8-AI0ona (la.) Upper DM MoJim Tuesday, April 11, 1967 ACTION XTA.H.S. Coleen Collins Of West Bend Is Engaged THE JUNIORS got rid of their leftovers from the carnival last week. A two-day candy sale played a big role in the Class of '68's vital monetary additions. The prom is coming along fine and every little contribution to the effort is appreciated. - o - THE CARNIVAL was great I Most of the booths were out of prizes by six o'clock. Don't know which booth took in the most money .. . .bet the Cam era Club did all right on the coin toss. Just leave it to Wize Warner to come up with the surefire way to roll in the coins. Also, the sophs must have made a fortune in the basketball toss 1 I mean for 20? per try, and with all those misses .... But Jerry Hentges whipped it on 'em. He sank three in a row and won himself a pillow. Way to work, Hintch. - o - SYMPHONETTES GOT all slicked up and sang for the County Republicans last Tuesday. - o - TRACK CAPTAINS Bill Boldridge, Dean Teeter and Rich Black were elected by the squad as the Bulldogs wound up their pre-season practice last week. - o - THE SENIORS met Thursday to discuss class colors, motto, flower, will, and prophecy. It was decided, by an overwhelming majority, that the two shades of blue to be worn at graduation should also become honorary colors. As for a motto, several possibilities are being considered. How about "What, me worry ?" or "Play it by ear f A committee of Sandy Harmes, Lark Whittemore and Mary Willrett is looking into the matter of a motto. Barb Knudsen and Lark Whittemore make up the class flower committee. For the class prophecy, Sheri Baker, Sue Rentz, Bruce Ritchie, Chris Conn, Bob Farnham and Greg Belts volunteered to come up with something.

If you don't want to go, you must sit in study hall or get sick May 5th. - o - REPORT CARDS made the scene last Wednesday. General consensus was that if you're a senior and carry only four subjects, you came out ahead. BY ESTEBAN EVERYBODY'S GOT spring fever .... many have prom fever. The guys are losing a lot of sleep over preparation for asking the girls, and the gals are eagerly (frantically) awaiting those phone calls, etc. We probably should have held a computer prom this year to assure everyone of at least ONE companion April 22. Everything turns out all right in the end, right Kleinsie ? - o- LOOKING FOR a nice secluded spot to go on these wonderful spring nights ? After you finish your homework under the lights at the Dairy Queen, scope out the city dump. Hey, you can have a great time roasting marshmallows 1 You can enjoy the fragrant outdoors and be surrounded by all sorts of wildlife. Just an idea .... - o- CAPITOL JARGON: With the help of "Seventeen" and an avid reading friend of ours .... ROCK- cool person; CHOPPY- embarrassing; SANDBUG—anti- surfer; CHERRY TREE - to lie; MAROON - stupid person; GINCHY - great. Those were a few slang terms of 1966. If you don't usually go barefoot, then you must wear "skids" — not shoes. If you're hot 'n' bothered about something, you are obviously "up tight" .... all shook up. How do you maintain your cool ? Why, you simply "keep the faith, baby." - o- ' 'Wish that fairy godmother would show up with my prom date."
