Rohwer Hi-Lites high school newspaper

Densho has some of the issues of the paper. What I will do here primarily is just point out anything I think is of considerable interest. As with any high school paper, these will have articles on sports, specific students, things about specific teachers, editorials, etc.

Volume 6 #1, February 2, 1945

The first issue is 8 pages long. Dillon Myer gave a talk to the juniors and seniors. There's one whole page on airplanes, and a page of cartoons.

Volume 6 #2, February 14, 1945

The same types of things as in the first issue. This one is six pages long.

Volume 6 #3, March 2, 1945

A letter to the editor talks about some vandalism at the school. This issue is also six pages long.
