out that school spirit and be on hand to score points along with your other classmates. It is up to you to make this second annual Field Day a success. It depends altogether on your par ticipation in the events and your cooperation, just as did the carni val. And congratulations—since we are on the subject of the carnival— to you, students, and to the advis ory council, for making it a real success. It is such cooperation and good will as was shown then, that forms the incentive to plan and carry out more extra-curricular activities.
