SHAG Sponsors Yearly Dance For Cubbettes, . Boy i Friends I Officers Complete Plans For Saturday Frolic Dancing to beautiful music, in a romantic atmosphere of fern and palm trees will be just one of the gaities for Southern debs and their partners tomorrow night when South High Associated Girls present their annual Girls Dance. Because of the scarcity of ma-terials, decorations will be simple, but beautiful and impressive this year, Julie Spitz, SHAG pres-ident said. She added that this may be the last year for the dura-tion of the war that a dance with decorations can be held at.South. The decorations consist mostly of silhouette murals, the palm trees, and fern, and programs of black suede and silver. Goya and Gabriel, exhibition dancers, will highlight the inter-mission with their dance routine. Goya, whose real name is Elaine Richardson, is a former student and a graduate of South high. Miss Ruth Halverson will accom pany the team on the piano. During the evening, varied col-ored punches will be served. Music will be supplied by Ver-di Brienholt and his orchestra. Together with the fact that the war has put a damper on original plans, it was announced that no corsages or buttoneirs will be allowed. Tickets will be on sale at the door Saturday night for the con-veniences of those who do not pur-chase them at the bookstore. The dance, which is formal, is under the direction of Lucile Monay, dean of girls, the SHAG officers, Julie, Donna Carlson, Carole Taylor, and Jean Fumer, and the Girls Gym teachers, Miss Virginia Walker, Miss Iris Sleator, and Mrs. Violet Walker. It was estimated that 600 coup- -' les would attend. Scribe Editorial, Business Posts Filled For Coming Year Lorna Call - . . chosen as editor of Scribe for coming year. Call, Rigby Head Staff; List Helpers By Milton Hollstein Expressing their willingness to guide the Scribe through a war year of headaches, Lorna Call and LaWana Rigby were selected recently by editors and V. F. Victor, sponsor, for the positions of 1943-M- 4 editor and business manager, respectively. The new executives took the lead in publishing this junior edition of the school newspaper. Lorna is acquainted with news-paper style makeup and composi-tion through her work as a report-er on the current staff. Equally important will be her experience in staff organization and develop-ment. All-nig- ht sessions at the printers and loss of "A" grades are prospects familiar to Lorna, as she's the little sister of Justin D. Call, one of Scribe's most success-ful editors. The third girl editor in the 13-ye- ar .history of Scribe, Lorna is assisted by Berneice Nash, associ-ate editor; Buehlah Latimer, news editor; Don Lefavor, editorial as-sistant; Elaine Jarvis, feature edi-tor; Susan McCarrel, social editor; Grant Woodward, sports editor, and Don North, Ralph Merkely, Eugene Gibson, Wayne Smith, Bet-ty Gene Josephs, Charlotte Fein-stei- n as reporters. Associate editorships fall to Joan Crebs, feature, and sportsman, "Jake" Dalebout. Monopolies on Scribe positions by girls extended to the business staff, where Marie Robertshaw was placed as advertising manager. Junior staffers will gain needed experience in putting out a paper when they assist their senior in-structors in publishing the enlarg-ed graduation edition, final publi-cation this year. Workers Needed At Hill Field, Stafford Says "If you can't fly 'em, you can fix 'em" was part of a message Captain Robert 0. Stafford gave to South high seniors last Wednesday when he, Private Claude Breeze, and Fred Schwendiman, of the civ-il service told of Hill Field's ur-gent need for workers. "It's the civilian workers who ac-tually run the field, and we've got to get more of them," he said. Hill Field's main business is to repair airplanes, and they said that they were in urgent need of mec-anic- s, technical workers, drafts-men, clerks and stenographers. In order to become mechanics, graduating seniors would first be given civil service examinations, and then if found eligible, they would be sent to school either at the A. C. at Logan, Weber college in Ogden, or at Hill Field. In school they would learn some special branch of repair, such as airplane repair, instrument repair, and ma-chine or wood working shops. Pay during the training is $120 a month. After three months of training they will be ti'ansferred to the department they specialize in. All girls over 16, and all boys over 16 and under 17 are eligible. Miss Winifred Dyer, assistant principal of South, enumerated the advantages of working at Hill Field as compared to working at a ten cent store. She pointed out that besides earning more money girls would be helping their country more repairing airplane instru-ments rather than selling flowers, or knick-nack- s to wear on one's lapel. ROTC Polishes For Spring Review, Quiz All cadets are polishing up their knowledge as well as their but-tons, for the annual inspection of South's ROTC is held on May 5, according to Sgt. Paul D. Red-mond, commandant. Cadets are drilling and study-ing intensively, the honor rating being their goal. They are work-ing to equal South's usual good appearance for the coming inspec-tion. Ten first and ten second year cadets will be chosen at random from each company for oral ex-amination. A squad will be pick-ed from one of the platoons to demonstrate extended order drills, with the leader of that squad tak-ing command. After stacking arms, the battalion will form for mass calisthenics. These are just a few of the activities in which the cadets will participate. The honor rating hinges on the outcome of this inspection, which, is, of course, their goal. The ROTC is striving to win this rat-ing for the fifth year in succes-sion, and Sgt. Redmond thinks they