Page Eight THE MONROE MONITOR--Monroe Washington Friday, October 2, 1925. The High News Edited by the Students of the Monroe Union High Hchool, Monroe, WasK Editor-in-chief .............. Harold Bailey Associate Editors ............ Dan Connelly Ruth Hatch, Feature Editor ................ Howell Jones 1 Sports Editor. ............. Wilford Reaper t Typist ...................... Etva MacDougall Faculty Advisor--Mrs. O. L. MacNee MOTTO: We strive for golden opin- ions from all sorts of people." Are You a Good Sport? Every student knows what sports- manship is, if he doesn't, it's time to find out. Here is a chance to show that you're a good sport. Sure- ly you'd like to have a chance to show the rest of the students that you are a good sportsman. Your chance will be here Friday after- noon at 3:30, when Monroe plays Sno- homish. It is to turn out and root for your .chool team; back it up to your utmost ability. Surely, you would'a't like to have your fellow students say about you "So and So is a poor sport, he hasn't enough school spirit or sportsmanship about him to back up his own team.' Every game the Monroe team wins, puts it that much nearer the chain- ponship. It would be fine to keep the championship for two consecu- tive years, wouldnt it? Well, if you wish to do this, get out and root for your team. It is not likely to win if you do not give it your moral support, so come out Friday and root as you have never rooted before. This not only applies to the Snoho- mish-Monroe game, but every foot- ball game Monroe plays this season. This rule of sportsmanship applies to the Monroe citizens as well as the students of the Monroe High school. Lloyd H. Ross. ---1925-26-- Schedule Opens Friday afternoon at 2:30 Monroe will meet the Snohomish football team at Monroe. The Snohomish players journeyed to Everett last Saturday to "get a line" on Monroes' plays and left the field after the game with worried countenances. This means that they will be full of fight this Friday, which means a good one. All come to boost our Bearcats. --.1925-26------ Development of Tennis Tournament The semi-finals of the fall tennis tournament are well on their way. The twenty-four boys and ,ten girls who entered have all been eliminated exeept three boys and two girls. The tournament went quite slowly because the football boys had to turn out after school, also a new rule has "Here's Your Certified Gheck--Always on Time" says the postman For more than seven years the Preferred Share- holders of Mountain States Power Company have received their quarterly dividend checks by mail, on the due dates. This record tells its own story to the family of partners who share in the wages earned by capital invested in modern properties performing useful public service. The enduring reliable character of this invest- ment--its dependable return to the investor--its ready marketability if he has to sell his holdings-- make it a safe one to offer to those people who can- not afford to lose. The primary idea of the Company is to obtain your personal friendly interest as a shareholder; your help and advice towards making the organiza- tion a better and more efficient public servant in every possible way.

The weather has been cloudy for several days, but if the rain holds off for a few more d'ays, the tournament will soon be finished. The matches are sifting' the players down to the ones who were in the semi-finals last year--W. Reape:, Jel- lison, Holten, Newell and Wilcox, in the boys tournament, while the Ray- mond sisters will battle for the girls' title. 1925-26------ Cafeteria Every day at twelve there is a grand rush for the cafeteria which started about the 15th of September. It is all the teachers can do to keep the students from crashing into each other and breaking their legs. It's a wonder that some one doesn't start sliding down the banisters. Viola Lind'h is chief cook and bottle washer, minus the bottle washing. It is planned to charge the stu- dents just enough to meet necessary expenses. Because there are so many students eating at school, some of the girls are eating their lunches in Mrs. McNee's room. 1925-26----- A Terrible Bugbear "Oh, today; the day of all days! Gee, how I dread it! A Senior was heard groaning." Now what could there be to cloud a Senior's bright day? By the tone it sounded as if the poor thing was a martyr. Have we gone back to the time when the Christians were thrown to the lions and this was the Senior's day? Or was the dear child to go to a dentist to have every tooth, good or bad, ground out of his head? On inquiry the trouble was found to be that the Senior English Class was having public speaking and' this was the first day of the ordeal. Come on, gang, it can't be so hard as all that the Senior implied. It surely will be useful later, too. Ev- eryone is in the same boat, so you should worry. 1925-26------- Social Items Word has come from Mr. Johnson that he is enjoying his work at South Bend very much. Mr. Johnson and the coach of that town aTe batching together. Miss Williams is now teaching the sixth grade at Marysville and music in the upper grades. Miss Grad" was ahseng from her duties at school last Monday; from reports we learn Miss Grady was quite i11. Miss Hazel spent the week end in Seattle, with her sister, and while there attended the show "Don .' Helen Louden was in Snohomish Friday evening. Those who attended the "Iron 'Horse" in Snohomish during the past week are: "Mr. and Mrs. Halvarson, Raymond Knapp, Lloyd Ross, Holton Newell, Harold Bailey, Howell Jones, Ruth Hatch, Ruth and Ruby Denney, Viola Lindh, Elva McDougall, Miss Grady, Miss Siebenbaum, Robert Newell and Wayne Nelson. Ruth Hatch attended the football game at Everett, Saturday.. Genevieve West was m Everett over the week end. Leda Peltier reports an enjoyable time while in Seattle over the week end. Doris Dubuque visited over the week end with her friend, Dorothy Morgan at Marshland. --1925-26------ Clean-up day was pulled off with much gusto Friday. The timid, fear- ful, pussilardmous Freshmen were allotted the greht open spaces around the school while the brave and cour- ageous Seniors had to take to the woods. The results were startling, and the grounds are in a much bet- ter condition. --1925-26 A Narrow Escape It was a dark and stormy night, Even the owls and bats took flight, I alone wandered o'er the town, My gloomy gpirits most broken down. I thought, "It surely is a crime, To be so homeless all the time, With nothing to drink, nothing to eat, Not even a bed in which to sleep.' Just then' I sighted an open door From which a cheery light did pour; And through that door jn gladsome togs I saw some gents consuming hot dogs. And they were listenin' to some stranger guy A-tellin' a yarn, while'the hot dogs lay by. "They wouldn't miss one," I hungrily yearned, And toward the hot dogs stealthily turned. But the stranger spied me! In his hand was a gun! But bravely I siezed a hot dog and run I=Ie fired, and hit me twice--it seems-- But, lucky for me---it was only a dream! 1925_26__._ - L.L.R. The First Football Game The group of rooters and specta- tors that saw the game Saturday af- ternoon saw the strong and powerful gridiron machine of Monroe trample the Everett babes to defeat by a score of 20 to 0. The game was a fright from start to finish and the good old Monroe fight was superior all through the game. Carlson's end runs were too fast for the Everett team and generally netted the Monroe team from 10 to 20 yards. Also Reapers line-smash- ing plunges netted the home team a good many yards. This is only the first game, but the team played exceptionally well. Mon- roe line broke up Everett's plays :time xd time again, continually forcing them to punt. The line-up was: Pat McGinn, L. H. Tom Herley, R. H. Wilford Reaper, F. B. Wayne Nelson, R. E. Lester Reaper, R. T. Richard Goering, R. G. Jellison, Center. Waldo Kliewer, L. G. Irvin Walker L. T.

