Frolics Versus School Work.
Will sociables, entertainments
and frolics in the community aid

%Work in the schools of that com
munity? This is a question that
should address itself to this and
any other oommunity that is en
deavoring to maintain a good
school. Some may get the idea
that if the high school student
reaches his classes on time and
devotes an hour or two at night
toward the preparation of his lee
sons for the following day right
along from Monday till Friday, it
matters little what that student
does or how the time is employed
fro Friday till Monday. There
never was a more fatal error.

may have the most competent and
hard working principal in the
State, but unless the community
lends cooperation the money spent
to run the school had just about

the high school is concerned. If
the homes of the town expect to
throw the doors open to sociables
and entertainmPnts two or three
times a week, and if the parents
of the students permit the at
tendance of the student to every
invitation to a "party", an atmos
phere of frolic and play is broad
east and the students, and many
of the teachers themselves, soon
fall into the stride of just having
a good time. The foundation fr

When we were at war every

that as the one big thing to work

term everybody ought to keep in
mind the best interest of the stu

atmosphere for careful study,
and to aid them in thorough

community. When a child or a
student fails the teachers are
blamed. When a high school
graduate takes the teacher's ex

Whenever you present to the
minds of boys and girls Saturday
evening "parties" on top of the
English and Mathematics of the

day's work on Chemistry and
philosophy with an automobile
excursion, whenever you offer
the rudiments and principals of
education as set forth in the text
books and as expounded by the
classroom teacher to the mind of
the student and then permit the
enchanting whisperings of the
"sweetheart" to the ear of that
student, it is needless to prophesy
