The council was formed at the beginning of the 1973-74 school year by Mrs. Frances Morgan and Mr. Bruce Harter, sponsors. The council raised money this year by having a raffle and by selling candles. They raffled off a cassette tape recorder, a camera and a big stuffed giraffe. The council is now planning a carnival in the near future. Another item on the agenda is a plan to obtain a banner for the gym. ' The council also donated 5100.00 to Mrs. Lue Hill's Afro-American choir to get robes and 520.00 to Mr. A. Dake for taking athletic pictures for the school's activities. As everyone knows, a student council is not complete without its officers. The Edmonson Junior High School students elected the following students to o ice: PRESIDENT - Rick Garrison VICE-PRESIDENT - Kim Osborn SECRETARY - Kim Freeman TREASURER - Reggie Moore Representatives Terry Farley Keith Swafford Venus Maynard Terri Thurber Robert Decker Michelle Sims Ron Murphree Ron Thornsberry Quinn Fraley Conerd Miner Tony williams Michelle Hunt Carlos Leflouria Rodney Williams Bernedia Word Ronnie Caddell Phyllis Slaven Bev Sturgill Cynthia Richerson Robin Hickman Don Leflouria Jon Snyder Grant Young Debbie McCormick Don Bloom Karl Hieber Ron Maples Larry James Denise Amison Eric Hamilton Toni Carmon Mike Mullins Dave Beck 7. lhe class of 7 Tbm Adkins Paul Adkins William Austin Rhonda Bevins Freddie Banks Roger Banks Brenda Barnett David Barnett Doug Bartley James Batchelor Lori Bean David Beck David Bickford Artie Blackmon Lilly Blankenship Don Bloom Farrolyn Bond Barbara Branham Marcius Brock Don Brodie Peter Brose Faron Brooks Belinda Burhans Paul Burke Tommy Butts Fred Caddeil Bob Carnahan Jay Carroll Kim Carroll Judy Caudill l 8.

VM ONLY ONE Mr. Time Keeper, Judges, Fellow Contestants: I am here today because of my keen interest in public speaking, along with the self-confidence that I plan to win. My mind is healthy and I cannot be brain-washed by today's ills because I am one in mind, body and soul. December 5, 1955, Mrs. Rosa Parks boarded a public bus in Montgomery, Alabama, extremely tired from slaving in the white man's home. She decided to sit in the section of the bus that was off limits to people of her color. The color I am re- ferring to is nBlack.n While sitting on the bus, a white man demanded that she give up her seat for him, and Mrs. Parks was only one. One dedicated to fight for her human rights. For years, Black people were characterized as being uignorant,H filthy and disorderly. Everything has changed in Black-white America, and yet nothing has changed. One hundred years ago, at a time of danger and doubt, Abraham Lincoln stood before Congress and pleaded for freedom for the slave in order to Hassure freedom to the free.H He added: HFellow-citizens, we cannot escape history. . .The fiery trial through which we pass will light us down, in honor or dishonor to the latest generation.H The words are still relevant. One hundred and thirteen years ago, in one of the Negro's perennial crises, Frederick the white Douglas warned that America's racial policy was Hfrought with evil to man, as well as to his victims.H He added: Uwe Negroes are here, and here we are likely to be. To imagine that we shall ever be eradicated is absurd and ridiculous. We can be remodified, changed and assimilated, but never extin- guished. We repeat, therefore, that we are here, and that this is our country. We shall neither die out, nor be driven out, but shall go with this people, either as a testimony against them, or as an evidence in thus favor throughout their gen- eration.H Many I am be a lazy settle to any other before my settle to I control Dr. Martin Luther King wrote the ungrammatical truth of an old These words are still relevant. contributions to our society came from only one person's idea. one. Yes, one with many values and convictions. HI will not settle to Black man, I will not settle to be an un-educated Black man, I will not for my household to be destroyed by drugs or settle to watch my children deteriorate allow my mind to become racist, I will not do, I must strive for the top. For I am only one. be poor, I will not settle man-made ills. I will not to eyes, I will not settle be second in anything I my destiny.H in his speeches to Blacks and whites. He quotes preacher.

