Some things to forget, and some to recall, And some just to guess at, like what happened to Paul?

What happened in those rooms we used to call "cages?" lf you'd like to remember, just look through these pages! Table Of Contents TitIePage ........... ............... Administration . .

OSTENBERG Superintendent of Schools Noted For continually trying to bring added benefits to the teachers and students of our Salina School Sys- tem, Mr. W. M. Ostenberg, Super- intendent of Schools, and Mr. W. W. Waring, Supervisor of Secondary Education, have given special at- tention this year to new ideas such as grouping by ability, revisement of courses of study, grading assistants ito allow more theme writingj , and improvements in our city teachers' salary schedule. They have taken on these programs in addition to their usual duties and the job of pushing forward our city school program of remodeling and build- ing. We realize that we are fortu- nate to have two such active adminis- trators . Our Administrators MR. W. W. WARING Supervisor of Secondary Education MRS. VELMA LINDQUIST in Lincoln. Feeling that the partial remodel- ing done to our two buildings in the past year has boosted the mo- rale of our faculty and student body, Mr. Scott and Mr. Williams have enthusiastically been busy helping map out plans For other remodeling to be done to our two buildings within the next year. The feeling of all is that the buildings' face-lifting is giving our spirits an uplifting. Assisting our principals and all of us in endless ways, are our three secretaries, Dorothy Aden, Shirley Hudson, and Velma Lindquist. Dorothy and Shirley see to the needs of Roosevelt personnel and Velma attends to Lincoln. MR. C. O. SCOTT Principal, Roosevelt Building MRS. SHIRLEY HUDSON and MRS. DOROTHY ADEN in Roosevelt. MR. A. G. WILLIAMS Ass't. Principal, Lincoln EDITH BRODINE Dean of Girls Roosevelt LII' IVA ZIMMERMAN Dean of Girls, Lincoln Deans DEAN OBERHELMAN Dean of Students Among the most appreciated improvements brought about by our remodeling program are the new private offices for Deans Brodine and Oberhelman and our school nurse. The con- venience of having their own rooms adjacent to the principal's office has enabled them to make their work more efficient and effective. The whole student body is benefiting from having better facilities for its deans and nurse. Prior to this year, our school had no facilities or room provided for a school nurse. Having a full- time nurse and a properly equipped room is a long awaited improvement. l MARGARETHA ENTZ School Nurse f is X MRS.

We have spent hours after school and had some tedious moments, but we've had fun'and enioyed our work. We hope we have been successful in our aims. Each homeroom in our school elects one representative to the student council. This group airs the ideas and complaints of the student body and acts on constructive suggestions. The group meets about once every two weeks at 8:00 A.M. in Roosevelt, room T4. Success- ful projects of the council in '60-'6l have been to distribute printed copies of the code of conduct, provide large, new waste cans, continue the se- lection of student leaders of the week, and propose the se- lection of our own school mascot and colors, and a de- finite name for our school.

Yeaaaaaa Mustangs! !', This happened to be one of the annual events that takes place at our school, the choosing of cheerleaders. Judges, selected by the P.T.A., were the following mothers: Mrs. Paul Marfice, Mrs. John Moore, Mrs. Harrison Long, Mrs. L. W. Hatton, Mrs. Frank Shelton, Mrs. Messenger, Mrs. Delbert Miller, Mrs. Alfred Mankin, and Mrs. Ralph Austin. The capable cheerleaders for this year chosen by the mothers are: Sue Hinkle, Marsha Kresge, Chris Block, Mary Ellen Evans, Rose- mary Shields and Jill Stevens. , SOMETHING OLD AND SOMETHING NEW Something old and something newg that's what it looked like when the car- penters were through. Our "old" jun- ior high received a new face-lifting this year. The effect of the new addi- tions and improvements are pleasant, encouraging, and enjoyable. The "old" study hall is now a new blue and pink library, the "old" li- brary is now a new language lab used for the Spanish classroomg and rooms eleven and twelve, the "old" democracy room and spelling room, are now a bright new art room, These are the only great changes in Lincoln. Roosevelt's changes are as follows: 'The "old" art room is now a modern new foods roomg the "old" foods room is now a bright, new library. Two classrooms were made into an attrac- tive, spacious new office. The space be- tween the cafetorium and Roosevelt is now an eighth grade shop class. There have also been a few minor changes that add to our now colorful school, such as: Some new desks and other equipment have been supplied, and some rooms have been painted. Also for the three secondary schools approximately 310,000 to 312,000 has been spent for new books. Our attractive new cheerleaders at North for 1960-61 are, left to right: Mary Ellen Evans, Chris Block, Marsha Kresge, Sue Hinkle. Rosemary Shields and J ill Stevens. TWO CONFUSED KIDS "CATCH" THREE ENGLISH TEACHERS They're cheaper by the quarter dozen, tool Eddie Graf and Jerry Brown have had a quarter of a dozen English teachers this year. During the first week of school Eddie and Jerry had three English teachers: Miss Bucknell, Miss Cloyes, and Mrs. Batten. Tuesday and Wednesday they had Miss Bucknell. Because the class was too crowded they were transferred to Miss Cloyes's room, Thursday Because she had three different subjects to prepare for, the admini- stration thought it best to have her exchange her two ninth grade classes for two eighth grade classes. So Eddie and Jerry were transferred to Mrs. Batten's room Friday. And what did you say your English teacher's name is, Eddie and Jerry. FACULTY ENJOYS WATERMELON FEED Plenty of watermelon was enjoyed by the faculty on Wednesday, Septem- ber 14, at a watermelon feed given by Mrs. Shelton and the cafeteria staff. It was held at 3:30 p. m. in the cafe- torium. The faculty had a very pleas- ant time visiting as they ate the de- licious watermelon. .i SHOP CLASS GETS I UNEXPECTED PICNIC What! Were students sitting out on the steps having a picnic on the first day of school? No. When Mr. Sack- rider's class got into the lunch room they found they had to sit on the steps behind the cafetorium. Mr. Sackrider said there were no complaints except that there were no chairs. The class ate picnic style, and everyone enjoyed it, including Mr. Sackrider. Nearly 1,160 students went through the lunch Lne the first dey of school, This was the only class which was off scheduleg therefore, it was the onl.y class that enjoyed one last summer picnic. UNDERCLASSMEN UNDERGO UNPLEASANT UNDER-SKIN TEST Tuberculin, auditory, and optical ex- aminations were given to the seventh graders at the Immanuel Lutheran Church Monday, September 26th. This is an annual affair for the seventh graders and will be repeated in the tenth grade. Mr. Scott said, "We have had tuberculin tests that have been rechecked, but no tuberculosis cases have been found." There were a small number of auditory and optical defects. These tests were given by trained nurses, aided by the PTA Mothers. NORTHERN HIGHLIGHTS Published every three weeks by the Salina Junior High North's Publica- tions class, Salina, Kansas.

TWO NEW LIBRARIES North Junior High has two new libraries this year, one in Roosevelt and one in Lincoln. The old Lincoln study hall is now the new library and the librarian is Mr. Carl Hempstead. He is here Monday, Tuesday and Friday mornings and all day Thursday. Wednesday he is not here at all. The library is quite roomy and its new chairs and tables' will seat forty students. The library is a light blue and has pink shelves. The Roosevelt Library is where the old home economics room was. It also is a bright and cheerful room. The librarian there is Miss Perry. 'She is in the library every day from eight in the morning until four in the after- noon. Among the new things in the li- braries are new books, encyclopedias, card catalogues, book trucks, Cshelves on wheelsl, tables, chairs, and circula- tion desks, OPINYUN ON LENCORTS By Jeff Rees Lencorts must go! I firmly believe that anyone possessing a lencort should wipe it off and 'throw it away so as not to offend our fair faculty. I also believe that anyone caught with a lencort should be sent to the office and pub- lished severly. A lencort is quite dan- gerous to one who cannot disentangle the cording. If you get it Thursday, you may even converse with it. So far, 114 disenuntires have been retorted so be brave. If you find one, insult a teacher immediately. Lencorts must go! Joanne Gebhardt receives free activ- ity ticket from Principal Scott for her Iucky guess. LUCKY NUMBER FOR SEVENTH GRADER IS 442 It will be free activities at North for Joanne Gebhart of the seventh grade. She guessed closest to the actual number of activity tickets sold during the two-day campaign and won one for herself. Tickets sold were 440g her guess was 442. Joanne has no formula for luck. "It was just the first number that came to my mind," she said, 'Tm glad I won something!" The contest was conducted by Principal Scott. Financial wizard- "Where under the sun does all that grocery money go that I give you?" Wife- " Stand sideways and look in the mirror." "Willie", asked his teacher, "If I take three from seven, what's the dif- ference?" To which Willie replied: "That's what I say, who cares?" YOU You are now in Junior High School, whether it be in seventh, eighth or ninth grade. If you are a seventh grader, this school system is new and different to you. You are probably used to eating your lunch at home. This year you will eat it at school. You will prob- ably not like it at first, but you will get used to it. You will have differ- ent classmates and teachers each hour.. If you get lost or need help, go to the office at Lincoln or Roosevelt. Mr. Scott, Mr. Williams or one of the sec- retaries will be glad to help you. If you are an eighth grader, congrat- ulations! You have survived the sev- enth grade. Most of you are used to this school system and you will not have much difficulty. You as eighth graders have a responsiblity to set a good example for the seventh graders. Remember you were once a seventh grader yourself. To the ninth graders go the highest congratulations. You have survived both grades. You are now grown up and actually a freshman in high school. So try to act like one. SEEN ANY STRAY PLANETS LATELY? Some of Mr. William's science pu- pils took advantage of the full moon October 5, and gathered at Parkview School for some star-gazing. Their ef- forts were fruitful, for the rings of Saturn and also four of Jupiter's moons were sighted. They had some assistance, however, because David Parker, a senior high student, brought his reflecting tele- scope, and Mr. Williams borrowed the school's refractor. The pupils who went were the fol- lowing: Jerry Suberkropp, Nancy Moore, Jerry Vance Sharrel Myers. and Rex Baker. THE CITY COMMISION VS. CATS AND DOGS By Dan Austin A few weeks ago our city fathers declared open war against cats and dogs. A proposal was made to pass an ordinance confining all dogs to the pen or leash and all cats to the house. I am neither a lover of dogs nor cats, but I do feel for the owners. Many people do not have the money or the space to build a dog pen and can't just tie a dog 'to the clothesline for 365 days out of the year and expect him to stay there! A cat is diierentg it doesn't need a pen or leash, but it does need fresh air and a place to prowl at night. All I can say now is, commence firing and watch the fur fly. FIRST EIGHTH Y-TEENS MEETING Fun and laughter could be found in the cafetorium September 15, as the first eighth grade Y-Teen meeting was held. Newcomers to Salina were introduc- ed and flowers were given to welcome them. A lot of fun was had using a pirate theme. Mrs. Lakin's fifth hour class, dressed as rough, tough pirates, sang "Sailing Over the Bounding Main." A treasure hunt was held. The eight evil pirates were: Dead Eve Miller, Long John Silver Broce, Blackhawk Rittenhouse, Old Blackbeard Ashton, Big Bill Flint Dix, Captain Kid Selby, Henry Morgan Noyce. and Fleetwood Marita Miller. The pirates were given a treasure map and after a great strug- gle managed to find the treasure chest, filled with jewels and pieces of eight Ccandyj The treasure was also shared with the other eighth grade pirates. After this fun, the girls settled down and elected their officers for this com- ing year. They are: President. Mar- ita Miller: vice-president, Connie Broce: secretary, Susan Dixg and treas- urer. Mary Ashton. The eighth grade sponsors are: Mrs. Heath. Mrs. Batten, Miss Brodine, and Miss Zimmerman. NEVER SATISFIED By Meta Adams In summer we wished that school would begin, To see what classes we would be in, And whether we'd like what teachers we got, , And whether we'd like the food or not And whether our subjects were easy or hard, And what we would get on our first report card, And whether we'd have a good team this year, And how our assemblies would appear. Well, now that school has finally begun, We just can't wait for summer fun. MR. DAHLSTEN NEW BUSINESS TEACHER Among the new and interesting tea- chers on our staff this year is Mr, Dahlsten. He teaches ninth grade gen- eral business and eighth grade science. This is his first year of teaching, but he practiced teaching last year at Salina High School, Mr. Dahlsten attended Bethany Col- lege at Lindsborg and majored in chemistry. He said he would like to get his master's and doctor's degrees. In his liesure time, he likes to play tennis. NORTH'S VICTORY SONG CTo be sung to the tune of the "Battle Hymn of the Republic"J I.

