"Tiger, tiger, burning bright in the forest of the night" * o » 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. * * V In 19S4, 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 fire, 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 in 1956. ' if! >> >'.' Last week, 'the student council- sponsored school paper, the Bulldog Bark was also squelched. The Bark, unlike Scorch, was a newcomer and had been published only once previously. Thus in Algona, Harlan Miller's "literary town", the literary spark at high school level secmr at present to be quite decidedly extinguished. * * * "What immorlal hand or eye Could frame thy fearful .symmetry?"
