They have tried under their hard woriang president, Juanita Burkett, to bring sunshine to the people around them. Every sunshine girl must learn and try to follow this creed. " With love in my heart, forgetting self, and with charity for all, I shall make the object of my life helpful- ness and kindness to others. 1 shall try to fit myself to give intelligent service in making my community a safer and more beautiful place in which to live. Thus will my own life become rich and more complete. " We also sponsored the Basketball King and Queen, Ideal Ladies ' Tea and Sunshine and Hi-Y Banquet. 34 Hl-Y Hi-Y is a voluntary organi- zation for boys, from sophomores to seniors. They are trying to create, maintain, and extend, throughout the school, and com- munity, a higher standard of Christian character.
