We hereby pledge our loyalty to the former students and teachers of McKinley

Scholarship, leadership, character and
service are the four cardinal principles of
the Socratecian Chapter of the National
Honor Society, which was organized in
1937 at McKinley Senior High School.
High scholarship is the first requirement
for admission into this Honor Society, as
only those in the upper fourth of their
class are eligible. Leadership, to lead
others intelligently and thoughtfully and
service to others are also necessary re-
quirements, but these would not be com-
plete without good character, All four
principles are considered equally impor-
tant for a rounded personality which ex-
emplihes the best pupils.
The flaming torch is the emblem of the
Honor Society 'lto bear forward the
searching light of truth, to lead that oth-
ers may follow, to keep burning' in our
school a high ambition or the enduring
values of life and to serve."
Five percent of the class is chosen in
1lA, tive more when the class is in 12B,
and five more in IZA, so that fifteen per-
cent of the graduating seniors are mem-

The members of the fall semester Activity
Council under the guidance of its officers and
several members of the faculty promoted sev-
eral worthwhile projects. Leo Cabalka, Pres-
identg Edwin Griffith, Vice President, Fred
Bissell, Secretary, and Frances Marshall, As-
sistant Secretary, took the initiative in plan-
ning McKinley's first Homecoming. The

A program planned by the Council launch-
ed a large sale of Activity Tickets, The
"Cranberry Jam", our fall mixer, was fash-
ioned after a Barn Dance and was decorated
with shocks of corn, pumpkins, and strings
At the Council's proposal a list of former
McKinley students and teachers who are now
in the service of the United States was com-
piled and an honor role made, Advice was
given to Williamsburg High School as to how
to organize and direct an activity council.
A suggestion was made that there should

Hampton, Vice President, Frances Kaserovs-
ky, Secretary, and Bob Lester, Treasurer,
the spring Council began its work. First of
these was the campaign for the collection of
one hundred good books for men in the armed
forces of the United States. The spring mix-
er, a Gay Nineties affair, was both socially
and financially successful. All attending were
asked to keep the spirit of the settings by
dressing appropriately. An unusual feature
of this mixer was the fact that the 9A stu-
dents Were invited to attend.

The opcretta t'Rio Rico" was well-liked by
all who attended the performances on the
nights of November 20, and 21 under the
able direction of Miss Maurine Hamblin and
Mr. Paul Anthony. The leads fitted their
parts well and the chorus was behind them
all the way.
This story was based upon a Gold Recov-
ery Expedition which was backed by Lewis
Morgan, a wealthy financier, in order to pro-
vide a diversion for his daughter, jane. Pro-
fessor Molecule brought along his latest in-
vention, a device for detecting buried gold,
with which they started in search of gold
buried by Black Spider and his mutineers.
Instead of finding the treasure, they found
the sleeping mutineers themselves! It ap-
peared that, having drunk deeply from a
spring on the island, they had been in a
trance for centuries. Molecule revived them
with his Magic Nerve Pills, and they made
him king of Cocos Isle. All went well until
the pirates missed their treasure and threat-
ened to make the gold hunters walk the

After giving up all hope, the f'Southern

the pirates removed their disguises and turn-
ed out to be friends from Brighton College
who had been brought to the island by Lewis
Morgan in order to provide excitement.
Lewis Morgan was played by Bill Minshall.
Marilyn Parks took the part of his debutante
daughter. Frances Kacerovsky was Aunt Jul-

Arda Mae Cox, Clara. Nan, another co-ed

'fwas a long time ago that this tale took
place. A LADD, DAVID'S SON, one night
left his AKERS in his little FORD to go to
the ARENAS to see a new SCHOLL. On
the way he had some 'ARD luck. A bull
crossed the road and made him go into the
ditch. He took a RISK when it started to
CHASE him, but it fell into the ditch on its
BENA and was knocked out. But the LADD
was STUCK-er in the mud. Then BAKER
BROWN came along and made a DEAL with
him to help him out with his ALEX. So they
both took off their COATES and laid them
on DE MOSS so they wouldn't get dirty.
OWEN to his help, he got to town in AM-
PEY time. Before it started, he went and
had a ham-BERGER with some WOCES-
TER sauce, and some FRENCH FRIES, be-
cause he was hungry. It was the BESTA
VOGEL picture he had ever seen, although
he only had a BOXA to sit on, He arrived
