The snlendid attendance at the basket ball game last Friday evening is a great encouragement t( Jhe team and to the coach. I'sually the fans don't get inter ested until two or more games have been played, but the crowd at this opening game of the season certainly was contrary to custom. It is an example to many present students to fee so many of the alumni at the gane. Many of these pupils would not want it known that these graduates had more- faith in the team than they themselves. The team has proved in this first game that basketball will no longer be a minor sport in school. The school must back them in this determination just as the football team was backed. The school drum and bugle corps deserves great credit for its part Friday evening. lSi.it let us have a larger number of pupils in the cheering section at the next home JUNIOR ENGLISH CLUB GIVES TWO PLAYS Pre- Gretna.
