Getting It Together Strolling up and down the make- shift aisles at the garage sale, you are surrounded by thousands of old baseball cards and other memorabilia. It all reminds you of the baseball cards you collected when you were six. You hurry home and search through the attic for your favorite Willie Mays and Mickey Mantle cards. After two hours, you find them and figure that they are worth ten times as much as they were the day you pulled them from their wrappers or traded for them with your best friend. 4 i Collecting has been a hobby for years, and many students discovered the challenge of col- lecting everything from old coins to stuffed animals. " I ' ve been collecting baseball cards since I was five, " mentioned Don McGlamery. " I have about 5,000 cards going back about ten years. " Stamps and coins as well as baseball cards increased in value as the years passed. Joe Parlette said, " I ' ve been col- lecting coins for about six years. It is a hobby that I ' ve al- ways been interested in, and I have many valuable coins. " Instead of being profitable, some collections were just for looks. Charles Waite com- mented, " I have a collection of beer bottles from all over the world. It is really good look- ing. " Chris Whiting added, " My sports uniform number has always been 26 so I collect anything with the number 26 on it. " As you open Christmas mail, you notice a Bolivian stamp on one of the letters. You grab a pair of scissors and cut the stamp out. Then you search your closet for the rest of your collection and mount the stamp, hoping that it will in- crease the value of your collec- tion. Up to the top. As the U.S. mint planned to stop making pennies out of copper, they became much more valuable. Taylor Biederman finishes filling up a can with pennies. Uncommon currency. Tom Nootbaar looks at an 1 882 silver dollar through a magnifying glass. Tom ' s collection contained a wide variety of coins and was worth approximately three thousand dollars. Solitary shuffle. Dave McDonald spends an evening organizing his baseball cards. Baseball cards had to be kept in perfect condition, or thev became less valuable, 214 PEOPLE AND EVENTS

Elfin eatery. The Christmas elves breakfast at Millie ' s before school. The gathering was a fun way to get the girls in the Christmas spirit. Santa ' s helpers. Jackie Fee, Eileen Simon, and Julie Sussman gather bags of mistletoe from Eileen ' s car, preparing for that day ' s deliveries. The mistletoe was labeled on December 1 6th and sent the following day. fcW Season ' s Greetings The cold weather sets in, December rolls around and selec- ted seniors clad in green tights, red skirts, red, green or white shirts, and Santa hats crop up in halls and classrooms all over school. The Christmas " elves " were in full force, delivering their anony- mous mistletoe messages once again. The popular messages were actually address labels, with notes written on them, tied to sprigs of mistletoe with a red ribbon. The mistletoe sale, an annual fundraiser for the se- nior class, presented an oppor- tunity for sweethearts and friends to express their secret sentiments. The sale also tempted pranksters to play practical jokes for the mere 50c each message cost. Charlotte Monroe said, " A lot of the mes- sages were signed anony- mously or written in code, which made it fun to try to fig- ure out who sent them. " Ten girls and one boy volun- teered to skip one class on ei- ther December 17th or 18th to dress up and deliver the bun- dles of mistletoe to their sur- prised recipients. Although the first reaction to being an elf was humiliation, none of the " elves " regretted it. Meg O ' Dea admitted, " At first I thought I would be embar- rassed to be an elf, I liked to get into the Christmas spirit! " Hunting for humor. Jackie Fee sifts through the remaining mistletoe to find the funniest messages. Many of the notes were written and sent as jokes. Welcome surprise. A smile appears on the face of Mike Heckman as Terri Stevenson delivers mistletoe from Alda Masters, his girlfriend. Couples often sent mistletoe to each other. Crab bag. Kellv Ryan and Cindy Sinott rummage through a bag of mistletoe to choose their next delivery. The sprigs of mistletoe were tagged with the person ' s name and class period, in order to make distribution quick and easy. 213 PEOPLE AND EVENTS