SNOOPER! Mary Ellen Evans, Why is it YOU al' ways want to yell, "Culley" when you're cheer leading? Any 51990131 reason for that? Who went to the State Fair and rode on the bullet? There's nothing wrong with riding the bullet especial- ly with your eyes shut, is there, Kalb? Why did the boy in the cafeteria tell Suzanne Wilson she needed classes? Did you tell him he was cute or some- thing? Jan, did the paper wad you threw really have money in it? Or was it a conspicious note? McAninch, you surely have some sneaky alibiesl What's this about Deanna Cowan sitting on Lewis Wliem's lap in democ- racy. Did you like that, Lewis? I wonder if Basses' take good baby pictures. By the way, how did B111 get those pictures in the first place, Diane? SEVENTH GRADE BOYS LEARN ABOUT FOOTBALL Mr. Kaye Pearce, the senior high football coach, came to the seventh grade boy's meeting on September 30. He showed them some points on play- ing the game.

This was the second game for the team. 1 Spirited members of our new Pep Club make a "cheerfull" picture. NORTH SCORES 7-0 VICTORY OVER SOUTH The kick-off by South on Tuesday, September 20, at the Salina High Ath- letic Field, opened the football season for 1960. This opening game ended with a well-earned victory for Northis ninth grade team. Earcel McCabe ran the winning touchdown and the extra point to give North a 7 to O lead in the third quar- ter. North held the lead and also made two other touchdowns. However, these were not counted because of penal- ties. "We were pretty solid on our de- fensive, but we need to work more on our offensive," said Coach Loren Burch of North about the game. NORTH CHALKS UP 14-6 VICTORY OVER SOUTH North's eighth grade team chalked up a 14 to 6 win against South on Wed- nesday, September 28, at 'Salina High Athletic Field. In the first quarter, South started the game with a touchdown giving them an early 6 to 0 lead ofver North. They didn't make the extra point, however. Then in the second quarter, North stared to rollg Norman Boswell carried the ball over for a touchdown, tying up the game. The tie was broken when he also made the extra point, giving us a 7 to 6 lead. Later, in the North, third quarter, David Page, from ran another touchdown to give us a 13-6 lead. He also made the extra point, giving us the final score of 14 to 6. After the game assistant coach Tom Pickering commented: "It was a hard fought ball game, but our boys want- very much to win!" PEP CLUB HAS BEEN ORGANIZED A new and better club has been organized this year. Anyone can be in the pep club. People in the pep club should try to learn the cheers so they can yell with the cheerleaders. If anyone wants to sit in the pep secton at the games, he or she must wear a maroon or dark colored skirt or slacks and a white blouse or a White sweater. Everyone in the pep club should re- member he is representing the school. The pep section looks much better when people aren't throwing things and leaving their seats every few min- utes. So remember your manners. It looks as if we will have a peppy year ahead! Happy cheering to every- one! LETS GET A FEW THINGS STRAIGHT By Betty Rollins We are having trouble identifying our junior high school. Ever since the new South Junior High was built, we have had trouble with the mix-up, because before that, the only junior high we had was Lincoln-Roosevelt. People can't seem to arrive on a de- cision as to whether we should call our junior high, North Junior High or Lincoln-Roosevelt Junior High, We are also having difficulties with our school colors and mascots. Because the senior high and the two junior highs have the same mascot and colors, we lose our orginality and identifi- ation. I believe we would be closer to our school and learn to have more pride and interest in it if we had in- dividual colors and mascot and a spec- ific name. f H H H H H Qb HHH H H H H H HALLOWEEN HARMLESS OR HARMF UL? Is Halloween harmless or harmful? 'This question is a difficult one. In modern times it is quite harmful, for people will soap car windows, turn over sheds, roll garbage cans down streets and do other "slick" tricks. In olden times things were quite the opposite. The entire town would build a big bon-fire and the inhabitants would sit around it and tell how they had had "experiences" with ghosts. Today police work very hard on Hal- loween. The best thing to do is to do something similar to the old-time way-throw a big party and bob for apples, play scary games, or tell ghost stories. LIGHT BULB BLOWS BOTTOM. WIEDMER BLOWS TOP During third hour, October 14, if you heard someone shout, "Head forthe bomb shelterlv or fascimile thereof, it was caused by a light bulb blowing up. In the shower room during the boy's gym class, someone in the show- ers threw water out the top. Because the water was quite cold, the light bulb literally blew up! Several boys got their feet cut. This was unnecessary and could have been avoided. Mr. Weidmer was furious! WHAT DOES SCHOOL REALLY r MEAN TO YOU? , , , Have you ever stopped to "shape up" in your mindwhat school means to you? Do you just hate to pull yourself out of that nice, warm bed in the morning and 'get dressed to come to school? Do you "sort of get sick" at the very sight of the school building itself and for this reason, cantt seem to get along too well with your teacher or classmates? Then in your minds, school is just a "drag"! Now- look at the other side ofthe story. Some children never have the chance to go to school. Instead of get- ting up and getting dressed for school, which they would like to do, they get dressed for work. When they see a school and other children playing or visiting, they long to be a part of the school and student circle. To them, an education is one of the greatest things they could have, but as far as their futures can see, never will have. gg Preparing for Halloween fun are, left to right: Ann tFide1 Castrol Payne.

OPINIONS FLOWING ON NINTH GRADE LECTURE A special assembly was held Thurs- day, October 20, for the freshmen in connection with the Saline ,County Health Education Workshop. The speaker, Mrs. Paul Whitney, of New York City, was very interesting and inspiring. A W Mrs. Whitney gave a half-hour talk on "Personality Pattern fort Youth." Her topics were: Your Potential, Your Respect and Manners for Other Peo- ple, Good Health, and Moral Develop- ment and Character. The same lec- ture was given at Salina Senior High. After the lecture, there was a dis- cussion held in the individual 'class- rooms. Some discussions were ex- tended into second hour, and as a re- sult, a few students were tardyj STUDENT COUNCIL ' 1 OFFICERS CHOSEN October 11 the Student Council met to choose this year's officers. They are as follows: President, David Taylorg first vice-president, Glen Maddoxg second vice-president, Randy Long, secretary-treasurer, Kenny Longg sev- enth grade executive member, Debbie Cushmang eighth grade executive member, Sue Tilton. No other business was discussed. WHERE THERE ARE STUDENTS THERE ARE FIRE INSPECTORS Where there is smoke, there is fire, and where there are students, there are fire inspectors. This was the case Tuesday, October 19, when the fire as- semblies were held. Mrl' McCabe started the assembly' by giving a short talk on the meaning of fire prevention week. He then introduced his col- leagues, inspectors Nicholson and Smith. A film was shown entitled "Before They Happen." It was about the job of"'a fire' "'inspector. Mr. McCabe later summarized the film which concluded the program. LET'S SETTLE:DOWN I I A By Elaine Tanner 1 After all the excitement of the first weeks 'of school-getting acquainted, football games, and o-ther school ac- tivities-one seldom realizes that the first six-weeks period is coming to a end and the grade cards are coming out. ' , H When we do realize this, it is usual- ly too late to do anything about those grades, so we just sit around and wish we had better grades. This six-weeks, why don't we pay attention in class, do our homework, and instead of wishing we had good grades, get them!

It is one of the oldest words the English-speaking people use, so everyone has had an equal chance to learn the meaning. If you are one of those who doesn't know the meaning of the word "courtesy," I wish you would take time to go to the library and look up the meaning. After the ninth grade fire assembly Tuesday, October 18, some careless stu- dent kicked one of the ninth grade English teachers on the leg. She was "sporty" enough about it to say that she knew whoever it was, didn't mean 'to do it. Even though this person didn't :mean to, he could have been courteous enough to control himself while in a crowded hall, and this wouldn't have had to happen. If you know someone who seems to be a little weak on the meaning of this word, maybe you could help him or her by "clueing him" in on the mean- ing. It is a very important word in all walks of life and I suggest you learn the word and it's meaning now. DREAMING! By Marsha Kresge As I was strolling through the halls thinking the other day, I was wonder- ing what it would be like to have a swimming pool in the gymnasium. A swimming pool would be superb, thinks I! We could have a swimming lesson every day in physical education class! The teachers could let us have a break after lunch, and the pool could be rented to people who wanted to have a party. We could have diving contests and we could have .................... Rrrring! Rrring! Huh? Oh, well, there went another dream down the drain! Definition of a bird that got caught in a lawn mower: Shredded Tweet. RULES ARE FOR OBEYING By Carol Christensen There are some people who think rules are for breaking and just for the thrill of it, see how much they can get away with. I'd like to give you an example of a classroom with no rules of any kind. Two boys in the back of the room are Indian wrestling, while two others are engaged in flipping coins. One student leaves after only about five minutes because she just doesn't feel in the mood for this course, and another entres 25 minutes late. The teacher is trying to yell over the noise of a tran- sistor which a student has brought to class. It's not safe to look up or you'll be hit by strange flying objects, main- ly erasers and paper wads. In this whole class only about three pupils are truly interested, and because of others they can't even learn. Of course, there are some people who think that this would be "the end," a "real blast!" But let me re- mind you that this society has rules which we must live under, starting now. There is not one of us that does not dream of becoming a learned, well-known, and wealthy person, but we cannot do this without an educa- tion. So if you want to be a nobody, a law-breaker, or an unplesant, un- happy, useless citizen, by all means don't pay attention to the rules, But if you want to be a decent, responsible, worthwhile person, remember that rules are for obeying, and that they are essential in this modern day. STUDENT COUNCIL OFF TO A START A quorum was not present at the student council meeting, Monday, Oc- tober 17, since the ninth grade mem- bers were not informed of the change in days, from Tuesday to Monday. This mix-up was caused by a failure to re- ceive the bulletins in time. As a re- sult, the following matters were only talked over and nothing could be de- cided on them. There was a discussion on the grade lists which the student council mem- bers give to their teachers to be sign- ed and on which their grades are to be listed. The number of times a mem- ber is required to attend the coun- cil meetings was also discussed. Miss Klema remarked that she thought we had a very fine, working group this year. Mary: "What's the difference be- tween marching and dancing?" Ed: "I don't know!" Mary: That's what I thought. Let's sit down." SCOTT STARTED SEVENTH ASSEMBLY The seventh assembly was held Oc- tober l4, in the auditorium. The pro- gram was about good grooming which Mr. Scott said is quite important for people in junior high. There were ap- proximately 450 seventh graders at- tending. This assembly was just a bit noisy, so Mr. Scott added a few words about the need for being quiet and polite so that all can enjoy the as- semblies. Mr. Scott introduced Mr. Af1de1'S0n, who had prepared the pro- gram. Then there was a film on good grooming. After this, Mr. Scott gave a short talk and summarized the movie. He stressed that all boys should wear belts, keep Pants up, and keep shirts buttoned up. MARTAINS OR GOBLINS? BY Jeff Rees This was my day off. I had just been to the store, They were having a sale on candy, so I had bought some because my grandchildren were al- ways after me for candy when they came for a visit. It was early in the evening, I decided to watch TVQ I sat back in my chair and relaxed. 'Sud- denly, there was a news bulletin! It reported an unidentified flying object in Hawaii. I was not worried about it because I lived in New York. It soon slipped my mind. As I went out to the kitchen to snack on some of the candy I just bought, I happened to glance out the window. Then I saw it! I thought to myself, "It must be a Martain!" In this state of utter confusion, I called the operator and asked for the FBI. I heard a knock on the door: I could see through the window that it was a Martain. I hung up the phone, ran to get my gun, and opened the door very slowly. I heard a squeaky voice shout, "We want some candy!" I quickly dumped the bag of candy into one of the sacks they had and slammed the door. They turned around and ran. I happened to glance at the calendar that was behind the door and then I, understood. It was October 31! Then there's the one about the fellow' who landed on Mars. One of his first sights was the most beautiful girl he had ever seen, a soar- ing nine feet of perfect proportions. The earth man said, "Take me to a ladder-I'll see your leader later." David Jiminez was seen trying to stab flies in Miss Cloyes's English class. Failing at this, he tried to hit one on his knee and almost knocked himself out of his chair. NEW FACES Mr. Talley Keeps Busy at Two Jobs Besides spending a full day at teach- ing mathematics here in North Junior High, Mr. Richard Talley works as a butcher in one of our grocery stores. When he has any spare time, he en- joys radio and television work, flying model airplanes, and sports. Mr. Talley's home is Neodesha, Kan- sas, and his degree is from Baker Uni- versity, where he majored in math. This is his first year of teaching, but he practice taught in Gardner, Kan- sas. He is enjoying teaching here and thinks the Salina School System is out- standing. He has considered doing some coaching along with his teach- ing. Although he is married, Mr. Talley has no children. When asked what his pet peeves were, he answered, "people who talk in class and don't do their assignments." SNOOPER Pat Lewis: I heard that you and Larry Cox were eating lunch togeth- er, and that he asked you to sit be- side him at lunch again. I hope you had fun! , Why do your bassoon reeds keep .getting covered with mold? Huh, Tom Rethard and Kathy Mad- den? Why is it at lunch you always have your head under the table when Steve Bishop passes by? What about that Donna Batcheller? Ed: Did you hear about the cowboy who could shoot so fast the gun didn't come out of his holster? Ted: No! What's his name? Ed: No Toes Bailey. With the passing of old time outlaws, people who lived in the country thought they were safe from unwel- come visitors. Then came the in-laws.

