A brave group of people led the senior high students, who had a copy of the words, In singing three popular folk songs. They were accompanied by guitar and piano. The Idea is for people to "get rid of the chicken in you and lose your Inhibitions" in the words of the assistant principal, Eric Bailey. Most people like to sing: after all everyone sings in the shower! that everycitizen of the United States should know what America Is, where It Is headed today and, most Important, where is should be headed. If you and I, as Americans, do not do our own thinking and acting to chart this nation's course, you can be sure someone will do it for us. Don't let anyone but yourself decide your future." Any person, student or faculty member, Interested In bettering the school may put suggestions In the suggestion box which is at the Trading Post. Don't think that they won't be considered. They will. Even crank suggestions will be considered foolish.. A few people didn't take the writer's advice about getting plenty of sleep the night before the PSAT including the writer. When they get the results of the test they will see if they should have shown their school spirit by going to the game with Clewiston or not. - The ones who didn't show school spirit, but scholastic spirit Instead, last Friday can show extra school spirit this Friday by going to the away game with Belle Glade. affairs. The following excetpt from Will Elliott's speech shows that he is so inspired and would like to arouse others' interest: "I believe you will agree By DONNA DAY RIVIERA BEACH - The students of Riviera Beach High School raised over 60 per cent of the needed .'i.UtHI in their first week of the 18 track drive.

The subject of the film was narcotics such as marijuana and heroin. After the students had seen the movie they had an opportunity to ask questions of a guest panel. Much knowledge was gained. Wasn't last Saturday night absolutely fabulous? If you don't know what I'm talking about, then you're not a Gator fan. This was the night that we saw Seacrest's lunior varsity massacred by a score of 27 0. Pretty great, right? That makes four straight wins since our one and only loss. (Including the games to come! t Does anybody know why some people attend our games If those same people aren't going to bother supporting our team? Do you know how depressing It Is to be giving our all and trying your hardest and to not be receiving any support from your classmates? Many members of the football squad have complained about the lack of student enthusiasm and support. Come on, Gators! We know you can yell loud enough for the team to be hearing more than Just the loud speaker. So. Let's hear It this week! Make the team and cheerleaders proud of YOU! This Friday night, the Palm Beach Gardens High School Varsity will clash with tlv Boca Raton Bobcats. This game is an away game played at Boca's field. Because this game is also Boca's hoineco ming, the opposing team is ex pecting a large turnout. As Its first project, the Student Council has decided to sponsor buses to the game. The junior class has dial longed the rest of the school in seeing who can fill their bus the fastest. The price for the bus trip Is $1.50. By taking the bus down to Boca, you'll not only have lots of fun, but at the same time you'll be supporting your class, the student council and, of course, the team. The spooks and goblins are out tonight in all shapes and sizes, but there Is very little to fear from these little ghouls. Even harmless pranks are traditional for Halloween but this is very little excuse for destructive vandalism. No matter what the date Is, destroying property Is against the law. Keep this in mind as you go out to have your "fun." Also don't forget about the Halloween curfew hour; this won't be so easy to lie your way out of as arriving late for class.
