G. 0 . Christmas Dance Tomorrow Night Little John Places In History Contest

On Thursday, November 16, the Journal American sponsored an American History contest for his-tory students of New York City, Long Island, and Westchester County. Only three students from Port Washington entered in the Long Island division and one of them came out a winner. Dick Littlejohn placed second in the contest after tying for first in the objective part but losing in the essay part He competed against boys and girls from all over Long Island. Port Wash-ington High School is honored to have such an "historian." The other two boys who entered thi.s contest are Elliott Manaker and Herman Jacobs.

Student of Week

—Photo by Price Two weeks ago, one of our

Seniors, Joan Lamble, had the honor of being picked by Mrs. Johnson to appear on WQXR in a New York Times sponsored panel discussion. The topic of the forum was "The State of Youth in the Future," and there were four toys and one other girl present besides Joan.

Known and liked by everyone, Joanie has a hand in many of our school affairs; her main in-terest seeming to be dramatics. She is Vice-President of Red Domino and as such is advisor to the new Sophomores' Junior Red Domino. She is also Presi-dent of Theater Group, Treasurer of Celerity, and Treasurer of H. R. 205.

All these activities, plus schoolwork, are enough to keep

Xmas Assembly Program

"Doc" Ehre's eighth period dramatic class is handling the program for the Christmas as-sembly this year. They are striv-ing to present the one-act comedy by Frederick G. Johnson entitled "The Christmas That Bounced." This a delightfully written play about a group of young married women who have a weakness for palming off their white elephant Christmas pre-sents on one another. This can, and does, cause some hilariously embarrassing moments.

The class is doing a very good job on designing and making their sets to be used in the play. The members of this ambitious class who are working very hard to give us a good show are: Bar-bara Blanchard, Dwight Otis, Michael Salomita, Sandra Fitz, Catherine Montouri, Patricia Cooper and Bertein Jacobs.



anyone's head spinning, but Joanie is just the girl to handle it all. Right now, she has no plans beyond college, but we are sure that she will go far, whatever she does.

The Port Weekly extends its congratulations to Joan for her leadership and interest in our school.

As The Port Weekly went to press we obtained the names of those people who have made the Honor Roll for the second mark-ing period. Room 201, Mr. Ke-zar's, is high scorer with four honor students. Congratulations. 101 Keith Bullard 103 C. Bottinger, W. Bowman, H.

Tomorrow night, from eight-thirty to twelve midnight, the newest notions about dances will hit Port Washington Senior High. Not only may the girls ask the boys, but both may come stag if they so desire. Don't hesitate to ask a boy because you won't be stuck with him all night. As there will be a large number of stags there will be a lot of cutting in. To encourage this, the G. O. is offering a prize to the boy who can prove he has danced with the most girls. All a boy has to do is get the autographs of the girls he has danced with.

Prizes Given Speaking of prizes, there will

be a door prize, an elimination dance prize, and a prize for the first girl who knows Santa Claus' name. Our Santa is someone who is seen around school regularly. He or she is over fourteen and stands over five feet. Santa will make his grand entrance at about ten o'clock and from then on the girls may guess who he is. Each girls may ask Santa three direct questions requiring "yes" or "no" answers. Then she may write her choice on a slip of pa-per and hand it to a helper. The name of the winner will not be disclosed till the and of the evening.

Have you ever heard ' of a dance where the couples have danced to a movie? Well, that is just what will happen tomor-row night. You will hear and see famous name bands on a screen at one end of the cafeteria.

All entertainment will be given by such students as, Marile Mar-zo, Judy Wesstrom, Joe Greco, and Al La Pera. Christmas carols will be sung, food will be con-sumed, and everyone will have a wonderful time.

The Master of Ceremonies is John Wing, who will act on be-half of the G. O.

So come one and all! Help make this dance a whopping suc-cess. It's not too late to get dates, girls; boys often wait till the last minute. We hope to see you at the G. O. Christmas Dance, De-cember 16th.

* Support T h e Port Weekly * The " P o r t Weekly" serves a double purpose to the

students of Port Washington High School. F i r s t , and fore-most, it conveys news and feature events to the student body, to better acquaint it with the workings and activities of our school. Secondly, it provides an outlet for those students who are interested in journalism, and it gives each student an opportunity to get into an extra-curricular activity with-out special requirements, such as high standing in class.

It is a rather strange fact that few people realize how much work and effort is put into the publishing of this paper. They seem to think it's all done by the printer him-self, not knowing that every bit of the layout must first be done by the students themselves.

The " P o r t Weekly" needs more willing people to work, not only in the writing of articles but in the numerous other jobs that help put out the paper.

