Price Five Cents it.f i SMITH VICTOR IN ELECTION FOR PRESIDENT Schwendiman Defeated in Finals Losing Candidate Becomes Second Vice President Casting a slight shadow over the anticipated Lewis - Nova Cham-pionship fight, a contest with just as much anticipation, just as much keen competition, and just as much suspense for those involved, came to a close at 10:30 today. An the office clock nibbled at eternity this morning, ballots were cast and counted favoring Stanley Smith as the 1941-4- 2 South high school president. A photo-finis- h was required in the close-ru- n race between Stan and Mark Schwendiman, who will automatically become second vice president. Conforming to the rule that as time flies, the world moves faster, elections came a week earlier this year. Primaries were held last Thursday eliminating Lois Noor-d- a, Paul Ryan, and Stanley Jones. In previous years, Stan has been secretary of the Spanish Club, a member of the Sports and Dia-monds, a ski fan, a Captain in the R. 0. T. C, and House of Dele-gates representative. i This year he will be an officer on the Instructor Staff and an ac-tive member in speech and debate s ' tournaments. j' Junior and senior class presi- - dents, first vice president, SAM and SHAG officers, secretary and historian of the school- - are yet to be chosen. The elections for these offices will be completed by Octo-ber 6. An advocate of school democ-racy, Stan has this to say about his election: "I surely feel thrilled about it. Especially being presi-dent of South." ) Versatile virile victors visualize various ventures in view. Vice President Mark Schwendiman versus Stanley Smith, victori-ous in vote verdict, verify vigorous visions of victory voices vary but venture to verify version of V for Victory. Vague and verbless but vociferous. Change in Grade of Paper Advantageous In previous years the Scribe has been printed on a more ex-pensive grade of paper at the average of once a month. With this new change it will give the literary students of the school more writing opportu-nity and at the same time sup-ply the students of South with more news and more issues each year. From this issue forth you can expect to receive your issue of Scribe every two weeks for the coming year. Alumni Given Scholarships To University Among the graduates of South high school were several students ' who had been awarded scholar ships to the various colleges and . universities in the state. Adele Smith was awarded a scholarship t " to the Utah State Agricultural C College in Logan, Utah; Charles I Brubaker received paid tuition for one year's training at the Stan- - 1 ford university, and Tom Apostle I is now filling his scholarship at 1 the University of Utah. 1 Vaughn Bates, graduate and I former student of South, received I one of the four-yea- r scholarships offered to the three most capable 1 sons of Utah Power and Light I Company employees. I Other organizations sponsoring I such scholarship awards are the 1 Tribune and Telegram newspa- - I pers. Joe Newton is a proud re- - 1 r cipient of a scholarship presented by them, entitling him to a yearns training and schooling at the Um- - , versity of Utah. Henry Bunal, Barbara Adamson I and Bob Crowton also received i scholarships in different fields to I such institutions of learning in the I state, as the Agricultural College I in Logan, and the University of 1 Utah. Cartoonist Will Be Guest Artist in School Assembly An opportunity to see and hear the man who expresses his opinion in satirical cartoons every morning in the Salt Lake Tri-bune .will be presented- - to students at.. South high . school - in the form of an assembly on October 9. Nearly 10,000,000 people in the United States are acquainted with Reg Manning, and his adroit pen is winning him new acclaim each day. Without question this colorful westerner ranks among the top three editorial cartoonists of 1941. Manning has achieved his sensa-tional fame through ability to pre-sent clear cut viewpoints on the fast moving march of national and world events. He is in a class all by himself and is developing ideas at the drawing board so the fin-ished product is effective, timely, and carries the human touch. Regarding his appearance be-fore Salt Lake City high school audiences Mr. Manning says, "My chalk talks are absolutely unedu-cationa- l! I draw pictures rapidly in color, depicting outstanding fig-ures in the world news. In other words, I try to entertain students, not educate or propagandize them." Manning's approach seems to work, too, for each year in the southwestern states he appears be-fore scores of school groups, where the young men and women sit en-thralled as the cowboy bedecked artist creates his pictures. Manning will appear at South high through the courtesy of the Salt Lake Tribune. NewMembers Join Faculty AtSouthHigh Heralded with arrival of the 1941-'4- 2 school year, were nine new faculty members, who have studied and taught in a variety of schools throughout the West. Miss Barbara Beisinger, girls' physical education instructor, grad-uated from Roosevelt junior and East high schools, and the Unive-rsity of Utah. . She was an instruc-tor at both Irving and Roosevelt junior high schools last year. Miss Edith Goates, assistant li-brarian, attended Lehi high school and graduated from the Unive-rsity of Utah. She was formerly employed as a teacher at Wasatch grade school. Teaching for the first time and "enjoying it very much" is Miss Isabelle Gagian, who will direct speech activities. She has grad-uated from Murray high school and the University of Utah. Also included in this category is Miss Mary Jane Hair, graduate of