Thomas reported that May 7, the day of the Senior sneak, 39 jun- ior, 3 sophomores and 2 freshmen left lehool in violation of the laws and ~les of the school, and that the pun- t~hrnent of 3 days suspension and oth- er penaltie were not sufficient to stop them in their attempt to follow the tenior sneak each year. Therefore he recommended the sneak be abolished the seniors to hold a picnic hereafter on Saturday and that any student leaving school in violation of the laws a~d rules of the school be expelled for the rest of the semester.

Remo Castagno was present in the iaterest of the Fire Department. He ~ted that 3 years ago when the Fire Department thought of taking over the playground, a committee met with the school board.

ISSAQUAH DEFEATED TOLT IN EASY GAME The ball game: here Sunday was a )oor exhibition ~f the national pass time. Judging from past games, with Tolt crowding Snoqualmie on the 5th and Issaquah winning by a very small adva~age from Snoqualmie, on paper a much better game was anticipated. But for some reason Tolt just could not get going. The final score was 27-8. Lindsay did the twirling for Issa- quah and allowed but three hits in the first four innings, while Iesaquah (Continued on page 4, column 8) CH qN LETTER ONLY TOUR NEXT TUESDAY versary.hnr of her eightieth birthday anni- BUSINLSS THRIVING STtP TED ~ar~,~i=,e~,v- Three brothers and three sisters ~,~ SAL~ L~=~1"(~.~r=-~I were present, the youngest being six- There is no change in sight in the Alfalfa fields, Ladino clover, Reeds iN 195q- IN U~ Y Canary grass, and good dairy herds i.IAT-CHIICKB'n,~.COA'~PO.(~ eXc .F..OEO D T~ ty-four and the eldest eighty.
