We, the Juniors of the Alli
ance High School, in order to
establish a more perfect school,
do advise that the law passed
after the Sophomore outburst be
enforced and that the members
of the faculty that took part in
this disgraceful stunt be ousted
from the Alliance High School

Sophomores' folly, but we will
not consider that in this case.
We can not have a perfect
school with such conduct as this.

must live it down and show the
patrons' of our school that we
are here for a different purpose.
And with the co-operation of the
remaining faculty and students
we will try to wipe out this dis
