Being a senior, inflicts feelings of hap piness and sorrow--happiness when you think that you are a dignified senior and sadness when you think that soon you will be graduated. Seniors have the feelingsfof pride, dig- nity, responsibility, and independence. Still, until your senior year in school, expense of school-life is smell. On your senior year, you not only have class dues, but there are rings to buy, caps and gowns to rent, a gift to be bought for the school, snd e commence- ment speaker to pay. Cf course, these are not all individual expenses. To balance these expenses is .that supreme feeling you have and the meny sctivities in which you have the most fun of your entire life. , The above are statements that my classmates, or the class of '36, have made. Now, I cen add e few idees. Contrary to the opinion of the underclassmen, the at- titude of e senior is not that of dignity but rather, naturelness. Of course, by the time one has become a sen- ior, he has acquired some dignity. But the senior realizes that he is Won topn and there is no acting to be done. The last feeling that we seniors have is that of nat- ural sadness. Sad--on commencement night, because we must leeve school. And so, The seniors of '56 say sdieu, Sad, tho' happy, we hate to leeve you, l We shell always love deer F.H.S. We will dc our best to win in each quest. 5 - "' ' x Q. vw- .

D W HOW IT FEELS TO BE A JUNIOR To be a junior is to feel Njust like a feather in the breeze, floating aimlessly, and enjoying our Ngolden yearn of high school to the fullest. 'Unlike the seniors who try to put on a lot 'of airs and act very dignified, we go through our school days in a carefree man- ner having very few worries to darken our horizon. The junior year is when a student sees school life from a very pleasant angle. After being beaten and snubbed for two years it's just like a drowning man being pulled out of the water. I Of course our life isn't all sunshine. We also have our headaches. The biggest menace that hengs.over us is the junior senior banquet. We work our fingers to the bone just to give those hunger seniors a meal. It's hard to take when we think that we are giving the seniors a big Wfeedu in return for the beatings they gave us when me were Wfreshiesn but after all it's worth it to get rid of them. Wf?'re only kiddin', seniors.l Also this type of work, selling candy to raise money for the ban- quet, that goes along with it, is Very helpful in later life. Another point to consider is that when you are a junior it is the first year you are allowed to take any commercial sub- jects, public speaking, etc. These subjects had previously been closed to us as freshmen and sophomores. We juniors sometimes think of our pest years in high school as the Wabusedn freshmen, sophisticated sophomore, and the year tc come when we shall be dignified seniors but we would rather be happy-go-lucky juniors. Our greatest ambition is tc step up next year and show the pefple what a nreuln senior class is like. nn: 'P' S va 'lmm lvj 'Wilbur Backer' 94111. us 9153 mnem- ' 11 i QP' 'N I f ,I Bob Grlnln Lucgf mae Xuff W 'IW . jixch ' 6190 I If f H 'fi C'l 'Na hfmats QPF 17u9w q , 11 N I "'f+1- Banda l1l I 5am 9,1115 Sumor C1455 'ddjfgd 1.

It was a terrible letdown, because as eighth graders the grade pupils looked up to us. But, then, saying nWe're freshmenn sounds so much more dignified than saying, nWe're eighth looking at us We thought it heads in the senior custom. graders.W It seemed that the high students were and thinking up ways of making life more terrible. was funny the way the seniors went by with their air, but later We found out it was just an old lt made us feel Very young at the first of the year when we saw a senior, but later we just passed them and didn't pay much attention to them. Came the initiationi For weeks the sophomores talked about what they were going to do to us, and when the time came, they did just what 'they said they would, and a little more. Our motto became, Ulf they can dish it out, we can take it.W The one thing that revived us was the thought of what We'd do to the freshmen next year. After that, we sometimes almost forgot We were freshmen, until some upperclassman would suddenly bring us back to earth. One thing about us though, the upperclassmen may run over us, but we're always able to get up and Walk away. Although might think. we're called green, we're not as green as you For instance, we know how to talk Mr. Pulliam out of a 10,000 word theme, even if we can't all spell his name cor- rectly. Why, we can think up better excuses and faster ones than any other class in school. l Wall we've never been sophomores, juniors, or seniors, 7 but from what we've heard, the higher you go the better gets.

I walked into the study hall and immediately found a nice com- fortable seat. After a while I noticed a senior asking for per- mission to speak.

