"These few get great experience, but what about the other guys? "I don't know what to do about this," he admits. "We certainly won't start assigning lawyers to students b e f o r e court.

Blackman denies, however, that the Court is lenient with students who have lawyers. "The word has pretty well gotten around that if you have lawyer, you have a better chance of getting a suspended sentence. This is true, but it's only because in 99 out of 100 ases the kid who uses a lawyer really has a good excuse. When we get a real wise guy, someone who doesn't care about school rules at all, before court, we nail him. It doesn't matter if he has a lawyer or not. "Really, it's just that most of the kids are scared. Talking with a lawyer gives them confidence and can even help correct the problems. Then we give a suspended sentence. After all, getting rid of these problems is what we truly want to do." Most of the students who get suspended sentences don't appear after their first "visit" to court, according to Jaeger. "This is what really shows that the lawyer program is a purpose of the success. "The whole lawyer plan is to reduce violations and clear up students problems more easily," he concluded. Females Make Conquest At FW By JENNIE TOM A state of calamity has hit Flowing Wells?? Oh, no! It's only a contagious dose of Twirp Week! What other explanation can be given for all these girls who are dashing gallantly about opening doors, carrying books and escorting their favorite Caballeros to classes? And what's this? Girls helping boys with their coats, carrying their lunch trays, and even asking the fellows out on a date! No doubt about it! Twirp Week has struck on the Flowing Wells campus for March 7-12. During the week, the girls are expressing their appreciation for the courtesies they have re- Trump Takes Top Honors Catalina High School's weekly newspaper, The Trumpeteer, has received an All-American rating from the National Scholastic Press Association, one of the top three scholastic rating services in America. The All-American Award, the sixth straight for The Trump, is the highest honor rating given by NSPA _.id ' represents superior accomplishments. It is reserved for top publications. Papers were graded in 25 categories covering all areas of production from coverage to make-up. A point scale in each category rates the papers as poor, weak, fair, good, very good, excellent or superior. NSPA judges, professional newsmen and journalism educators awarded The Trump one superior (in news sources), 14 excellent and 10 very good ratings. The net total of 3,950 points equalled last year's all-time record for the paper. "A really fine job," commented one of the judges. "I don't think I've seen a better job by a paper its size." Advisor Resigns Felizardo Valencia, Rincon Spanish and Latin teacher, has resigned as the school's American Field Service Club advisor. Valencia, however, who has sponsored the club since its formation 8 years ago, will continue to work on plans for AFS week. March 14-18. The week's activities will include a student- faculty basketball game, a computer - programmed dance and the annual AFS assembly. Under Valencia's direction, the AFS Club has scored many firsts. In the club's initial year, it established the tradition of sponsoring two foreign students annually. In 1962-63, four students from Rincon were selected to participate in the Americans Abroad program. Only one other high school in the nation has eyer had 4 finalists chosen. During Valencia's years of sponsorship, Rincon has hosted 12 AFS students and has placed 12 Rangers abroad. The n e w AFS advisor has yet to be chos en. ceived during the year by extending them to the boys. Mr. and Miss Hi-Smile were elected during the noon hour on Monday by a toothpick ballot. A girl and a boy were chosen from each class by the Girls' League Council. Their pictures were taken secretly and the smiles of each were placed on a jar in front ul 'UK office. "Holy lollipop!" as Batman would exclaim, because the girls were really suffering on Tuesday with the observance of Mum Day. Every tune a girl failed to suppress her desire to speak to a boy outside of class, she had to give him a lollipop. Mr. Irresistible, the most lollipop-ridden fellow on campus, and also the most attractive, was selected and awarded with a prize. "Boy! Your feet are so nice and big!" and "My, but your ears are such a pretty blue!" were some of the compliments floating around campus in celebration of "Flatter Day" today. The girls-paid a compliment to every boy with whom they spoke while Big B's for Bad were sold to the boys, to be given to every violating female. Grannies and Grandpas, with the aid of their trustworthy eases, will limp around the campus tomorrow making the "Granny and Grandpa Day" a- very colorful and comical affair. Having hair arranged in a bun and topped with a perky hair bonnet or an abstract- looking bow, the girls will arrive in long or mid-leg length dresses complimented by other accessories such as rolled-up nylons, granny glasses and clomping boots. Warmed by their slightly tattered shawls, these charming little ladies will busy themselves with their knitting tools and will arm themselves with cooking utensils. Grandpas will follow the rather unconservative trend this year as they don big baggy pants, uniquely designed vests and suit coats, huge paper collars and more than likely "non- supporting" suspenders. Limping proudly about in their old boots, the old fellows will also J A ..