Price Five Cents Candidates Verify Election Results r ' J iL Executive Officers Elaine Hunsaker and Jack Lowder, Examine Tabulator Courtesy Deseret News S.A.M. Officers Begin Work New officers elected for South Associated 'Men for the coming year are, Jack Lowder, president; Dave Cooper, vice-preside- nt; Stan-e- y Kilbourne, second vice-presiden- t; and Dave McLelland, secre-tary. During 1941-4- 2 S. A. M. will present several activities, among which will be a S. A . M. Dance and Carnival, the S. A. M. Brawl, which is a father and son get to-gether, and the Settlers' Ball. The Barn Dance, one of the out-standing events of the year, will be sometime in November. C. Dewey Hale, dean of boys, is the sponsor of the S A. M. organ-ization. S.H.A.G. Dates Masquerade According to Elaine Hunsaker, recently elected president of the South H igh Associated Girls or-ganization, the annual girls' mas-querade has been scheduled for November 14. It is the first major event calendared for the club. Elections were conducted Octo-ber 8 and other candidates emerg-ing victorious were Pat Searle, 1st vice president; Betty Figgatt, 2nd vice president, and Mary Han-sen, secretary. Miss Lucile Monay, sponsor, has announced plans for the purchase of new furnishings to be placed in the S. H. A. G. office, thus enab-ling greater seating capacity. Ever Since Eve" Slated For Presentation at South Privilege of having one of the first presentations in the Region of the play "Ever Since Eve,'" by Florence Ryerson and Colin Clements, has been given to the South high school dramatic department to present November 27 and 28. A comedy in three acts, the play is literally "hot off the press," having been just tested for audi-ence reaction at the Northwestern university by summer high school dramatists and just recently pub-lished from the manuscript form. Employing the setting of a high school newspaper office, the play is a rapid-fir- e dramatization in which the increasingly ever-prese- nt problem of a woman's place in the world is broached by the stu-dents on a high school publication. Mr. and Mrs. Carter, are middle- -aged people who fully under-stand their son, Johnny, who is a strong advocate of the idea that this is a man's world. He is ap-pointed editor of the school paper and is very disturbed when Susan is appointed associate editor. Spud is Johnny's boy friend, a roundfaced boy who takes every-thing in his stride. He has a 4 theory that he is absolutely ir-resistible where girls are con-cerned. Susan Blake is fifteen, much older than her age would imply, yet childish in many ways. Betsy Erwin, Spud's younger sister, knows all the gossip. Martha Willard is a journalism teacher. .Announcement of the temporary cast was made this morning. A list of the final cast will be posted Wednesday, October 22 by Mrs. Genevieve II. Wilcox, who is di-recting the dramatization. The play is doubly interesting to students of South and workers on the school publication because of the fact that a majority of the reporters of the South Scribe this year are members of the feminine sex. Empty Wagons Reprimanded This is not a story relating the ups and downs of a prehistoric ve-hicle, but a flowery version of the age-ol- d proverb, "the empty wagon makes the most noise." Did you ever pause before a monkeys' cage at the zoo ? Do you remember how they chattered and twittered senselessly as they star-ed blankly before them? t South high school is hardly a zoo or an empty wagon, and therefore, there are no cages, but there are several individuals hav- - ing characteristics similar to mon keys. We can hear the same chatter-ing and twittering and notice the same blank stares when in the auditorium during assemblies. There are just a few who bear this striking resemblance. They giggle and laugh, voicing their own opinions and offering their own contributions, consisting main-ly of wisecracks, to the bewilder-ment of performers. Our student body cannot receive serious assemblies. Because of this literally "minute" group of thoughtless, inconsiderate, tactless t" students, our assemblies must be of a grade which will appeal to them as well as the rest of the student body. Consider the humiliation of per formers who are presenting a ser-ious program when suddenly from the audience a chilling laugh pierces through the gallery and across the footlights. Another fol-lows, and then another, a wise-crack issues from the front row on the right. This condition is a disgrace to the school. It is a childish, inex-cusable habit, easily remedied be-cause the offenders are so few in number. Laugh at the humorous parts of the program, comment when the assembly is over, and hush your neighbor if he is rude. Remember, "the loud mouth the vacant mind." Don't mimic the "empty