What kind of school would our
school he if every week in it were
Better Speech Week?
Now the only fair thing to do is to
give tile teachers a chance to imper
sonate some of us pupils.
It must be exciting to have a toe
well trained as KnoCs.
It might become embarrassing if
our inner selves talked out loud ev
ery day as thev did in chapel.
Pour religion on and it makes you
sanctified, but pour sulphuric acid
on and it makes vou hollelv.
We heard some little birds trying
to mock our Philip. Thev ought to
know thev couldn’t do that.

Oil, to be a Senior!
Did vou ever stop to think what
it's like to he a senior? Some of
you say. "Humph! There goes a sen-
ioriiNheti I m a senior I'll never be
like her. ' Others say—mostly fresh
men and children in the grades, I'll
admit, hut anyway they say it—
‘’Look! there goes a senior! Oh!
to be a s(Mior. " Then tliev roll their
eves, vou know the way. and clasp
their hands and go struttin’ off as if
it were their only ambition in life—
to reach the exalted stage of senior-
But its not sucli a wonderful thing
great honor of being a senior and you
can stalk around your fellow chu>s-
men and look at them as if thev
were the s(mm of the earth, but let
me give you a little advice—a warn
ing. Don't try that stunt at home!
V ou may think you can put it over
but you can't.
You march home from school with
a mighty purpose in your heart, “I’ll
show 'em whether T bring in that
wood or not. Fm a senior now', and
I'll do as 1 please. They can't boss
me any longer. No sirree!" W'oe
be unto vou. Miglitv Knight. T fear
you are doomed to disappointment.
You enter the house like a con-
quer«>r ot old—minus the armor.
To vour disgu.st vou find mother with
a sick headache, that means you’ll
have to argue with dad and you did
so hope to get the whole beastly Ims-
iness over before he came home.
Oh. well, no use to erv over spilt
"Bob. won't you please bring in
wood." Ignorant woman! She does’iU
know you aren't going to bring in
any more wood, does she? You are
just ai)Out to answer when dad slams
himself in. He's in a bad temper,
something wrong at the office, you
know. “Bring in some wood, boy,
and do it pretty cpiick. too." That’s
the end of your resistance. You
leave without a word and proceed to
the humble task of bringing in wood.
So. seniors and seniors to -be. if
you must be proud and haughty, do
it at scliool.
Don't practice it at home ’cause it
won t w'ork. Maybe I’ve tried it. who

“Built for Service"
Since when, mav 1 ask. have .ses
sion room desks assumed tlie respon
sibility of the trash basket? They
have, it’s a fact, because at the close
oi school. I ve found my desk lit
tered with scraps of paper.
No one that was not thoughtless
and lazy or deliheratelv unmindful
of the commonest consideration to
ward otliers would make another
students desk look loke a waste-pa
per basket at roll call. The only
apology that the offenders might
offer is the sort that we have to of
fer for them - their dumJmess.
W e wish to liccome acquainted
with schools all over the United
Stales and feel that we can accom
plish this best through the exchange
column. We invite your comments
and criticisms in the hope that it
will helj) ns make our paper the best
that can be had.
‘'The Westport Crier”—This is
one of the best papers we have re
ceived so far. Everything in it is
interesting and worth while.
iManual Arts Weekly’—Jhis is
another splendid paper. It is an un
usually large paper and contains ex
cellent material, which is both well-
written and interesting.
‘The Advocate —Jhis paper also
comes in the excellent list. However,
a few jokes, to liven the paper up.
would not he amiss.
“J'he Forester’’—This is a fine
school paper wit hplenty of spicy,
'■Fhe Habit —This paper is well-
balanced and entertaining, making it
one of the best exchanges that we
luue received. -Bertha Ferree. 106.
