ally ill. Gerald Slocum, president of

rious merits of Miss Wright's willing

school's best wishes go with Miss
Wright, and also the hopes that every
thing be so arranged that she will be
able to return, and again work with
us, by the first" of the second semes
ter. Freshman Pennant Arrayed.
Last Friday was a very important
day for the freshmen, for they dis
cussed the advisability of procuring
their pennant. The class of '31 de
cided to take a few precious pennies
from their treasury and buy the beau
tiful green and white material. For
tunately for the class they had an
efficient Betsy Ross in the person, of
Doris Hiatt, who designed the pen
nant. A few of the more energetic mem
bers hung the new creation in the
assembly, at the designated place.
There it hangs on the north wall,
seeming to proudly boast the fact
that is reprseents the class of '31,
even though it is undersized, in com
parison with the other class pen
nants. The class lost the privilege to
choose their own ideal ensignia until
next year, when the sophomores de
feated them in the anunal class rush.
JUNIOR CLASS PLAY.
The Juniors are anxiously await
ing the men from the John V. Gra
ham company of Portland to put up
the curtain for the new gymnasium
tage. This is a cycloiama curtain,
which consists of a neutral colored
background, for the rear of
The junior boys are going to make
the doors, windows and fire place to
be used in the play, under the di
rection of Mr. Burgess. These fix
tures are to be the property of the
sch'ool, and may be used in the fu
ture for performances of this nature.
The most strenuous work on the
play will be within the remaining
two and & half weeks after the
Thanksgiving holidays. Miss Pearson
states that she is very well pleased
with the way each individual is tak
ing hold of his part, and everything
points to a successful performance.
The fifth and sixth grade girls are
very interested in their indoor base
ball games. The stormy weather has
retarded their practice the past week
but not their enthusiasm. They are
looking forward to their physical
training work in the new gymnasium.
The sixth grade is progressing
quite rapidly in learning the sixteen
rules of the flag code.
Six week examinations were in
vogue in the sixth grade Tuesday and
Wednesday of this week.
The fifth grade Is very proud of the
new plants that James Beamer
brought for te window boxes. These
help to make the room much more
cheerful and attractive.
Ray McRoberts of the fifth grade
has ben absent from school the past
week on account of illness.
The sixth grade has been challeng
ed to a spelling match for Wednes
day afternoon by the fifth grade.

ing for the great event and hoping
to be the winner.

days in Portland where they will take
music lessons. Margaret is studying
the violin under Virginia Danforth,
Ruth the cello under Prospera Pazzi.
The girls also take an ensemble les
son for trio work. From Portland
they will go to Kent, Wash., to visit
The first and second grades have
had their pictures taken standing on
the steps of the new gymnasium
which makes a splendid background.
The photographer, Mrs. Boggs, has
finished the picutres which proved to
be quite good.
The volley ball court is crowded
with players and onlookers. The
seventh and eighth grade girls and
boys are especially enthusiastic over
the game and some good players are
developing. It has been noticed that
even high school students and facul
ty members are joining the seventh
and eighth grades in the sport.
Many of the grade school children
attended the matinee at the Star
theater Saturday afternoon. It was
a portrayal of the life of Christ as
shown in the Passion Play, which is
dramatized every ten years in the vil
lage of Oberammergau, in Bavaria.
The second grade is carrying out a
Thanksgiving project called Pilgrim
Life. This has followed the study of
Indians and the story of the Dutch
people, their dress, customs and lan
ugage. The history is centered around the
stories of the Pilgrims in England,
Holland and America.
The reading lessons have been
teresting stories about the Pilgrims
Appropriate poems have been learn
ed and parts of the Pilgrim story
dramatized for language work. The
project will end with the story of
the first Thanksgiving and a panto
mime of the story.
Posters illustrative of the seasons
are being made.
The officers of the second grade
this week are: Freddie Farrior, room
tender; Renn Harris, goards; Ar
thur McAtee, charis; Vera Stickles
has charge of the health record.

orized teacher of whistling in the

iiiande. While there she wiii have

ken will spend his vacation at Hood
River. Miss Murray will go to her

Beighle will spent the holidays at Mr.
Beighle's home in Kalama, Wash.
Misses Benenhoff, Thorpe and Wilson
are motoring to Walla Walla. Those
teachers remaining home are Mrs.
Smith. Mrs. Rogers, Miss Gase and
The American history class has
started another paper on "The Mak
ing of Our Constitution." This is
the third paper that these students
have been working on this year. A
number of history books have been
sent to the class from the state li
Irary, which will help them in writ
ing the theme.
The news inches were collected
Monday, November 21, and it was
found that Virginia Dix, edtior of the
grade news, was in the lead, having
a total of twenty-five inches. Onez
Parker, editor of boys' sports, came
next with ten inches. He did not,
however, have his notebook up to
date. It is probable that there will
be a close race between Virginia and
The Latin class is diligently pre
paring for speed tests. These will
create great competition between
students as well as groups of stu
dents, which will work in relaying
form. These tests chiefly concern
the Latin vocabularies. Eachstu
dent's time for the declension of a
noun or the conjugation of a verb,
will be kept on a chart. At the end
of the semester it is hoped that slow
students will be able to keep up with
the fast ones.
Coach Beighle of the grade school
plans to start basketball as soon as
the holidays are over. A winning
team is promised this year.
The typing classes are keeping
graphs of their accuracy and speed
tests, in order to measure their prog
ress. The present ten minutes test
will later be lengthened into fifteen
minutes as the class gains in effi
ciency. The advantage gained from
graphing the results of the tests is
that the progress of the class can be
read at a glance.
The bane of high school students
has again rolled around in the form
of the six week's examinations. It
is a noticeable fact that far more
books are being taken home by the
students. Those that occupy them
selves in some other way than to
study each lesson as it comes, "cram"
:or the examination.
The last rally of the football sea
son was held Friday evening. Though
the rain made it short and not as
large a crowd as usual, it was a meet
ing of genuine, pep and enthusiasm.

Condon football player. A dummy
had been tryingly placed on a chair
on the stage, but due to its weakness
it's sitting posture could hardly be
called a success.
Its one unhappy, painful look made
nearly every student feel that broken
bone or sore stomach that many of
the footbal boys have experienced.
