But their worries were over as she returned the following day. - o - And speaking of plays, a well performed, well directed play was held last Saturday night in the auditorium. Even 'a spot light and curtain boy got something out of it. . . .like money I Was Dave Beisell the first guy to qualify for the light switch job? - o - The freshmen may find it a little difficult to buy things this week because of collecting class dues. If anybody needs a loan contact Vicki Anderson, the freshman class treasurer! That goes for you too, Fitz! - o - Thefe was another of a continuing series of F.B.L.A. candy sales after school Friday. MMM- MM. . . .Goodies, goodies, goodies! - o - Say 1 Those Junior High skating parties are really getting wild! Even though a "hot" forty-five minutes gave them time to dance they had a heck of a good time skating. Watch out next year 7th graders. It may be cut to 30 minutes! - o - A little capital jargon to keep the readers groovin': From the movie "Alfie" - A bird is referred to as a girl; If you are going somewhere, you are "strapping out". - o - Father: "Well, Son, how are your marks?" Son: "They're under water." Father: "What do you mean, under water?" Son: "Below C level."

For a little pride is the wellspring of courage. Let us endure unflinchingly whatever sacrifices we are called upon to make to defend our free institutions from the night of communism, which is bent on undermining our faith in ourselves. Let us rely not only on the gold in our vaults, but the iron in our blood. And let us cling like ivy to the faith of our fathers until, in God's good time, all men are free.
