The oAutobiography of- Five more days until I can claim her as my own! Will the 3rd of February never come? The days have passed so slowly since we, I mean she, settled on the date. What will I do to pass the time? I have arranged everything with my tailor and I've ordered the flowers for the occasion. And, yes, the best man is to be A. Nunke, the friend who has traveled with me the most, and he is the finest fellow you could ever meet. He was born of a French mother and a Hebrew father and the combination in his blood gave him both a sense of practicalness and a sense of beauty and detail. The decision of who would be the officiating minister brought forth weighty arguments for both the Right Reverend P. R. Esshure and Doctor Sol. U. Shune, but it was finally settled that a bishop was better than a Cont. on page 4 BLUE DOMINO TAKES DRASTIC ACTION ON MEMBERSHIP RULES Constitution Amended; Scholarship To Be Basis Of Membership Eligibility A business meeting of the Blue Domino, in charge of the president, Ruth Cope, was held n Room 34, January 20th.

Rev. Stockdale Gives Commencement Address Feature This! If you were a senior—and you had to work six hours a day in school— and had six subjects—and "sat out" a chapel program each week—and "sat under" six tyrannous teachers—and one of them told you to write a readable theme of one hundred to one thousand words—and another told you to outline a whole civics supplement—and a third asked when you would hand in seventy Algebra problems—and the first teacher stressed readable—and the second wanted the outline to make sense—and the Algebra teacher wanted all the problems to be correct!—and then another teacher, bless her soul, told you to write a feature (what you are reading) —well, just Feature this! Announce Winners Of Highest Honors; Present Medal To Most Versatile Senior GIRL RESERVES TO HONOR SENIOR GIRLS Candle Service To Be Feature Of Farewell Meeting In High School Gym The Girl Reserves will meet Monday night, January 31, in the Gym, for the purpose of honoring the graduating seniors.

Many Boys Enrolled In Manuel Arts Course School Boasts Of Well-rounded Department Of Industrial Work Did you know that out of 536 boys in the high school, 230 of them are registered somewhere in the Manual Arts curriculum? That is almost fifty percent of our boys are interested in industrial vocations, forty-three percent, to be exact. No other elective course in A. H. S. is as popular as this one, yet many people don't hear much about it. Probably these people have never been down in the basement. If they had been, they would have found out that the entire west end of the basement is taken up by this department; that there are three shops and a drafting- room besides the storeroom. Upon inquiry they would also find out that all of them are well equipped. It would not take a great of searching to find any of the instructors, Messers. Pfouts, Kidwell, Snyder, and Foster, when they weren't busily engaged n teaching their respective subjects. The four year course, which is offered in this department, includes wood-work, mechanical drawing, cabinet making, cement making, pattern making, wood turning, machine drawing, machine shop work, and advanced mechanical drawing. The course aims to and well succeeds in preparing boys for vocational work in life. Fifty-six graduates received their diplomas last night. This was the smallest class to graduate from Alliance High School for several years. Its members number about half as many as last June's graduating class. Rev. Allan Stockdale of Toledo, a nationally known speaker, delivered the Commencement address. Herbert Whitacre, business manager of the Red and Blue received the most versatile senior medal. This is a medal given to the senior who in the opinion of the faculty, has proved to be the most versatile and dependable student during his four years of high school. Herbert is also treasurer of the Hi-Y and the Student Council. First honorable mention was given to Ray Reighart, second, Esther Kean, third, Evan Morris. (cont. on page 4) School Loses Three Athletic Stars End Bright High School Athletic Careers The end of this semester will draw the curtain on the high school athletic careers of three of our stellar athletes; namely, James Firth, John Boyle, and Ray Schaeffer. Firth is one of our few three letter men, having received letters in football, basketball, and track. "Jimmie," as he is better known around school, has been one of the main cogs in our football and basketball squad this season. "Johnnie" Boyle has earned the coveted "A" in both football and basketball. He has been on the varsity football team for four years, a feat which only a few boys accomplish, and was captain during his third year. Boyle, also, has made an enviable basketball record for himself. Ray Schaeffer, our lanky basketball center, has hung up an impressive mark in our two major sports, and has received letters in each. Ray has been a mainstay in both of these games throughout the past two seasons. The records that these boys have made will not soon be forgotten. They leave vacancies which will be extremely hard to fill. However, we as students of A. H. S. wish them the best of success in the future. Lincoln Essay Contest Held In History Classes Medal To Be Presented In Chapel A. H. S. History teachers recently announced to their classes that an essay contest would be held. The essays are to be five hundred words in length and are to be written upon any phase of Abraham Lincoln's life, as a subject. They must be in by February 4. The three judges, selected among those interested 'n the school, will choose the winner in time that the winning essay may be heard in student assembly on February 11. The prize, a fine bronze medal will be awarded at the same time.
