Mr. Prank Sprague, President
Board of Educatipn, Perrys
) burg, Ohio-.
Dear Sir: A. representative of
this department visited your high
school, as you know, on Feb. 7th.
His report, which has been filed at
this office, shows that he found
your school in very good- condi
tion. Ho found very little which
ne cnose to criticise, tne main
points in which he thought im
provement very desirable being
Two of the first year classes are
considerably over size those in
algebra and English. It seems un
n fortunate that any classes should

cially so when these classes are in
such subjects as these with the
youngest pupils in your high
school. A rearrangement of the
daily schedule which would per
mit these classes to bo divided
each into two sections would be
enormously profitable education

in . apparatus-which should be
cared for the notable shortages
are a Babock milk tester and a

Very truly yours,
F. B. PEARSON,

Section 1406 of the Revenue Act
approved February 24, 1919,
authorizes the payment of a bonus
of $60.00 to ofticers, soldiers, field
clerks and nurses of the army upon
honorable separation from active
service by discharge, resignation
or otherwise. This bonus is not
payable to the heirs or representa
tives of any deceased soldier.
Those who are discharged here
after mil receive this bonus on the
same roll or voucher upon which
they are paid their final pay. -'
Those who have been discharged
and have received their final pay
without the $60.00 bonus, should
write a letter to the Zone Finance
Officer, Lemon Building, Washing
ton, D. C, stating their service
since April 6, 1917, the date of last
discharge and their present ad
dress to which they desire their
bonus checks to be sent and enclos
ing with this letter their discharge
certificate or military order for
discharge and both where both
were issued. -
Upon the receipt by the Zone
Finance Officer, Washington, D.
C, of this information and the sol
dier's discharge certificate, this
officer will cause checks to be
drawn and mailed to the claimants
in the order in which their claims
were received by him. The dis
charge certificate will be returned
to the soldier with" the check.
It is estimated that at least one
million and a quarter persons have
been discharged from the service
who are entitled to the benefits of
this act and while payments will
be made as expeditiously as prac
ticable, it will manifestly take con
siderable time to write and mail
this many checks.

The demerit system has been
introduced in P. H. S. This sys
tem is similar to those used in
larger high schools, although not
as complex. For certain offences,
slips will be given out by the
teachers to. the offenders. For
each demerit one-half hour must
be "made up." Fifteen demerits
means automatic expulsion. The
double purpose of this system is
(1) to diminish disiplinary cases,
(2) to raise the average grade.
The grades of those whom these
demerits affect are usually low.
These grades will eventually be
raised either. by the extra half
hour of study or better attention

By R. E. R.
Oii Fridaj', March 7, the P. H
S. boys' and girls' teams played at
Pemberville. The P. H. S. boys
were handicapped to a great ex
tent owing to the absence of Capt.
"Walt" Thornton from the line
up. Capt. Thornton was injured
in a practice game against the
town team last Wednesday. The
team played well and deserve
credit for their courage on a
strange floor minus their pilot. In
the first half Pemberville led, 20 to
3. In the second half Perrysburg
gained confidence and let Pember
ville out with 13 more points,
scoring 10 for themselves. Score
at end of game: Perrysburg 13,
The girls' game was a very in
teresting contest from start to
finish. Pemberville girls played a
very rough game. Perrysburg
girls had Pemberville defeated up
until the last quarter, when Pem
berville center had a streak of
luck and shot three field goals in
succession while one of the for
wards dropped another through
the net. Score; Perrysburg 6,

Twenty-five men and women, in
cluding 15 Toledoans, were hurt
when a Toledo, Bowling Green &
Southern interorban car was
wrecked by a fast passenger train
on the Clover Leaf crossing in
Maumee Monday morning.
The car, with its vestibule de
molished, was knocked into a ditch
where it overturned. Passengers,
screaming and struggling, climbed
from the broken windows.
Frank Barnhart, motorman, of
Bowling Green, and one of the
most seriously injured, said he
stopped his car at a derail, but
then proceeded after the con
ductor, W. W. Merder, threw the
switch and signaled to advance:
The conductor is said to have
observed the approaching train,
but believed the car. could cross
the tracks in time to avoid a col

dragging after it the two trucks of