David Watters is now known as Kil- roy because he has been caught sit- ting in class with his nose resting on the window sill, watching the girls' gym classes. The angry wife demanded, "I want an explanation, and I want the truth." "Make up your mind." answered her husband, "you can't have both!" H IM ll As cold winter days approach, we are forced to spend most leisure hours indoors. One of the most profitable and enjoyable fun-time activities for any time of year is reading. So visit your library, or use your own home's inviting bookshelf. TURNING LEAVES By Meta Adams The turning leaves on the trees right now Are a very beautiful sight. Many people are wondering how They change almost overnight. The tree is the one that causes this, For when it feels the chill, It prepares for Winter's kiss, And stops making chlorophyll. Chlorophyll is the juice in the tree That makes the leaves turn green. If there's less of the green in the leaf, there'll be More reds and yellows seen. These are the Autumn signs we've found That tell us Winter is near, And that after the leaves are safe on the ground, The Winter's snows will appear.

Nancy Moore played the processional and the program was presided over by Cheryl Wolf. The program was presented as a skit. In the first scene, Barbara Rueb, Cheryl Wolf, Sue Hinkle and Barbara Solberg were planning the program, and in the next scene, it was present- ed. For the devotional period, Deanna Cowan read Psalm 1 and Carol Chris- tensen gave a talk on good election qualifications. Then Sue Hinkle led the group in prayer. Following this, the Saint John's Baptist Choir sang a beautiful song, "Lead Me, Guide Me." Jan McAninch told the girls of the qualifications of a good Y-Teen mem- ber. Marsha Kresge then explained the Y.W.C.A. Market Day. The norrgnations and electidhs for officers were then held. Kathy Eng- strom was elected president, Helene Kalb was elected vice-president, Judy Johnson was elected treasurer, and Betty Kastner was elected secretary. YOU CAN KEEP CLEAN The sound of a movie projector could be heard at the eighth grade as- sembly on October 21. The eighth graders were entertained by a film on courtesy and good grooming, both of which should be of great importance to every teen-ager. Mr. Scott then gave the group a pep talk on making good grades this year and on working up to the height of our abilities. He also pointed out that good grooming is very important, and that whether your clothes are ex- pensive is not the problem, but keep- ing clean and being neatly dressed at all times is something that each student can do easily and this will surely make for a greater sense of personal satisfaction. PEP CLUB HAS FIRST MEETING Organization of our pep club was held in the Lincoln gym on October 10. During the meeting, which was held after school, officers were chos- en to keep order during the games and to see to it that other duties are taken care of. The officers are: Sandy Ludes, presidentg Jinna Rittenhouse, vice-president, and Jane Akers, sec- retary. Sponsors are: Miss Cassell and Mrs. Wise. After the officers were chosen, sev- eral cheers were given, led by the cheerleaders, and then the meeting was dismissed. . It is hoped that at the next meeting more boys will attend. Above is pictured our undefeated NORTH TRAMPLES GREAT BEND 33 TO 0 A great ninth grade football game came to an end with the wonderful score of 33-0 over Great Bend! It was played here, October 6. Touchdowns were made by Ted Coffman, Earcel McCabe and Charles Roth. Coffman and McCabe scored two touchdowns eachg Roth made one. Extra points were scored by Robert Johnson, Ted Coffman and Earcel McCabe. "I thought the boys played good hard football, but they must continue to improve if they want to win more games," remarked Coach Burch after the game. NUTTY CHEERLEADERS No sir, I just couldn't believe my eyes, but I guess it must be true! I walked with Marsha Kresge, in the rain, to the ninth grade game on October 18. Our team played against McPherson High. Vlhen we got there, I, of course, head- ed for shelter: but not this nutty Kresge kid. She is a cheerleader, and I guess she wanted to prove some- thing, so what did she do? That's right! She cheered! Here it is now, pouring down rain and a nutty girl is standing there cheering to about four girls! Marsha may be a little odd, but she sure is keeping the school spirit! One cat to another, while looking at an Egyptian mummy in a museum: "Dig that crazy band-aid!" IT'S SO TRUE mettem we likem likem we- datem, datem we dancem dancem we kissem kissem we lovem lovem we losem Darnem! We We We We We We eighth grade football team. MCPHERSON SLOSHES OVER FROSH: 6-0 Fifty, faithful, gridiron fans sat in a cold, drizzling rain on October 18, to watch McPherson beat our ninth grade team, 6 to 0. McPherson's only touchdown came in the third quarter. They did not make the extra point. Late in the second quarter, we almost made a touchdown. We were on the nine yard line when a run around the end was tried. This was not successful, as we were taken for a five yard loss. Before we could make another attempt, the half was sound- ed. The rain and cold wind seemed to put a damper on our chances of win- ning. UNDEFEATED, BUT ONCE TIED Finishing the season with an "un- defeated, but once tied" record, the eighth grade football team beat Hutch- inson Plaza 14 to 0, on October 19- Both touchdowns were scored by David Page. William Gadson and Kenny Long made the extra points. Mr. Sackrider and Mr. Pickering felt that the team's record was not due to just two or three boys, but to "out- standing team effort," In the game October 19, Kenny Long did a very good job as quarterback. Our congratulations go to our eighth grade team and coaches for playing an undefeated season. Teacher: You boys in the back of the room-stop passing notes! Student: Them ain't notes, teacher, them's cards, we're playin' poker! Teacher: Ccoming out of an anestheticj Why are the blinds drawn, Doc? Doctor: There's a fire across the street and I didn't want you to think the operation was a failure. ARE YOU A "GAD-ABOUT AT THE GAMES? Have you been a "Game Gad- About" lately? If some of you honor- able people don't know what a "Game Gad-About" is, I will tell you! A "Game Gad-About is a person who wouldn't miss a game, only so that he can yell and wave to his friends. "Game Gad-Abouts" never sit down because they are afraid they might not get to talk to Johnny or Kathy. "Game Gad-Abouts" only sit down when they are tired of walking all over the stadium. Then do you think they pay attention to the games? No, of course notg they must show Mary or Tom their new shirt, bracelet, or tell them the latest joke. Maybe if the "Game Gad-Abouts" would sit down and pay attention to the game, they would realize how much work the football players, coach- es, cheerleaders, pep club, etc., put into each game. Then maybe they would find out they have been miss- ing something all these times. Basketball season will soon be start- ing, so let's not have any "Game Gad- Abouts" there! NINTH VICTORIOUS On October 13, the ninth grade foot- ball team, traveling to Hutchinson, stomped Liberty 39 to 0. Touchdowns were made by Othello Meadows, two, Earcel McCabe, two: Chuck Reinbold, oneg and Bill Eubanks scored on a pass interception. Extra points were made by John Woodward, Chuck Reinbold, and Ted Coffman. An exceptional run was made by Othello Meadows when he ran 80 yards for a touchdown This is the third win for the freshmen team. NORTH TACKS UP A WIN OVER LIBERTY Our 8th grade football team beat Liberty Jr. High with a score of 14-6 on October 12. In the .first quarter, David Page made a touchdown with a set-up pass from Allen Faring to Dennis Culley and William Gadson scored the extra point. During the fourth quarter, Liberty scored a touchdown, but their extra point failed. With only 12 seconds left to play, William Gadson scored a touchdown with a run from the 31 yard line. Dennis Culley scored tne extra point. Coach Sackrider's comment concern- ing the game was: "John Wood, Dennis Culley, and-Richard Thompson played very 'well in the line and Kenny Long played nicely as quarter- back."

STUDENT LEADERS OF THE WEEK We have decided again this year to have student leaders of the week in- stead of class officers. They will be recommended by the student body. Students can write letters recommend- ing other students by listing their out- standing qualities. You can send these letters to the Student Council by hand- ing them at either office. This "nomi- nates" the student named in the letter for Student of the Week. The student council executive board looks over the letters each week and votes on which persons they think should be student leaders in each grade for that week. They keep each letter three weeks and then destroy it. Suppos- edly, one boy and one girl from each grade will be chosen each week. At the end of the year, four students from each grade will he chosen as class rep- resentatives for the year out of this group. The seventh and eighth grade classes es have Written several letters but the ninth grade has sent in only one or two. So keep it up, seventh and eighth graders, and get on the ball, freshmen! CONVENTION TIME FOR TEACHERS "Vacation!" could be heard at all schools in Salina, as the last bell rang RESOLVED. THE UNITED NATIONS SHOULD BE SIGNIFICANTLY STRENGTHENED Resolved, that the UN should be strengthened is the high school debate question for 1960. Every Tuesday night at 7:00, the debate club meets at the senior high. Mr. Mibeck, who is the debate coach at Salina High, is in charge. Freshmen get a chance to debate other people their own age from North and South. They will also get to go on at least one out-of-town debate trip this year if they have a good case. It is very good training if you are planning to be in debate next year, and it is lots of fun even if you aren't. If you are a freshman and think you might be interested, why not come next Tuesday, room 107, in the Salina High. Wednesday, November 3, at Memorial I-iall. Carnations were given to the teachers as they entered, by the Junior Chamber of Commerce. The speaker at the beginning session was lmre Kovacs, a Hungarian by birth. who is an expert on Central Europe. Dr. Carl Winters spoke at the last session on "Today's Youth in Tomorrow's World." Many ideas and suggestions were given to the teachers, and they found this convention to be very helpful and enjoyable. THANKSGIVING FORGOTTEN? Thanksgiving has nearly been for- fotten these last few years. Stores and people get started talking about Christmas, toys, and Santa Claus, etc. so early that Thanksgiving no longer means anything except a big meal with turkey, cranberries, and the us- ual extras. When our parents were young, they usetl Thanksgiving as a time to be thankful for all the things they have. They went to church together, came home and had a big family dinner, and made the afternoon a happy, thankful time. I am not saying we should do exactly the same things they did, but at least we shouldg stop think and realize how lucky we are to he alive today. So let's try to remember Thanksgiving and try not to let it get lost in the shuffle of Christmas. STUDENTS VOTE, TOO! Students in Mr. Johnson's five de- mocracy classes had the chance to ex- ercise their voting privileges in a class election held November 7. The election returns were: Presi- dent- Nixon and Lodge over Kennedy and Johnson, 83-48g Governor-Andeh son defeated Docking, 92-333 Senator -Schoeppel was defeated by Theis, 85-39g Sixth District Congressman- Dole overcame Davis, 92-34, Lieuten- ant Governor-Chase over Glaves, 89-37. The school election agreed with the national election in three out of five races. The differences in the two elections were in the presidency, which was actually won by Kennedyg and in the race for senator, which was ac- tually won by Schoeppel. TEACHERS GET NEW "OFFICE" This Vear is the first time the teach- ers, organization of Salina has had a special room of its own for committee meetings. Before this, the teachers have had to meet in private homes and at the different schools. The room is in Washington building and was decorated by the teachers themselves, The Board of Governors' meetings and committee meetings, etc., are held there. In the future, the teachers plan to es- tablish a professional library in the room.

