Membership for bblh students and, faculty members Is gained by securing 1010 votes by way of mysterious magic words and kind detds. Beginning wtth a "select few," March 1, the organization now boasts a membership of 60 persons. No one knows exactly how votes are obtained, but with the right word or action an A.F.P. member will lustily cry out, "You said the magic word, you have won 10 voles." In mystery lies enchantment, therefore, this new school activity has created quite a disturbance—but a nice disturbance. Advanced membership Into A. F. P. is held by those members who have passed their Mason and Dixori degrees. Sometimes the "and" degree is awarded before either the Mason or Dtxon, which Is more Intriguing, for one must find what he did wrong at the beginning and end and what he did right In the middle.

The "Hideous, Gluttonous Mash" Is on, according to a large orange and black poster display on the school's bulletin board. Activity is now In reverse. The A.F.P. is currently the P.F.A. "Hortense" is coming, according to announcement. Who or what Hortense is, is anybody's guess, but all await in anticipation. Rumor has it that initiations into this secret group will long be remembered. One faculty member, upon receiving an additional 10 votes, replied, "The mystery of the flying saucer has nothing on our own A.F.P." are to take possession as soon as Mrs. Pearl Rigg is able to occupy the home she has purchased at 679 East Acton avenue.
