Thalians Enlighten Poetic Interest
This is the first year of an active Thalian
Literary Society in DeVilbiss High School. Be-
cause the Perielean Literary Society, our sponsors,
study literature we have as our purpose the study
of poetry. Mary Hill, our vice-president, was in
charge of the programs. These consisted of an-
thologies of American and British poets given by
the various members.
On the first and third Monday night of every
month one was able to hear the din and clatter
of the Thalians merging from one of the member's
Flourishing her black whip, Dorothy Esser,
as sergeant-at-Arms, quieted the members in or-
der that our chaplain, Jane Leber, might lead them
in prayer. Witli one year of shorthand behind
her, Nancy Osgood, our industrious recording sec-
retary, wrote incessantly as our president, Lois
Foor, began the business meeting. Down on her
knees, Ruth Brogan, treasurer, begged certain con-
servative members to pay their dues and Barbara
Black, pen in hand, wrote the invitations to the
Before the social part of the meeting a sum-
mary of the activities throughout the year was
given by Marilyn Weike1', our Inter-Club Council
The first of our social events was a pot-luck
dinner given in honor of the junior members. A
few weeks later we enjoyed a tobogganing party,
even though our good-natured advisers, Mrs.
Stoepler and Miss Mildred Johnston. complained
of frostbitten toes for the week that followed. Our
last event of the year was a tea given in honor of
This year has been an enjoyable one for the
members and advisers alike. The club that start-
ed with twelve seniors and later added eight jun-
iors, grew in good name as well as in size. We
hope that through the years the Thalians will
continue to advance and be a credit to our spon-
sors. to our advisers, and to DeVilbiss High School.

the meeting with a prayer. Jeanne Davies. Record-

for the minutes of the last meeting. Nancy Ander-

This procedure is exaggerated for we really
accomplished a great deal at our meetings. This
year we studied writers contemporary with the
twentieth century, and we studied and later saw
the musicals, Carousel and Shotcboat, when they
came to the Paramount Theater. The lives and
the books we enjoyed most were those of Molnar
and his play Liliom, Louis Bromfield and Mrs.
Parkington. Hemingway and For lT'lmm the Bells
Toll, Edna Ferber and Slzorrbonf.
We Peries couldn't have gotten along and
our year wouldn't have been so successful if it

And of course we all racked our brains for
a clever, original way to elect the king and queen
of our annual DeVilbiss Week. The fun and ex-
citement of this special week more than repaid
us for our work.
We are all grateful for the opportunities that
the Periclean Literary Society offered us. Xve
were able to better understand todays literary
works, to develop our talents. and to make many
lasting friendships. To the Pericleans we tie many
memories which will never be lost.

Sub-Debs Sanction Spirited Fun
One cold, dark, starless night in November,
eighteen little shivering juniors were initiated at
the homes of Nancy Reister and Mary Lou David.
After going through all the stunts the seniors had
rigged up for them, they were presented with cor-
sages and congratulations at l..ou's house.
Lighting ODI' way through the year were
Marion Rees, Presidentg Grace Yarnell, Vice-
Presidentg Joanne Lankenau, Secretaryg Elizabeth
Strout, Treasurerg and Carol Michelsen. Chaplain.
Our advisers, Miss Mildred Pasch and Miss
Marie Lerche, set a shining example for us by
their pleasant ways and helpful suggestions.
Our first highlight of the year was decorating
the archway by 122 for Christmas. At the head of
the decoration committee was Mary Lou David.
The theme of the decorations was "The Night Be-
fore Christmasf, Although we didn't win the
prize, it had been great fun decorating.
Then we focused the spotlight on our Moth-
ers' Tea which we held at the Toledo Museum of
Art. The Museum presented a program before
the tea was served. Carol Michelsen was in
charge of this affair.
We were also very much honored to be pick-
