Most of the home rooms have elected chairmen to take charge of these meetings, and we are all trying to make these programs successful.
Thus far we have discussed the following: The Automobile as an Asset, Modern Highways, Understanding the Mechanism, and Responsibility, Maintenance and Care of Automobiles.

We are very fortunate this year to have such a veriety of new books in our school library. Our library is expanding every year, and at the present time it is one of the largest high-school libraries in the state.
During November we had our annual Book Week, and many new and interesting books were on display. One feature of this year's Book Week was the display of letters and autographed books sent to Miss Clark by well-known writers. Letters were received from Wilson MacDonald, Gladys Carroll, William Lyon Phelps, Jeanette Eaton, Bachel Field, and Bobert P. Tristam Coffin. Autographed books were received from Christopher Morley, Dorothy Lathrop, Eric P. Kelly, and Odell Shepard.
Prizes for the Book Week Poster Contest went to Thomas Windsor, who received first prize, and Betty Shelley, second. Anna Tierney and Alex Sabo received honorable mention.
Miss Clark, Miss Hutchinson, and Miss Farr deserve much praise for making Book Week such a success.

Junior Ring Committee
The juniors have already selected their class rings. Those in charge were Leo Ciszek, Betty Dunn, Laurena Kimberly, Margaret O’Reilly, Louise Sala, and Elizabeth Toth.
Except for Bernie McLaughlin, Lyman Hall’s cheering squad is new this year. Elizabeth Toth, Helen Harkawick, and Henry Jasiewicki are the others in the group. They are all doing good work and want everyone’s cooperation.
In the “gym” on October 16, a benefit dance was held for Ernest LaCroix, who was injured in an alumni football game. The “gym” was decorated in the school colors, black and orange, and music was furnished by the Rhythm Ramblers’ Orchestra. The patronesses were Mrs. Howard Nettleton, Mrs. Langdon D. Fernald, Miss Ruth Whittaker, and Miss Ellen Disken.

The Sophomore-Freshman Hallowe4en Party
The Hallowe’en Party given to the freshmen by the sophomores on Thursday, October 29, was pronounced a great success by all attending. It was well planned, and cooperation was shown by everyone.
The program opened with the Sophomore Grand March. Andrew Sari, the Master of Ceremonies, led the march with James Ferriere, Edward Ferriere, and Marion O’Connell, the class officers. Ethel Haczku's costume was judged the prettiest, and Arthur Kozak’s, the funniest. Next came the Freshman Grand March, and Thelma Jeffords’ costume was judged the prettiest, and Charles Stearns’, the most comical. Miss Quint and Miss Hutchinson were the best couple. Mrs. Earley, Miss Mitchell, and Airs. Botsford, the judges, had a difficult task selecting the winners, so many and varied were the costumes.
Fabian’s Orchestra furnished the music for the dancing. At this time the different rooms were opened the game room, the fortune-telling room, the cemetery, and the bogey den. These were enjoyed by many. Refreshments were then served, and dancing continued until the party ended at eleven o’clock.
Much credit is due the various committees for their work in the management of the party. All in all, the party may be considered one of the most successful Hallowe’en parties given in our school.

Student Council Dance
’Twas the night before Thanksgiving, and in the gymnasium the first of a proposed series of dances was given by the Student Council for members of the student body. Novelty dances were a feature, with music by Sebastian’s five-piece orchestra. The low price, fifteen cents for stags and twenty-five cents for couples, attracted many pupils.
So come to the next dance and enjoy these informal, social affairs with your friends.

In the poster contest sponsored by the Junior Play Publicity Committee, Polly Biggins received first prize, Jane Bassett second, and Frieda Buza third. Honorable mention was received by Frances and Kathryn McLaughlin and Kenneth Wright.

The Athletic Association
The Athletic Association has started its membership drive for the present year. During the past two years memberships have decreased, but this year we hope for better success in gaining new members.
Let us all join this money-saving association. We can save twenty cents on every basketball game, and as there will be eleven home games in basketball this year, we can save two dollars and twenty cents if we belong to the association. Join now and keep our teams on the proper athletic standard.
