Young ENERALLY known for the cheery salutation, "Good morning," with which he daily greets sleepy students over the sound system, is Principal Verne M. Young, affectionately known as the "King," Often associated With unheralded visits to various classrooms, problem pupils who make almost daily visits to his office and signing requisi- tions for everything from athletic equipment to typing paper, he has, in reality, many more important duties, which include determining the adminis- trative and educational policies of the high school. eight Leonard A.Steger OUNDING out his second year as superintendent of the Ames public school system, Leonard A. Steger firmly established a reputation as a leader in progressive education and civic proj- ects through his sponsorship of the new adult education program, occupational courses and outstanding public forums. School Board AINTAINIXG high educational standards despite rising costs and supply shortages is no easy job in any school system. Tl1e Ames Public Schools were no exception, for, despite the rela- tively small number of pupils, the war brought many problems to be solved by the Board of Education. However, guided by president XV. H. Meeker, a veteran of thirty-one years' service to the school system, the board was able to perform its regular func- tions and to carry out emergency pro- grams. Hiram Munn, well-known busi- nessman, was chosen treasurer of the board. Jovial David Edwardsg Dr. TV. G. lvlurray, college professor, friendly N. J. "Sandy" Brintnallg and Dr. O. L. Thorburn, young eye, ear, nose and I X throat specialist, were the other mem- bers. The secretary, Frank B. Howell, was appointed by the board, but was not a meniber. The Board of Education appro- priated all money for the maintenance of school property, for the purchase of necessary supplies a11d materials a11d for the salaries of the teaching and ad- ministrative staffs. The group held regular monthly meetings, and special meetings were called as they were needed. The four standing committees into which the board was divided were Buildings and Grounds, Finance, Sup- plies and Purchasing, and Teachers. Each member serves as chairman of one and as a member of another. Supt. L. A. Steger, Dr. O. L. Thorburn, Mr. David Edwards, Prof. W. H, Meeker, Mr. N. J. Brintnall, Dr. W. G. Murray, Mr. Frank B.

Al-- though awaited with fear and trem- bling, the "needle-sticking" proved to be a relatively painless process, and no students found their wounds to be mor- tal. Those showing positive reactions were given low-cost chest X-rays to deter- mine the presence and progress of the disease. The purpose of the program was to detect early symptoms of tuber- culosis and thus safeguard both unsus- pecting victims and classmates. Dr. W. B. Armstrong, giving time from his private practice to be the school physician, and Mrs. Sadie Dempsey supervised the unusually outstanding program of making the young people of Ames as physically lit as possible. Mrs. Dempsey replaced Miss Henrietta Gron- lid, who left January 1 after thirteen years of service as Ames public school nurse to fly over thirteen states as as- sistant in the mid-area office of the American Red Cross. Following a precedent set in previous years, more than 2,200 young people in the first eight grades were given a physical checkup, while all twelve grades took time out from regular schoolwork to have their molars in- spected. A constant bugbear to students was the invariably forgotten rule requiring all those who were absent because of ill- ness for more than three successive days to receive permission from Dr. Arm- strong or Mrs. Dempsey in order to re- turn to school. To aid those who could not otherwise aiord needed medica.l attention, the health oiice purchased glasses and paid for tonsil and dental work out of one of its special funds. fourteen 'A' Although Dr. Arrnstrong still looks skeptical, Mrs. Dempsey writes out the ex- cuse necessary to get Marilyn back into class. ENTRAL cog in bustling Ames High is the office, reception room for Mr. Young's inner sanctum and clearing house for everything from lost articles and teachers' mail to report cards. Pleasant ruler of this domain, who doubles as Mr. Youngls secretary, is Mrs, Trimble, more generally known as Rowena, whose duties include giving official approval to all passes, approv- ing, or disapproving, of all excuses for absence or tardies and supervising the office training of advanced commercial students. These thirty girls mastered office procedure while making such harrow- High i School Office ir Rowena i' Ruth and Pat make sure that Erma does the job right. -k Well, you see, I was tardy be- cause- if Death Row or, Waiting to see Mr. Young fnote eager expressionsb. ing mistakes as pressing the general dis- missal bell instead of Mr. Young's pri- vate buzzer. One of the bright notes among their daily tasks Was the gather- ing up of attendance slips, which some- times yielded such diverse items as gro- cery lists and love notes. Other respon- sibilities include delivering passes and memoranda to tl1e teachers, taking tele- phone calls and distributing the numer- ous seventh period slips. Other commercial students spent tense hours taking dictation from Mr. Young or Mr. Steger, helping Miss Schmidt in the junior high office or cut- ting programs and running off stencils in the commercial oiice. fifteen Student Council Tor Row: R.

