"Being Drum Majorette is Drum Majorette. a real exciting experience. I When Penny was asked really do enjoy it. It kind of what she planned to do after makes me feel as if I am graduation she smiled and really accomplishing some- replied, "I really don't know thing in high school," what I want to do after high explains Penny when asked school but I have an idea; I how she feels about being would like to go to college Penny Rozean, Drum Majorette, raises her arms for command and the band takes notice. Straight from the field We were at the Mocker game and played several songs. The band didn't march at the game on account of drastic absentism of the performing personnel. The band from Mocker was to show, but disappeared somewhere on Knipe Street, west of the cemetery. Could we perhaps consult Bigfoot on the matter? Meanwhile, there was the Tonkawa game. If you were lucky enough to be there early, you would have been able to see us march. We had to march first because it was their homecoming. We ahd a full schedule this past week. We had ball games to attend on top of a contest Saturday. There was something we believe we forgot to explain about the contest last week. To qualify for a "l", a band must march (be in motion) for at least four minutes. Well, our show had only two and a half or three minutes of motion, so we marched only on exhibition, iut so the judges could give us their criticism. We heard about some of their criticism. One said we played too loud, Evidently, he wanted us to sound like every other This week we'll hear the rest of our criticism. Also, on Monday, we'll have election of officers. There are several things officers are required to do such as attend Band Boosters' meetings and other such fun activities. We are also preparing this week for marching at OSU Homecoming and also mend- ing sour spots in our halftime show. More sweat and labor. "This year, for a change, we have a band and we intend to use it. We have more people than we have ever had in the near past," says Mr. Taylor, our band director. This is true. This means, in essence, that we have more sound and power than in the past. We may not win everything we look at, but you can bet we're doing our best. We're doing all that can be expected of us. You can't expect more than best. Do you realize that with everyone giving 100%, we have got 5700% total effort going for us? We can turther that if we have your effort behind us too. We're good, but we could always be better. We must look to all that we can do, and not what we are. by Bob Reynolds and Tommy Hughes Book Fair Oct. 25-28 During the week of October 25 children and parents of the Perkins-Tryon Schools will have a unique oppbrtunity to browse and select for pt/rchase from hundreds of books for children and young people at the school's annual book fair.

"I have really enjoyed my last five years in band, but I feel as if I will really enjoy this year the most. We really have a good band and also a great band director. I'm really going to miss them all. We are very close as an organization and I know we will always be," sadly says Penny. Penny says her favorite part about band is the marching. "I love to march out on the field for halftime shows at football games. But, I want to make one thing clear, band isn't all fun and games; it's hard work. A person enters a world of experiences when he enrolls in band. I'm very glad to be an important part in that." by Sue Grimes "0- Gossip!
