We have on hand $120.95. With this start there is no limit to what we intend to put over next year. I think we owe Mr. Dunkle a unani- mous vote of thanks for the capable way he has organized the High School this year. With his ever-ready, re- liable advice, we expect to make next year a banner year in everything-- especially dramatics and athletics. "this year the pupils have shown their ability in the two plays, Spread- ing the News and The Florist Shop, which were both successfully given. We have also started the ball roll- ing in athletics. This has been shown by the tennis tournament, basketball games, track meets and other athletic events. LOVING CUPS The Avalon High School has been unusually fortunate this year in hav- ing Mrs. Caroline B. Adams, of Los Angeles, interested in it. Mrs. Adams, who spends her sum- mers at Camp Bonnie Blue on Clar- essa avenue, has generously donated two beautiful inscribed loving cups for the tennis championships for this yea.r, which went to Edythe Stone, winner of the girls' singles, and John Botello, winner of the boys' singles. Mrs. Adams, who was not able to be here to present the cups, sent them with a letter of regret to us. They were formally presented to the win- ners by Mr. Dunkle at the meeting of the Avalon School Association on Tuesday evening of last week. On Thursday a telegram was re- ceived from Mr. Fred Adams which said that he would be pleased to pre- TRACK MEET The boys track meet is over, and many of the boys are proud possessors of blue and gold ribbons, designating first place. As the girls' track meet is not com- pletely over (we go to press Friday), I'II leave the final summing up of events for next week's editors." Wednesday it was held at the gram- mar school.

RULES FOR EXAMINATIONS 1--Enter the room nonchalantly. 2--Have both hands out of your pockets. 3--Go and say something to the teacher. 4--Whatever you do, appear at ease. Get a bunch of fellows together in the back of the room and tell them a story, 5--When the professor tells the class to separate, get a seat well to the front and to the left. This will throw him off his guard. 6--Be sure and have plenty of paper. Any extra will come in handy. 7--Roll up your sleeves to show that you have nothing concealed. 8---When you get through, be sure and separate all papers out of the loose sheets. 9--Look carefully around the seat be- fore you leave. 10--Tiptoe from the room and slam the door after you.

Advantages of systematic Study To master subjects we must confine ourselves to systematic study only. It is needed in schools as well as at home. A mother arranges with systematic precision the events of her day, such as marketing, calls, housework, etc. We pupils should arrange our studies at night in the same way. The daily visit of the postman doesn't seem to be much to us, until we happen to think that the postman has to systematically sort and arrange his mail before beginning his route. System is necessary to be a good editor. It is uneconomic to have good material and for lack of systematic arrangement let it scatter to the four winds, and then have to hunt up a new supply. Systematic arrangements and study save energy, time and worry. Nice Girl, This I went to a fountain with Mary, And met with an awful mishap; For I awkardly emptied a bottle Of soda all over her lap.
