STUDENT BODY ACHIEVEMENTS Much honor was broughl to the Castle during the year 1942-1943 by the co-operation of students in deiense organizations, the participation of students in athletic and scholastic contests, and the prompt response of all to several charities. WAR ACTIVITIES The first and most important achievement of the Knights and Ladies was the war bond and stomp drive. The sales were token care of in homeroom so successfully that they increased steadily with e┬╗ery month. Finally the day came when the Minute Man Flag was raised over the Castle, symbolizing the fact that ninetly per cent of our student body is investing in bonds or stamps. During this time Lynwood also look active part in collecting scrap, in raising funds for the Red Cross, in a " six a week " jeep drive, and in collecting old candles and cans to make night lights for the soldiers. Contributing model airplanes to government training stations, making U.S.O. scrapbooks, and sending presents to former students in the service was another phase of Lynwood ' s war effort. Two patriotic parades were participated in by Lynwood high school students. The Armistice Day parade in which homerooms, gym classes, band, and other school organiza- tions entered was praised highly by the community. On December 7, the band marched to the Victory House in the middle of town where it played patriotic numbers while bonds were being sold. ASSEMBLIES One of the most interesting assemblies presented this year was the Hi Jinx, a set of acts put on by talented students of the Castlet. The proceeds from the program were giv- en to the P.T.A on " Back-to-School " night drama classes enacted a timely poetical drama, " They Burned the Books, " The most outstonding under the direction of Mr. Tom Bastyr and Mr. Harold M. Anderson was the Christmas Pageant, consisting of scenes depicting the birth ol Cnrist with a musical setting of Christmas songs. CHARITIES Forty-five dollars were sent to the National Transcribers Association for the Blind to pay for braille books in appreciation of the fine program given before the asembled student body by that organization. The March of Dimies was a great success this year. Into the scholarship fund went the proceeds of a basketball and a baseball game between the Squire and Yeom.an organizations. CONTESTS Many art students at the Castle entered the annual Poppy Poster Contest. In the field of writing every seventh and eighth grader who sent an essay to the Latham Foundation Essay contest won a place. This is the first time in the history of the organization that such an event has taken place. All Knights and Ladies also participated in the essay contest on " Making America Strong " sponsored by the Auxiliary to the Veterans of Foreign Wars. The annual reading and speaking contest brought forth the best efforts of many students. PUBLICATIONS A revised and enlarged handbook was printed for new students of the Castle. For the second year anthology containing the creative writing efforts of students in each English class was published. DISBURSEMENTS Money belonging to the student body was used wisely this year for the benefit of the students. Colorful pi ctures were placed in each room, a large war bond was purchased, and two motion pictures were presented for the enterainment of the student body. EXHIBIT Climaxing this school year, every boy and girl displayed work accomplished in each class at the exhibit held in the Castle gymnasium on May 20. fourteen
