WILLISTON SCHOOLS The serious purpose of many of the older students is worthy of commen dation. Two of the Seniors of last year "kept house" for themselves through out the year. An interestingly large number of the graduates of last year are teach ing school this fall. During the absence of Miss Con nolly of the Junior High School, Mrs. McLean assisted in the Junior High School. Two of the boys of high school are undertaking the novel plan of "batch ing" and fighting the H. C. of L. in this way. The shower baths of the Senior High School are being largely used and much appreciated by the foot ball squads this fall. The faculty of the Senior High School are planning for class organ ization soon and for the annual inter class totem poll contest. In honor of Albert Guggedahl, Mr. and Mrs. White entertained on Tues day evening the men of the faculty, Mr. Brown, Mr. Clayton and Mr. Hauge, at a six o'clock dinner. More pupils are already seated in the Senior High School than at any time in last year, and the enrollment of last year was larger than any pre ceding year. The new teachers as well as those who have been with the school in oth er years, are all entering into the spirit of the work splendidly, and a satisfactory degree of actual accom plishment has already been made. Miss Torsen of the domestic science department is establishing the prac ticability of that department by the serving of noon day lunches. At pres-1 ent several of the teachers are avail ing themselves of this opportunity. The early part of this week has| seen a rather unusual number of I absences the^ prime cause being cinaCion, while considerable cause was the Jewish New Year Holiday and in a few cases the hunting open ing. The two graded schools are experi menting with the division recess— leaving a few teachers free each day from recess duty. This always leaves a minimum of three teachers however and all recesses are supervised as heretofore. It is probable that the high schools will carry out their plans of a serpen- SHOW NUMBER 4 TtttKTO IPPODROM Vaudeville FRIDAY Four Splendid Acts That You Can't Afford to Miss Performances at 3, 7:30 aiH 9:30 Prices Matinee 10-25e Evening 25-35c Soldiers at Childrens Prices SEPT. 21 Come Early and Get a Good!

It had been planned to parade in honor of the Alumni game, but the rain prevented. In the Junior High School consider able absence has been caused by vac cination, and sore arms are quite in absence among many attending. Oscar and Alma Carlson have been absent from the 7A Class, their ab sence being caused by the death of their mother. The sympathy of their class mates is extended to them. A rather large number of students are now working in various positions for their room and board. The su perintendent will be pleased to keep on file a list of all other available places whereby pupils may help work their way thru the schools. The advancement of pupils is most readily seen of course in the first grades. It is surprising to those not acquainted with the primary accom plishments, how many words, and phonic sounds and sentences the lit tle folks have already mastered. Among the former students plan ning for college this fall are Esther Rawitsher who attends the Univer sity of North Dakota, Emmet Dig gens who starts his course in Den tistry at Creighton, Ralph Greengard of the University of Minnesota, Er win Bruegger of the University of Wisconsin, Frank O'Laughlin of the University of North Dakota and Min nie Rawitcher of Fargo Business Col lege. Pupils whose homes are within the state of North Dakota are not charg ed any tuition in the high school. However, in the grades and Junior High School, all pupils whose homes are not within the limits of the Wil liston Special School District are sub ject to the regular tuition fee of two dollars a month, payable in advance. Next week closes the first month of school, and all tuition charges should be cared for within this time. As has been indicated several times before, every pupil of the schools, re gardless of age or grade should at tend at once to vaccination. While vac"jsome little leniency has been shown because of the late receipt of the mandate concerning vaccination, there has been sufficient time now for t'.ll preparations to have been completed. The regulations require "recent vac cination." A physician's certificate as proof of "recent vaccination" will be accepted. The schools will not at present undertake to define the mean ing of "recent vaccination" but it probably should cover a period net greater thain six or seven years. Subscribe for the Graphic.

Pan FNt CHURCH RECEPTION The reception given at the Congre gational Church last Friday evening for the teachers and other new resi dents of the city was well attended in spite of the rainy weather. After a hand-shaking which filled the func tion of a receiving line without its formality the gymnasium room was turned into an audience chamber and a program presented in the form of a series of musical pictures. With the lights turned off, save for the soft glow of a piano and a library lamp,—Grandmother sits and dreams over the days gone by, seeing herself at various stages of her existence. As a wee girl, Willis Claire Monroe appeared and sang a dear little Sun day School song. School Days was represented by Mary Batten, who sang the song of that name. As a happy college girl Miss Wolbert, in outdoor costume, and armed with a tennis racket, sanjj a rollicking col lege glee to her own accompaniment. The society girl in dainty party gown was taken by Helen Wold, who sang "The Valley of Laughter." Then came the bride, Mrs. Pauline Husebye, with Mrs. Bond's lovely song, "I Love You Truly." The busy house wife next appeared in most attrac tive house-gown,—not too busy to take up her violin and play "Home, Sweet Home." This role was filled by Mrs. M. B. Jackson. The mother with her lullaby to her child as she rocks her to sleep was taken by Mrs. F. P. Bergman, who sang "Little Boy FSlue" to her daughter Claudia. Final ly Grandmother herself,—Miss Bald win. in a gown which has been hand ed down through four generations,— roused from her reverie and sang as a fitting close "Love's Old Sweet Song." Partners for the refreshment hour were found by means of first lines of old songs cut in halves, and after all were served an informal good time followed. WEDS IN SOUTH Announcements were received here yesterday by friends of C. G. Per sonious of his marriage to Marie Louise Champion of Mercedes, Texas. Mr. Personious was formerly con nected with the Orpheum Theatre of this city leaving for the south with Company E boys who reported for duty on the Mexican border. When the company returned, he re mained with the theatre there, and the announcement made yesterday came as a pleasant surprise to friends here who will wish him and his bride the best there is on earth.