We r fellow man. We must have selves and others. I am a person! A living, People are the creators of ideas. Greats such as Einstein, Bach and 0'Henry were just simple people, but the difference from them we are what we make of ourselves. Life is a chance. Sure, what ever way we go Whether to be an invalid or to be independent depends if we all have faith in life. Jesus once said, Ulf a mountain.U Can we take the first step to the journey to Can we? I know we can. Just dare to become part of yourself! Our thoughts produce leaders, not only in ou We must be super salesmen of our ideas.

This question will go unanswered, because we as people are the determining factors. I found a little poem that has so much truth in it I must share it with you. It is written by Walter D. Wintle and the title is nThe Man Who Thinks He Can.n For Thinks She Can.H If you think you are beaten, you dare not, you don't, I think you can't we women, nThe woman who you are, If you think f you'd like to win, but It's almost a cinch you won't..

Let's all take time and say, Hey, I like myself and you know something, I like you. My idea of citizenship is - it must start with respecting yourself then the school or city or even the world, but First become a person. Know and learn yourself If you need help, just reach out, someone will be there. If not a person, God will answer, just confront him. If you're in need, He's got what you want. If we all hang together, we can make it. Just have faith, most of all find your self respect. Look in a mirror. Look at your inner self shine, Look, you're a person. Thank you. 17.

BY DAVID PEWITT 36. BY ROGER BANKS X! ll I Believe in Music THE CHOIR EVENTS This year, we have a beautiful Afro-American choir under the direction of Ms Lue Hill. During our second year, we have had many engagements. The choir has selected for its name UThe Voices of Heaven,H and is composed of 39 black students from Edmonson Junior High School. Our main goals were to purchase robes and go on a trip. This was done through the cookie-candy sale, car washes and appeals to our local organizations and churches and the spring concert. The most exciting event was our participation in the W.C.H.B. Gospel Talent Search contest on April 12, 1974. The choir competed against 19 other choirs and received 550.00 for being one of the finalists. During the year, the choir has performed and done many things. Winter Fantasia ......

I'M JUST ONE By Cynthia Looney I'm just one, but I understand one big problem today. The word is pollution. Pollution is the biggest problem in the world. You know people are too lazy to do their fair share in keeping America beautiful. when this old world gets worse, people are going to wish they had listened to us who know about pollution. Ecology groups are encouraging you to help clean our world. I know because I was a Girl Scout and we once cleaned up a park and expressway. You know there are lots and lots of people. I made up a person and his name is Mr. Pollution. Mr. Pollution has a gang of dirty people. They are really pigs. when Mr. Pollution has an itch to go to work, he goes right to work and we must stop him. Our air is a victim of Mr. Pollution's dirty work. If we are to keep on living, we must close down factories that do all the polluting. when our air is all polluted, we shall be wearing gas masks. If we take them off, we would probably choke to death. Water is another victim. when all water is polluted, animals will go thirsty and people too. Last but not least - land pollution. There is an ugly problem. Land will soon be used up by trash and we certainly don't want our America to look like a pig sty. when people come to our America, we certainly want people to be proud of it. Pollution is a big dirty word today. It is mostly the big busi- nessmen who are able to make the future better, but they don't realize that they are making the future worse. They could make the future better by planning ahead with anti-pollution machines or make our cars non-polluting and factories also. I wish I were there to bop the person who thought industry can live with it. When one person does something, someone copies. That is how pollution was made. Instead of putting trash in a can, someone just decided to throw it on someone else's lawn or in our parks. We really need to make our world a better place to live in. Did you know that if we don't wipe our Mr. Pollution, and do their part so that our generation could see the end of Mr. Pollution. I'M JUST ONE By Richard Phillips I am only one and yet I am many things at different times. I would like to quote Maurice Nicoll. She said, HTo take another person as one, and the same at all times. To suppose he is one single NIH is to do violence to oneself. A multitude of different people live in each of you.H This story gave me a new way of looking at people and events around me. Life never stands still, you must look at the world around you, not as a collection of ready made objects and past events but as something that is happening now. I should not ask what is this, but rather, what's going on here? The other day, a friend was riding on a bus which stopped to pick up a young man with one leg amputated above the knee. He was new to crutches and had a hard time lifting himself up into the bus. While his struggle was going on, the driver leaned out his window and looked anxiously ahead. The passenger turned their attention away from the young man to see what was holding them up. There were sirens and flashing red lights. Just then, the driver settled back in his seat and drove off. My friend reminded to ask herself Hwhat's going on hereu just in time to see the young man and the driver exchange the briefest of smiles. Cexcerptedl 41. What would we do without these people?
