|The Office Cat
Tuesday morning we discovered a small hole in the sidewalk in front of the office. No one knew how it got there, but we all agreed that something should be done about it before someone (and I am afraid it might be me) stepped in it and broke a leg. Being a resorceful type, I promptly marked the spot with a flag to warn unsuspecting passerbys. George (McEwen), the brilliant member of our staff, said a gopher made the hole starting from the botton, which explained why there wasn't any dirt left outside. I spent the morning puzzling over how the gopher got to the bottom of the hole in the first place, but gave it up as a bad job, and besides, a man from the street maintenance department came and filled up the hole, so there wasn't any use to worry about the problem any more.
The forthcoming city election is going to be rather dull unless something is done about it. There are three offices to be filled and three candidates running, which just about comes out even. I like a little excitement on election day myself, so I'm starting a whispering campaign in my behalf immediately. It's rather late in the race to begin, but what with my influence, my numerous friends, and the people I'm blackmailing, I'm sure that a whisper to the effect that I would accept the office will be sufficient to do the job. I always wanted to be a dark horse anyway. I get so tired of being a plain old cat.
John Blount came by the other day to get me to sign up as volunteer fire chief, now that we have a fire truck. He also asked Mrs. Boss and Carolyn to be volunteer firemen, but they got into a terrible argument over who was going to drive the truck, so John had to sign up George (McEwen) and Junior (Harvell) instead. Next month, I'm going before the Town Council with a petition requiring the firemen to wear red suspenders.
A word of warning to gullible souls: Hallowe'en is coming soon, and you'll probably see all sorts of black cats around town claiming to be me. No doubt I'll get blamed for a lot of tricks perpretrated by other felines impersonating me, it happens every year. Just to keep the record straight: that is the REAL me shown above giving the boss the scare treatment.
Remember: there are many imitations of, but no substitute for
|Parade To Open Hallowe'en Frolic
If you see goblins, witches, black cats and ghosts parading through town tomorrow afternoon about 5:30, don't run. You'll be witnessing the costume parade which opens the annual Hallowe'en Carnival, sponsored this year by Havana High School's FFA, FHA, and Key Club organizations.
The parade will be headed by the school band, and following will be pre-school, primary and junior youngsters, all attired in Hallowe'en costumes. A prize will be awarded for the costume judged cleverest in each age group by Mrs. Clark Plemmons, Mrs. B. E. Leverett, and Mrs. R. H. McDavid.
At the close of the parade, the fun will get under way at the school. Beginning at 6:30, visitors will have a choice of spaghetti supper (60c a plate) or hot dogs, cake, pie and cold drinks served by the FHA girls.
Afterward there will be FFA and Key Club concessions for entertainment, including bingo, the cat's mouth, basketball throw, a house of horrors and two fish ponds.

|Havana School News
Editor in Chief................Venice Walsh
For the past several years, there has been a slump in the scholastic average in our school. No one can put a finger on a definite reason for this. The war could well be one reason because everybody, rightly so, put it ahead of everything else. This lessened the interest in school work greatly. Then too, it could be said that no one has enough time to study sufficiently to make honor roll grades. Now that the war is over that could not be the reason and each day still has 24 hours of 60 minutes.
Over this period of years, the "just get by" attitude has wormed its way into everybody. It is like a superstition everybody believes in, in the present that it is so hard to get rid of. This "just get by" applies mainly to the subjects everyone knows least about, because to say "I can't read" and make 75 is easier than studying to improve.
All is not gloom though. At the end of the first grade period, there was a surprising number of students on the honor roll. As recognition of good grades, the P. T. A., has authorized the making of group pictures of those students on the honor roll and those with honor roll grades based on 1st grade period records. They are considering sponsoring this same idea for each grade period in the year. Maybe this and the example set by the Honor Roll students will be the boost needed to revive the interest in better grades.
Around The Town
There's just lots of news this week so we won't be dull by saying. "Well!! here we go again, all that rot!
Everyone surely enjoyed the Festival. We are really very proud that Orien was selected Queen. All who saw the "coronation" said that it was certainly proof that Havana is "in there, pitching."
In basketball everyone seems to think we feed our boys Wheaties because they are such "giants", wonder what they think we give our girls? We have proof that some of our girls are the "best lookers" in Gadsden County. That's quite a record.
It seems that going steady is quite the thing now. Here are four of the "steadies" we know about: Faye (Allen) and Dick (Williams), Dan (Miller) and Carol (Ellinor), Lillian (Dalton?) and Wilhoit, Elsie (Walsh) and Council Vickers, and probably a lot more we can't find out about.
Heard on the Concord bus, Monday afternoon, October 18: Earl Johnson, saying as he read a note from Marcia Swisher, "The only trouble is that they are all too short."
Whom do Lily and Holland Poppell date now? Heard that they were at church and the Festival with dates. Couldn't find out who though!
Julia Anne (Tullos), what did you mean when you compared Howard (Gray) with Dickie (Fischer)? Seems some others think so too.
Why did John Dolan give our Feature Editor such a "drastic warning" about keeping his name out of the paper? Don't you know, John, that would give anyone reason to "suspect" you of keeping something a secret from everyone?
Elizabeth M. (Miller) and Margaret V. (Vickers), whom do you two girls spend your time with? We think Margaret's time is spent with Mayo Lambert when he here, but what about "Lizabeth"?
