Parr Tours Berkeley At NASSF Conventio.n March 1-5, Larry Parr, principal of HHS, attended the annual NASSP convention in San Francisco, Calif. where he also visited a very interesting, but somewhat shocking, scene at Berkeley High School. The National Association of Secondary School Principals convention was attended by over 10,000 high school principals from all parts of the United States, as well as from other countries. The purpose of the convention was to discuss general problems in education and to make known international educational developments. The days were divided into morning and afternoon sessions each dealing with different subjects. The school representatives were allowed to tout" one of&apos; the surrounding high schools. Mr Parr, along with a group of about What did you say?! Take a listen around Harlan High, and you're sure to hear all sorts of weird word combinations. Each HItSer seems to have his or her own favorite conglomeration. Your ace Cyclone reporter has compiled, just for you, a list of some of the more expressive expressions. Jeff Cox has a thing about "and all that good stuff." A pleased John Feldman has been known to shout "whoopie-do!" Mr Nelson encourages the band kids to "Listen up now." Ann Christensen has a real winner in "on accounta cos . . ." Mr Trotter laments, "Terrible, terrible..." John Scott sometimes lets out with a "holy apple tree !" Mr Tamm provides a double treat, as he encourages his students to "hang in there tough," and urges them "onward." Ruth Wegner often agrees with an emphatic, "Well I guess!" Junior Craig Schomers protests with a tear- jerking, "Aw, golleee . . ." Shirley Thielen has a sexy way of saying, "O.K. Kiddies . . ." But perhaps the most famous punchline of all is voiced by Mr Schmid when he says, hun- dreds of times daily, "Everyone back to study hall." -- Laura Reinig. A delve into the past A glance through old copies of the "Cyclone" will turn up many surprises, one of the largest that although many things have really changed through the years, some things will always be the same. In the year '64-'65, the very original Cyclone staff came up with some choice titles for books. Ore of the less sickening ones was: I was A Teenage Sardine, by Ann Chovie. A look at today's paper will show you that the jokes haven't improved -- much. FIRST AFS'ER The '63264 school year had the distinction of being the first time HHS hosted an AFS student. She was Anna Sigala, from Athens, Greece. She was the first in a line of AFS'ers to come to Harlan, with the position now being held by Rosemarie Van Niekerk, from South Africa. Ask) in the '63-'64 school year, the Cyclone printed an article, saying that short skirts were slowly going out of style. Slander! How would fashion minded HHS'ers react to such a triatroous statement, now? Some things never change. In '61-'62, HHS was visited by a flu epidemic. Those old germs never die. This year, many students again missed school because of those mean old bugs. MORE BOYS Also, in the '61-'62 school year, the senior girls were begging for more boys. The situation hasn't changed much over the years. They are just as desperate as ever. People don't change much, either, as this little gem robbed from an early Cyclone shows: theysatlikethisuponaseat and had a little kiss then he said some darn fool thing and now they sit like ............. this ! Since 1959, inflation has hit HHS. Then, book rental was a small $3.00. Since then, it has in- creased to $6.00. In 1955 teeny boppers in HHS would have blown their minds on songs like "The Crazado", "Shotgun Boogie," "The Crazy Otto," and "Tweedly-dee.': We've come a long way since that year, with songs like "Band-shang-a-lang," and "Indian Giver." There are a few old standbys the students of HHS can always count on. One of these is Jim Noble. A large number of '69 seniors have had their senior portrates taken by the Skyline Studio, but he was taking school photos as far back as 1953. Another of these standbys is Mr Frazier. He 150, visited Berkeley High School. The high school in Berkeley, Calif. is located across from the university along the mainland side of San Francisco Bay. Berkeley is attended by about 3100 students. Mr Parr stated it to be "a very different situation," -- "pretty far out." During his stay he witnessed many very depressing sights, "students" - sockless, filthy, wearing grubby scraps of clothes with stringy hair. The teaching approach was fantastic, he said, with profanity not uncommon. Students entered and left classes upon will. Mr Parr asked questions of students in the halls and found a very interesting result. Despite the seemingly "free" situation at Berkeley, a big complaint by the student body is that of "not enough freedom." A general feeling also by the students is the unconcern for the future. Mr Parr asked one boy what he wanted to do, he replied, "I want to do my thing." Mr Parr also visited San Francisco College and Haite Ashbury which he stated as a "very depressing sights." By-anddarge, despite the very interesting events which he witnessed on the west coast, Mr Parr claimed that he's '7e G' The Heartbeat ml Harlan High School Harlan, Ia. 51537 L Vol. 28 March 17, 1969 Issue 9 The Harlen (Iowa) News-Advertiser Sights and Sounds The Beatles, Janis Joplin, Donovan, Jim Morrison and Jimi Hendrix were among the top winners today in EYE Magazine's first annual nation-wide Rock 'n' Poll. Some 6800 teen-agers in fifty states voted on ballots contained in the January issue of EYE.

The Top American Group was the Doors.

Antics in study hall In study hall there are many things to do. Rolling marbles is one activity which calls at- tention to you. Students like this because it causes excitement, and for some people it breaks the monotony of studying. Teachers do not like it, you Can tell, because they growl at you and take away your privileges. Coming to the study hall without books is another way to get into trouble. With no books you get bored and have to think of something to do. Sleeping is better than nothing, so away you go to dreamland. All goes well until you get caught and then there is no telling what will happen to you. If you are not tired, you can find something to do to cause a disturbance. As a last resort, you can study. If you cannot get a math problem, you whisper to your neigh- hers to see if they know the answer or can help you. When they cannot help you, you ask to speak to someone else. Another way to study is to study standing up. This you do after you get caught talking. -- Lauree Graves.
