THE PENSACOLA JOURNAL, SUNDAY MORNING, MARCH 9, 1919. HIGH SCHOOL NOTES By Sifl Solomon. Treak Day! This is what started it: "Wo , the Senior Class of 1918, do heVebyv designate the first "Wednes day In the month of March as "Freak Day." We sincerely hope -.- that , the Seniors who are to be will follow our excellent example, and will hereafter of serve this day as such, with due reverence to the Senior Class of Nine teen Hundred and Eighteen. . H. N. Levey, Pres. '18. Patti Gray, Sec Approved by John Shepard, school attorney. That is the proclamation, : In toto, issued by the Senior Class of eigh-r-en". The, class of nineteen, "with Lue reverence to the Senior Class of rghteen" has observed .0 this day as Mich. ' - '. Wednesday, to the complete Aston ishment, of the, school, the Senior Class appeared in regulation "freak" costumes. The costumes represented people in all walks and runs of life the colored preacher; the hick from try "sport," the "vamp.' the ..Jack Decatur,, male and female, the coun anapes, the hobo, and other costumes that brought out the natural charac teristics of the class. , The main purpose of freak day . seems to be to get "the faculty's an gora, which same is attendant . upon fun. The faftulty, however, seemed to enjoy it-i- in fact, one of them said, "It reminds me of home!" But, with al, lessons went on apace, and the day was not-lost, by any means. That's how history's made! The day after Senior freak day Is usually Junior Class freak day, but, for some reason or other the Juniors deemed it advisable , to dispense with same. '(ProUblT: remember the ex perience of Junior Class of last year freak day, lending In free-for-all!) But as J. I. Reese hath ' said, "The Junior girls will not have to decorate their section of the grandstand," so do we today declare, "The Juniors will not , have to decorate themselves to hold a freak day."

HARTSFIELD IS NAED TO 'HEAD BOYS' n DEPARTMENT AT Y. M. C. A. I W. Hartsfielct will come to' Pen sacola Saturday to take up his duties as secretary of the boys department of the Y, M. C. A. Mr. Hartsfield is The truth is never an insult! The . school is exceedingly enthu siastic over the prospects of the bas ketball season, interclass as weU as outside games. . Three games ' were played last week, as follows Tues day, Soph. 'Fresh-, won by ; Soph., score 12-7. Thursday, double-header Juniors 8, '" Soph. 2. Seniors 24. Fresh.5 4. The league standing is as follows: Teams W. I Per- Cent Senior . 3 0 ' 1.000 Junior ........... 2 ,. .. 1 . . . .667 Sophomore ' 1 ' 2 .333 Freshmen .......... 0 3 .000 '. The' Girls' Dressmaking. Class, Do mestic Art, under l the Misses Carter and "Walton have at last something to show for their work. Last Thursday they, gve an exhibition to . the school of really wonderful ' dressmaking they are capable of. Every member of the class wore dresses made ' solely by themselves, and we do - not hesitate to state that the dresses were really alluring, but perhaps the figures on which they were draped went far to ward making the dresses look so well, j The average cost of the dresses , was about $3.25, and although we have not had much experience in such matters, we doubt not that the least of them would have cost $10 at any store" in town. Economy is pur watchword!. The Sophomore-military issue of the Tattler, distributed last week is conceded by every reader to be the best Sophomore issue of the Tattler ever put out by P. H. S., and the Juniors and Seniors will have to "go some" to ' beat It." The prize-winning stories were written by Audrey Kellar, first and Jack Shuttleworth, second. Mr. Shuttleworth's " effort is a short humorous story, while Miss Kellar has attempted greater ; things,', and written a war "serial. This ' story promises to be the hit of the year in literary ' offerings in P. H. S. Besides these stories, the other de partments of the Tattler were way above standard. The joke department was especially well represented. Six full pages of good, clean jokes is rather hard to come across in school publications, but we have it in. this issue of, our-.paper. Probably, .what brightened the publication moretban any other one factor were the 'mlli tary .satires, cartoons and "1 writing, and the poems on every conceivable subject." "We never suspected we had such poetic talent in our school. . 'All in ; all. this was the brightest, snap piest and most amusing issue of the Tattler we have had the pleasure of enjoying in some years. , ; .The '. Junior class promises big do-; tags in ,its issue of the Tattlerj-Ofhe class jfrlayi, "Romany," now being pre pared, is. being given for the benefit of r this Issue. The play .is a gypsy melodrama, introducing characteris tic gypsy songs and dances, humor and pathos, abounding in dramatic and exciting scenes, chief among which, are the. wonderful and realistic storm scene which is very realistically pro duced, at a, heavy cost, and the ;duel, scene also; not "faked.- The comedy parts are taken by Jack Shuttleworth and Monroe Smith and you will miss a treat if you miss seeing the comedy auction pulled off by the gypsy calef and Kinchin, the former. Smith, and the latter, Shuttleworth. Altogether, the play is well 'worth double the price of admission charged. Feasts are getting rather popular around school, now that the lid has been declared off by Mr. Hoover. Starting with the Senior feast of two weeks ago, it has remained for our sister . class, . the Sfrhmores, to take up. theHdea,' and they held a feast last Thursday tfT the fourth period. It was enjoyed by all except the . jani tress, who had to clean up the mess made by the class. Next! Yes, the Sophomore class won the track meet, to the astonishment of everyone who has not seen the team in action. Undoubtedly the luckiest team won. But what is luck? Does it not come to. the man who works for it? And always to the best man? Well, then, the test team won. The second-best, the Juniors, were second, then Seniors and Freshmen. The meets have proven to be the greatest success of anything tried this year. And we repeat, we are satisfied the best team won- the Sophomores, for the meets were clean throughout, and not a single protest was entered by any captain. Hall to the Sophomores, the champion track team of P. H. S ! Who can keep the Sophomores down? No-o-body! . - Excuses. .' The other teams offer reason or ex cuses, "as you like It." So be it. Senior The other classes could pick their team, but we had to take what we could get. Our class is not so large as some. But we are happy that our, sister class w6n. ; Wait .till they are Seniors! . Juniors We have only this to say the best - team won but they, were asslstedby luck! We bear them no 111 will In the least, and recognize the fact that we have been beaten fairly and squarely. . The Sophomore class has a fine team., without a doubt. Freshman Just Freshman. That's enough. The trophy, the silver loving cup on a mahogany plaque, will be pre sented to the Sophomore class on Monday it la being donated by the Goldsmith -Sporting Goods Co through Wilson-Biggs.
