As apunishmentfor this her mother reduced her to the age of sixteen and made her dress as a child., She had to remain this way until her three older sisters were married. Shortly after her punishment began, she met Ferenz Horkoy, the man with whom she had danced at the ball. Horkoy disguised himself as her cousin and promised to help her get her sisters married. Theyfinally succeeded in getting Katinka, the eldest sister, married to Colonel Radinany, the uncle of a stupid young baron in love with Katinka. lnthe Second Act, Mitzi and Horkoy were successfulin getting the second sister, Sari married to a handsome self-sufficient man of thirty or so, by the name of Michael Sandorffy. In the Third Act Ella, the third sister, married Baron Gida. This released Mitzi from her punishment, and so she married Ferenz Horkoy.

Through the organization of the Student Council, the student body achieves a sense of living in a democracy. The purposes of the organization are: to aid in the internal administration of the school, to unify student organizations, to promote student activities, to promote high scholarship, to foster sentiments for law, order, and school spirit, and to promote a spirit of cooperation among the students. The council is composed of elected representatives from the three classes, clubs, depart- ments, and afaculty member selected by the council. The group participates actively in district, state, and national organizations. Several members attend the Leadership Training Conference at West Virginia University each spring. The council was represented at the State Convention at Jackson's Mill by Dixie Stout, Kay Simpson, and Beverly Harris. Some of the projects and activities directed by the council are: publishing student' handbooks, conducting class elections, presenting a radio program of school news twice weekly, sponsoring Courtesy Week, promoting a Safety Drive, and preparing a program for ninth grade pupils who will enter Elkins High School the following year. The officers are: President ..... . . . William Isner Vice President . . . . Lynn Cromwell Secretary .... . . . Kay Simpson Treasurer . . . . . Fred Parmesano Sponsor . . . . .Miss Mary E.

D vfftg 1 1 TRADE AND INDUSTRIAL EDUCATION "He that hath a trade hath an estate." For a number of years the Elkins High School, through the Trade and Industrial Department, has given students who expect to enter industrial employment an opportunity to secure good pre-employment training in wood working and metal working. Experience shows that familiarity with the use of tools, materials and manufacturing processes, and related subjects enchances the student's chance of success in his work. These factors are a part of the training program. Learn by doing is a principle of the department. Anyone who works should have vocational training, and now in this day of automation, it is even more imperative that students know how to meet the demands that will be made on them in the future. Vocational and industrial training will help prepare the future citizens of America to meet this de- mand, and the Trade and Industrial Department of Elkins High School is ready to help the student to prepare for the future.

Like plants that have be come root-bound in a pot, we, too, must be transplanted into aplace of greater opportunity for development and expansion because itis anatural step if we are to attain maturity. Even so, like the tender young plant newly re-set, we wilt tempo rarily from the change. We weep! These were the greenyears, the carefree hours splashed with laughter, close friendships, day dreaming, first loves and what we often regarded as unbearable hardships. How ever, these will pale before the demands of the future,-"the heartache, and the thousand natural shocks that flesh is heir to-." Nothing shall be the same again. We leave to Elkins High School our good accomplish ments that may serve to forward her endeavor. We charge our successors with the duty to maintaining equal respect for all, a sincerety of purpose, and the value ofa genuine smile. We hope for the capacity to accept hard lessons and exacting instructions in whatever walk of life we may enter This will measure our success. "You say that your school days are over? Why, Lad! they have only just begung Go forth and count the sands of the strand, Or look on the blazing sun. When its last red ray shall tremble At Father Time's caress, The Master, still, will be keeping school, 'Twill be only the first recess. When the earth is worn to its axis, And when all the seven seas Are numbered among the things that were: You are still in your A, B, C'S.
