EUIUEETVIB P The assemblies of '78 - 79 were enjoyable this year for the students at Adams. This years' assemblies consisted of our homecoming week, a Christmas assembly with all the trimmings, and several pep assemblies. Our own Adams Choir sang their traditional "Fruitcake" song while Santa Freeman distributed presents to the retired Adams Faculty. Many students got involved at the Mime assembly. The student council rented the movie "Murder by Death" on Halloween for the students to view. All in all, the assemblies provided a needed break from class schedules, whether to promote school spirit or just plain old entertainment. Senior B.G. Bowl players stung the Juniors with a I6-I4 victory this year during homecoming week. to maintain their reputation by winning two years in a row. Both Junior and Senior teams started practicing at least four weeks before the big game. Plays were learned. running was stressed. they went through drills, but most of all they ran!! Coaches on both sides worked hard to make their teams the best. and their help was greatly appreciated. The two teams were tough, but the Seniors pulled it off by the same score as last year. ln the words of Senior Head Coach Steve Odonnell, "The Juniors said that they had more spirit, talent and determination. but we had more pointsl" The main objective of dances at Adams was for everyone to get a chance to get out and have a good time. Dances, as in the past, also gave classes and other organizations a chance to raise money for their activities. , ln the spring. Adams held the third annual dance marathon for muscular dystrophy. Atlantis students once again showed what they were made of, with many of the dancers completing the twenty-two hours. Allinvolved should be commended for a job well done. Whether it was an after game dance or the grueling twentyttwo hours of the marathon, everyonefjustt wanted to get out with friends and 'have a good time. There were several plays put on this year lby international and prospective Thespian members. The students put a lot of-'work into building sets, making costiilnes, and rehearsing. With the help of Ms. Gibson and Mr. Lentz, they succeeded in putting on very impressive performances. The first production of the year was two one act plays by Woody Allen, called "God" and "Death", These comedies attracted a large audience which helped greatly in the financing of the drama "Look Homeward Angel", which was presented a couple of months later. Juan Magay is I6 years old. a junior and comes from Madrid, Spain. ln the e ,Y . . 3.1. . .. ..,.,v4gqmuwi.,,.,..-.numnvt,.-..,..-,. ..,.-.f-llniv.,.-.-pvnuuurqew. ,W V Ll.S. he lives on Gunn Road with the Llpdegraffs.

Commercials was the theme for homecoming this year. The homecoming week, better known as spirit week. started out with the wearing of class colors. At lunch was the ice cream eating contest with the seniors winning at all three lunch hours. This was also the day of the B.G. Bowl game. The seniors won I6-I4. Tuesday was miss match day. At lunch was the toilet paper wrapping contest. with the seniors winning two out of the three lunch hours. Wednesday was college t-shirt day with the jazz band playing at lunch. Thursday was dress up as your idol day. with the cracker eating contest at lunch. Friday was the day of the assembly. The spirit yell was won by the juniors. ln the skits, all the classes showed a lot of talent, but the seniors came out in front. Then they went on to finish their not yet completed floats. I Saturday was game day. Despite the 34-I5 loss, not many of the fans' spirits were dampened. At half-time. Kathy Rhoton and Dave Fagan were announced as Homecoming Queen and King, respectively. The seniors won the float contest, with their "Gotcha" razor blade float. Saturday night was the dance, with Adrenalin as the band. All of the classes put forth a lot of effort to make that homecoming live up to its theme, "For the times of your life." Unlike previous years. this year's registration passed with few difficulties. The administration was successful in its attempt to simplify the process by instituting a new system. Under the new system, name cards were handed out to students, which they then exchanged for class cards. This made sure that students wouldn't be pulling cards for others. There were problems, as always. but this is the price we must pay for the elective system. ln all, this year was dramatic improvement from last year. The i978 - 79 school year was filled with a wide variety of both national and local happenings. Cult suicides in Guyana and the Summit Meetings were recog- nized throughout the world. On a local level, Michigan introduced a can and bottle return, while Rochester voters faced a millage renewal. Ron Guidry led the Yankees to another championship and Woody Hayes punched himself out of a job, to headline the sports scene. Muhammed Ali regained his heavyweight title while Michigan State's Spartans ridded themselves of NCAA probation. The past year was scarred by some unhappy events. A plane crash near San Diego registered as one of the LI.S.'s worst. Nelson Rockefeller departed from politics, dying at the age of 70. Raising of the drinking age from I8 to 2l caused great concern for Michigan IQBITBQGYS. state wide. Newspapers were jammed with articles on Chinese Deputy Prime Minister Teng's visit to America. Stories on a test tube baby and the Vatican City's Popes also received front page recognition. The entertainment world was headed by movie favorites, "Animal House", "Superman", and "Grease". ABC's "Mork and Mindy", became televisions' top comedy. A comeback by the Rolling Stones and a pair of albums by Billy Joel enabled them to sweep the charts in music. An important aspect of the theatre arts program at Adams is Troupe 2l63 chartered by the International Thespian Society. fl.T.S. is an internation organization for secondary schools from all of the United States and Canada.J Students qualify for lnternational by participating in school productions and thus earning points toward membership. Troupe 2l63 began the year in September with 27 lnternational members and 50 apprentices with hopes for attaining membership. Some of these apprentices will fall by the wayside, but a large number will have earned their points by spring, by working in this year's productions, and will have been initiated as qualified members of the International Thespian Society. This year's officers for Troupe 2l63 were, Beth Dettman, president, Rob Jones, vice-president of production, Ben Vernia, vice-president of Budget, and Mathilde Brown, vice-president of Management. Sponsors were Beverly Gibson and Timothy Lentz.
