EDITORIALThanks To You - Our Advertisers
THIS - fellow students and subscribers - is a revised edition of our old high school paper, thanks to New Plymouth's businessmen.
At the beginning of this school year, we doubted if it would be possible to have a school paper because there were no advanced typing students to type the stencils. But the generosity and the contributions of the town's business firms made it possible for Makinsons to print it for us.
Each and everyone of us are greatly indebted to these people, for the support they have given us. In appreciation we will try to make this paper , worthy of their support and patronize the firms who gave us such loyal support.
EDITORIALThis year, in the past, and in years to come, New Plymouth has played and will always play, for good sportsmanship. Our coaches have taught us to play the cleanest ball we know how to play.
It is not always the players that show poor sportsmanship but the people on the sidelines also get riled up because something doesn't go just as they think it should and start crabbing and booing. This is not good sportsmanship and is what we are trying to get away from.

Pilgrims Win First GameThe New Plymouth boys started off the season with an unusually exciting ball-game defeating Notus 12—0.
Moss made a 70 yard return on a kick for the first tally.
Carpenter, with a minute to go, dashed around his own right end 80 yards for the second tally.
Plymouth Loses To WilderPlymouth lost a hard game to Wilder for the first defeat. After battling without dividends for sixty minutes we found ourselves the losers by a score of 27 - 7. Moss doing the scoring for Plymouth.
Pilgrims Suffer Second LossThe Pilgrims journeyed to Homedale to be defeated by a hard playing eleven to the tune of 13 - 6. Moss doing the scoring for Plymouth.
Parma Drubs PlymouthPlymouth met their third defeat when the Parma eleven made a visit and went home out in the lead by a score of 25—6. A pass from Moss to Sasser was our only score.
Pilgrims Have Close OnePlymouth lost to Middleton for the most exciting game of the season.
After hard fighting by both teams Middleton finally won 14—13. Carpenter scored both times.
THE CHIP BASKETThe night was dark and cold but the NPHS students didn't let that bother them, they were out for a grand time. We gathered in front of the High School about 7:30, Friday evening and after waiting for the wagons for about 30 minutes we were off to our first wiener roast of the year. Jim O. dropped his glasses off the wagon, but could still wear them. After getting on the wrong road, we turned back and finally arrived at the Bluffs. First we told the teachers how to build a fire, then most of us climbed the "cow trail". After getting all tired and hungry we came down to the big, warm fire to get warm. It started raining when we began to eat, but we didn't notice it as we were having the best time.
THE HAY RIDE
This evening brought out some of the most special couples - Bob P. and Winnie; Jack P. and Ruth F.; Gene and Darlene; Alex and Billie, and many, many more too numerous to name. Two special guests were Dale Carpenter, home on leave from the Navy, and Jack Purcell, on furlough from overseas. They both helped make the evening successful.
It was raining pretty hard when we started home and everyone was either under blankets or getting soaked. When we arrived home, we were soaked clear through, but we didn't care as we had such a grand time.
HIGH SCHOOL NEWSNational Assembly was held at the theatre for the grade and high school students on Friday October 19. It was a motion picture called "Beyond Singapore" showing experiences of Harry Schenck and his comrades in the Thialand jungle. The students were very interested in the wild animals that were shown especially the python and crocodiles.
Another National Assembly is to be held in the high school gym on Monday November 5 at 1:00 p.m. The Serenaders under the direction of Ralph Bloem will be featured. Everyone is invited to attend.
Try-out for the Senior Class Play was held on Friday morning and the first practice was held Monday evening. The play will be presented the last of November.
School will be dismissed on Friday. The faculty is planning to attend the Teachers Institute in Boise.
The last football game of the season will be played Thursday.
The Senior Class is giving a combined Halloween-Sadie Hawkins Dance on Thursday evening, November 1. The student body is invited to attend.
Six weeks exams were given Wednesday and Thursday of last week. The students received a different kind of report card. The cards are in the form of graphs.
Any student, who signs the pledge that he will not molest property on Halloween, is given a free ticket to the show "Son of Lassie" to be shown at the theatre on November 12.
SENIOR SNEAK DAYThe Seniors, after leaving their nice warm and familiar school room about 7:15, Tuesday, October 9, started for Boise on their annual Senior Sneak Day. Arriving at Boise after a rather breezy and cold trip in an open truck, driven by Mr. Remington, the Seniors made for Hellers to finish eating breakfast and to thaw out.
The Seniors then separated into groups and each went on various excursions of his own, such as bicycling and visiting the radio studio. Some of the girls had their pictures taken and were good looking. They were chosen for a Halloween window display.
Meeting again at 11:30 in front of the Statesman building, they then went through the Statesman plant and learned how the Statesman newspaper was printed.
During the afternoon they all got in the truck and drove out to the penitentiary and went through it. Seeing everything on the inside they ended up by buying souvenirs made by the prisoners.
They then drove to Gowen Field where they saw how pilots are trained for the use of oxygen masks. After seeing life rafts and equipment they were showed the Norden Bomb sight, automatic pilot and how the bombardier is trained. The girls were given a ride in a jeep which proved exciting to them. Chaplain Joop, who took them around Gowen Field, then took pictures of the group.
They then went back to Boise. Some went bowling; afterwards going to the show. Leaving Boise about 11:00 they arrived home frozen and tired but pleased with the trip.

