School. From the Boys' Glee Club an octette was chosen consisting of Monroe Bell
and Walter Aasheim, first tenorsg Sidney Anderson and Russell Stearns, second
tenors, Ross Roe and Harris Jacobson, baritones, and Roxy Falde and Laurel Gray,
basses. The first appearance of this octette was at the annual Christmas program.

W' Discovering from a student vote lost fall that most of the students
'27 would like to have a school annual, and many would be willing to
' help in its production, Canton High students decided to put out the
school's first annual in 20 years. To aid in the drive for annual
soles, a prize of a free annual was awarded to the student whose
name was drawn in assembly. Bernice Homandberg held the lucky
number and was refunded by means of 250 pennies. Lorraine Mar-
ken, senior pictured at right, was chosen by those who bought
annuals to be the Backtrackin' Princess of l946. Lorraine was art
editor of "Bocktrackin," a member of Scitamard, vocal music groups,
forensics, student council, and was also chosen as the year's DAR
