THERE is a decided atmosphere of
elation and individual esteem ex
tant among: the members of the June,
'16. class since the arrival of the new
Pins. The class has complied -with
the customary Jefferson democratic
principle and chosen a plain pin, well
within the means of every member. The
pin is a' plain gold block "J," half an
inch in height, with "June" and '"16"
lettered in the shank and hook of the
The ticket sale for the February, '16,
Interpretation of "Why Smith Left
Home." scheduled for next Friday and
Saturday evening bids fair to exceed
even the wildest expectations. Victor
Hesse, business manager, created a
sensation, and incidentally displayed a
keen insight into the psychology of
impression in last Monday morning's
assembly by having a, stepladder s?t
up on the stage when he was an
nounced. He stood near the top and
unfurled a 10-foot Jefferson pennant,
and said that it was to be presented
to the "live wire" turning in the great
est amount of money on the seat sale.
Already the greater part of the reser
vations for both nights are taken.
This . new system of offering some
special Inducement of this sort is
proving a greater impetus than the
old method of giving a complimentary
for every 10 tickets sold. However,
the February elaes is using both meth
ods, to apparent advantage.
The Jefferson Camera Club is begin
ning its era of activity. On Thursday
evening a week ago they held the in
itiation of new members. Some novel
and amusing stunts were arranged by
Several enthusiastic members have
applied to the authorities in charge of
the Manufacturers' and Land Products
Sshow and succeeded In obtaining a club
rate of 10 cents each for an afternoon
in the near future.
The girls' various organizations have
frequently of late been drawing on the
boys' pocketbooks by a series of candy
sales. On those occasions the girls
of each - organization are required to
prepare a quantity of home-made can
dles and bring them to the school.
There the donations are assembled in a
pile and assorted into bags and
sold in the main hall.
1 These affairs would be excellent for
both parties concerned were the girls
nil successful at every attempt. The
Home Economics Club, composed of
girls of the domestic science classes,
bring the material to school and make
their candy under the supervision of
Miss Flavis. Accordingly, these sales
nre welcomed, and etxensively pat
ionized. The Jefferson Technical Club mem
bers had the privilege of visiting the
Ford assembling plant last Monday aft
ernoon. With several teachers con
nected with the organization the boys
went to the plant. They were accorded
every courtesy by-the firm.
The Athletic Association officers, im
pressed by the success of offering felt
pillow covers to the Live Wires for
selling the greatest number of tickets
to the football games, have announced
a similar contest for the sale of tickets
to the Jefferson-Columbia game nxt
Tuesday. Forty dollars' worth of tick
ets were sold to people who did not use
them on the last occasion. 4o these
same people and others may be called
on to increase the numbers of ambi
tious Live M ires.
Inasmuch as every organization is
entitled to use the echool gymnasium
for one social function during each
semester the Jefferson Live Wires have
reserved the "gym" for a party Friday
Jn accordance with the new Jefferson
policy of doing away with the formali
ties and elaborate dresses on all such
occasions the Live Wires have decided
to set an example and require that
every girl wear a middy blouse or
some similar apparel and every boy
come in a flannel shirt without a stiff
collar. The object of this is primarily
to afford an impetus to a sentiment
which evidently prevails throughout
Heretofore girls and even boys have
hesitated to attend the various get
togethers because they did not feel
that they could comply with the stand
ard of apparel assumed by more for
tunate ones. Thus year more than ever
before has the inclination been notice
able on similar occasions to unite for
a royal good time to the exclusion of
Franklin High School Notes
BY SL'AXIAND COLLINS.
AT the meeting of the Dramatic Club
on Thursday November 4. it was
decided that a play be given on or
about December 1. On account of in
sufficient exits to the Franklin assem
bly hall the fire marshal has prohib
ited its use for such purposes so the
play will probably be given in the
Richmond assembly hall. Donald Mc
intosh, Everett Barbour and Eieanore
Farmer were appointed to make ar
rangements for the hall and the fur
nishings for the stage.' The play to
be given is at present undecided,
though the club has several under con
sideration. The committee in charge of the arm
bands to be given the members of the
football squad by the club, decided
upon a circle with an '"F" in the cen
ter, bound to an elastic band covered
with felt. An election for a new man
ager was also held in which Donaltf
Mcintosh received nearly 50 per cent
of the votes. A party was decided upon
for next Thursday afternoon in the
ochool assembly of which the main
feature will be the initiation of new

