(Staff Photo bv Margaret Hinkle1 Tipton High Junior Historical Society News By Kathy Heaton THS News Reporter . As the basketball season program, much is said about the varsity and reserve teams, but not much is said about the up and coming players, those of the Freshmen team. . Tuesday the Freshman varsity and reserve teams played Alexandria. The reserve team, trailing at the start of the fourth quarter, tied the score with only 52 seconds left in the game. The final score was Tipton -31, Alex. 28. Boys playing for the reserve team were Bob Jacqua, Mark Miller, Eddie Burris, Greg Hoover, Kelley Alterr, Tim Maxey, Jeff Hunter, Ronnie Neff and Mike Patmore. The varsity team also won their game by a margin of 6 points. The iinal score was Tipton 35, Alex 29. Boy splaying for the varsity team were Jeff Landrum, Fred Cox, Jerry Carnes, Mike= Smith, Jerry Acres, Randy Gillium, and Rick Cauble. The Freshman team is coached by Myron Chezem. Cheer, leaders this year are Lindsey ^Hinkle, Becky Coyner, Mar'cia IHobbs and Cindy Bagley. As these boys wiH soon be those who play as Tipton High Schools' Varsity Devils, they deserve public backing and encouragement. Keep "up the good work fellas!! The largest number of volumes at any college or university library, according fo' the U.S. Office of Education, is 8,999,511 at the University of - California. Following in second and third place respectively are Harvard University, with 7,600,357 . books, and • Yale with 4,995,398. . \ Youth does like history, and realizes the need for maintaining tangible evidences of the past as an important facet of our Booster Heritage, declares Miss Emily Engeiland of Terre Haute's Wiley High School. In support of her statement she has announced the plans of Indiana Junior Historic* Society, an organization of 200 school history clubs with a total membership of ,10,000 pupils, to purchase, a 10 acre wooded tract of land in Vigo county to be,- converted .into a smaU park. This tract is important,, because on it is one of the few remaining .evidences of the Wbash and Erie Canal that traversed Indiana from Ft. Wayne tb Evansville. The canal can be traced through the entire area, and there is one lock wall remaining in perfect condition. With a small stream running through the tract,, it will be de-; velpped, in co-operation with Vigo County Histr ical Society into a recreational park, looking forward to the eventual restoration of the lock and water in the canal. Members of Wabash and Erie Canal Committee of Indiana Junior Historical Society, of which Miss Engeiland is chairman, are planning a work camp this summer for preliminary development. They wiU receive no pay for their work, other than living expenses. Indiana Historical Society for the past several years has been conducting summer Architectural Surveys, Archeological "digs" and during 1970 started work at the site of Ft. Knox n near Vincennes to _outline the, fort as preliminary to future development of the area by Indiana Historical Society. ! Miss Engeiland stated that it is necessary for the Junior Historians to raise money to purchase . the Vigo county tract and do the first development work. It is hoped that interested citizens of the state will show support of this project by contributions, which would be tax exempt. Any contributions sent to Indiana Junior Historical Society, Room 403 140 N. Senate, Indianapolis will be gratefully received, and will be proof, says Miss Engeiland that there is no generation gap. That adults and youth are working for the same goal. M iss Cheerleader The nation's No. 1 cheerleader is a 21-year-old Lebanon senior at Indiana State University who's a veteran in the business at the age of 21.

With the special WATS inward line, students will be able to call the Bureau of Correspondence Study at Bloomington from anywhere in Indiana without paying long distance phone charges. The Bureau is charged a set monthly fee for lease of the line. Dr. William J. Driscoll, associate director of the Bureau, sai^ Miss America Teenage Pageanf Finals, May 22 On May 22, the Indiana State Finals of Miss American.Teen- Ager Pageant wiU be held at Holiday Inn - East No. 8 in Indianapolis. Girls'from each area throughout Indiana will be represented. Presently Miss Debi Grimm of Rochester, is Miss Indiana Teen-Ager, having been crowned last August at Indiana State Finals. Current National winner is Miss Kim Graham of Morrow, Ga. A Miss Indianapolis will be chosen on May 21, and she will go into the state finals the following evening. The State winner, chosen on May 22 will be flown, all expenses paid, with chaperone to compete in the National Finals in Palisades Park in September. Girls from 50 states will vie for the title of Miss American Teen-Ager, and be eligible for scholarships, trips and prizes. Requirements arethatthe girls be between the ages of 13-17,. single and ah American Citizen. Contestants, however, must still be 17 on September 11. Judging • is for scholastic achievements, civic contributions, poise, personality and appearance — This is not a talent or bathing suit contest Nationally, this is the 12th year for the pageant and the second year in Indiana — oldest and largest teen-ager pageant of its kind in the nation. It is recognized by educators every: where and cited in the Congressional. Record for its outstanding contribution to the teen-age girls. Any; interested girls desiring applications may obtain them by writing the Official Certification Office for the State of Indiana at 126 Bunn Drive, Rockton, 111. 61072.-. the line will benefit enrolled student by giving them direct contact with instructors. It also will benefit high school guidance personnel and prospective students by offering channel for immediate answers to questions about registration procedure and course content. In the past, Dr. Driscoll explained, a student had to seek answers to questions concerning his course by writing a letter to his instructor. The question answer round trip procedure often-took as long as two weeks.. Not only did that procedure put students two weeks behind in the time needed to complete their courses, but the delay often caused students to lose interest in the subject matter. Becoming frustrated with the inconvenience of seeking an answer by mail, some students, at their own expense, have placed personal long distance calls to professors. Almost every correspondence study instructor has received phone calls from students at one time or another, commented Driscoll in explaining the need for the WATS line. The WATS telephone line will offer direct student - instructor contact to all students at no personal charge. Since one of the designed advantages of correspondent study is that students can proceed at their own pace, it was necessary to find a more efficient process of answering their questions, Dr. Driscoll pointed out; TQ use the new WATS line, a student With a question phones the WATS operator at t^e I. U. Correspondence Study Bureau. The operator then connects the student with the instructor of his course. With the question answered, the student can continue in his study without loss of interest or time. The WATS line for Correspondence Bureau questions will be open from 8 a.m. to 12 noon and from 1 to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday throughout the spring se. mester. ••• The WATS line number, Area ••..Code. 800, 742-4063, connects the student with the switchboard at .the Correspondence Study Bu. reau.

