Notional magazine Earlier tests? by Ann Toner No one likes semester tests. They're a burden to both teachers and students. It is grossly unfair to have these tests come on the heels of Christmas vacation. Because of this, instructors must begin preparing the tests and students must begin studying for them during the holidays or at least com- rriense worrying about them, instead of observing Christ's birthday, having fun, and relaxing. Students con forget quite a lot in ten hectic days, particulary the more complex parts of their courses, of which they fake a difficult test over before they have hod a chance to remember what they forgot. Therefore, it has been suggested by both teachers and students that semester tests be administered before Christmas vacation with research papers and notebooks due after the holidays. Thus teachers could correct tests at their leisure during the vacation instead of having to also prepare the next day's lesson and students would have ample time to research and prepare their papers free from semester test worries. This plan has been used effectively in other schools to the betterment of all.

Eagle Grove »on by a wider margin, 22-16. but there were some close matches that could have gone either way, Ron Bvgness got a reversal at tbe gun to tie 6-6 against Eagle Grove. He lost to his Clarion man. It may be my Imagination, but the Clarion trappier looked ?0 pounds heavier than Ron. Butch Laird lost lo hist Clarion man a! lit pounds and skunked Bruhl of Eagle Grove at 103 pounds. 5-0. Butch now has a 10-1-1 record. Mark Daggy has really been tauailng since be was lied at AMco. He beat both hh, Clarion and E«i* opponents and mide efforti to deck th«m »)• dW not quite g«t U done. Mart I* now 14-0-1. Bob 8bort lost Ws first though It's a tough break for Bob, it's nothing to be ashamed Geoff Mlckelson could have pinned his Clarion man If he had a little more eirperlence but settled for a 0-5 win. His Eagle opponent was smart and fast and Geoff's tremendous strength couldn't stop him from losing 2-7. But watch out next year. A loss is going to be a rare event for Geoff after he gains more experience. The weight of winning both meets for us fell on the shoulders of Herb who just missed in both efforts. Against Clarion, he had a man who held him off for a 1-1 tie. Herb made an outstanding effort in the last 30 seconds against Eagle to the roar of an hysterical home crowl. but fell short In his efforts and lost 4-5. Too bad he did not start a little earlier, I don't usually mention junior varsity wrestlers but Cliff Erickson deserves some recognition. Cliff has pinned his last five opponents and looks like an excellent prospect for the varsity next year. Clarion and Eagle Grove are two of the wrestling powers of the *tate and Humboldt's boys m«de fine efforts In their losses. la the North Central Conference race, I would pick Eagle Grove over Clarion and Algona. Algona Is my second choice and Clarion third, although Clarion beat Algona, Huroboldt lost to Algona 28-H and almost beat Clarion, $o 1Jhtok_tte Clarion victory rousr"Twve been on a What is it?

Senior essay contest underway at HHS student at HHS Miss Elizabeth Nygaard has been nanuxi Co-ed correspondent for the 1966-67 school year, according to Miss Margaret Hauser, editor of Co-ed Magazine. Miss Nygaard, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Roy Nygaard of Llv- ermore. is a senior at Humboldt high. Her appointment was made by Mrs. James Swenson, home economics teacher at Humboldt. Selected for her qualities of leadership and her enthusiasm for home economics. Miss Nygaard »ill serve as junior advisor to the editors of Co-ed, a national magazine for teenage girts published by Scholastic Magazines, Inc. She will keep them informed of activities at Humboldt Community High School. She Is among more than 4,000 Co-ed correspondents throughout the United States and Canada. You're it Of Its many and profound desires, Its greatest is to write "The Students, Yes." (Hint: What man wrote "The People, Yes"?) Its last name Is a combination of two syllables, the former being found in abundance on beaches and the latter (a nickname) is a pesty insect. It was a very good lineman in football, filling the places of two ordinary linemen. It also has a sister in high school but there is little or no comparison in size. If you can't figure it out yet, here Is a final clue: If you tripled Its »*ight and subtracted 73 pounds, you still wouldn't be able to get from here to Fort Dodge as fast as Pete Hansen. Last week's It wasSeth Prlebe. by Nancy Fuller Senior students, under the direction of Mrs. Louis Hank, have recently finished reading and writing essays, , Eleven essays were read ami rvaFuate-l during an'essay unit.
