"The Friendly Bank." During the
past few months this tendency has
been particularly noticeable—and we
want to welcome them all moat
There IS a spirit of friendliness here
which young men enjoy—just as their
sisters and their elders do. There is
also practical conservatism which will
always support thorn not only with
financial facilities but sound, work

The Advantage of
The Lyceum Course
Iceland Wilson, a sophomore of the
Colville high school, won a season ly
ceum ticket for the following article
as a result of the theme contest which
was conducted this week. The subject
of the theme was "The Advantage of
a Lyceum Course." All English class
es, with the exception of the seniors
who are sponsoring the lyceum, were
In discussing the advantages of
the Lyceum course let us first clearly
define in our own minds the mean
ing of the term "Lyceum Course."
The Lyceum Course is a series of
classical entertainments embodying
the best talent along musical, politi
cal and educational lines that the
country can produce.
The average audiences attending
entertainments of this kind comprise
two classes, namely, the town people
and the high school students. The
Lyceum Course is equally important
to both. First let us consider the
working man. Frequently one en
gaged in business or active work of
any kind feels the need of recreation
and a better knowledge of present
day problems. What is better for
such a man than an evening spent
with the family listening to some
good lecture along commercial, poli
tical, educational or economic lines?
The Lyceum Course uses only the
best lecturers; men who have had
long years of experience in most
cases, but in every case, a positive
authority on the subject in hand. For
the same individual or musical or hu
morous number such as those prpcur
ed by the Lyceum Course is the very
b«st form of recreation that he may
In the musical numbers the best
talent obtainable is secured and one
attending may expect to hear .the
very best of music whether vocal or
instrumental. This cultivates one's
taste for good music and makes it
possible for him to discriminate be
tween the best and that of an in
The humorous numbers are very
carefully chosen in view of the fact
that the right kind of recreation is
vitally essential for the well doing of
our work, whatever it may happen
to be. In this the Lyceum committee
is very careful.
The school student of the commu
nity can also derive much good from
such a course. It is obvious that
the high school student of today must
be the guiding power of the nation
in the years to come, therefore, it is
important that our students hear
these lectures along various politi
cal and educational lines.
The senior class itself derives
much good from handling the Ly
ceum Course. The members of the
class are taught the art of coopera
tion with the town folks and stu
dents in obtaining the influence and
money necessary to put this course
through. It is purely a business
proposition and must be handled as
The many good points both to the
town people and students should be
heeded. Therefore, let all of us boost
our utmost for the Lyceum Course by
buying a season ticket.
