EDITORIALThere is the old saying that, "In spring a young man's fancy turns to love" - and yet they never mention anything about the women! Already, I notice both the boys and girls turning toward the windows rather than the black board. Sharply brought back to attention by "you-know-who", they sigh wonderingly and in five minutes repeat the same scene. But maybe they are dreaming of state instead of the latest love interest.
Three little words are said to sum up the entire incident - yet I wonder some times if it isn't just spring-fever and the urgent longing to be out of doors. Let's hope all of the classes have many events scheduled for this most looker) forward-to season. Even though this is post-war enough things are available for an occasional picnic.
Maybe if we study real extra hard now the faculty will take pity upon us and cut down a little on assignments. (Everyone of us has our fingers crossed on that last remark.)
We also hope spring will see us tripping the light fantastic at the Community Hall. (Let's hope.) Another sign of spring is pig tails, huaraches, and "no socks" - probably more than ever this year. Only let's hope the boys don't get the same idea as the girls on that subject!!!
The Junior Play is another very muched looked forward to event and already there's discussion of it in the air.
The way the weather is now - a promising season of baseball is ahead. And when we play other towns - all those boys! maybe the girls can make up for the fact that their names aren't mentioned in the proverb "in spring a young man's fancy turns to love."
IN APPRECIATIONWe, the Buzz Saw Staff, wish to thank the Teachers, Student Body, Businessmen and Alumni for making our banquet Friday night so successful. Over ninety attended the supper and dance. For any questions concerning dates, new romances, flirtations, etc., we refer you to the Gossip Column.
SPORTSPlymouth journeyed to Payette Tuesday, March 5 to hand the Pirates a complete shellacking. Although trailing at the halftime, the Pilgrims got rolling in the second half to come out on top 37-23. Carpenter and Clement were high with 13 and 12 respectively. Massingill dropped in 10 for the losers.

WHO AM I?1. Of a girl I could never be "fonner"
Than I am of Laura Donner.
2. When it comes to knowledge,
I'm just a dope,
But on a date?
Just ask Miss Pope.

play a harp
Now I'm always in Heaven
with Donna Sharp.
4. Of measles and love I'm always yellin'
So I can be back with my own dear Helen.
5. I think I'll run away clear to Duluth,
Just to come back and see my dear Ruth.
6. Her Mama says to be home early
And we always are, me and Shirley.
7. I've seen lots of girls, both burlesque and giesha,
But none that I like as well as Patricia.
8. I might as well just get me a ---,
As to waste my time a chasin' "Arky".
9. I like girls and I like to neck,
But the last time my car ended up in a wreck.
10. Each girl I date is just a scream
But who knows? Maybe someday I'll meet a dream.
11. Call them either a sailor or gob,
We terribly miss our Logan and Bob.
12. There's boys galore, Bob, Frank and Weldon,
But none hold a candle to my soldier Eldon.
13. My love lives in Nyssa, just across the state line,
Our favorite sport is dance in three-quarter time.

When I took one look at Pvt. Dick.

HIGH SCHOOL NEWSWe took our six weeks tests last week. Report cards came out Thursday of last week.
The basketball team won the championship trophy at the District Tournament at Wilder.
The team, yell leaders, coach and managers were honored at a banquet Friday evening at the American Legion Hall given by the Staff. The team will leave early this week for Pocatello where they will play in the state tournament.
Mrs. Eckels of Nampa is now teaching the commercial subjects.
KNOT HOLESSpring flowers really blossomed out Friday night when Elva, the two Shirleys and Ruth F. came to the banquet with beautiful gardenia corsages, compliments of their escorts.
SPRINGING THE GOSSIP
Some of our newest spring styles are huaraches, braids-
Spring also brings out new romances such as "a very well known somebody" and Annette G. going bowling after the banquet.
We now have one more girl patiently waiting for mail from the Navy. But don't feel too badly Jeanette, they get lots of leaves!
Spring has brought out something else very pretty in the form of a diamond on Billie's left hand. Best of luck, Billie.
Bill Carpenter is still talking about his favorite melody "Romance in D. Sharp".
It isn't leap year but still Imogene, Beverly and Barbara loaded the car with boys and toured the country. Destination, Payette.
The Pope-Clement romance has blossomed into practically a steady affair. Shows that Jim is slowly leaving the "Wolf" stage.
Every girl has her eyes on the owner of that new Mercury, especially the Freshmen. But don't give up yet, little girls, maybe he is just playing hard to get.
We didn't know "Cookie" Flack went with girls but his three period nap last night wasn't exactly because he stayed up all night just for the fun of being alone.
A new Sophomore boy! Girls! What are we waiting for (besides a few more boys).
Orpha M. batted her eyes a few times at the dance after the banquet. Result - the attention of a very much sought after boy!
Faye G. missed out on the time of her life when she told Fred "Nothing doin' " the other night. But at that Fred wasn't exactly sitting every dance out.
What's this we hear about Crawford training for track after dark? People can run home fast (sometimes) can't they John?
"Guinevere" and that tall, dark dream from Franklin were hitting it off swell. But what happened to the "Globe Trotter", Elva?
LEAVESDecember 26, 1927 was a memorial day at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Moss for on that day a child was born into their home. It was left to Mr. and Mrs. Moss to name him. The name that seemed more appropiate for him was the "Little Demon" but on second thought his folks decided on the name, Frank.
Frank is now a Senior in high school. He weighs 168 lbs. and is 5' 11" tall. He has brown eyes and black hair. This year Frank is Student Body President. Anyone who ever takes in any of the high school sports is bound to see Frank in the game. In basketball Frank rates in the first five and plays forward, in football quarterback and in baseball he catches.
In his Junior and Senior years Frank was business manager for the plays his class gave. Frank's favorites are: favorite actor, Preston Foster; favorite actress,, June Allison; and favorite subject, Math. What Frank does after his graduation this spring depends on the Army.
