The purposes of the Brigham Young University High School as stated by the constitution of the school are: (1) to provide unity and activcooperation of the pupils and faculty in all ities of the school; (2) to develop the spirit, ideals, and practice of good citizenship in the school; (3 to provide means of adequate ar government and 'management of all activities; (4) to promote the general welfare of B.Y. High, its good name, reputation, and its possibilities for the achievements of its purpose; (5) to bring about equality and justice to all pupils, in the benefits and responsibilities of school life; and (6) to provide a satisfactory means of carrying on relations with other schools and business relations of thq pupil organization. These purposes cannot be achieved by however. It takes the united effort of the students and faculty. The lack of cooperation is very evident in many classes, as well as in dances and parties. Homework and projects are assigned for the good of the. students, not to increase the teachers knowledge.' This fact is not known to many students or they would display better attitudes toward the school as a whole. Why. not try to make the school purposes our individual purposes and make for a betted BY High. extra-classro- om extra-curricul- SENIORS LOOK BAQK ON YEAR OF UNUSUAL AND .VARIED ACTIVITIES Once again the senior bracket of B.Y. High has Been filled by a great class with a long list of activities and g. The president of this group has done a fine job. This has been one of the most successful years ever seen at B.Y. High. The road from humble Freshmen to omnipotent Seniors has been a busy, eventful and memorable one. These youths started as happy, carefree kids, with a future free of clouds, and offering bright opportunities for self -- chosen lives. Now they leave as young men and woment going into the world bright and new with a great future a head of them. We stress to them to keep this up and they will become successful in their lives a head of them. , For your own benefit go on with your education after you graduate from high school. Some people may wrongly suppose education to be a trivial sort of thing. We must realize now, while we are still in high school, that it is an indispensible part playda'in our lives, but it is what determines whether we will become a success or a , failure. fun-makin- SENIOR CLASS OF Are You FORTY-EIGH- Hall-Conscio- T ? us The crucial moment is drawing Are you proud of your school nearer and nearer.

The word thing is the best word I could think of to describe " it. Truly, it is a . . thing. ' The dictionary describes it as the , prominent portion of, the face above the mouth which contains the nasal passages and the olfactory nerves, and it give3 as synonyms muzzle. and snout. Do you .realize that if you had no nose yoir would drown? When it rained, water would pour into the holes in your face that would replace your nose and choke you. Therefore ye can say that one use of this thing is as a shelter to ward off rain. And furthermore, statistics- show that even in Alabama it might rain someday. Another1 use for the nose is to blow when you have a cold. This is a very popular sport especially in these United . States. All you need for equipment is a cold, a handkerchief, and of course, a , - nose. , j The nose enters'"- into almost everything' people do. One of its ( favorite hangouts is. in other peoples business. It even, enters into love. Girls use it lure their victims into their grasp.. This is possible because men are attracted by a cute ttle nose thats turned up on the end. This gives them a babyish and innocent look behind which they hide their devilish schemes and - . ideas. On th football field the nose is mainly used as a brake to stop the players when they miss a tackle, and not, as most amateurs think, to plow up the field. There is another use of the nose that Im not sure. needs mentioning here but since I was instructed to cover the topic well, I will, And that is er I be lieve its called . . . er . . .... smelling.
