EDITORIALThis year of school has just ended and although most of us are glad to get out and away from the routine of classes, we still have some pretty vivid memories of '45 and '46 that will be very hard to forget. It has been a very important year in many ways - both good and bad. But I feel the most important issue of this school year is our paper - the Buzz Saw. The improvement in appearance it has undergone is something of which we are very proud. I have attended numerous student conferences during the year and was surprised at the compliments received on this paper.
I'd like to take this opportunity, as it is our last regular issue, to thank my staff and our advisor, Mrs. Goldsmith, for the wonderful times we've had getting the paper out for you to read. There's been a few trying times for us all but-1 wouldn't trade the fun we have had for all the world. I feel our banquet for the basketball boys was one of the year's big events. To Bob and his next year's staff, I give all my luck and best wishes in anything they too wish to undertake.

NEW PLYMOUTH ENDS '46 BASEBALL SEASON
The N. P. track team of which has had very little experience attended the Snake River Valley Track Meet held in Weiser. Kenneth Laudermilk was the only New Plymouth boy to place, coming in fourth in the shot put.
THE CHIP BASKETOur town, New Plymouth, unlike most communities did not grow up hodge-podge, but was planned in its entirely before any houses were built.
New Plymouth was an outgrowth of an idea formulated at a. National Irrigation Congress in Denver in 1894. New Plymouth was to illustrate how good farming land could be developed in arid land. In September of 1895 New Plymouth had been established. Every detail had been planned beforehand even parks and public buildings as well as arrangement of some farms. The streets were arranged as spokes in a wheel and the whole thing in a circle.
Today we can see that most of the plans were carried out. Only recently a park has been started and now is going toward completion. New Plymouth has expanded in its business district. Several new buildings have been built and new concerns have come in.
At first there was to be one church to serve the whole community but this plan did not work out and today there are churches of six or seven denominations.
Our school started in a very little building. Today both high school and grade school need enlarging due to the many families moving in or near New Plymouth. Our town seems to be very successful for farming and with the Black Canyon Dam new farming land is constantly being added to our community.
New Plymouth has many stores of all kinds. They are all well stocked and people are able to get many groceries, hardware, etc. they are unable to get other places.
A11 in all I would say New Plymouth has turned out very well for a planned city and that it will no doubt continue to grow and enlarge in the future.
OUR TOWNAll is still and hushed. The town is still trying to catch those last few winks before struggling out of bed to begin the day's work. The sky slowly brightens and the birds begin singing. Smoke from newly built fires curls up into the air and by the time the sun is up, the town is well on its way to another day. Cars trickle into the streets, while the shopkeepers open their stores with much sweeping and dusting before the morning customers begin arriving. The service station operators unlock their gas pumps, put on air and water hoses and open wide the garage doors.
The school houses are unlocked and the children begin arriving in groups or alone, all enjoying the morning sunshine and fresh air. Then the school bell rings and everyone settles down earnestly to the day's work. A hum of activity fills the air.
Then the noon whistle blows and there is a slackening of pace. A restful lull settles over everything for an hour or so. Then one o'clock rolls around and all work is resumed. A steadier, quieter rhythm rather than the hustling energetic movements of morning fills the air. Towards six o'clock the time drags with tiredness.
At six o'clock weary people are homeward bound to a refreshing bath and then dinner with the family. People begin coming in when the theatre opens. Cars line the streets.
Then at twelve all the restaurants and taverns begin closing up. People trail towards home after the last show and the streets are slowly emptied of automobiles. Finally everyone is deep in refreshing sleep so as to meet the coming day. This is a typical day in Our Town.
The Public Speaking plays and Music concert were given Wednesday, April 4. This completed dramatics in Public Speaking. The class is now working on radio skits and themes.
Alex Conger, Frank Moss and Bob Purcell left for boot training April 27. This leaves only 18 seniors in this years graduating class.
The Juniors are busy discussing plans for a "Masquerade" party for crash-minded Seniors. In other words the Juniors are all prepared.
The Juniors are now the proud owners of $10, the remaining sum after banquet expenses of $208 was paid.

"May I have a card" is the saying of the week. The only time any member of the class of '46 was ever popular (written by a Junior!) Guess we'll have to "Try" a Sneak too.
James C. looks like he just lost his last friend, but then so does Jack P. so maybe the match is even. The business Arithmetic class has a most popular way of taking their tests. Study hall and lots of you-know-what!?!
BRANCHESRuth R. Remington was born on the 4th day of August, 1928 to Mr. and Mrs. Claire Remington at Big Spring, Nebraska. It was there she attended her first ten years of school. In June, 1944, she moved to Fruitland and in October of the same year, moved to New Plymouth. It is not unusual to see her now, a black haired girl with dark brown eyes about 5 ft. 2 in., passing through the hall between classes.
Ruth's hobby is collecting peoms, but she enjoys shopping, going on parties or picnics, or any outdoor sport. John Wayne is her favorite actor and Greer Garson her favorite actress. After her graduation she plans to give a year of her life to Brethren Service.

KNOT HOLESIt pays to be left behind in Emmett or so goes the story of Nadine and Beverly. The Emmett lettermen involved go by the names of Bob, Jack, Jimmy and Don. Only the six wandered over to the Oregon side and continued the romance.
Louise Ward has been riding around in a black shiny Buick. Quite a change from Wayne Dillon's motorcycle, eh?
Imogene and Laura viewed Payette's horse races Sunday with their old Caldwell beaux. It's a wonder Marvin's little Ford held up through the afternoon what with Imogene driving.
Bob Boyer again made the rounds with, blonds.
Wayne Dillon took a certain little Junior gal to an Ontario show recently. How he did it is beyond me.
There's rumors in the air that Grant McD. has a girl. If they are true and I doubt - I have heard everything - or so goes the story.
LaVena rides around at noon in style but quaint as it may be she always ends up on "His" side. That's Ontario for you.
I wonder how Melbadean and "Leon" are getting along. Oh these Senior girls and their beaux.
Anyone desiring information about cooking please contact Ruby and Eleanor. (Also there's a few others involved, plus a few too many menus from a Caldwell Cafe.)
The Sattgast twins haven't been in the Limelight lately? 'Smarter little girls are you slipping?
The Carpenter-Pope romance is now centered around a taped-up class ring. At this writing, Shirley is winning out.
News! News! Orpha Martin has been going with Wilbur Gard - Margie's "big" brother. This is something!
Albert B. has been aimed at but so far not hit by Cupid's arrow. Good start, Albert.

Kisses are the language of love. Let's talk it over!!
When you are down at the mouth, remember Jonah. He came out all right.
Ride and the girls ride with you - walk and you walk alone.
A kiss may not be dangerous, but it has been the end of many a bachelor.
"Why keep that school girl complexion?" asked the Senior as he brushed off his coat lapel.
You can call a girl a kitten, but never refer to her as a cat.
Also you can move in on her with such tender names as mouse, but never call her a rat.
You many refer to her as a chicken - but never call her a hen!
Call her a doll but avoid the word dummy.
Girls scream at the sight of a mouse, but few hesitate to go out with a wolf.
He died and has departed; And will ne'er be heard of more; For what he drank for H20 Was H2S04.
Better late than never - - a woman.
"So you met your wife " at a dance? Wasn't that romantic,"
"No. Embarrassing. I thought she was at home taking care of the kids."
I made a terrible blunder at dinner last night.
Mother asked me if I wouldn't like some corn, and I passed my glass!!
