High School Notes (11 May 1916)

The Neillsville High School has again won distinction. In the District Oratorical Contest held in the River Falls Normal auditorium last Friday between the ten winners of the various leagues in this district, Harry Zimmerman, the Neillsville representative speaking the “New South”, won first place and will represent this district in the State Contest at Madison. Here he will contest with the winners of the seven other Normal Districts of Wisconsin. While the contest at River Falls was close and of a high order, there was no question as to first place, Mr. Zimmerman receiving three firsts and two seconds in the ranks of the five judges. This is the first time that Neillsville has succeeded in getting into the state contest, and we appreciate the honor which Mr. Zimmerman has brought to our school. The other winners in the contest Friday were Colfax second place and River Falls third. In the Declamatory contest, Cumberland secured first, Mondovi second and Chippewa Falls third.

The Sophomore Domestic Science class served a delightful six o’clock, three-course dinner in the domestic science rooms to the high school faculty Tuesday.

The Annual Exhibit and “Go to School Day” will be held Friday, May 19.

The next Senior program will be given Thursday night of this week.

Thorniel Haugen and Everett Wildish were members of the Co. A team which took part in the State shoot at Milwaukee Sunday.

The annual Junior-Senior Banquet will be held in the high school auditorium next Saturday night.

The Crimson and White for 1916 is now on the press and will soon be ready for distribution. By careful management it is hoped there will be no deficit to be made up this year. Only a limited number are being printed. The annual this year will surpass all other editions.
