The Game's the thing!

The student seen rushing madly about the halls at 4 p.m. is most likely a booster worker. He'll labor long hours to help strengthen school spirit. Boosters, besides attending all important school functions, sell programs at games, put up elaborate dance and pep rally decorations, run exciting game nights, and yell with all their might at sports events. They really deserve the privileges they get.

The cabinet (in a variety of moods). Stevie Stiles, Bryer Chynoweth, Betty Slough, Margie Reeves, Ann Sommers, Janet Young, Elinor Bush, Peg Lemen, Joanne Rinker, Jean Berry, Carol Bottoms, Marilyn Lesh, Jack Brown, Roger McClure, and Larry Kettlehake.
