This year could be the greatest year ever for Humboldt High. The football squad leads the conference and will have won the conference title if they beat Clear Lake at the Homecoming game October 28. This would be the first time since 1958 that a Humboldt team had performed this feat. During halftimes we are proud to see the finest high school band in the North Central Conference go through their steps. Crosscountry is another source of school pride. They finished the season undefeated in duals and triangular! for the fifth straight year. They also won the State Mile Team Race and the Humboldt Invitational. Individually, Humboldt's Dan Sanders is the second fastest crosscountry runner in the state. Adding to the spirit of these three groups is the Pep Club. They support the football team with signs, assemblies, and loud voices. Throughout the year all clubs, organizations and athletic teams are looking forward to success gained by hard work and school spirit. A serious threat to the success of this school year is the recent wave of vandalism. Yards hove been "teepeed," windows soaped, faucets stolen, soap thrown through windows, and Halloween decorations destroyed. These all have an unwanted effect on the school. At first, it was innocent with a few houses getting covered with streamers of toilet paper and their windows soaped. But recently vandalism has gotten out of hand, as faucets started disappearing at the school and a bar of soap was thrown through a window. This is useless destruction. It isn't smart; it doesn't take any ability to destroy or steal. The only thing it does is lower school morale. To steal a faucet only harms the school image. It was embarrassing for the entire community to notice the absence of faucets at the recent school carnival. How can it be stopped? It is up to us, the students. Teachers are not paid to babysit. Out of pride for our class and school we must report incidents of vandalism and discourage their friends from doing it-then, and only then, will it step. With the town covered with '67 signs, our class will long be remembered. But it would be much nicer to be remembered for our accomplishments rather than our notoriety. Let's be on good behavior Halloween night and end the school year with a list of accomplishments no other class can match. Editor's note: We would like to thank the anonymous individual who returned the stolen faucets. This is a step in the right direction and we hope that more people can follow this example. it Think of a three letter word meaning father. Take away the last letter of this name and add to it the fourteenth letter of the alphabet. You now should know the first name of this week's It. However, most people don't call It by It's first name, but by a name that is formed by dropping the final six letters in It's ten letter last name. If you're not altogether confused and haven't quit, the next two sentences might make you. Remember that six letter part of It's last name that is dropped? Well, it just so happens that those six letters make up the first name of an English teacher in our institution of higher learning (HHS). Last week's It was Tom Brandt. Mobiles of wire, thread, wood and cardboard have been the project of the Art II class during the past week. Some artists created impressions of people, or animals, while others made designs which change with every movement of the air. At the present time, the art class is engaged in figure drawing. They are trying to Improve their skill in action drawings and lighting sketches of people in various poses. The Art I classes are doing one and two point perspectives (drawing objects in a way that show their distance from the vanishing point). Currently they are making sketches of corners and sections of rooms. 1*1^»£» Cheerleaders 'ratal the roof* Varsity cheer/eaters ore shown as fhey "raised the roof" in preparation (or homecoming activities at Humboldt Community High School.

Activities started last Monday and were concluded Friday night with an after the game dance. They included the gome, coronation, parade, bonfire, and pep rally.

Twenty sophomore girls were learning the hard way, from initiation by the junior and senior members, to appreciate their membership in GRA. The fan began with the sophomores being blindfolded and big red and blue letters, GRA, being smeared across their faces. After being sent through a "paddle- line" where upperclassmen were allowed to slap the underclassmen-without being sent to detention hall, the sophomores were sent running three laps around the gym. The new members were then escorted into the locker room where they attempted to push a tiny, white navy bean through a pile of shaving cream. From there they were led to the restroom where they stood in flushing toilets and sang the Loyalty. The sophomores were returned to the locker room where they; were bombarded with water, filled balloons.

Don't the rest of you/teachers read thepaper? There will be no school next Friday because of the parent- teacher conferences. Well, that's poetic justice for ya, or Is that too ambiguous? The 22nd annual Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Tests were given Tuesday, October 18. High school seniors who are members of the ^National Honor Society are eligible for scholarships on the basis of their scores. The Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Test may also be taken by juniors, but their scores cannot be used. Semifinalists are selected on the basis of the PSAT results and they are notified in January. The Scholarship Board considers the individual grades, rank in class, need and service record of the semifinalists. The winners will be announced in May, 1967. Nineteen Humboldt students took the test. The seniors were John Arent, Jon Hart, Margaret Hauck, Joanne Johnson, Arlys Kuehnast, Phil Lanning, Adele Pederson, Joan Petras and JoAnn Wally.

Powor reading program underway at Humboldt high The editors English department busy; seniors define 'Happiness' by Aijele Peterson Twelve Humboldt High School students have begun a power reading course, instructed by Mrs. Jean Andersen. Its purpose is to improve speed and comprehension in reading. Comprehension^ stressed since that Is usually 'the. malff retflon.' for reading.' - :'"'•'. ':!••' '* -<jl. The students involved in this new project are John Arent, Cindy Cran, Dave De Groote, George Geisler, Scott Lerdal, Judy Mayall, Adele Pederson, Diane Staubus, Sue Thomas, Tom Thomas. Steven Walters, and Tom Watson. The students read at their own rate for approximately nine weeks. The average reading speed is between two hundred and two hundred and fifty words per minute. A realistic goal would be to double this rate. A reading control machine regulates the speed and tests are given over the material to check comprehension. Mrs. Andersen recommends outside practice by reading material similar to that used in class. Sport SAorts Roger Looney doored 2 touchdowns as Humboldt defeated Pooahontas 260 on October 26, 1930.

The student's Initials appear inside the ring. by Nancy Fuller The English department of Humboldt High School, under the direction of Mrs. Rank, Miss McRorie, Mr. Becker, and Mr. Christensen has been busy so far this year. For example, this week Mr. Becker's classes read the prize- winning play about Helen Keller's life, "The Miracle Worker." "Twelve Angry Men," a play which was written for television, was read by Mr. Christensen's sophomore English classes. They will also read "The Miracle Worker." In Mrs. Rank's senior classes, students were kept busy by several in-class writings. In these writings, the students have the first ten minutes to organize their ideas and the rest of the period to write. The first of these exercises was a theme on "Happiness." The best theme, chosen by Mrs. Rank, is printed below. The author is Jon Hart. Happiness Happineee is autumn in the river vaBey, It's galloping over the river pasture and mounting the er**t ot the highest hill on a man fall afternoon. It's the (jpfeotor of surveying the beauty of Mother Nature from t»U vaata** point, to see nature's most final,'yet'most colorful preparation for the cold months ahead. If s the cold, babbling brook down at the valley's bottom, hurrying to its destiny- smooth and swift, marred only by an occasional crimson or bronze leaf, falling to its .death. And then, its the cool, brisk wind, gathering strength and fury, catching the leaves, swirling and gathering them, performing its own pageant. It's that squirrel busy filling his mouth - fruits, nuts and berries, all ripened from the long growing season- preparing for its winter hibernation. Yes, even the dry grass, dusty and fragile beneath the horse's hoof shows the wear of the forces of autumn. In the distance, the sharp report of the hunter's rifle reaffirms the time of the year, Overhead a clock of noisy geese announce their departure to a warmer climate, while underfoot the quail and pheasant hurriedly make their way to the tall, brown grass of the fencerow. It's a time of color, of beauty, of busy activity, of lazy tranojuillty - it's autumn. HEARING ACCURACY EXPLAINED mnuee«u,mm BERRY HEARING AID CENTER At praient we hoy* no R«pr«tentative In Humb.ldf.
