They kept apologi- zing for the absence of their organ player, but his absence was barely noticeable. Their music was great, but the ob- jec~ that was the center of at. tention was the group's strobe light. It's so hard to describe the effects of this light. The best way to depict it is to think of the old movies that would flick, frame by frame, on the screen. Everyone really enjoy- ed the whole thing. The theme of this year's prom was "Up, Up and Away", with each of the four walls of the gym decorated as a dif- ferent part of the world. The decorations rendered a well- balanced effect The refreshments, as usual, STUDENT OF THE WEEK The title Student of the Week goes to a deserving senior, Annette Ansley.

Although there are few people who en- Joy school, the majority of stu- dents at F.H.S. are thinking about and counting the days off whether they are voicing their rejoices or not. There seems to be more smiles around these days than a couple of months ago. The happy faces can be con- tributed to the approaching day of exhaltation - May 29. ACCORDING TO James Reston of the New York Times, public speaking in Washington is still "a national disgrace" and the writing often notunder- standable. "If we could get young minds to see that speaking and writ- ing accurately is a pract- ical necessity of life, whether a child is going to be a doc- tor or a salesman, we might gradually get over the notion that grammar is a bore and writing an agony." MARDIE DOZIER, a Winters, California, teenager turned her interest in the outdoors into an anti-litter demonstration tit- led, "Strange Floras of Calif- ornia." She collected some ',species" of these noxious flora which were made of Man- zanita brush hung with appro- priate litter: WRAPPUS DIS- CARDS . . discard vine (wrap- pets from gum, candy, etc.,); NICO2~NUS BURNTUS . fil- ter week (cigarette packages and stubs);, PROBO~CUS WIPUS . kleenex bush (self explan- atory~ DEPOSITUS NONRETU- RNUS . . bottle brush (caps and bottles);, CANUS BENTUS . tin can tree (varied cans and dangerous zip tops.) Included in her talk was a description of each plant, where found, and why it is unsightly or dangerous. The methods of eradication of these - and an over-all summary which ended in a plea for all of us to help stamp out these noxious plantsI DURING A I3. S. Senate de- bate in 1840, over the proposed Pacific Railroad, a senator commented: "What do we want with this region of savages and wild beasts, of deserts, of shifting sands and whirl-winds of dust, of cactus and praire dogs? To what use could we ever put those endless mountain ranges, impenetrable and covered to their very bases with eter- nal snow? What could we do with the western coast three thousand miles away, rock- bound, cheerless and uninvit- ing?,, - DANIEL WEBSTER THE ART OF avoiding work is one almost as intricate and precise as that of painting or dancing. It requires a skill which may take years in the perfecting but to good avail. It is easy to spot a pro- fessional of the art. He stands out with an uncommon coolness in the face of his enemy, work, while others drop llke flies at the mere thought of the task which lies before them. He has the integrity of a lion, and the cunning of the fox. Words gush forth from the mouth, the ne- ver ending well, and sprinkle like raindrops upon the ears of the listener, such words and phrases as could cahn the rampaging rinocherous. Mter listening to the sweet hum of his voice, the listener would surely trust this person with his very life. Many such practitioners of this illustrious art may be found about F. It. S., but they are still a very small minority. We poor common students who lack this ability look on in awe as one of these students of the art persuades the teacher to for- get the assignment which he did not have. But as they say, practice makes perfect, so we less for- tunate students slave on. Until maybe one day, we, too, are capable enough to be a pro at avoiding work. MRS. NELSON'S sophomore English class is in the midst of reading the novel "Silas Mar- neff' by George Eliot. They have been listening to the selection of records on this novel and also reading aloud in class. Every member of the class has enjoyed reading it.