Someone lost his loved ones in The winter of twenty-one Someone worked to fill his bin 'Till summer days were done. Someone gave a feast to show His thanks to someone else, For showing someone how to grow His food and cure his pelts. That someone was a Pilgrim Whose rest was finally won, After paving the way to freedom For his daughters and his sons. LITTLE ZONE SCHOOL MEETS A movie giving the results of the -comprehensive educational survey of Kansas and the proposed revision of the constitution of the K. S. T. A. was shown to Salina teachers at the Lit- tle Zone School meeting on Thursday, October 20, 1960, held in the South Junior High auditorium. Guest speakers were Professor Pugsley, Dean of Administration, Kansas State University, and Mr. Hodgson, princi- pal of Salina Senior High. The primary discussion was held on the comprehensive educational sur- vey revision of the constitution of the K. S. T. A. This survey found that the larger schools are better because there are more teachers, newer and better equipment, and more oppor- tunities for a child to learn. In a larger school, teachers do not have to teach more than one or two subjects, therefore, they can be more advanced in the subjects they teach and do not have to teach something for which they are unprepared. Following their speeches, Profes- sor Pugsley and Principal Hodgson answered questions concerning their speeches. The group voted to adopt the new K. S T. A. state constitution revision as it was explained by Prin- cipal Hodgson. NORTH FACULTY GIVES COFFEE FOR SOUTH FACULTY A coffee was held November 14, in the Blue Room of Roosevelt by our faculty for the South faculty. It was well-attended by the faculty membersg approximately 75 persons attended. Refreshments consisting of coffee and pumpkin tarts were served. A bright centerpiece decorated the table. It was a plate with apples, gourds, hedge apples, squash, dried grasses, and seed pods. Hmricane lamps were on either side and inside them were dull, orange candles. Miss Cooke prepared this centerpiece. There was no meeting or program. The function was just a way to get to know each other, and visit with old friends. SNOOPER Congratulations! to Miss Cloyes for winning the paper wad throwing con- test at 3:15 against Jeff Reese. Did the wastebasket serve as a pretty good basketball goal? Mr. Johnston, is it true the only reason you won't sponsor a girls' basketball team, is because the girls would lock you out of the dressing room when you wanted to bawl them out? Barbara Solberg, is hitting Miss Cassell during the baseball throwing test, any way to get your brownie points? You should be ashamed! Carol Christensen, did Charles Roth really "tackle" you into the waste- basket fifth hour? have had to ride the rocket in front of Kresge's store! Dennie Anderson has two great problems these days-he thinks he has lice and is afraid of horror movies. Why is it that Isaac Bryant put a dead wasp in Mrs. Herzig's hair? For decoration? Say, David Fosbinder, what's this about you passing out Saturday night and falling down the stairs? Mike Pharo, were you and Deanna Baker holding hands under the lunch table November 16? Frank Roth, such bravery you must Billy Howell, what were you hiding from Miss Huttie the day after Hal- loween? LUCKY TURKEY By Jeff Rees "You can never realize how lucky I am! I am a turkey, and the follow- ing is my experience showing how lucky I am to still be alive today. "I saw him. He was on the other side of the fence. He had a sharp in- strument that glimmered in the sun. I, being scared, crept slowly and cau- tiously toward the gate. Oh, you could not have imagined how cautious- ly I went toward the gate. He was still on the other side of the fence and didn't seem to notice me. The gate was unlatched! I pushed it ever so gently. It gave a slight squeak like- that of a mouse and then swung open just far enough to get my body through. There were now two fences between us. I started to run. He saw me and gave chase. After many min- utes that seemed like eternities, he overcame me. He had me cornered in the barn. He raised his axe to his shoulder and . . . Meanwhile back in the house, there was a knock on the door. The man's wife opened it. It was the turkey that she had ordered from the grocery store. She began to prepare it. The- husband came in the door and flopped. himself down in a chai.r. HI couldn't do it!" he cried. "Couldn't do what?" his Wife in-- quired. "Ki1l the turkey," he Sobbed. "That's OK. I took the liberty of' ordering one from the store, so we could keep him." "Probably too tough anyway," their little son piped up. Now here is an unusual twist to the story. "I lived happily ever after!" Carolyn Davis, what were you trying to prove on that paper I found in your- desk in room L 21? Who did it turn out to be, Lewis Kleim or Jerry' Decker? Why were David Watters and Danny Elmore playing armsies in third hour? What did Miss Cloyes say, David? Who is it that found thirteen love notes about Billy Meyers and Loralie Howard?

STUDENT COUNCIL EXECUTIVE BOARD An executive meeting of our stu- dent council on November 11, reveal- ed that the Student of the Week pro- gram was receiving little or no par- ticipation from the ninth grade as of last Friday. The board all agreed that something should be done about this. If you know of someone who you think would make a good Student of the Week, just write down the reasons why he or she would be elegible and leave the letter in the office or give it to your Student Council represen- tative. Vice-President Glenn Maddox pre- sided over the meeting in the absence of president David Taylor. HAVE PROBLEMS-WILL MEET The student council discussed many things at the meeting, November 15. Among the things discussed was the Code of Conduct which will be print- ed on pocket-size cards. It has been slightly revised from last year's. Mr. Scott talked to the council about the Red Cross Boxes which must be in by Thursday, November 17. The school is authorized to keep a small amount of our Red Cross money to be used for the nurses' quarters and first aid rooms. This fund is used for emergencies such as buying eye glasses, etc., for those of our students who can't afford them, equipment, and other necessities. Mr. Scott explained the home-room Christmas parties which will be held Thursday, December 22, at 2:30. No collections are to be made for gifts for the teachers, and the teachers are not to treat the students. There are to be no exchanges of gifts. Classes are encouraged to decorate their home- rooms and are responsible for cleaning them up after school. Students may pay for the decorations and refresh- ments, but the amount must not be more than 25c per person. NINTH Y-TEENS OFFICERS INSTALLED The cafetorium was filled with sing- ing and fun at the ninth grade Y-Teens meeting held November 11. The new officers and cabinet were introduced and initiated in a simple ceremony. Mrs. Metz's homeroom then present- ed a fashion show, containing clothes worn by typical teenage girls to all occasions. Some of Mr. Dilling's girls, headed by Helene Kalb, led the group in sing- mg. Following this, a conversation period was held. THANKSGIVING IS HERE By Dan Austin The wind grows colder Upon my shoulder Filling my heart with cheer- Thanksgiving is here!

Heralding in the winter's days With the traditional turkey and maize, Give praise! Thanksgiving is here! Jan McAninch, like many of our stu- dents. is taking advantage of this beau- tiful autumn weather to ride her horse. STUDENT COUNCIL HAS SHORT MEETING At the Student Council meeting, Oc- tober 25, it was decided that the idea of Students of the Week be continued this year. It was also decided that the coun- cil request trash barrels to be put on the school grounds, to eliminate the litter we have been troubled by. NORTH INVADED BY MARINES The 8th and 9th grade Boys Club was entertained Thursday, November 10, with a film of combat action in Korea. M!Sgt. Gibson from the Ma- rine Recruiting Station was the guest speaker. He was accompanied by several other Marines, all of whom were in full dress uniform. This very interesting film was entitled Chosin to Hungkow. It told of the Marines' strategic withdrawal from Korea and the assistance given them by the Navy. WHAT MAKES A GOOD SCHOOL DAY Two educators from the state of Oregon recently made a study among 2100 high school students to report on the items most frequent- ly mentioned as contributing to a good school day. As concerned the school, a stu- dent is more appreciative if nec- essary equipment is available for science or gym, and a day is better if courtesy prevails on the bus. The aspect of going through another school day is better after a good night's sleep, a balanced breakfast and a congenial home life. Regarding the students person- ally, he considers activity periods, assemblies, as well as cooperative classmates, time to finish assign- ments, attitude of his friends and class, and a neat, presentable ap- pearance as contributing to the success. of a day. When teachers are happy, good- natured, interested, have a sense of humor, are friendly and understand- ding, if classes are interesting, have experiments, discussions, and demonstrations. with something challenging or difficult, if our grad- ing system is understandable and fair, then all of us may enjoy good school days. SEVENTH GRADE BOYS ENJOY FILM ON SPORTS CAR RACING. BASKETBALL, AND FOOTBALL A film, containing techniques on sports car racing, basketball, and foot- ball, provided enjoyment for the sev- enth grade boys' club on October 28, in the Lincoln auditorium. The film was liked by most of the boys because of the three different topics. SEVENTH GRADE OPEN HOUSE HELD A Halloween theme was presented at the seventh grade P. T. A. open house held October 25. Mrs. Clyde Turner, president, presided at the meeting. Devotions were given by Mrs. Carl Engstrom. A short business meeting was also conducted. Mr. Scott then invited the parents of seventh graders to visit their child- ren's various classrooms. In this way, the parents have a chance to become acquainted with the teachers and to be informed of the work their child- ren are doing. Some of the teachers had displays in their rooms on which their students had been working. Coffee and doughnuts were served from an attractive Halloween table. THANKSGIVING When the Pilgrims came here early in the seventeenth century, they en- countered many hardships. The In- dians were a threat and the land was not ready for farming. Trees were cut, houses built, and all this was done with crude tools unlike the modern machines and tools we have today. When we think about what they did and the courage that they had, we can see why they were thankful and why they set aside a day to give thanks to God and called it Thanksgiving Day! Two little kindergarten boys stood talking on the school playground when a jet plane flew over. "Look at that, said one, "It's a BX-503' "No, a BX-5l," commented the other. "You can tell by its wing sweep." "You're right," conceded the first youngster. 'fBut it's not going more than 760 miles per hour because it didn't break the sound barrier. The second lad agreed on this point and remarked, "It's amazing the pres- sure that develops on those planes when they go into a dive-almost 1200 pounds per square inch." Then the school bell rang indicating the end of recess, and the first boy sighed, "Now we have to go back and finish stringing those darn beads." H WHAT IS YOUR FUTURE? By Kathy Engstrom This is a very important question that everyone should think about. To you, your future seems very far off, but this is not true. You must begin to discover what line of Work you want to go into so you can start planning what courses to take in high school and college. The college you will attend depends on what vocation you are interested in. Choosing the right college is very important to you and your future. If you have a hard time with your grades or maybe your social life, it would be advisable to go to a small college for at least one or two years and then to some school which specializes in certain subjects which pertain to your career. Give a lot of thought to this and discuss it with your teachers. Mr. Oberhelman, the school counsellor, is always willing to talk to you about any problem which you have.

