Theory Supported By Students
The automobile, that fantastic invention all students
depend on for transportation if they can afford it, was
also a way for the individual to express himself.
Cruisin' Monroe in a custom painted car with a
rebuilt engine guaranteed to kick up "chicks", or iust
running around in a "beater", praying that it will get
you home from school, were ways to proiect your
personality. In other words, you are what you drive.
So as tradition demands, here are selected senior

In Transportation Scene
The return of the skateboard was felt this year as
students found their way to and from school. Many styles
of skateboards appeared, and metal and wood styles from
a few years back were replaced by plastic.
Bicycle riders fluctuated in numbers according to the
weather conditionsg the bike alley between the foundry
wing and C-wing was used once again to keep bicycles
safe from theft. Motorcycle riders diminished in l975-76.
Some cyclists began to use cars rather than their bikes.
Construction of the Portland Mall in downtown Portland
on S.W. 5th and oth streets began in November, and bus
lines were moved from 4th and 5th streets to oth street
alone. This made bus transportation more efficient and
faster. S.W. 5th was closed to construction.
ABOVE: View of S.W, 5th and Washington Streets. Construction
for the Portland Mall forced closure of 5th street. LEFT: When the
sun came out, so did the many bicyclists. Finding a slot in the
bicycle racks took some time. BELOW: Instead of riding the bus or
riding o bicycle to school, Tom Gibbons il IJ now uses o better
way. Finding a parking slot is the only problem Tom encounters.
