Tim Thompson
'The Freshman Blues'
Tim Thompson, 1964 AHS
graduate, was featured in the
January 8 issue of LIFE maga
zine. The magazine is currently
running a series of articles on
the terrific academic and social
pressure encountered by the stu
dent, teacher, and president of
an Ivy League college.
After receiving a scholarship to
Yale, Tim was chosen for the
story as a result of an interview
with a LIFE reporter last
The main objective of the
feature story is to show the
tremendous competition endured
by the students at a modern uni-

She is 5'5i" and wears size 5

Ore. on Oct. 3. Some of his favor
ites are modern problems, golf,
chicken and noodles, and the
color green. The mystery boy's
pet peeve is people saying oh.
vcrsity. Since Sputnik in 1953
there has been both an increased
quantity and quality of high
school students applying for ad
mission to the "prestige colleges."
Yale is one of these colleges.
Wanting to reduce the number of
students and to see if the college
prospect can keep his head above
the academic flood waters, col
leges dump extra work on the
new freshmen to eliminate those
who can't swim. The others float
back to "nice, safe" home town
colleges. According to its presi
dent, Yale is "a competitive place.
but it's a competition which re
wards all its participants."
A methodical day for Tim
starts at 6 a.m. and ends at mid
night. Along with classes, studies,
and a part-time scholarship job,
Tim washes his own clothes and
irons his own shirts. Tim, who
lettered in baseball and basket
ball, finds no time for even in
tramural sports due to his de
manding schedule.
"Streaks of Western individ
ualism," according to the article,
"are standing Tim in good stead."
The picture essay went on to
point out that Tim has gone

I couldn't help noticing the
students of AIIS on their way to
the pep assembly last Friday.
The mass exodus of students rush
ing from their classes makes
Macy's on sale day look like a
kindergarten recess!
Fearing to brave the crowd
when the bell rang, I dashed for
the corner by the clock to "wait
out the storm." But my corner
was not my own for long. Twenty-
three other cowardly students
had the same idea and the same
corner in mind. I was forced to
move on.
In the process of finding an
other island of calm in this
treacherous sea of peaple, I was

One poor soul who evidently
couldn't keep up with the pace
was slowly being ground into the
linoleum. I learned later that she
wasn't the only fatality. One boy
was trampled to death at the foot
of the stairs when he stooped
to pick up a book. Another girl
suffocated when she was trapped
in her locker by someone slam
ming the door as he rushed by.

Your Interest
Recently I saw a copy of the Rogue News on a
lunch table. It was cut up and mutilated. I realize
this is only one paper and one incident, but it made
me wonder just what happens to the copies of our
paper after they are handed out to the classes.
What was the life of this beaten, mistreated
paper? Was it just stuck in a notebook and thrown
into a locker until after the vacation and then
brought out for an undeserving assassination?
Do you read your copy of the newspaper? Our
staff tries to put out a paper that is interesting and
full of news that is of concern to the Ashland High
School student body. We are often told of things that
are not done right, of things that are dull, but we
are rarely told when something is liked.
If you read something that you like and would
like to see more of, tell one of the staff members.
We would appreciate knowing what you students
would like to read. And remember that you don't
have to be on the newspaper staff to write for the
newspaper. This is your paper, and we want you to
be interested in it! K. B.

The article goes on to state
further that Tim will undoubted
ly make good at Yale because he
has what it takes to win out in
the competition spirit.
Ain't It True?

On Wednesday evening, Jan.
20, 19i5, many lamps were turned
on in bedrooms and studies all
over Ashland. These lights burn

evening, the late evening, and on
into the night. What was this
special occasion? im sure you
all know. es, that's right, exam
eve. But why all this last minute
cramming? Well, let's interview
a suspect and get some facts.
A typical teenager, we'll call
him Faultless Walt, was asked
this fatal question, "Why didn't
you study before this?" And the
answer was, "I had too many
other things to do." Then we
made the mistake of asking this,
The Grizzettes recently got
new outfits. These are red cor

blouses. The girls were in charge
of making their own uniforms.
Their complete outfits are as
follows: Red skirt and blouse,
red tennis shoes, white gloves
and white tam.
Plans for the future are:

the Lettermen.

Things settled down fairly well
after the students were seated in
the gymnasium where the as
sembly was being held.
I spoke with the custodians
who must clean the halls after
such processionals. They reported
having found, amongst the tons
of debris in the halls, three pairs

There have been several sug
estions made for remedying this
situation. One was to install traf
fic lights; however, I am afraid
the intersections created by them
would 'be murder! Another was
to let students out class-by-class,
but this would cut down on both
class and assembly time

"And my weekend nights?
Hmm, they are pre-planned by
my, ah, agent" (his steady who,
incidentally, was cramming that
night, too).
You see, things come together
in the end, and there is only one
conclusion that can be evaluated
from this information. This con
clusion is "You're only a teenager

Because of student disagree
