Angelina Knoop .. Alice Hoffman
Minnie Knoop ............ Betty Lee
Mrs. Smythe-Porter .....

The Vernonia Loggers will at-
tempt to vanquish the league
leading Clatskanie Tigers in a
basketball game in the local gym
tonight.
Clatskanie boasts victories ov­
er the strong St. Helens Lions
and the Scappoose Indians. The
Loggers did not succeed in win­
ning the two league games played
thus far, but are determined to
defeat all high school quintets
whom they play on the local
floor.
GERALDINE GEORGE,
TOSHI KUGE HAVE
HIGHEST AVERAGES
Geraldine George and Toshi
Kuge have the best averages of
19 students who are on the honor
roll for the first semester. These
students must have attained an
average of 90% in the subjects
they carry. A grade less than 3-
plus bars them from the honor
roll.
Each student must carry at
least four subjects. A citizen­
ship grade of 1 is necessary. All
absences and tardiness must be
excused. Those students on the
semester honor roll are:
Seniors—Elmo Aldridge, 95.25,
Charleen George, 94.75, Neva
Pierce, 94.375, Marjorie Holtham.
91.75.
Juniors — Geraldine George,

92.50, Doris Lindgren, 92.375,
Elbert Brock, 91.625, Beryl Ly­
ons, 91.50.

95.50, Elmo Smith, 94.25, Beulah
Reed, 91.40,
Freshmen — La Verne Thomp­
son, 93.25, La Von George, 90.40.
Congratulations are extended
to these hard working students
who realize that their success de­
pends upon what they accomplish
while a member of some school.
It is a sincere wish that these
students and many more will for­
ever follow the path of good
work.

DIAMOND RINGS
Oh! Let me see it! Is is real?
These and various other excla­
mations are given when any girl
comes to school wearing a “dia-
mon” on her left hand. It’s cer­
tainly beginning to look serious
as there are about 10 out every
15 girls wearing “diamonds.”
Aha! I have it! So that’s why
there are boys in the sewing class
this year. Their motto, like that
of the Boy Scouts, must also be
“Be Prepared!” Well, here’s luck
to all of you.

WALKING ACROSS THE LAWN
It seems that Mr. Skuzie’s pet
ambition is to be a detective.
That’s bad. How shall we poor pu­
pils hide anything now?
Leo (Butterfly) Ludwig goes
flitting down the incline. Oh, Leo,
how graceful.
With more and more women
going into business nowadays, it
looks like the men will have to
stay at home and take care of the
housework. Anyway, some of our
enterprising young male student*
are preparing for the worst, and
have joined the sewing class. It’s
a good idea, boys. The girls wish
you luck.
Thelma Lincoln arrived EARLY
for French class the other day.
Miss Hughes reports that, though
the shock was great, she is doing
nicely, and expects to be fully
recovered soon.
Many students have been heard
regretting the early leave-taking

PERSONALS
Herbert Piert was a recent vis­
itor at Vernonia high school,
Wilma Gates from Lewiston,
Montana, visited school several
days recently.
Bert Eastman visited school
last week.
Kenneth Cliff from Portland
visited school Friday afternoon.
Ping pong is taking V.H.S. by
storm.
Several boys swiped the ping
pong paddles and balls from Miss
Hughes’ room, and then crawled
through a window in Mr. Mills’
room the other day, in order to
play ping pong. And did they
have an exciting time? Every
time they would hit the ball it
would start for the farthest cor­
ner of the room. Finally the boys
gave up in disgust and took the
set back to Miss Hughes.
The boys said that the game
was too simple and that they
would let the members of the
Girls’ league do the playing in
the future.
