The E.H.S, anniversary dinner was enjoyable to all of the students. After eating the evening meal by oandle light, students, several faculty members, and the oooks together listened, to Bro, Braokbill’a retrospective view of E.II.S,, and its achievements, The school has grown from a first-year aoademy in the Park to tho college on the hill# It is logical to believe that its expansion in tho future will be on the sane or a greater scales
As we recall the fifth of December, 1939, we shall remember tho dormitory lady faculty members who so graciously provided an. anniversary cake and other refreshments.
Probably there are times when we stud ants think we do not have all tbe opportunities we would like to have—-but there are worthwhile opportunities Icnocking at our door every day. They are the opportunities of being kind and courteous.
JB may use those opportunities in our dormitory room, in the halls, at the mail boxes, in the dining hall, in the class room, on the campus and all the time, everywhere.
It is not likaly we shall be remembered for staggering successes made at school but for opportunities to bo kind and courteous. The kind and thoughtful deeds done will live on, long after otrr names and accomplishments are forgotten.
For what are w© going to be remembered?

Aocording to a census taken in penmanship class a few days ago, no class member really wants to be a "poor" penman. Of the 29 students, 15 desire to be "excellent" writers, 11 are striving to be "good" writers, and only 8 will be satisfied if their ability at tho end of the course Is only "average”. And it might be said that if all reach their goals,, this will be the best penmnahip class that E,M.S, has ever had®

College Methods of Teaching Class
It was found, in discussing the Dramatic Method of teaching, that there was a divided opinion in the; elaas, Sight of the members were strongly in favor of dramas and eight were strongly opposed to them, Bro, Mumaw suggested that we each prepare a two-minute talk, and tho next class period would bo spent in debating,
The question was stated thus: Resolved: That
all forms of dramatics in Christian teaching are questionable*
The debate was held at the next regular maet- ing of the olaes. The period v/as not long enoug however, and the rebuttals and the decision will not be given until next week.
It so happened that of a brother and a sister in the class} one was on the affirmative and one on the negative side, and of two couples of friends, the girls were on one side and the boys on the other, Bro* Lumaw remarked at the dose of the heated arguments, "It seems that some houses are divided against themselves, but I trust it will not be of serious consequence*"

On Thursday the Plane Geometry students bad ?;ho pleasure of spending their class period with Bro, Brackbill in his Study, This "treat” came- as the result of Bro* Brackbill*s having a sore fo&t and not being able to coma to school to meet his classes, While we wore there wo not only studied Geometry but also enjoyed soma very fine musio from Bro. Brack- bill’s phonographs We were chauffered there and back by Sister Brackbill, We certainly do hopo that Bro. Brackbill will not have & sore fo&t soon again, but we do not mind reciting our Geometry in hia study*
