Pupils Discuss Report Cards Due to a new condition instig-ated by the Board of Education (to the Bored of Education), report cards will circulate four times a year instead of the previous eight times. Ah alack and alas! With such plotting and scheming what can be expected but two view-points. Lotta Brains says "Really now, I think iwe certainly must have more report card periods. Mother is so proud of me when I bring my report card home simply covered with "A's" Really she is!" M. T. Noodle refutes this state-ment with "Me? Whadda I tink.. I ain't fussy. Why even study at's all I says. The more you study, the more you know; the more you know, the more you forget; the more you forget, the less you know so, why study?" Of course this all goes to show that if one person has one idea, and another person has a different idea about the same thing, they don't agree do they? Oh well if they each have an idea, that makes two ideas ;and two ideas makes variety, and variety is the spice of life. R.O.T.C. Officers Elect Lt. Colonel Lt. George Wilde was elected president at a recent meeting of the Spots and Diamonds club. Cap-tain Mickey Gallacher, vice-preside- nt, and Captain Donald John-son, secretary, will assist him.
