SCHOOL NOTES.


       A picture of the high school in a body was taken last week and was very good.
       The program for the R. E. L. society on Oct. 10 was:--

       1.  Quotations from Lowell, class.
       2.  Life of Lowell, Mabel Chambers.
       3.  Reading, Selection from Lowell, Wyatt Thomas.
            Debate:  Resolved, that Lowell rather than Longfellow is the
             representative poet of America.  Affirmative, Rosa Clark;
             negative, Harry Bykowsky.
             (Debate was probably intended to be No. 4-lsc)
       5.  Current events, Louise Finks.
       6.  Decision of judges.

       The society will devote the entire month's work to the study of Lowell and his poem Vision of Sir Launfal.  One of the afternoon's programs will be devoted exclusively to to (sic) the recitation of the poem by the club.
       The teachers of the city schools had their regular institute Thursday afternoon from 3 to 5.  The program as published in the
Democrat Sept. 16 was carried out.  The subject of unity in school government was thoroughly discussed.