I When Mr. Stewart's frog died, Mr. Ulbricht said that it was probably an eighth grader who did it. Also when pencil marks were found on the walls, the oight grade promptly received the blame for it. But in spite of these things, I liked the eighth grade in most ways. The eighth grade is at the high school and this made me more acquainted nith the high school students and their activities. I soon learned the names of the basketball players and other athletes. There were also many activity periods and this was a great change from the routine of the grade school. At the high school you are allowed to do many more things, and this was one feature I liked best. Yes, the eighth grade has many hard knocks but I jcyfully look forward to the coming year when I will then become a green freshmen.

In addition, vocational home economics, which is a two- year course, includes home nursing, family relationships, home- management, child care and training, clothing selection and buy- ing, food buying, dietetics, and the related subjects of science and art. During the year the girls not only have had guests at small dinners and lunchecns, but they have entertained the faculty members and the board of education at s large dinner. Home projects form another important unit of home economics A home project is practicing at home what you have learned in classes. By home projects the girl betters herself in that type of work. Home projects for related work, as it is also called,D are important in home economics. Camp Gravois w ich is located near Versailles, Missouri, is closely connected with home project work. With this place of recreation in mind, every future home-maker tries to do more outstanding work in projects than her fellow classmate. Several prominent ladies of this town select the girls who have made most progress in homo projects. The home economics girls have organized a Home Economics Club in F.H.S. and a chapter of WFuturc Home Makers of Missourin The purpose of the latter is to give recognition to outstanding home economics girls, while the purpose of the Home Economics Club is social as well as educational.

Some interesting collections, including a catalog of native wood, have been made. The class has also a collection of snakes including King snakes, checxen snakes, water snakes, garter snakes, and grass snakes. Terrariums in which to Keep them have also been made by the students. Probably the most important fact of all is that the F.H.S.

JOURNALISM ' Two years ago, it was decided by the board of education that journalism should be added to the curriculum of Festus High School. Miss Dorothy Rigdon was selected to teach the class, As soon as the class was started, arrangements wer issue a free school paper each month. As a sideline to the making of the school paper, dents published the Festus Press, a weekly town paper, for one week both last year and this. This year a larger pap r was issued each month. Each stu- dent who received these papers, paid twenty-five cents for the nine copies. This year's class was selected from a large group of pupils who applied for the course at the beginning of the year. High scholarship, especially in English work, and special abilities in art, commercial work and the like were necessary before a student could qualify for journalism. It was not until the middle of this term that THE SPOKESMAN HAH paper by the National Mimeograph Exchange. although still in its infancy, the journalism a regular yearbook for the first time. job of putting out THE SPGKESMAN and PIPER? in- e made to the Stu- was rated as an This year, class has issued The entire cluding all mimeograph work, was done by the student staff under the supervision of Miss Rigdon.

On .November 22, 1955, F.H.S. presented its annual all- school play, uCock Robin,W a mystery written by Philip Barry and Elmer Rice. NCock Robinu was a play within a play. The scene was laid in an 18th century grog shop. This made necessary the use of the effective costuming of that period. As a result of the rarity of such productions in high school, the entertainment was the first real financial success since the economic upset of 1929. The net proceeds was 3l7O.5B, more than has been made from an all-school play for several years. The skill with which each part was handled showed the indi- vidual direction of Miss Nelle Lee Jenkinson. Miss Jenkinson added another to her many successes when she presented nCocK Ro- binn.

The play, written by Clare Kummer, set forth, the trials and troubles of a poor, young, happily married, handsome, antique dealer. Miss Nelle Lee Jenkinson was the directress.

Before this time, a group of srhool students hal a practice one evening a week, and orches- tra was not a regular course with standard credit. This year the orchestra has progressed exceedingly well. In the lattel part of the year, the instrumental department of the school sponsored a program the proceeds of which were used , to aid in buying instruments. With the help of the school llboard,'they were able to buy two French horns, a cello, a bass violin, and oboe, and a viola. The instrumental division of the music department is under the direction of Mr. O. R. Peterson, ' HISTORY or Music Since 1927, the music department of! Festus High School has been under the supervision of Mrs. L. B. Edmonds, who also teaches music and art in the Festus grade school. X Every year the department presents as a vested choir, Han- del's Messiah as their Christmas Cantata. This is always looked forward to with great anticipation. . An annual event and the biggest sensation created by the music class is the cabaret and fashion show. The cabaret is copied and produced like a Broadway revue. There is a master of ceremonies, who introduces the numbers. The students help to select the song hits of the season and offer their suggestions for dances. Groups also arrange numbers to semi-classical pieces, Comedy skits are also featured. After the program there is a fashion show, which is sponsored by local dry goods merchants. Girls are chosen from .the class to model the latest ufashions. - ' During the last semester the music students enter the con- tests which are held in Cape Girardeau and Columbia, Mo. ' The groups that attended the contests this year consisted of a girls' glee club, mixed' chorus, girls' trio, mixed quar- tette, girls' quartctte, and a madrigal consisting of five p9.l"tSo H I ,,.

