EDITORIALWhy doesn't every student in N. P. H. S. be a Sherlock Holmes and find the guilty person who who takes library books without signing for them, who leave-magazines on the library floor j and draws elaborate cartoons in all encyclopedias. Also find the persons that raid lockers of all articles that don't belong to them, especially pencils.
Have you noticed the waste baskets in the class rooms? If so why not use them for your waste paper. If you haven't noticed them - then we suggest getting glasses - we mean eye glasses.
It is shame that our floors should be littered with unsightly scraps of every size and description. Let's show everyone that we like to see clean floors and let's cooperate by helping to improve the looks of the halls and classrooms.
If everyone would do with others property as they would want others to do with theirs, how happy we all would be.

TRACKThis year N.P.H.S. has started a track team of which 4 men have turned out, Laudermilk, Zahm, Townsend and Wight. We hope the team this year is successful so track can be permanently established in the school. The track special tried out on the Fruitland track and they did pretty well.

SAWDUSTIt's nice to have a mother, but what if you had three - all at once? It can't be done? Then come to see the three-act play, "Too Many Mothers" when it is presented by the Junior Class at the high school on the evening of April 12, 1946 and see just how much trouble so many mothers at once can cause a poor young man, who only asked for one! "Too Many Mothers" is what the movies call a "laugh riot". It was written by Robert Ray, often called one of the country's most prolific playwrights and was leased from the Northwestern Press of Minneapolis, one of our leading publishers of dramatical material. This combination of author an 1 publisher guarantees the play as being clever, new and just about the last work in good entertainment. At every rehearsal the local cast finds new things to laugh at in the funnv complications and witty lines. This promises local theatre-goers an enthusiastic performance. Don't forget the date, April 12, the place, high school, or the time, 8:15. Put it down in your date book right now because you'll miss one of the best theatrical treats of the year if you fail to see "Too Many Mothers."

Seniors Enjoy Chicken DinnerWednesday night, April 3, 21 Seniors and Mr. and Mrs. Hopper and family enjoyed a delicious chicken dinner at the Country Club. Dancing was enjoyed by a few after dinner and most of the group attended the show following that. The evening made a memorable event.
Friday, March 29, the Student Body enjoyed forty-five minute' listening to Mr. Parkingson tell of India's customs, types of food, caste systems and climate as it appeared to him while he served there in United States Army for a period of years. His discussion was both educational and entertaining.
The Editor and her assistant plan to attend a Press Conference all day April 18 at Boise. In the evening a dinner and dance will be given to honor the Idaho high school newspaper representatives.
BRANCHESOne bright autumn day some eighteen years ago, October 3, 1927 to be exact, the stork circled over Burley, Idaho and dropped a promising bundle of humanity to Mr. and Mrs. C. H. Randell.
Gene, our topic of discussion, grew up with the years and finally started to high school in Kimberly, changed to Fairfield, then dropped in on New Plymouth. His calendar of activities state him as being Freshman class, president, Junior vice-president, football, a play, an operetta and clarinet in band.
His favorite movie actor is Turhan. Bey and Betty Hutton also lures him to all her shows. Gene's hobby is staying up 'til the wee hours although I'm not in the position of stating just how late they are sometimes.
Gene's seven weeks in N. P. H S. have already made him a familiar figure in the halls. He thinks N. P. H. S. is pretty wonderful (but don't we all?)
A brownette with dark brown eyes, Gene is 5' 9" and weighs 156. His ambition, if undecided by the Army, includes an engineering degree from Moscow. And with either or both, we wish him lots of success.
KNOT HOLESThe habit of a lifetime ha1-grown upon dear Keithie-Weithie as we again see him escorting "Arky" about. But this try brings competition in the form of the plumber in the Jr. play.
Now that the Packard has at last been overhauled Ruth can again save the leather on her shoe soles. No more dates on foot, eh?
And speaking of cars - Wayne D. is vainly seeking a winsome creature to accompany him on similar motor tours. Seems he has a car minus a motor. That's a big help.
Members are increasing daily in the "5000 Club." Rules for membership may be obtained easily from the office.
Imogene has at last met her match, after succeeding in forgetting Caldwell. But then maybe Norman Cooper is as good as any.
Wonder why Albert Burke makes those weekly visits to Vale? But then your guess is as good as mine.
Anyone doubting Gene Turtle's ability to play cards please write Kay Fletcher, Rte. 4, Boise.
The Randell-Gaston romance practically tops the list this week. Aren't Mercurys and love grand?
"Hello! Honey" writes Billie every third period to her Wolfish one and only. Again I say ain't love grand?
When you hear the professionally uttered wolf-calls in the Public Speaking play "The Pest Guest", you can really understand why Alex and Bob P. were chosen for the parts.
Martha C, with no luck so far, has been flirting with Floyd and Keith every moment they are available. If at first you don't succeed, Martha, try, try again.
I suggest you bring a bed to school. "Cookie", if you insist upon camping in the library every period. Our assistant Editor, Robert Whaley, is a steady visitor at the Stuart home. How do you do it, Bev?
Jack Moss - I'd think you'd get mixed up and take out the wrong one. Or can you tell Vera from Verna by now?
Jeanette looks lonesome these days. I wonder why?
Purcell hasn't been in the spotlight at all this week which is something too, too unbelievable. Or maybe that's the reason Shirley W. never comes to school.
Barbara A. and "Dubious" Davis stole brothers Buick and toured the country Sunday.
A new romance is being born. LaVena Jim and someone from Ontario. Oh, what this spring weather will do.
We're curious as to whose ring Donna Sharp is wearing around her neck. Do you anything about it "Clem"?
Who did you get in a fight with Mary C? But we really know it was only a cold sore.
These Freshmen really do things up in a hurry. Lucille W. and Darryl B. have patched up their troubles.
SAPJust Try To Imagine
Shirley W. or Bob P. coming to school for one whole day.
"Cookie" F. studying any subject, period.
James C. not coming to play practice.
Jack P. spending the entire 7th period in study hall.
Shirley P. and Donna S. minus the arm jewelry.
Keith and Floyd not saying "I don't care and you're not old enough."
NICKNAMESLynn Groves ............................ Ben
Paul Criss .............................. Butch
Mary Louise .......................... Arky
Jack Davis ........................ Dubious
Wayne Dillon ...................... Pickle

You can tell a Freshman as far as you can see him but you can't tell a Senior anything. (Read backwards: Do fools all, it do would you knew we.
Two can keep warm cheaper than one.
A girl's choice of a sailing vessel is a smack.
If you can't laugh at the jokes of the age, laugh at the age of the the jokes.
A KISSA kiss is a noun because it is both common and proper.
A kiss is a pronoun because "she" stands for it.
A kiss is a verb because it is both active and passive.
A kiss is an interjection because it shows strong feeling.
A kiss is a conjunction because it connects.
And again it is a preposition because it has an object.
WHAT IS YOUR PET SAYING?Billie C. - that's no lie. Barbara A. - Now I've heard everything.
Floyd S. - I'm not old enough.
Margie G. - Darlene!
Virginia B. - Oh! For Heaven's sakes.
Jack Moss - Ain't the way I heard it.
Eleanor F. - hubba! hubba!
Frank Moss - those Freshmen!
