The victory bell got a somewhat unexpected workout last week when several members of the overjoyed school board decided that the passage of the school bond issue was a victory worth proclaiming. « * • Speaking of the victory bell, it sounds a little under the weather these days. Perhaps it's because the basketball team keeps making it work up a sweat whenj it's outside in the cold and snow. * * * For those attending the Boy Scout Court of Honor at the high school last Wednesday who were impressed with the formal attire of the AHS Pep Band, that was the first and last time for such an extravaganza, barring an appearance of natural phenomena and or the Symphonettes. « • * The big Annual Sales Thermometer Contest, '.in which each class (7-12) and the faculty were ranked according to the percentage of those who purchased Annuals, ended last week. The seniors won, to the surprise of no one (seniors handled the contest.)' • • • When the Eagle Grove-Algona game ended, there was a stunned silence in the Algona section, as if no one believed that the game was really over. Even after the teams had left the floor, I found myself expecting the game to suddenly commence again. The Algona fans were not happy with the officials. The Algona team and coach were not happy either; no team likes to lose. Yet, in placing such an emphasis on a winning team, we have lost sight of the importance of the playing. The success 'of a team'should not be measured by their win-loss column; it should be measure^ by the readiness of the losing team to congratulate the VWnnefS.
