Brattleboro High School News Corner Editors for This Issue: EDITOR-IN-CHIEF Dorothy Miller ASSISTANT EDITORS Mildred Miller William Moreton John Perkins EDITORIAL. (iood Habits and Athletics. Kt-epiug in condition for athletics i a matter that each student owes to his school, to his coach and to hhnsrlf. A healthy body makes a great difference in one's school work. A student who habitually is out late at night and is forever "scratchins matches" cannot be expected to pass satisfactorily in his sub jects. Look at this from the viewpoint of your coach. After picking out a team and working hard to put them in cham pionship form he discovers that one boy is absolutely useless to the team. The hoy has no wind, no stamina. The suc cess of a team depends a great deal if not absolutely upon the condition of the men. and this healthy condition is gamed only through good habits. Personals. Charles and Chester liobb have re turned to school after an absence of sev eral weeks with chicken-pox. Margaret Frost has been absent several days on account of illness. Olive Capron will go to Windsor to stay over the week-end. Mildred Hardy of the sophomore class has begun working afternoons in the Hol-stein-Friesian office. School Notes of Interest. Many of the high school pupits are working afternoons and Saturdays until Christmas. "The Goblins will get you if you don't watch out !" Midyears are coming, too. Let's be prepared for them, then they won't get us. How alKnit a few new songs and cheers for the basketball season? Why don't you gef" busy, seniors, juniors, sopho mores and freshmen V All out, girls, to watch the boys play basketball Friday evening. Remember, everybody, the boys aren't the only ones who can play basketball now! Monitors, attention ! l'.e sure you have the floor kept clean. The regular Wireless club meeting was held Thursday night. In Miss Jette's second year stenog raphy class the pupils are partly con ducting the class. For this week Mildred Greenwood and Olive Capron have been dictating at the rate of SO words a min ute to the class. Every one in the class will have a chance at this work evtnt ually. Mr. Page's two classes in community civics will have a Christmas party ami tree Tuesday evening. Names have been drawn and presents will be exchanged. Plans for the games and refreshments are being made by the committee, con sisting of Vivian Hunter. Ruth Ibigan. Teddy Plumb. William Williams, Mary Rugg and Evelyn Haskell. Miss Monroe's seventh period Junior English class had a very interesting oral day Thursday. The work was entirely under the direction of the class with Les ter ('bickering as chairman. Original Christinas essays, poems and stories were given. Resides these there were given Lowell's The First Snowfall and two short dialogues. The program was both educational and amusing and a great ileal of credit is due the pupils. The girls are planning to have a trial basketball game Friday evening, playing between the halves of the regular game with Winchester. This is something new. Come and see what the girls can do. (Masses in bookkeeping 1 hare ".started office routine work. This is extra work which is being accomplished this year. Members of the Commercial club will visit the Peoples National bank this afternoon. The girls' gymnasium class had a sup per in the Raptist church Wednesday evening. (James were played and a good time was enjoyed by everyone. The biology classes are studying the different uses and the importance of for ests. A reply to the challenge for a debate was received yesterday. Greenfield re gretted the fact that a senior-junior de bate was scheduled for that date. Also that they "had refused a debate with Northampton and could not ossibly ac cept one here. It is customary to hare French ::nd Commercial club meetings Wednesday evenings from 7..'0 to 1. .'. yet our prin cipal and teachers preach that every week day evening should be spent in concen trated study, with possibly the exception of Friday. While these may have their educational advantage why should these be made exceptions to the rule? If students are planning to make re views of subjects before midyear's this should not bo put off until a few days before the exams. We are now on the last lap of the half year, and our mark will be a measure of the work done. Cramming always results in confusion, so if you are uncertain about some points prepare now. The household management class this week has been studying the different outs, prices and uses of meat. Many of the pupils have had the opportunity to sh these different cuts and their prices at the markets. For the las- two weeks the work in French II has consisted of the outside study of the provinces of France. The class has been divided into teams each team working on a definite province or city. The captains of the various teams are as follows: Alsace-Lorraine. Archie Adams; La Provence. Rlanchc Dubey ; Ia P.retagne. John Russeil ; La Tour raine, Winifred Cain: two teams have been working on Paris with Charles Crosby and Madeline Weaver as cap tains. These captains have outlined