student body if the students were
compelled to stay one hour after
School for tire purpose of fetudy.
I think a pupil should be kept
in each day. at least a hour, if he
is not meeting the average standaui
of grades. If lie is allowed lo con-
tinue his poor work, his teachers
will be held responsible to a certain
extent. Also, if he is allowed to carry
low grades; the other students will
follow his exafnple; consequently the
entire school will receive Hie name
A student remaining in would
have access to the library, which is
in the study hall, for any references
that would help him. He might also
have help from the teachers of the
subject with which he is having
trouble. It would also he a benefit to
tiie student body in that they could
gpt the majority of their lessons in

Many interesting things have hap-

horses. These paper products re-

to the shrine of Thornos A. Beckett,
but I doubt if Chaucer would recog-

his handiwork. We have also been
