Q s-Jil' SWANTON HIGH SCHOOL Swanton, Ohio hor s e , but a 1952 Ford bus. We're off, hitting every bump, being tossed backward and forward, up and down, but always r e a c hing o ur destination, the little red school house of Swanton High. We shall make our exit s lowly for I have learned it is useless to even try to depart from an over-loaded bus by shoving, Since the boy in the seat behind us ate my lunch I plan to eat at the cafeteria, Upon entering the building we find groups of students standing around talking. The people are not all girls either as you find hundreds of mouths going like fury telling fr i end s what has happened since they last saw each other . It is amazing all the gossip that springs up in that 3:30- - 8:5 O period, We shall push our way past the s e people and try to find my locker. I can never re- member the number, but it really doesn't matter for my Eng li sh book is in Jane's locker, my shorthand noteb ook in Sue's, and that A me r i c an government book has probably been turned in at the office since I las t saw it yesterday. There's plenty of time before the bell rings, two rninutes, so I simply mus t comb my hair, talkin with YOU Mary about last night, and borrow now and come with me on a visit to the a pencil for the day. halls of SHS. So that you will not be no- ticed, and to pr e vent the students from acting differently with a visitor in their midst. pretend you have attained the body of a mouse. Climb into my pocket, but peek out whenever you wi s h , Be Careful not to fall out, for should you make your descent during the changing of classesyou would find your s e lf amidst a. thundering herd of stampeding students, Now off we go for a hectic day of high school antics, Our visit commences as we mount our trusty yellow steed and the driver steps on the gas pedal.

It seems that some prank- ster let the air out of the basketballs and phys ed classes are canceled for the day. Second period we visit journalism c la s s wh er e we find fifteen students sitting in nice soft lHa! 1. seats reading and clipping newspapers and old Hi-Lifes. After this class we have five minutes to get to thir d p er iod. Even with all this time, the halls still look like bargain dav at Maceys'. Only three minor casualties so far, but the day is still young. I hope you're a mou s e with a good coat of fur, for s ometime s this place gets so cold even the polar bears would evacuate. Our next class is that of scribbling and pounding, commonly c a l l e d , shorthand and typing. When I first started short- hand, it reminded me of the letter s my cousin and I us ed to wr it e to each other when we were s rna l l . And typing! I'm the one who kept the paper niills in bus- iness while I lear ne d which finger went where. Continuing our visit We enter the audito- rium wher e we find the sixty vocalists who compose the girls' glee c lub. The important thing to learn her e , is to talk to your neighbor and sing simultaneously, At noon, we hurr y to the cafeteria and even try "pushing the line", to no avail, and usually end up eating chili and prunes. In room 201 we study human r e lations, Reports are given weekly on topics vary- ing from dog food to nylons, The purpose of the class is for pupils to und er s tand their actions better, and from some gf the antics that go on, I'd call it "humo r relations", lContinued on page 87, SIIHUUL BUHHIJ Agnes Kline Vice President Dr. R.

The future sen- iors have worked hard all year raising money for the an- ual Junior -Senior Prom sponsored by the juniors, One of the main sources used by the juniors to raise rev- enue has been selling candy at noon and after school to the students, and also at the football and basketball games. Another source is the junior class play.

The Bull- dogs have always been noted for their high degree of sportsmanship, .and this will be more important to the individual player in the long run. If a game ceases to be fun, itis no longer a game, Swanton teams have probably derived more fun from par- ticipation in athleti c events than many of their opponents. SHS did K1 J ,LL fx, Wy, 3 I5 is ' A not always win, but when it did -- Oh, how it won! Do you remember Ros- ChI1'18.21i1'S touchdown runback of an in- tercepted Maumee pass whichg a v 'Q Swanton a 12 to 6 victory on the last play of the game? Or the big game when the Bulldogs held D e lta four inches from a touchdown at the final gun to preserve a 12 to 7win? These were sweet victories, but not "pres- sure" victories. It is too bad when a school will disownits teams, or ride its coach, unless, they come up with a winner every year.
