Tryon Ill I l l II i These three excited football queen candidates check out the past P-T football coronations in preparation for Homecom- ing '77. From left to right Sherrie Foner, Ginger Sadler, and Anita Pricer. Homecoming Queen is Chosen by Sue Grimes When Ginger Sadler, daughter of Jerry and Doris Sadler of Perkins, was told she had been chosen Homecoming Queen of 1977. 78, she happily replied, with a big smile, "I can't believe itf I never dreamed of being Queen1" Ginger laughed when asked if her family was excited about her being picked as Queen. "I thought I was going to scream before I got to tell them because without their support in all my activities and without the blessing of the Lord, it never would have been possible." Ginger, a senior, has attended Perkins.Tryon School all her life. She intends to enter OSU after graduation. "I want to major in elementary education; I really want to teach third grade," .mused Ginger. Ginger has been active in inany school organizations. She has been cheerleader for six years, and head cheer. leader her Junior and Senior years. She has been in FHA four years and song and game leader for two years, in pep club for six years, on the high school basketball team, and a class officer her Junior and Senior years. One of Ginger's main interests is reaching out and helping other people. "I feel very honored to be chosen by such a great football team. I can't waitl I'm still so happy I'm not even nervous yet. 1 hope there's a big turnout to see the Demons beat Daven. port!" bubbled our Queen- in-waiting. Anita Pricer JUNIOR ATTENDANT Anita Pricer, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John Pricer, was shocked when she heard she was going to be the Junior 1977 Demon football attendant.

Some of Anita's favorites are spaghetti, the color red, and her favorite movies are iff. ][D, and __.QXsI.-JJ tl e:r:r. Anita is the junoir class secretary and a member of the yearbook staff. She also is on the girls' basketball team. Anita plans to go to beauty school after she graduates next year. When asked about her dress for the coronation, Anita excitedly said, "It is black and white with chiffon like sleeves and streamers down the front." Anita's happiest moment was when she found out that she was going to be the junior queen attendant. One of her most embarrassing moments was when she was trying to ride a skateboard and fell down right in front of the Rec Hall. Anita says, "Thanks all you football guys for giving me a great honor and good luck to a GREAT football team. by Jeff Brown Smoking area is still in the planning stage Sherrie Foster SOPHOMORE ATTENDANT This year's sophomore candidate is Sherri Foster, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Duane Foster.

Juniors Sell magazines by Tracy Cundiff The Junior Class is selling magazine subscriptions as a fund raising project to help with the expenses of the Junior-Senior Banquet and Prom. This project is one which is done every year by the Juniors and is usually very successful. On Thursday, September 15, Mr. Allen Butler came to the High School to talk to the Juniors and explain how the fund raising project works and give helpful sales tips. The Junior class will be selling subscriptions to 234 different kinds of magazines. With such a large variety, we should be able to please everyone. The sale will go on until October 3, which is only a little over 2 weeks away. Please plan to support the Juniors with their project by renewing your subscription or buying new ones. Thank you.

HS Football- HOMECOMING The P-T cheerleaders and bench add their spirit to the game, as the Demons' hope for a victory slowly disappears. Band present and prepar by Tommy Hughes and Bob Reynolds alias Woodward and Bernstein Everything went well at the Old Settlers' Day Celebration as most of the bystanders were surprised to see two strange bands pounding the pavement. For those of you in the dark, those other bands were Shilder and Sand Springs. How did it go? To begin with, some people came from a couple of blocks while some had to come from S miles out and more. We met at the band room at 3:30 and milled around until 3:45, at which time we walked to French Street and on to Main Street. Half the band went on to Chantry, but were easily corrected. Then we stood around in our black woolen sweat suits before stepping off to the beat of "Fin- landia", marching less than the distance to the band room ! donna Bostian wins the medal for the missing music--it's surprising how much you can learn so quick when you lose your music during a parade and can't pick it up. "Maybe it won't be this hot at the OSU Homecoming," Mr. Taylor, world renowned band direc- tor, is quoted as being quoted. At the Prague game we marched our "half-time show" before the game because it was their home- coming. But this left us free to yell our throats hoarse at the halftime, as we led 14-12. Because the Screamin' Demon Stage Band won state over Prague, they were out to get us. The rivalry between bands is harder to judge than between football teams, so we can only rely on what fans say for reassur- ance. But the band could not have been more behind the team last Friday night at Prague. While we may have tied them in total sound, our balance and style were vastly superior. A lot of credit is due the Perkins crowd as they voiced their Pride and Support to the team. Many seemed rather to want to voice opinions of the referees. We'll skip over that, though. We should be doing a great injustice to a multitude if we didn't talk about the sideline coaches; those who know what should have been done, when it should have been done, how they should have gone about it(after it already had been done, of course). But no game is without the support of all those above mentioned, as well as the pep club, cheerleaders, team, coaches, and referees. Many people get mad because of missed calls and bad calls of referees. They're only human, and are bound by heredity to make mis- takes. Coaches are the same. They make many good decisions, but are only remembered for the bad ones they make. Everything they do is for a reason. You can't say "They" did it. "They" only refers to the opposing teams. Everything done, good or bad, is for the team, for "us" or "we". "We" win games. Cleodis Foozle can't make a touch- down without 10 other guys out there to help him. If he played against l l opposing players, I could tell you who would win. We might also add that Myron Reynolds is the Band Voice at the ball game, the great Guru does not an- nounce us. We have only one band member in football -- Tim Hallman. Go, Tim, Gel See you next Friday against Yale. D D Hise believes we can win as she the action at Prague.

For those not familiar with the situation some of the background information might be appro- priate. In past years the school has had a policy of prohibiting smoking on campus. This has resulted in several students smoking on private property adjacent to the school grounds as well as this recommendation had smoking in the schet--On the approval of the restreoms, studeat council and will be The student council has presented to the admini. suggested that the area stration and Board of behind the Hol .E, ,Edecation at the be dsigna'ted ,,, ,, meeting, next smoking area and is request. ing approval of the admini- stration and Board of Education.
