CLASS MEETINGS The Seniors held a class meetin/ Wednesday to discuss ways and means of raising money for the Alumni Dance. It was decided that they would have a booth at the P.T.A. "Shindig." The rest of the period was spent in talk- ing about the pictures. tit Since Miss Davidson was not able to be as school last Wednesday, Mrs. Carpenter took charge of the Junior Class meeting. After a few announcements were made, the business began. The class needs to have some money for their page in the Torqua, so decided to have a candy sale Tuesday noon. . (t * The Sophomore Class meeting was one of those dark, mysterious affairs, and they reffise to speak about it. The Freshmen, in their meeting, de- cided to have a moonlight hike in April, when the nights are soft and bahny (this is not poetry). In all Class Meetings, it was an- nounced that every Wednesday a list of overdue books at the school library, would be read in every class and in this way enable Miss Pierce, our li- brarian, to keep track of the books. [t was also announced that if boy~ or girls with chickenpox, measles, etc., are seen on the streets, theatre or any social affairs, they should be spoken to by any student, and asked to stay at home and keep these diseases Crom spreading.

After the busi- ness meeting the ninth grade girls will put on, what promises to be the best program of the year, and, as you know that will mean that it will be pretty good. As one feature of their pro- gram, they will show us the difference between singing a song in the usual manner, and singing it, while stand- ing on their heads. SUGAR f""J A F GIRLS' ATHLETICS The Girls' Horseshoe Tournament is well started now that the boys have finished their's. Geraldine Eldon and Peggy Trias have each won as far as they have gone. The rest of the Jun- ior Hi girls have not completed this far yet. 8 lit * A new division of teams was tried last week in baseball. It has not yet been decided whether these teams will remain like this or not. Since it was raining Wednesday, the girls could not play, so they remained in Miss Hahn's room to study. SUGAR LOAF BOY'S TOURNAMENTS FINISHED The boys' horseshoe and handball tournaments are finished. Mike Reyes won the horseshoe tournament in one division and Manuel Barba won it in the other. Manuel also won the boy's handball tournament. SUGAR LOAF Kay--"Bernice is about the closest person I know." iona--"What makes you think so?"

Weren't we proud to introduce them to our rtew students, just to prove that the present students can't excel the past graduates in anything? We weren't the only happy ones. Those present can tell you of the wist- ful glances cast by the Alumni on va- rious objects about the building, re- calling fond memories. Although our building has been improved steadily each year, there are still many places which can be picked out by our Alum- ni, as spots marking events which bring back happy remembrances. While dancing to the wonderful mu- sic of the Avalon 5 or 6, it was so nmeh easier to talk over old times, but time passed so quickly that we didn't get half our conversations completed. At intermission, the Alumni gathered in the library to form an Alumni or- ganization. Now that our Alumni numbers 16, with four more coming, it will help them to keep in touch with one another. They asked for a page in the 1927 Torqua, which was given to them with much pleasure. Although some of our AlumnicouhI not get to the dance, and many pres- ent students were unable . to attend, there was still a jolly enough crowd to make every minute lively. The hall, which was decorated in school colors, called forth many words of praise from all the visitors. The refreshments, made by the boys' cook- ing class, also made quite a hit. The Alumni present were: Betty Berrfing, Florence Feltrop, Martha Meyer, Dor- is Wilcox. Edyth Stone, Tom Daly. John Minney, Malcolm Renton and Edward \-an Alstyne. The evening passed all too quickly for everyone, but we hope that the future Senior classes will keep up the tradition and giwe many more affairs in honor of the Alunmi. Few of us know what it really means to the Alumni to come back for a visit, if only for an evening. SUGAR LOAF ORCHESTRA Last week the orchestra held its first meeting under Miss Fox. They began work on several new pieces. After practice, it was suggested that the or- chestra meet twice a week, instead of only once. In addition to Monday night at seven o'clock, they will meet Thursday after school. SUGAR LOAF EXCHANGES The Girls' League of Jefferson High School, had the pleasure of hearing Dr. Aurelia Reinhardt, President of Mills College, speak to them the other day. The Whittier High School is going to give their mid-year play, "The Road to Yesterday," the last of this month. SUGAR LOAF Owing to a severe attack of throat trouble, Miss Davidson was absent from school a day or so last week. Mrs. Carpenter ably conducted her classes.

First, they saw a very in- teresting picture in the assembly room. Then they went down stairs and had some delicious refreshments. The stu- dents of Miss Fox's music class were next given the pleasure of hearing these children sing. 9UGAR LOAF Card of Appreciation 'i'he party given last Friday even- ing in honor of the past graduates of Avalon Hi was deeply appreciated by the Alumni. It not only furnished a jolly time for them, but also provided the opportunity to form an associa- tion which, as it grows year by year, will be one of the happy influences in their lives. To the Seniors, and to all who help- ed in any way to make this affair such a. splendid success, the Alumni express their heartiest thanks. Secretary of Avalon Hi Alumni. SUGAR LOAF The pastor of a colored church no- ticed a new face in his congregation, and after the service he hurried down to greet the newcomer. "Mr. Johnson, this is the first time you've been to our church. I'm mighty glad to see you here." Mr. Johnson replied: "Ah had to come, pahson. Ah needs strengthen- in'. Ah's got a job whitewashin' a chicken-coop and buildin' a fence around a watermelon patch." Miss Davidson, the Biology teacher, recently received a paper from a stu- dent entitled "The Psychology of For- getting." She had to advertise for the owner, for the student had forgotten to put his name on St.
