TUITION PUPILS ,
THE number of tuition pupils attending Barron High.School
has increased greatly in the past few years. This year
ninety-seven of the one hundred sixty-three students enrolled are
from without the district. They come, for the most part, from
the territory adjacent to the city and from the southern and
western parts of the county in which there are no high schools.
With the advent of so many tuition pupils, conditions have arisen
which require careful consideration and study.
The increased attendance requires and to a large extent
makes' possible a wider range of election in the course of study
pursued. But' under present conditions, a proper diversification
is not possible, due to a lack of facilities for introducing the extra
courses. Our class rooms, as Well as the assembly, are filled to
overflowing at all times by the classes in courses now prescribed.
Our teaching staff is overloaded with work. Our laboratories are
crowded and the equipment in them is inadequate for careful
The solution of the problem seems, to us, best accomplished
by increasing the size of the High School building and by increas-
ing the teaching force. An addition will be necessary shortly at
all events and if we would serve the cause of educating our young
people well, the sooner our facilities are enlarged, the better work
can be done.
SCHOOL SPIRIT '
What is school spirit and what does it amount to? School
spirit is to our school what patriotism is to our country. This is
our school and it is a good one. We are willing to do anything to
increase the fame and reputation of the school. We want to get
behind it and make it a winner even if a small personal sacrifice
is necessary. That is true school spirit.
The support given our basket ball teams the past year by the
students has been pitifully poor. There was but little cheering
at the games and the little that was manifested was very feeble.
The same spirit was shown when we had mass meetings at the
schoolhouse. Only a few of our old standbys really got' in and
made a noise. The rest stood silent or nearly so.
Our representatives have shown up well in the various con-
tests this year and we'are proud of it. We have just as good or
even better prospects for next year. Let's all get our shoulder”
