It's Friday the 13th; Supertitious Beware
I
By CORA LEA HARPER Eagle Staff Writer Out of the night when thefuU moon is bright comes the smell of the lizard eggs in the witch's brew and in the shadows you see ladders and two black horses, This is the horror of Friday the 13th, Panther claw necklaces with burned crew's wings, black cats all around and a couple of flunked tests. That's the dreaded Friday the 13th. Friday the 13th has been the downfall of many people for centuries. Some Christians believe that Friday is unlucky because it was the day Christ was crucified. The Norse legend tens that Friday was a sacred day to the goddess, Freya, and anyone who displeases her or defiled that day was always struck with some misfortune. The Christians dislike the number 13 because· Christ and his disciples as a whole numbered 13 and one behayed Him. The Norse again have a. legend which tells of a party 12 gods were having. When the 13th god, an uninvited one, intruded, he was killed. So if these tales and fears of Friday the l:Hh wo.l'l"Y you - please, by all means - don't forget to' throw that salt as far over your shoulder as you can after you have spilled it, to hang that horseshoe just right, to rub that rabbit's foot real hard, and take long jumps over those cracks in the sidewalks, Why'?

Good Citizens Know Their Community and School
(Editor's note - Miss ROose Hart Dale's ninth grade English students were assigned a project recently where each. student interviewed a local citizen on "Knowing Your Community and SchQQI and Bdng a GQQd Citizen." "I'hose interviewed included lawyers, doctors, civic dub leaders, and faculty mernhers. The' students gave oral and written reports on their interviews. 'The following is an interview by Theresa Seitz with Mr. Kenneth White, superintendent of Mission schools, It best sums up the points brought out in the class project.)

Grade Curving Gets MHSers' Approval
By DAVID MERRILL The word is out. The majority of Mission High Schooler's, faculty and students alike, are in favor of curving grades. ,. In a recent survey, the Eagle Staff deter~u?-ed that roughly 77 per cent of those students voicing opinions would like to see teachers cur:re grades. That may mean that 77 per cent of OUT high school students are not passing this s~x weeks. Generally, it is considered that teachers often grade too strictIy and that the tests given were not always fair and indicative of the student's abilities. I feel that the best reason given was by Mr. Clarence Mayes, high school counselor. Mr. Mayes stated th~t "When test grades are not curved, the student IS competing against the teacher's ability to make a good test. When test wades ar.e curved, the student is competing agamst hIS fel.low s~udents. I.n my opinion, therefore, the curvl.ng of grades. IS fairer to the student because It protects him against a bad test.". . .. . Mrs. Annie Laurie Wolfrum, senior English teacher, did not agree. She felt that if ~ teacher does so poorly that a large percentage of the students fail a test, the teacher should throw the test out and give another. There were other advocates of the curve. Several students felt that often the testing was too rough, and occasionally those with a little stronger sentiment said that some teachers get a lot of joy out giving tests and other assignments that are impossible to pass. There were also those who felt that on occasion a student could really try and work hard but the grade does not always show it. o. • In a related question, students and faculty members voiced opinions on this question, "Do you feel that if a teacher has covered a subject well - will it be necessary to curve grades?" According to the theorum presented by Mr. Mayes, it would be in order to keep the student from competing against the teacher and his test .. However, there were those, notably pupils in the upper levels with good grade average, that very strongly objected to a curve in this case. These students said that if a teacher had covered a subject thoroughly the student should be responsible, and the teacher should not curve the grades. The only problem is that the teacher is the one who finally decides whether the subject was sufficiently discussed and whether the test was unfair. The majority 'said it was not necessary to curve in this instance. The third and final question referred to attitude. It asked "Do you think that teachers should grade to some extent on attitude in class?" Going back to the days of junior high school, everyone is against having a special grade for citizenship, which is first grade language for attitude. But. a surprising 75 per cent do think that attitude should be figured into the grade. Most believed that the student could quite possibly try extremely hard and still have trouble, so their attitude should be considered a major objector believed that it would by impossible to grade this way and be fair to all students. I think it's interesting that science and math teachers were most strongly against this form of grading, while the classes that were not so cut and dry, social studies and English were tacitly in favor.

