Dance Will Set Tempo For First Semester Drive, Advisory Contest Noting a considerable lag in stamp and bond sales, a commit-tee was organized and approved by the House of Delegates and now has blossomed forth with rules de-- , signed to fboost the 10 percent idea with inducements for a "big-ger than ever" drive. Headed by Roy Marsh, the com-mittee laid down the drives' pur-pose, "to make every Southerner a 10 percenter;" made rules, and planned a dance to give the start added impetus. The dance is slated for Friday and will combine with a football theme celebrating the opening of league play. Marsh announced that admittance would be the regular 25 cent fee plus a 25 cent war stamp purchased by every person entering. Others on the stamp commit--1 tee, Bob Barker, Dave McLelland, Chal Goss, Kathleen Oldham. Lois Wilkes, and Lillian Larsen stipu-late the following rules for the advisory group contest: 1. Every student in the home room must be putting ten per cent of all earnings into bonds or stamps either at work or In the school contest. 2. All those buying more than $50 in stamps will be placed in a separate class, their savings to count 5 per cent to the room's total. These students will contest among themselves. 3. EaclTroonf Ts to be" informed of 'the progress of other home rooms in the drive. 4. Bonds and stamps bought with money from parents will be count-ed toward the school's drive but not credited to the home room's total. 5. There are to be two contests, one to continue until the end of the present semester, the other to begin at the start of the second semester and continue until June. 6. Presidents will go to the book AtMetic Insurance Plan Pencils Board Action Didn't Know Parents Were Interested' Lowder, Gillmor Told Plan Provides Part Payment For Medical Bills The fate of athletic insurance to cover injuries of city high school team members today is pending action of the school board following a unanimous declaration by South high school athletes that the insur-ance is badly needed in the "Big 3." The insurance plan is now in op-eration in all other state schools, having been accepted by the state board of education. Long stifled by school board at-torneys because "the plan was not worded correctly and doesn't cover the board sufficiently," the mur-mur, which grew to a shout, was raised by the boys who take the risks and by their parents who have to foot the bills: Mr. Oscar E. Lowder, father of prexy Dee Lowder, and Mrs. Ste-phen T. Gillmor, P--T A president, are following through with Ernest M. Hanson, assistant superintend-ent of the schools, the following plan: 1. Athletes shall pay a pre-scribed abount (generally $1.60 to $2) which is supplemented by funds from the school or school board. 2. In the event of injury to a team member the medical bill will be paid, up to a reasonable amount, from the fund, thus relieving con-siderably the financial weight on parents. 3. The amount each receives de-pends upon the injury. Prior to the time the question was reopened, the attorneys had shelved the plan and Mr. Hanson had long since allowed the subject to bother him, although he admits he first introduced the plan to the city. The board imnjocently pleaded, "we didn't know parents were even interested." Clair Empey, senior class secre-tary and a member of the "A" team, expects momentarily a reply from his former principal in Pro-v- o answering a query as to the ex-act articles in the plan. In order to be in practice before Thursday's game, the plan is now being hastened through with the full backing of South high school.

