Moe of Christine this week enlisted in the ordnance do" partinent of the United States navy. the finished fighter is shown in de tail, and there are also intimate pictures of the marines, those "soldiers of the sea," the navy, the air serivee and other branches. How the war has affected the industry of the nation will also be seen in the pictures, how the lab or of all, from the leader of busi ness in his office to men who shock the wheat or dig the coal, is vitally needed for the prosecution of the struggle. It takes an hour a fid a half to show the film, and perhaps in no other way could so much informa* tion be imparted in the same length of time. The soldiers are shown literally from the time they leave home right up to the front line trendies. COS!

The reserves gave us their regular drill night and they will drill on Wednesday evening. HIGH SCHOOL NOTES Enough cannot be said in praise of the operatta—"The Rose and the Pearl," which was given last week by the pupils of the seventh and eighth grades. The chorus work of the witches and the fair ies was especially pleasing while solos by Ellworth Prather, Sarah Jones, Rose Lauder, and Florence Van Tassel showed hitherto un' suspected talent. The entire play was under the supervision of Miss Bosworth whose efficient direction produced such splendid results. Miss Gladys Lohr was a pleasing accompanist. The game played with Fargo last Friday evening resulted in a victory for our home team, 33 to 12. The game and the athletic ben. etit afterward were well attended and everyone enjoyed themselves thoroughly. Miss Fulton has suggested the! subject of standarization of dress for commencement to the senior girls. A vote will be taken on the subject about March first, so that the girls will have ample time to consider the proposition.' Isn't it funny to hear L. B. an E. R. talking about bids. A surgical dressing class will be organized for II. S. girls. All the girls are urged to join and do their bit for their co urn try. A "pound" has been establish ed for any stray garments which .s. The fact that the idea for these war films was President Wilsons is illuminative of the general pol icy of the president to let the peo ple know what their government is doing with their men and their money. Incidentally, these films, if shown by private enterprise, woul be high priced, but shown for the government by the state council of defense, may be seen for 25, and 15 cents. The idea is not to make profit, but to "carry the facts to the people." If there is a profit from the showing of these films in North Dakota it will be given to the Red Cross or some other or ganization doing war work. At. the Braun theatre, Thursday, today.
