.SERVICE
Ideals are worth while. For high school boys and girls it would
seem a favor to establish in some concrete way a realization of such
ideals as may be worth striving for. With this purpose the "SERVICE"
organization has been established as a permanent organization in the
Edgerton High School. Each year a vote of the student body and of
the faculty determines the strongest all around boys and girls in school.
To the boy receiving the largest number of votes and the girl receiving
the largest number of votes is given the Dorothy Towne medal. Below
is indicated the code as presented to the students of the Edgerton High
School:-
The Strong All Around
Boy or Girl
This code has been formulated with the
purpose of setting before the students
of the Edgerton High School those char-
acteristics which determine the strong
all around boy or girl. It is offered as
a means by which students of this school
may form   attitudes and habits which
shall make of them more valuable mem-
bers of the school society of which they
are a part. It is to serve as a guide to
be used by students and teachers, when,
at the end of the school year popular
vote shall determine which boy and
and which girl is to secure the Dorothy
Towne medal as an indication that he or
she is the strongest all around boy or
girl among the student body.

in mind, courteous and polite to
all.  It means the formation of

3. Is AMBITIOUS AND LOYAL. This

all school activities, a willingness
to enter with splendid spirit every
matter of school life which the
judgment of the teaching force de-
termines as advisable. It means
to be proud of your school, to
help make its work more success-
ful. It means to do team work,
sinking your selfish inclinations
for the welfare of the school. A
willing obedience to those in auth-
ority.
4. Shows INITIATIVE.    This involves
an indication of courage to do
what your judgment tells you
should be done, to make decisions,
to adapt yourself to circumstances,
to make use of 'all your powers.

that you must have endurance, be

be so open, so upstanding, that his
attitude is to be unquestioned.
7. Is FRIENDLY. This involves sym-
pathy for all occasions, to be tact-
ful, generally cheerful, always

WHAT I AM SPEAKS SO LOUD THAT
IT IS NOT NECESSARY FOR ME
TO SPEAK.
