was celebrated by the students of

exercise on Monday, April 11, at nine
o’clock. At this time the girls who had
made a record for scholarship and
good conduct signed the book and re
ceived privileges accompanying this
honor. The book is called “Gold Book”
because it represents truth, utility,
beauty, and permanence, all of which
are found in gold. Each girl pledges
to follow these ideals as she signs her
name. Miss Elba Hennenger, of the
department of English spoke on “What

meeting to order, then turned it over
to Miss Mary Wheeler, the faculty ad

that of having juniors dressed in cos

There was a discussion as to what

IT’S SOME JOB
Getting out a school paper is no pic
If we print jokes, folks say we are
If we dont, they say we are too se
If we publish original matter they
say we lack variety.
If we publish things from other
papers, we are too lazy to write.
If we stay on the job we ought to be
out rustling news.
If we are out rustling news we are
not attending to business in our own
If we don’t print contributions, we
don’t show proper appreciation.
