EditorialBasketball season is here again and from the promising looks of the team we're off to the right start. The Student Body is held responsible or stunts between halves and the band is practicing to do their share of supporting the team. Billie and Elva are ready to lead us in the customary yells, so it's only fair that we turn out for every game and help do our share. The team and Coach White are powerless without the entire high school backing them. Get out and exercise a little more of the pep that you yell about in:
Go get 'em team, Go get 'em
Go get 'em team, Go get 'em
Go get 'em team,
Go get 'em team,
Go get 'em team, Go get 'em!!
Then we can add another prize to the trophy case. And at all games, always keep in mind our sportsmanship flag we won, for that's a stirring symbol to ever inspire the whole Student Body.
EditorialWe - the Buzz Saw Staff - wish to dedicate this edition of our paper to our absent staff member - Darlene Darrall. This is our contribution and our best wishes for your speedy recovery, Darlene. We've built the paper's main features around topics we hope will please you. The halls and classrooms seem empty with an over whelming silence not to be overcome until you return again. So hurry back to school.
The Editor, Staff and Advisor
The Letterman Club NewsThe Letterman Club met Wednesday, December 5th for the first time this year. Election of officers was held. They are as follows: president, Bill Carpenter; vice-president, Bob Purcell; sec-treas., Frank Moss; Sgt. of Arms, Gene Tuttle and Jack Penrod, assistant.
It was decided to sell pop at home games again this year. The annual N. P. Club initiation was discussed. Coach White, Supt. Riddlebarger and all Seniors will be honorary members at the "Grand Reception".
SPORTSDecember 6th the Pilgrims traveled to Payette to participate in the Snake River Jamboree. We drew Fruitland for the first game. With neither team doing much, New Plymouth came out victorious with a score of 10-6. Moss was high with four points.
The second game placed the Pilgrims against Payette. The faster but shorter team won 12 - 9. Moss Gilmore and Penrod tied with 3 points each.
Although Moss was high scorer for the evening, Gilmore, a newcomer to the varsity, and Penrod, center, probably were the outstanding players for New Plymouth.
PILGRIMS TRIPOn December 10, 1945, the Pilgrims defeated a smaller but fighting Nazarene Academy five. Moss was high with 21 points. Penrod was next with 5. Penrod is the center who has so ably taken Laudermilk's center for this semester. You'll hear more of him.
The "B" squad game showed the "Baby Pilgrims" victorious with a score of 20-10. Yosh Mura-ta was high with 5; followed by "Little Brother" John with 4.
NEXT GAME AT WEISER DECEMBER 18th.
THE CHIP BASKETA National Assembly was held in the high school auditorium on Tuesday December 4, at 9:00 a.m. Mr. Galen Miller Harvey and his "Fun and Music at the Piano" was featured. He played "Down by the Old Mill Stream" and showed the students different actions they could do while they sang the song. The students enjoyed his visit very much.

Have you gotten anymore of those dreamy mushy typed letters so characteristic of "a certain Junior Girl", Henry? Or have you kept the typing 1 class so busy with Budgets that "she" hasn't had time.
Phyllis M.'s motto "All out for the Navy" was slightly altered when she received a long distance phone call from Pvt. Bob Slott of Fort Douglas. Phyllis, how do you do it?
