WHAT ARE YOUR PLANS?
It is often asked what will you do after you finish school?
The person who merely has a good time in high school and
does not work is the one who hasn't an idea of what he will do
in the future.
Every student who enters school should know if pos.v.Nc
wnat occupation lie or she will follow and he determined to fill
the requirements of the occupation.—Quill Weekly, Enid Uigh
TO THE SENIORS!
The greatest achievement that any high school senior can
gain is the admiration, respect and comradeship from junior high
In every youngster's heart is a section laid away for hero
worship. The hero for the high school student is usually a junior
or senior, naturally, for the tippe r classmen are the leaders in the
school. Perhaps you seniors did not realize that you are the ido!
of sonic seventh grader, that is, if you have established yourself
among the notables in C . U.S.
If you knew that some younger student were secretely copy-
ing your movements you would try, honestly, wouldn't you, to
make yourself better and finer in order to mould some life in a
way that you wanted yours to be?—The Scout, Muskogee Central
