The membership of the two groups is determined by the leadership, scholarship, and citizenship of those students in the upper percentage. Those in the 15 per cent of l2f2, 10 per cent of l2fl, and 5 per cent of llf2 are selected. In the Junior Chapter 15 per cent of 92, 10 per cent of 9fl and 5 per cent of SQ. A faculty committee makes the selection once each year.

As the Senior Honor Society was not originally intended to be a social organization, its members selected educational trips as their speciiic project. Included in these trips was one to the Furniture Museum, which was recently openec to the public. Two of its members, Bob Coleman and Bob McNaugh' ton, were assigned to assist Mr. Teele with the neon sigr in the front hall. The societies' participation in the Creston- ite consisted of a check room. This year's activities were effected by its fourteen mem bers under the leadership of Marion Chown, president Arlene Johnson, vicefpresidentg and Eleanor Pigorsh, sec retary. An entirely different type of project characterized the activities of the Junior Honor Society which had as it: officers, Joe French, president, Jean Park, vicefpresident and Helen Kortlander, secretary and treasurer. This gorup organized themselves into what they termec the i'Volunteer S.C.S." Club, which was planned primarily for aiding teachers as the occasion demanded. The seconc project on the Society's program was lending support tc the Red Cross whenever called upon. Their special chargi at Christmas was to assist the children at St. John's Home At the Crestonite, the Society sponsored two concessions the Magic Mirror supervised by Neil Hogendyk, and thi Palmist's Booth directed by Helen Kortlander. As so many of the students were afhliated with othe organizations and working that evening, all of the member snatched bits of time to run up and work in the checl room. About 35.00 was collected that evening by th society. Pins containing the symbol o the National H o n o r Societie were purchased by students ii both groups.

Scheduled to be in the hands of the students on June 8, he Saga gave the editors a run for their money as they ushed to complete writefups, composition, cut lines and rrangement. "Knowing beforehand the exact amount of money which :an be used, the staff can put out a much better Saga," pref dicted Mr. john Van Krimpen, staff adviser, This year for the first time, subscriptions were taken at he beginning of the year, which made the work much asier.

C' Leadership, Scholarship Recognized At Honor Assemblies Held June 3 A silver cup, a mighty burst of applause, a lusty cheer, and another worthy student has been rewarded. Both the Junior and Senior High Honor Assemblies were held in the Creston auditorium June 3. Each year students are rewarded for their eiforts in scholarship and extrafcurricular activities at these assemf blies. For allfaround students, the E. C. Buss Cup is award' ed to boys, and the P.T.A. cup to girls. To give recognition for extrafcurricular activities rather than scholarship, a new type of award was introduced last year. Under the direction of Miss Ella von Spreckon, the honor point system was devised. By this method students ake slips each semester to be filled out by advisers of activif ies. A certain number of honor points is given to chair- men, officers of organizations, and workers. The trophy case, stationed in Creston's front hall, holds the awards, consisting of scholarship cups, which do not become the permanent property of the winners. The purpose of these honor assemblies is to encourage scholarship, extra activities, and arouse more enthusiasm in school life. The trophies in the front hall showcase prove an inspiration to all :tudents who longingly gaze at them. The football, basketball, airplane, md golf cups represent Creston's skill in these events and also much lard practice. The winner of the girls' tennis tournament is awarded a :up with the victor's name engraved upon it. Displayed also are the unior and senior high scholarship cups, the P.T.A. cup for girls and the B.
