Projects Undertaken As one enters the metal work department at Ottawa High School, located in the junior high building, a scene of bustling activity meets one's gave. Lee Olm- slcad, the teacher in charge of mclalworking, explained the courses available to students. In the freshman year a general shop course may be taken which includes three twelve-week periods of mctalwork, drafting, and woodworking. This is more or less an exploratory course for beginning students. After n person selects which course met alwork, drafting, or woodworking is bcsl for him, a student takes Metal J, a more detailed course in his mnjor field. Metal II, for juniors and seniors only, is more technical and farther advanced and gives the student more experience in his chosen area. Projects niny be undertaken by any student taking Metal I or 11. Some of the most popular projects are bench grinders, drill presses, drill press vices, small power hacksaws, mini-bikes and go-carls. One student this ye;ir is even making an aluminum boat. The equipment used for various projects arc arc welders, hcliarc welders, oxyncelylcnc wcl dcrs, and materials in the machine shop. The advanced class takes frequent field trips, in order to get some idea of working industry. This year the students visited Sheffield Steel Co. and Dclco Battery Co, in Olalhc. Lcc Olmstoad explained I h c field trips by saying, "Regardless of whether the student plans lo altend college or nol, Ihcso Irips may give him some idea of whnl he would like lo pursue in Ihe future."

CLOSE YOUR EYES, I'M COMIN' THROUGH! - Rosie Lister, senior nnd member of the OHS journalism staff, enjoys swinging as she gathers information for the Ottawa Herald on a reported nudist colqny southeast of Ottawa. Rumor Of Nudist Camp Causes Stir A strenuous hike proved fruitless today for three reporters in scorch of a rumored nudist camp. The cnmp, located three miles cast nnd one mile south of the Rock Creek school house, and just south of the low-water bridge crossing Rock Creek is supposedly a gathering place solely for the use of teen-agers. A Irnil, beginning at the low- water bridge, is worn bare of gross, and follows the creek bank' closely. After a short distance, a crossing of rocks and logs provides entrance into a weed-covered area where the trail' lakes up again. Another crossing and the bordering creek bank notched with small stairs arc tell-tale signs of the campers. Large trees .spanning the gaps from bank to bank provide sturdy if not attractive foot bridges, in various -places around the area. Two signs were rumored to be firmly planted in the ground near the campfire. Although remains of the campfire were found, the signs were not. One was to have been a name marker, saying, "God's Haven," the other merely a warning which stated, "No clothes past this point." The sunbathers apparently took the signs with them after the last meeting, leaving bare-fooed, but not bare-handed. A large pulley, consisting of heavy rope and cables, is rigged with a swing seat, for transportation purposes across the creek at one point. Although no actual signs of nudist sunbathers were found in the area, a group of campers has definitely been using the area for some purpose. Local Markets' Wheat $2.07 Soybeans $2.38 Ear corn 1.

Rhody's Feasts Surpass Reds' EDITORS NOTE: Stanley Johnson, veteran AP correspondent, watched Ihe Soviet Union parade ils military might through Moscow's Red Square on May 1 on six different occasions. Today he was home watching another kind of May Day rile—Rhode Island version. By STANLEY JOHNSON PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP)-Mil lions participated in May Day activities in Moscow today where Ihe annual parade was held in Red Square. Here in Rhode Island, where the day is observed in another way, there were no parades but plenty of food, Soviet Premier Khrushchev got Fidel Cnslro for May Day; Rhode Islanders got clamcakes. "Litlle Rhocly" is the nation's last stronghold of medieval May Day traditions. But oldsters complained today that even here the ancient customs are dying. There were May Day breakfasts but few May baskets hanging from doorknobs. This exiled Rhode Islander came homo to observe May Day after spending six May Days watching, the masses in Red Square. The Yankees women had been busy baking pies and doughnuts and lights were on early in many church and community kitchens throughout the stale. The fragrance of fresh-baking rolls and brewing coffee mingled with the apple blossoms and the sweetness of May. Hungry May-crs streamed toward the long, laden tables. When I was a 'little boy, we made May baskets of boxes and crepe paper. Then we popped in presents—often only a candy bar —and sneaked off at dawn to hang them on the dporknobs of our best girls' homes before the neighbors were awake. Girls, of course, competed to see who got the most. Who "hung" a basket on whom was supposed to be a deep, dark- secret. But it usually didn't take juvenile detectives long to find out. While these capers were going on, the grownups were heading for the May breakfast. These feasts made Kremlin ban quets look like shoddy ways to eel ebrate "The May" as we called it Clamcakes were usually th< main attraction—cruellers mad< with clam juice and bits of clam Of course there were fruit juices all kinds of cereals, bacon, saus age, eggs, pancakes—especially Rhode Island's own Johnnycakef made with waterground cornmeal Pies, of course and doughnuts o all descriptions. Profits went to the sponsoring organizations. Hospital Notes Admissions Haltie McCune, Cedar House nursing home; Oscar W. Parks Pomona; Roy W.

Snowy Days Still In May By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Cool, snowy, rainy and windy weather chilled and dampened the debut of the merry month of May today in areas from the Midwest into New York State. Snow fell in cold air through the western lower Great Lakes region southward through West Virginia and in western New York. One to three inches of snow was on the ground in areas east of Cleveland to the Pennsylvania border. Gusty winds up to 50 m.p.h. swept some of the region. Two persons were killed in traffic accidents on snow-covered highways in Ohio. Snow amounts measured up to three inches in parts of Michigan and two inches in Indiana, with lighter amounts in other areas. The three-inch cover in Grand Rapids, Mich., was the heaviest on record for the date. Rain and showers sprinkled areas in eastern New York and Pennsylvania eastward. Freezing weather spread across the Great Lakes region as strong northwesterly winds fanned cold air from Canada into the north central region. Temperatures generally were in the 20s and 30s. One of the low marks was 24 in Marquette, Mich. Some of the cool air dipped southward into Kentucky, with the mercury dropping to near freezing in Louisville.