Ella Jean (Driver), you'll just have to learn to like dancing so that you can have more fun at the dances!
Does anyone know where the most popular place was Sunday night? Seems there were: Bill and Billie, Faye (Allen) and Dick (Williams), Dan (Miller) and Carol (Ellinor), Julia Anne (Tullos) and Dickie (Fischer), Hunter (McCullough) and Ella Jean (Driver), and what was Douglas Van Landingham doing riding around by himself? What!! No girl? Douglas, weren't you lost?
Do Audrie (Gray) and Jeanette (Joiner) have regular boy friends or just whoever happens along at the right time; say, for example, like the night they went to the Festival.
We're glad to have Joan Lascola back with us in school. We're quite sure the Juniors are glad to have her too, especially two or three boys.
Is Don (Butler) still carrying a torch for that certain girl or has he, like Ray Mc. (Clellan), given up hope?
Who does Bobby Harrell think he is anyway? When all the other boys do good to get one girl, here he comes up with two.
There's a rumor that the band will march in Quincy for one of the football games pretty soon; guess that will bring about the meeting of some "olde acquaintances".
Since there is a football game in Tally this week-end, there should be a lot to do and write about next week so we'll be here. Look for us, that is if you can stand it.
This girl, one of our "dignified seniors" has a very sweet personality. Her description is in the song "Red Hair and Green Eyes." She is pleasantly plump and a very good student with a high schloastic average. This, naturally, is a "give away" but aren't they always.
Juniors Begin Practice On "Deacon Dubs"
Hollywood should always send a talent scout when the Junior class starts rehearsals on their annual production.
There is plenty of good talent with: Dick Williams as Deacon Dubbs; Hunter McCullough as Amos Coleman; Ray McClelland as Major MacNut; Howard Gray as Deuteronomy Jones; Betty Jo Kelly as Rose Raleigh; Patricia Gray as Miss Philipena Popover; Jeanette Joiner as Trixie Coleman; Julia Ann Tullos as Yennie Yensen; Don Butler as Rawdon Crawley.
When we asked Miss Moore, who is directing the play, if the play would be colossal, she said, "In a small way."
All combiation grades will be listed with the regular grades.
Enjoyed having Miss Helen (Lester substitute) and we are glad to have Mrs. (Mabel) Miller back. Emma Jane Dean from Greensboro is a new pupil in our room. We are studying about corn in Geography. We are going to make a store in Arithmetic and we are learning how to count change. We are learning how to speak and be a good listner in English. Ten made honor roll. There names were Barbara Jo Loch, Phyllis Gregory, Russell Blackwood, Jack Pierce, Betty Butler, Margaret Alice Weatherly, Carol Williams, Sarah Ruth Shelfer, Thelma Todd, and Glenn Stalvey.
Our girls have got a good game of soft ball. There were three people absent Tuesday. In Bible we are making maps of Palestine and we are enjoying it. We are glad to have Mrs. Jimmy (Jimmie Smedley) back. We are drawing pictures for hallowe'en.
We have a new boy. Four boys and girls made the honor roll, they were Earl Perry, Jim Henry Slappey, Betty Shelfer, and Margaret Whittle. We have been studying in Geography about Indians. We have been making things for Hallowe'en. We have been bringing flowers to put in the windows. People who brought flowers today were Jewel Jones and Merle Lowe. Thirteen boys and girls have brought Red Cross money. Honor roll students in Mrs. Zeigler's room are: Margilyn Aldred, Bobbie Arrington, Charles Dudley, Miriam Cowart, Carol Jean Graham, Wayne Gregory, and Sara Nell Johnson. Jean Harvell made honor roll grades.
Gail Cooper and Joyce Vickers were elected to serve on the Junior Red Cross council from the eighth grade.
The ninth grade have been busy painting the (black) boards a light green. This color gives the room more light. Sheldon Loch and Kenneth Haskins were nominated to serve on the Junior Red Cross Council. Mrs. Hough, Mrs. Blackmon, and Mrs. Haskins are our grade mothers.
We have been studying debates. We are now working on the debate question, Resolved: That the Civil Right program as advocated by President Truman is a basic principle of any democratic government.
Saturday, Dan Miller and the Herrings saw Georgia Tech become victor in the Ga. Tech vs. Florida football game in Atlanta.
Saturday, the FHA girls of Havana with those of Quincy went on the school bus to the FHA District Meeting in Tallahassee. All the members enjoyed a luncheon at 12:00, which was an intermission of the 5 hour meeting. Sarah Helen Bruce was one of the 4 who were nominated for state offices. Annette D. (Darsey) read the program of work, outlined.
Sheldon Loch gave a dance at his home, Friday night. About 15 teen-agers were present.
Many of the students attended the football games in Tallahassee and Quincy, Friday night.
The Havana High Key Club will present a Hallowe'en Dance at the City Hall, Friday night, October 29, after the Hallowe'en Carnival. Couples and stags will pay 50 cents to enter. Punch will be served during the dance.
Bobby H. (Harrell) and Ella Jean (Driver), Dick W. (Williams) and Faye (Allen) and Yvonne (Carter) and Jimmy S. enjoyed dancing at the DeMolay Dance in Quincy, Friday.
