Phylis McCIel- lan, Joan Mo ore, Pauline Soumas, Wilma Strand WIZARD WITH WORDS M. C. H. S. can be proud to have as fine a representative in the armed forces as Virgil Peder- sou. Virgil has Just completed a course in electrical engineering at Purdue university, and is ready for active duty. He has found navy life to be a fine training and says service in the armed forces is a "man-builder" of the firsi water. Those of us in M. C. H. S. who remember Virgil have a distinc' recollection of him as a brilliant student, a wizard with words, a fine musician, a good journalis' and an all-around good fellow Looking quite natty in his uniform, Virgil gave his many impressions of the navy to all of his old friends in a way that made them thirst for the real thing. Al were enraptured by his sharp descriptions of the desert to ' and from California and of his daily routine at Purdue. M. C. H. S. is exceedingly prom o£ Virgil's accomplishments, a she is o£ all her other sons am daughters. She wishes all succes and glory in their services fo the country. We want all boy, in service--soldiers, sailors, am marines--to know, "We are pull ing for you!" --Don Brewer OUR BUSINESS IS FILLING PRESCRIPTIONS PRESCRIPTION 9 East CUftp Phone State *riwr 180 W.

SPECIAL STUDENT RATES Phone 1286 iewis Tells of Visit to Washington Jerome Lewis, who was privil- ged to travel to Washington, D. :., during the Christmas holidays, old his journalism class of some if his experiences in the capital ity. Jerome visited - his mother, Jladys Anderson, who is em- Ioyed in Washington: He says, butter is a minus quantity as is aleo. Mother and I traveled to every part of the city before Christ- nas trying to find a box o£ candy, but failed; bus' drivers think noth- ng of leaving 100 passengers standing on a corner. I found myself carried right on to the bus by a mob when I had no intention of joarding the bus. To shop was an mpossibility because one could nol close enougli to a counter, or if one did clerks were too independent or weary to care to wait on him." Interesting buildings visited by Jerome were the Smithsonian Institute, the capitol building, anc the National Art gallery. He also visited an. ultra mocierr airport housing many bombardiers and large transports. Jerome gave a detailed accoun of his trip to George Washington' home in Mount Vernon. Some outstanding relics of Washington's time were the beautiful glassware and furniture, most of xvhich original including the bed tha Washington died on. Jerome als described the grounds at Moun Vernon and the tomb of Washin, ton. His journey both to and from Washington was interesting al though he had to sit up from her to Chicago because many "soldier thronged the train. He noted tha throughout the trip an eage friendliness prevailed among th soldiers.--S. R. COLLEGIATES WITHDRAW According to Dean S. L.

The assignment entailed a :reat deal of research in maga- ines and newspapers on the part if the girls, while the boys found amphleis from the recruiting sta- ion of great value to them. Aside from nursing, the ma- ority of girls favored the Wom- n's auxiliary ferrying squadron or WAFS, as they are commonly called, of the five divisions -- WAAC, WIRES, WAVES, SPARS, ' and WAFS. The themes questioned whether t is the $3,000 annual salary and provided quarters which has an appeal to the girls or if girls like Joys favor aviation. The WAFS are also known as :he "caterpillar" girls because they 'erry small jeep airplanes from factories to airports. Among their other duties which relieve men [or more active service are carrying mail and doing vital ground work. T\yice as many boys preferred service in the navy as those who preferred the army. Many preferred the navy hecause o£ the opportunities given to learn trades which will be of value to them after the war. Nearly all o£ them favored aviation because o£ the Martha Pauley Named Junior Editor in Chief for Term Leads Journal Class in Number of Inches in Cub Gazette Martha Pauley was named junior editor-in-chief o£ the Cub- Gazette for the rest of the year. Martha leads her journalism class with a total of more than 200 column inches printed in the Cub, while Marion Levinson, Wanda Wallace and Anne Huber exceed the 150 mark.

Miss Langemo has a Bachelor of Arts degree from St. Olaf college at Northfield, having majored in English and mathematics, and a master of arts degree from the University of Wisconsin, where she specialized in guidance while majoring in education. She was graduated from St. Olaf with "cum laude" honors. Her teaching experience was gained in the public schools of Minnesota and Wisconsin and for the past four years she has been supervisor of English and mathematics in the State Teachers college at Whitewater, Wis. During the present school year she has been teaching on a fellowship in the college of education at Madison.--L. E. rapid advancement afforded in that division. O£ the 49 branches o£ the navy, some which were more generally preferred by the boys, aside from aviation, were the marine corps and coast guards. Miss Elizabeth H. Graves, who assigned the project, expressed the more about his own United States through discussion at home and at s.chool on these various units and that the information is indelibly written upon the memory. Furthermore, additional literature in the future on these units will have a new appeal, she said. A. H., S. R. ployed at the Iowa Hardware Mu- Life Is Told by P^derson Virgil Pederson, Mason City high school graduate, now third class electrician in the U. S. navy, visited Miss Elizabeth H. Graves' room, the strings class and Miss ? rances Forster's French class Monday while he was home on cave before graduation at Purdue university Thursday. Virgil spoke to the three jroups. He stressed particularly the effect o£ newspapers on navy morale saying, "Letters do not ocme often, but the home newspaper comes daily.

