" vm X1U- - NO 9 - SALT LAKE CITY UTAH, FRIDAY, MAY, 19, 1944 Price Five Cento Cotton 'n' Levis Shine Through Day rHere I Are" " 81s jjflifrflftywlmv inninii iiiMllinimillB 31iss SHAG, Mr. SAM Reign Over Assemhly, Dance Cubs and cubettes came to school today attired in colorful cotton dresses, loud plaid shirts and levis in anticipation of the carefully planned all day pro-gram appropriately named Cot-ton and Levi Day. The students attended an as-sembly this morning at regular assembly time. Part of the pro-gram was the presentation of Miss Shag and Mr. Sam to the Cubs. The first period classes at South had rather juvenile appear-ing teachers, as two students, a boy and a girl, took over and directed the classes. The teachers stood by in case things "got out t of hand" for the junior adminis-trators. Their overalls and cot-ton aprons were of the latest thing, and what the well dressed teacher of South High wears on just such days. As a finale to the day's activi-ties a dance is to be held tonight at 9:00 p. m. Admission will be activity card or fifty cents. The music will be furnished by Sol Betnum and his orchestra. A drawing of prizes is to be held, the grand prize being an old car. Ten other prizes are in-cluded. Students are reminded that they are to wear the same clothes to the dance as they wore at school... Girls in levis will not be admitted. The dance is sponsored by SAM and SHAG. By showing off the cute cotton dress she wears for "Cotton 'n' Levi Day," Ingeborg Forschner tries to decoy Frank Landvatter away from his dancing partner, Ardath Lym. Ardath seems oblivions to the pleased look on Frank's face. Shows, Games, Dance, to Head Annual Free-for-A- H at Park Fairmont Scene Of Annual Frolic For Second Year Laziness-plu- s will be the favor-ite pastime for Cubs on South High Day, May 26, at 9 a. m., to be held at Fairmont Park for the second year. Formerly students have gone to Lagoon, but due to war condi-tions, the place has been changed to Fairmont Park Many activities have been out-lined to occupy Cubs' time. Among the various sports that have been arranged for will be a swimming contest in which both boys and girls will participate. Athletes will play a baseball game against the ROTC members, which ought to prove very interesting. Another event that will take place is the girls' Softball games that will be played in the afternoon. Everyone will bring a lunch. Punch will be served. After the games, students will trek off to one of the Sugarhouse theaters. At 8:30 there will be a dance in the South ball room to the music of Bob Hansen and his orchestra. Popular dress of the day for the boys will be levi's, bright-colore- d shirts and flashy socks. The girls will adorn themselves in cottons and pigtails. Shorts for the girls will not be allowed. Miss Foulger To Serve In Red Cross No longer to grace South's office with her charming ways, Bernice Foulger will soon leave to become hospital staff aid in the Ameri-can Red Cross. She will depart Thursday, May 25, for Washington, D. C, where she will receive three weeks training. From there she will go to San Francisco to await assign-ment orders. When she reaches her assigned hospital, she will help care for convalesing service men. "I may apply later for overseas duty," she said. The entire student body and the faculty wish to express to Bernice their sincere appreciation for the work she has done while at South. Her sympathetic understanding of students' problems and her friend-ly efficiency have endeared her to everyone. Good luck, good-by- e and God speed, Miss Foulger. Invincible Isabella Eludes Pursuers "Oh where, oh-wher-e has my. little snake gone?" Mr. Oleson, a biology teacher frantically cried. This charming snake was a perfect example of "what the well dressed will wear," with her fascinating blue ribbon tied ever so daintily around her fashion-able black and white scales in the latest mode. Escaping from her biology homestead, Irresistable Isabella renewed old acquaintances with the 8:00 o'clock chemistry class. Isabella is a gopher snake found on Mr. Oleson's farm. She is very obliging by devouring gophers and field mice for him. "She is absolutely harmless," Mr. Oleson said, "except to gophers and field mise." ' Isabella's parting words were "Ssssss." Education, Work Chances Outlined Opportunities for education and work were outlined by nine prom-inent Salt Lake City men in a special assembly Wednesday morn-ing. .Introduced by Assistant Super-intenda- nt Ernest M. Hansen, in charge of high schools, were Sid-ney W. Angleman, Le Roy Taylor, and John T.

Hen-derson, of the United States Rail-road Retirement Board; and L. P. Williams, of the Civil Service commission.

Mr. Backman and Miss Stephens appealed for summer workers. Mr. Henderson told of the essen-tiality of railroad workers. Mr. Williams related the needs of the Civil Service Commission for boys and girls. Girls desiring Civil Service positions either per-manently or temporarily took tests this past week to qualify as junior typists and junior stenog-- raphers.

Board of Control Rewrites Handbook In order to make the handbook more interesting and understand-able, the Board of Control is re-vising it. They hope to change it from droll facts to interesting comments in the light vein. Certain parts of the constitution have been revised with the main object of clarity in mind. Changes in the award systtem have been made to make the attining of an award a real struggle and a high-er honor. South High Day Old Tradition It's Up to JJs to Preserve It Throughout the history of South, thousands of students have helped to build and preserve the fine old tradition of South High Day. Is it fair for us, in one day, to tear down all that this day has meant, and make it impossible for stu-dents in future years to enjoy the fun of that day? That is just what we will be doing if we sluff that day to go out to the lake, a show, or some other place instead of joining in the frolic at Fairmont. Dating 'way back to the days when South was in its baby-hood, it was conceived by the Senior Sluff Day of the other schools. South, democratic as it is, decided to include every-one, not just the seniors. They started out the first time going to Lagoon, and the students had so much fun that they decided to keep going there all the time. It wasn't long before the other schools were going out there, too. Then came the war, and with it the closing of Lagoon. What to do? Abandon the Day? No! Students came up with suggestions, "Why not hold it at Fairmont park?" And so, last year for the first time since it began, South High Day was held away from Lagoon. Everyone seemed to have a good time, and now East is going out there, too. With the careful planning done by the committees in charge, it ought to be "more fun than a picnic." It will be, too, if the whole school supports it. Council Discusses Current Problems To analyze and act intelligently on the economic, social, and po-litical problems which the youth of today face and to encourage and support the principles of de-mocracy is the purpose of the Salt Lake Youth Council. The group meets twice monthly to discuss and learn of the af-fairs and problems of the com-munity in which they live. Juven-ile delinquency, wage rates, labor unions, voting age, educational system, living conditions, and so-cial and economic discrimination are some of the problems dis-cussed. The council is made up of stu-dents largely from the University of Utah, however, East and West are very well represented. So far, Helen Tate is the only member from South. Further information can be given any student inter-ested in this organization by Helen or Mrs. Badger. Assembly Presents Request Numbers Highlighting today's assembly was an Apache dance performed by Hal Hardcastle and Neal Adams, one of the request numbers on the Cotton 'n' Levi Day assembly, sponsored by SAM and SHAG. Lowell Hicks played his marim-ba. Several other request numbers such as dance numbers, song num-bers and readings were also wit-ncss- ed. Francis Urry, KSL announcer, entertained the students with readings and jokes. Royal Neilson told of his experi-ences in the Marshall Islands with the Navy. Royal's ship sunk a couple of subs. A graduate of last year, Royal was a captain in the ROTC. Skating Club Slates Last Invitational Spree The Skating club will hold its last invitational party Saturday, May 20, at 9:30 p. m. There will be one more party after this one, but it will b-- for members only. "Bring your membership cards and partners, and be there," said Audrey Confer, club president.
