Impromptu Dance Last Friday evening the members •of the High School enjoyed a very pleasant evening at a dance in the -gymnasium. The affair was of quite an impromptu nature but this very fact seemed to foster a spirit of con geniality and informality. It is oc casions of this sort that enable the teachers and students to get togeth er on a social basis and which also afford opportunities for the student body to become better acquainted, there have been several parties of this type this year to which we look 'back with happy reminiscence and there are still others coming toward which we have high anticipation. Knitting Party Last week Mrs. A. C. Clayton en tertained the High School Teachers with an informal knitting party. Despite the low temperature without, there was warmth and cordiality within, which was thoroughly and heartily enjoyed by all.

This report is interesting because it shows that all are working en thusiastically toward making our school a Junior Red Cross in action and not in name only. s» Girls Bisket Ball A couple of weeks ago Miss Tor son called a meeting of all girls in terested in basket ball and gave them the schedule and a few points in play ing and what rules we should play. The girls meet every Monday and Wednesday night after school. Each class has a team and we are prac tising for interclass games. Friday the Sophomore girls are go ing to play against a team picked from the Senior, Junior and Fresh man teams. Come and see a good game. The Sophomore English Classes have been making weekly pilgrimages to the Library each Monday when Miss Baldwin has very kindly and carefully given an hour lecture upon the Use of the Library, including the use of the Library Catalogue "and the Library Syste min general. This* is of value not only in using this Li bAry bat it opens up the avenues of access to any Library in the United States and the classes appreciate Miss Baldwin's kindness in giving both the instruction and her time. A letter to. friends here from Mrs. McClellan (Mabel Connoly) states that she and her husband are enjoy ing a fine trip through California and various points in the West. They ex pect to return to their home in Ne braska by March 15th. Robert Garrison left this week for his new home in Grand Forks. We are sorry to lose him from our num ber at High School but trust that he will find a cordial welcome there. Saturday1 was Ground Hog day and according to the old tradition we will have six weeks of winter. We are hoping, however, that Kaiser "Wil helm" saw his shadow too and that when he sees how he appears in the eyes of the world that he will go un derground for good. The members of the Public Speak ing Class are seen in various atti tudes these days,—some look wise and dignified, others pale and shiver ing,. but we attribute it all to the fact that they made their debut on Tues day—and the speeches were evident ly effective ones. The Camp Fire Girls A Camp Fire Club for girls was organized last Fall with Miss New lander as Guardian. A preliminary meeting was held at Evelyn Leonhardy's where all girls interested in the Club attended and the work of the Camp Fire was made plain so that the girls might know what the purpose of the organization is. At the next meeting we organized, Miss Newlandej acting as chairman pro tempore, the names of the girls who wished to join were given to Miss Newlander and were sent in to the Camp Fire organization and Manuals were also sent for. At the next meeting the following officers were elected: Thrift in 1918 THE NATIONAL THRIFT DAY OBSERVANCE of Monday opened a new Thrift year for millions and inil- THIS COMMUNTIY TOOK A FULL SHARE in the ob servance, and in congratulating Williston residents upon their enthusiastic response, our officers wish, for each, financial progress during the coming Thrift year.

