TUESDAY,- SEPTEMEEft 24, 1918. >T8E tttJTHttlKSON NEWS. FAOE NINE. THE JUNIOR ELECTION (s Next on (lie Program at High School—A LUtte Rivalry Shown. Next thing on tho program of High School activities that Is at present occupying the uppermost attention especially of the Junior' class, Is the election of officers for the Junior class. Tills election Is to bo held Wednesday afternoon at- 3:30 o'clock, A great deal of enthusiasm Is being shown between sections of the class and the Joke seems to bo that just who are tho members of Iho opposing factions can not be learned. Bach one pretends to be on both sldeo. However^ rumor has It that Alva Fcnu, popularly known as Mud, will bo chosen as one of the candidates for presidency and a dark horse yhlch has just recently come to light as his opponent, Is Miss Keo JUchards. It has been felt that, there would be Borne opposition shown If for no other reason than to create a little excitement' in order to keep the paco with tho Senior class election. Hiss Hazel Howard seems to be the popular candidate for the vice presidency and so far thero seems to be no ono willing to openly oppose either Miss Howard or Miss Wilma Van Zandt who is seeking Iho nomination for the secretary and treasurorshlp. Want Viewpoints. One thing which .is attracting the particular attention of the Seniors just now U> this election, otherwise they would be entirely too busy with their own affairs to deign any recognition of their under classmen, and that Is the fact whether or not there' is to bo any Junior-Senior banquet. They are anxiously awaiting for the would he officers to proclaim their views of the subject. A great, deal of enthusiasm is being shown although the election will bring up no unpleasant circumstances and the Juniors are all loyal to tholr class traditions, Uiat of getting along with everyone. Howover It will l)e a hard matter to decide between the two presidential candidates because of the popularity and high esteem with which both young people are held.
