/[ OE THE CUBA FREE VOLUME 1 - NUMBER 37 CUBA. MISSOUR! BASE BALL-SO FTBALL SEASON TO OPEN MONDAY MAY 15 70 Baseball Stars Sign Up Monday To Play This Summer The Cuba Athletic Association met Thursday night and among other things, set the staarting date for the baseball, softball season Monday night, May 15th. The games Monday night will be softball and Tuesday night, 1Rtle league baseball m two games. Boys that wanted to play in the Little League and PeeWee League were asked to sign up Saturday morning About 70 boys were there and more are expected to sign this week. The association was surprised to find that instead of four softball teams theyhad five that wanted to play, and so the schedule will be made to include all five. This, with the intermediates yet to sign will probably make around 150 player participating in the games this summer. It may seem strange to some, but what we really need is another lighted ball lrk, since there doesn't seem to be enough nights for everybody to get a chance to play, and the mem- bers to have one night a week off. Little League players will be divided into four teams, and PeeWees into two teams. T, he association hopes that the increase in interest among the players will also create more interesst among the farts and attendance will be better. The whole program depends on at- tendance.

Graduation Almost every year we ercb-ur ter pupils and patrons with very serious questions as to the re- quirements for graduation. These requirements are ve'y definitely established byy he State of Missouri and no local school has the power to changd them. Every year when the-stu- dents enroll they are advised as to the requirements they must meet and are enrolled in same. Then as seniors they are given" sspecial guidance in enrolling by the high school principal. Even with all these precaut- ions we very Often find some senior come up to time for grad- uation lacking one-half or one unit of required work due to failure in some subject which they have not made up. Responsibility for these must be taken by the students as they are always enrolled in these made-up classes. Any student not meeting full requirements cannot and will be graduated. Awarding of scholarships Scholarships will be awarded at the Honor Awards Assembly to be held at 10.00 A. M., Fri- day Mayy 19.
