Cheryl Arnt, Cindy Dudas, Renell Kliemchen, Pam Kublick, Christine Levey, Ruthie McAfee, Felicia Murphy, and Elaine Zielke all had dreams of representing their community. After the balloting, Ellen Newsome, Miss Eau Claire for 1976 gave the 1977 crown to Renell Kliemchen. First runner-up was Cheryl Arnt, 2nd runner-up was Pam Kublick. Pam was also chosen Miss Congenial- ity. 10Twinkle Twinkle Little Star was the theme for the 1977 Miss Sodus Contest. Contestants were Maxine Stover, Nancy Palis, Kris Mckie, Mary Edinger, Judy Leitz, Sharon Dukesh- eaer, and Lisa McGowan. When the judges final decision was announced, Maxine Stover became Miss Sodus, Nancy Palis was 1st runner up and Kris Mckie was 2nd. Mary Edinger and her '’bull" finished by being selected Miss Congeniality. 11Homecoming week, sponsored by the Student Senate, was a big success this year, despite temperatures of below 20. Candidates for Homecoming Royalty were Sue Hass and Kevin Burbach, Maxine Sto- ver and Mike Fields, Cindy Dudas and Joe Simaz, Elaine Zielke and Jeff Hamer, Ruthie McAfee and Mike Cochran, Cheryl Reimer and Dale Ostema, Lori Dohm and Kevin Rodell, and Felicia Murphy and Alan Eisner. Homecoming Queen was Sue Hass and Homecoming King was Kevin Burbach. Junior Homecoming class representatives were Marlene King and Tim Weber, Sophomore representatives were Daryla Hunter and Ronnie Tipton and Freshman representatives were Melinda Flowers and Jeff Jewell. t 12"Fairytales of the Future” was the theme for this year's Homecoming in which the Sophomore class was the winner of the float competition with a space view of Alice in Wonderland! The one disappointing part of Homecoming week was the game itself, in which the New Buffalo Bisons beat the Beavers. After the game the Student Senate ended the successful week by presenting "Felix,” the rock band for Eau Claire's Homecoming Dance. Felix played mostly rock songs, but Sue and Kevin danced a few songs together, one of which was Peter Frampton's "Baby, I Love Your Way.” 13Slaves, Snow and Smash-Em Eau Claire's Homecoming week activities included a Battle of the Sexes, Smash-Em Crash-Em Day. Crash-Em Day was followed by a Slave Auction on Tuesday, Slave Day on Wednesday, and Costume Day on Thursday. Homecoming Day, Friday, November 5, was a busy one with activities including Decoration Day, the Float Parade, the football game against New Buffalo and finally the Homecoming Dance.Faculty A WoAD FRom ouR SponsorsEau Claire Schools Have New Superintendent A yearbook is really a memory book.

The main characters were John Glassman as Charlie Brown, Diane Stolfo as Lucy, Marialice Cahoon as Snoopy, Doug Horie as Linus, and Dan Newman as Schroder.

In his first year as head coach, Tom Ferry relied on sen- iors Joe Simaz and Jeff Harner to lead his team of one freshman, five sopho- mores, four juniors, and ten seniors. Jeff, a seasoned quarterback, led the team well all year. Joe, a senior half- back, was named to the Red Arrow Conference team on defense. Joe was also honored as a high school All- American. One of the major drawbacks of the 1976 football season was the bad weather. Much of the season was played in the mud, rain, and snow. 100BOTTOM ROW, Left to Right: Mike Bailey, Dennis Durham, Kevin Burbach, Lyle Merrill, Larry Dewey, Joe Simaz, Jeff Harner, Rick Rice, Monroe Wright, Russell Griffin, Coach Ray Deja.

Love, Lori and EllenUp close and personal, as the zoom lens of the cam- era sees our lives, we realize that each of us lives in a world of our own. Like the intersection of sets our lives are influenced by the lives of others. No one exists as the null set, void of influence by some other person. We have a choice. Will our influence be positive or negative? My life has been influenced by my work with the staff this year. I hope that my set of experiences with them has been as positive for them as it has been for me.Call 926-7545 PLAZA ONE • HOUR MARTINIZING Bobbie and Clem Hardin — Owners 101 5 E.

TtticAifA TO THE CLASS OF 1977: It is a strenuous age in which we live. Everyone seems to be trying to get ahead of someone else. Ideals are forgotten in the mad rush to acquire material possessions. The greatest need today is for more old-fashioned charac- ter, honesty, integrity, kindness, and love for one's fellow men; a slowing down of the rush long enough for us to realize that we are not here for so very long a time. To be able to take life as we find it is the key to whole- some living. It is the desire of everyone to find success and happiness. Often it is thought that the acquisition of wealth will insure happiness, but nothing could be farther from the truth. Happiness comes from within, and rests securely on simple goodness and a clear conscience; with accepting life as one finds it; in giving his best in everything he does; in the realization that no matter what one's lot in life, each one of you is important. As the most of your days in the future must of necessity be spent with work, carefully choose your vocation, and work at the work you enjoy doing; for only when you do will you be truly happy. Our best to all of you in the Class of 1977. It is our hope that all of you find happiness in the years ahead.
