ATTENTION FRESHMAN BOYS
The boy who smokes cigarettes need not worry about his future – he has none.
The W. C. T. U. will give $5.00 to any boy who finishes high school without using tobacco in any form. This will be awarded at the graduation exercises every year and the W. C. T. U. hopes every boy in the class receive this honor.
At Wessington Springs last year seven of the graduates were non tobacco users and received this prize.
