Love S. Security D. Discipline Sure, we all have hardships but none compared to the homeless. Those that are given no love, no security, and given no discipline. Are those people going to just steal and perhaps even kill, and most likely start dope? How would you feel? One reason could be the parents. They separate -- get a divorce — and the child is left out In the cold. We can help this problem. How? It's amazing what friendship can do. The way one acts and talks can be an asset or a handicap. Please help the kids from Harmony Youth Home! Show them the real L.S.D.

With the new semester came a few changes, No bells will ring to direct • students to their classes. This gives them the responsibility to get to their own classes and meetings on time. Seniors have the opportunity to prove they are an RS, which stands for responsible student. An RS Pass Is a sheet of paper, listing what a Responsible Student doesnt do and leaves spaces for all of the student's teachers to sign. The faculty does this on the basis of the student's attitude and performance in that particular class. After this Is completed, Principal Robert Winegar must sign It, in order for the pass to be completely valid. What does an RS have in his favor? First of all, he doesn't have to report to a study hall. His name Is omitted from a study hall sheet. Secondly, he has proven that he is a responsible student, therefore less restrictions are placed on him. However, he must continue to abide by the rules to maintain his RS pass. If not, he loses It — no questions asked - one week's time, after the first loss, he may apply for another, but if he loses that one, he Is completely restricted, once again, to the study hall rules and regulations, without the opportunity to ever apply for It again. The library is to be used only for research, reading and studying this semester. This will rid the problem of unnecessary noise, visiting, and lounging in that area. These changes are the beginning of something new in store for the future of M-OC. If all goes as planned, the 1972-73 school year will be run with a complete flexible schedule. FTANews Mr. Vander Stoep is working on setting up two programs for the FTA members in relation to the fields they're Interested in. The prograhis are called the Tudor-Teaching Program and the Teacher-Assistant Program. Banquet Student Teachers New PE Teacher Mrs. Jody De Haan Is the new Physical Education teacher at M-OC.

A complete array of weapons was shown indicating which •were of better quality and how the manufacturing of each had , improved.

Nueman left the students in awe as to how much he knew about the war and how much he related to them in only 2 short hours. Doc. Is now starting to collect and read up on the Sioux Indians. Maybe in a few years the M-OC students will have another fantastic talk. The Father-Daughter Banquet was held Jan. 18.

The Flag of the USA For over one hundred and seventy-five years, the Star- Spangled Banner has waved "o'er the land of the free and the home of the brave," the proud and sacred symbol of the freedom, equality, justice, and humanity for which our country stands. The history of the Stars and Stripes is the history of our nation: It symbolizes not only the ideals, traditions, and free institutions of our Republic, but also the expansion and territorial development of our United States. The thirteen original stars have grown In number to flfty-the union of our fifty states held together by the bond of our national government-while the thirteen stripes preserve the traditions and ideals of .the thirteen colonies or original states which so nobly laid the foundations of this great independent nation. Our respect for the flag and what it means to us could be summed up in these words: "I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one nation under God, Indivisible, with Liberty and Justice for all," ' Seated are: Miss Margaret Fondse, Miss Diane Blom, and Miss Leah Te Brink,] Standing are: Mr. Gregg Bosch and Mr. Bill De Jager.
