Runners-up were Gloria Pederson and Paula Meyer. Other events that night included presentation of the creed by Doug Bacon, Todd McDonald and Mike Shaw. Questions were asked of the contestants by veteran FFA students to demonstrate their knowledge of the meaning of the creed. A panel of college students consisting of Roy Peterson, Bill Kunert, Bernie Hanson and Phil Ernst discussed the Agriculture program being offered at ISU at Ames. The night was completed with a demonstration by the Parli- Donovan to visit psychology class Robert Donovan, school psychologist, will visit the high school psychology class to lecture on intelligence tests. The students have been discussing the merits of taking intelligence tests, stated Cal Muller, instructor. "Intelligence is a hard topic to understand even though it is the most studied area of psychology. It is easier to say what intelligence is not than what it is," declares Muller.

FFA instructor Milan Petras also announced that the FFA Awards night will be held next April 16. I From i i i i i the Principars Desk i receive honors Honors were given to three members of DECA at the area contest held at Fort Dodge High School Jan. 30. First place was awarded to Jodi Burdick in the job interview category and third place was won by David Mesicek in sales demonstration. Honorable mention was given to Walter Jensen in sales demonstration judging. Filling out a job applicaton, greeting the secretary and sales manager were the criteria on which Burdick was judged. Mesicek was judged on his approach and selling ability. Judging the sales demonstration and being awarded points for his decision on each entry gave Jensen his honor. "I felt students who took pan gained a great amount of insight for the state contest in March. I think the students enjoyed themselves and meeting other students." commented Richard Furst DKCA advisor. Other students who attended this contest were: Lori Anderson, Hick Andersen, Terri Conlon. Shirley Erickson, Sharon Haugland and Jeff Kleiss. Moench, Dan Johnson and Paula Meyer react in a 1 variety of ways. inary "exit reports" from this evaluation group indicated many positive things going in in our school as well as many excellent suggestions for our staff to consider as we ponder ways to improve Humboldt High School. And, finally, the one more big day that would make this an exceptionally big .week would be a large turnout for parent-teacher conferences today (Friday). Delmar J. Cram H. S. Principal NOTICE There will f j( . ., Fellowship of Christian Athletes meeting this Sunday night. March ;i, at 7:30 p.m. in the home of Gene Crist. Preparations for the conference rally will be made. All athletes or anybody interested is invited to attend. With the district wrestling tournament now history and the N. C. A. evaluation team gone many of us at the high school feel that the past week was filled to capacity with activity. The wrestling tournament just had to be one of the finest displays of high school wrestling to be found at the district level. The proof of this will come this weekend in Des Moines when the state champions are crowned. Our prediction is that the representatives from this district will uphold the reputation well established by previous grapplers in this part of the state. To conduct a tournament the size of the one last weekend takes much planning and work. We saw both last Friday and Saturday. Commendations are in order for Mr. Kuhlman's management of the tournament and many thanks to the staff members and students who volunteered their services, and to the Wrestling Boosters who manned the food service and assisted on the official's bench. It was great to see this kind of community effort. Perhaps this is why a coach of a state championship wrestling team said it was the 'best run tournament his teams ever competed in'. Our thanks go out, too. to the entire high school staff and student body for the manner in which they cooperated with the twenty- three member N. C. A. team. The two and a half days were very busy for the committee and, hopefully, productive for our high school. The prelim- Classes take ICCC field trip A field trip to Iowa Community College, Eagle Grove Center, was taken by the shorthand II, typing II, office simulation, and office education classes Feb. 13. Its purpose was to give the junior and senior girls a chance to see what the junior college offered in liberal arts and vocational courses, remarked Darlene Hotz, instructor. The girls were introduced to ICCC's educational pro gram by a student counselor and a teacher, brochures were handed out following a discussion answering questions posed by the visiting girls, stated Hotz. Secretarial courses were stressed in the presentation, since this was the prominent interest of those visiting. The girls then were taken on a tour of the campus and completed their visit by talking to secretarial students. rtffi^yfiimulation class consist! :?

