For Annual
SPC Picnic
The annual St. Philip’s picnic,
sponsored by the Student Council,
will be held Thursday, April 30. No
classes will be conducted during
the day so that students will be
able to take advantage of the pic-
nic. It will be held at Mission
County Park, located off of South
Presa Street, and will last from
9 A.M. until 3 P.M.
Lunch will be served, consisting
of roast beef or sausage and bev-
erage. The Student Council has
suggested that, students bring with
them to the picnic their chess
games, cards, checkers, balls, ra-
dios, or whatever they would like
to do.
Students will be admitted by stu-
dent I.D. cards only. Students who
have lost their I.D. cards should
contact the Business Office for a
new one. This year guests will be
permitted to attend the picnic by
prior arrangement with the Stu-
dent Council and payment of a fee.
Yearbook Nears
The yearbook staff, with Jesse
Gonzales as editor and Mr. J. B.
Williams as faculty sponsor, an-
nounced the yearbook will be avail-
able by May.
The Yearbook is a student pub-
lication, as such should be pub-
lished by students under supervi-
sion. We hope that students will
volunteer during this spring sem-
ester to help plan and execute next
year’s publication.
On February 28th at the Grocs National Bank, the decorating and
sound consultants for the floats which will appear in the annual King’s
River Parade met to discuss this year’s fiesta plans.
Once again St. Philip’s College will participate in this parade, which
is one of the highlights of Fiesta Week. This year the River Parade
will take place on April 20th. The tentative title for the school’s
float this year is “Age of Happiness” and will feature a rainbow,
flowers and other colorful decorations, as designed by the special con-
sultants. It has been suggested that three St. Philip’s “lovelies” ride
the float, along with a combo or small band from the school.
The final decisions and choices will be made by the members of
the school’s float committee, including Miss Kathryn Walker, Mrs.
Aurona Hernandez, Mr. Levi Jackson, Mr. James Crockett and Mr.
Everett Turbon.
St. Philip’s entry in the King’s River Parade in 1969 featured Miss
St. Philip’s, Annette Washington, Eleanor Biser, and a four man combo
including Aaron Waiters, Carlos Lopez, Tony Jimenez and William
Brown. That float won honorable mention in last year’s parade.
