The school paper offers an opportunity for high school stu- dents to practice the fundamentals of journalism. Members of the staff have learned not only to write the news, but to publish it as well. The commerce department, headed by Miss Haines, was of tremendous help in instituting a system of cooperative production. During the first semester, the department took over the typing and mimeographing almost completely. Later, however, it helped to shift this work to the staff itself. This has been the tenth year in the history of the Beacon's publication. Under the helpful guidance of Miss Burns, faculty advisor, the staff had striven to live up to the precedent set in former years. Circulation has been up, issues have been larger, and the paper's proceeds have been greater than ever before. Several special issues were published including the last one, a printed edi- tion containing the Senior Prophecy, Class Wfill, and news of the senior trip. New columns, such as "Fads and Fashions," "Inter- views," reviews of books in our library, and letters from former students and teachers have been introduced. Gordon Beld instituted his "Sports in the Showers" column and the Beacon sponsored a short story contest, Lucille Jones, exchange editor, brought Wyom- ing the latest from other schools while Sally Lous covered ele- mentary news for a new feature. i29fl

Early in the second semester, selected members of the class of "44" went to work with enthusiasm, to produce not just another "Orbit," but a yearbook which the class can publish with pride. Phyllis Freeberg was chosen Editor-in-Chief. W'irh the able assistance of her two associates, Betty Breese and Clair De Mull, Phyllis worked very hard to accomplish the task of organizing the book. The fellow who stayed up nights to write some of these articles, was the Literary Editor, jack Round. Don Early did a splendid job as Sports Editor. Photography Editor was Bill Chand- ler. Did he have his worries! No film. His associate was Esther Wfilliams. The honors for the "Orbit" assembly and the increased sub- scriptions, go to the Business Manager, Gay jellema and her associ- ate, john Peppler. There is no doubt but that without the advisement, encourage- ment, and drive of our advisor, Mr. Zylstra, the 'lOrbit" would not have been the success it is. 11281

The plot became rather complicated when our "almost eighteen" youth, Eddie, played by Eugene Hoffert, had ideas about becoming a successful crooner like Crosby. He must earn his own money for the completion of his ambi- tions to go away to school, for his father opposed them. His troubles began when he decided to enter a contest. His uncle George meant to aid him, but accidentally he sent the wrong manuscript which was really copied from some book. There was great excitement until all was finally straight- ened out, and Eddie was cleared of this suspected treachery.
