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
May it be given us to realize our advntages both the
unseen and the seen.
