HOW IT FEELS TO BE A SENIOR
How does it feel to be e senior--it feels like a dy-
ing of thirst when you suddenly come to a nice, cold,
sparkling spring. 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.

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
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.

His thoughts on the first day of school:
NOh boy, oh boy, yam I big! Didja see the look in that
freshman's eyes when he asked me where the journalism room was?
Guess he could tell I knew what to do around here. Hey, what's
this comin'! Gosh, it's a senior--guess I'll kinda stroll over
in the other direction. Hunph, passed in front of me, did he?
Well, if I thought for a minute that he did that on purpose,
why, I'd ------- W
His thoughts after nine weeks of school:
NOh, yeah, I remember now--those things they call exams.
Uh-huh, I know we had 'em last year. Say, I wouldn't want any-
body to hear me say it, but I don't know as I'd mind bein' a
freshman again. Their exams are a snap and I'll bet these soph-
omores' ain't so funny. Anyway, I'm glad I'm not a senior--bet
theirs are plenty tough. Hope that swab of a senior that-keeps
passing right smack in front of me flunks flatter'n a pancake!!
Would I laugh. Heh, heh.N
His thoughts on initiation day:
UAh, here comes a freshman. Oh, yeah, it's one of those
library pests, too. Will I fix him! Hope I get a swat at him
tonight at the initiation party. Course, when I

His thoughts on the last day of school:
nGee, here 'tis the last
day of school. You know I hate to
admit it, but they're some of those seniors that I was heginnin'
to kinda like--not very many of them, course, but some. Well,
guess there isn't any danger 'bout me gettin' promoted, but I
don't know whether I wanna be A junior or not. You hafta work
pretty herd, and besides they raise the clcss duts, I think.
Anyway, every junior I ever saw thought he was justa little too
big to suit me. But just take the sophomores, we don't think
we're so big. We're not green like the freshmen and not sophis-
ticated like the seniors either--no sires--WE'RE AN OUTSTANDING

HOW IT FEELS TO BE A FRESHMAN
We entered high school, a bunch of very scared children,
and experienced the usual difficulties in finding our rooms and
study hall seats. 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,
looking at us
We thought it

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.
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-
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,
but from what
we've heard, the higher you go the better gets.
And we're headed for the top!

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.

VOCATICNAL HUGE ECONOMICS
Vocational Home Economics was introduced into Festus High
School this veer.
Non-vocational hone economics usually includes cooking and
sewing. 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
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.

HISTGRY OF BIOLOGY
Biology has been taught in this school only two years and
although the equipment is limited it has worked itself into a
very interesting class.
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.

WSo's Your Old Antiquen
Because of the recent trend of furniture to antiques, Fes-
tus High selected for its one-act play HSo's Your Old Antique.N
This play was presented in the Jefferson County one-act play
festival held at Festus on February l7.
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.

The Festus High School orchestra was put into the curricu-
lvm of the school this year. 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-

Limburger cheese is a type of food we are all well
ed with whether we have eaten it or not. 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
After the cheese is made it is allowed to age for a consid-
erable length of timeg this brings out the very best
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
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
frequently be accused of Nhalitosisn but think with pride that
you are a member of the nGreatJLimburger Society of American and

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.

KThis is the prize-winning story in THE SPO?UESNAN'S :annual
short story contest. It was written by Mary Nell Bloomer, ia
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-
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
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.

DEATH BY BANQUET
Oh, seniors of next year, take heed
'Twas you who put me 'heath these weeds
You gave a banquet in pomp and state
My adventures after that I can't relate,
The food was prepared with style and care
But with me it did not fare
So when you sit at your banquet ball
Remember me and try to recall,
nHere lies Grace Canepa, a senior dear
Who sleeps in peace with nothing to fear.n
THE IQWNFALT OF GRACE II
When I was but a youngster,
I had many queer and strange dreams.
I dreamed that someday I would like
To become wealthy and famous.
Alas! I hit upon a grand and glorious career!
Why not be a parachute jumper?
O wonderful, bright and happy dreams!
I could see my name in big headlines
uGrace Sieli breaks women records in parachute jumping.H
Well, to make a long story short
I chanced to become a parachute jumper.
The first two jumps were not so bad.
Did this third jump make my dreams come true?
Well, I can't say it did and I can't say it didn't.
For there was my name in large headlines in all the largest
NGrace Sieli breaks--neck.H
l Grace Sieli.
IF THE CAUSE OF IEAHNING
Here I lie broken hearted
Dead from English IV which I hadn't started
While taking this grand and glorious course
I recited so much it made me hoarse
As I lay in this square thing with its top
Into my mind something has peeped
All the While I hunger for meet and knife
I think of English IV which ended my life.
Oh God, fif there is a Godl,
Have mercy on my sould! fif I have a soull.
I was a pirate boldg
I sailed the biiny dceps
In Search ef gold and ships to plunder,
Much treasure did I win
And many ships did sink
And fame had come to me. '
Aye, and proof of that I haveg
The Governor on yonder shore
A price upon my head did set
And one sad-day, alas,
My neck was decorated by a rope.
I owned a braid new Packard.
One day, to sea what it could do,
I shoved the throttle to the floor,
Amay I whizzed, the telegraph poles looked like
A picket fence and I was tearing down the road,
Down a hill and around a curve,
And on to the railroad treckag
But, alas for me, a train get in my tray. '
Funeral services were held Friday at 3 p.m.

And no diploma does appear.

SUMMER AND WINTER
The birds are singing in tha
Working without a fight
They build their nests with
straw and leaves
And go to sleep at night.
The daisies spread out in tha r
in the sun they shine.
The daisies have'd sweet-perfume
In the warm summer time
But that is in the summer time,
When the birds,build thefrnnosts
And dr the sun the dstsies shine.
At night they'eo to rest.
Then old man winter shows his
And calls a frigid blast
To chase the daisies back to bed
The birds down south--and fast.
SPRING IS HERE
The robin in the tree top high
Proolaims that spring is here
The kites, like birds, soar in
the sky '
The azure sky is clear.
The balmy breezes feel like down
And tell the flow'rs to wake
They open their sleepy eyes and
We smell perfume they make.'
