YOUR ELECTRIC- LIGHT
PLANT IS NOW RUNNING
The City Council presents the peo-
ple of Clifton the new city light plant
in running order for Christinas, and
offers free light from now until Jan-
uary 1st, as a Christmas present.
Be loyal to your town by patroniz-
ing your own city light plant.
The way to have no light plant
taxes is to patronize the plant and
let the revenue pay the plant out.
Get wired in on the new city light
plant while the crew is in town for
that purpose. You will help your town
and help yourself.
It is hoped the people of Clifton
will patronize their own light plant
as near 100 per cent as possible. Ev-
ery tax payer in Clifton is a partner
in the city light plant. It is good bus-
iness to patronize your own business.
The price of lights in Clifton would
still be minimum $2.00 and 20 cents
per kilowatt had it not been for the
city light plant. The minimum is now
$1 per month and at least 25 per cent
\ k*8 0,1 other rates. The saving of one
dollar per month and the additional
25 per cent saved on your light bills
each month will pay lots of taxes.
Patronize the city light plant.

Public school dismissed Wednesday
afternoon at four o’clock for the
Christmas holidays. Work will begin
again on Monday, Jan. 4th, 1926.
The high school faculty entertained
the pupils of the high school with a
free moving picture show at the
Queen Theatre Wednesday evening
at 3:30. The Christmas show is an

Clifton high school won both ends
of a double-header basket ball game
at Meridian last Friday afternoon;
the girls winning their game 27 to
9 and the boys theirs by a score of
6 to 5. Both games were' well and
cleanly played, and our teams are in-
deed proud to be able to win such
games. Meridian has -splendid teams
made up of clean players, moreover,
they put up a “stiff argument” all
the way through. C. H. S. plays Mo-
sheim on Jan. 8th.
The following is an excerpt from
an editorial in the Dallas News of
Dec. 18, 1925:
What kind of high school does the*
best work—the big one or the little
one? There is no dispute that the
big one can pay the best salaries, buy
the best equipment and build the big-
gest buildings. But do the boys and
girls of the big high school make the
best students? The University of
Texas finds that they don’t. Figures
by E. J. Mathews, registrar of that
institution, have classified students
there according to the size of the
high school from, which they- come.
He finds that the average grade from
freshmen who were last year seniors
in high schools of less than 100 stu-
dents is the best average. Groups
composed of those who come from
high schools of greater size average
poorer grades. Freshmen in the Uni-
versity who come from the largest
city high schools have the poorest
grades of all—poorer than the aver-
age for the entire freshman class of
Mr. Mathews doesn’t say why this
is. But one is led to wonder whether
the round of football, basket ball, base
ball, track, dancing, school newspaper,
school annual, school drills in health
fire prevention and what not may not
be responsible. In the,. little high
school some of these things are at-
tempted, but many of them have to
be passed over, and studies get the
time which should have been allotted
to them. But in the big school they
are all included and most of them
are conducted under the high-pres-
sure, forced-draft spirit which makes
life in the big town at once stimulat-
ing and full of distractions.
"The big town tends more and
more to make a little college out of its
high school, with more and more of
the rah, rah, rah, and of competition
for competition’s sake. The little
