High School Notes (12 Mar 1914)


We are always glad to note the success of the former students and graduates of the Neillsville High School.  We are especially pleased to see the likeness of Leland Forman, ’12, is the picture of the Freshman Debate Team in a recent issue of the Lawrentian of Lawrence College.  This paper speaks highly of Leland’s abilities in this line of work.


Mr. Frank Wood, ’12, who is teaching in the town of York, near Granton, visited the schools a few days ago.


The third term of three months began Monday.  The spring vacation of one week begins April 3rd.  Report cards for the six months are being given out this week.


Mr. Free, the janitor of the south side buildings, has been suffering with a severe cold for some time, and during the past week has been under the doctor’s care.  John Southard is taking his place during his absence.


The basketball game between the Seniors and Post Graduates resulted in a large score in favor of the graduates.  The result is probably accounted for by the fact that three of the players of the senior class and most of the girls were having a sleigh ride on the river.


The Senior class enjoyed a pleasant time at the home of Will Glasow last Wednesday night.


The high school students are spending their spare moments building boxes 5x10x10 and filling it with balls one inch in diameter to solve a problem given them last Friday.  So far but one student (a junior, of course) has solved the problem.


Practices have begun for the Declamatory and Oratorical Contests to be held about the first of April.  About thirty-five students have entered these contests.


The appointment for the Community Choral has been taken up.  The Union was organized by Prof. Dykema of the Department of Music of the University last fall and regular practices have been held up to the present time.  The pressure of other interests has made the attendance rather light for the past few weeks and it has seemed best to discontinue the sings for the present.