Phone 2272 Robert Gildner Rides 18 Miles Each Day to Attend College Reading of the 18 mile journey which .Robert Gildner, former junior college student, makes each day in order to obtain a college education makes one wonder ii there are any students attending our high school or college who travel great distances to receive an education. If so, why not le! Cub reporters hear about it? Robert is enrolled as a junior in Upper Iowa university at Fayette. He lives on a farm near Randalia, from where he rides a bicycle nine miles to and from school each morning and night-a daily trip of 18 miles. He has done this for two years excep' when there has been too much snow. During the first semester of his freshman year, Robert attended the local junior college where he is remembered by his teachers as a very brilliant student At tha time he lived at Nora Springs. basis , it is 14 o'clock with us. Although we live in a regular building, we speak of it as a ship, calling the ship walls, bulkheads; windows, portholes; floors, decks; stairs, ladders. An average day is started by rising at 5:45, dressing lightly and running around the block, complete dressing, and going to chow (breakfast). Every day includes physical exercises and classes. Exams are given once a week. On Sunday, a sailor may go to church. We boys in service are, for the most part, just what we are in civilian life. Some improve." Explaining the significance of his uniform, Virgil called attention to the 13 buttons on his trousers which stand for the original 13 colonies. "The scarf is worn in memory of dead sailors. Five buttons, believed to be for five great admirals, are down the front of my coat. Three white stripes 011 the collar stand for three wnrs in which the navy was important. The two stars on the collar stand for two great admirals or for the two wars -- Revolutionary and War of 1812. When a sailor takes off his clothes, regulation requires Mm to leave them wrongside out.' 1 Virgil, being an electrician, has j a small ball on the left sleeve, symbolizing his division. Years Mrs. Wilbur J. Cline Joins Harding Staff A newcomer to the 1 Harding school faculty is Jlrs. Wilbur J. Cline, kindergarten teacher, replacing Miss Annabelle Woodward, who resigned. Mrs. Cline arrived in Mason City in November as a bride with her husband who recently replaced Howard T. Barker, as high school instructor in science. Mrs. Cline received her early education at Albia, and later attended Iowa State Teachers college where she majored in kindergarten primary education. She gained experience at Agassiz Elementary s c h o o l in Ottumwa where she taught kindergarten. Mrs. Cline is a member of the National Education association nnd is affiliated with the United Presbyterian church. The dines reside at 317 Seventh street northeast.--J. M. RED PEPPERS BY RAY A supreme test will confront the so far undefeated Mohawks when they meet undefeated Lindblom in a benefit game the 29th. Generally regarded as lops in the state, the Mohawks will gain greatly in prestige if they succeed in downing Lindblom's live. Nevertheless a defeat at tlve hands of. the Chicago boys would not seriously impair the Grimsley men's record in state circles. The fact that Lindblom was last year's public school champion in Chicago is indicative of the school's power on the hardwood court. Not only will the game be tops, but the benefit for which it is being played is one which all Mason Cilyaiis are interested in, and glad to support. "As good hosts to the Lindblom basketball squad as we were to their football squad" is our appeal. We salute--All nuking possible the Lindblom gme. The Citizens V i c t o r y committee. Judge Grimsley and tile squad all will have a real part in providing: Mason Cityans leaving for the armed forces a, scull gift. * * * Chan Welch's J. C. Trojans take the floor against the Ames navy Typhoons Saturday. In a previous meeting the sailors downed the locals 49-3!), but the advantage of the home court should prove a big factor in enabling the J. C.'s to even the count. A week ago the Trojans lost a heart breaker lo the Waldorf five 41-39 in an extra period contest . . . . Incidentally, that little scrap between Chan's Ford and a truck is all ironed out and everybody is happy--the cuts are healed too. * # ·# The switching of positions by Judge Grimsley didn't work out so badly after all. Jack Rees, starting his first game in the current season, performed well, proving his ability as a capable ball player. Holmen worked in well at a forward post, while Fats Day took over the center slot. Pee Wee Day's injured hand, which caused all this shifting, seems to be healing nicely and lie should see some action in the near future. 17 GIRLS GIVEN CERTIFICATES ON RED CROSS WORK Are First High School Students to Complete Home Nursing Course " 'They also s e r v e who only stand and wait'" is not a theme that can be used in these war times w h e n our country needs every pairs of hands," stated Mrs. Rob Roy Cerney to the high school body in an assembly planned by the home economics department to honor 17 girls who had completed a course in home nursing. She pointed out that external appearance means nothing unless one's inner feelings harbor a desire to serve such as was exemplified by the girls in (he taking of the course. As the girls received their certificates issued by the American Ued Cross, thoughtful observers realized how much thc-Eu girls can give as home nurses during iheir lifetime and how they, in turn, can help future generations to serve 'likewise, Mrs. Cerney declared. Joan Alsbury, Mary Angelides, Beverly Bohl, Patricia Caster, Glennis Christian, Verna Claus- scn, Billie Dougall, Milecn Gorman, Lila Hoyur, Betty Larson, Shirley Nelsen, Elaine Nelson, Naomi Pippert, Betty Russell, Laura Sanders, Beverly Wass and Norma Wolf are the first of their kind in Mason City high school, it was pointed out. Maxine Dillon, junior, dressed as a Red Cross nurse, sang the World war I song "Rose o£ No- Man's Land," symbolical of the American Red Cross nurse.