I have observed the attitude of fans after .athletic contests for several years. It has ranged from the intense hatred of losing to the triumphant joy of winning, from snobbish indifference to deep concern. I think that if you analyze the atmosphere- surrounding high school athletics, you might be inclined to' think that it's more than just a. game. I Teen Co-ordinators for the Tipton County March of Dimes are Judi Steahs and Becky Aikman. For the past few weeks, Judi and Becky have been working with Sister Ann Welter to get the project underway. The March will begin Monday and end Saturday, January 30. Becky, a senior is from Peru and the teen chairman of the March. She is very active in many school activities and is the photographer for the yearbook., j Judi, co-chairman, is also a senior and lives in Anderson. She is senior class president, drama club president and a member of the yearbook staff. (Story and picture bj Liz O'Toole, St, Joseph Academy) A game means many things to an athlete. First of all the athlete must enjoy playingj the sport. Most coacheswillagree that ability, is easier to cultivate than such things as attitude, desire, and pride. Practice and physical and mental conditioning are r a necessary sacrifice.'. • '' ' ' To an athlete the game is a measure of himself as a. person. Each game is a challenge, putting your skills, mindj and desire against your opponent. So when you lose you gather together something known as pride. - . Many times I hear that referees lost the game or one -player lost the game. The men in the striped shirts don't determine the loser, and neither., does one player win or lose a ballgame. It takes an entire teani and the coach pulling together as a unit. When the team loses it's because not everyone was pulling in the same direction. Darrell Royal of Texas has said many. times that referees don't win games, and fancy plays poa'l .win .games, nor does the best equipment, angry, people win games, j Athletics is much like the theater, ; the- players are the main characters, but the audience is a necessary part of the performance. The community's support behind the team plays a vital role, and a more important one if it is favorable support. Jthink it would do us weU to remember the words of W. Clement Stone: "There is little difference in people, but that little difference . makes a big difference. The little difference is attitude. The big difference is whether it is positive or negative." , Youth Asked for It Wanted: Bridge For Communication Gap Dear Helen: • Pm'writing this letter in my room. Mom is in the kitchen, but it's like nojone was here. You see, we're not speaking again. Dady died in 1968 and that left Mom, my brother and me. Things have been going wrong ever since. Mom admits she uses us kids as a sort of ^whipping post on whom to let out her tensions.. She yells when we overlook the least little thing. Like tonight, she came home, from work and found two dishes in the sink. I'd cleaned the rest of the house, but all she saw was the kitchen, and she started using four-letter words. So I used them back, which I hardly ever do, and. she slapped me and said I was just like the rest of my generation --no good hippie-junkes, etc., etc. So I screamed "Shut upl" and she said "Don't come out of your room until you can apologize," and I don't think Pm the one, as she started it — if she can swear, how about rae?^ ' My brother has run away twice since Dad died, and his grades are terrible.; He cuts school and has been'to juvenile hall several times. He tells-Mom to her face that he hates her, and that shocked me.. .But tonight I said the same thing, and now Pm miserable because ijreally love her, if she'd let me. ' You see, I remember the good times — and sometimes they're still goodl Mom gives us great presents but I'd trade them all to be friends with her again. ••' This is. my question, Helen. We're not so poor that she couldn't afford to send me away to boarding school, grades are good so Pd do well there. Pve always refused before as I thought Mom needed me, especially with my brother having troubles. But maybe it's best if I go. My nerves won't stand much more, and maybe hers would be better too; if • she didn't have two kids to worry a! •f"'.- — D.J. Dear D. Boarding school might be a - for both you and your brother solution, j But don't leave in angerl You already know what causes your mother's tantrums. Worry, overwork and loneliness have all but closed communication lines at your, house, but you can open them if you remember three little words:; .'j'Don't fight back." Sometimes the child must be more "adult" than the parent. It's so easy Jto fight hurt with greater hurt, then retire to your room feeling miserable and mistreated "because SHE started it." It's a lot harder anticipating a. mood and heading it off with special kindnesses, - when you feel anything but "kind." Try it for two weeks.' Then ~ perhaps you can make a decision about going away tq-school without feeling that it is an escape. I hope so! ~ H. Dear Helen: ! . Therefs a lot of flak about female beauty pageants. How come the. guys don 't picket for "equal opportunities." I never heard of a.teenage MR. American show, oh national television. — BUTCH Dear Butch: ... And you probably never' will. Ah, discrimination.... — H. Dear Helen: . Pm eight months pregnant, the father keeps saying he'll marry me, but something always happens to make him put it off. Now he says we have to wait till he gets a good job. I think he just doesn 't want to pay for my bills. He already owes me $200 he borrowed last year, • If I don't marry him, i may never get it back.' (Besides having a fatherless baby my folks will have to adopt; (They want to). Should I keep hoping? — TERRY .. • . Dear Terry: Better to lose $200 and have a fatherless baby than gain a husband who may never be a man — H.