Bond raffles beef at pie and coffee concert BAND CONCERT, which stands for Bandsmen Assemble New Daring to Creatively Offer a Notorious Concert of Excellent Reward Tonight, will be presented at 7:30 p.m. Monday, March 4, in the high school gymnasium. This is the third annual "pie and coffee" concert to be presented by the band, according to Gary Currie, HHS band director. "This affair promises to live up to our reputation for varying somewhat from the standard music concert routine," said Currie. "We will see the. serious side of the traditionally fine HHS Concert Band." *"They perform Gustav Hoist's "First Suite in E-flat," the driving, dynamic, and exciting ".Masque" ~ by McBeth, and the rhythmically complex and interesting "Mexican ( Suite" by Barle Hageri," said Currie. He added that the band will also offer some Broadway music with selections from "Fiddler on the Roof," venture into the rock-idiom with a composite from'the "Chicago V" album, and for country music fans present a "Gettin 1 Country Medley" of three toetappers reminiscent of the Nashville Brass. A variety of homemade pies will be served during the concert while concert-goers are seated at tables in the fashion of the famous Boston' Pops Concerts. The Jazz Band willl also be on hand to entertain. In order to raise money for this summer's band trip the band will raffle a quarter of beef to an adult ticket holder and a six-month pass to the Humota Theatre to a student ticket holder. A chance on the raffle will be included in the admission price of the concert, but the winners need not be present at the concert to qualify for the prize. Admission prices are $1.50 for adults and 75 cents for students through 12th grade. Living with the future by Tom Albertson Many of us talk of the future, wishing for wealth and prosperity, • while others dread it with a fearful passion. This semester many sophomore English students are doing something about it. Learning to cope with the future is indeed an increasing concern of people today, and it is with- this in mind that communications concepts instructor, Gerald Christensen, is basing his current unit. This unit, called Cope, represents one of the new teaching methods available today. Learning through simulation offers students a chance to participate in real-life situations. Cope encourages its participants to answer such questions as: What is a good and bad future; can we in any way cause the kind of future we prefer to have? In this simulation, students are born into a city of the future, called Technopolis. Life is experienced in this city through five future time periods, each 'being 10 years apart. Each 10 year period is called a Creative Production Module, or C.P.M. During each C.P.M. students, through group interaction, complete various creative and productive tasks, such as trying to adjust to a pace of change that is even more dramatic than today's. As students experience . Cope, they will find it is much like playing a game. During this 20-day unit, they complete four Creative Work Units. These C.W.U.'s represent a student's wealth in this simulation, and also a substantial part of his grade on this unit. Eventually students will stumble onto the two fold objective of this simulation— to increase their C.W.U.'s and to solve their individual problems of living in the future. Christensen feels that using Cope is a favorable idea, because it is a vital concern for students to do some futuring, actually thinking of what life and times will be like. When Christensen asked his students for some of their concerns for the future, such things as pollution, death and destruction arose. But also, mentioned were such things as cures for diseases which now are seemingly incurable, such as cancer and other muscle diseases. Space travel and life in other planet^ were also forseen by studerrls. "A lot of the kids think Cope is great," says Christensen, "while others tend to crawl into their shells, not wanting to participate." But Christensen is hopeful that these obstacles will be overcome to make this unit a As in all offices, when wmeone leaves you give them a party. Office simulation was no exception, aa they gave Lupana Montoya a farewell party her last day in class.-Review Photo. new and different kind .of success. *************** Scoop from the soop by Supt. R. Wesley Carlson *************** The invitation to submit a written communication each month to the readers of our school newspaper is a welcome opportunity to share some thoughts and ideas relative to our school program or to educational issues in general. We shall attempt to direct these remarks to members of our student body and if there are questions or issues that they would like to submit for comment they may feel free to bring them to my attention. We are approaching the end of our winter activity season and we feel it only appropriate and fitting that we commend those students who have been representing our school and community as participants in our athletic, music, and dramatic programs. We believe that the co-curricular activity program is an integral and important part of the total educational experience and those students who have chosen to participate will gain considerably through their association. Success In these activities should not be measured only in terms of won - lost records or in ratings received. Rather each individual