If she had been in. his place she would undoubt- edly have cried and perhaps stamped her foot and, at any rate considered herself the most abused person 1n the universe. Dick had come to his senses by thls t1mc and said quickly, llThank you very much, Su51e3, How long it was since he had called her that!

Everywhere they were greeted with cheers and merry salutations. Susie and Florence Donelly were sitting at the back end of the wagon swinging their feet. The latter ehattered affably but the former was deaf to all noise. She was busily thinking. All her fun had been spoiled now that Dick was not going to play. Probably the visiting team would 'win-just as that mice behind the wall had said.

Shouts arose from the grandstand and cheers from the side- lines. The air seemed to contain a solid confusion of orange, black and crimson. At the end of the first half the score was five to six in favor of the op- posmg team. Dick was on hand in time to play the second half and in five minutes. had made a touchdown. Susie yelled and waved her pennant to her hearts content. Everyone was excited and the ltCtrimso-nlsll were looking worried.

The Adelphi Literary Society. The Adelphi is the only literary organization in the high school. -anut one hundred sixteen stu- : dents are members. in adition to several of the faculty. This year the society did not begin work until the second semester. Since then some interesting literary and musical programs have been given at the meet- ings. held on alternate Monday evenings. The inter- lass debates. Senior-Junior and Sophomore-FrEs-h- en, attracted a good deal of attention and much ass spirit was shown. The Oratorical Contest also Mk place before the society. At one meeting there 5 a mock city council, composed of several members. In financial matters the 'Adelphi has been a suc- cess, for about thirty-flve dollar's have been given to the Athletic Asociatio-n. A very important place in high school is filled by a good literary society. We need in 011T student days, training in public speaking and debating and a knowledge of current events-aims for which every such organization works. Due to its inexperience, the Adelpvhi has not accomplished what it might along these lines, but as its members gain experience, we. know it will become of increasing value to the school. -E.y R.
