The gradviatinqr class this year is composed of thirty five splen.; did boys and girls. Many' of them will enter college next fall, some will remain in their own homes, but we know that their homes and their communities will be made better because because they have had the courage and interest to complete their High, School 'work in a creditable manner. Owing to many interruptions and the fact that our auditorium was not completed until recently few plays and entertainments have been given this ye^tr. Hewever, the Seniors gave one plfly "All Is Well After All" which Was enjoyed and we expect to give several interesting programs during the Commencement season. The Junior class entertained the Seniors and faculty with a theatre paity at the Playhouse, Statesville, recently, after'which they all returned returned to the school and enjoyed themselves themselves for 3ome time and were served served refreshments. April 22nd >t 8 o'clock the Grammar Grammar Grades gave their operetta in the auditorium, and on. the 23d the High School gave the operetta, Cherry Cherry Blossoms. Tho baccalaureate sermon will be preached Sunday, May 3d and Thursday Thursday and Friday of .the following week will be taken up with Commencement exercises. Agricultural Department: This is riot a new department, for Scotts was one of the first schools in the county to offer its students a well rounded course in Agriculture. Prof. W. E. MacDonald has had charge of this department for the past eight years and many boys have gone out better fitted to take their stand in their own communities or to enter the colleges and become leaders _ in this most important occupation "Feeding -The Nation." During the year a prize of five dollars was offered offered to the boy writing the best papers papers on 'Cooperative Marketing of tobacco, tobacco, this prize was won by Keece Campbell 1st; Cloycl Gant 2nd; Floyd Harris 3rd. This department has just ordered and delivered two hundred hundred and seventy bushels of certified Mexican big boll cotton seed, cooperatively, cooperatively, for the farmers and boys in the community. English Department: Every student in high school has been required to keep an English note book this year, into these note oooks we have put all important outlines, outlines, dates, memory gema, etc. We have strived to leam how to write and speak English correctly—much of our time has been spent in having oral talks. We have written many themes both long and short. Our Most important theme this year was written on "Cotton Cooperative Marketing, Marketing, Its Progress and Its Future." \long with our English wc have been .aking spelling with definitions. Most .)f the students find Literature and Life much more interesting than English grammar and composition. We ere enjoying studying Shakespeare's Shakespeare's plays, memorizing poetry_and criticizing different pieces of literature. literature. French Department: French note books have been kept by the students in first year French class. Into these note books they nave put such things as the phonetic trianfle, irregular verbs and idioms. Sevearl attractive posters have been made by the students during the •/ear. These have been put up in the :lass room and have helped very much in the learning of new words ind expressions. Quit* a bit of dictation has been jiven this year in order to help the students acquire an ear for French. We have leame'd many quotations, piovcrbs etc.,- in French. Library: Our library has'grown considerably considerably this year. There have been •hree hundred and thirty volumes added, lorty-seven for high school work, dnd two hundred eighty-three :n the Elementary department. Ot the books added to the high school libraiy there" were thirty-two volumes volumes of fiction, three of English, four of riisTory, seven of Science and one of Agriculture. AH of the books have been carefully catalogued and a new card placed in each. The children children hdve taken much interest in the library this year and we teel that they have received much &uod from Ihcir outside reading. In connection with our library: \ye have a reading room. Each child in Mgh school is permitted to remain in !T,e reading room one perjod each lay. We take about twenty of.the best magazines and papers and the students enjoy this department. Science Department: .Scotts has' one of thc best equlp- •icd Science rooms' in the county. Some new equipment has been added this year for we realize,that,the best way to reach, scientific -truth is through experimental work.' • At the beginning, of the year we wer'e able to"order .$H5'worth-of lab- ira'tory' equipment, including Chem'- '.stry, Physics' and Biology apparatus. *»Ve hay«? also collected laboratory Sees from the pupils \yith Which we bought sk ne^V'supply of gas for the Chemistry, laboratory, varnished ta- Mes, and bought other needful equipment equipment for our room.

The girls can boast of winning thirteen games out of fourteen, fourteen, losing only to Barium Springs. The high scoring honor goes to Douglass MacDonald followed by Lucy Hillarcl and Louise Halyburton. The splendid defense work of Mary Sherrill. Willard Combs and Vererene Adams must be given credit. Others entering the games' were Sue Steele and Thelma Combs who did their part in making our girls champions. We also have a girls' baseball 1 earn.