SEITZ

My interview was with Mr. Kenneth White, the superintendent of schools. The following is a report of my interview with him. The high school has the responsibility of doing the job of preparing the high school student for activities in the community. The school must also turn out good citizens so that they can take charge of the community in future years. The role of the student in the community is to enter into school and community affairs more seriously than they do. Student leaders can interest other students in different high school and civic activities by setting a good example and by giving responsibility to other students. To get other students interested student leaders must take pride and show enthusiasm in what they do. The high school student becomes a good citizen of his school and his community by taking an active and constructive part in home activities, and in programs of school and church. A good citizen will go all out to help his school and community, and does not gripe about it. A good citizen gives his whole-hearted support in everything he does ..A good citizen will also take an active part in civic, school and church activities. All school organizations have an important place. Some organizations are older and more set, therefore had opportunities to contribute more. The two organizations. which have done the most to distinguish themselves in the school and community are the Student Council and the Eagle Staff. The Student Council simply because it is made up of members of all organizations. The Eagle staff contributes immensely by making known what groups and what students are doing the most to help their school and their community. Mr. White said, "You should get to know your school and your community because you get out of something what you put into it, and to put anything into it you have to get to know it." Mock trials and the use of voting machines in school elections help the student to know and understand his duties as a good citizen. Both serve important purposes. According to Mr. White, "Voting machines are frightening at first. If you learn to use voting machines while you are in high school you get over your fright." But more important than the voting machine is the act of voting, itself. Schools and high school students should not participate in political activities. Many times hard feelings are created among students when politics are discussed. Students should study political is. sues, and discuss politics with friends, parents and teachers. Students should always study both sides of political issues and learn all they can about persons running for public office.

Being Nominated for Queen Is An Honor in Itself
Every year around Homecoming time people begin to worry about who was and wasn't nominated for queen. The fact that such-and-such a person was or was not elected makes gossip headlines for weeks. . Some teachers have even been known to "suggest" candidates to their students. We hope and know, however, that things will not go too far. Our MHS girls know that being a candidate is an honor to the chosen and not an insult to those not so lucky. E'verybody knows that a lot of good looking people are not nominated each year. Heck, nobody even asked me! -John Compton

Language Arts, Math Departments Due Updating by Junior I-ligh 'I'eachers
A move to bri.ng the language arts and mathematics departments up to date has been started in Mission Junior High School. In - service teacher questionnaires arc to be distributed to teachers in these two departments. The language arts teachers will meet Oct. 25 at 3:30 p.rn. in th e Board of Trustees meeting room, The math teachers will meet at the same time Oct. 24. The purpose for the in-service program is to revise and improve or up-date the current junior high curriculum. The first step will be to formulate a general philosophy of education at Mission Junior t-Iig11 School. Once this philosophy is formulated,Mr. Oscar Valadez, junior high principal said, guidelines for the individual courses will be set, These new guidelines will hopefully be more effective, he said. The first step in formulating this general philosophy of educalion is to get a consensus 0:[ the Drop cigarettes drop you-forever,

opinions of the teaching stair members. These opinions will be voiced on the teacher questionnaires and will be tabulated by the junior high adrnin.strators.

Directors Enthusiastic About Play To be Presented by Speech Students
By PAM BREWER Eagle Staff Writer "This could be the best play ever presented by speech students ,in Mission High School," said Mr. Dennis Guion, one of the faculty directors of "I Remember Mama," the play to be presented Nov. 11 by the Mission Speech Club. Rehearsals are being held every Monday, Tuesday and Thursday from 4 to 5 p.rn. and from 7 to 9 p.m., and on Wednesdays from 4:30 to 6 p.m., said Mr. Guion. I-Ie and Mrs. Constance Haugarth, speech teacher, arc directing the play. "Mrs. Haugarth and I are really enthusiastic with this year's play. It has an excellent supporting cast and we believe it will be a good play," said Mr. Guion. Written by John Van Druten and adapted from Kathryn Forbes' book, "Mama's Bank Account," the play is a story of a woman, her husband and their family. The parents are from the old country (Norway) and the story takes place in 1910 when it was hard to make ends meet. Katrine, played by Pam Brewer, tells the story of the family of which she is the oldest daughter, Katrine becomes a writer. Mama, or Marta, played by Janelle Burleson, is the person about whom the story revolves. She is an understanding woman with an independence not common in those days and a common sense that couldn't be beat. Papa, played by Martin Hutchinson, is an easy-going carpenter who work hard and admires his wife. Nels, Donnie McClain, is the oldest and only boy in the family. Christine, Penny Ward, and Dagrna, Debbie Burgoon, are other children in Katrine's story.
