What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

Boslaugh Subscription ............... $1 per year O at ion s U p h e l d Speaking as chaper­ ones who attended the basketball tournament at Poison, we would like to correct the impression that may have been given read­ ers by the editorial regarding students' behavior in the last issue of tho Ever­ green. The good name of LCHS was certainly upheld by these young people; we have yet to hear one word of comp­ laint about any of the players or the stud­ ents. Their parents and their school can well be proud of them; we were. Mrs. Lloyd West Mrs. Dock Webb Mrs. Harvey Swenson Mrs. James Hurst Mrs. Rodney Witt Mrs. Ken Stockner Wilfred Johnson © v y The time is soon, coming when the public\ will be asked to vote1, a mill levy'to support; the schools. The pub­ lic is being informed exactly as to how this levy is to bo used. If• everyone could realize that the very small amount the taxes are raised will more than pay dividends in the long run, they would not hesitate to vote in favor of the levy. The students in our school are our future citizens. How we train them and educate them is our resnonsibility. It is short sighted indeed to veto ‘down a few mills, and save the very small expense incurred, and in so doing deprive our youth of needed educa­ tion, and indeed de­ prive ourselves of the benefits we would reap whon those future cit­ izens take their place in society. Won't you consider this care­ fully, and won't you act according to the best interests of the students, and to the best interests of the community? S h o u ld K r a f t IB e C o n t i n u e d ? Should the draft be extended? As you most likely know the present draft law goes out of effect Juno 30• Do you think it should be extended? The world situation now looks to be in a critical sit­ uation. ’ If we were to drop the. draft now it might be a vital mis­ take. The draft new keeps ready a reserve of 2,900,000 mon. If this draft law was to go out of effect now it would sharply reduce this ready reserve which we now need. Would you drop it? Do you think the enlistments could keep up the reserve? Should it bo oca- t inued? TTh a n k s T o March 20, ~1959 u s d r i v e r s A large percentage of the students who attend school at LCHS are from regions out­ side 'of the city limits. These students usually ride buses to school and it Is tho busdrivors' responsi­ bility to see that they got hero safolyi As anyone can see, this is a big job. Ictf roads, noisy students, mudholes, and reckless drivers are only a few things they' have to put up with. Since this is such a big job we who ride the buses owe them a big thanks for transporting us to and from school safely,'for we apprec­ iate it. o n e s t IF o r ® u r 0 w n S a k e Why do we cheat? fs it because we like to? Don't we have a con­ science or is a con­ science just something we can turn on and off when it's most useful to us. We aren't bas­ ically dishonest, and after we got out of school we're never go­ ing to cheat'. Why cheat now then? Be­ sides ma/be the habit of cheating will be­ come so strong wo won't be able to stop? Let's bo honost^not for tho teachers sako- but for our personal satisfaction ' and peace of mind! The deadline for purchnsing 'an annual is March 23. The tohol cost of the Lincoln Lion is $3.50, All those wanting to make a down payment of $2 should' woo Garolino Docker, Iva Nelson, or Paulino Held. Anyone wishing to sponsor a page in the year book should 'con­ tact Janet Skolly, the t-ost Is $10 and an annual may 'bo' pur­ chased for $1.50.