FRESHMEN FINISH FIGHTING North freshmen, unable to get their offense moving, were defeated by Junction City, November 1. Bobby Kord played an exceptional game making over ten tackles. Mr. Wil- liams accompanied the team to Junc- tion City. This being the final game for the team, gave them a record of four wins and three losses. Rock-a-bye, baby In a treetop Better be careful It's a heck of a drop! NINTH VICTORIOUS OVER SHERMAN An exciting day for the ninth graders was October 27, as it was their last home game. The ninth grade foot- ball squad won its last game from Sherman Jr. High., Hutchinson, 19-14. In the first quarter, Sherman had a lead of 7-0. By the third quarter, the score stood 14-12, Sherman's lead. How- ever, by the outstanding plays made by Cll.l'lG"lO Meadows, who scored two touchdowns and an extra point, Earcel llc sane, who scored one touchdown, North gained the lead and stayed un- til the end of the game. Coach Trimble is giving instructions to the ninth grade basketball team as they prepare for the approaching season. PARENTS GET LOOK- SEE AT OPEN HOUSE At the open house November 15, par- ents of the eighth and ninth graders got a look-see at their children's school life. Mr. Dilling had charge of a short program before the meeting. For the devotions, his ninth and eighth grade fifth and sixth hours sang "Fairest Lord Jesus" with soloist Lana Holder. After this, the ninth grade class sang "Now Thank We All Our God" and "Where in the World but in America" with Ted 'Coffman, Susie Painter, Helene Kalb, Audrey Browning, and Kennette Rundell as soloists. After the devotions, the P. T. A. de- cided, as a money-making project, to take individual student pictures as they did last year, and sell them to the students. At the close of the business meeting, Mr. Scott gave an interesting talk. When the business meeting was fin- ished. the parents got a chance to go around to the individual classes and visit the teachers. A number of teach- ers made special efforts to set up inter- esting exhibits for their rooms. There were refeshments in the cafetorium for the many parents who attended. BATTLE ON THE COURTS Fingers were crossed during the teniquoit game played by gym 2, hour 3 and gym 1, hour 3, ninth grade girls Thursday night after school, Novem- ber 17. Both teams put a lot of effort into the game. It was exciting, as the score was tied a good part of the time. The result of the game was a lot of screaming and happy yelling from gym l, hour 3, with the cry of "Vic- tory!" and "We won!!!!" Each team plays five games. Each team had played three games prev- iously. Gym l, hour 3, has won 2 and lost l, and gym 2, hour 3, has lost all three. Of the ninth grade teams gym 2, hour 1, is ahead. They have played three and won all three. Of the eighth grade, gym 2, hour 6, has play- ed two and won two.

Vol. X No. 4 Thursday, December 22, 1960 North Junior High, Sa1ina,KanS-as WHAT IS THE TRUE CHRISTMAS? By Kathy Engstrom At Christmas, everyone is busy buy- ing gifts, making cookies, and trying to find out what is in those myster- ious boxes. Because of the excitement it is very easy to forget why we have va Christmas. ,Christmas came to us when God sent His Son, Jesus Christ, into this world, not when Santa came down with his sleigh and reindeer. I'm not saying there should not be a Santa. Let's just be sure that he comes second in importance, after Jesus. In my opinion, Santa Claus is too highly publicized and too many fam- ilies build their Christmas celebration around Santa Claus and gifts instead -of the true Christmas meaning. On Christmas, before you open your gifts, why don't you and your family 'open the Bible and read the beautiful story of Christmas and remember that there is a place for Santa, but Jesus comes first. FACULTY AND FAMILIES HAVE POTLUCK PARTY Prunes, pears, pineapple, and pork were part of the food enjoyed at the potluck party held by the North Junior High faculty and their families on No- vember 21. This dinnr was held in the cafetorium. Mrs. Batten was chair- man of the committee that organized the supper. Also on the committee 'were Miss Neilson, Miss Brodine, Mr. Dahlsten, Mr. Dilling. Mrs. Brewer, Mr. Hemphill, and Mrs. Wise. So all could enjoy themselves, Miss Brodine and Mrs. Wise planned games for the children. The food was quite good and plentiful and everyone had a very enjoyable time. RECITAL GIVEN BY EARLYBIRDS The Earlybird Choral Group of 105 voices gave a recital which was open to the parents on the evening of No- vember 22. They have also given pro- grams for seventh and eighth grade assemblies. Mrs. Delbert Miller was the accom- panist and Nancy Moore was the nar- rator. The Earlybirds are also having a Christmas program, December 20, a patriotic program in February, an East- er program, and a spring program in May. Eating their suckers and telling Santa what they want for Christmas are tlett to right! Elaine Tanner, Betty Rollins, and Meta Adams pictured at Santa's headquarters in Sears. WHEN I FOUND OUT THERE WAS NO SANTA By Liz Hoover The heart-breaking experience of my kindergarten year was when one of my little friends told me there was no Santa Claus. I told him it wasn't true. We argued for quite a while until I finally told him I was never going to play with him again, and at that, I ran home. But, of course, the next day I trotted over to his house to play. He called his mother in and she also told me there wasn't a Santa Claus. They final- ly convinced me after a session of brain-washing of about a half an hour. I ran home crying and asked my mother if it was true. She said there wasreally a spirit of giving, but not a Santa Claus who dressed in a red coat and rode in a sleigh pulled by reindeer. Then I began to realize that there was a Santa Claus. It is a spirit that is symbolized by a jolly fat man with a red coat and a long white beard. My friend was right that there isn't a man named Santa Claus. But there is a Santa Clausg the Spirit. SCHOLARSHIP TESTS DISCUSSED BY FACULTY Mr. Scott was in charge of the faculty' meeting that met November 29 in the- blue room. Among the matters of bus-' iness discussed were the state schol-- arship tests. Mr. Scott plans to appoint a committee of six to organize and plan the try-out tests. This committee will consist of two teachers from each grader - Pupils who are planning to partici- pate in these scholarship tests that are given every spring should start "bon- ing up" on studies now. STUDENT COUNCIL EXECUTIVE BOARD TO HOLD ITS MEETINGS EVERY OTHER WEEK At the December 2 meeting of the Student Council executive board, the group decided to hold its meetings every other week. Besides the regular duty of discussing and choosing the Student Leaders of the Week, the council also decided to plan the topics of discussion for regular student council meetings. President Dave Taylor presided over the meeting. -14 NORTHERN HIGHLIGHTS Published every three weeks by the Salina Junior High North's Publica- tions class, Salina, Kansas.

CHRISTMAS IS A RACKET By Dan Austin Thirty days before Christmas, lights and decorations went up on the down- town streets of Salina, local merchants started setting up their display win- dows with all new glittering Christ- mas gifts inside them, and Christmas trees were put on sale. This, in these modern times, is the official proclama- tion of the holidays and the signal for some to make money and others to spend it as fast they they can! No one thinks about the real meaning of Christmas, unless he happens to be sit- ting in church on Christmas Eve or morning and the thought suddenly hits Thim that the real meaning is not to :spend and to get. But by then it is :almost too late to enjoy the real mean- :ing of Christmas. Perhaps if we thought about the birth of the Christ-Child and all His glory instead of thinking of buying the most expensive gifts and hoping to receive the same, it might make a merrier Christmas for all of us. iiiill- NINE FOOT CHRISTMAS TREE TO BE USED AGAIN THIS YEAR The Student Council had a meeting, November 28, to discuss the student body's problems. David Taylor, president, opened the meeting and the minutes were read and roll was taken. The executive board reported a fair- ly good income of "student of the week letters" from the eighth grade, but the ninth and seventh grades still need to send in more letters. A committee was chosen to decorate the nine foot Christmas tree in the Lincoln hall on December 9 and another committee was chosen for the large tree in the Roosevelt hall. Congratulations were given to all the students for the wonderful use of the waste containers which were plac- ed by the doors of Lincoln and Roose- velt for students' convenience. CHRISTMAS WREATH By Carl Christensen The Christmas wreath hangs on the door Giving joy to everyone, rich and poor. It is not large, it's rather small, But the message it conveys, goes to all. It is a symbol of happiness and joy, In honor of the new-born boy We remember in this sacred season For, oh, so many heartfelt reasons. Each year we celebrate his birth, This one who came to save the earth. He bore all our sins and sorrows, And gave us hope for all tomorrows. On many homes, we find this sign, And may it always us remind Of the glorious birth of the baby boy, Who gave the world a chance for joy. Snooper I heard that John Block and John Burch got into a fight over Linda Johnson. True? At lunch, why did Patty Pulk ask Rickie McPhail to pull out her chair?

Watch it there, Kastner! ,1..1.-1- Well, Jerry Decker! I'd say you were rather selfish in Mr. Burch's room. After all, you could have shar- ed that bottle of ink you were drink- ing. Bill Cox, do you enjoy writing love letters to Marsha Kresge? I'm sure she enjoys them! Sheryl Covington, what were you and Bill Eubanks doing at the lunch table? Watch out for Sandy, Sheryl! OLD FOLKS GET CARDS AND STAMPS FROM Y-TEENS A Christmas gift of cards and stamps was given to the Ashlawn Rest Home and the Salina Nursing Home by our Y-Teens Club. The ninth grade girls thought that the members of the homes would en- joy these gifts very much, as they like to send Christmas cards to their rela- tives and friends, and they often can't afford to buy them themselves. CHRISTMAS COFFEE HELD FOR FACULTY A gingerbread house decorated with white frosting and candy was the cen- terpiece for the faculty Christmas cof- fee held December 5. The coffee was held at 3:30 in the blue room. The faculty visited and then enjoy- ed' refreshments, which were fruit cake with whipped cream, and red and green maraschino cherries, red and white striped mints, nuts, and coffee. FINE PLOT WITH GOOD ACTING MAKES S. H. S. PLAY A SUCCESS By Dan Austin "Arsenic and Old Lace," the story of two sweet old ladies who try to be "charitable" by putting a pinch of ar- senic into home-made wine and giv- ing it to elderly men who are alone in the world, was given at the Salina High auditorium on the nights of Dec- ember 2 and 3. The results were ex- cellent. As the play developed, two old ladies' nephews, Jonathan and Morti- mer Cwho both hated each otherj kept trying to throw each other out of the house. Jonathan, who was the black sheep of the Brewster family, finally lost out in the end when a policeman noticed him as a wanted criminal. As they carted him off, he tried to tell the authorities about the twelve dead men down in the basement. They laughed at him and took him away. So the two sisters' secret was saved and Mortimer, the good nephew, who was a newspaper drama critic, mar- ried the girl who had been trying to get him throughout the play. The cur- tain of the third act went down on the two sweet old killers, again taking in another man who was superintendent of the local "nuthouse," for a victim The play was a success. Q Congratulations are in order to Mr. Kelly, the actors in the play, and those who helped make it possible. TWO FISHERMEN MEET Hiyamac. Gobbawurms. Lobuddy. Fishanonaboddum? Binearlong?

EARLYBIRDS ARE AT THEIR FINEST Mr. Scott opened the eighth grade assembly December 2 by compliment- ing the Earlybirds, saying North Jun- ior High had the best vocal group in this part of the country of junior high age. Mrs. Lakin is the director of the Earlybirds and Mrs. Miller is the ac- companist. The group started by singing "America Our Heritage," and then sang "A Country Style Square Dance." The Girls Glee Club then sang "Autumn Leaves," preceded by the Boys Glee Club singing "Purple Hills." The boys then handed out ad- vice to the girls as they sang "Hello Girls." These and other songs that the Earlybirds sang brought a great round of applause. Mrs. Lakin said anyone is welcome to come and join Earlybirds as the group is still minus some needed sing- ers. The program was ended by every- one singing 'fGod Bless America." Mr. Scott then made some announcements. Boy: "Whisper those three little words that make me Walk on air." Girl: "Go hang yourself."