Madolin Andrews—Secretary. Aleda Jacobson—Treasurer, and the name "Sunset" was chosen for the Camp Fire. While this organization may seem absurb at the present time, its object is to Seek Beauty, Giye Service, Pur sue Knowledge, Be Trustworthy, Hold on to Health, Glorify Work and Be Happy. We also have a w»r pro gram—The slogan being "Work thru the Homes." 1. Pray that the right may triumph in this war. 2. Work 30 minutes daily. 3. Save food. 4. Do Red Cross Work. The girls are carrying out this pro gram to the fullest extent and do Red Cross work at their meetings. At the present time we have ten members. Jan. 14th the Camp Fire Girls had a surprise party for one of their members Janice Kleinsorge. The fore part of the evening was spent at the show, enjoying the pic ture "A Man Without a Country." After the show we returned to the Kleinsorge home where a delicious lun6h awaited us. At eleven the girls wended their way home wishing Janice many more happy birthdays. This group of girls are very en thusiastic and will surely hold their place with the Boy Scouts. The Senior Debate Monday evening#at 8 P. M. a de bate was held in the High School Au ditorium. The Contestants were six members of the Senior English class. The subject for debate was "Should the United States Government Hold and Operate the Railroads?" The affirmative was upheld by Allen Kelt ner, Glen Houston and Ruth Asbury, the negative by Leonard Poe, Clifford Gordon and Una Morhead. The affirmative side was opened by Allen Keltner and the negative by Leonard Poe. Each contestant had a chance for rebuttal. From the great amount of mater ial given, one can realize the careful study of the question and the length of time for preparation. Both sides were upheld to the great est strength by each contestant and the Judges— Mr. Brown, Miss R. Jones and Mr. White, had to consider the points carefully. The decision was in favor of the affirmative. Jokes Pupil (At High School Dance,"wax ihg floor)—Ah! the holes in this can are too small.

School Editorial Madolin Andrews THE RUSSIAN WOMAN OF TODAY We hear much about the 'Russian woman today in war and other ac tivities. Her progress to better things has been a subject of admira tion for many years. Now she holds a high place in her own country and is making rapid strides toward free dom and equality. In order to under stand how marvelous her progress has been it is necessary to,consider the types of 'Russian women, their former conditions and what has been done to uplift them. There are in Russia today two dis tinct types of women, Peasant and Intellectual, each type working in its own way to better itself. About seventy five per cent of the women of Russia are peasants, and eighty seven per cent of these can neither read or write. They have been for many years degraded, downtrodden and benumbed with work. With no education, no chance for betterment, they sank deep into carelessness and despair. With the onward trend of the Russian affairs, the peasant women began to realize their worth and to take more interest in their work. Certain movements were started which first made the peasant woman look for the better things in life. The Czar abolished drinking houses where the peasants gathered in the even ings, and in their stead Were erected recreational centers and rest rooms, where all meet and exchange ideas in an atmosphere of cleaniihess, Cheer fulness and friendliness. WILLISTON GRAPHIC Largely thru the efforts of the in tellectual class schools have been started for the peasants. It is apthetic to note how eagerly and earnestly they strive to learn, and what sacri fices they make in order'to send the children to school. In some schools sewing, baking, and other househpld arts are taught, and as a result, the average peasant woman is becoming mori tidy, clean and capable in house hold affairs. One of the most important factors which widened the viewpoint of the peasant woman and made her realize the vast possibilities of work and suc cess outside the home was the estab lishment of various industrial centers' thruout Russia.' In these factories most of the workers are peasant women and girls. Goaded by their never ending tasks on the farms, and lured by the prospect of freedom and equality, they come to work here. This was not wholly detrimental for by mingling with others and exchang ing ideas, these underpaid workers became broadened in their way of looking at life, and realized the help lessness of a life without education or possibilities. It is true that they suffer in many ways and habitually are sorrowful, for with an under standing of freedom and right comes a sadness at the state of affairs, but this understanding and sorrow of the peasant factory worker is going to prove to be the emancipation of all Russian women from degrading toil. As a result of the spiritual awaken ing in each individual woman, and all that is being done to encourage it, the peasants are becoming more learned, resolute and useful. They are helped to a great extent by the noble women, the intellectual class of Russian women. This class is small in aumber, but of great impor tance. The women are characterized by intellectual superiority and unique self expression. They are, as a class, modest, quiet and self reliant, caring little for fashion or pomp. They love their homes, and are kindly treated by their husbands. Because they were regarded as