An excited crowd of Demons with a lot of pride, a band, and a police car escort snake dance down main Street Thursday afternoon to get Perkins fired up for homecoming. Bonfire lights Homecoming Spirits Immediately following the Punt, Pass and Kick Contest, Thursday night, the cheer- leaders sponsored a bonfire down by the football field. Cheers and songs got everyone spirited, and the band provided music for those who wanted to do a snake dance around the fire. Thanks to the fire depart- ment for having a fire engine present as a precaution. Fortunately it did not have to be used. Those present really got "fired up" for the game which proved to be a 28-12 win over our traditional rivals, the Davenport Bull- dogs. by Tracey Cundiff -0- Scott Pace and Gary Gray are two of the demons attending the pre-game bonfire. Homecoming Dance After the big winning of the homecoming football game a homecoming dance was given by the Student Council from 10 p.m. to 12:30. The music was by the "Monarch Band" from Tulsa. The decorations were butterflys and a big crown with the names of Queen Ginger and the two atten- dants, Anita and Sherrie on it. It was a very successful dance with approximately 175 people there. We raised around $450.00 but all was not profit. We feel that the dance was a perfect ending to a perfect homecoming football game. by Jerry Sharp -0- Shawn Clark and Jerry Sharp are dressed for the Sadie Hawkins Day of Spirit Week. rO Despite c tppled instruments and things, band comes off good Friday Despite crippled instru- ments and other assorted mishaps last Friday night the Demon Band still took the field (under solemn oath to return it when finished) to paricipate in the halftime homecoming ceremonies. The other condition was that we share it withthe pep club. Speaking of the pep club, they deserve commendation for holding up their part after running through it only once prior to the actual show. The band did it once alone and once with the pep club. We had early practice every day except Friday and will have it probably, every day this week, for we now are preparing for contest at Hennessey next Saturday. There will be, first off, an outstanding band chosen from classes B, A, and 2A. After this, the three will compete again for over.aU outstanding band. We have a great chance to win the whole sheebang. As an extra, we have been extended an invitation to compete at a Tulsa contest, should we receive a 'T' at Hennessey. However, in band receiving a "1" is not the equivilant of getting first place; it means you have performed as good as possible. It means a band is nearly perfect. The ratings vary from 1 to 6. There is a different rating for playing, performance, and inspec- tion. The first two are self explanatory. Inspection is standing at attention for a half hour to more than an hour while a judge cuts down you, your horn, your dog, your family, etc. And you can't do anything but say "Yes, Sir", "No, Sir", or "No excuse, Sir." The hardest way to do nothing possible. These three different ratings gives you 3 times as many chances to bungle, making it three times harder. You'll probably end up seeing in threes before it is done. Our style of marching is known as "corps" style. There are growing numbers of Drum and Bugle corps across the nation. Their title suggests what it is -- drums and bugles. If any of you have watched us, you will know we don't march the conventional way. We are one of the few high school bands to use this style, so we must be good. It's a lot harder to compete against other bands, so sum it all up. However, in Tulsa, all bands will be doing it. This weel is destinedl the hardest yet as we finishing touches We'll be altering memorizing musi landia, "The bide With Me", and" Fly Now"), and griping at and jura over each other, the most practiced, resultant part. To final show, come to Tonkawa game. I mentioned building a wall, wall is almost are coarsing off the and smoothing the The mortar has set, but we still support. Right now our is to the stage enough, it's good competition. But enough" isn't It has got to be the as we are out to We're on our way, stopping us now. funny feeling we're have Hennessey for fast all next week lunch room, too. what we've been right? by and
