shaping up for the big hop.
"A delicious array of popular
refreshments, including pop, pret
zels and potato chips will be serv
ed at the dance," Lynda Evans,
chairman of the refreshment com

of September until now, is the
question of the termination of the
first term.
During the summer, students
learned that the first term would
prabably end after the first week
in December, but as of then the
exact date had not been given.
As school progressed, this ques
tion was brought up more and
more by the student body. The
answer repeatedly given was that
a possible second date had arisen,
and that a change was in the
making. There seemed to be two
dates in question : December 4th
which falls on a Monday, and De
cember 7th, which falls on the
proceeding Friday. This ques
tion had remained unanswered un
til recently.
Although the first ten week term
will include aproximately eleven
weeks, school will end on Thurs
day, December 7, 1961.