Junior Class PartyOn October 12, the Junior Class planned a party at the Community Hall, but it seems that not only Juniors attended for about nine o'clock Seniors, Sophomores and Freshman came bouncing in as though they too had been invited. After much threatening and persuasion they left - except for one or two who remain to be called "privilege characters". An enjoyable evening was spent dancing to the phonograph. Annette Gaston gave a reading. Refreshments then ended a happy and successful evening.

INITIATIONOn Thursday October 3 the day started with the Freshman girls coming to school in long underwear, with dresses backwards and long, stringy hair in their eyes. The reason their hair was stringy from the washing it had received the night before was the absence of ribbons and pins.
If you had been there you would have seen the boys in gunny sacks with their pants on wrong side out and rolled up to the knees. They were bedecked in the latest make-up too.
The Freshmen were required to bring a broom and wear one bedroom slipper and a logger.
Now to start the day off the little, green "Freshies" were greeted at the high school door by a few Sophomores carrying a can of bright green paint and the inevitable brush. The next thing you saw was a large green F on their foreheads and were knocked out by a strong whiff of garlic.
It was decided upon to bow and say "Madam" and "Sir" to all up-perclassmen. They also discovered they were to sweep the paths of the Sophomores as they desired. Also clear the sidewalk when an upper classman was sighted.
Classes went on as usual with some of the Freshmen arriving late due to the "sweeping of paths."
After lunch they visited the grade school, where everyone stood up and laughed. Then a tour of Main Street was begun. The stores were visited then they returned to High School. The afternoon was spent much the same as the morning. At four o'clock the tired, but happy group departed for their homes with the memories of a day long to remember.

KNOT HOLESWell! Well! Another school year and this stuff still goes on. I made the rounds this morning and no one seems brave enough or maybe something has happened to New Plymouth romance.
First off, a cute gal in the Senior class seems to be infatuated by a long gangly, blond Sophomore. Say, Darlene, do you really like Boogie Woogie?
Donna seems to like them blond, anyway that's what she was telling me the other day. Anyway he makes a good fill-in doesn't he? Bill DO something!
Say Percy, what does Winnie Gross have that H. C. hasn't or Vice Versa. Just can't give up the old for the new can you, Bob. It is more fun with two than it is with one.
Could anyone tell me who this "Bickie" is that Eleanor Fisher is always moaning and groaning over?
I just found that Mr. Wooly likes that Southern Drawl. She is quite the gal isn't she? Oh, one thing more, you better teach her to drive. Stop signs are very hard to get; the war was just over you know.
I've heard Wayne D. was bragging about going with three gals in one week. Where did you get all that dough Wayne? I can only afford to go with one girl three times a week.
Say Alex, I wish you would make up your mind and quit playing ball in this tennis game between Billie and Elva. It's making me dizzy.
Hey Ruth F., what's your choice in cars? A black '41 Packard or a grey '38 Ford? Packards do have the nicest upholstery don't they?
Phyllis Moore and Keith Remington had a get-up and go romance one certain Saturday night last week. (After Marvin got-up and went!)
Didja ever hear the one about the thousand mile journey made in one night? Just ask Keith, ! Wooly, Mary Louise Baker, Imo-gene Russell and Marvin Moore. I hear they really toured the country "that week end"!
Vera and Verna Sattgast were seen riding around in a maroon and gray Nash last week. Unless I'm mistaken the owner was Johnny Grey.
Charles this! and Charles that! is the topic of discussing when we're around Gloria Hayek. At first I thought it was Charles At las, but now I find it's just her one and only - Charles Caba!
Advice to Jimmy Gilmore - Please, for Heavens Sake, quit calling every girl you meet a cow!!!! (Enough said.)
Billie and her "Wolf" were ably chaperoned recently by Shirley Wilson and some "guy without a name". (I'm still trying to figure this one out!) I think he was from Ontario though.
I can't remember exactly who she is but I think it's Joyce Sorenson. Anyway, Claire German has his eyes glued on her and it looks as if they'll be hard to pull away.
Well, I have exhausted my knowledge and so many of the people that are mentioned above have threatened to sue me that I think the wise and just thing-would be to stop. So until next time I very sincerely remain.
