What vnluo lias a high school paper? Is It a plaything or n vital part of high school life,? The high school publi cation may ho cither hi many eases it Is distinctly harmful In that It pre. senls lo receptive lillnils low Ideals of humor, faulty emphasis on news val. ues, mill pour standards of business methods. It may ami frequently does beromu n waste of energy and vitality. However, If properly directed the high shoot paper Is a powerful aid lo the school and Its activities both In and out of the cI.ish room, It may ho a bond between school and conimtinlt). To be a derided mhatitage to the school. Iho content of the paper must bo of value. It should publish the news of the school, Information on various school activities, such as de bating, athletic contests, assemblies social and business gathering, and the work of various departments, new coures of study, chance In the policy anil direction of work, Important gen eral regulations and announcements, ami program of Interest to pupils and purons. A wisely directed department o, opinion and comment on school af fairs by editor nn. I reader would add life and interest to tho upper. Since such a publication must first of all re llect t Iio life and atmosphere of the school, tho entertaining feature can not be Ignored. The school paper must not be made Into a tract, for be ing unread. It will fall of Its tlrst oh. Ject to be read, "Hut there aro qual. ltlcs and qualities of entertainment." Humor should bo In good taste. The silly personal reference should be eliminated. Attempts at humor should he worthy A hit of i lever verso would bo desirable. The pa. per should encourage students of an artistic turn of mind by glWtig an out let for their energy. Tho best literary efforts should bo sought and publish, ed. Gathering and writlne news Items. Judging news values, determining the worth of a contribution, proof-reading, making up the pjper. In short, "get tins out" the paper should bo conduct. nJ ou as accurate basis and with as tnuch thought as the solving of a problem In mathematics or tho doing of an experiment In science. Accur. acy In observation and accuracy in ex. pression should be tho tlrst and last commandments of the high school Journalist. When the high school pub. llcatlon ceases to educate its editorial and business staff. It falls In part, at least, to Justify Its existence. Such a school paper should serve tho school community In the same way in which a live newspaper serves its readers. Its powers to do this are limited only by the ability of those di recting It, to grasp tho Importance of their trust and to luaka tho most of tho boundless opportunities tho paper offers.

'I bete Is no reason why the majority of pupils shoul I not meet the conditions. The required amount of HOME STUDY will make it possible.

The water began lo pour in the ship, and first tiling we knew wo were sinking We weie all eating supper when the Captiau passed the word, "all hands on deck with life preservers, tho ship is going down", and believe me, I thought ill V time bad come. We worked like every thing lo keep the water out of the ship anil at nine o'clock we had It out. We tired! three distress signals, put the ling hh side down, and the "''hiladelphla" came to our rescue. A large Kuglioli ship went by and when we fired our guns you should have seen her run, and she went like lightering. She thought that we were tiring at her. It was fun to see her stear away. Well at inn o'clock they called for volunteers to go in the life I oat to take a message to h tug boat to pull u on" of the groud. So one ollicer, feven of the Iniys and I, started out. The sea was wild and ihe waves were high. We only got a few vaids from the ship when the life bout was filled with water. The ollicer was' SOLDIER BOY !
