Univbrsity High F. F. A. Agriculture class placed I3th in the dairy judging contest out of the 63 schools that entered. The contest was held at Russellville, Ark.- Hard-Working Students Express Opinions Everyone has the privilege of expressing his opinion, so four students have given their opinions on "What is the greatest improvement that could be made in U.H.S.-" Tho»'»» Mtlrs: "I would like to have shorter class periods, and more school activities." M»rj HUM: "The greatest improvement would be for the sophomore girls to quit saying 'primarily', 'with reference to' ·basically', and 'for example'". Learthur Fields: "The greatest improvement that-1 can think ol is shorter physics periods, shorter algebra periods, longer phys. cd. periods, very little English, no history, and school dismissed at 3:00 o'clock. Lull Mae iJHVson: "I think the students of U.H.S. need a place to buy hot lunches besides the Student Union, and I'd prefer more time between periods." We appreciate these students giving their opinions, and although some of them could be a little more-- uh--practical, we say again--everyone has the privilege of expressing his opinion. Ah, Spring At Last! Yes, we have a deep sincere feeling that spring is here. At least we.hope it H! As we notice the (love) bugs covering the earth and the green sprouts of grass, we are made to wonder if there are not students of U. H. S. who have symptoms of this glorious season. Let's just pretend that no one is watching, and we are using a mysterious eye to find out some, of the things Lhat are really happening around here. O.K.? First, we find some of the freshman girls eating lunch on the campus Jawn, in front of Peabody. Wanda Speck has just finished eating when a friend walks up and says, "Let's go for a walk." Oh, that is Bob Lewis, isn't il? As they stroll over the campus, we hear the chimes peal out, "Too Young", but for some unknown reason they never seem to hear the beautiful music. Next, we see Braxton Mairs and John Art'erburn who, we suppose, have just fallen in love with newspaper writing. Seemingly, one is staring at an opposite building and is wondering what special interest is going on there. The other, usually half asleep, is walking up and down the halls just hoping that "The Traveler" is finished before the deadline. As we wander into a country section near Winslow, whom do we find but Alice liasmussen and Doris Campbell. What are they doing? Well, well, they are enthusiastically catching butterflies and -beetle bugs which will be used as specimens in'biology class the next day. All the while, breezes through the trees whisper. "Spring is here, Spring is here." Presently, everyone disappears from sight, and as we once again enter our regular routine, still there is a sensation down deep inside that reminds us that spring is wonclerful and even I must surely have a mild case of "Spring Fever." »_____ What's Wrong Girls What seems to be wrong with the junior-senior girls lately? They come limping W the ha "' carrying^5 With their left arm. £l» ·* ·» EMms to be out «···** ·'"« the physical education, classes h a v e been taking up bowling. Some very amusing incidents have taken .place down at the bowling alley the last few weeks. Patsy Fincher and Nita Faye Tate decided they would tr.v sliding down the alley on their noses. They never seem to rer.-.ember to turn loose of the ball at the right time. Maybe the girls will get back to normal since we have finished the activity. The girls seem to enjoy bowling, and I'm sure they learned a great deal about it. Meet Me Spring April At The Frolic 25 H You Ask M e . . . Do .you plan to attend »he University of Arkansas? It's about Lime for seniors to begin thinking about it. We have but 29 more days-of school. Those who plan to increase their knowledge should start planning their future schooling now. There is very little use of going on to school if you are undecided aboui what to do. It would be a waste of time and money. However, today the.person with a college education has the brightest future. He can get jobs where others cannot, just because he has more schooling. People with a college education, are in demand all over the world. If you have not as yet decided what you plan to major in when you attend the University, you' can get any member of the school faculty to help you. Remember, your future depends upon your knowledge. As Ben Franklin said, "Never put off until tomorrow what you can do today." Senior Scrapbook Two seniors who step into the spotlight are Lula Mae Lawson and Alice Rasmussen. Lula Mae is a two-year student in U.H.S. She transferred from Kansas City Central High. She has been In the University High mixed chorus both years she hts been here.

Alice Ann Rasmussen, a transfer student from Greenland High, is a one-year student of U.H.S. Alice is very artistic and has lakin one semester of art this year. She also shows skill in the sports played in physical education. Alice plans In go to college in Texas after graduation. Traveler's Tracks "If the gravitational forces of the earth were to cease, the earth and all that is on the earth would be thrown out into space and destroyed,' said Mr. Lee, the physics teacher. "My goodness!" exclaimed Dallas Hale, wonderingly, "probably be a dust storm, too, wouldn't there!" ! * * * And speaking of physics class, we're glaw there's ONE student in there with intellectual curiosity. Dean ffisdale is still wondering where the west and east poles of a magnet are! * * * In Mixed Chorus, Miss McHugh announced that each person would have to bring 25 cents to cover all expenses for the music clinic to be held at West Fork. Quickly, Freddie Blackwell held out a nickel and replied, "I'll pay mine on the installment plan, a nickel now and a nickel a month till school's out." Oh, year? Be at the party.
