came a commercial by Lee

Rumors have been buzzing
around AHS to the effect that
the reason Diane Lohman was
expelled is because of her poor
grades. Mrs. Taylor, however,
today discredited that idea
with the statement that, al
though Diane's poor grades
were considered, it was Di

manner that brought about
(beauty of the junior class).
Marilyn Monroe (Susan Wel-
ler) sang "Heat Wave," but
before she sang, Lee Seitz gave
commercial on Drippy Pea
nut Butter.
For the closing number, Bill
Haley and his comets played
"Boogie Wocgie," with all the
cats j urn pin' around.
In this small space an attempt will be made to
point out the vocational value of extra-curricular
activities. Even though we all know that the basic Pie"f h.ey weight), Jcr-

education and further learning, to supplement these
subjects we round out our education by extra-curricular
work. By extra- curricular is meant that part of
school which includes activities outside of regular
school hours.
We have come to realize that the object of a
school must be more than teaching; it must be the
building up of the whole intellectual, esthetic, physi
cal and vocational life, and the building of citizens
who are prepared to meet life's problems. Much can
be accomplished through the wise use of extra-curricular
work. This is the reason why we encourage
all students to take part in some activity. Some stud
ents go through four years of school and never join
a club or take part in school activities. These stud
ents are missing much more than they think. Often
times the student who does not participate in activ
ities is not happy in school and everybody is wrong
and out of step but him. This is not true in every case
because many students have to work and don't have
time to take part. But, in every school there is al
ways a large percentage of students who waste a lot
of valuable time.
Educational values of extra-curricular activities
are many. A few of the most important are training
for citizenship, training for proper use of leisure
time, training for leadership, and training for voca
There is sufficient testimony from high school
students, college students, and businessmen to af
firm the fact that many of the most valuable voca
tional lessons of life are learned through participa
tion in these activities. Many prominent businessmen
obtained the idea of becoming businessmen through
management of the finances of club funds, school
annual and other activities.
Many newspapermen have received their inspi
ration, as well as their start in this field, through
having edited a school paper. Other students have
become physical education directors, coaches, sport
ing goods salesmen and manufacturers, as a result of
their participation in sports. Others have taken up
careers in the fields of music as a. result of the start
they received in glee club, chorus or band. Boys have
become ministers and politicians because they dis
covered abilities in public speaking through high
school debate, oratory and dramatics.
It is the experience of educators that young men
and women who are active in the extra - curricular
activities of the school are unquestionably the most
desirable and usable when they are placed in posi
We encourage all students to take an active
interest in the school activities, don't be an "extra

Jack Eberhart's absence
from the Medford-Ashland
games was bemoaned by all
AHS rooters. He was not al
lowed to participate in the
games after Mr. Iba found him
in the main hall smoking cig

rys. Mr. Iba, when asked about
the incident, snarled, "It was
n't his drinking that got me, or
even the smokine-but. my
goodness, those cigars were a
gift me!"
At last a teacher recognizes
the struggles of a poor over
worked student. Mr. Lewis, at
the last faculty meeting,
brought up the idea that AHS
students were having to do al
together too much homework.
Quoth he: "The poor little tyk
es have enough to do with
their dances, parties, dates and
clubs. From now on, they will
have no more homework from
my classes." Bravo, Mr. Lewis!
That was bravely spoken. At

Al Conference
"Defining and Building a
Successful Marriage" was the
theme of the Young Adult
Conference held March 9 at
SOC. The conference began
with registration and refresh
ments at about 8:45, followed
by a general assembly. At the
general assembly. Dr. Judson
Landis, author of many books
dealing with family life, was
introduced and spoke on the
importance of dating and the
objectives to be gained
through dating.
Discussion groups then met
in the various rooms of the li
brary to discuss dating, mar
riage, and family problems.
The young people participat
ing had a chance, during this
discussion period, to bring up
their particular problems.
Lunch at the Elks Club was
next on the agenda and for the
latter part of the lunch hours,
Dr. Landis answered questions
which were asked him.
After returning to Churchill
Hall, 3 movies were shown.
One of the movies, "Are You
Ready For Marriage? , show

There will be no graduation
this year. The faculty feels
that, since everyone knows
who is going to qualify for
graduation, that there is no
need in going through with it.
It is too much work for the
teachers and students, too ex
pensive for parents, and be
sides that, some of the seniors
have real odd middle names.
Since our spring vacation
will extend into summer, this
is the last time I'll write this
column. It's been fun, and
thank you, all 3 of my readers.
Study hard in school next year,
that is if the school stays open.
There is talk of discontinuing
schools in Ashland, since ev
eryone is already smart
enough. Well, Olive Oil, and
