KUECH & CO. Brattleboro High School News Corner EDITOR-IN-CHIEF Alice Alexander ASSISTANTS Lyman Adams i Harry Anderson Evelyn Austin EDITORIAL French Learned In School. Put to Good Ise. People sometimes wonder if the French taught in the schools does the pupil any real good. To prove that the French learned in school is put to good use we are going to say something about a sys tem which has been in use in many high schools throughout the United States the last few years. Pupils in the advanced French classes are given an opportunity to corresjwnd with pupils in France, of about the same age and interests. In . this way our boys and girls are getting, ac quainted with many of the customs and ways of the people in different parts of France, besides using their knowledge-of French to good advantage. Part of the letters of our pupils are written in French and part in English, as are the letters of the French pupils. Some of the 1 rench correspondents live in B. II. S., it is understood that Mr. Bra nian, in order to help remedy the situa tion, is going to start a glee club. The music department has over 200 voices in the chorus this year, and it is therefore probable that a splendid cantata will be given. ' B. II. S. needs a big cheering squad at the game Saturday. Make your slogan, "Saxtons River or Bust!'! If hard work and ambition count for anything, The -Dial is going to have a rec ord year. Don't blame the freshmen for confusion and disobedience to rules. Look out for yourself first. If you want to remain on the football squad, keep up those marks ! The football team plays the second game of the season against Vermont acad emy at Saxtons River Saturday. As Ver mont academy has a heavy team a hard fought contest is expected from beginning to end. Let's go! The approaching issue of The Dial ,re minds us that those students who do not war-swept areas, and from them we re- !imv their class dues for the"lirst term LINDSEY PRESIDENT i f OF STUDENT COUNCIL BRATTLEBORO. PERSONAL BRATTLEBORO PERSONAL ceive many interesting anecdotes and i"-1 will not get their Dials, cidents of the late war and of conditions I existing there now. Many of the articles would be of interest to people outside of school, and we hope to print extracts from some of the letters which would make very interesting reading. The majority of the pupils were at the football game, last Saturday and saw just what our boys could and did do. They are going to play just such a game this Sat urday at Saxtons River. We want a 100 per cent cheering squad on hand. Let's, just as many as possible take cars and invite friends to go. Let's all go to the game Saturday to back up our home team and .show the spiri. the pupils of B. II. S. has toward their'team. The main room floor has a surprising way of becoming cluttered with paper. A suggested remedy for this condition is to have two or more policemen patrol the aisles at the end of every period and to arrest all those who "fling the paper into the middle section or who leave a white trail behind them. Pick up the papers ! It's splendid exercise ! As long as we have so few clubs in Make a Date with Us This Saturday First Saturday in LUKDE H H H H H E a a H Ls3 H ' The new traffic rules are to the point all right, but confusion in passing to and fro from classes is still prevalent. What is the matter with enforcing a few of your rules, Student Council? What is a dignified senior to do when he sees a freshman, "green" in the ways of the school, shoot a glider across the room or litter the floor with paper? Shall he turn the offender over his knee? Dorothea Vanderveer Secretary Elec tion Followed by Discussion of Various Subjects. r,ln-ln T.;nIfv n mpinher of the senior class, was elected president of the Student Council and Dorothea anuerveer secre tary yesterday afternoon. s A discussion was taken up about papers littered on the floor and it was suggested that a boy or girl be appointed to go up down the aisles at the end of every period to see that all papers are picked up. Marion Laughton was appointed to se lect these students. Another point that was takn up was the passing from one class to the other. There has been some commotion in such passing, and Philip Wheeler was ap pointed to work out some system whereby this commotion might be avoided. The Student Council apiwinted a com mittee consisting of Marion Laughton, Helen Dalrymple and Charles Crosby to appoint a committee of four or six fresh men passing in 15 hours a week to act as a nnniinnHni' rnmini tt.ee for the freshman class election. This Student Council com mittee is also to draw up the names of four or six freshman nominees lot mem bership in the Student Council. These are to be voted on by the freshman class and a bov and eirl elected. If the fresh men are not satisfied with any of the nominations they may nominate others from the floor before voting. It was voted also to have two teachers besides Mr. Caverly and Miss ellnshaw to assist the Student Council in co-opera tion between teachers anu pupns. VALUABLE EXHIBITS.

After some discussion on the sub ject, the board decided that this year's Dial would have four additional pages, a cover and several cuts; besides some new and very interesting departments. Helen Woodworth presented a plan by which the entire school's interest aud co operation might be secured. Among the suggestions was a "Dial day, when everyone in school will contribute to some department of the paper. This plan was presented to the school at yesterday morn ing's assembly.. Lvman Adams reported that it would be possible for The Dial hoard to use room 4 as an office any afternoon anu any study periods when it is not being u swL f orv rtui tot ions. A not he -tabU -or desk is soon to be installed. The resignation of Harry Harlow as one of the associate editors was accepted. His successor will be appointed at an early date. OUT French Weekly on List Again. It is of interest to advanced students of French in 15. II. S. to learn that the miniature French weekly, Le Petit Jour nal, is to be taken by the high school again this year. The aim of this interest ing paiier is to give interesting news and 5 j descriptions to give the student an in sight into me every -oay lire ami customs of the French jeople.