Grant ' ITH national defense duties head- ing an already imposing list of projects, the Student Council undertook an ambitious program of accomplish- ments for the year. Ames High's student governing body sponsored the Victory Book Campaign, which netted 1,500 books for the armed forces, the sale of Defense Savings Stamps in the school and high pressure salesnianship for the Red Cross benefit basketball game with Mason City. The council was divided into six standing committees for the more effi- cient handling of business. In addition to the council inembers, each class had one representative on every committee. Duties of the committees included plan-A ning the midyear and matinee dances sixteen and the open house, determining the eli- gibility of students to receive awards, arranging for assemblies, publicizing school events and supervising the lost and found. Acting as host for the annual State Leadership Conference held in April at Iowa State College, the council sent out invitations and arranged for visitors? housing acconnnodations, entertain- 111G1lJE and meals. First semester officers were Earl Feldman, Floyd Bender, Rosemary Taylor, and Jerry Galligan. The sec- ond semester group chose Bruce Wie1'- son, Ed Carty, Harriet Breckenridge, and Jean McClelland. Pulling the strings for this student legislature was adviser Miss Eva YVhitc. Student Treasurers URING tl1e past nine months, over 313,000, tl1e largest amount of money taken in during any one year, flowed safely in and out of Ames High 's -coffers, thanks to tl1e efforts of the stu- dent treasurers. YVhen an emaciated, harried-looking individual was seen tottering through the halls, chances were good that it was a student treasurer making the rounds of those who must sign his requisition. Not only did the rules require his own insigniiicant name on the dotted line, but to conform with Ames High 's elab- orate system of checks and double checks he also had to secure those of his sponsor and Mr. Young. This accom- plished, general treasurer Miss Mary McNally made out a check for the amount specified on the requisition, after which the recipient was required to initial it, one copy being kept by the student treasurer and the other by Miss McNally. The student treasurer, somewhat wearied by the performance of this gigantic feat, very often mistook a 3 for an 8. But, since the duplicate books kept by the student treasurer and the general treasurer were checked once a month, the few errors made were readi- ly corrected. Those activities which had no visible means of support were helped by or- ganizations showing a profit for the previous year. Tor Row: A. Paulson, J. Galligan, A. Hausrath, L. Kester, D.

Stewart seventeen Fire Squad Y DOING practically everything except pushing students out of thc windows or throwing them down the sta.irs, the Fire Squad came within one- tenth of a second of its goal of sixty sec- onds for ai fire drill, thus establishing a new all time record. These hall monitors, whose duties in tl1e school roughly parallel those of traffic cops in a city, devoted most of their time during the year to eliminat- ing confusion in the halls. In line with the effort to prepare for the possibility of air raids, this group took on added responsibility of making arrangements for just this kind of an eventuality. Even during the first dark, sleep-in- viting mornings of VVar Time, these boys, who Wear small orange badges to identify them, were at their posts more or less promptly at 8:15 and again at 12 :45 each day. Two members were on duty at the northeast and southwest doors at 8 and again at 12 :30. Because such hall patrolling definitely cramped the style of students the comparative se- clusion of the west hall was popular with many. Each Friday noon the twenty-one Fire Squad members 1net with their sponsor, Miss Lelah Spatz, and their chief, Leland Dudley, to discuss thorny problems that were always arising, and to get the new assigmnent of posts for the next week. Thor Ronningen served the group as assistant chief during the Vear. Tor Row: R. Taylor, B. Rood, H. Richardson, J. Buchanan, I. Spratt, J. Harlan, T. Ronningen, W. Reed SECOND Row: B. Nelsen, F.

