' I Item* About Faculty and Student Ac
Heme 8tudy Neceaaary For Successful
High School Work I
1 . For successful work in lour sub1.
jecte in the high school, from two to
three hours of regular and systematic
home study are necessary. With the
E'~ adoption of the supervised study in
the high school the amount of home
study could be reduced some. How- i
ever, the object of the supervised i
. study Is to aid and direct the pupil I
In starting his work properly and to
assist him In learning more economl- i
Vv'Y* Parents should see to it that defies
mite hours for home study are provided
} land that these hours are strictly ad-1
. hered to by the pupils. The habit
of having definite times for this study
.'In the homes will do much toward
jEV making the work successtul in the ,
high achool. Wherever possible, a
regular study room In the homes where
quiet can be maintained should he proi
sided. It Is observed that in cases
whnra ni.ntla An utnSv nl' D.-nnliiia
I and there-are many who do. these
are the students who make tine progress
In their work. Every student is ,
assigned sufficient work to keep lilni
huBy at home for one and one-half or I
two hours each day. If the high school
building were not crowded and better I
study hall accommodations could be j
| providod pupils would he kept in
school for study longer in the afternoon.
It is to be hoped that we get1

How much money does the parent,
need to give the boy or girl who at. |
- tends High school?
? Too much money given to hoys or |
" girls of high school uge lor spending!
is unwise. Boys and girls who arc
lavish in their unnecessary expenditures
set a bad example for others in
the high school. The following items
should be considered as necessary expenditures:
Books provided some second-handed
hooks are purchased perhaps
would amount to five dollars tor
othe year; stationary Including pencils,
!paper, etc., one dollar if care and ecou'omy
is exercised; class dues not more
then twenty-five cents for the year.
'Additional expenditure can he niadn
for entertainments, athletic games.
>, -membership dues in organizations. thi?
?i\,- amount depending largely upoli the injV
dividual. It is deemed advisable lor
Istudents to belong to tin more than
one or two student organizations. In
US ;the Junior and Senior years some adlb!--.
Mitional expense is incurred for the
p - year book, Maple Leaves, class pins
and"commencement invitations, class
pinB can bo purchased for $1.75 or
fV, -$2.00 and invitations for 5%c a piece.
^Generally it is advisable to encourage
;. ftyoung people to earn a part of their
i?>, '.expenses while in high school. The
yhigh school principal informs tiie writfeft
i'cer of two Senior boys who have earnjj.fed
-money to pay most of their ex'A'
,:;J"51I80B while in high school for the
before mentioned and when they j
- graduate next June each will have -a
8?, neat little sum in the hat k. These
boys do good school work and are pop-1
j . >' nlar members of their class. Students :
i are discouraged in coming to school\
on dress parade. Cleanliness and neat-]
' ft nesB'are encouraged; flashiness and
t extreme modern styles are discourse-1
ed. The most sane and sensible girls
"are plain and simple in their dress.
If parents at -any time think their
ijii, ' boys or girls are asking for too much
f 'money for school purposes a talk
>with the high school principal might
rhe helpful both to the school auu to
