The Freshmen enrollment has been increased by the two new members, Wilmer Minett and Cyril McClaflin, the later coming from the town of York and the former from Richland Center.

Monday and Tuesday of last week the Freshmen class performed experiments in General Science, showing the principle of the hot water system and proving the expansion of air.

The Freshmen class has issued invitations for a Halloween party to be given to the members of the Senior, Junior and Sophomore classes at the high school Saturday night, Nov. 3.

The Fair and carnival held Oct. 20th at the opera house was a grad success in every way. A large crowd gathered and it is safe to say everyone had a very enjoyable evening. Eva Wegner was the lucky person of the evening, receiving the pig that was given away. The net proceeds of the evening were $58.02. The students of the school take this opportunity to express their appreciation of the hearty support accorded them to make this event successful.

The Physics class has received their laboratory outfit and are now performing experiments daily. The class period has been extended from thirty minutes to an hour, so that more time can be taken for experiments.

Miss Barager is now teaching Physics; Prof. White, General History; and Miss Gleason, Freshmen English. The aim is to organize the Science and English classes under one teacher.

The Literary Society is going to put on the play, "The Miser of Reveleee." This is dramatized from the story "Silas Marner."

A meeting of the Literary Society was held Friday evening for the purpose of securing magazines and papers for the high school department. The president was authorized to look up suitable magazines and order them.

The high school basketball team has been hard at work practicing the last few weeks before opening their schedule. The schedule will be opened Nov. 9th, when the locals clash with the fast Neillsville five at Neillsville. Games here also have been scheduled with Marshfield and Alma Center.

The brick work has been completed on the new building and the prospects of moving into it by January are looking considerably better now.

The Girls' basketball teams have practiced several times during the past weeks and have a game scheduled with Neillsville girls for Nov. 9.

Lost: Fountain pen. Finder please return to Gertrude Davis.

Lost: Fountain pen. Finer please return to Rose Kemmeter.

Several of the high school students have purchased Liberty Bonds. Lydia Neinas, Gertrude Davis, Clifton Paulson, Rose Kemmeter, Mermel Wonser, Elva Amidon, Lucile Davis and Glen Hart are among those having purchased bonds.

The Sophomore English class has evidently taken a great liking for poetry. Shakespeare is their favorite autor.

Patriotic bulletins have been secured for high school work from the National Security League, written by Booth Larkington.
