PROMETHEAN Promethean was organized by a group of high school girls several years ago for girls inter' ested in Dramatics. The club is made up of nine members, four seniors, three juniors, and two sophomores. Each year a study is made of some person famous in the theater, this year the choice being Katherine Cornell. . The club also had outside speakers at several of the meetings. Among them were Mrs. Fletcher, Mrs. Kendall, and Miss Berryman. This year for the first time, pins were bought consisting of two masks, symbolic of the drama. The annual trip to Chicago was made in january to see Alfred Lunt and Lynn Fontaine in Amphitryon 38.

. HI-Y The Hi-Y Club is a Christian organization which endeavors to guide young men toward advancing society to a better and higher life. It gives them a chance to express their own ideas and put them into actual operation. They gain experience in cofoperative work, learn to take responsibilities, and thus build up self-confidence and a good character. Q The HifY Club engaged in many activities during the past year and succeeded in accom- plishing some worthfwhile things. Two members of the club were present at the annual Older Boys' Conference held in Grand Rapids in the fall of 1938. Also, in the month of December this organization staged its most successful party in recent years. It sponsored various types of sup- pers at the Y.M.C.A. at which someone usually ate more than his capacity. The HifY has been very active in sports the past two seasons, playing exchange games of baseball with other clubs and playing in an intramural basketball league. Although not highly successful in sports this season, a high degree of comradeship was developed among the members of the club. Mr. john Bridgham is the HifY's distinguished advisor, and we, the HifY members, wish to thank both him and Mr. Champion, Boys' Secretary at the Y.M.C.A., for their time, co-opera' tion, advice, and guidance which have been an invaluable part of the club.

TRIANGLE CLUB The object of the Triangle Club is to create, maintain, and extend high standards of Christian character throughout the school and community. The Triangle Club, being a Junior organization of the HifY, is concemed in general with the same aims as that organization. One of the aims of the club is to help new students become better acquainted in the school. The club has sent two student representatives to the HifY Conference at Lansing and has also contributed to the Good Fellows Fund during the Christmas season. Mr. Foncannon, our advisor, has moved the club along at a rapid clip this year. OFFICERS President ......... Norman Ruth Vice President . . . William Brown Secretary . . . . .

SIGMA LAMBDA SIGMA Sigma Lambda Sigma, the senior literary society, was started in the fall of 1928 by Miss Hazel Harrington, instructor in English, and four senior girls: Mary Wilson, Jennie Grossman, Pauline Krezir, and Iris Winklepeck, who took a very active interest in literature. Sigma, Lambda, and Sigma are the Latin names for the three letters S.L.S. representing Senior Literary Society. The constitution was drawn up and eight other girls were invited to join, it being strictly a senior club. Each year the club members elect from the Junior class of that year their successors, who must have a good scholastic standing and must show a decided interest in literature. Two meetings are held each month, on the second and fourth Mondays. At each of these meetings one member of the club reports on the life and writings of some contemporary author. One of 'the club's purposes is to purchase several new outstanding books for the school library. This year some very interesting meetings were held at the various homes of the fourteen mem' bers. Such authors a Cather, Morley, Deeping, Poe, Bromfield, Wharton, etc., were reported on and discussed. OFFICERS President ......... Ruth Holder Vice President . . ..... jane Foley Secretary . . . .

WRITERS' CLUB At the beginning of the year, when questionnaires were sent out asking the students what new clubs they wanted, some eighty said they wanted a writers' club. The Writers' Club was organized as a result of this need. To be sure, we did not get eighty members. Some were too shy or fwe suspectj too lazy to join, so we started with a modest dozen. Our meetings were extremely informal and we wrote whatever and whenever we felt like it. However, we had accumulated a fair amount of good material by spring. Feeling that we needed a more formal organization with a view toward a more permanent club, we reorganized the club in April, renaming it Escritoire, and inviting in promising junors and sophomores. The Club now numbers about twenty, the new members being Bill Brown, jean Bellows, Jane Ewers, john Ackenhusen, Vern Beckwith, Betty Henke, David Kahn, Betty Soper, Marie Moore, Eris Jacobsen, Eleanor Howard, Elmer Reil. With this nucleus we hope that Escritoire will go on to finer things next year and become a vital part of the English program.
