After being init- for the first time this year by the six weeks' tests, we very much relieved. It wasn't bad as we had expected it to be. Still, there are students who are bit careless in their work. They the ones who are still in a daze their grades shocked them badly. Perhaps, if they asked instructors the reasons for re- such low'grades, they would be surprised at all Those who received grades that just above the. "waterline," may three cheers for Mt. Pulaski High School. But for pupils that sank to the "bet- of the boat," well, they must met their "Waterloo." CRAIG ATTENDS CONFERENCE IN PEORIA booths were arranged on either side of the gymnasium where fortunes were toldfree of charge. One booth had a nifty little machine all rigged up which gave you a pleasant little shock when you held hands on .the table. All the students collected in the Manual Training room and were ad- mitted promptly at 8 o'clock. The first game was handshaking. Three nickels had been placed in the rowd and the last person to shake hands with some one who held a nickel received iL Everyone re- mained masked during this time Next we bad a grand march. Some of the masqueraders got all balled up, but it was fun anyway. Fifteen minutes was then spent in dancing, after which a parade for the ]rizes was held. Emmitt Shell- hammer received the prize for the boys and Gwendolyn Stahl for the girls. All the boys at this time were asked to enter a sack race. Some refused, so just a few entered. It was lots of fun to watch, but I im- agine it wasn't so funny when you fell dow It was rumored that one boy was nearly paralyzed the next day. We shouldn't wonder, the way they were falling around. The girls were not to be outdone, so they indulged in a "kiddie car" race. If you have never laughed, i you should have seen some 15 and 16-year-old girls in long dresses trying to ride a kiddie car. They finally succeeded, though. Boys and girls alike then had a pumpkin race. This was a relay, so it was lots of fun. The object was On November 3d, Miss Florence Home Economics teacher at Township High School, left to the eleventh All-State Confer- of Vocational Home-Making at Peoria.

Mr. Pulaski Township High School WHAT IS TYPE METAL this year, The basketball team has received an invitation to participate in the Pontiac Invitational Tourna- ment this year. The team will be unable to attend this tournament he- cause of games already scheduled for those dates. It is not an easy thing to turn down one of the best invitational tournaments in the state, but the team and Coach have given notice that they are, and will point for nothing but the District Tournament. Winning that District Tournament means beating our old- time rival, Lincoln, and then going to the Sectional Tournament COACH DERTINGER The Mechanical Superintendent of this page was inquisitive to find the composition of type metal treed to print this paper. Upon reading, he ound that it was a mixture of lead, tin and antimony. Knowing the boiling temperatures of each were different, he thought that he might secarate lead from the mixture by boiling it off. But much to his sur- irise the lead oxidized and formed a hard crust on the red hot mass. When the mixture cooled, a gray and orange lead oxide was formed on top of it. The tin and antimony, a silvery substance, was left com- bined in the bottom of the container. Antimony is put in the mixture so it will expand as it cools and make the type clearer. He thinks that dross, an impurity formed on type metal when it is heated, is lead oxide. FRESHMEN AND SOPHOMORE INER ROASTS The Freshmen held their weiner roast on October 3d at the Scroggin- Voile cabin on Salt creek. They met at the school at 5 o'clock and went to the cabin in ears provided by members of the class. While some of the boys cut sticks :for the weino iers, others built a  Refresh- !ments Consisted of weiners and buns, pickles and bananam All the Fresh- men enjoyed their first party very much.

With everyone in a circle, a story was started by one person telling just a little bit, the next person add- ing a few lines, and so on around the circle. The story ended with the very startling appearance of a ghost. Weiners, buns, apples, doughnuts lnd marshmallows were served, and they were "sure good," a one ph- omore ut it.

THIRTY-TWO TRY OUT FOR BASKETBALL PRACTICE On October 24th, the first night of practice, twenty-five men turned out for the second squad, or those trying to make that squad. The first seven men were told not to come for practice until Monday, October 31sL Henry "Hank" Black- ford was present when Coach Der- tinger got the substitutes or sec- ond squad, started the first few nights. He helped Coach teach them the fundamentals of the game. The fundamentals are all that were taught in the first week of practice. In the second week, the Coach taught all of the squad some plays and the intricate points of offense and defense. It will be a job that will try the Coach's patience, but un- doubtedly he will succeed as he has in previous years. There will be no cutting of the squad this year as all available basketball material will be needed. [ On the 28th of October Coach had Ithe entire squad in his room at 4 I o clock and explained the points of ]the new rules to them. The changes |from last year's rules follows: I ion s: ....

The most interesting of these are the turtle and the newt. The turtle is about the size of the palm of the hand; it has orange spots and green lines on its neck, its legs, and its feel We might call it the "king of them all,"' because it is the prettiest animal in the aquarium. The newt is a small type of salamander. It is about three inches in length. I The body is covered with black skin, there being no scales whatever. Of course, the animals must be fed.

Attorney Smith Tells Us About Bond Issue Mr. Smith came to the Townshi High School to talk to the pupils, not long ago, on the bond issue. Of course, we cannot vote, but we think we could take an active interest in such questions, at cny rate. After all, some day we all expect to vote, and what is better than knowing all about such things before that time arrives? It is our belief that if a lot of the older generation had Saken an interest in their day, like the young people of today are doing, more of our people could talk intelli- gently on the subjects which are be- ing discussed and would always go to the polls to vote instead of say- ing, *Oh well, my vote won't make any. difference anyway." Well, we know that it really does make a dif- ference, so let's all take an active interest even if we can't vote. THE HILLTOP OF 1933. Because of financial reasons we are forced to limit the number of "Hilltops" to be published this year. For this reason, we urge all people to reserve a book early to avoid the disappointment of not being able to buy one later in the year. We have recently decided to add an Alumni section to the book. Gene Brady ill take'care 0f this depart- while Page Waddell will be our eke editor. In the next month's Hilltop Bea- ;on, a list of all firms who are adver- tising in the Hilltop Annual, will be published. Don't miss them!
