MARION SCHOOL NOTES A commendable -thing happened last week in the Latin Department when four ninth grade girls had a half-holiday. One girl made up the work in another section and the oth er three reported for the afternoon class rather than miss an important review. These girls were Elwyn Hill, Nevelle Greene, Strobie Hogan and Jessie Nichols. Such • interest t^nd spirit is thoroughly appreciated t>y the members of the faculty. Plan to come to the basketball game tomorrow (Friday) night. Our girls and boys will play the fast teams from Hickory. These will be great games and you cannot afford to miss them. The honor pupils of Grade 6-B, those making an avierage of 90 or above on all their work and having a perfect attendance record, are as follows: Jack Poteat, Eldridge Mil ler, James Tate, Sue Sweeney, Lou ise Miller, and Louise Benfield. George Goldsmith, of Grade 6B, Miss Moser, teacher, wrote the following composition on "Thrift" after our first banking day last week: I think it is a good thing to form ; the habit of thrift. We have orga nized a banking club in our school. We have a certain day to put mon ey in our bank, and that is Tuesday. We have little bank books to keep account of the money we put in the bank. When we get one dollar they are going to put it in the big bank up town. We can take any amount of money we want to and at the end of the year we get it back. The rea son they are having it in school is to try to help boys and girls save money and not to spend it as they get it for candy and other things. You can save your money and buy your Christmas presents and not have to beg your father and mother for it. Most great men started by saving a little at the time. Boys and girls today have great opportunity to earn money after school hours. After you have saved the first dol lar it is much easier to save the next, and saving is a mighty good habit to cultivate. It is a good plan to keep an ex pense account and then we know how much we spend and what we spend it for. I am going to try to save enough this year to help buy a bicycle.
