Each year separate contests have been held for the boys and the girls for the purpose of se lecting representatives to go to the county contest which is held in the early part of April. In this contest each school in the county is entitled to four representatives, two boys and two girls. The method of selecting contest ants was changed somewhat this year for it was believed by the faculty that the most good would result to lo cal students by placing the emphasis on the local contests. Therefore a large number of students, as high as twelve from a class, had been coached for the events of yesterday. Each teacher on the high school faculty had taken a responsible part in the pre paration and the result of their ef forts w r ere extremely noticeable in the closeness of the contest. The choice of the judges, by classes, was as follows; Senior boys—Charles King, Earl Voldersen. Senior girls— Helen Schatz, Lillian Hartwig. Junior girls—Evelyn Webb, Meta Schoech ert. Sophomore boys—Peter Brooks, Walter Webb. Sophomore girls— Fanny Hoffmann, Hilda Schultz. Freshmen boys Louis Haznaw, George Lewandowski. Freshmen girls—lrene Walloch, Minna Ziebell and Frances Noon. The latter two were tied for a place and it was--de cided to give both representation on the public progiam. Among those who acted as judges were Attorney E. F. Wieman, the Rev. M. L. Eversz, the Rev. H. Rehm, Mrs. Bacon, Miss Shiunick, lyiiss Wilder and Miss Pease. Owing to the size of the classes and the lack of room in the high school, the Senior contest was held in the M. E. church. The date of the public contests, to which the public will be invited, has not jet been definitely decided but will prob ably be March 4 and 11.

HARTIG Step into any public place where liquid refreshments are served and what is the most popular beverage? Beer. During the past summer beer has been more generally used everywhere that ever before. 1 Why? Because beer is in a class by itself —a popnlar class —stand- i ing as it does, as the happy medium between total abstinence, on the one hand, and intoxicating distilled liquors on the other. Beer is becoming to be realized more and more as a real temperance drink—a drink for the masses. Hartig’s Beer, the Home Product, Leads them All. - It’s increasing use is enjoyed by thousands who appreciate its fine flavor and know the good qualities it contains. Hartig’s beer is a malt food, pleasing to the taste, highly nourishing and strengthening to the body. Order it. Ask for it.
