All suggestions v.'ill be greatly
appreciated. We ask your sincere
supoort^and we will in turn strive
to produce a school paper which
■■you, will be proud of,
The first edition of our school
paper finds us with quite a fev/ new
teachers and students. Although we
miss our old teachers, we have become
accustomed to our nev; teachers and are
■ Remember our last year’s teachers
who are in the armed forces of the nation,
]/Rien we think of them and our own
relatives in the forces, we should be
inspired to buy more war bonds and stamps,
We are helping them very definitely when
we add our scrap metal and iron to the
grovfing pile in front of our school.
Every piece of iron or metal helps.
That old iron your grandmother used^
which once held the dcr-r open, for
instance, makes thirty ’’pineapples"
officially called hand grenades. These
are knhwn to kill at least five and
wound twenty-five to tliirty persons.
Cooking grease that you once threw
out is now w'anted by the government.
Save each small ajnount until you have at
least a pound.
When you take care of your clothes,
your car, your'home, ana alx the things
you need in civilian life, you are

Many of us do not yet realize tlie
seriousness of the war situation, '
Before this preser.t conflict is ove'r,
it is believed that our standard of
living will be decidely lowered. We
have been o enied manj’' conveniences, but
according to world-wide reports, the
worst is yet to come. Let us do the
little things that will help the armed
forces in a big way. Don’t forget, we
have this \.ar to win I
At this point, I would like to thank
the laembers of the staff, the student
body and faculty for their support in
making this, our first edition possible.
Sirice the nev;spaner is the most efficient
■forin of expressing oublic opinion, we
hope that the students will consider
"The Cainpus Herald" as a paper for the
students-and by the students. The school
paper is the best v.ay of keeping every
student informed of v.hat other students
are doing in various school activities,
A box will soon be placed in some
convenient place in the builaing, where
the stuaents carl-enter their'articles.

31any of us spend a good deal of

we do not have. As students, ive worry
our parents because wm can't have

In this iiionth we celebrate one
o^ our most joyful holidays, Thanks-
giviiig Day, This Thanksgiving Day
^ should iiave a special meaning for all
Although the v«ar prevents our
having sojaethings we want, we have much
to be thankful for. There are jaany ,
countries where the children can not
go to school, can not get food or
clothes. We still have food, clothes,
schools ana churches, W'e have so much
to be thankful for. We should be
- thankful for our lives, our friends,
homes, churches, schools, fooa and .
health all through the year. We don't
alvj-ays have to live in fear of bodily
danger. We shouJ.d also be thankful
for the beauties of nature and the
world we live in. We have libraries,
public and '■)ri't''a.te; w'e have every form
of enjoyment, for a balanced life.
In sj)ite of thi. shortcomings of

some nrogress has been made in this
direction, V/e are happy that w-c are
Americans where eve ryone is at least
supoosed to have an equal chance to
work and live.
On this -Thanksgiving Das'', we
should take a few minu-tes' to think
auout the blessings that, are ours, .
