S. Halley, Principal
' 1 BILITY to concentrate is of all mental attributes the most essential to good
Lili work. All students do not possess this 'ability to the same extent. In some,
. . . . . .
in fact, it seems to be remarkably well developed while in others it 1S al'
most entirely wanting. A study hall is one of the finest places in the world
in which to observe the mental attributes of students. Some students
will be found so absorbed in their work that nothing short of an earthquake or
some other such violent shock could in any way detract their attention, such
students are interested immensely in their work, are determined to get the most
out of their school life, are possessed with a seriousness of purpose that will not
only carry them successfully through high school and college, but will be to them
an ever increasing asset in after life. Other students, probably through no fault
of their own, would like to do good work, but cannot concentrate. Their minds
are wandering, their thoughts are not definitely fixed upon the task at hand, any
little disturbance either outside the hall or inside the hall will catch their attention,
and in many cases they are only too willing for their attention to be caught. They
have no fixed determination, no seriousness of purpose, they see much that they
would like, but to obtain it they are not willing to pay the price.
The students of the first class are the students that the colleges and universities
desire, they are the students that remain at the universities until they graduate and
are an honor to the institutions that they represent. Or if instead of attending
a university they should decide upon a business career the same qualities of mind
that would have brought them success in college will bring them success in bus-
The students of the second class are not wanted at the universities, and if they
should be so unfortunate as to get in, they are soon dropped.

We're going "Old Courtland," we're going,
We're going to leave you in June,
'Tis time, though, we hate to be going
It's coming but all too soon.
We're going away from these lessons
And the contests we all have wong
We're going out into this world
To meet new work and fun.
We're going away from our classmates,
And the friendships all so dear,
The teachers' kind smile and patience too
I We're leaving them all this year.
We're going away from this dear old school,
But never shall we forget
The lessons that we have learned right here,
And the happy noon hours spent.
We're going to say farewell tonight,
As the time we dreaded has comeg
We have to leave this school behind
For the new .work that's begun.