THE VISIONS OF THE SHEPHERDS By Meta Adams Winter's blanket of velvet Gleamed white in the silvery night. The woolly lambs with their mothers Lay close to the campfire's light. The shepherds were quietly gazing Over their flocks with pride. The stars in the heavens were twink- ling In trying a secret to hide. Suddenly over the meadows, A radiant beam of light Dazzled the frightened shepherds, As they saw a glorious sight. "Fear not, for I bring tidings Of the birth of Christ the Lord. You will find him in a manger In Bethlehem," sang the horde. Then suddenly all was quiet, The vision had disappeared. The shepherds gazed in wonder. Upward their sight adhered. "We must go and see the Christ Child," They said to one another. So they started to find the stable And the waiting Child and Mother. Over the hills and valleys 'Till the gates of the city were seen, The shepherds trudged through the snowdrifts Thinking of that they had seen. Through the gates of the city They walked, not feeling the cold, Straight to the stable of Jesus, Another sight to behold. There, abed in a manger, The tiny infant lay. Mary, the Mother, was kneeling, Her thanks to God to pray. The Shepherds then knelt to worship And heard again the sound Of angels' quiet singing As a light from his face shone 'round. The shepherds left quietly later So not to disturb the Child, Who had fallen asleep in the manger, His face so peaceful and mild. As they returned to their meadow, They told all that would hear Of the glorious sights they had wit- nessed, 0f peace, good will, and cheer. ,lliil Shortly after moving to a new house, I met a former neighbor, a retired al- gebra teacher. I invited her to visit us and suggested that she write down our house number-24361-as it was hard to remember. "Why that's easy to remember!" she replied. "It's two dozen and 19 squar- ed!" CHRISTMAS IS IN THE AIR You could certainly tell that Christ- mas is on its way, by the program at the Sugar and Spice meeting, Decem- ber 2. Sandra Gaines presided over the meeting. The Christmas story from Luke was read by Olene Walker and was fol- lowed by a Christmas prayer by Pam Valkenaar. A poem "Keep the Christ in Christ- mas" was given by Beverly Cox. Those taking part in an acrostic, "His Star," were: Karen Becker, Bonnie Staniger, Libby Spatafore, Joyce Parker, Susan Starvard, Nikki McArthur, Jane Akers, Diane Hayden, and Linda Abrams. Judy Crimen was the reader for a skit, "The Spirit of Christmas." Those taking part were: Vicki Hallowell, Barbara Brandt, Carol Knight, Bonita Miller, Kathryn Tyler, Susan Lay, and Susan Lantz. Next there was a group reading, "Where Is Christmas?" Those partici- pating were: Nikki McArthur, Loa Vine, Elaine Austin, Gwen Steinle, Connie Tyler and Rosemary Zaragoza. A skit, "The Tale the Fire Told," was given by Era Richardson, Sharon Johnson, Jolene Pruitt, Regina Fuller, and Kay Fulcher, with Susan Garrelts as reader. The program ended with a short play, in which Mary Lillard and Mary Ann Moore performed. .li-l The trouble with political jokes is that they often get elected to office. - While we have most of the automo- biles in the world, Russia has most of the parking space. - Do a little more each day than is expected of you and pretty soon more will be expected. As a junior high school teacher dis- tributed the first report cards of the year, she noticed that one blond teen- ager was scowling. "What's the mat- ter? Aren't you satisfied with your marks?" she asked. "I certainly am not," said the girl. "You gave me an F in Sex and I didn't even know I was taking it!" In Africa, some of the native tribes practice the strange custom of beating the ground with clubs and uttering wild, blood-curdling yells. Anthropo- logists call this a form of self-expres- sion. In America, we call it golf. THREE MAKE H. S. WRESTLING SQUAD Boys from the 9th grade have been at the high school working out for the wrestling team. They began their season just as soon as the football season closed. Just three, Larry Elder, Chuck Reinbolt and Robert Johnson have been able to wrestle on the high school team. Grouped by weight, they wrestle others in their class. In our first match with Newton, we unfor- tunately lost. ORIENTS ORIGINATED THIS CHRISTMAS CUSTOM By Carol Christensen Christmas is the most joyous season of the year, honoring the birth of God's son, Jesus. From this simple event a great many customs have been derived. One of the happiest of these is the Christmas tree. It is placed in our homes and decorated gaily. Under it are placed the gifts. Giving gifts is truly an important part of the Christmas tradition, if done with the right thought in mind. We should not just give gifts for the presents we will receive in turn, but for the pleasure it will give the re- ceiver. This is sometimes difficult, but try to keep the Christmas meaning in your gift exchanges. The idea of giving gifts was started by the Oriental wise men, as they knelt at the crib of the baby Jesus. They gave the gifts because they were so very grateful that Jesus had at last arrived and they wanted to express their joy. We should feel much the same way. Instead of thinking only of what you will receive, express your joy in the pleasure of giving the gift and the hap- piness it will give the receiver. In this way, we can keep alive the beau- tiful tradition started by the wise men. ,1 STAFFER'S STORY I love the paper I think it's swell.

BASKETBALL INTRAMURALS BEGIN: 26 TEAMS TO PARTICIPATE Intramural basketball began this week with about 250 boys signing up. Last chance to sign up was Friday, December 9. Mr. Carlson stated that 26 teams from all three grades would participate this year. The first games will be played the week of the 19th, and the season is expected to run until the middle of March. THE PASSION PLAY WAS A DISAPPOINTMENT By Dan Austin The Passion Play held in Salina was given big write-ups in the Journal. advertised by sound trucks, newspaper ads, the radio, and by posters. How- ever, this endeavor was to no availg the public saw it and most of the pub- lic disliked it. The main reason for this was the performance by the so- called "Broadway" actor, Val Balfour. Throughout the show he did nothing but "ham it upi' and also his voice was not that expected of someone portray- ing Christ. However, the rest of the cast did quite well-especially the men portraying Judas, Pontius Pilate, the temple priests, and Peter. These people must be given credit for a wonderful job. Unfortunately, Balfour, in my opinion, ruined the whole thing. The Salina Jaycees also suffered fi- nancially. The play put them in debt 31,000 While Belfour left with a cool 33,300 in his pocket! I'm betting Salina won't be seeing another Passion Play for a long time. December 8, won by South. 37-28. Also NEW TEACHER SPENT TWO YEARS IN FRANCE One of the new teachers whom you may have seen or may have as a teacher, is Miss Boyd. She teaches 7th grade English in Roosevelt, room 27. Miss Boyd was born in Logan coun- ty, Kansas, and lived there her entire life except for two years, when she lived in France. There she attended school the first year and taught con- versational English the second year. She attended Bethany College for one semester, and then attended Fort Hays College where she remained- for the rest of her education. She comes from a family of ten children, so she rather enjoys being alone at times. However, she now has a roommate, Miss Guthals, another of our new teachers. Her only hobby at the present is reading, because she has not found enough time for many other hobbies. A mother was proudly showing off her little daughter to a visitor who asked the little girl, "What are you going to do when you get as big as your mother?" "Diet!" the little girl quickly an- swered. Overheard on the radio: The Weath- er report you have just heard appear- ed at the time "Uncle Fred's Fairy Tales" are on the air. I assure you that any similarity is purely coincidental. With some girls, opportunity never has to honk twice. Vol. X No. 5 Friday, January 20, 1961 I North Junior High, Salina, Kansas STUDY FOR FINAL EXAMS By Elaine Tanner With the last-minute hustle before the end of the first semester, which means taking all sorts of quizzes and tests, we begin to wonder how we can "cram" all that "stuff" into our brains. Studying seems to be the best methodg however, "cramming" is often used by students who wait until the last minute. Studying should be done over a per- iod of time. It is practically impossible to learn material for tests in three or more subjects in one night. So, start studying several nights ahead. Study in a quiet place, not listening to radio or TV blaring in your ear, or eating that mid-evening snack. Rememeber, a good test paper can help your six weeks' grade quite a bit. START THE NEW YEAR RIGHT By Carol Christensen The habit of starting the new year by making resolutions is a good and profitable custom. It gives us a chance to sit down and appraise ourselves and decide what 1S good about ourselves and what needs to be better. The very best way possible, then, to start the new year is to make these resolutions hold fast. We are all inter- ested in making each year better than the one before it, and this is impossible without improving ourselves. Right now our lives are centered around school and home. Our resolu- tions ought to be made with these in mind, and they ought to make our lives and everyone else's happier and much rnore pleasant. Don't just make resolutions which are just for show and you know you won't keep, but smaller ones, which when kept, will gradually lead to big- ger ones. If we all do this, this year will be much better and happier. JOHNSON, BATTLES AND TROWBRIDGE ACROBATICS INCORPORATED By John Tisdel Mr. Johnston, executive manager, and part-owner of Johnston, Battles and Trowbridge Incorporated, put on a show for third hour on December 21, with the aid of his assistant, Gary Battles. Their act included a one-hand pushup While pretending to help Mr. Burch Davis fleftl and Sandra Ludes Krightl p that it will make studying easier. performed by Mr. Johnston. Then a spectacular test of strength was wit- nessed by his audience when Mr. John- ston lifted Gary Battles over his head with one hand. Thursday, the day after Acrobatics Incorporated's first appear- ance, Mr. Johnston performed for fourth hour when he used his human weight lifting device, namely, Tom Trow- bridge. He successfully lifted Tom much to the amazement of his aud- ience. Earlier the same day, Mr. Johnston consented to do a special act for Jan McAninch and certain other sinister members of this not-to-be-forgotten third hour Democracy Class who want- ed him to do a walking hand stand. This special attraction was made pos- sible through the united efforts of Jon Woodard and John Tisdel who swept the floor for Mr. Johnston. It is of worthy note, that we mention that Mr. Johnston is not only an acrobat, but is also a democracy teacher at North Junior High. run off his semester tests, Carolyn eek at some of the questions in hopes NEWLY ELECTED SUGAR AND SPICE OFFICERS Chosen to lead the Seventh Grade Sugar and Spice Club this year are the following officers: President, Debby McRaeg vice president, Marilyn Wael- ding secretary, Brenda Cowang treas- urer, Lisa Nelson.

