Laurean Society HELEN SMITH - - - - President SIGNE ADOLPHSON .. - Vice President RUTH M'INTOSJ - - - - Secretary ESTHER NELSON - . . . Treasurer The Laurean Literary Society was organized by the girls of the two upper classes in 1914, under the leadership of Miss Brunner. Im- mediately it seemed to meet a long-felt want, and its work was appreci- ated both by the student body and the Faculty. The work of the group has of course varied in nature and scope from year to year, but this variety has added to its interest. The results have always been worth while. Besides material of a strictly literary nature, the Programs have included musical numbers, and even laughter-provoking stunts for, since: "A little nonsense now and then is relished by the best of men" why not the Laurean girls? Some very entertaining and money making plays have been given by the society, and usually an annual banquet is held, but this year a party was substituted, and as much enjoyed. In every way the Laurean has been a credit to the school. It should be kept as an integral part of the school life. As a social organization, it increases the enthusiasm of school spirit, and as a literary group it tends to broaden the education of its members. Each new class in its turn has taken up the work in a creditable manner, and every girl gradu- ate of E.-H. S. is grateful for the many benefits she received from the society. All members of Laurean 1920 hope that the work of the society will be continued and enlarged in the future.
