Sponsoring CAA and cheerleading in addition to conduct- ing gym and swimming classes are the duties of MISS RUTH SIMMS, physical education in- structor. Reading and chocolate pie are her favorites, while her theme song seems to be "Oh, Ilow I Hate to Get Up in the Morning!" . . . .

This collegiate looking member of the physical education de- partment left GHS at the end of the first semester to join her husband, who is in the Army ....

W'ith courses in journalism and sophomore Iinglish on her teaching sched'uIe, MISS MARGERY GEMMIZI. also sponsors the Budget and the Reflector. The warning "Gremlin" gives to all aspiring journalists is: "Learn what the word 'deadline' means!" .... Studying -Iulius Caesar with MISS HELEN OLSON is fun! She's so helpful to a bewildered soph who is just getting "broken in." Win her with a slice of chocolate pieg she loves it! .... To a winning smile and a friendly disposition add a pinch of spice, and the recipe is complete for MISS ALTA YOUNGBLOOD, head of the home economics department. Future home- makers seek her advice in and out of class .... Iiood makes the mana-and the proper foods help make the man a better soldier. MRS. WII.MA PILGER teaches her students how to stir in the necessary vitamins and minerals and still make tempting dishes!
