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.
