|This organization selected as its name Eutopia, coming from the Latin word “Utopia,” meaning –a place of ideal felicity and perfection. Thus the Eutopians have striven to make the society ideal and perfect in every way possible. For their colors they selected Royal Purple and Old Gold; for their motto, “Up and Doing;” for their flower, the English Violet; and for their emblem, the Triangle.
The purpose of forming this new society was to create more interest in the H. S. by having the two organizations instead of the one. The first year there was much friendly rivalry- notably a spelling match in which neither side succeeded in spelling down. There was also a basket ball game between the Pythian and Eutopian girls, which resulted in a victory for the Eutopians with the score of 20-6. A “County Fair” given by both Societies was a success and the proceeds were used for the benefit of a reference library for the A. H. S.
The Eutopia started with seventeen charter members and at the beginning of the year 1911 the enrollment was thirty-one, but, ever-remembering their motto, “Up and Doing,” the Eutopians for 1912 number seventy-six.
The Society gives a program every two weeks consisting of about ten numbers, musical and literary. A public program was given by the Pythians at Thanksgivving time and the Christmas program was given by the Eutopians. Besides this regular work of the society the play "Esmeralda” was given.
Here’s to the Eutopia Society,
The purple and the gold!
Here’s to the English Violet,
And our member brave and bold!
Whoop ‘em, Scoop ‘em!
