A CLASS CLUB AND AN AMATEUR PLAY
COUXEM.I I^. GRAY,
2040 J<alie Street, San Franrlaeo
I AM a pupil of Bergerot school, and
a member of our class club called
the Knights and Ladies of the
. We have meetings on Friday after
noons, from 2:30 to 3 o'clock. We
have furniahed our room with beautiful
pictures and, mottoes, club motto
being "Nobjlesse Oblige," which means
"I do, right because my honor requires
it." ,AYe liave also vases around the
room, in*\v>(hich we keep .wild flowers
or greens. ., We always keep our room
in order, anid-have a monthly commit
tee which sees to this.
We occasionally -indulge in enter-,
tainments or» plays, which afford much
amusement Itor; the school. \
Last term vve studied "Rip Van Win
kle" ln-.Jiteru.ture.. A thought struck
us that we i.ijight make a play, of it>
This we, did, iand after several weeks
of trial and lVractive we succeeded in
our plans. '.
This play -\vas given by the girls
and some of the makeups were so good
that many of us were not recognized.
. A black slouch; hat, old pants, old
overcoat ami b tight red kerchief, made
up Rip's costutne. His son". v (myself>
looked almost the same, only his
clothes were mulch too large, especially
the pants. "\u25a0- Daiine • Van. XV'inkle. with

.The idea struck the two men as be-,
ing 'worth -trying. Some wood-was.
ground up and mixed with water and.'
pressed through rolls; and' the'flrst. ;

was. the result. •\u25a0
