As sixty-three seniors of the class of '31 draw near the end of their high career, they begin to think more definitely of the future. What possibilities there are in any graduating class! Some plan for further study in the different colleges and universities. Some plan to begin work right away and not go on to school. Others— but there are so many possibilities in such a class! Whatever phase of life each senior plans to follow, and whatever kind of a career each decides to take up, everyone sincerely hopes that each person will meet with succss. As members of the Algona high school, we know that we have a standard to uphold and that our reputation as a high school demands that we give of our heart to the honor of our school. — Helen E. Morrow. Geometry Classes Make Drawings. The geometry classes have made original drawings for projects this semester. The drawings were made by straight lines, arcs or a combination of the two.

Several are dressing Elizabethan dolls to illustrate the styles of dress of the jeriod. Some are illustrating scenes of :he play with original drawings. Small models of Elizabethan theatres are being built by others. Still others are becoming better acquainted with the period by reading books dealing with that time, or written by various authors contemporary with Shakespeare.
