This year at Central has been crowded with
activity. The young-old school, in its ninety-
sixth year, has held her own, Hin, the midst of
noise and bustle of the city's life." Perhaps
the most significant feature of the year has been
a revival or re-emphasis of so-called extra-cur-
ricular activities, including athletics, under the
guidance of our principal, Mr. E. W. Alex-
ander, who instituted a weekly 'AActivity Day,"
and brought to us many exciting special pro-
grams and auditorium sessions, notably a visit
to the boys of the school by Stanley fBaseballD
Musial, Ed tBasketballj McCauley, and Joseph
In September four new teachers, Miss Sprague,
Mrs. Finley, Miss Mastorakos, and Coach
Vv'eber, entered the faculty, and Mr. W. R.
Layer came to us as Assistant Principal, joining

ur Ninety-Sixth Year
The feature event in October was Color Day.
On the fifteenth of that month, eighty-eight
proud and excited seniors were presented with
the traditional colors of Central High. Mr.
Biggar. our teacher of instrumental music for
several years, departed for Denver, Colorado, on
October twenty-seventh. Also occurring on this
date was a mock presidential election of which
Truman was the winner. Once more it was
shown that 'ias Central goes, so goes the na-
tion." Perhaps someone should tell the radio
announcers that Central has picked the winner
in the last ten presidential elections. The seniors
and new seniors both held their Hrst outings
in the latter part of this month.
The main event of November was a carnival,
which was given by the music groups to raise
money for choir robes. A king and queen,
Mary Hodge and Lou Aiello, respectively, were
crowned to preside at the affair. Mr. Walter H.
Wilcox, an alumnus of Central High School.
presented a Hammond Organ to the school.
Mr. Panus, our new instructor of instrumental
music, joined the faculty. A meeting of the
All-City Student Council was held at Central
on November eighth. Dolores Malon and Jim
Pendleton represented Central.
SENSE AND NONSENSE
A Freshman - One who knows not and
knows not that he knows not.
A Sophomore-One who knows not and
knows that he knows not.
A Junior,-One who knows and knows not
that he knows.
A Senior-One who knows and knows that
Before I heard the doctor tell
The danger of a kiss,
l had considered kissing you
The nearest thing to blsis,
But now I know biology
And sit alone and moan-
Six million mad bacteria-
And I thought we were alone.
