Editorials Po/W System Spreads Activities Among More There are 'always a few students in high school who seem to take the lead in every activity. They are loaded with titles—president, chairman, editor and the like. These offices and titles are beneficial to the one student, but not enough students have a chance for the experience. Therefore, interest in an activity lags. This lack of interest became a serious problem for the class of '46. The student council then took action and came up with the point system. Numerical values were established for any important position held by a student In recognized activities. The point system, as printed in the 1946 Ad-Vance, follows: Major ' organizations — student council, president 6, vice-president 4, secretary 3, treasurer 3, member 1; class officers— president 6, vice-president 4, secretary 3. Masonian, editor-in-chief 6, associate editor 4, business manager 4, photography editor 2, art editor 2, organizations editor 2, copy editor 2; Cub Gazette, editor-in- chief 6, managing editor 4, business manager 2. associate editors 2. Minor organizations — Hi-Y, president 3, vice-president 2, cabinet 1; Hi-Tri, president 3, vice president 2, secretary-treasurer 2, cabinet 1; G. A. A., president 3, (1 business manager 1, cabinet 1. !! Band, president 3, vice president [| 2, secretary 1, treasurer 1; orches- j| tra, president 3, vice president 2, |j secretary 1, treasurer 1; chorus, 51 president 3, vice president 2, sec| retary 1, treasurer 1, alumni sec- fi retary 1, historian 1. | Red Cross, president 3, vice | president 2, secretary 1, treasurer *' j 1; M club, president 3, vice president 2, secretary 1, treasurer 1; Quill and Scroll, president 3, secretary 1. Students are not allowed to hold office with a total in excess of 10. This system has increased interest in activities and has succeeded in spreading the duties in these activities. It seems to have accomplished its objectives. Shoes to Be Taboo at t Hi-Tri Club Sock Hop Shoes will be checked at the 'door when the Hi-Tri club sponsors its 3rd annual Sock Hop at the Y. W. C. A.. Monday at 7:30 p. m. Admission will be 20 cents stag and 35 cents per couple. Plans for the event were announced by Brenda Barnes and Suzanne Pierce, co-chairmen, at a Hi-Tri meeting Monday evening.

Adviser Neil Puhl Smiles Greet Gridders as They Tour Polio Hospital Shoes for the entire. family Smiles and cheery greetings from polio victims met the Mason City high school football squad on its conducted tour of the polio ward of the Children's hospital at the University of Iowa last Saturday. The squad stayed overnight in Iowa City after a football game the previous evening in order to make the visit to the hospital. Although the gridders weren't allowed to see any serious cases, Coach Howard Barker termed the visit "very interesting." , Children of all ages are treated, but the majority are in the age group of 3 to 9. Most interesting to the squad was the room in which braces are constructed. Most of these braces are very valuable, but they are given to the patients for the cost of the labor. Superstition and ignorance Indians, Birds Are Topics of Next Pay Assemblies SHOES 105 No. Federal AG^JES BENNETT Teacher of VOICE and PIANO 421 North Adams Phone 3228-W Use Our Christmas Lay-away Plan played a large part in the building of the hospital, the boys were informed. The building is all on one floor with the exception of the nurses' quarters because disease was ^bought to spread upwards at the time of construction. The children have both indoor and outdoor play areas. Bicycles are set up in each room so that the patient may exercise. They are so built that they will remain stationary when the back wheel revolves. A tilting table was one of the main attractions of the tour. The patients are strapped onto the table. For some patients this is their first time in an upright position since contracting the disease. A shop was provided for the older patients in which they spend their extra time developing skills with their hands. The squad was not permitted to give the patients candy, but they did present them with toys. Two pay assemblies will be presented next week. Frank Hopkins, who has assumed the title of "Chief Minne- osta," will exhibit his Indian collection Tuesday at 10 a. m. in the high school auditorium. Details of the program are not available. Barrel rolls, waltzes, gymnastic performances and stunts will be featured by the Pamahasika Pets Wednesday at 11 a. m. This bird show under the direction of Raymond V. Roberts was engaged at the Children's theater on Enchanted island at the Century of Progress in 1933 and 1934. Roberts' trained macaws and cockatoos will be featured in a dance in which six beautiful white birds will waltz. One of the birds, "Little Billy," mystifies the audience with his addition and subtraction. Trained canaries will ride a ferris wheel and merry-go-round and do barrel rolls. Concluding the show will be a battle scene in which the American birds storm the enemy fort and fire a cannon to gain an American victory. details for the entertainment are being handled by student committees.

Classy corduroys are tops on the fashion parade in tones of crimson, rust, brown, green and blue. Suits of fire engine red have been flashing around the halls on the persons of Darlene McNary and Jean McCarty. They do come in handy on "Red Mohawk" Fridays. Dresses tend to be tailored with weskits, and vests are growing more popular. Lois Hunter has been seenjsporting a delicate blue corduroy weskit with a matching dray-string purse. Tweeds are also striking the fancy of clothes conscious teenagers. This fall skirts such as Jo Ann Osmundson has been wearing and coats of tweed are all the go. Tweeds in brown patterns with touches of bright colors lend a gay atmosphere to the crisp autumn days. To accompany these, wool jer- sey blouses are the pick of high school girls. Catching one's eye is Norma Buffington's rich cocoa brown jersey blouse. Feet are receiving attention, too, Soft suedes in many colors are adorning many a foot. Springy crepe soles brin^ added comfort. Marilyn ' Wagner has a snappy pair of gray suedes. Sue Flickinger likes rust, and Ros Romey prefers black. The girls aren't the only ones with new styles. The masculine students have been sporting bright corduroy shirts in green, blue and red. Paul DeJong bedecks himself in the latter color. Exactly opposite are the dress shirts in pastel pinks and lavenders, which seem popular with the fellows.
