Postville Star (Newspaper) - October 27, 1932, Postville, Iowa HOMECOMING , Friday, October 28th Waukon vs. Postville THE STAR "POSTVILLE'S BRIGHTEST PAPER" Published Bi-Weckly by Postville Public Schools HOMECOMING Friday, October 28th Waukon vs. Postville Established 1926. POSTVILLE, IOWA, THURSDAY, OCTOBER 27, 1932. Vol. 7-No. 4. WELCOME TO FIRST HOMECOMING Four Students On First Honor Roll "New System of Grading Is Adopted; Three Separate Classifications For Honor Students The first six weeks period of school has now been completed and the grades made out. This year the system of grading has been changed somewhat, letters being used in place of figures on the report cards. A represents the grades from 95%-100%; B, 90-94; C, 80-89; D, 75-79; F, failing work. Because of the difficulty of grading closely enough to determine the exact percent a student earns, this method proves more satisfactory. Those students whose averages were above 90% have their names placed on the honor roll; those whose averages were above 88% receive honorable mention; those whose averages were above 85% have their names placed on the scholastic list. The lists for this six weeks are as follows: Honor roll: Opal Handy, Jean Hor-gan, Clifton Weihe, Eulalia Klingbeil. Honorable mention: Genevieve Bachelder, Mildred Bollman, LaVonne Thomson, Lyle Poesch, Eileen Kozelka, Ada Schultz, Helen Schultz, Mary Hope Humphrey, Mable Ewing, Wilma Galloway, Don Galloway, Marion Brandt, Bob Burling. Scholastic: Janet Sanders, Aldora Loftsgard, Telmer Olson, Charles Sonnkalb, Lloyd Barrett, Hope Harris, Don Polsom, Verna Sieg, Don Peterson, Loretta Schlee, Josephine Koev-enig, Irene Welzel, Neil Bulman, Neva Kluss. Kathryn Beucher, Vivian Welsch, Hilda Depping, Iona Thoreson, Elliot Heusman, Doris Schultz, Margaret Sebastian, Carol Jacobia, Hazel Ewing, Bea McNeil, Roland Peterson, Dale Peterson, Arthur Thoma, Gretch-en Hein, Viola Livingood, Irene Me-land, Cathryn Stone. OUR ALMA MATER Seniors Blossom Out With New Sporty Class Rings Ever since the rings were chosen, in a heated discussion between the boys and girls, the Seniors have been waiting patiently for them. The ring the boys chose and won is a gold ring with an onyx setting, and in the center of the onyx is a small gold shield on which is printed "Postville." A number of the Seniors are already wearing their good looking rings. And are they proud of them? Well I guess they are! When you want to look at one just stop any proud looking Senior and he will be pleased to display his for you. Some members of the Senior class are not buying rings because of the �well known depression. The others are taking advantage of the opportunity to secure a ring as they consider it a souvenir which represents twelve years of school work. Everyone knows that we must have a good ring if i,t can represent a Senior class of such a high calibre. Postville Defeated 6-0 In Close Batte Marquette Gets Lone Score In Fourth Period After Intercepting Pass and a 65 Yard Run Home Economics Class Is Studying Vitamins The Foods class has finished an interesting experiment with muffins. The object of this experiment was to find the best method for mixing muffins and whether or not bread flour would be more suitable than pastry flour. They are now studying the different kinds of vitamins and learning the foods which contain them. The class expects to make posters illustrating the foods rich in vitamins. The Clothing class has finished its work on the new theatrical curtains for the cooking laboratory and are now studying the care of clothing. Each member of the clas sis making a chart to check herself on personal grooming. Homecoming tickets are now on sale at 25 cents each. If you buy them at the gate they will cost 35 cents. Student Council Planning Special Assembly Program The High School Student Council held a meeting last Thursday afternoon. The business at hand was the planning of the details for the Homecoming program. They also started plans for an Armistice Day program. The students are to be given an opportunity this year of purchasing an activity ticket. This ticket will admit the purchaser to all athletic events, and will cost only about half as much as though the student attended all of the games and paid for his ticket each time. This matter was presented to the assembly by Coach Hancer and Supt. Carroll. The students seem to be very enthusiastic about the new plan. Opal Handy Tells of Exciting Western Trip We had been waiting for Opal's treat a long time and were finally rewarded for our patience. Tuesday morning, two weeks ago, Opal Handy described to the High School assembly her trip to California and the Olympics. She' told us a great many very wonderful facts, some of them very surprising. The most interesting part of her talk, however, was the fact that she brought with her some of the curios she had picked up on her trip. She had some very old pieces of pottery which she had picked up in Mesa Verde National Park. From Sequia National Park she brought home some articles made from the famous red wood trees. She picked up a number of curios made on the Indian reservation she had visited. Her description of the Olympic Games made them more wonderful to us than we had ever imagined they could be. Lack of punch at the goal line and an intercepted pass beat Postville last Friday. The locals threw away two wonderful chances to score, once in the first quarter and once in the last period. The game started with Postville receiving. They took the ball and carried it up the Marquette's one yard line where they lost it on downs. Postville continued to have the edge over the visitors throughout the game but the boys were getting their signals mixed up. Marquette made its touchdown early in the fourth quarter when Hunter intercepted on Thoma's pass and raced sixty yards for a touchdown. While making this run the aforementioned Hunter ran directly into two of the locals' largest huskies, however, the huskies, with their native politeness, stepped to one side and wished the gentleman from the river "Bon Voyage." Final score: Postville 0; Marquette 6. Friday, October 28, is Homecoming. The feature of the day is the football game between Postville and Waukon. It promises to be a very exciting game. Don't miss it! Waukon's lineup is as follows: Herbert Elliker, L. E.; Maurice Kaveny, L. T.; Kenneth Senneff, L. G.; Keith Bigelow, C; Paul Senneff, R. G.; Harold Deters, R. T.; Walter Deters, R.

The first major event of the year, aside from the football games, was held list Friday night in the school gym. This was the much looked forward to Star Party, the first 'high school party of the year. The Freshman and Junior classes with the faculty and Junior High staff were entertained by the Senior and Sophomore classes. The Seniors were in charge of the entertainment and the Sophomores, the refreshments. George Kelleher acted as master-of-ceremonies and, although he was probably hoarse the next day, we agree he made a pretty good one. After rinding out what a number of simple words meant, we played all sorts of games until time for the eats, which consisted of drum sticks made of ice cream. The party was enjoyed by everyone and we are all hoping for many more school parties in the future. COMING EVENTS October 28-Football, Waukon, here. November 4 - Football, Decorah, there.
