The pupils of Hayes graded school have been working under the motto "rowing not drifting." The members feel that a decided personal effort on the part of each one as well as the hearty cooperation of all is necessary to keep their school up to the standard they have placed for it. The following have proved successful oarsmen during the past week:
Upper Department:  Clara Yakel, Elsa Johnson, Esther Suring, Edyth Gardner, Lillian Johnson, John Johnson, Cora Suring, Hugo Krueger, Viola Cato, Emma Radloff, Rosa Radloff, Alice Dieck, Elsa Gerndt, Mabel Serier, Mary Massar.
