Thank you Mike. In social studies we each brought all of the information which we could find about Abraham Lincoln and shared it with the class. We then wrote a story about Lincoln. This is our story: Abraham Lincoln was born in' a log cabin in Kentucky on February 12, 1809. He had one sister, Sarah, who was two years older than he. His mother died when he was seven, but he learned to love his stepmother. He went to a "blab school" for a few weeks. He had only about a year's schooling, but he learned to read, to wite. and to do some arithmetic. Lincoln could handle an ax well and was an expert rail splitter. He liked to '-cad better than anything else and studied to be a lawyer. He could tell jokes well, was poo-, and was so honest that he was called "Honest Abe". On Maxh 4, 1861, Lincoln became our lGth president during the Civil War. He freed the slaves in the South by signing the Emancipation Proclamation. On April 14, 1865 in Ford's Theatre in Washington he was shot by John Wilkes Booth. We welcome Henry Znbelski, Gary Landsberg, and Jim Reiter as our P. E. instructors from Upper Iowa this semester. in our study of the states. We have been working in our groups this week getting prepared to present our chapter to the class. Fifth Grade — Mrs. Downing By.Linda Lamphler We had our club meeting on Tuesday. We talked about a Valentine Party. We decided to have one on Wednesday. We made valentine envelopes for our valentines. Today we are going to make decorations. By the 12th we are supposed to have a story about Abraham Lincoln and by the 22th, we are to write a story about George Washington. In Spelling there were 17 with 100 per cent test papers. We drew pictures of a tooth and of a balanced meal for health class. We are studying * about the southern states in social studies. Jo Ellen L., Brenda L., Diane- O., John O., are to give reports on the southern States. We memorized a poem lor reading class. Sixth Grade — In language we are studying the uses of pronouns. We have found our speech to be much more effective when we are able to use the correct pronouns. We can now write our personal, subject, objective, possessive and other pronouns. We are to have a test on our pronouns very soon. Our spelling seems to be improving. This week eight people wrote perfect "dictation" papers. On Friday 17 people received 100 per cent on their final spelling test. Our health unit for this week tells us about digestion, respiration and circulation. We talked about the functions of the body in science, but we find our health book tells us many more interesting things. We are going to work in pairs and count the heart beats of our partner while doing normal classroom work. Next we are going to jump, first on one foot, then on the other, 30 times each, then count the heart beat again. Our body has two ways by which it maintains the normal body temperature of 98.6 degrees. One-the rapid beating of the heart during exercise forces the blood into the outer layers of the skin where it is cooled; two-pores open and permit perspiration to flow through them. This moisture evaporates and cools the body. Mrs. Everett Both group one and group two in arithmetic have had extra practice in addition this week. Group one has also beer, doing extra work in division besides learning to read many kinds of charts and graphs. Group two has been reviewing the SSi dWtaton 3nd WUrWng 8t ° ry SP"^ Education Eighth Grade — By Janeen Dilley and Louise Pickett In science class we have been studying Light and Its Uses. We are now starting a new unit of Atomic Energy. In arithmetic classes we have been studying Geometric Figures and Areas of Familiar Figures. In language class adjectives have been our chief subject. We found the different kinds of adjectives and their uses. The Civil War has been the chief subject in history. We will end the last chapter with a test. We will soon be starting civics instead of history. Everyone in the room is excited about our coming Valentine party. The class is studying about First Aid in Health class. In the few weeks to come we will study: Treatment of shock, minor injuries, poisoning, excessive bleeding, concussions, animal bites, burns, and artificial respiration. In health we have been learning some sa'ety rules for us to remember when we ride our bicycles. We have also learned how to, solve some, of our problems in everyday living by considering the feelings of other people, We started listening skills in reading. We have also Been concentrating on increasing our reading rate and still remembering we must read accurately. We were responsible for two more chapters in our reading books, More Days and Deeds and Roads to Everywhere. We had a unit test in our reading workbooks. In social studies we divided the class into three groups. Each group is to be responsible for one of the three remaining chapters Mrs. Swartz We are beginning to get used to our second semester schedule. Everyone was very pleased when ™i . , Marcella and Arnold passed the * ™* n * na * — Senior Sketch — By Larry Kelg January 1, 1944 was the birth- date of senior Jon Knight, the son of Mr. and Mrs. Carlton Knight. Jon has blue eyes, and blond hair. He is 1.78 meters and weights 68.036 kilograms. His hobbies are boating and cars, and he enjoys rock and roll arid instrumental music. If you are a person who is assigned to do something but always manage to pass it off to someone with the excuse that you are sick or can't make it when you are more able than the other person, "you" are his pet peeve. While in high school, Jon has participated 'n chorus, pep club, and audio-visual. In 1960, he placed fourth in the District Driving Rodeo, /ind in 1961, he placed first in the district and fourth in the State Driving Rodeo. His favorite memories of high school were the shop classes, and also the auto mechanics class. Next year Jon plans to attend Upper Iowa university. • Mr. and Mrs. Charles Webb are the proud parents of 5'4" senior, Marge Webb. This blue-eyed brow- nett has been active in many school activities-mixed chorus, select chorus, basketball, cheerleading, paper staff editor, annual staff, pep club, dramatics, science club, and girls chorus.. During her sophomore year, she had the honor of being queen candidate for homecoming. Some of her likes include-play, Oklahoma; clothes, skirts and sweaters; color, pink; music, popular