On Tuesday two special assemblies
were held in the two assembly rooms
of the high school. The boys of the
two high schools met in the assembly
hall, while the girls of the Senior
high school assembled in the smaller
auditorium. Two topics were dis
cussed in the boys room. First the
notification from the States Attorney
that the law prohibiting the use of
tobacco on the public streets would
be enforced and asked their co-oper
ation for the suppression of the sale
of tobacco and, Second, foot ball
for the year. Mr. Hauge, manager of
the school athletics, laid out the
plans for the foot ball season. Mr.
Clayton, of the commercial depart
ment stressed certain values that are
characteristic of athletics and Mr.
Brown of the Science department em
phasized the necessity of holding up
one's work to proper standards. Mr.
White also spoke. There is full confi
dence that the foot ball season will be
the best the high school has ever
The girls in the assembly discuss
ed Red Cross Plans for the organiza
tion of a Junior Red Cross as an aux
ilary of the Williston Branch. The
Red Cross organization is origina

probable that one or more of our
schools will undertake to get the re
quired standards. Two matters arc
now planned for the high school stu
dents. In the morning, Mrs. Winter
field of the mathmatics department
will instruct a class of girls in the
making of surgical dressings and
supplies. In the afternoon another
group of girls will learn to knit and
to help in the preparation of hospital
garments and other supplies, this
class being under the direction of Mrs.
Craig and other members of the adult

Sufficient vaccine is now reported
in the offices of all physicians and all
those school pupils who have not done
so should attend to this as soon as
possible. While it is probable that
the loss of a few days of school will
accompany the vaccination it is prob
ably better to have this done before
cold weather sets in.
Attention is again called to the
tuition rate for all pupils in the
grades whose homes are not in the
Williston special school district. The
rate is $2.00 per month for each
pupil payable in advance. No tuition
is charged in the high school except
for pupils whose homes are in some
Miss Nelson, one of the second
grade teachers of the Westlawn
school is unable to be at her work
because of the loss of her voice. In
her absence Mrs. McLean is in charge
of her room.
Attention is once more called to the
fact that only pupils who are six
years of age or more on or before
the first tff January, 1918, are eligible
to enter school this fall. There is nc
advantage gained for children by
placing them in school where they
must compet with older children-:

now complete and all classes are well
in hand. All domestic science and
I manual training classes, have been
organized and with the return of
Miss Cooper and music and art work
of the schools has also started It is
urged that all parents and those in
terested in the welfare of any child
or children will keep in close touch
with the advancement of the chil
dren. It is to be remembered that
children do not fail in school work at
the end of the school year. School
failure is the result of inferior day
by day work and in many instances
this can be avoided by close co-opera
tion between the school interests and
the home interests. The superinten
tendent and teachers are willing at
any time to talk school business with
all parents and all are cordially wel
come to the school at any time.
High School-Alumi Foot Ball Game
On Friday afternoon of this week
at four o'clock the first foot ball
game of the season is to be played
at the ball park. The admission to
the game is 35c for adults, 20c for
high school students and 10c for school
pupils. As the line up of the high
school team is the same as last year

The plans for foot ball are more
comprehensive than ever before and
include larger games than have ever
before been undertaken. There is rea
son for the confidence that the local
boys will have a very good chance for
the championship of the state and a
schedule looks towards two or three
The reason for this confidence will
be shown by the fact that the boys
play the first game on Friday after
noon and it is believed that a large
attendance will give the team the en
couragement of a good send off.
