Last week many of the high school graduates returned to take a final look around before leaving for the various schools of their choice. Among these were the following: Leonard Rose, who will be at Loyola this year; Paul Arnold, who will be at Sewanee, Tennessee, attending college there. Edwin Brigham, Dorothy and Helene Doty and Willard Schwenk have gone to the University of Illinois; Guy Osborn to Wisconsin; Marie Freudenberg to the National Kindergarten College, Chicago; Margaret McMillen, George Arnold, Charles Burgy, Dorothy Iliff and Hugh Patterson to Northwestern; Dorothy G. Brown, Louisa May Greeley and Olive Bulley, to Wellesley; Helen Dingee to Smith; Charlotte Parmelee and Mary Taylor to Bradford, Massachusetts; Charlotte Tuttle to Mt. Ida Preparatory School for Girls, near Boston, Mass.; Naomi Fulton to National Park Seminary at Washington, D.C.; Robert Wenban, Marshall Davies and Lyman Drake to Dartmouth; Cordelia Olmsted to Rockford; Helen Palmer to Waterman Hall; Winthrop Case to Beloit; Marjorie Hatch to Lewis INstitute; Carleton Kanmeyer to Lake Forest, and Robert Markwell to Yale. This is not a complete list, but is all available at present. New Trier has reason to be proud of the percentage of her graduates who continue their studies in higher institutions.

Both of the girls' literary societies were launched last week with an informal reception for new members and election of officiers. The Elizabethans held their meeting at the home of Norma MacMillan. Their hostess was chosen president; Eleanor Nichols, secretary; Katherine Scheidenhelm, vice-president, and Esther Bellows, treasurer. A number of new members were received.

Gymnasium classes for the boys started this week. Senior and junior boys have work the sixth period and freshman and sophomore boys the seventh and eighth periods three days in the week. The girls' classes will start next week. Their work has been delayed because Dr. [Alice Barlow] Brown of Winnetka, who makes the physical examinations, was caught in the war zone and was unable to get back by the opening of school.

Football practice, both Rugby and soccer, is going on vigorously every day. Next Saturday afternoon the heavyweight team plays against Elgin high school at Elgin. The following week the league season opens with a game with the Carl Schurz high school.

The voices have all been tested and the chorus work is partly launched. With this careful classification of the voices it is expected a high grade of chorus work will be done this year. There are about twenty students in each of the classes in harmony and musical appreciation. This is a new feature at New Trier, and we hope it will become a very popular one.

Zenobian Literary Society held an informal reception on Friday afternoon for the ten members coming to this society from Elizabethan. The meeting was held in the society room. Officers for the year were elected: President, George Tuttle; vice-president, Elizabeth Greeley; secretary, Louise Logie; treasurer, Helen Leonard.

Three of New Trier's teachers were honored this week by being invited to speak at teacher's conferences in the near future. Miss Bedker of the domestic science department and Miss Grover of the free-hand drawing department will speak at the high school conference at the University of Illinois the last of November on the correlation of their two departments which has been so well worked out at New Trier. Miss Bedker will also speak at the eastern section of the Northern Illinois Association of Teachers son Nov. 6. Mr. Childs will address the association on "High School Athletics."
