The local officials of the G. H. are
daily expecting information from the
general offices at Houston regarding
the train service that is to be installed
on the G. H. between El Paso and Del
Rio, the effect of which will be to give
double daily train service between El
Paso and points east. It is said that
the service wil go on on November .1.
"While the general manager of the
G. JL, in a Herald interview, stated that
the reason for the additional service
was principally an advertisement, it is
probable that another reason is to
fully occupy its territory and keep out
possible competitors. The Gould lines
are to a certain extent competitors, of
the Sunset-Central route in transcon
tinental passenger service.

STAFF IS SELECTED FOR
HIGH SCHOOL MAGAZINE
Edward Freeman Is Editor and Mary
RohertHon Assistant; Adkins
After a strenuous week in the high
school, of study, and also seven days of
seething1 political excitement inciden
tal to the election of officers for the
high school magazine, "The Tattler,"
the results of the election were placed
on the bulletin board in the lower main
hall, and every one breathed a sigh of
relief. The results were:
Editor In chief Edward Freeman.
Assistant editor in chief Mary Rob
ertson. Business manager Adkins Bowden.
"Who's who, and why Paul Nafe.
Touching Talks Nell Safford.
Society May belle Bryan.
Exchange Lois Smith.
Athletics Vernon Lyman.
The "Tattler" was .launched in 107,
and such was the success of the baby
journal that teachers and pupils alike
were enthusiastic in advocating its per
petuation. On the staff that year
were. Edward W. Miller, Sam A. Blair,
Henry Shedd, Thornton Hardie, Ethel
Taylor, Florence Klein. Will Blair
and Leona Black.
The first paper that was ever issued
in the El Pso high school was "The
Athenean," edited and published by
hand by the class of 1304. This was
wholly and entirely a class paper, the
limited numbers being jealously guard
ed bj- tVe class members. In the suc
ceeding years other efforts were made
to issue a school paper, none success
fully, however, till the advent of the
Tattler. In this, the fourth year of
its existence, much enthusiasm is being
manifested in the effort to make it the
best year of all.