have a good chance of do-ing this. So now, more than ever, it is "strictly business" in the ROTC periods. Students who watch this review are asked to stay off the grass so as to let the cadets maneuver at their best. Futher particulars as to the time of the inspection will be re-leased Monday or Tuesday. Week -- Long Stamp Drive Sees South "Over the Top" South's one week war bond and stamp drive concluded with the result of $28,384.30 worth of fight stacked against the Axis. Not stopping at the original quota of $10,000, the students exploded over the top, reaching the final total recorded above. A special assembly on April 15 announced to the school plans for this gigantic bond drive to commemorate the famous ride of Paul Revere, and incidentally, Hit-ler's birthday. This was spon-sored by the Board of Control. Members from the' armed ser-vice were on the assembly and urged the students to buy until it hurts the Axis. Larry Hanks, former South president and now a member of the navy, stated that he thought from his past experiences that South could and would do it. Other outstanding features were a former Ogden High school alumnus, who sang and told of his thrilling escape from the Japs. A WAAC, also a South alum, gave reasons for investing our money in war bonds. Milton Holl-stein- 's speech at the end plead with the students to fill the quota for the boys out on the front. Dexter McGarry conducted a talent assembly April 22, auction-ing each act for pledges in war bonds and stamps. The student body and faculty raised $4,500 in an hour and a half. With Julie Spitz representing the girls' point of view concern-ing the war bond campaign, Kirk Brimley representing the Board of Control, Ernest Poulson repre-senting the ROTC, Darrel Long . representing the athletes, and Mil-ton Hollstein, who acted as chair-man of the committee, a rebroad-cas- t of the program was presented originally in the music room was given over KDYL April 24 at 2 p. m. Prexy Selection Slate Listed Nominations for next year's president are to be completed by the first of May, in accordance with the school constitution, ac-cording to Don Giacomo, student body first president. No decisions as to the method of nominating has been reached, but it will be announced shortly, said Miss Dyer. From the list of nominees, all but five will be eliminated. These five are to be placed on the primary ballot. Campaigning for the five pros-pective presidents will begin as soon as school opens next year. As set forth in the student handbook, all candidates must comply with eligibility rules as specified by the board of educa-tion. Briefly, they must be for-mally enrolled, in regular attend-ance, in good standing, and pass-ing in at least three units of pre-pared subjects. Further partic-ulars concerning eligibility for office can be found in the hand-book, pages 15-1- 8. . Orchestra Plans Classical Concert At South Tuesday All music lovers are invited to attend the annual orchestra con-cert to be held May 6 at 8:15 p. m. in the music room. Ar-mo- nt J. Willardson, conductor, es-timated that it would last an hour. The program consists of music of the masters and is to be given in the music room. Mr. Willard-son said that they could show off to a better advantage there, be-cause the orchestra is only 37 instruments. "The immensity of the auditorium, in order to really en-joy the music performed in it, must have an orchestra of at least a hundred," he said. He also added that it would be the first time for a concert to be held in that room. The schedule program is as fol-lows: "Egmont Overture," by Beethoven; "Unfinished Symphony" by Schubert; "Fugue in G Mi-nor," by Bach; "On the Trail," from Grofe's "Grand Canyon Suite"; "Die Fledermaus," by Strauss; "Minuetto," and "Far-andol- e' from "L'Arlesienne Suite, Number Two," by Bizet. A couple of numbers by a string ensemble are rumored. Doris Warner is to sing some solos. The band played at Irving high school April 28 in an essembly similar to the one given at Lin-coln high school several weeks ago. Graduation Dates Listed By Principal Commencement exercises are to be held June 3, De Voe Woolf announced recently. The annual Award Dinner Dance, which is graduating students who have earned twenty points or more in various fields of activity, is scheduled for June 1, he said. As announced before by Miss Lucille Monay, dresses must be in pastel colors, and of cotton materials, such as net, organdy, cotton-rayo- n, dotted swiss, or pique, and must have sleeves. Some grads-to-b- e are brushing up on the Alma Mater hymn al-ready, and are preparing early so as to be in readiness for the final marching around the stage to receive the hard-worked-f- or diplomas. Cubs Take Over City Posts Relieving the city commission-ers for a day last Wednesday were nine senior students from the city high schools, three boys representing South. The boys from South who were chosen because of their scholastic records and their ability as lead-ers were Milton Hollstein, Law-rence Johnson and iChick Woolf, all members of the Board of Con-trol. Milton supervised streets for the day, Lawrence replaced Reed E. Vetterli as chief of police, and Chick acted as commissioner of parks while Fred Tedesco watched. The nine students, only one of whom was a girl, were taken to lunch by the regular city com-missioners. Although the students really gave a few "youthful" ideas for improvement, they were amazed at the detail it took to run the ciy smoothly, regular officers ad-mitted. This program is followed each year in the city's official salute to youth in the annual "Boys' and Girls' week", which ends tomor-row It is intended to acquaint the students with the government of which they will soon be a part.
