"Initiative is that human characteris tic in which the will to do and the cour age to dare have their origin and heing. It Is the mainspring of accomplishment and the keynote of progress. Initiative has been the outstanding factor in the lives and works of those persons whose names are indissolubly linked with the highest and best in human achievement." Thus speaks Clarence E. Edwards, one of America's most eminent men. The will to do and the courage to dare! That is what makes the world go round ; this is what keeps the edifice of human accomplishment from falling to the ground, and not only does it support the edifice but it also builds anew and keeps on building in greater or less de gree according to the amount of initia tive borne in the human mind. Famous persons for initiative have al most invariably given evidence of it in early years. It grows with them. They do not suddenly blossom forth into hu man marvels of accomplishment. Then surely the place for showing initiative is in the school, the place where we prepare for citizenship, the place where we prepare for future life in the world. If we do not show initiative in the school, we will not show it in after life unless some phenomenon of realiza tion occurs equal to a great, all-stirring earthquake which is very unlikely. There are various ways of showing initiative in school; and various quali ties, if absent, must be developed, among which are fearlessness of ridicule, quick perception of opportunities, willingness to work and work hard, willingness to accept all tasks for the furtherance of community spirit and welfare. It is particularly important to show initiative in the class room. F?e always wide-awake, alert, vigilant. Watch for opportunities to make worthwhile recita tions, try to keep your interest alive. If you do. you will help just so much to ward keeping someone else's interest alive. Also consider the teacher whose mission it is to instill learning to aid us in the development of the brain. If we do not show initiative, if we do not pay attention, if we are interested in a hundred' other subjects of no importance, we make it very hard for ihe teacher who is trying very hard to help us. . We should pay attention, else we should not come to the class room to bother others who wish to learn. If everyone should show initiative, what wonderful classes we might have ! A teacher feels that his time and effort is wasted when a class continues to Im uproarious. He feels that the pupils have little respect and little desire to learn. Above all things don't sit back with an Oh, let George do it" attitude. That never makes for initiative. If 'George" said the same thing, the school would be a school of "dumb-bells."- lo your part and the work will get done. Never leave it to the other fellow. In every community, organization, or group there are always a certain few who do all the work. Theirs is the glory and the pleasure, too, else they would not do it. If each person did his part there would be many instead of a few of these and the community would Ik: a model ; as it is, the majority lack initiative and the minority continue to labor. Even in the school, where initiative is most needed, the "bunch" system pre vails, the few do the work. What is to be done to eliminate this evil? Develop initiative. Learn the pleasure which comes of working for work's sake and the rewards which work brings. Develop the spirit of "Go and Get It!" LOCAL NEWS PHYSICS CLASSES VISIT DAM. Guide Accompanies Party Over the Works at Whitingham. The two physics classes went Mon day by automobile to Whitingham to study the great earth dam which is to be the largest in the world. The pro ject includes an earth dam 1.200 to 1.4(H) feet thick at the base, 50 feet at the top. and 20O feet higher than the level of the present river bed: a tunnel 1,500 feet long which carries the river around this dam. making it possible for the men to work in the former river bed; a sluice-way or penstock to carry the water four miles over the hills to the power station at Sherman; the raising of the railroad tracks, now beside the river, to a height beyond the reach of the waters; the rebuilding of roads which are main thoroughfares between Wilmington, Whitingham and other surrounding towns; the tearing down of houses and rebuilding them elsewhere; the cuttin" of the timber which will be destroved bv the water. This creat earth last May and to be finished in i25 is being built in three sections. the two outer sections being just dumped in. loose, while the center section is washed by hydraulic pressure, this latter mak ing the whole dam very strong. On this trip, the physics classes wee able to see examples of the appliance of physics, some of which are: The use of steam, pulleys, fulcrum and levers, com pressed air. livdmiilii- n nllo ,... t haps the parts of the work most inter esting to the classes were the enormous preciation class or not.

