CHILDREN'S DAY PROGRAM. Two-Hundred and Seventy-Five Dollars Subscribed for* the Mission- •ry Mar.UIned by Local • Church in Africa. Sunday proved a day memorable in the history of t,h«s Christian Church of this city. It was Missionary Rally tUy in the Sunday School and although the pastor, Sunday School fcupertntendent and teachers were looking forward to great things to be bccompltahed by the local church for the cause of missions on that day, the results far exceeded their expectations. In the morning 240 children answered to roll call at Sunday school and a collection which passed the $200 mark was raised toward the support of the church missionary in Africa. In the evening scores were turned away from the doors of the church, unable to gain admission, returning to their homes disappointed at being unable to listen to the splendid program rendered by the children. Fully 500 filled the sacred edifice. The collection added to that of the morning made $275 for the cause of missions raised by the church on Sunday. Evening program. Song, by congregation.

Kindly Covlna Critic complains that there was no vulgar vociferous applause at- the excellent entertainment given by the Glee Club of the Normal School, under the auspiceB of the Amphion Society. As the affair .was not a public entertainment, but a reception at which most of us were guests, such exuberance was not in order, but there was certainly no lack of heartfelt appreciation of the sweet "garden of girls." Besides, the audience was well aware that the young ladies had to hurry through the program to catch a car. "K. K. K." ends with an Indirect question, "Covina people may or may not be cultured." Those of us who hail from Boston of course are, since in that aesthetic atmosphere, even the boot-blacks and scrub-ladies are models of refinement. True culture springs from tiie heart and soul; it is not a veneer, to be put on or cast off upon occasion. It is to be the highest we can, body, soul and spirit, and then to forget ourselves and only remember that we are Just a tiny piece of God.. Some of us try so hard to be cultured, that we cannot forget ourselves, which is the hallmark of true culture. However, this is not a western fault, for we are proverbically honest and will not pretend to be other than we are. For our children, we need have no fear, for it would b<? almost Impossible for them to be associated with the women on the staff of our schools with unconsciously absorbing all that makes for true culture, and amongst our school girls we have luany whose dainty persons arid gfr-Mo man-- ' '-;'<! not surpassed among the nobility of Kurope. A Westerner. Wednesday evening, June 9th, the Junior class entertained the Seniors with a theater party, chartering a special car and going to Los Angeles to attend the evening performance of "Jack Straw" at the Mason. A very enjoyable time was had by all: Last evening the Sophomore boys entertained the girls of tliat class in a return reception at the high school An excellent program was given, games were played, and at a late hour the reception ended with "Goodnight, Ladies," after enjoying light refresh merits. .."•..; ; •- . •• [, '•••• , Commencement exercises will begin Monday, the 14th. Exams will also be in order about that time. The Senior exams have been held this week, and also a few of the underclassmen's. There will be quite a change in the faculty when school resumes in September. Prof, van Vliet is going to Hollywood to accept the position of mathematics and Spanish teacher, Miss Hawes has accepted the position of teacher of the French and Gorman classes at the Pasadena High 1 School and Miss Lummls has decided to cease instructing students in the ways of Caesar and Cicero and Instead, it is rumored, has accepted a permanent position as housekeeper for a young man she has been very well acquaint ed with for some time. We arc very sorry to lose these teachers from thi: faculty, as they have been very pop ular with us. Our capable and efficient Instructoi in mathematics, Miss Griswold, wil leave in a few weeks for a trip "across the pond," and will spend her vaca tlon touring Europe. Covina Higl" School wishes her an enjoyable trip The class of '09 numbers 22, of which 8 are boys. Of this number, al b,ut one intend entering some hlghei institution of learning, either whei the fall semester opens or next year This is a splendid record and one that will not be rivaled very soon by any other high school in Southern Cut fornla of the same Ki/.e.
