Well, that's what Nora Mata did and she ended up in Alton. Nora is originally from Mexico City, Mexico. Her cousin went on a student exchange from Mexico City to Kansas, so Nora followed suit and wrote tothe Inter- national Fellowship lnc. to go on an exchange. She was chosen to come to Alton. Another reason for going on the exchange was to learn English. She has classes consisting of Student Senate, art, typing, P.E. and Spanish. Nora enjoys school, in fact she said, 'l like Alton High more than anything in the United States." She could think ofnothing that she didn't like about America or Alton High, but the fact that she only speaks Spanish is a bit of a hindrance. Nora arrived in Alton on Sept. 2 from Mexico. She is staying with the Cletus Keene family. Brenda Keene is a junior at AHS.,Nora is only I5 years old, a sopho- more by our standards. However, in Mexico she is in her third year of secon- dary school. When speaking of the schools in the United States, she explained, "Some are the same, some are different. The different ones are bigger in America, with many more activities." The only activities in her school are basketball, volleyball and soccer. Soccer is a big sport in Mexico. Nora Christina Dominguez Mata came to the United States to learn English and meet new and different people. When asked if she had accomplished this yet, she responded. "Si".

The entire population of New Zealand l3,000,000l is less than the population of St. Louis. But the population of her city, Christchurch, f320,000J is eight times larger than Alton. Raewyn is taking these subjects at AHS: Interior Design, calculus, Radio!TfV., American Government and psychology. She is participating is Student Senate and AFS. Raewyn explained the difference from her school in New Zealand to AHS. "Back home we have more discipline and had to wear uniforms." Aren't you glad you don't have to wear a uniform everyday? 169

Tradesmen hammer by Shane Moore "The Fioftse that Jack built"'? No, it's the house '. Alton High's two construction trades c ses are building at Humben Road ant. :z.1hany Lane in Godfrey. Students are under the direction of Mr. Dennis Morgan, the new building trades instructor who taught last year at St. Charles, Mo. 'I he house was started last school year but didn't make it above the ground. Now, Mr. Morgan has got people working and already walls are up, the roof is on, shingles are down and the house is over half completed! The house is a ranch style, part brick and aluminum siding, on one level with a fully- extended basement underneath. There are three bedrooms, kitchen with finished wood cabinets, living room, dining room and two bathrooms. The house is fully carpeted. A two-car garage will be at- tached There are two building trades classes at the .I.B. Center. One session meets from 8- ll a.m. and the second session works from I2-3 p.m. Students are not just sitting in the class memorizing and writing about construction, they are actually out on the job doing it. Their work includes carpentry, brick- laying, plumbing and roofing. The Vocational Electricity classes. taught by Powder Puff Although the name sounds fragile, Powder Puff football is anything but. Many practice hours are put into preparation for the game. T0 the participants, the one game they get to play is as important as the boys' regular football season. The game warrants some professional referees. Mostjuniors and seniors are in favor of shelling out some money to get real referees with black and white striped uniforms. Referees are paid on tht- ncrage S30 each game. The Student Council made roughly S375 on this year's Powder Puff and Roger Smlth Mr. Don Maloney, is connecting the wiring. All of these guys who are getting experience and learning to work as a group, hope to make money in construc- tion after graduation. The building classes have many problems to overcome with their house. Vandalism is a major hazard. Vandals have torn down the walls, stolen equipment and written obscenities .Although no action has been take to stop these culprits, the class repairs the damaged property. Rain is another problem that is being worked around. When it hits, the guys work on the inside of the house or stay back at the Center and study their textbooks. Cold weather is setting in but that won't stop the work. Brush fires will be built on the worksite to provide heat for the hands to keep the hammers pounding. "lt will be a fine house and should be completed by early May," stated Mr. Morgan. 'The market price value is close to 08,000 and will be bid by the school district in June," Mr. Morgan concluded. needs pro refs game. The game would pay for the referees by itself, if the Student Council would be willing to give up some of the profit. More important than giving up money, the players would have to saciificejumping off sides, holiing and clipping on every play. A professional referee wouldn't miss a penalty. A fair game deserves fair play. The girls are gi- -ig to have to make it worth the effort of the referees. There are some sacrifices to he made. but we think it would be worthwhile. lt would eliminate some of the familiar complaints that the referees were paid off in cookies and clean up the field play.
