4-Algona (la.) Upper DM Mob** Timdoy, Jan. 10, 19*7 I ACTION AT A.H.S, BY ECTtiBAN THAT CHRISTMAS vacation sure did go fast. We got out Wednesday, Dec. 21. Remember? The talent show was held and everybody was in the Christmas spirit. "The Group" made the scene without any amps blowing up or without the microphones going haywire. Some say the "music" of the first-place winners was a little on the loud side. Everybody else was out in the audience .... what do you think it was like with the amplifiers directly behind you ? - o - SIX AMBITIOUS (?) lettermen helped sell refreshments at the clinic at Garrigan Dec. 29. The boys were asked to.assist some of the Garrigan athletes in the selling at the A.H.S.-G.H.S. sponsored basketball games. Don Camp, Max Miller, Larry Munger, Randy Riedinger and Clint Young had to wrestle at Osage the next night but they were willing to do this for their school. Oh 1 Mike Dreyer volunteered his services, also. - o- HAS ANYBODY read the book "Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde" by Robert Louis Stevenson? Daryl Johnson has. Haven't you noticed the "change" in Daryl lately? Ask him to do the mad scientist bit and prepare yourself. - o - What's worse than raining cats and dogs ? Hailing streetcars and buses. - o - ARE YOU KIDDIN* ME? Did the Cadettes really need new uniforms ? They sure do have 'em. Now that we've got the big purchases out of the way, how about a new school ? - o - GUESS WHAT THE F.B.L.A. did last Friday after school? Yep ... .they had their 398,475th candy sale this year. - o- SORRY TO MENTION it but semester tests DO start next week. Actually they already have started for some of us. In speech, for instance, there's a little thing called the semester speech. It must consume 20 to 30 minutes' time and can be about any topic. Most students put in more time on the speech than they would if it was a written exam. - o - WHERE WERE YOU on New Year's Eve ? We were at the show. The wlerdest thing took place. It was about midnight and when we looked around there was a whole bunch of kids standing in the aisle. Just don't understand. You'd think every- body'd be tired at that time of the night after all those pre- parties. Could you provide the answer to this puzzle. Buckwheat ? We saw YOU at the show, - o- WATCH YOUR STEP on the way to hot lunch at noon. Not so much because of the slippery ice-packed sidewalks, but because you may get run down by three starving lads as they race through the line. I mean you just don't get in the way of Bobby Farnham, Tom Claude and Bolder. - o - WHILE I'M ON THE subject of hot lunch, we had goulash for seconds most of last week. That's funny .... the last time we'd had goulash for firsts was about a month ago. Surplus ? - o- HE FINALLY DID IT. Coach Christie finally changed the routine for his sixth period gym class. They have been going to Bryant every day to play basketball. Wen, with the aid of the energetic wrestlers, the class is now learning the fundamentals of the grappling sport. Later there's going to be a little tournament with winners in various weight classes. Never thought we'd be on a wrestling mat after the grade school program, but It should be an interesting deal. - o- Pupil: "After the rain falls, when does it come up again?" Our science teacher: "In dew time, my boy, in dew time." - o- NOW THAT THE Christmas layoff is over we know one lad that will be feeling good about the resumption of school. Vern Cole will be out to win as intra- murals get under way. Also, providing there is no more hanky panky, the rough, tough Warriors should be participating in boys' intramurals again. This team was one of the two that were suspended for unnecessary roughness in a pre-Christmas contest. We wonder how the Warriors will fare after the long vacation .... team Captain Chris Conn will probably whip his boys into shape. - o - THE LATEST development on the main drag; a "no smoking" sign in Michael's Recreation Center. Did you know that it only costs a nickel per song in the juke box at Michael's? Ex-Resident Of Seneca Rites Dec. 31 SENECA - Funeral services were held Saturday, Dec. 31, at Grundy Center, for a former Senecan, Henry Lange, 59, who suffered a fatal heart attack at his home as he was sitting down to the evening meal on Wednesday.
