LP Teachers Participate In Smokeout Jennifer Ritterhouse La Porte Junior High Many teachers at LaPorte Junior High participated in the .Great American Smokeout Nov. 18. Teachers and students are prohibited from smoking on ; school grounds. Teachers are allowed to smoke in the teacher's lounge, though. The smokeout, sponsored by the American Cancer Society, was a day for smokers to quit "cold turkey" for 24 hours. The goal is to have at least one-fifth of the smokers to quit for those 24 hours and some quit for good. "You have to think of the benefits of not smoking," one teacher said. "Many lung cancer deaths are caused by smoking." THANKSGIVING With the arrival of Thanksgiving, many people think only of the closeness of the Christmas season or the good Thanksgiving dinner they are going to have. Now with the end of the holiday people forget the meaning of the word "thanksgiving" and why we celebrate.

NEWSPAPER Another issue of "The Bullpup's Tale" is out. This Thanksgiving issue, written by a seventh grade Dimensions class, went on sale for 10-cents just before the Thanksgiving holiday. When asked why the paper sold for just enough money to buy more supplies, Sandra Hammons, the Dimensions teacher, said "We wanted to keep Lhe price of the paper low enough for everyone to be able to buy one."