equals in the home they began to rise earlier to heights of success in other ways. Their education was retarded be cause of a loose system of schooling and inadequate funds, but these dauntless women have since the mid dle of the seventeenth century se cured education in foreign countries and then returned home to give their country the benefit of their learning. They did this because they loved their -land, and their one aim was to in crease her power and dignity. Along intellectual, scientific and business lines they have made won derful progress. They are in Russia today noted women dentists, lawyers, surgeons, physicians, editors, archi tects, bankers. In fact, almost every phasd of business life is understood and worked out by these women. Their many duties do not draw them entirely away from their homes and their children receive the best of care and education. When the war call came both the educated and the uneducated women responded. Relief missions were im mediately organized and every woman did her quota of work. This was a, splendid movement, but these women did more. They clipped their hair, donned men's clothing and immediate ly went into training for soldiers. "They learned" says a famous gen eral," twice as fast as the men." They were brave also, and when test ed by actual fighting excelled the men. The peasant class, on the whole, makes up the soldiers of these bat talions, and learn as quickly as 'the more educated. Both classes are proving brave and capable and are doing actual service at the front. One of the most noted of these battalions, is the "Battalion of Death" which has won world fame and honor. This battalion is a symbol of the Rus sian women in the future. It is cqm posed of women of all classes, work ing together and accomplishing great things by grim determination and bravery. Its aim is to hfelp Russia to freedom and democracy. So the Russian women in the future, as in the past, working together shall ac complish great things for home and country.—Madolin Andrews. Health Notes Scarlet fever or Scarlatina is said to be in its early stages very similar to the "German Measles." Every possible precaution must be taken in cases of "German Measles" until it has been ascertained for certain that the illness is not Scarlatina. Remember to be suspicious of all colds, sudden fevers, headaches and sore throats. Children who "do not feel well" should be kept quietly in a warm comfortable room. Every precaution is being taken in the schools to discover all forms of contagions. The hearty cooperation that evidences appreciation of these precautions is encouraging. Prof. Ohnstad, director are of who have handed in one pair ,k/l written during the past- week are: Olive Phelps, Alice Jackson, Priscilla Woodhams, Ruth Boyce, Glen Coop er, Louise Mackenroth, Ada Claire Brownson, Lessel Abbott, Ellen Har stad, Inez Davis, Elva Gardner Jenevie Ragon, Edna Young, Florence Drive ness, Marie Mengel, Mildred Blair, Miss Pfund. It will be noted from the above that boys are proving proficient knitters, and in fact are accomplish ing no small amount of actual usable knitting. You would be delighted to see the work some of the children of the first and second and third grades can do, "for the soldiers." Williston-Fairview Score—42—9 Williston defeated the Fairview five in a fast game played at Fair view Friday evening, Jan. 25. This was the second game of the season, the first game with the City All Stars- having resulted in a victory for the high school. The game at Fairview was a vic tory for Williston from the start, the ball being kept in their end of the field the greater portion of the time. The Fairview five were game to the last minute of play, but they could not make their teamwork effective, which is so essential to success. Bruegger scored 25 points for his team Kulas in the first half played an exceptionally good game Gordon played his usual fast game. In fact no one man starred, but the team worked as a whole. Keifer at fore ward starred for the opponents. After the game, the members of the team were given their passports to the Red Cross dance. The team speaks favorably of the manner in which they were entertained while in Fairview, and desire to muke another trip. The line-up follows: Williston Fail-view McDonald R. Kiefer, Oapt. Scott B. F. Launaette Bruegger, Capt Hill Gordon R. Moart Kulas L. Flyim Levitt Subs Bell Subs Christianson Field goals: Scott, 4 McDonald, 2 Bruegger, 12 Gordon, 1 Kiefer, 2 Bell, 1. Free throws: Scott, 1 McDonald, 2 Bruegger, 1 Kiefer, 2 Bell, 1. The high school basketball team has now played three games, having won all by large scores. The game with the City All-Stars resulted with a score of 48—8 Fairview, 42—9 and Tioga 36—12. This goes to show that the team is still composed of good material in spite of the fact that it suffered the loss of three ex cellent players. The team is strong er this year than it has been any previous year and it deserves the hearty and enthusiastic support of both the school students and the town people. On Friday the team makes another trip and will play Poplar and Cul bertson. A series of four games will be played at Williston beginning with the week of Feb. 14th. A game with Culbertson was substituted for a game with Stanley as the latter "backed out." Season*tickets will be sold at 80c to high school students for the four games and at $1.00 to others.