SOME PERTI!XSEI!T PARAGRAPHS From Olympia On Various Matters Of More Or Less Interest Having heard' and decided its first tax cases and having fixed the 1926 tax levy--lowest since 1919--the es- tate tax commissio.n is now preparing to be ready to hear any appeals taken by taxpayers from the levies fixed in cities, towns counties or other tax- levying districts. Though intimations of a fight have been' made in several localities no steps can be taken until after the final budget meetings next month. The state in its recent levy cut $6,000,000 off the tax bill total of 1920 when the high cost mark was reached. No Gunning for Frogs The Thurston county game commis- sion has settled Olympia's bullfrog controversy by establishing a closed season for bullfrogs, relying on main strength and awkwardness to get by until the legislature legalizes the ac- tion. Hunters who shot but did not retrieve their bullfrog game precip- itated the action. Thus a load is lifted from the state game depart- ment. Relic ef the Fight State Treasurer W. G. Ports holds a reminder of the ill-fated venture of Shelby, Montana, in promoting the Gibbons-Dempsey prize fight--a cer- tified check for $25 issued by the Shelby bank that collapsed after the promotion effort. Another dividend, received this year, raises the state's return from the check from $5 to 7.50. Many Convicts Are Idle Though the industrial plants at the tate penitentiary are now making the automobile license plates used in Washington and most of the clothing needed by inmates of state institu- tions and the prisoners successfully carry on general farming and game farm work from 275 to 285 convicts are compellect* to remain idle each day. Of this number about 200 are fitted for work, the others either be- ing too dangerous fo entrust in in- dustrial pursuits or are physically or mentally unfitted for work. Director Olaf Olsen of the department of bus- iness control will ask the special leg- :islative session to provide labor for :the inactive convicts. Bridge Up in November The state highway committee ex- pects to let the contract for the Van- tage Ferry bridge, estimated to cost lover half a milliorr dollars, early in November. Contracts awarded for state highway work in both October and November sessions will cover work that will be carried on next season. NEW LAURELS FOR CHEVROLET Detroit, Mich., Sept. 30The Chev- rolet Motor company has added an- other record to the series of sales and production marks established this year. The new record is represented by the deliveries to Chevrolet dealers during August. A final check of Aug- ust deliveries places the figure at 41, 500, a larger number of cars than the company ever hap placed with its dealers during any preceding August. The August deliveries even exceed- ed' those made during either June or Jul.v of this year. The achievement of the August record preceded by only a few days uroduction of the two-millionth car by the Chevrolet Motor comnany, the first manufacturer of selective gear shift automobiles to attain that fig- ure. Maintenance' of deliveries through the summer months is cited by R. H. Grant, general sales manager of the Chevrolet Motor company, as endorse- ment of his statement made several months ago that the automotive in- dustry is approaching a more stable and uniform basis. "Eventually automobile production will be nearly uniform thromzhout the year," he said. "The seasonable peaks and yalleys" of product;on are being flattened out." Shenandoah Photo Views A .series of seven photo views of the wrecked' Shenandoah are now on display at the Camp Riley Drug Co. store and are interesting enough for a close inspection of them. Quite an enterprising stunt on the part of our druggists securing these views for the enlightenment and curiosity grat- ification of their patrons. Wenatchee--Ellsworth France 20- acre orchard sells for $30,000. What zs to be one of the bzggest social events of the season, will be the Grand Opening Ball in the Amer- ican Legion Hall, Monroe, Saturday night, October 3rd. Something very unusual in music is promised, the services having been secured of Radio Karlson, premier accordionist, who has been gatheriLg laurels of fame on the Pacific Coast and his Seattle Orchestra. Another very interesting feature will be a prize Schottische, several valuable prizes are offered. The ad- mission price will be z dollar and ten cerrts, extra ladies free. Coffee and lunch will be served at midnight; but for this no additional charge will be made. Everybody wel- come. .......
