French Learned In School. Put to Good
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
i f
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
a Date with Us This Saturday
' 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.

ments. 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

The resignation of Harry Harlow as
one of the associate editors was accepted.
His successor will be appointed at an
early date.

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
