The purpose of the club is to promote sociability, recreation and good fellowship. Officers have been elected as follows : President, Alice Lee Heywood; vice-president, Helen Greig ; secretary, Arlene Creaser ; treasurer, Shirley Pyle. These girls gathercd at the home of Miss Robinson November 10, in order to write the constitution and decide upon a name for the organizzation. Any girl of either depart:nent is en- titled to membership. At the first meeting the Home Man- agement Class will have charge of the decorations and refreshments. The Clothing and Art Classes will afford a very iuteresting progrmn. All activ- ities and entertainment will be plan- ned, prepared and directed by the club. A finer spirit of enthusiasm couhl not be shown toward Miss Robinson's idea, not only by students of the de- partment but by teachers as well. Miss Robinson expressed hopes that the club would be heard from in the near future. A. H.S.

However, most of the pupils will enj%v an old- fashioned turkey dinner, with all the trimmings, at home.

EDITORIAL Horace Mann is one of the most famous educators the United States has ever produced. He laid the foun- dation for America's cOlnlnon school system and organized the first Normal School. In 1819 he graduated from Brown University, then studied law at Lit(h- field, Conn. After nmch hard studying he was admitted to the bar. He practiced law for ten vears at Delham, Conn., and (luring the latter half of that time served in the state legislature. In 1883 he was elected to the State Senate, of which he became president. From the begiuning of his public life he showed a great enthu- siasm for philanthropy and for educa- tional reform. In 1837 a board of education was appointed to remodel the Massachu- setts school system, and Mann was made its secretary. To become this he had to give up his law practice and his political life. He gave all his at- tention to this matter. Many of his measures met wi'th violent disapproval, but he persisted, and in time not only Massachusetts, but every state in the Union, profited by his work. He also founded the first teachers' training school at Lexington, Mass. In 1846 he was elected to congress, where he remained until 1853. Fro:n 1852 until his death he was president of Antioch College at Yel- low Springs, Ohio. We celebrated his birthday on No- vember 9.--Bob Lytle. A. H. S. Friday evening, Stuart Kilgour will drive to Redlands with Miss Gross, where, on Saturday, he will visit the University of Redlands, and will inter- view professors, and look over the campus. /v Playing two extra quarters tA(a- cide which was the better teara, ~"0tf lon or the Catalina Island School~ Boys, and then to have the sc~,(oOd tie, can mean only one thing, a ~'0~ game.
