It is Well enough however that the prospective pupils should know exactly How to proceed in the matter of examinations required to gain admittance to the end that they May make the Best a missile showing and that valuable time May not be lost. Asiu the past next year a number of boys and girls will Complete the ours in the township schools Ami will be candidates for admission into the local High school what Borough superintendent Gordy would like to impress upon these pupils is that it would be much to their interest to nine into town on the week of May 21st and take the regular examination with the Borough pupils instead of Mist Juning the matter and requiring a Jerial examination next fall.