Paine eighteen 2 l Senior Class AY back in September, 1939, the doors of Ames High swung open to admit the new building's first group of noisy, inipertinent sophomores. Lit- tle noticed by upper classmen, but vast- ly important to the newcomers, were such landmarks as Browne Otopalik's orange and black victory shoes, the un- beaten sophomore basketball team, and Ray Byrnes, "varsity man" and class hero. The loss of Peggy Skerry and Mary Lou YVright was balanced by the addition of such now indispensable class members as Phil Armstrong, Bonnie Clausen, Dick Fye, Ginger Halstead and Pat Hovde. Juniors now, and beginning to take a more prominent part in school activi- ties, the group carried on its organized work under the direction of the Junior Executive Council, composed of Presi- dent John Rice, Vice-president Jack Pinney, Secretary Frances Kerekes, Treasurer Herb Gilkey, and Ray Byrnes and Dean Dixon. Tl1e council's year was cliniaxed May 1 by the customary prom held in honor of the seniors at the Memorial Union. The funds so neces- sary to the success of any social event came .from the highly profitable junior class play, 4'The Late Christopher Bean." Lila Mae Hummel was the heroine of the l1our when she mastered the leading role in three days and gave Tor Row: B. Otopalik, M. Ballard, J. Pinney, B. Wierson, E. Feldman S1-:comm Row: E. Hixon, R.

Byrnes w t'lU61Lfjlj a flawless performance on opening 11ight. Other juniors held the spotlight for a time. Ruth Midgorden won the local Americanism essay contest, and Mary Elizabeth Lush got honorable mention in the national contest. Frances Friley showed her domestic prowess when she journeyed to Chicago to bake cherry pies in another national competition. Then came the biggest year of allg they were seniors A-1. Being the "big- sl1ots" gave tl1e1n dignity at last. This time they were snapped into line by Phil Armstrong, president, Lloyd Kester, vice presidentg Ray Byrnes, secretaryg and lVilma Geiger, treasurer. Already there were those whose fame had spread beyond the confines of the school. Debaters Bob Dilts, lVilma Gei- ger, David Lush and Lois Stewart re- turned. from the finals of the state tour- nament with a new title for a school al- ready familiar with champion teams in other fields. Replacing rationed sugar with honey, Mary Elizabeth Lush 1'eigned as national "Cherry Pie Queen" and labored for weeks to keep up with the resulting deluge of fan mail. For the first time tl1e Little Cyclone football team having played all confer- ence opponents finished the season unde- feated and in possession of another title. Again a conference title fell to the con- quering basketball squad. The cagers were prevented from annexing the su- preme honor when Nevada. defeated them in the sub-state tournament and kept them from the finals. The national emergency found Ames High sponsoring the sale of defense stamps and bonds. Each Thursday morning pennies were collected from generous students for the purchase of a. bond. Five hundred dollars was do- nated to the Red Cross ambulance fund from the sale of tickets to the benefit basketball game with Mason City. Defense work claimed two of the most important members of the facility when Miss Lunsford, Pep Club sponsor a.nd P. E. instructor, was called to duty in Abilene, Texas, a11d Miss Gronlid, watchful school nurse, joined the Red Cross staff in St. Louis. One of the highlights of every senior 's career was "unlaXing" to the music of the rejuvenated Ames High Swingsters Cnow the Rhythm Clubl at the regular matinee dances. The orchestra. has grown to include nine members, six of them seniors. For the mid-year dance the Basket Ball, a king and queen were chosen in an exciting all-school election. The regal throne was shared by Ray Byrnes and Dona Sauvaing Bob Allen furnished the music. As spring approached, the future loomed larger on the horizon and ca- reers became an important topic of dis- cussion. Speeches by well-known voca- tional authorities fea.tured the week set aside for seniors to survey the problem of choosing a life work. Most helpful was the practical experience gained during spring vacation when many seniors worked without pay at local business houses to get a foretaste of those occupations which seemed inter- esting to them. And so at last one day in J une, with a lingering backward glance at halls and classrooms which could never quite lose the imprint of 175 boisterous personali- ties, a taller, soberer class of 1942 faced a perilous, but challenging future. 7 t-weniy-one RUSSELL ALDERMAN: Hi-Y 1, 2, 3 . . .