Some of us may think we never do a thing wrong. Maybe once in a while we throw a little paper wad or chew a wee little piece of gum, but that doesn't bother the teacher in the tiniest little way. "No, not at all!" But stop a minute and think what the class would be like if everyone was doing these little "undisturbing" things? You wouldn't learn a thing and there wouldn't be any reason for coming to school. Classes would just be wild confusion. So icorfsider this before you shoot your next rubber band or chew your next piece of gum in class. Someone may be watching you and decide to :act in the same way. QGREEN SNOW By Meta Adams Imagine how you would feel if you woke up one morning and found green snow on the STound. What about try- ing to build a blue snowman or skat- ing on an ice-covered pond with black snow on the shore? Of course, none of this could happen in Salina, but it has in some parts of Greenland and the Arctic. As the snow falls, dust particles and tiny living things are collected in the snow. This is what causes the color. As for me, I'm glad that our snow is plain white. LINCOLN AUDITORIUM TAKEN OVER Flocks of grade school children startled junior highers as they filed into Lincoln auditorium Monday, December 12, during fifth hour. Our students were further surprised when they he-ard Christmas carols faintly coming from within the auditorium. There is nothing very strange about this if you realize it wfs only Phillips School children practicing for their Chirstmas program which was held here the following Wednesday night. BOOKS HAVE MANY USES By Meta Adams Books are used for learning. This fact I'm sure you know. But books are very useful, In other ways, you know. Some kooksfsuch as a phone bookl Are used to show the strength Cf mighty men by being torn in strips of diflerent length. Some books are used by science, But not in the way supposed. They're used by future botanists To press a mum or rose. Thick books are used by children Who just at dinnertime, Cannot reach the table, But a book on the chair works fine. So books have many uses. This iact you know, we trust. But books are used for learning. And learn from books we must. A BABY DINOSAUR? By Liz Hoover There was a flourish of excitement in Miss Wise's gym class several weeks ago when a girl from her gym II, hour I group found a lizard crawling on the floor. The girl jumped back in amaze- ment. Mary Gile picked it up and took it to the substitute teacher wh.o suggest- ed she take it to a science teacher to see if they were studying such things as lizards and might need it. 'The teacher did not need the "baby dinosaur." The lizard was given to Ramona Law who took it home for the night. The lizard was brought back to school the next morning and claimed by the stu- dent Who lost it. CITY TEACHERS CONVENE The Salina Teachers' Association met December 14, 1960. The Citizenship Committee report was given by Owen Hodgson. He was well pleased that about 9871: of the Salina teachers turned out for the national election. This com- pares with about 92'Z2 for teachers nationally. He estimated that 98fZ: voted for the KSTA meeting. August Zemke thanked the teachers for their fine support in electing him to the KSTA board from the 6th dis- trict. He requested help or suggestions in securing a good speaker for the KSTA meeting in 1961. The election of delegates to State Bepresenat've Assembly will be held February 2, 1961. From North, Dean 'Jherhelman was elected and Helen Huttle will be an alternate. The treasurers' report of the Salina City Teachers' Association showed a balance on hand of 352,2ll.83. Snooper Mike Graham, is it true that you were writing love lettters to Rachel Rice during the ninth grade game? Clay Miller have you told Santa that you want a belt to replace that string you use as a belt? Sharon Johnson, did you watch the ninth grade game or the legs? Why is it that Mary Ann Moore, Mary Lillard, and Jean Royce have to raise their feet when riding over a railroad track? Randy Long, were you really writing love notes on the bottom of your shoe in English class? Shame on you! Was that red lipstick or red ink on your blushing face, December 2, Ron- nie? Better be careful, Peterson! Gary Gilbert and Nathan Johnson, do you always model the dunce caps and noses you make? Watch yourselves boys! What was David Swenson doing in the home ec class December 13? Hey, Elaine, what's this I hear about you hanging around the boys' room. Fm surprised at you, Tanner! Mickey Cohen, have you been writing love notes on Ted Coffman's jacket? Shocking! A certain Democracy teacher certain- ly has been wearing gay ties here lately. What good taste you have in clothes, Mr. Johnston! MEETING OF THE COUNCIL The student council met on Decem- ber 13 to discuss the "oddball" stu- dents. By "odd-ball" students we mean the students who do not take part in school activities or in the school's learning program. They are the ones who usually make trouble for the tea- chers while in class. This takes away our learning time because the teacher is talking to only a few people, when he could be talking to a whole class. The council members were asked to talk to their homerooms about this pro- blem and bring suggestions for solving it at the next meeting. Members were also asked to encour- age the students not to stand around in the halls between classes but go directly to their next classes. David Taylor presided over the meeting. A ELECTROCUTED HOT DOGS Electrocuted hot-dogs were the main course of Mr. Zerger's science class, January 3, 1961. The hot-dogs, or sweat puppies as Mr. Zerger prefers to call them, were made by driving two twenty-penny nails through a board and attached a cord to them. Then by arching a weiner over the nails in a rainbow fashion and plugging it in, the hot-dog completes the circuit and is electrocuted. After tasting ths delicacy, Stan Clas- sen said, "Mmmmm!" Dave Duncan's comment was, "Aagghh!" GROANING AT SEMESTER TIME? By Carol Christensen Are you a groaner at the end of the semester? Are you wishing that you had studied and spent some of that wasted time on homework? Well, it's a little late now for first semester, but you have an entire sem- ester in which to redeem yourself. The attitude of many is that to be popular and well-liked, you must en- tirely forget the rules in school, and in- stead, spend the hours talking and writ- inff notes. Fm sure that your popularity won't go down at all if you settle downg instead, everyone will think much more highly of you. School work does get to be boring and gruesome after awhile, but re- member your grade record is going to stay with you for a long time, and it is important to make the best one possible. So if this first semester hasn't been too profitable, you might remember this for next semester, "Have fun, but don't forget the school work." NINTH Y-TEENS GIVE CHRISTMAS PARTY North's last 9th Y-Teens meeting was a Christmas party. Presiding was Susan Dix. The Christmas Story was read by Barbara Ray and Mrs. Lakin's fourth hour chorus sang carols. The characters in the story were: Diane Coffey, Maryg Julia Fisher, Joseph, Sharon Longhofer, Lynn Higday, Kath- lyn Hooper, wisemeng Olga Alexenko, Regina Silver, Beverly Ketchum, Frieda Lynch, and Pauline Haynes, shepherds. Two skits were also given, "The Gift of the Magi," and "After Christmas." Sally Crosby, Chris Block, Melva Mor- lock, J inna Rittenhouse, Carla Fry, Ann Payne, Connie Branstetter, Marcia Gronwald, Dale Hart, Viva Haymond, Bonnie Casto, Sharon McCall, Lynda Feather and Peggy Pederson portrayed the characters. "Santa Comes to Town" was also read by Margaret Cumen. To end the party they had treats of candy canes and red and white cup cakes. And Santa was there in person. Jack Todd finds Mr. Zerger's electro cuted hot dogs quite tasty as he eats one while waiting for another to "cook." FAMOUS SAYINGS OF FAMOUS PEOPLE Charles Roth-Search me! Sue Hinkle-Well, shooty-do! Jeff Rees-Now a word from my col- league. Marilyn Cohen-Did you hear about the ride I had with those boys from Colorado? gMr. Trimble-Keep those typewriters quiet! . , . Mrs. Brewer-Does anyone hear sleigh bells? Dan Austin-And now for the negative! John Litchman-Baaahh! Humbug! Rosslyn Johnson-Cherry Pie, anyone? Jan McAnnich-Mr. Burch, those prob- lems were just too hard to work .... Mrs. Batten-I seem to be hearing voices from somewhere in the back of the room. Miss Zimmerman-Go home, study for a half-an-hour and you will under- stand. Mr. Burch-Hand your papers to the person ahead of you and check. Suzanne Wilson-I want one of those white-glazed doughnuts. .... . "BAH-HUMBUG!" Those were the words of Ebenezer Scrooge played by John Litchman in the Christmas Carol presented Monday, December 19, at the Lincoln Auditor- ium. The first act took place in Scrooge's offices, where he was visited by three spirits: LeAnn Wingard, Lana Holder, and Betty Summers, and also Scrooge's business partner, Jacob Mar- ley played by Ted Coffman. The second act took place in the CUSTODIAN HAS INTERESTING PAST Mr. Seymour, one of the custodians in the Lincoln building, seems to have had a very interesting past full of ex- periences. In 1899, Mr. Seymour was driving a stage from Rock River, Wyoming, to Garret, Wyoming, which was about sixty miles. It was in the winter and there was a blizzard, so he decided to try to go through in a sleigh. There were high ridges and the horses fell through a washout. He had to pack snow around their feet so that they could get out. It was getting dark, so he decided to go to sleep. He then let the horses loose so that they could find some food. When he woke up, the horses were gone and some wolves had taken his supplies. He decided to walk to the nearest ranch which was the Half-Way Ranch. When he got there, he was cold and tired and the bottoms of his feet had frozen. He then ate and rested. The horses were found two weeks later by some rancher. Mr. Seymour emerged unharmed from the episode and just added one more adventure to his adventuresome life. Cratchit household where the changed Scrooge spent Christmas Day. Peter Cratchit: Mike Cope, Mrs. Cratchit: Suzanne Wilson, Belinda: Betty Strat- man, small girl: Sheryl Myers, small boy: Carolyn DeLaney, Tiny Tim: Steve Burns, Bob Cratchit: Randy Snook. The play was a popular success. EIGHTH GRADE BASKETBALL ROSTER The following eighth grade boys have been selected to try to give us a winning score at every eighth grade basketball game: Milton Van Gundy David Page, Jim Cruce, Bob Wehling, Kenny Long, Bruce Hocking, Denny Culley, Allen Faring, Terry Thomas, Thomas Sneath, Dudley Bush, Allan Jones, Bob Jones, Craig Roberts, Jim Kent, John Block, and David Fosbinder. The person who will do the most to give us a good score each game is the coach, Mr. Hewitt. Manager is Bob Caldwell. SEVENTH BASKETBALL SQUAD The following boys are on the 7th grade basketball squad: Lynn Buehler, Mike Smith, Robert Montgomery, Bill Woods, Dennis Davis, Melvin Daniels, Mark Miller, Jim Bary, Dan Magathan, John Tilton, John McCormick, Charles Gadson, Richard Dahl, Charles Booker, and Richard Schmidberger. The managers are: Gary Riedel and Roger Lawson. Their coach is Mr. Tally. Although these boys do not get much of a chance to play this year, they will get good experience to make a good team next year. SCREAM LOUDER! By Marsha Kresge The other day when I attended our basketball games, I noticed that stu- dents from the school we were playing against were screaming much louder and had much more pep! They had a smaller group, yet they were being peppier and yelling with the cheerleaders more than our group was. It just makes me feel like a mouse! The basketball team needs support to be able to win its games and if we don't, give it to them, who will? Let's really show pep, energy, and really root for our team next time so they will know that somebody wants them to win the game! "DIGNITARY" VISITS BOYS' GYM On December 13, Mr. Weidmer, who teaches boys physical ed. in the barn received a visitor. This "visitor" walk- ed on four legs and had a long tail with shaggy fur.'You guessed it--it was a cat! "He just came in to get warm, we called him--or her Cwe were not sure what he wash our portable mousetrapf' said Mr. Weidmer. Apparently the visitor got 'tired of Mr. Weidmer's company, or perhaps it thought it warm enough to go back outside, but he has not been seen since. We hope he enjoyed his stay. l l Weston Sampson stands next to his valuable collection of American and foreign gold coins. GOLD SUPPLY NO PROBLEM FOR SEVENTH GRADER Weston Sampson, seventh grader at North, has a hobby which everyone likes, he collects money. Weston has built up a collection of gold coins worth over 5500. This has taken him four years to do. He believes it has been worth it. Today he has a complete type set of all the varieties of liberty and In- dian-headed gold coins ranging in date from 1854 to 1926. He also has a few French and Egyptian specimens his father brought him. Weston's favorite coin is a three-dollar piece which is valued at 35100. Weston's collection started four years ago when his father found a twenty- dollar gold piece and gave it to him. At the moment, Weston is still trying for a perfect collection of American gold with a quest for a rare two-dollar coin. This is one person who is not worried about our gold supply! SEVENTH AND EIGHTH WIN OVER JUNCTION CITY The seventh and eighth grade basket- ball teams won over Junction City, Monday, December 19. The eighth grade team won 30-24 and the seventh grade won 23-21 in an overtime battle for their second straight triumph.

Coach for this team is Mr. Trimble. Managers are Richard Rice and Dennis Haynes. NINTH GRADE OPENS SEASON WITH 28 to 37 DEFEAT BY SOUTH December 8, 1960, proved to be a black day for the ninth grade basket- ball team when the A squad lost to South, 28 to 37. The coup de grace fol- lowed when the B squad lost also to South, 27 to 17. The starting line-up for the North A squad was as followsg Charles Roth, Frank Roth, Duane Cain, Jerry Decker and Othello Medows. The starting line- up for South was: Mike Lamone, Dave Tufte, Gary Dodd, Steve Walsh and John Martin, Othello Meadows was high scorer for North with 11 points. The high-point man for South was John Martin. TEACHERS GET HOME AT 4:30 A. M. Snow turned a shopping trip for Miss Boyd, Miss Cloyes, and Miss Davis into an unforgettable experience. Leaving Salina at noon, December 10, they planned to go to the matinee performance of Music Man. Howe-Ver, rain slowed them down, and instead of seeing the show, they spent the afternoon shopping, despite the rain. After trudging to about five shoe stores, they finally purchased some shoes. Before going to the evening Aper- fcrmance of Music Man. they decided to rest their weary feet at Innes's Tea Room. However, all three forgot the time and when they looked at their watches, it was 8:20 p. m. and the show started at 8:30 p. m. So there was noth- ing to do but go out in the falling snow and run Cin high heeled shoesb three blocks to the Forum, where the Music Man was playing. Fortunately, they made it just in the nick of time. Upon leaving the musical, they dis- covered the snow was about an inch deep, but they decided to try to make it to 'Salina anyway. N- After five hours of slipping and slid- ing on icy roads, they finally got home at 4:30 in the morning. il 1 ,. I'm sure you will agree that this was a very unusual and eventful day for our three teachers from Salina. Vol. X No. 6 Friday, February 17, 1961 North Junior High, Salina, Kansas' "Oh.

