However, It Is hoped that the second semester will see fewer news representatives with occupational laryngitus, and that the student body will recover from paralysis of the brain and make the supreme sacrifice answer the news question. I say sacrifice because they will probably lose their friends and be an outcast of the class. But If we answered the news question just before lunch. . .! The students of Humboldt High School took the annual news test Friday, January 27, the third In a series of five such tests. All students are required to take the tests and their scores are recorded and the grade is added to their history record. Wildcbat Well, It's comforting to know that the school was at Its act* domic best Tuesday when It waft evaluated. Well, It's comfort- Ing to know It's been evaluated, anyway, Mr. Osorno says he has been too busy doing worthwhile things to do anything that would get him In Wlldcliat. Quoto Mr. Muller, "If anyone asks you guys for a pass, just tell them I sent you, because I'm a big man around here."

Mr. Christensen claims he skated all the way from Mr. Carter's house to his own — sometimes on his feet. Kodger Lee has a new best seller out - "How to Play In a Band Without Really Knowing How." We are very proud of our zealous students who would give up anything to listen to the seventh period debates, even study hall. Steve Stanford claims that since his Initials are S. S., he has changed Idealogies and is now an advocate of the Students for the Democratic Society. But he can't fool us — we know that today's ISMS are Capitalism, Confucianism, Communism, Fascism. and Steve Stan- fordism Thought for the week, "You can fool some of the people all of the time, and all of the people all of the time and all of the time some of the time and some of the time some of the people."

But if student participation in answering the news question is a fair gauge, then the school must be almost entirely populated by functional illiterates. The news question is asked just after the announcements-nobody-listens-to at the beginning of fourth period. It is usually taken from the front page of the Des Molnes Register which Is found in the library. The question isn't answered until the next day to enable most students to find out the answer via newspaper, radio television, or carrier pldgeon. Although It Is believed by some authorities that the answer to the question is known by many students, there has been little evidence to substanclate this theory. If it is answered at all, it Is by the same few, brave souls each time. Some students have classes during fourth period, so who wants the news question answered promptly? The longer it can be stalled, the less class there'll be. But alas! the suspense grows unbearable and at last some knowledgable person blurts out an answer and the proper one is given by the news representative, much to the relief of the teacher and the news representative. This poses another problem, for It would appear that to be a news representative, one must be very quiet-voiced and mumble a good deal, selected by being the winner of a class whispering contest. But the most important prerequisite for being news representative is to be a good sprinter, because he must lead the class to lunch. Perhaps if we answered the news question. Just before we went to lunch there would be nor* Wildcat ol the Week Humboldt't only undefeated vanity wresf/er, Marie Doggy, has oeen chosen Wildcat of fhe Week.

Full calendar scheduled for Humboldt high bands by Dave Watson The Humboldt High School bands have scheduled a full calendar for the upcoming months of February and March. The Stage Band will journey to Charles City Saturday, February 4, for a Stage Band Clinic.

On the following Monday, February 6, the entire Concert Band will travel to Webster City for the North Central Conference Band Festival. The four participating high schools include Algona, Webster City, Humboldt, and Eagle Grove.

Included in the Honor Band are 24-Btudents from Humboldt. February 14 and 15, the Stage Band, along with the Choraliers, will present the annual VoBa- Cho program at the Humboldt Junior High auditorium.

It is not a sophomore or senior, but don't jump to any conclusions without a good excuse. It always has a smile and a kind word for everyone; well, a smile, anyway. It heartily believes lunch tickets should not be sold after Monday morning because of the extreme inconvenience this causes the office staff. Last week's It was Jon Hart.

Student Council to handle HHS lost and found items Because of the amount of items turned into Lost and Found at the Humboldt Community High School, and because of the limitation of time and area, the HHS Student Council agreed to handle the department as a result of the council meeting held Tuesday, January 24. The council will set up a time and area for these items to be displayed to the students of HHS. During the meeting, other topics discussed included the evaluation of HHS by the NCA committee; name cards for seniors for which Faro Lajrd and Lynn Miller with take orders for in the library; and the addition of two new members, John Hadar and Rich Conlon, to the council due to the fourth period schedule change at the beginning of the new semester. April 20 was set as the date for the sophomores to select class rings. It was suggested to the council that a pop and ice cream machine be installed in the lunchroom as these types of installments are capable of raising a lot of money. The council members thought that there might be a tendancy for the pop and ice cream to take the place of the balanced lunch program already provided. Also discussed was the question of how to get the student body to take more Interest in the news question. A penalty was suggested for the students who dictinot loot for the answer, of having to do two the next day. and so on.
