Majority 961 HIGH SCHOOL NOTES. In order to instruct the pupils as to the manner of voting at the polls a sham election was held in the high school Tuesday. The boys and girls both were allowed to vote. At each period judges and clerks were chosen, who went down to the office where the voting was carried on, and then the pupils went down a few at a time until all had voted. Out of the 140 voters only one ballot was thrown out, in spite of the fact that this was the first time the pupils ever voted in a sham election, showing that the pupils evidently profited by the instructions given them on Monday by Mr. Nearpass. It is doubtful whether the real election revealed as small a per cent of spoiled ballots. Another interesting feature is that only twenty-two straight tickets were voted, showing that the pupils even mastered the intricacies of the split ticuet. As to the results, the Republi can ticket won with the exception of Messrs. Griffin and Weaklen, and Miss Fallgatter. The physiology classes dissected two cats Tuesday morning for the purpose of studying the internal organs. The senior class must be a dead one. At least their pennant was seen flying at half-mast last week. The managerof the basket ball team is busy arranging the schedule for this year.
