BY ESTEfBAN Due to circumstances beyond their control, the student council had to go without a band for the Sno Ball last Saturday, but the top sounds of today were spinning on the stereo and everyone had a great time. The Student Council went all out with the assistance of Mr. Van Haaften, head of the art department at A.H.S. A towering Christmas tree was situated In the middle of the floor with special effects by Christmas colors adding to the beautiful alteration of the annex. - o The mass production uni* of woodworking D -lass has com- pleted a new project.

Boys selling them are Al Aldrlch, Brett Bartlett, Ray Chamberlain, Dean Cooper, Sergio Febles, Alvern Frledrich, Alfred Hahn, Jim Muller, Russ Harms, Don James, and Larry Muller. Mr. Martin is the Instructor and says the price Is a real bargain for such a useful article. - o The high school choruses gave a wonderfully modern version of Christmas last Wednesday eve- ning. The auditorium was Jammed with a well-pleased audience that heard 32 selections from the mixed chorus, the Junior high chorus, Symphonettes, band, girls' chorus, and the Modern Choir. The title of the program was based on a thirteenth century plain song . . . "0 Come, 0 Come, Emmanuel." Featured soloist was Sherl Baker, a senior soprano. It truly was a great combination of artwork and musical Inspiration. - o- The Modern Choir was honored by the Klwanls Club last Thursday.

They were taken in October and included color photograph!, also. For about a week now, students will be using their study hall to write on the back of the individual photos, and mass exchanging will continue the rest of the year. "Pll give you one of mine If you'll give me one of yours ... and be sure to write on the back I" - o- D.E.C.A. began another project last week. They are selling pen sets (4 in each set) with red, blue, black, and green Ink. They come in a pack in the form of a schoolhouse that has the words "Back The Bulldogs" written on it. - o Our F.B.L.A. man on the move (Bill Boldrldge) tells us that the organization has completed the selling of wreathes and helped at the Jaycee Christmas party last Sunday. This club has about 30 hard-worker s and some are very good bakers — they had another candy sale after school Friday. - o We noticed the disappearance of three girl*' pictures from the F.T.A. bulletin board last week. Future teachers Carol Slonlker, Brenda SJogren, and Sandy Harmes are minus one photo each . , . could It have been some wrestlers visiting the Algon* Invitational* last week that recognized beauty when they saw it? Tonight (Tuesday), the Future Teachers at A.H.S. are hearing last year's senior member stalk about college. The F.T.A. college panel will consist of some of the 26 members that graduated last spring. Last year's senior membership was quite large so many different impressions should provide for an Interesting evening. - o- Turnlng to sports (?) we unfortunately report that two boys' Intramural teams were banned from further participation until after Christmas vacation because of unnecessary roughness. It seems the players were a bit over enthused in the Warrior- Hawk game. Not that there was any violence or vulgarity but when basketball can't be distinguished from football ... al- though iff ran ... it's time to review the rules, -o- Turning to music (1\ we have toe Sweet Sixteen tunes Oh* <**rent hit tunes) and their fictitious authors here: I.

Bill: "Too bad she doesn't please anybody." She: "Pm not myself tonight" He: "Then we ought to have a Mr< good time." "Is the dance formal, or can I wear my own clothes?" - o- While we're on the subject of Jokes Fll close with this tidbit of Information from government class . . .