participant should recognize that he will gain in direct proportion to the degree of personal contribution to either the group or individual performance. We believe the desire to succeed in these activities is important, and the willingness to make the necessary sacrifices and expend the necessary effort is fundamental and necessary if the participation is to meet the individual's expectations. As stated previously we commend each individual who makes the effort to be a member or a part of these activities. We feel certain each is a winner as they will be a better individual and will continue to cherish many memories from these experiences. test given oy msirucior vm i» JaKSf- Tnew topfci... __ - ^ the TflfamitlM ovef the first towf chaptert of tRi iritfdduetbfy tiftlt, "Building Human Natufe, "Social Interaction" will be the next unit, said Mullw, it, wifl intrude language afld 'symbolic communication, interaction, aftd social control. ' ' ' i » if udtes learning , The principles! of learning are being studied by the psychology class, stated Cal Mueller. The students have discussed the theories of opefant conditioning, classical conditioning gjfd programmed learning. This area involves experiments where the subject must react to a stimulus and make a response. Background of WW I itudted Background study of World War I is now being covered by Bob Pattee's sophomore history class.-.They are learning the reasons for war, general advances of ; war, consequences, business and financial gains made, and the USelessness of the war, stated Pattee. Two days are being spent in the library for individual research reports. Patte added that his class has just completed a three day simulation in which-, they learned the difficulties in negotiating a peaceful conclusion to a crisis situation. Study eoriy governments Early forms of government and how they helped mold the present government are the topics how facing government students, stated Gary Newell, instructor. The class is also engaging in special projects as essays concerning why we need government and'how it Wa« formed, and also worksheets to aid the students with their studies, added Newell. Supply and demand learned Learning the law of supply and demand Is the current objective of Cal Muller's second semester economics class. According to Muller, supply and demand are the primary determinants of price. Students are also learning to graph supply and demand and to find the point of equilibrium. This is the point towards which the forces of supply and demand are pushing the market price. At the conclusion of this chapter, the students will be given a test over the second Unit, which includes chapters two, three, four and five, Mueller said. ., Ag boys make sparks Ag III classes began work on electronics last week according to Milan Petras, instructor. Petras said that the class will study safety rules and the basic procedures before starting any wiring. Petras is planning a field trip to R.E.C. to see the different equipment used to transmit electricity to the forms. Petras stated that the class will work on electricity for the rest of the nine weeks. Art studies textures Working with texture plates is the current Art I project, stated instructor Lyle Schwendemann. These texture plates are used with ink to make etchings. ; Some of the projects Schwendemann piangit^cover the "•' rest of the year "With the Art ''I' classes' are mbbiles; 'I painting, mixing colors, and combinations of'colors. At the beginning of the year the students worked with clay and made anything they wanted. Schwendemann said that the students liked this project the best of any they have done, and they worked quite efficiently. Transportation studied Transportation is the unit being studied by the consumer math classes, stated Jim Filips, instructor. Areas being studied are the costs of different types of transportation, and the modes of transportation. A guest speaker, A. F. Kuhlman, gave a talk on car buying, financing and the costs of ownership. This unit will be continued for one more week and after a short quiz the classes will begin a new unit on estimating income- and planning expenditures, reported Filips. Typing letters under study Typing letters is the unit now under study in typinu II classes, stated Darlene Hotz and Carol Jensen, instructors. Business letters will be typed with carbon copies. One day out of every week the classes have production tests consisting of typing letters while being timed. The unit will last two weeks. Algebra II works proportions A chapter on ratios and proportions is being completed by Algebra II students, announced instructor Carl Warnngton. The next chapter under study includes the use of exponents and radicals. Warrington said that the students will discover a new kind of number and conclude the chapter with a test sometime next week. Speech selections given free A public performance of the selections which were presented at the State Group Speech Contest will be given March 13, stated speech instructor Meredith Case The presentation will be given, free of charge, in the little auditorium at the high school. It will include those students who participated and received ratings at the state contest in' Cherokee According to Case, there have been many requests for such a presentation, and the students are workine to make it the best performance.
