W hile he maV not be exactly conscious of it, what he

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. Even if

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
