The Crescent Society
For twenty-three years, the Crescent Society of the St. Joseph High School
has marked with a certain distinction, each person of talent and ability. It has
been the one society to bind the whole high school together and through which
all have worked in one body. The constitution very concisely and clearly writ-
ten, was drawn up by a most Worthy committee in 1891, when the idea of such
a society was first conceived.
The ideal aim of the institution is to develop dramatic, literary, and musical
talent. We have been very fortunate to have secured splendid instructors in
English who have shown us the dramatic and literary sides, and our critics
of music have been especially good.
The spirit of the Crescent Society is one of constant enthusiasm, which
gives to each member a sense of his own importance and ability in an institution
Where the achievements of all are brought forth by united support and effort.
Loyalty and enthusiasm have been the watchwords during the past year, and
the result has shown forth in some of the best programs ever given. Several
small plays have been presented this year under the direction of Miss Kelble,
who deserves especial mention on account of her sincere endeavor and untirinff
effort to make this a brilliant year.
We hope, in the future years, that the Crescent records may remain spot-
less, and that each one will put forth his most noble effort to make this the
best literary society in the state of Michigan.

The Crescent Banquet
On March 27, the day on which school closed for spring vacation, occurred
the annual Crescent banquet, the most pleasurably anticipated event of the school
year. Four tables for the four classes were laid in Burkhard's Hall, each of
the classes striving to surpass the others in tastefulness of decoration.
The Senior table occupied the center of the room and was artistically ar-
ranged, the class colors of red and white and green foliage being used. A large
wicker basket filled with maidenhair fern, red carnations, and white tulips, formed
a centerpiece over which hung a large light encased in red, on which was shown
the class numerals. Down the center were pots of white hvacinths and drop
lights shaded in red and extending from the ceiling by ropes of fern, illuminated

golden tulips and daffodils. in pots wound with blue. and streamers of the colors
were extended from the corners to the drop-lights at either end. :X centerpiece

The Sophomore table in blue and white was beautiful with violets and white
tulips. A rope of blue and white ran from the corners of the table to the drop-
lights which were shaded with blue and white shades. XYhite tulips and hya-
cinths and violets were placed down the center of the long table, and favors of
tulips were given.

idea in their colors of purple and gold. A large purple basket filled with yellow
daffodils ran to the corners of the table. The lights were shaded in the colors