Mike Stano watches the surprised, excited reaction of Lois that many other girls will have when they receive something special from that .someone special on Valentine's Day. LOCKER CHECK A GOOD IDEA Locker check, held by the school each semester, is one way to get lockers clean -in a hurry. It also helps to find- lost books and clothing. During the week .of January 16-20, alocker check was held which revealed aroundfifteen misplaced library books in Lincoln alone. One boy found, in his own locker, a book he had lost ia month. before.

I think teachers are not strict enough in that they let their classes run out on the second bell without the teacher saying, "You're excused!" Mr. Symington, who used to be a shop tea- cher at North said that the last bell was not an automatic dismissalg it merely meant that the time alloted for the period was up. This problem, I have no- ticed, is mainly prevalent in mathemat- ics classes. I firmly believe that the student should show more respect to the teacher, by not leaving just as soon as the second bell rings. THE GATHERING OF THE "NUTS" Every morning before 8:30 a. m. the "nuts" seem to gather in the east end of Lincoln on the second floor. These "nuts" are of a very strange variety. They are known as "teenagernuts." 'These "nuts" gather in a group and just gget in the way. It is all right to visit in the halls but not in such large groups. I also think that the library is much 'too noisy in the morning. As you may ihave heard, the "nuts" hold their screaming contests in the library. The library is a place to study not a place to see which "nut" can yell the loudest. I think the libraries should be a little more quiet, and the halls should be less conjested. So, quit gathering, NUTS. DON'T KNOCK IT This editorial will :be worth your time to read, because it is not like the usual editorial. If you are one of the people who complain about the food at the cafe- teria, I suggest you look around and see where you can get a main dish, a vegetable, always bread of some sort, a dessert, and one carton of milk for thirty cents. For three years I've heard too many complaints about the cafe- teria. The people in the cafeteria are trying to "break even" on the lunches, not make a profit. , I think that people should use their heads a little bit and wake up and realize how good our lunches are. TI-IE DREAM OF A VALENTINE Icame from a forest, tall and large, I floated down the river, in a barge. My next stop was to the saw mill paid, And then in a sheet of paper, I was 1 made. Now, as I lie on the artist's table I hope that I will be able To bring someone a little joy, Man, woman, girl, or boy. The artist upon his work is set, For there is a deadline to be met. On that day, cards are sent of all kinds. It is the day of Valentines. He made me gay and bright, The verse on me is just right. I am feeling happy, too, Since my dream has just come true. A valentine is what I've wanted to be, So that everyone might know and see How pretty and cheerful I am to behold And the message of love I have to be told. TO MARS OR NOT TO MARS- THAT IS THE QUESTION By Jeff Rees Are flying saucers real? According to Cedric Allingham, they are. Cedric Allingham is a writer who makes as- stronomy his hobby. He claims that 9076 of the saucer sightings are falseg how- ever, he says that the other 10'Z1 must be real. He also claims that he has talk- ed with a saucer pilot from Mars. In his book, Flying Saucers From Mars. he says that a Martian looks very much like an earthman except for a higher forehead. His colleague, George Adam- ski, says that he has talked with a man from Venus. . - - However, Mr. Zerger, the ninth grade science teacher at North Junior High, says that the earth is probably the only inhabited planet' in 'our solar system. This, he says, is because of the lack of air on Mars and the poisonous gases on Venus. , Whether or not there are men on the planet has been a subject for controver- sy for many years now. If we ever go to Mars will we find thriving cities or barren deserts spotted by meteor crat- ers? I would like to have your opinion on this matter. Please send your com- ments to'Publications class, room 15, Lincoln. I'1l have to end this nowg I just saw something land out on the school ground. SECONDS I-'OR SURVIVAL "Seconds for Survival" was the title of the film shown to the Eighth and Ninth Grade Boys Club meeting held January 19. This film, put out by the "Bell Tele- phone Company, showsd the boys how Snooper The snooper has been quite busy this time getting timely little tidbits of in- formation. First thing I noticed was that there was an out-of-order sign on the girls' restroom in Roosevelt. Was it really out of order? What great deed did Jerry Decker do that he should receive all the con- gratulations? How about that, Decker? It's geting so Mr. Zerger's science class is not a safe place anymore. Nice Girls don't kick gentlemen, Karole Lull and Betty Summers. Are your shins still badly bruised, Loren Peif- fer? Sensible people just don't perfume their underwear, Jerry. It seems as though Barbara Iliff and Vickie Agin had something in their eyes during Miss Cloyes's fourth hour, or were you winking at each other? Ask Robert Gobat who he was think- ing about when Miss Boyd caught him day dreaming, or should you ask, Deb- bie? AND THE SEASONINGS GO SLIDING ALONG Let us halt the sliding of pepper andi salt. "Salt! yelled someone trying to- season his food so it would be worth eating at the lunch table. "Zoom!" came the salt like a bat out of "noWhere."' It hit the end of another table and pow- ie! " It spilled all over another person's food. This should not have happened This is a case history of what happens when someone, very innocently, asks for salt Cor pepperl in our cafeteria. The solution is quite simple. Everyone should hand the salt to one another very politely, being careful not to drop- it on other people's food. Another thing that often happens when someone does pass the salt polite- ly, is "short-stopping." This is when one person asks for pepper for salt! and. several other people use it before passing it on. This is had-manners. and should be stopped. A "SHARP" TANGO If you saw some ninth graders come- out of assembly January 13 doing the tango, don't think they're a bunch of "odd-balls." They had just heard a very "catchy" tune played by the North Jr. High Band under the direction of Mr. Watters. - -- Besides the tango,,the .band played some marches and classical music. They also demonstrated. some of the unusual instruments. Most of those hearing the band which is made up of seventh, eighth and ,ninth graders seemed to me United states is prepared to take ,t11ir1k,that We have an exceptional band action if weiare ever attacked. for the junior high age. TALENT SHOW FOR SUGAR AND SPICE The presiding officer was Virginia Roe as the January 6 meeting of Sugar and Spice began. Many girls partici- pated in this program in the order as lows: The processional was played by Jayce Dalrymple, followed by an ac- cordian solo, "William Tell Overture," by Kay Wright. Following her, were two girls, Helen Youngdahl and Kathy Seymour, who played a clarinet duet. Rachel Rice did a twirling routine and Connie Tyler did a pantomlime, "Sway." Cheryl Longbine played an accordian solo "Squeeze Box Rock," followed by an acrobatic act done by Cheryl Hemphel. Mary Lou Hasker ac- companied Sheila Lane as she played a clarinet solo, "Swing Low, Sweet Chariot." Shirley Smith played "Starlight Waltz" on the piano after which askit, "Early in the Morning," was presented. The actors were Regina Fuller, Mary Anne Moore, and Shirley Johnson. Sherrie Lakin played a flute solo and an accordian solo was played by Bon- ita Miller, The recessional was played by Debbie Cushman. MISS GUTHALS TEACHES ENGLISH AND HISTORY Another new taecher at our North Jr. High is Miss Mary Ann Guthals. She teaches eighth grade social studies and English in Lincoln, room 23. Miss Guthals went to college in Mc- Pherson where she majored in history. She now is rooming with another new teacher, Miss Boyd. Her hobby is music, so she enjoys listening to classical records. Her pet peeves Clike so many other teachers'J are students who forget their books and don't finish their assignments on time. STUDENTS ABUSE NEW 'LOCKER LOCKS! ' 'cently, at a considerable cost to taxpayers, new locks were put on st of the lockers in Lincoln Building. student body wanted them, their s and fathers as taxpayers paid 'for them, and now they have them. However, we find them a waste of 'money because the people who were losing books and demanding new locks 'are now abusing them. They leave the lockers open, they tell their friends 'the combination, and now they have -started to lose books and other articles :and they really don't know why! It is :simply their own fault and their own 'tough luck! As I stated before these locks were tpaid for out of our parents' and others' ttaxes. They invested their money for jyou. Don't W disappoint them! Recognize any of these "O1d Timers?" This is a group of our eighth Y-Teens dressed up in honor of Centennial celebrations. SHORT SKIRTS ARE FOR FLIRTS I have noticed CHow could I help but do so!J many girls' skirts are much shorter than necessary. Short skirts, like the ones many girls are wearing now, are too short when they come above the knees when the girl is stand- ing up. I feel that it is all right to be dif- ferent, but let us not get too different. I would like to commend a recent plan adopted by Miss Bucknell in regards to the short-skirt fad. "lf a skirt is so short that a girl has to spend the period keeping it down over her knees, I will let her stand the rest of the hour!" so says Miss Bucknell. I do not want to seem a spoil-sport, but it is my opinion that the short skirts are for flirts. TEACHERS AND PARENTS MEET The Earlybirds entertained the teachers and parents at the P. T. A. meeting, January 24, with two num- bers. Mrs. Clyde Turner, president, presided. Devotions were given by Reverend Swindle. Superintendent of Schools, Mr. W. M. Ostenberg, was the speaker of the evening. He spoke on "Legislative Priorities for 1961" which are to be considered this year by our state leg- islature. A twenty minute film was shown of the Comprehensive Educational Sur- vey. This movie pointed out that there could be no more fitting observance of the Kansas Centennial than to strength- en our educational system by correct- ing the weakness shofwn by the Com- prehensive Educational Survey. Two of these are: The retirement plans for teachers and plans to make arrange- ments for all students not living with- in walking distance of schools to be provided with transportation. CANDLES HIGHLIGHT - SUGAR AND SPICE Glowing candlelight set the scene as the seventh grade Sugar and Spice girls had their candlelight services at St. John's Church January 13. Mary Ann, Moore gafve a verse from the Bible, followed by Mrs. Lakin's group singing "Donum Nobis Patiu.m." An- other verse was then given by Mary Ann. Mrs. Lakin's .group sang "Beau- tiful Saviour." The new Sugar and Spice officers told about the meaning of Sugar and Spice. Then the ushers led the girls out. NINTH GIRLS GET BEAUTY AID How should you wear your hair? How should you put on make-up, and how should you dress? These were some of the many questions answered at the ninth grade Y-Teens meeting, January 20. The girls went around to booths, as girls from Miss Armour's fifth and sixth hour demonstrated various things about one's appearance and good grooming. Helen Harrell presided over the meeting. Jane Holgerson gave the pray- er, and Bernadine Breer read the scriptures. FAMOUS WORDS OF FAMOUS PEOPLE Carol Christensen-Stupendous! Liz Hoover-Let's eat! Ted Coffman- You look cute today.

HONESTY IS BEST POLICY Do straying eyes ever bother you at test time? This is a very bad habittto start and could possibly lead to other, even worse, deeds. A sure-fire remedy for this straying- eye sickness would be that "old tonic," studying. I am sure after, a few doses of this wonder drug you will soon be on your way to better grades and more honesty in the classroom. I .I , Many students are also going by the policy, "I'll wait until tomorrow "and get it from ." This may look like a good trick and save them a little time and effortybuti what happens at test time? Most of these students" then find themselves at a loss as to what to do. Not only do-they lack the' know- ledge they would have gained had they, themselves, done their own homework, but they also .lose respect for them- selves and favor in the sight of others. DECIQINING or Kiss Kiss is a verb because it shows action. Kiss is a noun because it is the name of something. ' , ' Kiss is an adjective because it de- scribes. Kiss is a conjunction because it links two people. When an attractive young madam- oiselle asked a serviceman stationed in France what G. I. meant, he .looked at her c a r efully and t replied "g i rl inspector." ' ' ' There once was a maid in Siam Who said to her boy friend, Kiam, "If you kiss me, of course, You will have to use force, But thank goodness you're stronger than I am."
