' ' f if 1 JUNE 1952
YEAR SPENT AT BEHRMAN IS HAPPY ONE
FOR EXCHANGE TEACHER FROM ENGLAND
By Janet Bond
Although she has spent only
a few months in Behrrnan as
one of the' teachers brought
to America under the exchange
program jointly sponsored by
America and England. Mns.
Jesse Ellis has endeared her-
self to everyone she has met.
The students love her and
teachers, principal, and the
many friends she has made
in and around New Orleans
will say good-bye reluctantly
when Mrs. Ellis sails in Aug-
ust for her home in Batley,
"America is so different,"
Mrs. Ellis exclaimed, her blue
eyes twinkling. "But I love
all of it? And indeed, by the
time she returns to England
she will have seen more of
America than most of
us who are its natives. A
young lady of wide interests,
Mrs. Ellis has always en-
joyed traveling, and has made
the most of ner opportunues here in me U1l.ll,CL,l States to do some sightseeing. She
has been to Texas and Florida and plans to drive to California in June. Before
coming to America and Algiers, she had been to Egypt and India, and had
traveled through most of her native England. '
At home in Batley, a small industrial town set in the English rnoors, Mrs.
Ellis teaches Social Studies at the Princess Royal School. When asked how
American children compare with English -students, she replied, "To me, children
are the same everywhere, but I do think that Behrman students are more lively
and energetic than the boys and girls in England." Though Mrs. Ellis has only
'been here a short time, it seems that we have known her for years. Her broad,
lilting English accent makes her a true "Britisher," but her enthusiam for America
makes us feel that her year here has already made her one of us. In February
Commissioner Glenn Clasen presented Mrs. Ellis, during an assembly in the
Behrman auditorium, with a key to the city. She was :made an honorary citizen
of New Orleans.
Behrman has been very happy to have you with us, Mrs. Ellis! We hope
that when you return to your home in Batley, you will often think of us and
remember with pleasure your year at Behrman.
The graduating class of June 1952 extends to Mr. Steidtmann,
members of the faculty and their guests, a cordial invitation to at-
tend the Senior Prom at the Skelly Gymnasium on Wednesday, .Tune-

TEACHING AND TRAVELING
By Janet Bond .
Miss Margaret Hymel, eighth grade teacher of Behrman, who went to
England under the exchange system, hais found an unnsual lway of keeping her
friends and the people of Algiers informed of her experiences and travels. The
interesting and informartive letters which she Writes home are published Wholly
or in part "The Algiers Herald," our local newspaper. These articles have been
read with interest and enjoyment by the subscribers of The Herald, and have
kept Miss Hymel in touch with her community in which she has played an im-
portant part for many years.
Miss Hymel, while at Behrman, taught eighth grade English and music.
She was quite active in school programsg last year Miss Hymel very capably
directed the senior class play. In theatrical work outside of Behrman, she was
president of the Algiers Little Theater last year.
In England Miss Hymel has taken the place of the English exchange teach-
er here at Behrman, Mrs. Jessie bllis, at the Pirincess Royal School, in Batley,
England. Like Mrs. Ellis, Miss Hymel has done as much sight-seeing in her spare
time as possible. She arrived in England in the latter part of July and traveled
about on the Continent, visiting France and Italy. She spent Christmas in Switzer--
land, and recenftly journeyed to Scotland and Ireland.
Miss Hymel will return to the United States in July of this summer, and
resume teaching at Behrman in September.

SENIORS RECEIVE LONG'-AWAITED RINGS AT 'CIRCUS' PARTY -
By Sally Ann Thomas
After waiting for what seemed an eternity-all of four years-Senior
students of Behrman High School received their class rings at a CIRCUS PARTY
sponsored by the Cooperative Club. The party 'Was held in the school basement.
Everyone came dressed as Circus perform-ersg there were clowns, a circus
band, chorus girls, and even a trained seal. Of course there was entertainment.
Each senior had to perform before he received his ring. A famous lion trainer
appeared, thrilling the audience as the lion became a lamb. Genuine Hawaiian
hula dancers were a treat. Squeals of delight were heard as the snakes danced
'to the charmer's tunes. The Ring Master called out the trainer with his hoops
and dogs.' A. human pyramid folloiwedg trained horses went through their paces.
Singers and dancers enticed many to try their chance at the "wheel of fortune"
When all had received their rings, delicious refreshments were served.
Unfortunately most good things come to an end, eve-n RING PARTIES. The
party ended and mingled with the usual "good night" were the excited voices
of eighty-four happy seniors chorusing "Have you seen my RING?"
