This year the Fair was held April 4 and 5 at the University of Missouri, and nine students from Alton displayed projects. Science Fair competition was very stiff. There were many interesting and highly technical projects on display. Empha- sis seemed to be placed on means of conserving energy and other resources. The Fair was very much a learning experi- ence. Four students from Alton received awards for their projects. They are as follows: Sandy Thompson, second in Behavioral Science: Shana Johnson, second in Microbiology and a Cura- tor's scholarship; Roger Shelton, Honorable Mention in Chemistry; Sam Dallstream, Honorable Mention in Chemis- try.

"AND THE BAND Music was provided by Brahman of Iron- ton. Couples showed their appreciation by dancing or just sitting and listening. Another asset was the refreshments which were ele- gantly served.PLAYED ON"SENIOR TRIP—DESTINATION: Steward Beach was unan- imously the favorite spot visited during the senior trip. Bay fishing was also an experience the group will never forget. Debbie Bar- ton, Mrs. Williams, Ginny Minich, and Mrs. Hall seem to have had enough fishing for one day!GALVESTON, TEXAS After a 16-hour bus ride the seniors enjoyed a tour of Marine World, a fishing expedition, and an opportunity to play football on the beach.FUN IN Accompanying the seniors to Texas were Mr. and Mrs. Dale Johnson, Mr. and Mrs. Kenneth Hall and Mr. and Mrs. Wendell Williams. Mr. Williams shocked several of his group with his unpredicted striptease show on the beach.THE SUN Mr. Hall retired to the sickroom after approxi- mately ten minutes of bay fishing. Sea sickness did not interfere with Ricky Cowens' fishing, however. Each day Mr. Hall out- lined the day's plans before leaving the Holiday Inn. The seniors returned home tired and happy with lots of sand, shells, and memories.GRADUATION — A MILESTONE Commencement Monday, May 12, 1975 - 8:00 p.m. Kirt Hufstedler Mary Alice Young Processional "Pomp and Circumstance" Invocation Inspirational Thoughts Ms. Marilyn Minich "Time In A Bottle" Danny Simpson Benediction Recessional Kirt Hufstedler "Climb Every Mountain" Mary Alice YoungIN THE LIVES OF SENIORS Fifty-three seniors gradu- ated from Alton High School on May 12, 1975.