wagon." Students Plan Mock Session In November Preparations to invade the State Capitol are now being made by the debate classes. As is the annual custom, certain students of debate will be selected to represent South high school at the State Capitol to study and express their opinions in a legislative assembly. The subject to be discussed will be the chain store tax question. Miss Harvey, the debate coach, and the students of the classes will decide on the candidates to act as delegates from South. One of the first events in which forensic students participated oc-curred last night in the form of a panel discussion at the Newhouse hotel for the Business and Profes-sional Women's Club. It was a regular meeting and the subject that the panel discussed was the strengthening of democracy. Mem-bers who took part in the discus-sion were: Lloyd Peterson, Ray Rackley, Virginia Livingston, Tom-my Pierce, Bob Reeves, Bob Ever-she- d, Lester Haymore, Mary Ann Mayer, LaRene Carey. Experienced debaters returning for a second year are: Lloyd Peter-son, Bob Evershed, Thelma Urli, Vivian Edmund, and Betty Jo Lee. With these several students with foundation debate experience, the debate season is progressing with marked strides. There are many events scheduled for the forensic students, among the most prominent being the ses-sions at Brigham Young and Utah Universities. Only selected teams go to these universities; two teams will be sent to the former and six teams to the latter. Any eligible student of debate may participate in the activities at Weber College in Logan. . Ryan, Morrison Head Classes Following the pattern of previ-ous years, junior and senior class officers were chosen in respective class assemblies on October 8. Paul Ryan, football hero who re-signed his S. A . M. office of second vice president, was elected presi-dent of the senior class, Frank Everett, another hero of the grid-iron, will assume the duties of vice president, and Margaret Kibourne will shoulder the responsibilities of senior class secretary. Their op-ponents in primary elections held on October 9, were Stanley Jones, competitor for president. Marva Tingey, vice president, and Ruth Larsen, secretary. Barbara Morrison, junior class president and a former student of Lincoln junior high school compet-ed with Milton Holstein, also from Lincoln, for the office of president. Retaining the office he occupied last year, Howard Eckersley was elected vice president of the junior class. Versatile Dorothy Brown, will occupy the position of junior class secretary. DeVoe Woolf, principal, has this encouraging comment about the elections, "The student body feels confident that these six students will do a wonderful job of taking over the helm this year." P.T.A. Members Anticipate "Back to School Night" November 5th has been selected as the date of the annual "Back to School Night," when members of the Parent Teachers' Association of South high school will occupy the students' desks and puzzle over the lessons prepared for them. Students are requested to stay at home that Wednesday evening and, if necessary, walk the floor with the baby, warm the bottle, or read bedtime stories to the lit-tle ones so that mothers and fa-thers can attend school for the first and perhaps the last time of the year. Teachers are planning to dis-cuss the problems of the regular students and answers the questions asked by the parents concerning them. Imagine mother or dad trying to solve problems in Latin, geome-try, or shorthand. However, they will, and in order that these new "freshmen" won't lose their way or enter wrong classes every stu-dent will be instructed to write a legible program of his classes. It would never do for mom and dad to be marked down as stuffing. The evening will commence at 8:00 p. m. with an assembly con-ducted by Miss Winifred Dyer, De Voe Woolf, principal, and Mrs. Stephen Gilmore, P. T. A. presi-dent. After the assembly, the students "for an evening" will follow through the class schedule. There will be no lunch hour at the regular time. Instead, with stomachs yearning for that ham-burger at the end of the period, classes will continue until each has been visited. After sixth period, the parents --will model the behavior of their children and walk sedately to the cafeteria where refreshments will be served. t Best and Burton Head Battalion ' Sergt. James R.

Cheerleaders Selected By Popular Applause By the volume of applause re-ceived at an assembly on October 6, Bill Brown, Blaine Smith, and Sterling Gillman were selected cheerleaders for the coming sports year. Each applicant exhibited his abil-ity before eight judges by leading the students in a cheer. After careful consideration and observation the judges reduced the number to the final three.
