Farm animals in the United States create some two billion tons of waste a year. BY KYMM ZITTERICH "Cheer up! Cheer up! For heaven's sake, please cheer up!" That was my friend there, trying to console me, but to no avail. You see, next week is semester test time, and I don't remember a thing about Brit. Lit,, geography, or chemistry. My friend was trying to tell me me not to worry because no one was going to study anyway. I still didn't know what to think. Well, after two minutes of long, hard thinking, I slammed my books shut and decided to follow my friend's advice. I mean, after all, semester tests aren't the end of the world, are they? The first three days of the week went just fine. Sure I went to class and half-listened to the instructor reviewing for the test, but I acted uninterested. Like I said, no one else cared either. Then Thursday, as I was walking past the library, I noticed a few kids sitting at tables with their noses stuck in a pile of books. They even appeared to be concentrating. After class I went to the lounge, and there sat my friends, talking and laughing at dirty jokes- just like always! I forgot about those few kids who were studying and joined in the fun. That night was no different from any of the previous school nights, so my friends and I took in a movie and then rode up and down Central for at least an hour before going home. WOW! This was THE life— no cares or worries, whatsoever. Friday morning was just as petered out as the previous mornings, but I did manage to make it to my first class, even though I was tardy, again. Once more, aslwalkedpastthe library, I noticed kids sitting at tables, concentrating. Except this time there were about 20 more crowded in little bunches throughout the room. But this time, instead of being worried, I felt rather sorry for them. Imagine, cramming their heads full of 100,000 different ideas for a few unimportant tests. Good grief! However, when I went to the lounge this time, I noticed a few of my friends were missing. Must have been sick or something. But then I remembered seeing them huddled around a little table piled high with books. Hm-m-m-m! Now I did start worrying a little bit. Maybe I should go over a few of the main ideas. No sooner had I opened my book when the last of my friends came running my way with scowls on their faces. I reluctantly closed my geography book and sat back to listen to the latest gossip. 1 figured I'd get a little studying done later. . . . but later never came, and soon I found myself getting ready to cheer at the basketball game. I was getting more worried by the minute about those creepy tests, but I figured there's always tomorrow. After the game my friends disappeared, and I was left standing alone with a blank look on my face. What was going on? A few moments passed and I decided to go home and study, much as I didn't want to. But I was still puzzled about the disappearance of my friends. The long nights behind apparently caught up with me, and no sooner had I opened my book, I fell asleep. I dreamed about semester tests. Yuk! The next morning, Saturday, it was rise and shine so I could get ready to cheer at a wrestling tournament 200 miles away. As you've guessed, I had no time to study unless I wanted to when I returned. Well that was out, since we didn't get home til 2:00 the next morning. I was too tired to feel worried, so I went straight to bed. Where did the week go? To- Tomorrow was the beginning of those dreaded tests, and I hadn't even begun to study. No doubt about it, Sunday I was staying locked in my room with a "Do Not Disturb" sign on the door and the phone off the hook. It worked out perfectly! All day it was study, study, study . . . from noon til 10.1 was completely absorbed in my books. ' " •" At 10 I decided to call my friend and see what was happening. I found out that she had been studying all day tod. We both laughed to think we'd tried to talk ourselves out of being concerned. Everything was going great until we were talking about the different chapters, and I didn't know what she was talking about. There's got to be some mistake! She couldn't be right! ... It's now 3 a.m. and I'm still up. I have a feeling I'm going to be very tired tomorrow morning for my tests but at least now I can rest happily knowing I've finally studied the right chapters! ! ! Diary of Frustrations By ROLLY MOE Monday, Jan. 3 — First day back from vacation and already we've gotten word that our final papers are due next Tuesday. What a way to start the new year. Tuesday, Jan. 4 — Miss Patrick tells us our final papers are to be two pages minimum. As if I could do more. Wednesday, Jan. 5— Decided to do a one line list of definitions about loneliness. Something like, Loneliness is being 73 with a broken picture tube, or Loneliness is bowling by yourself on New Year's Eve. I thought it was a great idea but I ran out of definitions and decided to try something else. Thursday, Jan. 6 — Decided not to write my life story. Why ruin someone else's day. I also wrote a poem. And decided it wouldn't work. Not even quintuple spacing is going to stretch out a haiku into two pages. Friday, Jan. 7—1 thought I would write about my trip to California last summer, or my new motorcycle, or my solo flight, or my first time drag racing. But lies are never very interesting. So I gave up those ideas and forgot about that crummy paper until after the weekend. Saturday, Jan. 8 — Bowled, skied, tobboganed, fished, played hockey, played football. Sunday, Jan. 9 — Bowled, skied, tobboganed, fished, played football, played hockey. Sunday evening — Became ner- vious, tense, scared, frightened, nauseated. What am I going to do? If I don't do my paper tonight I'll have to do it Monday and that will be cutting it pretty close. Well, I've done it before, and I guess I'll do it again. Besides I can't miss the Mel Jass movie just for journalism. Monday, Jan. 10 — I had the morning free, but I can't possibly write anything in school. I then decided to write it after school. After school I played hockey. Monday evening I had decided to write my term paper on all the fun times I had playing hockey. But I scrapped that idea after consulting my sprained ankle and cracked ribs. I was depressed and feeling hopeless, ready to give up. And then suddenly an inspiration came. A clear and simple thought. So easy, but yet so hard to find. I would record the past few days and show the frustrations in writing my term paper. Assembly Honors Roslyn Foskey A special assembly program was held Tuesday for Roslyn Foskey, Rotary exchange student. Roslyn, who returned to her home in Dubbo, Australia this week, spoke to the student body about her homeland and showed slides of rural Australia. Mark Evans, FFA member, presented Roslyn with an FFA membership pin. She has taken agriculture and has been an FFA member this year. Principal Lou Bohnsack presented a gift on behalf of the student body. Tonight the Spencer Tigers will invade the Midget home court. This will be the second game in the second half of the conference season. Coach Hess considers Spencer a real threat to the Midget team. This game could determine the Midget's conference title if the Tigers should either win or tie with us. ' » • • <.i>Last week Spencer was upset by Sibley, so they'll really be fired up for the upcoming game. Hess said they're big, strong, and play a good defense. "We'll have to do an outstanding job of rebounding," stated Hess, "I feel Spencer is toughest in the defensive and rebound- areas." Saturday night the Midgets will invade Algona Public for a non- conference game. The team is one of the top teams in Northern Iowa, and was defeated for the first time this year by Webster City. The past three or four years Algona has beaten us. Hess said they're as good a ball club as we've played all year. They're big and have had a lot of experience, plus being a tall team. The three tallest players are 6' 8", 6' 5", and 6' 3". Two of the players are back from the state tournaments where they won a fourth place. "In order to win, we're going to have to get the game speeded up and get down the floor quickly," commented Hess. "We're going to have to get some shots before the Algona defense is under our basket." Game time is 8:00 for both nights. p Quotation* ——— STOCK MARKET ...

