8 Sept. 24, 1949 Mmsoii City Globe-Gazette, Mason City, la Editorials Use the Privilege of Student Government This past week in all homerooms representatives to the student council were elected. These representatives have an important job to do because they are the voices of the individual students in school activities and functions. How many of us realize that it is a privilege to have a student government? • We must use this privilege. Any complaint or idea can and should be given to your representative to present before the entire student council. Council members give much of their time in order that an event such as homecoming can be carried out smoothly and efficiently. They appreciate toe suggestions that students have. Frequently a matter comes back to the homeroom for discussion. Give it some serious thought and 4 let your representative know your views. In this and only this way can a student council function properly. We'll Stick^to*Just "Pass the Drumstick" We are- cured. Next time we have anything to do with drumsticks, they will be the tasty type covered with a crisp mixture of goodness. All this pain—and it was a headache—can be traced directly to Paine. In the future we will not report that the marching band's drummers had used colorfully decorated drumsticks until we see them ourselves. And as for white gloves—we'll handle the subject with kid gloves. Seriously, we are awaiting with' great interest the appearance of the drummers with the white gloves and decorated drumsticks. Henry Paine, marching band director, will have to excuse us for stealing the show a week in advance.

By ROGER HOLTZ Football is more wide open now than it was in the early 40's. That is the opinion of John A. "Judge" Grimsley, Mohawk coach of nearly 10 years ago. "There is more passing and this naturally opens the game up," Grimsley continued. Grimsley, who was noted for his strong defensive Mohawk teams, is visiting in Mason City for a few weeks. He now lives in Carmel, !al:, and is employed as area rent director for the Office of Housing Expediter in San Jose and Monterey. Under Halas After he left Mason City in 1942 he joined the navy with a rating of lieutenant commander in the 7th fleet. His superior officer was George Halas, present owner and coach of the Chicago Bears professional football team. While in the navy he was stationed in the Pacific and was director of athletic and recreational affairs. Grimsley was a spectator at the Mason City-Sioux City Central football game. He thought the ame was' exceptionally clean and well-played. Points Out Play He pointed out one play which was successful, but which could lave, changed the whole affair. With li minutes to play, Mason City had the ball on the Sioux ity 45 with 4th down and 4 yards to go. The Mohawks gambled on a first down.and Don Klang was caught behind the line, but he kept digging and got the needed yardage. The last previous time Grimsley watched the' Mohawks play was in 1945 while he was still in the navy. He believes the caliber of football in 'Iowa and California is about the same, but the basketball here is superb to that in California. In 1942 and 1943 under Grims- Added Weight Aids Van Every Dave Van Every, senior back, scored 3 of the Mohawk's first 4 touchdowns this year. The 160 - pound gridder has added 10 pounds to his playing weight since last fall to give him an added ruggedness to go with his' speed. In track last spring he crowded the 22-second mark fot his leg of the 220 on relay teams Dave scored once against Ames on a 62-yard jaunt and twice in Mason City's 20-14 win over Sioux City Central. His touchdowns in -the Sioux City game were on 55 and 10-yard runs. Gordon Newman, Sioux City's lashy backfield star, gave the VIohawks their greatest trouble with his end sweeps. He scored wice, once on an 80-yard kick- iff run in the last quarter. His ather is photographer for the jioux City Journal, but was nol m hand to take pictures of nis on's brilliant runs.

Howell Group to Entertain at Assembly Glass Blowing Art to Be Explained The Howell Family Glass Blowers will inaugurate a series of pay assemblies Tuesday at 9:55 a. m. n the high school auditorium.

Howell, Jr., has , been working for more than 30 years in :he art he learned from his fathqr at the age of 8.

Countless showings have taken Lhem to every state in the union, as well as Canada, Mexico, Cuba <4 43 Students and South America. The art of glass blowing is passed from father to son through many generations, are now one of 8 The Howells families that practice this craft regularly. The Bohemian type of blowing involves glass tubes held between a very hot fire and wood blocks so that they expand evenly while being twisted and blown.

Miss Riter, who toured Europe this summer, said that most Europeans are very anxious to learn all they can about the United States. They, like the 2 Poles witb whom she talked on a train have ligh regards for the Americans. She flew by plane both ways across the Atlantic. HeV trip to Germany and Switzerland ,w a s made by bus and the distance rom Paris to Munich was covered by train. Upon arrival in France the group of teachers of which Miss Riter was a member, attended classes 3 days a week and spent the remaining days in sightseeing trips to factories and schools. The tour was arranged by Columbia university in New York.

In Munich high schools enroll boys as young as 10. Boys and girls are separated in most schools. Vacation begins about July 20, and the re-opening of school is Sept. 1. Students abroad are required to take more ALICE RITER subjects than here, and emphasis is placed on languages. Among LUC mings iviiss .s.iii8r thought most interesting in Paris were the general atmosphere, the many students traveling — hitchhiking and bicycling — and the shop windows. In England she signalled out the rather poorly dressed people who didn't seem to be experiencing much pleasure in life. The beauty, cleanliness and neatness of Switzerland was outstanding, she said. In contrast was the depressirr* sight of the bombed cities in Germany. Miss Riter deplored her lack of knowledge of the various languages making it difficult for her to converse with the people in their native tongues.
