Put It First
The report cards for the second re
port period of this semester were
issued on Tuesday of this week. A
careful examination of the Honor
Roll lists and the Failure Sheets
shows us that scholarship in the
Senior High school does not show
any material improvement as com
pared with the first report of this
semester. We feel that the most im
portant thing ill connection with
high school is scholarship, and we
are very much concerned over the
indifference of some students toward
school marks. We have approxi
mately five more weeks in this se
mester, and all of you can improve
your semester average by more and
better effort. I encourage you to
place school first during these last
few weeks, and to do everything
within your power to improve the
scholarship standing of our high
school. Nothing less than your best
will be satisfactory.
