A sample copy of a full-length test is available in every high school. Students who would like to have copies of additional tests may obtain them at cost from ACT. The ACT Assessment also includes a two-part questionnaire that students complete at home when they register. The questionnaire focus- es on the student's in- terests, academic and nonacademic accomplish- ments, and vocational and educational plans and needs. Colleges use informa- tion from the ACT Assessment Program for academic advising, ad- missions counseling. course sectioning and placement, student ser- vices, and institutional research. ACT Assess- ment reports are sent to students, their high school counselors, and only those institutions and agencies specifically designated by the student. -O- By Jennifer Gibson The Fellt>wship of "~ ~,un~ ScienLists starts ,~tt the t9~.i-,~5 year with new ~t[icer~, Stacey Grant, president; Shelly Woody, vice-president; Jan Burden, Secretary- Treasurer: and Jennifer Gibson, reporter.

Parental examples are the most significant ones that children ever know. These examples, we hope will include the importance of education and learning. It can help children greatly if parents can find time each day to read stories to them, examine books with them, and talk about their experiences in school. These kinds of activities are not only an expression of love, they are the best insurance you can provide that your child will become a good student. 3. Your child's teach- er will make an effort to have a conference with you in order to know both you and your child better. Parents are urged to make a similar effort to become acquainted with the teacher and the teacher's plans for your child. Above all, parents are encouraged to main- tain this contact with teachers throughout the year. Observing these points can help to make your child's early school ex- periences exciting and rewarding. We look for- ward to a partnership with you in the adven- ture. Sincerely, Superintendent of Schools When we think about it, much of what this let- ter says applies to all children and grade levels. We might think about this reality as the new year begins. As parents, we love our children. We worry about them. We want the best for them. That's why it's only logical that parents and educators develop good friendships and close working relation- ships. After all, both parents and educators want children to do well in school and in life. -s-Curtis G.

Prague held on to an early lead for a 7-0 win in a dogfight. After receiving the opening kick, the Demons failed to get anything going on of- fense and were forced to punt. Prague put togeth- er a soLid drive for the on- ly points of the game, as the Red Devil quarter- back Rafe Watkins scored from a yard out, with the extra point Prague led 7-0. In the second quarter Prage drove to the P-T 22 before Senior David Cypert picked off a pass at the five and returned it to the P-T 17 yard line. Demon junior quarter- back Greg Rose got the offense going by throw- ing a completion to Richard Warren for a 24-yard gain. Prague then stopped Perkins and forced a Demon punt. The Red Devils then drove to the P-T 21 where on fourth down tried an unsuccessful field goal try, to end the half Prague 7-0. P-T kicked off in the 3rd quarter and stopped Prague cold before get- ting some offense of their own going. Although the Demons couldn't get the ball much the fourth quarter, they held the highly regarded Red Devils for little gain. Sophomore Tony Ta- bor led the Demon ground attack with 17 yards, while senior Joe Hoover, last year's leading rusher, only managed 15. Rose had a 4-8 night with Senior Rex Branstetter hauling in 3 of them for 25 yards, and Warren grabbing the other. Defensively the Demons showed well. Cypert led the attack with 10 solo stops, 4 assists and 1 intercep- tion, followed by junior Scott Matheson with 8 unassisted and 3 assists. Hoover finished with 4 solos and 4 assists, and Warren had 4 solo and 3 assists. Second year head coach Greg Gorman com- mented, "The team played well enough on defense to win, especial- ly after the first quarter. In the future, we must put together a consistent attack so our defense doesn't have to be on the field quite so much. Our offense is our main con- cern at this time; we can't win if we continue to only get 70 total yards a game. "We are preparing for Meeker, they are a much improved team from a year ago. Even though they lost to Drumright 0-7 they had three touchdowns called back. Hopefully, we can move the ball on them and score some points. We must play well to win as both of us are still look- ing for the first victory."
