High School Notes (7 JAN 1915)

The winter term opened Monday with teacher and pupils back for work. A number of new pupils are enrolled in the grades.

During the vacation the buildings have received the usual cleaning, and, in addition, the floors of the south side buildings have had the old black oil removed, which improves the appearance of the buildings very much. New inside vestibules have been put in the south hall of the old building which makes it possible to keep the hall warmer.

Miss Ruth Carter has entered high school to complete her high school credits.

Tonight (Wednesday) is the regular time for the picture entertainment at the high school room. The title of the illustrated lecture is Scenic Wonders of our West, and of the moving pictures Wonders of the Microscope. The entertainment begins at 7:45. Everybody is invited and there is no admission.

A number of accidents happened to pupils during the vacation. Margaret Lowe had the misfortune to have her leg broken while visiting relatives at Hartland. She was struck by a coasting sled. Arthur Paulson broke his collarbone. Lillie Beyer is carrying her arm in a sling as a result of a sprain in a fall.

Lucile Henze ’14, who is teaching near Granton, is spending part of her vacation visiting the high school.

To cover the requirements in rhetoricals it has been found necessary to give about five minutes each morning to the students. Some of the Friday morning assembly periods have also been used for this purpose.

J.C. Bartholf of Milwaukee visited high school Monday morning.

New bulletin boards have been placed in the rear of the assembly room.

Walter P. Schatz, the new high school assistant and civic secretary arrived Monday to begin his duties.

Eastern educational papers have been commenting very favorably upon some of the new phases of educational work undertaken by the high school here. Principal W.R. Rood has received numerous inquiries from cities, some from as far east as Rhode Island, that are interested in carrying on the same kind of work.

The second big basketball game of the season comes Friday night when Neillsville meets its old rival, Mondovi, in the Armory. The game promises to equal the Arcadia-Neillsville contest in interest. Neillsville is out to win and needs the support of all.