Ghosticized Piano Gets Dee in Dutch With WPB Dee Lowder now is a fugitive, from the W P B for telling an ex-perience which sent half the school on a wild goose chase to see some old dump which supposedly housed a piano which would beat out a wicked boogy-woog- y or a pied-u- p version of Old Black Joe. It all started when Dee, Russ Graehl and Clair Empey, Tuesday night scanned a broken down joint at the mouth of Mill Creek canyon in hopes of obtaining a baby grand for Dugway. But they beat a hasty retreat back to town with a story of how the piano played itself and how a buggy moved without means of motivation, not bothering to ex-plain how they caught the hoax-ers, "A" team men, in the act of playing the piano by means of fish-lin- e and hook. Wednesday a caravan of cars from school trecked to the spot hopin' to see the "Ghosticized" pi-ano, which had by then been re-moved by its owner, Dr. B. F. Rob-bin- s, who put it safely away from the young-- scalywags. Now Dugway is minus this baby grand, Dr. Robbins not wishing to sell the well-preserv- ed instrument. Ho hum! all in a day's work, ain't it, Dee? South, City Schools Observe Fire Drills City schools had several drills last week in conformance with regulations set aside for Fire Prevention week, October 4-1- 1. These alarms have come in the form of three short rings which have sent Southerners from the building in an orderly manner. Only through some unforseen ev-ent can Southerners realize the value of these apparently worth-less drills, according to Fire Chief LaVere M. Hanson. B of C Edict Limits Sales of 'Burgers Hungry stoogents once bemoan-ed the fate of King Hamburger, who throughout the last year, has steadily lost most of his famous girth. Now, to make their misery complete, South's own gestapo, temporarily, at least, put the ban on eatin' between lunches and may even cry "them days is gone fer-ever- ." It all started when the line of students waiting in the cafeteria kitchen became so long that the office sent in an order for more yellow tardy slips. Then the R 0 T C decided that although mustard went well with khaki, the acquiring of it lost time and therefore tht cadets should do without. Gym teachers worried over the health of their students, deciding that work has taken so many they dare not lost more of the misses. It all added up to an edict from the board of control which limited ye olde hamburger to its stay in the three lunches. Staff Quiets Propaganda ; Calls Halt to Sales Lawrence Johnson, editor of the Southerner, announced that picture coupon sales positively ceased Fri-day, and reported that more than 1,350 had been sold last Tuesday. It is expected that over 1,500 will have been sold by the time school closes tonight, which is more than have ever been purchased for the yearbook. SHAG Bills Events Plunging into activities which will commence with a friendship tea this month, SHAG officers who were elected September 26 have taken over and are billing their year's events. Julia Spitz, president, was for-merly associate editor of Scribe. She is being assisted by Donna Carlson, first vice president; Car-ole Taylor, second vice president, and Jean Furner, secretary. An Intervieiv With the Chief Vetterli Cites Growing Student Delinquency Count BY EDNA PRICE "When an organization of police departments around the country put up sums of money to build up crime prevention programs, then, and only then, can we cope with crime." This was the oninion expressed by Reed E. Vetterli, chief of Salt Lake City's police force and can-didate for the office of Represen-tative of Utah, in an interview with Scribe regarding thee problem of juvenile delinquencies. The number of juvenile delin-quencies has sky-rocket- ed with the coming of war, according to Chief Vetterli. He said a fifteen per cent increase in Salt Lake is due mainly to the fact that mothers are now working and leaving youngsters to shift for themselves and to the reckless attitude war brings to children as well as adults. When asked how the police force has been dealing with the situa-tion, Chief Vetterli replied, "Ap-proximately two years ago we started a crime prevention unit dealing with juvenile delinquencies. We formed an under privileged boys' club." Now regular nights are set aside each week for boys who wish to come to the policemen's gymnas-ium. Members of the force stay there to instruct them in boxing, swimming, and a number of other sports. Chief Vetterli explained that the cases involving juvenile delin-quents do not rest with the police force but are turned over to the juvenile authorities. Inasmuch as the officials are more interested in saving the youngsters from becom-ing future criminals than in pun-ishing them for whatever crimes they have committeed, they are taken into custody rather than be-ing arrested. Recently there has been an un-accountable shifting of the major-ity of juvenile delinquencies from the west side of the city to the east side. The record of South high school's district remains fairly clean. Chief Vetterli stressed the value of getting to the cause of crime and thereby preventing it. The money used for such a purpose would pay high dividends in the future by keeping today's juven-ile delinquents from becoming to-morrow's seasoned criminals.

Williams, South's most handsome teacher, (ask the girls) has been tutoring 120 soldiers in the arts of typewriting and mil-itary correspondence six nights a week for the past four weeks in the building. The course, which concluded Fri-day, has been for the purpose of teaching these soldiers from the Army Air base to be efficient tele-type operators. The soldiers spend three and a half hours a night, six nights a week taking this schooling in silent military style. This is in addition to their other activities. Several of the brighter students of this class have already graduat-ed and are now serving the gov-ernment as teletype operators and stenographers.