And with their consent, you sailed forth after the coveted slippers. Q After explaining to the surprised clerk just exactly the requirements, you were uorritted to see the shoe.

True, your legs did look rather like two sticks, very straight and thin sticks,--hut,--Well, you were old enough to have your dresses lengthened anyway, especially with those slippers. They felt tight around tho toes--but one could get used to thot. They looked at least six inches higher. Everyone must be star- ing at them.

Six blocks--perhaps one should work up to such things gradually. There really must be some- thing wrong. The rest of the way, you wondered if your foot would actually break in two, or if it only felt that way. Cf course, you had to put on brave smile when you reached home but- -you knew,--oh yes, you knew.

Its chief bid is the npleasantn odor that arises from it. Limburger cheese sometimes comes in round balls type we are most associated with comes in sticks just ter. acquaint for fame but the like but After the cheese is made it is allowed to age for a consid- erable length of timeg this brings out the very best Wscentu and taste. The longer the cheese Wagesn the better thensmelln, the better the smell, likewise, with the cheese. The art of eating this cheese is acquired only after long practice. The first step is to be able to master the Nodorn without having your storach turn a couple of Nflipflopsng a very good help is to pinch the nostrils of the nose together. The us- ual way of eating it is to spread the cheese on a piece cf bread white or rye, take three deep breaths and while still hblding your breath Wgulpn the sandwich down. Sometimes you don't have to hold yowr breath, the cheese will take care of that. When you have become an naddictn to this Ncheesen you may frequently be accused of Nhalitosisn but think with pride that you are a member of the nGreatJLimburger Society of American and . ..- I that you can nTake itn. -q f'?p."' f W-'THC' Tff ,we l K V' I , rr, iz, L fs ,wi , .-. ,.

HE FOUND A MASTER fSuggested by a News Flash Heard Over the Radio.1 Mr. Braddet was slowly driving the boulevard. Sudden- ly the elderly gentleman stopped his car and glanced up the street he had just traversed. Yes, it was a little boy, crying as if his heart was broken while at his heels trotted a huge Newfoundland dog. The small boy was unmistakably lost. Mr. Braddet climbed out of his car and awaited the child. WWhat is your name, sonny?N asked the sympathetic gentleman. The sobbing reply was, WI don't know.W All queries brought the same results. After a moment of indecision, Mr. Eraddet conceived the idea of delivering the child and his pet to the local police stationz Taking the child by the hand he started to lift him into the car, but with a low hostile growl the dog leaped forward with bared teeth checking the movement. After a certain amount of coaxing, the dog per- mitted the lad to be placed in the car but all the while the dog sat beside him straight and alert with the hair around his throat and on his back bristling. Upon perceiving the child's eyes were heavy with sleep and crying, the chief decided to see to his physical comfort. Food was brought but the dog would not allow the child to touch it until he, himself, had tasted it. Later kind hands started to search the lad's pockets and remove the coat. The dog jumped upon the chief, snapping at his hands. The officer hastily retreated with the child's wrap in his hand. The dog quietcd but stood stoutly before the dad. After the coat had been searched, a receipt for a purchase from a local department store was found with the name--Mr. F.H. Lane, 694 Pine Avenue, Phone No. A 1449 Pine. Thirty minutes later a worried young father burst into the room and upon seeing the lad snatched him and incoherently cried, 'Daddy's boy! Daddy's little nanln When Mr. Lane started to leave after warmly thanking the chief and Mrs Braddet, the chief asked him if he wasn't taking the dog. ' NThe dog?H questioned Mr. Lane, puzzled. nYes, the lad's pet,W the chief replied pointing to the dog lying near a vacant chair. 1 Hwhy--,N said Mr. Lane, nihat dog doesn't belong to him. He never owned a dog. I have never seen that dog before.W This unknown dog, who had attached itself to the lost child and protected him, was awarded a medal for his splendid care of the lad. Since no one claimed him, after a few weeks had pas- sed, Mr. and Mrs. Lane plus happy son, Jim, adopted him. --Jeanette Stauss.

