The present is composed mostly of people have had experience in their respective positions, a.Ai therefore they have well in mind their respective duties. The size and shape of the 1922 "Black and Gold" will probably be similar to that of last year. Entirely new designs and ideas are being incorporated in the comin'gi book so that it will be entirely new and different from that published last year. The school crtists this year are working an oak leaf and acorn in as the back- ! ground for tho art work on many of the pages. This has been chosen because of the stately oaks growing on the campus, as well as for what it sym bolizes. According to present plans some of the pages in this issue are to be tinted and this will add greatly to the gereral tone of the book. The staff plans to have most of the engraving done by the latter part of January and to have the 1922 "Black and Gold" ready for distribution about the first of May.

Black And Gold HIGH SCHOOL PREPARING TO ISSUE ANOTHER EDITION OF BIG BOOK Staff Selected With Edith Davis as Editor in Chief, Edward Kimes, Business Manager and John Char les Rible, Advertising Manager. By Frederick Edwards The students of Fairmount high school have decided to Pu,t out an -n" jnual again this year and have already completed most of the plans and doire much of the preliminary work. Last year was the first year Fairmount high school attempted to put out an Annual, but the undertaking proved to be a great success as have all other projects undertaken by the local school. The AnrXial last year was called the "Black and Gold," from the colors of tlie school. Three hundred copies were sold and the book when published consisted of one hundred pages. The standard set by this edition wa8 very high indeed. The cover was black with an outliife picture of the building embossed in gold. Gold pages were used for the art designs which were printed in black. These designs made by Miss Beth Winslow were easily the equal of any to be found in any high school AiAiual in the state. There were many pages of good live pictures printed on the best Siberian Enamel white paper. Miss Esther Mendenhall was the very capable Editor-in-chief for this editior. - However, judging from the plans already made and the staff selected the Annual to be put out this year will undoubtedly equal and probably surpass the 1921 edition Miss Edith Davis has been selected as Editor-in-chief. She was assistant editor last year arAi has proven one of the most conscientious and efficient students in the high school. Loren Cain is to be Associate Editor; Merle Carter, Lit- I erary Editor and Fay Peirce, Assist I ane Literary Editor; Rhoda Helms, j Society Editor; Frederick Edwards, f Athletic Editor; .Mildred Lyons, Joke I Editor; Beth Winslow, Art Editor; j Jack Bon'ar, Assistant Art Editor; !

"Call Me Early in the Morning," Ruilt the Ark." "Should the Duck Lam to Sing," "Good Night Ladies, etc. This is a "dark face" minstrel and is just running over with jokes and fun from start to firish. It should nrove fullv a big a hit as did "Uncle Rvbe" in which many of the members of this cast had leading parts last yesr. So everyone is looking forward to Tuesday and to the big times that are in store for all. Everyone is invited to attend, come prepared to stay all afterrJoon and evening, to eat supper at the fair and to have a good time during every minute. Proceeds from the vocational bazaar will go toward the purchase of supplies for the vocational department.

The consideration was given, in part, as $300,000. Before the property of the companies is turned over to the Black Painther company, the sale will have to be approved by Judge J. Frark Charles. The sale included the refinery of the Service Oil company at Fair-mount, eleven wholesale stations in Indianapolis, Lafayette and other cities, and four filling statiorfc including those at Kokomo and Lafayette. The Service Oil company had a large number of stockholders in Marion, Fairmount, Lafontaine and many other town's in this part of the state. Before going into the hands of a receiver, the Servicec company spent large sums of money at Fairmount in the building of large storage tanks. refinery and stills, until at the present time it is one of the largest refineries' in the state. , The Black Panther company was heavily interested in the Service Oil property, it is understood. , Mis, Maxme Banister was absent from school the first part of last week.
