Yearbook Class attends OSU workshop Friday, October 7, the Perkins yearbook class at- tended a workshop along with eight other schools. The workshop was held at the OSU Student Union from 9 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. and was sponsored by the Taylor Publishing Company. Phil Baum spoke at the workshop and presented us with many new ideas. One thing we will be doing that Mr. Baum suggested is a new way of selling the book; it is called the one day merchandising plan. There will be an announcement on a Thursday telling when the book will be soldl on Friday students will be reminded, on Monday they will be reminded again, and then on Tuesday the book will be sold during an assembly. Posters will be placed downtown so that those not in school that wish to buy a yearbook will know when and where tney may order theirs. The yearbook class wants to let you know that they are doing their best and WILL have the best 77-78 book ever. by Sandy Hancock -0 o Band News The Perkins-Tryon March- ing Band took a "rain check" on the Deer Creek game, but will, in all probability, be present in the game against Luther. This was the only game we haven't been to this season. Randy West won the office of President, while Kelley Smalley got the position of Vice-President in our elec- tion. On this occasion I would like to offer an apology to the Band Boosters and Band Officers concerning a certain remark printed in the preceding issue of The Journal. In it, I reported that the officers did nothing but sit in on Band Boosters' meetings and other such fun things. Well, I didn't realize I was crossing the grain in saying it, but evidently a few people slightly disliked it, so I will apologize: Please accept this apology. The officers and Band Boosters are essential functions of the band, since most of the money earned for the band does come in through the fund raising events sponsor- ed by the Band Boosters. One of these events is the Band Carnival, coming up October 29. Be sure to attend. Meanwhile, we are prac- ticing to complete our half-time show for the Luther r game next Friday, The show I I II BAND CARNIVAL f'('  P-TGYM  /J Doors Open  I l at7p.m.  \\;/ for Carnival  Food Serving Begins at 6p.m. SAT. OCT. 29.7 P. M. we march will be marched at the Ponca City Contest, on Wednesday, October 26. The band marched at the Oklahoma Sate Homecoming Parade, capturing 2nd place behind rival Gather. We would have liked, of course, to have won 1st, but practiced for a total of only three hours. You may have noticed, too, that there is not a piece of music carried by any member of the marching band. All of it is memorized. We'll spend this week to the same tune of "Work, Work, Work", as we continue to strive for first at District. / A remember, who's #i [ by Tommy Hughes & Bob Reynolds "0- Open House Open House will be held at Tryon School Tuesday, Octo- ber 25, and at Perkins Thursday, October 27, at 7:00 p.m. Everyone is invited to view the work done by the students. Refreshments will be served in the lunchroom. See the front page for details. Vicki Russell Meet Your Teacher "Mrs. Russell fits into the system so well we almost forget she is a new teacher," remarked one of Mrs. Vicki Russell's fellow teachers. But Mrs. Russell really is the new seventh, eighth and ninth grade science teacher. Mrs. Russell and her husband, a senior studying veterinary medicine, moved here from Wellston where she had taught for a year to be nearer the vet school. The Russells have no children, but they have Muppett, a dog named after the dog on the Muppet show, and a cat named Fluffy. "" i A graduate from OSU, after attending East Central at Ada for two years, Mrs. Russell enjoys photography and growing plants. When asked how she feels about our school, she stated, "For this size town it is a very nice school." We are all glad Mrs. Russell came to Perkins, and we hope' she and her husband continue to like our town and school. by Sue Grimes Book Fair Oct. 25.28 During the week of October 25 children and parents of the Perkins-Tryon Schools will have a unique opportunity to browse and select for purchase from hundreds of books for children and young people at the school's annual book fit: 6 The fair, which will . held in the libraries at Tryon and Perkins Elementary lg the week of Open House, will be attendea by every class from kinder- garten through sixth grade during scheduled visits.