It was written by Mary Nell Bloomer, ia seniorl. Susan awoke. She reached for Josie, her raggy doll who al- ways slept with her. She groped in the darkness. Where .Tas Josier She opened her eyes and everything looked just like the MerrymGo-Round,but when she stopped riding she Wasn't in bed at all. She was in Namma's car. Car--Daddy was coming home to-day. She sang this over a fem times. It sounded nice. When Daddy came home she and Mamma always sang and laughed. She looked up, expecting to see Daddy's eyes wiggle up at the corners when she said, NI tooked awful fine care of Mamma for you Daddy,' because she always did,but Daddy wasn't there at all and neigher was the front window of Namma's car. But then, Daddy sometimes took the window out of his bright shiny car and let the Wind blow. Daddy went away and stayed long but he always came home on the day be- fore they want to the funny big house to hear stories about a little baby who was born in a cave with cows and sheep. Susan thought about this. She wasn't sure whether she would like to live with cows and sheep or not. They might bite. Sho turned to ask mother if they would,but mother was-leaning cut of the door. Susan took her arm, but mother didn't say anything, so she must be talking over a telephone like she did at home when she told Susan to be quiet. Susan couldn't see the phone nor had she ever seen her tal on one leaning out the door like that. Any- k way, she wasn't talking, so she must be listening. Susan opened the door and slik down to the road. On stubby, toddling legs she made for the front of the car. She looked with interest at a big pole mother had pushed the car up against. She must have pushed it mighty hard against the pole, because the front of the car was all uiggled up like Daddy's eyes. She wondered if the wiggles would come out when'they started again. She laughed at this. Wculdn't Daddy's eyes wiggle then he sat the car looking sc funny. She looked down below and saw water rolling along. . She climbed back in beside the silent mother who leaned so far out of the door of the car which had lost its front Wind- shield and wiggled itself against the immovable steel girder. She asked if Aunt Jane would come home with Daddy. Next to Mamma and Daddy, she loved Aunt Jane best. Aunt Jane even let her pick the flowers in her pretty yard, but mother told her she mustn't, because the poor flowers would die. Susan wondered vaguely what Wdidn meant. She nasn't quite sure because Grandpa had died and he never came back. Susan asked mother Where he went and mother said he went 'to a beautiful, shining land where he wouldn't be sick and she cried like she didn't want him to: Susan thought he must want to go and when she told mother,mother had cried all the more so Susan never did ask about Wdidn again. Making Mother cry wasn't taking fine care of her. Mother didn't answer, so she must still be listening, or maybe she was watching the water that rolled along down below. A splash of yellow caught her fancy, and with thoughts of-- Mother chased out of her head by this new interest she hurried her uncertain legs toward it. The legs seemed even more uncer- tain than usual. Reaching the spot, she found a tangle of pret- ty yellow flowers and into that brown heed, on which there was a splotch of dark red, popped the desire to take hold and pull hard, even if the flower did go to the shining lend. It could be with Grandpa. So she stretched out Q chubby, three year old hand and grasped one of the yellow heads. The flower didn't go to the shining land. It stayed right there in her hand, and she wondered how mother ever mode such a mistake. She heard the squeel of brakes and turned to see e shiny car like Duddy's stop by Mother's car, but there were lots of shiny cars, so she picked another pretty flower. A women jump- ed from the automobile and made a funny frightened noise. It was the same kind of noise mother made when Susan had found the big glistening bleck worm. She had held one end cf the worm in each hand, end stretched him out long so he wouldn't squirm so, and she had laughed in glee when he stuck his funny little tongue out so fest it the end of her fat little fist. Mother hed said he was Q snake and would bite and that she must run if she ever sow another one. Susan wondered if the lady who jumped out of the car hed seen e snake near her mother, but then she knew that if there were e snake there, her mother would run. She stuck her finger into the velvety center of the flower and it came off all yellow. She put hor finger in her mouth to see if it tasted, but it didn't, so she pulled off one of the petals. Daddy said she was 'Daddy's beby,u and mother said she was WMamma's beby.n She wanted to be both, and they both liked thet. She bit the petal and it was bitter like medicine, so she spit it out. She looked down towards meme's cer and e man stood by it. Daddy had finally come. She was almost beside Daddy before he turned and with a queer cry, caught her up. She dropped her flowers. WDaddy,n she cried delightedly, 'I tooked fine care of Mom- ma this time.' Daddy sat down suddenly, and Aunt Jane was all funny lock- ing and holding on tight to the door of the car. 'ly poor motherless beby,' he murmured brckenly. Susan looked up at him wcnderingly. Always before he had said, 'Dad- dy's babyn end new he was saying NLother's baby.W A white car came end tock mother away. Susan slipped down from his knee end picked up her yellow flowers. Slowly and oblivious of ell else, she picked a yellow petal, bit it and spit it out.
