Helene Marx went to Eau Claire for the weekend.

Edna Tragsdorf visited Miss Leason’s school Friday.

Miss Mackin went home to New Richmond over Sunday after attending the Eau Claire convention.

The Teachers’ Training Course, taught by Miss Hammond, is one of the best courses we open in our school. Many boys and girls have taken the course and have made successful teachers. All have received schools and are proving themselves capable of undertaking a great task and proving themselves worthy of praise.

This year there are thirty in the Senior class and sixteen are taking the Training Course. There are eleven Juniors taking the course.

The Athena Club is waiting copies of “The Trial of Hearts”, which will probably be given as the Junior play. In the meantime they are continuing work on “The Real Thing”, a comedy by John Kendrick Bangs.

The Senior Dramatic Club announced the arrival of “A Box of Monkeys.” It is further stated, however, that it is not the forerunner of a zoo, as one might suppose, but a funny play on which they are soon to begin work.

The Commercial Club is progressing as is seen by all. Secretary, Jay Harding. The club meeting preceding the one which took place on  October 8th was called to order in the Commercial room  October 22, 1916, all members being present. The following program took place:
1. A talk on flax and its use, by Anna Hosely
2. A talk on salesmanship, by Naomi Richardson
3. A talk on salesmanship, by Alvina Hauge
4. An article on window trimming, Vivian Bartlett

The following program will take place at the next meeting:
A debate: Resolved that the condensary is more profitable for the farmers and community than the cheese factories and creameries.
[Affirmative] and Emil Schroeder
Negative – Jay Harding and Theodore Tykac
