Included in the collection previewed from East are water color paintings, oils, poster paint selections and pencil and ink drawings. Each selection is to be judged and forwarded to Colorado Springs to be exhibited in a state-wide contest. Prizes in former years have been art scholarships to various state educational institutions. POSITIONS OF ALL CLASSES ISSUED TO ALL TEACHERS; FIRST DRILL PRAISED BY EAST AIR RAID WARDEN "We must be careful of sabotage at East in the event of an air raid," Carl Schweiger, air raid warden for East, said in assembly last week. "However, the building is fireproof, so damage resulting from fires will be small.*' Mr. Schweiger issued directions for Army Day Brings Holiday to Angels air raid drills to all teachers early last week. These directions are to be followed in drills and during actual raids on the city. "Pupils are to pass to hallways in the building, except the first floor lobby and the hall in front of the office, which contain too much glass for safety," Mr. Schweiger stated. "The central part of the auditorium is also to be used." The signal for a drill is the passing bell, which will be rung intermittently for two minutes. "If Denver is raided during lunch hour, pupils will pass to the positions they would take if they were in their fourth hour classes." The first drill at East was held Wednesday, March 18. Others will be held regularly, according to Mr. Schweiger. The first drill was very orderly and very successful. The students should be praised for their conduct during the drill," Mr. Schweiger said. Mr. Schweiger described four types of bombs to pupils last week. The first was the demolition bomb that explodes several seconds after it strikes a building or the ground. This serves the purpose of causing more damage when it explodes. The frag- i mentation bomb explodes immediately on hitting anything, and the incendiary bomb, made of magnesium, is designed to cause fires. "The gas bomb causes the most suffering and is very dangerous. However, this will probably not be used by the enemy, for fear of retaliation with the same," Mr. Schweiger said. In an official announcement from the School Administration Building Wednesday it was stated that Denver public schools would close at noon Monday, April 6. A gubernatorial proclamation designated April 6 as Army Day, and an official state-wide holiday in the afternoon.

"General good neighborliness should also be promoted among ' 'gh school students," she said. Lady Marley believes the British to be happier than the American youth because each one has a job to do and does it. "All British girls over 16 are engaged in defense work," she stated. "Those in rural districts help with the harvest and those in the city go to nursery schools where they learn to care for children. Th,.., ..ork in community panels while the mothers work in factories. One girl does all the washing, one does the mending, etc. The boys of that age study aviation and other technical subjects. I believe that before long, the American youth will be doing similar tasks." Rockwell Kent, noted American artist who, with Lady Marley, addressed an assembly in the City Auditorium for the "Allied Victory Rally," believes young people still have their I ideals, thanks to the inspiration of art. "War and art are inseparable," he stated. "Art is a way of saying things and no matter what happens, it will still live."

Mrs. Raymond Uaser, Mrs. Edward Fleck and Miss Stella Wilcox, were the judges chosen to determine who would receive the award. The medal was presented by Mrs. Fleck. Sally is a member of Minerva, Drama Club, White Jackets, Seraph Sisters and the National Honor Society. Prominent in dramatic activities at East, she has a lead in the Senior Class Play, "Our Town," which will be given in the auditorium April 17. "When I heard Mrs. Fleck announce me as the winner, I felt simply numb with excitement," said Sally. After the readings, students were entertained by a musical program. Wilma Pospisil, accompanied by Gertrude Adler, played a cornet solo. A "piano medley" by Morton Mann completed the program. "Mathematics in the World of Tomorrow" will be presented as the theme or the Fourth Annual Mathematics Exhibit when it opens at a double assembly, Wednesday, April 8. "The exhibit, sponsored by the Euclidian Club, will stress the applications of mathematics in a modern world," said Harry W. Charlesworth, sponsor of the club. "This becomes even more important as we look forward into a world of tomorrow." The exhibit will open April 8, with an assembly program, "House of Modern Magic," an electrical demonstration, which will be presented by the Public Service Company. The exhibit will remain open in the boys' gym until 4 o'clock that day. April 9 and 10, it will be open during the school day and in the evenings from 7 o'clock until 10:30.

The final day of the exhibit will be Saturday, April 11, when it will be open from 9 until 12 a. m., in order to accommodate members of the Colorado Education Association. —• "We wish to thank the business houses of Denver for their co-operation in helping us to present the Math Exhibit," Mr. Charlesworth said. Much of the equipment on display has been contributed by Denver businessmen. All of the displays have been prepared by the students of East. They may get the material from other sources, but it is arranged and explained by the students themselves. The Math Exhibit will be presented again June 29-31, for the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics. It will be open to the National Education Association at the same time. The first exhibit was given four years ago in the third floor hall. Last year there were so many exhibits that the exhibit was moved to the boys' gym. It is expected to be even larger this year.
