Desert Howl Wins Many Honors " I TOLD YOU to get that theater ad three days ago. Where is it? " " Where ' s the correction fluid? " " If you people don ' t get your stories in on time, we ' ll cut the paper down two pages each issue. " These were the frequent battle cries that were heard in the journalism class as the year 1948-49 passed quickly on the calendar. But never discouraged, the class put forth much effort and came through with flying colors. Through the work and guidance of Mr. Borg, and with the assistance of two editors, Carol Crosley and Bill Lynn, the DESERT HOWL became one of the best mimeographed papers in Arizona, in spite of the lack of adequate room. This bi-monthly publication was read with interest by parents, alumni, and adult sub- scribers, as it grew in size and content through the course of the year. With extras appear- ing for all the important events, the senior journalists have been one of the most busily and noisily occupied classes in L.H.S. The school paper has won many prizes, and is a member of the Quill and Scroll Society, and has always done its best in presenting the news to the student body. On May 7 of this year the Desert Howl won first place among the mimeographed papers in the annual state contest for school newspapers conducted by the University of Arizona.

Bahn has given pleasure to numerous audiences during the school year. Early in the season the choir broadcast from the Arizona State Fair a program in con- junction with bands from other Valley schools. Also early in December the choir was featured over KOY on Bill Lester ' s program, " Caval- cade of Christmas Music. " At the annual Christmas Pageant at L.H.S. the beauty of the Christmas story and the tableaux were greatly enhanced by the choir ' s singing the familiar Christmas carols as well as such numbers as " Beautiful Savior, " " March of the Three Kings, " and " Today There Is Ringing. " On March 15, Music Night, the choir sang both religious and secular selections. Among the former were " Adoranus Te Christe, " " Cherubim Song, " " To Thee We Sing, " and " Thee with Tender Care. " " It ' s a Grand Night for Singing, " " Oh, What a Beautiful Morning, " " The Erie Canal, " and " This Is My Country " were the secular numbers. The girls ' trio composed of La Nell Henry, Corinne Dudley, and Jean Cunningham sang the Brahm ' s ' Lullaby. " A boys ' trio, Elwood Gaillard, George Jamison, and Bill Lynn told the story of the Piazza Tragedy in song. (48)
