department. Students seeking to keep up with the world events enroll in his geography classes
for a course as up to the minute as today,s headlines! .... Anxious to help the high school keep

rent events. Her interest in youth and their problems is not limited to schooltime ....
A new divan for a play, a new flat for the set-MR. ROY LANDON and his workshop boys
are ready to oblige. Mr. Landon is always ready to don his uniform and join the band, or to
don his swimming suit and instruct future Red Cross Life Savers and swimmers .... Dance
programs, posters, announcements, tickets, even our Budget all come rolling off the presses in
the print shop with MR. ROY DAMBERG in charge. Sponsoring cheerleading is another respon-
sibility of Mr. Damberg .... Successful student apprentices are proof of the valuable training
provided in MR. THOMAs BROOKING,S shop classes. Mr. Brooking is sponsor of the Student
Activity Association, the board that brings you football, basketball, music, drama, the Budget,

Wm W. I. 7. S.
As if building a championship basketball team
isn't enough of a job for one man, COACH
GERALD PHILLIPS also directs the entire ath-
letic program and builds high our school morale,
"Build your bodies as well as your minds!" is
Mr. Phillips' motto as he puts future servicemen
through rigorous schedules .... 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!"
. . . . "If I could swim and dive half that well!"
say aquatic maids watching MRS. BETTY
YAPI' go through her paces. 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 .... The "power behind the throne" of
our football eleven this year was MR. C. C.
VAN IDYKE, our new athletic coach. He not
only did a splendid job coaching our team to
victory, but directed wrestling and track, and
helped develop a rigorous physical education
program for those boys who are going into the
W'ith courses in journalism and sophomore

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! Several faculty meetings were
supplemented fto everyone's approvalj with
luncheons served under the supervision of Mrs.
