Citizens Who Help Annual
Management of the High School Book Meeting Success

The following is a list of citizens who recognize the High School as the greatest institution in the city and who are ever ready to respond when the school calls for assistance.
Last year, for the first time in its history, the school published an Annual, a book which was a success in every sense of the word. The main expense of the publication last year was and will be this year, borne by the students themselves, but since the cost cannot be met entirely by the student body, other means are necessarily employed to raise the remainder.
Last year this amount was secured by the sale of advertising space to the merchants. This year, however, the Retail Merchants Association and Business League have not seen fit to endorse the publication as an advertising medium and have strongly recommended the taking of subscriptions for the support of the enterprise.
Working under this plan the managers of the 1917 Annual have already raised from capitalists, merchants and professional men approximately half the required amounts. The Annual will cost the managers this year $850 and they are appealing to the citizens for $350 of this amount. Out of the long list of citizens approached so far not a dozen have refused to help to some extent. The school is asking for the money as a support for a community proposition and as everyone recognizes it as such, they are having very good luck. They have a large amount to raise, however, and only a very short time in which to raise it and every citizen should come to their support.
The list below is to be considered a list of honor for everyone who pledges so much support of the publication thus puts himself among those who welcome any move that is for the advancement of the educational system of the city.
