School 's Social Activities
The members of the Junior Sorelles have
worked with a fine spirit of cooperation this year.
At the first meeting we were initiated by the
Senior Sorelles and then we elected officers. The
meetings for the rest of the year were held in the
homes of members. W

Down on her knees begging for dues was our Treas-
urer, Nancy Santchi. Frantically. Jeannine Moree,
Inter-Club Council representative tried to tell us
about the Inter-Club Council pot-luck supper.
Rather than entertaining ourselves with a
party at Christmas, we decided to entertain a
group of orphans at the Miami Children's Home
on River Road, Maumee. Ohio. We played various
games and sang Christmas Carols. Then after dis-
tributing the gifts, we served refresliments. Con-
nie Cromwell was chairman of this party. She was
assisted by Pauline County. Myrle Romanoff. Bar-
bara Roth, Kathleen Casey. and Marilyn Ross.

Sorelles Are Symbolic Of The
If you had been walking down some quiet
street in the DeVilbiss High School district on a
Tuesday evening you might have smiled at the
similarity of its lovely homes. Most of tl1e houses
along the street had tl1e usual number of lights
burning, and father could be seen reading the
newspaper in his favorite chair while mother in-
dustriously knitted and brother or sister sat at the
desk doing homework. Suddenly you came upon a
house with quite a different aspect. This one was
ablaze with lights. Screams and war-whoops burst
through the once quiet and solemn streets. You
rushed to a window of the house to see if there
were anything you could do, for surely there must
be a mass execution or a meeting of men from
Mars. But as you gazed upon this room of utter
confusion you sighed with relief. lt was only a
meeting of the Senior Sorelles.
The president, Ruth Crockett, and vice-pres-
ident. .lean Parkes, helplessly sat on top of the
piano trying in vain to hear Lorene Barnes who
was shouting the minutes of the last meeting from
across the room. But wait. There was a lovely
lass trying to beat her brains out against the wall
and muttering something about being '6five-in-the-
hole." Of course, that was Jackie Schouten, the
Sorrelle treasurer. Susie Lattin the sergeant-ab
arms tried to quiet a group of girls who were still
talking about the fun they had on the Sorelle hay-
ride last December. It looked as if Susie was talk-
ing more than the rest of them. That girl in the
corner was Nancy Hill, the chaplain, praying to be
forgiven for ever joining the group.
Someone made a suggestion that the group
have a rummage sale and at the same time a
plan for a box supper for the parents was approv-
ed. Business now began to win over the clamor
and the president quickly took advantage of it in
order to put forth the question of the location for
a cottage next summer. Immediately everyone
returned to her conversation and soon someone re-
marked that the meetings closely resembled the
demonstration which had been given to show how
not to conduct a meeting.
All of a sudden quietness prevailed. It was
the lull before the storm. The advisers, Mrs. Per-
kins and Miss Griffin, had announced that the re-
freshments were ready and then deftly dodged out
of the way of the stampeding herd.
So went the meeting of the Senior Sorelles.

Spanish Club Studies The Americas
One of the largest and liveliest clubs in De-
Vilbiss was organized this year under the name of
uLa Alianza Latino-Americanaf, For the first
time in the school's history, a Spanish club hacame
an affiliate of the International Student Pan Amer-
ican League. Chartered by the International
League, we have as our creed, c'Liberty-Peace!
.lustice - Law - Friendship - Brotherhood -
Government - Family - Fatherland - God."
We aim to help create a better understanding be-
tween the young people of the Americas. As an
affiliate, the HAlianzo" took part in various ac-
tivities including foreign correspondence and the
study of countries and their heroes.
The club decorated the small cafeteria at
Christmas time. Hard work and co-operation on
this project produced a truly Spanish atmosphere,
and won for us first place in the decoration con-
test. lnstead of the traditional 'Gnacimientov we
painted a large picture of the holy family on the
window. Nine colorful and intricate pinatas hung
from the ceiling: doves and poinsettias ltypical
Spanish symbolsl brightened up the blackboard.
Co-chairmen of the decorating committee were
Mary Lou David and .Joyce Rehn.
Barbara Price and Jacquelyn McLain were
in charge of programs. Helping them were Gloria
Brown and Eleanor Trudel.
Two of our members, Barbara Price and Mar-
garet Thyen, gave very interesting accounts of their
travels through Mexico last summer.
Pan American Day is an annual celebration
to which the whole Spanish department looks
forward. Two very able members, Betty Houston
and Virginia Reese were in charge of the program
this year. Singing, dancing and speeches marked
the occasion. Mr. Russell Brown, Dean of Boys
and former head of the Spanish department, ad-
dressed the group.
The club was governed by three advisers:
Miss Marian Smith, Miss Ursula Schmit, and Mrs.
Dorothy Mills: and five officers-.June Phillips,
Chairman: George Leighton, Vice-Chairman: Bar-
bara Price, Corresponding Secretary: .lane Curtis,
Recording Secretary: and Jane Starkey, Treasurer.
We believe that for a young club, the uAlian-
za" accomplished many things and has a bright
