HIGH SCHOOL NOTES
; Mfss Mae Lididers is back in school
after a week's illness.
f The junior hop committee has se
cured the tower for June 3 to hold
the regular junior hop and reception
to the graduating class. The juniors
plan ' to make this year's reception
the most successful one ever held.
A meeting of the track coaches and
principals of high schools was held
at Galesburg Saturday. The meeting
was called to form an association' to
take the place of the Military Track
association. The Military Track asso
ciation, so called from the govern
ment name of this district of Illinois,
has comprised 10 schools, and has
held annual meets at Elmwood. This
year some of the larger schools forc
ed the adoption of a rule that after a
man had won a first place in any
event he was to be barredi from com
petition in that event thereafter. As
a result of this ruling four' of the
f-chools withdrew, nindjwith two oth
ers have formed a nwleague. The
schools that are nowin the league
are Galesburg, Rock Island, Moline,
Alcdo, Elmwood and Princeton. Ke
wanee and Canton have been invited
to join the league. The association
will allow Knox college to have di
rection of the meet, the schools hold
ing membership dividing the pro
ceeds. Heretofore Knox has held an
invitation meet, but as the. schools
sent but small teams, and the meet
was given largely to advertise the
college, this has been rather unsatis
factory. With the new method' each
school will send a large excursion in
addition to the athletic team, as the
railroads have granted, a flat rate of
one fare for the round trip.
One. important feature of the meets
will be the oratorical and declama
tory contests, each school being re
quired to have at least one represen
tation competing or forfeit their
membership in Hie association. The
officers of the association are:
President Principal Barlow, of
Princeton high school.
Vice President Principal J. II. lleil
of Moline high school.
Secretary Principal Taylor, of Al
edo high school.
Permanent, Treasurer Mr.' Sissou,
a prominent newspaper man of Gales
burg, and treasurer of the Knox col
lege athletic association.
It is expected that- about 150 from
Rock Island and 150 from Moline will
attend this year's meet to be held
May U. Rock Island has always had
some winning men, having taken first
and second in the mile run for two
years and places in several other
events. Invitations will be sent to
other schools to compete, so that this
year's meet promises to be the larg
est ever held in this section.
The basketball game to have, been
played Wednesday with Davenport
girls has been cancelled. The girls
play Augustana Saturday, and the
boys play the Twentieth Century
team; also of Augustana.
The proceeds of the art exhibition
were about $:C)0, at least $100 of this
being from the sale of ice cream.
Each school in the city will receive
one picture, and the rest of the fund
will be used for the high school. The
result of the vote has not been an
nounced yet, but the two favorites
are the one of Shakespeare's borne
and that of Scott's home. The ex
hibit was sent to Dixon- this .luom-inir.
