graduation of hundreds of Co-op alumni, and year after year, I've seen them occupy positions of merit in the community. This is evidence of the immense spirit of brotherhood found in this special class, offering opportunities of education plus part-time em-

Indeed,

The Blac'kwell Literary Society boys succeeded this year in carrying out their purpose which was to set high standards in school citizenship, to have programs beneficial to the education of each member, and to develop clean habits and traits

among

the boys.

The society had a year of excellent programs including guest speakers, book reviews, and a movie. The social activity was rounded out by a party given in the spring.

An

outstanding feature of the club was way in which the students participated voluntarily, taking all responsibilities for the success of the programs. Such co-operation is indeed commendable.

As I was looking down from my nook one activity period, a small, active group of boys and girls in room 215 dreAV my attention. It was the Mimics Dramatics Club, a group promoting i)lay-writing. I learned that two plays had been written and presented, showing the ability of the members not only in writing, bnt also in acting and producing. Critics were invited to judge these plays and to

speak on play-writing.
