:7 ........ .....1 1 - -- - ----- Not ZEL .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.
