ACTION AT A.H.S. BY ESTEBAN EVER TAKEN ACLOSElookat page 216 in the marketing class book? Observant Dave Ludwig noticed an interesting item about one of Mr. Palmer's ancestors. Crammed in among the many antique advertisement in a reproduction from "Harper's Weekly" is an ad for the sale of 15,000 acres of land in Kossuth County, Iowa, by 0. E. Palmer. We are told that this gentleman was the prominent grandfather of our own history instructor. Amazing .... some of the most interesting things are found in some of the least expected places. - o - IT WAS NO DAY FOR school. The radio blared off the area school closings caused by the blowing snow. But at Algona High School the students whipped from one class to another without the slightest worry about the weather outside. Sure it was below zero and you couldn't see 50 yards in front of you, but if school was scheduled, the students wouldn't miss a minute of it. At 2:30 on this fine day, it was announced before a bewildered assembly that nobody was going anywhera .... out of town, that is. The result was a "first" for A. H. S. with about 600 farm kids finding shelter with relatives or friends in town. It was January 16th — semester test study time. It was no day for school. - o - "AND IT'S GOOD I" yells Smokey into the mtke. The reception could have been better, but the action on channel 5 was great the night of Friday the 13th. With Smokey Barr frantically following the action of the basketball game, a group of viewers watched a TV in the auditorium as an attempt to handle the overflow crowds created at each athletic event. It would probably be a lot easier to cover a wrestling meet with a monitor camera.... and it would undoubtedly be better in color, but nobody beats Smokey at sportscasting t - o - DURING SIXTH PERIOD study hall last week we noticed a, few of the boys in the back of the room were holding their aims. They appeared to be in some sort of agony. Then, we became afflicted with this strange dull pain in the shoulder. After recovering from the initial shock, the only person we noticed was Mike Dreyer briskly retreating to his seat. HHHHM24MMMMM. Right there, fella. - o- STUDENTS WERE ISSUED second semester schedule cards Monday as the school year began its turn down the home stretch. Report cards are to be issued Wednesday, Jan. 25. - o - F. B. L. A. MEMBERS voted for their queen candidates last week. Three girls will be selected for the Sweetheart contest with the queen to be chosen at the ann'oal F. B. L. A. dance around Valentine's Day. ONE PURCHASE FROM the D.E.C.A. Bookfair has some very astonishing predictions in it. The book is "A Gift of Prophecy". In it, an extremely religious woman, Jeane Dixon, "sees" the future. For example, she predicts that Russia will be the first nation to put men on the moon; she says that 1967 will be a year of grave national peril for America; and she forsees a Republican victory at the polls in 1968. She predicted Kennedy's assasination and other similar events, so it makes you wonder. - o - WADDAYAKNOW! A big campaign is on to illustrate the conditions of our school. We've seen a few of the pictures taken by the Camera Club memlers and they're choice. In one, about 30 guys are packed into the shower down in the locker- room. Other shots give views of the study hall, hot lunch room and hallways. Will the Class of '70 be the first to graduate from the new high school ? - o- Father: "Well, son, how are your marks ?* Son: They're under water." Father: "What do you mean, under water ?" Son: "Below C level." - o - Famous Last Line (if I may): "Well, if I called the wrong number, why did you answer the phone ?"
