A new Freshman, Thomas Matsubu, has entered N. P. H. S.
The Senior Class received their memory books this week and are having lots of fun filling them out.
N. P. CLUB NEWSThe meeting was called to order on January 3, 1946. The business brought up was as follows:
(1) The initiation will be held at the gymnasium at 8:oo o'clock Wednesday evening of the 9th of January. As was stated last time all Seniors are honorary members.
(2) A new amendment to the N. P. Club constitution was made to the affect that dues will be 50c a semester.

BRANCHESOn February 10, 1928 a little stranger blessed the home of Mr. and Mrs. Milton Darrall. Weighing about 8 pounds, Darlene, for that's what they named her, has probably gained the title of being the most active of the Senior girls during her high school years.
While participating in several opperettas during her grade school years, she formed a perfect back ground for her high school plays. In her Freshmanyear she played in the all high school play, "Aunt Tillie Goes To Town," also in the Junior play. "Professor, How Could You?" and the Senior play, "Calamity Kids".
With the sale of Victory bonds, votes were bought by members of the Student Body and Darlene was crowned "Victory Queen" during her Freshman year.
She was Vice-president of her class while a Freshman and a Junior. This year she is Senior class reporter, as well as Vice-president of the Student Body.
Darlene has taken P. E. and Glee Club for three years. During her Junior year she sang in the Sextette. She has been Yell Leader for three years and as a Junior she was "Queen of the Wilder Tournament". Her favorite actor is John Hodiak and her favorite actress is Greer Garson. Her hobby is dancing and writing letters.
This spring will bring to a close her schooling here at New Plymouth where £he has gone all twelve years.
In the fall she plans to go to Business School and we're sure her pleasing personality will prove a great asset bringing success in anything she might do.
On another day, August 31, of the same year, 1928, the stork. was again winding his way over New Plymouth, This time he stopped at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Roy Fishback and left them a little girl, Blanche, to care for.
Her grade school education was attained at Falk and her high school at "Dear Ole Plymouth High".
She was President of her Junior Class and is Vice-pesident of the Senior Class, of "46". During her Freshman year she was class reporter.
She is 5 1/2 ft. tall, a brownette with fairly dark complexion and dark brown eyes. She is especially to be complemented on her pretty hands and long fingernails.
Her favorite actor is Spencer Tracy and her favorite actress is Greer Garson. She loves to dance.
Blanche plans to go to Business School following her graduation this spring. She has high scholastic standing and we know success will be hers and we wish her lots of luck.
Bob Purcell takes no time in distributing that basket ball of his. Helen Capps one second, Shirley Wilson the next.