and some Broadway songs; and actor, Tony Curtis. She does not like people who think they are better than others. In her spare time she enjoys sewing. Some of her favorite memories of high school were some basketball games, the 1961 prom, and cheerleading. Marge's future plans call for attending the Waterloo School of Beauty Culture and becoming a registered cosmotologist. "People who think they know everything" is the pet peeve of Delbert Pattison, brown-haired and brown-eyed son of the Merle Pat- tisons. This 5'8", 140 pound senior has been active in football, basketball, and track during his high school career. His favorite ( ? ) memory of high school was the day he got kicked out for doing nothing. Some of Delbert's favorites are fast music, the color, dark olive, sharp-looking clothes, and green Fords. His hobbies are water skiing and spending time with a girl. Following graduation this year, Delbert plans to attend U. I. U. or enter servlcs. How often we hen-, "there oughta be a law". A law to ban this or that, to prohibit something or other. We know a local fellow who seems to think there should be a state or federal law prohibiting any man past 65 from continuing on any salary jol) and also to prohibit the wife of any man. holding a salary job or operating a business, from holding a job such as an ASC or utility com pany job. Such a law, he declares, would greatly help solve the local unemployment situation. Any form of. Icgishit<".r prohibition is always a powerful and potentially dangeroi .s medicine. And it tend to cultivate abuses are done away with. .Somehow, it just isn't any fun to meet face to face with a slimy, wet fish everytime. you turn around. T-N-T Our happy shorthand reporter is happy to report thai the shorthand girls, and Larry, are "zipping" along at the fantastic speed of almost 44 words a minute. Our only hope is that we are hired by slow-taking bosses. T-N-T Congratulations to the play casts of all three one act plays. They were all very good!!! T-N-T Will someone please explain to Dayna that when Mr. Jackson tells her to slit the dorsal side of a worm to examine it, he doesn't mean to cut the tiling in half. They're a little more difficult to examine that way, aren't they, Dayna? T-N-T Here's a new pastime if things really get boring during some class. Just keep a glob of nutty putty handy for such cases of emergency. If you don't believe me, just ask Sharon Farley. She plays with it all the time, huh Sharon. T-N-T I knew this school had gone MAD, but I didn't think it was this bad. Two Senior boys were seen fighting over a MAD magazine the other day in study hall. Honestly, such MADness! ( I got it third in line ) T-N-T RTOUPSP HET RCDAS test and received their instructional permits for drivers' educat; ion. They are now driving on Tuesdays and Thursdays. They and Donald and Donna have physical education classes on Monday and Wednesday. Donna and Marcella have begun sewing projects. Marcella is making a two-piece cotton dress and Donna plans a two piece cotton dress with a matching coat. Linda and Sinda are making Easter egg trees. The project looked so intriguing that they couldn't wait for Easter 1 By Marge The theory about the world coming to an end has really affected some of the boys here at good ol' F. H. S. Several of them came to school with white shirts and ties on without being forced to. Goodness, Maude!Ml T-N-T We'll have no peace in Biology until Larry Keig and his "friend" and excesses. We would NOT wish , to see business and labor relations go thru what alcoholic beverage habits went thru as a result of National Prohibition. "Prohibition" set temperance and moderation back by at least fifty years. But, more seriously, human rights, freedoms, and liberties, have come slowly to the "common man", down thru the events of history. The Magna Carta was enacted at Runnymede, England, between the Barons and King John, in June, 1215. The English Bill of Rights was enacted by Parliament on the accession of William and Mary, in 1689. Freedom of religion, freedom of speech, freedom from unreasonable search and seizure, right to keep and bear arms, came with the Consiitution of the United States. Some of these fundamental American rights, freedoms, and liberties, are now under cleverly subtle attack by Washington "Bur- eaucrate" and "New Frontier" zealots who presume to think they know more about what we-the-people want and need, than we will ever know for ourselves. No thinking man would wish for legislation that would aid and abet this chipping away of our Constitutional foundation, just for the questionable result of a little help to the local employment situation in and around the little college city. PLEASE, my friend, meditate this matter the second time over, and see if you can come up with a more perspective opinion.

Little Chats on Public Notice Marriage Intentions ( No. 18 In a Series ) An eastern newspaper lists the names of couples who have applied for marriage licenses under the standing head of "Marriage- Intentions." In its way this is a form of giving notice. It is still not to late, of course, for a change of mind - or heart - but usually the "intention" is carried out. As is well known, certain churches follow the custom of publishing marriage banns for several weeks prior to the religious cermony that makes a man and a women husband and wife. This is another method of giving notice of the intentions of the couple planning to be married. The word "bann" is like other English words that have different or even contradictory meanings. It is sometimes spelled "ban," In common usage a "ban" is usually an authoritative prohibition such as excommunication. But in the plural "banns" it means specifically an announcement of intention to marry. Both the publication of marriage license application and the publication of marriage banns in church are examples of the deeply rooted custom, both social and legal, of giving notice. State laws cover thousands of situations in which notice by publication must be given ( mandatory ) or may be given ( permissive ). The standard medium for public notice is the bona fide newspaper of paid general circulation. It is a wise provision of the law which stipulates their use for this public service. This is not only in keeping with the necessity for putting others or. notice, but to give maximum coverage for the notice.
