FEBRUARY 12. 1942 PRICE TEN CENTS Four New Teachers Occupy Faculty Vacancies; 226 New Sophomores Added to East's Population School Registration Increased to 2679 Second Semester Don Blanchard Takes Office As President of Student Council THE NEW SOPHS have come to East 226 strong, enlarging the school population to 2,679. Being welcomed and getting acquainted rushed them through their first week; after the opening assembly Monday, signs in the halls put up by Miss Hero Conesny's art classes showed how the rooms were bered and helped them find classes. Wednesday, sixth period, the Student Council gave an assembly for them with Caryl Holter and Bud Stitt in charge. Bud, as master of ceremonies, introduced Don Blanchard, head boy, and other school officers who greeted the sophs and told them about the school; the last few minutes of the program were used for the lOB's to ask the council members questions they wanted answered about school activities, clubs and the queer odors on the third floor. Thursday in their general education classes, Angel Guides were sold to those who wanted to become more familiar with East and what the Angels do in the way of organizations and sports. One new soph, Harriet Latham, has already made lots of new friends, wants to join Clio, and likes the lunch room even though she has had to sit on the floor each day so far. George Main, who wants to join the Drama Club and go out for football, seemed to echo the sentiments of the other sophs when he told how they appreciated the way they were greeted by the school. "One of the best things the new students could realize," said Miss Mina. Murchison, Student Council co- sponsor, "is that they should forget they are from Gove, Morey or Smiley and remember that now they are all East Angels."

"When we thought of an orchestra, we thought of Pogey Stoner," said Mary Iris Day, head of the orchestra committee. "We remembered how well he had been received when he was here before, and we were sure he would be welcomed again." • Hearts To Be Theme Gloria Arfsten, when outlining plans for decorations, said: "We are going to put a valentine around the door so that when the couples enter the room they will step out of a heart. A false ceiling will be put up, and the theme of hearts will be carried out. We also want to put the orchestra in a candy box."

Dramatized by the Denver University Play Group, the presentation will be made up largely of fanciful music and clever dialogue, according to Miss Olga Cosgriff, who is in charge of ticket sales for the affair. Tickets will be on sale at the Denver Dry Goods Co. taught in Wisconsin for several years. "I intend to follow the plan set down by Mr. Brooks for •'. c 1C-12 year book," declared Mrs. Koons, 'and no changes will be made." Miss Marie Gunnison is a new commercial teacher at East, having come from Montrose, Colorado, where she taught commercial courses for a year and a half. Miss Gunnison was graduated from the Denver University School of Commerce, and previous to that lived and attended school in Denver. "I'm crazy about East," Miss Gunnison said. Mrs. Georgia Lee Sparks, an English teacher, was a supply teacher in Denver last semester, and before that taught one year in Steamboat Springs and one year at Adams City, Colo. "East students have a nice attitude, and the faculty is not only interesting but co-operative," were Mrs. Sparks' comments. Mrs. Florence Chiesa, who is taking Mr. Brooks' place in the English department, comes from Skinner Junior High, and was graduated from Barnard College, Columbia University. Ralph Korklin, who was at East last year, but taught at West High last semester, has been transferred back to East as a regular teacher.
