I4 SHERMAN ANNUAL, JUNE, 1922 a dramatic committee, which should have at every meeting some- thing entertaining to present to the class. Every week at an hour appointed by the teacher, the class meet- ing is held in the room. At this meeting, every one is expected to give some interesting report or current event. If some member does 11ot give a report of any kind, he must hand in a written com- position. After tl1e reports are given, all the business of the class is dis- eussed. lt there is still enough time, the dramatic committee is al- lowed to present their program. Thus the meetings are always en- joyable as well as beneficial. Every two weeks a mayors' convention is held. The president of the student body, who is elected from the eighth grade, presides at this convention. The mayor of each grade from four li to eighth A grades must be present, or they may send a representative. The vice-president and secretary of the Student liody also attends. The meeting of all the mayors is held in order to give the mayors a chalice to report the work oi' their 1'oon1. Matters concerning school business in general, are also discussed. The result of the co-operation between the faculty and the stu- dents has been that the latter have established better habits of self- eontrol, and developed more self reliance. lt has taught them to speak in public, as well as to work in co-operation with each other. We feel that the t'o-operalive Civic League of this school has been a great success. We hope the students will carry the lessons they have learned through high school and will not forget them in later life. By Fay M. Edman, BA2 and King Telleson, 8A1 I J J5 Banking Every school in San Diego has a banking system. Sherman is no exception. This banking system teaches the children to save their pennies, instead of spending them for candy, gum, Eskimo pies, nickel shows, etc. Miss Shaw, the Vice principal, has charge of all the money de- posited in Sherman School bank. She carries this banking on in a very business like manner. All children who deposit money in the school' bank are given a small red book for school banking only. After the money has bee11 taken from the school bank, and de- posited in the city banks, each depositor receives a small bank book from the city bank. During the year. Miss Minor's class has deposited the largest amount of money. The class has deposited two hundred seventy eight. dollars. ' Miss Collier's class comes second with a total of two hundred seventy five dollars. There are three rooms having o11e hundred per cent banking.

M - I wig - 534, k SHERMAN ANNUAL, JUNE, I-922 I3 A Disappointment It was near midnight when two small germs crept out of their hiding place, i11 a can of salmon left uncovered in the pantry. The first one said, f'This family is the most ignorant family I ever met in all the three thousand years of my life. Wliy, they haven't been to a dentist since l have been here, and look at Eliza- beth's teethll' "Yes," answered the second germ, Hyou remember the teeth of that Indian chief whom we used to visit back in lOl? He had some excuse, though, because he had never heard of tooth paste. But Elizabeth sees it every day. l saw a whole pile of tooth brushes in the bathroom, too." Hltlr. Peck is the superintendent down at the shipyards and he has enough money to buy them some tooth-paste." "Shl sh I" cried the elder germ, 'iwvliat do we care? Their loss is our gain anyway. We'll feed well tonight," he added, 'fthe family had syrup and pancakes for breakfast and of course they didn 't brush their teeth I" They stole very softly through the kitchen and into the bedroom. "Lets go to Harold tonight," remarked the younger germ. As they went down Harold 's row of teeth the first germ cried, 'flsn't this strange! That cavity we fed on last night is all filledlt' "And Harold teeth are al! white and shining! Just as if he had brushed them!" . UL-et's go to Mary," saitl the first germ, 'she loves candy and I never heard of her brushing her teeth." But they found Mary 's teeth in the same condition as her brothers Then they inspected the teeth of every member of th family, from the father to little Jim the baby. Every cavity was filled and every tooth brushed. At last they turned and looked at each other. "l'd just like to catch whoever told these people about tooth pastel" cried the younger germ angrily. 'fThat wonldn 't help us any." answered the older germ. 'fCome on, I guess we will have to go." So they went sadly out of the win- dow to try to find another family as ignorant as this one had been, which they were now leaving.

T. A. Russell was principal. Each class i11 the school is organized, with a mayor, district at- torney, secretary and treasurer. The rest of the class is divided in five groups, rather committees.

Helen Mc Guire, 8A2 Luella Tomrell, 8A1 V99 ,bl V53 Why the Cock Crows at F our O'clock in the Morning "Grandfather," asked Dannie, as he sat on his grandfather's knee, before the great fireplace, "why does the rooster crow at four o'clock in the morning?" "Well," began Grandfather, "long ago there lived a certain tribe of fairies about six inches high. Every night they would go to the forest and dance in the moonlight. However, they had to be very careful. for if they danced too long. until the day dawned, they would become blind. But one particularly beautiful moonlight night, as a small band were dancing, they forgot to be careful, and the morning light stole in through the trees, half blinding many of them before they could hide beneath the leaves. "Now, they were in a very sad plight, for even a fairy 's power could not restore their sight, so they decided to go and see if their Queen could not find a safeguard against the danger of dancing too long. For the next night, they planned a great meeting of all the fairies, to talk over the matter. 'fThe next night, the Queen held court under a large oak in the forest. Several of the fairies had thought of plans, but none were quite suitable. "At last, the Queen herself said that she had an idea. She would go and ask Mr. Cockletoo fthe rooster at Mr. Brown's farm yardl to crow at four o'clock in the morning, just before daybreak, so that the fairies could go safely to their homes. HAH agreed that this was a very good plan. The Queen at once flew off to ask the rooster. "The rooster, when asked, agreed to crow at the proper time. 'tThe next two nights, the rooster crowed as he had been asked. The third night, however, he was so sleepy that he failed to awaken, and, of course, the fairies did not know how late it was getting. Suddenly, to their horror, the low-hanging moon disappeared be- hind the distant hills, and they saw daylight. They quickly covered their faces, but they were too late. Those who had been half blind before, now became totally blind, and the others half blind. "They went and told their Queen at once. She was very angry, and flew to see the rooster. "Mr. Cockletoo looked very sheepish when the Queen told him
