Spanish Class Learns to Dance Debbie Parks Rosemary Rice Jerry Sharp Tim Spence Brenda Turner Terry Ventris Jenifer Summers and Tam, my, Sparkman I Porky, an unfortunate little pig who early in life donated his body to the study of science, is again at rest in the freezer in Mrs. Bran- stetter's room. Porky came to Perkins about 3 weeks ago and spent his first few days here being dissected by 5th grade student teacher Belinda Beams science class. They were studying the digestive system at the time. Then after a brief rest in the freezer, Porky again served humanity when Mrs. Branstetter's physiology class dissected his brain during their study of the nervous system. This experiment took place right after lunch and some of the students had to rely on Alka Seltzer to get them through the ordeal. Porky, however, remained serene during the whole affair and is taking a well deserved rest in the freezer until science needs him again.

The valves and slides on the horns froze in place and had to be unstuck forcibly. Besides the coldness, the band had a very good time and hopes everyone else did. The band also had a good time at the Cushing Christ- mas parade December 10. Two other bands participated in that parade. They were the Cushing High School Band and the Cushing Middle School Band. P-T Band won first place. Since it was during the day, it wasn't as cold as it was at Perkins, but still it was cold enough. The clarinet section is featured this week. It consists of Dena Kirby, Lisa Webb. Tammy Downey, Kim Taylor, Jody Pitts, Gaye Lyle, Rhonda Burten, Re- donda Dodson, Sharyl Bick- ell and Dayna Hughes. -Tommy Hughes FHA LEARNS DIET TIPS The FHA members had a meeting Monday, December 5, 1977. A guest speaker, Janice Williams, gave sev- eral tips about dieting. Some of them were: "Diet with a friend so it will be more fun. Never crash diet. Have a goal so that it will be easier." Mrs. Williams also handed out pamphlets about exercising to keep firm. After the guest speaker, Ginger Sadler led the girls in some songs and Dena Kirby dismissed the meeting. -Tammy Sparkman Middle School Has Gong Show ,funiors Excited About Rings "Santa Claus is coming to town," at least that is what Sheryl Bickell, Dayna Hughes and Janet Hart are telling the audience at the Gong Show.
