Postville Star (Newspaper) - October 11, 1932, Postville, Iowa FOOTBALL! Friday, October 21st Marquette here. THE STAR "POSTVILLE'S BRIGHTEST PAPER" Published Bi-Wcckly by Postville Public Schools HOMECOMING Friday, October 28th Waukon vs. Postville Established 1926. POSTVILLE, IOWA, TUESDAY, OCTOBER 11, 1932. Vol 7.-No. 3. Postville Wins Easy Game From Calmar Romp Over Calmar 14 to 6 To Win Season's First Game; Lose To Elkader 14 to 0 Postville High School's football team won a poorly played game from Calmar last Friday by a score of 14 to 6. Postville received to start the game and G. Kelleher returned the ball to Calmar's twenty yard line. Harrington took up to the five on an end run and B. Kelleher carried it over on the next play. Postville failed to get a point when they fumbled the ball. Postville kicked off and gave Calmar a touchdown by letting them pull an old timeworn reverse. They failed to get the point. Postville made another touchdown in the second quarter when Harrington crossed the line on a plunge. Again a fumble robbed the locals of the point. In the third quarter G. Kelleher ran twenty yards for another touchdown only to be called back by a decision of the purple - shirted headlinesman. However, the locals worked the ball up to the five yard line where they lost. Calmar fumbled and a safety was scored. In the last quarter another touchdown was stopped by the whistle. STAR PARTY TO BE HELD ON OCTOBER 14th AT SCHOOL GYM The annual Star party will take place at the high school gym Friday night, October 14, at seven-thirty. As a result of the Star subscription contest, the Seniors and Sophomores are to entertain the Juniors and Freshmen. Besides all members of the high school and faculty, the junior high Star council and reporters will also be present. Let everyone come prepared to have a grand time, for this will be the biggest high school mixer of the year. Bring plenty of laughs!! You'll need them!!! LOCAL TEACHERS TO ATTEND STATE MEETING AT DES MOINES The State Teachers' Meeting is to be held at Des Moines, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, November 3, 4, and 5 All members of the Postville faculty expect to attend. The district meeting was held at Waterloo, September 29, 30, and October 1. Because of the Big-4 Fair held at Postville on those dates, none of the local teachers attended this meeting. We know that when the teachers return from Des Moines they will have absorbed much valuable information and worthy inspiration. Elkader 14; Postville 0 Postville lost her second football game to what is considered to be the toughest, opponent of the season. Elkader. The score at the end of the came was Elkader 14, Postville 0. Elkader got two "breaks" and took advantage of them; Postville got one and let it slip through their fingers. Postville received and the ball was returned to the twenty-five yard line only to be fumbled on the forty. Elkader turned this into a touchdown and made the point. Postville played on even terms with them until the kickoff to start the second half when Postville again received. This time a group of scarlet and black athletes amused themselves by grouping around the ball and waiting for it to roll out of bounds < which it refused to doi. In the meantime some inconspicuous enemy lineman sneaked on the scene and sprawled on the ground with the ball firmly in his arms. As this was on about the 10 or 15 yard line it was but a matter of plays before another touchdown was put over. Point made by dropkick. After this neither team threatened to score-and so to the showers. Orchestra Prepares For Junior High Operetta Miss Howell plans to have an orchestra organized to play for the Junior High operetta.

Feature Book Week In Postville High School Faculty and Students Give Two Fair Entertainments Miss Segrid Njus is Added As Sponsor of The Star In order that our high school paper, the Star, may be bigger and better this year we have added a new sponsor to our Star staff. Miss Segrid Njus, teacher of Public Speaking and Latin, has been selected to take the new position. With Miss Teisinger and Miss Njus working together we know that our paper is going to improve, and we feel certain that it will rank with the best school papers in the country. This enlargement of the staff has been made to divide the work of proofreading, and so insure that each issue of the Star will have more careful consideration. Beginning this week each reporter must lrave his article in by Thursday night, thus giving the sponsors more time to correct the work. The Postville schools were represented on the fair program by various types of entertainment, both Tuesday and Wednesday nights. Tuesday night some of the members of the public speaking class presented the play, "A Nephew in the House." The five girls who composed the cast displayed genuine talent in the art of acting. Janet Sanders acted as property mistress and Margaret Sebastian as stage manager. The freshman and sophomore girls' glee club and the newly formed boys' glee club also performed. Wednesday night the teachers entertained. Miss Njus gave a humorous reading, followed by a reading and singing by Miss Finn, and Miss Howell sang several selections. A burlesque was presented by the faculty which proved a mirth provoker. A joke telling contest was held between Mr. Carroll, Mr. Bishop, and Coach Hancer. The judges, after long and considerate deliberation, gave Mr. Bishop the blue ribbon. Other features of the program included the junior-senior girls' glee club, and a brass quartette, composed of Charles Sonnkalb, Donald Galloway, Eulalia Klingbeil, and Clrfton Weihe. This week, that is, the week beginning October ninth, is known throughout the United States as Book Week. This week is for the purpose of increasing the desire to read good books and to increase the knowledge about good books. A prize will be given to the student in the school who writes the best book report. All the students in the school are eligible for this prize. The winning book report with the name of the student who has written it will be published in the next issue of this paper. Watch for it! Start now to read a good book, or if you've read one, sit down and write out your honest opinion of it. It need not be long. In fact the book report that is short and snappy is generally the one that wins the prize. Following are some of the classifications of books, any number of which you might be interested in: Books for Boy Scouts and Campfire Girls. Old Greek and Roman Myths for the Latin student. Stories concerning facts of history, such as historical novels. Books on athletes and athletics for those interested. Read the editorial "On Books."