__] "I _ _ ,, Jt «·«·· w A ..__ _ _ ,, J J i _ _ ^oi nmc ami luuu UCS, moth - eaten derby hats and will carry dangling chain watches. An amusing and vast variety of eager Daisy Maes and Little Abners will occupy the football field hi readiness for the Sadie Hawkins Day Race at 8 a.m. this Friday. With the sound of the gun, the mad chase will be on as the girls make a dashing attempt to capture their beaus. Girls, don't forget to bring matching patches to pin on the boy you catch so that he can be identified if he should get "lost." Prizes will be given for the best costumes. Switching; to' more .stylish garb, the girls will escort their beaux Saturday night to the Sweetheart Ball which is entitled "Happiness Is?" this year. Girls are in for a bargain! The price is $1.50 a couple in advance and $2 at the door. So be sure to get tickets early in the bookstore and save 50 cents. Highlighting the semi - formal dance, which wiii be held in ihe Multi - purpose building from 811:30 p.m., is the crowning of the Bachelor King, the most elusive guy on campus. Special rules have been provided for the girls on Saturday. They must pick up their dates, talk to his parents and make sure that he is home on tune. It is the girl's own prerogative to take the boy out to dinner but she is obligated to pay all bills and to escort him to the door after the date is over. Girls unite! Here's your chance to show the boys how they should behave all year! Let's make the most of it!

Martin Ochotorena will be state historian, and Janet Clayton is state parliamentarian. . Contests are offered for all DECA chapters in advertising, job interviewing, merchandising, information, public speaking, sales presentation and studies in marketing. The state DECA Sweetheart also will be chosen at this convention. This year Julie Ochotorena will represent Pueblo in the Sweetheart contest. Sponsor of the DECA club at Pueblo, John Messer, said he has high hopes for this year's creative marketing project. It consists of a "Consumer Analysis of the Two Major Shopping Centers in the Pueblo High Trading Area." A questionnaire was made up SS Junior Tells Of Mexican Life Strange customs and ideas are greeted eagerly by Sunnyside junior Gail Woolf in her many travels through and outside the United States. . Gail recently returned to the United States after a four-month stay in a small village outside San'Luis Potosi, Mexico. Sunnyside is the 17th school she has attended. Gail traveled with her family to Mexico where her father, an author, might do work on his newest book. Gail has decided after traveling to all the various places that she has in her life, that Popular Poetry Prevalent At PV By MARGIE FISHER Although the great poems of Shakespeare, Milton and Chaucer can never be forgotten by Palo Verde's literates, a new generation of poets is gaming respect and popularity among the students. This "new generation" of lyric writers comes from the student body itself. The neo-poets write in various styles ranging from free verse to the expressionless Dada style. Others have tried their hand at a strict form, such as the sonnet or the f o u r - l i n e Haiku. Many of the poets have difficulty" getting interested in the works of the Old Masters emphasized in then- English classes, and find more pleasure in writing their own poetry. Some lyrics in writers compose secrecy, using their their poems only as an outlet for pent-up emotions. "I just don't feel that anyone would be interested in my SSHS Names Blue Diablo At a recent combined meeting of Sunnyside's Quill and Scroll Chapter and English Club, the group decided on a name for the new literary magazine: "Blue Diablo." Staff members chosen include Lee Lewis and Rhodney Lauffer, managing editors; Pat Void, layout editor; Jesse Jensen, art editor; Cende Courtney, N o r a Courtney, and Ed Bukoski, art assistants; Aida Arriaga and T.lcyd Fickett, distribution; and Aida Arriaga, secretary. poems; they're just for my pleasure and enjoyment," said senior Sheryl Sparkman. There are, however some who are more vociferous about their poetry, and will spout off their philisophic lines to anyone willing to listen. The right atmosphere for such "poetry spouting" is necessary for the full effect of the poet's deeply provoking words. "Right atmosphere" includes a background of soft classical music, a minimum of light and two brimming cups of black coffee to sip between recitations. A dripping candle, some Oriental incense and a guitar are optional, but improve the atmosphere immensely. The poets have different reasons for writing, and usually write when "something comes into their heads." Senior Recia Piper said she writes her poetry when she "feels like it," using rhyme or FW Honor Society Adds 26 Members Traditional candlelight ceremonies initiated 26 qualified juniors and seniors into the Flowing Wells chapter of the National Honor Society Feb. 28. Seniors initiated were Guy Quisenberry, Karen Spence, Janice Stillwell, Val Vette, Carolyn Warskow and Marilyn Warskow. Juniors initiated were Robert Anderson, Gladys Arnold, Raquel Arnold, Ann Deason and John Eichelberger. Lee Mike Gardner, Nancy Gates, Margaret Hatcher, Linda Healy, Bill Hobson and John Howard also became members of the Honor Society. Terry Langen, Joyce Linn, Truda Marrs, Scott Moss, Kathy Nichols, Deanna Piatt, Butch Slawson and Jennie Tom were other juniors honored. Current Honor Society members welcomed the initiates with traditional speeches on ideals of the Society. Michael Kania, NHS president, s p o k e on achievement; Sherry Martin, character; Peggy Black, leader- ship; Sandy Scariano, scholarship; and Julie Rawles, service. Honor Society members are chosen by a faculty-administration committee from the top 15 per cent of their class. Selection is based upon the ideals of scholarship, character, service, and leadership. PV Holds Elections Final elections for student body officers will be held at Palo Verde this week. Campaign speeches were given by officer candidates yesterday in regularly scheduled assemblies. The candidates for elections are Bruce Bouchard and Thad Allen, president; Candy Linehart and Keating Ackerly, vice- president; Missie Miller and Connie Corcoran, recording secretary, and Judy Downy and Carole West, corresponding secretary. free verse, depending on her mood. Bill Kayenaugh, also a senior, stated this about his poetry, "I write when the thought comes to me. Sometimes I recite my poems to my girlfriend; that's who they're mostly for." Ottavio Ranchi, Palo Verde's foreign exchange student, admits he writes poetry, but only in Italian. "I write when I am very sad," commented Ottavio, "or when I am very glad." Corky Evans, Ottavio's American brother, also writes a great deal of poetry. He writes late at night, which he claims is the best tune for inspiration. Judy Ritter, a PV coed, said she writes poetry because, "it gives me a means of expressing my thoughts and feelings. I write about people and how life affects them." She agrees with Corky that the night is the best time for writing because "everything is so peaceful." "I write poetry to make fun of things, l i k e politics. My poems are usually just for myself," commented senior Paul Sunley about his lighter lyrical attempts. A few of the poetry writers get frustrated because they can't express their enough. i d e a s clearly For example, Stuart Hoar, a PV poet, complained, "I try to write when I get a brilliant idea, but I can't express my ideas clearly in a poem. Usually, I leave the work unfinished." The popularity in poetry writing will undoubtedly increase, even though it may be in secrecy. Who knows? A hundred years from now, some historian will uncover some great undiscovered poetry, which may date back to the Popular Poetry Period of Palo Verde. she would like to return to Mexico and perhaps stay there. While in Mexico, the Woolfs lived hi a nine-room adobe house which had few of the "necessities" that a modern American would expect. Each day water was brought to the Woolf household by a small Mexican boy. The water was carried in cans from the nearby village church. All drinking water was bought in bottles in San Luis. There was no refrigeration in the house, so fresh meat had to be bought each day in the village market. "Once a week during the first month someone was sick from the new diet," commented Gail. The difference in food quality and content is hard to adjust to at first One peculiar c u s t o m the Woolfs encountered was that of the families sweeping the dirt from the sidewalk and road in front of their houses every morning. "We were usually the last to do this chore," said Gail "and after a while we started doing it every other day instead of daily." Gail did not miss out' on schooling while in Mexico. In her brief stay there before coming to Sunnyside, G a i l was tutored privately by her father, since her Spanish was not fluent enough for her to go to the Mexican school. by the DECA class and distributed at Southgate and Pueblo Plaza to shoppers. Questions