We-ber Junior College and the Un-iversity of Utah, where she was a staff member of the Chronicle, student newspaper. Miss Ruth Harding, teacher of Type and Shorthand, graduated from East high school and Un-iversity of Utah. Taking over the position of de-bate coach is Miss Myrtle Harvey, who not only attended the Unive-rsity of Utah, but also the Unive-rsity of Wisconsin. Mr. Ferrin Mangelson, chemi-stry instructor, has studied at the University of Seattle and taught at Joab and Nephi high schools. Before accepting the position of band and orchestra director, Mr. Armont Willardson taught atEph-rai- m and Horace Mann high schools. Previous to teaching, he attended Snow Junior College, University of Utah, and North-western University. Mr. Douglas Williams, new type instructor, was employed at Lin-coln junior high school after grad-uating from the University of Utah. Advisors of Annual i Publication Selected i t Faculty advisors of the 1941-4- 2 ! Southerner had been announced today by Principal De Voe Woolfe. They are Julian M. Cummings, Anor Whipple, Eddie Barr, Doug las Williams, and Miss Garnet Pearson. Plans for selection of the Southerner staff members are f now being considered. Mr. Cummings, last year's fac-ulty advisor, proposed that the list of applicants be reduced to twelve. I These twelve will work on South erner assignments. The person showing the best ability and keen-est interest will be appointed edi-tor and so on through the remain-ing positions. Cadets Will Continue Wearing of Insignia Members of the South high school Battalion of Cadets will continue to display a red star on the right sleeve of their uniform which sig-nifies the awarding of the third consecutive honor rating to the school. Other Utah schools to capture the coveted award were West high school, East high school, and Lo-gan high school. South now has the largest bat-talion in school history. Meetings are being conducted for seniors daily and leadership is taught to those members who aspire toward commissions. Thirty-- two cadets will be selected as officers of the battalion. The class is conducted by Lieutenant Colo-nel George Wilde and Major Frank Harrow. From West high school comes the announcement of the retire-ment of their commandant, Ser-geant Arthur G. Hurley, in Febru-ary. Sergeant Hurley has been commandant at West since 1934. He will leave' on furlough October 30. Band Plans Initial Concert South high school is willingly doing its part in National Defense. At the request of Colonel Swift, the R. 0. T. C. band, directed by Mr. Armont Willardson, accepted I an invitation to play for the re- - I ception center parade at Fort Douglas on September 29. Among the honored guests will be Gover- - nor Herbert B. Maw. V. The band will march and play various patriotic marches includ-ing "The Star Spangled Banner." Although the part that South's band plays in these patriotic man-euv- ers is small it proves that Am-erican youth can aid in some smalt way the defense of their country when the need arises. Office Assistants Introduced New office assistants are Miss Betty Brinton, who graduat-ed from West high school last year, and Miss Kathryn Druke, who graduated from Irving junior high school, East high school, and j the University of Utah. She was secretary at Whittier school. 'a. - - I , NOTICE Song sheets, containing music and words of "On South High" are on sale in the book store. Secret Adventures of an Abstract Astronomer Finally Disclosed in Revealing Anecdote Everyone has seen a star in his life. But as a person stands and rudely appraises screen lovelies and stares at rotogravure romeos, the mechanisms in the brain begin to revolve. And revolt! Aren't these people human? Should they be set on pedastols and worshipped 1 as gods? No! But they are. Here is what ! three girls went through just to I see John Payne. j George Sutherland, Deseret News city desk editor, understand-- j ing the young heart and mind of a cub reporter, gave a few girls permission to interview the stars i s . i 'jiMII ..U1U...I.1..). I.MJ.LI .IIIU...III.LU.IIIIIIIIUI.IIIIIB,., '''"I llUUm who came to Salt Lake for a re-cent preview. So, feeling like Fidlers and Hop-pers, they proudly marched into the lobby of the Hotel Utah. Have you ever heard Brenda and Cobina in an argument? Maybe you would understand the scene that confronted them. Women, big, little, old, young, all clamoring and jabbering. Some were reclining on the lavish lounges of Hotel Utah. Others were , standing in groups gestic-ulating, sighing. And the expres-sions on their faces it was dis-gusting! The worst sick cow ever seen looked chipper as a chickadee compared to some of those wom-en's lovesick pans. The girls plowed their way over to the ele-vator. "I can't let you hounds go up there." Being an ardent fan of Jane Ar-de-n and other ingenious newspa-per women, they proceeded to look for the dumb waiter. It was heavily guarded. Three inconsequential girls soar-ed up to the first floor and melt-ed into the corners of that im-mense elevator. Two policemen entered their small world. Those girls actually shadowed two mem-bers of the police force to John Payne's room! A nose, a face, some hair. John Payne. He was standing a dozen feet from them nonchalantly swinging a towel over his arm. They were speechless, utterly and completely. If they'd only called his name he probably would have relinquished some of his pre-cious time conversing with three feminine fans. But they didn't and that water has traveled quite a way down the stream under the bridge. It's foolish but it's fun. Social Calendar J October 3 Dance. October 17 Dance. October 22 P. T.
