DID SOMEONE SAV SOMETHIN'? | Cardinal's C h i r p s ] Uittdly Th« Univtnity Hljfc Journalism Club A farewell party was given in honor of Curry Newport at the home nf Keith Broccard on highway 45, January 31. Curry has moved to Texas, whore he , will make his home. The group presented him with a gift. ' An assembly on Nurse Recruitment was presented. January 30 during the eight o'clock period. Four nurses representing St. Edwards, .Sparks, Baptist, and Veteran's Hospitals gave.informa- tion on their respective hospitals. A representative from tse Jos- tcn Co. was present at a special senior meeting on the f i f t h of February,! to discuss graduation announcements. New prices were given nnd the class voted on the announcement they will order. The complete amounl of orders and money musl be given to Miss Graham by March the first The ten o'clock physical education section lost three boys this week Dean Tisdale, Afton Fisher, and Dallas Hale. They have been transferred to the ten o'clock section of history. Other changes to take place in Phy. Ed. this semester are the new practice leathers: Mr. Fishel, Mr. Smith, Mr. Marshall, and Mr. Phillips. All of Ihe boys like them, and they will make good instructors. The American History classes are now studying current events. They are choosing topics concerning Irucc talks, stale news, in- surreclions, etc. The students are keeping a daily diary in their notebooks. They also are hunting cartoons, pictures anri clippings for the notebooks. Miss Gridcr has new clerical worker this semester. Her. name is Mona Belle McNutt. The high school students helping are: Patsy Fincher, Mary Evans, Donna Weathers, and Braxton Mairs. The students arc glad to see three new magazines this year. They are Saturday Evening Post, Field and Stream, and Holiday. There has been a drop in attendance the past two weeks because of flu. The University High mixed chorus class is continuing their work on a minstrel show. The date for this appearance ras not been established. If You Ask Me The f i n a l exams and everything that goes with them are behind cs. Now we can relax and quit slud-ying. Or can we? Remember what happened last semester? Most of us had to cram and cram hard for exams. If we study all during the semester, reviewing for semester tests is a relatively simple matter. Are we. then, going to relax our studying and let our grades lake their course? Let's not. Let's make some new semester resolutions and keep them. Let's get on the ball and study. There may be students smarter than we are, but if we do our best, that's all t h a t can r i g h t f u l l y be expected of us. So let's do ocr best. There is nothing worse than a "don't care" person. Mr. Widder, the director of University High School band, is trying to start the new semester off right by getting a few more students. He wants students who are interested in the flute and the drums because these spots are open. The band will have a few assemblies this semester. Phy. Ed. Clossej Start New Units The girls' physical education classes are just finishing up units in basketball. The teachers for the juniors and seniors are:" Pat 1 Weiss and J u a n i t a V/alcrs. They are planning to take up badminton soon after they finish the basketball unit. The freshman and sophomore teachers are. Carolyn Brady and Jerry Waddill. They are planning" to take up stunts and tumbling next. The freshman-sophomore class is also studying pro- "How does he know 1 stepped out on him last night? Well, whoever the 'sad sack' - i s that told him, he should be careful of being called a tattle tale." And so goes the conversation among the girls during the lunch hour in the old Enslish room, usually carried on at the top of their voices. One wonders if things of such personal interest wouldn't be in better taste if voices were lowered to a more confidential pitch. Although mishaps often occur while a contest as to who hits the wastebasket first is in session, the girls find it very amusing. -It is amazing--the noise they make-and more amazing that such sweet, innocent-looking girls could practice such untidy habits. Lunch papers are tossed carelessly in ihe direction of an over-flowing wastebasket, and pop and coke bottles arc hurled with terrific speed in the same general direction. Yes, girls, we realize you need to supply yourself wholesome entertainment, and here's hopir.g you don't forget this: there arc often people "behind the scenes," and your conduct doesn't exactly recommend you. Cupid's Helpers Record History "Fools names like fools faces, always seen in public places," so the saying goes. A quick look at the table tops and window sills will reveal the "fools" of U.' H. S. Engrnved in the table and desk tops are the many romances of today and past years. On the English room table Is found the quotation: "Give me liberty or give me true love. Take the liberty! "Strangely enough this famous quote bears no signature. As v/e look on farther, we find the initials P. S.-F. S. Could these initials stand for Peggy Smith and Frank Shuler? There are many more initials connected by these plus signs, hut the o w n e r s - a r e unidcnUfiedT It isn't so much that we mind knowing about these little romances, but it the foolish ones would just express their emotions on paper, and not on the table tops, we would find our composition work less full of holes when we hand it in. Let's boost our U.H.S. Cardinals. lection of food in health. They are planning to take trips to a meat- packing plant, a bakery, and canning factory in the near future. From The Cardinals Cage By John Arttrburn It's the last five sc:onds of the game; the Cardinals are losing; their hearts are low; there is no spiri*. left in them. Why arc they suffering such defeat? There arc reasons that we might do well to consider. First, they neither have time nor place Tor adequate practice. ,Tre Kazorbacks practice at the Field House after school, and at night the Inira-Mural teams occupy it. Thus the Cardinals can only practice, at the short noon period. There are ways that might be planned to relieve this situation. If the boys themselves were really enthusiastic, they could come early in the morning and get in two hours of practice before school. They might even get permission from Mr. Cross to use the 8 o'clock regulai study period lor practice. A second reason for the team's discouragement is perhaps that they feel they haven't