such as: "How often do you shop at this shopping center?" and "Where do you see or hear the advertising about shopping centers?" appeared on the ques- tionaire. Last year Pueblo took state honors and went to the national DECA convention. Approximately 1,300 students are expected to attend this year's DECA convention. About 35 DECA club chapters located in Arizona will be represented at the convention. Fashion Cart -Citizen Pbcto By BUI Hopkini Janet Browning, president of Jacome's Hi Board, stands in front of the 1 "Boutique a la Carte." The cart is the project of the Hi Board and it is their responsibility to maintain its appearance and stock. They redecorate it every two or three weeks. Charm Class Given By KAREN PETERSON A small wagon stocked with a potpourri of gifts is the work of the girls on Jacome's Hi Board, named The wagon, rightfully the "Boutique a la Carte," is on display in t h e Miss J Shop. Originally it was to be a Christmas project, bui the girls enjoyed it so much that it has now become a part of the junior department. Since the wagon was begun by the Hi Board, it is their responsibility. They must see that it is properly stocked and displayed correctly. Inventory is Pueblo Stages 'Bad Seed' "Rhoda, were you with the little boy when he was on the wharf, just before he drowned?" This is the question put to little Rhoda Penmark by her mother in the play "The Bad Seed" to be presented on March 14, 15, 17, 16 at Pueblo High School. The question was prompted by the mysterious drowning of a classmate of Rhoda's at a class picnic. Rhoda's mother has begun to have misgivings about her daughter even though she is loved and respected by all adults. Rhoda, played by Linda Lea, had wanted the penmanship award that the drowned boy had won, and had had a tantrum in front of her mother at the unfairness of the choice. The child to receive the award was picked by all the classmates, and Rhoda's mother, played by Gloria Schmeling, had noticed that Rhoda had never had anyone to play with, and wonders whe- ther her daughter is not strange in this respect also. Because Rhoda is so charming, sweet, full of old fashioned graces and the perfect lady to growuups, her mother decides to let the matter of the drowning go and let Rhoda get over the terrible tragedy. When the girl shows absolutely no signs of having been affected by the occurrence, Mrs. Penmark again begins to wonder. As the evil mood of the play increases, so does the mystery. The play was adapted by Maxwell Anderson from a novel by William March. It will be presented in the Little Theater at PHS, and will be directed by Don Caslow. Other members of the cast include Mark Topper, Leslie Cooper, Terry Mikel, Mark Headly, Lillian Villaescusa, Rafaela Santa Cruz, David Best, and Robert Clifton. taken to see what should or shouldn't be replaced. The Hi Board is made up of two girls from each high school. They are Palo Verde: Linda Herman, Shirley Sherwood; Tucson High: Doreen Camacho, Cheryl Parks; Amphitheater: Annette Tucker, Janet Browning. Rincon: Ellen Moret, Mary Pacheco; Pueblo: Carla Hager, Linda Singleton; Catalina: Cindy Brady, Susan Shetter; Salpointe: Judy McCarthy, Julie Stewart; Flowing Wells: Celeste Beckham, Patti Bennett; Sunnyside: Janice Norris, Sue Scott; and Villa Carondelet: Nora Booth. Twice a year, the store, along with Seventeen Magazine, offers charm classes. These classes are open to any high school Book Fair Successful At Amplii Amphitheater's Book Fair "turned out to be very successful" according to Jeff Fisher, president of National H o n o r Society. The Fair made over $100 and will use the money for two purposes. Half will go for the annual scholarship given to a worthy student in the junior class. The rest will go for setting up a Social Studies Book Fair. During the past week, Amphi students have had the opportunity to purchase a variety of books displayed at the Book Fair. Each English class was given a scheduled length of time to attend the fair. One junior English class raised enough money to purchase a box of books for use in the class. firl and are held an hour each Jaturday for seven weeks. In the class, the girls are taught the fundamentals of make-up, modelling, hair care and poise. In the spring any girl who has completed the charm classes may try out for the fashion board. The girls are judged on appearance, poise and model- ling ability. Seventeen Magazine feels that too little emphasis is placed on the fashion careers such as buying and merchandising. Therefore, the Hi Board is also taught how to take inventory, stock, and sell merchandise. They also obtain experience in fashion coordination and commentary. The Hi Board and the charm classes are taught by Miss Gail Jaffe, fashion coordinator for the store. UNHAPPY with your hair? Good news for teen-age girls with hair style problems.
