Under the leadership of Gordon Abshire, editor, Opal Gaston, assistant editor and the advisor, Mrs. Frances Purkhiser, the staff members planned page arrange- ment, prepared student art work, and wrote copy. Because of a generous S300 contribution from the Buzz Saw proceeds from advertising, the Pilgrim was published again this year without advertising. Other income is gained through the sale of pages to organizations, the selling of grade school pictures on a commission basis, and the sale of annuals. no fl A i The "Buzz saw" received an A11-State S ' if at the tenth annual Idaho high school jdpmgnalismacbgi llml Q . ference at Moscow March 23-2h, Q lrlrlnqlhlll eeThe conference,e held on the U, of I.

Our library is a busy place from early in the morning before classes take up until last thing in the afternoon when teachers gather after school to compare notes on the day's activities. Even the noon hour finds students there reading the newspapers and recent magazines or studying. Approximately two hundred books have been accessioned and put on the shelves this year under the direction of Mr. Don Carpenter. This brings the total number of books to approximately 2600. The library also subscribes to 23 national periodicals. Fourteen student librarians receive half a credit for working one hour each day in the library. The librarian's duties include typing and filing cards, checking books in and out, preparing books for the shelf, mending and cataloging books. HO OR SOCIETY X br ..

M JORETTES Connie Dymoke Loraine Griffin Jeanette Nelson Evelyn Parton l The Senior Band of New Plymouth High School started the year off with a bang by playing at the Football Jamboree held the first part of September in Parma. Then followed a very successful season with the band marching and playing during the half- times of several of the home games. The maiorettes also performed for these games accompanied by the band. With football season out of the way, the pep band, comprised of the senior band members, were with the basketball boys during every home game and also played for the majorettes when they had the floor during the half-times. When the District Tournament came around, the band jour- neyed to Fruitland where they played two nights. After the District Championship was won and our boys went to the State Tournament at Lewiston, the pep band was determined to follow. After raising sufficient funds, they left in cars for Lewiston, and played for two night games. May ll the S.R.V. Music Clinic was held in Emmett. This was attended by the band where they learned much during sectional rehearsals. Along came the Music Festival held in Caldwell on April l2-l3-l4. The ratings received were 3 in concert playing and 3 in sight-reading. A spring Concert combined with the Mixed Chorus and Speech Play was held on May TO.
