1 EDITORIAL As this is being written we are within four weeks of commencement. lt hardly seems possible that the school term is so nearly over. l have heard this fact commented on by students and teachers. "This year has gone faster than most," they say. One hears the same comment at the close of a good entertainment, or a fast game of basketball. I believe this means that this year in our high school has been a better year than last year. or the year before that, or the year before that, and so on. We certainly should be thankful that this is fo, and no doubt we are. in a general way, But. to go farther than this, there must be caus.-s for the steady improvement which is being made in our high school, lf we pause long enough to figure out these causes, we shall be able to devote our attention more definitely to these factors another year, and thus to continue the improvement, Usually, when at boy or girl does not live up to the standards set for him. the blame is laid on the parents. We often hear it said that the faults of the children are the faults of the parents. llow frequently we hear this. "Like father, like son" or "What more can you expect of her? Look at her mother." This year we have very little about which to com- plain, but a great deal in which to rejoice concerning the interest, good will. and industry of the students. lt is only fair, then, that we direct our first word of appreciation to the parents who have done so much toward making this a successful school year. The teachers apprtciate every word of encouragement which has been given the students at home. as well as every inquiry which has been made concerning the progress of the children in school. Speaking of interest serves to remind us of the unceasing attention of the board of directors to the work of maintaining the schools at their present high standard of equipment. Without good equipment the teachers work with the students is greatly hamperet. We members of the high school are therefore grateful to the school board for their devotioa to the cause of education. Another potent influence on the lives of the young people are the churches of Ridgway Probalfly at no time in the history of our community has so much valuable work been done by our Christian churches. Moreover, the Y. M. C. A.. a product of the church. with its young peoples' organizations has valiantly supported the work of the church and school. These great Christian institutions have had a large share in the success of this year's work in the high school. There isn't any right thinking person, who does not realize that the work of the teacher as well as the parent, would be immeasurably harder in a town where such splendid institutions were not a prominent part of the community life. As is always the case. there are some things which might be improved upon. Perhaps it is best to mention only one of these. On most Tuesdays, and every other Friday the high school meets for morning worship in the auditorium. Following the devotional exercises programs of a varied nature. Some arents have attended these assembly periods, and, we believe, have enjoyed them. We shoulil like to have a great many more parents and towns- people join us in these morning exercises. We know that you would be even ,more interested in the schools could you find time, now and then, to attend our assemblies. The old custom of visiting school seems to have fallen into discard. Might it not be a good idea to revive it somewhat? Next month there is to be a great exodus from our high school. The graduating class of over eighty people will make a big ap in our ranks, We are sorry to see them go. lt has been a pleasure to work with them for the past three years. The final appreciative word goes to you seniors from students and teachers alike when we thank you for your unfailing friendliness through these years. We trust that you, too, will return to visit us after your school days are over. D. D. PEIRCE S
