F A new plan v.'ill be put into operation in high school in a short time.' This p l a n . will -,:ve everyone j much better reason for coming to school. One of the first things to greet the students when they come early in the morning is breakfast. Instead of going to homerooms and awaiting the bell, everyone v.'ill go to the activity room where they will be served delicious breakfast and then have recreation until the first bell. After this bell they v.'ill go to their homerooms and at th: end of each period the teacher will come them. A f t e r arriving in their homerooms no sti'rient has to move until free period which comes Iwicc in the morning and twice in the afternoon, During free time a student may go to the study hall and study, the music room, the !ym and dance or play basket- Jail, the football field for Softball, ootball, or tennis.

Of course I know her. She's t h a t journaiism student who is always writing features for the paper. You know, she plans to be a writer after graduation. Put she says if she can't do that she'll try something else. Yes, that,s Sylvia, all right. Her favorite color is yel- ow, with chivalry, music, dark lair, and literature en her list of jencral likes. From her likes and icr ambition, you would guess her 'avorite pastime, reading. Sylvia's only dislikes are the colors orange and chartreuse, and "boys who try 0 confuse 3'ou in order to show off their mental superiority." Her avorite song is "Old Man River" ung- by a deep bass voice. "You don't have to tell me who 'EARL M A R I E STEWART is. She's that twirlcr with a friendly mile. You might know that her )et peeve would be unfriendly jeople, and tops on her favorite ist are band trip.- and trap-drums. Perkle's" favorite foods are amburgers and French fries, with Drivers Ed, standing first on her ubject list and "Stardust" being cr favorite song. She's going to ·ork some after school'- out and 01 married somclime this fall. Pearl has been a member of Band, Peppers, and Sophomore Guides. Sec, I told you I knew Pearl Stewart. "Who's that tall. 6'5" fellow with brown hair and blue eyes? Couldn't be anyone but Joe Coddington. Joe's a first-class rebel; his favorite song is "Dixie" and his pet peeve is "Yankees." Even his favorite food conies from the South, fried chicken. He isn't particular in his top class; h likes history of any sort. Joe's pastimes arc reading and, of course, basketball. He's served one year on deck and plans to study forestry at .he U. of A. after leaving FHS. "What made you think of WARREN RAMEY? Must be because he's just the opposite of Joe. Warren's that 5'8" senior, with curly hair, that's always tampering with radios. 1 hear he contacts amateur radio "hams" all over the ,'orlcl. He's going to sludy chemical engineering; at the U. of A., jut that's to he expected since his 'avorite class is physics. "Ramo" i stand-pat Yankee, as can be «ccn by his song, "Marching Through Georgia." His j et peeves ire people who are smart alecs 'and cats--just cats." Community Citizenship Chosen For Next Study A study of community citizen- hip has been sele · cd by the merican Government class of ayettevilln High School as' its ext project. The practice, chosen ·om those included in the Citizen- lip Education Project, is for the urpose of evaluating, community nd school citizenship. This citizenship practice h a s been divided into three types of experiences; observation, research and survey. The class was divided into three committees, each to be in charge of one part of the. practice so t h a t all three parts could be carried on simultaneously. Community observations will include observing traffic violations and the care of public and private property. . Community research will consist of facts obtained from governmental and other fgencies in the city about voting, crimes and taxes. The community survey, will include questions on citizenship responsibilities such as voting, obeying various laws and civic attitudes. In the high school the observa- lion section of the citizenship study will include observi .g obedience to the traffic and other school rules. Research, will consist of obtaining facts on attendance, care of school property, and voting in school elections. The school citizenship survey will seek to find out from the students how many participate in school activities, obey school laws, and in general live up to ther citizenship responsibilities in school.
