Old Clothes Day Is To Be Held By Students Friday
Parade Through City Is Planned For About Noontime
People of Pleasanton do not want to think that all the hoboes have come to town, or that we have returned to the gay nineties along about noon today when they see a conglomeration of young people parading Main St, for it will be only the annual Old Clothes Day celebration of the students of the Amador Valley High School.
The students will be arrayed in the oldest and funniest costumes which they could procure. The parade will start from the high school at 11:45 o'clock and will follow a line of march thru the main streets of the city. The school band will lead the procession.
After the return to the school the students will be the guests of the sophomores and freshmen at a bean feed.
Immediately following the dinner there will be a grand march in the gymnasium at which time the faculty, acting as Judges, will select the best and funniest costumes.
As an aftermath the athletic board will award the block A to members of the football [s]quad.
Following there will be a Christmas program put on by the Girls' League. The entertainment will be as follows:
Song: “Deck the Halls with Holly," by everyone; song: "Just an Old Woman," by Melva Madsen; short play: "Light House Tragedy," by six of the girls; a stunt by group of girls; a selection of Latin songs by the Latin class; a reading, "Three Wise Men," by Olive Tripp; song: "Hark the Heralds Angels Sing," by everyone; song: "Rendevous," by Mildred Enos; Christmas selections by the orchestra; presentation of a Christmas picture.
