On the eve of Earth Week, ecological issues, mainly pollution, dominate this edition. Representatives from the Anchor-Hocking and Owens-Illinois glass companies visited several classrooms to talk to students about an ordinance the students recently submitted to Worthington City Council, which would ban the sale of non-returnable beer and soft drink cans and bottles.
Another story discusses efforts by the school’s Ecology Club to collect paper and a similar drive by Perry Middle School students. Earth Week activities are also detailed on the front page. An accompanying photo encourages students to keep the school’s campus litter free. The only non-ecologically related article on the front page involves student efforts to have a smoking area established outside, near the school.
Inside, on page two, an editorial, punctuated by a photo of overflowing trash cans, suggests ways students can become activists in the “pollution war.” In a letter to the editor, a student points out the ephemeral nature of causes like Black Experience Week and Earth Week. Another letter reminds readers of the dangers of pulling a fire alarm in a non-emergency situation. A tongue-in-cheek piece about ways to identify Worthington High School seniors completes page two.
Page three features a poem and related photos and page four includes coverage of the school’s track, tennis and golf teams, plus photos from a recent baseball game.
