PAGE SIX ftti MALVfeft^f LfcAfrfeft, MALVEftiMdWA, MARCH 6. 1934 EMAITCHESS ——.... fcffraPJ^M gtLIMtftltfcfr tftGf SCtfOOL Editor Calls for Live New* feature* ] Outside of a few faint rumblings there have been very few signs of the usually quite apparent Junior-senior class war. (Probably the Juniors realize they don't have a chance). Tbe class wars hate no appeal whatever for the teachers (qneer, isn't ttf) but Incidentally they make tbe most exciting news in the history of school papers. Even the water tower has suffered no attacks as yet and of course t wonld be the last one In the world to start anything like that again but it does add unbelievably to the interest of Em- attchess. The year is not over though. Still, from the news writer's standpoint I wish something a little different could be accomplished this year, something more spectacular and preferably not Quite so dangerous. Any contributions of the student body will be given close attention and will be greatly appreciated. Poems written for classes or especially Interesting and brief themes or any example of unusual talent will be received with open arms. If you are too modest to reveal your name perhaps you could drop It in tho "Heart Sisters' " malt box and then come and tell us.

Faye Hurst has Fortune Teller Appears to Tell All About Game Through one of our energetic pep leaders, Jean Davis, a very entertaining meeting was held last Friday afternoon. Edith Bell came before the assembly dressed as a gypsy fortune teller with enough red paint and handkerchiefs to be mistaken for a fire chief; In fact she could have easily flagged a through train.

Fourth Grade Pupils Give Demonstration of Reading One day last week the normal training girls had three pupils from the fourth grade who read them stories. These stories were made about a picture. Each had very good sentence structure and originality. Those people who read their stories were: Babs Randerson, Malcolm Campbell, and John Slothower. The girls appreciate these stories very much and commented on the fine work ot these pupils. First Grade The past week the first graders have been painting different snow pictures. The desire for the return of spring is emphasized by decorations (Hey have made for their room, They will start studying in their new primer next week and they hope everyone will be back in school to start with them as there have been a large number absent. Among those absent, Danny Zanders and Grace Cardwell have been out the longest and they hopo to have them back in school by Monday. Eighth Grade In arithmetic eighth graders are finding tho square root of a number. It was rather difficult at and still is for some. The poem, "Snow Bound," is the main topic of Interest. Jt was quite appropriate the first part of last week. Junior Robinson really possesses great knowledge. If be does not know a definition he makes one up. Mr. Dyke: "Junior, what is the difference between a plate and a bucket?" Junior: "A great big hole." How One Man Lost 22 Pounds Mr. Herman Ruukls of Detroit BIH y «, IUU11UK writes: "A few Uaes of thanks back In school fr<w» a rbeuuwtlsw s^Serer—My E V «rvn«r»«' i»» , A , ftrst battle of Kruwbeft Salu took wn 7,7 rByt ?,i * *»*«•«•* fo tne *U ol tUe aches au4 SWftlUni* out f orW •*«** c «» 1 ^. gacn uemjn o4 wy loin**—with my ftrs* tot* *», *<"**"* *> that bi« »We will tie i went ou a dlat aud lost fifl win. , tle 4 went an a diet a Bound* and now feel U»t e a To lo«u fat safely tako out halt tetfBW " - "it*.* mil »t «Ulckly , they also listed their professions. .

