Twenty-two 4 'XL SOCRATECIAN Socrotecion 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 Twenty-four Honor Society 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- bers. The officers for the fall semester were: President, Charles Dozoisq Secretary, Paul Perdue: anl Treasurer, Maribel Pratt. The officers for the spring semester were: President, Dean Nemecek, Secretary, Rob- erta Owensg anl Treasurer, Margaret Hawkins. The 12A members are as follows: Dean Nemecek, Darlene Owen, Arda Mae Cox, Norma Sorensen, Harriet Dauchy, Leone Spryncl, Pauline Halverson, Emil Christle, Roberta Owens, Barbara Carrithers, and Margaret Hawkins. The 12B members are Frances Kaccr- ovsky. Ray Scholl, Ortha Berger, anrl Charles Briggs. Those chosen from the 11A class are Bill Trunccek, Frances Marshall, Leora Zahorik, and ,lim NVestCot.

Activity Council 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 Rally, held in the big gym, was a huge suc- cess. 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 of cranberries. 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 he art showcases on fourth floor for the use of Senior High art students whose work is not generally viewed in its place on third floor. With Benny Pinsky, Presidentg Bonnie 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. Twenty-five A CAPPELLA CHOIR Top Row fI.eft to Rightl-M. Switzer, R. Owens, M. L. Jesina. M. Pecliar, F.

Foster Twenty-six OPERETTA "RIO RICO" 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 plank. As King Molecule did everything possible to entertain the pirates until their yacht, the "Southern Cross!', returned, he buried trink. cts for the mutineers to dig up. Aunt Julia taught them ballet dancing and Clara brought their English up to the minute. As their last efforts, they put on a broadcast in order to summon aid. After giving up all hope, the f'Southern Cross" was sighted. The climax came when 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- ia, Fulton Ross, Professor Amos Molecule, Arda Mae Cox, Clara. Nan, another co-ed tplayed by Roberta Owensj sang a. duet with Bill Burton Uoe Arcej. Betty Sidwell made a hit as Pansy Borealis, the singing chef. The romantic lead opposite Marilyn Parks was Louis Cavros as Jack Davis. ,Tay Hesser was Tubby Tomkins. The Black Spider CDavid Fosterb was aid- ed by George Cavros as Dead Eye, Joe Schab- er as Spade Beard, and Tom Carrithers as Skittles. George Lenzen was the Ghost of Christopher Strutt. There were thirty-six gold hunters in the chorus. All departments of the school contributed to the success of the show.

'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 HOM-sey in the YARDfley the next morn- ing when the COX crowed.
