"ALLE." * * « . FORT HILL HIGH The theme is Hallowe'en.- The social room, recently opened for the Hep Cats and JIvers of the school Is decorated In the familiar orange and black that announces the arrival of that day. Black cats stare with humped backs from the •walls, and even the new Jazz version of "By the Light of the Silvery Moon" adds to the appropriate setting. During the lunch periods the room Is packed to capacity with momentarily carefree students. Edward BeaU, head of the Social Department of the Student Council, Is In charge of the social room, and It Is due largely to his efforts that It has started so successfully. The underclassmen, seventh, eighth, and ninth graders, are holding 'a Hallowe'en party in the Boys Gym on October 27. If you'll permit a bit of reminiscing, I can remember the Hallowe'en parties that used to be sponsored by the school annually. I wonder what happened to that festivity? Just a tip to the entertainers this year, don'l forget those fortune telling booths cider stalls, and candy 'sales that helped make such a success of the old parties. We upperclassmen look on enviously and "wish you fun and revelry. Plans for the initiations for the Boys' and Girls' Hi-Y's have been completed after meetings of both those organizations this week. We're looking forward to seeing the candidates for membership given "the works" soon. It is rumored that the Fort Hill Players have already iven several plays to their own group, and that these plays ore now ready to be presented to the school. All we can say is "Don't make us wait too long before displaying your latest dramatizations." To the football players go compliments on the excellent game they played on Saturday with Martinsburg. As report card time draws near the students nervously settle down to increased efforts of scholarship. The question before the board seems to be, "Why do six-weeks periods have to come around?" Leaving you with this question. In mind, I grope dazedly for my notes on Greek Drama and wave my hand belatedly, murmuring to myself, "Aristophanes, great Greek writer of comedies, born . . ." * * * GIRLS CENTRAL HIGH Tuesday afternoon the Western Maryland Conference of the C. 3. M. C. held its first meeting of the scholastic year in Carroll Hall. Featured on the program was a motion picture depicting the life and customs of the African natives. The picture was shown by Rev.

MARYLEE •• • * GRANTSVILLE HIGH Wednesday marked the end of the suspense here at school. The pictures arrived and everyone was well pleased with the results. While 'yours truly" was writing this Stem, one of the teachers walked lu to show off some of his sophomore pirtnros, but v.'= insisted the .seniors couldn't be beat.

Savage decided to go riding on a wild horse. She Is now. confined to .'her home with a slight 'concussion o! the brain. We think that she should stick to the nwrry-go-round. Don't you agree? Have you seen a curly- top blonde ,boy with his arm in a sling. He could only be Royden Welmer from the Junior class. We tried to find how. it happened but he said merely-that, the floor raised up and slapped him. We are pleased to see that .our two faculty members have returned after Illness.
