Since the new ruling of the board of ' education that no student may go through the graduating exercises unless he has completed 16 solid units of credit with at least 100 grade points (for 1937-38), students who Hope to graduate next year with their class will find it necessary to get their work In line this summer, If they are' short In any respect. Those members of the class of 1937 who at the close of school have 15 units of credit and have fulfilled all other requirements for graduation and those who have 16 units of credit with not less than 90 grade points, may complete the requirements for graduation in summer school and receive their diplomas at the end of the summer session, according to the- new ruling of the board of education. The summer school is intended to meet the needs of several types of students: 1. Those who need additional credits to meet graduation requirements. 2. Those who are short in grade points. 3.. Those who have failed subjects and need to repeat them in summer school in order to have their, work straight for the fall term. • 4. Those who have unfinished halves In whole year courses, such as American history, chemistry, biology, etc. 5; Those who are weak in some subject and wish to review to sertngthen themselves. 6j Those who were forced to drop' out because of sickness or work and wish, to straighten out their credits. 7. Those who wish to finish high school in less than four years. 8; Those who wish to take advantage of the rich curriculum offered by ! P. • H. S. by taking additional electives in the summer. 'Pees will be $10 for the first half- unit; $18 for two half-units; and $26 for three half-units. The normal load is two. half-units, and these are riot 'supposed to be in the same subject. Only .in case .of .repeats will .a student be permitted'to take thfee" half-units. Any subject for which there is sufficient demand wi|l be taught, including grade school' and junior high school work. Ernest Cabe of • the history department will be in charge of the summer school.

School authorities suggest in the handbook that any student who is behind with any of his requirements for graduation attend summer school the summer following his junior year in order to be ready for graduation the next spring, Our Faculty When you contact Helen Martin, music instructor of PHS, the quotation from Auerbach, "Music washes' away the dust of everyday life," comes'to mind. This charming woman exemplifies music. Miss Helen Hartin was born in Claude, Texas. Her early school days were spent in Clarendon, Texas, which is now her home. She received her B. S. degree from Syracuse University, Syracuse, New Yprk, and her Master of Music degree from the University of Washington, Before teaching in Pampa she taught in the American College for Girls in Cairo, Kgypt. This is a col- lege'for daughters of Egyptian first families, While abroad she attended a : 'music school in Fontainbleau, Prance. After coming to Pampa, Miss Martin taught music four years in Pampa. Junior High School, Last year at mi,a>term she became a teacher in Pampa High School where she started the largest glee club the school ever had. Through this organization, the school became interested in group singing. Tliis teacher has made the girls of the school music minded. Miss Martin has traveled extensively. The countries she has visited include. Palestine, Egypt, and various European countries. She says that she has no particular hobby, but spends most of her. leisure time reading. Her 'one and only vocation is teaching music. : —, ••»• ONE-ACT PLAY CAST FETBP During the past week the one-act cast has been much feted.

ADDITIONAL J4WP <m P»f« J9 THE LEADING ONE-FOURTH Winners of the District Interscholastic League meet are going jubilantly on their way to the Regional at Canyon. For months these winners have worked and worked hard m order to make themseves better than their opponents. Many an hour boys and girls have stayed after school to practice one^act play, shorthand, typing, spelling, track, declamations, and for other League competition. Often they wanted to shirk practice and go.d'o something that didn't take so much concentration. But they stuck, and even though they all didn't become winners they gained much for having tried. These are the one-fourth that are leaders, the one- fourth that ate going on and will always lead because they have the initiative and determination that marks the way to success. Not only does the Interscholastic League stimulate competition between classmates and other schools, but it creates a friendly relationship between towns. It has done much to further a more intensive plan of study. APPRECIATION TO THE P. T. A. Hats off to the high school Parent-Teachers Association! Much 'praise .is due to the Pampa P. T. A. and its very able president, Mrs. N. F. Maddux, for its splendid work in connection with the students of P. H. S. Some of the notable things that this organization has done in the past year in an effort to further the interests of the students are listed below. The P. T. A. sponsored the high school carnival last December to help the annual fund. It gave the Pep Squad and band a banquet. The Student Council was wholeheartedly reccomended by this organization. This association, with special emphasis on the part Mrs. Maddux played, organized the Harvester Mothers, Band Parents, and Senior Mothers organizations. , Vocational guidance programs has been given and the National Honor Society pins were presented by the P. T. A. The members are now planning an adult play, the proceeds of which will go for P. H. S. "letters." This association is cooperating in the Carlsbad trip and, as usual, will assist in the Senior activities at the close of the year. Mrs. Maddux has been doing in helping find rooms for the visiting band members who are to be in Pampa for the band contest the last of this week. Pampa high school students are indeed fortunate in' having such grand organization backing its every interest. Baby Brother an Expert Nuisance Editor's Notu—The folIowinB essay WHS juilfferi the winning essay of the Interscholastic LCUKUO district meet, which mot here Saturday. It was written by Dorothy