Aside from tfie face tnat AHS's basketball coach consistently turns out good teams, there is oonsidei able convenience in his name, which adapts well to regal events sucli us last Thursday's coronation at the pep meeting when he was crowned "King." Mr Deines' junior high proieges gave impressive warning ol tilings to come, the seventh grade basketball team finishing their season undefeated. Optometrists have been having a field day at AHS the past few weeks. It seems that the female population has decided that boys seldom make passes at girls without broken glasses.
