HI Jinks * * * * Devoted io, "Behind The Scenes" Items From Algona High School. , "Tiger, liger, burning bright in the forest of the night" * . * ,* AHS's Scorch started as only a spark four years ago. 'Then, it was a modest 33-page booklet produced by just one class. The next year, adopted by the AHS English department, the spark was fanned into a steady blaze, Scorch became an all-high school publication containing 36 pages. ll 1954, Scorch again expanded to contain 56 pages. By last year, the flames were getting out of hand. Students were limited to one contribution each, to enable more students to be published. Too many fingers were tossing logs on the fire too fast. This year, the lire, swollen out of proportion and too hot, to handle, was quenched, . completely. There were no fingers'burned, no ember left flickering. It was decisive, workmanlike, and final. There would be no Scorch irf 1956. • * » * Lasi'Week, (the student council- sponsored school paper, the Bulldog Bark was" also squelched. The Bark, unlike Scorch, was a newcomer and 1 had been published only once previously. * « « Thus in Algona, Harlan Miller's "literary town", the literary spark at high .school level seems at present to be quite decidedly extinguished. "What immortal hand or eye Could frame thy fearful symmetry?"

An aye-aye is a Madagascar animal. "I'm not making up my mind to stay till I see how your water heater works." Can't blame her. Any woman who's had wash water run cold would feel the same. But with automatic GAS water heaters, there's always enough for laundry, dishes, bathing and for house-cleaning. Speed is the secret! Gas water heaters are 3 times faster than non-flame water heaters. And they cost a fraction as much to operate. See new long- lae models today.
