Cliffside Youths Honored by Girls
Cliffside, Nov. 1—The Cliffside High School building was a scene of hallowe’en merriment and gaiety last night when the girls of the Senior class gave a party in honor of the members of the football squad. Everyone was dressed in Appropriate costumes for the occasion, so many ghosts, spooks, demons, witches and other varieties of spirits supposed to be abroad on the Eve of All Saints Day were to be seen as they entered the doors of the school buildings. The famous line of Dante, the great Italian poet, “Abandon Hope All Ye Who Enter Here” was not placed above the doors for it would not have been true as all who did go to the party had a royal good time and would be glad to go again. Many games were played and one in particular was much enjoyed. It consisted of taking the guests, blindfolded through the large building, making them take many turns and twists and then leaving them in lonely spots.
Faculty Are Guests
The faculty of the high school were invited to attend and among them were B. P. Caldwell, Superintendent of Cliffside and Avondale schools, C. A.
