EDITORIALI think that sportsmanship is one of the finest standards a school can have. That is something we should strive for and keep in mind during our tournament games.
Sportsmanship does not include the players only. The attitude of the crowd has much to do with the results as anything.
Trophies are not won by just any means possible, but are hard earned and well deserved. We found that out last year when we came out with flying colors. Let's try it again this year. What do you say? Some of the pointers to watch out for in sportsmanship are:
1. Keep cool when you think the referee has called something wrong.
2. When our yell leaders give fifteen for our opponents we should cheer then as we would for our team.
3. Do not argue with people on the opposing side.
4. Do not "run down" our team - for after all they are doing the best they know how and it only irritates them.
In other words - we should just do our best and everything will turn out right. As the saying goes: "You only get what you earn."

GUESS WHO1. Senior Girl - This Senior girl is of medium height, has short brown hair and brown eyes. Her birthday is in October. She has taken part in the class plays in both her Junior and Senior years in high school. You can surely guess this one when we say her favorite pastime is writing letters to her soldier boy friend.
2. Senior Boy - This certain boy is well known by everyone in high school. He has taken particular interest in all sports. His birthday is in December. He has curly brown hair, grey eyes, and is about 5 feet 11 inches tall. I'm sure you'll have no trouble at all guessing his name when we say he is very active in the Shaft Club.
3. Junior Girl - This active Junior girl was born in May. She is of medium height, slim and has dark brown hair and eyes. Her friendly personality is one not easily forgotten. She was seen around quite often with one of our now absent Sophomore boys.
4. Junior Boy - He is 5 feet 8 inches tall, has grey eyes and red hair - should we go any farther to say he is active in basketball, and to say he especially likes new girls from Emmett. This popular Junior boy is a whiz at cards during bookkeeping.
5. Sophomore Girl - She is a cute little Sophomore girl about 5 feet 2 inches tall, has black hair and brown eyes. She is proud owner of a basketball which belongs to her one and only, who is now in the Navy.
6. Sophomore Boy - His carefree personality is well liked by everybody. He is tall, has brown eyes. His hobby is sleeping - ambition, loafing and favorite pastime we suppose is dreaming, about whom we're not sure. He is quite an acrobat when it comes to driving cars, front end up around telephone poles.
7. Freshman Girl - This black-haired Freshman girl is well known by everyone in N. P. H. S. She takes particular interest in dancing and sports. She has a brother who is active in sports and we aren't exaggerating a bit when we say she's good at dancing.
8. Freshman Boy - We know a certain Freshman boy who is well liked for his innocent behavior, both in and out of school. He likes basketball and football. He is of medium height, has blue eyes, and red hair. He has a boy-soprano voice - need we go farther???

BRANCHESIt was a bright morning in the middle of the night. Two dead storks got up to fight. Back to back they faced each other and took the McDaniel twins to their mother.
October 7, 1927 in Mansfield, Ark. the great event happened. They are now senior in New Plymouth High School and plan to graduate this spring.
The twins differ in opinions on different things. They both agree on Greer Garson as their favorite actress. However, Evelene insists that Walter Pigeon is the best male actor, but Melbadene holds her own with Van Johnson. Their favorite sports are football and basketball.
Melbadene was on the student council in her Junior and Senior year. Evelene was secretary-treasurer in her Sophmore and Junior year. They have both been on the Buzz Saw Staff for three years. In their Senior year Melbadene is Business Manager, Evelene is Feature Editor. Melbadene is Sgt. of Arms of the Student Body this year. Both were Co-Editors in their Junior year.
They both plan to start nurses training in June at Spokane.
Their height differs by 3/4 inch. Evelene is 4 feet 10 inches. Melbadene is 4 feet 10 inches. Their eyes are hazel, hair brown, weight censored.
One crisp fall morning in Mans-ville, Ark., the McDaniels were blessed with a little demon in the form of a child which they affectionately called James Grant McDaniels. After the parents survived the first six years of Grant's life, they sent him toddling off to school. For four years he constantly annoyed the Mansville teachers; then he moved to New Plymouth where he finished his Grade School education and entered New Plymouth High School, as most N. P. H. S. Freshmen do.
He is 5 feet 6 inches tall, has gray eyes and dark brown hair. His favorite actors are Lionel Barrymore and Monte Woolly and his favorite actress is Ginger Rogers. The hobby of this popular Senior boy is his "worn out Ford". This year he was football manager and chairman of the Student Council. He also took part in the Senior play, "The Calamity Kids".
After graduating in the spring, he is going to take up law. Grant seems to have a nice future planned and we all wish him lots of luck.
KNOT HOLESN. P. H. S. is noted for "lover's quarrels." Now it's Alex and Helen; but don't worry kids, they're back together again.
Buzz Saw Gossip
All eyes and ears were open at the tournament. One little incident! Shirley W. was seen flirting with John Paulson; when someone teased her about it she just sat there with that "gleam" in her eye.
THRILL! THRILL! There's a chance of a new romance in N. P. H. S. for Jack P. was seen conversing with Orpha M. and we don't think it was about school.
Bob Purcell was seen sporting a black and gray, two-tone Oldsmobile; but don't look so bewildered. It was only his - ahem! - future mother-in-law's.
Lucille W. was the center of attraction at the game Tuesday night at Homedale when a little card with writing on it turned into a romance - I heard she said "Yes". Wilder must have what it takes.
Business Arithmetic isn't exactly the place for romances; but John Paulson and Geraldine Ross do all right!!
Flash! Flash! - well need I tell. If you rode on the bus to Wilder Tuesday evening, you would know already! Pretty good actions between Vera S. and Jack M.
Why is it around school there are so many girls screaming??? It couldn't be that there are quite a few thumb tacks, could it, huh?
Mary L. Baker's heart seems to have leaped a ways since a certain sailor came home.
Elva W. seems to have an out-of school boyfriend. It wasn't his idea, though.
One would think that Meridian is kinda' far to go to a basketball game, but not Bob P., Barbara B., James C. and Shirley P.
Margie G. is doing all right getting six letters in one day! Keep it up kid!
Billie C. used to say she didn't like wolves but - I can think of a certain wolf she is pretty fond of.
John C. is always griping about something; in typing the other day he wouldn't let a lady finish her typing because he wanted her typewriter. Gripe! Gripe!
Jimmie O. is still wolfing around trying to find a girl to go with him. We hope you find one soon Jim.
Maybe Jimmie G. will learn next time to get his oral report on time. Think so, Jimmie???
Freshman: I wanna go out tonight, Mamma.
Sophomore: Please may I go out tonight? I'll be in by ten.
Junior: I'm going out tonight, Dad.
Senior: Goodnight folks, I'll bring in the milk.
A Hollywood producer received a story entitled the "Optimist". He called his staff together and said, "Gentlemen, this title must be changed to something simpler. We're intelligent and know what an optimist is, but how many of these morans are going to know it's an eye doctor?"
Returning from his day's toil to his happy little home, father greeted his family.
"What have you all been doing today?" he asked.
"I washed the dinner things!" said Ann proudly.
"And I wiped them!" exclaimed Sheila, just as proudly.
Father turned to his only son: "And you, John?"
"I picked up. the pieces," was the brief reply.
