The Nell Simon play was ~droduced by the drama pertinent at Superior High School on Thursday and Friday nights last week before ~udiences that, were responsive ~o the antics going on on stage. The play opens with Speed (Cecil Smalley), Murray (Paul Joseph), Roy (Chad Nobles), Viflnie (Matt Sullivan) and Oscar Madison (Jim Bates) enjoying their weekly card game in the living room of Oscar's apartment, in New York City. The card game is interrupted repeatedly by concern voiced over the Speed (Cecil Smalley), Vinnie (portrayed by understudy Momca Shambaugh).

He outlifted the top two finishers in both the bench press and the dead lift but lost out of the champion title in the squats. The title went to Tim Hamill, McCock, the person who suffered a neck injury in the Superior-McCook football game this past season. Squats, bench press and dead lift are three lifting events in powerlifting contests. All lifters get only three attempts at each event so they have to estimate and reach as close to their maximum weight as they can on their third lift. It the lifter fails to lift the final weight, the last sucsssful lift is counted for the combined total.

The question is somewhat loaded. A year ago, both The Express and Flashlight carried st~'iea pertaining to teenage chinking and the effect it had on spring social activities at the school. At the time, the presence of empty beer cans and bottles in and around the school found following the Valentine dance had prompted Principal Larry Fuller to cancel all school social events for a time. The ban was lifted in time for the annual jnnier4enlor banquet and prom. Has the absence of any disciplinary action this year an indication that underage drinking has ceased to be a problem? Prohably not. The school students imrticiapted in a study released recently by the Nebraska Prevention Center for Alcohol and Drug Abuse which shows some rather interes ng statistics. The information, gathered in the spring of 1902, is based on a sampling of ap- proximatley 4,500 students in grades 7-12 from a random selection of 17 schools. The only schools excluded from the survey were Class I (K-8) and Class VII (state operated special) schools. In the sampling, 1,767 males and 1, 6 females came from homes where both parents are Present, 4,54 males and 443 females came from home with at~ one parent and 64 males 74 females came from homes without either parents. The greatest number of students participating in the survey were 15-18-year-olds with 861 males and 838 fenmles. Those 17-pins-years-old were the next high~t with 729 males and 660 females and 13-14-year- olds were third with 579 and 572 r~poctively. 138 males and 130 females from the 11-12-year-old category participated in the study. The greatest number of participants came from town and city areas, 1,672 males and 1,~ females. Farm population participants were 477 and 439 respectively. The survey showed that alcohol was clearly the drug choice. 89 percent of the males and 87.5 percent of females surveyed had used alcohol at some time in their lives. Within the last 12 months, 83.2 percent of the males and 81.1 percent d the females had used the alcohol and in the last 30 days prior to the survey, 64.7 percent of the males and 56.6 pecent of the females had drunk some form of beverage alcohol. The results of the survey showed the older the students were the moce likely they were to drink and to drink more of. ten. A "drink" for survey purposes was defined as a glass of wine, a shot glass of liquor, a bottle or can of beer, or a mixed drink. 201 of the males and 116 of the females surveyed had drunk on six or more occasions within the last 30 days. "InOn response to the question the occasions that you drink alcoholic beverages, how often to you drink enough to feel lretty high?" the majority of drinkers of all ages with the exception of the ll-12-year-olds have drunk to a "high" at least "a few times." The 17-years and older males report drinking to a "high" on half or more of their drinking occasions. Female response is a slightly lower, but not much. Another indication of the drinking patterns of high school students is gained by looking at the number of times young people have consumed five or more drinks in a row within the two weeks prior to the survey. The t oral proportion is less than SO percent for all ages and sexes with the exception of the 17- year-old males. But within that sampling, the percentage who consumed five or more drinks in a row is considerable. The 11-12 year olds, an percent of the had consumed least once while the females in bracket had 13-14-year-olds, the males and the females had the and 35.7 percent had done so. plus-year-olds, the males and the females had Do any of the the local school? difficult question since figures released for participating in assuming the School students can suggest the There are 186 females m Superior percentages of females that some time, months and days we find that and 137.4 femaleS alcohol at some males and 127.3 used it within 120.3 males and have used it days.