The next issue of the " P o r t Weekly" is a special anni-versary issue, celebrating its twenty-fifth year of publica-tion, and we will need many more writers to do the special articles and features for this issue, so, when the giving of assignments is announced over the P. A. , we hope everyone with any writing ambition will sign up for a story.

T E S T W E E K — A t the close of each six weeks w o r k i n g period there is a week in

whi ch tests are given over the work covered dur ing that t ime. Students usually put the most t ime on their subjects the day and

evening preceding the test period. This may be considered con-scientious, but often i t is p la in " c ramming" . Good work cannot be done i n a shortened, overcrowded length of t ime—nor can real ab i l i ty be shown.

P u t t i n g extra study t ime in dur ing test week is a grand habit, but i t must not be forgotten that the person who works equally industr ia l ly over the entire school year is the one who gains the greatest knowledge and final reward.

A R E A L S C H O O L — Schools do not thr ive on study alone, that is the school which

is a real school does not. Basically one attends to gain knowledge of the w o r l d , its history, and its fundamentals. The entire system, however, must be supported i f i t is to succeed.

Student partic ipation i n activities, and spir i t for class and school, are as important as a math or language book. By supporting ac-t iv i t ies and projects yours can be a R E A L school—one whi c h w i l l be admired by a l l competitors, and interesting for its immediate members. Do your part . . your school w i l l go far, and you w i l l go far w i t h i t !

Sincere wishes for a Merry Christmas

and a

Happy Neiv Year

The Camera Club, although i t only started last year, has come along admirably. A few of the school's photo fiends undertook to start this club two years ago under M r . Leerheimer and was taken over by M r . D immic k last year. I t was a hard t ime starting out for at that t ime the school had no photographic facil it ies. This year the club has obtained a room for setting up a darkroom and has started to equip i t . Some of the members, Chaz Price, W a l -ly Fearon, Walter Wilczech, Claire Marshall , Car l Dahl and Dave McLane — have been asked by M r .

The Spanish Club is busy pre -paring for its Christmas p r o -gram to be held on December 20. The program chairmen for the meeting are Mar jor ie Peterson and Betty Nicholson, who plan to present a real Mexican celebra-t ion.

A f ter the business meeting, which w i l l be conducted ent ire ly i n Spanish, there w i l l be the tradit ional breaking of the P i n a -ta. The Pinata is a big earthern jar covered w i t h crepe paper. I t is hung f rom the ceiling and some-one of the club is bl indfolded and given a stick, w i t h which he tries to break the Pinata.

"Season i n the Sun". Also, M r . Schoen-born suggested that a program be held at least twice a year to make the club more wor thwhi le . This w i l l be discussed further at the next meeting.

met to discuss the big banquet which the members are planning. Things seem to be w e l l under way and the members are a l l very en-thusiastic about i t . Neverthe-less, i f i t is to be a success, the fullest cooperation is needed. A t the next meeting i t is hoped that the banquet w i l l be very w e l l planned.

grown-ups te l l me to enjoy m y -self because these are the best years of my l i fe . I f this is a l l l i f e has to offer I t h i n k I ' l l give up r i ght now. Grown-ups are apt to forget that a Teen's l i f e isn't a l l dates, j u k e boxes, telephones, and double malteds; it 's f u l l of problems—especially for us girls. Take, for instance, this th ing called "Higher Education".

"Gett ing up at dawn for school Almost makes me weepy. But come Saturday and then I am never sleepy." By the t ime I drag myself to

school I find I have forgotten to study about half of my subjects. I t completely slipped m y mind . I couldn't concentrate on Lat in when I had that dance on my mind. How hard i t is to remem-ber that I ' m i n school to pursue learning, not to learn pursuing.

History passes very slowly. The first period always does. But why did SHE have to ask for our homework? This was me last n i g h t —

After a rather qujet week, things started poppink around Port this weekend.

There were a lot of bouples at the game at Sea Cliff Friday night to witness our ^ smashing victory. Seen there were Pat Haron and Eddie Musselwhite, Barbara Wheeler and Stretch Smith, and Sally Enscoe and Dick Finnali. After the game Al La Pera had a smasharoo of a party with host and Nancy Mc Don-ough, Joyce Weber and Eric Jude, Janet Oswald and Stan Cutler, Brian Mulligan and Lee Ann McGrath, Dwight Otis and Fay Spratt, Gerry Volpe and Marilyn Moore, Eleanor McPher-son and Bill Jankowski, Norman Delan and Betty Nicholson, and Nick Teta and Jean Whyte.

