S. entering the building proper one not help but be impressed with In a recent letter to the principle of the High School, President Duni way, President of the University of Wyoming, emphasises the opinion that Dawson County High ranks with any school of its kind in the Uuited States and from the work that is being done should be accredited in any Collage or University in the country. Under the tutelage o f Professor Hunt vrho has recieved his degrees from a very prominent Uni versity in the East and whose ex perience in this line of work makes it possible for him to utilize to the best advantages the modern facilities afforded in the High School. Upon can the regularity and system that is every where apparent. Every corridor is a display, every class room is most inviting. Aside from the numerous class rooms that are equipped with all the facilities necessary to the promotion of collegate work, is a very commodious assembly room in which the pupils are given to learn their work. In an adjoining! room is a well equipped library con taining both reference books, his torical works, poetry and the leading classics of English literature. A full academic course of four years is necessary in order that a student may be rewarded with the necessary diploma entitling him or her to enter upon a professional career in a university. The corn mercial course as manifested by the recent work, is one which would do credit to any university. During the past two weeks some of the class have established very valuable re cords both upon the typewriter as well as in the study of short hand. The labratory can safely be said to be as well equipped as many in our colleges. Everything is systematized so that the pupil may lay his hand o n any necessary instruisent o r chemical at a moments notiee. Aside from chemistry, is a department de voted to Biology which many are interested in. The facilities afforded for mental training are no less than in other de partments. On the first door of the building is a comodious gymnasium which affords plenty of opportunity for the enuberant youth t© extend himself.
