Some Advantages of Our High School IN years we are young, neither do we deceive ourselves about all beginnings being diflicult. Thanks to the local school board, all our reasonable needs have been generously provided for. A commodious building, centrally and prominently situated, will be used ex- clusively for high school purposes, as soon as our growth requires it. The steam heating, electric light- ing and plumbing throughout the building are modern and superior in every respect. The library is being added to constantly and already contains many of the most essential reference and reading books. The science laboratories and other equipments are meeting our necessary requirements. Our course of study has been broadened so as to meet the needs of our enlarged constituency. This in turn necessitated increasing the number of members of the faculty. Our graduates and near-graduates meas- ure well above the average in scholarship, character, and general ability. Our school, in fact, is standing on the tiptoe of exceptancy to know whether the State University will say "Well done, thou good and faithful servant,” and reward us with a place on its roll of merit—its accredited list. A well-lighted gymnasium, provided with dressing rooms, lockers, and bath, has afforded unusual faciliiies for winter athletics. A series of intramural games among the students themselves and with local teams, have afforded many of the advantages of interscholas- tic contests with few of the disadvantages. The Westwood High School is unique in that it furnishes practically all text-books and supplies free. It is doubtful also whether many, if any, high schools of our size offer so much free evening school work. Has nature’s environment of forest and mountains ever appealed to you as an educational asset? ‘I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help." Have the "high places’’ lost all their signi- ficance as an inspiration for the weary and discouraged and as the dwelling place of the Most High? Have the tills clad in "snows that fall a trifle whiter” no lesson n purity? "The groves were God’s first temples." Must our worship be ever in a chapel and never in a grove? Who shall say but that the distant pines, whose verdure merges almost imperceptibly with the “skies a trifle bluer.” hold thetr lesson of devotion to purpose? Is there not a "Great Stone Face” resident in our own majestic mountains, which is casting a benign influence upon us? May it be given us to realize our advntages both the unseen and the seen. A. H. VOEGELEIN. 4 12