They were given a hearty welcome by the grade students who showered them wltb sticks and atones and bits of "Irish confetti." success t had seen in ages. Very dramatic. Seats should have sold Tor $3.30 or $4.30." Edith Bell: "it made you for:et your troubles and have a good laugh." Frances Dunn: "I thought It was very exuberating!" Kathryn Swain: "The names were very appropriate considering the people in It.' S OMETHING AfiOUT SOMETHING It seems that the aged tradition of planting the class flat atop the water tower has Matty b*en dropped by this year's BTS&- ior class. Is it Just because we most be different, because ire haven't the spirit of because we can't afford the flags? What do yoa think? (1 can't), * t * * Mr. Hertt has suddenly become very ambitions. He et*n lets the V. S. History class outline every day's assignment besides allowing us to write the s;h- swers to the questions following each chapter! Would an orange change yonr mind, dear teacher? * « * * A new plan for law and order Sophomore News After a week of being on their best behavior the sophomores again blossom out. In English they have been reading plays and writing business letters. The other day in history class Mr. Hert* noticed Mac Jr. looking as if he were in deep thought (for once) and asked him what the matter was: Mac: "What keeps us on the earth when we are upside down?" Mr. Hertz: "The law of gravitation." Mac: "Yes, but how did they stick on earth before that law was passed?" Next week brings six weeks tests again and there Is much wondering as to what grades will result. Miss Conboy asked the girls to have a white dress for glee club so Delpha went to the store and asked for a dress to wear for Glee Club. Tbe polite clerk asked: "How large is your glee club, madam?" has been Introduced by Miss Walker. Last week "onr" plan was allowed to be applied; this week "Miss Walker's Plan" was used. Is this a permanent routine or is "our" plan to be cast aside? Next week should be onr week. We like this schedule, Miss Walker. Do you? * * » * A rising rivlary between the Juniors and seniors Is evident. First was the divided opinion on class rings — we still maintain ours are the best looking, and besides, we paid approximately 23c more for ours. Then there Is the coming Inter-' class tournament and we Intend winning that! Like our spirit? We like yours, too, Juniors. We Were once Juniors, too. HENDERSON S«t«ttn*f i Wall F*rtli ftho*d*t Last Fred Kftotdef and Rnby San** mers Were Married tftst Wednesday. Miss Summers is tbe daughter of Mr. and Mrs. tra BmMmert and Mf. Rhoadet has Worked in this eotam.ttnlty fof some time. Beth are fine yoang people. They will lite on tbe fafia of Mrs. Miles Stephens sooth ot town. Their friends wish them a happy married life. Home Ee Class to Display Finished Project in Stores The Home EC girls have enjoyed the completion of their doll dresses the past week. These will be displayed at one of the Malvern stores and. will be Judged to find who has made the best. Ribbons for first, second and third prizes are to be given. The contest will be a close one as the dresses are all well constructed and nice looking. They have also been writing the outlines of their first project. The girls have all found the clothing unit very 'interesting and are anxious to start making clothes for themselves. HEART SISTER CLUB CREATES NEW FRIENDSHIPS AMONG GIRL RESERVES Have you received a letterfand many new friendships are from your Heart Sister? What's being formed. The post office is that — you haven't heard about U? Well then we'll explain. In Girl Reserves meeting Wednesday each girl drew a name. Then she was to write a letter to this girl and sign her name "Heart Sister." When this girl writes back she addresses her letter to the minor of herself. This way each girl will receive two letters and must write two letters. The girls are very much interested SNOOPY SEZ Thisa and Tiiata A. little Sheik of the senior class has been writing to a girl la Macedonia. Teh! Teh! And only the other day we thought he was mourning over a recent heart-break with a P. J, gir). Jamie, are you being a good boy? Better watch your step, ole boy! !>im*Wit, who never speaks good of any car other than a Chevie tried to tell us they had a new De Soto. He didn't mean It — just a, slip of the tongue; but was he mortified! And now I think VU take the editor's suggestion that a short article Is satisfying because it takes up less space and leaves more room for paid advertising. Put wait! just one more thing. Who was the girl who rec'd a letter addressed to Mrs. Pick Hyde and actually had the crust to open it? Of course you all know. Third Grade pupils have been abaent from school because of colds. We are hoping by nest week everyone will be feeling well enough to be ack in school. Bvwryowe is interested in tne following yupils received 100% In spelling for the Qujeler.

Could anyone tell who wrote the charming letter containing the half stick of gum? By the way, how about starting a "Heart Brother" club? Fifth Grade In connection with the study of Italy the fifth grade is read* ing a story, "Grandmother's Trip to Naples," written by a lady who has traveled In foreign lands and writes true stories about them for American children. This week's topic in hygiene has been the brain. There has been so much to learn and so many new words that an outline of the chapter was put in the notebooks before the weekly tests. The fifth grade is now engaged In a campaign for quieter passing through the halls. Freshman News This week the English I classes traded teachers for a short period of about two weeks. Miss Riddle's class is taking the story of Silas Marner. Miss Scbalkle's class will study the Lady of the Lake. The general science class has been-, very ^Interesting. Lorance Lisle, Bob Wilson and Jim Beckwith have been demonstrating physics experiments. One day the class was given quite a shock by one of the electrical machines. Seventh Grade Thursday the seventh and eighth grades played tbe sixth in a game of basketball, the sixth grade winning. In English they gave descriptions of lost and found articles in addition to studying the positive, comparative and superlative degrees of adjectives. Arithmetic has been a review of past work. The pupils are sorry to lose their classmate, Bertha Brenning who moved farther from town. Doris Ireland returned to school after being ill for a few days. Sixth Grade The class has been working for the Palmer Method awards. All but IS of the class received them. Sixth graders are glad to have DorJs Gugeler and Delbert Davis back after their absence from school.
