THE JUNIOR CLASS If you you heard

happened

one Friday to be calmly strolling through the halls, and large commotion coming from Room 117, you would know it was just the juniors at work. The illustrious junior class has for its officers: Joan Herrin as president, Morton Seymour as vice president, and Susan Janse as a

secretary-treasurer. This year, as always, it has been the juniors' problem to raise money for the Junior-Senior Prom. As this prom is always a luxurious and expensive affair, a large amount is needed. Our first project to raise this money was a dance with a gay nineties theme. The decorations were of crepe paper, and each table was decorated with candles, paper hats, and paper horns. A juke box afforded the dance music, and a gala floor show entertained all. The dance turned out to be a great success and gave the juniors a great part of the much needed money. The second project didn't take as much hard labor or effort, but it netted a lot of money. For we found that selling cokes and candy at football games was very successful. By now we had sufficient funds for the prom. But, being such a warm-hearted class, we extracted twenty-five dollars from the treasury to pay for a poor family's Christmas. Even though it was for a good cause, it set us back quite a lot. We had to start raising money again. This time the class as a whole decided to have one more dance, and make it a circus dance. Great plans were formed amid great confusion. But by the night of the dance all was done and done well. The gym was decorated very abundantly with crepe paper, and looked beautHul. These decorations took a lot of hard junior work, but they were the best this year. Also at this dance there was an orchestra to furnish the music. The junior stunt show was held as an added attraction. Freshmen, sophomores, juniors, and seniors took part in it. The juniors won the prize for their vice versa wedding. The dance was a wonderful success. It was the largest Kinkaid has ever had and the most profit足 able. This of course pleased us money-loving juniors. All in all, the juniors are a very hard working group, and under the capable leadership of Mrs. Clifford, who, incidentally, we couldn't do without. have accomplished a great deal. So move over, seniors, we think we're quali足 fied to fit your shoes, and we're a little anxious for those back seats. Pardon us if we push too hard.

nouncement.

At Christmas time we were also very busy. Our class took a needy family and provided a happy Christmas for it by wrapping qifts, bringing food. and contributing money. When the juniors had their second dance of the year for the purpose of raising money for the Junior-Senior Prom. the four classes of the high school put on' different skits. The sophomores decided to do a typical scene in the theatre showino all the movie pests with their popcorn, large obstructive hats crackling pctper, feet stuck out in the oisle. and other such annoyances. At another time Miss Paton gave us a personality test. I think that quite a few of us were surprised at our grades and de足 cided that there was room for improvement. Altocether.

THE FRESHMAN CLASS The freshman class, as a new, untried knight, stepped rather timidly into of high school last fall. But over a period of months this group, after having challenged and met many obstacles, has emerged with more self足 confidence. the

arena

The class has gained recognition for its generosity in contributing to the Red Cross, the Community Chest, and other charitable organizations. It has shown the enthusiasm and sympathy of the very young. One of the first obstacles which were encountered was the Christmas dance. There were times during the undertaking when the young "knight" was almost unseated. Elaborate plans were made hurriedly, with Mrs. Owens and Mrs. Reeves assisting in the floor show. Milton Black was in charge of the ticket sale, Francita Stuart provided for the music, and Sarah Faulkner took charge of refreshments. On the night of the dance, the catastrophes came in swarms. The nickel足 odean turned temperamental and refused to play; the comedians turned their backs to the audience and couldn't be heard; the dancers tripped over the microphone; and by the time the finale came along, the microphone was so discouraged that it refused to work. But, despite the difficulties, the dance was termed a success by the dancers.

The officers of the freshman class have many talents. The president, Preston Moore, not only can preside over a meeting, but also plays champion足 ship golf. Milton Black, besides being a very able secretary, seems to know a lot about the furniture business, judging from a competent explanation that gave in a homeroom meeting. The treasurer, tary affairs of the class skillfully.

The freshman class, now a slightly older and wiser knight, is proud of year's achievements and hopes and expects to contribute much more to

the social and scholastic life of Kinkaid during the next three years of its high school career.

The last game of our successful season was played with the Crosby A-string. We managed to beat them by the small score of 18-13, after a wait of a few hours for them to arrive. Car trouble caused this

delay. The girls' basketball team has never before had such a full season as we had this year. With so many games played, we managed to win the greater percentage of them. The success of this team for the season certainly should be attributed to the hard..and persistent work of Miss Bartlett, the coach.
