During the hours devoted to study, students prepare their lessons for
their forthcoming classes. At least two hours a day are reserved for the pupils
in which they have ample time to complete any outside work the teacher
may assign. Here, in this large study hall, they have an opportunity to study
in silence and use the well-suplied library in the adjoining room.
These books furnish the required references and reading material for
S.,ljl.. S. students, when the requirements are made for students to look up
addition l t ' l h' h ' ' '
a ma eria w ic cant be found in their textbooks.
As a supplement to home training
in the rudiments of homemaking,
S. H, S. offers a fine Home Economic
Department containing modern equip-
ment for first hand experience in cook-
ing and sewing. Under a three-vear plan
all phases ot home management, in-
cluding care of sick, baby care, food
preservation, etc., are presented these
"future homemakers of America".

For the third consecutive year Kathleen Mc-
Kay has won first place in the local and district
contests, thus enabling her to go on to the
Regional contests where she received excellent
ratings. Having participated in declam since
her freshman year, she has always entered the
humorous divisions in which she has brought
many honors to the school.
From the students who participated in
declam at the local contest, four were
selected to go on to the District Contest
held at Lead. They are K. McKay, humor-
ous, B. Coacher, oratory, O. Bender, poe-
try, and not appearing B. Alexander,
dramatics. Of these, K. McKay received
a superior rating, and the others received
excellent ratings thus winning a tie with
Lead for the District Contest.
Having already proved to be an out-
standing declam student, Bill Coacher
has also excelled in debate and extemp.
At three invitational debates held this
year, he took three lsts. in Extemp.,
and at Philip he won 2nd. in Original

most effective variations has been to twirl in

Shown above in a familiar position is the coach
loved and respected by all who know him-the
"champ" to whom we proudly dedicate this, our I948
Mato Paha, Coach Buell Woodle, in the past two years,
has turned out two champion football teams and two
champion basketball teams-a feat which any man
would endeavor to emulate and be justly proud if that
honor were attained,
Through his unfailing devotion to his work and
friendly guidance to his team, he has not only won the
admiration and backing ot the townsfolk, but he has
built up a group of fine, clean American men who will
reveal, in later years, the training received in their
high school career.
For these and numerous unmentioned accom-
plishinents, Coach Woodle, we salute youl
Coach B. W. Woodle
