What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

New Reading Program Besides its other and more conventional programs, the Eng ­ lish Department is presenting a new control program to juniors this year in their individual Eng ­ lish classes. The purposes of this type of reading program include increas ­ ing knowledge, enjoyment and understanding in American lit ­ erature, and helping students to correlate similarities and differ ­ ences found in the goals and ideas of outside countries com ­ pared to those of America in the same period of time. Every Junior student is as signed to read the following lxioks, all written by American authors, except the British novel, “ Lord of the Flies ” , “ The S<*arlet Tetter ” , “ The Crucible (the only play) ’ , “ Ethan Frome” , “ The Red Badge of Courage ” and “ The Great Gatsby. ’ Each individual student, on his own time, is re ­ quired. in addition, to read a total of 12 books written by botli American and world wide authors. The English Departmen t has worked out an exchange program where only two hooks are pur ­ chased by each student. Some students buy all six hooks for their own personal use, using them to prepare for quizzes, tests and character sketches. Students unable to purchase the two required hooks can ob ­ tain them from outside resources, including the library and their English classes. (V&akhp Band Prepares For Concerts The Hellgate band is busy pre ­ paring for the upcoming concert season. “ The band ’ s first en ­ gagement will be Feb. 21 with the grade school, Sentinel, and University hands, ” stated Mr. Charles Johnson, Hellgate band director. When asked about a dance band, Mr. Johnson said that Hellgate and Sentinel have one joint dance hand. The schools' don't have separate bands be ­ cause there are not enough dance hand instruments and players to form a new hand.

Rumors had circulated that the Hellgate Knights were up against staggering odds in tac ­ kling the outstanding Sentinel Spartans. Rut determination and strong hacking by both schools created much interest for the final play off. The usually more subdued adult spectators were, that night, replaced in large part by viva ­ cious high school fans glowing with school spirit. This pride in the two schools was displayed by the bright purple and gold, and scarlet and gold uniforms and shakers which added blotches of deep color to the bursting sta ­ dium. As the competing teams were warming up. Sentinel and Hell ­ gate cheerleaders guided the in ­ spired onlookers in exuberant cheers to boost the team ’ s morale.

Forssen financial advisor. ing chants that become a dull roar, the sheer intensity and over flow ing enthusiasm kept the cheers alive — shrill, with un ­ checked excitement Hellgate ’ s lead in the begin ­ ning minutes of the game brought near hysterical bliss for Knight fans with instantane ­ ous shrieks of joy that pierced the already tingling atmosphere. There was an earnest rivalry while players were on the floor but during half time students from the local schools intermin ­ gled and a friendly, sociable at ­ titude replaced the competitive segragation of moments before. The Hellgate band ’ s stimulat ­ ing, forceful tones conflicted with a few instruments from the South Avenue band of Sentinel, thus adding even more clamor and character to the scene. Hell ­ gate twirlers provided an added attraction during the half-time Intermission with silver batons spinning and glittering. Though the Knights had fallen far behind by the third quarter, (Continued on Page 4) If all the cars in America were placed end to end on one long hill, some fool would try to pass them. — a — Think twice before you speak — especially if you intend to say what you think. a — Youth ends and manhood be ­ gins when you stop studying your face in the mirror to find an excuse to shave and when you start studying your face in the mirror to see if you can possibly put it. off until tomorrow. - a — Psay did you ever see anything pso funny ns the English lan ­ guage?

You Want Welding? Hellgate Has It HELLGATE JUNIOR VARSITY cheerleaders elect are (left to right), Barbara Yonce, Cathy Stockner, Merry Burke and Bonnie McDonald. (Staff photo). By LINDA BAILEY Reading, ’ riting and ’ rithmetlc are what grandma was offered when she went to school a few years ago. Today, students of Hellgate can choose from 40 dif ­ ferent subjects ranging from welding to college preparatory math. An average student goes to high school four years and takes five subjects a year. There are 10 required courses, leaving 10 decisions of “ what to take ” up to you. Some students aren ’ t aware of the variety of courses which can he taken at this school. An un ­ informed sophomore may find himself in a biology class detest ­ ing frogs and worms when he could have taken general science or earth science his freshman year and avoided the effects of formaldehyde. There are 10 different business courses offered to juniors and seniors. One of these is dis ­ tributive education, which en ­ ables students to get Jobs and practice what they ’ ve learned, outside of the class room. Segragation of the sexes is a statute law of the annex classes. Females are excluded from woodcraft, welding and metal- craft classes, although once in a while a pony tail shows up in the drafting class. Fair is fair — crew cuts aren ’ t allowed in home economics these days either. Speech and drama are two courses filhxi with fun and learn- ing. Bus trips to different towns around the state provide great entertainment for speech stu ­ dents. If you like the stage, drama class is where you should be your junior and senior years. There are still more areas which haven ’ t been covered here which your advisor will tell you about if you only ask. Find out about them and take courses that you will enjoy as well as learn from.
