It is with much regret that we give the sad information that Henry Brett, one of the pupils of East High School, was accidentally injured Wednesday, November fourth. Mr. Brett was indulging in his first shave, when the accident occurred. His noble countenance was badly mutilated. We sincerely hope that henceforth Mr. Brett will trust to the ministrations of a barber. Carroll Nelson, at present an instructor in East High School, spent five years in the Minnesota University, taking an Academic and Law Course. He led the University band during his last two years there. Mr. Nelson is now training the East High Orchestra, Glee Club, and football team, and so far has exceeded our highest expectations. Mr. Birdsall, vice-principal of East High School, will some time in the near future reside in his own little home. The house, which is on Eliza street, near St. Joseph's Academy, is in the process of construction. Mr. Birdsall's modern little bungalow will be ready for occupancy about December eighth. Miss Mary Black, an instructress in East High School, spent her summer vacation in the "Golden West." Miss Black left Green Bay in the latter part of June, going to Vancouver, by way of the Canadian Pacific. She stopped at Banff, a delightful summer resort in the Canadian Rockies. From Vancouver, Miss Black went by boat to Victoria; and with but a short stop there, continued on her way to Seattle. Most of July and August was spent in Seattle and Tacoma, with a week at Pacific Beach. While in Tacoma Miss Black spent several days visiting Mrs. Newschwander, formerly Miss Cora Lomas, a teacher of Latin in East High School. Miss Black climbed Mt. Tacoma. Starting from Longmire Springs and following the trail to Reiss' Camp, a distance of seven miles, Miss Black, with a number of others, walked, instead of taking the usual conveyance. It was a hard climb, but the scenery was wonderful. Miss Black came home by way of Port. land, making a stop of several days in that city. She had intended to take a trip on the Columbia River, but the forest fires raging at that time, the plan was abandoned. From Portland. She went to Salt Lake City, arriving at the time of the yearly carnivat in honor of the "Wizard of the Wasatch." Miss Black stopped at Omaha to visit her sister for a few days. She reached home the Saturday before school opened. Mr. Birdsall presented Curly Lambeau with a sweater for making the first and only touchdown for East High School in the Appleton game.
