The Bruin, New Bern High School,
Kew Bern, X. C.—Such papers as yours
are going a long way towards putting
the Old North State on the map as far
as high school papers are concerned.
The Bracken Ridge Times, Bracken
Ridge High School, San Antonio, Texas
You have in your paper one that you
may well be proud of. The picture of
the “Gypsy Sweetheart” add greatly to
the make-up of the front page. As for
your editorial on “My Candidate” it is
one of the best editorials of its kind
that we have yet seen.
Roosevelt News, The Roosevelt High
School, Seattle, Washington—Your paper
has all the makings of a city journal.
With your slogan how can you go wrong?
However, don’t you think it would add
greatly to the appearance of it if you
would run your editorials on the sec
ond page, and use page four for your
sport page? If you would cut down the
number of ads you use, we believe it
would be for the good of your paper.
The Garfield Messenger, Garfield High
School, Seattle, Washington — Seattle
seems to be a city, of good high school
papers. The Messenger is obviously a
credit to your city as well as to your
school. We have one or two criticisms
to make, however, which we hope you
will heed because we honestly believe it
will make your paper a better one. Try
to keep your jokes off the front page.
You should know that the front page is
no place for feature articles such as the
one about the holiday on Washington’s
Birthday. Why don’t you keep your
sport articles strictly confined to the
The Blue and White, Fort Supton
High School, Fort Supton, Wild County,
Colo.—Your idea of printing the issue
dedicated to the Freshmen on green
paper is a very novel one, and this is
the first time we have ever seen it tried.
As for your dedicating an issue to the
lowly freshmen, why that’s a fine idea.
What’s your idea in not having anything
on the third sheet’ Why not run your
ads or as many ads as possible on your
last sheet, if you must have so many,
and run your third sheet as a news or
a partly news sheet filling the rest of
this with ads, preferably the two outer
columns? Personally, though, we think
so many ads detract from the looks of
Polaris Weekly. North High School,
Minneapolis, Minn.—You have a paper
that would be well for many of the high
school papers to use as a pattern or an
example. Your column of “Speak Your
Mind” adds greatly to the make-up of
your paper. If more high school stu
dents would say what’s on their minds
it would he a great help to the school
and everybody concerned. Just one
word of criticism; why not cut your
pages down to five columns in width
and add more pages to your paper?
We could handle it better. It would not
be so large and clumsy!

milk in connection with their study of

Mr. Pemberton caters especially to
children. He keeps only thoroughbred
Holstein cattle and feeds them so that
the milk will contain elements in the
quantities needed by children. The milk
contains approximately fifteen per cent
proteins, and only three and five tenths
per cent butter fat. Children need a
great deal of lime for bone building and
so feed for the cows is rich in lime.
In visiting the cow barns and feed
barns, the class was impressed by the
cleanliness of the dairy throughout. The
milk was cooled, bottled, and! stored
under the most sanitary conditions.
Before the group left, Mr. Pemberton