McDonald, Junior Class JUNIOR is one Who has lost the uncertainty of a scared sophomore, but has 11ot yet attained the high degree of sophistication represented by a se- nior. The class of '43, although handi- capped from the girls' point of View by a ratio of 101 girls to '78 boys, still had the distinction of accomplishing more than most of its predecessors. Diving into politics for the first time, the juniors gave Bob Peterson the title of Commander-in-chief, Meg Quist the vice presidency, a11d Jean McDonald the secretary's post. Darlene Roberg handled the finances. Other members of the Junior Executive Council were Mary Dodds, Don Griffen, Glenn Riggs, Jim Sutherland and Paul Vance. thirty-sin: After adding generously to the gray hairs of Sponsors Miss Helen Hadish and Miss Fern Hartsook, the class came through with flying colors to set a new record by making more money from its play than any other class in high school history. Much credit was due to the fine Work of the business committee, whose job it was to dispose of tickets. They did. The publicity committee generously of- fered the citizens of Ames a chance to get in on a good thing with advertising in almost every conceivable place. The play, 'tJ une Mad," proved worthy of all this advance ballyhoo. Vir- ginia Kulovv and Milton Potee, star ticket salesmen with a record of 34 apiece, headed a Well-chosen cast in- cluding Justine Brintnall, Ted Garfield, John Harlan, Ted Hartman, Tom Maney, Polly Pride, Ann Turner, Paul Vance and Annabelle Vernon. Ingloriously dirtying their hands and k11ees backstage, the ineinbers of the stage crew deserved more eredit than they got. It was their job to move and paint all scenery and to ring sirens and play records when sueh sound effects were ealled for. Bringing further glory to the class were Gloria Lauer and Barbara J ack- son, whose inusieal talent gave them a tie for a Julliard scholarship. The warlike spirit of tl1e nation had its repercussions in Ames High, when disagreeinent over the location of the Junior-Senior Frolie reached surpris- ingly belligerent proportions. Although the juniors overwheliningly favored the new proposal to make the dance truly a high school affair by holding it in the sehool gym, conservative seniors voted by a sn1all margin for the traditional prom in Great Hall of the Memorial Union and, as guests of honor, were al- lowed to have their way. A year of hard work, eliinaxed by the prom May 7, left the juniors looking forward to the day when, as lordly se- niors, they, too, might have the privi- lege of amusing themselves at the ex- pense of a younger class. t -k It's lucky Bernice isnlt scared oi the dark, for being the drum major at. night football games is no light job. i' Ted may be awed by his proximi- ty to Tommy Harmon, but Bus looks as if he'd rather be that close to a. good bed. ir Wonder what Polly said to make Ted look so sheepish in this scene from the class play? 'k Tom seems to have incurred the wrath of two beautiful ladies. thirty-se-ve-n Junior Class UPPER PICTURE. ToP Row: S. Arnold, J. Buchanan, A. Caine, J. Galvin, F. Ballard, G. Bourne. MIDDLE Row: K.

Realizing that the main purpose of a yearbook is to please the students who will read it now and reminisce over it in years to come, emphasis was put on typical, informal pictures and Writeups. Heading the staff was Frances "Ed" Kerekes, who divided time between working on the annual and working on the business manager for more money. Dirty jobs such as mounting pictures and checking identifications were dished out to assistant. editors Polly Pride and Meg Quist. - p Nickey Lindstrom, business manager, and her two assistants, Mary Dodds and John Harlan, became adept at bal- ancing the books as well as curbing the editorial staff,s more extravagant de- sires. The smooth-tongued, fast talk- ing advertising manager, Browne Oto- palik, assisted by Darleen Barnes and Jerry Galligan, set a new record for amount of advertising sold. Organization pictures and write-ups were taken care of by Anne Gilman and boss Herbert Gilkey, Who threatened to sue for a new pair of shoes after many trips to photographers to check identi- iications. Dona Sauvain, senior editor, kept herself busily occupied-with boy- friend Byrnes-while Tom Maney and Martha Coover, junior and sophomore editors, wrote and rewrote copy until the final deadline.

Most notable achievement of the first semester class was the notorious per- sonality sketch of 'fa little bit of Pana- ma," which began as a formal protest against burdensome assignments and developed into a gala occasion, featur- ing efficient assembly line production under which each paragraph was Writ- ten by a different group of students and carbon copies of the net results were turned in, earning an "F" for each class member. Important social events for both classes were the scrapbook parties held regularly each six Weeks just before journalism scrapbooks were due, where paste, scissors, carbon paper and ice cream mingled in a confused, but pleas- ant medley.

