It was a fine building, possessing character and distinction. II lllll From Page 1 tributed more than money; they have given their time to oversee the improve- ments. Members of the Club have given interesting talks and lectures in our assembly programs; which have been enjoyed by the teachers and students. The Woman's Club has helped tO make possible the Diphtheria toxin and anti-toxin which was given to about 350 children in our school. This we con- sider one of the most bene- ficial things that could be done for us. Besides this, they have presented us with a beautiful, much- needed curtain for our stage, the cost of which was about $200.00. The Parent-Teachers' Association is doing splen- did work. One of the chief aims is to get a Domestic Science Department for our school. When this is accomplished our standing will be raised. This Association is trying to bring about a better under- standing between parents and teachers. We should like to men- tion others, too. There are lots of you who do not belong to any of the clubs named, but you have helped and done your part. Here's to St. Paul, it's a good town, it cooperates, it is progressive,, it is loyal. Thanks Civitans! Thanks Woman's Club! Thanks P.T.A.I And all that have helped our school push for- ward. ooo The mention of diphthe- ria in the Hi-Lights is sig- nificant. This highly-conta- gious disease, once referred to as "membra- nous croup," has been vir- tually eliminated today thanks to widespread immunization. Years ago it was greatly feared due to the suffering experienced by its victims. In the most extreme cases, infected persons would suffocate due to airway obstruction unless an emergency tra- cheotomy could be per- formed. Before reading this arti- cle I had no idea a chapter of the Civitan Club had ever existed in St. Paul. Then as now, the goal of ANYWHERE - ANYTIME " Reasonable Rates on Transportation See -" - " . H OLD FLEMING or JOE LARGE Headquarters Western Front PAIGE AND NASH CARS I this organization was to promote better citizenship through altruistic volunteer community service. To further this goal, Civitans supported programs which benefited sick and orphaned children as well as military veterans. They also took part in communi- ty improvement projects such as voter registration and crime reduction. Today the organization's primary focus is to help children with developmen- tal disabilities. Another article from the Hi-Lights details the histo- ry of the 1928 senior class of St. Paul High School. +ooo The Senior Class started out in the seventh grade in 1923 with twenty-one members. Only twelve of that number went on to the eighth grade. Charles Williams and Fred Cheek passed to the eighth, but failed to continue their work. Walter Thompson moved away to another school. In the eighth grade the following members joined us: Elizabeth Cunningham, Ruth Patrick, Maxie Tate, and Harry Morris. Madge Ray joined us the same year at the sec- ond term. This made a total of fif- teen members, but during the year Harry Morris chose the field of experi- ence and departed from us. Two other members left us, too. Elsie Minnich chose matrimony in preference to remaining with us to finish the struggle. At the end of that year, only eight of us were pro- moted to the ninth grade. At the beginning of the Junior year we added two new members to our class, Harold Jessee and Maude Bradley. Maxie Tate left us here, leaving only seven who now compose the Senior Class of 1927-28 Class Officers Seniors-- President - Madge Ray Vice-president - Theodore Jessee Secretary-treasurer - Harold Jessee Juniors---- President - John Smith Vice-president - Frank Ramsey Secretary-Treasurer - Charles Cunningham Freshmen-- President - Henrietta Cox Vice-president - Hubert Fletcher Secretary-treasurer' - Roffe Morris Alumni News Class of 1926-27 Victor Molinary and Fred BoRon are now attending college at V.

DANTE LIVES ON-The Dante Lives On Board meets at 6:00 pm 3rd Tuesdays at the Dante Museum with the Community Meeting follow- ing at 7:00 pm. "Ma'am, you have an urgent problem with your computer. This is Microsoft calling." "Oh, my, well, what do I do? How can I fix it?" "That's why we are call- ing today..You have nothing to worry about. We're here to help." While it may sound like the world's best customer service, this is not Microsoft calling, there's most likely nothing wrong with your computer, and you're about to have a much bigger prob- lem on your hands. A computer repair scare is once again hitting Western Virginia consumers (and their hard drives) in a scheme to steal hundreds to thousands of dollars and per- sonal information. Multiple consumers have told the BBB in Western VA that they have been contact- ed by a computer technician claiming to work for Microsoft or a similar sounding computer compa- nY. Consumers are then told that their computer either has operating problems, viruses, or other issues that need immediate attention. The BBB fh'st reported on this scam in March 2013. Microsoft has no connec- tion with these calls and will not call your home to offer virus protection. These calls are aimed at gaining remote access to your computer and collecting exorbitant fees for their services. According to Microsoft, after gaining access to the computer, these callers can then install malicious soft- ware, steal personal infor- marion, take control of the computer remotely or direct consumers to fraudulent websites where they are asked to enter their credit card information. Microsoft's Online Safety and Security Center states that neither Microsoft nor its partners make unso- licited phone calls. The caller may make the following claims to appear legitimate: -- Your computer is infected with a virus and it has 'somehow' reported that fact to the technical support company. -- Your computer is infected with a virus and it is sending out spain emails to people. -- Your computer is 'somehow' reporting critical software or hardware errors to the technical support company, or sending out error messages, and it is in imminent danger of break- ing or failing. -- Your Windows Operating System is Corrupt- ed and about to fail. "Always be wary of cold- calls," says Julie Wheeler, president and C.E.O. of BBB in Western VA. "Never grant computer access or provide personal informa- tion to someone you don't know. If they claim there is a security threat to your com- puter, hang up and call your computer company direct- ly." BBB provides these rips: -- Never grant remote access to your computer to unknown parties. Scammers will ask you to go to your computer in order to access the problem and grant them access. Ignore their instruc- tions. In order to get access they may ask you to enter in codes, instruct you to enter connection data into a form, request that you remove fire- walls and other security measures, or ask you for other computer locating information. -- Install a firewall and anti-virus program to protect your computer and personal information. Update these programs frequently. -- Update your operating system and web browser software regularly. -- Protect your passwords by keeping them in a safe place. Create different pass- words for each online account that you have. -- Never give personal or financial information to unsolicited callers. -- Contact your service provider directly if you are concerned you may be exposed to viruses or other security threats. -- Do not open or respond to emails or click links from unknown senders; this might infect your computer with malware, or confirm that a spammer has reached a valid address. -- Find acomputer repair company you can trust.
