AHS DOPES TAKE LEAD. Last week Bombard's Dopes took the lead in the .intramural league when they met and defeated Salamu- novich's VCheatie Eaters by a score of 17 to 11. The game was very close all the way, with both teams taking the lead several times. In the sixth inning, with bases load- ed, Bombard hit a home run that helped put the game on ice. Both pitchers were in bad form and allowed quite a few runs to cross the plate. The winning pitcher was Mead, the losing, Salamunovich. Batteries were Mead and Ryan, Salamunovich md Machado. The line-ups were as follows: Dopes. Wheatie Eaters. B. Mead p P. Salamunovich S. Ryan c F. Machado J. Sanchez Ib L. Furey H .Hufford =2b B. Thomas C. E&lers 3b F. Hernandez R. Sanchez .ss L.

Daisy Poteet and Jean Long will take all orders. The price of the Torqua is $1.03. the system. It is the first of a series ing Christmas vacation. of tesfs which will be given by Miss Gross to the eighth grade. From this series of iesiis will be determined the 9th grade:classes for whiah the students are, best fitted. Parents will be given an opportunity to see the results of these tests and to confer with the counselor regarding each ml- pil's plans for his or her )~further ed- ucation. AHS INTEREST SHOWN. Many of the visitors on operl house night, spoke very highly of the note books that the seventh and eighth grade had made in Social Studies. They said that they thought the work was much more interesting today than when they went to school. They read some of the stories and were much interested in them. Many asked exactly what we have tried to cover in seventh and eighth grade So- cial Studies. They were very pleaksed that we used no text books, but drew upon the whole library instead. Many thought it strange to hold a class in the library where the children sat around the tables instead of in the regular class room style. More interest was shown in the actual work of the children than ,usual. AHS VOICE CLASS TO GIVE RECITAL The voice class will give a recital on June 5th art two o'clock in the Music Room. Each girl is going to give a solo. The audience will be made up of townspeople which each girl will have invited. Refreshments will be served. The orchestra will play for Bacca- laureate, and the Glee Club will sing at Commencement. Miss Frey's 7th grade English Class last week had two conversation cla~ses. One day they talked about dogs, and the next day they talked about movies. A HS If you don't trade in Avalon we all lose money.

Hite's Pachukes stretched their win- ning streak to two games by dumping the Wheatie Eaters 12 to 5 in ~. regu- lar hitting spree. Salamunovich was quite wild in this game, walking several men and al- lowing nineteen hits. This was the Wheatie Eaters first defeat at the hands of the Pachukes. Following is the line-up: Paehukes.
