Superintendent K. V. Graff Is wrestling
with a problem which may ultimately re
quire the combined efforts of th high
school faculty to solve. The 400 boys In
the school have pledged themselves to a
reformation honceforth the vile and nox
ious weed Is not to be consumed on the
school grounds nor within a radius of
two blocks of tli school, or by any cadet
in uniform. This is unanimous. Now
comes the rub. A strapping young fel
low unfolded his predicament to Principal
Kale Mcliugh. It was too much fer her
and she has passed It to the superinten
dent. After all the others had romped
home this youngster, who enjoys a quiet
smoke, came to the principal wltb a se
rious look. "What am I going to do,
now," he questioned, "you see, I am
pledged not to smoke within a radius of
two blocks of the school, and I live
within one block- of the High School
