S#Ail Vol. XXX, No. 8 DENVER, COLORADO, THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 17, 1944 Price, 10 Cents Two Planes Purchased -<!> The Father of His Country $45,862 Collected With 2 Days Left Final Results Will Be Announced in Assembly "EAST HAS GONE OVER THE TOP," said Mrs. Laura Baltes, chairman of the Fourth War Loan Drive. "We have now bought two planes and we're starting on our third, with a total of $45,862, and two more days to go," she said. "However, East has sold so far $40,862 in the buy-a-plane campaign." Final results of East's drive will be announced in assembly Monday after the sales are counted today and Friday. This will complete the series of assemblies presented by the stamp and bond committee. The largest bond sold here was bought by Elaine Johnson for the company with which her father is associated. It was a $5,000 bond, but of the G series, which does not count in the buy-a-plane campaign. The largest bond sold in the name of an East High pupil was that purchased by Field Benton, former business manager and sports editor of The Spotlight. It was a $1,500 bond. The next highest denomination bond sold here was a $1,275.50 bond bought by Alice Mariott. Among those who have bought bands each week are Carl Davis, Bradford Murphy and Maurice Oser. Mrs. Laura Croft, an alumna of the old East, bought a bond for each of her children through the school. A plate containing the inscription, "This plane was purchased by the pupils of East High School, Denver, Colo." will be placed in each of the three planes. Class of '47 Claims 240 Seraph Entrees TWO HUNDRED AND FORTY NEW ANGELS came to East on January 31 to try their wings at flying through three years of high school life, according to Miss Genevieve Francis, office clerk. Out of this mid-year group, which comprises seven home rooms, will emerge football stars, mathematical wizards, vocal and instrumental talent, editors of the Spotlight and Angelus, and perhaps the winner of the Honor Cup of the class of 1947. These students will be given an opportunity for representation in the school government through Gloria Melnick and Bob Swerer, ex-officio members of the Student Council elected in the General Education classes. These 10B members will have no voting power, however, as this is not provided for in the school constitution. Martha Moyer, former Smiley head girl, says, "The Seraph Sisters did a grand job of welcoming us at the little sister tea. Mrs. Anderson is a newfound friend to all of us and we look forward to having her guide us through our years at East." "East is giving me an opportunity to prepare for my chosen vocation as an engineer. I'm hoping to be on the basketball team, also like singing and am in the beginning a cappella choir," said Howard Bissell, ex-Govite. White Jackets appeals to Margaret Forth, head girl from Gove, who found it easy to get adjusted to life at East, and already is anxious to enter school activities. Bob Swerer was Morey's head boy, and now is starting out his career at East with a place on the Student Council. Bob is interested in going oat for football. Stanley Weir, head boy from Smiley, is attracted by football and basketball, plays the trumpet, and sums up his opinion of East thus: "It's swell !w The Father of His People
