Kindergarten Life 2-1, 2-2 6-1, 6-2 Elementary Earns Jeep The blast of a bugle and the beat of a drum brought the elementary school into the street to see the jeep, representing the war stamps bought by the children. The youngsters really cheered when Mrs. Sigler climbed into the back seat and went for a spin. Everyone was excited as the jeep rode up onto the sidewalk and got stuck in a pile of snow, but a cheer rose when it plowed through. These little tykes really earned the delight and joy received when "real" soldiers brought the jeep to Ottawa. The elementary department also participated in the Red Cross and scrap drives. The younger pupils have been concentrating on the geography of the war, nutrition, and physical fitness of the American Life. Maps were studied and collections made from weekly newspapers and magazines. To end their year, the elementary rooms studied foreign lands and how they affect our country through imports, exports, and the production of vital war materials. A visit from a real army jeep was the fitting climax to the "jeep" war stamp campaign of the elementary school in which the pupils bought more than 31,000 worth of stamps in six weeks. The student committee which planned the campaign was composed of Dick Cook, David Gray, Ross Springer, and jerry Steketee. These boys were given a ride in the jeep at the end of the ceremony.

Contrary to the opinion of some pupils. teachers do not like to dis- appoint their charges with low grades, Here is Mr. Fuehrer Con- fronted with the task of giving each student what he deserves. A Government of the People This year even the debating class stressed the importance of our all-out war ettort with the question: "Resolved that a federal world government should be established", even though the tirst altirmative team did miss the last bus to the State Debate Tournament and had to take a taxi. Mr. Fuehrer's government classes sat in on at trial in court. Some pupils became so interested that they followed the ease through to the end. History, too, gives us a wider knowledge of the world, while economies teaches us why business is as it is. Ottawa's debaters. Standing: Cherryman, XX'ilson. Steibel, Duff Timmer. Matteson.
