8-Algona (la.) Upp»r D«* Meines Tuesday, May 23, 1967 ACTION THE END. All good things must come to an end. ForEsteban and his fellow seniors this was the last week at the warehouse. Some thought it would never end and others were just getting started. The weather finally brought along its friend, Spring, and action picked up at the pits, on main, and the speedway encircling the school. There was plenty of action at AHS with the seniors frantically peeling through their notes in preparation for the finals. The juniors had to build a winning combination for their field day massacre. The sophomores had to learn what makes a magazine tick, memorize Spanish lines, and face the freshmen boys in baseball. The freshmen were busy attending hay rides and giving speeches. And the teachers . . . .theybegan to assemble their wits for the last ditch onslaught .... semesters. - o - PD LIKE to get things straight on one item. You don't really think our principal, Mr. Allen, is a warden, do you ? - o - ONE EXAMPLE of the progress of the senior class this year is the improvement in the English Lit. grammar test which was given before and after the school year. As a whole, here's how the class improved percentage-wise: Capitalization-From 80 to 85. Spelling - From 70 to 75. Sentence structure - From 50 to 831 Punctuation - From 70 to 84. Usage and applied grammar — From 70 to 75. Juniors: Don't think you are kept idle in English Lit. - o - STUDENT COUNCIL chose Miriam Kautsch to attend the state workshop at Cedar Falls this summer. Miriam will be a junior next fall .... if she can pass that rugged Spanish final. - o - BASEBALL STARTED last week. With Espe, Claude, Meyer, Boldridge, Farnham and Barr as headers, the Bulldogies will undoubtedly be a motley crew. They'll play a 23-game schedule. (To Craig Espe, pitcher) "Rock •n' fire". - o- STUDENT COUNCIL held its picnic at the park last Friday after the strenuous field day activities. By the way .... how was your day in school, underclassmen ? - o- "HITTING THE BOOKS 0 GRA hung one on at the Lucia Wallace gym last Friday. The gals had their annual slumber party complete with pillow fights and friendly tussles .... any AHS "hoot owls" make the scene ? - o - THE FACULTY golf tournament took place Saturday morning at the Bancroft course. Tee- off time was 11:30 but we wonder if Early-bird Vint wasn't out there a little earlier checking out the turf. - o - MISS COMFORT and the lunchroom gang treated the senior patronizers to a REAL MEAL last Thursday. With a choice of three kinds of meat, mountains of mashed potatoes, and assorted supplementary items, the free dinner was worth the extra-long wait. Many thanx for a feast fit for kings. - o - THE GRADUATES-to-ba are busy practicing how to stand up and sit down together for baccalaureate and commencement. The final practice for the big event will be this Friday at 10:15 in the auditorium .... a dress rehearsal. Report cards will be distributed at that time. - o - SCORCH IS back. Along with its companion publication, the Voice, this collection of excellent writing contained the work of several masterminds. It included stories about Little Green Elephant Ears and funny freshmen limericks. A bright spot in the sophomore section was Phil Bode's "Seven Deadly Nono's" - all about an athlete's training rules. And then there's rowdy Don Riedinger's first criminal act of "Infantile Delinquency". • - o IN SEARCH of different words and phrases used around AHS, Pve been stymied. But through attendance of classes Pve noticed some phrases which are used quite readily by teachers at AHS. How many times have you heard Mr. Palmer say "in essence" or "in the aggragate"? Ever IPLANNING A PARTY? • WEDDING • GRADUATION • BRIDGE • BUSINESS • ANNIVERSARY 'ideal parties for any size | group large or small. De- rcorations and centerpieces | a specialty. IDEAL PARTIES Phone 295-5376 AlOOHA notice how the word "via" slips into Miss Miller's lingo? How many times has Howie yelled "0 A animals I?" Here are some others: Mrs. Kelley - "presently". Senor Franco-"vamosaver". Mr. Meyer- "Pll tell ya right now". Mr. Knobloch-"Number one". Mr. Nettleton - "Lark, turn around". Mr. Goodpasture - "Awl right, quiet down". Mr. Warner - "All right you guys .... pick your seat". Mr. Chiquet - "SShhhhttT". - o - SO FAREWELL to AHS. There'll be visits and letters but no more rigorous class schedules to follow. No more cutting up (or down) by Esteban. As you might have heard me say when jivin' with the "Group" . . . "We're gonna take a little break right now." To Be Ordained Mark McGovern, son of Mr. and Mrs. Joe McGovern, former Whittemore residents, will be ordained to the Priesthood in Dubuque on June 3. He will celebrate his first Mass at Riceville on June 4 at 11:00 a.m. Mark is a nephew of Mrs. Elmer Elbert.
