ii i i THE BREWSTER HERALD Published Every Friday at Brewster, Washington. D. L. GILLESPIE, Editor and Mgr. Entered as second class matter at Brewster, Washington. The New Cooperation A misguided optimist once said, "The word 'com- petition 'should never have been invented. 'Co-oper- ation' is the right word for every occasion every time Competition is wrong---co-operation is the thing." He was wrong in not believing that competition is worth while, but ruthless competition with no re- gard for the spirit of co-operation, is wrong. That is why the word co-operation came into being and the spirit of co-operation into practice. Without competition, co-operation will not devel- op. With competition and co-operation mixed, wc all do better. Competitiontoday brings about co-op- eration. For the competition is community competition. It is not the man down the street in the same line of business who is our competitor. It is the man in the same business in the next town. And co-operation with our "competitor" down the street makes the competition of the man in the next town less power- ful. We are living in an age which requires communi- ty co-operation, wholehearted co-operation on the part of every civic force--=business, industrial, relig- ious, educational, social, fraternal and citizenship. Do we realize this? And do we practice it? What is the particularly bad practice or practices which are retarding the development of Brewster? Are we cutting into each other's line of business, or are we cutting unwisely and unscrupulously into each other's margin 6f profit? Or are we witholding our support for civic enterprises, community building enterprises, religious and educational projects? Are we building up a better "Service Center" and assuring future prosperity for ourselves? We must meet this challenge--we must link the surrounding country and town into a Greater Com- munity. This can be done .through every citizen lending whoelhearted co-operatoin. No matter how well the leaders may chart the course, no matter how much effort some few of our fellow citizens may place behind the movement for a greater communi- ty-the success can only be achieved through the co-operation of the entire community. Today we cannot boast of the size of our commu- nity, when we stop to compare it to the population centers of the world. Nor can we hope to reach that size during the nextdecade. But there is one goal that Brewster can achieve, and that is to be The Best Community Of Its Size in These United States: Objects of Charity? Brewster, in common with many other towns in this section is pestered with solicitors, or "profes- s:anal beggars", would be a better. All of them carry sworn affidavits stating their deplorable condition and their object in soliciting. Some of them are working in a worthy cause, many more are palpable frauds who have chosen begging as an easy mode of making a living. Many towns in this section are com- bating the evil by having a committee, before which the solicitors must appear and prove the worthiness of their cause, they are then given a permit to be shown to alr they ask donations from. In several towns nearby, this committee is compo- sed of the mayor and two or three councilmen. Rev. Pendleton recently brought the matter up at a church meeting and suggested that a committee of five handle the situaition. A committee of this sort seems to be one of the simplest ways ofdealing with solicitors. NOTICE FOR PUBLICATION Department of the Interior U. ft.

DEBATE Debating in schools is very essen- ,ial and valuable to a large extent. t gives the students a chance to ;how their mental skill in talking o trguing before audiences. It g'ivc /ca a chance to overcome fright o backwardness. It helpes you to get your lessons because you will nol be afraid to ask questions so that you 'nay understand. Debating helps you :o convince others of your ideas. II helps you to apply for a position la- er in life. As a whole it is bane [i.cial and never detrimental.

For pleasure, to make friends, to keep :'rom working, or to learn v'ery few of us go to school for the reason that was intended when so (ong ago everyone treid so hard to make it possible to have schools. Ask a group of young people why .hey attend school. You will in all 9robability receive as answers, "B.- I :ause we have to," "Because every- )he else goes," "People like you bet- :er if you have a good education." tnd perhaps a few will say, "To learn to work and gain an educa- ion for with "out these two things ts assetts we can never succeed in boy or girl who comes to school with l a definite aim. Although he is not l always on the honor he has roll " I good grades and the school is giving Ihim the objectives which he is pure suing. Our parents work very hard foi to us, it is only fair that we should try to repay them in some measure by trying to get the most, possible out of the educatn which is given us a so :puch ease. It is never too late to start over. If you feel that some subject would be of more value to you, change your course a onnce. We only get one education, better therefore, to make it the mo.,;t valuable one pos- sible. MY TRIP TO THE U. OF W. On the 13th day of November the High School Delegates left for a fascin-ting trip to the University. Those delegates were Lucille Tim- merick, Sidney Braker, Albert Berry and myself. We hardly knew what to expect on our trip, but were al. in high spirits and kept our chaper on busy answering questions abou, the place where we were going. About four o'clock that day we came to the city of Seattle where the U. of W. is located. First thing we did was to register, after that we found our lodging places. We had the chance and opportunity to live in a fraternity house for our three days at the University and it wa well worth the trip alone. Nobody, I don't think, could imagine how. the fellows llve in their house until the) have been there themseh'es. {They tater life." have certain rules which they have Schools are here for own person- ] to live up to, but for all of that they al benefit but do we try to derive lgather around, sing, play music on all the benefit possible from them?Jail sorts of instruments, have games Many of us go to school and with no land after an hour of entertainmenl thought for the relative value of dif- I you will see them go to their rooms ferent subjects, we choose thosc l and study till w'ty late at night. which are easy.

Washington m 00terPo r .... gJ. NOVEMBER 29, 1929 i i three would be lovg buildings with just row after row of chairs. But I never saw any prettier buildings and you go inside and it is very pretty and more books than you imagine. Then go upstairs and in a big room there are more students studying, it is a study hall. But take the Cam- pus as a whole and it is a very pret- ty sight and most interesting to have some one with you that knows the history of the many buildings and their names and what they are for. And then to go through them and see the equipment hey have foi" the students to work with. Take the Physics Iabratory, it is about as big as our whole school, and more imple- ments that I knew were made. I- thought to myself, if we could only work our physics experiments in that labratory, and then the engineering department. Of all the engines, they had everything from a one cylinder engine up to a twin Six, gas, steam electric, they were all there. Every building had something very inter- esting and it 'nade you want to go to the U .of W. without fail. It was all wonderful. And our speeehes,'we had some very prominnet men talk to us. Each and every one had a different sub- ject, although I believe they all lead up to one point, and that was, The ligher Stamlard of Living For the lounger Generation, taking in such ubjects as, Education, Spirit to- ward your better self, Morals, Health and looking forward to the future for our selves and our com- munity. And in the three days I think : got very much out bf the High School Leader Conference. I don't know if we can express ourselves to others to make it worth their while, for sending us. But would like to say it was well wozh everhing to me. It put new ideas in my head and the others, it made you want to get in and dig, so yo u could go t- this Uiversity of Washington and get some things greater Out of li than just hard work, with hands an body. It put a new spirit into ycx strife for a higher education. An:t I. surely appreciate the chance th B. H. S. gave me to see and he : what I did.

PRIMARY NOTES We were all very much pleased Moday morning to see that some good spirit of order had clean our side walk. Spelling certificates were given out Monday morning to the follow- mg pupils who have had twenty successive perfect lessons: Robert Jolly, Arlene Houtz, Norman Her- man, June Anderson and Grace Knowlton. Mrs. Harry Phipps, Mrs, Alberta Smith and little Sonny Holt visited us last week . Miss Kellse Curry played for us last Friday. We all enjoyed the gui- tar music. HERE AND THERE James W.

" It Puzzled Him ' Little Willie returning from school one day was greeted at the door by his father who asked: "WII sonnie, what were you're yotr lessons about today?" "George Washington," replied the 'boy, "But father I don't understand. If George Washington was as hon- est as everyone says he .is why do they close the banks on his birth- day?'
