Mason Clly Clobe-Gaiettc^Mason Clty?I»' Editorials Class Work, Athletics Need Not Be Neglected Too often the activities of the classroom are neglected in a high school paper. The citizens of a community read only of the extracurricular activities that seem to outshine the work in the classroom. Of course, extra-curricular act- tivities are important. However, they should not force the school room into oblivion. Last week we attempted to inform our readers of the projects, assignments and subject matter discussed in the classroom by means of a column, "Direct Report to the Taxpayers." We received such favorable comments after its appearance that we have decided to make this a regular feature. We are proud of {his new feature; we are not proud of our sports coverage. 'Combining a news page, an editorial page, and a sports page in a single sheet presents many problems. We feel that none of the three departments should be neglected. However, we have been neglecting sports, and, to'be frank, we do not have a solution. We. do know that sports should occupy approximately the same position in the paper each week. With this in mind we plan to devote the Jowev parts of column 2 and 3 to the athletes. We do not believe that our readers will want to read the stale re"-ports of contests that were played 8 days previous to publication of the Cub. Furthermore, the games are very ably reported in the Globe-Gazette by Jim VanHeel, who does a much better job than we could possibly do. Maybe interviews, sidelights and features will be the answer. A f least, we are going to point in that direction. The reactions of our readers will indicate the success or failure of our endeavor. *—*—* Assembly Entertainers Will Want to Return Fifteen cents please! That is a common phrase nearly twice a month around Mason City high school 1 . It means pay assembly time. These assemblies are obtained largely through a service of the University of Minnesota. Careful selection is made of the available programs to provide Mason City students with talented performers who will present an educational message.

Vtams, Dads to Be Guests at Next Game Des Moines Is Foe for Parents' Night East Des Moines will furnish he opposition for the Mason City Mohawks in a Big Six conf ex-en ce ootball game here Friday eve- ling. The contest has been designated s Parents' night, and mothers and athers of the Mohawk gridders lave been invited to witness the ;ame from the players' benches in the field. The parents will be ntroduced over the public address system. Coach Harry Helgason's Mo- lawks will be battling Friday for heir first Big Six victory. In their Dnly other loop sta/t they dropped a 25 to 6 decision to West Water- oo, although statistics gave the Mohawks an edge in first downs and yards gained. Socrates Pappajohn, junior u uard who has been cited all year )y sports writers for his fine de- 'ensive play, was injured in the Waterloo tilt. He probably will be ost for the remainder of the season, depending on the speed with which torn tissues in his knee mend. However, another injured grid- der, Bud Berger, a defensive back, s expected to get back into the ineup for Friday's tilt. Berger has been sidelined with a wrist injury. Woodhouse, Engel to Be Opponents Mason City students are await- ng eagerly the Minnesota-Iowa football game this year. Two former Mohawks will be opposing each other for the first ime in this tilt. They are Don S. Woodhouse, Iowa halfback, and Skip Engel, Minnesota fullback. , Both participated in track in addition to football while in school lere. Woodhouse also played basketball. FUTURE HOMEMAKERS VIEW THE PRODUCT—In their classroom kitchen members of this senior foods class have been busy canning fruits and vegetables. In the above picture 3 girls are removing pears from the pressure cooker. They are (from left to right) Marianne Deming, Ardis Hegland and Dorothy Entner. In the background, busy on another project, are Pat Cory, Beverly Holland and Bette Cookman. Marian Dickinson is their instructor. Homemaking Classes Find Answer to Food Problem ment and educational value gives this type of program a definite place in the day's schedule. At the first assembly program this week the conduct of the students was very good. Such conduct will make the entertainers want to come back to our school again. It is one way in •which we can show our appreciation for the excellent programs provided for us. Band, Chorus to Be Heard Over WOI The Mason City high school jand and mixed chorus will be leard Monday afternoon over WOI, Ames. Broadcast time is 2:45 p. m. These musical groups made a recording last week for Monday's broadcast. The vocalists will sing "Battle Hymn of the Republic" with Don Miller as soloist. The band will be featured in a pre-game salute. By DARLENE McNARY "Good food and plenty of it" is the first step toward maintaining good health. Home canning is the answer to this problem. That is what 115 future homemakers have learned in Marian Dickinson's food classes. After studying the history of food preservation, the girls applied their newly-gained knowledge in the classroom kitchen. Use 3 Processes Three canning processes have been used—the open kettle, pressure cooker and hot-water bath methods. Foods which the girls have canned include peaches, pears, apples, grapes, carrots and tomatoes. The girls, working in pairs, can one item each class period. All foods canned will be used later in the year in meal planning and serving projects. Movies Shown Along with this canning project, movies on methods of commercial canning and the history of preserving tomatoes have been shown. Through their study • the girls have learned that most foods can be canned and will maintain their flavor and food value for an indefinite period of time. This is very important in most homes because home canning usually is very economical. The next project for the girls will be the study and preparation of jellies, preserves and butters.