the support of the student body. If more students and teachers w o u l j turn out to the games, the Cardinals would play with more pep and spirit. So-o-o, let's remembt; r that the Cardinals represent 1 U. K. S., and let's do all we can to help them to success. Senior Scrapbook A slender, brown-eyed senior by the name of Darliene Steelc has been roaming the halls of U. H. S. for four years. She came to University High from Greenland. Darliene is Social Chan-man of F. H. A. and has been a member of that organization for four years. She has also been a member of mixed Chorus for four years and Mixed Chorus for four years and She plans to enter Nurses' Training after graduation. Another four-year student of U. H. S. is tall, blond- Braxton Mairs. He came here after finishing grade school in Oklahoma City. Braxton plays basketball for the Cardinals and is News Editor for the Inkslingcrs. He was a member of F. F. A. for three years. His popularity among the seniors is attested by .the fact that they chose him as their president for this year. Braxton is planning' to attend the University of Arkansas. Traveler's Tracks Miss Greene, calling on the two-o'clock history class for oral current events, asked if she had missed .anyone. John Arterburn popped out with, "Yes, you missed Learthur, Miss Greene." Miss Greene replied with tolerant smile, "Of course I missed him; he's absent". Henry Krnnenberg noticed the door moving back and forth in the biology class. "Come on in, girls", he called loudly. Mr. Cross walked in, and Henry faded into the shadows. James Wilson was relating his dreams to several fellow-students. "You know what, The funniest thing happened," he said, "I dreamed last night that I was awake, and when I woke up, I was asleep." Maybe you need to sec a psychiatrisl, James. Twenty^One Students Make Honor Roll Twenty-one s t u d e n t s were plated on the honor roll at the end of the fall semester. From the senior class, three students made the required number of points, and the junior, sophomore, and freshmen classes lied with six students each. .A grade average of 4.0 or above is the requirement for being placed on the honor roll. The three seniors making the required grade were: Ola Hayes, Lou Lawson, Sylvia Sruler. The juniors were: Don Barrett, Bobbie Eldredgc, Emma Cilfoy, Marva Kirsch, Cliffie McCurley, and Donna Weathers. The sophomores were: Tommy Glenn, Waren Hughes, Paula Kroncnburg, Rcma Rankin, Lennis Shultz, and Jo Ann Webb. The freshmen making the required number of points were: Margaret Boyd, Gaylyn Hall, Billie Lou Lacy, Phillip Mace, Wanda Major, and Rita Phillips. Donna Weathers; Paula Kronenburg, and Rema Rankin attained a straight "A" average. 1951 Graduates Make Progress A survey 'of the occupations of IT. H. S. 1951 graduates shows that u large number ol them attend the University of Arkansas, while a majority of students have either married, enlisted in the armed forces, or are employed in Fayetleville. Several students who are continuing their pursuit o' knowledge .t the U. of A..arc: Ed Fay, Dick Rnthrock, Barbara Martin, Effie Ledford,.George Ferguson and Bob Callen. Pat Sacco is attending college in New Orleans. Jack Hcfley and David Mitchell, patriotic lads, 1 are in the Navy, and Dave French is enlisted in the Army. ' Several students, growing industrious after graduation, have secured employment both at home and-abroad. Belly Joyce Clark is working in the Agriculture building on the campus. Mary Tunstill and Betty June Gage arc cm- ployed at the Bell Telephone Company. Ollie Prince and David Johnson prefer jobs that involve traveling, for Ollie drives a moving van, and David has been seen delivering campus mail. Adrain Gregg and Brian Cosand are also employed here in Fayetteville. Jewel Bynum decided · upon a career as housewife, and it is rumored that Anne McGuire will follow in her steps shortly. Roberta Eades must have given them the idea, for she has been married ever since the beginning of her senior year and is now employed at Adam's Flower Shop. Pat Nardin and Mary Lou Tucker pulled up roots and moved 1o Texas and California respectively. All the 1951 graduates who go unmentioned here are, we hope, making progress in the fields they have chosen. Valentine Party Planned . By F.F.A. And F.H.A. Clubs The University High F. H. A. and F. F. A. clubs are planning a Valentine party to be held in the Agriculture building. The party will be held February 15, because there are so many other activities on Valentine's Day. The home economics supervisor, Mrs. Margaret Thompson, and husband, and the agriculture supervisor, Dr. Shoptou, and wife will be invited. The home economics and agriculture 'practice teachers and their husbands and wives. Mr. Cross and wife, Mr. Davenport and wife will also be invited. The F. F. A. club has elected a queen, and the F. H. A. club has elected a king. Their names will .be announced on the night of the party, and there will be a ceremony of crowning. Remmel Says Accounting For Spending Needed Russcllville, Ark. - (/!) - Lilllc Rock's Republican mayor, Trail Remmel, thinks the federal gov- ernment should account for every dollar it spends. Spcakins at a London Day GOP dinner here last night, Remmel said: "The public has a right to expect t h a t the expenditures of government arc carefully considered and made only when necessary; that every dollar is accounted PRIVATE LIFE OF BUCK for." He said corruption in public office is one of the basic reasons the country needs a new national administration. Remmel also said that the most honored men of the past were those "who put their public duties above their private interests." He said A b r a h a m Lincoln was one of those men. Comedian's Remarks Not Funny To Guests Las Vegas, Nev.-OT-Comedian Ben Blue invited his long-time friends, Jane Russell and her football slar husband Bob Waterfield, to te his guests at a night spot where he was appearing. But his quips about Miss Russell's curves didn't go over with the Water- fields. One report said Waterfield stalked Blue after the show, grabbed him by his coat lapels and threatened to smash him 1o the floor. Blue and Miss Russell later denied this. Waterfield could not be reached for comment. "This has all been greatly exaggerated " Miss Russell said. "We just got" up and left after the show. After all these years I'm getting hardened to such remarks." KM* o «IUt UM taw-- re»« Ikt TIME*
