Achievements o By SHIRLEY STOVING 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 tOlympicJ Forshaw, 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 ,rim-. -.-.- .is ',:,,:,:v,:5f-55-Q-V --.- 1.::.,-...,..r v:::-:-:-.,1:-a,:,,,,,,,.,g.,,.. ,M f X .f i If 5 , 'W V' .X Q A ' ,XR r t f V A 've' .

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. .g..g..g..g..g .g..Q..g..g..g..g..g..g..g..g.....q..g..q..Q..g.....g..g.....g..'..,... 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 he knows. 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.
