t High School Offers Opportunities This is the first of, a- series of articles to acquaint you with the courses of study and the extra eurricular offerings at Manning High School. The administration feels that t he citizens of Manning s h o u Id fcnow just what the school offers to thejr children. Thema- terial for this entire series Will be taken from the "Student Handbook," a book put out by the staff to aid students in choosing their course of study. Every year each student is given a copy of this handbook and Is encouraged to study and discuss the material it contains with his parents before registering for the next year's courses. Planning * a . high school course of study a matter of very serious consid­ eration for every student, .^"or some' students, the*-'end of their high school days will mark the end of their formal education, Others ? of us will use our high school training as a stepping stone for- further education or training at a college or university, professional school, business, school, or trade school. Whether we plan to take further education or trainirtg upon leaving high school or not, It is*" very important that we plan our future carefully and wisely. As students, our future is bright with promise. There are more vocational opportunities available today than ever before. Our rapidly increasing population tends to increase t h e demand for more and better goods and services.' Jobs are becoming more technical in nature. There is more and more competition from well qualified applicants. The good jobs—the ones with a future, will go to those with the best education. Employers are seeking those who have enough education to advance — to learn the next higher job. This is a very imposing future, but by making the most of our opportunities now, in high school, and by planning our future carefully with the help of our parents and teachers we will be able to play our part in building a better America. We must plan our work, then work our plan. — ' By Rae Lynne Wycoff. Launch it from Balloon 100,000 Feet High- Hope to Fire Rocket 1,000 -4 ,000 Miles Above Earth BALTIMORE —The Air Force late this month will attempt to fire a four-stage research rocket to an unprecedented altitude — |,0Qp° to 4,000 miles above the earth.T' the rocket will be lifted .the, first 100,000 feet — nearly 2d : miles — by a huge balfoon which Will Hhen serve as, a firing platform Joif the research* vehicle. The firing, j?hase 2 of. the Air Force's Project Far Side, will take place on Eniwetok Atoll in the Pacific, the Air Research and Development Command announced Tuesday. No specific date was given. Phase 1 was accomplished last June 28 when the ARDC sent the world's largest balloon — 200 feet in diameter and weighing 1,500 pounds' — up more than 104.000 Timts Herald, Carroll, la. m Wednesday, Sapt. II, 19S7 ^ feet with a record load of nearly two tons, ARDC said the rocket firing will be strictly an exploratory research effort, aimed at> gathering' data on cosmic rays, the earth's magnetic field and other phenomena of the upper atmosphere. "The firing is not an attempt to place a satellite in space" and has no relation to the Navy's Project Vanguard, the ARDC said, A spokesman also said Project Far Side has no nuclear energy aspects. I >The four-stage rocket will' be ! packed with instruments, includ- 1 ing a tiny, but powerful, radio transmitter which will relay sets** tiflc data back to earth. f There has been no description of the four-stage rocket, sight of which have been manufactured by •the Thiokol Chemical Corp', ot Elkton, Md. The helium-filled bat 'loon was developed by General I Mills Co. Class Officers Named at MHS Homeroom officers have been named at Manning High School. Those elected include: Freshmen — President, Gary Mundt; vice president, Allen Vinke; secretary, Paul Spieker; treasurer, Tom Bennett. Editorial One thing our football team has is enthusiasm, but as one alumnus put it, they better "shape, up or ship out" as far as their skill goes. Without a doubt, the majority of our real skill at football left Sophomores ^- (Homeroom A): ' with the sixieen who graduated President, Stanley Beck; vice president, Donna Kuhl; secretary, Randall Jansen; treasurer, Pamela Groteluschen.

During homeroqm period the students can bring up any problem they might have about the way some things are done in school. They can also give their ideas on how some' things "might be improved. — Prlscilla Hiatt. Coach Beach has a big job set out for him. Considering the willingness that is shown at practice, however, I believe that with a few games down, we will really begin to get tough. Frorn^ what I've seen of it, the attitude of the players in high school football is one of the most important factors in deciding who will win.^-Jack Hansen. Jack Hansen Band President Band officers for 1957-58 school \ year have been named. Those i elected include: Jack Hansen, president; Phillip Knaack, vice president; Kenneth' Puck, secretary; Dick V a u d t, treasurer. i i Band Council members named are: Seniors—Marcia Martens; juniors — Mary Frahm; sophomores —Stanley Beck; freshmen—Fran-: ces Grimm.

The girls had had three sessions with the "old" cheerleaders and their sponsor, Mr. Plambeck. Most of the girls, I'm sure, also practiced on their own. There were quite a few girls at our. first meeting, but after that some of them got so stiff they dropped First Pep Squad Meeting Conducted The vocal room was the scene | of this year's first Pep Squad meeting on Tuesday evening, Sep-' tember 3. President Linda Meg-, gers presided at the meeting. One of the first items of discus-, sion was the idea of, making the organization selective. Everyone ! 1 decided in favor of it. The officers plus Ruth Ohde, Sylvia Voll-; stedt and Betty Dammann were! put in charge of setting up stand-.i out. For the tryouts we had five; ards {or prospective mem bers juniors and four freshmen. j New memDers wi u be chosen The girls had practiced on two j soon after the Carroll football IOWA PUPIL TESTS Tuesday and Wednesday, September 3 and 4, the Manning High School students took the Iowa Pupil Test. All the high schools in Iowa take these tests. Their purpose is to compare how each student ranks in comparison with the other students in Iowa.— Leanne Ehlers. Three prisoners In a labor camp in Czechoslovakia 'engaged in surreptitious conversation. Whiskered the first prisoner, "I'm. here because I was suspected of being in sympathy with Radak." The second reported, "I'm, here because I was said to be plotting against Radak." The third prisoner said, "I'm Radak." • yells which they performed in front of four teachers -r- Mr. Ba -j ley. Mr. Euchner, Miss Klisart and Mr. Plambeck and the four "old" cheerleaders. The freshmen were all good, and the result ^showed that our new freshman cheerleader is Francis Grimm. The junior's contest was a little closer. There was a tie and nobody wanted to change his or her vote. We had to break the tie in some way so we asked the freshmen who were still in the gym to cast their votes — the winner — Nancy Loftus. There is a lot' of hard, time-consuming work, but I'm sure both of these girls will make fine cheerleaders. game. ; The new skit committee as cho-' sen by chairmen Susan Rowedder j and Betty Dammann are: Julia Johnson, Nancy Loftus, L i n d a j | Meggers and Susan Grundmier. j It was decided that - the Pep; Squad sponsor a dance following j the Carroll football game.