All students wishing to eat in the cafeteria these days were to sign up in the office on January 13.

Gym Machine In Use in P.E. Classes In the latter part of October the athletic department of EHS received a Universal gym machine to be used by both boys and girls. With the help of the Booster Club and its president Wayne King, a drive for $1,000 was developed. The school budget paid the remaining amount. The Universal gym machine has 17 different stations. The main advantages of the machine are the quickness to change weights, the safety factor, the rehabilitation of injuries, and the factor that weights are always handy and impossible to lose. The different stations include a leg press station, chest press station, shoulder station, highlat pull station, quad and deadlift station, chinning station, hip flexor station, abdominal conditioner, thigh and knee machine, back hyperextension and swimmer's kick station, rowing, wrist, and forearm station, dipping station, neck conditioner station, and the hand gripper station. The weights of the gym machine range from 60 pounds to 220 pounds as in the chest press station. The leg press station goes up to 750 pounds. There are only a few boys in EHS who have lifted 220 pounds on the chest press station. Besides building muscles the gym machine has the purpose of trimming and slenderizing by use of repetition. The machine has not only been used by the boys in athletics but by anyone who is interested in its use. For the last couple of weeks Mrs. Ostrem's girls' PE classes have been using the machine.

The film portrays the thrill of victory and the agony of their defeat through the exciting films supplied by the National Football League but it is much more than a sports film. It takes a penetrating look at a Christian coach, Tom Landry, and in the impace of his life on other people. It talks about faith and exhibits works and gives men, young and old, a classic example of what being a Christian really is. Billy Zeoli, president of Gospel Films, Inc., and the executive producer of 'A Man and His Men' when releasing the film for showings across the world said, "The fast action footage supplied by the National Football League and the penetrating in-depth look at the Christian character of Tom Landry make this one of the most exciting films of my career." Team Wins Tournament Debaters Mike Thiesen, Tom Pearson, Scott Sunde and Scott Rohlf won the "A" team trophy in a meet last Saturday at Lake City. They finished with a 6-0 record for the day. Using a modern automatic bale wagon, today's farmer can pick up enough hay in an eight hour day to feed the average dairy cow 11 pounds of hay per day for 58 years, according to New Holland farm equipment engineers.
