LE CERCLE FRANCAIS
T E Cerclc Fran ais, founded in 1927 at the request of fifty enthusiastic French students, aims to furnish an introduction to a deeper understanding of the character and achievements of France, as shown by its history, literature, art, institutions, and customs, and to offer an opportunity to use the language. The motto is “liberte, egalite, fra-ternite”; the flower is the fleur-de-lys. The colors are “bleu, blanc, et rouge.”
During the semester the society has dramatized plays in French, made comparisons of France and America, reviewed books, and studied biographies of French writers and painters.
Entrance requirements are: pupils must have at least one semester of French, they must have had an average of C or alx ve in
French, and have complied with the scholastic requirement of the code.
Picnic suppers and a theatre party formed an enjoyable part of the first semester's activities. There is always an annual banquet in May, at which special honor and diplomas are given to senior members.
The critics are Miss Gertrude James and Miss Cecelia Leven. The officers of the fall semester were: President, Grace Rubek: Vice-President, Lois MeBroom; Secretary, Miriam Rogers; Treasurer, Ruth Quaas: Pulse Reporter, Helen Young. Those of the spring semester are: President, Virginia Vane;
Vice-President, Patricia Burkhalter; Secretary, Margaret Speelman; Treasurer, Margaret Ganson: Reporter for School Paper,

BETTER GREGG ARTISTS
HpO establish a foundation for a better un-derstanding of the business profession is the purpose of the better Gregg Artists.
This society did not function during the fall semester but was reorganized in the spring semester. In order to have the constitution fit in well with the excular code, it was changed, thereby allowing those to join who had passing grades and who were taking advanced Shorthand and were interested in the commercial course. This will give the society a nucleus on which to continue from semester to semester.
The officers for the semester are: President, Marjorie Voigt: Vice-President, Anita Fuehr; Secretary and Treasurer, Helen Hardwick;
and the club's Pulse Reporter. Wilma Greene.
For programs, the B. G. A.’s have at each meeting listened to reports on women who have made a success in the business world, have had a few musical numbers and skits, which in order to emphasize the importance of dignity in an office, presented the particular point at hand in a ridiculous fashion. To vary the routine a visit was made to an office for one meeting, and several picnic suppers in connection with the regular meetings were enjoyed in the Martha Washington Room.
This organization is under the direction of the Misses Boyack, Chapman, and Chamber-lain.
