A delegation of high school girls and women of the community came to discuss the possibility of a girl's varsity sports program. Mrs. Bub Korver, spokeswoman for the group, suggested joining the GAA (Girl's Athletic Association) which would enable the girls to compete in state rour- naments.

Disciplinary action was taken against a high school boy who was accused of making black marks with the heels of his boots in a classroom.
