T. A. Will Sponsor Excellent Treat One of the finest musical treats of the seaeson is to be presented in the Monroe high school auditorium on Friday night of this week by the Industrial Glee club ,of the Everett Y.M.C.A. This organization is built up of men engaged in all walks of life: doctors, lawyers, professors, school teachers, shop and mill men all meet together to study and enjoy that art wlieh may so fittingly be called the gift of the gods--music. These men are under the direction of Miss Esther Sather,, supervisor of music in the public schools of Everett, an&lt;l' are ably accompanied at Edited Weekly by the Members of the Junior Class _Member of the High School Press Association STAFF :Editor ....................

Mrs. MacNee the piano by Miss June Carboneau, high school student of Everett. A few of the many worthy of per- sonal mention are" Mr. C. H. John- son, bass soloist; Mrs. G. A. Bloom- berg, viofinist; Mr. Win. A. Leech, reader; Mrs. Nail Gregerson, soprano, who has sung with the club on several .occasions. They have been organized for two years, meeting regularly once each week, and still cling to their original plan that concerts are to be given only to buy music for the club, and thgt enjoyment is the only return to be received personally. The club is capable of presenting a very high class entertainment, as did the people of Mount Vernon say since February llth, on which date a concert was given there. The onty reply one can receive from a member of this Glee club regarding why they are organized is: "We sirrg because we like to sing." Remember the date, Friday, March 27th, 1925. 192-- Surprise Entertainment The students of the high school were pleasantly surprised Monday morning with a few selections ren- dered by the Avalon quartet from the University of Eugene, Oregon. The quartet consisted of four male voices, Lester Farnum, first tenor; Howard Stansbery, first bass; Gilbert Cays, secomt tenor, and Lorraine Stivers, second bass. Mrs. Stivers, wife of Mr. Lorraine Stivers, accompanied them. They rendered three excellent selections: the first was "Crossing of the Barr," by Bed; the second a saw solo played by Mr. Lorraine Stivers, and third, a negro selection which appealed greatly to the inter- ested audience. Monday evening the Avalon quar- bet gave an excelten and delightful program in the auditorium of the Snohomish high school, several of the Monroe high school pupils at- tended, among these from here were Dorothy Spoon, Ruth and Ruby Den'ny, Harriet Henkle, Arvin Motter, Spring Spring came on the 21st day of March. Mother has been preparing for spring for about a month and now spring has driven winter away with balls, bats, golf clubs and tennis racquets. The world is busy at spring work. The fresh-smelling black earth is being turred over and prepared for planting. The larks and many other birds keep the air full c music. School children cover the school grounds and walks as they skip and sing of their happiness at the coming of spring. Winter looks over his shoul'- der as he stalks away and sees what commotion spring has made. He dares not stop f0r spring is at his heels. -1925 Habit Habit is one of the most important factors in everyone's character. A habit is a habit the world over, and, whether good or bad,, it has a direct influence upon our every act. The subconscious mind reflects the choice .of our repeated actions or thoughts. Habit is formed ONLY by repetitio Since it takes no more energy to be a master of a good habit than of a bad one, why should we be totally unfair to ourselves by inflictin an evil habit on our minds? uOnee having acquired a bad habit we will always be somewhat handicapped until we rid ourselves of it. And, in that way, the breaking of a bad habit is more difficult than the making of one. "To err is human," but let us in- dividually and conscientiously take an inventory of ourselves. Do our wrong habits overbalance the good ones? Are we attaining bad habits at present that will trouble us in the future? If so, let's wake up! make our habits our servants, mt our master. --192-- The New Tennis Court At Hand A new tenni court is being put in at the high school. This is ittdeed a very welcome announcement, as we have been a little doubtful when the i good work could be started.  I The people of the town have helped i wonderfully toward this court. We' wish to express our appreciation for their interest and cooperation, par- ticularly the Monroe Commercial club, who have donated about $160, and $185 was cleared at the vodvil a few weeks ago, which leaves one hundred yet to clear. --1925 Sophomores Lose to Fresh As it was prophesied, the sopho- mores and freshmen debate was a close and exceedingly interesting .one. Vera Snell must be complimented on Milton Henkle, :Lloyd Ross and Rob- err Hayes. Those from the town of every girl turn out and do her bit for the schovl. This means you, freshmen. Do not sit back and say, "I can't make the team, so what's the use of trying ?" You may not be able to make the team this year, but remember, next year those who are now playing are going to grad- uate and leave vacant places which you must fill. Come v, girls! Let's go! 192G-- Girls' Track Now that spring has come the girls are