2-Algena (lei.) Upper D«s Maine* Tuesday, Feb. U, ACTION WE MUST BE out of itl Another week gone by and we still don't know what the prom theme Is. How much longer can it last? - o- HKJH SCHOOL band members attended the North Central Conference band festival last Monday in Webster City. They traveled in three bases, leaving Algona at 11 o'clock in the morning. Classes were held despite the absence of these students, and homework piled up on the AHS instrumentalists. - o- WE UNDERSTAND a young man from Webster City made a good impression on the females from AHS. The star football man and all-state pick, Dave Brooks, made acquaintance with several of our senior lovelies. Rumor has it that Mr. Brooks may find his way to Gonerville (that*s capital jargon for Algona) in the near future. Sorry, I can't say who he'll be visiting. - o- LAST WEEK was the ABSOLUTE deadline for annual buyers. The weeklong hard-sell of the announcement during second period managed to persuade the remaining customers we trust?! - o- A TREMENDOUS overflow, dancing room - only crowd jammed into the annex to enjoy the romantic atmosphere of the Valentine's Dance. Crowned King was William E. Boldridge n and assuming the role of Queen was Diane Allen. The royal couple led the assemblage in a festive dance, and the Symphonettes entertained with two pleasant numbers. - o- HOWEVER outside the Ball it was rather treacherous.Thesnow was falling, the snow was blowing, and it was slippery going. We carted three couples on a freshman triple date which called for a long, adventurous trek toWhit- temore. S made one rather angry with the weatherman because it seems like it only snows on weekends. The roads are always cleared by Monday, aren't they? - o- REGARDING the long trip to Whittemore made by Esteban's taxi service . . .we sympathize with the Whittemore students that must journey to and from school each day. Twenty miles at least! - o- AHAI Who won the spirit cup? Why ... the (surprised) seniors! At the pep meeting of Februarys, Student Council President Rich Black presented this honor to the seniors ... the class of '67 comes through! Now the underclassmen are pretty well psyched out. - o- CONTESTANTS in the FBLA state typing and shorthand contest got into preliminary action last Tuesday. The local contest was held after school last Tuesday. Quite a few gals were entered in the event. THE JANUARY edition of the VOICE was issued last week. Bright spots in the paper's contents were numerous. "A Senior Protests" was the title of the article on girls' short hair. The story was signed "Poet Nauseate" but because it was an expecially clever bit of satire we hope Paul McBride won't mind oar uncovering the author's real name. Also included in the school paper were a few English n themes expressing several sophomore ideas on what the new year means to them. Tim Black, Pat Hopkins, Sue Dodds, Dave Riley, and Dean Lowman symbolized the new year in the most intelligent fashion. What ever happened to those silly, silly sophomores? - o- ALGONA'S State Champs were sent off to the Sectionals last Thursday afternoon in a special pep meeting. Champ Martin recognized the boys that will carry Algona's hopes of retaining the title as Class A champs. But, we observed (as everyone else couldn't help observing) that Thursday just isn't a day for enthusiasm. - o- PEP buses were open to any student wishing to attend the wrestling tournament last Friday. This was the first time in quite a while that the transportation was open to the whole student body. And it only cost 25? to ride. - o- THE PEP club put together another busload and traveled to Clarion Saturday night to back the Bulldog basketballers in their bid for the conference championship. WE HEAR a local lad entered a barbershop downtown, his long, flowing hair plastered along above his ears, glistening darkly in the light. He hopped into the chair and what does the barber say? "What'll it be? Haircut or just an oil change?" - o - FTA HAD its Fun Night, Monday, in the high school gym. Pep Club had its regular meeting in study hall after school, Monday, and FHA will meet this Wednesday after school in club action. - o- THE CADETTES DID get the call for a performance at the state tournament. They put on their show at the Girls' Basketball tourney in Veteran's Auditorium on March 9th. The pep band will accompany them by school bus, and they'll return the same night. - o- WE GAVE the names of the senior Cadettes last week so here is the list of underclassmen on the "team": Juniors: Cathy Chrischilles, Ruth Johnson, Debbie Kelley, Donna Fisher, Wendy Gardner, Cyndee Miller, Patti Muckey, Linda Ross, Sharon Wagner, Jane Walker and NiW Wegner. Sophomores: Kathy Buchanan, Sue Bullock, Becky Fisher, Barb Haag, Pat Hopkins, Kathy McBride, Kari Peterson, Linda Sch- lapia. Kathy Skow, Becky Tordoff, Kathy Wibben, Peggy Zit- tritsch, and Karla Sjogren. Freshmen: Marilyn Dau and Kristi Easter. Managers are Lana Bishop, Debbie Laws, and Janice Limbaugh. - o - Ray Warman, associate professor of psychology at LS.U., will speak to the student body this Wednesday. He will give us a chance to discuss current findings and issues with him. - o- "HEY, GUYS! Brenda moves into town in two weeks!" -73rd- Mr. and Mrs. George Lockwood, Larrabee, celebrated their 73rd wedding anniversary on Feb. 7. George is 92 and Ruth is 91 years young. Why? Because only Hi-lex contains tftecnf- a special formula that helps separate and keeps o'utfdirt from fabrics to give you a snowy-white wash every time Hi-lex sanitizes and deodorizes, too ... makes dozens of cleaning jobs easier and less expensive. Good reasons why you should insist on Hi-lex Premium Bleach.
