uill VOLUME 2R TUESDAY, OCTOBER 11, 1955 NUMBER 4 Homecoming Spirit High B.v Deann Safley Think of Homecoming. Go on— give yourself a second or two to Just think of it as you personally think it should be. Oh, you're smiling. Pretty nice, Homecoming, if you make it nice. • Yes, it's true, it can't be anything unless each of you gives a part of yourself to it—your ideas, your energy, your time. Think about it. Think of the parade and floats, the Queen and her attendants, the pep meeting, fire, und snake dance, the game itself, and the Victory Dance. And when you think of it, you feel good because Homecoming is good— if you make it so. All it takes is your interest, that genuine kind of interest that makes you want to suggest, and work, and plan; the kind that makes you follow through until you reach your goal. So come on, think about it, write down any ideas you may have nnd hand them to a cheerleader. Ideas of any kind at all are needed and wanted, so please, won't you contribute yours? You are the deciding factor. It's up to you to either make or break Homecoming, for that's what it is, you see. You are Homecoming and Homecoming is you. Let's make it the best of us! Horizon Club Initiation By Pat Murphy Wednesday, Sept. 28, Mrs Bryan's freshmen Camp Fire group began their two weeks of initiation into Horizon club. Mrs Bryan's group and Mrs Cadd's sophomore Horizon club group met at Jo Ann Cadd's home at 5:30 for a potluck supper. Each freshman had one or two sophomore "masters", and each "master" had one or two "slaves". During the meal the slaves had to wait on their masters, hand and foot; dust their shoes, wash their dishes, get them refills, or anything else the masters could think of. After everyone had eaten" It was time for entertainment. Some of the highlights were: a cookie-eating duet by Jane Milligan and Margaret Stanley; a very realistic imitation of a dog scratching his fleas by Diane Bryan; a hula dance by Roberta Stream, Nyla Black and Karen Anderson; Jackie Quirk, Nancy Bass and Clarice Stanley sang "Let Me Go Lover" while Cam Lyon, Judj Harper, Nancy Cury and Audrey Brown did the Charleston; and Shari Morlan and Joyce Vecnstra put on lipstick while jumping up and down on one leg. The little blue pledge ribbons which are to be worn every day were passed out, and the masters B.V Tom and Dick The following girls were chosen for queen candidates by the Student body: Lori Hildreth. Sally Monthci, Katy Cudahy, Lois Burgess and Nancy Baker. To Reign As ISTC Fire Queen Marcia Robinson, former JHS student, is among a group of five girls who will reign as Fire Queens in Cedar Falls. They will reign over their Cedar Falls game Friday, Oct. 14. Marcia moved to Cedar Falls early in September. tltfi JEFFERSON BEE Jefferson, Iowa, Oct. 11, 1955 Rams Roll By Marian 31-0 The Jefferson Ranis retained their tie for the Midwest Conference lead by downing Harlan 31-0 at Harlan's homecoming last Friday night. Ron Voigtman received the opening kick-off for Jefferson and speeded fifty yards before he was stopped on the Harlan thirty. Two phys later, the Cyclones recovered ;i Ra'.n fumble, but Jefferson's defense held, and when the Rnms regained possession of the ball, they marched to the Harlan goal line with a series of line plunges. McIlrath scored from two yards out and kicked the extra point. Later in the first quarter, Jefferson again worked the ball inside the Harlan fifteen yard line. From there Mcllrath scored on n reverse handoff from Limburg. Nearing the end of the half, Ron Stotts intercepted a pass and ran wide to his right 50 yards for a TD. However, the ball was called back to the twenty yard line because of a clipping penalty, but four plays la- WANT ADS bring the best results I )cr stott's bucked over right tackle Try a Bee-Herald want ad this Cheer Leaders As Spirit Leaders By Lori Ilildreth It is the general opinion year that school spirit has been reborn in the hearts of the JHS students. Much credit for this fact should be given to our able cheerleaders, Deann Safley, Dottna Beckner, Lois Burgess, Marjoric Pollock and Margaret Stanley. With the approaching Homecoming activities they will be in action more than ever. When asked about the status of school spirit this year, senior, Deann said, "I think that it is always alive, but sometimes the kids let it slide when it should be more prominent." Donna replied, "Spirit is not as great at the games as it is at the pep meetings, especially the Ida Grove meeting." Lois had this to say, "There is more spirit than last year but when we are far ahead, people seem to lose interest in yelling." Marjorie's answer was "Response at the Ida Grove game was not good, and the out-of-town games seem to get the loudest results." To sum it up Margaret said, "Spirit is definitely better than last year but seems to die at times." It sounds as if we are doing better but we still should back the cheerleaders as a unit In backing the team for Homecoming and all games. Our Challenge By Sherl Kac Ilutchlnson Impossible? Not in JHS!!! All it takes is the will to work to make this the best homecoming of our school. Floats, parades, bands, teams, and a football added together make it home for the grads. But the recipe calls for something a little extra—like—"Spirit". The school and townpeople are behind you kids so don't let them down. Our team has practiced hard to gain victory for you. Where is the polish? Don't leave it off, rub hard and your float will shine like the stars to spell VICTORY. The tone ol the whistle is heard from the home to the visitor's side, but do you know the school song so well that we can make it ring across the field? "We are proud of our lads and our lasses, of honors won in days gone by, so here's a cheer for our high school, for our old high school, our dear old high. And as the days go by, you'll find us ready and steady, boosting for our old high!! Are you for a JHS double victory? Don't say impossible, say victory for the team and victory for your organization, making 1955 reign over homecomings for years to come. IT'S NOT IMPOSSIBLE!!!!

