THE TALK
of
SOUTHSIDE
By PAUL SCHMIDT
South Side holds something for
its old students which the rest of
the world seems to lack. Each year
we have a number of pupils back
for a post graduate course, not
always because they need it, but
sometimes they just can't seem ~o
teal' themselves away from their
deal' alma mater. Some come back
for sports, and there .a r e some ~ho
never leave the senior class Just
because they wouldn't know what
to do if they did. Most of them
return for the teams, the clubs, the
general social life of our school,
and a little more of Mrs. Gurth's
potato salad.
P.S. Those extra credits never
harm anyone.
Bob Walker opened his and our
first assembly last Wednesday, and
he did an excellent job. Our principal,
Mr. Wohlsen, gave one. ?f
his best speeches on school spirit,
containing many helpful suggestions
presented in an interesting
manner. Mr. Watson then gave a
fine talk, of which the main thought
was you only get out of a thing
what you put into it. The band
opened and closed the assembly
with a brisk, well executed march.
If we were to have a prettiest
girl of the week, the honor would
probably bestow itself on Carolyn
ross, but there are so many
beautiful girls in South Side we
will not venture to stick our necks
out with our choice.
The football team i shaping up
well for the opener on October 5,
One must not forget, no matter
how many games we win or lose,
the boys did their best. We corne
up against some mighty husky
teams with ' plenty of substitutes
this year, and comparing them
with South Side's squad, which
isn't overflowing with replace-]
ments, it's no joke. Billy Mills is
the biggest man in the Cyclone's
backfield, and he .is no giant. Our
line is a bit heavier this year
though, especially in the center. If
Treadwell Schmitt ever ' makes up
his mind to it, no one can move
him, much less run a play through
him. A week from tomorrow we
play East Rockavvay on their field.
'The team deserves all the support
we can give them, so let's all turn
out.
We're glad to see you're still
reading this column after last
week. We apologize. . . Big Rill
Kreger is losing weight steadily.
