12 - Fairbanks Daily News-Miner, Friday, February 12, 7965 Don't Miss Lathrop's "Arctic Capers"! SHOWBOAT--Showboat '65 is the theme of tonight's Arctic Capers. Many acts and musical groups are centered around this theme. Seen here are members of Lathrop's choir, which takes an important role in the annual talent show. The "capers" should prove enjoyable to all, so why not come? --News-Miner stall Photo ANNOUNCING ARCTIC CAPERS - Now hear this! Arctic Capers will be held tonight and tomorrow night in the Hering Auditorium at 8 p.m. The two trumpeters, from left, Steve Reilly and Dave Kuhns, seem to be heralding the event. Admission is one dollar and proceeds go into the senior scholarship fund. LATHROP TALENT - This is one of the numerous acts to perform in Arctic Capers tonight and tomorrow night. The two performances should prove to be full of fun. frolic, and talent. Other acts include dancing girls (and boys), singing groups, skits, readings and other talents found in Lathrop's student body. The Upper Limits: A Place to Go Will the "Upper Limits" Young Adults Club last, or will it close due to lack of support and public apathy? . . . This is a question that only you can answer. First, it might be wise to determine whether or not the Upper Limits is a place worthy of support, and a decent place for local teenagers to gather on weekend nights for dancing. The Upper Limits was intended to be just a place. Much effort and money was spent in remodeling it so as to give the teenagers of Fairbanks a club they could be proud of . . . one that had a built-in atmosphere and decor, so as to be pleasing to young adults. In short, a club designed exclusively for the youth of the community. Unfortunately, a few difficulties were experienced in the first few weeks of operation that have given the club a "bad" name with many o:: the parents of the community. Many rumors were spread about the club, mostly unjustified and in some cases, vicious. In many cases, the parents of teenagers attending the club, or thinking of attending it, stopped their children from doing so without even taking the time to check with the police department or youth and adult authorities as to the validity of these rumors. Only a few parents have been interested enough to even come to the club and see for themselves just what does go on. Parents and interested adults are invited to visit the Upper Limits at any time during the open hours, which are 7:30 to 11:30 p.m. on Friday and Saturday nights, so as to have an opportunity to form their opinions on fact and not on rumor. If you are unable to make it to this club, why not check with the police department and ask them what they think of the Upper Limits. The Upper Limits has the support and backing of the' police department and the Youth and Adult Authority only because the management of the club has cooperated with them in every way possible and because they realize that the Upper Limits is trying as best it can to make itself worthy of that support. A few weeks after this establishment opened, it came to the attention of the management that a few of the young people attending the club were doing so in order to contact oher teenagers and sell them what are commonly called "pep pills." Some of this' traffic did take place at the Upper Limits. As soon as it became known by the management, they began working with the police to eliminate it and try and find out the source of these pills. Unfortunately, word spread fast by way of the young people who were attending the club. Word got out to their parents and many adults perpetuated these rumors that started to circulating in the community, many of which had the Upper Limits selling these pills across the counter, along with soft drinks . . . . and worse! The actual part that the owners and managers of the Upper Limits have played in this unfortunate incident has been completely twisted around by these rumors and consequently the attendance at the club has dropped considerably. The club has been a victim of misinformation concerning this pill traffic and it's time the public knows the truth. If the club is to be condemned, let it be for its faults and not because of an incident that could have taken place anywhere, and that became completely exaggerated by rumors and lack of true facts. In spite of the loss of many of the Upper Limits' customers,- the rules have not been relaxed. Some of the rules are as follows: 1. Curfews must be observed by the members. 2. No alcoholic beverages allowed. 3. No member may leave the building and then return, except in emergencies. 4. No military personnel allowed. (Military dependents welcome). 5. No grade school or junior high students allowed when there are older students present. The advisability of following these rules is self-evident. If the Upper Limits is to stay open, it must have the support of the young adults of this community. Do YOU want it to stay open? That is the question. It's .up to you to determine the future of the Upper Limits. Decide carefully . . . it has been Fairbank's first young adults club! . . . it may be its last. Main NEWS VIEWS Eagles Win Title The Main Eagles won the local junior high basketball conference last week with a final record of 11 wins and one loss. The final game was played with Eielson on Friday. In the last quarter Eielson was ahead 26 to 25.

