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.
