Monday afternoon, January 11, a basketball game between the Sophomores and Seniors was played on the High School grounds. At, the close of t.he game the teams were tied, score H to 8. The Sophs resurrected an old, half-forgotten rule and because of this rub- plus a faulty decision, two points extra wort- allowed them, seen ring vie.- tory by a wore of IO to 8. A debate between the Freshman- Sophomore and Junior-Senior divisions of the classes in argumentation will bo held at the High School next Thursday, January 21. Question: "Resolved, That, the capitol of California should be removed from Sacramento to Berkeley." A well contested debate is expected as each division declares it/ will win and in working hard to secure the victory. A series of basketball games for tho championship of the High School will be played in the near future, before the opening of the baseball season. A championship banner will be presented to the class winning tho most victories. At present it seems that the championship lies between tho Hophornoro and Senior teams.

A new fad IUIH taken possession of e boys and is rapidly becoming a cra/r 1 . If a student wishes lo be regarded a live member of the school, he must, take up this fad. The following are Ihe operations he must K» through in taking il up. Kadi day upon arriving at school, he must trade one of his soi-ks with another student. (In Ihe Mr-it place it should be dearly understood that he is to wear only the ''sporliesl "' socks he possesses. Red, green or blue preferred.) After changing socks it is necessary thai he turn up his trousers u peg in order to properly display Ihe color values of his hosiery. Next he must go to another student of his class and change coals with him. If he wishes to lie especially ''classy,' 1 he may go diywn town to a milliner's shop and buy an untrim- uieil hat for 10 cents (red color preferred). This will add greatly, in fact it will be (he finishing touch of color, to his appearance. Then, anil only then, may he consider himself a progressive member of the High School, although he may look somewhat like this: RED The shows parts. lielllellll>i-r the ileli.'iti-. i '.I -. a .
