Later in the week a Freshman class meeting was held, in which the class officers were elected. The ambitious motto "Striving to Win," was chosen by the aspiring Freshies. Their taste for color is enviable and likewise theii colors, Old Rose and Gold. Donald Buller and Ruth Weaver were selected to represert the class in the Student Council. September 9, the Freshmen were entertained at a reception and initiation. A program was rendered which was followed by refreshments. The FreshmerJ gave their first party September 23.

Call and see us and let us help you with your plans. ' Mrs. Ella Patterson Art Shop By Leslie1 Wilbern. Before the year 1919, F. H. S. had not devoted much time to orchestra work. DurirJgi the latter part of that year an orchestra was organized com By Carl D. Leach. When the new gymnasium is finished it will be one of the best in this part of the state. It is modern in every way as it is well lighted by electricity arAi well heated by steam. The gym will seat from eight hundred to ten hundoed people. The new bleachers are a great improvement over the old ones. They are well built and are more comfortable than the old ones. They will be painted in the near future ai'd this will make them look better and will also improve toe looks of the interior of the gym. When the gym was partially finished a layer of cement was put down over the ground, a floor of ordinary lumber was laid down over the cement aiM then the hardwood floor of the old gym was torn up and laid in the new one. The floor has been scraped, sanded and covered with a coat of filler. After it is covered with a final coat of wax, the floor will be in an excellent corldition. The gym is located just south of present time. The spirit was fine, and we were so anxious to do something that would be of importance, that we gave orte hour each Monday and Thursday to the good of ou.r orchestra. We would not have been so progressive without the splendid supervision of our director, Miss Mary Sample. posed of wind and string instruments This year we lost three players, one graduated, another moved away, ard the third resigned his place to a new member.

We hope to set new members from the second orchestra to fill the places of the five Senior members who will graduate this year. We have new parts for the drum, new music, much more time to devote to music and the enthusiasm for a great year ahead of us. We have also thought of giving another play this year.

However it was the beginning of a wonderful organization for music students.

Only one year's work is required for graduatioil. But it is such an interesting subject that many students are taking it every year. This course is very beneficial to the person who takes it.
