Who could forget core classes or white socks 0 The eighth grade brought new memories and more good times. Memorization of the Maryland poem and all the fun in Mr. Gate's modern art class were some outstanding highlights, plus Mar Lu Ridge for a small part of us The state requirements for graduation were changed This was the year for a new phys. ed. teacher, Mr. Fearnow Our attire fit the mood, wildly patterned stockings, pinstriped shirts, and madras clothing. New subjects greeted us in the ninth grade Well remembered are Latin and Spanish. Among more vivid memories are Mr. Frushour resigning as principal, Mr. Patton, Mrs Cruther and her crow, a class trip to the churches of Washington, D.C , and the movie, "Doctor Zhivago'.. With the tenth grade the pattering of feet became less distinct Sophomores were not in any big hurry to get to team teaching or any other class, especially since there were no bells Once there, entertainment was supplied in the form of such inventive songs as "Martin Luther" and "The Carnival Song". Throwing soap in the locker room at Boonsboro provided an interesting break in the dull run of things for a few of our more active sophomores. While we were demons on the highway, we were inventive on the home front, "The Wizard of Face", a new comedy farce written by some of our talented members, and the word skag plus other inventive terms were firsts at MHS. Louis Nicholson and Ricardo Cirese were visitors to our school from Argentina and we welcomed our new principal, Mr. Stroup. Free periods were spent in leisure or studying. As juniors, we were busy with "April Showers", the junior class dance; a mock election; squirting water in Chemistryclass: getting class rings; and studying Algebra II, Chemistry, and U S History in our spare time The soccer team, with some of our classmates as starters, were district champs. Famous actors were among us including Yul Bryner. "Tara" our junior prom, was the highlight of the year for all of us and we are all grateful to Mr. Phillips for his valiant efforts in the field of "dates for May 23". Egg battles in which juniors were victorious and thwarting senior pranks were a great part of the year's favorite past times As seniors our final year was. of course, the greatest. We spent our summer evenings at the newly formed teen center and our school days on the new schedule of A and B days. Our band received new uniforms and sported them proudlj in the Festn al of States at Florida We worked hard, taught dutifully, and had a lot of fun during Senior Das. We signed yearbooks and supported our teams at MHS on the field of battle. We presented a class play. "Our Girls . never to be n\ aled We were given a prom called "Deep Blue Sea." We pulled senior pranks and had egg battles We studied and we had fun But as we studied and had fun. we were always aware of current events happening around us As se\enth graders we listened to the presidential election. As sophomores we were shocked at Martin Luther King's death and also that of Robert Kenned\ In our senior year, we became more involved in \ietnam. Cambodia, and the Far East The conflict hit a little closer to home as our boys turned eighteen The racial strife, an ever present thorn in American societj 's side, became more violent and college campuses were the scene of chaos and disorder. Always present was the controversial drug conflict We lived through the breathtaking events ol the Apollo 13 flight to the moon and joined hearts in prayer with others to ask for their safe return. The time is June 8. 1970. The class is the same thundering herd that entered here in September, 196-*. But there is a change We are no longer kids, playing games, but men and women calml walking into the future. There will always be memories of MHS and the good ole days. We will treasure them fondly. We march, we walk across the stage, \ve : ece:vc our diplomas and say goodbye to MHS. Tomorrow is forever The future is now ours. SFAFLRI fcWSPAPER
