SENIOR CARD PARTY
October 25—The Senior Class of Oakland High School held a card party in the auditorium for the benefit of the school. About twenty-five guests were present. During the evening Mr. Reeves Blandford and Miss Geraldine Nordeck sang several selections. The Oakland Orchestra arrived unexpectedly and added much to the evening's entertainment. The proceeds from the party amounted to $50. Most of the money has been spent for books and magazines for the library.

ARMISTICE DAY PROGRAM
November 11—O. H. S. celebrated Armistice Day by having a patriotic program in the afternoon. Mr. Delbert Davis, a graduate of O. H. S., and president of the Oakland Rotary Club, gave a short address to the students. In his address, Mr. Davis told of some of his own impressions of war and made an appeal for world peace. In his appeal he stressed the necessity of each person doing his part in establishing world peace. After the program, the students were dismissed to join the American Legion parade and attend the Armistice Day program at the Maryland Theatre.

THE ACORN
November 26th- The first issue of “The Acorn," the O. H. S. paper, came out today. The Junior English Class was in charge of this edition of the paper and kept the date of publication a secret. The school was invited to attend a program. Much to our surprise, the Acorns appeared and were distributed to the audience.

CHRISTMAS PROGRAM December 20.

DANCE AND CARD PARTY
February 28—The card party and dance given February 28 to celebrate the opening of our new building was admitted as the success of the season. Everybody came to the Valentine Dance with his or her Valentine and danced to the snappy music of the Harmony Boys, and every card player strove to win one of the suitable prizes.

MR. RATHBUN SPEAKS TO THE HIGH SCHOOL
March 21— Mr. F. E. Rathbun, Superintendent of Schools in Garrett County, gave a splendid talk to the students of Oakland High School. The subject of his talk was "Attendance." Superintendent Rathbun pointed out the necessity of attending school regularly and the losses to the individual and to the school system as a whole when the attendance is low. The talk had a very good result. Since that time every effort has been made by teachers and students to have 100 per cent attendance in their respective rooms.
