September 8-The first day of my senior year at Anacostia, and was the place ever
crowded! Even with Mr. Griffith, Mr. Lamb, and Mrs. l-lorn still asking us in for
"consultations," we probably won't get into the swing of things until the new gym and
classrooms are opened.
September I2-Our football team started off a little slow this season, but they sure are
trying hard, and that's all that matters. Even if they don't win every game, we have a
pretty glorious past to look back upon and a big future before us.
September 30-Someone came up with the real great idea of holding an assembly in
which club representatives gave the sophomores some idea of what their groups have to
offer in the way of special activities. Sure were a lot of new clubs represented-Future
Nurses, French, ACTIOS, just to name a few.
November I2-At last! No more crowded classrooms or gym olasses in the auditorium.
Our new addition to Anacostia was finally opened today, and let me tell you, it was
well worth waiting for. That's the sharpest looking gym you'll ever see-anywhere!
December 2-The basketball season opened today in a burst of glory with a game
between the varsity and the alumni, and the craziest thing happened. Right there in the
middle of the game, the ball figured it had had enough. There it rested on the rim of the
basket, refusing to come down.
December 6-l-le won! l-loyt Arlverson just added another feather to the head dress by
winning the District Voice of Democracy Contest. Now he'll go on to the Nationwide
Finals, and that's really doing something.
December 29-You might know we couldn't stay out of the newspapers, even for the
holidays. Bob Schooley made news this week by addressing a big science group that is
meeting in town. We're still in business!
January 9-This was a great day for the Indians. The whole tribe went to the gym to
hear the band play for our first all-school assembly. Luckily no one missed seeing Sarge
jitterbug right in the middle of "Boogie Woogie Mice." l-le really digs the beat the
January 28-I was among the representatives from all the clubs who met today in a new
type of pow wow. This was an Extra-Curricular Council formed for the purpose of
increasing attendance at meetings and improving clubs in general. Should be worth the
effort required to make it work.

February I7-l took the T. B. test given at school today, and was l surprised. lt didn't
hurt at all! Of course, it wouldn't have made any difference if it had. After Mr. Griffith
had recovered sufficiently from his test, he said he was real proud of the way everything
February I9-A number of us made the honor roll today-72 to be exact. We were
honored by an assembly in the gym, but best of all, our names are put on a new plaque
sponsored by the Leaders' Club. That's worth trying for again!
March 25-When l was leaving school today, l saw the baseball team practicing in the
new stadium. Man, can some of those guys pitch and batl Sure looks like a good season
coming up, so l don't want to miss a single game. Also, a few weeks ago, l noticed the
track team had given up the third floor in favor of that wide cinder track.
April I0-Wow, you should have been there! l sang in the talent show today, and l
must admit l was only fabulous. Of course, everyone else was pretty good too.
April 28-Unfortunately, l don't dig science too well, but a lot of Anacostians sure do.
Well enough, in fact, to make a distinctive showing at the annual Science Fair. They
will surely be among the many who will win scholarships. Speaking of scholarships, l'll
probably be beseiged with offers.
May 26-l just have a minute. What with graduation rehearsals, baseball games, awards
assemblies, and last minute homework, l'm pretty busy. Only a few more days now ....
June I2-l'm dead tired, but who cares? I just got home from the prom. Everyone sure
looked cool, but l bet my squaw and l were the neatest looking couple there. l'm flat
broke from all that expense, but it was worth it.
Golly everything is going so fast I can hardly keep up with the pace. Last night,
the prom: Sunday, the Baccalaureate exercises: next, Class Day: and before we hardly
know it, all will be over.
June I5-We had our final rehearsal this morning, and it's hard to believe, but the next
time l set foot in Anacostia, it will be for my commencement. lt's funny, but l don't
know exactly how l feel. Kind of lonely, l guess. Yet, l'm glad to be finished, but ....
Well, maybe by this time tomorrow l'll know.
June I6-l know now-from the minute they put the diploma in my hand, l knew. Sure,
it's a great feeling to have graduated from high school, but l've made friends and learned
things at Anacostia that l just can't forget-ever.