Jane Day, who has always been prominent in essay writing, having won astate essay contest. She will next KO to the regional meet to he held at Canyon this coming Saturday. By Dorothy Jane Day Despite Flapper Fanny's wide exploitations or' her little sister as the supreme nuisance, I after due research and experience—particularly experience—have arrived at the conclusion that there is no one to compare with my baby brother. Do not misunderstand me! I don't mean a baby brother in rompers and cradle who runs up the laundry bill, but a baby brother In overalls and baseball cap who runs up the gas bill—he likes to play with fire. As a matter of fact, only two years ago he caught the house on fire while "playing" about. That would be beside the point except for the fact that I received the blame. "Big sister should watch and take care of little brother" — he can practically "manhandle" me as it is. Now, no matter what you tell me or how much evidence you may present you cannot convince me that a little sister can cause such a blunder and so neatly slide out of the deserved punishment. It Is not the big things that make the black marks mount against my brother so much as the common everyday occurrences. My lack of privacy would make the owner of a harem blush! Perhaps it is the old maid in me, but how I love to have bureau drawers and my dresser neatly arranged! I pride myself on their orderly and symmetrical appearance It is (or was) a rule of the family that the bureau and dresser of my room were not to be touched even by the most reverent hands. However, on arriving home from school and retiring to the comparative quiet of my room the other day I found the whole interior turned inside out. For a moment the thought of a cyclone or perhaps an earthquake whirled through my befuddled brain, but then I lighted upon a more logical explanation. I wrathfully flew into the living room where baby brother was sawing out an airplane on the carpet and started my cross- examination. ':'Why, I was just a- lookin' for a pen I lost last month." —and in my Bureau drawers! What can a .person do. This is supposed to be a Nation where people have equal rights. If P. D. R.'B court plan had a clause about the extermination or prevention of baby brothers I think I could "put it over" with little effort, perhaps a nation-wide appeal to big sisters. When I am taking a bath it is, ol Bourse, a more or less leisurely process. However, I scarcely ever spend over thirty minutes or so in all, but -I'll wager you my new spring' hat—and it is a "honey"—against a doughnut that I have never been in that bathtub over five minutes before he started telling me to "get a move on." Telltaling! That boy could give lessons to Benedict Arnold. When he is around doubts sometimes arise in my mind as to whether life Is worth living or not. Now, I could stand all this by summoning all my reserve powers, but he does not confine his attacks to the domestic side alone. He confides all my deepest secrets to my boy friends! That is what I call the tops In disloyalty to all family traditions. Of course, there are certain hours, of the .day ,when a .girl must cream her face; roll up her hair; and just lounge around in disreputable clothes. DO you know what my djd? Jfo tpjd, my Canadian Presents Girls Glee Club In Group Singing 'Miss Sewells, director of the Canadian Glee club, appeared on the Pampa high school assembly Wednesday morning with a group of 18 girls singing a series of vocal selections: Will You Remember?, Can't You Hear Me Calling, Caroline, and Sylvia, were featured. The trio sang Smooth Sailing, O Susanna, and Kentucky Babe. The Glee club continued with Allah's Holiday, and Maria Mia! Following this entertainment, Mr. T. C. Morris of the Texas Christian university, spoke to the student body on "Selling Yourself." The high, school band, which sent 19 players to all-state, played two selections, "Safari .Overture" and the "Finale" from the New World Symphony. Students who won in some of the interscholaistic meets were introduced by their respective sponsors. An announcement was made by Claude Motley, manager of the local theaters, concerning a special price for the coming attraction, "Romeo and Juliet." Home Economics Girls to FtWorth At the National Education Rally for Home Economics girls, five girls will represent Pampa high school on April 29, 30, and Hay 1. Maxine Wheatley has been chosen to model her wash dress, Jean Lively from Junior high school is going to enter judging in selection and purchasing of foods suitable for family meals and planning a luncheon or Supper, Leona Wray is to enter a play costume suited for a child in a specific situation, Betty Shryock will represent the club, Future Homemakers of -Texas, and was selected to model her special occasion dress. The girls will bo accompanied to Fort Worth by their sponsor, Angela Strnad. Sympathy Extended To Tidwell Family The faculty and student body of Pampa high school extend their deepest sympathy to Billy Tidwell, a sophomore in school here, and his family in the loss of their daughter and sister, Mary Edith Tidwell, who died last Saturday from throat infection. She was buried yesterday in Pampa and her funeral was attended by many of her closest friends, most of whom were students of high school. She had been attending junior high school up to the time of her Illness, heart-throb that I wanted him to come to see me last week and 1 he gave him a suitable hour. Well, my flame arrived in the middle of my period of relaxation a,nd there I was —and there he was—and there we were. What a day. I can hardly bear the boy now, or perhaps it is the other way around. There should be a law against it! I've been told that they throw bad children out into the streets In China. Mother and Daddy refuse, however, to move and they are immune to all my tearful pleas. If I ever marry and iny first child is a girl I know that I shall have more - consideration -than to burden her with a baby bro.ther. The mpd.ern orphanage hom^es are always open to baby boys. parents are kiwi but so very STARTS TOMORROW! BUY NOW! BEAT THE PRICE RISE! Without a doubt this is the greatest Ward Week in our history.
