    Counselors Direct Person al Relations Course

    The counseling department is

    directing a program, Adolescent Interest Arec;s, concerning person­ al attitudes and relationships about which students have ex­ pressed interest.

    The course, first of its kind to be offered on a large scale at Nor­ man High, is b~ing undertaken at the request of many students and because of the favorable com­ ments offered by twenty-nine stu­ dents involved in a, pilot stu d y course last year.

    Each counselor is responsible for co-ordinating two groups of about 30 students each. There are six groups in 'all; one each in first, third, fourth and fifth hours and two during sixth hour. A volun­ tary course, AlA is taken during

    students' free or study period.

    Classes Balanced The course is; a combination of

    lectures, films, question and an­ swer periods and group discussion. Each class is roughly balanced in the number of boys and girls and in the number of sophomores, juniors 'and seniors.

    The gueSit lecturers, who include doctors, psychiatrists, marriage counselors and social workers, will speak on six major fields, "Understanding Your Emotions," "Your Body: Understanding Its Needs and Functions," "Dating," "Marriage and Family Rela­ tions," "Understanding How to Handle Money" 'and "Building a Moral and Spiritual Code."

    Due to the fact that almost 500 students applied, many will have to wait until second semester to be enrolled. The participants for the first session were chosen at random from the applications re­ ceived.

    Permission Required "We are requesting that the

    parents of each young person tak­ ing the AlA course sign a permis­ sion slip and either attend a meet­ ing with the members of the guid­ [nce staff or speak to a counselor on the telephone. In this way we hope to alleviate any misunder­ standings about the nature of AlA that might occur," commented Mrs. Mar y Gatchel, guidance counselor.

    "If I can't be thankful that I'm a sophomore, I'll just be glad I'm not a turkey!"

    One Day A Year Sufficient? Thanksgiving Day is a peculiarity American holiday. It began

    over three hundred years ago when a hardy band of Pilgrims saw fit to thank Almighty God for the blessings bestowed on their struggl­ ing community.

    Now in 1965 we have much for which to be thankful. Our favored state is one of the finest places in which to live with abun­ dant food and comforts undreamed of fifty years ago. The bless­ ings of a free and excellent education are before us and it requires only our own effort to reap its benetits. Freedom to worship as we wish is ours, guaranteed to us because of our forefathers.

    No other nation in the entire history of the world has been so for­ tunate in having freedom of speech, of the press and of religion.

    Is it too much to expect that once each year there should be a day of public thanksgiving for the peace and prosperity granted us and for the blessings of home, school, church and friends?-Cynthia Huff (J1)
