" 1924-- .*" Monroe-M,arysville Game The lIonroe Bearcats journeyed to Marysvile Friday. They played ene of the best ganges of this season. I Marvsville has been thinking of the • • serious ' League Championship quite -[ ly, but they found Monroe to be one I of their stumbling blocks when they I held them to a 0-0 score. Both teams fought hard to score but it was •  . :found to be lmposmble. Marysville pulled off a pretty punt during the last half, the ball travel- ing 80 yards with the wind. How- ever, the Marysviile goal was threat- ened quite often. Buss, Johnson, tterley and in fact all the other players did their sutff for Monroe. 'They at least put us on' the map. There were a hundred rooters for Monroe at the game. The largest crowd of the season saw the two teams in action. You should have been there--it was real "thrillin'." The Bearcats will meet the Alum- ni next Friday on the High School grounds. The lineup was as follows: Monroe Bearcats " Marysville Lanning LCR Grannis ttenkle LTR MarShall Kliewer LGR Moskeland Campbell C Akam Wolfe RGL Linquist Nelson RTL Warren Newell REL Robinson Buss QB Buckanan Johnson LHR Morney Herley RHL Ames Reaper FB Williams --1924m U. of W. Conference A Success The students' conference at the U. of W. was considered one of the best held in many years, as there was a greater attendance than ever before, and more help than ever was given the students by Gertrude Tucker, who attended the Girls' Stu- dent Leaders' conference believes that girls' clubs should be organized in all high schools. Such clubs are ism. "The News Story" given by Matthew O'Connor, A'ociate in Journalism, and "ll,essing the Pa- per," by Herbe.r˘ Kretschmann, edit- or of the .DMy, were among the best i talks given• "Journalism as Life W'ork," by Dean Lyle M. Spencer, [irector of the School of Journalism, was a very fine talk. He told o many of the requirements necessary for a young man or woman entering the field of journalism. The two girl representatives re- turned to Monroe on Saturday night, the boys staying over Sunday. All at that time was regarded none too highly, but Roosevelt took it upon himself the burden of elevating poli- tics, and did much toward this end. His political success is evident for at the age of twenty-ofur he was the speaker of the General Assembly in New York. It was Roosevelt's everpresent de- sire to "know the different classes vf people that impelled him to go West in 1884. In two years, on his return to the East, he was known to be a horseman. In 1898 during the Spanish-Am- erican war, he organized the well known Rough Riders. It was doubt- less his striking personality thaŁ made Roosevelt the center of attrac- tion wherever he happened to be. He was a lover of nature and all the out- of doors• He was not satis- fied unless h was doing something the representatives reported a won- derful time and wish to thank the University for the welcome that was so cordially extended to them. --1924- Roosevelt Memroial Meeting Monday, Evening' October 27, at the Y. M. C. A. auditorium in Ever- ett, there was held a memorial meet- ing in honr of Col. Theodore Roose- velt, which was conducted by the Everett Council of Boy Scouts, There were twenty-five present from the Monrce troop of scouts, ten of whom were students in the High school, A splendid program was to help someone in sme way. He believed that if he was ever to rise to a position before the people, he must first learn to know his peo- ple, their wants and their desires." "As did Roosevelt, so do we have the opportunity to develop our- selves. Today, in both men and boyss, there is too much dependency. There is a saying "Life is but a song;" this is untrue. Life is seri- ous and Roosevelt based his life o. such a thought. Serious things surpass pleasures and yet it is a pleasure to be seri- ous and to serve others. "We must remember that both Scouts and Scouts leaders are under the same oath and they should base their lives on that oath. In living our Scout oath, we should seek only such com- pany as will help and net hinder us. Here the speaker ended his ad- dress with the timely counsel which boys will remmber. "Don't ever do a thing that you know is wrong; do .only those things that will meet the approval of your friends, your scoutmaster, your teachers, and your parents•" "You will understand as you grow older, boys, why I have spoken these words." " 1924-- Rooters A citizen' of Monroe who heard the score f the Marysville game said, Credits The credits of the Sophomores, Juiors and Seniors are now checked up, after hard work on the part of the faculty. This will enable the student to keep track of the number of credits that he has. --1924--- Debate The Junior and Senior Home Eco- nomics classes are going to have a debate on the subject: The Retail Delivery and Charge System are of more" value to the household than would be the saving derived from paying cash and carrying home your purchase. --1924-- Torch Honor Society Last Friday morning all the ma- mas, sisters, brothers and friends of the Honor students put on their bibs and tuckers for they were going to the initiation at twelve forty-five o'clock• Of course all the pupils who were going to be initiated dressed up to look very nice. Now, can you blame them ? Many town people were present• The eighth grade was also there. The balcony was filled with visitors. I presented, consisting of music and singing. As a special feature, A1 Blackmore's famous Moonlight Sere- nades played several selections. The address 5f the evening was given by Judge Alsgon, who recently spoke at this school. Mr. Alston is also a Boy Scout Commissioner. Be- low is a summary of the address given by him to the Boy Scouts of Everett in' honor of the Council: "Roosevelt's life has been before the public for more than thirty years. He was one of the few great men born and raied in a great city. His was a life of privation, in the "So that was the score, eh? Well I guess I didn't miss anything then." But that's where he was wrong, as it surely was the most exciting game of the season, being the first time in seven yem:s that Monroe has been as much as able to tie Marysville. Seventeen, or 28.3 per cent of the Frexhman class, 22 or 46.6 per cent of the Sophomore class, 30, or 100 per cent of th,e Junior class, 17' or 56.6 per cent of the Senior class, and last but not least, 86 per cent of the faculty were present at the game. At the second half, there came sense that he was the son of a plodding across the field, a person wealthy family and was not allowed to have chums and daily associates as does the ordinary American boy. "In his childhood he was not ro- bust. He wag sickly and delicate, and consequently privately tutored. It is hard for us to realize that Roosevelt, as the man we know, was every sickly. "But Roosevelt was not unconsci- ous of his physical condition; from his childhood he was constantly try- ing to develop himself. As a re- sult, at the time he graduated from Harvard, he was an able boxer. Immediately after leaving Harvard, he went into political work. Politics who wore high top loggers (un- laced) and a long grey overcoat (the type that Paul Bunyun's youngest .son wore) and a red hunting hat, and carrying an umbrella over all. As this bulky figure made its appear- ance across the field, a Marysville upstart was heard to say, "Here comes the mayor of Monroe," but as the figure drew closer, it was dis- covered to be our very own English teacher, Mrs. McNee. --1924-- Leon Spillers entered the High School, Monday, Oct. 27, from Cos- mopolis, Washington.