Highlight of the course for Keith Berry, Herb Gilkey, Al Hausrath, Frances Kerekes, Mary Elizabeth Lush, Bob Stafford and Lois Stewart was the Iowa High School Press Association convention early in October. Most pro- lific writer of thc year was Browne Oto- palik, who produced almost 20 feet of printed copy in five weeks. Bob Dilts set a new record by mentioning his own name six times in one story. Problem child IVayne Cunningham cheerfully ignored deadlines, while pioneers Herb Grilkey and Bob Stafford sought to pop- ularize the "dance and duck" system. I11 addition to publishing the lVf'b, the journalism classes inade an exten- sive study of propaganda, and the sec- ond semester course also included a unit on advertising. VVould-be journalists were reminded of the importance of accuracy when Cubs and seniors heard the llfeb dis- sected by Rodney Fox, Iowa State Col- lege journalism instructor, and Daily Sfudmzt staff members John Rigg and Ronald Ross. Cubs' Club, an organization for ju- nior and sophomore journalists, put out the I-Vela between semesters and dug up news to plug the gaps which a small sec- ond semester class could not fill. Best friends and severest critics of the Cubs were the TVcb Staff niembers, who alter- nately tore hair over their editorializ- ing tendencies and rejoiced over their cleverness and originality.

The combined Girls' Glee Clubs pre- sented their annual Christmas candle- light service for the high school. They also sang for the businessmen's Christ- mas luncheon at the Hotel Sheldon- Munn. After tl1e candlelight service a few members of all four vocal groups en- joyed a.

As war time tire priorities caught up with the bus companies, it was neces- sary to make the Fort Dodge trip via tl1e "dinky" route, k11ow11 in more elite classes as the Fort Dodge, Des Moines, and Southern Interurban. This mode of travel was a new and novel method to most of Ames High 's musicians. Special training was given during the year to those showing unusual ability and desiring to do solo work or to be members of the small vocal groups. A class in fundamentals was held for those wishing to broaden their knowledge and understanding of music interpretation and composition. fifty-three Mixed Chorus TOP Row: Cunningham, Iverson, DeLaHunt, Reed, Larson, Tripp, Pinney, Perry, Shadle, Spicer, D.

AMES 8, DOVVLING 0 Sloshing through a sea of mud and water, Ames High's grid team opened its 1941 season by Submerging Dowling's Irislnnen. Quarterback Ed Farni led the way as he blocked a punt for a safe- ty and then slithered over the goal with the soggy pigskin for a touchdown. The Ames linemen, reputedly "green," turned up "black" along the entire for- ward wall as they battled on the slip- pery turf.

Anns 13, BOONE 6 The never-say-die Little Cyclones grasped undisputed possession of the conference crown by outiighting Boone's powerful Toreadors in the tra- ditional Armistice Day struggle. After a scoreless first half Ames suddenly came back in the third quarter as Ray Byrnes dashed seventy-five yards for a touchdown and Bob Nicholson pounced on a blocked punt seconds later for an- other marker. Second Team Fo MES Hi gh's second teain, featuring one of its greatest baekiields in years battled through a successful 1941 season to pile up four victories in a iive ganie span. The sophoniores got- their season oif to a tlying start by knocking off both the Marslialltown Bobcats and Jefferson by 7-0 scores. After falling before Boone's first teani reserves 18-7, they swept back by sinashing East Des Moines seconds 26-0 and capped off their campaign by walloping Nevada's Cubs -L5-6. One of the year's highlights was the iLQ?lll1,S adept use of the 'tSally Rand' reverse, a deceptive running play ein- otball ploying 2111 unprotected sweep around end, from which halfback Fred Black sprinted across the goal for seven touch- downs in two successive ganies.

The Little Cyclones rolled along a 10 game league season with eight wins to seize undisputed possession of the Cen- tral Iowa Conference crown. Although losing to Grinnell and Boone in loop play, the Ames quintet took the title by showing ability to come through in the clutches with narrow margins of vic- tory. In tournament play the Orange and Black blasted Boone's hopes in the sec- tional meet with a 31-30 decision. After subduing Jefferson 34-23 in the district meet the Little Cyclones fell before Ne- vada in the iinals. Although they had been defeated in tournament competi- seventy-two tion, a new Iowa High School Athletic Association ruling permitted the Little Cyclones to advance to the sub-state tourney, where they slid by Newton 33-28 in an overtime before taking a semi-inal round defeat, again at the hands of smooth-working Nevada. As a contribution to the nation's war effort, the Little Cyclones encountered Mason City 's Mohawks in a pair of Red Cross Wai' Relief matches which netted a total donation of 5750, S250 of which was received from the game played in Mason City and S500 from the contest at Ames. By ramming in six rapid-tire points during a torrid last minute of play, the Mohawks nipped the Little Cy- clones 30-28 in the first meeting, only to have the tables turned in the second clash as Ames came through with a 25- 19 win. Forward Lloyd Kester dominated tl1e year's scoring as he dumped in a 233 point total, a new sehool scoring record whieh ahnost doubled that of Ray Byrnes, speedy defensive star, who counted 120 for second.

