FROM "SPRING"
As yet the turf is dark, although you know
That, not a span below,
A thousand germs are groping through the gloom,
And soon will burst their tomb.

In gardens you may note amid the dearth
The crocus breaking earth;
And near the snowdrop's tender white and green,
The violet in its screen.

Still there's a sense of blossoms yet unborn
In the sweet airs of morn:
One almost looks to see the very street
Grow purple at his feet.

Henry Timrod



W. W. STOKESBERRY
The entire school was shocked Wednesday to hear of the death of Mr. Stokesberry, our own higher mathematics and physics teacher. He was found dead Wednesday afternoon after school by Supt. Riddlebarger at his ranch home. The coroner said he had died of heart attack Tue. night about 9 o'clock. His wife was in the East, so he was alone at the time of his death. His funeral was held at the Baptist Church, Monday at 2 o'clock and quite a number of the high school students went. The faculty also attended as school was dismissed Monday afternoon in Mr. Stokesberry's honor. He was buried in Boise. He was a well liked and respected member of our faculty and will be missed by all.

His classes are being taken over by David Goldsmith for the present



LEAVES
Eleanor made a visit to Mr. and Mrs. M. M. Joyce in Ontario, Oregon on July 3, 1927. (Seems she's prolonged her stay a little.)

The first five years of her schooling - career were spent in Ontario. From there she moved to New Plymouth and went to Plaisted getting ready for high school.

In her Freshman year she was a member of the Student Council, then she was a Sophomore reporter and now she is the Sec. Treas. of the Student Body. Her favorite actor is Ronald Coleman and her favorite actress is Dorothy McGuire.

Eleanor has brown hair and blue eyes with a pleasing personality thrown in. She weighs 121 pounds and enjoys typing. Her favorite color is blue.

Next year she is going to business college, after that she is out for a rich husband.

Harvey Kreps was born on May 5, 1927, to Mr. and Mrs. Fred Kreps, who were living at Soda Springs, Idaho at the time. He has attended school here in good old New Plymouth.

His favorite sports are basketball and baseball. In basketball he plays guard, in baseball in left field. Harvey belongs to the Lettermen's Club.

During his Junior year he was President of his class and his winning way won him the title of "President of the New Plymouth High School Student Body," during this, his Senior, year.

June Haver is his favorite actress, Van Johnson his favorite actor.

Harvey's plans for the future are with the U. S. Navy and we wish him lots of luck.

CHIP BASKET
TRIP TO GLENNS FERRY
We left here about 9:30 ed. morning with oil our basketballs suits, and equipment packed in alone with our clothes for a stay of four days. We rolled along to Boise where we met Chadwick (quite a coincidence) on his way to get bus ticket to Glenns Ferry. Coach Pearson bought some salve rosin at Kleffner's and then we kept traveling until we reached Glenns Ferry.

We put on our suits and practiced in the gym from 2 to 3 and then found the homes we were to stay in. We all turned out to eat supper at the restaurant before taking in the show.

Thursday morning we ate at 7:30 and Harvey, Lloyd , Kenny and I returned to our rooms and preceded to set up an electric train that was there and soon we had it percolatin with whistle and everything.

We went to eat dinner, supper, and breakfast at regular hours and we enjoyed the waitresses there, especially "Tennessee" who had just come from there.

Kenny enjoyed his usual breakfast of oats and before we left he had the three of us eating oats. At dinner we usually ate steaks whi1e for supper we made out with a lighter meal.

Thursday we. defeated Shoshone with a storybook finish. Friday we turned down the last Grace team and were entitled to meet Glenns Ferry for the championship. We lost that game.

All in all enjoyed our trip to "State" and are hoping we may go a gain next year.

TOURNAMENT
On the first day of the tournament the Pilgrims bumped into Shoshone and dumped them 45-43. Shoshone was ahead most of the game but in the last few minutes New Plymouth came from behind to tie the score 41-41, The we pooped in another counter to make the score 41-43. Shoshone wasn't asleep and soon tied the score again. In the last second Lauderm looped in one to win the game. Carpenter was high with 12 points.

The second night we tromped over the grace Red Devils 33-43. The game was leaning toward New Plymouth but it was not a cinch. High scores were Laudermild and. Purcell with 11 and 10 respectively.

We made the finals and jumped on Glenns Ferry just to get thrown and walked on 48 to 28. The Pilots were ahead all the way and never were checked once.

After the game they gave out the trophys. The sportsmanship pennant was given to Grace. Consolation Ucon, runnerup to New Plymouth.

ST. PATRICK'S DANCE
The Freshmen sponsored an all High School Dance, March 10th. The theme was St. Patrick. The hall was decorated in green pigs, pipes, shamrocks and other Irish decorations. A small table with a centerpiece of white carnations and sprinkled with shamrocks was later used as the refreshment table. Lime cool-aid, shamrock-shaped cookies, and assorted candies were served. A program consisting of Irish Music and songs wore presented by Joe Hopper and the Freshman girls. Mrs. George Robert white, a guest of the evening played some boogie-woogie. The dance was well attended and was enjoyed by everyone.



JUNIOR PLAY
Practice is under way for the Junior Play, "Professor, How Could You", to be presented early in April. There will be two performances, the afternoon of April 5 and an evening performance April 6th at 8:15. Mrs. Snyder and Mrs. Purkhisur are co-directors of the play. The plot in brief is as follows:

A history professor, Keats (Bob Purcell) has been offered a promotion as Dean of a college on the condition that he find himself a wife. Three friends, John (Alex Conger), Vickie (Darlene Darrall), and Boggins, the butler (Bob Platz) each pick a candidate to wed the would be dean. They are Priscilla, John's secretary, (Ruby Kreps), Valerie, "a cute southern gal", (LaVena Jim), and Tootsie Bean, a girl who can cook, (Margie Gard). Things get wonderfully mixed up and a very surprising ending results. Numerous laughs are promised by Grandma and Grandpa (Ruth Remington and Gene Tuttle) and, wrestler brother Butcher-boy (John Paulsen).

GOSSIP
Several people ask me this question: "Why wasn't Faye Gardener to the school dance Saturday night?" Well, if you had the choice between a school dance and a date with Fred Nichols which would, you take? (Hold on he belongs to Faye !!)

I thought it was the custom for the boy to hug his girl-friend but evidently Ailene and Johnnie want to be different and do it vice versa - anyway several people saw Ailene taking advantage of the back seats of the theatre holding Johnnie while he slept.

Freshmen will be Freshmen but at times they copy their "elders" (ahem) and date. Marjorie Penrod and Bob Whaley chose the St. Patrick's dance to make their debut. You make a nice couple, kids!

I thought it was only soldiers, sailors, and marines who had pinup girls but evidently Bonnie N, wants to be the first to change the custom - caurse a picture of "Dutch" Werner is Continuously seen in her possession.

I wish I could borrow my brother-in-law's car to take out my Freshman girl-friend like Wayne Dillon does. Leota Munger seems well and happy after the ride so apparently Wayne isn't too bad a driver.

You and Dale looked like you were having fun at the Gay Way Saturday night, Jeanette. One never knows what fun is until the Navy comes home.

Ucon boys seemed to have favored the New Plymouth girls - for Shirley Pope and Jeanette F. came home with stars in their eyes.
