No. l, sept,; EDITORIAL: Have Fun; Educated Fun Life is shown in many ways; places to see, people to love. When you have an education you will see places in life and find people to love. Going to school doesn't mean you'll get an education. You have to want one. Most, if not all, high school students become mature through an education. All students stand out in some particular subject. Maybe yours is sports, music, or academics. To become educated you must become involved with life. The time one puts toward studying now could mean a different college or even a different life, even the change; from minimum wages and an unlimited amount. It may not mean much now, but think about it; would an F impress your friends? How about your teachers, or your parents? Wouldn't it be better to say I got a B or would you rather say I didn't study and flunked. Sure, you might have been able to pass, but so what: Couldn't it have been a better grade if you had studied. If you can't get an A or a B, but you still studied, be happy with that grade. You did your best and that's all you can do. "Why study? I can copy Mary," some may say. But will she" be around for finals or in college. How far can you get without an education? Yes, some are lucky. They sit around copying and cheating and still get good grades. Ask them how their consciences are doing. Welcome to you students that want an education. Have fun; educated fun! What is Life ? No one thinks much about being alive-Living and being somebody is just a common every day thing, or is it? One can be alive and be dead to people or one can be dead and be very much alive to everyone. When one considers the physical body of a person one realizes it's not that much. It's not quaranteed to work so you never know when its "end" will be. But, if you think of it as just a room for one's soul while on earth, it is important. Living is the greatest priviledge given by God. Since it was given for a purpose, we should live as full a life as we can. Those people that don't try or even care about their life are to Him, dead. These are the people who don't know what life is all about. There were other people who did live life to Its fullest. They did this by giving of themselves, forgetting the "downs" of life, and remembering to have faith and fun. Why then are these the people God takes away? What a question! One knows not to ask but when memories return to a lonely mind sometimes it can't be helped. When one thinks though, it becomes clear, because all the memories are joyous ones and they are the ways to keep the person alive, very much alive. God has a purpose for everything He does. Someday, if he wants to, He will reveal the reason for taking the life of a wonderful person. The loss of a close friend is hard to forget. But, who wants to. If one remembers, it helps that person to look at his life so it won't become "dead." Memories are beautiful things. A person never dies when his or her life is kept alive in the minds of friends. The death was a rebirth for that person, and for others, a chance to change their life for the better. It's just too bad people are human and need a jolt like the death of a friend to change them.

The school nurse will be here every Tuesday. If you need her any other time, stop in the office. pass to Brad Roos for the conversion. The Little Dutchmen proved to be a very aggressive and hit hard during the whole game. Some of these players will be of great value to the Varsity In coming years. Scramble FFA NEWS Dancing, fun, food, and music were the topics when a scramble was held In the Maurice .- Orange City gym Friday night, August 27.

The difference about these new teachers Is that they all have worked in the M-OC school district before. Many students should remember Mrs. Van Citters from eighth grade home economics. She is now teaching one class of freshmen home economics which includes six students from Unity Christian High. During her one year's absence Mrs. Koszegi went to Vermont, London, and Paris. She studied for one semester at a school for foreigners and spent the rest of the time taking in the sights of Paris and surrounding country. This included a trip through Southern France, the Mediterranean, and the Riviera. "It was nice to be there and nice to learn many things, but we're very happy to be back in the United States," she remarked., t .... j,;, v , Mr.' Vander "Stoep is also a transfer from the M-OC Junior High. He enjoys working in the guidance office and is acquanted with most of the students who were in junior high. The beginning of the year has been very busy with schedules, and the ACT testing program. He believes the new work-study program will help a lot of students make up their minds as to what kind of work they want to do.
