National Honor Society As the name implies, the National Honor Society is an organization of nation-wide scope and is the only society whose purpose is honoring outstanding high school students. Members are chosen on the basis of scholarship, character, leadership, and ser- vice. The Assembly honoring the newly chosen National Honor Society members was held March 16, this year with Gabe Sellers officiating. Devotionals were led by Geraldine Salero and Richard Keith, a mem- ber of the Society from the class of 1938, played a piano solo, after which Mr. Bergman gave a short address on "The Nature of the National Society" and introduced the twenty-eight new members. Mary Margaret Arnold gave a very impressive response from the members of the society. The guest speaker was Reverend J. R. Burns, of Hays, Kansas. Initiation services for the newly elected members of the National Honor Society were held Monday, March 20, in our own "banquet hall" where a de- licious dinner was served by the members of the 18 RUTH YAEGEf-"She's as pretty as a picture."

19 Mentor and Blue M Staff This ycar's journalism class under Paul Owen "hit a new high" by being the largest class in the history of M. H. S. with a record of twenty-one members. The purpose of this class is to edit the weekly school paper, the "Mentor," and the year book, the "Blue M." To their credit, the staff made several changes in the Mentor: "Poems 'N Things," to pro- mote interest in creative writing of our students: "The Clothes Line" with sub-heads of Esquire and Madumoisellcg "In the Mentor," index box, mention- ing the high points in each issue, and "As I See It," editorial column on the front page with remarks on timely events, were now attractions. The Student Forum, although not new, was quite well responded to, and several columns were dressed up with new heads, such as "Mentor Mud" in place of 'tGAB," and "Over the Back Fence" instead of "In Other Schools." The Mentor was enlarged to a six page paper the first semester, and the heads were changed from the conventional news type to the more modern feature type, and cuts were more frequently shown in the paper due to the purchase of the Redimat. This equipment made it possible for original art work to be reproduced for the paper. During the year's work, the staff published a 10 page anniversary issue, which high lighted the his- tory of our institution and its expansion throughout 25 years, and an 8 page edition for the National Education Association week, to which the faculty contributed During the course of the year, the staff made two trips, one to Topeka, and one to Kansas City. The class was taken to Topeka in the school bus. They spent the morning in the Capper Publications. The stall' and sponsor met Senator Capper who kindly posed with the group for a picture which appeared in the Topeka Daily Capital. The afternoon was spent in visiting the Topeka Daily Journal and the State Printer. In Kansas City, the cass was taken through the Kansas City Star Plant, the Grimes-Joyce Printing Company, the Nelson Art Gallery, and other points of interest. The staff is as follows: The Editorial Stafi'-Edi- tor-in-chief, Merrill Petersong News Editors, Bar- bara Bower and Barbara Bouck, Editorial Editors, Ruth Kretzmeier and Margaret Mack, Feature Edi- tors, Mary Margaret Arnold and Faye Clapp, Sports Editors, Bob Gahagen and Bill Hines, Ex- change Editors, Ba1'bara Bouck and Barbara Bower. The Business Staff: Business Manager, Betty Nie- mollerg Advertising Manager, Shirley Marlow: As- sistant Advertising Manager, Helen Miller, Circu- lation Manager, David Gates. Departmental and Reportorial Staff: Martha Baird, Clara Lou Davis, Marjorie Goldstein, Hall Milliard, Marian Penley, Wilma Jean Shull, Dorothy May Summers, and Sara Winkler, Faculty Advisor, Paul C. Owen, and Printer, F1'ed Ernst. Included in the two-fold purpose of the journalism class was, of course, the publishing of the yearbook, "The Blue M." The most outstanding feature of the annual this year was in the contest and election of the Blue M Beauty Queen. Dorothy Lancaster, our colorful sophomore, now bears the title of "Blue M Beauty Queen. The seventeen candidates were Jo- anne Aubel, Thelma Bouck, Faye Clapp, Marion Jo Drown, Iva Fenton, Harriet Givens, Virginia How- enstine, Jeanne Jaccard, Alice King, Betty Jean King, Ruth Kretznieier, June Limbocker, Dorothy Ratliff, Mary Schweitzer, Charlene Spelman, Le- nore Tucker. The theme, the first to be used since the reduction of the annual to magazine size, follows the "Marco of the annual from magazine size, of this year's of Time" throughout the book, depicting Father Time in various poses as division page illustrations. The appropriateness of this theme is the fact that this is the twenty-fifth anniversary of the graduates of the first class, the book being dedicated to Earl Darby, who was a member of the first class to enter the present building, and has been an instructor in the school since 1923.