Things were hot at the Sozzi's Friday nite since Connie had a small but noisy slumber party. The chief noise makers were Connie, Elaine Nielsen, Pat Mc Cormack, Jean Mc Gregor and Janet Kuhl.

Attention A. Nonny Mouse! You shouldn't be reading and copying old Port Weekly's.

Jean Volpe had a small riot at her house Saturday nite. Seen milling around were Aldo Mura-tori and Rose DeVoe, Bar'Bara Mattocks and Tommy Cosolito, Marie De Santo and Bart Cosolito and lots of others, Gerry and some of his friends dropped in later.

The movies did quite a busi-ness last Saturday night. Those enjoying the show (?) were Pat Haron and Ed Musselwhite, John Wing and Margie Peterson, Mac and Marge Hazard, Al Bilanski and Annabelle Sloane, and Nancy Nern and Joop Mossel. Every-body congregated at Bob Eck-ardt's after the movies. Some of the couples were host and Dot Breska, Joyce Weber and Eddie Sloane, Fay Spratt and Dwight Otis, and Nancy Mc Donough and Al La Pera.

Lots and lots of girls were at Jean Whytes Saturday night.

I'm always starved— "The scales keep a-warning New pounds I've stacked. I'm round, not so firm. All too fully packed. But so good's this malted I cannot deny it; I'll drink and be merry— Tomorrow I diet." The "Port Weekly" adds in-

Best Short Story Here is an opportunity for all

the students in Port High to de-monstrate that hidden talent for writing. The Port Weekly is now sponsoring a short story contest in which every student is eligible to win prizes and to have his story published in the Port Weekly. These prizes are 1st prize, $10; 2nd prize, $5; 3rd prize, $3; Each story must contain about 1000 words, being about any subject of the author's choos-ing. It is due on January twelfth after the Christmas vacation, during which we expect the bril-liant students of Port High to work hard. If anyone is in doubt about what sort of story to write, they can consult the "Collier's" short shorts or the "American" storiettes. The stories must be either typed double space or written neatly on white com-position paper in ink.

This week the Port Weekly is focusing the spotlight on Miss Campbell, Port High's red-haired American History teacher, who is generally found in Room 209".

Miss Campbell was born in Minneapolis, Minesota, and also grew up there. After, finishing high school, she attended the University of Minnesota and then did graduate work at John Hop-kins in Baltimore, Maryland. She earned her Master's Degree in American History at Columbia University, in the meantime teaching in a public high school in Connecticut.

From Connecticut she went to a girl's junior college in Wash-ington, D. C. for one year. Her next job was here at Port where she taught English for half a term, and has been teaching Am-erican History for the remainder of eight years.

Miss Campbell said that she has never been present at any world-shaking events, and that the most catastrophic thing that has happened to her was a ticket for speeding (to school). She had discovered that her clocks were slow, and she was afraid she would be late. She also said that she now drives practically all the time in second gear and she leaves for school at 7:30.

Miss Campbell has many hob-bies, among the travelling, read-ing, fishing at Bar Beach for flounder, playing the piano, and dabbling in oil painting. As to pets, her landlord won't allow them, but she is considering get-ting a cuckoo clock for Christ-mas.

The Port Weekly thanks Miss Campbell for her cooperation and wishes her a very special Merry Christmas!

J . V . Basketball The J . V. basketball team com-

prised of Bialobrzeski, Booker, Bowman, D'Elia, Epaminonde, Cichanowski, Gaska, Jankowski , Olley, Palawsky, Walters, and Zahn, played its f irst game against Hicksvi l le on Friday.

When the f i n a l buzzer had sounded the Port team was on top by a 61-57 score. I n the t h i r d period Port had b u i l t up a 19 point lead, but late i n the f i n a l period that lead cut to one point, and i t looked as if we might blow the opener. The coach, M r . H o r -ton, th inks the main cause for this was sloppy bal l h a n S l i n g . He was especially pleased w i t h the way Pete Walters played the boards and the shooting of B i l l Jankow-ski, who scored over 20 points. He also remarked afterwards that the reserves looked a l i t t l e green, but the f i r s t stringers seemed l i k e coal under a f i re .

The second game w i t h Roslyn was a different story. A l though the Blue and Whi te won by more, our game wasn't so good. The outcome would have been doubt-f u l if Joe Cichanowski hadn't chipped i n 17 points. The very bad bal l handling on Port's side kept the score down to 46-36.

The J . V. has out-scored the varsity i n both of t l ie ir encoun-ters. To our knowledge, B ia lo -brizeski set a new record i n the first game by foul ing out i n six minutes.
