It was fllled with a noisy, laughing crowd and as they passed the roadster a jeering laugh shrilled out. Someone cried raucously, "Iiook at the necking party!" Almost in the same instant the car was gone but the spell of the night had been broken. Janet moved away. She said, "It's been ages since I've seen you, Jeff. What have you been doing?" "Oh, the usual things. Fellow Jn the office took me home with him last week-end. He's got a little place out ahout 20 miles, drives in every day. Say—it's great, too!

Mayor Knowlton Refuses Evangelist's Demand That They Be Closed LITTLE ROCK>-Mayor Knowlton announced, Saturday that he had refused to comply with a demand by religious leaders that he take action to stop Sunday motion picture shows. The demand for closing of the picture houses was made by the Rev. M. F. Ham, evangelist, and followed Mayor Knowlton's compliance, with a demand that the showing of "Ingngi" at the Arkansas theater be stopped. The Rev. Arden P. Blaylock, pastor of the First Baptist church, supported the evangelist in his demands. "As far as this administration is concerned, the Sunday picture show question is a closed issue," the mayor told the spokesmen for the group, who made the demand over the telephone. The mayor was informed that the Rev. Mr. Blaylock was the principal opponent of Sunday shows. "My refusal to lake action against the Sunday shows is brtsed upon the belief that most of the people do not object, and to go against the wishes of the majority of our citizens would be carrying things a bit too far," the mayor said. "I am satisfied that, if the Sunday shows should be closed, the people would immediately call for an election and overwhelmingly defeat the movement to close them. Frankly, I do not think the reaction toward those bringing a.bout the closing of the shows would be favorable/' Battlefield Induction Is Held by Honor Society Ten Mope Senior* Admit* ted to the National iSocicty "No honor conferred by thes school excels that represented by tbe National Honor Society," said Mr. Mil. burn speaking at the chapel services where was held tho annual Honor Society induction. He continved: "Other honors at the disposal'of the school are only partial In the sense that they recognized specialized talent, ability or skill. But this soflty looks at education as a total product measured by the tow dimensions of life. In your election to this society the faculty is honoring you for the attainments 'already made and for the promise of continued excellence in the ideals of our school." Luther Hollnmon, president of the Hope" chapter, administered the oath to ten new members from the senior clofe: Ellen Lou Bowden, Helen King Cannon, Marjorie .Higgason. Ruby Owen, Harriet Pritch.nrd. Carl Schooler, Carl Greene, Marilyn Ward. Robert Porter and Lois Dodson; and to two members from the junior class, Mary Delia Carrigan and Clyde Browning.

Miss Jennie Beard returned home was read to the student body by> the secretary, Mozelle :Lewjs. The purposes of the society were given by .Lane Taylor, the vice president. WTt- lis G Smith gave a talk on "The Symbolism of the Emblem," which is a flaming torch mounted on a key. stone with the letters S, L, C, and S at the bottom. These letters represent the cardinal virtues or factors, whicli are Leadership. Scholarship, Character and Service and one must have these . qualifications before he may become a member of this much coveted organization. Then came the forming, of the Keystone by the newly elected members and the administering of the oath, which was, "I pledge myself to uphold the high purposes.01 this society to which I haye been elected, striving in everyway, by word and deed, to make its ideals the ideals of my school." Victor Cobb read the constitution and the new members signed it. At the conclusion of hjs message he read the names of those elected in years gone by and those! whose names were read and who were present were asked to stand. Bqrtha McRae, 1931; Gladys Watson, 19.31; Vcra Van Sickle, 1932; and Minneola Owens, 1932, were present. In the audience were Judge and Mrs. Higgason, Mrs. Jim Bowden, Miss Battle Aimc Fcild and;her guest. Miss Macldox, Mrs. Owen and Mrs. Steve Carrigan.

"There's something almost like magic about them. Look—there are some more!" "You wouldn't think they were so wonderful it you could see one of them in daylight." "No, I suppose not." There was a pause and tben Janet said, "I think you're right about It, Jeff. A home in tbe country— like you described—would be wonderful. I think I'd like it better than Mrs. Curtis' big house.

Mr. John Wallace Is a Flagpole Climber Gratitude is due to Mr. Miller who found the rope for the flag, to Mr. Durham who high-pressured the flag movement, and to John Wallace who gracefully placed it in position. Mr. Durham observed young Mr. Wallace's interest and intellectual curiosity trying to decide if he really is the missing link or if he only climbed flagpoles like one. This is John's only symptom, but he gave a very convincing performance. Mr. Durham murmured rather wistfully, "If only there had been a cocoanut on the top of the ilag pole, I could have been certain." April Downpour Sure Sign Spring Is Here April showers are here! The latter part of last week everyone thought that spring was here for certain. The girls and boys came to school in the morning looking "springified." Puff sleeves attached to silk and voile dresses, white shoes, golf knickers could be seen flying and jumping over the campus in the morning and during the noon hour; but in the afternoon it , looked quite different. The weather- i man had changed his clothes from the blue skies and bright sunshine Grammar Contest Is New English Feature Inter-Class grammar contests are part of the activities for the Good English Project. So far the undefeated team is the lOB's, whose members are Victor Keith. Jean Robertson. Hope Blevins and Willie Belle Cole. On Thursday four from the 9A English class: Catherine Lane, Wanda Roberts, Evelyn Simpson and Opal McCormick won by 0112 point from Miss Hudson's 8A class in a contest on the parts of a simple sentence. The 8A's were Enola Alexander, Katherin May Simms, Margaret Bacon, and Ess White Jr. Miss Cannon's two excellent 9B students, Lenora Roulon and Horace Jewell defeated a 9A team of four. The Seniors, off form, on account of their disappointment about Senior day, suffered defeat at the hands of the 10B team, but threaten to resume hostilities. Nina Thompson, 12A, made the only perfect score on either side. The same 10B team defeated the UA's on Thursday and again on Friday. Rev. W. R.
