There fore, the paper is going to be turned over to them at stated in tervals and they will be relied upon to make a good showing, not only for their school, but for themselves and the Junior. An editorial staff will be chosen vest ing its officers with file right to take on assistants, and they will l>e expected to exercise their in genuity in turning out a paper which will not fall short in any way. but will rather be a credit to all concerned.

The boys and girls of the latter institution are anxious to turn out such an interesting edi tion that"the many rivals to come will have a hard time getting even a notch ahead.
