This little pair are great pals and the most congenial of playinates. '
Master David thought both daddies 'went off each morning to work,
but Mary said, "No, my daddy does not go off to work every -day I know,
because he haa to go out to make the bread and butter." She then asked
'David, "Who makes the bread and butter at your house, David?"
David pondered for a few minutes and then he replied: "I know

H. S. DANCE TO Btf
AN ALUMNI PROM
Students Going to Dance in Spite
of the Opposition of the School
CHANGE IN NAME FOR THE BALL
In spite of opoeitlon of the Board
of Education, outspoken denounce
ment by some of its members and
attempts by Superintendent E. U.
Graff, the big dance and entertain
ment planned by alumni and stu
dents of Central High school for
Hotel Fontenelle April 23 Is going
to be held as scheduled.
It will be called the Alumni Prom,
however, the name of the school not
bring connected with the affair,
since the board's standing rule to
that effect was emphasised by objec
tion of that body.
Alumni Member Talk.
Henry Howes, alumni member of
the committee, has announced that
the ball will take place as scheduled,
with the exception of the change of
name to comply with the School
It Is understood that since Superintend
ent Graff consent for the' Riving- cf the
Ms; social event was criticised br the
board and he was directed to forbid the
active studrnts from rolne; ahead with
It, lie has attempted to have the hotel
authorities cancel the arrangement for
the use of the hotel ballroom. The hotl
authorities are said to have assured the
committee that they would hold the date
for the dance, when assurance was given
that the rule of the Board of Education
asalnot use of the high school name
would be strictly complied with.
IloloTtrhlaer Mill Oppose.
Dr. E. Holovtchlner of the board de
clare that the whole affair should be
called off, and he expresses disapproval
of the chaperone of th proposed dance,
some of whom are said to be high school
teachers. He ays:
"I think that the chaperones Interested
In th proposed Central ILlgh school ball
should take th positron of supporting
the Board of Education, rather than
tending their Influence toward holding
thla function under a new name, which
means only a subterfuge to evade the
rule of the school board."
The doctor explain he Is not objecting
to a crowd of high school young people
and members of the alumni getting to
gether for the purpose in question, but
his contention is that having once decided
to hold thla event in the name of the
high school, which Is against a rule of
the board, and then selecting another
name merely to evade the rule, ia not In
culcating ln the minds of the young peo
ple a proper respect for the rules of the
Board of Education.
Sbonld Be Calle Of.
"I think it would have been the part of
wisdom if the chaperons would have ad
vised calling the function off entlrrlv
after objections were raised against tiding
the name of the school. If the ball and
entertainment would have been im
nounccd In the first Instance as a strictly
private affair, without reference to the
school, then I would have taken an en
tirely different position, because no mem
ber of the school board would assume to
Interfere in the private affairs of the
pupils of the high school," added Lr.
This school board member further be
lieves that the parents of -the high
school boy and girls should back the
school board In Its efforts to command
respect for reasonable rules.
Superintendent Graff Is still noncommit
tal on this subject
