The people fnoun of the community should be very lent proud that the school now owns one the 4 additional piano. Miss Rogers is go- also ing forward with the work. and Supt. Arnette predicts for our school ers a very successful year. He said that fact the order was 100 per cent better than of it it had been and that the spirit of both ful 1 teachers and pupils was good. On the whole he seemed to be greatly pleased with the work. You will be glad to hear that Welsh won a victory Monday afternoon in que the Basket Ball game. The official farn score was 18 for Welsh and 16 for own _ Jennings. pan Well regulated, good wholesome pani athletics is good for the school, but dtte no pupil should neglect his regular st chool work to take part in athletics. No pupil can take part in any game Si who does not make a general average Loa of 75 per cent on all of his work. This rule will be rigidly enforced. iM Our percentage of attendance for prei the first month was 93. Our enroll- in t ment the first day was more than we thei enroled last year.

We have never been able to secure a sec ond grade teacher. Mrs. Martin is p waiting for someone to take the work. of Something must be done now. The situation is ba:d. Can someone offer a - suggestion? Who can take Mr. Free man's place? Mr. Arnette seems to be arr doing all he can to relieve the situ- mCe ation. M This is Welsh week. We won in the r Basket Ball game ,over Lake Arthur boa Thursday afternoon. The score stood vis 25 to 11 in favor of Welsh. A 'ittle ' judicious practice every day counts - much in winning the ball games. Three cheers for Welsh High School. Yours to serve, Wm. A. McGuff. Parent-Teacher Association.

See Hood & Colbert.. 011-tf to Some one has taken the lawn mow- ai er and other tools away from Oaklawn ce ir- Cemetery and neglected to return if he them to their place. It is not pos- e' ly sible that any human who has visions tl Ir. beyond the vale of death would steal w m- from a graveyard, thus jeopardizing n ýy- their chances for peaceful eternal rest, 1. he therefore the said tools must have 1, just been borrowed and .forgot to be mr returned. The Cemetery Committee is not the least interested in romantic A tf theories, and therefore insists that the missing tools be returned promptly to p their place, otherwise there is going ,re to be investigation, and probably dis Lz., comfort for someone who is negligent. ng Whoever has the tools should return for them at once. se- - _ nd Emmet Hinchee left Wednesday for Ill- Arkansas, where he went to purchase a car load of apples to fill orders which he took during the first of the week.