The offensive record of the squad showed a 28 point average per ganie against opponents' 26.

Included in tl1is category are hardworking athletic trainers, money jingling ticket sellers, ticket takers, and ushers. At least one trainer can be found hauling tackli11g dunnnies, taping sprained ankles, adniinistering minor iirst aid treatment, putting up new bas- ketball nets, checking out towels and keeping records of each athlete's daily performance. Long after the team 1116111- bers have gone l1o1ne to observe training hours, these faithful boys are still busy caring for all the athletic equipment of the school. The ticket salesmen aided, or perhaps guarded, by faculty menibers, and the ushers, whose duty it was to see that the reserved sections did not become gen- eral admission sections, were obliged to gulp down hasty suppers in order to re- port for duty a half hour before the gates were opened.

A. sponsor, decided in favor of the first and joined the Unit- ed States Army as director of the Rec- reational Department of the station hospital at Camp Barkeley, Abilene, Texas. Although the sudden depart- ure of Miss Lunsford left the girls minus an active sponsor, they carried on in the best G. A. A. tradition. Founded for the express beneit of high school girls, the main purpose of the Girls, Athletic Association is to en- able each individual to improve physi- cally, mentally, morally and socially. To obtain the privilege of paying her membership dues, a girl must have at least 100 points to her credit. The or- ganization offers three awards, the minor "A," which is awarded to mem- bers securing a 500 point total, the major "A," which requires 1,000 points, and the coveted orange and black pillow top, ,given for additional work in the Association. Points must be earned in five divisions-leadership, organized activities, unorganized activities, skill tests and health charts.

From their first day as sophomores to their last as seniors, most students realized that they could take advantage of their opportunities o11ly by hard work. Although a eertain amount of the omnipresent 'CI don lt care" atti- tude was evident, the general feeling in most elasses was one of putting forth ef- fort. Students were fortunate however to be studying in a progressive school where teachers made a special effort to make classes interesting as well as in- formative. How to lose ten thousand dollars in less than two months is among the easier things mastered by economies students. Given imaginary money by Miss OX- borrow, the students invested it in stocks and bonds. By daily study of the market reports, they bought and sold, but paid no brokers' fees. A few class members made money, but most of them lost quite heavily. Miss Hadish, alias Mlle. Hadish, has now added another alias, Senorita. Ha- ish, to her list. Because of the good neighbor policy and the war in Europe, much emphasis has been placed on at Tino and Bob learn in Boys' Home Ec Class what maid's night out will be like. -k A problem in metal, or is it mental, work seems to be confronting Clare-ne and Dorothy. t Bob gets a. little nearer to 10094, efficiency by using his tongue, too. -A' Paul concentrates on a rather complex piece of ma- ehinery. l Spanish, so much in fact that next year French will be eoinpletely dropped from Ames Hi gh's eurrieuluni. Holding hands, however much frowned upon in other parts of the building, is not taboo in Mr. I1il1'11lS,S physics elasses. However, it is all in the interests of seienee. Disillusioning as this may seein, it is really quite a thrill to feel the eleetrie charge from a Ley- de11 Jar pass through the elassg it might even be called a shocking experience. If the women take over the world completely instead of just eonversation- ally, two groups of Ames High students will be prepared. Able to do11 aprons and ruin good food with the best of eooks are boy's home economies stu- dents. Not only do they master the eul- inary arts, but they also learn how to buy their own clothing. Also prepared will be those who took girl's industrial arts. lVhile learning how to drive a nail, saw wood and the surest way of breaking a. finger nail while doing it, the girls turn out lamps, bread boards, metal plates and numer- ous other artieles. However, it's far from aeeidentalg eaeh project must be planned and ai seale drawing made be- fore work begins.

ROBABLY the only students in Ames who were paid for going to school, seniors enrolled in the new 4'Di- versiiied Occupations" course, spon- sored by Miss Fern Hartsook, had a chance to learn business techniques from the ground up while their employ- ers paid ten cents an hour for the privi- lege of instructing them. Business men were given an oppor- tunity to make their mark on Johnnie 's report card, since students received full credit toward high school graduation for Working two hours each school day in the stores and offices of the cooper- ating firms.
