ACTION THE ALGONA High School debate team composed of Greg Perkins, Denny George, Greg Powell, and Jetf Allen placed fourtli in Class B competition at Uie University of Iowa, April 15th. The state field consisted of some 50 high schools. This was the final contest for the squad, which was led by John Vint, AILS instructor. - o - GUESTS PLANNING on attending the Prom signed the banquet seating chart outside study hall last week. After your name you were to indicate "C" for coffee or "M" for milk, but to what does the "B" refer? - o - THE WRESTLING lettermen ate out Tuesday noon. The Lions Club treated the athletes to a luncheon of chicken and trim' mings. Oh, but nothing beats Miss Comfort's yummies for the tummies ... not even a FREE meal at the Algona Hotel I - o- OUR HARMONIOUS mixed chorus entertained the Garrigan student body last Tuesday morning. The assembly program at Garrigan got some of us out of that sleeping first period class, and into a much more pleasant atmosphere. - o- SurfingisOUT. Asking the kids over to throw the javelin is IN. - o- WE CONGRATULATE Bill Boldridge for being one of the 8 finalists in state contention for Mr. FBLA. Bill took a test at Cedar Falls as part of the elimination process . . . says it was college entrance exams all over again. Of course, the test also included many questions about today's business world. - o- THE SENIOR class chose its class motto and flower. "The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step" is the motto and the blue daisy was the top choice for noble flower. The date for Baccalaureate is Sunday, May 28, and commencement is set for Thursday, June 1st. Guest speaker will be Dr. Paul F. Sharp, President of Drake University. - o- BECAUSE OF their supreme efforts for the AHS Carnival, our custodians have been given gift certificates as tokens of appreciation. The deserving recipients are Mr. Strayer, Mr. Devine, and Mr. Stevens. "Much- as gracias" from the students! - o - THE NAVY Band is "in town May 2, at 1:30. Students will have the opportunity to hear the famous band in a special concert at Garrigan. Tickets were sold last week and Monday for only 75$. Students not purchasing ticket remained in the warehouse. - o - "WON'T YOU come home BUI Bailey" has take over the number one spot on the charts. That is, the track and field charts at AHS. Seems this song penetrated (or was it nasuseated) the coaching staff during the early portion of last week. All I wanna know is WHO starts whistling the songs in the lockerromm? - o - PEP CLUB elected officers for the '67 - '68 school year at the regular meeting last week. They are Phyl Moulton, present; Cathy Bixler, vice-president; Marne Parrott, secretary; Colleen Frink, treasurer; Sherry Kramer, poster chairman. - o- HOMEMAKING D probed the inner thoughts of Chris Conn, Leland Brown, Max Miller, Steve Voyles, and Dean Meyer in search of the boys' ideas of the ideal girl, where to go on dates, the date conversation, going steady, conduct, and manners. The panel really played it cool for the girls with the only basic disagreement coming when ONE of the panel members insisted it was better to "go steady" than "play the field". Guess Who? - o- SOCCER ACTIVISTS opened their "season" at Lucia Wallace Field last Saturday afternoon. All persons interested in a healthy, invigorating sport were invited. - o- SATURDAY WAS also the day for the unveiling of the magnificent work of the junior class of AHS. Through the consolidated efforts of class leaders and laborers, the Prom was certainly in contention for the "best Prom in my 19 years at AHS" (as one observing professor put it). Now that if s over, does anyone need a 15-foot dragon? The moat around the castle provided a convenient area for enraged teachers to dispose of outrageous students ... but we hear there were but few threats. - o- HERE*S A couple of sophomore favorites to think (?) about: who wrote in Ann Frank's diary? And how many QUARTERS are there in a football game? - o WE RAN across this in Spanish class which met in the junior high study hall last week: written on each of two sheets of paper was the statement "It is my responsibility as a student not to play". If YOU are the student in need of this wonderful piece of literature, we'll trade it to you for the name of the teacher who issued the assignment. .. deal? - o- CAP1TAL JARGON:(From Lynda Byrd Johnson's survey) ALL- TIME- the greatest. BEAR - a tough course. BLOW YOUR COOL - get flustered, up tight. BURNED - hurt emotionally. CLOSET CASE - a friend, often one of the opposite sex, whom you don't want someone else to meet. COME GRUBBY - wear your old clothes. 6-Algona (la.) Upper Des Moines Tuesday, April 25, 1967 PICTURES OF the cast of "Stardust" may be ordered in room 160 this week. There are 23 different shots available, and you may order as many as you want. Bruce Ritchie Specials! - o - WE'D LIKE to commend sev- eral hard-working senior girls for their efforts toward the completion of the senior class will and prophecy. Cheers! for Barb Knudsen, Sandy Harmes, Lark Whittemore, Carol Sloniker (and her mother), Bea Kay Marshall, Rose Mino, and Barb Knudsen, again (because she composed and directed the prophecy). - o - THE SENIOR class prophecy film didn't make it back in time for the anticipated showing at the junior-senior banquet. It is hoped that as soon as it returns from the processors and has been censored and spliced, we may all view it at an upcoming assembly. Es posible, amigo Allen? - o - CRIES HEARD last week: "We need more girls for papier- mache", "We need more ex- celsiorl" "We need workers in the gyml", "We need imitation grass!", "We need 5-gallon buckets filled with sand or other heavy material!" and unfortunately, "Attendance has been terrible!" However SOMEBODY must have worked on the prom.
