Two business men's classes are to be formed Immediately by Physical Di- reckr Lottie in the Covina Christian Culture and Athletic club. This branch is to be one of the features of HIP season work. Mr. Logue says thai all the training will be done in private, and that spectators will not be admitted excepting on exhibition nights. The club has received a new spring-board this week which is being set in place, also an adjustable horizontal bar and new adjustable flying rings, covered with heavy leather. The shower baths have been installed, and are a welcome addition after the training of the evening is over. Edward Sprotte is acting in the capacity of assistant physical instructor. Mr. Sprotte has had a good deal of experience in physical work in Y. M. C. A. buildings in the east. The board of directors is making arrangements for the purchase of a' wooden gymnasium horse for (raining purposes and also paraphernalia which the club Is in need of. It is the Intention of Physical Director TjDgue to give an exhibition within a few weeks, after his classes have been thoroughly segregated, when the best teams will perform work on the apparatus in the gymnasium. No admission will be charged, and it is thought that, a collation served after j the events are over will be a good fea- Iture to Introduce. The physical director has gotten out the following program of classes, which is subject to change: COVINA CHRISTIAN CULTURE AND ATHLETIC CLUB GYMNASIUM CLASSES SCHEDULE. Juniors—Those from 11 to 1C years of age. MONDAYS and THURSDAYS. 4 to 5 o'clock p. m. Seniors— TUESDAYS and FRIDAYS. 8 to 9 o'clock p. m.

Our High School band will give an o'pen air concert on Citrus avenue this afternoon. Come and hear the music. It. will bo good and there will be plenty of it. Covina needs a park and our band needs a band stand. If I he citi/ens-of Covina will furnish the; park and put a band stand In the center of it, the High School will furnish the music for weekly concerts. There is much gloom among the members of the boys' basketball team in regard to the recent victory of the girls' team over the strong San Fernando High school five. The boys' team has been defeated In every game played this year, and when the girls organized, the boys predicted defeat from the very start. But last Saturday the girls won an easy victory over San Fernando, defeating 'them by a score of 35 to 13. Hence the collection of gloom. The Grammar school eleven, reinforced by several of our best. High school players, met the High school In a desperate struggle on the gridiron Monday afternoon. It Is with much sorrow that 1 record the fact that the game ended with a score, of 20 to 5 in favor of the "babies." The Grammar school (or, more properly speaking, the High school players on the Grammar school side), "waltzed merrily through our line, leaving us unable to put up any substantial opposition. Such is Fate! But cheer up! It won't occur again. Our next debate, for the second series, will be with Pasadena High, Covina to submit the question and name the place. The debate will take place on or before January 215, JU09. More particulars later. The Christmas vacation commenced yesterday. School reopens January 4, thus allowing the students sufficient time to recuperate from the effects of Christmas festivities and New Year resolutions. ARTHUR BIXBY. ' MONEY FOB HIGH SCHOOL.
