    The pup ils of the High School ga ve an oratorio, "The Prodigal Son," onApr il 15, 1908, at the C ongr egational Church. Under the able direction of Pro -fess or Bellingham, with some local a id, this proved to be a grand success.

    As will be noticed, th e Fresh men and Sophomore classes have not organizedthi s yea r. This course was tho ught to be advisable as very little is ever accomp-lished by th ese orga nizations .

    Other class es have boasted of th eir numbers and thei r class sp irit. We, theth e class of '08, have something more th an this of whi ch to boast. We do nothave as man y memb ers as some classes before us , but we have abi lity and pluckas is most clearl y sho wn by our work. We hope that afte r we have left the HighSchool it cannot be said of one membe r of '08 that he has received his diplomaundeservedly .

    C ommencement th is year will be held on J une 5. Th e twelve of the classchosen as sp eakers a re; Charles Sher iff, Jack J enn er, Will Finney , Roy Spetka,Frank Fox, Mari e Bowers, Marguerite Bange, Margaret Linds ey, Maude Walker,Marie Marw ick, Hazel Plummer and Marth a Pa y ne.

    In thi s, th e first ap pearance of the Annua l, we have end ea vored to give allour readers a better kno wledge of our schoo l and the work acoomplished by it,and to arouse enthusiasm in the hearts of all for a higher and broade r education.

    We have given an idea of t he artistic ability by many cuts. In the stor iesand poems we are confident you will find certa in evidence of litera ry talent .Neither ha ve athletics been totally neglect ed. We have exce llent basket ball andbas e bal l teams, showing th at there is st ill much spirit in th e school. It is also acredit to M. H. S. to real ize th e great num ber of its members w ho are musicians .

    The C omm ercial Departm ent, we thi nk, dese rves sp ecia l attent ion andpraise. Had it not bee n for the he lp of th ree of its students who so willingly havetypewritten all our ma nuscripts, we assure you t his paper would not ha ve beenpubli sh ed so quickly.

    Now we , t he staff of '08, wish to express our hearty app reciat ion and thanksto a ll th e teach ers , pupi ls and advertis er s who have helped to make this Annua la succ ess .

    If we have not attained th e sta ndard for which you had hoped, do not censureus too se verely ; rememb er th at we ar e only human. We do not profess to b
