4-The Perkins Journal Thursday, September 15, 1977 (, Perkins. T ryon tudents assigned smoking area BY Dena Kirby A student council meeting was held Wednesday, Sept. 7. Among the topics on the agenda were the pre-game ceremony, Old Settlers' Day, football homecoming, and the smoking area. The student council is responsible for the invoca- tion and flag raising cere- mony before the football game this year. A float will represent the council in the Old Settlers' Day parade. The council will also run two game booths that day. Plans are being made for the homecoming football game. They will also sponsor the homecoming dance featuring a li; band. The Third Annual Punt, Pass and Kick Contest will be held on September 29. Other details will be announced at a later date. A smoking area was approved and was desig- nated as the yard behind the Home Ec cottage. Please help keep this'place clean. If we abuse our privileges, we lose them.

Homecoming Queen candidates are announced at Pep Rally Friday A combination of spir- ited yells led by the cheer leaders and pep club, band music, skits, and speeches created much enthusiasm before the first home football game with Depew Friday. Highlight of the rally was the announcement by Coach Mcllvain of the choices by each class of homecoming queen candidates. Sopho- more footballers selected Sherry Foster, Juniors chose Anita Pricer, and the Senior boys' nominee was Ginger Sadler. Students left the rally and drove away in well-decorated cars which kept the "winn- ing spirit" rolling. Later, at the game the cheer leaders presented each parent of a player with a "football" identification symbol. New football pro- grams which featured adver- tisements by business fans of the Demons were also distributed to all those who attended the game. Gossip! Hey, Mark Grant, what's this we hear about you running out of gas on a country road last Saturday afternoon?! I guess C.B. radios spread the news. What's this we hear about two boys asking Janene Breeden for a date in the same day!! Could it have been the Fields? Steve A., Why do you always write we-he on your paper in Biology class? Who's starting a scrap book about a certain person? Could Debbie Calvin know?? Who had to move a tree before she could park? Would Mrs. Bostian know?? [ Who's the apple in Carl Barber's eye? Would Belinda Crumrine know??!ll Could this be puppy love, Carol Dry and Ronnie Lomenick?? Why is Donnie J. always chasing freshman boys? ?t I Dear Jerry S: It's common to have an identical twin. Who is this junior boy who seems to be spending some of his time in Guthrie? Allan W., what's so attractive about Guthrie? ? What about a new romance sparking in the bandroom? Would T. H. know about it?? ! ! Who got embarrassed in Home Ec III last hour yesterday when she kept snorting out loud? What was the matter, Treva? Who got caught talking in Mr. Strain's Math class? Ronnie Lomenick, you better he more careful![ SILLY SAYINGS Girl who lives in glass house should dress in basement. Beware of a thing of beauty; she has usually been made over. , A ring on the hand is worth ten on the phone. Walk a mile in my shoes, but buy me another pair. My phone number is 638-4301. Money won't buy happi- ness; see if you eaneharge it. Opportunity is at your door, but your mother won't let him in. All that spark!es is not champagne; some of it is club soda. A beautiful wcman will enter your life; I'll be over tomorrow. There are plenty of fish in the ocean, but are there any guys? Find yourself; buy a flashlight.

Taylor raises his baton and the Demon Marching Band prepares to begin their first march of the season at the game with Depew Friday night. Demon band gets ready for contest season At the game with Depew last Friday night, things not only went well for our outstanding football team, but things went well for the band, too. Considering that we only had a week to put together that show, I am sure we would all confess to making some mistakes. We should have an outstanding show by contest time. Mr. Taylor says, "Our sound is really good and powerful this year. We should be able to blow some bands off the field. Now, if we could only get in step!!!" He also said that there are no rooki's after the first game. We now have nearly 60 seasoned veterans. We are slowly building for our contest at Ponca City. Starting on Labor Day we began to fit the first part together. Thus, we learned why it is called Labor Day (Boy, did we labor!). We marched part of it at the Depew game after six hours total marching. The week of the 12th through the 16th we will be preparing the next Second Grade step, to be added to what we already have down. This we will march at the Prague game Friday, September 16th. Our show is being built much as the skilled mason builds a wall, laying each brick in place carefully, then making sure it is properly reinforced. He knows that it can't be done all at once, lest it will all tumble in ruin. All his work is for naught. Patience and support will build that wall. Patience we have; and'with your support we will build that wall -- that wall that will seperate from all other bands. In the Bible it states I cast my bread upon water it will be fruitful return seven fold. everybody in the casting their bread, why, sea is plumb full of loaves of bread. Well, signing off until week. Until then, health and the Force be you. See ya at the Prague Friday. by Tommy Hu Bobby Reynolds Jean Platt Meet Your Faculty by Anita Allen "I am very impressed with the Perkins-Tryon Student Body," smiled Mrs. Jean Platt, new English and Spanish teacher at P-'I High. "They are most friendly and cooperative." This is high praise from Mrs. Platt who, although she is a first year teacher here, has taught in Lawton, North-East Oklahoma City, Kerr, and Midwest City High. Mrs. Platt and her husband recently bought a farm near Tryon, and Mrs. Platt immediately started substitute teaching here. The Platts have three children, all of whom are out of school. Gardening, bowling, and golfing are Mrs. Platt's hobbies. Mrs. Piatt is a member of the OEA, NEA, PT-CTA, and OFLTA in which she held several offices including president. She was also elected District Chairman of the Oklahoma City Unit of OEA. We welcome Mrs. Platt to our system and hope that her high opinion of our school will continue throughout her career in our school. "0" We have 26 students in our second grade class this year.
