Joan Moore, Pauline Soumas, Wllrna Strand "No Parking" Signs Glares Uselessly Yellow "No Parking" signs, prominently stationed at all curbs surrounding the high school build; ing, may now follow the path of all good metal and be consigned to the city scrap drive for immediate war use. For the 'duration th.ese signs glare at us and present a somewhat ludicrous situation. They are now utterly useless because high school and college students as well as teachers are doing very little driving. We loyal Americans have the true spirit for we brave the, cold weather by walking to school or crowding into a well- filled bus. One year ago approximately 75 cars could be seen parked along the curbs opposite the high school and in the alley by the building, but on Jan. 20, 1943, only six cars were seen near the building. Janitors say that is an average daily showing. "Share-the-ride" plan is in evidence among students. The few parked cars are, for the most part, from the country. When cars once more surround old M. C. H. S. and the glaring, useless "No Parking" signs arc needed--we'll know VICTORY IS OURS!

Travels 40 Miles Daily Miss Alberta Dwelle, junior college sophomore, has set a real nileage record in her attendance lere in that she lias traveled 10,- iOO miles in one and one half years ,o and from school. Since her enrollment in the jun- or college she has been traveling daily from Northwood, a distance of 20 miles, with an employe of a. Mason City plant. During the year 1941-42 she was absent only four lays and this year she has not seen absent. Neither year was she lardy in spite of adverse conditions of roads and Weather. Miss Dwelle is majoring in science leading to home economics in college. She hopes to attend Iowa State and complete her home economics major in education or dietetics. She was graduated from :he- Northwood high school in 1940 where she lives with her parents, BIr. and Mrs. Charles Dwelle. Miss Dwelle's record of 40 miles a day as compared with that of 18 miles made by Hobert Gildner of Upper Iowa university is exceptional. The question now, "Is there some other student r.ble to tell the Cub staff of greater mileage?" R.A. Many Students Change Studies for Second Semester of School The personnel of commercial and social science classes changes the second semester. Students, who during the first semester took personal bookkeeping from Miss Gladys Price or Miss Margaret Brakel.will take personal typing the second semester; while those who had personal tj\pins the first semester will take persona! bookkeeping.

M.P. 200 Students Absent From Home Rooms During 1 st Cold Wave The weather man's decree fo: Jan. 18 and 19 resulted in ap proximately 209 absences from home rooms Monday, and 300 Tuesday. However, many oE tb absentees appeared in classroom later in the/day. Junior college students braver the below-zero weather as somt. had to report as early as 7:30 jn order to write semester cxaniina tions last week. The great number of absences made it difficult for teachers anc pupils alike this week as mucl make-up work had to bg completed both by students absen from classes on account of the. operetta ns well as the frigic weather. s. R. CONTRACTS DUE ian contracts during the week I Feb. 1. M.P. Thirty years ago ill September, 1812, Reuben E. Nyquist became .·ommercial instructor of the Mason City high school. At that ime he taught all the commercial subjects -- business arithmetic, shorthand, bookkeeping and commercial law. The enrollment in the four jrades of high school then totaled ipproximately 475. Now, as head if the commercial department, he ;ays he is ably assisted by three women instructors in the supervision of the work of the department in which 450 students are ;nrolted. * * * Miss Grace A. Barnard has advanced commercial classes along with shorthand and typing while Ihe Misses Gladys E. Price and Miss Margaret Brakef have ele-* venth year typing, booltheeping and shorthand classes. Mr. Nyquist leaches, commercial law, bookkeeping and salesmanship to four high school classes and principles of accounting to one junior college class. Born in Moline, 111., Mr. Nyquist was graduated from the Moline high school. He attended Brown's Business college ot Moline and in 1912 was graduated from Northwestern university nt Evanston, III., with the degree Bachelor of Science. He received his Master of Arts degree from the State University of Iowa and has attended Boston university and the State University of Colorado at Boulder for instruction in advanced" work in accountin". Three months after coming to Mason City he was married to Miss Esther Carlson of Moline. For many years Mr. Nyquist has served the athletic department annually as clerk of football and basketball tickets. The Globe- Gazette "Twenty Years Ago" column told recently o£ his serving as basketball coach. His record as exchequer oj the funds of the North Central Teachers association totals 12 years. * * * For two decades his voice has been heard in the choir of -First Methodist church. One of the hobbies he has been compelled to ride (forced on him by his fellow faculty-members) is presiding as tonstmasler at faculty functions. Mr. Nyquist has seen hundreds of studenLs graduated from the commercial department--many of whom were placed by him and others of the department in good business positions where they were successful. "Looking back my greatest reward has been the pleasure ot working 1 with M. C. H. S. students and in seeing them succeed," he says. "Every success attained by student or grnduate really gives me a thrill."--W. W R. E. NYQUIST SPONSOR FUX-NITE Hi-Tri and Hi-Y are sponsoring a fun-nile to be held at the Y. M C. A.

As you read lis, the outside league record /ill have been changed -- the indblom game had not been layed when this was written . . Tbe Waterloo zone defense proved a near stumbling block for the Grlmsley meu. Johnny Uolmen was caught smack in the center of the zone, but pulled through when the going ·was toughest. Fats Day and Lloyd Klien both came through to brine the Mohawks this important -victory. Incidentally, the black eye sported by Johnny Uolmen was really acquired in the West Waterloo name. It seems he was raked in the slide of "cheap scandal." Tough luck John! . . .
