This year's sophomores proved that the old saying, "You can tell a sophomore, but vou can't tell him much," does not always hold true. This year we are very proud of our splendid showing on the honor roll. At the beginning of the first semester, the following officers were elected: Cleo Kopp, presidentg Helen Phelps, vice presidentg Bob Seeds, secretary-treasurerg Cecile Ames, Ernest Linden, Student Coun- cil. The sophomore class did its part in help- ing to make the Carnival another big suc cess. Carol Velde and Ernest Linden were the candidates for Queen and King. The All-School Christmas party was sponsored by our class. The first part of the evening was spent in playing games and dancing. The highlight of the party was the arrival of none other than Santa to tell us of his "Second Marriage." Be- lieve it or not, he also read us some letters that he had received from various students and teachers, telling him what they want- ed for Christmas. Last but not least, came the distribution of the gifts, candies and fruits. Even high school students think Christmas is incomplete without a Santa Claus. The sophomore boys made a fine show- ing in athletics this year. The reserve bas- ketball team was made up almost entire- ly of our sophomore boys. This included the following: Dan McKean, Jack Hannon, Dick Herder, Bob Perkins, and Billy Bar- ton. The former boys were on the football team, and also, Tom Mowbray, Eddie Mow- bray, Leland Wright, and Hyle Taylor. Al- though we had no outstanding athletes this year, we expect them to really "go to town" in the next two years. In fact this holds true for the entire class. Keep your eye on this class for scholarship, athletics and activities.

The Student Council members are Lucille Ryan and Dick Owens. The Freshman class advisors are Miss Bischoff and Mr. Wilcox. There were twenty-eight members of our class at the beginning of the year. Hazel and Jack Purvis moved from Bradford at the end of the first semester. This year the freshmen have the privil- ege of having a Freshman Glee Club. This is the first year we have had the opportun- ity of having a separate club. We meet twice each week. We feel that we have made good progress in our singing. Miss Bischoff was our conductor This year the freshman candidates for the Carnival King and Queen were Lucille Ryan and Dick Heinzmann. We had two booths for our class. The girls had the Col- umbus Game and the boys had "Spill the Milk." The freshman boys made a good show- ing at the turn out for athletics. Ten boys out of fourteen went out for football and basketball. Dick Heinzmann, Phil Harney and Bob Wright played with the second team in football. Sometimes Jim Maupin and Dick Owens got to help hold back the opponents. During the basketball season the fresh- man team won most of their games. The genuine interest of these boys helped con- siderably to overcome the handicap of their sm'all statures. James Maupin was chosen for the cast of "Lucky Star." We also have a, Freshman Dramatic club which meets once 3 week. We practice dramatic and speech fundamentals and work on some one-act plays. Miss Wass is our instructor. James Maupin and Lucille Ryan have appeared on the honor roll throughout the entire year. At some of our class meetings we had performances for the purpose of teaching us manners. We used as 9, text-book "Man- ners For Moderne." Committees were ap- pointed to act out the correct way of set- ting 'a table, introducing guests, eating at formal banquets and every day acts of cour- tes . 'lqhe enthusiasm and cooperation of this class was shown when the class entertain- ed the school with an Easter party the lat- ter part of March.