the work for the members of I heir respective teams and have organized the material brought in. Many pictures have been brought in by way of illustration. Fol lowing is the schedule of reports: Thurs day, Dec. l.". Paris; Dee. 10. Provence; Doe. Tourraine; Dee. 20. Alsace-Lorraine: Dee. 111. Rrittanv. TALKS AT ASSEMBLY ON BASKETBALL Manager Wells Erges School to Rack I'p Team Harlow Ieads in Cheers Perkins and Mr. Caveiiy Seak Ravmond Wells, manager of the bas ketball team for ll21-22. gave a short speech yesterday urging the school to back up the team. lie spoke in the morning at assembly and stressed the oint that the team could not win alone but needed the support of every person in school to come through successfully. Harry 11. Harlow led the school in cheers for the team and told the school to go to the game and watch the team beat the Winchester team. John Perkins spoke a few words concerning the dance which will follow the game, and Mr. Caverly told the school that although, in the past, basketball had been a "secondary sport." it was up to the school to see that it was not made such this year. He then read a letter of encouragement and warning from "An Alumnus-," saying: "Pennington is out for the championship and seems likely to get it." The game this evening is the first game of the season. had been written. The Christmas tree was in charge of Charles Crosby. After the tree a game, the French version of Rlindman's Rluff. was played. Refresh ments were then served iii the domestic science room by Marjorie Pier and Eleanor Manley. Altogether the second 'meeting was a great success and the sophomores deserve a great deal of credit for the planning such an interesting meeting. riAYS RV FRENCH CLl'R. Second Meeting by Cercle Francais a Great Success. The second meeting of the Cercle Fran cais was held Wednesday evening in room -. The room had boon decorated with Christmas decorations for the meeting. After the formal opening of the meeting, two short sketches were given bv mem bers of French II A. The first of these , was Au Jardin Des Plantes a Paris, and 'had the following characters; Monsieur Rillot. Holland Smith: Felix, his nephew. Howard Lane; Angele, his niece. Mil- jlred Hardy; IAide Zxdogiuo. Archie Adams; 1'i.urs, John Russell; le singe, Frederick Knight. The second scene. La Dinette, had these characters: Leontine, Rlauche Dube; Auguste. John Russell; Madeline, the nurse. Winifred Cain; Madame Cl.ar penter, the mother, Ruth Knowlton Rth plays were unsually well given, the ferocious wild animals in the first scene being particularly effective and ter rifying, Retween the scenes several Christinas poems were read bv members of the club. j As "the roll was called by the secretary each member went to the Christmas tree to receive his present, upon which a motto DECEMBER DIAL CHRISTMAS NUMBER Decidedly . Cliristmasy Throughout and Contains Wealth of Stories, Notes, Jokes and Other Features. , The December Dial, which is issued next Wednesday.: is a Christmas number from cover to covet and promises to be of unusual interest. The cover is de cidedly' Cliristmasy, a? well as the edi torials, one of which is about Christinas Spirit and the other gives a suggestion for a New Year's resolution. The literary department contains a wealth of Christ mas stories and poems. Among the stories are The Dower, Grandpa's Christ mas, My Dream Lamp, Dreaming Dreams, and Wireless Carols something entirely new in the way of a Christmas storv. A new feature has been added to the literarrl department under the title, Parva Sed Apta. As the title signifies, the depart ment consists of short but pithy para graphs. This time most of them are about Christmas subjects. The school notes has the always inter esting calendar. As one person remarked: "The calendar is the feature I always turn to first, just like the funny sheet in the paper." An article describing the teacher-training course is particularly well written and instructive. ' The French department is very unusual ; it contains several translations of French Christmas stories and jM.ems, as well as au account of the French holidays received in a letter from France. The jokes contain an amusing parody on The Night Refore Christmas, sugges tions for Christmas presents, fresh-nan letters to Santa Claus. and a particularly clever paragraph entitled A Jazzy Ro mance. Resides many other local jokes there is a second and conclusive install ment of the Who's Who department. The exchange department carries out the Christmas idea in a novel and clever way. The alumni and athletics depart ments also carry out the Christmas idea. The alumni department contains, besides a very interesting letter from Miss Ran ney, a letter from an alumnus describing a Christmas in France during the war. The athletics department pays some com pliments to the football men under the title of Christmas Cards to the Football Men. The Christinas Dial will be distributed in school Wednesday upon receipt of the class dues receipts. It will lo on sale at the di'Kt news stand and R rooky House pharmacy as usual.
