Miss Coppock's ninth grade social science and English classes are study- ing the Civil War period. They have just memorized the Gettysburgh ad- dress which they recited last T~hurs- day. They have also been reading "The Perfect Tribute" by Mary Ray- mond Shipman Andrews, which was shown in moving pictures last year with "Chic" Sales playing the part of Abraham Lincoln. STUDENTS SHOW INTEREST IN STUDY OF ADVERTISING Stacks of advertising clippings have piled up on Miss Hotchkiss as her Business Principles' students become more enthusiastic about their new project. They are studying how consumers are made interested in buying, and find the ways are many and varied. Radio, newspaper samples, and dem- onstrations, are but a few kinds of advertising. The sales appeal of articles which includes such things as beauty, dura- bility and economy, and the types of agencies protectingthe consumer, have been discussed. A profitable period was spent with Miss Rex. She explained about one agency and told of different books, fiction and non-fiction, that deal with such protection. Students, taking this work agree that for practical use, Business Prin- ciples is an excellent subject.

EDITORIAL On Monday of this past week, a notable anniversary took place. Al- though many of us are unaware of the fact that the first non-stop Transpa- cific air flight transpired five years ago, notice should be taken of the start of a project which recently cul- minated in theflight of the famous China Clipper. The two performing this feat were Clyde Pangborn and Hugh Herndon. Little did they realize when this task was accomplished that such a valuable establishment as a regular passenger and mail commercial service would spring into existence. The China Clipper made its initial flight from San Francisco to Honolulu April 15 and 16, 1935, and completed its first regular trip at Manila, No- vember 29, 1935. The total actual fly- ing time was 59 hours, 49 minutes. The necessary fueling stations are located at one of the Midway Islands, Wake Island, and at Apra, Guam. These islands, otherwise of little use, have become stepping stones to one of the greatest achievements in the history of aeronautics. Many "impossibles" of the past have been solved by this generation, while our problems await the futnre.--Alice \Valsh. who are as follows: Phil Conrad, President; Phil Arnold, Vice- Presi- dent; Galen Brown, Secretary; Nick Garcia, Treasurer; Ernest Church and Harley Berning, Sergeant-at-Arms. The first business under the new of- ricers was that of accepting the re- vised constitution. This was followed by the motion to change the insignia of the club. Many different types were suggested and discussed. They were then voted on and a new one was adopted. The next business en- tailed proposals for the initiation of new members. Each novitiate is spon- sored by a member of the organiza- tion. However, nothing definite will be decided until next meeting. The number of active members has been greatly reduced since last year. A. H. S. "RHYTHM BAND" ORGANIZED The third grade, not to ge outdone by the High School Orchestra, is or-~ ganizing a Rhythm Band, under the direction of the third grade teacher. The whole class of 34 students will take part. At present the class is learning how to make drums and will soon be making their uniforms. Plans for concerts are being made and we eagerly await the first one. The first grade is learning to dis- tinguish colors and is doing nicely in this work. The first three grades of the Ele- mentary are for the first time doing manuscript work. This usually was started in the fourth grade. Lois Nicolas of the fifth grade is now going to school in Alhambra. A. H. S. CAMPFIRE GROUP MEETS The Minahaushi Camp Fire group held its regular meeting on Monday evening. Harriet Irvin, Margaret Carpenter and Loree Vickers have transferred into this group from the Starhise group. Two new members, Barbara Jamock and Florence Baker were welcomed into the group. A discussion was hehl concerning money-making projects and it was de- cided that the ~roups would sell (Continued on Page 12, Col. 3)
