Breaking Tradition Seniors Profit From Dance "Why are there so many people dancing?" Sophomore Alicia Parada commented sarcastically. lt was 10 p.m., 15 minutes after the dance had begun and the dance floor was still empty! Nevertheless, the D.J.'s kept playing those records enthusiastically. Just when things were beginning to drag a bit too much, Homecoming Queen nominees Nora Wilkerson and Mitzi McDowell decided to get things going and took to the dance floor. With this cue, others soon followed. Before the dance, most people had been at the game or out to eat. The fact that Elsik was losing didn't seem to affect anyone's mood. They came with the intention of having a good time and it certainly looked as if that was being accomplished. " . . . We're making a good time of it," Sophomore Shannon Collins said. Homecoming Queen Kim Adams arrived around 10:30 with her boyfriend Tim Moore. Kim was in something of a daze, but then who wouldn't be? "l'm real excited," she said. "l guess lt's a neat feeling to know you're a queen. lt's hard to believe. I guess -just - thanks everyone!" She was almost breathless, and her eyes glowed, the perfect image of an ecstatic person. By 11 p.m. the South House cafeteria was filled with a crowd of energetic dancers. 10 Homecoming Songs of the night were Top 40 favorites: She-Bop, Borderline, Let's Go Crazy, lJust Called To Say l Love You, The Reflex, Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go, and When Doves Cry. The D.J.'s dedicated We're Not Gonna Take lt to the seniors. Halfway through the dance they introduced and congratulated the duchesses, queen nominees and the queen. The smell of popcorn dominated the air. By the atrium couples were having photographs taken. Although many came with dates, a number of students just came with friends. Attendance was definitely up from previous years, and for the first time in the history of the dance, the Senior Class made a profit from tickets. Attire varied. There was really no dress code but the rules of the school dress code still applied. The students took this opportunity to dress up a bit. Almost all of the guys wore suits, some even renting tuxedoes. The girls were in formals or party dresses. The crowd began to disperse about midnight. Post-dance plans? "Cruise Westheimer!" exclaimed Sophomore Richard Palacio. Junior Jay Anderson commented thoughtfully, "I think l forgot to tell my parents that l'm not coming home tonight." The night ended when the D.J.'s played the ballad Drive by the Cars. Homecoming Queen Kim "We're very proud and feel she can represent the school Adams enjoys the moment like It was a tremendous as a homecoming queen with her father, South House honor," commented Mr. should."
