EDITORIAL For the third time in the history of the Benton Harbor High School, the llSwastikall is brought be- fore the plublic,--a record of our, doings in the school- room. All the classes are represented, and we have tried to make it as interesting to them, and as much for them, as for the Senior class, thoiugh the latter alone must bear the praise of success or the blame of failure. It is not to be expected that high school students can publish a book which is entirely faultless, for we know that all people make mistakes. We can but do our best, and trust that each year the oiut-going class will succeed in doing better. The Swastika symbol signihes lgood luck, long life, and prosperity? and we, in turn, can truly wish that our llSwastikaT its namesake, will enjoy the same blessings. The new high school building for which we have wished so long, is no longer a thing of fancy. but a fact. It is. a source of much pleasure to us that the addition was made before we left school, thus enabling us to share in the advantages gained. By the addition, live class-ro-oms, besides the library, of- iice, and large assembly hall extending the length of the building, were added. The physical and chemical laboratories are well equipped, aiding much both the teacher and pupils in the scientific work. The office, made up of two rooms, is a sunny, comfortable spot, and the class-rooms are all bright and roomy. The library is of great assistance to the students and is very popular with them, but it can accommodate many more volumes than it now contains. Perhaps the most appreciated part of the building, however, es- pecially to those athletically inclined, is the gymna- sium. This has been a potent factor in fostering the -' indoor sports in the school, for it has furnished the needed spot for the girls basket-ball practice, reviving their interest in the game, and is a field for informal class games of basket-ball. The inter-Class champion- ship games which started this winter and were held after school in the gymnasium, have aroused a great deal of enthusiasm among the student body. The thing lacking now, along that line, is an athletic di- rector, someone who can take charge of and oversee all the school athletics. There seems to be an idea prevalent among the business men that advertising in a school annual does not pay. Many objections are raised by some of them ; the impression is that no one ever looks at the advertising in the book, and the money paid out for the liadll is thrown away. But we beg to differ. While it is true that not everyone, perhaps, reads the adver- tising space thoroughly, still there are benefits derived. There are a great many pupils in the school who live

The business man will be benefited, and all through the book which he was kind enough to patronize. Some citizens prefer to expend their money by advertising in the daily and weekly newSpapers. But the newspapers do not last long. They are read one day, and used for kindling the lire a. day or two afterwards, and the notice is gone. In the annual, on the other hand, the space is safe as long as the book lasts, which is for years and years. A dollar and a quarter paid out one year will have Just as much effect five years afterward as at the time the advertisement was inserted.
