Among the questions discussed at
the Boosters' clpb last Tuesday
night was Abat of forming a base
ball league -with tne towns of Kem
merer, Diai^ondviUe. Cokeville, Soda
Springs. Grace and Bancroft, snd
having games on Wednesday after
noon. As the committee which was
previously appointed to correspond
with the towns mentioned, had re
ceived a reply from only one town,
Chairman Williams was authorised
to appoint a committee of three to
visit these towns and ascertain if
there is any probability of organls
ing a league. *
The committee appointed on new
road to the cemetery reported that
this matter was well In hand and
that road would be constructed thi.
The Fourth of July committee re
ported that deuil, wens grad-ally
being worked out for the célébra
tlon, and that a general meeting of
all the committees would be held

The chair appointed a committee

had been submitted and to select
therefrom three and from these three

to be used. After carefully eone'd
Wednesday President Wilson ea
bled a call for a special seasion of
. congress to convene Monday, May
19. but the pres'dent will not be to
Washington on the opening day.
ertoc the thirty or more slogans, the
committee decided none were an »ta
ble, and recommended that the con
test be left open another month.
The committee's recommendation
waa adopted, so there is still an op
portunity for some one to win the

are expecting to do work this summe*
to Complete the requirements for
/graduation. If this is done they will
be given diplomas this fall.
Most of the students have worked
diligently during the short time they
have been permitted to attend
school this year. This is especially
true of the two upper classes. When
opportunity was granted them to do
home work during the quarantine.
they took advantage of it and worked i
faithfully. Many of them have com- !
pleted a full year's work in spite of
being in actual-attendance but half I
a year, and we feel to commend them
for their exceptional diligence. i

Some few have an idea that thi. ;ed

Imagined. On registration day last

were true American dtisens. . They
have subscribed one hundred per cent
membership to the Junior Red Cross
In every Instance and have done two
or more "clean up" days daring the i
year where the pupils have done ;
much toward bettering appearance of
the grounds. In the high school the
atudents have indulged somewhat In
athletics though thin has been quite
limited. They have had several class
and inter-class debates, put on a very j
creditable school play, had two very
successful dances, several social par- i r
ties In the school building, furnished '
the local paper with school notes j
nearly every week, Indulged inf sevqy-1
al essay and speaking contests aad
have had several excellent student
body programs. In view of these
things and many others not mention

lines is without foundation. We be
lieve in this reaped that we rank fk
vqyabiy with other schools of the
same size. Right here let us urge
that all the patrons and friends boost
for the schools, boost for education
in general and especially for educa-j
