English I Class
By Janice Bynum 9-2
The Freshman English class is
having a wonderful time for their
first year in high school.
They have learned many things
this year and have enjoyed them.
They also had a discussion on
Juvenile Deliquency. Think to
yourself about this question: Who
is to blame for Juvenile Delin
quency? you or your parents?
Juvenile Delinquency, which
means bad behavior among young
people, ranging from truancy to
really serious crime, is an ever
present problem. It shows great
increase in wartime, of course,
but there are always bad boys
The Scientific Facts
The eight-two class has studied
the chapter. Your Body' at Work.
The major topic includes the
Brain, Heart and the Eye. We
have learned quite a few things
too. We learned that we hear and
see with our brain. The brain is
divided into two halves.
There are three parts of the
brain, the Cerebrum. Cerebella,
and the Medulla. Each has dif
ferent functions. Our heart is
divided into four chambers. We
have had to trace the blood
through our bodies, and it was
something we all enjoyed. The
reason we see with our brain is
because the eye is a kind of
camera which picks up light.
There are six parts of the eye. The
whole class thought this was a
very interesting chapter so we
thought we would tell you about

- Social Security-
(Continued from Page 1)
I social security number (exactly
as shown on your card) and the
I amount of your earnings.
Your social security number is ,
important because it is your iden- ■
tification of an insurance policy
i with the Federal Government.
The social security tax which
your employer withholds from
your earnings represents your
premium payments on your pol
icy. The Bureau of Old-Age and
Survivors Insurance will keep an
individual record of your earn
ings based on the reports which
your employer files. This record
will be maintained by the Social
Security Administration along
with rriillions of others. If your
name and social security number
are reported correctly by your
employer, you will receive credit
for your earnings. You will not
leceive credit if his report does
not contain this information. This
credit is extremely important be-
: cause the amount of benefits
which you, vour parents, or your
future family will receive in later
years depends on your earnings
If vou are olanning to work and
do not have your social security
"ard, contact your nearest Social
Security District Office or secure
an application for a number
i (Form SS-5) from your local post
office. The Durham District Of-
i fice, serving this county, is locat-
' ed at 1433 Broad Street in Dur

Aren't the boys at Lincoln fine
enough for D. E.. A. B.. and

What’s happening to the daily

Is R. E. laying down a few laws
of her own or has W. J. gotten
Orchids to R. W. for coming to

have anything anytime soon.
Someone seems to be squealing

During the first semester we've
had a very interesting lesson in
literature. We learned about fif
teen beautiful paintings. One of
my favorite pictures was Deborah
and Nietzche which was a very
beautTul picture. The painter was
Gladys Rockmore Davis.
We al.=:o 'earned fifteen quota
tions such as, “Three may keep a
secret if two are dead", which is
a very true quotation.
We’ve also read stories from
text books which were very
interesting but the story I liked
best was The Kiskis bv May
Vontver. This story was verv sad.

Is School Really Out?
By Teddy R. Morrow
So I don’t have to worry about
lunch money and getting up early
in the morning. I can go swim-
m'ng, fishing, and sleep. Take the
radio outside under a big tree and
listen to some music and drink
icewatsr. Don’t have to worry
about my sister calling me, now
I can have peace.

In order that the officers may
have an easier job next year,
here are five splendid ways that
the parents may help.
(1) They can show active inter
est in what the school is doing—
teaching methods, administra
tive policies, teacher-selection,
(2) They can be open-minded
toward change, inquiring into the
•chool’s reasons for adopting a
particular policy or method be
fore jumping to conclusions bas
ed on rumor or partial facts.
(3) They can provide the school
with information about the child
which bears on his school pro
gress and adjustment.
(4) They can recognize the fact
that the home, rather than the
school, must assume major re-
SDonsibility for certain aspects of
the child’s development—moral .
and spiritual values, discipline,
health, sex education, extra-
(5) If they disagree with school
policy or school rules, they can
refrain from encouraging their
children to ignore these rules.
There are appropriate channels
for effecting change, and until
change is effected, a youngster is
more secure if it’s clear to him he
is expected to abide by the rules.
W« hope the suggestions above
will prove helpful for better
school-community relations. The
child’s caught in the middle when
such relations are not the best.
It is hoped also that these sug
gestions will enable the PTA to
be better next year than any
