m / The Journal, Thursday, Nov. 20, 1975 - 3 Compiled by the Perkins-Tryon High School Journalism Class Editors Margaret Schroeder & Lisa Sontee .-.At OSU Homecoming Parade... by Darla Hm It was a crisp cool Saturday morning, Nov. 22, with excitement filling the air when the Perkins-Tryon High School Band boarded the bus for the O.S.U. Homecoming Parade. This parade, I'm sure, is one we will never forget. It was one of the largest and longest parades we have attended. It was two miles long! Can you imagine how many sore muscles and blisters were the result of that parade? But all this was forgotten when we were awarded the second place trophy judged on sound, marching and gen- eral appearance. What an honor! The entire band watched the overwhelming O.S.U. victory over Kansas State. The worn out band members then returned home, not at all too {,oon. Even though the band was very honored with the trophy, much of theq~raise and honor should "be given to Mr. Kent Taylar, our band director. Without him to help, needless to say, we would have been at a parade without a whistle, or should we thank Mrs. Tayior's mother? The band would like to voice their appreciation to all who helped cheer us on to what we believe is a "Demon VictoryV' ---To 'Main Artery', Drug Center, State Hospital--- e e by Merllya Cundlff world on Thursday, Nov. called the Main Artery. ture, old clothes, etc. If We thank the administra- Mental problems any- 13, when they took an This was a place where men anyone could help, it tion for making it possible. one?