Franklin students are enthusiastic
over the numerous chances given high
school students to win their Christmas
money by writing prize essays.
The world will know that Portland
Is some "seaport" when all the essays
written by the pupils of the city
schools are finished, for the prize of

The regular meeting of the Parent
Teacher Circle was held in the Rich
mond School assembly hall Tuesday,
November 2. Air. Johnson, oX the Hod
man district, presided. A discussion on
"The Why and What of the Franklin
High Parent-Teacher Circle" was held
by Principal Ball and Mrs. J. J. Hand
faker. Mr. Ball also suggested that
the committee already appointed to go
before the School Board put in an ad
ditional protest against the cut in the
appropriation for improving the new
school grounds. The original appro
priation was $15,000 and at present the
board has decided on spending: only
$7000. " The speaker of the evening,
Rev. Mr. Spriggs, gave a heart-to-heart
talk on "The Heart of the Com
munity," in which he likened the
school, in its relation to the district,
to the heart of the body.
From the "Balance Sheet," printed
weekly by the press department of
commerce at Franklin, we note the
following: "We are soon to have a
new- building, a new equipment, a big
student body, a model business office,

bookstore, a student employment bu

Friday afternoon and evening. Novem

Shakespearean plays, not with the idea
that her: students are particularly
flitted to act Shakespeare, but with the
idea that it Is well worth the time
spent because it will enter into the
students' education in a way that the
modern play fails to do. This is the
fourth Shakespearean play Lincoln
students have given, the others being
"Twelfth Night," "Midsummer Night's
Dream" and "As You Like It," all of
which were immensely successful.
The cast, which is composed of stu

shops. The largest quantity of - the
material is manufactured in the elec

for the students to turn out the mate

In. connection with the electrical de

plays an important part in the train

Union High School Notes.
GRESHAM. Or.. Nov. 6. (Special.)
One of the best equipped high
schools, size and needs considered, in
the state Is the new Union High School
No. 2 at Gresham, where the new prin
cipal, Elmer Goodwin, is in charge.
Housed in a building that cost $25,000,
the school is supplied with the appa
ratus and school equipment found in
the modern, up-to-date city high
schools. A standard electric programme
clock was installed at the beginning
of the term, which does much towards
securing punctuality and system in the
work. The large assembly hall is
equipped with stationary desks . and
loose chairs, which are more com
fortable and an innovation along this
line In Oregon.
The school has an enrollment of
nearly 160 students, which is i3 per
cent above the number of students an
ticipated, and which taxes the new
building to its capacity the tirst year
and makes it necessary to enlarge the
bulldins at once to accommodate its
patrons. While the Union High School
No. 2 district is composed of five dis
tricts, there are now 54 students en
rolled from other districts and coun
ties. The Board of Education ie composed
of five of the progressive men of the
districts included in Union High School
District No. 2, with Mayor George W.
Stapleton as chairman and Karl A.
Miller, cashier of the Bank of Gresham,
The new principal is a wide-awake
school man, who has had many years of
successful experience at the head of
high schools and r.ormal schools in the
East, and who is determined to make
Union High School No. 2 one of the
leading high schools of Oregon. He
has already in contemplation several
new ideas as to high school work and
government which will be introduced
during the school year. A prospectus
was issued at the beginning of the
school year and compared favorably
with leading college and university
Athletic sports are entirely secon
