Proposed Series of Gymnastic nnd Athletic Contests. Director Loguo, of the C. C, C, and A. (J. is in receipt, of a letter from the A/.lisa AHilctic, Club, which rondo in Iho nature of u challenge. Tho proposition they put up to Iho club hen- is to arrange a Ho.rioti of gymnastic, and athletic oonloHt,-), to take, place alternately at Covinn and A/.usa. The events I hey propose number fwen- ly-Mcven in all, and in a general way met with the approval of the members hole. The program includes s f anding and running high and broad jumps, I wo and three broad jumps; slamling, running and hitch kicks; running high dive, I wel ve-poiiud shot put, chin and dip, parallel anil hor'r/.onlal bars, Hying rings, mill, work; last of all, a tug ol' war. Of course this is simply a provisory list and in all probability will be revised and extended when commit.! ces from i'lich club get logcther some time next week, to arrange I lie details of this exhibit ions. The A/.usa boys propose having the contests extend over several meetings. Probably two a month; one al Covinsi and one at A/.usa, running about live events an evening. A .small admission could be charged, and possibly medals would be awarded to first-place men. A cup or trophy of some kind presented to (he winuiiii; club would stimulate coin pet it Ion. Al.-io a pii'.e for the best all around alhb Ie v.-oitb! be an incentive for exeryone lo get in and try to do home! hi ug. The enter! ainmeii! s need not be con- lined lo athletics alone. Al the Covina end there is plenty ol' musical and dramatic tab-ill. With the assistance of all Ilie active members, and their friendi, a decidedly successful program could be produced, and a general interest aroused in the good work thai Hie club is accomplishing. i-mcli an event as the tug of war would give the boasted strong men of this town a chance to get out and show what they can do. '"o have this event close each evcuiii)' 's performance should furnish a lot of excitement and would no doubt prove a strong drawing card. After next week a lull account of tin- joint commit lee meeting \\iil lie gi\en. Then it will be up lo the people here to get in and cany the scheme i hroiigh successfully. The president of the governing board wishes to inform the friends of t!ie club that suitable books and maga/ines for the -reading room \\ill lie much appreciated.

We won the ill-bate by a score of :.':)( '2-'.', to 190 \-'.', and now, besides having Pasadena '« S'-alp hanging alongside Santa Ana's, we liav the greatest number of points up to date of any High School in the Debating ly-ague of Southern California, namely. )n7. Hy H o Vior-k on Iho ovr-i.'ing of tho debate, standing room was at a premium in the Woman's (.'bib House. At K:l."i tho Pasadena dob gation arrived, Si) in nitmbrr. and confident of victory. Amid yells and songs and tho waving of banners, they marched down HIP aisle, to their seats ami started to show us that wo wore not to bo compared with Miem in tho matter of yelling, but under Sam Allison, our capable and energetic yell loader, we convinced them that we know a thing or two about yeJling, and during tho rest of the evening Pasadena was out of the rare in yelling as well as debating. fi; a lull of the pandemonium, the timekeeper for Covina, Adah Wayc, came to the front of the stage and road the rules of debate. Then the first speaker on the affirmative, Otis Castle I of Pasadena High, opened the debate. (Castle's diction and argument were I good. The speech of Albino Power, | Covina's first speaker on the negative, impressed the audience. In argument and diction f:he surpassed either of the Pasadena speakers. Although this wsis her first debate, in speaking and rebuttal she excelled many more experienced debaters. Tho second speaker on the afHnnativo, Irene Howen, did well, although on account of her Sow voice man}' persons in the audience wore unable to hear her words. Her argument was good. Walter Asehonbrenncr, C'o- vina's second speaker on the negative, scored the big hit of the evening. His delivery vas very nearly perfect anil his speech interesting from start to finish. Tn delivery, argument and rebut!al he excelled his opponents, and completely riddled I heir arguments ia the few minutes of rebuttal he was allowed. Asehenbrennor is one of the bfst debaters Covina High has ever had and he will be missed next year, as he graduates in -funo. The period between the end of the speeches and the announcing of the judges' decision was well filled by two selections by the orchestra, and under the excellent leadership of our song leader, Alice Atwood, we fairly buried Pasadena in a flood of school songs. The mass of red and white banners I waving through the audience imparted I a riot of color to the scene. The club house and the stage were beautifully decorated with long red and white streamers, this combination being the colors of both schools. Upon the stage, which was handsomely decorated with fonts and potted plants, Covina and Pasadena banners were hung. j As soon as the judges, Superintendent ! A. N. Wheelock of Riverside, Superintendent J. H. Monltix of Los Angeles, and Prof. E. Shepherdson, head of the llrainiag department of the TJOS Angeles : State .Normal, had come to the conclusion as to the winning school, their decision was announced. Amid a dead silence Miss Waye read the decision, which aliowed Pasadena 190 1-1! points and Covina 201 L'-.'i. The yell which went up from C'ovina, upon hearing the good m ws, almost split the roof, and our debaters were overwhelmed with congratulations and praise. ('ovina has reason to be proud of Lor victory, for if we win the next debate we stand a. very good chance of being awarded the championship of Southern California. Jlere's to Covina!
