Aileen Perluss, Dorothy Scott, Ralph Trejo, Maxine Carson EDITORIAL That we are inlitative by nature is a fact we nmst take into considera- tion. We imitate consciously and un- consciously. D.oing the right thing in front of yonngsters goes a long way towards preventing them from wrong- doing. For example: if a young per- sun from the grades sees a senior running up the stairs, he is inclined to follow in his footsteps, even if he has beeu warned before not to do so. Crowding the hallway is another com- mon practice seen in Avalon High School. If the youngsters see older people breaking the rules, they are apt to form bad habits• It's up to the older stmtents to set good examples. --Lnis Marin. A. H,$. Hockey practice will begin Monday after school• next DID YOU EVER STOP TO THINK Your home town newspaper is your school's best friend, It gives your school events and ath- letic contests columns of news stories and publicity. It champions your school improve- nlent programs and bond elections. It is a sizeable taxpayer in your eonnnunity. On its staff and in its mechanical roonls you will find home-owners and taxpayers.
