Carolyn Jurgens Robert Heckman
NO, MR. HITLER-YOU JUST DON'T TALK OUR LANGUAGE!
From across the seas, a voice screams, "The purpose of education is to create ihe political soldier ... in the case of female education, the main stress should be last of all on development of the intellect!"
No, Mr. Hitler!
America, of course, rejects such a creed as barbarous and perverted.
We believe in the democratic definition of education—education as a process of stimulating free minds and preparing vig-
orous intellects for living effectively and cooperatively.
Carolyn's original oration, "America's Green Pastures," defines our pride and belief in our country.
We Learn Outside the Classroom, Too
American education now extends far beyond school rooms. Forums of open, lusty, controversial debate on urgent political.
social, and economic issues are reaching audiences everywhere. Carolyn and Bob, as debaters, have reached many audiences, sharing, discussing democratic life, vividly presenting facts, truth, reality concerning this complex world—a world we must understand if our way of life is to endure.
We are proud of the contribution we are malting at PCHS in these crucial times toward the successful functioning of democracy.

"Orders" are unexpected in war time, and with little time to contemplate the "Advance," Mr. A. G. (Frenchy) Haussler took over the "command" in perfect form and after a few weeks in a difficult position, seems very much "at ease."
"Big Jim" Lewis became head coach and a new assistant coach is to be selected in the fall.
A military aspect settled over PCHS in the early doys of the war. Principal F. M. Peterson organized First-Aid classes. Red Cross knitting filled the Social Room, the selling of War (then Defense) Stamps flourished, and model planes took shape in the shops. Air raid drills began, and then it was spring, Easter — and Lieut. Peterson was ordered to report for dutyl We felt distinguished and important in our war effort, and tried to say a brave goodbye.

signs of spring and the yellow forsythia, just before Lieut. Peterson left for duty with the armed forces, assisting in the removal of offensive yellow objects from the air.

FIRST AID FEATURED IN WAR EFFORT

Have you bought your defense stomp today?
That is the general query about school now that we've gone all-out for defense. And if you haven't bought a stamp today, you generally remember it after school when you pass the defense stamp booth in the main hall. With its patriotic decorations of red, white, and blue crepe paper, it is an impressive reminder.
Mr. Wayne Alvord, who is in charge of the sales, reports that PCHS students have bought over $1,300 worth of stamps during thirteen weeks, which averages about $100 per week.
Mardell Sarnes and Irma Jane Rau are
the main sellers with other helpers in the booth being chosen by Mr. Alvord. The girls have had many requests for defense bonds but only the post office is allowed to sell those. However, quite a few loyal citizens have filled their defense stamp books and traded them in for bonds. Bill Gasper has completely filled a book of 50c stamps and turned it in for a $100 bond.
The teachers have also been buying stamps in large numbers, but the largest single purchase was made by Bob Smith, who bought $50 worth.
