Did anyone wonder Tuesday
morning, September 23, why all
the Seniors came to school all
dressed up in their Sunday best?
They, had a good reason* they
were having their Senior pictures
The Seniors are always proud
of this day. The pictures are an
important factor of being a Sen-
ior. They are all mounted and
put in a frame and hung in
The Seniors will be getting
their handsome pictures in a-
bout three weeks or more. The

Then the Seniors will pick the
one out of the proofs that they

sics class that question, and I
doubt if they'll tell you to skin
them. (Some suggestion, huh?)
I'll tell you how you do it. You
get a tub, see—two tubs really,
and put Keith in one and Madi-
son in the other. Oh yes, and
you pour in some water! Oh,
it's too deep for me. Ask Madi-
so how to do it—he knows!
Will someone please tell me
how you get an egg out of a
milk bottle?? And for crying out
loud—how did it get in there in

mares, constantly) Now if that's
not a title—and I mean a TITLE

No, don't, I haven't the time.

feet were made for, huh girls?

other day Mr. Doughty pulled a
stinky on the 6th period Geome-
try class. And I do mean a stinky.
Everybody's noses began busily
sniffing the minute they walked

words, "Low and behold," Donna
pulled out several big slices
of . . . you guessed it . . . onion!!
