EDITORIALWe have had several comments in regard of our school building. In recent years it has been considered one of the best kept school buildings in the state. The cleanliness of the building is our responsibility as well as that of the teachers and janitor. Mr. Hutton has done a splendid job in spite of the fact that he has been slightly handicapped due to his accident last summer. We should do our best to cooperate with him in any way we can.
We should keep the grounds free of papers, pick the lunch sacks from behind the bushes and keep cigarette buttes off of the sidewalks. Above all we should keep our lockers clean and in good order. With a little cooperation we can continue to hold the reputation of having one of the best kept buildings in the state.

EINSTEINS?Three brilliant students of the Physics class got together and made an electric motor last week under the able supervision of Professor Harold White. The students, John Paulsen, Gene Randall and Frank Moss, perfected this experiment with the aid of the following articles: a knitting needle, two corks, a coil of wire and a magnet. The high school will deeply grieve the departure of these atom-minded scientists.
SAWDUSTGreat plans and secret meetings portend the Junior-Senior banquet which has been set for Tuesday night, April 23. The date was set up so that departing Senior boys might enjoy the banquet. The banquet will be held in the Walter Burke Hall. Mrs. Frances Purkhiser, advisor, Bill Carpenter class president, and committees are working hard to make this annual affair a real success.
SPRING PROGRAMThe music department under the direction of Harold White and the public speaking class under the leadership of Mrs. Claire Goldsmith will present an evening of entertainment to the commuity free of charge Wednesday night, April 24, at the high school auditorium at 8:15 o'clock.

BUZZ SAW RECEIVES AWARDThe Buzz Saw received the only award in the state of Idaho in the National Anti-T. B. Association contest of school papers. Irene Carlson, a field worker for the National Association, was enroute to New Plymouth Wednesday, with the state Anti-T. B. field nurse, Miss Violett Gilbreth, to present the award. Car trouble made it impossible for them to reach New Plymouth. The citation will be presented to the Buzz Saw staff at an assembly Tuesday. This is the second time the New Plymouth school paper has received this award.

SENIOR NEWSAlex Conger, Frank Moss and Bob Purcell will leave for the Navy on the morning of Saturday, April 27. The three boys played basketball last year and are out for baseball this spring.

KNOT HOLESMargie B. what is the matter with "The Little Boy in Blue" from Weiser Sunday night? Couldn't he skate, or did you have your eyes on some other boy?
Darlene D. was seen being escorted by a friend of her Navy friend.
Donna S. and Bob P. seems to have patched up their old quarrel. Anyhow they were seen after the Junior play Friday night along with prominent couples such as Helen Capps and Alex C. and Frank M. and Pat S.
Royston Hot Springs seems to be the subject of discussion among a lot of N.P.H.S. students. I wonder if they really go for the swim or the ride?
Who said Freshman were slow? Barbara B. seems to be doing nicely. How do you rate a teacher like Eddie Benjamin, Barbara?
Speaking of slowness Bob B. finally came out of the bachelors den and got enough courage to ask Virginia B. for a date. Nice going anyhow Bob.
Three surrounding towns are quite well represented by three Freshmen.
Ora B. vs. Emmett
Joyce G. vs. Payette
Margie B. vs. Weiser Well they can dream can't they?
Looks like Alex C. is really getting places. Have you noticed the "Just Married" written on his car? (I wonder what it means)
