Can't say. Mr. Archer hasn't
had one good looking • picture
made in his young life.
In the last issue of "High Life,’*
ye editor cannot let the opportunity
pass without thanking the school
and espc ia’lv the Senior class for
the whole-hecirted and loyal support
which they have given. Never has
a call for material been made that
it has not been answered in some
The editor also feels that the
staff should be lauded for its har
monious co-operation. It has not
allowed personal opinions or de
sires to stand in its way, and it has
always made it possible for the
editor to work—unmolested.
Although High Life has still
many roads to travel to become
a model paper, it has been our en
deavor to carry on the good work
of our predecessors and advance and
broaden its usefulness as much as
has been in our power. An effort
has been made to estimate correctly
what a majority of the students
wanted and make High Life a re
flection of the life and ideals of the
student body. It has been the pur
pose of tlie editors to make High
Life have some meaning to each
student in school and give every
phase of student activities and each
department in school, an equal
amount of publicity.
Whether we have succeeded or
failed—and we are fully aware of
our limitations—we part with a
clear conscience of having given
our best meager as it has been.

The most dubious of the doubting
ing Thomases cannot but admit that
the present student council has been
a decided success. Though it has
been in operation only for a few
months, still it has had a founda
tion that is so sturdy and practical
that its ability is not to be denied.
Three cases of dishonesty have
been dealt with, as has a case of
discipline. These problems have
been disposed of in a thoroughly
svstematic and just manner. The
members of the council did not
leave a stone unturned to get the
whole truth in each case and then,
justice was administered according
to the most conscientious judgment.
The council has approached every
question brought before it with an
open mind and has so far not
allowed prejudices to play any part
in its decisions.
This beginning made for student
participation in school government
is one for G. H. S. to be proud of.

Miss Mine’s first period Caesar
class has attempted to write a
newspaper notice of the forty-sixth
chapter in the “War with Ariovistus”
as it would probably appear today.
As former Latin students will re
member, Caesar and the tenth legion
were at a conference with Ariovistus
when they were attacked by his at

The Day !
The Germans have shown their
treachery again! Caesar and the
tenth legion were attacked by the
attendants of Ariovistus while at a
conference with him today. Rocks
and weapons were thrown on our
troops, greatly endangering their
lives. Caesars’ presence of mind
saved the day. Not wishing to give
Ariovistus a chance to say he started
the battle, he ordered the tenth le
gion not to hurl back any of the
weapons but return to camp. This
unbearable treachery of Ariovistus
will mean war.