Last Friday Miss Brookin's social studies class held an informal mock constitutional convention of the early colonies. Fourteen students of 8-B 1 acted as representatives. The students who participated were: Cathy Bishop, Judy Winter, Ricky Hoitt, Patty Trew, Ben Delanay, Mike Grant, Susan Evans, Margie Searcey, Janis Saario, Billy Magoffin, Laureen Crackle, Rosie Truett, Claudia Christiansen, and David Seeliger. Richard Green presided as chairman. The main issues brought up and debated were the three most important compromises of the convention. They had to do with tariffs on foreign and interstate trade, and the counting of slaves in the census. Another proposal was the plan for a stronger or weaker central government brought up by New Jersey and Virginia. --By Susan Evans and Tanis Saario Main Girl Wins Contest Main 8th grader Pamela Galloway was recently named the city winner of the "Why I Am Proud to Be an American" essay contest.

GAA Engrossed inCage Tourney Though GAA activities were scarce the beginning of the new year due to cold weather, the girls are now engrossed in a competitive basketball tournament. There are 12 teams for this round and the captains are girls famed for their basketball abilities including: Jan Mitchell, Jane Haycraft, Linda Triggs, Virginia Vanderbilt, Jenny Cook, Jenny King, Mary Ann Charlesen, Wendy Warren, Bonnie Bruce, Pat Scanlan, and Margaret Cox. So far there have been two games played at night and four a week but there are rumors that GAA may get the gym three nights a week, thus speeding up play. All girls are urged to turn out and support their team on the road to victory. A business meeting was held on Jan. 21. The agenda included discussion of upcoming events, swimming, skating, trampoling, and playdays. A playday is scheduled for the | near future, so all girls should keep in touch with the GAA bulletin board in the main hall. Hunter School News Local Debate Teams Meet, Lathrop Wins Monroe and Lathrop clashed in the first debate of the year between the two schools.

Lalhrop Choir Forges Ahead Having finished with "Amahl and the Night Visitors," the operetta which was given just before Christmas, the Lathrop High School concert choir is forging ahead with many new I ideas in the field of vocal music. In the coming months, the members must prepare many songs, to be used at several different performances.

Editor The new year has arrived and along with it comes a new look in lips -- a glossy sheen finish. How do you accomplish this, you say? Well Max Factor has answered that question with it's newest addition to lip fashion called "Lip-Gloss" -- it glides on just like lipstick, but adds shine instead of color. Besides achieving a sheen, Lip Gloss also helps to moisturize and super- protect lips, making them stay smoother, longer. Have you got a shade of lip- stkk that matches all of your ensembles? You do if you have "Glissando" by Du Barry. Glissando is a mad mix of separate colors that merge, converge and blend all into one to give you a "never-before" look in lipstick. Try it! Let's play dangerously -let's go for Baroque (baroke). Max Factor has gone on a rage for beige, with Baroque Beige and a bare uninhibited Coco Baroque, the shade of pure cocoa. With colors like these, every girl wins the game. For those who wish a subtle, frosted effect over iips, Faberge has a delicious sounding covering called Pistachio Lip Glaze. Over your regular shade of lipstick, Pistachio gives a muted look to lips. Under a darker shade, it tones down, a useful lipstick accessory. Do you have a streak of wildness in you, will you try something new just for the fun of it? If so, you must try Tussy's "Golden Wonder." Tussy has molded a second color into the lipstick to create a built-in lip- feet is gr-r-r-reat! liner. Now when you apply your This year lips have never had lipstick, you outline your lips so much publicity -- so get on simultaneously giving you a the "stick" and enlarge your snarling "tiger" look.