' Much enthusiasm was nronsed at a sjvecial assembly Friday, which took the form of a spirited football rally. The arrival of Mr. Moran and Attorney Paul Chase, who made many appropriate sug gestions and remarks concerning this year's football season, created hearty ap plause on the part of the student; body. Mr. Moran stated that his relation with the school was the same that it has been in the past that of a loyal sup porter of every activity in Iirattleboro high school. Mr. Chase gave a very forceful talk which caused many students to think a little more seriously alout football con ditions. He took for his subject The Spirit of the Team and the Spirit of the School, showing first of all the necessity of a good cheering section for the success of the team, and remarked how fine it would be if half the enthusiasm with which Mr. Moran and he were welcomed could he shown on the football field. In speaking of the team's spirit and atti tude, the speaker gave many suggestions and friendly criticisms. "Don't furnish alibis. The people of the town are tired of having excuses for your defeats ; there is no disgrace in a defeat provided the team has worked hard, oljeyed the rules, and played a good game." . In concluding, Mr. Chase said in part to the men on the team: "Play hard, play fair, play fast, play clean; don't give up; le gentlemen; and, above all. don't furnish alibis." Senior Classes See Macbeth. About 40 members of the senior Eng lish classes and several members of the faculty went by automobile to Spring field, Mass., Friday afternoon to see Robert Mantell. who was playing Mac beth at- the Court Square theatre Friday evening. Most of the cars left the school build ing shortly after 2 o'clock, arriving in Springfield early enough to go about the city and see some of the places of inter est. ISome of the pla'-es visited were the public library, the Y. W. C. A., Bay Path Institute, and the Commercial high school. The play was well worth seeing, and was enjoyed very much by the audience. Mr. Mantell showed marked talent in his interpretation of Macbeth, and Miss Genevieve Hamper as Lady Macbeth was excellent. The minor characters were nearly all extremely good. Perhaps one of the best was Macduff, played by John Alexander, who was a fine man and a noble patriot. Another excellent actor was Edward Lewers. who played the part f the drunken irter and caused a laugh at a time when the atmosphere was tense with emotion and terror. The three witches were indeed terrifying with their cracked voices and their weird rhantings. The play was excellent on the whole, the actors were fine, and everyone felt well paid for Seeing it. The senior English classes have been studying this well-known Shakesperean play, and are rehearsing scenes to be given in class. For this reason, seeing the presentation in Springfield was doubly beneficial. Scliool Notes of Interest. Last Friday, as usual, programs bear ing on the subject of journalism were given in each of Miss Craig's junior Eng lish classes. Madeline Weaver was chairman in the third period class and the following progrnm was carried out: General contents of a newspaper (Sun day edition), Madeline Weaver; sum mary and criticism of an editorial. Rob ert Eddy: summary of a dramatic sketch, Mildred Hardy: summary of current events article. Roy Carpenter; a talk on illustrations of .the newspaper.

The campaign for Dial subscriptions as yet has not been as successful as the members of The Dial board had expected it would be. Only about ISO subscrip tions have been received, but it is hoped that at least 200 subscriptions will be obtained. Here is a chance for the townspeople and the alumni of B. II. S. to show their interest in the school by patronizing its most representative activ ity. Subscribe for The Dial now if you have not already done so. The cataloguing of the English library in room 0 is nearly completed. One shelf contains special plays, another shelf reference books for juniors or sopho mores who are studying poetry; and there is one shelf where stories written by the same authors as the short stories which the freshmen are now reading may be found. Elizabeth Schwenk, president of the French club, recently made an appeal to all memlers of the French club who are interested in singing French songs to get together and learn some new songs for French club. Miss Whittemore has kindly consented to assist in learning new songs. Members of French 1 1 1-A are finding the study of Les Oberle very interesting. The story is illustrative of the family trials and difference of opinion result ing from the German occupation of Alsace 50 years ago.

The Grotto is in the Ardennes region of Bel gium and is 1"0 meters below the earth's surface. This phenomenon was formed by a stream, one of those whose entire course lies lieneath the surface. Crystals of many and gorgeous colors are predomi-' nant, as well as weird rock formations and smaller caves. The. river is narrow and twisting, but in some places deep enough for boats. This is traversed by paths and bridges fo that it is possible to travel it throughout. Various parts are named for mythical parts of the Greek kingdom, and of the underworld. This Grotto has become one of the lead ing attractions for tourists in Belgium. I Pimliaii! CLUBS French Club Tomorrow Night.

It has been definitely decided to offer a course in harmony study in the high school provided enough pupils enroll for this class to make the proposition worth while. Miss Hawley will teach this course, which will be a continuation of the music appreciation class which Mr. Braman organized last year.

Greenfield was more than a little sur prised at the outcome of the game, set ting the score at a margin of 7(M), but fulling short about SM points, the final score being 20-0 in their favor. This game was a snappy exhibition of football, both teams fighting for every inch of the ground gained throughout the entire four periods, many times coming dangerously near to a touchdown. Brattleboro was very effective on its punting, and showed a much superior brand of playing in every way over their previous game with Springfield. The team is ready to "pull down" its next victory Saturday, when it plays the aggregation from Amherst. A good game is expected, as Amherst has a fighting squad and we know the ability of the local eleven. J. F. AUSTIN Store Closed Saturday, Nov. 11, Armistice Day. CATHOLIC WOMEN TO MEET.

The fact remains that you seldom have a cold with out constipation, due to general congestion. The only way to avoid colds is to keep up your vitality. You usually catch cold in1 the winter if you are run down. Therefore in cold weather exercise more; eat more fatty foods; drink four to six glasses of water a day; keep the head cool, the feet warm, the bowels open. You are also less liable to colds H" your system is free from the intestinal "poisons of constipation, so empty the bowels regularly with a plain A'egetable laxative like Dr. Caldwell's' Syrup Pepsin. few - ANT FAMILY MAY TRY IT FREE Thousands of parents are asking themselves, "Where can I find a trust worthy laxative that anyone in the family can use ushen constipated?"
