They will be officially installed April 25 and serve their terms starting next fall. - o - WRESTLERS MET after school last Tuesday to vote for honorary team captains and most valuable wrestler. These honors will be given at the awards assembly later on. - o - THURSDAY WAS a warm day and a perfect day not to be in school and the Cadettes weren't I They were hard at work, though. They performed at Vet's auditorium between the girls' tournament games. The pep band went along to help the marchers perform .... bet it was a little harder to be heard in the big barn . . . or did DJ take his amp ? - o- CAPITAL JARGON definitions: "Header" can be taken the wrong way when referring to a per son's complexion, but in cool talk it means a "real swinger". A more ancient term that has died out is "Ace". This also means a person that really "swings". And, of course, a bit of profanity or a coarse statement is now considered not crude, but "gross"* Any kind of money, whether it be paper or coin, is called "jing". If you want to take a nap you just tell everyone you'd like to "cob some z's" and nobody will bother you. - o - IN RECENT Student Council action, an order for license plates with "Bulldogs" printed on them was approved. These plates will be in school colors. The first order is for 200 of them to be sold at the beginning of next year.

What? You don't have that kind of money? No sweat .... Uncle Ernie has gobs of coins for investment. See, he's made a million because he is such a wizard with stocks and bonds, so he'll loan you the bills. Also, develop a good vocabulary if you hope to grasp the subject and be a part of the discussion. - o - WE'RE SURE you've all read that if you don't understand what you're reading, then read it aloud. Well, don't get into that habit because it could result in getting ejected from study hall. One student was reciting poetry in sixth period study hall recently BY ESTEBAN and had to "bite it" or else get out. He read the mate rial silently and still couldn't grasp it, so he finally went outside (of his own accord) and filled the halls with "The Ballad of the Oysterman". Yes, we certainly follow the rules here at Stalag AHS. - o*NEWS BRIEF: Russia has a better teacher-pupil ratio than the United States, reports the National Industrial Conference Board. There is one teacher per 19 students in U.S.S.R., and one per 25 here. ^Scholastic Teacher magazine - oFLASH: PEP Club had its regular meeting Monday in the study hall. Reeeal Good I - o - THURSDAY NIGHT Mr. Sonksen and five lovers-of-the-art traveled to Mason City to see "Romeo and Juliet". Students witnessing the stunning new motion picture were Linda Martin, Sandy Harmes, Mike Dailey, Jeff Gilmore, John Hinders, and meeting them in Mason City was Dave Roethler. The famous Dame Margot Fonteyn and Rudolf Nureyev performed the Royal Ballet, which is worth seeing at any price. The 2 1/2 hour production cost the students only $1.50. «• O ™ THE LONG-awaited Computer Dance finally made it to AHS last Friday night. Some interesting pair-ups were managed by whoever rigged the computer. Miriam Kautsch was kept busy at least.... she had 14 matches 1 - o "I'M STILL waiting for some school to come up with a march protesting student ignorance."
