Program Urging present members of the junior class who are interested in securing jobs through the local distributive edu cation program, A. S. Proctor, local co-ordinator, began last week to visit various session rooms to discuss the program with them. Proctor explained that applications for entrance on the local part - time work schedule should be made during April and May, as jobs will be filled for next year just as soon as applicants appear to till them. “Prospects for students who are in terested in making retailing their career are fairly bright,” Proctor stat ed. "Student workers should possess initiative, should be above average in personality and should be adapted in some way to the job on which thes' are placed.” Requirements Listed Requirements for the program are as follows: (1) Students should be ris ing seniors, all of whom plan to gradu- I ate in 1943; (2) Students should have schedules so arranged that they may leave for their jobs by one o’clock each day; (3) Students should be at least 16 years of age, should be in good health and should possess a business like appearance. IMembers of the local retailing class spend one hour each day in class, studying phases of their individual jobs. xVlso, these student workers are re(iuired to work at least 15 hours per week on their jobs. Besides receiving two and one half credits per semester for their jobs, participants in the pro gram are paid for their work on the same basis as full-time employees of au organizatioi;.

Todiiy. for the purpose of those dear souls who will not reside in the halls of their old -alma mater come 1992, we survey copies of the school paper printed from the great years of 1952 to 1982, inclusive. Back in 1957 members of the student government association, convening in their new .$10,009 meeting hall, voted to have a beauty contest to select the 10 most beautiful girls on the school campus to serve soda pop and lemonade to the students while they were chang ing classes. Arrangements were also made to buy new lawn chairs for the grounds. Visitors Marveled Visitors to the school campus mar veled at the 20 beautiful buildings, some 10 stories high, with esculators carrying the students to and from their classes. On top of the main and sci ence buildings new parking sheds for autogyros had been installed. It is estimated that some 300 of these planes bring several thou,sand students to and from school each day. Newest improvement in the cafeteria system was brought about in 1960, when an automat was installed. This pro vided meals for 12,000 pupils, who con sumed 36.000 ice cream sodas and some 78,000 ice cream ])ies each week. Bob Patterson, noted band leader, will play in the assembl.v tomorrow morning, the paper said. Patterson, a former local student, is repoi'ted to l>e making $100,000 a year with his rhythm gang. Additions to ,the curriculum in 1985 included the study of advanced mathe matics taught in Spanish. Japanese and German were termed ■'dead" languages at the school. All in all, the school made consider able improvement over the past 40 years. For the school, which now cov ers some 5,000 acres, has had a long struggle.
