The Tuberculin patch tests which were given in the high school Tuesday, March 12, by Miss Galbreth showed whether a body had been invaded by T. B. germs Invasion or infection does not necessarily mean disease. At least sixty million people live and enjoy good health who are carrying a tuberculosis infection.

When T. B. first invades the body, people usually do not feel sick and they therefore will not call a physician. After T. B. has advanced, sickness becomes apparent and the doctor is called, but eight times out of ten, it is advanced T. B.

Tuberculosis begins with an infection which one receives from a person with active T. B. In most cases the infection does not develop into serious illness, at least at first. No definite line can be drawn where the minor infection ends and serious trouble begins.

The T. B. testing program is of special importance to all high school students, as this is the most vulnerable age. This work is made possible by the Christmas Seal Sale program.

New Plymouth Drubs Ammon
The Pilgrims journeyed to Pocatello to play in the state tournament for the third straight year. On Wednesday, the Pilgrims dumped the Ammon five by the score of 43-35. Kenneth Laudermilk laid the fire words for Plymouth. He scored 18 points in the first half and 6 in the second, with total points to his credit.

New Plymouth Defeats Iona
Pilgrims edged out Iona to get into the finals. The Plymouth boys couldn't get started in the game, but slowly beat Iona by a score of 28-27. Kenny, "our giant center", was high with 12.

Pilgrims Lose To American Falls
In the championship game, the fighting Plymouth five couldn't overcome the American Falls Beavers. They led in the first half 22-13. In the third period the boys played hard trying to go ahead but lacked 2 points at the end of the 3rd period. In the final period the Beavers started to roll in the points and won 46-37. Moss and Carpenter were high with 9 apiece followed by Purcell with 8.

Baseball practice is in session and we hope we can get some games with other schools. About 9 returning lettermen are out for practice.

Common school districts No. 12, 13J, 20 and 74 voted recently to join Independent Dist. No. 11. A new district will be formed and will be officially declared to be Joint Independent District No. 11 J. For the present school term these districts have been in temporary consolidation with Dist. 11. Much of the money used in conducting the school business comes from tax on property. Thus, with a larger district more funds will be available. Plans are being made to gradually improve conditions in the elementary school.

The Tuberculin test was given in the New Plymouth schools recently. Miss Violet Galbreth, of the state anti-T. B. Association and Mrs. E. Maudlin, county health nurse gave the tests. Out of a total of seventy three tests given in high school three were re-actors. In the grade school 276 were tested and twenty-one reacted. X-ray pictures will be given those who re-acted to this skin test. Those who can pay a dollar to help defray the cost of the X-ray are asked to turn their money in to the office. Those who were absent at the time the test was given will have time to take the test at some later time. Chest X-rays are quite expensive and the remaining cost of these pictures is being borne by the Payette Co. Anti-T. B. Assoc., whose funds are raised by the annual seal sale at Christmas. The cost of sending the state nurse into the field and the expenses relative to the test are also financed by the seal sale funds.

Tuesday morning Mr. Schweibert, from the College of Idaho, came to show some slides to the Seniors. He encouraged them to go to college when they have finished high school.

The Seniors enjoyed a weiner roast at the bluffs Monday night and were joined later in the evening by a few of the Juniors. As usual this party was planned in a hurry but a swell time is reported.

We have received our class pictures and have been measured for our caps and gowns.

Junior Class Play
Try outs for the Junior Class play, "Too Many Mothers," by Robert Ray were held Monday evening, March 18, in the auditorium at the high school. A Committee composed of the faculty members selected the cast as follows:

The play is to be presented in April.

The members of the Junior English classes are preparing essays for entrance in the American Legion Essay contest. The topic this year is "American Citizens, Our Responsibilities, Our Privileges". The essays cannot contain more than five hundred words. A committee appointed by the American Legion Auxiliary president, Leona Lawrence, will judge the essays submitted by Fruitland and New Plymouth schools.

The Junior class rings arrived this week and are being admired by the other classes.

Two new pupils have enrolled in the Sophomore class, Douglas Cross, Nampa, and Tommy Malson, Ontario.

Kerstine Rasmussen is ill with the measles.

March 29 has been set for a Sophomore class party.

The Sophomores made booklets and used the story "Silas Marner" by George Elliot. Some very nice booklets were handed in.

The Freshman class gave a party Friday night for the entire high school. Spring was the motif for decorations, which included daffadils, pussy willows and forsythia. A yellow and white color scheme was used for the party. Dancing and a short program made a happy evening for all who attended.

We have two new Freshman girls in our class, Ramona Cross, Nampa, and Barbara Walker, Vale. We all hope they like New Plymouth High School and continue coming to this school.

Why is it that the Freshmen are looking in every poetry book they see? Are you getting interested in poetry or is it just those booklets they are making?

Lucille Waldo and Mary Carpenter were the Freshmen in attendance at the basketball tournament in Pocatello last week.

We have four Freshmen boys who are going to try out for baseball and some are going to take track. The boys who are trying out in baseball are Claire German, Thomas Mitsubu, George Gardner and Jack Moss. Robert Sewell is trying to get the job of baseball manager.

Spring must be coming. Notice the pussy willows in Room 2.

In study hall Keith Remington and Micheal Zahm took quite a beating from the Bombshells of one-half inch thick rubber bands, poor boys, maybe they deserve it.

Every day is the same old routine, namely - going to class without a lesson finished, having that day's assignment again, receiving the same bawling-outs. There is certainly no place like school (comment of a Freshman.)

Some very attractive booklets are being prepared by the members of the Freshman class. Poems which appeal to them were selected and copied. Artistic covers were prepared to hold the selections.

Hovering over the house tops of New Plymouth, the stork got tired of carrying its little? package, stopped in at the home of John Paulsen and left a belated Christmas present on December 26, 1929. (little John Henry Paulsen.)

John Henry was probably an ornery little? tyke as he grew up, but anyway he grew up, and how!

He started to school in a little country school called Plaisted, attending all eight grades there. Then he came to New Plymouth High School, where he spent four long years. He had some enjoyment, however, by taking part in the Junior and Senior plays. He took the part of the "Butcher Boy" in the Junior play, "Professor How Could You," and the part of Hes Hoskins in the Senior play, "Calamity Kids".

His favorite movie actor is Walter Pidgeon and his favorite actress is June Haver. John's ambition is to go to college to study forestry. He likes school you see. His hobby is hunting. I wonder what connection there is between forestry and hunting outside of the animals and fowl? And so the life of John Henry Paulsen marches on, we hope.

One cold February day about eighteen years ago a little boy arrived at the Nakamura home in Seattle, Wa. He was name Saturu Nakamura.

Saturu attended school at the following places: Renton, Wa., Tule Lake, Calif, and Vale, Ore. before attending New Plymouth High School. Saturu enjoys basketball and his hobbies are eating and sleeping.

When asked what he will do following graduation Saturu says he will have to graduate before making any plans. Saturu has no favorite movie actress or actor but likes quite a few.

Hey! Barbara A., who is it going to be, Keith W. or Billy Y.?

"Here's where I stick this guy for the drinks," said the mosquito as he landed on Grandpa's head.
