" Raising goats can be very rewarding — I once raised a pure bred and sold it. The main reason I raise goats is because they make good pets. They can be taught tricks, and are just as affectionate as dogs. The goat I have now even watches TV with me! Coats certainly are fun to have around. " — Buz Miller " When I was a freshman, I wanted to join the Symphonic Band. They needed someone who would play the xylophone, so I volunteered. I play the piano, so I didn ' t find the xylophone difficult to master because the keyboards are similar. It does take practice, but I enjoy it; the xylophone is such an unusual instrument. " — Suzanne Ramsey " I guess the main reason I started to design stained glass windows is because of my stepmother. She has her own workshop and she makes windows as office ornaments or just for decoration at Christmas time. It ' s really interesting work. I did several windows over the summer, but now that school has started I haven ' t been able to begin designing one. It ' s a very complex process. The glass itself is chemically colored but I have to cut it following a pattern and then fit it together with lead. I ' ve been doing it for almost a year now, and I find it fascinating. " — Michelle Keefe " This summer I began working in my dad ' s deli in Walnut Creek. Now I do some of the cooking there, and sometimes I have a chance to make one of our specialities, like our four foot submarine sandwiches. I ' m planning on pursuing a career as a chef — my dream is to own my own restaurant. " — Chris Cavallo 111 FREE TIME

Take a shake. As Coach Finn introduces each Varsity football player to the rally crowd, Dave Crane joins the rest of his teammates. Team spirit and Have you ever listened to other people laugh? They chuckle, snicker, wheeze, gig- gle, snort, guffaw, scream, roar, titter, and make some of tfie strangest noises ever heard. Sometimes I wonder why we laugh at all. Why do we enjoy gasping for breath, turning red in the face, collapsing on the floor, and having our eyes wa- ter until we are practically cry- ing? What ' s the point? A lot of laughs sound simi- lar, but some really stand out from the crowd. Judy Rosen mentioned, " When I laugh in an assembly or rally, people tell me later that they heard me and knew it was me. " Some people, understand- ably, laugh more often than others. Leslie Wood com- mented, " I laugh all the time; everything seems funny. " Jenny Hoots added, " Once I start laughing, I keep thinking of funny situations, and that makes me laugh harder. " Some people never stop laughing. They just manage to calm down from one spasm when they are seized by an- other fit of giggles. Preeti Jun- narkar commented, " Once I saw something really funny before walking into church. I was having a spasm right in church and I couldn ' t stop. " Clint Williams added, " My brother and I always start laughing in really quiet places, like fancy restaurants. The quietness makes laughter hard to control. " It ' s catching, too. " If one person is laughing everyone else starts. Sometimes they laugh at what the other person is laughing at, sometimes at the other person ' s laugh, " Bruce Smith said. One of the hardest things in the world is suppressing a fit of irresistible laughter. Kelley Ryan said, " In math something funny always happens. I can ' t stop laughing even when ev- eryone else is quiet. " But what makes people laugh? Missy Calhoon related, " Dumb things make me laugh. Once I was in the grocery store and I couldn ' t figure out how to open those little plastic bags that you put fruit in. Well, I ri- pped open the wrong end so that when I put my oranges in they rolled all over the floor! " Can you imagine the world without laughter? What would we do to show our happiness? It ' s the ability to snicker at a zero out of twenty on an ab- stract math quiz, giggle hel- plessly at a friend ' s joke, and roar at a comedian ' s act that shows us how necessary and priceless the gift of laughter re- ally is. 113 LAUGHING
