Recognizing the educational advant iatrps tit be derived from onnortunities exercises relative to the dedication - p.nd opening of this splendid new building- and everyone is eagerly looking forward to the occasion. Quite a force of workmen have been busy for the past few days laying the hardwood floor, putting it the seats, and adding the finishing touches in preparation for this opening game. It is expected that everything will be in readiness for the coming game and plat's are being made to accommodate the capacity crowd that is beir.g expected on this opening night. Everyone is anxious to see this splendid new gymnasium as well as to see the Fair-mount team in action in it in the first game of the regular schedule. With the completion of this building and fior Fairmount high school will have one of the best and up-to-date gyms in the state. The seating capacity of course will not be so large ; as in some of the large city gyms, but will be suicici.'c to meet the local needs for several years to come. At present it wi'l scat comfortably about , 800 people while a few hundred mere ( can be accommodated with as much comfort as is found in the average gym. The playing floor of polished hardwood t maple I will be about thirty eight by sixty feet in the clear while around this will be nearly two feet more of open space beyond the boun- dry lines before the seats begin.

The first game of the series was played Wednesday evening, the Seniors defeating the Sophomores by the score of 32 to 4. The two teams played nearly four minutes before either was able to score. The Seniors thei caged a basket and followed this, with four more in succession. Hook, the flashy Sophomore forward, got two baskets, one being far out on the court, while the other was an under the basket shot. This was the last of the Sophomores scoring as the Senior defense tightened up at this stage and held duriii'g the rest of the game. The S.eniors ran the score up at will and the final whistle found the markers at 32 to 4. Woods played the best for the Seniors while Hook starred for the Sophomores.

At tk other time during the contest did they have a chance as the seniors opened up and at the end of the first half the score stood 16 to 5 in favor of the last year men. The seniors came back in the second half stronger than ever, playing a passing game and displayed team work that completely dazed their opponerAs, also making baskets . from all angles of the floor.

The term of W. P.

Under the civil service law the appointment must be made from the eligible list after an examination is i held, and it is for the purpose of mak ing up a list of eligibles that the examination of aspirants to succeed Postmaster VanArsdall is to be held. 1 The date of the examination has not been announced,, but it will be at aiJ early date, probably during November, j How many Fairmount people men I or women have a longing to serve , the community as postmaster is not ' knowi', but it is understood that sev-; eral have been quietly grooming for j the place, preparing for the examina-I tion hoping to score the highest in the ,count when the postoflice department i officials grade their papers.

Quite a large crowd of ardent Fair-mount rooters made the trip with the team and as a result everyone is more optimistic regarding the possibilities and prospects during the season than ever before. It would be hard to j pick out at' individual stars on the Fairmount quintet for it is the team work and hearty co-operation of every man on the squad that brings the results. With such splendid spirit and such good material added to such hearty backing by the multitude of local fans, the Black and Gold athletes surely ought to bring home a remarkable string of victories this season.

It is, of course, idle to suppose that one shall become a competent judge of art simply through studying for a time photographs of prints. But what can atAi should be obtained a large measue of appreciation. A work of art which is really great will bear reproduction, and even though this may not possess the pleasure-giving power of the original in a gallery three thousand miles away, that measure of power which it does possess is well worth taking. One of the leading art critics of our own, Join C. Van Dyke, says: "You must look at pictures studiously, earnestly, honestly. It will . take years before you can come to a full appreciation of it, but when at last you have you will be possessed of one of the purest, loftiest and most ennobling pleasures that the world can offer you." One great object of picture study is that of openir.g the eyes to the beauty all around which an artist's trained eye perceives, while it is missed by others. This is the essential service of all great men to draw us up in some measure to their own level of insight, enjoyment and inspiration. These pictures are of irAerest to both young and old, and they are expected to attract and instruct large l'umbers of people. The exhibit will be open to the public at the following times: Thursday evening at 7:30; Friday afternoon at 3:00 and Friday night at 7:30.