at last turning out for track. Quite a number of girls have signed up for track and they hope to win the county meet again this year. The first turnout will be Wdnesday afternoon after school --1925- Girls Track and Baseball Complaints Track and baseball season is here again. The boys' squads are already out limbering up for coming events. Girls' track and baseball is to be- gin soon, coached by Miss Himes. This brings to mind the girls th- letics of a year ago, when girls' track and baseball were revived in t this county after several years of[ inactivity. M,onroe girls were en- couraged by the faculty to turn out Monroe were, Miss Georgia Snyder, Mrs. Hawk, Mrs. Motter and Flor- ence, Mr. and Mrs. Hichman, and Mr. and Mrs. Denney. The pro,gram consisted of several selections by the quartet, and a hum- bet of solos rendered by each of the members of the quartet, and also several piano selections by Mrs. Stivers. Mr. Stivers played the familiar songs, "Perfect Day," and "Old Ken'tucky Home," on the saw, for these activities. A considerable a number, thus encouraged, lured by the prospects of an enjoyable sea- son of athletics and fully expecting some little extra credit for their efforts, resporded. Baseball results wre not entirely-favorable to the Monroe girls but in track, they won tl ffirst Sr0.homish county girls' championship. Then comes the rub. None of the girls have received any school credit for their efforts. This was a sore disappointment for some of the girls who were counting o.n these credits to swell their school credits and Torch points. A few girls turned out for both track and baseball night after night and earn- ed credits just a well as the boys did. Can you blame them for feel- ing a little hurt and unappreciated? Also could you censure them if they felt a little doubtful about turning out again {this year, using up valu- able time in doing so, and taking chances on receiving any recogni- tion of their services ? Of course credits can not be given to everyone turing out for ath- letics, but it seems odd that the faculty could not see fit to grant a few of the girls some credit, and those of the championship team. To a disinterested: person it seems only fitting that the feculty, before en- couraging students to turn out for athletics, give them a clear under- standing of the credits they may expect to receive. --1925- The Annual Fever "It is in the morning-- The lark is on the wing; On the grass is the dew; But all I ove is--you!" Thus a poor soul is mooning over these lines thinking abe tuhis true love (The poor lad thinks she's true). No lessons f'or this lad for a few woeks His grades at the end of the six weeks? No care has he for such trifles ! I went to him' in a straightforward way and asked him what was the matter. "My only love, youOh! what did you say?" For a moment he woke from his dream. I repeated my question. "Ah! Ecstacy cf joy. 'Tis the heavenly time of spring. Wil} you >lease bell me what rhymes with love? Ah, yes, I have it, dove! My orfly love, my beautiful dove; you--" Thus he left me, murmuring sweet quotations of love. Looking up the date I found that I spring had come indeed. Now I have the fever, too and my heart goes all aflutter when I see one of the her logical argument. By his delivery the fresh may well say that they have a "second Daniel Webster" whom we call Edwi.n Carlson. The work of all six is appreciated and the debate Monday proved that work can be interesting. The affirmative upheld the follow- ig seven points: Free election of cburses: 1. As now used in the state of W, ashington has proved a success; (2) Will meet the vital need of every boy and girl. (3) Equips pupils un- able to go to institutions af higher learning with tools to. make his way i life (4) Tends to keep students in ,school rather than to eliminate them. (5) Recognizes the individual differences of pupils. (6) Furthers exploration and science. (7) Only alternative because it tends toward economy. The sophomores' argument was concise and their reasoning could not be confuted. Following is a sum- mary of their proof: (1) Present sys, tern is inefficient and is not giving satisfactiom (2) The non-elective system is mare practical. (3) Average boy or girl at the age of entrance to high school is not weIY informed or pIrposeful enough to choose his course (4) A foundation of general knowledge is necessary in the mak- ing of a desirable citizen. This question, "Resolved: That high school students should be al- lowed free election of courses," is so much in the minds of the people today that it offered valuable in formation that everyone should know. Lawrence MacDougall presided .as chairman. Mr. Reardon, Mrs. Bailey &rd Mr. Clark kindly acted as judges. Their decision was two to one, mak- ing the affirmative victorious, but close victors, over the sophomores. The affirmative in the order with which they debated are: Geraldine Streeter, Edna Raymo.nd and Edwin Carlson. The aegative: Edith Kobe, Vra Snell and Kenneth Morgan. 1925-- Debate t The juniors and seniors are work- ing on a debate. The question is: "Resolved: That all branches of aeronautics should he united under one head, such as a secretary of air forces. The junior class is divided into two parts.
