Help Special Skills and Interest Bloom Who can tell what hidden talents lurk within those friends seen daily but never really known? Perhaps the student in the next seat in algebra is secretly composing a symphony, or writing a mystery story or searching for the perfect shade of blue to complete his landscape. Maybe a person ' s hobby is less hidden ■ — collecting matchbook covers, knitting sweaters, building model aircraft. Other students find joy in the popular diversion of reading. Some spare time activities cause problems. Where is one to store a quarter of a ton of rocks? How is a worried mother convinced that scuba diving is absolutely safe, and good exercise, too? When can a person find time to dig under those stacks of priceless magazine articles on ice fishing, or hi-fi records, or Hungarian recipes or books on modern art to find a history paper or tardy theme? True, hobbies are sometimes a nuisance; but they also help to lend a spark of individuality to those, who, like many others ' have no claim to fame besides studying.

Individual Hobbies, Varsity Varieties Boasting acts that ranged from an old-fashioned minstrel show to a harrassed husband fearfully trying to teach his wife the fundamentals of driving, the " Dixiebelle Show- boat " flashed past the North Side landing midst a shim- mering spectacle of lights and colors. Presented in two acts, the show opened wtih the entire company vocalizing " Swanee, " and " Alabamy Bound. " Highlights were two modern dance numbers, " Danger Man " and " Steam Heat; " a song-and-dance number called " Mississippi Mud; " an unusual treat from Scotland featur- ing a bag-pipe solo; and a humorous, yet effective-sounding boys ' quartet in " Tropic Tropics. " As the curtain rose on the second act, the audience found some gals from the hills trying to convince the bearded gents that it was " Sugartime. " An atempt at magic followed, and ended with the magician knotted in a strait- jacket. An unusual dance number, spotlighted by clever lighting techniques then demonstrated the dancing talents of several Redskins. The predicaments facing those who travel by air was satirized in the skit, " The High and the Flighty. " The second half was a singing one as vocal solos enthrawled those watching, while the climax was reached in the unique finale, " Dream Fantasy. " Roper Haverfield puts the finishing touches of makeup on Jay Feichter. 2

From the moment an individual enters a kindergarten classroom for the first time to the day on which he com- pletes his formal education, his mind is being trained to think and reason. As he progresses from a small child to an adolescent and finally to an adult, his teachers and his text books are guiding him into and qualifying him for the role of a responsible, mature member of society. Although Redskins seek to develop themselves socially and physically as well as mentally, it is the academic aspect of the high school years which is the reason for the exist- ence of the school system; and in this direction students ' greatest efforts should be aimed. The hours of working at home and listening attentively in the classroom are not spent uselessly, for the knowledge acquired becomes a part of each North Sider, preparing him to meet better the challenges of the future. 14