Jefi'vrson Phone 38 Grins & Groans By Gertie Grumble Courtship can certainly be a problem from the first date on. To the football player who is a woman hater, courtship is no problem. Listen to what he says—"I hate women, and I'm glad I hate 'em, cause if I didn't hate 'em, I'd like 'em and I hate 'em." ':>•' — GG — My first date created a peculiar problem for me. By way of starting a conversation on the date I asked Archibald, my escort, how old he thought I was. Archibald replied, "Oh, I'd say about sixteen." I was overwhelmed that he could guess so accurately. "How did you ever guess?" I questioned. "I didn't; I just counted the rings under your eyes," he stated. — GG — Many Jefferson students have found it hard to get along with the curfew after dates. The following incidents were heard by a member- student : "Must we say good night, sweetheart?" she sweetly asked. "No dear!", came a harsh voice from upstairs. "Wait a few minutes and say good morning!" — GG — It was approaching midnight and the young man still hovered by the door. The stillness was suddenly shattered by a loud crush upstairs. "Gracious dear," said the timid lover, "what could that be?" "Oh," replied the miss, "that's just Dad dropping a hint!" — GG — "Janie, what are you doing out there?" "Oh, I'm looking at the moon, Mother." "Well, tell the moon to go home, and come in off that porch. It's half-past eleven." — GG — He—(with hand over her eyes— "If you can guess who I am in three guesses, I'll let you kiss me." She—"Jack Frost, Davy Crockett and Santa Claus." — GG — This was overheard from a group of gossiping girls— "I understand that she fairly threw herself at him." "Ya, they met in an automobile collision." — GG — ! By the way how many of you : guys and dolls believe in love at first sight? Well, I think, it would ' certainly save a lot of time. i — GG — i Courtship will sometimes bring ; heart-break as some of the follow- l ing rejected suitors will verify. , Suitor (sighingi "Well, since you 1 don't want to marry me after all, I perhaps you'll return my rings." j Girl (coldly) "If you must know, ! your jeweler has called for it already." — GG — Joe—"So Ethel returned the engagement ring, hull? Smo—"Yes. she mailed it to me and .vhe had the nerve to paste a label on the outside of the package —GLASS, HANDLE WITH CARE." — GO- She—''Now that we're cnguged dear, you will give me a ring, won't you?" He—"Certainly, dear, what's your number?" — GG — Let'o fate i'. boyc, a eU'.fc v.i'h a modern girl is an open and shut proposition; she always eating.

"Push," said the Button. "Find a good thing and stick to it," said the Glue. They all know the secret—do you? That's right—"the secret of Success." Want Ads Will Get Results for Jefferson's third touchdown. The halftime score showed Jefferson on top 19-0. In the second half, a spirited Ram team intercepted three more Har- passes. Defensive line-backer, Corky Bailer, snagged one from the Dig That Cartoon By Will! Wells Artists are fascinating people and Al Monthei is no exception. His frequent drawings are both original and popular. Al's work has certainly made him "our school artist". Not all of Al's time is spent with his art work. Two other favorite pastimes are Hying and working on cars. We've all seen his striking yellow and black chewy. Circulation manager of the Quill, glee club, mixed chorus, mixed quartet, carrying five subjects and a member of the annual staff are just a few of Al's senior activities. He also enjoys watching football and basketball games. that we'll miss his cartoons other works of art. and When asked how it felt to be a senior Al remarked, "It's greatl skies and so did Stotts, who again Everybody looks up to us now." charged down the side-line all the A1 - s cnief arn bition is to be an way for a touchdown. aeronautical engineer; he's planning Later, with Harlan deep in its own territory and gambling, Ken Sunders snagged a Cyclone pass and threaded his way through Harlan tncklcrs to the end zone for Jefferson's final score. Penalties were a constant thorn in Jefferson's side on attending Iowa State college to achieve this. His secret ambition (?) is to be a flea trainer in a flea circus. Al!!?! Still Al's first love is art and he does a great free hand job. Maybe that's why his favorite song is "I'll Never Stop Loving You." I'm sure in this game. However, the Rain's strong fast line when this talented senior graduates nnd driving backs did not allow H;irlan to take advantage of these penalties.
