S. gathered together for a dinner which was held at'the Catalina Cafe last Thursday at 6 p.m. Froin the reports of some of the boys they all heartily enjoyed themselves. Phil Arnold says: "For once I got enough to eat." John Marincovich voices vhe fact that: "Ev- erything was swell excepting that 1 had a pillar in my way". That lovable Junior, Silas Hathaway, modestly re- marked: "It was okay". These are only a few of the comments made on the dinner, but it was the belief that all thoroug~hly enjoyed themselves. A. H. S. ELEMENTARY NEWS The Americanization room with the help of their teacher, Miss Coons, are studying Mexican life. They are mak- ing a Spanish house and will trim it with Spanish flowers and vines. They have a large map of Mexico where they will point out the places On the map where their parents came from. A large Spanish mirror is now being constructed with figures portraying Spanish life.

The second and third grades, with their teacher, Miss Bennet, are study- ing Mexico and are planning to give a puppet show illustrating Mexican life. The fifth grade under the guidance of their teacher, Miss Tatum, are studying about Colonial days and pio- neers. In the sixt,h grade Jean Brown re- turned to school, having been absent quite a while on account of sickness.

Miss Poore recently succeeded Miss Margaret Waite, who retired after thirty years of service. .... A. H.I, SHOP CLASS PROJECTS All of the ~hop~lasses are coming along fine. The boys now have quite a number of pieces nearing completion that have been mentioned in previous articles and there are :a lot of new ones under way. Some of those about finished are a diving helmet by Silas Hathaway, some end tables by boys in the lower grades, and a small cabinet being made by. Tony Hernandez. John Franklin is making two very nice col- lection trays for the new church. Henry Brantley is just finishing a steel rack for the shop. There are four sets of door knockers being con- structed by Bill Kilgour, Blackie Sehatan, and Dick Church. GOSSIP What's the attraction at the candy store these days? Could it be the new manager ? Fooey ! Why does Jack Carson think he is so hot and rates with all' girls ? What has he got that the school's number one heart breaker, Silas Hathaway, hasn't got ? It's a relief to see a new face around school. Welcome, Milton Coffin, but beware of our girls! Here's to Bill Kilgour and that su- per-personality! We hear, however, he is starting a nudist colony. Dorothy B. has a dreamy look in those brown eyes of hers. We hope that trip over town proves entertain- ing. Margaret Carpenter, the A-1 student of the new music class (that's what s~he thinks) seems to know all the an- swers. The brain trust" of Avalon Hi, Galen Brown by name, was seen with a stack of books (as per usual) and two gor- geous hussies on his arms. Hot stuff! The three old gossipers of the elev- enth grade, Silas H:, Jack H., and little Stuart Kilgour, are always seen together chewing the rag. "Coach Foote" has a remedy (so she says) for all "gigglers". Just ask :her! Alice "Curly Carrot roots" Walsh had an accident recently. After this, look where you are going on a rainy afternoon. What about that letter found in the hall. It might give someone the wrong conclusion, Marcia P., and Jean H., or should we ask T. F, D. C., and S. H., about it ? Su,san B., why the big grin and why be so secretive? We know all about you walking to school with M. C. Thrill, thrill ! A. H. S. CAMP FIRE The Minahaushi Camp Fire Group was entertained at a Valentine dinner at the home of Alice Lee Heywood on Monday evening. Alice Lee, Alice Walsh and Hilda Salmon prepared the meal as one of the requirements of their Firemakers rank. Following the meal, each girl led the group in a game. All of these were new, unusnal and interesting. Those present were ' Refine , rude Threading the Needle After threading the needle, tie a knot in the end of the thread that was last broken from the spool and the thread will not kink.

They made the unusual bet that the one who caught the first fish should pay for all their dinners that niglit. Later on the Scotchman was telling about it. "Those fellows both had bites and wouldn't pull up their catch." "Then you lost the bet ?" "O'h, no! My hook wasn't baited." Mother : "When that naughty boy threw stones at you, why did yon not come and tell me, instead of throwing them back at him?" Willie: "What good would it do to tell you ? You couldn't hit the side of a barn." "My girl's divine!" "Your's may be de vine, but mine's de berries !" Settled , Mr:: "Dear, I've been thinking it over and I've decided to agree with yOU." Mrs.: "it won't do you any good. I've changed my mind!" "Jinmtie," said the teacher, "what is your greatest ambition ?" Jimmie: (considering thoughtfully) ." "I think," he said, "it is to wash mo- ther's face." Running Low Wedding Guest : "This is your fourth daughter to get married, isn't it ?" MacTight: "Aye, and our confetti's gettin' awful gritty." o The Average Wire (heatedly) : "You're lazy, you're worthless, you're bad-tempered, you're shiftless, and you're..." Husband (reasonably) : "Well, my dear, no man is perfect."
